[[folder:Raze]]
What conquerors are likely to do.

[[AC:ComicBooks]]
* ComicBook/RasAlGhul from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' sounds like this. For extra running bowel-trembling terror-ness, Ra's al Ghul means "the demon's head" in Arabic.

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]
* The Ra'zac from the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle''.

[[AC:WebOriginal]]
* From Wiki/{{Killerbunnies}}, we have Razelle Anne Serchendistroy. Interestingly, her name is an actual but uncommon name and, ironically, despite it's spelling, her name means " ewe, lamb daughter", not what you'd expect.

Both of the titles 'kaiser' and 'tsar'/czar' are derived from 'Caesar'. Of course, the kaisers and tsars were notable lines of conquerors in their own rights. In some cases, 'kaiser' can be a respectable title for someone, like it was for Ryu in ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal''. Named after Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar, who conquered and unified Italy, Gaul, and the Iberian peninsula towards the end of the Roman Republic.

* A slight variation: ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'''s hero, Maximus Decimus Meridius. Due to the quirks of Roman naming (and also because of the idiosyncratic way his name was rendered), most viewers don't realize that Maximus is not actually his given name, but a title. In English, his name comes out as [[BadAss Maximus the Great, Conqueror of the South]]. Certainly a name to run away from if you're in the arena with the fellow, or just ''happen'' to have assassinated his Emperor.
