* Despite her {{Heel Face Turn}} later in Disc 2 and the fact she's undeniably {{Bad Ass}} 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...

** Yoshitaka Amano's [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20081107203351/finalfantasy/images/c/ca/Necron-art.jpg vision of Necron]] is far more terrifying than the in-game model.

* People say that [=FF9=] is one of the [[LighterAndSofter cheerier games in the tone]] for the series, but, [[FridgeHorror when you think about it long enough]], you realize that's it's not true. Through the events of the game, you will witness the deaths of ''millions'' through war and genocide. The entire summoner race is immolated to death by a giant death ray. Both Burmecia and Cleyra are destroyed, nearly wiping out the rat people. Thousands die in the attacks on both Lindblum and Alexandria. Kuja kills all the sleeping Terrans by blasting everything to hell. And god knows how many died thinks to the introduction of the Mist. Garland planned to kill every living person on Gaia and he did ''a very goddamn good job''. In short, IX probably has the highest body count of any Final Fantasy game to date - and that's just the deaths we ''see''!

Added DiffLines:

* The music "Far away in the Twilight". It is fucking ''horrifying''. It plays whenever Brahne is involved in the conflict. The most notable instances of it playing are the revelation of the Black Mages in Dali, and the attack on Lindblum in Disc Two by the Alexandrian Army. To make matters worse, it ''never stops playing'' during the visit to the ruined Lindblum. The music comes to a chilling end with a ScareCord at the end, then loops again. If this music was used during the [[spoiler: Kuja absorbing the souls of everyone who died in the world]] then it would make that scene even worse.

* The theme that plays when you get to beat Trance Kuja and meet Necron is disturbing. That sad, mournful tune that played with all that moaning in the background? Creepy as all get-go.

* The entire mission to stop the mist at the Iifa Tree is greatly disturbing. First your traveling this maze of roots all whilst facing Zombies and sentient trees. Then you have to travel deep within the tree itself in which your riding on this leaf down a green, hellish spiral of which you get attacked by zombie dragons three times. Then you reach the bottom and you land on this harp-like structure with strings of some green liquid running down to a seemingly bottomless pool of green. Then [[spoiler: the boss and the maker of the mist Soul Cage, drops down, explains it's behind the mist and that the mist itself and the green fluid and surroundings of the tree itself is comprised of SOULS. You then have to battle it]]. What makes this worse is that even while you manage to stop the mist now [[spoiler: it'll be back soon enough]].

* Imagine if you walked in on the scene where [[spoiler: Garnet cuts her hair]] but couldn't hear what was going on for context. [[spoiler: The princess goes missing in the middle of an important meeting and no one except Zidane can find her. The two of them are talking and then suddenly she takes a knife and puts it to her neck. This girl has been put through such a TraumaCongaLine from losing her family, friends, and country, that it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to think that she was DrivenToSuicide at that moment. Thank god she was only giving herself an ImportantHaircut, instead.]]

* Depending on your personal philosophy Kuja can be seen as worse than almost every other Final Fantasy {{Big Bad}} because of one [[MoralEventHorizon extremely heinous act]] we learn he committed in Terra: [[spoiler: He has committed a massive {{Your Soul is Mine}} on thousands upon thousands of souls previously trapped in the Invincible. Those souls include Queen Brahne and possibly Garnet's real mother and father and it is implied he has ticked them into "becoming his energy" voluntarily. He destroyed people's souls and got away with it!]]
