** The above ending's dialogue, however, is actually taken from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5QfEOsD-zM Birdie's ending]], where he decides NOT to kill M. Bison and try to use the Psycho Drive to gain M. Bison's power. Birdie ends up getting trapped in the Psycho Drive as it slowly drains his strength, and Birdie can't do any thing but scream for help and beg for someone to stop the machine.

** In addition, Bison says "We have decided to grant her a private audience" before [[BatheHerAndBringHerToMe having Chun-Li brought to his bed chamber]]. If she hadn't known martial arts, what exactly would he have done to her?


** If you lose to M. Bison in ''Alpha 3'', you can't continue. You're forced to watch as he stuffs your beaten character into a machine to power his Psycho Drive, which kills them in the process. He then proceeds to take over the world, destroying cities with the weapon. The music for the fight with him, titled "Brave or Grave," really sets the mood.

* The film's famous ButForMeItWasTuesday line named a trope, but in-context it's terrifying. Chun-Li explains how Bison and his minions were stopped from destroying her village by Chun-Li's father. As Bison was forced into retreat, he had Chun-Li's dad shot by a sharpshooter, purely out of spite. She's wanted revenge/justice ever since, and it's clearly driven her life. Bison then genuinely apologizes and bluntly informs her that he can't remember the incident at all. It drives home how senseless Bison and his plans really are; he's done so much evil that it's all blurred together.


** Later he attacks Ken and Eliza at their wedding, toying with Ken as the slashes he inflicts make him woozy from blood loss. If not for Guile's intervention, he'd have killed Ken, and Vega still puts up a decent fight against Guile before retreating.

* ''NightmareFuel/StreetFighterIII''




!!''Street Fighter III''
* The defeated characters' poses in Street Fighter III: Second Impact are pretty freaky, especially Akuma's and Oro's. The former spits out green blood in a freaky way, while the latter's eyes sockets appear empty, making him look like a zombie. Notably, these are the first and thus far, only games in the SF series to depict ''male'' characters shedding tears after being beaten.
** Some characters, like Urien, look as if they were literally beaten to death. Ken, on the other hand, looks horrendously disfigured.
** On the subject of tears, this becomes very jarring if the victor's quote implies that the loser is about to be killed. Example: Dhalsim stating that "I will meditate, and then destroy you," after having just defeated Chun-Li in the original SFII.


* ''NightmareFuel/StreetFighterIV''
* ''NightmareFuel/StreetFighterV''




!!''Street Fighter IV''
* Seth is completely naked, but his cybernetic implants manage to hide his unmentionables. FullFrontalAssault, indeed.
** Subverted ''just slightly'' in one of his downloadable alternate costumes: it gives him pants and boots, which eliminate the first part, but contribute more to the second part due to the pants being ''extremely tight''.
** His Ultra Combo from ''IV''. If he can do that, imagine what else he could do to you.
** The BLECE weapon Seth is working on is a pretty gruesome thing. It releases an energy that causes cells to boil and explode.
* In his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMuqJAbxVXI Big Bang Tornado,]] Rufus starts to spin on the place really, ''really'' fast. While doing so, however, it looks like his head is ''standing perfectly still'', watching at the player with ''scary, evil eyes''. If you look closely when the game goes into slow motion though, you can see him spinning his head. He's just [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotting_%28dancing%29 spotting]] [[ShownTheirWork to keep from getting dizzy]], and he's just doing it really fast.
* This game's version of Evil Ryu. Remember in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Alpha]]'' when he was [[PaletteSwap just tanned with a black gi instead of a white one]]? A rather badass palette swap. ''[[EvilMakeover Here?]]'' He's got [[SNKBoss Shin Akuma's]] [[ClothingDamage torn]] [[SupernaturalIsPurple purple gi instead]] (ala Super Saiyan Goku vs Frieza), [[AnimeHair spiky red devil hair]], [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing]] [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], [[FangsAreEvil elongated canines]], ''[[ScarsAreForever and a huge hole burned in his chest with Akuma's flaming symbol burned into his back]], [[FridgeHorror both of which spout]] '''[[FridgeHorror lava]]''' ''. He looks like a zombie straight out of ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' or like [[FusionDance Akuma merged with]] [[GrandTheftMe or hijacking Ryu's body]] [[spoiler:[[MagnificentBastard Xehanort style]]]].
* One has to wonder what happened to [[AxCrazy Juri]] to make her the really crazy way she is. She's plenty of this already in game canon, considering [[MemeticMolester the way she]] [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence hits on her victims]] [[DarkActionGirl before she beats the tar out of them]].
* The deal with [[spoiler: the Dolls]] is already scary, but [[spoiler: Decapre]]'s side of it is even worse. [[spoiler: Not only she's the only of the non-Cammy Dolls who wasn't kidnapped and brainwashed, but she's a [[CloningBlues *clone*]] of Cammy]], meaning that [[spoiler: unlike the other girls, she doesn't have a past life or anything outside of constant experimentation by Shadaloo]]. And this is made worse because [[spoiler: after the deals in Alpha and the beatdown from Juri]], [[spoiler: her body is decaying and she's ''about to die''.]] The effects on [[spoiler: her]] body and mind are ''terrifying''.
* Although SFIV's Ultra attacks often contain SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome, some of them are executed so ''brutally'' that you have the instinctive urge to wince every time your chosen character is subjected to an Ultra.
* Oni. He's basically a blue-skinned, demonic version of Akuma, except this time there are ''No. Holds. Barred.'' Even worse are his victory and game over animations. If he wins against a character, you'll get to see the [[SarcasmMode lighthearted depiction]] of Oni slamming your character into the ground as they have a near-dying expression on their faces. In the losing character's game over animation, it's implied that he/she dies.
* The fate of the Dolls in ''IV''. In Alpha III they had a HopeSpot in E. Honda's ending, where he gives them a place to stay and teaches them sumo wrestling. Here, they are stored in capsules while unconscious, subjected to a brutal CurbStompBattle by Juri (who also uses Juni as a human shield in a fight against Cammy), and presumably subjected to experiments by Seth until they expire. Juli and Juni manage to escape their fates, but Juli is near-catatonic and completely unable to respond to external stimuli, while Juni, who got off lucky by comparison, is so traumatized by her past ordeals that she can't remember ''anything''.

