Nightmare Fuel / Resident Evil Gun Survivor

  • In the first Survivor, you learn from a file that the Hypnos-T Type, the main subject of an Tyrant model enhancement project, was created by making use of a hormone found inside of teenagers' brains, one that's produced when they're frightened/stressed and can not be harvested from a corpse. Vincent Goldman knew that maximum fright/stress levels are caused by excruciating pain. Yes, he tortured kids to death in order to further his goals. Even Umbrella thought that his experiment was overly horrifying (and severely cost inefficient.) Just let that sink in.
    • Worse, the only way to extract the hormone was to open their skulls while alive and fully conscious in order to get said hormones.
    • This borders on Fridge Brilliance because of how teenaged victims had been a staple of oldschool horror. The fridge being that Resident Evil took this cliche and put it into a logical context.
    • In the two Chronicles games Wesker speculates that the T-Virus and it's derivatives mutate their host base on their mental states, which might be linked to chemical hormones associated with those feelings. If the theory is true, this means that the Hypnos-T Type is the literal manifestation of fear and terror.
  • Vincent Goldman himself is a creepy, creepy monster far worse than any of the zombies in the game. He's so bad that the people under him were trying to get him ousted from Umbrella for the sick stuff he was doing by reporting to corporate headquarters, and the game indicates Umbrella would have done it (or at the very least, Vincent took the threat of that happening seriously). This is the same group of people who gave Alfred Ashford his own private stock of prisoners to torture and execute, and gave the position of Raccoon City Police Chief to a psychotic rapist.
    • His diary is even worse, as it reveals that he released the T-Virus on the island on purpose just as a "Screw You" to the people on the island who wanted him gone. Together with the other entries, it makes him seem even more evil than he actually looks.
    • It gets even more worse! After releasing the virus and various damgerous specimens, he planned to escape the island so he could continue his work with Umbrella. Oh, he knew Umbrella would confront him for the incident on the island, but he already came up with an excuse. "It was just an accident". Thats right, this sociopath knows that hes such a valuable asset to Umbrella that he can get away with all the senseless murder by claiming it was an accident!
  • The Trashsweepers. Utilizing Uncanny Valley to the extreme, these beings look like Gas Mask Mooks... until they start moving in ways no normal person should move ever. And the hooting...
    • How about the fact that the Trashsweepers are explicitly described as being one of the lines of B.O.Ws that Umbrella has created? A species of genetically engineered Super Soldiers who have enough intelligence to use pack tactics, operate firearms, and obey orders instead of randomly attacking anything around them. This makes them potentially one of the most dangerous B.O.Ws that Umbrella has created.
  • The Hypnos-T Type. It's first form is uncannily human, and is introduced by killing Vincent/Andy/the UT Commander. Its second and third forms are the scariest, however: with an inhuman grimace, monkey-like sounds, and the fact that it's always angry make it a terror to fight. Oh, and it took two missiles from a helicopter to destroy the thing.
  • The diary entries in this game are Darker and Edgier than other entries in the series but two stand out:
    • The first is from a prisoner who was kidnapped by Umbrella, and his discovery of their plans and attempt to escape with other kids. This is after you learn that Vincent gunned down escapees from the prison, and the last entry in the diary is the night before that happened.
    • The second diary entry is from a worker there, who is a firm case of Even Evil Has Standards (he wanted them to have anesthetics) and by the end of his entry states this chilling line:
    I'm sure I'm going to the worst kind of Hell when I die. Or perhaps I'm already there.
