* The giant spider in ''Recap/TintinTheShootingStar''. First Tintin visits the planetarium and views through the telescope when he sees another gigantic spider. It turns out it is just a small one on top of the lens. That night Tintin has a nightmare where Philippus the prophet shows him a a full size poster depicting a huge black spider, with the caption: "real life measurements". But later, as Tintin travels to the comet which crashed into the sea it turns out there is a giant spider after all! Grown to the size of a large dog due to the comet's radiation!

* Throughout ''"Recap/TintinTintinInTibet"'', the yeti is portrayed with a great deal of sympathy (and as a the occasional butt of a joke), but when he catches Tintin in his cave, trying to make off with Chang... ''brrrrrr''.

** In ''"Recap/TintinTheSevenCrystalBalls"'' Tintin and his companions all have the same nightmare: that they are visited by the Inca mummy Rascar Capac who enters their bedroom by night and then throws a poisonous crystal ball on the floor. It's probably the scariest moment out of all the books. The SlasherSmile on the mummy's face makes it even worse.
*** This is even more terrifying in the animated series.

** In ''"Recap/TintinTintinInTibet"'' Haddock dreams he meets Professor Calculus, who claims he has lost his umbrella. Haddock then tells him he's got a lot of umbrellas with him, but has no idea where they came from. Calculus is angried by his answer and tells him: ''"You lie! It's red pepper."'' Then Haddock suddenly wears Calculus' clothes, while Calculus wears those of Haddock. Now grown to enormous size Calculus hits Haddock on the head wih an umbrella, claiming it's "Checkmate!"

Added DiffLines:

** In "''[[Recap/TintinTintinAndAlphArt Tintin and Alph-Art]]''", the opening page has Haddock dreaming about Bianca Castafiore showing up in his bedroom and demanding that he drink his medicine (a bottle of Loch Lomond). Haddock points out that he still can't drink it, which causes Castafiore to turn into a huge half-human-half-bird monster and then start attacking Haddock.

Added DiffLines:

** The fact that the beginning of the book opens with [[ApocalypseHow a meteor about to strike the Earth]]; fortunately Prof. Phostle's calculations are off (and it switches fairly quickly to a wacky sci-fi adventure story), but the tension and helplessness in those few pages are deeply disturbing.

* In "Recap/TintinTintinInAmerica", Tintin and Snowy falling onto the conveyor belt in the factory and about to be made into corned beef and ''eaten''. Thank god for the striking workers, who [[spoiler: stopped the conveyor belt out of anger at their wage cut.]] And in the same album, the cow being turned into corned beef alive, and the "missing pet" notices outside the factory, when you realize that the pets were also made into beef... you will never look at corned beef the same again after that.

** Also from ''Recap/TintinTheSevenCrystalBalls,'' the seven Egyptologists that have been rendered comatose simultaneously regain consciousness at the same time every day and scream in terror before returning to their comatose state. It's never said what is [[NothingIsScarier making them scream]] like that except for a reference in ''Prisoners of the Sun'' about them being tormented. Of course it is ''much'' worse in the animated series; in the comics it was just one panel of all seven of them writhing about, in the series we're treated to the sight of their weirdly blueish-grey skin and close ups of them screaming which is itself horrific to listen to.
