** The Vardi are normally robots that speak emoji, but when they go in to kill mode, their faces, with the skull eyes and the skeletal teeth, it's scary.

* ''Doctor Who'' Nightmare Fuel is normally at least ''somewhat'' reduced by the end of the episode, because the monsters get defeated. In this one? ''We have no guarantee the thing is dead.'' Nor do we know if there are ''more of them.''

* ''Doctor *At the climax of the episode when Biff is trying to throw the Doctor off the shuttle, he yells at Professor Hobbes and ''his son'' Jethro to help him to do it. ''A father is forcing his teenage son to commit murder with him.''

** Another horrifying part is when the Doctor realizes that he must hook up the dead Wirrn's mind to his own brain in order to find out what killed it so that they can find its weakness. It's made very clear that the process could easily kill him, or cause him to remain a part of the Wirrn's mind forever. The Doctor himself even seems scared, as he's clearly only doing it because ThisIsTheOnlyWay to find a way to save the ship. He even gives Vira a gun and tells her not to hesitate to use it if something goes wrong. When the machine is activated, the Doctor barely keeps himself from screaming several times, before he seems to loose consciousness during a process that looks a lot like MindRape. As soon as the process is completed, Sarah Jane quickly disconnects the Doctor from the machine, however, Vira is more wary and holds Sarah Jane back as the Doctor comes to consciousness. He's completely glassy eyed, doesn't seem to be aware of the two of them, and is in some sort of trance as he slowly repeats, "Wirrn. Wirrin. Wirrin," in a mindless voice. Vira and Sarah Jane are absolutely terrified, and Vira even takes aim at the Doctor before Sarah Jane grabs the gun out of her hand. Thankfully, he's fine a minute later, but the overall effect is still very unnerving and is probably one of the most psychologically terrifying moments of the entire series.

** It's much, ''much'' worse than falling asleep. The Mara can possss you from your ''dreams''...and humans not only go insane and then die if they cannot dream for long enough, the only way the Doctor can temporarily suppress the constant micro-dreams a human has to protect Tegan from the Mara also renders he deaf and somewhat less than coherent, so the read of the group ends up losing track of her.

* The Special Weapons Dalek in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E1RemembranceOfTheDaleks Remembrance of the Daleks]]". MoreDakka combined with NightmareFuel.

* The Special Weapons Dalek in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E1RemembranceOfTheDaleks Remembrance of the Daleks]]". MoreDakka combined with NightmareFuel. We never see it fire on a human being (and are instead shown its firepower via its total destruction of two enemy Daleks) because there would be ''next to nothing left'' if it did.

** Also of note: This is the first time in the series where the graphics are now advanced enough to show people turning see-through when they get zapped by Daleks, revealing their skeletons for a brief moment as they fry.

* Even with his LargeHam tendencies (or possibly [[NarmCharm ''because'']] of them), the Master is terrifying. Imagine a being that is the same species as the Doctor, but is insane/evil and wants to either rule the universe or destroy innocent lives just to spite his arch-nemesis (who happens to be his former best friend). Not only that, but he is shown to be just as smart (and is implied at times to be more intelligent) than the Doctor and has used that intelligence to invent devices that kill people in horrific and gruesome ways.
