* The end of the sidequest for Fiona's forest. Lucca gets the chance to relive or alter the point in her past in which her mother's legs become crippled. She wakes up as the rest of the party sleeps, and the ambient soundtrack of the gate/time warp plays in the background. She wanders into a clearing to find a red time gate. Reliving the worst moment of her life can be disturbing enough, but if you fail to free her from Taban's machine, Lucca's mother cries out for one last time before the screen goes black. Two seconds later, you hear Lucca's mother scream. The rest of the sidequest (success or failure) is in complete silence, aside from sound effects.

** It gets better. If one listens closely, they can hear ''laughter'' in the background. It's not out of the realm of possibility to consider that Lavos is ''sentient and enjoys the destruction it's causing.'' Sleep well!

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjnZlBQDgt4 That noise]] that Lavos makes. It's like the audible equivalent of the spelling of "Cthulhu" - if it were real, it would be a Sound That Man Was Not Meant To Hear, and you should be glad this is the best your TV/Nintendo DS speakers can do to replicate it.

** A new player exiting Bangor Dome onto the 2300 AD world map for the first time is in for a shock in general. A barren wasteland, ruins and craters everywhere... but the cherry on top is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbdcW-rPsi8 the freaking world map music]]. It socks you in the gut immediately with a low piano note, and while the winds are playing a hopeless melody, the percussion lags behind the song's tempo considerably, sounding like broken chimes or the pulley of a lonely flagpole beating against the metal.

Or the pendulum of a clock winding down to the last few hours before even what little non-Lavos life remaining on the planet goes extinct.

* How about the events at the end of the Ocean Palace where [[spoiler: [[TheHeroDies Lavos disintegrates Crono]]]]! Sure, [[spoiler: [[BackFromTheDead you can save him later]]]], but still. It comes off as completely unexpected and even with [[spoiler: Crono's and [[UrbanLegendofZelda Schala's]] HeroicSacrifice, Zeal still is destroyed by Lavos, and not only that but it also causes the Black Omen to be created]].

** If you take the time gate to 1999 A.D., you don't hear the normal time gate ambient track. Instead, you get a heartbeat that starts slow and gets quicker every few seconds.



* The end of the sidequest for Fiona's forest. Lucca gets the chance to relive or alter the point in her past in which her mother's legs become crippled. The sound of the Gate/time warp constantly playing in the background can be disturbing enough, but if you fail, Lucca's mother cries out for one last time before the screen goes black. Two seconds later, you hear Lucca's mother scream. The rest of the sidequest (success or failure) is in complete silence, aside from sound effects.

Added DiffLines:

** If you go for the Programmer's Ending in a New Game + (using the right telepad immediately when seeing Lucca's device), the inner section of Lavos not only features the heartbeat but ''an even more disturbing scream'' that just gets louder and louder until everything else is muffled by it.
