An action/adventure/horror game published by Eidos Interactive and released midway through the original UsefulNotes/PlayStation's life cycle, the game is the tale of three merciless mercenaries--Hana, Glas, and Deke. The daughter of a rich and powerful businessman has run away, and the trio have learned of this via an inside source and plot to find her. Although, the three of them plan to ransom her back to her father if all goes well. However, everything is not what it seems to be, and the girl in question is the key to an epic ordeal--possibly involving the fate of the world itself.

* GoldenEnding: Of the 3 endings in the original ''Fear Effect'', [[spoiler: the best can only be obtained by playing on hard mode. In it, Glas willfully pulls his gun back, allowing Hana to fight the monstrous Mr. Lam. Once she defeats him, Wee Ming promises to repay Hana and Glas for their sacrifices, and that she will never forget Hana before disappearing. The King of Hell attempts to attack Hana, only to get shot down by Glas. The King falls down a pit, which causes the area that Glas and Hana are in to start collapsing around them, causing them to flee for their lives. Crawling out of the now destroyed brothel, both are surprised to see Deke alive and well, with Glas surprised to see his once severed arm has grown back. Deke asks how they made out, with Hana and Glas agreeing they did just fine.]]

* EverythingTryingToKillYou: And they do. However, the students in the aquaducts will leave you alone if you don't go around actively shooting them, the Immortals will not fight you if you make the right choices (i.e. ''not'' shooting the students), and the girls in the bio-hazard suits will ignore Rain for as long as she doesn't have her weapons armed. Same goes for Hana and the guards in Madame Chen's restaurant while she's in the hooker outfit.
