* The fog seen early on in the Mist Continent is simply known as Mist. You're only told that Mist makes the air stale and somewhat difficult to breathe while it also makes the monsters more frenzied and dangerous. Despite the setbacks from Mist, Alexandria and Lindblum are able to create airships that run on Mist. The origins of Mist gets question when the party discovers a factory beneath the village of Dali that is producing black mages with Mist. Later on, you find that the source of the Mist comes from the Iifa Tree, whose purpose isn't known at the time other than a creature at the bottom is harvesting the souls of the dead. Beating it makes the Mist disappear from the world. By the time the party reaches Terra and confront Garland, they discover what Mist really was; [[spoiler: souls of the dead that should have returned to the planet's crystal were instead forcibly expelled into the atmosphere. All the black mages you slain were made up of dead souls and air travel were using the same souls as fuel. Not only that, Garland had created the Iifa Tree to block the souls from the planet's crystal so that they could linger and fester in the world, creating monsters and conflict/war between nations for many generations. Why did Garland do all this? To weaken the planet so that his planet could merge and take over. Because Gaia and Terra are connected, when Kuja goes on a rampage and destroys Terra, all of Terra's souls get expelled onto Gaia and covers ''the entire world in Mist''. People of the Mist Continent are used to Mist to begin with, but imagine the people on the other continents seeing an ominous fog covering their lands and have no idea on what it is.]]

* The whole forgotten continent is creepy, despite it being a pretty big continent, it is very desolate and almost devoid of any type of civilization. The only way to get there is by airship, and by the time you go there for the first time, you are thrown off at the northern part of the continent. Then you have to travel south, encountering extremely weird enemies, until you get to an ancient building named Oeilvert. Oeilvert is a weird place with an anti-magic barrier that seems to be some sort of museum for an unknown civilization. Oh, and the music is very gloomy.

** One throwaway line from Kuja makes it all worse: "They're not really twins, by the way." [[NothingIsScarier Then what ''are'' they?]]

You wouldn't think a giant rabbit-like dog would be creepy, but their demented, toothy grins and beady little green eyes turn them into something straight out the UncannyValley.

* The poor Black Mages. It's not just that they have such a tragically short lifespan - their deaths come with absolutely ''no warning''. They just 'stop'. The black mages are essentially a dying race; not only are they incapable of breeding, but the factories that produced them no longer function. Sooner or later, that village is going to be pretty much empty except for the Genomes.

** [[http://youtu.be/uzi8XKbKZDE Her theme]] alone is enough to imprint just what kind of a threat you are dealing with. Again if you're a fan of {{A Song Of Ice and Fire}} you may think of this song as depressing and unsettling as "The Rains of Castamere" minus the lyrics.

* Despite her {{Heel Face Turn}} later in Disc 2 and the fact she's undeniably and cool, [[ThatOneBoss Beatrix]] is without question the most terrifying character and has the most difficult boss fights in the early parts of the game for many players. Even before you fight her in Burmecia, Freya recounts a story her love Sir Fratley told her about Beatrix. Apparently she's the most feared knight in the realm that even he, a seasoned warrior is quite reluctant to fight and she's slaughtered more men in war than most can ever hope to achieve. She also led the assaults on Burmecia and Cleyra which left both utterly decimated and littered with corpses. She's so ruthless one can see her as this series's version of [[ASongOfIceAndFire Tywin Lannister]] . It's a pretty chilling backstory and then before you fight her she says something along the lines of [[BadAssBoast "I've once slaughtered a hundred knights single handedly; to me, you two are nothing more than insects]] . You may think she's just acting tough... and then she uses that dreaded move "Shock" which more than likely will one hit KO you...

** Actually, a very similar event (Earth and a Mars-sized planetesimal colliding) happened early in the Solar System's history. Earth survived, but shat a brick, which is currently known as the Moon.
