This Troper has quite the thing for gorn, cruel and unusual deaths, and the effects they have on character's minds. Someone gets their legs ripped off and is forced to watch as their best mate gets ripped to pieces by demons with blood splattering everywhere and the guy goes insane or gets jade-coloured glasses glued to him? It might ake you shiver with disgust, but it's all great to me.
Ok, this troper 's deal: I am obsessed with dragons. There is a reason why my author avatar is half-dragon. And I do have a fetish for dragon girls (i.e. Atra, the Alatreon gijinka from We Are Our Avatars... those wings, I just wanna uuuugh) I also kinda like Cute but Psycho characters; I think Flandre Scarlet is adorable even when killing, and hold Hikage from Senran Kagura as my waifu (her dagger-licking is so hot). My theory is that it may be the whole "attracted to power" thing. I'm not a masochist, but a girl who'd be powerful enough to kick my butt is all the more attractive.
This troper loves Naughty Tentacles to the point where he found himself looking through that page on TVTropes, then searching up any and all examples of it he found. Only the ones where a female character was grabbed/raped by the tentacles though. He also has a thing for brainwashing, to the point where he can't look at the brainwashed page on TVTropes without getting aroused.
[Original poster] This troper cannot see why people think spiders are scary or why people want to kill them. He thinks that they are small, harmless- well, the english ones are- and not scary at all.
BMeph can take or leave regular spiders, but thinks tarantulas are adorable.He often imagines finding a way to fashion tiny diamond-chip-studded canes to fasten to a leg for that whole "fur coat and pimp cane" ensemble. It's also why he likes DrowTales so much...welloutside of the ridiculous boobs and butts.
This fourteen year old troper is a non-practicing necrophiliac, BDSM enthusiast, and foot fetishist. She likes reading about mental illnesses and her favourite disease is the Black Death. She thinks Slendie and Edvard Munch's work is pretty sexy.
This troper adores softspoken sadists with psychotic smirks, and experiences perverse sexual lust for literally dozens of fictional psychopaths and Gothic poets. The first time she saw the music video to The Cure's "Lullaby" she squeed, and her fetishes for cannibalism, spattering blood and straight razors can probably be traced back to a love of Sweeney Todd in all his forms. She came to terms with her issues during "Skyfall", when (during the shaving scene) she was forced to acknowledge that the razor turned her on more than a topless Daniel Craig. She is related to a suspect of Jack the Ripper.
This troper loves creepy things. I'm platonically fascinated and often amused by plenty of things that freak "normal people" the heck out. Disturbing animals, Surreal Horror, the paranormal, Uncanny Valley, monsters, demons, and aliens from other, sometimes hellish dimensions, insanity, Lovecraftian concepts and much more float my boat. My nightmares stopped scaring me a long time ago and now are entertaining and provide inspiration for stories and poems. I scroll through the Nightmare Fuel and related sections laughing at people's reactions, mostly because of the the absurdity and subjectivity of it all. High Octane Nightmare Fuel sometimes provokes the reaction, but once it involves innocent people getting hurt in horrible ways, the giggles stop.
This Troper has a thing for blood, and loves to talk about horror scenario and zombies, but is minor compared to a friend who loves full blown torture and death hentai, loves vampires, anything blood related, etc...but is scared of zombies.
This tropette loves the sound of (usually female) screams, the taste and smell of blood, and thinks the executions from Manhunt 2 are beautiful. Also, she really gets turned on at the idea of other people or herself being humiliated and broken, but that could just be her thing for BDSM talking. Oh and scars on girls? Sexy. She also loves (non real) images of torture and making up various horrors and torture techniques, and finds the idea of a nice cuddling session with slimy tentacles nearly as comforting as the idea of being impregnated with horrors.
There's a reason Pyramid Head is listed as both a molester and a sex god.
Well, aren't they supposed to be kinda sexy? Would they count? I think the only thing that would keep me from bumping uglies with a nurse is the fact that they're probably all cold and icky. Oh, and they might end up killing me or something?
Gosh, where does this troper start. She fetishises incest, zombies, cavemen, bondage, transvestism, eye damage, acromegaly and mental instability. She adores snakes and bats and any creepy looking fish or plants. Her idea of a hunk is Lux Interior.
This Troper has an absolute obsession with the undead. Not vampires or stupid pretty posers like that, we're talking zombies, liches, skeletons, etc. She's always reading about them, always watching things about them, and tends to be rather attracted to the less decayed ones (or the more skeletal). Just watching zombies swarming on somebody makes her smile, and her life's dream would be to become a lich. She's lucky to have found a boyfriend who supports it rather than run away screaming about her reverse-necrophilia, and friends who only tease her about it. Her dream boy though would have to be Richard, Slender Man, or the Grim Reaper himself. She has to settle for skinny pale guys irl. This girl is a Brainy Brunette as well as a pale skinned one.
I also have a love for creepypasta and Lovecraftian monsters.
Holy crap, are you secretly me?!
Are you still dating this guy you mentioned? I'm not exactly skinny, but I can work on it!!! XD
This Troper based his screenname on the fact that he thinks Daleks are insanely cute and wants to own one for a guard-dog. Burglars, intruding police, and the mailman WILL BE EXTERRRRMINAAAATED
This troper isn't much of a Nightmare Fetishist (although he has considered inducing such tendencies just to see what it's like) but has a thing for megalomania. And for Tennant. So yes, this gave him very squiggly feelings.
This troper thinks that someone's mental stability and their attractiveness are inversely proportional. Case in point: I think Rena and Shmion are sexy as hell.
Insanity, blood, people freaking out suddenly (and people around them confused and scared, this can lead to me shipping people too), and screams. Screams are beautiful, and I'm pretty sure a good many people would agree that screams make them shudder or give them chills. Although I'm not too certain most people'd say it gives them chills in a good way. The higher-pitched and rawer? (purer emotion) the better. The only problem? Higurashi would completely freak me out. I'm weird.
-raises hand- Would like to say that screams give me chills in a good way. Especially the raw ones. Brr.
This troper completely agrees. I've lost count of how many times I've gone through Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni, but I just made it back to the second season again.
I decided to watch the anime. It felt kinda like watching porn. Then I read the same scenes in the manga. Cue massive amounts of Squee, uncontrollable smiling, and squee-induced giggling. I think I'm going to collapse from squee overload when I get to see how it handles the ending of the Watanagashi-hen arc. That scene in the anime turned me on instead of scaring me shitless. Maybe it's me who's creepy, not the series.
Definitely agree with this. I just started reading the manga, too. Just got the end of the second arc! Very excited, hehe.
This troper proposes we make a club. Like a sexy Arkham Asylum.
You have a third vote here. We could call the club The Institute for the Criminally Insane and Terminally Sexy.
Make that four members... and make that name disappear... with a vengeance.
Five members, actually, though really I'm not so much of a fetishist for horrible nightmares as just not freaked out by things that are supposed to freak people out. By the way, has anyone else here ever gotten Bored With Insanity or wanted to summon Cthulhu for the lulz?
T.I.C.I.T.S... Tickets? (Not a nightmare fetishist here, but I like acronyms)
Six members...If someone is really hot, awesome for them. If they are insane, it only adds to the hotness.
This Troper's in the process of rewatching Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal talking into the camera during the first encounter with him isn't creepy, it's hot as hell.
You are not alone. Something about the way he can get inside people's heads so well. And how about that shot where he passes Clarice the case file and gently...strokes...one...finger...mmm. I'll be in my bunk.
Add me to the club. please.
Can I be number 9? I don't care if there is a #8 yet or not: Sexy number full of mysticness is sexy. Man, making up names for this is hard! Maybe "NightFan?" which can be a combo of many fun words such as "Nightmare Fanatic" or "Night Fantasy".
What we need is a Nightmare Fetishist Dating Service. A 'Match Made in Hell' sort of thing.
This Troper thought that everyone abouve was nucking futs.... then he watched Season 2 of Dexter. Mmmmm, Lila... (Pardon her tits.)
This troper was kinda weirded out to realize her main thing was for people (especially normally-stoic people) losing control. She was even more weirded out that this combined with her thing for Hurt/Comfort meant that she really enjoyed it when her favorite characters were out of their minds from illness or injury...
Oh my god! It's not just me! I think one of my first memories of being aware of it is when Captain Amelia in "Treasure Planet" got shot.
Yes. Me too. Ever since I was relativly young, too. I mean, like... single figures. But only if it's a hot guy. Or someone I consider hot. I have strange tastes...
This troper is terminally attracted to insane people in real life. Give me a normal guy I'd reject him in a second.
Above troper says: for me it was John Smith getting shot in Pocahontas!! Damn you, Disney...
Most of people are sickened by the sight of blood. This female Troper gets disturbedly often turned on when she sees blood. But this is only and _only_ blood. Gut pieces? No thanks. Also, I have strange fondness towards Judge Doom who caused many traumas (don't deny it!). I don't know why...maybe because he's tall, he's dark, he's Christopher Lloyd and has great voice. Also, I probably wouldn't say no to Joker either...yes, I acknowledge my strange taste in men, and I've also lost count for how many times my friends have called me a "sick bastard." or something relatively close to that.
That is freaking scary. The Vampire Squid, on the other hand, probably counts as a CMoA for Ma Nature.
This troper thinks the picture is pretty cool. She does, however, have a fear of Barbie dolls.
Huh, I always thought the teeth were 'shopped; I find the picture rather funny.
They are 'shopped. Squids have beaks, not teeth.
They ain't shopped, but they ain't teeth either. That's a promachoteuthis sulcus, and those 'teeth' are partly concealed lips that fold over the normal squid beak.
...Alright, I guess I really am a Nightmare Fetishist, that thing's adorable.
Aww! It's SO CYOOT! I want a shirt with that picture on it and big bolded letters that say "Rawr I'mma squid."
Okay, I don't know about the squid, but I wanna meet a chick with that t-shirt.
This troper is a Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant who is hardly affected by and if anything is fascinated by brutal deaths (Asuka's death in EoE was hilarious to me), thinks snakes are cute, and finds terminators somewhat cuddly, at least for things made of metal.
Real Slim: This troper knows a girl who's the same way about insects. Then again, I've got a thing for bats myself... They grow us a little weird around these parts.
This troper also thinks bats are cute, and they don't even have to be Flying Foxes (which do look more like puppies with wings).
This troper thinks bats are cute, and Flying Foxes are freaking adorable. And it has little to nothing to do with her being a Perky Goth.
This troper really started...enjoying her nightmares after reading The Sandman. Made weirder by the fact that she has severe eye squick, and yet...well, it's not her fault The Corinthian was drawn so sexy!
Holy hell, are you me? (This troper's enamored with his not-quite-humanness.)
This troper also has a fondness for bats and spiders, the former almost certainly being, if not spawned, then seriously egged on by reading the Silverwing books in elementary school. The trope in general fits her very well; she tends to be drawn to anything that's commonly thought scary/gross/repellent, particularly if it's harmless or neutral and misunderstood. Some of it is deliberately cultivated, but not all or even the majority. Not quite part of this trope but related is how — thanks to her status as She of Little Emotion — even if she finds something genuinely disturbing, it won't get more than an o_O face or an "ugh" and/or "ew" by way of reaction.
Truth In Television for another troper — he's very hard to seriously Squick, finds that a suggestion of the paranormal adds interest rather than fear, and generally seeks out the weird side of life. Also another vote for loving bats and cephalopods, and I suppose his fondness for bees could fall into the category since someone else mentioned it, although they're more straight-up cute to him than having any suggestion of creepiness about them.
