* 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''.

See also MookHorrorShow; when TheHero is the dreaded to his enemies, this is a common way of demonstrating it. Not to be confused with characters who are merely [[DreadlockRasta dreaded]], although both tropes may apply to [[DreadlockWarrior the same character]]. Compare/contrast RespectedByTheRespected, where a character is defined by the respect other respected characters have for them.

See SupernaturalFearInducer for when a character can literally induce dread.

* [[Wrestling/KanakoUrai Kana]]/[[Wrestling/{{WWENXT}} Asuka]] is probably the closest you can get to having someone be a WrestlingMonster without actually [[PintSizedPowerhouse looking like one.]] She is feared for her notoriously stiff style which involves things such as reversing a simple slap into a flying armbar, a [[AssKicksYou hip attack]] that has legitimately injured people, and managing to win multiple victories by straight up knocking the opponent out with a kick to the head. Also her [[SlasherSmile creepy smile]] and primal screams mid match probably doesn't help. In her NXT run, she's also [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable undefeated]]; the only person who has managed to even come close to being on her level was Wrestling/{{Bayley}}, and considering she was the NXT Women's Champion at the time, she had the best chance of any competitor there.

** For reasons that haven't entirely been made clear, [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20160330#.VvuFhj-jui4 Oglavia Spüdna]]. Post-TimeSkip, she's a fairly high-ranking spy, she's written a book...and a keeper of the Incorruptible Library breaks and starts begging to talk the moment she introduces herself.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' webseries and comic, Dark Avenger is heavily implied to have been the most feared {{Player Kill|ing}}er of the game before he got in his MistakenForBadass situation with [[InvincibleIncompetent Sparadrap]]. The Game Master seen in the comic shows his WantedPoster among two others, the two other being [[TheCracker Tenshirock]] and [[RealMoneyTrade Ash]].

** On the Wulfenbach's side, there's the Dreen, strange, clawed cyclops with conic hats and veils that don't quite look ''that'' threatening. But once they enter the fray, general Zog's plan immediately turns towards getting the hell out of here. A reminder: These creatures scare the crap out of a [[StrongerWithAge centuries-old]] SuperSoldier [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority general]] who single-handedly shot down a carrier full of troops. And just to rub it in, one particular Dreen survived a stomp by a HumongousMecha intact, and blew it up by ''touching'' it, immediately afterwards.
