* Star Door 15, "Paradise". Being [[spoiler:[[CreepyChild Renne]]'s backstory before joining Ouroboros]], it's a terrifying moment filled with copious amounts of AdultFear. Simply put, [[spoiler: Renne was part of a luxurous ''children prostitution ring'', used by rich, higher-class people. This is already awful on its own, but what makes that scene so scary is Renne's point of view: At first, she seems to talk with a few fellow children at Paradise. She's apparently not doing any, ahem, "work" while the other kids are giving her tips about ways to satisfy their customers: "Always seem like you're happy while doing it" "Think about what the customer wants and how to makes it feel good", and the like. However, little by little, the children mysteriously disappear: It goes on until there's only one left, who lashes out on Renne, screaming that it's all her fault and that she deserves it. Finally, he disappears as well, leaving Renne as the only child left. As she's about to get to work, it's revealed that all the other children saw by Renne were actually ''delusions of her own mind'' that she used to deny the reality and keep her mentally sane. The worst part is, [[RealityInTelevision that's actually a common symptom with victims of abuse.]] When Loewe and Joshua burn down Paradise, they find Renne, naked and her body full of scars, and decide to save her.]] "Paradise" is such a shocking moment in the Kiseki's franchise that not only has it been heavily censored on the PSP and Vita versions, but "Paradise" has become an UnusualEuphemism in the fandom for horribly bleak and dark moments.

* The end of FC's Chapter 1 has Don Capua, who's the first indication that this game isn't as saccharine as it seems. While [[spoiler: Josette]] and Kyle Capua, his underlings and children, were almost [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Jessie and James]] levels of goofy, non-threatening criminals, you first meet Don when you walk in on him planning to kill ''all'' the hostages from an airliner because [[HeKnowsTooMuch they know too much]], and he proceeds to go AxCrazy on your party, complete with [[UncannyValley a disturbing gritted teeth portrait]] and hunting metaphors. This is the first time in the game a villain has threatened you with death, a stark contrast to the lightheartedness of everything before. Possibly making this worse is that [[spoiler: he's BrainwashedAndCrazy, and genuinely doesn't remember any of this after you beat it out of him. Imagine if he ''had'' killed someone, only to wake up and not remember doing it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The DissonantSerenity as [[spoiler:Joshua]] describes [[spoiler:a child]] committing horrible acts of murder day after day, treating the whole thing like a child's fairy tale.


* The [[spoiler:The Salt Pale incident, which is revealed to the player in the 3rd. Basically, a giant tower of salt appeared out of nowhere on the state of Ambria, turning [[ApocalypseHow HALF]] of the country into a sea of salt. If that's no terrifying enough, the text implies the damn thing would, eventually, cover [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt all of Zemuria]] if it weren't for the fact that there is a giant river between it and the rest of the continent]]

Added DiffLines:

* While Bleublanc is normally too [[LargeHam hammy]] to be scary, he can be pretty terrifying when he wants to be, and some of his actions have disturbing implications, such as his IHaveYouNowMyPretty attitude towards Kloe. The report on him in one of The Third's Star Doors also contains some creepy elements, such as noting that one of the "unappreciated treasures" he once stole was the TrophyWife of a famous general. While it initially seemed like he had good intentions, rescuing her from an abusive marriage, the report then notes that ''[[FridgeHorror she was never seen or heard from again.]]''


* Weissmann's S-Craft, Another Dimension. It looks more like something from a horror game than a JRPG: it has the party falling into a blood-red sea of faces, grabbed by bloody hands, then impaled on bloody spears.

Added DiffLines:

* The moment when Kevin's backstory is fully revealed. Firstly, [[spoiler: ''his own mother went insane and tried to commit murder-suicide with him'']]. This is easily one of the greatest moments of AdultFear in the series. Nothing fantastical involved here, no DemonicPossession, just a normal human pushed to the edge. We even see [[spoiler: a still image of her, faceless, with a SlasherSmile, moving in to strangle Kevin]]. After ''that'' we find out what really happened with Rufina. [[spoiler: When Kevin's orphanage was attacked by Jaegers, one of them kidnapped Ries and Kevin chased them to a sealed room housing an ArtifactOfDoom. The Jaeger touched it and transformed into a horrible monster, but Kevin's Stiga triggered and absorbed the artifact's power, shooting out a barrage of spears. We don't see it, but according to Kevin's narration, [[NotEnoughToBury what little was left was barely recognizable, just chunks of flesh splattered across the room.]] And Kevin was still in a state of uncontrollable bloodlust and was poised to attack Ries. So Rufina [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed herself.]] We get another artwork, this time of Rufina impaled on several spears, blood smeared across the floor.]] No wonder Kevin is so messed up after all that. ''[[HarsherInHindsight You will never see Kevin's second S-Craft the same way again.]]''

* FC's laid-back pacing and cheerful tone work wonders to make the threats introduced in SC feel that much more realistic.

* The Hamel incident. An entire village was destroyed in a horrifyingly realistic depiction of RapePillageAndBurn, with the "rape" part not being an exaggeration. [[spoiler: Joshua]]'s description of what happened to him as he was fleeing is the worst part. HarmfulToMinors doesn't even begin to cover it. [[spoiler: As Joshua fled with his sister, they ran into a soldier, who attempted to sexually assault her. Without thinking, Joshua grabbed the soldier's gun and shot him ''in the throat''. And the soldier didn't even die instantly, he spent a few minutes sputtering and bleeding out, which the text [[{{Gorn}} lovingly describes]].
