* ForDoomTheBellTolls: Near the end, the loud, ominous music is interrupted by a single tolling church bell, winding down into a soft finish for the song. In the ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' segment, the church bell prompts the retreat of [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Chernobog the Dark God]] and his ghouls; the bell denotes ''his'' doom. Mussorgsky himself ''intended'' the ringing of the church bell as breaking up the witches' sabbat described by the piece; witches and evil spirits traditionally could not bear the sound of consecrated bells.

* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: The music is very creepy and brilliantly evokes the idea of a witches' sabbath on a mountain during midnight, but the Fantasia adaptation adds in the visual component of Chernabog gathering an army of demons for some nefarious purpose, and he is the source of most of the terror the adaptation provides.

"Night on Bald Mountain" was a musical piece composed by Music/ModestMussorgsky completed on June 23, 1867. Unfortunately, [[ShaggyDogStory due to his own mentor refusing to play it and despite his efforts, it never saw production in his lifetime]]. In 1886, his work finally achieved fame and is still best known in Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov's edition, a 'fantasy for orchestra' titled A Night on the Bare Mountain (1886), composed five years after Mussorgsky's death. It instantly became a hit in St. Petersburg.
