the mistlurkers, or rather, the mistlurker when you do the brew quest for chen and you have to jump down into a cave in karasang wilds.
my heart skipped a beat the first time i saw that thing.
Mor'ladim at level 35 was the most pleasant surprise back in classic, but not sure if he was necessarily terrifying... The overall effect of him in the graveyard and Raven Hill itself made Duskwood one of the best zones in the game, though.
Sergeant Shatterskull and the Arcanist always had your back if you needed to solo Fel Reaver for a SH key. Kinda took the wind out of his sails for me.

Thaddius would get my vote, though Son of Arugal snuck up on me once or twice when leveling and scared the heck out of me.
Only read the 1st page, and I can't believe no one mentioned Hogger.... sigh what is the world (of warcarft) coming to.
Those motherfucking snails in Throne of Thunder
How the hell can a gastropod hit like fucking deathwing on steroids
Most Terrifying NPC in WOW is clearly her.

Back in classic there was a quest in The Hinterlands, where you had to summon the avatar of Shadra (the spider-loa) and kill it. My god that spider was fucking massive.
This is a picture showing how big she was: http://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/screen...rmal/27330.jpg

Stitches pre-Cata. Someone else mentioned running on foot across Duskwood on that dimly lit path. That was always horrifying back in the day. Werewolves and ghouls jumping out from the bushes, huge spiders and wolves chittering and howling on either side. And if that weren't enough, you have the added issue of Stitches and Mor'Ladim, elite patrolling mobs too high level to know. Those two were definitely the scariest thing ever in WoW.
Edit because someone mentioned Son of Arugal, also terrifying. All of those guys pre-cata who were elite and way higher level than the rest of the stuff in the zone. The Nightmare dragons.

Hmmm...Blood of Heroes. Wonder what this is?
Sara yelling in Ulduar.
Honourable mention for the old Kel'thuzad evil laugh in Naxx 1.0.
Fel Reaver scared the shit out of me in the early TBC days, he was one sneaky bastard for a giant robot. Of course by todays visual settings/standards, you see him coming an hour away.
Thaddius' lore is pretty damn creepy.
“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence...”
