** Strangely, this item also breaks the game if it ever turns up. The world of Mage centres on the idea that whatever enough people believe actually is true. The ability to make people believe in magic again, would instantly solve all of the PCs problems.

* ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'' was ''made'' of this trope. The entire game was about psychological horror, screwed up internal conflict, evil shadowy voices constantly whispering your worst fears to you, an all-consuming eldritch power wanting to snack on your soul like a tic tac and make you into one of its soulless faceless soldiers, and, oh yeah, did we mention that you're ''dead when the game starts'', and that you're trapped in a dark, dreary, hopeless afterworld populated by other tortured souls? This is really just scratching the surface mind you. ''Wraith'' isn't just nightmare fuel, it's a frigging Nightmare Fuel perpetual motion machine that [[SerialEscalation runs off of nightmare fuel and then produces more nightmare fuel than was put it to get it started!]] ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' is the only White Wolf game that might have been more grim and depressing. ''Might''!

** In relation to that: Cathedral of Flesh. Which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. It's hard to tell what's more nausea-inducing, the fact that it's a freakin' flesh-church where the pieces are ''still alive'' or the fact that the Tzimisce who's talking about it is doing so with such [[CompleteMonster loving nostalgia]].

* ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' has Fomori, people infested by Banes (spirits corrupted by the Wyrm). BodyHorror aplenty, twisting the poor soul into something horrifying. Once infested, it is all but impossible to separate the Bane from the person's soul (especially without killing them), meaning that when they finally die they probably get to spend the rest of eternity in Malfeas, where they will be tormented and tortured for the rest of time. And the worst part about them? Just how easy it is to become one; if you're in the wrong place at the wrong time, you can have one shoved down your throat. If your soul suffered damage through traumatic events, a bane can sneak in those cracks and corrupt you from the inside out. And most horrifying of all, an entire umbrella organisation, Pentex, is dedicated to spreading these things through their subsidiaries. Get IVF through one? The baby is born a Fomori. Buy TabletopGames from [[TakeThatUs Black Dog]]? Have fun as they turn you into a monster. Want to stop for some fast food? Enjoy the unwanted passengers. And once they're in, you're doomed to a FateWorseThanDeath.
