* In chess, or in any type of competitive game, the Kubrick Stare is a common tactic used by players to intimidate, annoy, confuse, or discomfort their opponents. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Tal Mikhail Tal]], the Eighth World Chess Champion, was a chess player well known for his stares. It also didn't help his opponent's case that Tal was a tactical genius like no other on the chessboard. One of Tal's opponent's, Pal Benko, was so uncomfortable with Tal's gaze that he wore sunglasses during a game to avoid it. [[http://d1lalstwiwz2br.cloudfront.net/images_users/tiny_mce/Snow_Lion/phpxVqfRC.jpeg Watch]] the reaction of one of Tal's opponents to his Kubrick Stare.

Expanded on the Twelth Doctor (Live-Action TV).

*** Becomes a trademark of Twelve's, particularly toward the end of Series 9. Considering the DarkerAndEdgier nature of this Doctor and his particular [[TraumaCongaLine story arc]], plus [[Creator/PeterCapaldi the eyebrows]], it's really to be expected.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' characters do this quite a lot, usually right before Kicking it UpToEleven but most notably Goku first goes Super Saiyan 3. This tends to be Frieza's default expression.
