* The scene where the team 'escapes' from the cell block is still terrifying. You fall asleep in your cell, only to wake up later and find the cell door mysteriously open. You look outside and find the guard has been horribly murdered. You get your friends out of their cells and you see that ''everyone'' on that floor is dead. And the pod holding Jenova has been burst open, leaving a huge bloody trail up the elevator. You follow it, trailing this massive blood smear up multiple levels past scores of dead employees while the creepiest music ''ever'' plays. Not to mention that there is no victory theme, when you win a battle..... All that's there is that frigging creepy music. And it ends with the Big Bad up until this point slumped over, dead, a sword in his back. Then you get introduced to the REAL Big Bad. The fact that you don't actually see Sephiroth yet & are just working off of this, coupled with Cloud's obvious mix of fear, hatred, & reverence further increases his creepiness.

* The nightmare begins with the line "I'm going to see my mother." This seemingly innocuous line, combined with Sephiroth's now apparent insanity and "Those Chosen by the Planet" kicking in at full force lets you know without a doubt that [[FromBadToWorse something terrible is about to happen]]. For the rest of the game you'll be one step behind Sephiroth, chasing a trail of blood, fear and horribly mutilated corpses.

** Also from Cosmo Canyon, Bugenhagen says that the Planet's death is not far away. Horrified, Cloud asks how he knows this. He says "I hear the cries of the Planet," and we are treated to a creepy, siren like sound, and the ''actual screams of pain from the Planet''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaAjyZMfQe8&t=189s See the scene here, at 1:50]].

** Our introduction to the secondary antagonist, Rufus Shinra, follows immediately afterwards. The sinister Shinra theme music is playing at the time, and if you speak to your allies, they build him up in a way that is just chilling. Tifa says, "I wonder what kind of a person he is." Aerith says, "I've heard no one's ever seen him bleed or cry." Barret says, "I heard that he'd been assigned somewhere else for a long time". And Red XIII simply says, "I only know his name." And then when you run outside to meet him in person, his utter coldness towards your interferance and his own father's death, plus his speech on how he intends to rule the world through fear, firmly establishes him as a warped person who's utterly detached from humanity.

** Hell, ''Nibelheim''. There's something unsettling about the place to begin with, mainly because the haunting "Anxious Heart" music is it's BGM, but there are several factors that make it a rather nightmarish place. The MindScrew that occurs if Cloud visits his mother in the flashback, Mt. Nibel and its' interiors, the Nibel reactor, the Shinra mansion, the entire incident with Sephiroth, and the mansion basement where Hojo did all his horrible experiments AND locked Vincent away. But worst of all is when you revisit the town. It's been rebuilt from the ground up exactly as it was five years ago, with all the townspeople acting like nothing ever happened to it, so maybe Cloud was misremembering things the whole time. There's also people in black cloaks hanging around all over town, moaning about "the great Sephiroth" and "the Reunion". A report letter to Hojo found at Tifa's house is the only thing that explains what's going on here. The townsfolk are Shinra staff members assigned to act like civilians and keep what happened in Nibelheim five years ago a secret, and the cloaked "Sephiroth Clones" are the surviving townsfolk whom Hojo experimented on in order to prove his theories on the JENOVA Reunion. In the attic of one house, there are even two ''children'' who have been turned into these things! It's really hard to sleep after finding all this out.

** Even the common Mooks you encounter at this part are rather grotesque (such as [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/File:Brain_Pod_FF7.png Braid Pod]], [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/File:Vargid_Police_FF7.png Vargid Police]] and the [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/File:Zenene_FF7.png Zenene]].) Fighting these critters alongside the ominous background music was freakish enough for younger players.

** After going with Vincent to the mountain cave where Lucrecia is hiding to hear her story out, come back and visit it again. Nothing happens, not even background music; it's one of the few places in the game to have ''[[NothingIsScarier complete silence]]''. On top of that, the area is labeled as "???". Slightly mitigated if you meet the requirements to unlock Vincent's Limit Break manual and [[InfinityPlusOneSword Death Penalty]] weapon, in which case you'll find them here.

** Even worse: the name of that solemn, haunting music playing in this dead city? 'You Can Hear The Cry of The Planet.' Yes, yes we can...
