* 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''
-->--'''Jack Skellington''', ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas''

* 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.

* Batman. Yeah, Batman, the Dark Knight himself. He's seen as a demon to most criminals, and the ones who don't will see him as one after an encounter with him.
** Becomes a greater extent in the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'', [[spoiler: where he's pushed into near insanity. Even worse, by ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity,'' '''he's infected with Joker's blood''', transforming him into Joker himself.]]
*** If that's not horrifying, then I don't know what is.



* Skitter, in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', is a teenage girl with total control over every insect in a massive radius. She regularly covers herself in insects to give herself the appearance of TheWormThatWalks and normal battle tactics involve stuffing insects down people's throats. It's no wonder that the first superhero she runs into thinks that she's a supervillain!
