[[caption-width-right:350:Trouble's afoot!]]

A scary character is approaching, and the camera focuses on his/her foot crushing something, or just emphasizes the frightfulness with a closeup of the character's feet/boots, which may be adorned with SpikesOfDoom or the like.

Differs from FeetFirstIntroduction in that it isn't necessarily the first appearance of the character.
