->''"She stopped, because she saw, for the first time in her life, by what sort of look one learns that a man is capable of killing."''
-->-- ''Literature/AtlasShrugged''

There are times even the DeadpanSnarker should know better and just shut up. This is especially true if the person being snarked at is giving him the Death Glare.

The Death Glare is a [[TranquilFury "calm", murderous look]] often coupled with a tensed and menacing posture, others with a deadly stillness, but (with the rarest of exceptions) is served with deathly silence. The Death Glare is hard to pull off, but, done right, can convey a depth of anger and potential violence that no BadassBoast or PreAsskickingOneLiner can hope to top.

This can be used by any character (yes, even ''that'' DeadpanSnarker) under BreakTheCutie, HeroicBSOD, or other highly trauma/emotion causing pressures. Again, someone who's gently (or violently) pressing their BerserkButton may get this as a warning to stop before some UnstoppableRage or DisproportionateRetribution is let loose.

Yeah, you really ''should'' BewareTheNiceOnes (or [[BewareTheQuietOnes the quiet ones]]).

See also LightningGlare, DeterminedExpression, and DisapprovingLook. Frequently executed with a KubrickStare. Not to be confused with EyeBeams or DeadlyGaze, which can ''literally'' kill with a look. If someone glares down something ''way'' bigger or more dangerous than them, they are StaringDownCthulhu. May be inflicted unintentionally by characters who unfortunately have the FaceOfAThug.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' has Sweden, whose facial expression is thought as a death glare by the other countries. However, he's not angry at anyone -- [[FaceOfAThug that's just how he always looks.]]
* In ''LightNovel/BokuWaTomodachiGaSukunai'', Kodaka has the FaceOfAThug, so sometimes he inadvertently does this to people, such as when he first arrives to class late and exhausted, and in episode 2, when he asks 2 classmates who are playing a game he's playing if they'd be willing to trade items with him. He does occasionally utilize this trope intentionally too, such as in episode 3 when Sena is getting hit on by 3 guys and is clearly uncomfortable around them.
* Anak from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' who sports this when she realizes she is facing her parent's murderer. Who just took her keepsake out of his mouth.
* Baki from ''Manga/BakiTheGrappler'' is a master of intimidating Death Glares. He can throw one even ''while kissing'' (and without letting his girlfriend notice that something is not right).
* The majority of characters in ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' can do this, with Roberta being the most notable of the bunch.
* Kanda's death glare in ''Manga/DGrayMan''. Complete with SlasherSmile, no less.
* Lucy from ''Manga/ElfenLied'', as well as any diclonius in KillAllHumans mode.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** Better not threaten to hurt Winry in front of Ed. You try and harm his automail mechanic, and you'll ''need'' an automail mechanic!
** Also Ed and Al's teacher. Just her normal gaze is enough to make them BlueWithShock, and her actual death gaze, well...
** And don't get on the bad side of [[GentleGiant Alex Louis Armstrong]]. If he looks at you that way, it's already too late. Enjoy the beating.
** Though he is nothing compared to his sister, [[FourStarBadass General]] [[ActionGirl Olivia]] [[MamaBear Armstrong]]. Her normal look has shades of this. When she gets angry, well... let's just say that she doesn't need her sword to kill you.
** If you harm one of Roy Mustang's subordinates, or worse, friends ([[TrueCompanions though they are often the same]]), prepare for the death glare to end all death glares... if you can even see it while burning alive. [[spoiler: Envy]] learned this the hard way.
** Aside of Rose, any character showing up for more than two episodes provides various examples.
* ''Manga/ZatchBell'': Gash uses a Death Glare that inexplicably stops the far stronger Vincent Bari in his tracks. Other characters have also exhibited death glares, but not to the extent that Gash does.
* Chikane Himemiya of ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'' will gladly Death Glare anyone who tries to bully Himeko Kurusugawa behind her back.
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'':
** Hibari, near constantly.
** Tsuna whenever he's in Hyper Dying Will Mode.
** This seems to be Xanxus' [[PerpetualFrowner default expression]]. Even Tsuna is still terrified of it.
* Kenshin of ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' is the absolute ''master'' of this. And at one point he faces Kurogasa, who has a literal death stare -- by glaring at an opponent with his ki, he paralyses them. It takes a strong-willed person to resist it.
* ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' has a serious clash between two military troops stopped by ''a single Death Glare'' from Admiral Wahlen. Reinhard von Lohengramm is a master of this, too.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi, after [[LookWhatICanDoNow showing off his new powers]] by totally [[TheWorfEffect worfing]] a group of {{Bounty Hunter}}s, manages to [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v24/c219/13.html scare their boss into submission]] with one. Late in the series, Negi seems to throw these around frequently, especially in his [[{{Bishonen}} aged-up form]].
* ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'': Kyon is in fact a DeadpanSnarker, receiving the Death Glare by Haruhi. Subverted in that Haruhi's intention was actually to give him a ''CareBearStare''.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Captain Yamato often gives one of these whenever Naruto and Sai are arguing.
** During his earlier appearances, it was usually mentioned that Gaara seemed to have this expression ''all the time''. Complete with a horrific SlasherSmile. [[spoiler:The slasher smile is under his mask of sand that he wears during his fight with Rock Lee.]]
** If they are not frowning, Sasuke and Neji are giving someone the death glare.
** Sasuke, in fact, has been known to hold entire conversations simply by holding a steady death glare and letting the other guy talk. This is amazingly effective, and he has driven opponents to the point of recklessness simply by doing this. It doesn't hurt that he has a ''literal'' [[RedEyesTakeWarning death glare]].
** Naruto gives one on chapter 538, one so damn potent and downright terrifying that even the GODDAMN KYUUBI was frightened.
** [[spoiler:Chapter 599 reveals that Tobi is in fact Obito Uchiha. Not only is there not a trace of Kakashi's teammate's former personality left, he also glares maniacally throughout chapter 560 as he rebukes Naruto and Kakashi's comments.]]
** [[spoiler:Tobirama and Hashirama]] give one each in rapid succession in chapter 620. The former's BerserkButton was pressed when [[spoiler: Sasuke]] threatened Konoha and the latter gave the former a DeathGlare to calm him down. Keep in mind, these two are [[spoiler:the '''First and Second Hokages'''.]] It's no wonder that [[spoiler: Orochimaru, Sasuke, Suigetsu and even the Third Hokage]] freaked out.
* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', this actually counts as a ''superpower'' that only the strongest pirates can use, called Conqueror's Haki.
** Luffy began developing the ability unconsciously. During the timeskip he has fully mastered it, along with the other two types...to the point where he can now use it to [[spoiler:knock out 50,000 enemies in three seconds.]]
** [[http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS2G0VoA1VfND-rVUjdH58cigEVsJxC5NaZteKVpXqrDfjsnHwWlnirT8qc Shanks]] was the first shown user, right in the beginning episodes . He used it to make a giant sea snake (that just bit off his freaking arm) shit itself and run away.
** Silvers Rayleigh uses it to make an entire room of attacking guards collapse. He then went on to train Luffy in it's use.
** Aside from Haki users, some people use non-superpowered versions:
** Roronoa Zoro has been accused on several occasions of having a "scary face". As we can see from this [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_KcIiusogo3U/SOEqv2Uy6zI/AAAAAAAABEI/X4q6fT73Uig/s320/zoro_irked.jpg one example]].
** Nami has also made some very scary faces. You do NOT want to make her angry. More often than not, Nami falls under the category of DemonHead.
** Boa Hancock gave Jinbe one when he started looking hungrily at a buffet Hancock [[ThroughHisStomach made for Luffy.]] He was only allowed a few bites. Though she has not yet been seen using it, she is also said to have the Conqueror's Haki.
** Dracule [[RedBaron "Hawk eyes"]] Mihawk. It has been said that the one thing that all his victims remember are his eyes.
* Every character in ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'' has done this at least once.
* It's the ''default expression'' of the main lead of ''Manga/AngelDensetsu''. You do not want to see him [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant actually glaring]].
* ''LightNovel/ToraDora'': Ryuuji, due to having the FaceOfAThug, tends to deliver these ''by accident.'' At one point he looked at Taiga while trying on some makeup for the role of a villain in a play and frightened her so badly she ''hit him.'' It gets even worse on the few occasions that Ryuuji is actually ''trying'' to look scary. The school festival race stands out in this regard.
%%** Taiga [[http://mangafox.me/manga/toradora/v03/c024/5.html is pissed]]. [[http://mangafox.me/manga/toradora/v03/c024/12.html/ She stares at a little bird]]. [[http://mangafox.me/manga/toradora/v03/c024/15.html The little bird has a heart attack]].
* Corporal Randel Oland from ''Anime/PumpkinScissors'' gets this whenever he goes into his equivalent of "berserk mode".
* Light pulls off a few of these at the end of ''Manga/DeathNote''. [[ShutUpHannibal Nobody cares]].
* Vita of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' is usually glaring angrily during combat. Those are all trumped by the genuinely ''murderous'' look she gives Nanoha (who's frozen in terror) during a surprise hospital visit to Hayate...
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** PlayedForLaughs with Captain Unohana who's YamatoNadeshiko personality makes her scary expression all the more jarring. She tends to use it to bring into line those who aren't normally scared of anything such as members of the 11th division or Ichigo.
** Played straight with [[AloofBigBrother Byakuya]]. When Zommari informs Byakuya that he intends killing [[{{Protectorate}} Rukia]], Byakuya's eyes narrow. [[KnightTemplarBigBrother And, yes, Zommari dies]].
** Yamamoto semi adopts this as his default expression [[spoiler: after his lieutenant's death]]. In his fight against [[spoiler: the fake]] Juha Bach, he whips out one that is about everything a DeathGlare should be. He's clad in his [[spoiler: Bankai's]] reiatsu which radiate a 15 million degree heat, his blade obliterates anything that touches the blade's edge, can summon the corpses of those he's killed, and can discharge the full power of his [[spoiler: Bankai]] into one compressed blast. And then he puts on [[http://mangabro.com/manga/bleach/chapter-508/page-9 this expression]]. At this point, normal people would be beyond relieving their bowels and would be shrieking for any shred of conceivable mercy from Yamamoto.
* ''Manga/SchoolRumble''. Eri did this to Harima when he bought her the wrong brand of tea.
* Seto Kaiba of ''Anime/YuGiOh'', according to {{Fanon}}, uses this all the time. In reality, he doesn't use it so much... unless your name is something other than [[MoralityPet Mokuba]]. Unsurprisingly, [[Anime/YuGiOhGX Kaiser Ryo]] has a very potent one of his own.
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''
** Theresia, a girl of about 12 years old, gives one of [[http://view.thespectrum.net/series/berserk-volume-01.html?ch=Volume+03&page=164 the scariest death glares]] of all time to Guts. He is [[{{Badass}} unaffected]] since he was deliberately trying to invoke this trope to keep Theresia from comitting suicide. And given [[BreakTheCutie what she's just gone through]] prior to this, one cannot blame the girl at all.
** Griffith. Just about all of the characters who have met with his [[ImpliedDeathThreat cryptic death glare]] have met with some [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident unfortunate]] [[IHaveYourWife events]].
** Guts too, as this is his most visible post-Eclipse expression next to his [[PerpetualFrowner scowl.]]
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'':
** A Super Saiyan is prone to give quite the death glare when pushed too far. Especially Goku and his eldest son [[BewareTheNiceOnes Gohan]]. Actually, their expression seems ''locked'' into this when they use it during a fight. The only time when a Super Saiyan is seen using other expressions while in its mode is while Goku and Gohan are living in their Super Saiyan forms to increase their power.
** Gohan's ultimate form in his fight with Buu is literally made of death glare, as part of his anger fueled power-up he always looks pissed in this form. Piccolo even commented about it.
** The Super Saiyan Three Death Glare is worse, because Goku looks truly murderous when transformed, and there's no hint of humanity behind it, as he looks like a primitive, wild hedgehog/human hybrid. Gohan's Super Saiyan II transformation has a similar effect, same as Goku's when he fought Majin Vegeta. Not having eyebrows makes it all the more effective.
* Lawrence, from ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'', in episode 4 of the second season. While he probably didn't intend to kill the stranger he rudely bumped into, he gave him a glare that made the much taller and tougher-looking guy back off instantly.
* Kenshiro and Raoh of ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' are masters of this trope.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. This trope + ScaryShinyGlasses = Gendou Ikari. Since his wife's death, he appears to be stuck into a '''permanent death glare''' he only lets up when [[HikaruGenjiPlan he's looking at Rei]].
