** The Eldar fear Slaanesh so much that their various cultures are primarily based on ways to avoid losing their souls to it. The Craftworld Eldar live repressed monastic over-specialized lives and stick their souls into rocks, the Exodites are SpaceAmish who live on the fringes of the galaxy far away from the Eye of Terror and work very hard to keep themselves hidden from Chaos, and the Dark Eldar offer up the souls and suffering of others in place of their own so they can keep indulging themselves.

Eldar refer to Slaanesh only as "the Great Enemy", and if ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' is any suggestion, saying Slaanesh's real name is profanity.

** In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'', the Lizardmen have become this to the Skaven on a species-wide level, due to a form of ancestral memory.

* Ghosts in ''TabletopGame/BleakWorld'' live in constant fear of Reapers and [[FateWorseThanDeath the Second Death]] because of [[EldritchAbomination "The Caretaker"]] who presides over [[EldritchLocation The Death Beyond Death]] where The Caretaker tortures them for all eternity, but unlike hell, they keep all their mental faculties and will never find the release of insanity or submission.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', the evil god Rovagug is this among the other gods. He wants nothing less than the destruction of all creation, has slain countless of his fellow deities, and even gods who hated each other [[EnemyMine joined forces]] to bring him down and [[SealedEvilInACan imprison him within Golarion itself]]. Even down there he's far from harmless, as his struggles cause earthquakes, and every now and then he releases some form of Spawn to wreak havoc across entire nations. One of these is the Tarrasque (see above). Yes, ''the freaking Tarrasque'' is this guys kid.

* Anyone in the DungeonsAndDragons universe 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.

* 3rd Edition's sister product ''D20Modern'' has the Frightful Presence Feat, which requires hostiles of lesser level to make Will saves or become afraid just by seeing the character who has it. The same ability appears in the 3rd Edition ''DungeonsAndDragons'' but is drastically more difficult to obtain. * The Lady of Pain is this to anyone who lives in Sigil in the ''{{Planescape}}'' campaign, and with good reason. It takes a lot to make her angry at you, but if you ''do'' make her mad, she locks you up in an eternal maze. (And ''that's'' if she's in a ''good'' mood. If someone catches her on a bad day when they make her mad, then magic is going to be needed to identify the body.)

** The Beastmen speak in hushed whispers of an entity known as "Shaabhekh", which is Bray-Tongue for "Soul-Killer". Indeed, killing is what he does well, having slain untold thousands of Beastmen over the centuries. They speak of the fabled Green Knight of Bretonnia.

** Vecna, the Lich God of Secrets, is so feared that few mortals even say his name aloud; instead, most use his titles, such as The Maimed Lord, the Whispered One, and the One Spoken Only in Whispers. Even when he was mortal, he was so notorious for his cruelty that few dared say his name, most referring to him by his original title, the Master of the Spider Throne.

Throne. * 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 grandchilder 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.

* Seamus in ''{{Malifaux}}'' is a 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.

*** And it's implied that the Harlequins themselves are scared shitless by the Dark Reaper Phoenix Lord, Maugan-Ra. He certainly earned it, though, seeing as he once took on an entire Tyranid Hive Fleet all by himself, and survived [[note]]To wit, entire Space Marine Chapters have been wiped out trying to do this[[/note]].
