* Also the eponymous character of ''Comicbook/GhostRider''; not much scarier than a leather-clad demonic biker with a {{Flaming Skull|s}} head that can kill you with a look.

** Guts himself is a monstrously large amputee with an even larger sword with a demonic wolf roosting in his psyche that gets let loose through Skull Knight's old armor which has been retrofitted to it's new host. It's implied that if he keeps down this path, Guts will become just like Skull Knight, an undead warrior in an endless battle against the Godhands' forces

* A nebbishy janitor is transformed into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength after falling into a vat of nuclear waste. Though a monster, he realizes that with his newfound power, he can clean up the crime and corruption that has overtaken his city. Thus is Film/TheToxicAvenger born.

Characters which qualify as a Horrifying Hero include the EldritchAbomination, {{Cthulhumanoid}}s, {{Humanoid Abomination}}s, StarfishAliens, a LivingShadow, a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demon]] and other such things which by their very nature are normally if not ObviouslyEvil, then ObliviouslyEvil. Characters which appear human part of the time ''can'' qualify, but only if their alternate form is such a thing, and is consistently described as NightmareFuel, not just weird or ugly in appearance, and they generally need the powers to match. After revealing the character's true nature, a person would have to be a NightmareFetishist and crazy to boot to find the character appealing.

* Jack Skellington, the skeletal Pumpkin King from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'', is the local hero of HalloweenTown. His misguided attempt to take up the role of SantaClaus doesn't go over well with the residents of Christmas Town, to say the least.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' has the Skull Knight, who is an undead, skeletal knight riding a HellishHorse. His speech is rendered in the manga the same way as the speech of the demonic Apostles or the Godhand. More than one character who has met him has been absolutely terrified to be in his presence, and at least once he was mistaken for an avatar of Death itself. Despite all this, he is the closest thing the series has to a BigGood, and has been nothing but heroic in his deeds (although it has been implied that he might have been far more nasty in his past).

He also literally eats the resident [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts of Doom]] for breakfast.
