** Odin himself was dreaded by men to the extent that some effort might be made to avoid getting his attention at all. The chief danger in Odin is that his plans and interests revolved solely around himself and disregarded the cost to anyone else; being a champion of the creator god sounds great until you realize most of his champions met horribe ends and gained nothing, not even Odin's favor in the afterlife. Even the Einherjar (the chosen warriors who live in Valhalla) were not chosen for reward so much as recruited into Odin's personal (doomed, see above) army.

* [[PsychoElectro Slade]] from ''HeartCore'', TheDragon of [[BigBad Royce Lashiec]]. Not only does he love to cause even MORE pain than his master does, not only does [[BadassPrincess Ame]], the third strongest living demon so far, fear the mere thought of being in his presence, bu not even his own allies can be with him without fearing for their lives, knowing how he can at any point kill them just out of curiosity and boredom.

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'': SCP-173 is a living sculpture that kills its victims when they break eye contact with it. What puts it firmly in this category, however, is that 682, the regenerating lizard that just doesn't die and hates all life on earth, only yelped in what appeared to be terror and stared at it for hours when put in the same room, growing new eyes when they were shot out so 173 could do its thing. When you scare the crap out of ''this'' thing, you know you're feared. From [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/dr-clef-s-proposal Dr. Clef's 001 Proposal]], this is a creature so powerful that ''[[AxCrazy Able]]'' refuses to go anywhere near it.

* ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'':
** Kamikaze Kate, who, as the name implies, is known for racing in a suicidally reckless way. After her sister was killed by reckless racers (who got off scot-free), she started to act like she was trying to kill everyone on the track, including herself. She raced every single person who showed any talent, wrecked most of their cars and nearly killed several of them. Just hearing her name is enough to make Ash shiver. It turns out that a large part of Kate's advantage came from the fact that she was possessed by her sister's vengeful ghost, but she's still genuinely the best racer around.
** PlayedForLaughs after Kate's sister is exorcised and she undergoes a HeelFaceTurn. Kate becomes a friendly and helpful mentor to Ash, even calling Ash "little sister" and inviting Ash to be the maid of honor at Kate's wedding. But Ash is still completely terrified of her, to the point that she can tell when Kate is near by the nameless feeling of dread.

* FolkLore: The {{Bogeyman}} is this trope ''personified''. Every child that has heard of him fears him, he can appear as the thing you fear most, and if you've been naughty, ''God have mercy on your soul''.

* A typical feature of the main characters of MemeticBadass sites.
** The most famous one: Bogeymen scare their children with stories about Website/{{Chuck Norris|Facts}}.
** The only reason Chuck Norris is afraid of death is because he knows Creator/BruceLee will be waiting for him.

* Maleficent from ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''. Her mere presence strikes fear in the hearts of everyone present, the ''queen'' fears her enough to call her "your excellency" to avoid offending her and the palace guards back down from their order to capture her simply because she raised her hands and commanded them to stand back.
** Maleficent is so dreaded, in fact, that even Disney crossover materials go out of their way to show it--with other Disney villains, the reactions from the heroes tend to be mixed and often times they're confident enough to take chances. But when Maleficent shows up the response from everyone is almost universally pure terror. For example, in ''Theatre/{{Fantasmic}}'', Maleficent's presence inspires more fear in Mickey than that of [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarves the Evil Queen]], [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Genie!Jafar]] or [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Chernabog]] (who is pretty much ''Satan!'').

* Kore in ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' has a tendency to induce OhCrap moments in those he meets, or even those who hear stories of him, particularly since he has utterly no qualms about killing anyone [[KnightTemplar if he perceives them as evil]], and is said to have [[OneManArmy fought entire armies and won]]. Even a fellow dwarf paladin refers to him as "the Cursed Scourge of the Realm". And then there's how he WouldHurtAChild...

** Hades was this to the Greeks themselves; he's the yardstick by which terrifying creatures in myth (like Typhon) are compared to. Typhon is so bad that he was not only scarier than Hades, he [[HorrifyingTheHorror''frightened'' him.]]