* ''Manga/SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru''. Hotori insists that Kon add ridiculous ingredients to her cooking. Kon snaps, prompting a terrified Hotori to stand down.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** [[BigBad Grings Kodai]] from ''Anime/PokemonZoroarkMasterOfIllusions'' is such an evil, horrible person that [[spoiler: he awakens to find himself on the receiving end of a ''mass'' Death Glare from the cast, including two characters who are just now discovering what an evil person he is. The only sounds in the whole scene are his EvilGloating playing in the background over the TV network.]]
** Misty also tended to be a master of these. Especially when meeting Melody in Pokemon the Movie 2000.
** Pikachu gave Meowth a particularly hate-filled one [[spoiler:when Meowth revealed himself to be a HeelFaceMole]] in ''[[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Best Wishes!]]''.
** Before that, "Dues and Don'ts" had him give one to Team Rocket after he was unintentionally healed by the Delibird kicking its butt minutes before.
** Meowth himself gave a one-off villain a ''hilariously'' furious one before [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome slashing the crap out of him,]] to the point of ''[[ClothingDamage shredding the guy's clothes off]].''
** James is normally [[ExtremeDoormat submissive and timid]], but when Jessie and Meowth refused to help the heroes save some endangered baby Pokemon, he responded by ''glaring a hole through them'' until they agreed to help.
** ''Anime/PokemonTheMovieBlackAndWhite'' has Iris giving Emolga one after the latter used Volt Switch [[note]]A Gen V move where the user electrifies an opponent, using the flash to self-eject and switch places with an allied Pokemon[[/note]]. As this is a single-elimination tournament, this got Iris disqualified.
** Mewtwo from ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' does a frightening one before and during his rampage in the lab where he was created.
* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'':
** [[TheDevil Hild]] can cow even first-class goddesses with one meaningful look. Seemingly hereditary as her half-goddess/half-demon daughter Urd seems to be able to do it as well.
** YamatoNadeshiko postergirl [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Belldandy]] has a chilling one ready in the rare case someone is seriously abusing one of the people close to her. You need to [[MoralEventHorizon try really hard]] to get her to make one though. [[spoiler:When she thinks her ''Father'' is toying with Keichi about him passing or failing the final judgement about their ability to be together, she glares and the avatar of his form sweats and hides near Keichi.]]
* In ''Manga/BlackButler'', Sebastian gives the servants one of these after they laughed when Elizabeth placed a frilly pink bonnet on his head.
* Kenta Usui of ''Manga/{{Karin}}'' [[FaceOfAThug has a face that scares people even when he's not trying to]], similar to the Sweden example above. When he gets angry, though...
* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Sesshoumaru is good at this. He can scare away a ravening pack of {{youkai}}-wolves with a glare and once used it to terrify Kagome and Shippou into silence when he overheard them discussing healing his wounds.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'':
** In ''Anime/DigimonSavers'', [[spoiler:[=ShineGreymon=] gives Kurata one after assuming Burst Mode. It's filled with so much hate that you can practically hear [=ShineGreymon=] saying "I'm going to kill you". The UnflinchingWalk as he delivers the Death Glare combined with Kurata's OhCrap reaction to this only adds to it.]]
** We have one before that back in ''Anime/DigimonTamers'': when Beelzemon starts hammering home his FaceHeelTurn, [[BewareTheNiceOnes Takato]] gets angry enough that his glare becomes identical to Guilmon's when he's fighting, complete with HellishPupils.
* [[IceQueen Kaoru]] of ''Manga/VirginLove'' has one at his disposal for general use.
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'':
** Oda Nobunaga in the anime. He paralyses Masamune to the spot just by staring at him.
** This is pretty much Ishida Mitsunari's default expression.
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'':
** In episode 4, after Ryoko and Ayeka each trade an ArmorPiercingSlap with each other (Ryoko giving two to Ayeka) in the HotSpringsEpisode, Tenchi tries to break it up, only to met with a Death Glare from both.
-->'''Tenchi:''' Excuse me, ladies...\\
(''Ryoko and Ayeka GLARE'')\\
'''Tenchi:''' (''retreating back behind the rock'') Never mind.
** This is also what Airi Masaki uses to break the will of '''RYOKO'''. Washu states that it is part of the Neo-Academy fighting style, a martial art often employed during discussions and negotiation.
** ''Anime/TenchiInTokyo'': Those four ghosts in the first episode learned much too late about threatening the life of Tenchi Masaki. All ''SIX'' [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend women]] and even '''''[[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Ryo-Ohki]]''''' [[UpToEleven did not hesitate]] in displaying one ''en masse'' before [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown an onslaught of ass-kicking ensued]]. The ghost that looked like a Shinto Priest tried to call their bluff... only to end up eating Ryoko's MegatonPunch.
* ''Manga/MedakaBox'':
** Kumagawa, [[spoiler:when he was a villain]], had a ''really'' [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/medaka_box/v09/c071/15.html twisted look on his face]] when he got pissed off about [[spoiler: Zenkichi retrieving his vision.]]
** Also, when he recovers his original Minus. He couldn't look more calm....[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/medaka_box/v10/c088/17.html and more murderous.]]
* In ''Manga/{{Zetman}}'', Jin gives Akemi's pimp ex-boyfriend the [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/zetman/v01/c010/14.html definitive death glare.]] It's so scarily furious it borders on horrifying.
* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', you ''certainly'' don't want to be a servant of someone who can deliver a glare like [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/umineko_no_naku_koro_ni_episode_1_legend_of_the_golden_witch/v01/c003/27.html this]],at the end of the page.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'':
** Maka gives [[MagnificentBastard Medusa]] a truly '''murderous''' look during their final battle.
** PlayedForLaughs with Gopher in the manga, who frequently attempts these, but all he can pull off is [[http://animekritik.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/gopher.jpg a hilarious pouty inverted V-face]] that nobody can take seriously (at least until [[SuperOCD Death the Kid]] realizes that the V is very slightly asymmetrical.)
* Parodied in ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'' in which Kiyotaka's sister does this because she lost her contacts and was squinting real hard [[BlindWithoutEm in an attempt to see]].
* [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in ''Manga/MidoriNoHibi'' (pictured above) when [[{{Delinquents}} Seiji]] trying to teach [[NiceGuy Kouta]] how to be tough. Kouta tries to imitate it, with... [[http://www.tenmanga.com/chapter/MidorinoHibi26/170489-10.html less sucessfull result.]]
