** [[BitchinSheepsClothing Dahlia Hawthorne]] from ''Trials and Tribulations'' is this as well especially to [[OnlySaneMan Phoenix Wright]]. This is mainly because Phoenix knows how evil this woman is and hearing hear just brings dread to him (since she tried to kill Phoenix in the past so you can't blame in).

* [[spoiler:Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos]] has this effect on pretty much anyone around him in ''VideoGame/Persona2'' whenever he steps out of the shadows with party members noting that their personas are getting frightened. Even the poker-faced Baofu's blood turns to ice when this guy steps forward.

** The Tenno themselves, during the days of the Orokin, when they were viewed as terrifying myths. Their actual ''deployment'' was a sign that the Sentients had pushed the Orokin past the GodzillaThreshold.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** The Dragonborn in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' is one to the Dragons, being a mortal who has all of their powers and the ability to devour their souls. Listen carefully during your first fight with one and you can hear it [[OhCrap realise]] who it's dealing with. Considering they take half-damage from anything that isn't ''you'', it's pretty justified. The soundtrack during Dragon-fights is even titled "''The One They Fear''".
** The Dwemer ([[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwarves]]) were feared by the Nords, the Chimer and even the gods themselves. They were ruthless AbusivePrecursors who viewed everyone who wasn't them as guinea pigs for their mad science experiments, known for intentionally summoning demons to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu test their divinity]] and eventually possibly wiping themselves out by tinkering with the heart of a god.

** Though long extinct by the time the main series games take place, the [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] were rightfully dreaded in the backstory. They had an [[BlueAndOrangeMorality utterly incomprehensible and alien]] belief system while being by far the [[RealityWarper most]] [[{{Magitek}} technologically]] [[SteamPunk advanced]] race in the series. They were said to be feared by the [[OurElvesAreDifferent Chimer]] (ancestors of the Dunmer), [[HornyVikings Nords]], and even the ''[[OurGodsAreDifferent gods themselves]]''. The latter because the highly {{Naytheist}}ic Dwemer were known to summon [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Daedra]] just to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu put their divinity to the test]]. The only military force in history which truly challenged them was a [[ProudWarriorRace Nord army]] led by masters of the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]], and the Dwemer even defeated them after forming an EnemyMine with their rival Chimer. The only reason they aren't still around terrorizing the other races is because they did ''[[RiddleForTheAges something]]'' (involving the [[CosmicKeystone heart]] of a [[GodIsDead dead god]]) which caused their entire race to disappear at once.
** The Dragonborn [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' is one to the Dragons, being a mortal who has all of their powers and the ability to devour their souls. Listen carefully during your first fight with one one[[note]]"Dovahkiin Niid" translates to "Dragonborn [[BigNo Noo!]]" in Dovahzuul, the language of the Dragons[[/note]] and you can hear it [[OhCrap realise]] realize]] who it's dealing with. Considering they cannot be permanently killed by any other "mortal" (and take half-damage from anything that isn't ''you'', ''you''), it's pretty justified. The soundtrack during Dragon-fights is even titled "''The One They Fear''".

* ''VideoGame/{{Injustice 2}}'': just like in the comics, ComicBook/{{Brainiac}} is one of the most dangerous villains in the universe, one that Superman and Supergirl ''both'' fear, with Supergirl witnessing the destruction of Krypton by Brainiac firsthand and Superman believing there's no way he can even be defeated.

* [[Manga/ShinMazingerZero Mazinger ZERO]] in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV''. Pretty much everyone, hero and villain alike [[MassOhCrap sh*t their pants when it shows up]]. The [[Anime/ShinMazinger Myceane]] in particular are especially terrified of it, and for good reason. In this version of the ''ShinMazinger'' backstory, the war among the Gods was ended not in a stalemate or the Myceane being sealed away, but by [[OutsideContextProblem Mazinger]] [[EldritchAbomination ZERO]] simply showing up and ''wiping out both sides''.

** All the Vault Hunters to some extent. They are [[OneManArmy walking apocalypses]] who can take whatever Pandora or Elpis throws at them -- hostile wildlife, ten-foot-tall-robots, bandit armies, PrivateMilitaryContractors-you name it, they can drill it with bullets/whack it to death/blow it up and still survive to fight another day. And if they're working together, god help anyone who encounters them.

* The ''Videogame/Ace Attorney'' series gives us Manfred von Karma. The most feared prosecutor in the series who has went forty years without losing a case (until Phoenix defeats him). Manfred is well known for his intimating behavior managing to even get the Judge to obey his every command. Even [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Edgeworth]] at the time knows that Manfred is someone not to be trifled with.
