** In a later arc, Revy and her fellow {{Badass}} Ginji start hunting mooks throughout a bowling alley. Revy herself {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this. [[PreMortemOneLiner "Better run or the bogeyman is going to get you!"]]

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', according to [[ActionSurvivor Boxcars]], the [[BombThrowingAnarchists Powder Gangers]] view [[PlayerCharacter The Courier]] as an equivalent to TheGrimReaper.
** [[spoiler: Joshua Graham]] has this effect on both Caesar's legion (for the mere thought he might still be alive) and the White Legs (he is the reason they haven't overrun Zion)

TheGrimReaper when they are [[AllianceMeter villified]] by them for slaughtering their attack on Goodsprings.
** [[spoiler: Joshua Graham]] has this effect on both Caesar's legion (for the mere thought he might still be alive) and the White Legs (he is the reason they haven't overrun Zion) Zion). This was a hold over from his [[spoiler:"Malpais Legate"]] days as he destroyed anyone that stood in the way of [[spoiler:Ceaser's Legion]].



** Any [[spoiler:post-“Old World Blues”]] random encounters double as this and RoboticReveal. Imagine that you're one of the Legion, tasked with bringing down a [[InsistentTerminology profligate]] who, after going off the grid for weeks, has finally turned up somewhere southwest of Vegas. Your team tracks him through the wilderness, noting that his footprints are heavier than normal and that he must be carrying an extra load. You find him wandering through the desert at midday, seemingly unburdened by either the extra load or the sun, and scope him down with the anti-materiel rifle (why they sent this with you for [[JustOneMan one man]], Caesar only knows). His head finally centered in the crosshairs, you pull the trigger, expecting a grisly red mist and the muted thump of a fresh corpse on the sand. Instead, you’re treated to the metallic WHANG of a ricochet and the cold gaze of a newly-forged [[GameBreaker demigod]]. As he closes the distance to your contubernium with inhuman speed, you have just enough time to doubt the anti-materiel rifle was ''enough''.

** In comic books Donald can do it even without dressing as Paperinik, as shown in "Donald and Reginella's Wedding". Just the sight of a furious Donald wielding a ''shotgun'' (with salt shells, but still) should be enough to warn the reader shit is about to go down... And indeed, the first encounter was so bad that the villains then come at him with ''an entire army''. [[OneManArmy It wasn't enough]], and afterward Donald can dictate rather harsh terms on pain of him finishing the job.

** "The Man Who Killed Batman" [[PlayingWithATrope plays some variants]] when [[{{Mooks}} humble mook]] Sid the Squid gains the RedBaron title [[TheMagnificent ''The Man Who Killed Batman'']] more or less by accident. First, FalseFriend {{mook|s}} Eddie G. arranges for Sid to play the bait while Eddie gets away, so Sid is chased by a TerrorHero. Sid is saved by his own luck and stupidity, apparently killing Batman in the process. He's taken to a BadGuyBar to celebrate, only to have some BitPartBadGuys GangBangers challenge him for the title of ''the toughest guy in Gotham''. Cue a BarBrawl. In quick succession, Sid is "saved" by the arrival of the police, only to be menaced by Harvey Bullock with a little JackBauerInterrogationTechnique; "saved" by a lawyer, who turns out to be Harley Quinn and leads Sid to the Joker, who puts Sid in a DeathTrap; escapes by a DeusExMachina and seeks protection from TheDon Rupert Thorne, who suspects Sid is trying to pull a ScheherezadeGambit and decides [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness Sid has outlived his usefulness]]; and finally truly saved by Batman, who plays this trope straight on Thorne's gang, and sends Sid to jail... where he is held in high regard for ''almost'' killing Batman.
