* The invincible sea creature found during the obligatory water stage. It can't be killed, is incredibly fast, and has an unusual looking mouth full of sharp teeth just waiting to gobble you up.

* Most players when they get to the end of the first level will use a zipline to cross a massive pit and reach the finish. More inquisitive players may decide to climb down and check out what shiny powerups could be down there. When you finally get off the cliff and onto the pit floor, as you're about halfway across the pit, a T-rex pops out of the cave in front of you.
** Then, should you kill (or just run past) the T-rex and find the secret hidden at the back of the cavern and start to run back, a ''second'' T-rex appears.

* The spiders in ''Franchise/TombRaider II'' are quite creepy, what with how they tend to suddenly appear and the loud shuffling sound they make as they move around. The [[GiantSpider giant ones]] in the Temple of Xian level are [[SpidersAreScary much, much worse]]. And they're encountered in a [[OhCrap dark cave filled with huge webs]].

Added DiffLines:

** The hag in the page image deserves special mention. It is a creature that zealously guards a certain item, and when you try to approach said item, it grabs Lara and hammers her stomach with its elbow, forcing a return to the surface for air. You have to trick it into a cage at one point, which results in it getting taken out of the water and eaten alive by the changelings, which you don't get to see by virtue of the camera angle but can certainly hear.

* The "entombing of Set" cutscene shows his host placed in a sarcophagus, as a spiked ceiling slowly descends on to the body. The camera cuts to the drains on the contraption, through which blood now freely flows.

** Lara's death at the hands of the Abomination. It grabs her by the leg (and she is clearly terrified,) then proceeds to thoroughly wreck her stuff by smashing her against the floor three times (all the while you hear her bones breaking with each hit). Once the Abomination, with its head turned 90º to the right, notices Lara is dead, it just casually drops her body (which is now mangled enough that it easily contorts upon impact) to the floor. The scene seems to play out like a child given a very noisy toy trying to make it stop by breaking it, which makes for some [[FridgeHorror Fridge Horror]] as to the Abomination's mental state.

** And there's her death at the hands of the aforementioned Abomination where it scoops a ''terrified and screaming Lara'' in one hand while dangling her by ''one leg'' then proceeds to ''thoroughly wreck her stuff'' by '''brutally smashing her against the floor three times (all the while you hear the sickening, breaking and crushing of her bones).''' Once the Abomination, with its head turned 90º to the right, notices the now very broken Lara is dead, it just casually drops her body (which is now mangled enough that it ''easily contorts upon impact'') to the floor as though she were some toy. Indeed, the scene seems to play out like a child given a very noisy toy trying to make it stop by breaking it adding to the [[FridgeHorror Fridge Horror]] as the Abomination seems to very developmentally delayed.

* One of the game's camera glitches allows the player to glimpse inside Lara's model while in look mode. In her head are things man was never meant to see...
* The ragdoll physics for death animations. While the results are often hilariously awful, sometimes you see Lara's body tumble down stairs, or fall off into pits... or stretch to impossible lengths...

* The Shiva Statues in the Temple Ruins. The first one encountered is an inanimate stone sculpture, holding up its 6 swords menacingly with an unsettling SlasherSmile on its face. In the very next room, Lara finds another statue...which glows with a strange orange mist, then promptly comes alive, turns completely black with red eyes, and chases her around the room with its ''6 swords''. They take ''forever'' to kill and can block Lara's gunshots with their swords.
** Even worse, in the second time they appear as enemies, the player might try to find a safe spot by climbing a set of stairs and taking refuge on the higher ledge. Not a wise choice, as the statue is savvy enough to ''climb up the stairs after Lara''.

* One particular room in the RX-Tech Mines forces Lara to slide down a long slope into a pitch-black room with steam rising out of grates on the ground. A giant mutant rushes out of the hallway as she approaches it. After defeating the mutant, Lara must [[StupidityIsTheOnlyOption go into the pitch-black hallway from whence it came]] and crawl under the grates to pick up some items. As she does so, the player gets to watch another giant mutant run by right above Lara, enter the hallway, then wait patiently right outside the crawlspace for her to emerge.



* Some of the sound effects in the game are just...off. Pulling the switches that raise/lower the water level in London's water tanks produces a [[https://youtu.be/SAsMkJNtsKw?t=4m9s noise that does not sound anything like water flowing.]]



* Towards the end of the All Hallows level, Lara is swimming through a set of flooded tunnels riddled with floating corpses.
* The end of the level "Costal Village", where Lara ends up finding a mercenary who had his leg chewed off. While there are plenty of [[IAmAHumanitarian cannibals]] around, Lara notes that they don't eat down to a person's bones. As they continue to have their discussion, the tribal music starts and steadily gets louder. The mercenary mentions that the cannibal tribe's god lives up in the hills. Guess where Lara's heading next?

* In the Cambodia levels, Lara finds many skeletons of unfortunate explorers, and later finds one impaled on some spikes near a plinth, with its backpack in a hand (which Lara takes). Keep in mind this is ''teenage Lara''.

* In the first level, if Lara dawdles too long at the first slope, a jarring cutscene plays showing the point-of-view of an unknown creature swooping towards Lara, while strange wailing sounds play in the background. Granted, said creature is just a rabid dog, but from the cutscene one would be forgiven for thinking it was some kind of instant-death trigger.
