It may be that the character is [[TheBigGuy big]], or [[JerkAss mean]], or [[{{Villains}} evil]], or [[TheGrotesque scary-looking]], or simply {{badass}}. It may be any combination of those qualities. It doesn't even have to be a person, although it usually is. It ''cannot'' be a case of a supernatural evil leaking through a failed shield or glamour, though; that's GlamourFailure. This trope isn't limited to dogs, either. The critter that backs down may be any critter, as long as it's established it's a badass in its own right.

* One of the first memorable moments in ''Manga/OnePiece'' is Shanks scaring off a giant eel to cement how much of {{badass}} he is. Later Luffy does it similarly with a bison. Much later, it's revealed what they did was a form of Haki that only a select few are capable of doing.

* The ''SesameStreet'' TV movie ''Big Bird in China'' has Big Bird's dog, Barkley, accompany him on a trip to Beijing. While they are visiting the Great Wall, Barkley begins incessantly barking in a state of paranoia for no apparent reason - until we see that a grotesque mythological demon called the Monkey King (who is actually a good guy and there to help Big Bird solve a mystery, although he ''is'' a bit of a {{Jerkass}}) is constantly appearing, disappearing and reappearing, frightening Barkley.