When most people cut themselves, their reaction is to get a band-aid. My reaction ranges from seeing how much blood I can coax to checking the taste to painting a Joker grin on myself.
Same here - I tend to lick the blood off or just watch myself bleed awhile. Never thought of the Joker grin idea, though...
A few months back, I was cutting material for a quilt with this circular cutter, when I sliced my thumb a bit. I spent the next several minutes controlling the urge to run the thing down the inside of my forearm. It'd be so very elegant, though. Just one long, clean, red line...
I used to eat my own scabs.
Same, for both the above. I think I'll try the Joker grin thing next time I cut myself. Now to start juggling knives...
I usually go straight for the scotch tape or whatever else is closest. It's not the bleeding that bothers me, it's the possibility of staining something that annoys me. If I bleed on something, I'll have to clean the damn thing.
Likewise, although I find band-aids more convenient than tape; they stay on and seal better, don't restrict movement as much, and don't lead to people asking you why you have a bloody piece of tape stuck to your finger. I don't mind blood, it's just messy.
Whenever this troper cuts/bites/splits her lip, she continues to suck on it until the blood is mostly gone. She, on occasion, as also been known to lick cuts in various stages in healing (except when completely scabbed over) just to taste the metallic sensation.
This troper , doesn't do it for the metallic taste. He seriously thinks his own blood is kinda sweet... and wonders what other people's blood would taste like.
This troper sometimes does this as well, but for a different reason: there's a substance in saliva that helps your body heal itself, and even reduces the probability that the wound will leave a scar.
This troper never knew that. He just did it for the same reason as above: that sweet, metallic flavor.
This troper always picks at scabs, and if there's excess blood, she either licks it up or dabs a mechanical pencil/paint brush in the pool and uses it to paint the blood in scenes of murder and vampirism. Which she draws a lot. The only downside is that it loses that pretty blood-red color so quickly, and it doesn't look very realistic. How's that for disturbing irony?
To state all the ways in which I'm a Nightmare Fetishist would be tiresome for all concerned, but I'll just note that a) I find a strange beauty in Xenomorphs, and b) I've occasionally found myself casually thinking about what bits of myself and other people would be like if they were prepared as meat.
This troper would like to, after she dies, have her body tasted and for them to create a faux-meat out of it. Like Smart Bacon or Boca Burgers, but Me flavored. And then she wants them to sell it to the masses, just to create a market for people-flavored food. That way, all people who were curious about how human tastes can try it out. She thinks about this a lot.
Actually speaking as an archaeologist there was a running joke a few years ago in archaeology/anthropology circles that someone had created "hufu" human flavoured tofu for any anthropologist interested in researching tribes that practiced cannibalism. it was fake, but a lot of people fell for it, resulting in at least one "holy crap, we taste like tofu" comment.
Ah, good old Voreaphilia. I swear, if it wasn't for the fact that I would die, I would love to be eaten alive.
This troper has grown attached to some strange animals. For starters, at one point he adopted a locust as a pet and named it Scourge. He let it go soon, though. Used to be afraid of snakes, then my sister got a ball python, which was small enough to fit inside a margarine tub at the time; Monty, as I suggested naming him,is now about four feet long and the cutest snake in the world, and the snake phobia is pretty much gone. Oh, and at one point he managed to get a yellowjacket to perch on his finger. Oddly enough, it's birds I don't like, especially loud, colorful ones like parakeets.
Ball Python's are just cute, period. I love them more than anything.
This troper, a Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant with an imagination that could probably make most people blanch, is probably constantly guilty of this. My various fixations include, but are not limited to: surgery and anything medicine-related, scary big-ass arthropods (praying mantises, stick insects, and giant millipedes are some of the best - but not spiders because spiders are scary, ironically), freakishly horrible diseases (go Google morgellons, I dare you), alien abduction, various and sundry gore, cryptids, the whole Thrown Out The Airlock concept, and hell, even nightmares in the literal sense. (That adrenaline rush you get during a scary dream? Awwww yeeeeah.) Just to give you an idea of what we were dealing with here, I was actually a little bummed when I found out that Gantz was far less graphic then I had been lead to believe. Sure, it was gory and pretty and fun and the only show that has Nishi, but come on, people. It's not that bad. At least, not to me anyway... * Grin*
Kulture here,Want nasty diseases? try the parasitic disease Mucocutaneous Leishmaniasis, google it if you wish, but just to warn you that in the advanced stages it gets REALLY fun
This troper lived with someone who was a total Nightmare Fetishist. Sometimes he was joking, but other times he was half-serious or completely serious.
This troper's mother is terrified of snakes and rats. This troper, however, thinks snakes and rats are awesome and loves to pet them when someone has them available. Said troper also had a friend who went through a series of pet rats, and actually brought one rat, Josh, to their eighth grade graduation party. Needless to say, the only people who weren't freaking out were this troper, her rat-owning friend, and a couple of other friends.
This troper's favourite pastime is saying "Did you know that...?" and then proceeding to scar people for life. Also, he purposefully looks for Nightmare Fuel on the Internet just to prove he can take it. He does the same with anything other people find unpleasant, such as physical pain, strong beverages, horror movies, etc. Is it a macho thing?
Nah, this troper is 14 years old and female, and she does it too. It's not a macho thing.
This Troper has a friend who sometimes does that with showing off shock vids, but I just interpret it as him being an asshat. The guy's also one of several vampire fetishists I know. Being a furvert, I'm more into Lycan bitches, but the vamps do have their attraction. In fact vampires are kind of the embodiment of nightmare fetishism, death, blood, corruption, overall something that has damn good reasons to be genuinely scary but which ends up turning the audience on
You should hear This Troper's Health Career's teacher talk about her job as an emergency nurse. "The moment I saw his face squirting blood, I knew I'd love this job."
This Troper thinks reptiles and bats are awesome AND the cutest little guys on Earth, jellyfish are pretty and is fascinated by the bizarre and obscure. He has also made characters in his stories show how the bizarre and obscure and be cute and nice. Playful little four red eyed, two mouth...ed acid dragon with whip like tongues and likes cotton candy? Yes please. :3
Wait, this is weird? This troper only got back into eating fruit for breakfast with the realisation that if she bit into a cherry just right and licked her lips she could give herself a Joker grin. She fangirls over at least two convicted murderers. She lost interest in the film versions of The Phantom Of The Opera as soon as she realised they weren't going to go for the horrific skeleton-face, and purposely stops reading at a certain point in Susan Kay's Phantom so she can pretend there's absolutely no possibility of a happy ending. (There isn't one, sort of a Foregone Conclusion, but too much hope, damnit!) Scab-picking, sharp fingernails, gorgeous snakes, cadavers, bite marks and bruises, and consumption... all turn-ons, though not necessarily like that. Necessarily. Amputated digits? Splendid. She often purposely seeks out nightmare fuel and is occasionally quite disappointed when it doesn't live up to its reputation...
It also took this very wiki to make this troper realise she is probably a sadomasochist of some sort. Can you be a sadomasochist and asexual? I'd much rather ponder something horrible and violent happening to someone (which, of course, results in hurt/comfort rather than death... usually) than something delightfully sexual.
Wow. Two people just like me. Nice.
You ladies could make a coven. I'll be Macbeth.
I'm not alone! Good gosh! (The OP here also has a massive deal over Eye Scream and Fingore, to the point where the only time I found Johnny Depp actually sexually attractive in any meaningful sense was when he was in messily blinded swearing spitfire mode. She's also found that she really does like military gear, from a mostly-innocent respect for and interest for modern military uniforms and BD Us, to a distinctly less wholesome interest in uniforms with fascist stylings. Still, there's so very much intellectual squick there with that last one that she had to create a fictional Fetish Fuel Future to allow for handsome, dark-eyed torturers in sharp, tailored uniform without inevitable Nazi connotations.)
This troper likes creatures most people find disgusting. He has had a pet snake anda lizard, thinks octopuses (or is it octipi?) are really cool, and is perfectly comfortable around creatures that creep most people out. There are some animals even he doesn't like to be around, tho (like maggots).
This troper thinks that cephalopods, vultures, jellyfish(though they aren't usually considered terrifying, just bizarre), and bats(especially those adorable vampire bats) are lovely creatures, and finds the skeletons of dead animals rather pretty as well.
This troper has a (sexual) blood kink.
This Troper was watching Whose Line Is It Anyway and couldn't believe the audience was so Squicked by the images of bats behind Colin. I mean, they're so CUTE, like little flying mice!
Add another one to the "bats are cute" and "reptiles are awesome" crowds. Although, okay, you couldn't get her within a mile of a venomous snake.
Um. This troper is another in the column of "most stereotypically creepy animals are either cute or pretty", but she's starting to think she might have a blood thing. There was a 70s-era feminist pamphlet which encouraged women to taste their own menses, and although she was initially repelled, she has tried it. It really doesn't have that sort of flat sickening quality of normal blood. More recently her big toenail embedded and got infected, and she keeps peeling at layers of skin, squeezing out the pus, licking the blood and red tissue. Then picking out and trying to eat the dried blood globs, but they stick to her teeth.
Were we separated at birth? This troper has admittedly never licked an ingrown toenail (although she keeps getting them), but she spends a lot of time picking and squeezing at hers. (I swear to God it feels good, in a painful kind of a way.)
This troper keeps getting ingrown toenails. After bad memories of hospital anaethestic, she has resorted to yanking out ingrown parts by herself. Seriously, a successful operation can be done under half an hour using two pairs of scissors and tweezers...nice.
The human mind fascinates this troper, but the people/mentalities that intrigue her the most are the insane ones. Not like The Mad Hatter or that; like the Monster Clown, instigators of the Slasher Smile, Hannibal Lecture, and things like that. She often wonders which would scare her more; the downright off-kilter slashers, or the ones where you can't tell if they're really insane or perfectly right of mind. Not that she would want to meet people like this, but characters and people in history that fit these interest her.
This troper once severely creeped out a friend with the following exchange:Friend: So I was at an anatomy workshop and there were dissected dead people lying around.Troper: Awesome!
This troper has a morbid streak a mile wide, is fond of researching old dark ride art and freak show performers, and especially loves going camping in the uncanny valley. She startles very easily, so she occasionally sees something that gives her the screaming mimis (don't google Fantastic Hey Hey Hey, for one), but she just keeps coming back every time. It hurts so good.
This troper found the girl robot in Fantastic Hey Hey Hey kind of hot. Then again, she's a self-admitted robophile...
(You're not going to, er, link to this archive, are you? Because that would be... um.) This troper similarly digs post-mortem photography, and crime photography as well, particularly Speed Graphic art from her local area. One of the photos (from the late 50's/early 60's, tops) is of a woobieish, by now long-dead, teenage boy with a succulent split lip and a black eye, and the very saddest expression on his face... who was unfortunately in custody for killing his grandmother to run away and be a rock and roll star. (For hopefullyreasons, this same troper platonicrushes on Parker and Hulme, as well as Leopold and Loeb.)
MythSage likes reading creepypasta. He also finds Uboa to be rather endearing. HE JUST WANTS TO BE LOVED
This Troper really likes getting scared, and is another one who thinks bats are adorable. Spitfires too.
I never fail to be consistently amazed at people thinking rats are ugly and acting strangely about the concept of them as pets. I've had three sets of them and can confirm that they are utterly adorable; the same goes for my love of jellyfish. Also, I'm consistently terrified of people seeing what I'm drawing at school because of what their reactions might be to it. I started off innocently enough with a stupid story involving a guy with a unibrow and a possessed laptop, and now most of my sketches are of cosmic horrors, mummy nurses, and a rich schoolkid turning into a cyclopean slime-thing as he cries hysterically.
