Top 10 Stupidest Phobias

The Top Ten

1 Anatidaephobia (the fear of somewhere, somehow a duck watching you)

The ducks are watching...

You never know man, a duck could be watching you right now. The chances of getting killed by a duck are low... but never zero.

Area 51 is actually space ducks that have taken over a house and the illuminate is also run by space ducks because what other plausible can you think of that gets donald trump into the white house

I...I was walking to the lake...I..I just wanted to go fishing...Bu-but there was a duck...what-watching me

2 Pentheraphobia (the fear of your mother-in-law)

Pretty much everyone is affraid of their mother-in-law. it's not their fault that they don't want to be eaten alive. ;D

That is completely normal in most people

Everyone is afraid of their mother-in-laws...

Hah. This is THE stupidest phobia known to man... Yet understandable

3 Chrometophobia (fear of money)

This is SO ironic considering the people who would do anything for money.

Seriously? Laugh out loud every people need money, and some people are willing to die just to have money.

How can that be true some one running away from money it might be though

I have a feeling that most of these phobias are fake and nonexistent

They're all exist, do some research first. Most of these are very, very rare. - GirlyAnimeLover

4 Cherophobia (the fear of happiness)

I mean, sometimes you just think "something bad is going to happen quickly"

I feel bad for the people who have this phobia

I like the saddness

Worst one... - GirlyAnimeLover

5 Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia (fear of long words)

The fear of long words, see the irony

My name is Adam, I'm 19, and I never f'ing learned how to read. Adam probably has this...

This phobia just wants to mess with people lmao...like damn why did the phobia have to be so long

Fear of Hippopotamus, Fear of Monsters, Fear of Equipping, Fear of Education, Fear of Phobias

You are going to live a sad, sad life.

6 Bananaphobia (the fear of bananas)

You can dodge bullets but not bananas? I thought you could sense that with your... Peter Tingle!

You better watch out there might be a BANANA!

Today is not a good day to be a minion

When you were suspended for pointing a banana at someone and pretending to be a school shooter. - SmolBean

7 Biophobia (fear of living things)

So like you're not scared of corpses, but you are scared of the little Girl Scout next door?

This has to be the stupidest one by far

Finally an excuse to kill people

Your scared of yourself? - GamerXS

8 Euphobia (fear of hearing good news)

Hillbilly type Republican when they hear Trump getting punished. - 0w0uwu

This is so stupid I would understand bad news but why a fear of GOOD news

People who have this must hate futurama "Good news everyone"

Have you ever heard the album "Good News For People who Like Bad News" by Modest Mouse. Great for people with this phobia. - Sepron64

9 Panphobia (the fear of everything)

This is highly unusual. I can imagine having panphobia/panophobia. Being scared of everything... Your house, your mom, the street, animals, food, water, light, dark, sleeping, your hands, going to the restroom, your clothes, paper, of yourself... Every single thing. How can you live through this?

I just voted so I could tell you that I'm scared of the "BAD ROBOT productions" logo. Not only that, I'm scared of that childish voice saying bad robot. If you google bad robot and look for videos, you might see why I'm scared. That's my number one phobia. It should be on this list. (If your scared I don't blame you)

Really?! Who has this?! And how can you live like this?! It's STUPID! So what do they do all day and how can they live?! Like really?! Can you even live like this?

Listen, people who have this might have an Anxiety Disorders, so please control your mouth. - GirlyAnimeLover

How do you survive? Frankly you should have a panic attack so bad it causes a heart attack, and if that doesn't happen there's a thousand other ways you can die (not breathing, not eating, not drinking, not sleeping etc)

10 Xanthophobia (fear of the color yellow)

Green lantern

I guess I kind of have this; a certain shade of bright yellow makes me feel sick (weird, I know). But to be scared of it? Really? That's just plain stupid

Be colorblind, thank me later

How insane would you have to be to fear yellow? - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Arachibutyrophobia (the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth)

for me, it's more of a pet peeve than a phobia

Never thought that people would actually be scared of this. Yes, it's annoying, but still - SirSheep

Yeah, this is stupid, (no offense to people who have this phobia) - Alpha101

Laugh out loud my friend just told me she has this phobia and ah loves peanut butter! Ironic!

12 Didaskaleinophobia (fear of school)

If you had this phobia diagnosed by a therapist, would you have to go to school?

