A Fatal Frame shot is achieved when a ghost is in the midst of attacking, and the orb at the top of the camera glimmers red. This shot does the most damage and receives the most points out of the other 2 basic shots, being a normal shot, or a shutter chance. The effects of the shot propels the ghost and allows the player to get much more fatal frame shots by doing combos.
- The name of this shot is the same name as the American release of 零～Zero～.
- The only ghost that does not get propelled from the Fatal Frame shot, or any other shot for that matter, is the Stroller Grandma and dolls like the Watashi.
