When I was little I used to believe that every night, people who were buried in a cementery, would come out of their graves and kill those who had stayed in the cementery during the night.
That is why for a long time, I was afraid to go to cementeries to avoid getting trapped in there.
I used to believe No-Heart (From the Care Bears) lived behind my shower curtains. I was really afraid to get up at night and would have someone check the curtains before I pee

Background info: My grandmother lives near the dead end of a road. Her house and a few of her neighbors are surrounded by a large forest.
When I was around 5 or 6, my cousin told me that there were cannibals in the forest surrounding my grandmother's house. I believed that for about 5 years.
She said that they were fat, ugly and carried around a chicken drumstick style thing made of human meat.
I was terrified. I still don't go near that forest.
When i was little i used to thnk there was a mosnter hiding in the toilet. In my imagination it looked like a scary red thing with big sharp teeth and glowing eyes,
I thought it was gonna eat me if i wentr in the bathroom by myself so i woke up my parents every night and asked them to check the toilet for monsters. One day i learned monsters are just make believe, they don't exist and thne i stopped beliving in monsters.
Thanks to an episode of Cat Dog, i used to be afraid to sleep because i thought there was a walking pair of scissors that was going to kill me. Whenever i saw the scissor monster in the hallway, i would scream and wake up my parents
As a little kid i used to be afraid to go downstairs because i thought i saw a monster in the living room, later I found out it was only my dad's jacket

When i was a little kid, I used to be afraid to go on the big slide, because my friend convinced that there was a monster hiding in the sand. I was scared to go on the slide for years!
Thanks to "The Lion King" movie I watched as a young child, I was very afraid to sleep because I believed that there were hyenas hiding under my bed. I would throw stuff under the bed so they wouldn't attack me, but i was still scared that they could be hiding somewhere else in my room.
When I was a little kid I used to believe that the power rangers were reals so one while I watched the Rangers I punch the wall of my house believing it would break and obviously I broke my hand.
When I was a child I used to believe that a zombie invasion could happen, I also used to believe that things were given for granted, I used to believe that I could be a great archaeologist like Indiana Jones but now I know is not like that, I remember that I used to believe in the tooth fairy or as I used to call him "el raton Perez" and for last but not least I used to believe that life was real!
I used to be afraid of the hyenas(especially Shenzi, he looked the scariest) from the Lion King. I was really afraid that they would be hiding in my room at night, and that they would eat me in my sleep. I once had a nightmare where one of the hyenas grabbed me by the foot, dragged me under the bed, and they all started tickling me in the dark. It made me really scared and I ended up screaming! To this day, I sleep with my blanket covering my feet!
I was scared to go in the living room at night because the grand piano looked like a monster with legs and long teeth.
When I was a 5 or 6 year old, I was scared of going to the pond. Wanna know why? Because one time when I was at the pond with my babysitter, I tried to pick the lilies in the water.
My babysitter told me that if you pick the waterlilies, a hairy monster with glowing eyes was going to rise out of the pond, and drown me into the water. I was so scared that i never went to the pond for many years, fearing that the "pond monster" was going to drown me. Then after my parents found out, my babysitter never babysat me again.
To this day I have no idea why she told me that..
A friend of mine told his niece about "Sister". A girl who shows up in your bedroom at night. He told his niece that if she sees her to throw a blanket over her and run to her parent bedroom and tell them. Needless to say his sister and brother-in-law were awakened several times in the middle of the night.
I used to believe that there was a broccoli monster that was going to eat me if i didn't eat my broccoli. So i ate as much as i could to prevent the monster from eating me.
