* Trico eating the Boy when hypnotized by the Ancient Relics. It's shocking to think that this creature that you befriended could turn on you so suddenly. [[spoiler:Taken UpToEleven when you watch the flashback, where Trico kidnaps the boy in the middle of the night and the other children and an old woman (presumably their caretaker) wake up to the sight of seeing ''nothing but his legs dangling out of the creature's mouth''. They're afraid just seeing Trico at first, but then their cries become more panicked when the boy is swallowed completely, apparently having just been EatenAlive]].

* The Master of the Valley. [[spoiler:An ancient EldritchAbomination that takes the form of a sphere of black goo with bright green patterns on its surface. Stay near it too long, and it starts ''bombarding'' you with glyph control spells.

* At one point in the game the companions enter a water level where they have to dive through some tunnels. When diving through the second tunnel, it takes such a long time to swim through that the boy can't hold his breath anymore and unwillingly lets go of Trico who doesn't notice and keeps swimming till it disappears out of sight. Luckily the boy floats to a crack in the tunnel's ceiling and wakes up in a cave, but what if the conveniently placed crack hadn't been there? The boy would have surely drowned in that tunnel and Trico would have emerged on the other side without the boy, not knowing it just caused him to die.
