** On that note, remember ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]''? How you got to be friends with most of the Kokiri? Well, one of them was chosen to be the Sage, and Molgera '''ate him alive!'''
*** It may soften it a tiny bit that you never met that particular one (unless the Fado you met decided to start looking like a boy instead of continuing to look like a girl for some reason), but still...

** Or perhaps not. [[spoiler: WordOfGod is that being TakenForGranite was really just for show - Ganondorf is dead, plain and simple...Not that that isn't better than the alternative, though]]

** Even approaching the thing is horrible. The atmosphere will notably change around the cyclone, which is clearly visible from, judging in-game distance, more than a mile away--to the standard overcast wind and sometimes rain. Everything about the situation blatantly screams "get the hell away". And if you ignore that feeling--even with the bow and arrow--you're in trouble. Unlike other whirlpools in the game, Cyclos sucks you '''directly into the center''' and spits you out. You have a matter of seconds before this happens. Good luck.

* When the King makes his wish on the Triforce and disrupts Ganondorf's century of planning, the King of Evil ''very calmly'' pulls out a pair of katanas...before lurching around to face the screen and flashing a huge SlasherSmile [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou at the player]]. He then proceeds to [[WouldHurtAChild attack both Zelda and Link as Hyrule drowns]]. It's abundantly clear that Ganondorf has literally nothing to lose at this point, and that he's dedicated the last few minutes of his life to trying to hack his enemies apart.

** Even worse in that there's a distinct possibility it could've been a child who wrote that message. As it's required for each of them to journey to visit Valoo in order to grow their wings, that makes them the most likely to be traversing Dragon Roost Cavern.

** And when you defeat the Helmaroc King and gain access to Ganondorf's chamber, you find the wall outside splattered with something that looks suspiciously like dried blood, with skulls and machetes strung up over the door. Considering this "rival gang" of Tetra's was probably ''the Gerudo'', it's not hard to imagine what Ganondorf might've done them once he made his return.


Added DiffLines:

* Your first sight of Greatfish Isle is pretty horrifying, especially as it's never made clear ''what'' Ganondorf did to it. All that's left is a few pieces of land jutting up from the water at extremely unnatural angles, debris scattered this way and that, and two wrecked canoes sitting on the shore - a far cry from the troubled, but thriving settlements on Dragon Roost and the Forest Haven. You don't even get a chance to discover who lived here before it was destroyed, as the implications are pretty heavy that there were ''no survivors.''

* The [=ReDeads=]. The scary part isn't that they're hard to fight; they're actually rather easy. It's that if you try to shoot them from afar or from behind, they'll look up and ''stare into your fucking soul with their empty eyes'' before turning back harmlessly to stare into the ground again. It's surprisingly horrifying, especially if you're standing less than two yards behind one of them.

Added DiffLines:

* Wizzrobes use the fine line between Nightmare Fuel and NightmareRetardant as a jump rope. On one hand, they have a rather goofy appearance, resembling wall-eyed toucans. On the other hand, they can teleport at the player when they least expect it, attack them, and teleport away before the player can kill them, leaving them to wonder where the hell they'll pop out of next. Then there's the fact that their teleporting animation consists of them spinning around slowly with a silly yet somewhat creepy sound. And later on in the game, they [[MookMaker start summoning enemies...]].
** And then there's the one on the Ghost Ship which can summon ReDeads. This is the only Wizzrobe in the whole game that can do this, but players that don't know this will spend the rest of the game [[ParanoiaFuel worrying about Wizzrobes popping out of nowhere to hurl ReDeads at them.]]

*** Wind Waker was this troper's first Zelda game, and when they encountered the Bokoblin standing guard at the foot of the cliff leading up to the Fairy Fountain, it scared them out of continuing the game for weeks. Not a good time for a jumpy seven-year old...

* The game opens with an ApocalypseHow of the confirmed continental, possibly planetary, scale due to the Flood. To top it off it's possible species extinction happened for several races who either don't appear at all or in very small numbers-- like the Gorons, Zora, Gerudo, Sheikah and Deku Scrubs.

** In this game, they have one of the freakier screams. Some think it sounds like a high-pitched elephant, but compared to ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', where they let out a little shriek, in this game they let out a ''very loud'' banshee-like wail.

*** Which begs the question of WHY there are two [=ReDeads=] down there...
** Don't use your Hookshot on them, either, unless you really want a hug. LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} [[http://youtu.be/5XV8RGcgw8U?t=5m11s learned this the hard way]]. ('''Warning: loud''')
* Molgera. Imagine walking into a ''massive'' room full of sand. Then you hear a flutey tune play, and sand starts pouring out of the ceiling, and the Triforce disappears under a sea of sand. Then an ''enormous'' fleshy worm-thing erupts out of the ground and starts flying around. The worst part is its mouth -- the jaws are just whipping around like crazy -- and the noise it makes. It sounds like a cross between a donkey braying loudly and an agonized scream. See it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enSXbSwFEG8 here]].

*** Same thing with Laruto, who was the Sage of the Earth Temple and also the only Zora seen in this game. The thing that killed her was the monstrous king of the Poes, Jalhalla, who enjoys flinging around fire and body slamming his enemies. So Laruto, who just may have been the last Zora, was either crushed or burned to death-- or possibly impaled on the spikes lining Jalhalla's chamber.

* First visiting Hyrule Castle frozen in time, having been completely overtaken by monsters, is incredibly creepy. If you listen closely, it actually does have its own music - if you can even call it that. It's basically this faint, muffled echo of the Hyrule Castle theme's melody.

The Tingle Tuner can provide some very creepy bits when you are in dungeons. For example, in Dragon Roost Cavern, Tingle will state on the [=GBA=] "There seems to be something written under the skull. "It looks like my life will end in this heat, I shall leave one last message here". Pretty dark for a Zelda game.
