* In the MarvelUniverse there was The Fury, a robot created by an insane RealityWarper for the express purpose of killing all the heroes of an [[AlternateReality alternate Earth]]; it succeeded almost completely.

* In the ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'', the current [[BigBad Eggman]] (actually an alternate version of the first one), was this, managing kill his version of Sonic and the Freedom fighters, and when he first made his big return he conquered Mobotropolis and forced the Mobians to retreat back to Knothole, effectively resetting the series status quo to before Robotnik Prime died, though [[VillainDecay since then he's gone back and forth between how much a threat he posed]]. A more extreme case is the alternate timeline where Knuckles became a new [[PhysicalGod Enerjak]]. He became so powerful that he single handily conquered Mobius and defeated every hero and villain that tried to stop him, even Sonic becoming Super Sonic wasn't enough to stop him. Pretty much the only reason why the Freedom Fighters are around in his timeline when Silver shows up there is because [[ItAmusedMe he let the Freedom fighters roam around for his amusement]].

* DC has ''tried'' to do this with ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}}. For the past few years he's been pushed as one of the top villains of the DCU, on par with ComicBook/LexLuthor and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. He actually ''has'' managed to kill a couple of heroes, including Phantom Lady and the third [[ComicBook/TheAtom Atom]] (and in the trailer for ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'', he ''almost'' kills Franchise/{{Batman}}). Unfortunately, while his powerset (he's basically an evil ComicBook/CaptainAmerica with a healing factor thrown in[=/=]SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} with sanity) should make him utterly terrifying to normals and low-level metas, it's a little more difficult to accept him as a serious threat to the likes of Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/GreenLantern. His victories against big-name heroes tend to depend on his opponent firmly grasping the IdiotBall and refusing to let it go (e.g. [[ComicBook/TheFlash Flash]] running straight onto his sword; Green Lantern deciding to ''swing punches'' at him instead of flying off and using a ring construct from a distance; or Superman [[ForgotICouldFly apparently forgetting how his own powers work]]). Fans have joked that Deathstroke's secret power is a "{{jobber}} aura" that makes his opponents behave like morons.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' has a straight version of this trope in the form of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. He outright murders former GCPD officer Brian Douglas (one of the vigilantes wearing a Batman costume), kills several known Gotham City cops and other law enforcement [[spoiler:including Commissioner Loeb and Rachel Dawes, and finally causes Dent to slide off the slope of sanity, leading to several more deaths, including Dent's own]].

* Part of Rita Repulsa's AdaptationalBadass in ''Film/PowerRangers2017'' involved being a member of a past team of [[TheNameless Power Rangers]] that she turned on and wiped out but for Zordon, who, in the face of defeat, chose to [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled call a meteor down on his own location]] and [[TakingYouWithMe try to catch her in the blast radius]]. The fact that she was strong enough to take down a full Ranger team on her own increases the urgency of the new team's training when she re-emerges, as Zordon's surviving consciousness is perfectly aware of what she's capable of and knows the new Rangers have to be as strong as possible to survive against her, let alone stop her from conquering the world.

** Darth Vader. In [[Film/ANewHope the first film]], he kills Obi-Wan Kenobi in a lightsaber duel and cuts down numerous Rebel pilots during their assault on the Death Star. In [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack the second]], he he cuts off [[TheHero Luke's]] hand and has [[LoveableRogue Han Solo]] [[HumanPopsicle suspended in carbonite]]. In the prequels, he double teams [[spoiler: Mace Windu]] with [[BigBad Palpatine]] [[spoiler: and slaughters a whole class of youngling Jedi.]] In the expanded universe he hunts down and defeats numerous Jedi as well.

** In ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', Victor Creed murders about 80% of the cast. [[spoiler: His resume includes: Wolverine's OnlyFriend John Wraith, Wade Wilson (though Stryker somewhat brings him back brainwashed), Silverfox, twice. Bradley and finally Blob (at least that's what's implied by his dialogue with Wraith). Meaning the only main cast members he never killed were Wolverine, Gambit, Agent Zero and Stryker.]]

** Ramsay Snow/Bolton outdoes his already terrifying book version, starting off by doing ''much'' worse to Theon Greyjoy than just killing him. He then nearly gets Theon's ActionGirl sister in season 4 (despite Ramsay being half-naked, ambushed and post-coital at the time) and personally smashes King Stannis' army in season 5. He becomes this trope in S6, though, when he remorselessly kills [[spoiler:his own father, stepmother and newborn baby brother. A couple of episodes later, he easily dispatches fan favourite Osha too. This is followed by killing Rickon Stark in the Battle of the Bastards.]] His kill count of unnamed characters is through the roof, and that's not even counting his offscreen destruction of the main characters' childhood home.
** Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane is the strongest man in the Seven Kingdoms and is notorious for raping and killing Elia Martell and her children during the Sack of King’s Landing. He’s also responsible for maiming and killing Ser Beric Dorrandion though [[BackFromTheDead he got better]] thanks to Thoros of Myr. When Elia’s brother, Oberyn, dueled him in a TrialByCombat and nearly bested him, Gregor got the advantage to bring him down [[spoiler:and crushed his head]]. However, Gregor ended up braindead by Oberyn’s poison so [[MadScientist Qyburn]] turned him into some HumanoidAbomination who became Cersei’s loyal bodyguard.

* Evan when dealing with real heavy hitters like ADAM, every fight against an Angel on ''FanFic/NobodyDies'' had been a cavalcade of CrazyAwesome for various "seasons". So how do the Cherubim establish that they are the KnightOfCerebus team? By having the very first one that appears take on various Evangelions at the same time and win even with them using SuperMode, [[OnlyMostlyDead killing Shinji for a few seconds]] and nearly destroying Unit-01's core. It took the uncontrolled activation of Unit-01's Berserk Mode for NERV to win the fight... and the repercussions were still pretty hefty.

** [[HumanoidAbomination the White Walkers]] and their army of the wights, led by [[GreaterScopeVillain the Night’s King]]. At the start of the series, they demonstrate their [[TheDreaded dreadedness]] by killing two Night’s Watch rangers and turning them into wights. Later on, they raid Hardhome and slaughter many wildings. In Season 6, they kill several Children of the Forest [[spoiler:,Bran’s direwolf Summer, and Hodor]] with the Night’s King personally killing the Three-Eyed Raven. And by the end of Season 6, winter has finally come and the army of the dead marches south, ready to take out whatever’s left of the main cast.
