Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/{{K}}'' has a few of these. Kuroh, Kusanagi, Daikaku Kokujouji, all badasses. There's also Adolf K. Weismann [[spoiler: who ends up being a subversion]]. Yukari, Munakata, and Mikoto also have prominent Ks. All of the episode titles also start with K, except for the episode called "Adolf K. Weismann". The show itself also qualifies.

Added DiffLines:

* Kronos from Greek mythology (also spelled Cronus): in addition to being the god of time, (hence "chronology," for example) he's most famous for castrating his own father Oranos and usurping his role as King of the Titans, proceeding to eat his own children as soon as they were born to try and prevent a prophecy telling of his own defeat, and leading the Titans and their allies against Zeus and the other Olympians in the Titanomachy. Fiction usually has him as the BiggerBad as far as Ancient Greece is concerned (''AgeOfMythology'', ''PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', etc.) by conspiring with mortals and even other gods to escape from Tartarus. Also the namesake for the short-necked plesiosaur ''Kronosaurus'', itself something you'd probably want to run (or rather swim) away from.

* Music/TheBeatles' "Helter Skelter", created once "[[Music/PaulMcCartney the cute one]]" read that TheWho had produced one of the "loudest, rawest, dirtiest" rock songs and decided to one up it with a song that's basically just noise. It starts to veer slightly away from its badass origins, however, [[LyricalDissonance once you realize that a "helter skelter" is actually a playground slide and that this song could just as easily have been about "going 'round and 'round on a MERRY-GO-ROOOOUUUNNNDDD!!!!" or "riding up and down on a FERRIS WHEEEEEL!!!!"]] (although the phrase "helter skelter" itself does have a double-meaning of "going crazy", "chaotic" or "without order"; which unfortunadely fits the infamy Usefulnotes/CharlesManson achieved using the song)
