** This troper always thought it looked like a strainer. Nightmare fuel or retardant, depending on your interpretation.

Added DiffLines:

** "It's not right...not right...not right..."


Added DiffLines:

** With [[spoiler: praying]] being your only hope, one could mistake Giygas as a demon, what with the red coloration and the sheer ''horror'' that is his appearance.

* While not nearly as famous as the one in the sequel, the final battle against Giygas is actually pretty terrifying when placed into an appropriate context. If you were playing as a child in 1989, this was probably the very first video game battle you'd experience where everything you thought you knew about playing games [[OutsideTheBoxTactic doesn't help you]]. You can try and try with all your might, using all the amazing powers you'd earned during your adventure, but no matter how hard you try, he will just continue mocking your ineptitude, telling you your only options are to give up or die. Coupled with the white-on-black contrast of his sprite, the ear-bleeding eeriness of his [[DroneOfDread "music"]], and the fact that there's a good chance you're in a dark room, for the NES, that was some pretty unnerving stuff.

stuff. And as seen below, it gets FromBadToWorse for both the player [[SanitySlippage and]] [[WasOnceAMan Giygas]].

** In the last section of the Restroom Level, knock on the right-most men's room door and you'll hear an all-too-familiar Ba-DEET! noise. Knocking on it again will result in something banging the door from the inside. Go inside the room and you'll see the Chimera, inches away from you, [[NightmareRetardant on a toilet.]]

** During the trip, the party can enter an incredibly inviting looking hot spring... but when they enter it, Boney, the only one who ''didn't'' eat the mushrooms, will stand outside of the spring and whimper. Come back when the trip's over, and the reason Boney refused to enter is because it was a... toxic waste dump.
** The script for this was rewritten, because the original terrified its creator... So if you thought this was horrifying, [[FridgeHorror imagine what the original script could have been!]]

** The Cave of the Past in and of itself is pretty much NothingIsScarier. The area itself is not very visually interesting, the music is extremely minimal, and (besides the enemies, all of which are represented by nothing but diamond-shaped objects instead of the normal, unique enemy sprites you've seen throughout most of the game) there are no NPCs and only one recharge station, way at the beginning of the area.

** And how do Ness and his friends get there? In the words of Dr. Andonuts himself, life is demolished in the process of time travelling, which is the reason why he transfers their "brain programs" to robotic bodies so they can travel, while their bodies stay behind, without any warrant that their spitirs would come back to their bodies; this thought can be very terryfing beacuse this means Ness and company are doing the greatest sacrifice by renouncing to their human bodies, and go around in robotic bodies unable to feel pain or anything, and even if they manage to win and come back to the present, they still might be stuck in their robotic bodies forever. [[spoiler:Fortunately it doesn't happen. Upon Giygas' defeat, their spirits go back to their human bodies.]]
