'''[[caption-width-right:293: "WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?!"]]'''

* The RoboticReveal of a Hollow Child is ALWAYS a scary moment, particularly for ''the Hollow Child itself''.
* [[spoiler:Yoshiki's]] reveal as a Hollow Child is probably the most horrifying in the entire game. The [[SlasherSmile slasher smile]] and [[RedEyesTakeWarning evil red glowing eyes]] [[TwitchyEye that dance around independently of one another]] might have something to to with it.
* The whole sequence with Dan, Shindo and [[spoiler:Detective Kurosawa]] in the basement of the Amada building. Three humans vs HUNDREDS of [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot zombie-like defective Hollow Children]]. Considering they're rejected[=/=]defective versions of robots who believe themselves to be human, it's quite possible they have the mentality of a rejected[=/=]defective human. That is to say, they're ''homicidally insane''.
* Shindo's last meeting with Yoshiki, [[spoiler:or to clarify, his meeting with ''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot a bunch of crazed robot-zombie duplicates of Yoshiki with human faces and skeletal bodies]]''. UncannyValley to the Nth dregree]].
* Hollow Children are the ultimate infiltration agents - and they could be anywhere. Given that one Hollow Child became ''Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff'' - it passed all the background checks and vetting that needed to take place - you can't be sure you're not surrounded by them.
** Surrounded by them? For all you know, you could ''[[TomatoInTheMirror be]]'' one.
* Forget the fact that he's a crazy BetaTestBaddie who is responsible for all the horror relating to Hollow Children by virtue of being their creator, what's really scary about the [[spoiler:Amada AI]] is ''what was done to him''. [[spoiler:Imagine how you'd turn out if your "father" essentially ''tortured you from birth''.]]
* Hollow Children look the same as humans. How can you be sure the main characters aren't Hollow Children themselves? Granted, the Amada AI doesn't control them, but maybe it's because it isn't trying to.
* How about the idea that the little fact that [[spoiler: your mother was a Hollow Child]] is considered reason enough to send heavily armed military crews to hunt you down and kill you?
* The final boss, [[spoiler: Major Philips]]. Not as outwardly terrifying as the above examples, but his near DissonantSerenity and general PunchClockVillain attitude during the final encounter despite the circumstances puts him as far into the UncannyValley as the Hollow Children.
