* The Gashadokuro in ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'', massive [[DemBones skeletons]] rising out of the ground, with a burning jewel in their ribcage protected by a pair of swords which they occasionally pull out to try to kill you with. According to the bestiary, they're made up of the bones of murder victims, or people who starved to death.
** TruthInTelevision: they really came from Japanese Folklore, murder victims' bones and all. Oh, and the original ones had the habit of biting their victim's head off. If your ears start ringing, a Gashadokuro is coming, the only warning you get.

* Yami. [[spoiler:[[FridgeHorror At first, he's seems to be simply a giant sphere with weird symbols, but it gets worse when you think about it.]] He manages to stand out like a sore thumb due to the fact that unlike everything else in the game, he looks cold and realistic rather than the bright and lush art you've gotten used to. He's portrayed as a force of pure malevolence rather than an actual "character". Furthermore, his back story is about next to nothing; all we really know is that he killed an entire race by himself, and he seems to be related to the Moon Tribe somehow. His final form is essentially a demonic claw, and his true form is that of a small fetus-like being. One terrible thing to notice is that he has blue FacialMarkings that are just like Amaterasu, suggesting that he is also related to the gods. His powers are essentially that of a LightningBruiser {{Magitek}} tank, which no other enemy is like aside from Lechku and Nechku. Worst of all, he seems to have the power to randomly destroy Amaterasu's powers, and if it weren't for the fact that Ammy had just entered her SuperForm, it's very likely Yami would have slaughtered her easily. All in all, the questions of "who is he?" "where did he come from?" and "what does he want?" is enough to scare anyone who was thought about him long enough. And as for bonus points, killing him doesn't even work, as his powers just split into separate beings.]] So yeah, he's quite the mysterious EldritchAbomination.

** The Spider Queen herself. The eyeless face, the backwards-looking hands, and her habit of suddenly rushing the screen at terrifying speed, as well as the screeches she makes when you Power Slash/use slips on her eyes.

The eyeless face, the backwards-looking hands, and her habit of suddenly rushing the screen at terrifying speed, as well as the screeches she makes when you Power Slash/use slips on her eyes. Oh and if you take too long, she gobbles you up, munches on you a little bit, and spits you out of her bud.



** When you first meet one of them, it has its back turned to you. Then, in a series of erratic jerking motions, it twists its head around 180 degrees to look right at you.

Added DiffLines:

** Even worse, though, is seeing the [[spoiler: purple wisp over the corpse. It may be just the stench of the corpse, but the corpse has no meat left on it. One could deduce that that's the real Rao's ''soul'' that wasn't able to pass on because the body wasn't properly buried.]] It's enough as a TearJerker and a spine-chiller. The utter lack of music in the area doesn't help, either.
** Before that, even, the [[spoiler: ghost of the real Rao guiding you to the secret passage is a bit off-putting, even before one realizes that the corpse in the passage is of the real Rao.]] It's just that finding ''that'' out makes it more off-putting in hindsight.
