* Sunken Ghost Ship, specifically, the loooooong drop that occurs at the end of the level. What makes it freaky is that the background is pitch black, meaning you have no frame of reference aside from the coins that you drop past. Then suddenly, after the super long drop, you either land on a small platform with the goal orb, or you land in the nearby water and have to jump out before the mines above fall onto you. The fact that this level reuses the dissonant, creepy music from the various Ghost Houses doesn't help. Finally, when you complete the level and uncover Bowser's domain, there is [[NothingIsScarier no music]] when you regain control on the world map. The lack of music also happens on subsequent clears of the stage.

* The two Bowser Jr.s are so worried about losing each other that they plan to [[spoiler:'''[[SurpriseCreepy DESTROY THE PAPER MARIO WORLD]] [[OmnicidalManiac WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT.]]''']]

** Also in Hotel Mario, you must never hide in doors during boss battles while this does work for regular enemies in normal levels because they can't enter the door and hurt you but it doesn't work on Koopa Kids or Bowser himself because if you try to hide in doors or elevators either a Koopa kid or Bowser will enter the door you're in, come back out and burped out Mario's hat which means that MARIO GOT EATEN BY A KOOPA KID OR BOWSER HIMSELF! The silence before the lose a life music does not help the matter.

* The Thwomps from Bowser's Castle in ''MarioKart64''; it's that disturbing EvilLaugh. The green one in the cell is scarier for some reason. Luckily, they aren't scary in the Wii version's remake.

** Also in the Deep Dark Galaxy is a planet accessible by a cannon, which is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfUFJLWYxfM&hd=1#t=8m32s basically a tiny version of the first planet in Gateway Galaxy]]. It's kind of odd in the first place to come across something like this, but if you jump on a nearby screw and spin around, ''the planet will deflate like a giant beach ball''. It even ''rewards'' you for doing this with coins!

It's kind of odd in the first place to come across There's just something like this, but if creepy about traversing a dark, hostile galaxy and suddenly happening upon a replica of what is possibly the least dangerous and most friendly planet in the galaxy.
*** And the background ''even changes to match that of the original planet!!''

* There's also the Boo in the corridor opposite the door to the basement in Peach's Castle, who's suddenly just ''there'' once you gain enough stars, watching you every time you pass by. What's more, ''you can sometimes [[ParanoiaFuel hear its laugh from the room leading to Cool Cool Mountain]]''.

* To start, instead of the standard BottomlessPits, the game uses ''black holes'' at the centers of the various planetettes.
