* 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''.

** Even more than the oni, there's the satori species whose defining trait is to [[PowerIncontinence compulsively]] [[{{Telepathy read minds]] [[MindOverManners out loud]]. This trait even makes them unwanted among the exiles of Former Gell and made one of them isolate herself in a huge palace in order to escape all prejudice and also drove her sister to give herself a PokeInTheThirdEye simply because all the fear and hatred of her became too much for her to bear.
** Popular fanon also holds that this is the reason Yukari Yakumo can survive and be [[RealityWarper as powerful as she is]] despite being [[OxymoronicBeing a youkai that doesn't attack humans]]: Her reputation alone is so fearsome that she only needs to make occasional appearances in order to sustain herself.

** The British [=FV215b=] (183). It has more than a few mobility problems, and a FixedForwardFacingWeapon that's hindered by that, but if you're ever in front of this thing, no matter what you're driving, you're getting ''[[OneHitKill evaporated]]''. Clever players are known to use its [[InstantDeathRadius Instant Death Wedge]] to clear out whole squads, as most players will bail out immediately if they're at risk of being in its crosshairs.

It's quite appropriately nicknamed the ''Death Star''.
