* Entities are ''scary''.
** Aiden himself is walking (well, floating) ParanoiaFuel. He's completely invisible and intangible, capable of flying through even the thickest walls, and has a spectrum of powers ranging from MindOverMatter to DemonicPossession. Worse, even [[TheKidWithTheLeash Jodie]] herself has a hard time controlling him when his BerserkButton has been pressed. He could fling tables and knives at you, choke you, make your friend kill you, make ''you'' [[PsychicAssistedSuicide kill]] ''[[PsychicAssistedSuicide yourself]]''... and the only warning you'd have before it was too late would be a chill in the air.
*** In the date chapter, he ''[[{{Yandere}} points a knife at Jodie]]''. Talk about [[CrazyJealousGuy possessive...]]
** Special consideration needs to be made for the Yť'iitsoh, from its cryptic introduction to the banging noises on the house before we finally see its manifestation as a giant demonic sandstorm that is repeatedly attacking the farm.
* In "My Imaginary Friend", what happens if you decide to [[JumpScare make Jodie pull funny faces]] [[MirrorScare in the mirror...]]
** And then there is what happens if you linger in the creepy garage for too long.
* There's only one GameOver screen in the entire game that happens during Jodie's last fight with [[spoiler: the monsters as she tries to reach the Black Sun. Fail the prompts, Jodie dies and the Infraworld merges with Earth, destroying everything in our world and turning it into Hell. And Jodie monologues how she's now [[AndIMustScream trapped alone in the darkness forever with her regrets]].]]
** Worse, [[spoiler: this actually counts as one of the endings, so you have to let it happen once if you're going for [[OneHundredPercentCompletion 100% Completion]].]]
* This may or may not count, considering it's an EasterEgg, but if you use Aiden on a newspaper-reading man, it shows a headline stating [[HeavyRain the Origami Killer]] is on the loose. Could it be that Fahrenheit, Heavy Rain, and this game all take place in [[CrapsackWorld the same world?]]
* The entirety of the chapter "The Condenser." A condenser has opened a portal to the Infraworld, and Jodie is the only one able to get close enough to shut it down again. [[spoiler: So Jodie has to explore an [[AbandonedLaboratory abandoned CIA facility]] that is full of dead bodies and dark spirits that have managed to escape from the Infraworld. Then the dark entities start to [[DemonicPossession take over]] aforementioned dead bodies...]]
** It doesn't help that [[spoiler: there's a JumpScare as Jodie walks through a corridor, a dead body suddenly rises up behind her, but turning around reveals that it's still led down. The body does ''nothing'' for the rest of the chapter, but it's still absolutely terrifying.]]
* The portion of the game where we first find out that Nathan's wife and daughter were killed in a car crash. This is done through {{Foreshadowing}} in the form of both of them, ''with their injuries'', repeatedly appearing around Jodie, simply staring at her. We don't even get an explanation of who they are or what they want until Nathan gets the call.