Aversion/Played straight. Radioactive Zombie hates penises or women called "sluts" in his pr0n. He does, however, have a thing for lions getting freaky with hot women. Haven't seen any yet, though. >_>
Look up Ancient Rome, they rather liked it too.
I tend to like insects. Partial subversion, though, in that I tend not to like the varieties that bite/sting humans. Dragonflies, on the other hand, are a personal favorite.
This troper finds diseases to be fascinating. As in being in elementary school and watching medical videos over and over, and as she got older, it didn't get better. She would poke and prod at her scabs and pimples and pop them to see what comes out. She is now in college, changed to microbiology after realizing she still has the obsession, and has several plushie models of diseases. Anyone want a Black Death plushie? It's so adorable, it'll make you sick~
Update: I apparently get a sort of creepy reaction of awe and curiosity when seeing different medical conditions. One man's nightmare fuel is something I'd like to see face to face to poke at. * shudder* It's creeping me out.
I adore this kind of stuff. I think other people in pain is hillarious, write horror stories and am the only one in my family that does NOT freak out, scream, throw up or cry when watching a horror film (heck, I can survive an entire evening of David Cronenberg films). I also love all things to do with the paranormal. On occasion I read Fangoria Magazine.
Since becoming a horror movie fan, I really enjoy my nightmares. My two favourites are A) an extremely vivid one about a zombie accidently summoned in an old hotel and B) one where a high school student played by Jennifer Carpenter goes exploring in an Abandoned Hospital, slips into the ghost world and held there by an evil ghost who was, awesomely, played by Meryl Streep. She tries to escape both the building and the ghost reality, but can't, while Giles and her friend [Kristen Bell] try to get her back. Man, it's such a pity I rarely remember my dreams, that was really cool.
This troper reads books about true crime (mostly on serial and mass murder) voraciously. They disturbingly calm her down after stressful days. And sometimes, they give her very interesting squiggly feelings in the nether regions, especially if there are cases involving abduction/torture/domination. "Devil in the White City" is highly recommended.
At least you're not a Vorephile/Macrophile/Microphile furry like I am. Yes, that means I would love to be eaten by a giant vixen. Brain Bleach dispenser is on the left.
I can top that. Voreaphile, Macro/Microphile (they are pretty much the same), Pokephile (a fan name made by those who love Pokemon), BDSM, and Insertion. So, imagine someone wanting to be tortured and used as a dildo by a giant Pikachu before being swallowed alive, left to slowly dissolve painfully in the stomach acids
Also a macrophile, but more on the gentle side. Imagine, the giantess holding you in her arms, caressing you, radiating beauty as she... Hm? You're still here?
Now I'm just wondering if any other macrophiles here discovered their interest thanks to having an unusual reaction to Godzilla movies...
This Troper finds the mind control parasites interesting, but more so is parasite pregnancy. There's just something bizarrely interesting about knowing that some creature evolved and enters other creatures for the sole purpose of breeding and multiplying.
Anyone else here into LGD's? (For the unknowing, think of a combination of hermaphrodites and tentacles or, more likely, snakes. Rawr!)
Though it is certainly not sexual, this troper is utterly fascinated by meat and meat preparation: meat grinders, meat cleavers, smokehouses, slaughterhouses, packing plants, barbecues grills...
See my response to the person above you. You sure you're not a vore?
This Troper suffers/enjoys some of the things listed above. I like all kinds of undead creatures; skeletons, zombies, ghosts, whatever. It's absolutely Fetish Fuel material for him. On the other hand, Gorn or any kind of blood and gore seriously squicks this troper out. So, stitches & exposed bones = hot. Flesh ripped off and entrails hanging out = not so much. Actually, to expand that, I like any type of CuteMonsterGirl, especially Goo Girls. Am I alone here?
You most certainly are not, although this troper prefers spidergirls and gorgons to goo girls. I also have a tremendous crush on Tulip from Fallout 3, and have this beautiful lady◊ as my desktop wallpaper.
This troper is a historian. Recently she had a dream of being chased around her back garden by Josef Mengele, then dragged into the shed she doesn't have (which conveniently transformed into a laboratory once inside) and cut to ribbons. She woke up having loved every moment of it and very turned on. Most people would have seen a therapist. She bought a uniform and started attending fetish shows. It worked wonderfully.
Cut to... Uh, wow. Never have that one acted out in real life, I suggest...
This troper is... fascinated by giant, godzilla-esque reptiles. Yeah... no idea why...
That's often the first thing that clues in macrophiles to their own interests. That's how I found out...
An example of LITERAL Nightmare Fetish: This troper (Helix Snake) not only is sexually attracted to dinosaurs and dragons (the more fierce and dangerous looking, the better, especially sexy when they're angry, not at me of course), but is also a soft vorarephile. To be fair, the dinosaur/dragon in my desires/fantasy is always kind and gentle, to me anyways, but if someone else tries to hurt me, they're dino/dragon food.
This troper has been disappointed when delicious dreams about being abducted and abused have cut away at the crucial moments. She's not sure if disappointment at not having been raped in a dream is being a Nightmare Fetishist or if it means she needs help.
Chalk up another one for the "bats are cute" crowd. I also think bees are cute (admit it: if you didn't know what it was, you'd think it was cute too). In fact, pretty much the only animal in the world that scares me is elephants.
This troper absolutely loves the macabre, finds torture and the idea of going insane fascinating (Not like that), has extremely disturbing daydreams and surrealistic Nightmare Dreams that would make Cthulhu scream in utter terror, and loves nothing more than terrifying the living daylights out of people. Did I mention I also write short horror?
This troper loves octopuses, reptiles, turkey vultures, rats, plecos◊ (Isn't he cute?) and spiders. She's also know among her friends as the resident vampire-and-serial killer expert. (Her nickname actually is "the Serial Killer", due to her gigantic morbid streak.)
This troper is a bit disappointed by the people who think they're nightmare fetishists just for finding bats or reptiles cute. There's a reason they're in petstores people! On a personal note, While I may not be lust-struck by blood, I do love a good fistfight before a romp, both for the delicious pain and the beautiful bruises on myself and my lover. Said lover has some dark fantasies himself which I adore to indulge breaching into some rather terrifying imagery and general BDSM seriousness. In addition I had a friend once who oh god he was so sexy. It helped that he was visually asian (somehow a mix of various european countries produced a phillipino looking boy), but what I really loved was to hear about all the lovely ways he would string his girlfriend to the cieling, using homemade toys and fantastic, bloody fights as foreplay... Such a shame he was monogamous to an extreme. He only had eyes for her...
This troper is a fan of a wide variety of transformation types, including many forms of Body Horror, as well as Mind Control. He once encountered a "fetish map" graphic and was astonished to realize that at least a third of it applied to him.
This troper is very much the same way, being a fan of transformations and such (with considerable exceptions), but she strongly dislikes the term "fetish". She also enjoys the strange and unnatural, and pretty much anything that hasto do with stuff like that.
This troper (grendelkhan) remembers dreaming very, very infrequently, and hasn't had an actual nightmare since childhood. So I read creepypasta and watch spooky clips at two in the morning and then sleep soundly. Because I can.
You still remember your dreams more often than THIS troper. I can read creepy stuff at all hours of the night too. I can also feign insanity. But then again, so can anyone. Now, on to even more nightmare fetishism!!!
I can also feign insanity extremely well, to the point of freaking the shit out of my friends when I pretend to be insane. I even freaked out my English teacher when he asked me to act out part of a story for him. The guy is the director of my high school theater group, and I scared him. The part was Montresor from The Cask of Amontillado.
This troper scared the heck out of her writing class teacher by responding to a prompt we were told we could interpret "any way we wanted"— read, with a sweet, cute, pacifist bent, about murder not being entertainment— by writing from the perspective of a character who vocally beggedto differ. I wasn't aware that we were going to be reading these aloud for the class, but I did my best. And was apparently, er, convincing. I was terribly embarrassed, but better to be typecast as perfectly amoral maniac than as Loud Girl. (This troper also adores all things Rated M For Manly, and not just for the hunky, shirtless men. There need to be more action movies starring butch women, methinks. Not just prettied up Action Girl types. Actual butch women. :: fans self ::)
Yeah, I do the same thing. Actually, the only real danger I have when seeing something disturbing is not getting to sleep. My nightmares tend to be the "Oh crap, I've got a project due in an hour" variety, and most of my other dreams are just plain bizarre.
Don't look in my "Kaibutsu" folder on my computer. Just don't.
This troper loves the slightly painful feeling of a medical syringe going into her arms and mouth, but doesn't do drugs.
Milder than many examples, but This Troper loves many Ugly Cute creatures (including rats and cephalopods), has been fascinated by freak show performers since middle school, enjoys reading about weird medical conditions (although I'm not a fan of visual gore), and has a bit of a kink for consensual Naughty Tentacles.
This troper enjoys looking up disturbing and disgusting images online before I eat or while eating just because I can and gets extremely excited and once squeed when her anatomy teacher mentioned the words 'cat dissection' and 'internal organs' in the same sentence - and was extremely amused when she poked the lungs of said cat and discovered that it was spongy. She was also very amused when she was extracting the brain of said cat and plans to keep it in a jar and take it home at the end of the year.
This troper has a huge yandere fetish. She finds Slasher Smiles, Berserker Tears, and girls covered in blood extremely hot. She laughs during horror movies and stares at medical shows or true crime scene photos with an expression much like a kid in a candy store, likes the feeling of needles, and barely staves off the urge to smear the blood on the walls when she gets a nosebleed. Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni made her squee, and she's a bit of a Knife Nut. She thinks licking them is fun, and that they can substitute for forks or spoons in nearly all circumstances.
This troper shares in your yandere fetish, but arrived a year too late (Megaupload was shut down)! Can you or someone who has downloaded the file please provide a new link?
Add this troper to the list, too! I hope Yandere no Onna no Ko gets made into an anime, and personally likes it when there's some form of mind control involved. Bonus points if they're Laughing Mad. Of course, that somewhat contrasts with the stuff I like that Tastes Like Diabetes, but that's what Grotesque Cute is for! There She Is meets Irisu Syndrome, hmm...
This troper is fascinated by serial killers, gore, zombies, crazy people, knives... She also laughs at horror movies.
This troper shows shades of this. Ryoko is like her favorite character anyway (and she saw a You Tube video of the scene where she attempts to murder Kyon before watching the rest of the series— it was actually her first impression of the series. Eversion is one of her favorite video games. In Tales Of Symphonia, she was more intimidated by the puzzles of the Human Ranches than by the And I Must Scream implications. Yet, loud noises make her jump, she's scared of butterflies of all things, and she has about a billion and a half phobias...
While most people find Break The Cutie sad and pathetic, this troper usually revels in it. Sane characters losing their minds and their lives getting completely destroyed? Gimme! But while it's okay for fictional characters, she can't fend off the feelings of guilt when it comes to real people...
This Troper loves Grotesque Cute, tends to have a reaction to Enfant Terrible, Undead Child, and Creepy Child along the lines of "SQUEE!"; her initial reaction to the title character of Franken Fran and The Reveal regarding Adorea from the same series was "I want one!", and she thinks it's adorable when Fran's eyeballs fall out, and wishes it would happen more often. She finds Carn Evil hilarious, and Childrin R Skary and Living Dead Dolls absolutely adorable. Unfortunately, this doesn't mean she's immune to Nightmare Fuel... just that some of it is pretty... different, like that caterpillar from Super Mario Galaxy or gazpacho soup with extra vegetables — no, really. Also, just having someone say her name when she isn't expecting it can freak her out.
