* Seamus in ''{{Malifaux}}'' is a UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper analog who shares the top spot in the Guild's Most Wanted list with a demon queen. While he can [[{{Necromancer}} reanimate the dead]], his reputation is based primarily on being a KnifeNut who even monsters fear.

*** As of The End Times, he ''has'' destroyed the Old World. Chaos won, Archaon accomplished his mission, game over, buy our new WarhammerAgeOfSigmar stuff.

Added DiffLines:

** The Necrons ''in general''. One of the ''Literature/WordBearers'' novels has a Word Bearers Dark Apostle, whose ''job'' is to give bloody praise to the gods of the warp and thus must have a decently strong will, respond to the appearance of a large Necron ship in-system by running up the Buckets of Nope flag and sounding the retreat.

** Within [[TheEmpire the Imperium]], [[StateSec Inquisitors]]. Not just because they're personally {{Badass}}, although many are, but because they have effectively unlimited power. They can order your whole planet sterilised or just take you away to [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique torture]], and no one will, officially, say anything. Just the sight of their badge of office has been known to make people soil themselves.

** [[BadassGrandpa Commissar Yarrick]] is notable for being this to ''[[BloodKnight Orks]]'', who literally have no fear of death. The thing is, Orks believe that he's an unkillable {{Badass}}, and [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve that belief indeed causes him to be unkillable and badass]]. He has a special rule that means if he's killed by a unit in an Ork army, he stands a very good chance of ''[[BackFromTheDead getting back up]]''.

* Every single dragon, ever. Even the good ones! Fortunately they can control this power.



* The Kindred of ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' fear the Antediluvians. They were the grandchildren of Caine, who cursed them and their childer with their clan weaknesses. The Camarilla as a policy denies their existence, while the Sabbat want to destroy them and take their power. One of them awakening from torpor brought about the Week of Nightmares and several factions had to [[EnemyMine team up to fight him]]. The Technocracy authorized [[GodzillaThreshold absolutely anything]] to stop him. Hitting him with a magically-enhanced nuclear weapon only weakened him; the Technocracy readjusted three orbital mirrors to hit him with the equivalent of three Suns to finally dust him.

** On a meta level: dragons and even the Tarrasque may be met with a cry of ''Charge!'' from all around the table, but throw a vampire at the party, and it's "run away, those things can ''Level Drain''!"

** Anyone in who isn't at least level 20 will metaphorically and/or physically crap their pants at the news the the tarrasque has awoken. The beast, while occasionally fading into myth due to its long hibernation periods, is NEVER totally forgotten, as when it IS awake, it embarks on rampages of destruction and feeding that can destroy whole countries. Even if it is defeated, it requires the use of the top-level arcane spell ''wish'' to keep it from just brushing off death. Only ''the most powerful spell in the game'' can kill it.

** In counterpoint to Shadowblade is Alith Anar, the Shadow King of Nagarythe. After Malekith declared war on the High Elves and fled Ulthuan, but not before killing all of Alith Anar's family for staying loyal to Ulthuan, Anar was named as his successor to rule over the kingdom of Nagarythe. Since that day he has waged unending war against the Dark Elves, with a personal kill count of thousands within the first few years, and not ''one'' of those he kills dies easily. Just like Shadowblade is to the rest of the Elven Kingdoms, the Dark Elves refuse to even speak his name.

Just like Shadowblade is to the rest of the Elven Kingdoms, the Dark Elves refuse to even speak his name. Malekith himself is scared of him, and he has a prophecy that tells him specifically how he's going to die, and yet he is ''still'' scared of the Shadow King of Nagarythe.
