Top Ten Scariest Things Ever

The Top Ten

1 Being Buried Alive

This or drowning or suffocating, even though I guess being buried alive IS suffocating. - Swiftdawn

Ill never get the image out of my head...

It's my worst fear ever

I'm quite claustrophobic so being disabled from moving would be the most uncomfortable feeling for me.

2 Fear

"What you fear most of all, is fear itself" which is (according to Professor Lupin), very wise. - irenesaxby

The Good Thing? Fear Fears people who don't Fear.
Now the word Fear seems strange.

Everything scary is fear, so pretty much the only thing to fear is fear itself because every scary thing is fearful, so the only thing to fear is fear itself. - MarioMaster101

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"

3 Being Stranded in the Open Ocean

This is one of the most horrifying things I can imagine. It's slow and hopeless. You're in a life raft watching your supplies decline and waiting for someone to save you when each day your doubt increases that it will ever come. It's worse than instant death because you have time to think about all the people you never said goodbye to, and that is the most horrible thing I could wish on anyone.

This is my ultimate fear, especially if it is an endless ocean, and there are giant squids or something everywhere! - Mnsdjjfijf

This would suck, what if you drowned?!

What's in the deep abyss below you? what happens when you get tired of swimming? what if something gets you? what if you never find society? what if you have to live off islands for the rest of your life if you do find land? SCARY!

4 Lost In Space

Come on man! this has to be no. 1! you would freeze and pass out in 15 seconds or you would be fried and cooked if you got too close to a star

How are you gonna get lost in space if your on earth?

Tony and Nebula lost in space for 21 days without much food, water or oxygen. No imagine that but with you and someone who you don’t really know that well. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

How will you get oxygen! come on people this has to be 1 or 2!

5 Drowning

So more dangerous than Justin beiber

Get this above Justin Bieber

Ben drowned hehe

Only for black people

6 The Unknown

Well we are 7.7 billion people stranded on a planet working on a huge project trying to map out the entire universe and... who knows


We never know what will kill us

The only reason we fear ghosts is because we don't know what they are. Same with UFOs.

7 Slenderman

I think slenderman is stupid


I personally do not think it would be scary, because I am a fan of Slenderman. So, actually to me it wouldn't be that scary.

Pfft, yall ain't seen anything. slenderman probably ain't real since it was made for a creepypasta but don't mess with the occult, there is freaky stuff out there. also, I used to stay in the neighborhood woods a lot as a kid, same with some others, and we'd see and hear freaky stuff over the span of a few years. and, I used to be a hobo because I was poor asf and lived on a bike with a tarp and a tub of food and water. thank God I don't do that anymore.

8 Burning Alive

Imagine being stuck in a boiling pot of water. This is what this would feel like... oof

I would pick this one because its painful

That's scary

When I touch hot drink it hurt, I don't want to know how it feels - Zalgiris

9 Clowns

This site is full of them - purpleyoshi98

These things scare me like crap. I can't stand them.

When my sis was 5 years old she kicked one in the nuts. - RoseWeasley

I never found them scary. I just don't like them because they're annoying - SirSheep

10 Plane Crashes

9/11 in a nutshell ;-; - Ummmmmm

This is literally my worst fear. If I survive, losing my family and my possessions. Also, a water landing on the ocean. I'll take the bus, thanks.


They're rare though. I'm more scared of a car crash occuring out of the blue - SirSheep


The Newcomers

? Peta Extremists
? Psa Videos

The Contenders

11 Zombies

Well everyone grows up to be zombies, you know, those adults walking to work in the morning...

They ugly mofos
I pissed my pants

They don't exist - ElSherlock

I'm a zombie, though. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

12 Hell

Come on. This has to be number 1. It's endless torture and pain. What's worse than that?

Well, what's worse is endless torture, pain, and having no idea what's going on. - MaxAurelius

Endless pain, fire, and torture seems pretty scary to me.

There is no such thing as hell. Unless- You want to see it? - Ummmmmm

Scarier than Justin bieber

13 Death

Well death is a either a pointless thing of fear where you get born again or you end and you can't read this comment

I'm not scared of it. No one should be. We all know it will happen - Ummmmmm

Death is death. RIP

I don't want to die.

14 Nuclear Warfare/Fallout

Knowing that my city has a major air force base

War never changes... - Unknowngamer

We are all going to die

Its barbaric and it cannot happen.

