** Killing intent is actually the entire reason your attacks damage monsters at all. As a result, bosses in a [[KillEmAll No Mercy run]] tend to be {{One Hit Kill}}ed. Conversely, in a PacifistRun, when Undyne challenges you to a rematch during her "date", you'll deal only 1 damage whether you use the "Fake Hit" command or Fight her for real, because to even get to this point you have to go out of your way to never kill anyone.

* This is the implied reason Bando from ''Anime/ElfenLied'' is able to sense and predict Lucy's [[CombatTentacles vectors]] even when he has no prior experience (or even knowledge) of what a Diclonius is capable of: Lucy's immense hatred for humanity and desire to wipe them out bleeds into her vectors, which are otherwise invisible and selectively-tangible. Bando can't see her vectors directly, but due to his combat training and own [[BloodKnight love of life-and-death combat,]] he can get a sense of when and where Lucy's attacks are coming from.

* In ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'', every martial artist senses or projects killing intent at one time or another. On at least one occasion, Sakaki has blown away an entire room of people. And with discipline level fighters it can be used to make the opponent lock up and break their focus.

* Nagisa from ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' can freely intimidate or paralyze his opponents by emitting killing intent. He once used it, along with a single (theoretically nonthreatening) sentence and a calm smile, to send middle-school bullies home in tears; he's also used it in combat to [[OhCrap scare the living daylights]] out of elite, trained government special ops soldiers. For the record, Nagisa is a small, kindhearted, fairly unremarkable middle school student in a bottom-rank class, and is so physically dainty that he's [[DudeLooksLikeALady been mistaken for a girl several times]]. It should be noted that his killing intention is more of a natural talent. It is commented that he is born with talent at the wrong era. Had time been different, he would have been an assassin without equals.

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', people who are very good at killing can identify others like them upon looking at them, and sense their desire to kill. Josef is using it as a SpiderSense of sorts, telling him when to treat a fight seriously.

* Present for one moment of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency'', when [[OldMaster LisaLisa]] is about to fight [[BigBad Kars]], and notes that she can't detect his Killing Intent. [[spoiler: [[WorthyOpponent Despite his earlier claims]], [[SubvertedTrope he never intended to fight her fairly]] for the Macguffin, and instead has a mook ambush her mid fight while he hides, so he can attack her from behind, claim the Macguffin, then sic his zombie army on Joseph.]]

* Nico di Angelo demonstrates a ''weaponized'' version of this in the last book of Heroes of Olympus. When someone threatens to have one of his friends executed, he strips him of his identity and sends him to the Fields of Punishment through willpower alone.
