* The Tenno are MookHorrorShow incarnate if you think about it. They're terrifying and unstoppable OneManArmies, each with their own personal style of slaughter. From Volt's ShockAndAwe, Ember PlayingWithFire, and Saryn being a PoisonousPerson they're all uniquely terrifying. They fly around in stealth ships and can show up anywhere. From the most isolated outposts to secure fortresses, at any time.

They can be seen as mini-Stalkers, seeing as they can turn invisible and invulnerable,can regen health, can [[NoSell Dispel]] your abilities, and can easily kill you if you're not cautious.
** The Blackout tactical alert. [[NothingIsScarier There are no enemies]] until you reprogram the navigation computer. Then 75 Grineer Manics appear out of nowhere...

!![[AC:The Corpus]]
* The Zanuka Project: various sliced-up Tenno and their warframes formed into a mechanical quadruped controlled by Corpus technology. [[spoiler:What the hell this does to the unfortunate Operators on the other side of the Warframes in question is unclear.]]
* Valkyr, the Warframe produced as a byproduct of the Zanuka Project. All subsequent Valkyr frames are based off of the template of the original. It's impossible to tell what frame Valkyr used to be, or if we've even seen it yet, but that's not even the scariest part. Given that Warframes draw their power from the [[EldritchLocation Void]] in a manner that is suggested to be intrinsic to their psychology and outlook on life, it suggests that whatever Alad V [[ColdBloodedTorture did to Valkyr]] caused her psychology to [[MindRape change so drastically]] it ''altered her Void imprint''.
** [[spoiler:And knowing what we do now, the implication seems to be that Valkyr's original Operator was ''linked to it'' during the entire procedure, which seriously starts to approach [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka Soryu]] levels of [[BodyHorror character]] [[MindRape horror]].]]

!![[AC:The Sentients]]



*** Ember Prime's codex entry implies that the Orokin were so desperate that they even [[spoiler: threw ''kids'']] into the Void. [[spoiler:It was more an accident, really, but the ffect was the same.]]
** The Tenno themselves. Almost completely silent killers, who can strike almost anywhere and at any time. Their nature is largely unrevealed as well. All we know is that those who made it back from the void [[CameBackWrong came back wrong]]. High ranking Tenno can and will single-handedly wipe out entire armies, from lowly grunts to the elite of the elite. The only enemy who regularly gives a well equipped Tenno pause is the Stalker.

* You have read all of the entries here yes? The Sentients are '''returning'''.
** Unless you've seen the trailer for Tombs of the Sentient, you won't know when Teshin, the Conclave master, references them. All you'll know is he's trying to prepare you for the evils returning from beyond the outer terminus.
** Need we remind you again that the relic you interact with in ''Second Dream'' quest is [[spoiler: corpse of Lotus' father? Yes, that one gigantic pillar stuck underwater allllll the way up to the surface is only a part of it!]]
** How bad it got? They converted [[spoiler: the Stalker to their side!]]

* Reaching the lowest reputation possible with New Loka makes them suddenly dial the creepy-factor up to eleven if you then visit their syndicate menu.
-->'''New Loka Commander:''' You're just like the rest. Tainted and ruined beyond salvation.
** Given their flavor text and some of the rather unnerving statements New Loka's leader says even when she likes you might point to a [[ANaziByAnyOtherName much darker intention]]. Some players even wonder if New Loka [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness might target]] the 'impure' Zariman children once the war is over if they ever found out what the Tenno really are.
* On the relays, some of the Red Veil are preparing to vivisect a captured Grineer. Also, they have several infested in a cage, for unknown purpose.
* Desert Skates, at least once you see their underside, are pure BodyHorror. Seriously, [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130812223114/warframe/images/5/5d/CBskate.png that is not the face of mercy.]] It's easy to think that the average Desert Skate WasOnceAMan...
** Although, Skates are real animals related to mantas and sharks, and their undersides are [[http://etc.usf.edu/clippix/pix/thorny-skate-underside_medium.jpg quite normal looking]]... compared to other mantas and skates
* The cryptic message you find in the Orokin Derelict at the end of the Stolen Dreams questline.
-->All-All is silent- Hushed-hushed and empty is-is-is the womb of the sky.
-->'''All is silent and calm. Hushed and empty is the womb of the sky.'''
** Even creepier? That's from the Popol Vuh, a '''real-life''' Mayan text that details their creation myth. Those lines were used to describe the 'primordial world', what existed before the world itself was created.
* You have read all of the entries here yes? The Sentients are '''returning'''.

