Nightmare Fuel / Sonic Shorts

Go To

  • Any of the shorts starring the Tails Doll. They're usually hidden within a short.

  • Another one in Sonic Shorts Volume 4. After clicking on Tails Dolls (that Charmy Bee disguise) in the 15th shorts, a particularly scary short appears featuring Dr. Mario and Sonic: it involves post-operation Sonic in Dr. Mario's office. After comforting Sonic and mutters "You're one of us now", he then offers him a lollipop. The camera angle then reveals the operation was a lobotomy, and as Sonic struggles for the sucker, the respective logos of Sega and Nintendo appear, the latter ending the short.
  • In Sonic Shorts Volume 5, in one of the transitions between two shorts, you can see a faint image of Tails Doll, covered in blood and bearing sharp teeth. Clicking on this grants you the pleasure of seeing a dark alleyway with a flickering light as Tails Doll flashes in front of the camera. What's worse is that the shot looks like it was filmed from somebody's point of view...
  • Sonic Shorts Volume 6 has a Bubbles badnik after the credits. You can click on it to make it scream and release the spikes in its body, but the scary moment is the third time you click it, where it starts spewing blood as its spikes come out, giving a rather terrifying shriek as it fades away.

  • Subverted in Sonic Shorts Volume 7. Tails Doll looks like he's chasing Tails, trying to kill him. But, in actuality, Tails Doll was just trying to give Tails his ring back.
  • Knuckles Briefs introduced us to the Knuckles Doll, in a similar vein to the Volume 5 example.

How well does it match the trope?
