Trivia

  • Since the introduction of The PigIconHelpLoading pigIconHelpLoading pigIconHelpLoading pig, the Terror RadiusIconHelp terrorRadiusIconHelp terrorRadiusIconHelp terrorRadius gradually fades away instead of being instantly gone after Insidious becomes active.
  • The Killer still makes breathing noises while under the effect of Insidious, which is a way for attentive Survivors to still notice their presence.
  • Before Insidious was updated with the Undetectable Status Effect, the description mentioning stealth confused many Players and led to beliefs such as the Killer turning invisible, rather than just masking their Terror Radius and Stain.
    • Some languages even mistranslated the stealth to mean invisibility, further increasing the confusion.
  • Using a Killer's Power will automatically cancel Insidious.
    • However, moving your camera around, stalking Survivors as The ShapeIconHelpLoading shapeIconHelpLoading shapeIconHelpLoading shape or The Ghost FaceIconHelpLoading ghostIconHelpLoading ghostIconHelpLoading ghost or phase-walking as The SpiritIconHelpLoading spiritIconHelpLoading spiritIconHelpLoading spirit will not cancel Insidious.
    • Setting a Bear Trap as The TrapperIconHelpLoading trapperIconHelpLoading trapperIconHelpLoading trapper will not cancel Insidious either.
  • Insidious does not affect Hums or Lullabies.
