Sometimes called "intimidation", Fear Projection is a term used to describe the ability of some characters to project the fears of others in a number of ways. In most cases, the fear is projected only to the target which causes them to hallucinate their worst fears.
In certain cases, the fear of the target comes to life as an illusion. Projecting nightmares into reality is sometimes misunderstood as Fear Projection. Scarecrow's Fear Toxin uses this ability on it's victims.