!!''Street Fighter V''
* Getting blown up is never fun but Charlie can probably tell you first hand it's less about the explosion and more about what would have to be done in order to get you back on your feet that's unsettling. The exposed parts of his body in ''Street Fighter V'' tell a chilling tale of what he probably had to go through after his HeroicSacrifice: large swaths of skin having to be grafted to his body (including a sizable chunk of his head) and whoever did it probably didn't have access to the best equipment, given that the skin patches are held in place by large staples (instead of stitches) and are a sickly green color, meaning that they may have had to use skin that wasn't appropriate for his body for lack of anything better. Then there's the PowerGem pulsating on his forehead.
** The things he does to his opponents are not very comforting either. Charlie's attack on Chun-Li in his gameplay trailer had him ambushing her unawares and the screen going black as Chun-Li screams in terror. Later gameplay videos revealed exactly what he does during his new super, called "Judgment Saber". After appearing behind the opponent, he creates a vertical Sonic Boom in the shape of a blade and chops downward, ''sending energy cutting into the opponent [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe from their head down to their waist]]''. And he gives his signature "Too easy!" quote from ''Alpha 3'', but instead of sounding cheerful, it sounds completely devoid of emotion and almost condescending.
** [[https://youtube.com/watch?v=6UaU5LrRwf8 His story mode]] manages to be simultaneously horrifying and heartbreaking by confirming that his ''Alpha 2'' ending, the one where he's betrayed by his fellow Air Force unit and shot via helicopter before being sent careening off a Venezuelan waterfall, is his ''canon'' ending. One has to wonder what was going through his mind during that moment. A paragon of justice and virtue, betrayed by those he once called comrades. CruelAndUnusualDeath doesn't even begin describe it.
* SFV introduces four new characters to the series. One of these four is Necalli, a wild savage straight out of the ancient Aztec with a vicious, bestial fighting style and appearance. He has no real finesse to his style, brutally pounding his opponent into submission with animalistic strikes and stomps. He only gets scarier with the knowledge that his wild exterior and mannerisms hide an underlying genius and a serious cruel streak. He also twitches erratically and stutters his speech. Almost everything about him is completely unknown, except that he seeks out fights to the death. However, unlike Akuma's cynical yet noble competitive mindset, Necalli does so out of a sadistic "hunger" for strong souls. His alias, "The Soul Consuming Darkness" now makes almost literal sense.
** His win quotes against Chun-Li and Ibuki are [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything particularly disturbing.]]
--> (''Vs. Chun-Li'') "Don't st... struggle. There is no escape from me."
--> (''Vs. Ibuki'') "Do not wa... wail so. I will soon co... consume your fledgling soul."
** His win pose has him grab his defeated opponent and hold them up to the sky like Oni, but we [[NothingIsScarier never see]] what he does to them. [[https://youtube.com/watch?v=in7cUBA4Ego Necalli's story mode]] puts his win pose in an all-new light by showing just how he "consumes" his victims. He basically uses his clay body to swallow his victims whole [[Anime/DragonBallZ Majin Buu]] style. And his Story Mode has him do this to [[TheHero Ryu]], [[BadassGrandpa Dhalism]], and '''[[BigBad Bison!]]''' To make it worse, it's merely a prophecy, [[{{Foreshadowing}} a sign of dark things to come]]. Necalli is as mysterious as he is frightening.
** His teased reveal in Ken's V trailer was also frightening; you're watching Ken display his redesigned moveset and then comes the credits promoting the upcoming game... and then BAM, suddenly you're greeted with Necalli's face snarling at you all while giving you an ''intense'' DeathGlare. Quite an effective JumpScare and EstablishingCharacterMoment for Necalli.
** Remember Necalli's bio mentioning his ability to possess the bodies of animals? Turns out that it '''isn't''' an InformedAbility. The cinematic story mode has Charlie turning around to find a seemingly harmless sheep behind him. The "sheep" then shouts "Devour!" and ''melts'' into the visage of Necalli, who immediately attacks Charlie and attempts to devour him. Thankfully it's AllJustADream, but still...
** The Cinematic Story Mode throws on even more fuel to the fire. How is he able to get to his next prey so quickly, you ask? He melts into a puddle of black and red goo [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Angra Mainyu]] style.
* While he has always been an insane, murderous psychopath, Vega takes those traits and cranks them UpToEleven in V; whereas in ''IV'' his insanity was much more subdued in lieu of being condescending toward his opponents, in this game he [[LaughingMad laughs like a maniac]] after performing his Super, and makes [[WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises completely]] [[SlasherSmile dera]][[NightmareFace nged]] [[http://i.imgur.com/smdX11K.png facial]] [[http://i.imgur.com/xAQQXyJ.png expressions]] when his mask is knocked off, especially during his Super and win pose. His taunt also has him contemplating where he should start ''carving you''. Even his win quote dialogue, ''especially'' against female characters, is unsettling.