I have a fear of school everyday. The teachers look like old hags

If I have this can I skip school

Best phobia ever

13 Deipnophobia (the fear of having a dinner conversation)

Hmm... I can see why this might have some bad connotations for people, lol!

You shouldn't be that scared having a conversation especially if you want friends

I think I have this, my parents always want to have a chat at dinner but I freak out and start being shy but this is weird cause Iā€™m an extrovert

Bet it would be hard to date someone like that. Also is it just dinner? What about breakfast and lunch? - Randomator

14 Triskaidekaphobia (the fear of the number 13)

I understand that it's a real fear, but its kinda confusing, why would someone be afraid of the number 13?

I had to spell this in a spelling test and I was 9

13 is an unlucky number lol - GirlyAnimeLover

This is stupid. - XX_Hydra-Virus-9860_XX

15 Phobophobia (fear of fear)

As soon as the slightest bit of fear hits you which is instantly it won't stop.

Once you get scared, you get stuck in an eternal paradox of fear.

You would be forever scared

So your scared you get scared again and again then you are scared your whole life

16 Paraskavedekatriaphobia (the fear of Friday the 13th)

It sucks though.

-My grandma's dog died that day
-The power always goes out or is close to
-There's always a thunderstorm
-Dad, please stop Jason Vorhees isn't coming to kill us
-Dad, neither is Michael Myers. - Atychi

This superstition has its origins in Christianity. On the last supper that was on Friday, there were 13 people on the table ( Jesus and his 12 apostles ). One of them was a traitor ( Judas ). That's why many people still believes that this day is a day of bad luck.

Only for superstitious people.

Only superstitious people have this fear

17 Ithyphallophobia (the fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis)

I have this, in get scared when I see my teacher looking thick as hell

If you're a man and you have this, then you're sick! I love getting erections! - XX_Hydra-Virus-9860_XX

I don't know what is wrong with men, even my ex-boyfriend hate having sexual stuff - GirlyAnimeLover

If a man has an erection, he usually loves it. I LOVE getting one.

Rip anyone who has this phobia and watches porn

18 Trypophobia (fear of holes)

Don't blame us... my friend has a really deep hole in her backyard and I hate it. - Atychi

OOOH. I have this and whenever I see irregular clusters of small holes I start to panic and I nearlt passed out one time

This isn't dumb, I have this. It sucks. I flinch whenever I walk by a average-sized hole. It's not like a tiny hole... unless it's deep."

I hate having, ot sucks so much! it is the worst! I can't do anything

19 Ambulophobia (the fear of walking)

Why walk when you can somersault? they see me rollin'

Welcome to Lazy Town kids

I will walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more. Lol - Randomator

Lazy people be like - TheMasterOfBaiting69

20 Pteronophobia (the fear of being tickled by feathers)

I love that it's specifically feathers, not just being tickled in general - SirSheep

I guess a lot of people don't like being tickled, but an actual phobia that's something else.

I'm scared of ANYTHING touching my neck. Literally, if I'm laying down on grass I have to get up because the grass touched my neck :/ probably because I'm insanely sensitive and get extremely aroused if anyone even strokes my neck. and people wonder why I wear a scarf inside - SansTheComic

Ill have fun touching these people with my handy dandy feather

21 Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia (fear of the number 666)

It's not stupid. 666 is meant to be "The number of the Devil" or as some people I remember used to call it "Hells area code" these names seem stupid but the fear is very real.

Whoever named this must have just smashed their keyboard. - Atychi

The number 666 is just a number there is no such thing as the mark of the beast get over it.

It's just a number

22 Medomalacuphobia (fear of losing an erection)

I have spent over $3,000 in Viagra in the past 8 months, I have had an erection for the past 8 months as well, I just take like 6 of them before I go to bed each night and I wake up each morning with my erection still there.

It's gotta go sometime!

This is stupid

Thicker peen is my best friend. I have no one

23 Agyrophobia (the fear of crossing the street)

This is actually so retarded, honestly this must be such a pain in the ass ngl

I used to have this because I always thought that I was going to be hit by a car - SirSheep

The duck does not have this

Why did the chicken cross the road? He didn't. I feel bad fer all of you guys who have this.