* '''V.B. Rose''': [[http://mangafox.me/manga/v_b_rose/v11/c063/8.html Yukari was a master at this as a young teenager.]] [[http://mangafox.me/manga/v_b_rose/v06/c031/10.html He uses it to his advantage as an adult.]]
* In ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'', it's generally referred to as using "Killing Intent". A prime example, is the meeting between Kenichi and his masters. HilarityEnsues.
* Hiei from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is really good at these along with being a hostile PerpetualFrowner. However, what is truly impressive is that when really pissed off, both Yusuke and Kurama managed to pull {{Death Glare}}s that make any of Hiei's look like fluff in comparison.
* Also by Yoshihiro Togashi, Gon from ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' can give one of the scariest death glares in anime history [[BewareTheNiceOnes if you manage to piss him off.]]
* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'':
** Eren has an [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/35f2c67a3fb0f2d48541173d70ba20d6/tumblr_mpi08wbJez1qdyi3xo7_400.png especially creepy one]] as a young child. [[spoiler:He pulls this face before killing two grown men with a knife to save a girl from being kidnapped.]]
** Hurt or threaten Eren in any way, and Mikasa will give you a ''terrifying'' one. [[spoiler:Levi]] must really be [[WorldsStrongestMan Humanity's Strongest soldier]], if he survived [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-AFPUYAqDnp4/UeIAB2LYowI/AAAAAAAAZXM/E7VtNtMTT9U/s1600/Attack+On+Titan+Episode+14+b12.jpg this]].
** Annie has a glare that could kill at 20 paces.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Tomoe Hotaru has a ''hell'' of a strong one, capable of sending [[EldritchAbomination lesser abominations]] into terror-paralysis. Which makes sense, as she's the current vessel of [[TheGrimReaper Sailor Saturn]], who may have ''invented'' this trope in a [[{{Reincarnation}} past life.]]
* ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' has [[GrumpyBear Kurogane]] and his death glare which he normally directs against [[TheNicknamer Fai]] and [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Mokona]]. Where enemies shake with fear, well... while Mokona at least seems ''slightly'' affected, Fai shows absolutely no indication of fear or uneasiness at all. Could be because Kurogane would [[HoYay never really hurt him]] but he would definitely hurt Mokona.
* Gennosuke and Hyoma from ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'' take this trope a little too literally, as they have to power to look at people and turn their killing intent against them, causing them to commit suicide on the spot. Naturally, using this power causes them to glare angrily at their victims while they're at it.
* In ''LightNovel/TheCircumstancesLeadingToWaltrautesMarriage'', the Valkyrie Waltraute has a glare that frightens anybody who sees it, even ''Odin''. When she meets her future husband Jack Elvan, the first thing that impresses her is that he is completely unaffected by it.
* Judau Ashta of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' throws one of these at Haman Kahn after [[spoiler:Haman shoots his little sister]]. This is notably the first time in the series we actually see real ''hatred'' in Judau's face, and this, backed up by his raw [[PsychicPowers Newtype powers]], causes the normally IronLady Haman to break down and flee in sheer terror, while every Newtype around for miles suddenly feels Judau's intense fury.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Comics and strips would often indicate a Death Glare with daggers.
* Franchise/{{Batman}} is one of the undisputed masters of these in comic book fandom, despite being a TechnicalPacifist.
** A good example was during the "Contagion" arc. Other members of the Bat-family are trying to disperse an angry mob, to no effect. Cue Batman appearing, pointing a finger, giving a Death Glare to the mob, and stating: "Disperse. NOW." It worked.
* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'':
** In ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'', our Man of Steel visits Lex Luthor in prison and implores him to put "that mind of [his]" to the good use of mankind, rather than insane schemes to kill Superman. What does Luthor do? Walks up the glass wall separating the two of them and hocks the mother of all lugies on it and just ''stares'' at Superman. [[BadassBoast Yikes]].
** Hell, once Superman was able to make [[RealityWarper Mxyzptlk]] go back to his own dimension just by giving him the look.
** Often, Superman uses this look in concert with his heat vision, giving him [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes.]]
* The same applies to [[ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo Miyamoto Usagi]].
* In the ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' album ''Asterix in Corsica'', this is a talent shared by every Corsican male, and they're not shy about using it on pesky foreigners.
-->'''Corsican:''' You can't tell the difference between a wild pig and a Corsican clan leader?\\
'''Obelix:''' I don't know, I've never eaten Corsican leader and please stop looking at me like that, it's giving me a headache.
* ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}''. The Saint of Killers' glare goes right past scary and into BringMyBrownPants territory:
-->'''Cassidy:''' ''(re: Jessie)'' If that were me, I'd be turning them white jeans brown.
* ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX'' #19. A group of mobsters have just [[TooDumbToLive dug up the remains of Frank Castle's family and filmed themselves pissing on the bones]] in an attempt to get the Punisher angry. Cut to a shot of him watching it on TV in a diner that shows it definitely got him mad.
** Hell, it's easier to point out when Frank Castle is NOT giving one of these. He's really not that big on talking to lowlife scum...
* In ''ComicBook/BodyBags'', Mack and Panda Delgado do this right before an off-panel ass beating, or when they are especially angry and plan to do something violent. Their angry green eyes fill up a panel when this happens.
* Dwight [=McCarthy=] caught a death glare from Miho in ''[[SinCity Sin City: The Big Fat Kill]]''. He was trying to stop her from torturing Jackie Boy to death (to give a good idea as to how brutal she was being). Once she gave him the look, he took a step back. Scaring a guy like Dwight is no easy task.
* ComicBook/TheSandman is also very good at the Death Glare. It probably helps that a) he can look like anything he wants, and b) his eyes usually look like bottomless holes of night. [[RedEyesTakeWarning Which turn red when he's angry]].
* Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'s look sent chills down Comicbook/ThePunisher's spine during their earlier encounters. The Punisher narrated it as being impossible to maintain eye-contact with Daredevil due to this trope. Eventually, the Punisher learned that Daredevil's tendency to stare straight through him wasn't a psych-out as much as Daredevil simply being blind.
* Comicbook/GhostRider's Penance Stare is a ''literal'' death glare. Backed up by being forced to feel every sin you've ever committed all at once.
* ScroogeMcDuck has the most terrifying [[RedEyesTakeWarning red-eyed]] scowl, memorably seen when he tore a steamboat apart. The glare is shown on pictures hung around walls in his employees' offices, as a reminder he's not to be trifled with. His [[DonaldDuck nephew]] has also used this ability.