15 Creepypasta

There NOT exactly SCARY but they are entertaining to read in my option. - NickDavidson199

Nah - CrypticMemory

They aren't scary - ElSherlock

Not scary not cliched. - XxembermasterxX

16 Snakes Snakes Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.

All they just suck! - RW700

Snakes aren't really scary unless your in a situation where your face to face with a poisonous snake that is threatened by you and you missed their warning sign. As far as visually scary I would say spiders are more creepy.
There very cool especially the many non-poisonous kinds - germshep24

I love snakes - Murphypaw

I think snakes are kind of cute honestly - myusernameisthis

17 Nightmares

I actually enjoy nightmares it is kind of like a horror movie that you're the star of, but then again it depends on the nightmare: for instance if you had a dream about a love one dying that would really be terrible or if you have one of those waking dreams where you are a wake put can't move your body while a bunch of weird things happen around you (which I am so happy I haven't experienced). - germshep24

Another night I saw that I was standing in my room near the window. I was combing my hair my mom to was there she was standing behind me &was talking to me about something. Suddenly her facial expression changed like she was really upset or scared, she was looking @the window very stunned. &then when I asked what happened to her she told it was nothing while saying this she was sweating &then she slowly started moving backwards &when I looked in to the window I saw a black skull Iike thing, & then suddenly I was no able to move I fell on the bed but my mom was still standing there staring @me &when my uncle ran towards she stopped him & sad don't go & then both of them were staring at me I was not able to move it was like someone is controlling me but there was a photo of Jesus on my shelf so I tried my best to stretch my hands towards that photo but something was preventing me from touching it, Istretched my hands with great force and @last when I touched that photo I felt like ...more

Lol I haven't had nightmares for about 3 years

Night terrors are much worse. Watched Shane Dawson's video about that, awful, just awful. Addicted 2 him, need 2 watch him. - Joshuaisdotdotdot

18 Tornadoes

Good I live in England. 1 metre of the ground and I'm DEAD.

Thanks god I live in Brazil - JustSomeRandomDude

I live in Minnesota, and we get a lot of thunderstorms around here. And I'm always afraid that they'll lead to a tornado - FuffleyandPeetah

Not scary - Camaro6

19 Jeff the Killer Jeff the Killer Jeff the Killer is a creepypasta usually accompanied by a picture of a white face looking in to the camera smiling in an unsettling manner. The creepypasta is also usually accompanied by the term "Go to sleep".

Just looks like a guy in jeans and a hoodie with a bunch of makeup on. - InfinateSuperstorm

He looks like a drunk gremlin with no conscience - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

lol no - CrypticMemory

He gives me night mares

20 Pop Ups

Remember the car commercial? If you know what I'm talking about, you survived a heart attack

One of the scariest things since darkness. Most people get scared $&@: less from these loud, sudden blast of fear.

Do you like the Red Room? - RedTheGremlin

Dude! Help me! Sara is missing!
Edit: Its just a joke! I know its from that game Sara is missing! - Gabo147

These things need to die and be forgotten about forever. Besides people are getting sick of them anyway.

21 Terrorism Terrorism

This is the most scariest cause any time and any day there is going to be a atack.


Sooo sad. I’m glad it’s over!

Did anybody like it! huh huh huh huh huh

22 Spiders

Yes, they are harmless, but they look scarier than any other thing in the world. They look like they are going to jump off the wall and tickle you, especially the really skinny long legged ones.

I think that this should be number 1 because of big fat crybabies that think that spiders are the scariest thing ever. Those people should just ignore them and shut their faces. - DrayTopTens

These things aren't scary just like snakes - ElSherlock

hahaha its weird to see spiders and being buried alive the first 2, because the scariest things I have thought of is being buried alive with a dozen of the creepiest spiders on earth... anyway, I choose spiders because of my arachnophobia, stranded in an ocean is hella scary 2...

23 A Human With One Eye But No Eyepatch

Reminds me of the "governor" from the Walking Dead AMC Series...

Reminds me of Kenny from twd season 1 and 2 - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

*kills hershal*

24 Being Attacked
25 Naked People

No scary but nasty - Jabber

I don't want to see a man naked because it is gross - andrewteel

What - ElSherlock

My friend got robbed by a naked man and when the man tried to leave he couldn’t resist to roll in the grass lol - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

26 Disease

Spanish flu, swine flu, cancers, Black Death, mad cow disease, flu, small pox, measles and A LOT MORE - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX


Cancer - AwesomeJawson

Diseases are probably the scariest things in the world. Some can't be cured, even with today's modern medicine. Plus, you'd be getting killed (and it's a very slow and painful death) by something you can't see. I am afraid of death, but death from a deadly virus is even worse. - ethanmeinster

27 Elf On the Shelf

It's just so creepy!

One time I found my elf hanging by a string that popped out near the wiener lololol - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

It's really creepy! - myusernameisthis

A elf was at my house...
It hung itself by the leg...
I caught it...
And it is the creepiest thing I say!

28 Bees Bees

They are horrifying - CrypticMemory

I wanted to vote for Insects in general, but I couldn't find it. I guess I'll have to vote for the scariest insect of all.

One time, when I was little, I was petting a bee and it stung me on the hand and my hand had big brown spots all over it.

I'm kind of scared

29 Getting Lost In Space

Whoever puts on this list, and This was already on this list. - LapisBob

30 Seeing a Close Family Member Die Slowly and Painfully

My mum started choking on a almond and almost died. It is way more depressing then it sounds, watching someone die or almost die and the only thing you can do is call 000! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

And Trump is scarier than this? - Userguy44

I lost a family member once... He choked on a bone. His owner told my mom that he didn't make it. I almost cried. He was the best dog I've ever had. RIP, BENSON! - FuffleyandPeetah

My heart sank. My dog, she was there before I was born. She is dying slowly and painfully we may have to put her to sleep. I feel like crying. I know she isn't a person but truthfully I love her more than my brother.

