* ''TwentyFour'', outside of the main characters that survive for more than one season, nearly anybody can turn out to be TheMole, or be aiding the terrorist plot, even people in CTU or politicians in the White House.

** Outside
of the main characters that survive for more than one season, nearly anybody can turn out to be TheMole, or be aiding the terrorist plot, even people in CTU or politicians in the White House.House.
** Given how regular the terrorist attacks on the country here, imagine being one of the people in the show living their mundane everyday lives. Only to be infected with a lethal virus outbreak that will kill you in hours in the most agonizing way possible. Or the plane you're on to have its route hijacked and crashed into another plane. Or for a nuke to go off and reduce you to ashes.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''. The [[ShapeShifter Changelings]] of the Dominion infiltrating TheFederation. The fact that they were able to push a galaxy-spanning, peaceful society to the brink of collape with something like ''four'' moles sowing suspicion and mistrust is ''deeply'' unsettling. Plus the [[WhamLine classic line]] from Odo:

* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'', If your best friend is randomly called down to the principles office, they are not coming back. They are getting kidnapped by all the teachers in the school, her existence erased, because she is the Chosen One.

* ''OneThousandWaysToDie'': If there's anything that that show has taught us, it's that ''anything'' can kill you. Death is waiting for you around every corner, and it's nothing short of a miracle that you've managed to avoid him for this long.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'' episode "Free Spirit" is a prime example of this, as a [[TheDisembodied disembodied person]] with a grudge goes after the scientists responsible for his state by [[BodySurf possessing all sorts of people]] to off them one by one, his victims never being able to know where the danger might come from. In the end he reveals [[spoiler:that he framed the protagonist for several murders by taking control of her body, then visits her in prison to assure her that he'll be tormenting her for some time to come.]]

* True-life ''Mystery Diagnosis''! At least for House's victims the symptoms just suddenly "appeared" - imagine living with mysterious, disfiguring, incredibly painful and seemingly incurable symptoms ''that all your doctors dismiss'' for '''decades''' because the diseases that cause them are so rare that most doctors never even know they exist. Even worse, many of the diseases are autoimmune diseases-a kind of illness where the immune system, which protects the body from disease, [[MinorInjuryOverreaction gets its programming scrambled and mistakes body parts and organ tissue for foreign pathogens]], causing it to attack those parts and tissues to horrifying effect. The thought that the system that protects you from disease could suddenly go haywire and start destroying your body in so many ways ought to keep you up for many nights.

* ''TheSarahConnorChronicles''. There might just be a time-traveling, implacable killing machine hiding inside the walls, floors, or ceiling of your house, right now, with a weapon, waiting to burst out and kill you. Or, if not in your house, in someone else's. Or inside any other building. Waiting. Waiting...

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/OnceUponATime''' now has the MemeticMutation of "EVERYONE IS CORA"... because, at some point, she ''has actually posed as everyone''. The paranoia fuel is working out if it's ''actually'' the character... or her in disguise.
** Occasionally, Rumple gets in on the act, but that's much less common.

* ''[[{{V-2009}} V]]'': This trope looks to be the remake's bread and butter. Not only do the humans have to worry about anyone being a Visitor, but the Visitors have to worry about anyone being part of the Resistance, even other Vs. It gets even worse in "It's Only The Beginning". You know that swine flu cure that everyone's been so desperate to get? There might be V chemicals in there that will eventually turn you into a mummified, dessicated corpse. And there's no way to tell if the chemicals are present or not.
** See also the Vs tagging humans.

* Original flavor ''Series/LawAndOrder'' usually deals with murders, which while horrible are usually over quickly. Now, watch ''LawAndOrderSVU'' while you're a woman alone in the house and you'll be sleeping with a knife under your pillow just in case someone breaks into your house to torture and rape you.
** The ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Confrontation" ensures that you will never sleep soundly again. It opens with a rapist leaving the apartment of his most recent victim. When she calls one of the SVU detectives, we find out that this is not the first time this woman was raped by that man. She follows the guy down an alley where he looms suddenly out of the shadows and they fight. Then Detective Stabler shows up to a crime scene and finds her dead body. ...Did I mention this is only the pre-credits teaser?

** You think that's bad? In the ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Perverted" Olivia Benson is framed for murder. How? By replacing the DNA in a blood sample with hers using a standard laboratory centrifuge! The only way the culprit is discovered is because of his poorly-timed [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter speech]]. But, to quote the lab technician responsible, "Any biology undergrad can do it. It's a whole new world. Guess your free ride is over." Or so you would think. The very next episode Olivia Benson proceeds to threaten a suspect (unsuccessfully) with ... [[FridgeHorror DNA evidence]].
