This is common in horror/sci-fi stories dealing with a "master of fear" (such as [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy]], [[Literature/{{It}} Pennywise]], or [[Franchise/{{Batman}} the Scarecrow]]), in which the monster [[IKnowWhatYouFear uses his powers to guess his victim's worst fear]], and then use it against him/her to make them a [[CowerPower quivering heap]]. Enemies who know about this weakness are prone to use FlawExploitation and as [[WeHaveWaysOfMakingYouTalk a way of coercing the hero]]. It can also overlap with TheDreaded. If an innocuous object causes fear that renders someone helpless, it may overlap with WeaksauceWeakness. Also compare AbsurdPhobia, where an unusual (and usually non-plot relevant) fear is PlayedForLaughs.

A seemingly invulnerable character reveals that they are deathly afraid of ''X''... therefore, ''X'' is certainly going to be a recurring obstacle, [[KryptoniteIsEverywhere no matter how unlikely]]. The {{Trope Namer|s}} is a line in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', reminding us that IndianaJones hates snakes when he discovers that the Well of Souls is crawling with them.
