* Fittingly, everything about the, and related to, the Nightmare in "X6". First, there's the Zero Nightmare, an insane, homicidal, discolored copy of Zero that seems to alternately claim to be, think he is, or be searching for, the real Zero, and often goes from carrying on a relatively normal conversation to making violent threats, or screaming in rage. Second, there's the Nightmare Virus, which takes the form of creepy, tentacled, DNA-strand shaped robots who can and do warp innocent Reploids into Maverick killing machines on-screen. Then there's the Nightmare ''Mother''. *Shudder* Just watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCG2kKFiH7A

Then Third is the Nightmare phenomenon itself, which seemingly has the power to warp reality, causing natural disasters, and creating pockets to alternate dimensions.

** If you failed to recover even one of Zero's body parts, the X-Hunters will raid the Maverick Hunters HQ to retrieve the rest of his body, and you'll be forced to fight him for real.
** The manga adaptation of this battle starts off with Zero killing Serges in cold blood, then methodically attempting to murder X, right down to bisecting his helmet in an attempt to decapitate him, before ramming his hand into a gaping hole in his armor in an attempt to finish him off with charged energy! X only even gets a chance to free him from the W chip controlling his actions when it delivers a painful and debilitating shock that paralyses him, and only survives the attacks because he was able to shed the tattered remains of his armor upgrade as they absorbed the potentially-lethal damage.
** What takes the matter of Zero further into nightmarish territory is the foreknowledge from ''both'' later in the X series and from the Classic series at the end of the ''Power Fighters'' arcade title, in conjunction with the potential boss fight. Serges's own death quote about Zero being "The last of the doctor's creations" heavily implies that some of the Mavericks did know about Zero's past. Zero's initial appearance was a little 'incomplete' at the start of the first game compared to Wily's schematics of him at the end of Power Fighters and the wireframe schematics of himself and X that Sigma used as the backdrop for his final battle in X5. All this points to Serges having enough of Wily's knowledge to complete Zero's design, improved buster, Z-saber, and all.



* Morph Moth's stage in ''X2'', which is a robot scrapyard. It features creepy dummy-looking robots hanging by wires by their necks, shooting them causes the body to fall off and the severed head to remain dangling and shoot you. It also features disheveled-looking robots built out of enemies from the previous game. The stage's mini-boss is fought in a room that has a floor composed more like a giant pit full of dismembered robot parts, which for a robot like Mega Man must be a bit like stepping into a pit full of bleeding, severed limbs.

The manga adaptation of the Morph Moth fight is extremely ghoulish, as Morph Moth uses a hallucinogenic agent to make X believe he was being haunted by the zombified remains of the vengeful Mavericks he'd defeated since the first game. How X dispatches him afterwards is fairly brutal, as he ignites the hallucinogenic agent with the Speed Burner and utterly incinerates Morph Moth.

* The "Warning" message that made its debut in ''X4''. You have the word written across the screen in red huge futuristic letters whenever you enter into a boss battle and that it flashes constantly from within sight with a scary alarm sound before disappearing. Most people who saw it were quite scared of it as they didn't expect for something like it to occur so suddenly and to add more horror to its nightmare potential, most of the boss battles from within ''X4'' and beyond had took place from within obscure and solitude places that were quite dark and unnerving (given the PlayStation's darker and sharper graphics). To add even more horror to the "Warning" signal's nightmare potential, think back to the first Final Weapon stage of ''X4'' and remember on how both X and Zero had surprisingly ran into both Double and Iris (who at the time were seen as cheerful characters from within a relatively dark game like ''X4'') from within their separate in-game scenarios. When the "Warning" signal had instantly flashed from within the room of where the sudden confrontations had took place from, you immediately knew and realized that [[BewareTheNiceOnes Double and Iris]] weren't there to help you out.

* Sigma in ''X4'', as well. In his first form, he's dress like the Grim Reaper and he has a giant, lethal scythe that looks capable of crushing anything when in strong hands. After this form is defeated, you'll face him the second time, only to find him with two separate forms that alternate with one another. One form is his head attached to an alien cannon. The other form, which takes the cake, is his big head, but disfigured with metallic tubes and wires protruding from him, which makes it look like life support. The music in both battles can intensify these moments, especially the 2nd one.

* Sigma's ominous Final Stage on Megaman X. It consists on a single narrow pit you must wall climb to reach Sigma, devoid of enemies apart from two holes in the walls of it that spawn tiny maggot-like robots. The eerily calm stage, with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bziJONWj8XM disturbing minimalist music]] as the background plays NothingIsScarier all too well.

** In X's side of the story, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h53_NGLyErE this cut-scene]] where Double [[TransformationSequence finally]] [[TheReveal reveals]] [[TheMole his]] [[BitchInSheepsClothing true]] [[AxCrazy nature]]. He [[BladeBelowTheShoulder single-handedly]] decapitates an entire room of Reploids in [[{{Gorn}} bloody-murder]]! Despite being an E-rated game.

** The Zero vs. Sigma flashback in ''X4''. Zero gets the upper hand on Sigma by tearing off his saber arm, then closes in with a Slasher Smile. The next time we see Sigma, he's been beaten to a pulp and half his face is missing along with the eye on that side. The other eye has a single straight wound across it, implying that Zero methodically gouged out one of Sigma's eyes, started on the other, then got bored. Zero then (tries to) finish Sigma by snapping his neck, which he really could have done at any other point before then, showing that he wanted Sigma to suffer and die slowly. Even Omega had the decency to stun-lock you to death in 10 seconds. Zero also spends the entire fight laughing or screaming. Awakened Zero and Omega would at least talk.

* The final stretch of ''X4'' after beating the Colonel. Everything's spiky and full of holes and that ominous vacuum like music. And Double and Iris in the stage.