* This is ComicBook/{{X-23}}'s default setting.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Lampshaded by the LemonyNarrator in ''FanFic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'':
--> ''My goodness, that face Miss Wormwood had would've made trees burst into flame.''
** Calvin gives one much later in "Nocturnals" that "would've chilled a six-pack."
* Adelle gave one to Hurdy in ''FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire'' when he was about to mention something that contradicted her claims.
* Shows up occasionally in ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm'', most of the time directed at protagonist and professional ButtMonkey [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]]. As for characters themselves, one of [[TheStoic Sonata's]] main traits is using these.
* ''FanFic/ClashOfTheElements'': All of the heroes give this to [[spoiler: Joe Dark]] after he finished [[spoiler: killing all of the Genesis Samurai]].
* In chapter 7 of ''Fanfic/AceCombatTheEquestrianWar'', [[spoiler: [[AceCombat04 Mobius]]]], upon his first appearance, stares down Razor, much to his shame.
* In Sekirei canon, Miya have such a powerful death glare it creates illusions of hanyas. InFlight uses this for humor, with Shirou trying to learn [[spoiler:(and eventually being succesful)]] her technique. WordofGod says it can leave a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Dead Apostle]] terrified.
* Quite a common trend in ''FanFic/DiariesOfAMadman'', particularly by the protagonist, Nav, who often does it when annoyed.
* In the {{Franchise/Godzilla}} and WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic crossover, ''FanFic/ShadowsOfGiants'', this is basically Godzilla's default face.
* In the ''BackToTheFuture'' fanfic ''FanFic/{{Homecoming}}'', Doc glares Biff into submission after the latter protests his punching Needles.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* "Glaring daggers" was, of course, taken to a twistedly literal degree in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''.
* ''TreasurePlanet'':
-->'''Jim Hawkins:''' If I'm not back in five minutes, leave without me.\\
'''Ben:''' I am not leaving my buddy Jimmy!\\
''(death glare)''\\
'''Ben:''' ... Unless he looks at me like that. Bye Jim!
** The sparks jumping between the cables Jim was holding at the time really helped to accentuate the glare.
* ''WesternAnimation/AstroBoy'' (2009 movie): Tenma has this one down. Employed several times against Stone, but the deathiest of all was against Orrin. It's amazing he didn't burst into flame.
* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail: Fievel Goes West'': The laaaaaaaaazy eye!
* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'': When Jack arrives at Oogie Boogie's place, he's pretty pissed already, but when Jack hears Sally scream (therefore finding out that she was down there), he gives a Death Glare that pretty much signed Oogie's death warrant.
-->'''Jack:''' ''(coldly)'' Hello, Oogie.
* Astrid gives one to Hiccup in ''Film/HowToTrainYourDragon'' when he wins out in dragon training over her.
* In ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'', Lady Tremaine does one when she realizes Cinderella was at the ball and got the prince. The shadows even darkened on her face.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'', when [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Bobby]] mentions that [[CoolLoser Max]] isn't on stage at the Powerline concert, thus implying that Max lied to [[GirlNextDoor Roxanne]] (which he did), [[ShipperOnDeck Stacey]] gives him a big nasty one. However, that didn't stop them from [[HookedUpAfterwards hooking up afterwards]] once Max ''did'' end up on stage.
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'': ComedicHero Po is on the receiving end of plenty of glares. In the second movie, Po has balked at killing Lord Shen so Tigress forbids him to come with them. When Po insists otherwise, Tigress turns suddenly and hits him with a glare so intense the collected kung fu badasses present all get an OhCrap look. It seems to cause a small circle of dust to kick up for a brief second, and we never get to see the expression, making the intention and thought of it that much more powerful.
* ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride'': Emily is normally very kind and free-spirited but she gives a rather terrifying one towards Victor upon finding out that [[spoiler:he lied to her simply so he can get back to Victoria]].

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/{{Thor}}'': Loki stares menacingly at Sif in the throne room while he leans slightly forward in her direction. His eyes and body language seem to say, "I ''dare'' you to talk back to your king."
* ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'' shows us how it's done a whole bunch of times. Literally, even: There's no way to read that glare William gives the closest guy, moments before his rebellion begins, as saying anything other than a very emphatic and determined "I'm going to kill you now."
* Creator/ClintEastwood's iconic ClintSquint usually takes the form of a Death Glare. There's a reason he's been referred to as the "father of the murder eyes."
* Creator/LeeVanCleef usually wears a perpetual sneer while playing villains that is enhanced by his narrow eyes and hawkish face.
* The Princeton pot dealer receives one from Kumar in ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle'' after first overcharging him for weed and then trying to hone in on his hot British twin action.
* JackNicholson is another career Death Glarer, such that he's one of the TropeCodifiers for the KubrickStare. If he hit his personal best in ''Film/TheShining'', it's not for lack of competition. Sometimes he pairs it with a SlasherSmile for added effect.
* Jonathan, the obsessive/traumatized Scottish soldier in ''[[Film/JoyeuxNoel Joyeux Noël]]'' who had his brother killed earlier. He looked very much about to kill a German soldier who was offering him champagne, before the German wisely walked away.
* In ''Film/{{Twilight}}'', Edward scares off four thugs with lecherous intents with nothing more than a death glare... and a healthy dose of DrivesLikeCrazy. And an almost animal-like snarl. And, given the fact that he IS a vampire, perhaps a bit of Magic as well.
* MerylStreep in ''Theatre/{{Doubt}}'', about seventy-three times, all terrifying.
* MerylStreep glares at everyone within range in ''TheDevilWearsPrada''.
* ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''. The first reveal of Indy.
* ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom''
** The big, hulking Thuggie guard is about to beat the living snot out of the slave child... when the mining cart rolls up and the lantern illuminates a very pissed-off Indiana Jones. We next get the cutaway of the guard sliding to a stop about 20 feet away.
** And let's not forget Mola Ram himself, with his bulging eyes of epic doom. There was a reason they cast Amrish Puri in the role after all....
* The Death Glare is the WeaponOfChoice for the Antichrist in ''Film/TheOmen'', capable of brainwashing or downright scaring people to death. It can also be used by proxy via animal familiars like crows or dogs.
** Mrs. Baylock, Damien's nanny, seems to have a knack for this as well, as seen with her [[spoiler: moments before she kills Kate Thorn.]]