This troper loves nightmare fuel! Once, her sister commented that an episode of a TV show (don't remember what show it was, unfortunately) was nightmare fuel. This troper immediately ran to a computer, got on youtube, and watched the episode six times in a row. It's not that nightmare fuel doesn't scare/disturb her. She just likes to scare herself. A lot. She doesn't like things like dissected bodies and stuff. More like the urban legends and stories that could be somewhat possible. And bats, snakes, bugs, etc. One of the few things that squicks her out is dissected anything. But the thought of disturbing urban legends being true? COOL! (Strangely, despite the fact that she can barely stand to go a week without reading the nightmare fuel pages to scare herself, this troper is terrified of crossing bridges. Even tiny bridges over six-inch deep water.)
Where most people see Uncanny Valley, this troper sees sexy valley. this video got her seriously hot. You see freaky puppet, I see shota.
This troper spent most of her childhood very timid and even Treehouse of Horror could give her nightmares, but around eighth grade began a full metamorphosis into a NightmareFetishist upon messing around with some Halloween makeup and discovering she could do a good vampire face. She now watches CSI mostly for the weird murders, loves Ghost and Dark type Pokemon, devours any Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King she can get her hands on, wears Elegant Gothic Lolita, and counts Franken Fran, Kuroshitsuji and Soul Eater, among others, as her favorite anime and manga series.
This troper loves anything with buttloads of carnage and gore. She's even writing her own horror novel.
This troper does love his creepypasta, though quite often he finds himself disturbed by it enough that it keeps him up at night. Including creepypasta he came up with himself. So I'm not sure that counts. Instead, I think I'm a variation... I have a serious thing for Nightmare Fetishist girls. (No, I'm not trying to hit on the female tropers on this page.) I find it both sexy and non-sexually endearing. It doesn't matter whether her interests are sexual or just fascinations. It also doesn't matter if I don't share the same tastes... that's actually kind of the point. (Though I admit I do have an... odd kink or two it would be encouraging if she had.) There are exceptions/limits to this, of course.
This troper loved doing the earthworm dissection in junior high and was the only one in her group (all girls) who even wanted to touch it. She also wanted to do the rat dissection in high school even though it wasn't required, and she did it and liked it.
This troper is of the Bats are the cutest darn things and snakes are gorgeous camp. She also has a tendency to lick her own blood, loves to get her characters cut up and bleeding (she has an Heroic Albino that's a favorite for the fact the blood shows up so nicely, and makes him look even more Vampiric). She also has a major Mind Control/Brainwashed And Crazy kink - with the subject still being aware of their actions.
This troper has talked to a lot of women/teenage girls, and the majority of them are in consensus that the Brainwashed And Crazy while aware of it thing is very hot. It's instant Woobie, just add a frightened/apologetic expression. This troper, while loving it, also curses it because there are other situations to write about, but she just can't stop writing with that formula.
This troper thinks pretty much everything listed under Nightmare Fuel is either awesome or lame. For instance I think Gygas is the most awesome villain ever created!
This troper thinks warhammer 40k's tyranids are the cutest things ever. Playing Dawn Of War 2 is endless fun, as seeing a screen full of little all-consuming mouths on legs rampaging over everything is simply adorable. He cannot fathom why nobody else seems to share his view. On an unrelated note, in his biology class after extracting a fish's eyeballs using a pair of boltcutters, bursting them, and removing the lenses for study, his (and about half the rest of the class's) next move was to start flicking the lenses at people, much to everyone's amusement, so perhaps a degree of this is present in everyone.
During a game of 40K my mom mentioned that she thought the Great Unlean One, you know the deamon with its entrails coming out, was cute.
This troper finds eyepatches, scars, and the idea of being kidnapped or going insane extremely interesting. On top of that, she also had a bit of fun while dissecting a shark. The skull made a lovely crunching sound when she cut into it with a razor.
Oh my gosh! Me too! This troper was intrigued by all the oil that came out, and really annoyed at her lab partner for cowering on the far end of the table. Look at their eyes! Gorgeous, simply gorgeous.
In this troper's D&D campaign, one character was a gnome illusionist who, due to some weirdly traumatic experiences, ended up only able to produce illusions that were pure Nightmare Fuel. The DM inadvertantly turned a bunch of Bugbears and their Hill Giant leader into Nightmare Fetishists when they consistently rolled well on their Will Saves and weren't scared by his creepy illusions (we're talking stuff like a baby with tentacles growing out of their chests and going "Daddy?").
This troper is, when it comes to real people and real things, incapable of tolerating even the slightest bit of violence happening to someone without feeling absolutely terrible. However, when it comes to fiction she has discovered that she seems to have an interest in characters going insane, Ax Crazy Bishonen, and characters suffering through mental and physical torture. This creeps herself out much of the time. Also, there does not exist an animal she can honestly say she considers ugly, except perhaps Chimpanzees and a few other species of ape. Especially deep sea creatures, which are absolutely adorable from her point of view.
Allow me to just preface this by saying that I do not, in any way, shape, or form, support Nazi ideology. In fact, as people and as an organization as a whole, I am thoroughly disgusted by them. Now, that disclaimer given... the uniforms. Sweet holy gods, the uniforms. Be it Luftwaffe, Schutzstaffel, Wehrmacht or otherwise, if you are wearing a WWII German military uniform, expect me to knock you down, sit on you, and proceed to rip your clothes off with my teeth. RAWR. (...If you actually are a Nazi, however, it won't be your * clothes* I'm ripping off.)
You're not alone in this. Watching Nazis on History Channel... the sheer numbers of a crowd, the organization, that delightful stomp the boots make... there's just something enthralling about it. And Hitler's pseud-religion and his obsessional with the occult! Oh! His folk parade with knights in Nazi full plate, river nymphs dancing in the streets, Pallas Athena's head as a float... Then there was his own messianic ritual, where he went on that improv tower and watched as hundreds of Germans with torches danced and formed a rotating swastika out of the light... it was somehow so terrifying and enthralling. Hitler was ape-shit crazy, but he knew how to roll in style.
It's good to know I'm not alone. This troper designed an uniform to wear after taking over the world, and it looked awfully like a Nazi uniform. I'd look extremely good in that...
This troper is more of a literal fetishist. He loves all the 'creepy' animals; snakes, scorpions, rats, spiders, bats, deep sea fish, insects, vultures, cephalopods, etc. But sometimes... -more-. Whenever he sees a snake, especially a constrictor, he can't help but start to imagine them slithering over some member of the fairer sex amidst... writhing, shall we say? There just seems something plain erotic about snakes to me. Bats? My thoughts inevitably turn to a passage from War of the Spider Queen where Pharaun describes a succubus' wings as like having 'hot towels draped over him'. Think about it; they're like your own private set of covers and blinds all in one, and you just know at least one part of them has to be an erogenous zone. And speaking of spiders, this troper was associating spiders with sex before he had even hit puberty. Once again, something just seems inherently erotic about them to me. (Heh, bondage...) Cephalopods? ... Like I've even got to say it. Once again, this one was ingrained before I even knew what sex really was. Personally, I blame Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
Doom Tay is turned on by physical deformities that don't, say, scramble your face. Extra heads or limbs, sirenomelia, and the like. He also daydreams about animals being surgically crosses in the vein of Vladimir Demikhov, but with separate animals. Things like a snake coming out of a human's tailbone or belly button, or a centaur with the horse head still there.
This Troper has a bad case of Nightmare Fetishism. Not only does she think that the Slender Man is the sexiest thing to happen this year, she also got rather...excited when she saw this picture when browsing Draco In Leather Pants. Traditional smut does nothing for her, which is one of the reasons she loves writing horror stories and drawing deformed people and monsters. Is it really any wonder that Jordu Schell is her favourite artist?
Be it creepy chilren, stringy haired ghost girls or anything dark and moody, this troper finds it irrisistably cute (Ayanami Rei for the win, and the End of Evangelion was an awesome movie as well). He tries to keep it low though, due to a huge number of weirdoes around him who for some reason disagree.
Uh... Did I mention blood covered killer lolis?
This Troper has been asked, on numerous occasions, to refrain from sharing his kinks during fetish-related conversations. Among the askers are a vorephiliac, a necrophiliac, several tentacle rape fans, a devotee, and someone into lolicon bestiality.
This troper has some serious PSL for Franken Fran. On top of that, my first college crush was on a girl who had a reputation for being violent and borderline psychotic. That was part of the reason for said crush.
Many people dislike vultures. For this troper, they are his favorite bird.
This troper is a sucker for for the gothic, the squickey and the horrifying. Which is weird, because his 8-year old self ran out of a screening of Pocahontas because one of the minor characters got shot.
This troper just spent a lot of time watching childbirth and c-section videos. Okay, so she was doing research for a story, but whatever. Very educational and interesting. Also, she likes to read the (High Octane) Nightmare Fuel pages, the Squick page (the old stuff, before it all got removed), Body Horror, etc.
This troper enjoys going through the High Octane Nightmare Fuel, Body Horror, Paranoia Fuel, Transformation Trauma, And I Must Scream and similar pages for fun. She tends to think more "I wonder what that would be like..." than any sort of disgust. She also enjoys tasting her blood when she's accidentally cut herself. She likes watching/reading many things from the horror genre; she also enjoys documentaries and such about serial killers, medical abnormalities, and the like. She thinks rodents, reptiles, and tarantulas are awesome, and enjoys reading about some of the deadlier creatures in nature. She also doesn't consider her strange dreams to be nightmares but realizes that some of them might disturb other people.
This troper reads H.P. Lovecraft for pleasure and happens to really like cloudy foggy rainy days. Maybe it's because he lives in California, so they're rare.
Where in California do you live? You should consider moving to San Francisco, or anywhere in the Bay Area really. When I lived there, it rained all the time and was almost constantly foggy during winter.
This troper is surprised that he is the first to drop by with a exciting foot and tickle fetish. This troper rationalizes it by claiming he likes to see people happy, is that so wrong?
This Troper shares your interests, and thinks that even for some of the most hardened Gorn fans here, being tickled would be a nightmare in and of itself.
This troper has a thing for being tickled. Why not? I'm very, very sensitive, so much so that most of my body is an erogenous zone... -shiver-
This troper's got a thing for winged humanoids, especially the ones with feathery wings. Thing is, this applies even when the character in question is as creepy looking as Ryuk from Death Note. I also go full-out fangirl over Jack the Ripper, which actually doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me as I don't see a good reason why I should.
Where have you been all my life? Winged Humanoids are *awesome!!* ...But I much prefer dragonlike wings- feathered ones aren't to my taste (although Howl is awesome too, and manages to stay the personification of Bishonen-icity even when he transforms into a demonic...bird thing.) An instant way to make a character much more awesome/sexy: give him/her wings. Pretty much half the protagonists in my manga series SvH grow wings in their Super Mode- Dreigonix Skyblaze, Zelda Shadowgale, even Robert Blaze- that's awesome.
This troper has a BIG fetish for Goth women!! I mean, really!!! I also LOVE Spiders!!! Also, the color black is one of my faves, and I love witchcraft, black cats, and the like, and I even practice fortune telling!! One day, I hope to learn black magic or join the Wiccan religion. Though in this case, Dark is not evil, because he borders on the messianic.
