** Season 4 shows that angels are this to demons: a group of demons harass Sam and Dean shortly after Dean is mysteriously brought back from Hell, but Sam points out that the demons don't know how Dean is alive, either, and are more afraid than they are, because it means there might be a bigger fish. Later, Sam goes back to kill them and finds that their eyes were burnt out because they saw what it really looked like. The only survivor is gibbering about how the end is upon us and how everything is going to die. When it turns out that nothing Sam and Dean have or can do will hurt an angel and sometimes angels can go bad and/or insane, things escalate quickly.

Upping the ante from there, regular angels fear archangels, who can smite their lesser brethren into nothing with apparently little effort.

** The Iconians were so feared that the other races in the galaxy banded together to wipe them out via orbital bombardment of their homeworld and called them "Demons of Air and Darkness". [[spoiler:In ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'', the Iconians turn out to be not so extinct and they are responsible for the strife plaguing the sector. In their first real appearance, a single Iconian vessel wipes out two Borg cubes and leaves just as quickly, telling the survivors to fear them. Furthermore, the ''Dominion'' is so afraid of the Iconians that their official policy for dealing with them is to give the Iconians anything and everything they want, hoping they will go away.]]

** Every employee of Wolfram & Hart is extremely afraid of any actual contact with a Senior Partner; they signed up to work for them as an absentee boss, but it's horrible when they come to this dimension personally. This forms most of the plot of the episode "Reprise," and in "Deep Down," even the CEO Linwood Murrow [[OhCrap knew he was done for]] as soon as Lilah started bragging about having had a personal audience with a Senior Partner.

** Khan Noonien Singh is cited as the sole reason for the Federation's NoTranshumanismAllowed policy. In the 1990s Eugenics Wars, he was able to take over at least a quarter of the Earth, managed to escape to space when normal humans deposed the other supers, and later proved a match for James Kirk, Starfleet's resident MemeticBadass. Even a century after his death, Starfleet is still absolutely terrified of another Khan rising from illegal genetic engineering programs.

** [[spoiler:The Darkness]] is the epitome of this trope. Even [[spoiler:[[{{Satan}} Lucifer]], the ArchangelMichael, and ''[[TheGrimReaper Death himself]]'']] seem afraid of her. Considering she's [[spoiler:the source of all evil in the universe and equal to God in power]], it's not surprising.

** Even the Doctor's regenerations face this. [[spoiler:There is a regeneration those following the Eighth Doctor don't speak of: [[Creator/JohnHurt the War Doctor]]. He is notorious for breaking the promise bound to the name "the Doctor" by burning down Gallifrey and the Daleks with them. [[note]]Of course then it's found out in the 50th Anniversary special that Gallifrey ''didn't'' burn and was instead preserved in stasis by all of the Doctors (ItMakesSenseInContext), and the only reason the timeline still asserts the War Doctor as The Dreaded is because he and Ten forget they actually saved Gallifrey after they return to their own times.[[/note]]]]

* ''Series/FatherTed'' had [[TheBore Father Stone]]. Just mentioning his name caused Dougal to faint and Jack to MegatonPunch Ted out of the parish.
** More seriously, Bishop Brenan.

** There is also the Valeyard. He starts off as a LawfulEvil AmoralAttorney prosecuting the 6th Doctor. It is finally revealed by the Master that they are an EnemyWithout of the Doctor [[FutureMeScaresMe between his 12th and final incarnations]]. They are so terrible the Master is scared of them. Taken further in the DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse, where the 7th Doctor locked away the 6th Doctor's personality to prevent the Valeyard existing. AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho Unbound shows if the Valeyard had won he would have destroyed the Web of Time.
