* The intro in the second game is [[TropeNamer nightmare fuel]]. The first half is funny, but then it switches to the vault door opening, and you seeing what looks like a helicopter and a few soldiers with machine guns. They all are silent, and the camera cuts to the silhouette of a family waving through the door. All of a sudden, the machine guns fire, and then the screen cuts to black with a scream echoing in the distance.
* In Fallout 1 and 2, the talking heads for certain characters tend to be [[TropeNamer uncanny valley]] material due to their rigid animations, and are often shocker material if you first play the game. Hell, even the first cutscene can be startling at first.

** Frank Horrigan: [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] [[XMeetsY meets]] [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Incredible Hulk]] with the mind of an {{Eagleland}} psycho. Mutated at Mariposa with help from Enclave scientists, Frank had become an "ultra super mutant in power armor"; a "genetically engineered total homicidal maniac cyborg bodyguard". Bound to his suit, he can take anything you can dish at him and throw it right back at you. [[ButThouMust You have to kill him.]]

** [[BigBad The]] [[NuclearNasty Master]] [[EldritchAbomination himself]] [[spoiler:([[WasOnceAMan Richard Grey]])]], a Vault City exile who goes into hiding and accidentally falls into a vat of FEV serum, and undergoes a hideous transformation into a biomass that looks like a cross between a Centaur (see the ''Fallout 3'' Nightmare Fuel page, not the one seen in the first two) and a Vault Terminal, whose only wish is [[spoiler:to make the world "peaceful" by [[AssimilationPlot turning every man, woman, and child into a Super Mutant]]. The worst part may be that he believes he's ''right'', unless you are charismatic enough to HeelFaceTurn him.]]

* Remember those iguana treats, the ones that always provided you with a little extra health? And then going in to see good ol' doctor Morbid, and accidentally going into his basement to discover ''[[ShoutOut iguana bits]] are [[SoylentGreen people]]!?''

** Not to mention various corporations and companies who put profit and lucrative government deals over pretty much everything and also engaged in ethically dubious actions (and that's putting it VERY lightly). In a way the Great War can be seen as a macabre form of mercy kill executed on an entire crapsack world.

** On the opposite side, imagine how apathetic or fanatical the general populace would have to be for that kind of thing being shown on broadcast television and not lead to a public outcry.

Or possibly too preoccupied with their own neighbourhood going to hell to give much thought to what's happening on the other side of the border.

** You can find logs where he describes the progression of his own mutating body, first with horror and gradually the tone turns into eerie calmness. Early on he describes how a rat came near him, upon which a tendril shot out of his body and grabbed it. It didn't eat the rat, but assimilated it into its own biomass.
