----> Hen 1: Poor Roger, he was such a fine Rooster.
----> Hen 2: He's quite a fox now.
----> Hen 1: It's a shame what the wizard did to him.
----> Hen 2: I know, when he visits, [[TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody he doesn't know whether to be friendly or eat us]].

* The cursed crying woman; when Rosella asks what's wrong, she says it's her face. She then shows her face (facing away from the player) to Rosella, who screams, and immediate game over. How can a face be so scary that you can die from fear just by looking at it?

** Further FridgeHorror, read the KQIV entries above. After all of those, ''THIS'' is what ended up killing her from fright? (Keep in mind KQIV rivals VI for the title of scariest KingsQuest game.) It seems this may be a contender for the most literal "NothingIsScarier" in the entire series.

** With the unsettled ghosts previously mentioned, you actually take turns dealing with both. Dig up a item while dealing with zombies, deal with a freaky ghost, go back to the zombies again, then another ghost. About 4-5 times in succession.

Added DiffLines:

** This sequence was the subject of a live action advertisement for the game, that is just as dark and frightening. The actress is assaulted and dragged off at the end.


* Adding to the ParanoiaFuel of Manannan's house, Manannan will kill you if he happens upon you while you're carrying an item that can be used for spellcasting... which includes something as mundane as *a fly's wing*. You have to hide such items away under your bed (your only safe space in the house) while he's around. Granted, the game helps you out a bit by [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience showing a red outline]] around dangerous items in your inventory, but it's still a nasty way to keep you on your toes.

* Alexander interrupting the forced wedding of his beloved Cassima to Alhazred... only for [[spoiler:Cassima to affirm that she is in love with her bridegroom, and order Alexander's death]]. Of course, [[spoiler:it turns out that she's actually the genie in disguise]], but it's still a nasty shock.


* We know from the first meeting Alhazred is [[{{Jerkass}} no gentleman]]. When we find out what he did to Cassima's parents, he turns into "detestable slime bag." When we see that he was behind the islands' discord and colluded with Mordack, he jumps up to "pile of shit." When we realize that he plans to ''[[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness "dispose" of Cassima]]'' ''[[IHaveYouNowMyPretty after the wedding night]]''''', Alhazred turns into "Alex, skewer the bastard ''NOW!''"

* The gypsy showing Graham what was going on with his family. Mordak is ''torturing'' Alexander, and threatening to feed him to the cat. Said cat [[BalefulPolymorph used to be the same son-of-a-witch]] who had enslaved and brutalized Alexander for ''years.'' [[ThisIsWrongOnSoManyLevels On so many levels]], [[AdultFear that is the stuff of bad dreams]].

Added DiffLines:

** They also revamped the whole area making it creepier, complete with DramaticThunder and gothic music.



to:

* The two ghosts guarding the castle. In the original, they were just floating white ghosts. In the remake, they have scary half-skeletal half-ghost-like appearances. Sweet dreams.
