Anything that could swallow you whole in video games. Ugh. Nightmare fuel.

Also, when I was really little, the MGM lion.

Seeing the commercial for Child's Play with Chucky holding a knife. I had to leave my toys in my parents' closet for like a week.
Like Likes are definitely up there.

Beetoms - the fast-jumping things from Super Metroid, which latch onto you:

Nothing like those to cause a panic.
I muttered 'light as a board, stiff as a feather' for 2 days straight and now I've ascended, ;aughing at olympus and zeus is crying

Like, people talk about being scared of Phanto in SMB2. Imagine if Phanto looked like that. Would anyone have made it past world two?
Oh yes! How could I forget Phanto? Part of the reason I was afraid to play SMB2 as a kid was because of Phanto.

Man, there were some sections of Metroid Prime that messed me up. When the lights go out and the Space Pirates are coming at you in the dark? Still gives me the heebie-jeebies.