24 Emetophobia (the fear of vomit)

Yeah. It's scary.
"Mommy, there's a giant monster made of vomit in my closet!"
"No, dearie, that's just the dog."

I take offense to this-
I'm not really afraid of hearing vomiting or smelling it, but seeing it, especially it coming from my own mouth, freaks me out. When I feel nauseous, I make sure I don't vomit. - Atychi

I have this! I must not see it, smell it, hear sounds of it or similar to it, hear it being talked about, etc. When I feel nauseous, I literally act like a toddler again, crying hysterically, panicking, frantically asking my mom questions, wanting a parent with me for comfort, etc. It really is a miserable phobia to have, especially for someone like me who has severe anxiety.

Believe it or not, I have this phobia and so do three of my friends. Every time I'm ready to throw up, I feel like it's the end of the world. Thank goodness I hardly ever feel nauseated, or as medically defined, an unpleasant sensation in the abdomen. - RockFashionista

25 Homophobia (dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people)

It is a sin, but you could still be friends with them, and ignore the fact they are gay. - GamerXS

"Man shall not lie with man as with woman; it is an abomination." Leviticus 13:22
Translated into redneckenese: a man and a man shouldn't have feelings of love for each other like a man and a woman would. Same goes for a woman and a woman. It's a sin. But don't treat gays like scum or nothing. I have plenty of homosexual friends.

Religion is stupid. Just because some unknown man 2000 years ago said homosexuality was a sin doesn't mean It's bad. I'm going to respect a man, treat him well, love him, and make sure he lives the life he wants, not what you want. Homophobia are for kids, not grown adults brainwashed by this made up religion to distract you from dying and not existing. I respect people with religion, but that gives you NO right to try to change anyone's lives. That is injustice and Selfishness. We are loving, you are not. Have a good day. - 0w0uwu

So you hate me just because I like someone the same sex as me? Okayyy.. You don't even know me personally. Yes I know it is a sin, but the Bible says that you shouldn't judge anyone. Plus it's a hate crime. You just look at a gay person and decipher my entire like based on how you think I lived my life. But whatever dude. Have a blessed day.

It is not a "hate crime," hate crimes don't exist.

Also the title is wrong. People with prejudices are not included in homophobia, people just like to use the word in the wrong way. - ForthComestheTruth

For all u guys who think being homosexual is a sin, it's not. God just doesn't agree with the sexual intercouse - Lamp

26 Arachnophobia (fear of spiders)

What? I have it and I freak out at the sight of a spider and it sucks - Atychi

How is this a stupid phobia? It's the most common by far. I know a lot of people with this. No kidding, they jump at spiders the size of a microscopic ant anyone else can relate to me? Or am I stupid.

A creature that has 8 legs is scary!

It isn't stupid, I have this fear

27 Omphalophobia (fear of belly buttons)

I probably have this, I'm highkey afraid of my belly button, its basically a hole that leads to your guts. Like what if it rips...

I actually have that. Its not of belly buttons them selves but the fact of someone touching your belly button and stuf.____. I have it because of a video I saw of an ambilical coard being cut and got tromatised after that

Well then... What?

The fear of dirty belly buttons

28 Coulrophobia - (The fear of clowns)

My Aunt Casie is really scared of clowns for her birthday we brought clowns just for the fun of it XD

I don't have the fear of clowns- I have the fear of clowns that want to kill me

I have this phobia and its darn scary! I can't sleep at night because I think a clown is watching me and planning to take my soul!

I have this and personally my advice to other people who have this don't go to the circus and don't watch IT

29 Islamophobia (prejudice against Muslims)

I'm a Christian so I obviously disagree with some of their views but they are still people that deserve respect, and they might disagree with my views so I'm ok with that. And can people on this please stop being negative, ISIS and other terrorist groups claim to be Muslims when in reality they are not. they are radicals and idiots that are self-centered and only want to bring destruction. I know and am proudly friends with some Muslims and they are kind and loving people that deserve love and respect. We are all entitled to our own opinion but there are other ways to state opinions without being rude. and it's ok to disagree with people that the beautiful thing about the world we are living in but please try to be nicer to people and see their points of view. and I'm sorry if this offends anyone I'm really not trying to so if I did I'm sorry that was not my intent.
I also wrote this really quickly so sorry for the bad grammar misspellings and punctuation/capitalization

Legit like 0.000001% of Muslims are terrorists/ bad people. Most you will meet will not hurt you. - GamerXS

This is just awful. Seriously people WHATS WRONG WITH MUSLIMS?!

