** And in some stories, when the faeries are being benevolent and trying to right what they see as a wrong, they go about in truly disturbing and horrifying ways. For example, a young man who's father is very rich, lives a carefree and playboy lifestyle without his dad's knowledge. However, when he gets a girl pregnant and his dad finds out, the father confronts him one night tells him that he must marry the girl or be disinherited. The son has until morning to give him an answer, and goes for a walk to think it over. However, as he is walking, he starts to here voices, laughing and giggling, and the sound of something rather large being dragged across the ground. The son starts to walk faster, trying to get away, but the noises just keep getting closer and closer, until eventually, the dragging sound stops....and a human corpse is thrown at his feet. The faeries tell him that he buries the corpse, or when morning comes, they will take him away. The son tries to get away, but is tripped up and the corpse lungs onto his back, its arms wrapping around his neck and locking together. And he can't get it off. So, he runs to the nearest cemetery, finds a shovel, starts digging...but when he slices into the flesh of another corpse, ''it gets up and tell him he cannot bury the corpse here.'' He runs to another graveyard, tries again, and the exact same thing happens. Every cemetery he goes to and tries to bury the corpse in, another one already buried there gets up and says he can't. Eventually, just as he can see the first signs of the sun rising, he finds a cemetery with an open grave, with a shovel and a pile of dirt next to it. The corpse slides off him into the grave, and quickly buries it, barely finishing before the morning starts. He goes back home and agrees to marry the girl, but if that is how the faeries act benevolently, one shudders to imagine what they do if they become malevolent....

** TheFairFolk as a whole can be quite horrifying. Some of the stories which deal with them can be terrifying in one way or another. In one story, two friends are walking back to the village, when they hear the most beautiful music. One elects to see what it is, while the other goes back to the village to see his fiancee. His friend ends up going missing for over seven months, and he himself is suspected of murder. His fiancee implores help from one of the other villagers who has experience with fairies, and they go back to the spot he was last seen. They eventually find him dancing in a circle with the faeries themselves, laughing and having the time of his life, but when he gets pulled out, the faeries all vanish. When the man is told he has been gone for over seven months, he refuses to believe it, claiming that it couldn't have been more than five minutes. The story is rather chilling the longer you think about it.

* Most people today think of [[TheFairFolk faeries]] as dainty little pixies who fly around granting wishes. However, the people of the Middle Ages feared the wrath of the Fair Folk, and few were more vile than the Nuckelavee. A formless specter living off the coast of Orkney, this foul faerie would rise from the depths of the ocean and take the form of a massive, skinless, black-blooded, yellow-veined, fin-footed, man-eating horse with its "rider" fused to its back from his waist down. The horse head had a single blazing red eye and a gaping mouth full of vicious teeth, while the "rider" had an oversized head that rolled about on its undersized neck, and long, muscular arms that ended with razor sharp claws. This monster was an OmnicidalManiac of the highest order, rising from the sea to deliver a plague called the Mortasheen (yes, that's where Bogleech got the name for ''{{Mortasheen}}'' from) that would kill livestock and crops, and it reserved a special hatred for any unfortunate humans it came across. Its one consistent weakness was fresh water, [[CannotCrossRunningWater which it could not cross]] (although some versions mention an aversion to burning seaweed).

* The {{Wendigo}} of Algonquin folklore is what happens to people who engage in cannibalism. After they've eaten another human, they turn into a tall, gaunt corpse-like being with sharp fangs that have shredded the former human's lips to nothing, bloody stumps where its feet would be (possibly due to frostbite), and transparent skin through which you can see its icy blood and heart of ice. It can turn invisible and ride on the wind to pursue prey, and it is ALWAYS hungry...

Descriptions do vary somewhat between cultures -- sometimes it will be many times larger than a human and grow with every victim it eats; sometimes it will a hideously thin, fleshless being, twisted and hunched and with a deer's skull where its head should be. It can turn invisible and ride on the wind to pursue prey, and it is ALWAYS hungry...

* Fearsome Critters, despite their name, tend to be mildly silly if not absolutely {{Adorkable}} at best and somewhat spooky at worst. The same cannot be said about the Hidebehind. A creature that hunts and eats humans who get lost in the woods. It gets its name because it ''hides behind'' its prey...and can keep hiding until the time is right. It can hide behind its prey and no matter how fast its prey turns around, ''it is faster'' and can [[ParanoiaFuel keep hiding behind their prey until the right moment]]. And at that moment, it kills and eats them.
* The concept of the [[ChineseVampire Jiang Shi]] may seem silly-what's so dangerous about Qing Dynasty-era officials who are also bouncing vampires? Well, first of all, they're nearly invincible. Bullets? Nope. Buckshot? Nah. Explosives? Knocks them over, but soon they'll be up again. Second, they are deadly enough to wipe out whole villages. Third, ''they can kill you by breathing.'' Fourth, they don't just suck your blood, they rip your throats out. Fifth, with one well-timed bounce aimed at you, they can knock you over and turn you into them. And last of all, as long as you're breathing-''they will find you.''

** Another vaguely equestrian fairy is the Irish Dullahan, a man riding a black horse and [[HeadlessHorseman carrying his own head around.]] That head has a literal [[GlasgowGrin ear-to-ear grin]] and is very firmly rotting, [[{{Squick}} often described as looking like moldy cheese.]] The dullahan has a basin of blood that he ''throws at people'' as an omen that they're going to die. And if he comes through town, [[ImplacableMan no doors or gates can stop him.]] The only thing that he hates [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine is gold.]]

** Burrunjor. Descriptions of it say it is a large scaly predator that stands on two legs with two tiny arms. It is 25 feet in length, and eats large animal, like cattle. Cast of its footprints show it has three toes. Yeah, it's a motherfucking Tyrannosaurus Rex. ''AND OF COURSE IT'S FROM AUSTRALIA!''
