** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-LauOdux1E The main menu music]]. It's just plain disturbing. It's very industrial and nonsensical, and the fact that it plays over some also quite creepy still shot of our drivers fighting and flying out of their cars doesn't help.

* [[MonsterClown Sweet Tooth's]] [[CarnivalOfFear Carnival]] [[MilitaryMashupMachine of Carnage]]. After Sweet Tooth [[spoiler: died after getting his wish]], his followers built a giant clown and carnival themed moving battle fortress in his honor. The whole damn thing is horrifying to look at: for starters, its a massive tank like contraption that can only be accessed through an elevator lift at the bottom guarded by a [[KillItWithFire flame spewing]] clown head. Once inside you have to fight through a giant pinball machine while being attacked by ''[[ChainsawGood chainsaw wielding]] [[MonsterClown monster clowns]]'', then race through a long tunnel filled with giant blades and saws, then finally take flight in a helicopter where you must fight essentially the FinalBoss of the game. The final boss by the way is a '''[[GiantMecha giant]] [[KillItWithFire fire breathing]], [[ScaryTeeth sharp toothed]], [[EyelessFace eyeless]] clown head that will lunge at you in an attempt to take a bite out of your helicopter if you get too close'''.

** Minion doesn't have a story in this game, but looking at his [[http://user-cdn.spring.me/photos/20120727/n5013592ba9a8b.jpg close-up image]] will probably give you nightmares on its own. (especially when you realize that the thing he's using as a mask is literally the mutilated head of a cow.) Maybe it's better that he didn't get a story after all.

* When it comes to NightmareFuel heavy characters in ''Black'', the following people are especially worthy: [[MonsterClown Needles Kane]], [[BodyHorror No Face]], [[{{Yandere}} Bloody Mary]], [[SerialKiller Cage]], [[WeCanRebuildHim Charlie Kane]], [[AxCrazy Billy Ray]].

\n** Minion's ending, where he steals back his power from a cowering Calypso, then throws him into Hell. Counts as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome though, since we get to see Calypso get his [[KarmicDeath comeuppance]].
* Plenty of the character endings in ''Twisted Metal 4'', even with the game having the [[{{Sequelitis}} reputation]] that it has with the fanbase. Examples:
** Goggle Eye's wish ends with him having to spit bugs out of his mouth at a no ending rate, all because he wanted to contain all bugs in the world to kill them.
** [[Music/RobZombie Rob]] [[AsHimself Zombie]]'s ending is an odd one. Rob doesn't speak for himself, but instead has a very disturbing disembodied floating version of his own head speak for him, much like the small clown speaking for Sweet Tooth. Zombie's wish is to [[OhCrap "let this world hear the wails and war cries of a dead man's soul."]] [[ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic Don't fret, though.]] His wish is granted as only a brief clip from the [[AwesomeMusic "Super Beast" music video]].

** Preacher's story is pretty creepy, especially the depiction of the "demon" tormenting his mind. The whole story gets worse once it is found out that[[spoiler: the demon ''is his own psyche''.]]

* Captain Rodgers in the second game is ghastly in appearance. He is depicted as a very elderly man who wishes to be young again. He is severely wrinkled, has pale blue skin, and has an eerie drooped face with [[DullEyesOfUnhappiness dull starring eyes]]. He essentially looks like a living corpse.

He is being severely wrinkled, elderly he has tons of wrinkles, pale blue skin, and has an eerie drooped face with [[DullEyesOfUnhappiness dull starring eyes]]. He essentially looks like a living corpse.



** [[ThoseTwoGuys Mike and Stu's]] ending involves them wanting the ability to fly. Calypso kindly grants their wish. Mike and Stu, ecstatic about their newly granted wish proceed to jump off the side of the building they are on and plummet to their death. Their wish actually was granted as two plane tickets, which Calypso would kindly have given to them if they didn't immediately jump. Though it also counts as a CrowningMomentOfFunny, the fact that we are given a still shot of the duo face-first against the pavement with a blood puddle forming is really unsettling.

** The climax of Mortimer's ending has Calypso escaping the lost souls summoned upon him by Mortimer by grabbing the wing of a moving plane. He then peers into a window of the plane with a [[NightmareFace sinister look on his face]], and thanks a small boy next to the window for playing Twisted Metal. The boy is in [[TearsOfFear tears]] upon this sight.

with his NightmareFace.




** For starters, ''this'' is the game that introduces Needles Kane's clown mask design. You know, the one that is '''used as the picture for this very page'''. Is an explanation even needed? The mask alone is NightmareFuel enough, but this is the game that also introduced his serial killer persona. No longer is Needles depicted as a [[PlayedForLaughs goofy]] sociopath or an ice cream addict, but a serious bloodthirsty killer with disturbing motives. These features would become the [[CharacterizationMarchesOn definitive depiction of the character]] that would carry on in the later games.



** Mr. Grimm in this game is also quite disturbing, even taking into account that he was essentially The Grim Reaper in the previous games. In ''Black'', Grimm is a Vietnam veteran who, upon getting captured by Vietcong, is forced to eat his fellow soldier and friend Benny to avoid starvation as a form of torture by the capturers. He then sewed his comrades skull to his own face as a helmet. Wanting revenge for the man who ruined his life, he fights through Calypso's contest to gain his reward. Once he wins, [[spoiler: he is given the chance to eat his commanding advisor from the war. Afterwards, Grimm admits overtime he has ''gained a strange craving for human flesh'']].
** No Face. [[NightmareFace Just]] [[MouthStitchedShut No Face]]. His backstory involves him losing a boxing match, and because of this the facial doctor that works on him afterwards disfigures his face because No Face made him lose money on the match. As No Faces's reward for winning Calypso's contest, [[spoiler: he gets the chance to murder said doctor, by '''[[IronicDeath punching him in the face]] [[NoKillLikeOverKill with a scalpel and knife covered boxing glove]]'''.]]

** Mr. Grimm's ending involves him begging Calypso to make the people of Earth die faster so he can get more souls. [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything The whole scenario is meant to reference drug withdrawal]], since the lack of souls he obtains makes him weaker. Once his wish is granted, everyone on Earth begins to kill each other in an endless war until humanity becomes extinct. Mr. Grimm enjoys the large amount of souls he obtains from this war, but sadly since humanity is extinct there are no more souls to gain, and like any other druggie, [[AndIMustScream Mr. Grimm hungers for another fix...]]

Dollface's more so because of its ability to [[ExorcistHead rotate its head]] from having a standard cute baby doll face to [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-0Hicwyv3E6M/T7AG6KmeWXI/AAAAAAAADKw/U2GVbJz3lD0/s640/ironmaiden.jpg this]].

The sheer size of its the thing is horrifying, especially for the fact that ''you have to fight it''.
