* Usually, the PlayerCharacter in the ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' series is subject to DudeWheresMyRespect attitudes and attacks from mooks who are clearly TooDumbToLive. This changes by ''[[BaldursGateIIThroneOfBhaal Throne of Bhaal]]'', especially in the fight with Sendai. As you're defeating her minions, you're treated to several cutscences where Sendai berates [[TheDragon her advisors]] for not effectively dealing with you. When she finds out who exactly is trashing her base, she immediately ''freaks out'' and racks her brain to find any way to stop you.

** ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRogue'': Shay Patrick Cormac is this... ''for the Assassin's''. As a former member of The Brotherhood he knows every tactic and dirty trick in the book, and can get the surprise on every assassin he comes across. You would think that an organization of highly trained killing machines would not be concerned about one person interfering with their plans, let alone be afraid of anyone. Yet in less than ''six years'' Shay manages to near singlehandedly tear apart their firmly established criminal empire, and wipe out every major assassin in the Colonial branch of the Brotherhood, all while shrugging off or foiling all of their attempts to kill him. [[spoiler: Even an Assassin like [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity Charles Dorian]] can recognize him on sight.]]

** The third game gives us Kalros, the "Mother of All Thresher Maws". While that might be an exaggeration, it's still one of the most powerful creatures in the universe. As Garrus puts it, when the [[BloodKnight krogan]] name a Thresher Maw, you know you're in trouble, because that means ''they'' don't think it can be killed. [[spoiler:It ''kills a Reaper in single combat''.]]

** [[GreenThumb Yuuka Kazami]] is noted in ''[[UniverseCompendium Perfect Memento in Strict Sense]]'' to have a Human Friendship Level of ''Worst'' (lower than the genocidal MasterPoisoner [[AnimateInanimateObject doll]]) and a Danger Level of ''Extremely High'' (the same as the ghost that can OneHitKill anyone and the PersonOfMassDestruction vampire). No-one knows what her deal is and no-one is in any rush to find out, with Akyuu's article on her summarized as "stay the hell away from her", and even [[TheDitz Cirno]] recognizes in ''Phantasmagoria of Flower View'' that fighting her is a bad idea.

** The other [[SuperSoldier SPARTANs]] are also referred to as "Demons".
** The Primordial[=/=]Captive[=/=][[spoiler:Precursor[=/=]Gravemind]], he's not really a publicly known figure, but to those who do know what it is, the revelation that it's loose inspires shock and fear.

* The Doomguy in ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' has this reputation. He earned it through being a [[OneManArmy nigh unstoppable force]] rampaging through hell, killing even the strongest demons in the realm, [[SealedGoodInACan and was only stopped by being entombed]]. When he's freed at the start of the game, you can see why. You can find quite a few bits of demonic artwork that portray "the Doom Marine" as an unstoppable evil, as well as UAC reports indicating the demons were ''freaking out'' and fighting with more ferocity than ever before seen when the UAC started getting close to recovering the sarcophagus containing Doomguy.

His list of titles given by the legions of Hell (who call their realm Doom) include [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Doom Slayer, Hell Walker, The Unchained Predator, and The Scourge of Hell]].

* While the Killers can all count in ''VideoGame/DeadByDaylight'', the Trapper has a skill based entirely on his sheer presence causing fear. This translates to making all survivors within a radius around the Trapper have more [[QuickTimeEvent Skill Shots]] when doing anything, increasing the likelihood that they'll screw up.

* ''Videogame/StarControl'': The Dnyarri used to be a race-wide example. Back then, they were a race of toad-like aliens with so much psychic power just ''one'' of them could enslave an entire planet, and they always did. They took over an entire race coalition after taking over the aliens that made first contact, and the race that wiped them out at last (by cutting the PSI link through excruciating species-wide pain) has more or less gone insane with fear and usually isolates, or even wipes out other races in an effort never to be enslaved again. This fear can be brought back once you find out another race revived one of the Dnyarri, and you can practically see the aforementioned race crapping its nonexistant pants once they find out about ''just the one Dnyarri''.
