* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' has quests with "Unstable" environments. "Unstable" means that while you're doing whatever the quest tells you to do, an "intruder" large monster will show up on the map at some point. This means you could be hunting another monster or gathering materials for yourself when suddenly, you encounter anything from the [[WarmUpBoss managable-at-all-levels]] Great Jaggi to endgame horrors like Deviljho or Rajang, and if you're playing G-rank quests in ''Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate'', it's likely you'll encounter their ''[[SuperMode Apex]]'' versions.

* This is the main source of terror in ''Subnautica''. While the game itself is a survival adventure game and not a horror game, there's nothing more unnerving than treading across the seafloor of an alien planet, unable to see anything 5 feet in front of you, not knowing if the source of that echoing cry was a [[GentleGiant Reefback]] saying hello, or a [[SeaMonster colossal, vicious predator that has you on the menu]].

* Small one in [[SuperMarioBros Mario Party DS]]. Boo's trophy description's last couple lines: "Do you think he's a nice ghost? Ask him yourself. He's right behind you."

* Have you ever taken a look at certain cults and religions such as Happyology, or the ones even more creepy? Well, in it's most extreme form, might I present [[WorldOfWarcraft The Cult Of The Damned]] They want the whole planet to be killed and revived to serve The Lich King. And they ''Almost succeeded'' but for a few GenreSavvy reactions from the remaining Alliance Kingdoms. Think about that for a minute. For any single warrior that fought in defence, and for every single individual that went to Northrend on the counter offensive, ''there is NO guarantee you will be granted a peaceful rest''...

* Not even {{Pokemon}} is safe.
** ''{{Pokemon}} Diamond and Pearl'', Old Chateau, Pre-National Dex. You will not be able to sit near an off TV for days without looking at it out of suspicion. And the Pokemon this is connected to isn't much better, considering it can control other electronics in Platinum (A washer, fan, lawnmower, refrigerator, or microwave oven). If that thing wasn't on your side when it possesses the lawnmower...
** ''{{Pokemon}} [=HeartGold=] and [=SoulSilver=]'' has a photographer that apparently follows you EVERYWHERE. Your player character is a 10 year old child. And he takes photos of you. Quite creepy...

* The beginning of ''VideoGame/HotlineMiami'' has the player character checking his phone messages, telling him that an order he never made had been delivered by his doorstep. As he opens up the package, he finds a rubber animal mask and an assignment to go and murder a group of Russian mobsters for a briefcase with implied consequences if he doesn't comply. Imagine someone who knows your number and where you live forcing you into a hitman ring for the sake of their own amusement, until [[spoiler:they send another masked killer to your house once they grow bored of you]].

* In ''[[MetroidPrime Metroid Prime 3]],'' on your way to the Seeker Missile, you walk past shielded tubes containing Metroids. Guess what happens when you get the item.
