!!Jaws 2:
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lalalala.jpg]]
* The shark when its face is hideously scarred.
* [[spoiler:Marge's death.]] It's just so ''sudden''.
* One poster is basically an evening over open water...and a single fin is gliding through. Peaceful, [[NothingIsScarier but....]]
** The Tagline deserves a mention: ''Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water.''

!!Jaws 3D

* Just the thought of having a man eating shark at a local theme park is pretty unsettling.
* Fitzroyce being swallowed whole by the shark.
* The corpse of one of the victims drifting in one of the fish tanks.

!!Jaws: The Revenge

* Just forgive how Mitchell Anderson is [[SpecialEffectFailure embarrassingly obviously hiding his arm under his jacket]] and think about his character Sean Brody's situation.
** [[spoiler:Just on your boat, doing your job, when suddenly [[ThreateningShark some unknown menace]] emerges from the depths, latches onto you, and starts violently pulling your arm. For some reason, it's [[SpecialEffectFailure bloody even before it happens]] but who cares!? You manage to stay on the boat, but realize your flippin' arm is gone! [[AndIMustScream You try to scream for help]], but unfortunately your very far out and everyone is busy [[HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday Christmas caroling]] so no one can hear you. So the beast returns, and your efforts to keep yourself in the safety of your boat are futile as it effortlessly drags you into the water. Keep screaming all you want for the remainder of your time above water, because it proceeds to pull you down and finish you off.]]
* There's also the bit when ''Michael'' is chased by the shark. The worst fear of every scuba diver out there.

** The scene is made even more powerful by the soundtrack - or lack thereof. Consider this: all throughout the movie John Williams has been training you that Shark = Music and that No Music = No Shark. Every attack, we get Williams leaning hard on the string section and fake out moments like the boys with the cardboard fin are scoreless. So later in the movie, it's been a while without an attack, the audience has gotten relaxed, Brody is throwing out chum and suddenly BAM! SHARK! Our first good look at the beast, and there was no "okay, here comes the monster" music. It completely catches the audiance off guard, creating one of the most memorable moments in the movie, and it's all because the soundtrack suckerpunched you.

* Just think about the fact that this film alone is responsible for making people afraid of going into the sea because of what could be lurking below the surface. It's considered one of the scariest horror films ever for a good reason.

* When the dog disappears, with the very strong implication that he's become shark food. It can be very unpleasant for people who really like dogs. It doesn't help that right after the above happens, there's the attack on Alex Kitner.
** There's perhaps the most distressing thing about the implied death of the dog. ''NO-ONE NOTICED''. As horrible a thought as it might sound (especially to pet lovers), if someone had actually sighted that the dog had been taken by the shark, it would have given them some warning. And young Alex might have been spared his fate as a result. But no. A silent predator sneaks in, takes someone's cherished pet, and then takes someone's son.

*** Director Steven Spielberg added that scene during post production because he wanted to add "one last scream" into the film. [[NightmareFuel And it was definitely effective]]!

* Quint describing the ''Indianapolis'' disaster. ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Indianapolis_%28CA-35%29#Loss Because that really happened]]''. Sure, some of the finer details are wrong, but potentially hundreds of people ''really were'' EatenAlive. One of the most chilling scenes and it doesn't involve any action at all.
** Also, after he told his bonechilling story, you can hear a haunting sound. Quint explains it's just a whale, but it's still creepy.

** [[spoiler: Quint's]] death is also quite graphic. We see the shark's teeth biting right his stomach and all the blood comes out painting the water red. In the last moment you can also hear his spine breaking. Also, [[spoiler: Quint's]] screams of agony don't help.

* Everything after [[spoiler:Quint's]] death, imagine, being alone on the mast of a sinking boat, and knowing the only thing saving you from being devoured alive is a one in a million shot. And unlike the previous attacks where the shark leaves you alone for awhile, the shark, out of rams through the side of the sinking boat at Brody very unexpectedly.
** When the shark charges right towards Brody, we can see bits of flesh around it's teeth, which is most likely what is left of [[spoiler:Quint]].

A movie about a shark stalking its prey, devouring them piece by piece, with nary a noise nor expression. You bet your ass it has its scary moments. By the way, yes, the shark head really was that big.