* Uma Thurman pulls off some truly amazing ones in ''KillBill''. Particularly notable is the one directed at O-Ren Ishii in the scene where she's about to fight the Crazy 88.
* Juan Miranda in ''Film/AFistfulOfDynamite'' actually directs a death glare to the heavens themselves, no doubt piercing paradise and burning a hole through God in it's wake.
* In ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', Jake Sully gets hit with an entire Na'vi tribe's worth of glare during his first night at Hometree.
* ''TheSoundOfMusic'': Captain von Trapp delivers some of these towards anyone who has opposed him.
* ''GetShorty'': "Look at me." Plays with the trope, because the point is that when "Chili" Palmer says it, he doesn't look particularly intense or angry. From the book:
-->"I'm thinking, You're mine, I fuckin own you. What I'm ''not'' doing is feeling anything about it one way or the other. You understand? You're not a person to me, you're a name in my collection book, a guy owes me money, that's all... It's [[NothingPersonal nothing personal, it's business]]. The guy misses, he knows what's gonna happen."
* At the end of the ''ThreeTenToYuma'' remake, Ben Wade gives [[spoiler: his gang]] a hateful stare, after [[spoiler: the death of Dan]], a man he had come to respect and like. They realize what that means and reach for their guns. It doesn't help.
* Subverted in the fourth ''{{Rambo}}'' movie. Rambo gives some loud-mouthed mercenary called Lewis the Death Glare. The mercenary, however, just points out that he has seen this look a million times and isn't impressed at all. This example is also interesting in that both characters, Rambo and the mercenary, retain their badassness.
* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld''
** Kim Pine more or less has this as her default expression. One notable instance is when Scott insists she's over their breakup. Pan to Kim's glare, complete with AudibleSharpness.
** Todd, Envy, and Julie all simultaneously give Knives one when she speaks, complete with "GLARE" written over their heads.
* ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean''
** In ''Curse of the Black Pearl'', Jack Sparrow delivers a formidable one when he [[spoiler:shoots Barbossa to death]]. It's all the more effective since, up 'til that moment, the generally-cheerful pirate hadn't sported any expressions [[http://www.deppimpact.com/gallery/albums/caps_pirates/pirates1096.JPG remotely like it.]]
** Sparrow's dad, 'Keeper Of The Code' Teague (KeithRichards) may have taught Jackie his stuff. At a particularly noisy point during the Brethren Court meeting, it was suggested the Pirate Code would not be honored. Teague snapped a guitar string & bestowed a glower that silenced the whole rowdy lot.
** Davy Jones can also do a killer stare. When he snarls "Do ya fear death?", ''everybody'' takes him seriously.
** The look one of Sao Feng's bath attendants gives Beckett's Dragon after he shoots the other should've ''incinerated'' the man, by all rights.
* Creator/DanielDayLewis is well known for his ability to perform these. One of his most intense ones is directed at the character of Eli Sunday in ''Film/ThereWillBeBlood'' during his humiliating confirmation at the Church of the Third Revelation.
* Played literally straight in the ''Film/{{Puppetmaster}}'' movies, as Blade, the apparent "leader" of the puppets, has daggers set in his eye sockets which are only able to be clearly seen when someone is guaranteed to die.
* Blind Mag gives two of these to Rotti Largo in ''RepoTheGeneticOpera'': Once, when he jokingly tells her that she 'belongs to GeneCo', and the second is less subtle during ''Chromaggia'', where she sings the line, [[spoiler:"I would rather be... blind!"]] and then she [[spoiler:rips out her eyes in a final act of defiance, rather than have her eyes repossessed by Nathan]].
* Both superhero/angel beings in ''{{Hancock}}'' have these, right after their BerserkButton is pushed. It's quite humorous.
* Hermione Granger lays down some ''scathing'' eyebeams o' doom throughout the ''Film/HarryPotter'' film series.
* Edward James Olmos' character pulls a pretty good Death Glare on his girlfriend in ''Film/AmericanMe''.
* Matsu, the protagonist of the ''Film/JoshuuSasori'' series, is largely silent, but has a superb line in Death Glares, producing fear, anger and insecurity in whoever they're directed at. Particularly when [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge repeatedly stabbing people]], but most effectively when bound hand and foot, lying in a puddle, in solitary, having just been covered with a sopping wet blanket; her abuser laughs in her face...until she sees Matsu stare back -- and grin.
* Every single BruceLee film is famous for this. The scary part about it is even when he is not pissed at anyone he still stares like that. It's more frequent in ''Film/EnterTheDragon'', when he confronts Ohara and Han.
%% * Ed Norton in ''Film/AmericanHistoryX''.
* Just about every carnivorous dinosaur in the ''Franchse/JurassicPark'' movie trilogy has this ominous glare. Special mention goes to the velociraptor in the kitchen in the [[Film/JurassicPark first movie]] and the pterodactyl in the third.
* ''Film/IronSky'': Klaus gives a genuinely ''frightening'' glare to Kortzfliech when the latter begins the invasion of Earth. Perhaps unsurprisingly, [[TheDragon Klaus kills Kottzfleich shortly afterwards and takes command of the invasion fleet himself.]]
* ''Film/{{Glory}}'': Trip (played by DenzelWashington) gives a death glare to his commanding officer (played by Matthew Broderick) while the latter's order of punishment by [[ATasteOfTheLash whipping]] is being carried out on him. And given that as a slave Trip was whipped many times before, Trip doesn't flinch while being whipped; he just stares down Shaw.
* A literal example gives the title to ''Film/TheMenWhoStareAtGoats''. George Clooney's character [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin stares at a goat]] for a few seconds. It keels over a few seconds later.
* Two examples from ''{{Film/Superman}}'':
** After crashing Luthor's lair, Superman gave Otis one when he tries to get his cape.
--->''"I don't think he wants me to, Mr. Luthor."''
** Jor-El got one from Ursa before he sentenced General Zod and company to the Phantom Zone.
* ''{{The Fast And The Furious}}'': The look Dom gives Brian during the UndercoverCopReveal. Brian is clearly very nervous under the glare.
* In ''Film/UpstreamColor'', a mysterious man has the supernatural ability to remotely spy on the lives of certain people. While spying, he's presented as if physically beside his victims. In the end, one of his victims suddenly levels a death glare directly at him, revealing that she's become aware of his intrusions.
