** Pfft! That's nothing. In MQ, try the room in the Spirit Temple beyond the room where the rolling boulders were in the original. In the original it held a small key and a Like-Like. No worries. In Master Quest… TEN BIG SKULLTULAS[[note]](Well, six at first anyway)[[/note]] jump down to scare the ever-loving shit out of you![[note]]Though all it takes is one [[KillItWithFire Din's Fire]] [[{{Awesome/VideoGames}} to roast them all at once]]. It helps that you're probably at full power [[NightmareRetardant and have been one-shotting skullies like flies]] by now. The scare factor only comes from [[JumpScare how many there are and how suddenly they drop on you]].[[/note]]

** And around one minute and ten seconds into the track, ''demented laughter starts playing in the background.''... [[NightmareRetardant Though to some]] it sounds like [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Yoshi jumping]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDcQVzu_kc8 The original Fire Temple music.]] The Arabic chanting combined with the droning noise in the background gave off an eerie vibe ([[UnfortunateImplications which is why it was better for the Arabic chanting to be removed]]). Holy ''shit''.
* It doesn't help that even after you save the members of the House of Skulltula, their faces look like the Happy Mask Salesman's. (see below)

a very unsettling vibe.

*** That's all well and good but, who pierced his ear while he was sleeping? What else did they do?



* Speaking of early bosses which are terrifying, King Dodongo. He's not terrifying in his own right, he's actually pretty funny looking. However, the trick to beating him is to throw bombs down his throat. And his death scene is even worse. He rolls into a pit of lava, and you get to watch him writhe in pain for 15 seconds while his skin gets progressively more and more charred. Eventually his own body absorbs enough of the heat that the pit of lava solidifies, leaving his head and front legs sticking out of a patch of rock.
** Another thought: the only way to enter his room was to fall down a hole. There was no exit. How long had he been there, trapped in a small circular room with a slightly smaller pit of lava in the middle? Just him and the lava. Alone. Really, Link's murdering was a more of a MercyKill. Still horrific.

** It's actually even worse after you refill it, as well as Zora Fountain in the future. You're just swimming along leisurely, and then you get a face full of Octorok out of nowhere! These guys appear out of nowhere, like little aquatic Skulltulas.

Added DiffLines:

* Volvagia itself, being a fire-breathing dragon, is scary enough, but it's said that not only does Ganondorf plan to feed all the Gorons to it, but after that, it's going to turn all of Hyrule into a burning wasteland! Ganondorf effectively resurrected a WMD.

* The Bottom of the Well. The boss there is a huge lump of flesh with multiple skinny, pale arms sticking up. Go near the arms and they grab you, then the huge lump of flesh leaps out of the ground and moves towards you slowly, groaning all the way, while you flail about in the arm's grasp. Oh, and the walls and floor look like exposed innards complete with a few skeletons scattered about.

* The Final Battle. Just when you think Link and Zelda have won, what with Ganondorf getting a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from Link beforehand and having ''his entire castle come crashing down on him'', you hear a strange noise. Link goes to investigate only for a ring of fire to surround the area, thus blocking him off from Zelda. Then, Ganondorf's mangled, beaten body bursts out of the wreckage of his castle, with an expression of anger so chilling it could send fear into anyone's soul, his eyes lit with a bright, yellow glow, all while panting heavily. [[LetsGetDangerous Then he shows the Triforce of Power glowing on his clenched fist.]] Cue him roaring like a beast and transforming into a horrifying, boar-like abomination wreathed in shadows, complete with two absolutely massive blades which alone dwarf Link himself in size. And just before Link can attack, he ''[[DangerouslyGenreSavvy knocks the Master Sword right out of his hand]]'' and right beyond the ring of fire, [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic with a ominous droning theme playing]] during this final, seemingly hopeless battle between good and evil.

* That one Redead by the door as you escape Ganon's Castle. Dear God, the game designers were cruel by placing that enemy there, especially as it's the sole one in the game which isn't stunned with the Sun's Song (except in the [=3DS=] remake), and is placed just right so careless people will have to run straight past it. And it has the dubious honor of being the very last enemy you face before the final boss.

** Bongo Bongo's… vocal… noise… [[http://noproblo.dayjo.org/ZeldaSounds/OOT/OOT_BongoBongo_Murmur.wav is the single creepiest thing outside of the ReDeads.]] It almost sounds like "I want to die"…

He's easily the largest boss in the game if not the largest ''character'' in the entire '''franchise'''. He has one single, glowing red eye, the hands alone, which hope to crush Link or throw him around like a rag doll, already dwarf our hero and his dark shaded, scaly body blends perfectly within the shadows. Plus, you have to wonder how big the temple truly was if it could house a behemoth like that.

*** Real-world FridgeHorror: A saltire is ''not'' used for the same purpose as a cross. It's not used for crucifying people - it's used for doing something ''[[FlayedAlive much]]'' [[FlayedAlive worse]]. As if that isn't bad enough, the pool of bodily fluid underneath makes it abundantly clear that it's been ''used''. [[SarcasmMode Rated E for everyone.]]

**** Think about how much the Dead Hand looks like a skinned human corpse - and the presence of the saltire in the room directly above it. [[FridgeHorror Oh,]] ''[[NauseaFuel God]]''.

** It gets worse. If you visit the Great Fairy Fountain at night, you will listen to the battle music signaling something is close, keeping you on your toes. First-time players, at this point, will likely not have the Silver Gauntlets required to lift the rock that grants access to the Invisible Skulltula Cavern and thus will keep wondering where the foe is from. It is one of the most terrifying instances of the NothingIsScarier tropes.

** Lon Lon Ranch at night as young Link has a similar problem: Guays everywhere! The sounds of Gold Skulltulas only add to the creepiness.
** Kill enough Guays and a [[GiantMook giant one]] emerges.

creepiness. Even worse, you'd think the ranch would be safe 24/7 - you'd probably didn't expect the enemy encounter music to start playing.
** Kill enough Guays and a [[GiantMook giant one]] emerges.



** Actually, not even Lon Lon Ranch is free of enemies at night. Crow-like enemies called Guays will swoop down on Link when he is around the horse paddock. The enemy encounter becomes doubly creepy, considering that the ranch is entirely peaceful during daytime and you'd think the same would apply during the night.
