Nightmare Fuel / Kuroko no Basuke

Go To

Keep in mind that nightmare fuel for this show is relative; it is a sports anime, after all. Nobody's getting murdered. Probably.

  • Murasakibara. His expressions and his attitude are both... unsettling.
  • Kuroko isn't Nightmare Fuel incarnate, yet since you usually see him in a very calm and inexpressive mood, it's very unnerving to watch when he actually becomes angry. It's Tranquil Fury at its most terrifying.

  • Akashi. Everything about Akashi. Memorably the scissor scene, where he was straight up intending to take a chunk out of Kagami — and would've succeeded if not for Kagami's reflexes. So much for nobody getting murdered.
  • Hanamiya "Bad Boy" Makoto gets at least an honorable mention, as Hope Crusher extraordinaire. He puts Kiyoshi out of commission once and is no less ruthless during their next match.

How well does it match the trope?
