Nightmare Fuel / Brave New World

Go To

The Huxley novel

  • For John, the hundreds of human clones who he describes as "long rows of identical midgets" and "human maggots squirming over beds of death."
  • For many readers, the idea of being born and pre-programmed on an assembly line, possibly waiting to be made mentally handicapped, and being forced into a caste position for the rest of your life. And nobody is going to mourn you after you die.

The Pokemon Mystery Dungeon fanfic

  • Chobin and Prof. Tarantulas ARE this trope.
  • Almost the ENTIRETY of the Tree of Life saga, and any scene in the Nihilators base, especially in Tarantulas' lab.
  • What the Nihilators do to torture Dawn. The heroes don't even see any of it when she has to relive the experience in her mind.
  • James's death at the hands of Leviathan. Made worse because being immortal let him live through being gibbed by the final attack.
  • How Bellum's group decorates the tracks of Dusty Ditch.
    • Which is one upped by Oblivion's Shadow's display in Chapter 61
  • Ash's nightmare in Chapter 54. Good lord. Word of God states it was inspired by Dead Space 2
  • Oblivion's Shadow proves he's NOT screwing around during his display in Chapter 61. He highlights that by ripping out a hapless Pokemon's Aura. It's not pleasant.
