* We all may think that the series itself is already pretty terrifying, but some of the fanart ''[[UpToEleven kicks it up even further!]]'' [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/305075/artist_request-baseball_bat-blood-blue_eyes-crazy_ Behold]], and let your bodies shiver and [[TearJerker your eyes water]].

* Any of the mad laughter in general. Although it can sometimes cross over to {{Narm}} territory

** It was handled fantastically in the manga. He's left alone, and there's a full-page spread of Keiichi just sitting there and ''OhCrap why is there a hand there?'' You flip the page, and you find the ''exact same shot'', only that a terrifying face has emerged to accompany the bloody hand, rising from under the bed. The final two pages are, to be blunt, EXTREMELY DISTURBING.

** In the anime this point is even more horrific if you re-watch the scene where Keichii is on the phone. The camera takes various points of view, first from the ceiling, then from behind the telephone. This is done to add a circling atmosphere of paranoia and disorientation. Then it shows from the ceiling, ''a crack in the door'', the floor, etc. When you find out that Rena was spying on the conversation, you realize the crack was '''her vantage point'''.

Added DiffLines:

** The word 'nagasu', apart from meaning 'to set adrift' also means 'to spill' or 'to shed' (e.g. blood). This is not conveyed in most translations.

** The PS2 version of the scene is much creepier. The scene plays out the same right up until the moment of silence. Then Shion starts laughing in a more psychotic style than the anime, then out of nowhere, the volume suddenly become ten times louder as the screen goes, black, is then filled up with text that is Shion's laughter, and then we get a shot of Shion in a completely dark room where all that can be seen is her face, which can be only describe as a [[SlasherSmile clown-esque deranged smile]], all while the laughter goes on.

* The lyrics for the PS2 port of the original novel contain what could be part of the creepiest nursery rhyme in human history:

Added DiffLines:

** The visual novel is also quite bad, but works more along the lines of NothingIsScarier with the punishments only given by names like the punichment of a casket, or the punishment of a duck that can't drink water, the text describing the punishments after Takano is caught is censored, more and more heavily towards the end, but it implies some nasty stuff.

** Especially so in the anime, as it is shown, in the VN it is only described.

** And not to mention the ending of Onisarashi hen reveals that [[spoiler:Natsumi was the one who killed her grandmother not her mother and that her mother's insanity was all a delusion caused Hinamizawa syndrome. She in fact was the one who chopped her grandmother up into pieces and the fact that she was doing this with a mixture of vomiting and a really creepy smile was just horrific.]]

* As mentioned above, the PC visual novels have no voice acting, instead using colour-coded lines to indicate who is talking. NightmareFuel comes in when they add a deep crimson red to indicate someone (in most cases the narrator at the moment) has gone off the deep end.