* Infested Juggernauts. When they spawn, the lights flicker, similar to assassins, but [[HellIsThatNoise they also let out a terrifying roar]] which buffs all Infested around you.
* A bit hard to spot, but during the ''Second Dream'' quest when the Stalker [[spoiler:put his War great sword through your Warframe, he was [[DeathGlare looking at the Operator the entire time]].]]
** Then there's the fact that the warframe that was just described as a mindless machine, takes War, the current source of the Stalker's power, ''[[ItCanThink and breaks it]]''.
** The premise. You spend quality time with your nice and cozy warframe [[spoiler:then you got decked back out into your unfamiliar body, dazed and confused,]] while a dozen Sentient are out for your blood...
* The Orokin. Just the Orokin. Each new bit of lore focusing on them reveals a new, ''incredibly disturbing'' level of dehumanization, scientists with {{Morally Ambiguous Doctorate}}s, and incredibly unethical experimentation.
** Which gets even worse when it's revealed that the Tenno are [[spoiler: {{Child Soldiers}} who haven't aged a day since they entered cryostasis centuries ago. The Orokin considered it acceptable to take casualties from a horrific {{Teleporter Accident}} and turn them into soldiers just to make use of the destructive powers the Void gave them. These silent masters of warfare, [[MookHorrorShow capable of slaughtering absolutely anything in their path]], are ''less than seventeen years old'' when they finally wake from stasis. And they've experienced all those battles as if they were these in person, thanks to their Warframe proxy units.]]
* Lately (as of March 2016), players will find [[spoiler:[[ParanoiaFuel Infested tumors]]]] inside their orbiter.
* In Specters of the Rail, we finally learn of Ordis' origins. [[spoiler:He was originally a soldier/mercenary named Ordan Karris, who fought for the Orokin for so long and so viciously that he became known as [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Beast of Bones]]. When he was brought before them to honour his service, he used the opportunity to [[KillTheGod kill as many of them as he could]]. Unfortunately, they had planned for this, and his assassination attempt failed. As punishment for his treason, they subjected him to a process that converted his mind into a Cephalon. All parts of his mind that weren't needed were locked away, and any thought of rebellion was suppressed by what is implied to be a neural sentry. After the fall of the Orokin, the sentry broke down, leaving Ordis free to remember. He ended up locked in a loop of trying to recall his past, then wiping his memory in horror when he did.]]
** Of note is [[spoiler:the weapon he uses to carry out his plan. Known as "Bone plugs", they are hooked fragments of bone that are embedded in the wielder's neck, wrapped around the superior vein. When used, the wielder pulls them out to use as daggers, so they only have a few seconds before they [[TakingYouWithMe succumb to blood loss]].]]

* The [[EldritchLocation Void]]. Pristine. Beautiful. [[LostTechnology Transcendant]]. Utterly empty except for "corrupted," nearly-silent versions of enemies you face in normal levels. [[NothingIsScarier No music plays during these levels]]. Look out a window and all you'll see is black dots in an endless white expanse. It begs two questions when you first set foot in them - who were the Orokin, and where did they go?
** The Orokin Void tileset now got their own soundtracks, and the creepiness might just be worse since it's mostly OminousLatinChanting.

* [[AndIMustScream Let's just say that you don't want to fail a Rescue mission by time out]]. The fact that it was audio only doesn't help.
** In a similar vein, the way capture targets howl as you capture them. Were it not for the ''Stolen Dreams'' quest, you could be forgiven for thinking you were subjecting them to torture or a FateWorseThanDeath
* The Stalker, if you aren't expecting him. You're out, minding your own business, celebrating a boss' defeat, when suddenly, the lights flicker. Then:
