500 Scary Scenes from ALL Video Games

25 pages times 20 posts equals 500 scenes from non-horror video games that are spooky, creepy, frightening, shocking, surprising, disturbing, unnerving, freaky, or in any other sense scary. They may range from mild scares to full-blown terror, as long as they are found within any game that is otherwise child- or teen-appropriate. Please limit yourself to one scene per post, and try not to duplicate previous posts in the thread.

1. Rambi Rumble (Donkey Kong Country 2) The majority of this stage plays like a typical hive level. That is, until you approach the end, and the music suddenly becomes frantic and you find yourself being pursued by a giant, invincible Zinger.

It's an interesting lead-in to the area boss, but can be quite frightening and unexpected the first time you encounter it.

2. The Private Oasis Secret Cave (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker) There is absolutely nothing wrong with this island except for one room, which forces you to drop into a Redead's scream range with no warning* whatsoever. Elephant screams after an innocent drop are a very unwelcome jump scare.

(*There may have been some kind of sound warning that I missed because my volume was low. If so, make this entry and WW Redead's freaky faces or something)

3. Big Boo's Haunt - Mad Piano (Super Mario 64) - Slightly creepy place but there is one area where the end all jump scares awaits.

4. Snacker (Banjo-Kazooie)

Image

Nigh-invulnerable, appears out of nowhere, swims much faster than you, Jaws music.

5. Giygas (Earthbound)

It hurts, Ness… …I’m h…a…p…p…y… …friends… …It hurts, …it hurts… Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness….. …go… b… a… c…k… …Ness… I feel… g… o… o… d… …I’m so sad… …..Ness!

6. Milla's Nightmare Room (Psychonauts)

Image

Tucked away in a secret corner of Milla's Dance Party (a brightly-coloured, upbeat level) is a portal to an eerie red room filled with caged demons who whisper constantly, asking Milla why she didn't save them and saying 'the fire burns' (her backstory has her running an orphanage that caught fire while she was away-----she returned in time to see the place burn down, but not to save her wards, and being psychic, she felt them all dying). Pretty messed.

7. Angry Sun (Super Mario Bros. 3)

Image

When Val was little, he would waste a P-Wing to clear this level without having to deal with the Sun. He's a lot less intimidating when you realize you can kill him with a Koopa shell, but as a child he's quite scary.

8. The Ghost Ship (Okami)

Image

A partially submerged ship loaded with disembodied floating heads of bosses, creepy dolls, giant underwater zombie hands, and piles of skulls guarded by a crab-shark hybrid.

9. Shadow Temple (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

Image
It took me a long time to get through this place as a kid, mostly because of the horrible decor of skulls and creepy noises around the corner, accompanied by the strange ambient music.

10. Crocomire (Super Metroid)

Image

The boss itself isn't that scary, but its agonizingly drawn out death and reemergence as a flesh-stripped skeleton is.

Putting this one in spoilers because it it's unavoidably related to the late-game story. (for Cave Story)
[spoiler]
11. The Undead Core, Sue, and Misery (Cave Story)

Image Image Image

Well, look at it. Doesn't help that newly-terrifying transformed versions of Sue and Misery are possessed to fight you against their will.

12. Shocking Badass Skag (Borderlands)

Image

Few things are scarier than this thing speeding into your face.

13. Thaddius. (World of Warcraft.)

[MEDIA=youtube]bn4GYI8S3dU[/MEDIA]

From the wiki...

"Thaddius, built from the flesh of women and children, it is said that their souls are fused together - eternally bound within that foul prison of flesh."

Throughout the raid, you hear those voices shouting out - and after you kill Thaddius, you will notice that you no longer hear those voices anymore. Doesnt' take a genius to figure out what they were....

14. Shark Chomp (Yoshi's Island)

Image

Another giant, indestructable enemy that chases you at high speed. Still feel bad for it when it chips its teeth, though.

Image

20. The Headless (Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss)

Image

Aside from their ghoulish appearance, the Headless are found wandering within a poorly-lit labyrinth and are quite tough when you first encounter them.
