** The new Primaris Marine elite unit, the Reivers, take the intimidation factor of regular Marines and crank it UpToEleven. The faceplates of their helmets are crafted to resemble skulls and have vox amplifiers built in that turn the Reivers' battle-cries into ear-shattering howls, and the Reivers themselves use grav-chutes and {{Grappling Hook Pistol}}s to infiltrate behind enemy lines and wreak havoc with [[MoreDakka rapid-firing bolt carbines]], [[HandCannon oversized heavy bolt pistols]], and [[KnifeNut enormous, wickedly sharp combat knives]]. They're essentially the modern Imperium's answer to the old Night Lords Terror Squads.

* ''Fanfic/TiberiumWars'' presents the [[WarriorMonk Black Hand]] as these; when a GDI infantry squad encounters a squad, the corporal in command completely flips out in terror at the sight. Later on, when a Black hand unit ambushes a GDI convoy, the mere ''sight'' of the Hands is enough to terrify a GDI officer into paralysis.

Later on, when a Black hand unit ambushes a GDI convoy, the mere ''sight'' of the Hands is enough to terrify a GDI officer into paralysis. [[TheDreaded The reputation]] is well-deserved. Between [[KillItWithFire the weapons]] [[FrickinLaserBeams the Black Hand use]] and the [[ImmuneToBullets ridiculously strong armor they wear,]] the fact that the corporal survived the engagement at all and managed to kill one of the Hand in single combat is seen as impressive.

* Cerberus troops in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''. In the Omega DLC, the Rampart Mechs are meant to weaponize this trope for the purpose of policing the locals on [[WretchedHive Omega]] after Cerberus took over: they commandeered a load of cheap mechs from a mercenary outfit, up-armored them to make them bulkier, painted them black, and fitted them with infrasound and scent markers that are "fight or flight" triggers for several species. The mechs even have a function to vent excess heat for further intimidation.

* In ''FanFic/QueenOfShadows'', the Gani tribe (Crab Khan) are primarily used as guards to frighten human slaves out of trying to escape, and as shock troops to send specific messages of fear at the enemy.

You can tell by looking at them, these are no ordinary {{Mooks}}. Every aspect of them is designed for maximum intimidation; their boots strike the ground with a despair-inducing ''tromp'' and their [[VaderBreath loud breathing]] sends chills up the enemy's spines. Their uniforms are black, possibly emblazoned with skulls, and [[GasMaskMooks almost always have a mask that makes them seem less human]]. Enemy soldiers would rather surrender than fight them, but they are trained to show no mercy. Every action they take is meant to induce MookHorrorShow in the RedShirtArmy and civilian populace.

* Aku created a whole horde of robot assassins like this in the Samurai Jack episode "Samurai versus Samurai", but despite their ghastly appearance (skulls for heads with gems as eyes, using knives as weapons), they really weren't much better than the rest of his MechaMooks. (After Jack destroyed them all, the pieces pulled themselves together into a giant junk-monster, but that was only slightly more formidable.)
