* Arguably the Necrons of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the only race in existence with a working game plan to permanently destroy Chaos -- a sentient [[TheDarkSide dark side]] that operates by TheCorruption when it isn't taking matters into its own hands. Necrons are the entities that ''daemons'' are theoretically scared of, though Daemon players aren't usually scared of Necron players in practice.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'': Umbral dragons and cairn linnorms are notable for hunting TheUndead as their favored food source. Of the two, umbral dragons prefer to feed on incorporeal undead such as ghosts and specters, while cairn linnorms, which cannot physically interact with ectoplasm, stick to the corporeal kind. That said, both will happily feed on humans if no better meal presents itself.



* ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'': Amoeboids and it is pretty much all they do.

* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', even Nines, the badass leader of the Anarchs vampires, is terrified of werewolves. [[spoiler:The one you have to deal with in Griffith Park near the endgame can kill you in four or five hits, and shrugs off even your most powerful weapons - [[PuzzleBoss you need to find a special way to kill it]]]].

* A certain urban legend holds that the benevolent [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pholcidae cellar or daddy-long-legs spider]] (that long-leggity beastie that lurks in ceiling corners and vibrates when you get too close) has the most potent venom of any spider, but can't bite through human skin. The Food Chain of Evil is one possible explanation: cellar spiders prey on other spiders, including black widows, ergo cellar spiders must be even ''worse''. Regardless, there's no evidence to this claim.

* Galactus was first introduced by showing the Skrulls, some of the most threatening villains the Fantastic Four had faced up until then, terrified of him and doing their best to conceal their home planet so he wouldn't find and eat it.

* In ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'', any vampire of a sufficiently low generation can develop the Elder's Thirst: they can only feed on other vampires. Their capacity for holding blood can be ten times that of a neonate, so when they're running on empty it takes a lot to fill them up. Luckily vampire blood is much more filling. Being so ancient and all-powerful these guys are walking {{Deus Ex Machina}}s. Most vampires in the setting live in fear of [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Gehenna]], when the Antediluvians will rise from torpor to devour their offspring.

** Possibly a JustifiedTrope in this case, since they admit afterwards they used to scare him for a hobby.
