Absolutely, it's just that there's also gotta be a standard even for kid's shows of what would be likely to scare someone based on the show itself. We're not saying these pages should go because nothing in them scares us, but that there are a lot of shoehorned examples meant to make the works seem edgier and "better" than they actually are- which is silly logic at best.
Basically, we don't assume every person watching the show is...well, us, but we also can't assume everyone watching the show would faint at the site of a spider.
About that Hamtaro page, the YouTube comments on the Boo Manor music have a lot of people claiming that they found the level scary, so maybe we could keep that example on the YMMV page. But since people seem to agree that the rest is very weak, I'm putting the page on the Cut List.
Does anyone have an opinion on the Nightmare Fuel pages I brought up on the previous page?
Can someone see if we can rewrite the "Revolution 9" entry on NightmareFuel.The Beatles? I found it during cleanup for Yoko Oh No (now prohibits RL examples plus is restricted to in-universe examples), and the excessive indentation problems are an eyesore.

I'm not sure if it is okay to axe NightmareFuel.DarkForces. Not only the examples are directly copied straight from the main trope page, but I don't think two examples are enough to make up the whole NF page.
Do Toys count as works? or is there something about them that would be troping real life? I'm going to clean up some of NightmareFuel.Other, but I may need help with identifying which examples to erase.

Damages was cut for the same reason: I donít see why not.
Since So Bad, It's Horrible has an entire subpage for toys, I'm inclined to say that they count as works and thus NRLEP doesn't apply to them.note I'm aware that SBIH isn't NRLEP like Nightmare Fuel, but it is Flame Bait, unlike Nightmare Fuel. That said, maybe we should get more input on this.

On TV Tropes, toys are treated as works. We give them pages with tropes and audience reactions that wouldn't be allowed for real life subjects such as creators. I don't see the issue with giving them Nightmare Fuel examples on top of that.
You know who else gets nightmares from Regular Show?
Season 8 (Regular Show In Space)

The Image Pickin' forums will help with the image.
But dear god, there are so many wrong examples.
The "It's Time" example has Fridge Horror which would have to be removed if the rest of the example was kept.
And about those bold sentences saying "This isn't real life," those examples mentioning how theyd happen in real life are useful (if irrelevant) addendums.
I cleaned up Arthur. Hmm, I could've sworn that LittleBigPlanet had a page. Did we cut it already?
Does anybody want to start cut listing Twitch Plays Pokemon?
I cutlisted all the pages. It wasnít easy or fun, but I did it.
Ooh, yeah! It's your basic, average show, Bad examples gotta go You can't stop me fixin' Kim Pos-Si-Ble There's nothing I won't clean And when duty calls Just know the show is not scary!
There's no reason for these shoehorns They are even featured on Kim Possible
Yeah, as you can see, it's not a great page...

I'll give a counter-argument on Twitch Plays Pokémon; because of the nature of TPP, the fanon is "part of the work".
(The work as presented onscreen is just a single run of Pokémon, but it became tropeable because of the fanon surrounding it.)
That doesnít excuse the zero context examples and not-scary stuff, though.
That's what I was trying to say earlier. NightmareFuel.Dragon Ball Z (as I brought up three pages ago) and NightmareFuel.Chuggaaconroy still need cleanup.
I agree with the Kim Possible analysis, except I'd say to maybe keep the bones breaking example. It sounds scary.
I could probably do Chuggaaconroy given I'm a huge fan of his and watched most of his projects from Okami onward. A lot of it is often mitigated by silliness afterwards. Like the whole "Shari is a serial killer" thing. The fact that she ends up being the villager he's closest with for both his birthday and Valentine's Day, hilarious.

The Nightmare Fuel page for Thomas the Tank Engine might also need to be checked over. The Other/Meta section in particular has several examples that might be better suited for Fridge Horror instead, especially the example about the real life Lindal Railway Incident. I just deleted one example that was an obvious ZCE about the theme song (because it didn't say what was scary about it) but I wanted to ask about the page in general here.
I'd like to take a look at a few examples from NightmareFuel.Steven Universe The Movie:

Didn't it just get released?
Came across NightmareFuel.Vampire Reviews. I mean, seriously?
One entry is a comedy bit where Maven tries to stake Lindsay while drunk, the other is a question if anyone was freaked out by how The Nostalgia Critic was looking at a box of Count Chocula.

How well does it match the trope?
