That damn piano in Mario 64 still makes me jump a bit.

Lol me too! I will never forget when I turned the corner and saw Boo floating in the hallway for the first time. I had to be only 7, but I turned off my 64 and my heart was racing

I didn't play Mario 64 as much as I should have but that Eel underwater sure did scare me.

Monster Party was definitely scary... I don't think I got much further than he did when I played it

Final Fantasy 8 really scared me when i was a kid. Main reason couldnt get past the Training ground because a Dino would suddenly appear

These guys scared me, as well as gave me severe anxiety when I was about 5 years old.