* A RunningGag in ''Age of Treason'' has Literature/MarcusDidiusFalco hiding his face every time he encounters a statue of the deceased emperor Nero, [[PrivateEyeMonologue while thinking]] in panic ''The eyes!'' It's implied that Nero caught Falco in bed with one of his mistresses. Presumably Nero caught a good look at Falco before he ducked out the window, and so Falco lives in constant fear of Nero's gaze falling on him again, even after the emperor is long gone.

[[folder:Literature]]
* Pretty much every member of The Flock in "Literature/MaximumRide" has one, with Max's being particularly powerfull, at times even working on Fang, Erasers and grown men.
* Kristy's "Look" in ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub''.
* In ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' series, it is used by Percy in ''Son of Neptune''.
--> He'd perfected his wolf stare over the last few months - a look that said: ''However bad you think you are, I'm worse''.
* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''
** In ''The Return of the King'', Aragorn and army meet up with Sauron's "ambassador" at the Black Gate. While the "ambassador" rants on and on, Aragorn just glares at him, never saying a word, never moving a muscle. He is so taken aback by Aragorn's spiteful gaze that he eventually shudders and exclaims that he has been practically assaulted at parley (a BIG no-no) before riding off. Of course, in the novel continuity sufficiently pure-blooded Númenóreans have ''psychic powers'', so it could have been more than just staring. In the extended cut of TheMovie, a death glare wasn't deemed [[ViewersAreMorons quite enough]], and Aragorn does indeed [[ShootTheMessenger assault the ambassador at parley]], hacking his head off. Gimli tersely observes "[[BondOneLiner I guess that concludes negotiations.]]"
** When Éowyn kills the Witch-King's flying beast and sends it falling to the ground with him still on the saddle, he stands back up and gives her an epic death glare without even having a face or eyes. He was about to kill her anyway, but now it's personal!
** The most impressive one comes from Gandalf, however. Of course, when he did it to Bilbo, it was accompanied by special effects going for the more than ordinary effect described in the book.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''
** Tywin Lannister has perfected the glare into a downright artform. At one point a story is recounted in which a lord repeated an old joke about how Tywin was so rich he "must shit gold." Tywin's only response was to look at the man. Long after the laughter had died down, and throughout the rest of the feast, Tywin didn't look away. Eventually the lord had to flee the room to escape his gaze.
** Aeron Greyjoy is also well-known for his death glare, which has an in-universe reputation for souring wells and rendering women infertile.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''
** Lord Havelock Vetinari. Just him looking at you may count as a Death Glare. Not to mention when he ''raises his eyebrow''. Ooh, you don't wanna be in the same room when he does that...
** Sam Vimes ''freezes''.
--->''"The chill radiated off him. The lines of his face locked like a statue."''
** In ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'' after Vimes frightens the ambassador of a hostile state into pulling his/their armies back till they're practically in the next country:
--->'''Vetinari:''' Apparently you also looked at the ambassador in a very threatening way.\\
'''Vimes:''' It was only the way I usually look.\\
'''Vetinari:''' To be sure.
** Granny Weatherwax is fond of these Death Glares, and may use magic to augment them. (One usage in ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'' is described explicitly as a "thousand-kilowatt diamond blue stare." She stares down a theater patron all the way to the ground.) At one point she and another witch get into a duel that consists of them both performing a Death Glare on the ''sun''. And when someone came close, he got instantly sunburned. Granny lights fires by tossing some logs into the fireplace and ''staring'' at them until they burst into flames. You do not get much more deadly than that.
** Mr. Slant, a zombie lawyer, manages to pull one these off on opposing lawyers in ''Discworld/MakingMoney''. Knowing 200 years worth of law and precedent because you were there to make it can be quite intimidating.
** A favourite weapon of Keldas to keep the Nac Mac Feegle in line, to the point where the mere thought of it can terrify them.
** Dios of {{Discworld/Pyramids}} has one that's so effective people are honestly surprised that he doesn't have EyeBeams. When looking for an escaped prisoner, one finds oneself looking for lines of molten rock as he scans the room and walls.
* Charles Morgan from ''Literature/WitchWeek'', while not always meaning to glare at anyone, is described as having a "blank and nasty" look which is generally magnified by his thick glasses.
* Richard from ''TheSwordOfTruth'' throws these around fairly frequently. It's apparently a trait common to the [[spoiler:Rahl]] family. The novel ''Blood of the Fold'' has a scene where Richard silences a near-riotous crowd by glaring at them.
* In the ''{{Everworld}}'' series, the witch Senna Wales often uses these, to good effect; no outburst ever intimidates the others the way a flat stare from her GrayEyes does. Her confrontations with her half-sister([[SiblingYinYang the two hate each other]]) often consist of April being passionately, furiously angry, and Senna staring back all cold and contemptuously. Christopher states that Senna's glare basically says, "I'll crush you in my own good time."
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** Molly Weasley has been described as a short, plump, motherly woman, and generally doesn't look very threatening, but if you piss her off, ''you will know about it''. Her glare is capable of terrifying even her twin sons Fred and George (both of whom have otherwise never shown any signs of cowardice), and even scares innocent bystanders (such as Harry himself in book 2). Even her own husband, also a brave and courageous individual, is reduced to nervous mumbling under her glare.
** Professor Minerva [=McGonagall=] is also capable of giving students "the sort of look that scorches."
** Hermione Granger can do it too -- when Ron teased her in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' about her self-enforced fast in protest of Hogwarts's employment of house-elves, she "gave him a look so reminiscent of Professor [=McGonagall=] that he gave up."
** And Harry too. After he suffers another horrible vision in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'', Hermione berates him for not learning to block it and then makes the mistake of asking if he liked it. The glare he gives her for that makes her apologize quickly.
* In ''Literature/JoesWorld'' books by EricFlint, Greyboar's glare is referred by [[IHaveManyNames several names]], such as "The Mirror of Imminent Mortality," "Basilisk," or "Time to reconsider."
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
** In ''Literature/{{Changes}}'', Harry meets Agent Tilly. One word and a look from Tilly is able to send SmugSnake Rudolph running from the room. Quite impressive, as the only other things that have been able to accomplish this were a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent loup-garou]] and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent a scourge of Red Court Vamps.]] Harry's narration mentions that some people have one hell of a glare, that just the way they look at you gives you a little glimpse into the eyes of Death himself. Tilly is one of those people.
** Harry himself probably posseses a seriously deadly glare, which he wouldn't know being behind it. But when he looks at Cowl and Kumori in ''Literature/DeadBeat'' they visibly sway backward (Or maybe that was just the wind).
