* While the (presumably) [[DownerEnding final ending]] of the series is more of a TearJerker, it can swing back this way. Isaac's breath [[spoiler:speeding up and slowing down and slowly turning blue as he suffocates in the chest]] is already bad enough, it has a huge dose of AdultFear in that [[spoiler:Isaac believes himself to be a demon and committed suicide after his family broke up]]. A ''[[spoiler:young boy committing suicide]]'', no less. Perhaps the most haunting aspect is when the camera pans through a wall of photographs and drawings, which starts normal, until [[spoiler:Isaac begins to draw himself as a demon]] with his parents arguing in the background.

* While also housing the aformentioned boss, the final level, [[spoiler:The Void]] is truly, deeply unsettling thematically. While initially it might be an interesting effect seeing all of the rooms [[spoiler:keep spontaneously changing their appearances from floor to floor and occasionally even glitching to a different appearance mid-room]], think about what it means from Isaac's perspective. [[spoiler:This is his psyche breaking down into nothing as he dies. Where there was some coherence to his delusional journey before, it's all falling away, the rules of the world loosening as his sense of logic decays.]] It's hammered home especially hard if you happen to die anywhere in this zone, as his will reads "I was killed by this thing in some [[spoiler:''dying memory...'']]". Another part that makes this troubling is that, once the level is unlocked, you can gain access to it at total random when defeating any boss after Mom. While this can be seen as a nice (if ''[[SchmuckBait completely suicidal]]'') bonus, this gets even more horrifying connotations when you think on it. [[spoiler:Isaac has prematurely snapped and has began his rapid downward spiral.]] Incidentally, said entrance can open with absolutely no warning, which can throw you straight into the jaws of this level without meaning to if you're not careful. Finally, consider what the entrance to that level is -- instead of the Trapdoors, holes, or beams of light from other floors... [[spoiler:It's a portal. [[OhCrap The same kinds of portals that have been spewing out enemies earlier in the game.]] The whole time you've been playing and coming into contact with those portals, that's been Isaac teetering on the edges of his breakdown, fighting back and destroying this encroaching force of madness...which he will eventually succumb to.]]

** Thankfully his design becomes less terrifying and much, MUCH more rage-inducing once you get the chance to [[ThatOneBoss actually fight him.]]

* The ultimate boss from ''Afterbirth +'', [[spoiler: Delirium]]. It's almost certainly the hardest boss in the game, acting as a FinalExamBoss by [[spoiler: mimicking all the other bosses' forms and attacks]]. But it's made all the more unsettling because it constantly jutters around as though it were [[{{Undercrank}} undercranked]], and will [[spoiler: teleport and switch forms without warning]]. Add on an incredibly creepy theme, and the fact that [[spoiler: it's a manifestation of Isaac's own deteriorating mental state]], and you have the makings of a truly disturbing boss.

* The designs for bosses in Wrath of the Lamb are horrifying. The new bosses seem to be the old ones... After you killed them. Most of them look absolutely horrible, [[UrineTrouble Peep]] looks the worst by far. He seems to have collapsed on the inside and [[EyeScream is bleeding from his eyesockets.]] [[http://images.wikia.com/bindingofisaac/images/2/2c/564076255.jpg Here is the poster.]]