-->Against Chun-Li: ''Bathing in your blood will be the best beauty treatment of all!''
-->Against Cammy: ''Your delusions, your despair...They all belong to me now.''
-->Against Karin: ''[[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Your undefiled integrity is a fresh flavor for me to relish!]]''
-->Against Kolin: ''[[FlayingAlive I will carve you into something beautiful.]] I'll cut up that weak little heart of yours while I'm at it.''
* Another newcomer to the game is [[FunWithAcronyms F.A.N.G]], a Chinese assassin with the ability to manipulate poison who serves as Bison's [[MadScientist chief scientist]] and [[TheDragon right-hand man.]] In gameplay, he acts very silly with bizarre movements, weird winquotes and a hilarious Critical Art. In story, he's far more sinister, being a SocialDarwinist in the extreme sense. He's essentially a younger, more insane version of Gen before the latter TookALevelInKindness. The most disturbing thing about him is his UndyingLoyalty to Bison. Vega and Balrog only serve Bison for their own interests, but F.A.N.G displays a disturbingly fanatical loyalty to him, gleefully following his every order, such as reprogramming the Dolls to be stronger and more loyal to Bison.
** F.A.N.G's backstory is nightmarish as it is {{tearjerk|er}}ing. He was one of many children kidnapped by a cartel and forcibly exposed to various harmful poisons in order to learn how to kill using the "Poison Hands" technique. As the training induced a very high mortality rate, F.A.N.G grew up watching so many fellow students die at a young age that it turned him into a {{Determinator}} and SocialDarwinist bent on surviving at all costs. The only reason why he didn't die along with his fellow assassins when they tried to kill M. Bison is because he wanted to see another day.
** We also get a firsthand look at how dangerous the Poison Hand technique is. The cinematic story mode has F.A.N.G chasing a scientist that had betrayed Bison. The nonchalant way he chases her, causally skipping like a child, only adds to the creepiness of the scene. When he finally corners her, he impales her with his poisoned hand and the poison ''[[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath melts her away to nothing]]''. While the sight of that moment is awesome, it goes straight back into being creepy just a few seconds later when F.A.N.G proceeds to ''[[ImAHumanitarian eat her liquefied remains]]''. Even the staff at Capcom decided this was far too graphic for a T-rated game, so they censored it for the final release. [[spoiler: And then it turns out that the scientist was Rashid's missing friend.]]
** As if that wasn't scary enough, he also shows no hesitation in threatening to do the same thing to both Sean and Li-Fen [[WouldHurtAChild (who can't be older than 10-11 years old)]].
* Losing a match against [[AxCrazy Urien]], whose win pose has him ''[[BeatingADeadPlayer firing a Metallic Sphere at his fallen opponent, presumably killing them off-screen.]]''
* Akuma's Story costume. The Satsui no Hado appears to be exceeding the limits of his body, much like Bison's Psycho Power. In this case, it leaves actual physical signs like Oni's alternate costume in ''IV''. ''Akuma's skin has cracked and peeled away, leaving only the Satsui no Hado flowing within him to show itself.'' It's a very terrifying reminder that Akuma constantly lives on the edge of being consumed by the Satsui no Hado, and being transformed into the hellspawn that is Oni.
** Akuma defeats Necalli in his story mode only to be devoured by the latter. Then Necalli explodes, leaving only an unscathed Akuma.
* G brings all the mystery of Q, as well as all the creepiness. He looks very shady, has an alternate costume that's extremely similar to Q, and acts like a deranged cult leader, constantly preaching about unity and the power of the Earth, He also does not know the concept of the fourth wall, talking directly to the player in his demonstrations, waving towards an invisible crowd and gesturing towards the camera constantly, and if you're willing to suspend disbelief, crossing over into the real world and giving a speech at EVO 2018.
* In Sagat's story, everything is normal, including a MirrorMatch with Sagat vs. Sagat. But then, [[spoiler:Sagat suddenly clutches his chest. He then expresses his horror; Sagat is experiencing the Satsui no Hado. Sagat is still suffering from the effects even when Namupun arrives. Sagat doesn't give in to the Satsui no Hado, as he refuses to accept it, but it is still dark regardless. His Arcade Mode ending is even worse. He either awakens or returns to find his village set ablaze by a group of masked thugs. He brutally attacks them, and the last shot is him crying TearsOfBlood, indicating that he perhaps did give in to the Satsui no Hado. What's more, the credits list "Evil Sagat" as a separate character, meaning this subplot may not be over yet.]]

