Nightmare Fuel / Silverwing

  • Tons of horrible things happen to bats, from burning alive to being bombs to getting your wings pecked off (as a child— and still alive) to suicide. And the list goes on and on.
    • Not to mention the things that could have happened to Shade and Marina: Being left for an owl, being lost in the sea(Shade) and drowning(Marina),not to mention being struck by lightning and getting attacked by bigger bats that could tear out your heart in a second. Shade and Marina were also close to getting their wings pecked off.
  • Project X-Ray in Sunwing, responsible for the Humans Are Cthulhu trope. Also Truth in Television; see The Other Wiki.
  • The implication that Goth ate all of the bats in the snowy cabin and wore all of their bands as a sort of hunting trophy in Silverwing.
    • This might be an inversion, as this is what saves Shade and Marina in the second last chapter: Goth and Throbb get struck by lightning captured by their bands.
  • Goth and the cannibal bats in general.
  • One could point out countless examples in Firewing, but in the end, the whole book is pretty much this. It is Hell after all.
  • Cama Zotz himself is pretty frightening, both before and after we meet him in person.