Please don't die now Ellie! My beautiful black lab mix!

I feel the same. My dog died because of eating disorder and old age. He was more older, When they need the name, We call him Patrick (influenced by Patrick Star) He was so happy. - Princesssmooth

31 Dolls

Annabelle is cute

The fear of dolls - ElSherlock


I'm hungry

32 A Perve Watching You

Lock them up in a locker for 2 days, throw them out, shoot them in both legs and arms and then decapitate them... THE MOST GRUESOME WAY TO KILL ONE OF THOSE IDIOTS. THEIR FAMILY IS A CACTUS because THEY ARE ALL PRICKS LOL (I got the joke part from another list lol) - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

If it's a boy, kick his crotch.
If it's a girl, punch her boobs. - RoseWeasley

Flip em off and walk away. If they keep watching walk up to them, raise your eyebrows and kick em in the crotch (boys in particular) - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

Murder them.

35 Guns

If you gave me an rpg and c4 I would detonate every single bad person (including satanists) - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

I was afraid of my dad's gun - andrewteel

Well... I'm an animal lover so I can say I don't like guns to be shot at them... or people but my dad has like 5 huge guns set behind the door of the guest room...

If you gave me a gun and put me in a room full of rapists, I would become a mass murderer within 5 seconds.

39 Violin Girl (Courage the Cowardly Dog)
40 Darkness

You can't see in the dark- how do you know what is going to come creeping out towards you? That's just creepy.

How could you not be afraid of pitch-black dark? If your just standing around, while fear surrounds you! Unexpected things could happen

If your in the dark, you don't know who'se watching you. Or who might be secretly creeping up on you so they could kill you when you least expect it. Many famous people back in the 1700s were afraid of the dark.

Thank god this is on the list. I fear the dark. Who else can't sleep in the dark? Or just be in the dark?

41 Scary Maze Game

The face is just a girl that looked like she rolled in mud and is trying her best to smile

Its loud

This game scarred me for life. At the end of level 3, the scariest face ever pops out at you unexpectedly. SO SCARY

I accidentally played this game with my sister last year and we lost and got freaked out so much! In fact, didn't touch a computer after that for weeks! I even play video games and watch YouTube video with muted sound! Yikes!

42 Osama bin Laden Osama bin Laden Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was a Saudi Arabian-born stateless terrorist. He was a founder of al-Qaeda, the organization that claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on the United States, along with numerous other mass-casualty attacks against civilian and military targets worldwide. more.

He looks like a chimpanzee made out of horse crap mushed together and someone made a beard out of more feces - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

More like osama buttbin feces - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

More like Osama bin butthead

He is dead - ElSherlock

43 Falling

The Alicia Keys classic? It's awesome! - RobertWisdom

Oh, you mean me 24/7?

44 Daniel Radcliffe With Long Hair

Just don't.

45 Freddy Krueger Freddy Krueger Fred "Freddy" Krueger is the main antagonist of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. He first appeared in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).

I will kick his balls

Freddy is the best horror movie slasher there is - Copenhagen

When I was kid, he came in my dreams a lot, I'd go to sleep, I'd dream, wake up scared, fall back to sleep and be back dreaming of him again, I was only 6 years old.

I love Freddy. He's awesome - RedTheGremlin

46 Insects
47 "The Scariest Picture On the Internet"

Also, Shane Dawson came up... - KingSlayer93316

Not scary but they are creepy

This is a real seeing I don't be crazy see google

48 Being Cheated On

It's very painful, and it's the reason why I don't have a boyfriend today, though I just thought it was because I am ugly. - RedTheGremlin

Not scary - just so very painful. I can honestly say that I could/would never put anyone through this agony. It's the worst feeling in the world, especially if you're prepared to commit and dedicate your life, body, heart and soul to that one person. The pain is so bad and lasts a very long time. - Britgirl

This is so true I lived through this experience 20 years ago and to this day still cannot truly trust

My crush Miguel cheated on me, but he still flirts to me. what

49 Living In a Haunted House

The Mario haunted houses are worse because not only are their ghosts, but also skeleton Koopa troopers, and bottomless pits to fall in and you have to platform to get around the house or you'll die by falling down one of those pits. - RobertWisdom

Only a proper one though, not one of those Boo houses you see in Mario.

Yeah that'll be scary. One day you and your family are doing whatever you do in your house and suddenly your sibling disappeared, so you searched for him/her and finally found him/her in a mysterious chamber, then you realized that s/he's possessed and kills you and your parents - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Wow cool, I love haunted houses and not Halloween haunted houses, one with a real ghost.

50 Tapeworms

Disgusting little freaks - RawIsgore

Tapeworms are just worms caught on tape. No need to worry. - TeamRocket747
