Nightmare Fuel: Kimi ni Todoke
- Sawako's appearance, particularly when forcing a smile, was Nightmare Fuel to other people for the first fifteen years of her life. It's even worse when she's soaking wet from the rain.
- 2nd Season, Episode 3: Sawako gives out the scariest unsmile she has ever made.
- At the cultural festival parade, Sawako's acting is so convincingly scary that it even freaked out the judges.
- The flashback to Ryu's mother's death in Chapter 63 is surprisingly scary, but in a different sort of way.