-raises hand-. She just like creepy and squicky things. D: Unexplained phenomna such as UF Os and the Bermuda Triangle, plagues, serial killers, ghosts and other psychic or metaphysical phenomena, and odd fetishes all fascinate her in a scholarly way. Also spent several minutes explaning to my sister how venison felt much more like human flesh than beef or pork typically does, and the reason why. Well, until the sister clamped her hand over this one's mouth.
This troper has been fascinated by infectious diseases literally since kindergarten, and once had a dream in which she got Ebola. She voluntarily quarantined herself with the intent to study the progression of her symptoms as long as she could, and woke up more creeped out by her lack of worry in the dream than by the dream itself.
This troper likes EVERY kind of animal more or less. More reptiles(they are cool, snakes are beautiful though), amphibians, and insects/spiders(I consider spiders(though hairy ones are more boring) cute. They got fricking cute beady dot eyes...)(and some of more special fishes/aquatic animals)less bacteria/viruses and parasites(and more boring fishes. Since they are boring.).(Note: Likes birds better than mammals because they are kind similar to reptiles(+ mammals are only cute)and fav bird is raven and pretty much any bird from corvidae) Mainly because they are too small to see.(and I find idea of bacteria that can change behavior creepy) Though I don't dislike them since I consider them perfectly normal and kinda interesting... I do find most of people here creepy for liking serial killers.(I only like them as good villains, finding them attractive because of their insanity is creepy.)
This Troper is thoroughly immune to Shapeshifting Squick, no matter how painful the transformation seems to be; it rather turns him on. Less literally, he finds snakes and various large invertebrates cute and cuddly.
This troper has a deep interest in psychological torture methods, Gaslighting especially. The human mind is a complex and enigmatic thing; realizing how easy it is to dig in and break it is both frightening and fascinating. Naturally this troper has no plans of performing such things on anyone: this troper is thinking of becoming a psychologist one day, and learning how to break something can give you insight on how to fix it.
This Troper has a reputation amongst some of his friends for writing all manner of depraved, haunting, twisted, eldritch and downright nightmarish stuff for his numerous mythoses. He's a huge fan of HP Lovecraft's creations (particularly Cthulhu, Nyarlathaotep and Azathoth), Rob Zombie, the SCP Foundation and psychological horror in general, regularly browses the Nightmare Fuel and High Octane Nightmare Fuel pages for new content and loves playing creepy games like Yume Nikki and Eversion, discussing creepy things he and his friends have seen/heard/experienced and teasing his more "normal" friends and acquaintances with what he finds fascinating and, sometimes, amusing.
Except for Gorn and Smiledog. Ugh. Those just turn his stomach.
This troper, if you believe the regional propaganda, is a complete monster, Torture technician and practicing cannibal. I likewise read Lovecraft and the SCP foundation, and write my own works. I've crossed /X/ a thousand times, and come back stronger. Factor in this troper's sado-masochism, many Superpowered Evil Sides and misanthropy and it all gets a bit much for most.
This troper is described by this trope to such an extent that an apparent stranger has seemingly added an oblique reference to one of this troper's paintings in the examples list. Said painting, among many others, contains Gorn, degradation, and other Nightmare Fuel.
This troper (Elmarien) is master when it comes to faking normality. Sure, she is a germophobe and hates messy things, but it's really hard to make her Squick and not Squee - her personality has an inner League of Evil (formed by a Mini-Hitler in command, a necromancing Grim Reaper, a Mad Scientist, a charming devil and a torture technician) and a League of Good (always on vacation).
Kulture here, in a rare cheerful post, Like the above troper I have a variety of nasty little personalities in wait, but consisting of a full-blown Waffen-SS commander (the sort who would try and stage a coup against hitler, yes, I'm quite messed up), a psychotic undead swordsman who frequently canibalises his victims after he's done torturing them, a decadent dandy with a sado-masochistic streak and a shadowy man with a coat, hat and a Naughty tentaclesEldritch Abomination growing out of his spine. I like playing the part of the stoic, reliable Battle Butler before slowly losing control in a sexual or combat situation, becoming little more than a psychotic, raging monstrosity and fully indulging a few of my sadistic upper-eschelon. I find undead girls quite attractive, and sociopathy is a plus in relationships to me. I also like playing the part of the servant properly, grooming my mistress' ego, supporting her in every single inhuman action and in general adding to the declination of humanity wherever I walk. Equal parts sexually repressed British Butler and complete monster.
The troper above you finds you quite interesting.
Having read the entry, the original poster is somewhat intrigued himself.
This tropette wonders what you're doing Friday night.
You know that scene in the second Aladdin movie where Aladdin's almost beheaded? As a kid, this troper never really understood why that excited her so much. As she got older, she began to realize that hanging scenes in books and movies excited her too. Not the actual death, just the rituals leading up to the executions. With the help of internet searches, she's finally figured out what she's got: an Execution Fetish. (Ironically, she's against the death penalty.)
This Troper and three friends all absolutely love insects. She thinks spiders are very cute, her friend owns 9 tarantulas and theyre adorable. We are also big fans of the supernatural, and love ghosts, vampires, ufos, werewolfes, zombies...Her sister takes this even further as her idea of funny/sexy is Encylopedia Dramatica's offended page and various other stuff like that
This troper's latest fascination? Lotus seed holes. (Hint: Look up "trypophobia" on Google...if you're feeling brave.)
This troper had a dream fairly recently about herself and a group of characters stuck in an abandoned, rusty warehouse. It was inhabited by leathery, humanoid monsters that were each missing a body part (one, for example, had a mass of tentacles in place of a face) and would try and steal them from us. The squid-faced one was at least eight feet tall, and another stole a man's hands. (He ran into the room with bleeding stumps after the fact, I didn't actually see it happen.) But I wasn't freaked out when I woke up, I wrote it down so I would remember it later. Notice I called this a dream, not a nightmare.
Bats ARE adorable, hands down. And the picture for the KnifeNuts page? "We're going to take turns"... please tell me I'm not the only one who got the shivers.
This troper doesn't usually fit... unless it's about music, in which case dark ambient is awesome. Unless it straddles into Nightmare Retardant territory.
This troper generally likes creepy and dark stories, and found herself completely turned on by the nightmare-inducing story I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream. A man trapped and mutilated for the rest of eternity at the whim of a sadistic overlord is more than enough to completely arouse her. This makes her think that she has serious issues.
This troper couldn't stand anything creepy as a kid, not even Goosebumps books. As she got older, though, she discovered that she enjoyed scaring herself. She has also discovered that evil can be sexy (though not always); favorites include Sylar and Angelus. She also thinks vampires biting people is (usually) hot.
This troper has a kink for bodily malfunctions, paralysis and recreationally gives himself motion sickness.
This troper's mother could leave Child!troper in front of the TV with a medical show on and she'd watch it like it was a kid's show. She rarely left the troper there though; she was watching it too. It runs in the family.
This troper has a bit of a list... For starters she has quite the thing for Scarecrow. Yes, the fear gas wielding one. He was listed in her grade one diary as her "celebrity crush". In addition, she has a strange attraction to Lovecraftian beasties, cacophonic whispers, Jewish mysticism and paranoia. Also, CEPHALOPODS. <3
Nobody would accuse me, of all people, of this. Granted, I don't exactly showcase it, but I don't hide it either. Most people are extremely unnerved by a nice guy whose list of things he likes includes: adorable things like babies, puppies, and Kirby, ghosts, horror movies, dinosaurs, bats, mice, music from the 1930s-1980s, rock and roll, snakes, bugs, young children, tales of alien abduction, I could go on. To put it one way, part of my crush on Nico Robin is that she finds Cerberus, the horrible guardian of the underworld, adorable. It likely says a lot about a person when he can play Bio Shock for both the Nightmare Fuel and extremely unsettling atmosphere, and to adopt Little Sisters as wish fulfillment for a family.
This troper is a Vorarephile with a blood fetish, who is quite sad that she no longer gets horrible nosebleeds, but is glad that her new puppy likes to gnaw on fingers. I love the feeling of being bitten, I love watching people bleed (including myself, but I'm not into self harm, I just get really psyched when I cut myself shaving.), and I have a huge thing for vampires, zombies, cannibals, tiger sharks, and basically anything that eats people.
This troper is a really, really sick, sadistic fuck. He tends to like torture porn/extreme BDSM (in fiction at least), and can easily be aroused by a good-looking guy being tortured by pretending the guy wants and is enjoying it. Yeah, extreme masochists turn him on like no one's business. Plus he can easily make his friends reach for the Brain Bleach with his erotic fan fiction- most of which would, ironically, be in character for the characters he's writing about. (He likes villains, what more can he say?)
This troper has had a creepy crush on Raziel since she was ten years old. For those who don't know, most of Raziel's body has decayed to the bone, he's missing most of his skin and his lower jaw is completely absent. Zombie-vampire, wraith, whatever you want to call him, he's lasted a decade with this troper.
though this is justified, as she slept in her parents' pitch-black room as an infant, and, presumingly, her mom cooed "dark" so this troper wouldn't freak out. Scared the crap out of my parents, too, the first time this troper said "dark".
This troper is coming to terms with her sadistic tendencies and hybristophilic ones. Some things on Criminal Minds probably shouldn't be turn-ons.
Right there with you on the hybristophilia, only with more masochistic than sadistic overtones. This troper's idea of a fantasy is being held at knifepoint by Jack the Ripper.
This troper is either sadistic or masochistic (or both? Haven't figured it out yet) and, though she has been completely over her self-injury stint for five years, she's recently been tempted to cut herself just for the heck of it. Also, like many on this page, she finds insanity to be absolutely fascinating. (It's not a good episode of Soul Eater if no one's hallucinating! She'd love to know what it's like to be inside Stein's mind and see what he sees.)
She suspects all these things have a basis in some kind of unorthodox method of dealing with fear. When she was really small, she was scared of ghosts, but that went away when she learned to like them; similarly, she got over her fear of death by developing her scientific/historical interest in corpses and (fictional-only!) Complete Monster fetish.
This Troper gets turned on by snuff fiction - stories in which women are killed, usually during or after sex. However, the biggest element is that it has to be consensual; as others have said, it's about the setup and ritual and surrender more than the act itself. This extends to playing out snuff scenarios on extreme BDSM MU* s, almost always as the victim. As far as this Troper recalls, this goes back to a fascination with death that started around puberty, sparked by a nature book on deadly animals which used second-person stories, putting the reader in the role of various prey animals or unfortunate humans. In Real Life, this Troper is against the death penalty and gun ownership, and will rescue spiders and ants from coworkers rather than letting them get squished.
Maybe do a search on ASSTR? While there's probably a lot more female snuff, I saw a few stories of guys getting hanged.
I don't think I'm you. And yeah, girlsnuff is a lot more common, but there's definitely some boysnuff on ASSTR.
This Troper actively peruses the High Octane Nightmare Fuel section until four in the morning in search of new things to freak her out. She likes getting scared (not in the moment so much as the safe "Wow, that was close..." moments afterward). She also has this huge nonsexual fetish for abandoned buildings, especially abandoned hospitals and mental asylums. She's got a fear of actual, working hospitals and doctors... and yet she would gladly volunteer for "experiments" with the Medic from Team Fortress 2. She also likes full-face gas masks/half-face gas masks quite a bit, studies horrific diseases (Ebola and plica polonica are two of her favorites), and explains to people who ask her "What would happen to me if I [insert this horrific scenario here]?" with long, graphic, in-detail answers. Yet, surprisingly, she gets very, very easily grossed out.
