** 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."

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.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Even before he [[TheGhost actually showed up]], the show established that BiggerBad ComicBook/RasAlGhul is so frightening that everyone who knows of him is terrified of him [[spoiler:even Season 1 BigBad Malcolm Merlyn]]. And when he ''does'' finally show up in Season 3, it becomes clear that his reputation is not only well-founded, but an ''understatement''.
** Season 2: [[BigBad Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke]] also invoked a lot of fear, to the point that Oliver and Sara, two of the biggest badasses on the show, are utterly ''terrified'' when they realize he's in Starling City. Even Amanda Waller was reduced to tears when she found out he was alive.

*** Damien Darhk has such a reputation in the magical (under)world that even John Constantine was wary of him and told Oliver to be careful with this one.
*** Prometheus. Everyone but Team Arrow is scared of him, and that's because Team Arrow hates him to the very core.
** ''Series/TheFlash2014''
*** The Reverse-Flash, aka "The Man in the Yellow Suit", to those who know of his existence. Barry himself admits that he fears as much as he hates the Reverse-Flash, and it's that fear that has prevented him from leaving Central City and moving forward with his life.
*** Zoom. Earth-2 lives in such sheer fear of him that the police don't even bother opposing him anymore. He quickly became similarly feared on Earth-1 after he outright crushed the Flash in their first fight. It's implied that even the Season 1 BigBad fears him, judging by how he took the appearance of Zoom's helmet as his cue to leave.

** Tywin Lannister is arguably the most straightforward example in the series. After his [[KillEmAll utter annihilation of House Reyne]] for their attempted rebellion decades before, he became the single most feared man in Westeros during his life. He is known for being [[TheChessmaster an utterly brilliant politician]] and [[TheUnfettered completely ruthless in achieving his goals]]. Tywin's son, Tyrion, describes Westeros as "Seven Kingdoms united in fear of Tywin Lannister." He keeps Petyr Balish, Varys and Olenna from croassing him and even his complete psychopath grandson, King Joffrey Baratheon, is utterly emasculated whenever he is in the same room as his grandfather, [[DragonInChief despite the fact that Tywin is supposed to be the one serving him]]. Robb Stark likewise sees Tywin as his enemy.

* ''Stargate franchise'': The Goa'uld are usually this to most human civilizations. The likes of Sokar and Anubis are feared even by other Goa'uld, and until Anubis upgraded their technology in season 6, they were all afraid of the Asgard. The Wraith and Ori also have this reputation.

** After FlayingAlive a lord who didn't submit to his father's rule (as well as his wife and brother), Ramsay Bolton becomes feared throughout the North, and people are now submitting simply to avoid his horrific reprisals, a reputation he is clearly pleased with. His father on the other hand, despite the submissions, [[PragmaticVillainy is less than pleased due to the long-term problems of dealing with bannermen in this manner]].

Sansa ends up running away in large part out of fear of what Ramsey could do to her, which as Roose points out, would invite rebellion from the North, and the wrath of the Iron Throne.

** Tyrion's reaction to hearing Oberyn Martell is in town is a restrained OhCrap. Judging by his EstablishingCharacterMoment, Oberyn has come by his reputation honestly.