Jesus Christ! Why do people hate muslims? They're actually really nicepeople!

30 Ephebophobia (the fear of youths)

What if you're a kid and you have this

I FOR ONE HAVE THIS FEAR AND IT IS SCARY BECAUSE EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK THERE IS LITTLE KIDS RUNNING AROUN

The youth are so unpredictable... You never know what they come up with.

Laugh out loud seriously being afraid of children?

31 Judeophobia (the fear of jews)

I think that judeophobia and the statement they take my money and run away is stupid

I think Adolf Hitler had this.

This is what Hitler had

Cartman might have this too

32 Mageirocophobia (the fear of cooking)

This would be terrible I'd never make my shrimp scampi again if I had this and I still need practice.

Then you will either starve or eat so much fast food you have a heart attack

How can you eat? Unless you buy your food then you will be homeless on the street!

I am gonna starve then

33 Barophobia (fear of gravity)

,hkhsjsgdydyldgoyzgoGieyskgshmsykskgzgkskvsfszvsjcdbzykduktisyidyshkzgkxhkzhkzfzhmzkhztjzyzdnhsgnsyjwkgsgjafyksfakystkafGkstizngsgsysysgkzhatjsdgkLudupfgjsulxkydkhdmhhhzhmzkhxmhzhmzgnzgnzgjzzgkzgzyozigzkgzkzgkzgzkTkKzykzhlzkyd. Weird. _-_

"Gravity, who give a crap about gravity" "Scout"

Get a jet pack and ya good to go

Just imagine someone screaming every second every day

34 Anglophobia (fear of england)

I- is it the tea obsession? or the aggressive accent? Or is it more of a fear of monarchy?

It would suck to watch many animes or even have British decent then..

What is it their accent or is it the tea? - Randomator

Believe me this is true, I read about it in the science museum.

35 Thalassophobia (fear of the ocean)

I have thiss. Just imagine getting dropped in the middle of an unexplored part of the ocean, ANYTHING could just come out of nowhere and murder you! AND DROWNING OH MY- Drowning is terrifying.

To be honest, I'm only afraid because I went to the beach in California and I was five and my mum was with me when I went to far and nearly DROWNED! My mum saved me and since then I have only been a little scared.

To be afraid of the shore and were it is safe is very silly but if you think about it barely have of the ocean has been discovered yet so no one fully knows what is down there and there is also the known dangers like jellyfish and sharks

I have this fear, but it's not just the ocean.. it can be pools too, but just the ones where you can't see the bottom. (or maybe I'm just weird like that) I hate EVERYTHING that is unknown in the water. take some grass and put in underwater, and I refuse to touch it, even though I will walk barefoot on it if its out of water. it really sucks to be swimming with someone but you have to sit out because you're scared. its ironic because I love swimming

36 Spheksophobia (fear of wasps)

Heyy... if you get stung by one when you're four, you only imagine the agony which I exaggerated since I was young. My friends make fun of me for this and I actually have a panic attack and cry when a wasp is near me. - Atychi

! I literately cannot stand wasps and run away. No matter how hard I try, I can't sit down and waft them away. No matter how many people tell me it's more afraid of me and like how good they are for the environment. I'm just like "No they are evil creatures sent by te Devil from hell! "

I have this to a point where I almost pee my pants when I see one.

I kind of have this fear.

37 Aibohphobia (fear of palindromes)

What is a palindrome? - TheMasterOfBaiting69

1: Don't say a palindrome. I have a phobia of them.
2: So, you have aibohphobia? You do know that the word for the fear of palindromes IS a palindrome, right? *Smugly smiles*
1: *Cringes*

Took me a while to understand this

Ironic.
A palindrome defines the fear of a palindrome.
This is Extreme irony.

38 Neophobia (the fear of newness)

Just imagine a 30 year old man running around a shopping center screaming "EVERYTHING IS SO NEW, WHY"

Can you Whip can you Dab can you Hot the Folks don't Stop can you hit that Sexy Walk Leg Up Leg Down

I have Neophobia! But I don't run screaming like those people without this phobia mention - GirlyAnimeLover

I have this fear

39 Atelophobia (fear of imperfection)

Case and point Death the Kid.