Maybe it's because of personal issues, but this troper loves to see young, attractive men getting humiliated, abused and sometimes being tortured graphically. Nothing to do with comfort, it's just about seeing a pretty boy cry. (In a slight, possible subversion, she hates herself and feels guilty for enjoying it sometimes.)
This Troper gets turned on my fantasies of turning into monsters, especially insectoid or cephalopod-esque ones. Transforming into some eldritch abomination just seems so exciting!
This troper likes going to the Nightmare Fuel page almost on a daily basis and finding things to scare him. And if he's feeling really good, he'll go the next level...
Does anyone remember the House episode where a 25-ft tapeworm was removed from the stomach of a teenage girl? My reaction... "Cool!" (Doctor House must be rubbing off on me.)
This troper has no problem going to the dentist. She actually sort of enjoys sitting there with her mouth open with people fiddling with it and getting crap out of her mouth.
This troper feels this way about Flippy from Happy Tree Friends, Russia from Axis Powers Hetalia, Yuno from Mirai Nikki, Ren from The Ren And Stimpy Show, and Heloise from Jimmy Two Shoes. BIG TIME. They can be incredibly cute and adorable, and become insanely hot everytime they go into Ax Crazy mode. I get rather excited whenever Flippy goes on a killing spree, and gazes at the camera with his narrowed eyes, Slasher Smile, and he gets covered in blood, and his voice goes all deep... Just... UNF. The Screw Yourself aspects between Evil Flippy and Good Flippy don't hurt either. I'm also a major Yaoi Fangirl so I love when there's some Ho Yay thrown into the mix. I also like when the Ax Crazy character is paired with a much saner, sweeter character in a romantic sense, because I have a thing for the Ax Crazy character torturing, mentally and physically, their more saner partner as well as showing them rare moments of kindness. Case in point: Heloise manhandling and tying Jimmy at times and how he's the only one who can slightly rein in her insanity, Yuno's aggressive pursuits of Yukki in between all the killing she does and how she becomes sweet and almost sane in his presence, Ren's blatant Ho Yay with Stimpy and how he frequently goes on psychotic rampages and beats Stimpy up, Russia showing his "love" for his subordinates by alternating between acting nice and abusing them... Major UNF-age man.
Does playing Bullet Hell games count as being a nightmare fetishist? I mean, even the easiest of danmaku shooters have forever terrified people away from the genre.
C-snakes, one of the entries on the Nightmare Fetishist page, were an inspiration for a number of similar alien creatures used in this troper's roleplays. The only difference was that instead of using the skin of the victim as a disguise, the creature instead first reproduced, then bonded to the victim's brain in order to overpower his psyche.
This Tropette has a Nightmare Fetishist Fetish. ...Recursive, yes, but I can't help but feel like squeeing at the thought of someone trying to apply any of the above fetishes non-consensually even if I don't like them. Why? ...Iunno.
This troper has wanted a pet velociraptor since she saw it as a little kid. In fact, she rewatched the movies only for the velociraptors. Also, I wanted a pet dragon as a child with long claws and huge, jagged teeth that I could call "Fluffy". On top of that, I have this ... thing ... for the ... unstable. The Joker (he always makes me smile), Rorschach (oh, the lols), River Tam during one of her breakdowns ... Seriously, I wish I could kidnap River Tam, take her to Massachusetts and wait for the Stockholm Syndrome to set in.
There are...so many parts of this Tales page I relate to it's not even funny...almost everything here applies to me. One reaction that creeps out even MY friend, who is supportive to just about everything else, however, is my love of zombies. I'm not a necrophile in any other sense of the word, but if it's a zombie...This Troper gets some very funny feelings while she watches Romero films or plays L 4 D or the like. And it has led to a LOT of Squick for her considering I enjoy drawing them so much. And not just for the look of them, I'm obsessed with turning INTO one. I think it's been a serious fascination ever since I figured out that the drawing on the cover of Robert Twombly's book "ZOMBIES" was the artist himself. Yes, I realize the terrible injuries the zombies get, or rather, the people infected. The fact that I wanna get munched, it scares her even more.
I was watching my friend play through Silent Hill 3, and mentioned that I found the game more "fascinating" than scary. This was BEFORE I knew Vincent existed, let alone that I had basically quoted him.
This Troper seems to have developed this, blood and gore are quite beautiful to her and she enjoys discussing them. Like some of the above tropers she licks any wounds she has for the blood. She also enjoys scaring other people and thinks theirinthropes are adorable.
Dude, you sound exactly like my friend. She's a necrophiliac, licks blood from her wounds, thinks that zombies and such are adorable and that the sight of someone jumping off a building would be "pretty", has a fetish for being eaten alive and likes to go around telling random people that she wants to tear their faces off and wear them as her own.
This Troper just loves sexy monster women. He finds them fascinating to see their nude bodies and their horns, scales, tentacles, and their fangs. He also loves Succubi and wishes that he'd make love to one and die happy.
This Troper found The Enigma Of Amigara Fault absolutely freaking hilarious. Maybe it was just the mindset I was in at the time, but noodle people made from ancient Play-Doh presses carved into a mountain? I just don't see the frightening aspect of this.
I'm not sure if this counts, but... does anyone else think that it's totally adorable when girls are scared? They could be totally freaking out, and it would still be cute... Does that sound too creepy? DX
The sexual component doesn't enter into it, but this Troper, while she is repulsed by blood and gore, is unusually intrigued by sounds that others find extremely disturbing. She loves going through the Hell Is That Noise page, and voluntarily listens to numbers stations for long periods of time.
This troppette is bored, What does she do when she is bored. She goes onto Nothing Is Scarier page and laugh and get bored with some of the things there. (The Wyoming Incident bored and scared me at the same time) I get pleasure from the creepy scaryness of some of the pages on this website. (Nightmare/Scarier et cetera)
This troper finds human corpses in all states of decay, blood, zombies, twincest, screams, torture, murder, and cannibalism to be strangely attractive. I love reading about murders and attempts, the true crime section is my best friend. I also have a medical fetish, if the doctor is in...sane. But strangely all of that only applies when it involves humans, otherwise it's just gross, not scary or sad, just gross. Plus I find things that other people fear to be BEYOND ADORABLE, like spiders, snakes, bats, bugs, and even things like squids and sharks. Abandoned buildings of all kinds and graveyards are imnsho, fantastic places to be.
This Tropette loves the feeling of stuff crawling on her, in fact, she loves Arthropods in general, and always makes sure to gently let insects and spiders out of the house instead of murdering them in cold blood. Oh, and she is very open to the idea of exploring an abandoned house. She finds the sounds the number stations make soothing, and they help her sleep. A lot of the stuff on the High Octane Nightmare fuel page does not scare her in the least.
This troper is a horror-movie fangirl. A lot of the stuff on (the fiction-related parts of) the High Octane Nightmare Fuel pages makes her go "cool!!", she writes horror stories and long essays about favorite monsters and villains, coos over snakes and deep-sea monsters like most people do over kittens, and has a bit of a fangirly squeeing streak over Freddy Krueger and Slenderman. It's good to know that this troper is not alone. (But on the flipside, same troper is also quite Genki and optimistic and tries to always be nice to people. Is that weird of her...?)
This troper is a nightmare fetishist in a platonic sense, if it gives me serious goosebumps, I can't stay away
This Troper loves the thought of having her body heavily modified to the point she can't move, and being used as furniture... or being encased (The carbonite scene from Star Wars is High Octane Fetish Fuel, for instance), or eaten alive, and so on. There's also just odd things like being aroused, on occasion, by trees.
This troper is aroused by reading this page.
Am I weird for finding Mileena from Mortal Kombat sexually attractive?
Not sexual, but I think creepypasta is ...interesting, and I somewhat like watching the killing scenes in horror movies.
At some point, I realized that I routinely read horrible furry porn just so I can laugh at it. And MST it, but mostly the laughing. In fact, my default response to stumbling on horrible imagery on the Internet, like this horribly NSFW number, is to start giggling uncontrollably at how bad it is. I'm not sure if I actually find it amusing or if it's a defense mechanism. BTW, if someone could provide an explanation or context for that image, please do.
Let's just say that if This Tropers family knew the real reason for him plastering his walls with Giger and Dali-prints, they would probably not look at him the same anymore.
The same for if they found the artwork he posts outside of deviatart...
Evil Flippy from Happy Tree Friends. He's just so cute when he's good and even though he can be a bit scary when he goes Ax Crazy I find him to be so damn hot in Ax Crazy mode with the Slasher Smile, crazy eyes, sadism, and bowie knife. The Veteran uniform and the Nice Hat is just icing on the cake! Not to mention the potential Screw Yourself aspects between good and evil Flippy. He's also quite the Woobie.
Seconded! Oh so very seconded.
This troper enjoys reading through all the Nightmare Fuel pages and thinking, "That's supposed to be scary? That's awesome!" She also has a weird habit of finding something on the Internet that scars her for life...and revisiting it again and again until she's completely desensitized to it. Has she mentioned her blood and knife fetishes?
This troper started noticing the full extent of her Nightmare Fetishist tendencies only recently (she's 14 now). (For starters, reading through this page kinda turned her on.) Even though she is such a polite, shy, quiet person in real life who would never hurt a fly (she's, y'know, opposed to murder, torture, and all things bad), her secret morbid joys include looking up SAW traps and torture scenes in movies, or reading about dissections, etc. It's so... thrilling, in a way she could never anticipate - never borne of fear, but just the fascination with the blood, gore, the screams, the suffering... Oh, and she has a passion for Mad Scientists as well. She secretly wants to be able to dissect an animal in Biology class sometime in her high school years. It would be a dream come true. Kukukukuku...
YES. So glad I'm not alone on this. Most ironic thing is the animal part -- I'm a vegetarian!
This troper doesn't have a literal nightmare fetish, but recently realized that I enjoy the thrill of being scared. Oh, and did I mention that I think Cthulu is completely and utterly adorable?
While this troper's interest is not sexual, she thinks creepypasta and Nightmare Fuel is cool. She doesn't get that easily creeped out from them. Also, killing scenes in horror movies are fun~
This troper has a very mild version. She's fascinated by Psychological Horror, Mind Screws, and the darkness of the human mind (despite the fact that she scares very easily because of an overactive imagination). She also has a rather unsettling tendency of becoming attracted to villainous characters. It probably all started with Disney and their villains having sexy voices....
Are you me?
This troper, who is a mild-mannered type, nevertheless probably sits rather uneasily into this category. Based on her fetishes in fiction for the corruptionofheroes (be still my beating heart!) and characters who "enjoy" inflicting pain and seeing others do so, amongst other things such as the powerlessness mind-controlled characters feel, painful transformations, and lashings of blood. And one considers one's self well-adjusted.
This troper feels exactly the same way, and is relieved to see she is not alone. Seriously, are you me?
This tropette likes bloody hands, naughty tentacles, people who lick knives, vampirism, (Teeth in your neck sucking your blood out? Kinky.) and ridiculously long tongues. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding Real Life people that indulge those fetishes, so I'll have to be content with lusting after Orochimaru. *Drools* I'd like to add that helplessness is really, really sexy too. Especially if it's non-consensual. However, if I'm involved, it would only be arousing if I was the helpless one. (Not good with control. At. All.) In addition to that, my kink for sadomasochists (I'm not one myself, but I find them extreeeemlyy hot.) has gotten to such an extreme that I can no longer read any of the relating pages on TvTropes without needing a cold shower afterwards. Ohh yes~
Okay, if you hear something in your apartment tonight, don't worry. It's just me coming to tie you up so tight you can't move,, and leave you there for a few hours, bound, gagged, blindfolded, only able to hear strange sounds you've never heard before and won't be able to place without your sight. Oh, and if I'm feeling nice, I'll leave you a robo-octopus with a... special personality. :3
The robot octopus was a bit of a left-fielder...
