*** 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]].

* Dragons as a whole appears to be this in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. This doesn't apply on Earth, since only a handful of people are aware that dragons actually exist. Tohru seems to have this reputation even among other dragons, as seen by [[KnightTemplar Cremene]] freaking out when she shows up.

** First we have the protagonist, Ken Kaneki, who goes from a [[ShrinkingViolet shy]], NiceGuy bookworm to a ruthless [[AntiHero anti-hero]] who terrifies even Tokyo's most hardened fighters after he is turned into a artificially created half-ghoul and then [[ColdBloodedTorture repeatedly (and brutally) tortured]] [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil until his mind snaps like a brittle twig.]] When he is using his Kakuja kagune ([[CannibalismSuperpower which he got from cannibalizing other ghouls]]), he is rated as an SS level ghoul by [[TheHunter the CCG]], and is noted by veteran Special Class Investigator Shinohara to be [[TheMentallyDisturbed the most unstable ghoul he's ever encountered.]] In the sequel, Tokyo Ghoul: Re, [[spoiler: he has become a CCG investigator himself under the name 'Haise Sasaki' and becomes known as the ''[[RedBaron Black Reaper,]]'' and one of the most feared investigators in the series, and becomes the first investigator since Arima to deal the One-Eyed Owl a decisive defeat. That's not even getting into the fact that the one time he put on his old mask in TokyoGhoul: Re that it immediately sent any ghouls who recognized that it was ''Centipede's'' (his old CCG designation name) running in terror....]]

* ''Manga/BlackCat'': Train Heartnet. Used to be the XIII member of Chronos, even after quitting the title he still makes people shit their pants just by revealing who he is. It's saying something when even the AxCrazy Creed, who is a psychopath that isn't afraid of anyone, respect Train and doesn't want to deal with him when he's angry.
