Top Ten Weirdest Things People Get Scared Of

The Top Ten


In my opinion, jumpscares are about as scary as a marshmallow. They're just too brief to be considered even remotely scary. So what if a creepy picture momentarily flashes on my computer screen? You'd hardly get a gasp out of me. Jumpscares are wholly dependent on the atmosphere and unpredictability of the video game/movie/show they are set in. If they happen too often (like in Five Nights at Freddy's) they lose their novelty and aren't scary anymore.

I'm terrified of jumpscares! They're completely inconsiderate and most of them are pictures worthy of nightmares. In real life, you get a laugh, in YouTube videos, you just get a bunch of dislikes and I have to scroll through all the comments because my fragile self can't handle things like that! - keycha1n

I Hate jump scares! Hitchcock, The Exorcist, and even Jack Nicholson are horror, not jump scares. - Pony

My friends friend does that all the time to her and she gets so angry... By the way my friends friend is a jerk

Justin Bieber's Singing

Isn't Nicki Minaj's "rapping" scarier than this?

Justin Bieber is pretty bad, but there are way more scary things out there. - IronSabbathPriest

Oh boy, don't even get me started on this nightmare.

To put on stupidest things people get scared.


I remember that time in kindergarten where we went to a farm for a field trip. Then the chickens crossed our path and started chasing us. Lol

Afraid of Chicken? No... I can't live without a chicken! I mean in my dish, love chicken that way - Ananya

The only thing scary about them is how many of them we kill. - keycha1n

I used to be scared of them in first sight when I was in 1st grade during a field trip - Kevinsidis


I'm still frightened. People all over YouTube keep posting videos on how singers are cooperating with the Illuminati and it's rumoured that the world is going to end in 2015. Those stupid people will never realize that they scare the little children with the eye and the end of the world. - JaysTop10List

It's 2015 and the world is not destroyed

I've been convinced it's not real. - McKing1003

its 2020! and oh look the world is still here!


I love arachnids. My sister is deadly afraid of spiders but even she holds my pet tarantula.

I hate spiders they are so scary I wouldn't be scared of them if they weren't so creepy looking, how many legs and eyes do they need and why do the poop out webs I don't get it and they charge me all the time I end up on the couch with a spider trying to climb it (i did nothing to it but jump on the couch)

Arachnophobia makes sense in a country like Brazil or Australia, but not in a country like the UK, where spiders are guaranteed to be harmless. - PositronWildhawk

None of them are poisonous unless you corner them and force them to defend, your ass is the last thing they want to bite

I hate seeing spiders. They are creepy, hairy and... Creepy! I sometimes find them on my bedroom ceiling and can't sleep just because of a stupid spider!

Sitting Horses

Yes! Once I saw one and peed my pants! It's just so creepy! They look at you sometimes

Umm... How is this scary? - Powerfulgirl10

How is this scary lol - Lunala

What's the deal? Is it a horse that sits?

I always felt like clowns were creepy, but overall I find them to be people who just enjoy making kids smile and are generally talented (ever tried juggling? ). - keycha1n

I hate clowns I watched a scary movie and have hated them ever since even though I love joker and Harley Quinn but to me that's totally different if I we're to get kidnapped by the joker I would love every second of it. But clowns on the other hand I would not stop screaming.

I hate clowns, but I'm not afraid of them. They're really just people with weird clothes, wigs, and face paint. - Powerfulgirl10

It's not really weird. I too get freaked out by clowns. And the reason is that the facial emotion which a clown shows is mostly unreal (or apparently deceiving which makes them mysterious and frightening). - Kiteretsunu


I always look at people when I walk home from my bus stop after school and think 'is that guy gonna kill me? , I gotta leg it! ' But the guy is just some average citizen, however, I still get wary!

I don't think that I am scared of anything
... find strangers annoying sometimes.
If you just look at them even for a second, they would start thinking that you are infatuated to them and then they would look at you again and again. - Ananya

I disagreed I have xenophobia and I hate people mostly adults and children around my environment I think them as vicious beings - Kevinsidis

Lol I'm not scared when I just see some random people (strangers) walking on the street or somewhere else. But, sometimes when I am in the car alone and there are strangers passing by... kidnappper alert!

Blue Man Group

What if you were in the middle of a foggy forest and you saw them standing there doing nothing, and when you moved, they looked at you, they even moved their heads backwards. Then you turned around and there was a knife in your back. - SammySpore

I've actually always joked about being scared of the Blue Man Group which is why I can't tell you how surprised I was to see it on this list!

I like blue man group - koopatroopaandgoomba4ever

This is probably the best item on this list. I can't stop laughing - LizardKing99