I have this. And, it's why I'm always anti-social at times

Aka perfectionists - Randomator

Its real. Just more of an extreme dislike.

40 Hydrophobia (fear of water)

Your walking outside with your mates and all of a sudden it's starts raining - Lamp

This fear isn't stupid. When you're afraid of water, it means your afraid to swim. You can still drink and bath you just don't wanna swim in water.

How do you drink?

Like really? It's a drink. Plus, you may have swam in it before. - Bammer73

41 Halitophobia (the fear of bad breath)

The fear of waking up next to someone in the morning then

Better brush your teeth! šŸ˜›

42 Brontophobia (fear of thunder)

Thunder feel the thunder. - Ilovestephanie

Why does the name sound like the Brontosaurus?

This is not stupid - GirlyAnimeLover

I like thunder

43 Gymnophobia (fear of nudity)

I swear school dress codes have this... "OH NO! A SHOULDER! "

It honestly depends on fear of who's nudity. I would hate to be seen nude in public but honestly wouldn't mind that much seeing other people nude. - TheMasterOfBaiting69

I have this and am afraid of myself naked.

Pennywise has this fear

44 Thanatophobia (fear of death)

Did you know that most Religions were created out of fear of death? It's stupid as hell, and a reason why I'm a protestant. Basically in the past, people were scared because they didn't know what death entailed, so they made up Religions like, 'When you die you go to Heaven.' or 'When you die you come back to live on as an animal.'

Thus, learning R.E is an easier way to learn about the way the brain works than Sociology. People don't want to believe that everything they do is for nought when the die, so petty little lies are created and twisted into 'Religion.'

It's a load of bull, especially when you realise most wars are fought over these intricate little lies woven over time.

Believe me or not, I don't really give a damn.

Protestant is a branch of religion in which if you believe you go to heaven and if you don't you go to hell...
(i know I am protestant) - browncad000

I mostly fear what happens AFTER it. Do I go to heaven? hell? do I stop existing? will I suffer enternal consciousness after death? - Atychi

I think I have this one as well - Lamp

I feel like this is common - Randomator

45 Pupaphobia (fear of puppets)

This is because of Scott Cawthon making Marrionette isn't it. - Lamp

Dave Strider; He has a special case.

Marge:Well everybody's got a fear of something
Homer:Not everybody
Marge:SOCK PUPPETS!
Homer:What?! Where! Where (SCREAMS) so funny

I wonder if they hated the muppets?

46 Ommetaphobia or ommatophobia (fear of eyes)

I heard a kid has this and he dug his eyes out with a spoon

Fear of the illuminati

This one is just plain weird

How would you look at this to diagnose yourself if you hated your eyes(and had probably already dug them out)

47 Cibophobia (fear of food)

Just eat your fear awa-- oh wait

But if you eat it's like killing your fear

Then how do you survive? - Randomator

You will always go hungry

48 Spectrophobia (fear of mirrors)

I sorta have this, I keep thinking someone is gonna appear behind me in the mirror. But honestly sometimes I forget about being scared and am fine with it. Anyways, I don't think this phobia is stupid.

I used to have this fear because of a dream I had when I was younger. Dreamt that when I looked into my mirror, I became a monster or something like that. This scared me because the dream seemed so real to me and it was a lucid dream. I'm over the fear now though. - Gminus

I have this. I hate it. Like something could reach out and grab you and murder you while you brush your teeth. Its creepy and don't think its silly

I have this, but I only get nervous when I see a mirror in the dark. I get afraid that my reflection will become a really scary ghost and pull me in.

49 Ophidiophobia (fear of snakes)

Honestly, snakes are not that scary but I understand how people could be scared of them and I don't think this phobia is stupid. - TheMasterOfBaiting69

This is completely reasonable for some people!

Snakes are lovely, but this phobia isn't stupid, its reasonable for any sane person, I'm just not sane

I think there scary because some are venomous and you don't know which are venomous or not.

50 Equinophobia (fear of horses)

I have this. I've always been terrified of horses my whole life, strangely enough I grew up around them. An unpredictable two faced back stabbing creature!

I'm happy I don't have equinophobia, because I would die! I love horses so much and I own some! Good thing I don't have that! I would ruin my life and other's equestrian's lives

I love horses.

Mate ma'a TONGA
