A Knight of Cerebus is very likely to be DangerouslyGenreSavvy, an [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]] [[LaserGuidedTykebomb trained for killing]], or even a blatant HeroKiller who posed actual threat, but also runs the risk of becoming a VillainSue. Arguably a subtrope of ThresholdGuardians. See also DeadSerious, NotSoHarmlessVillain. The show may ShooOutTheClowns first. Often, this results in a case of VileVillainSaccharineShow. When this kicks off CerebusSyndrome, his or her arrival is a GutPunch. Sometimes, this type of character, if bad enough, can be a CompleteMonster if they have no redeeming traits and do terrible things by the standards of history in an initially more lighthearted series.

*** What makes it worse? The above [[KnightOfCerebus Knights of Cerebus]] are [[HorrifyingTheHorror SCARED]] of the Tyranids. Because they have the power to completely block out The Warp.

->''That was a very abstract, almost avant-garde episode with Q and what he was trying to prove with the ''Enterprise'', telling Picard to be aware because there are some bad-asses out there that you're not prepared for no matter what you think. This is just a lesson to you to keep your eyes and ears open because there are things out there that you don't understand, and here's an example.''

** Then came the [[OutsideContextVillain Tyranids]]. In their very first attack, they crippled the most well respected Space Marines in the galaxy. In their second, it took both the Eldar AND Humanity working together just to gain a PyrrhicVictory over them. And their third assault STILL hasn't been stopped, [[GodzillaThreshold despite the sacrifice of billions upon billions of humans]]. Every time a Hive Fleet has appeared, the races of the galaxy have had to cross the GodzillaThreshold in order to stop it. EVERY Hive Fleet is treated as an apocalyptic event for the galaxy and these are just the ''[[UpToEleven scouting fleets]]'', the main force isn't even here yet. While every other Race has spent millenia fighting over one galaxy, the Tyranids are implied to have consumed MULTIPLE. This is just their next meal.

* [[BigBad Makuta]] from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' started out [[EvilOverlord menacing enough]], but his constant defeats and failures gradually robbed him of his credibility. After the original head of the Story Team left, the character of Makuta underwent a serious retcon, which resulted in him turning into a [[TheChessmaster calculating]] mastermind who had [[XanatosGambit planned his victory]] from the start, turned out to be the GreaterScopeVillain behind a lot of former villains, and by the end of the story arc, ended up ''[[TheBadGuyWins winning]]''.

* Wrestling/CHIKARA is pretty well known in the wrestling world for being a mostly lighthearted, family-friendly and often comedic wrestling promotion, filled with goofy colourful gimmicks, slapstick comedy routines during matches, and storylines that would not seem out of place in a superhero comic. And then in 2014 along came The Flood, a massive stable of almost every single major villain and rudo-stable the company had ever seen. And leading them was Deucalion, a massive body-armour-clad black-eyed super-soldier in a gas mask who looked more than a little bit like Bane from the Batman comics, with one goal: To destroy CHIKARA and all that it stands for, from the inside out. What resulted was a massive year-long war between The Flood and the technico-wrestlers. Now CHIKARA had seen it fair share of serious villains, such as the BDK and the GEKIDO stables, but there was one major difference: Deucalion was not afraid to kill (in kayfabe, anyway) any wrestler that got in his way, regardless of what side of the war they were on. And he had been responsible for the 'deaths' of six wrestlers before he finally met his demise at the hands of Icarus. To date he is still the darkest and most dangerous wrestler that CHIKARA has ever seen.

* Jimmy Havoc became this for Wrestling/{{Progress Wrestling}} when he turned heel, before that most of the heels were just assholes, Havoc was Ax-Crazy, some of the things he did was threaten to set Mark Andrews on fire for a title match and he tried to cut Will Ospreay's ear off to make a point to the companies management. When he was threatening to set Mark Andrews on fire for a title match someone from the crowd shouted out "you're a psychopath".
