* Krieg the Psycho, the second DLC character in ''Borderlands2''. As if looking like a slasher movie villain and having the most agressive style and most gruesomely disturbing abilities of all Vault Hunters weren't enough, [[TalkativeLoon he doesn't really help his case when he tries talking.]] Calling him a hero is a bit of a stretch since he mostly cares about satisfying his bloodlust, yet he actively helps the Vault Hunters by fighting alongside them, and is even ready to put his life at risk for his allies - best emphasized by some of his quotes when reviving teammates ("You're in my spot !") and his ability Redeem The Soul that instantly revives an ally at the cost of downing him ("You don't die, I DIE !").

* Series/UltramanGeed is the son of [[SatanicArchetype Ultraman]] [[BigBad Belial]] and looks a lot like his demonically twisted father. This is rather problematic, as it means 75% of the population is scared of him and uncertain of whether or not he's a good guy, despite him being TheCape personality wise. [[spoiler:It takes kicking his old man's butt in front of all of Japan for them to finally realize he's the good guy.]]

** [[TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters Sin-Eaters]], as far as supernatural beings go, usually are fairly benevolent, being essentially medium trying to help ghost move on in the afterlife. But since they are ex-dead people who were brought back to life by disturbing ghost-like creatures who then share their bodies, and use multiple ghost-like abilities, they tend to be seen as not exactly reassuring. One of the texts in ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil'' supplement ''Mortal Remains'' describes a group of them fighting as seen from a regular joe's perspective; the description is absolutely horrifying, and insists on the fact the soldiers they had come to save end up almost just as traumatized as their enemies.

* Cú Chulainn, the young hero of the Ulster Cycle of Myth/CelticMythology, particularly of the ''Literature/TainBoCuailnge''. Though he is portrayed as being as {{Bishonen}} as a teenaged [[FightingIrish Irish]] [[FieryRedhead ginger]] can be, he is a descendant of either the [[TheFairFolk Tuatha Dé Danann]] Lugh or the Fomorians, a monstrous race from the mythic prehistory era of Ireland. Though he is heroic and stalwart, and generally perceived as a good guy, his defining mystical characteristic is his ability to transform into various disfigured superpowered abominations through the use of his warp-spasm. After [[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry he transforms]], he becomes a [[TheBerserker berserker]] that slaughters anything in his path, friend and foe alike. Even ''out'' of his warp spasm, he is described in the '' Táin'' as having MulticoloredHair, four multicolored dimples in each cheek, seven pupils in each eye, and seven clawed fingers and toes on each hand/foot.

* In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3789240/1/Real-Life Real Life]] this is the reason for [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Dannys]] [[HeroWithBadPublicity bad publicity]], he triggers an instinctive fear response in humans whether he wants to or not.

** It is mentioned that the Primarch Vulkan and his Salamanders would often terrify those they came to save, what with their obsidian-black skin with the texture of rock, glowing red eyes, and penchant for burning everything in their path. Despite this, Vulkan was known as one of the kindest and most caring of all the Primarchs, and the Salamanders uphold his legacy of doing their utmost to protect the Imperium's citizens, and do not ignore those in need of help.

->''There are few who'd deny, at what I do, I am the best\\
For my talents are renowned far and wide\\
When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night\\
I excel without ever even trying\\
\\
With the slightest little effort of my ghostlike charms\\
I have seen grown men give out a shriek\\
With a wave of my hand and a well-placed moan\\
I have swept the very bravest off their feet\\
\\
Yet year after year, it's the same routine\\
And I grow so weary of the sound of screams\\
And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King\\
Have grown so tired of the same old thing''

* In the early runs of ''LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemon'', some interpretations of [[LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemonRed Red]] had him as a [[OurLichesAreDifferent lich]] controlled by a very large amount of bickering spirits. Later protagonist [[LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemonHeartGold Ao]] would be a walking anomaly that glitched the world around her, and it was speculated that her presence in Johto was the reasons why Pokemon in the area didn't act the way they usually did.
