* Good lord, the story behind this game. Bowser invades the kingdom and kidnaps Peach. That's all you get from the game itself. [[AllThereInTheManual In the instructions book,]] however, it's revealed that Bowser laid waste to the Mushroom Kingdom and turned the Mushroom Retainers that weren't kidnapped alongside their ruler [[TakenForGranite into bricks.]] The same bricks that Mario smashes to bits. And the reason why he kidnapped Peach was that she's the only one that can break the curse! These poor Toads [[AndIMustScream are probably aware of their position]], and have likely [[YouBastard been condemned to death by Mario's hand]] if they hadn't been saved by Peach.
** Or, if Super Smash Bros. Brawl gives us any clue, they (or at least the bricks in World 1) are left to rot in their floating prisons long enough for the grasslands we see in the NES classic we know and love turn into a desolate wasteland, void of no other life but the Smashers kicking each other's teeth in. At this point, [[MercyKill them getting destroyed in the mayhem might not be a bad thing...]]

These poor Toads [[AndIMustScream are probably aware of their position]], and would have likely [[YouBastard been condemned to death by Mario's hand]] stayed like that forever if they hadn't been saved separated by Peach.

* WHen the dimensions start to merge, what is the first thing Koopa does when he arrives in New York City (specifically, Brooklyn)? He unintentionally de-evolves [[spoiler: Scapelli]] (due to Mario, his intended target, jumping sideways out of the way to avoid it) into a monkey! Granted, [[KickTheSonOfABitch the son of a gun had it coming]], but still, it is kind of scary to be de-evolved into a monkey.

* "King Scoopa Koopa": Luigi, Yoshi and the cavepeople turning into Chickadactyls was scary enough but the real nightmare fuel was when [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant King Koopa]] wanted to turn them into KFC-like food and ''eat them''! Neither Mario nor the princess ate the eggs, or otherwise [[TheBadGuyWins Koopa would have won!]] Koopa's line really seals the deal: "One more day and it will be too late. Your friends will go from the fried egg to the fryer! And the next stop is the frying pan!" If [[SpaceWhaleAesop this was meant to]] [[ScareEmStraight keep kids away from fast food,]] [[{{Anvilicious}} they did a good job of it!]]

* The Mad Piano in BigBoosHaunt, when invoked, it ''grows teeth and tries to eat you'' (as seen above). To make it worse, it sounds like someone angrily banging their fists on the piano keys. Much of Mario-related trauma has come from that enemy alone. And to add insult to injury, one of the red coins is located behind it.

* Mr. I. No matter where you go or how fast you run, he's always WATCHING YOU...until you make it dizzy.
* What happened when you ran into a door when you didn't have enough stars to open it. Bowser cruelly laughs at your misfortune.

* Bowser himself. It's just the way his model looks, always with that evil look on his face, and if anything, the polygon look just made him scarier.

* ''Super Mario Sunshine,'' an otherwise rather bright game, features a level where you have to go underwater (thus, making it a TimedMission), and clean the teeth of a giant eel; complete with poisonous bubbles and a whirlpool that threatens to suck you in. Doesn't help that this eel is both male and female, and has four eyes looking at you hungrily.

* [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Phantamanta Phantamanta]] is a pretty frightening boss, and [[ThatOneBoss a pain to beat as well.]] It's a borderline EldritchAbomination that can move over ANY surface like some kind of shadow and leaves a trail electric goo, and when you spray it, it splits up, spray them and they split up, spray THEM and they split up! Then, once you got it into its SIXTY-FOUR parts, they all [[TurnsRed turn red]] and ''charge at you like mad!''

* In ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'', Bowser falls into lava in the first world. Not much different from what happened at the end of every single castle in the original ''Super Mario Bros''... until the game proceeds to show him ''desperately flailing in the lava, yelling in agony, and emerging with all of his flesh melted off''. Totally unexpected and freaky as all get-out.

** This is actually a major plot point of the whole game, since it requires Bowser Jr. to take command of the entire Koopa Troop in place of Bowser's death.

* When the two dimensions start to merge, Koopa's twin towers -- one of which looks half-destroyed (actually, it's not finished construction yet, but the visual effect is the same), and the other of which has a glowing stylized "K" on the side that looks like, depending on how you see it, either an explosion or a gaping hole -- replace the World Trade Center towers. This scene can be nightmare fuel to especially survivors and family members of the victims of the September 11th 2001 Terrorist Attacks.
* WHen the dimensions start to merge, what is the first thing Koopa does when he arrives in New York City (specifically, Brooklyn)? He unintentionally de-evolves [[spoiler: Scapelli]] (due to Mario, his intended target, jumping sideways out of the way to avoid it) into a monkey!
