* [[FillerArc Kai's first arc]]. Note this is all in [[spoiler:[[TrapMaster Sa]][[GenkiGirl to]][[BreakTheCutie ko]]'s]] perspective. [[spoiler:Imagine being a child of 9, living on her own with her 9-year old best friend, after both of your parents were killed. You're shunned by almost the entire village (save for everyone at school) because of a mistake your now dead parents made. Your best friend is acting strangely and differently, and you wake up at night because of her talking to "herself" about how she's going to be KILLED and nothing can be done. One day, you notice a strange man is stalking you and your best friend, but no matter who you tell, nobody believes you, not even your friends! You decide to tell the local doctor, a good friend and manager of your baseball team, but upon arriving, find out he apparently committed suicide. So, to catch the strange man in the act, you set up traps so you'll be alerted if someone comes in the vicinity. Your trap goes off that very night. You wake your friend and let her know, and she proceeds to hide you in the closet while allowing the strange MEN (yup, there's more of them) to kidnap her. After the noise dies down, you sneak out and go to the temple nearby that belongs to the family of your best friend. What do you find? Her DEAD, brutally murdered, her killers nearby and now chasing after you. You're barely saved from them as you fall off a bridge escaping them, and you wake up soon after on the shore. (pretty much a role recall of Tatarigoroshi with her being in Keiichi's perspective) So, you go to town, only to see it's swarmed with police officials making a huge deal about something around your school. Upon looking through the window, you see the open-eyed, drooling CORPSES of your teachers, schoolmates and friends, making you the ONLY survivor of the entire TOWN. The resulting shock makes you a vegetable, barely conscious. A police officer at your bedside tells you that your friend, Rena, is missing, but left behind her bloodied hat as a possible sign. You awaken a while later with memory of this, and you realize exactly what the sign meant, so you call a nurse. Too bad that nurse is involved in the conspiracy! Guess what? You'll be dead by morning, and nobody will even be able to prove you were murdered.]] [[FridgeHorror Let all of that]] [[AdultFear register for a moment]].

* 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.

* The trailer for the VR game : It starts of rather sinister, [[NothingIsScarier in an empty and damaged corridor of what seems to be a school building at sunset]]. Sinister, but it's near the end that the Nightmare Fuel kicks in : The same corridor, except it's nighttime. The POV looks at the side then [[spoiler:[[JumpScare we hear the voice of a girl from the corridor, but she sounds like she's RIGHT NEXT TO US]]]] and as the camera turns back to the corridor, [[spoiler:[[JumpScare the screen suddenly turns to statics, likely because the girl attacked us]], before we could see who was the girl, who we only caught a glimpse of, not that it helps since all we see is a black silhouette in the darkness. However, the voice seems to belong to [[AnAxToGrind Rena]].]]

** When Keiichi, his parents, and the other kids sans Rika get to Okinomiya, everything is destroyed as if there was a huge outbreak like back in Hinamizawa. It was stated earlier that [[spoiler: pretty much every country has something close to the virus behind Hinamizawa Syndrome, but even though the UN swept it under the rug, Each country continued its research. Thanks to research that had been done, Japan had successfully made it into a biological weapon, only to have it accidentally leak out and infect some of the population in the country, mainly in Hinamizawa and neighboring towns. Their reaction? Something along the lines of "Oops. Well, let's cut them off and observe what happens."]]

* 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]].

** 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.
