** The Ark of the Covenant proves to be an equal-opportunity DoomsdayDevice in 1 Samuel 4-7. The Israelites bring the Ark onto the field of battle, which scares the Philistines into fighting harder instead. They capture it, then make the mistake of keeping it in the same room as an idol of Dagon. God breaks the statue and smites the Philistines with a plague of tumors and rats. The Philistine cities play hot potato with the Ark for a while before sending it back to Israel with a guilt offering. Aaaand the Israelites promptly have a whole bunch of people die from looking into the Ark.

* TheAce: David, arguably. He was a {{Badass}} warrior that brought down a giant [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu that may or may not have been partly-angelic, he was a poet credited with writing a good portion of the Psalms, and even ''God'' called him "a man after [God's] own heart."
** BrokenAce: But as with just about every major player in the Bible, his flaws and missteps are also apparent.