I know it's mild compared to most others here, but the eerie pale skinned brunette woman is incredibly hot to this troper. Especially if she's a bit crazy.
This Troper has a self-admittedly strange fetish involving Parasites. However, we are not speaking run-of-the-mill Parasites that exist in Real Life like worms; instead liking biologically impossible ones that reproduce using women and/or physically controlling them while leaving the mind intact. Goa'uld for example do not elicit a response whatsoever, due to their (entirely) internal, non-reproductive and mind-controlling qualities. To think that it all started because of one particular image is an interesting thought to dwell on.
This troper is into nearly any and all kinds of snuff fics, especially if it's consensual.
This troper breaks into a big grin whenever he sees somebody go berserk and beat the shit out of somebody in a movie. But only if the bad guys are receiving the beating; he's not that much of a nightmare fetishist. He also digs girl-on-girl combat to the death, but if anybody he knows is involved, it's an immediate turn-off. Such videos are rare, so it's usually a fantasy anyway...
This troper has a recurring fantasy about taking a drug that leaves him entirely comatose, but still able to respond to, and be aware of everything that is happening to him, in order to have sex with a certain serial killer. He once wrote an incredibly graphic short story about it. He is also fascinated by the whys and wherefores of school shootings, especially the Columbine Massacre, and wants to write the script for a movie about it. Unfortunately, he's British, so would be laughed at.
This troper is a generally docile person, not considered violent by anyone he knows, and not much of a threat at all... in real life. Originally, I thought myself a macrophile, but soon found that it wasn't size, but the aspect of overkill violence that was most intriguing. It's developed from mild masochism to a mix of extreme sadism, macrophilia, muscle worship, and general appreciation of terror. I first caught on when we had a unit on terrorism in my history class. While I feel nervous and terrible even hurting a tiny insect in real life (so I won't be acting on any violent urges non-consensually in this world), I can't find almost anything attractive but complete domination on an incredible scale (sometimes literally). Watching entire cities of puny, helpless people screaming, crying, wetting themselves, begging to be spared, watching as their homes, neighbors, and lives are brought to utter ruin by something that's simply stronger than them... It's just gorgeous to me. Futile attempts at resistance are appreciated, too. I can't really find anybody similarly inclined around here, though, so I typically only talk about it on the internet.
Play some Sims and have fun torturing your digital people.
I especially love denying them the ability to go to the bathroom, and then watching them piss their pants.
This troper, may not be too extreme, but loves blood and creepypastas, to the point where he drastically searches for them. He once got scared by one creepypasta, now it fascinates him. Course, He's kinda minor is some sorts, He can be scared by pop ups(C'mon, if you first saw a pop-up with a cute cuddly cat I bet you'd be scared for a second), and people with blank eyes, after all, NothingIsScarier, right? And, deviantart, 2700 creepypastas?! I am disappoint.
This troper gets, to put it very bluntly, incredibly turned on by fear. Sometimes it's not the content itself, but the emotions it brings about. Even though she's a vegetarian, she loves horror and squick in movies, killers/psychopaths, evil doctors, creepypastas, diseases, eldritch abominations (tentacles!), spiders, vore, gore, BDSM, ghosts, demons, body horror, evil fluffy things, slasher smiles (they make her very tingly), scary noises, vampires, and all manner of real life animals people tend to hate; especially snakes, insects, and rodents (they're ADORABLE). Complete Monsters (especially the literal kind) are the sexiest things ever for her, she doesn't know why, and she loves it. Oh, and you know those cyst popping videos they have on Youtube? No? How about the botfly removal ones? Surgeries and autopsy vids? That Monsters Inside Me show on Animal Planet? She loves those too. Seriously. She could even be considered Nightmare Fuel herself in a way, not to mention she constantly lurks HONF and related pages for new entries. As for men? Tall, dark, skinny, snarky, and sinister, please.
This troper loves the taste of blood. Like the troper above, she adores tall, dark, and sinister men. She can and does spend hours in reptile houses, watching how they move, and loves the feel of scales (on a live animal) against her skin. Heard people complaining about the big scary black cat in the area that liked to fight; stared down at the big purring mass on her lap. One of her favorite accessories was made from a real mink skull, and she has slept for years with a 'gator skull watching over her. The real kicker? This troper is in training to enter the clergy, and had to pass a basic sanity test just to get in.
This trooper has managed to combine an amazing fascination with horror stories with.... being a complete coward. This means staying up nights reading Slenderman blogs and creepy pasta, then waking up every 10 minutes checking the corners of the room for monsters until the sun comes up. I dare not even look under the bed.
This troper fetishes everything to do with scientific experimentation. She loves the tropes Playing with Needles and They Would Cut You Up. However, there is a fine line that she has yet to place exactly between scary stuff she does like and scary stuff she doesn't like. She hates creepypasta stories and any kind of jump scare, for one thing.
After reading some of the entries roughly, this troper found out that he is actually a kind of nightmare fetishist also. He is into mind-control, brainwashing: well, basically this will turn him on on almost any time. Also, he finds snake quite sexy and even seductive in one way that he gets entranced and aroused once before when watching a kind of discovery channel stuff. Snake with mind-control, while he is the victim? He doesn't dare to fantasize so as it will get him too horny to calm down.
But this guy also has a fine line: guro means no: maybe even if mind-control is included.
This troper thinks you're normal. In fact, he even thinks some of the uncanny valley monster girls are sexy.
This Troper, at the age of 4, would always leave at death scenes because she couldn't handle it. Fast forward 10 years later and she is actually dissapointed if nothing bad happens to her favourite character. Also, she will spend days, DAYS looking for torture-related fanfictions starring her favourite characters. There's just something amusing about a lovable character slowly dying a depressing and agonizing death.
This troper has a thing for gore(Her favorite anime/manga is Hellsing, favorite scene being Anderson getting his heart ripped out) morticians/undertakers(I blame Kuroshitsuji) and loved watching Grell Sutcliffe from Kuroshitsuji kill people. Not to mention laughing like a hyena on crack and succesfully convincing her drama teacher she was insane... And don't even get me started on Repo! The Genetic Opera. Not to mention the odd fascination with The Scarecrow from Batman...
This troper has always had an obsessive interest with things that frightened her out of her mind. As a coping mechanism, she would unknowingly conduct self-imposed exposure therapy in order to face her fears, often to the point where she ended up LIKING such frightening things. Such things include(d) natural disasters (tornados, volcanoes), frightening scenery in her favorite Disney movies she watched growing up, deadly monsters, etc. But the most peculiar and specific example is with stomach wounds. As in, wounds feasibly affecting the stomach, not just abdominal wounds in general. This was likely the result of seeing several movies in which people died from a stomach wound and having numerous stomach bugs (and even throwing up blood at age 5 because she had been given Ibuprofen for her fever, and her stomach revolted), thus leading to the horrifying conclusion that a gastric injury CAN kill you, and in a slow and excruciatingly painful matter. Now at age 20, this troper has maintained an obsession with stomach wounds in movies and similar media, feeling some sort of emotional catharsis when certain characters she identified with ended up getting stomach wounds (although she is fairly insistent that the fixation and catharsis do not cross solidly into the territory of a sexual kink, as she wishes it to remain seperate). An oddly SPECIFIC example of nightmare fetishism, indeed; but if you're not frightened (or fascinated with) by the thought of getting shot in the stomach, causing the organic equivalent of battery acid to leak into your abdominal cavity and start burning your surrounding organs, all the while making you vomit blood and pray that you'll bleed to death from a liver injury first before the peritonitis and generalized sepsis kill you...then nightmare fetishism simply doesn't exist.
This troper really, really, really wants to experience sleep paralysis. Hallucinations and everything. She also looks up insects and neurotoxins that cause intense pain and/or paralysis (Tarantula Hawks and Bullet Ants, for example) and thinks 'I wanna try...'
This troper suffers from occasional sleep paralysis. It is not fun, although of course Your Mileage May Vary. Imagine being awake but unable to move or make a sound, while feeling like you're suffocating...yeah, okay, I can see why some people on this page might find that fun.
This troper isn't necessarily turned on by it all the time (sometimes, thouugh), but Nightmare Fuel tends to either elicit a laugh or a "meh". He also has things for bondage, sensory deprivation, asphyxiation, forced Gender Bender, naughty tentacles, and so on. Does that count?
This female troper is turned on by many things that shouldn't... Like humanoids reptiles and bugs, Xenomorphs, Predators, Prawns (from District 9), dragons, monsters, demons, naughty tentacles, vampires, zombies, ghosts, living dolls and dummies, horror movies killers, Disney and kids movies' villains (the darker, the better), werewolfs, creepy characters and many others... She's also turned on by rape scenarios (sometime being raped and sometime being the rapist... Yes, that mean that I've fantasized about raping some of my fav fictionals characters...), and light BDSM scenarios (again with sometime being dominated and sometime dominating)
This troper is something of a SadoMashochist, though leans more on the sadist half. Enjoys reading and writing (but not publishing) fanfiction about certain characters (not just any), usually bad guys, getting what many would call their 'just desserts'. Except it's usually not for a particularly just reason. It is, in fact, my way of displaying my love for a character. Only my utmost favourites get this treatment! (lol) It is something of a fetish of mine, but not something I've told anyone about. I also have a thing for bats and snakes... especially snakes (kukukuku), but just as animals. Nothing... erotic or anything like that. Not my thing. I do, however, consider 'blackrom' (sexual attraction based on hate... blame Homestuck) to be my thing. I find it a facinating concept. I am a masochist in that I find that... pain is easier to deal with if you're not properly opposed to it. If I get a cut, I try to find some pleasure in it and it usually works. Blood of others is also easier to deal with if you're sort of attracted to it, so that's part of my sadism. Also helps with self defense if you're not afraid of hurting your attacker. Ironically, I'm a vegetarian who couldn't hurt a fly... but is ready to inflict as much injury as possible onto any human threat.
This troper wonders where you have been all her life.
This troper is slowly coming to realize how far her neck/nightmare fetish goes. No idea what it is about necks, but everything to do with them... licking, biting, being "collared"... is just insanely hot. Not too weird, right? But then we get into the nightmare part of it: actually drawing blood when biting (vampires, anyone? Especially when the blood drips down the neck during the bite...), ripping out throats, and yes, neck-snappage. The latter is the most recent and strangest part of the fetish... for example, Resident Evil 4 was mostly nightmare fuel until that one cutscene where the huge scary guy follows you into the warehouse, knocks you over, twists the doors together, and then comes after you for the Bossfight. I wasn't quick enough to hit the "dodge" button during the cutscene, and as a result, poor Leon got hoisted into the air by his throat and had his neck snapped. And god damn it, necks being broken should NOT. BE. SEXY. No! Bad Dobby!
