* In Graveyard levels, it is possible to encounter a knight surrounded by candles and [[HeroicBSOD cowering in fear]] from the nearby zombies. Sometimes you'll find the knight already dead instead.

* Then the May 21th update came and changed many missions, as well as introducing one: [[spoiler: During this mission, the player finally meets Herex.]] This wouldn't be in the Nightmare Fuel tab, if it wasn't for the fact that Spark and Roar, a 7-3 rank mission, now has [[spoiler: four floors. The fourth has strange black pixelated particles that ressemble the Swarm and a note that says that the Iron Law is broken, the Crimson Order is false, cannot see the Truth, and cannot hear the Resonance that beats within Cradle, finishing with sentences that strongly imply that Herex has been fully corrupted by the Swarm.]]

*** However, the prize for the most Nightmare Fueling mission is the third and last one, [[spoiler: It Came From Below. A squad of the Recon Rangers has gone missing, and it's up to you to find them. The first floor is a Freeze-themed Candlestick Keep, which while quite unnerving, is otherwise normal. But then you reach the second floor... and while at first it looks like an average Cooling Chamber, near the exit, you find the Recon Rangers that had gone missing. The only one standing is shaking in fear and can only say ''Everyone's gone. It... it came from below.'' Then as you move forward, SWARM PARTICLES BEGIN APPEARING. And you have to press a Swarm Switch to advance, which causes Swarm enemies to start spawning. That's right; one of the knights biggest fear has come to pass: '''the Swarm has begun spreading outside of its seals in a big enough quantity that Swarm mooks have begun appearing outside of the deepest concentration'''. And the third floor is the Unknown Passage...]]

*** If you think that's all, though, think again. It gets worse. [[http://steamcommunity.com/games/spiralknights/announcements/detail/249165394786075377 MUCH WORSE.]] [[spoiler: '''''THE SWARM HAS CORRUPTED THE CORE!''''']]

** This was made worse with the 2015 February 11 patch, which introduced three new missions:
*** The first one, Breaking in the Recruits, is at first very calm and relaxing, especially after going through the Firestorm Citadel, as you are training recruit knights to be prepared for the puzzles the Clockworks regularily throws at you. Then, roughly [[spoiler: halfway into the mission, the mission has to be called off because ''Ghostmane Gremlins'' are sent by Herex to eliminate you. Reread: He sends his elite mooks against '''RECRUITS''' who most likely have no idea how to deal with them.]]
*** The second mission however, Crimson Chaos, is mostly tame. You have to investigate a Crimson Order base that has gone silent.

** Something even worse: The Apocrea have multiple eyes, multiple tentacles, and will always find a way to get you. Sound familiar?
--­>'''Echo Stone''': I dream... Within my dream, I saw it open the void, felt its endless hunger. You are safe here, Knight. Within this dream, its many eyes cannot see you nor can its many arms reach you. But this dream is fleeting. Use what is here to prepare for the battle to come. It knows of you now. It will find a way out and come for you.

* The Apocrea of the 2013 Dark Harvest. They're [[RealityWarper reality-warping]], [[AbstractEater soul-eating]] [[MadeOfEvil beings of darkness]] with terrifying [[TheGrimReaper Grim Reaper]]-esque bodies, who can summon arms out of the ground to root you in place and fire an {{eye beam|s}} attack that takes off your health in seconds - ''even if your shield is up'' (something other mobs can't do). They're encountered in graveyards that are far worse than the game's standard variety because of the fog combined with your radar going out, and when you're in said graveyards you'll occasionally get hit with an InterfaceScrew that comes without warning.

** That's not even the worst of it; after beating the Swarm-infested bosses, you are sent into the Unknown Passage: an entire section of the Clockworks that serves as a sort of breeding ground for the monsters; this is also where the Swarm reaches it's highest concentration. To make matters even worse, it's implied that King Tinkizar is the one that created the Swarm, as there are Gremlin corpses lying on the ground...

To make matters even worse, it's implied that King Tinkizar is the one that '''''CORE''''' of Cradle itself created the Swarm, as there are Gremlin corpses lying on due to this:
--> Echo Stone: As I dreamed, it consumed. It devoured
the ground...knowledge of time... Memories of the dead... The hearts of kings and the souls of their people... Good and evil... It consumed. It grew stronger, endlessly mirroring itself within the space of my dream. Endlessly mirroring... Expanding... Infinite. What it was before, it is no more. Neither beast nor god, it is a creation unlike all. It is... The Swarm.
