* ''Series/Battlebots'':
** Tombstone is perhaps the most iconic bot of the ABC series, and for good reason. Its main weapon is a massive spinning blade with immense destructive power. Most robots win fights by hitting the other robot until it stops working. Tombstone wins fights by hitting the other robot until it isn't in one piece anymore. Tombstone was feared enough that despite not winning Season 1, it was given the top seeding in Season 2, which ended in Tombstone claiming victory. And every battle it fought in Season 2 until the semi-finals was won by knockout.
** Minotaur is giving Tombstone a run for its money, with a weapon that is similarly destructive, combined with the robot itself being small, fast, and very durable. Its own weapon [[HellIsThatNoise sounds like a jet engine revving up]], and left a trail of destruction in its wake comparable to Tombstone.

** Carbide became an absolute terror during Series 9, with a spinning bar that packs the same steel-rending capability that Hypnodisc used to have paired up with flipping resistance and a few upgrades that made it [[MadeOfIron surprisingly unkillable for a thing that deadly]]. A GlassCannon that covered its glassy weaknesses, it tore right through ''everyone'' during that series, and came out completely undefeated, with opponents being increasingly afraid of that [[HellIsThatNoise unnerving hum]] that came from its bar gaining enough speed to rip its foe to pieces. That is NotHyperbole, in at least one fight bits of the unfortunate adversary had to be '''pulled out of the plexiglass walls'''.

--->'''Peter Kinsley:''' We did not want to meet HypnoDisc... This machine was stunning for the amount of damage it dished out. The pits were very quiet when it was on.

** Everyone aside the Klingon thread lightly when dealing with the Romulans, even if their schemes rarely obtain something. We see exactly why in two occasions:
** In the original series, a single bird-of-prey, fusion powered (compared to the Federation's use of antimatter as fuel) violating the Neutral Zone sent the ''Enterprise''[='=]s crew in OhCrap mode ''before'' they realized the little ship actually ''outgunned the larger Federation vessel''. Kirk has to use all its wits to take that one down...
** In ''Deep Space 9'' the Dominion apparently plans to deal with the Federation and the Klingon at the same time before getting in a war with the Romulans. Then the Federation tricks the Romulans into thinking the Dominion plans to attack them... And, a few weeks later, ''the Romulans have single-handedly beaten the Dominion forces back in the pre-war Cardassian space'', before actually bothering to contact their new allies-partly because they have to give them back the worlds they liberated.

** A non-villanious example is Lwaxana Troi, Deanna Troi's mother. The crew of the ''Enterprise'' become very nervous whenever she arrives. Captain Picard, in particular, fears her, once hiding in a holodeck to avoid her and another time being tricked into taking a vacation when Counselor Troi lies about her mother's impending visit.

* In ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', Eliot Spencer is a rare heroic example. Anyone who knows Eliot's reputation as a supreme badass takes him ''very'' seriously. When he announces himself by name to Moreau's bodyguards, an entire roomful of people draw guns on him and the closest ones actually look ''worried''.

** Bennet was pretty dreaded himself at first. He's a BadassNormal who used to work for The Company and was very good at it. Sylar is in fact the ''only'' thing more feared than "the man with the horn-rimmed glasses."

Sylar is in fact the ''only'' thing more feared than "the man with the horn-rimmed glasses."" In fact, when an eclipse robs all of them of their powers for a few hours, Sylar has to run and hide from Bennet, who suddenly has the upper hand (well, a sniper rifle).

---> '''Gallifreyan Soldier:''' First thing you notice about the Doctor of War is that he is unarmed. For many, it's also the last.
