* NightmareFuel: Many enemies and places qualify, but the hands coming out of the mirrors in the subway restroom at the beginning of the game seem to be first scare factor for a lot of players. Other significant ones includes ghosts of children who only have legs and is just a wisp from the waist up, complete with creepy giggling.
** Well, some people consider it SurvivalHorror [[DefangedHorrors for kids]].
** Seto enters a trashed room filled with boxes and other post-apocalyptic junk towards the end of the game. For those using one of the regular flashlights, there is nothing remotely disconcerting about this room. However, if you were using the flashlight that allows you to see hidden messages written on the walls, you will suddenly enter a room where literally every surface has "I don't want to die! I don't want to die! I don't want to die!" scribbled over it in an increasingly desperate hand. If you scare easily, do yourself a favor and don't enter the room with that flashlight.

* ScrappyMechanic - All weapons will eventually break; the fact that a RandomNumberGod controls it makes it such an annoyance, because a newly-purchased weapon just might be rendered useless following an enemy encounter. The inventory system may also get some flak: it's similar to the grid-based inventory of VideoGame/ResidentEvil4. You can arrange and rotate items as you wish, but it never feels like you have enough room, especially if you're packing backup weapons in case your primary breaks.
