* [[spoiler:Grima]] in VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening. No, the Dragon itself isn't... no. The fact that it kills (from within, painfully) and then takes over [[spoiler:you (or rather, [[AudienceSurrogate your avatar]]) is.]] ...Wait, never mind, the dragon is pretty freaky too.
** It doesn't help that it's a bit [[EldritchAbomination Lovecraftian]] in nature. With its bizarre appearance, a murderous cult that follows it, [[spoiler:it being responsible for the Risen]], and how [[BlueAndOrangeMorality there seems to be no discernible reason]] why it's doing its destructive acts.
* The monsters from Awakening. Not the ones that are just palette swaps of generic units, those...things, that sink into the ground. Their noticeably twitching head DOES NOT HELP!
* The Risen from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' make a helluva entrance in the game: appearing from a strange temporal portal, chasing the heroes down while the earth splits open, lava gushes out, and the surrounding forest catches fire. While fighting them in-game becomes fairly elementary, they're downright frightening in the [=FMVs=], especially when staring down Sumia and Lissa.
* The Death's Embrace DLC chapter has to be one of the darkest and most nightmarish chapters in Awakening: You come across a village that has been [[RapePillageAndBurn razed to the ground]], with everyone dead, then you hear that the perpetrator spared the strongest of the village's fighters, and go to investigate a nearby temple... where you find out that the perpetrator has taken said villagers and raised them as Risen whom he uses as loyal assassins, he has been going at it for a long time, and he has just finished his greatest work, which is a Risen Soldier with a freaky model not seen anywhere else. And on top of that, his temple has [[SpikesOfDoom spikes]] protuding from the floor, walls, and ceiling, with the intent on [[HPToOne softening you up]] as said perpetrator's minions go for the kill... so he can have you join their ranks. Worst of all, these Risen, unlike the maingame ones, [[AndIMustScream retain some of their humanity]], so you will get gems such as "Who am I?", "Which way is home?", and "Thank you..." when you kill them.

* [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/File:FE5_Hell.gif The graphics for the Hell spell]] in ''Thracia 776''. The image of a demonic-looking woman being embraced by skeletons in a hellish atmosphere is just a nightmarish sight to behold, especially in comparison to its ''Genealogy'' equivalent.

* From Rekka no Ken, [[spoiler:Zephiel's]] SlasherSmile....which is accompanied by a ''horrifying'' musical sting, and is also [[TheStinger the last shot in the game]]...
** What makes this worse? This is a reference to ''Sword of Seals/Binding Blade'', where Zephiel becomes the main antagonist. However, this is only hinted at in ''Blazing Sword'', meaning that it's likely that you will have ''absolutely no clue what the game is telling you here''. So after you beat the game and save the world, the last shot is of a man you [[ThatOneLevel went through hell to save]] turn evil... and you have no idea why.
** Actually the entirety of Zephiel's family in Rekka no Ken is pretty much this and {{Tearjerker}}. Being held up by insecurity with a manipulative mother (Queen Helene) and a jealous and abusive father (King Desmond), and the latter even attempting on one's life is seriously not fun on its own. It gets even worse when you consider the ramifications this causes 20 years later.

* The whole idea of the Berserk status. Someone hit by a spell from a Berserk staff will be sent on a blind, murderous rampage, attacking anything and everything that comes remotely near them. Let that sink in.

** The music "Puzzling Truth" in Path of Radiance sounds very disturbing and signals the part in the story that shit's gotten real. If there's any song you wouldn't want to hear in a dark alley walking home at night, it would probably be this one. Here's: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=be1POFOwa0U what it sounds like. Enjoy sleeping tonight.

* The ([[VisualEffectsOfAwesome admittedly badass]]) animation for [[spoiler:Nergal's attack, Ereshkigal]] -- it's a hellish vortex of dark magic, and the noise it makes... It doesn't help that you can see tortured souls actually converging inside it.
