* 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.

** The A-Team was originally composed of 6 versions of Creator/MrT, but they changed it after every criminal in the world was immediately vapourized in the first episode.

* 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...

* The Photographer in ''Webcomic/TheChosenFour'' is feared by Ness, which is Played for Laughs. However, the Photoman is the most powerful being in the comic, per RuleOfFunny.

** 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.]]

* Night Furies from ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon''. Some vikings do not believe they exist, but those that do dread the idea of encountering one. They [[PowerLevels outrank nearly every other dragon in speed, strength, intelligence, etc.]] [[FunSize despite its size]] and they blend in with the dark. [[UndeadAuthor No one has ever encountered one and lived to tell the tale]]. Even the dragon manual says that should one ever encounter a Night Fury, they should [[TheHunterBecomesTheHunted "hide and prey that it does not find [them]"]], and this is a book that tells you that dragons that spit [[HollywoodAcid acid]], turns you inside out and [[MakeMeWannaShout shout so loud that your ears explode]] should be "[[ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption killed on sight]]."
--> '''Hiccup''': This thing never steals food, never shows itself and... [[AlwaysAccurateAttack never misses]].

* The Irregulars from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod''. Normally, people who climb the Tower to get their deepest desire fulfilled have to be Chosen and are invited as Regulars. Not these guys. They came and kicked the metaphysical doors open by themselves and every time that happened, the Tower underwent drastic changes. Five Irregulars are known. One was a man-made god who defeated the [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking entire]] [[WorldOfBadass ruling structure]] of the Tower and then simply disappeared. Before him came a person who slew a PhysicalGod and could create life. The third followed the former into the Tower, climbed it ten times faster than anyone else[[note]]it took him 50 years[[/note]] and built a NGOSuperpower that rivals the government. The fourth one was almost completely immune to magic and could copy any spell on sight. And the last one [[spoiler:was an incredibly normal girl who stabbed her best friend in the back]]. People are not very fond of Irregulars. They are afraid of them.

** Among the Slaughterhouse Nine, there is one who inspires more dread than any other, even within their ranks: Gray Boy. [[spoiler:When Jack decided to have all the past members cloned by a factor of nine each, Gray Boy was the sole exception. Bonesaw guesses that one Gray Boy is all Jack could hope to control]].

** Lung was strong enough to fight off entire cape teams on his own and was the main reason the ABB gained significant power in Brockton Bay. Nobody really wants to fight a guy who can go toe to toe with Leviathan and ''walk away''.
