* Even animals can give the Death Glare, as indicated by this famous quote by Robert Ruark on the Cape Buffalo:Buffalo. [[LightningBruiser The Cape Buffalo is perhaps the deadliest animal in Africa.]] Just do '''not''' mess with it.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsAbeYpK-6w Here's]] possibly the greatest staredown of all time.
* Reportedly, Creator/MichaelBay was talking to USAF helicopter pilot [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Characters_in_Transformers_(film)#Decepticons Maj. Brian Reese when one of his subordinates walked by]] singing the theme song of ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice''. The Death Glare he gave the other resulted in Bay casting him as [[{{Film.Transformers}} the Moustache Man]]

* Legendary Canadian Kickboxer, Jean Yves Thériault was so well known for his ice cold stare during a fight -particularly the stare down- that he earned the nickname "The Iceman" because of it. You can hear commentators mention it during some of his fights. Seeing as he's considered one of the greatest kickboxers to ever live, one can imagine it wasn't a pretty sight for his opponents.

** Meowth himself gave a one-off villain a ''hilariously'' furious one before [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome slashing the crap out of him]], to the point of ''[[ClothingDamage shredding the guy's clothes off]].''

* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' story ''Fanfic/SupermanOf2499TheGreatConfrontation'', Sybilla gives one to [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Lorile]] after picking a fight with her and getting soundly trashed.
-->Beams of hate as hot as heat-vision went from Sys eyes to Loris as she lay there, gasping, on the floor.



* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': Kurt Hummel has a pretty impressive one of these at the best of times. It's been called the "Kurt Hummel Bitchface" on more than one occasion. Combine it with a barely-arched eyebrow and a serial-killer head tilt and [[AlphaBitch Rachel Berry]] will get the message and back off, eventually. In a rather chilling example: When Kurt and Blaine dance at the end of "Prom Queen," it's a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming -- except for the part where everyone who isn't [[TrueCompanions the New Directions]] is dead silent and stone-faced.

* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'': During her MamaBear moment, Amy gives Silver a look that essentially says "take one step forward and I'll kill you right here and now." This becomes a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when you realize that she, a mere BadassNormal, made a powerful psychokinetic back off with that look.

** It's actually a plot element in "Stare Master". Fluttershy is somewhat renowned for this ability of hers, but she cannot control it. It may sound funny, but the Stare seems to possess nigh-hypnotic properties, able to break the will of any creature meeting it. This ranges from [[MundaneUtility rounding up some disobedient chickens]] to [[spoiler: staring down a cockatrice, [[TakenForGranite a creature with the power of turning living beings to stone with a glare]], until it folds and gives life back to its victims. That's right, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Fluttershy's Death Glare reduced into submission a monster with an actual]] MagicalEye.]]
