* In ''BaldursGateIIThroneOfBhaal'', Anomen asks Keldorn about one of the battles the older knight was in, clearly expecting a story about his legendary heroism. Keldorn instead tells him, dispassionately and in full detail, about how he and his unit were subjected to [[ColdBloodedTorture horrific atrocities]].
** To sum up: [[spoiler: First, Keldorn's unit was betrayed to the enemy and decimated in battle. Second, the enemy captured them and stripped everyone naked, living or dead. They then tied each living knight to one of their dead fellow soldiers, and left them all on the battlefield. As they they were ForcedToWatch their friends' bodies rot, some of them died of exposure or went insane. Keldorn escaped, saved everyone he could, and then sneaked into the enemy camp and killed everyone who had done this to them.]] It's a testament to his HeroicWillpower that he's ''still'' fighting after all of that.

* The illithid cave. You're captured the instant you enter the cavern and is forced to fight in a arena. You escape and have to fight your way out with every room containing some of the [[DemonicSpiders worst creatures]] in the entire game. And the only way to escape the complex is to slay the Elder Brain. Have fun!

** There's nothing in the game that says this, but you might still wonder if one of the flayed bodies ringing the top of Tazok's tent could be Kivan's wife.

* If you visit the Temple District at night, you'll run into a Shadow Theif. He won't attack, but he will start babbling a deranged "song" when you speak to him. It sounds like the typical ravings of a madman at first...then the song describes how an innocent man was forced to watch his friends and family be butchered because he refused to get involved in the current guild war. The song suddenly becomes much more chilling when you realise who the song is describing.

** The wraith is particularly brutal with Aerie. It will make her think that [[spoiler: her mother]] has been killed while searching for her and she will believe it for the rest of the game. Talk about trauma.

to:

* The wraiths in ''Throne of Bhaal''. These...''things'' exist solely to torment anyone they encounter by reading their minds, taking on the forms of their deceased loved ones, and then reciting all their deepest doubts, fears and failures to them, all the while "reminding" them how said loved one's death was their fault. It's borderline MindRape, and is enough to drive ''[[LadyOfWar Jaheira]]'' to near-tears.
* Irenicus's lab may become tedious in later playthroughs, but it's chillingly terrifying the first time you go through it. You've just recently escaped after weeks of torture and are now wandering around, no weapons, no armor, no spells, no companions except the equally weakened Imoen, Jaheira and Minsc. You have no idea where the rest of your friends are or what befell them. You have no clue what's going on, where the resident [[MadScientist Mad Wizard]] is or when he'll be back. It's eerily quiet. And every door you open reveals horrors worse than the last. Brrr....
* [[spoiler:Yoshimo's description of the {{Geas}}, and [[FateWorseThanDeath what happens to those who try to break it]].]]

** Anyone familiar with the dream sequences of the first game will likely find the second ones lukewarm at best. The dreams you have in those are much more symbolic, but backed by the narration of Kevin Michael Richardson and an excellent background theme and can be quite freaky to the unprepared, especially if you haven't already been spoiled as to their nature.

** For extra scary points, try bring Aerie there. Aerie, like all the [[WingedHumanoid Avariel]], is claustrophobic. Upon realizing where she is and that there's a very good chance that she'll never see the sky again, she suffers a HeroicBSOD.
