* ''{{Planescape}}'' has the Vaath, which uses a tentacle with a sphincter-mouth on the end to burrow through your flesh and organs until it reaches your spine and severs it, paralysing you. Then it tortures you to death.

** Everything the daelkyr do qualifies as NightmareFuel. These are people whose main slave race was created by ''fusing two goblins together''. These are people who bred a variety of abominations to use as clothing, including a suit of armour that's actually a limbless crab. These are the inventors of the beholder -- and frankly, anyone who could develop a creature whose reproduction consists of vomiting up [[strike:your young]] and then biting off your uterus presumably ''runs'' on NightmareFuel. (Important memo to whoever at TSR or Wizards Of The Coast who came up with that one: you are one sick, sick puppy).

* The Unholy Scion is a horrific little example of DemonicPossession. Usually created when a fiend possesses an unborn baby, the result is truly a FetusTerrible; it's aware, sentient and intelligent even in the womb, and has a ''permanent'' CharmPerson effect on its mother. Naturally, being a demon, it likes to make its host-mother do all sorts of terrible things for its own amusement, something a sadistic DungeonMaster can really have some "fun" with. Imagine a beloved pregnant matriarch whose many loved children are disappearing... and then imagine it's because she's ''eating them'' at the behest of her unborn child, simply because it amused it. Worse, the mother is perfectly ''aware'' that what she's doing is wrong, but the unnatural love for her child [[MindRape forced upon her by its powers]] [[AndIMusScream leaves her helpless to obey]].

* A bit of meta horror: crack open any of the older bestiaries and flip to the 'Giants' section. In the middle of describing encounters and such, it will suddenly mention the statistics of their newborns. No context, no reason to be there, but it is. When Gygax said AlwaysChaoticEvil, he knew exactly [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide what he was doing]]

** And it doesn't get any better when the Scion is born. It just graduates to the position of EnfantTerrible. Now you have the [[SarcasmMode lovely scenario]] of a perfectly normal baby who uses both its permanently-besotted mother and its own array of BlackMagic powers to guard itself until it's physically strong enough to enact its corrupt and sadistic urges.
** Oh, and the icing on the cake? You ''can't'' exorcise an Unholy Scion. Attacking a body with such an underdeveloped soul means the fiend effortlessly absorbs the original spirit. From an outside perspective, there's nothing to exorcise. You can only kill it when it's born... or perhaps, before.
** Oh, and it gets worse! See, whilst ''most'' Unholy Scions are created through deliberate DemonicPossession by fiends, they can also form ''spontaneously''. If a woman happens to conceive through union with a fiend in an area of high Taint, then the result is always an Unholy Scion.

** Speaking of Narm, let's linger on Atropus a little. This Elder Evil's moniker is [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "The World Born Dead"]] -- a stillborn godling that takes the form of an entire ''planet'' made out of undead flesh and bone and corrupted elemental matter. Its surface teems with swarming armies of undead, and Atropus is defined first and foremost by its unquenchable hatred for all life, which sees it roaming the universe, causing a ZombieApocalypse on any world it approaches, hoping to annihilate all life and replace it with undeath. Where's the narm, you ask? Simple; Atropus takes the form of a planet with a face. It's a vague, shadowy semblance of a skeletal face, visible from orbit, with a hollow mouth gaping in an eternal scream of hatred.

*So you know that 3.5e spell ''Avascular Mass''? Y'know, the one that [[BodyHorror forces the target's blood vessels out of their body and makes a wall out of them?]] ''[[NauseaFuel A wall that traps people inside?]]'' And the best part is it only takes away ''half'' of the target's Hit points, so it guarantees the target will be alive while it happens.

* The ''[[TabletopGame/D20Modern Urban Arcana]]'' campaign setting [[MageInManhattan combines fantasy and realistic settings]]. It includes familiar monsters from ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', which is fine...and then there's the new ones. Such as the "Urban {{Wendigo}}". A homeless person's bitterness and sense of disconnection from humanity eventually causes them to degenerate into a subhuman, [[TheTimeMachine Morlock]]-like beast that, while still looking essentially human, preys on lost people in the city. And just think: [[ParanoiaFuel ANY homeless person could be one of them]]...

* A sourcebook called the "Book of Vile Darkness" is a whole vat of NightmareFuel, supplying the GM with ideas for various heinous acts, spells such as 'MindRape', 'Wall of Eyeballs', or 'Rapture of Rupture', as well as several monsters. One particular horror is an abyssal being who feeds by paralysing its victims and then digging through their bodies with a toothed feeder tendril. Bonus? The creature is naturally telepathic, so while it is munching on the victim's guts, everyone nearby (including the victim) will feel what they taste like.
