* The [[SemperFi United States Marine Corps]] has such a reputation in some circles. They've spent the last hundred years [[MemeticBadass fine tuning their reputation]] as a force to be feared on the battlefield, both by deed and by urban legend. You'd never suspect that they are the smallest branch of the US military. Within the Marine Corps, there is Marine Force Recon and MARSOC (which traces its roots to the Marine Raider Battalions of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII), for the more elite troops.

** In ''Film/RogueOne''. the Imperial Death Trooper carries this role with their sleek jet black armor, green headlights and spec-ops like appearance. Even [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast their name spells death]].

** Their predecessors, the Separatist battle droids, were made [[{{Skelebot9000}} in the likeness of alien skeletons]]. However, their stupidity and incompetence made them fail as Doom Troops utterly and completely (it didn't help that technical limitations resulted in the aliens in question being shaped differently enough from the droids that it wasn't obvious from the films that the droids were supposed to look like their skeletons). In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', the common "Roger-Roger" battle droids are, in fact, comic relief. Then they introduced the B2 super battle droids, which are much bulkier and more menacing than the B1's.

Namely, their blasters are mounted on a SuperWristGadget and they can march and shoot with their right hands outstretched, which gives them the appearance of zombies and Nazi troops giving a Sieg Heil salute. The red eyes and scowling faceplate don't help either.

* In ''TabletopGame/BlueRose'' the [[EvilOverlord Lich King of Kern]] is served by the [[BlackKnight Knights of the Skull,]] who wear black armour with silver skull-shaped helmets. He also has a Secret Police, who normally don't draw attention to themselves ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin being secret and all]]) but who evoke great fear when they do wear their official red leather uniforms.
