* The Tourist Trap quest, in which humans are captured by bandits and are being forced to work in a mine. Fortunately, you manage to rescue Ana from this fate.



*** At the very end of the series, you find out what was talking to you. It was [[spoiler:an aspect of a goddess known for being ''benevolent''.]]

* In the followup quest, Lord Of Vampyrium, Lord Drakan decides to stop sitting on his throne and hunt down the Myreque himself. And it does NOT bode well for them, with him bringing his Venators to join the hunt, one of which kills Kael and drinks his blood.

* "Nomad's Elegy" concludes with a boss fight which pits the PlayerCharacter, aided by Death, Icthlarin and Xenia, against Nomad and a godly construct that Nomad named "Gielinor": a horrifically twisted parody of Guthix's appearance, [[HumanResources built by innumerable souls in the form of human bodies]] that appear to be [[AndIMustScream half-assimilated and in a constant state of agony]]. You do get to destroy it, thankfully, and Death and Icthlarin release many of the trapped souls to their rightful place in the afterlife, but for the entirety of its brief existence it puts [[{{Franchise/Halo}} the Gravemind]] to shame.

* ''Kindred Spirits'' is filled with moments that would be horrific to experience in real life, [[spoiler:Dharok getting attacked my 'crusaders' of Saradomin, and he kills them all because he was a bully in life, but to end it he needs to let them kill him; Ahrim wandering a maze and having to decide whether he gets hurt or someone else instead, all because he murdered someone who rebuffed his advances in favor of his brother Guthan; Verac having a key stuck in his abdomen, which you need to wrench out to free him, all representing him being torn between two gods; and Guthan is revealed to have betrayed them all by signing them up to Sliske's plan after murdering another soldier, with him being stuck in a ball which could crush either his brothers or the soldier.]] Sliske reveals that the entire quest was a trap for the World Guardian, so he can finally turn him into a wight. He tries to steal their soul, being able to look through their memories and point out their dark secrets. Then it ramps up when Sliske discovers [[spoiler:the World Guardian knows of his true plans.]] He [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness completely loses his composure]], [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beats them to within an inch of their life with his bare hands]] and would have killed them immediately had it not been for the protection of [[spoiler:the brothers]].

** After the quest, he turns up in the Empyrean Citadel, and seems to be back to his usual self...except for his final line.
--> '''Sliske:''' Hahaha! Your face! I'm not trying to 'collect' you anymore, silly. You're already mine! My gift allows you to see into the Shadow Realm without need of that scrawny ring. [[OhCrap Next time, I want you to see me coming...]]

** Speaking of Sliske, he's normally very goofy and lighthearted, even when he's talking about serious things. Then, in ''Fate of the Gods'', after he is excommunicated by Zaros, he drops his usual demeanor to deliver a chilling threat to the player character.
--> '''Sliske:''' 'As you command... my lord.' But don't think this is over, World Guardian. I'm just getting started with you. Where I'm concerned, Zaros's protection of you no longer applies.
--> '''Player:''' Protection? What protection?
--> '''Sliske:''' Between you and me, all bets are off. Be seeing you.

* The diary of the current owner of the lighthouse in Fremennik Region. It mentions noises from beneath the lighthouse, hearing the waterlogged voice of the previous owner in his dreams, and then he goes to investigate the basement, which is the source of the sounds. There's a reason why the journal ends there. Sweet dreams, dear reader.
** [[spoiler:On the upside, you do end up successfully rescuing the person in question, who is simply trapped.]]

** Tolna was trapped underground, [[GoMadFromTheIsolation isolated and going insane]], for twenty years. Until he morphed into that ... [[HumanoidAbomination thing]], and transformed the entire cave system into a warped manifestation of his madness. ''He was a child.''

* The faces of Mother Mallum and Lord Drakan the Vampyre. Apparently, they're [[NightmareFace too hideous for portrait boxes]], so they've [[NothingIsScarier never been directly seen]] ... and hopefully they won't.
** Mother Mallum isn't. Lord Drakan, unfortunately, is. Large amounts of carnage ensue, and nobody is safe.

* Most of the middle of The Branches of Darkmeyer is this, along with large doses of TearJerker. To elaborate, you'll essentially be forced to do [[MoralEventHorizon Zamorak's bidding]] as you:
** Mock and torture an imprisoned widow, whom you can free after the quest. Did we forget to mention ''you'' killed her husband?
*** It's made even worse if you torture her too much, because after the quest, you can't free her. She just says that it'll all be over soon.

* In Dimension of Disaster, an alternate universe where [[TheBadGuyWins Zemouregal took over Varrock]] and turned everyone into zombies, because you were never born and thus did not thwart his plans. Oh, you also learn that every other city and region you saved was taken over by other villains, turning it into a [[CrapsackWorld crapsack world]]. In the end, you do help save city, [[PyrrhicVictory but without Zemouregal's magic to sustain them]], the zombies will all crumble to dust.

** The CosmicHorrorStory has been [[DefiedTrope defied]] for once, as the [[EnemyMine combined effort]] of the Godless, Zamorakian, Armadylian and Saradominist factions stopped Tuska in her tracks and got her KilledOffForReal. Though, since the Godless basically swept the event, it gave rise to yet more NightmareFuel as it was [[ThatOneBoss Vorago]] who ultimately slew Tuska and [[TookALevelInBadass gained at least some of her godly power]] in the process. If anything, the game's constant SerialEscalation in [[GoddamnedBoss boss fights]] is about to get even worse ...
