* 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.

** There's also the main villains, a group called Millennium. Even the lowliest mooks of that army are [[EatsBabies baby-eating]] [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Nazi troops turned into artificial vampires]].

* Blackwatch soldiers from ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}''. Possible infectees are shown no mercy. In ''VideoGame/{{Prototype2}}'' they're given a makeover to make them even ''scarier''.

They're given a makeover to make them even ''scarier''.''scarier'', but they are also humanized a lot more. So they're scarier for civilians, but less scary for the player.

** 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.

* In the short story ''The Dragons of Summer Gulch'' by Creator/RobertReed, the protagonist is a veteran of a doom squadron from an old war. The troops were fitted with scary, fantastically expensive armor crafted with Kevlar and fossilized dragon bones, making it effectively immune to bullets. The squadron would simply pick up a big scary guns and ''walk'' toward enemy positions to scare them off before slaughtering anyone dumb enough to not run away. However, the protagonist said that by the end of the war, those who hadn't been gibbed by cannon fire, [[EyeScream lucky shots]], or hit with dragonbuster ammo were paranoid, broken men.

* The Coalition States of ''Rifts'' used to distribute suits of black body armor with an intimidating gas-mask stylized like a skull. Then they replaced those with suits of body armor sculpted to LOOK like a human skeleton.
* ''Tabletopgame/BattleTech'' has the various special operations groups, but particular note goes to the Death Commandos of the Capellan Confederation and the Manei Domini of the [[ChurchMilitant Word of Blake]]. The Death Commandos have the authority to execute any Capellan citizen and [[FeudalFuture even nobility]] in certain circumstances. Their battlemechs are painted flat black with occasional green trim, and do not utilize the Capellan flag, instead using only their skull unit insignia. The Manei Domini are all [[CyBorg heavily augmented]], brutal and fanatic warriors from a nation famed for its [[OrbitalBombardment brutality and fanaticism]]. The Manei utilize their own series of battlemechs armed with the best technology available. Bonus points go to those units who utilize the [=AS7-D=] ''Atlas'', a mech [[WeaponForIntimidation designed for intimidation]] with a [[SkeleBot9000 white, skull-shaped cockpit]] and often fitted with [[GlowingMechanicalEyes glowing red eyes]].

* ''StarWarsBattlefront'' introduces the 501st, Palpatine's personal legion. In the movies you might remember them as the blue-striped troopers that Anakin led to the Jedi Temple. They also include the Dark Troopers, hulking cyborg troopers that were first introduced in ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Dark Forces]]''. They wear armor similar to the Iconic Stormtrooper Armor, but painted black.
* ''TheSaboteur'' has Nazi version.

* Invoked in ''Videogame/PlanetSide 2'' for the [[TheEmpire Terran Republic]]. The TR aesthetic blends [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red and black/grey]] and GasMaskMooks, which is ramped up to eleven with the Player Studio cosmetics; red GlowingMechanicalEyes, gas masks, faceless blank visors, and skull motifs are common. The Terran MAX in particular always sports either glowing red eyes or a featureless red visor, ShouldersOfDoom, and twin rapid-fire arm cannons in many flavors. However, the TR are no more dangerous than the narmy [[FutureSpandex spandex-wearing]] Vanu Sovereignty or the denim-wearing space hillbilly New Conglomerate.