Then there's the PowerGem pulsating on his forehead. Maybe it's there to make him stronger (since it does seem to give him amazing abilities) but it could also be there simply as his only real means of life support.
** The things he does to his opponents are not very comforting either. While it's not explicitly shown, Charlie's attack on Chun-Li in his gameplay trailer has him ambushing her unawares and and all we see after that is the screen going black as Chun-Li screams in terror. Just the thought of imagining of what is being done to Chun-Li at that moment invokes massive NothingIsScarier. In terms of story, Charlie's transformation from the patriotic beacon of justice in the Alpha series to the murderous horror in Street Fighter V is pretty much NightmareFuel on its own; to be specific, [[FridgeHorror imagine how Charlie's friends (who all thought he's dead for years) would react if they saw him actually alive and well, only to find that he's nothing like the person they used to remember him as]].

!!''Street Fighter II: The Animation''
* This movie introduced the idea of Bison being a murderous ImplacableMan that ''nothing'' can harm unless he deliberately handicaps himself, and even when he's defeated it doesn't finish him off.

!!''Street Fighter II V''
* Bison strangles Nash, Guile's friend, to death with his own bare hands, then brainwashes Ryu and Chun-Li to fight their friends.
* Vega kisses Chun-Li in her sleep and gives her a LovePotion that will ensure she only has eyes for him. When Ken realizes this and goes to fight him, Vega utterly dominates most of the battle, impaling and breaking both of his feet and clawing at Ken until he's barely conscious from blood loss.

First mentioned in Street Fighter Alpha II, UDON's interpretation shows what happened in its full graphical detail, with every panel detailing everything from Sagat's loss of his eye, to the ''brutal'' NoHoldsBarredBeatDown Sagat dishes out in retaliation.


* M. Bison's ending in the original ''Super Street Fighter II'' is rather infamous for terrifying kids back in the day. The ending image depicts Bison's visage gleefully overlooking a burning city, wreathed in blue flames. The burning city isn't the thing that gets your attention though. It's Bison himself, who looks like a fucking demon straight out of Hel', with RedEyesTakeWarning and the very first instance of his signature SlasherSmile within the games. Then, as the image pans down to reveal said burning city, he opens his mouth wide as though he's engaging in LaughingMad.
