** Just the idea of torturing soldiers in who-knows-where in general, when you think about it. And it gets progressively worse in later installments of the series.

** Same goes for whenever he goes through a mental breakdown; his erratic movements, that horrible screeching, the way he bangs his head against the floor...


* [[BigBad Liquid Snake]] deserves special mention here. Imagine facing off against a foe that is a fellow sibling with many deadly positive genes within his blood [[spoiler: the irony of Liquid finding himself believing that he was the inferior clone of Big Boss throughout the whole story]] and alot of super human like abilities to go with it. Liquid is a hard as nails bastard to take on... He's survived [[ImplacableMan explosions, bullets, crashes and even bout from the very top of Metal Gear Rex that would have killed Snake from a great height during the final fight between the two brothers. And if that wasn't enough, Liquid even survived the crash of a jeep too]]. Much to the chagrin and surprise of even [[OhCrap Snake himself]]. The only time he finally succumbed was by the experimental virus called "FOXDIE". So again, Liquid is one bad [[PrecisionFStrike motherfucker]] who should be well feared for these reasons!
** The fight on top of the Metal Gear Rex. The whole fight is a nerve racking bout. You have to defeat Liquid Snake within a short time. If you fail, you're welcome to [[LaughingMad Liquid's Maniacal laughter]] and the infamous "Game Over" screen.

* Metal Gear REX in general. It's a stealth mobile nuclear launch platform (its stealth missiles if not technically possible then at the very least plausible, even if only as a nuclear gun which is horrifying enough), funded by actual US government arms manufacturers no less who would not confirm nor deny the idea of such a project, that isn't technically illegal since it uses a rail gun to launch its nukes; had the project not gone FUBAR, who knows what it would've been used for. The best that Snake and Fox could do was to take out its radome. And, as [=MGS4=] shows, is tough enough to be ''fully operational'' despite being in disrepair for years and can outfight its successor, Metal Gear RAY, with some support. It would still be a few years until technology advanced enough that Rex was truly obsolete.

** In the ''Twin Snakes'' version of his psychokinetic demonstration, the [[SpookyPainting portraits]] behind him start to [[CreepyHighPitchedVoice laugh at you]].

Added DiffLines:

* Snake's torture at the hands of Ocelot. The pain he's going through is bad enough, but the knowledge that Meryl will die if he gives in pushes it to downright horrifying.


* The underground caves definitely belong here. The creepy music combined with the distant howling of those dangerous wolf-dogs are really unnerving.

Added DiffLines:

* Poor [[spoiler: Meryl]] being shot down by Sniper Wolf several times with Snake being unable to do a thing about it without getting himself shot and possibly killed as well. [[AdultFear Bear in mind that this happens to someone who's still only a teenager and not a fully-grown adult yet]].


Added DiffLines:

** The JumpScare delivered by a [[spoiler: panicked Otacon, with his face suddenly zoomed-in on his Codec portrait, who frantically screams at Snake that the Genome Soldiers wearing the stealth suit prototypes are in the elevator with him]]. What makes this notable is that [[spoiler: Otacon]] is the only character to have this notable feature.
