* [[EldritchAbomination The]] [[CompleteMonster Earthbound]] from ''Demon: The Fallen''. Unlike the PCs, these demons got out WAY before the [[WhamEpisode Avatar Storm,]] some almost millennia before. Unfortunately, they got stuck in ornate or symbolically important objects. How's that a bad thing? Well, they had no barrier to their own rage and bitterness like the demons released by the Avatar Storm and that eventually drove them to the deepest depths of madness and depravity. To make this worse, the first ones who got summoned from the Abyss? They were the big guns, the Five Lieutenants of Lucifer. All of them, down to the last one, either desire the [[OmnicidalManiac destruction of the world]] or [[EvilOverlord control of it.]] And every single one them is not only [[PhysicalGod SUPER powerful,]] far more powerful then the average PC demon, but their tendrils stretch across into every facet of society. Oh, and the Avatar Storm? ''That'' was what started waking them up again.

** 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.

* Ken Meyer's illustrations for the original ''Players Guide to the Sabbat.'' Blood parties. Chainsaw artists. Creepy chicks emerging from mirrors. Evil jesters with bloody-mouthed kiddies? almost every image in this book embodies this trope to maximum effect.

* ''Kindred of the East'' has the sourcebook ''The Thousand Hells'', which details some of the [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Yomi Kings']] abyssal realms. Some are weird, some are depressing, and some are NightmareFuel on super-steroids. One of the ''nicer'' hells is basically a cosmic death camp, where the souls of the damned labor naked in salt mines for millennia until their very personalities are ground down into dust and mined by their replacements. And suffer all the [[HumansAreBastards venality, sadism and abuse]] of the corrupt trusties chosen from among their own numbers in the meantime, as these feverishly flaunt their petty little powers, and both they and the even more degraded masses of prisoners they oppress desperately struggle to survive for another week, day or even minute.

* The first edition of ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' featured the Seventh Generation, a cult that [[AdultFear kidnaps children]] and uses them as human sacrifices to the Wyrm. To the fandom's delight, King Albrecht and his allies slaughtered the cultists in the revised edition.

* ''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''!
