* ''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth'' deconstructs this with Hypnosis and [[VillainProtagonist Reviel]], who are both known for mass murder. Hypnosis is the more infamous of the two, but only because there are tales of a hero defeating him, making him paradoxically feared and a ButtMonkey. On the other hand, Reviel is less infamous because no hero has ever defeated him and because there are no survivors to recognize his face. As a result, people eventually forgot about Reviel despite his greater threat level, allowing him to blend into human society easily.

* ''{{VideoGame/Brigador}}'': includes the concept as a game mechanic. More dreaded mercenaries get more money, because their employers are willing to shell out more cash for them than for nobodies, but they also face heavier opposition because their enemies are willing to pull out the stops to kill them.

* ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'' and its sequel ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar'' have the protagonist Talion. By the end of the first game, orcs are talking about him like he's the boogeyman, and you can see why -- he slaughters enemy armies singlehandedly, he can effortlessly brainwash orcs to his side, and killing him only slows him down. This gets to the point where one possible trait for enemy captains is "Fear of the Gravewalker", which makes them shit their pants and run screaming in the other direction in reaction to your mere presence.

* By the time of ''DeadSpace3'', Issac Clarke has become this to the Unitologists, who even nicknames him "The Marker Killer", and for good reasons. In the earlier games, Issac had fought some of the [[EldritchAbomination biggest]], [[ZombieApocalypse ruthless]], [[TheVirus murderous]] and [[BodyHorror nastiest]] [[ParasiteZombie creatures]] the wide space has to offer and ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu won every single time]]''. He even beat the [[EldritchAbomination Golden]] [[ArtifactOfDoom Marker]] with ''just his mind''. It's even more impressive when he's really just a [[BadassNormal simple engineer trying to survive]]. In ''Awakened'', it's revealed he's also this to [[spoiler: the [[BiggerBad Brethren Moons]], as they deem him a threat to all of the Necromorphs and their plans to consume the human species, and so has to be killed by their own hands]].

** Nobody goes near Boston Common for fear of Swan, a hulking Super Mutant Behemoth who sleeps in the lake and wears a swan boat as armour. The area is littered with warning signs and the skeletons of those who failed to heed them. There's even a Railroad sign plastered up that's usually reserved for areas infested with Institute synths. Companions in your company will make nervous comments as you approach.

The area is littered with warning signs and the skeletons of those who failed to heed them. There's even a Railroad sign plastered up that's usually reserved for areas infested with Institute synths. Companions in your company will make nervous comments as you approach. Raiders chasing you will stop their pursuit if you enter, sometimes commenting that they'll let Swan deal with you.

** Mannimarco, the King of Worms, is a powerful [[OurLichesAreDifferent Lich]][=/=]{{Necromancer}} who has terrorized Tamriel since well before the time the main series of games takes place. He is perhaps second only to some of the more [[JerkassGods more malevolent]] [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]] in terms of the dread he inspires as, due to his mastery of TheDarkArts, he can not only kill you, but torture you for eternity with the pain of ''un''death. He serves as a major villain in ''Daggerfall'' and ''Oblivion'', and is TheDragon in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline''.

* Johnny Gat of the VideoGame/SaintsRow franchise. He may be TheLancer[=/=]TheDragon to [[PlayerCharacter The Boss]], but it's widely known he's more feared and avoided. Such a fear-inducing badass he is, that [[spoiler:BigBad of ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIv'', Zinyak, abducts him a full game in advance because even he feared Gat would be trouble.]]

* Sepulchure in ''ArtixEntertainment'' games fits this trope really well. In fact, anyone who isn't the hero or any of his/her allies or even King Alteon himself, or doesn't affilate with the Shadowscythe in any way is afraid of him. Even some of the Pactagonal Knights are scared shitless of him and his flying {{dracolich}} fortress of Shadowfall.
