* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'': Parodied. Kuromine is terrified of Shirayuki, the former principal of Morobare High, simply because [[IdiotPlot she's the only character in the story who's not a complete idiot]]. Admittedly, she is a genuinely dangerous opponent with some disturbing plans, but the main reason Kuromine is scared is because he's never had to deal with someone who doesn't sabotage themselves every five seconds.

* Yuri of ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' actively enjoys spreading misery and fear. Yuzu Hiragi was reduced to crying and running away from him after an on-screen duel. Even Jean-Michel Roger—who orchestrates his schemes with a cool head, a calm smile, and a tranquil confidence that he can plan around everyone, even armies, that dares to oppose him—sees just the arrival of Yuri as a ticking clock before his plans go up in smoke. It's to the point that his allies will go from careful planning and strategy to "Well, the opponents are just done for" upon his arrival.

* ''Manga/CityHunter'':
** Ryo and Umibozu are quite feared among other sweepers and criminal groups in general. So far we've seen yakuzas and thugs running when they realize they're facing the goddamn City Hunter (the list includes a yakuza boss who switched from being very sure of victory to begging for forgiveness as soon as he realized who his son had provoked and a hitman who didn't fear Umibozu (as he knew his one weak spot) almos shitting himself when he realized he was facing City Hunter too), Kaori plainly admitting she's terrified of Umibozu (that was even before she found out who he was), and people being terrified of Umibozu due his sheer size and tendency to bring down trees with a punch when he's pissed.
** Kaibara, boss of Union Teope and Ryo's stepfather, is so feared that Ryo and Umibozu are terrified of him, and Mick Angel accepted the job of killing Ryo only out of fear of him.

** Guts is this when he was known as the Hundred-Man Slayer before the Eclipse, and post-Eclipse when he is now known as The Black Swordsman.

** Guts is this when he was known as the Hundred-Man Slayer before the Eclipse, and post-Eclipse when he is now known as The Black Swordsman. Even people who don't know his reputation tend to be frightened of him... since he is a walking armored hulk carrying a [[{{BFS}} sword bigger than some people]]. Clearly not someone you want to mess with.

** The one whose presence does disconcert the dragons visibly is Xellos, though -- after the carnage they suffered from him in their last war. He even used this status, though only to cut short their tendency to muck around and get things dragon themselves could see as desirable ''eventually'' done ''right now''. He also seem to perceive Filia's meandering between haughty disregard and sheer horror as either amusing or refreshing.

to:

*** Lina is especially terrifying to (non-sapient) dragons, as shown in one of the non-serial movies when a villain with an army of dragons asked her who she was, she answered, and as the villain gloated about how his dragons would soon annihilate her [[OhCrap the dragons exchanged looks of horror]] before [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere flying for their lives]].
** The one whose presence does disconcert the dragons (sapient) Golden Dragons visibly is Xellos, though -- after the carnage they suffered from him in their last war. He even used this status, though only to cut short their tendency to muck around and get things dragon Golden Dragons themselves could see as desirable ''eventually'' done ''right now''. He also seem to perceive Filia's meandering between haughty disregard and sheer horror as either amusing or refreshing.

* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' has a few among the Gold Saints:
** [[CardCarryingVillain Cancer Deathmask]] is walking NightmareFuel, thanks to his combination of the godlike powers of a Gold Saint, [[BloodKnight his love for combat]], the complete disregard for collateral damage (when called out on [[WouldHurtAChild having killed children]] he replies that he ''had not noticed''), and the habit of ''trapping the souls of his victims in his Temple in the guise of wailing faces covering all the walls and the floor as trophies''. It gets to the point that in ''Manga/SaintSeiyaEpisodeG'' a Giant (that is, a low-level ''god'' bent on destroying humanity) once invaded his Temple and recoiled in horror when he realized what the faces were, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu before being added to the collection]].
** Virgo Shaka is called "[[PhysicalGod the man closest to god]]", and anyone who knows who they're dealing with is ''terrified'' at the idea of fighting him. Ikki at first did not fear him... Then Shaka made him remember their previous encounter, and Ikki started trembling in fear. Then, late in the series, [[BigBad Hades]] learns that Shaka has invaded the afterlife... [[HorrifyingTheHorror And he too is terrified]].
** Pisces Aphrodite is described by Saga (the first BigBad) as the most terrifying of the Gold Saints. He doesn't show much in the original series, but in ''Episode G'' a group of powerful enemies is terrified at the idea of fighting him, and what he does in ''Anime/SaintSeiyaSoulOfGold'' to the enemy ''starts'' with [[MindRape mind-raping one of them into submission]] and gets more terrible from there.

*** Amuro Ray (the original Gundam pilot) was equally feared by both the Federation and Zeon remnants, if only for his raw Newtype powers and combat prowess; generally, whereas red mobile suits were automatically assumed to be piloted by Char, Gundams were automatically assumed to be piloted by Amuro (for a time anyway). In fact, the Federation was so afraid of the mere possibility of Amuro turning against them that they [[spoiler:placed him under permanent house arrest in Wyoming]]; naturally, this did nothing to keep Amuro from escaping and joining the [[LaResistance Karaba]] later on.

** '''Beerus''', in ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle Of Gods]]'' takes this UpToEleven. Again, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Vegeta is terrified of him]], as are the Kais, and pretty much ''everyone'' else who knows who he is, including Shenlong! Even ''Frieza'' (after attaining a new level of power!) is scared, and humbly asks if ''Lord'' Beerus intends to interfere with his revenge. This even rubs off on Goku, who while very friendly tends to be rude and informal even with authority figures. Beerus is the only person in the series Goku will address with a respectful "-sama" ("Lord Beerus" in the dub).

*** To clarify, Whitebeard is THE Dreaded, and for very good reason. WorldsStrongestMan you say? This guy so deserves his title that the World Government busts out their ''entire'' military might, including all three Admirals, just so that they even have a smidgeon of hope of actually competing in a battle, let alone a prolonged war, against this guy. And he's an elderly man in his seventies, [[DentedIron far out of his prime]], and to top it off is in the advanced stages of a terminal illness and during any of his fights, has to take breathers because his heart's giving out on him, and he still easily holds that title [[spoiler:until his death]].
** Out of all of the current members of the Four Emperors, the one that stands out the most as this trope is the one who took the longest to make an official appearance: Kaido. It's stated that he was responsible for massacring Gekko Moria's original crew, which is implied to have been composed of One-Man Armies, and he managed to scare the hell out of [[spoiler:''Donquixote Doflamingo'']], to the point that when forced to face his wrath or the wrath of the aforementioned admirals, he chose the admirals. When you make ''them'' look like the ''friendlier'' option, you are this trope UpToEleven, [[spoiler:never mind that Doflamingo [[TakeAThirdOption Took a Third Option]] to not have to face either of them. And when he does show up, we find out he has a reputation for surviving dozens of his own executions without a scratch, breaking out of prison in the bloodiest ways possible, and taking up suicide attempts for fun because he's just that NighInvulnerable]].
