* Lady Grey's tomb, with the beetles under the sand. And then there's the banshees, who attack by sending shadowy [[CreepyChild creepy children]] after you, taunting you in their spooky voices all the while.
* The Banshees themselves whisper to you about things your character has done in the past.
** The FlavorText says they "demoralize their victims by telling them everything they don't want to hear," which means it may or may not be true. However, chances are once they start telling you a story, like how Rose [[spoiler:didn't die straight away from Lucien's shot, but heard Sparrow get blown out the window and even had time to '''cry''' before Lucien finished her off]], or how Hammer [[spoiler:secretly blames the Hero for the death of the Abbot and has vowed revenge]], most players will be horrifically compelled to listen, as a Banshee is invulnerable as long as her creepy Shadow children are alive and attacking you.

** And her old diary (found inside Grey House) implies that [[spoiler:Jack of Blades convinced her to do so]].



* In ''The Lost Chapters'' portion of the game, Jack of Blades[[spoiler:' disembodied voice taunting the Hero after the completion of the Necropolis quest, especially when he tries to sway the Hero to perform all the 'evil' options (kill Thunder, Briar Rose, and the Guildmaster)]].

** The story of how Oakvale came to be Wraithmarsh is as chilling as it is [[TearJerker/{{Fable}} saddening]], especially when Theresa relates the tale to the Hero via Guild Seal. [[spoiler:Apparently, one villager (the future Reaver) made a DealWithTheDevil for immortality. And because of [[ImmortalityImmorality one man's selfishness and fear of death]], a bright and beautiful hamlet is reduced to a cursed, monster-infested wasteland.]] It also speaks to the series's running theme of how a simple choice, be it good or evil, can have far-reaching consequences.



* Most of the "See the Future" DLC has some manner of NightmareFuel in it, especially the cursed snow globe. When you start off, it's just sorta-weird naked guys who look like they're painted funny colors and drain the color for everyone/everything. No one seems to be dead, or even in danger, just annoyed. But later, you find a schoolhouse, and you can read the teacher's book...that says she found one of her students in such horrible condition that she only describes the amount of blood splattered everywhere, while her classmates stood grinning around her. ''Then she decided it must have been an accident.''
* In the same section of the DLC, one of the lengthy key puzzles leads you to find an invitation from Chesty. You find the house with the 'by invite only' sign, and go inside. Immediately, there's a long table with long-dead skeletons sitting in the seats, and coat racks with similar skeletons. There's a note from Chesty saying how happy he was to spend time with his super best friends, and something about a mirror...enter the floating mirror upstairs, and you find a fog enshrouded area with a bottle of red dye...''underneath a suspended skeleton, contorted by almost ''Franchise/{{Hellraiser}}''-like chains that extend into the fog''.

*** The worst part about the Shadow Judges is that apart from Reavers' backstory with them, you know absolutly NOTHING about them, at no point in the series is any reference to what they are, or what they want beyond the sacrifices.

** The worst part is how... quiet it is when there are no hostiles around. It's a pleasant summer day, not unlike Oakvale. [[NothingIsScarier There is no clue of what happened here, where did everyone go, where did the Undead come from]]...

Not to mention the torture the Hero himself has to go through when he [[spoiler:is imprisoned in Bargate Prison]].

** If you check your mini-map in the menu while passing through the Underground Chamber, you can see a red dot (red dots indicate enemies) in the middle of the pool, strongly implying the Kraken's down there ''the entire time'' as you make your way into Bargate Prison. Cue ParanoiaFuel vibes.