This tropette is a... strange example, somewhat. She hates to look at organs, certain creepy images, and can't stand to look at anything scary alone, but she's fond of the supernatural and other creepy things, such as Creepypasta like Slender Man (she also thinks Slendy's kind of hot...) and BEN Drowned (BEN's cute when he doesn't have that realistic Elegy face... she just imagines him as an eyeless Link), but she hates certain other Creepypasta like Jeff the Killer and the smile pic, and also that ONE PICTURE of Squidward in "Squidward's Suicide". She also gets both scared and happy at the possibility of a ghost haunting or supernatural phenomenom, and often fantasizes about a such occurences in her (formerly Japanese cemetery/hospital) school. She likes Ax Crazy Bishonens for some reason, and actually liked Jeff the Killer for once when she saw a picture of him in deviantArt in anime style, it must have been the resemblance to L... and that slasher smile... she must only like anime-style slasher smiles, then. Oh, and SCP Foundation, a series full of Nightmare Fuel entities, is one of her favorite web original stuff.
This troper (tropette?) is rather frighteningly fond of particularly twisted movie villains. Sylar, Hannibal Lector, Loki (the fact that Tom Hiddleston is The Hotness doesn't help), Freddy Krueger... oh boy, that last one made watching Nightmare on Elm Street with my two non-nightmare fetishist friends SO awkward. And God damn it, I KNOW I should hate the villain. They're all so sick and twisted; I mean, Freddy's a god damn CHILD MURDERER/RAPIST for crying out loud. Yet whenever I try and watch the movies, all I can imagine is those knives trailing across your skin... *shiver* My brain hates me. It's official.
In Rapelay if you're not careful one of the girls can stab you during sex. And then stab you about 30 times more, laughing maniacally. It is incredibly hot, in this troper's opinion, though it has given others nightmares.
This troper has a particularly odd kind of nightmare fetishism, an odd type that might be a combination of nightmare fuel and the uncanny valley. Remember the decaying ghost/skeleton/zombie girl on the front of the Goosebumps book "The Curse Of Camp Cold Lake" that everyone always found so terrifying? Well, this troper not only wasn't scared of her, this troper always found her to be INCREDIBLY HOT. His 12 year old self back in 1997 thought of the Goosebumps book covers as silly looking but found this one to be WAY more aesthetically appealing than it was meant to be. His reaction when hearing that she haunted other readers' nightmares was "lucky you". She wasn't his first or last object of nightmare fetishism but perhaps his most unusual by far.
The idea of pain and insanity and no limits or boundaries terrifies and exites this troper. Blood and slasher smiles turn her on and maniacal laughter makes her hot. Bruises and angsty, painful sex is very sexy for me. If it's guy on guy, even better because I have a thing for incredibly rough sex (noncon, dubcon, even rape which is... terrible.... just terrible) and two guys can be rougher when there isn't a girl involved (unless it's me). Sadomasochist here, but I'd say compared to some of the material on this page, neither are the oddest ones out. I enjoy scars and screams. Screaming in pain or pleasure is sexy, but I think maniacal laughter is my favorite. As weird as that sounds, something about the crazy, evil genius types who verge on the line between evil and misunderstood really gets me going. Crazy laughter is just so... attractive. I don't know why.
This troper was watching a special on Theseus and the Minotaur. When it was mentioned that Roman women were forced to reenact the conception of the Minotaur in the Colosseum, he found it very arousing.
This troper got a reputation on a snuff IRC room for being too sick... she's heavily into blood, death, insanity, pretty girls being ripped into pieces, gigantic ultimate Cthulhuan evils, serial killers and hardcore BDSM. Oh, and she's a fulltime sex slave IRL.
This Troper has a bit of a dominatrix fetish, however it is when this is combined with his love of body horror, extreme sadism, a masochistic streak ten miles wide, a blood fetish and his love of werewolves it slides nicely into the territory of nightmare fetishism.
This Troper finds monsters of all shapes and sizes to be beautiful, the more abominable the better (Eldritch Abominations are my favorite). I have a very sadistic taste of romance (which often includes said monsters), a womans screams and pleas are probably a bigger turn on than the binding and torturing (but not to the point of blood and gore, that's like damaging a work of Art to me). The thought of cannabalism makes me hungry. My favorite bands and Musicians include but are not limited to Rob Zombie, Lordi, Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, and Alice Cooper (they make the best love/lust songs). And my favorite characters throughout all fiction are often of the Horrific, Creepy and/or Insane variety (e.g. Alucard/Hellsing, Alex Mercer/Prototype).
This troper has a fetish for monster girls, yanderes, eyeless girls, brother-sister incest, so essentially Nu-13 from blazblue is my dream girl, oh and bondage especcially of the consensual tentacle kind (not on the recieving end though) and while it isn't a fetish of mine, i very much enjoy the works of lovecraft and escher.
This troper is a smart deadpan snarker who loves the idea of being tied up and completely helpless at the hands of an angry SS lieutenent.I am quite submissive, so I enjoy being verbally abused, tied up, and bitten. I love the mere prospet of naughty tentacles, and I find complete psychopaths attractive,and I mean psychopaths like Hannibal Lecter, Vulpes Incunata, and Amon Goeth. I have a fetish for gas masks, and uniforms. I absolutely LOVE Nazi Chic. I enjoy the prospect of a messy vampire bite, with blood everywhere and me enjoying every second of the brutal bite. I also have a major blood fetish. I also love the sound of screaming, specifically, screams of excruciating pain. I've read through the Nightmare Fuel and Paranoia Fules pages multiple times, and I find them fun. I also love the idea of being having a little non-consensual action with a clinically insane person. And I find the idea of a zombie apocalypse extremely interesting.
Not that I'm into it, but somebody here is probably turned on by Adventure Time's Lich. The guy's probably a gold mine for Nightmare Fetishists
This troper has such a thing for blood that she used to get off after cutting herself, and absolutely loves slashed up backs and necks.
This troper likes fight sex, the thought of having sex with tentacles/lovecraftian "horrors" and/or ghosts, knife-play, biting, scratching, BFSM in general, gasmasks, bro/sis incest, urolagnia, monstergirls and aliens. Also add me to the "bats/reptiles are adorable" listI actually feel kinda tame, here. You people sound fun, though!
An odd one here, being prepped up as dinner. Now then, being a vorephiliac,the idea of being eaten is fantastic. But this one goes one or two steps further. Imagine a cute, sexy girl that you have a crush on. Now imagine her tying you to a spit and roasting you over an open flame, shoving an apple in your mouth, putting those little foot booties that you put on the end of turkey legs for decoration, and when you're done, the girl making you her meal. And that's being the dinner. Being the devourer is even better. Just imagining girls roasted to perfection is so nice... Not to mention if you're doing it with a fantastic woman. Ones with nice, curvy figures. Big, juicy, breasts, nice plump rumps, soft, tender thighs... I know that this is a non-reality desire, though. I would never eat a woman if I got the chance. Even if it was legal and she wanted me to. It's still nice to use my imagination though.
It's a platonic case, but this troper finds the Observer from Tribe Twelve to be quite awesome-looking. I'm straight, and it's not really a fetish, but I really love the guy's design. Those glasses are really badass.
This troper believes he might be a sadist, as he REALLY REALLY liked Nana to Kaoru for it's BDSM scenes. This troper also believes that he might (sexually and non-sexually) enjoy power plays of any kind, with either gender, as well as extreme body horror, usually inflicted by young innocents who don't know better. Is this troper correct in assuming that he is a Nightmare Fetishist?
This troper thinks that Mortal Kombat fatalities are some of the sexiest things ever. Baraka vs Mileena... Damn.
This troper is a shy, polite girl with a masochistic streak a mile wide and fetishes that even creep herself out somtimes. She's aroused by the possibility of someone ripping out her teeth without any anesthetic, or the possibility of someone beating the daylights out of her and letting her lie there in a pool of her own blood until they deem that she deserves comfort and aftercare. She has a big thing for being completely dominated, being completely controlled by someone else. She has a big thing for Guro too, specifically eye and mouth mutilation. Headsmashing is great too. She also has a bit of a kink for uniforms and certain jobs, military uniforms and dentists both being an example of each. And when it actually comes down to how she likes it, rough and angry would be her preference.
This troper loves blood (And licking up his own), cannibalism, and war-basedgorn. White phosphorus turning crowds of civilians into clusters of screaming fireballs, cluster bombs removing limbs from everyone unlucky enough to be in their path, hollow point rounds tearing through vital organs, soldiers bawling their eyes out while clutching places limbs used to be, people being reduced to puddles of goop and a red mist by explosives, you name it. Mostly delivered, some recieved, target irrelevant. He finds WWII combat footage and stuff like this to be a point of near-sexual pleasure. Also happens to be a Scalie and is fascinated with snakes, lizards, and other reptillian creepy-crawlies. He, ahem, "Just wants to hug them", and would totally be cool with disemboweling people and eating their organs while they are still alive as a dragon. Oddly enough, BDSM and masochism is a point of disgust for this troper. Huh. Dunno why.
This troper really loves abdomen gore, stuff like tearing out the intestines or pulling ribs apart. No genital hurting or nonconsentual anything though. She's also inclined to cannibalism stuff. Surgical situations invoving dissection are fantastic, but she'll also go for more animalistic mutilation. She also likes feathered wings on humans more than a little, and would gladly bang somebody with impressive wingspan. She's willing to look at a lot of different kinds of gore (tooth ripping being one), but those are the main kinds she's into.
While my kink is a bit more "Low-grade" than most stuff on this list, I still love the conept of soft vore. Just the thought of a woman gulping down a person as big as her and nursing off the growling, glorping, sloshing mass in her belly until it digests and breaks down into nothing just arouses me for some reason. Being able to see the victim struggle and panic just makes it better, too. It weirds me out a bit since I know I don't get off on the suffering of others in real life, but soft vore has always been a big part of my fantasies.
This troper finds an odd atraction to cannibalism. Imagine, a girl with a nice pair of boobs, big and round and juicy. And a nice rump, big and curvy. And a great set of legs to match. Now, imagine her having those little foot booties you put on your turkey, lying down on a plate, with an apple in her mouth, like a roasted pig.Her skin, softly roasted to a golden brown. Such a delicious sight. Oddly enough, (And thankfully) I only find this attractive with cartoon women, and find it rather disturbing when played with actual women.
Is it wrong that the scenes of the 14-year old girl getting killed in Jurassic Park: The Game...kinda turn me on?
This troper is a very peaceful person and will always try to solve problems diplomatically. At the same time, he's a huge fan of Warhammer 40,000 (both games, videogames and novels), Dead Space and many other fictional universes where High Octane Nightmare Fuel and Gorn are the norm, as well as H.P. Lovecraft's work and many others where incomprehensible aliens or dimensions exist. Considers blood, gore, limbs and organs exploding from a well-placed, high-calibre explosive round or a brutal, inmensely powerful claw strike to be amusing, pleasantly realistic, and adrenaline-pumping. This troper is also highly attracted to body augmentation, mutation and daemonic-possesion, specially when it involves becoming a killing machine. Additionally, this troper deeply loves life in all its forms, be it a dog, a bird, a jellyfish, a bush, a camel spider or a fungus, and admires its sheer willingness to survive and thrive anywhere, and fight for its own survival. Because of this, will consider any living thing to be very cute or at least awesome, even if its an arthropod, a reptile, or an alien monstrosity like the Zerg, the Tyranids or the Xenomorphs. This troper is also fascinated about the concept of These Are Things Man Was Not Mean To Know. However, this troper finds torture, sexual/social abuse and depravation in general to be disgusting, and sometimes imagines the perpetrators of such activities anihilated on a orbital bombardment with hypersonic projectiles and terawatts-level laser beams until the planet's crust is part of the mantle, or slaughtered by the troper as an alien monster, a daemonically possesed Space Marine, or a cybernetically augmented agent, all of it following the rythm of a dubstep or metal song. Or just dropped into a black hole.