* ''Literature/PaddingtonBear'''s infamous "hard stare."
* In ''Literature/LordOfLight'', Yama's eyes can cause attacking men to drop their weapons and run. Being a MasterSwordsman and the god of death could have something to do with it, though. Except that Yama ''does'' in fact have EyeBeams, too, which is ''why'' he's the god of death.
* [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]] has, through a combination of osmosis and deliberate study of his near legendary grandfather and parents (as well as interactions with several veteran military personnel and senior government officials), learned to project quite an intimidating glare of his own, as his cousin Ivan discovers in ''A Civil Campaign''.
* ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo''. This, along with the occasional PsychoticSmirk, has various characters outright terrified of him.
* Atticus Finch from ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'', in true [[TheSoCalledCoward So-Called Coward]] fashion, deploys a death glare now and then.
-->Atticus turned his head and pinned me to the wall with his good eye.
* StephaniePlum manages one in ''To The Nines'' as she's repeatedly being pulled aside for random security checks at an airport, calmly imagining murdering every annoying person around her in a particularly violent way. She doesn't let on what she's thinking, but Lula comments on how creepy Stephanie's suddenly gotten.
* In the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' graphic novel ''After the Flood'', Leafstar proves herself very capable of giving death glares. One of them is enough to make her mate drop the prey he's carrying.
* In ''Literature/InannasDescentToTheNetherworld'', Ereshkigal uses a Death Glare on her sister Inanna that actually ''causes'' Inanna to die. [[spoiler: Later, when she comes BackFromTheDead and needs to find someone to take her place, and sees her husband Dumuzi living it up instead of mourning, she uses it on him.]]
* At the start of ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear'', Uncle Hoole is a ResentfulGuardian to the point where when [[OrphansOrdeal one of his charges]] comes into his room after knocking, he scares the kid with shapeshifting, tells him off in a threatening way, and turns a "gaze like a blaster bolt" on him. ...He warms to the kids, but it takes a while.
** Later in the series, Tash [[spoiler: [[GrandTheftMe has her body taken over by a thug]].]] Her brother, unaware, talks to her, but "Tash's glare was like the blast of a turbolaser."
* Late in ''Literature/DrFranklinsIsland'' Semi tries to give one of these to Doctor Skinner, to enhance the [[WasOnceAMan She Was Once A Girl]] effect that seeing her has on him.
--> I stayed where I was, staring up at him as meanly as I could. Manta rays are not very mean by nature, but I did my best to look nasty and accusing.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Brienne of Tarth gives Ser Jaime Lannister a ''very'' menacing one in "Dark Wings, Dark Words" when he goes way overboard with the gay jokes about Lord Renly Baratheon, whom she harboured unrequited feelings for. Brienne also shoots daggers from her eyes when the Kingslayer insults her for [[spoiler:being unable to protect her king in "Kissed by Fire."]]
** Tywin's televised self lives up to his reputation from the books. Somehow, the idea of Tywin Lannister simply ''glaring'' at you is worse than the thought of him sicking The Mountain on your ass. Only a few people have been able to match him: young Arya Stark and Tywin's son Tyrion. Bonus points for his actor being Creator/CharlesDance, whose other roles have given him ample practice.
* Series/{{Sherlock}} pulls off a truly epic one in ''A Scandal in Belgravia''. Upon arriving back at Baker Street to discover evidence of [[spoiler: Mrs. Hudson being held by CIA agents]], he [[SherlockScan fingers the scratches in the wallpaper]], [[AwesomebyAnalysis plays out what happened in his mind]]... and then [[TranquilFury quietly]] [[KubrickStare looks up the staircase]] with eyes that say “People are going to DIE.”
* ''Series/{{Battlestar GalacticaReimagined}}'':
** Adama is known for his glare. He prefers to get right in people's faces when he does so for maximum intimidation, although when he is further away it isn't much of an improvement. Notable instances include toward Starbuck in "Act of Contrition" and Athena in "Sine Qua Non". Olmos' glare in "Act of Contrition" was reportedly so terrifying that Katee Sackhoff, who plays Starbuck, thought Olmos was actually going to hit her! Heck, the Adama Glare has its own page on the [[http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Adama_Glare Battlestar Wiki]]. It's like a punch to the soul. The effect of Adama's death glare is also well illustrated in [[http://theslackerz.com/index.php?nav=Comic&Page=69 this]] comic...
** Special props to Dr. Cottle, the only character in the series to withstand an Adama Glare without side effects. Dr. Cottle is just THAT awesome. In the words of the BSG wiki: "''So far, the only Colonial immune to the Adama Glare is Doctor Cottle, who is able to scowl intensely himself while making important medical decisions. Helena Cain resisted a Glare once, but the strain resulted in permanent back problems, exacerbated psychotic tendencies, and future vulnerability to the Adama Growled Ultimatum, a much weaker psychological weapon that fails to affect even D'Anna Biers on a later occasion.''"
** Notably, in the mutiny episodes, Gaeta proves to be, if not completely resistant to the Adama Death Glare, then at least able to stonewall it for a good while. Adama ''really'' should have respected Gaeta a bit more...
** Helo kills Athena, his wife, because as an ArtificialHuman who gets better if killed, she will resurrect near their kidnapped daughter to rescue her. President Roslin berates Helo for possibly compromising the fleet's security, at which point he just stands up... and being much, ''much'' taller than her, and given she had faked their child's death earlier in the series which made the little girl's kidnapping possible, he gives her a glare that makes it look like he might very well double his homicide count for the day. Roslin wisely pipes down and hides behind Adama while talking to him for the rest of the scene.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'':
** In the episode "Out of Gas", where Mal slams Wash into the wall and gives him a vicious glare while ordering him back onto the bridge. The sheer force of personality in this scene is so powerful that it makes Jayne recoil defensively.
** Jayne is constantly under fire from these. In "Objects in Space", Jayne makes an offhand comment about not wanting River on the ship. Mal, who'd already tried to [[ThrownOutTheAirlock throw him out the airlock]] at the end of "Ariel" for ratting her and Simon out to the Alliance, leans in real close and asks Jayne if that's the direction he wants this conversation to go, complete with a seriously scary Death Glare.
** Simon can stare deadly when he thinks River is threatened. In "Safe" he does this to his father; in "Ariel", Jayne is on the receiving end in the "back off" scene. And a few times he and Mal have a mutual glare. Simon's glares don't exactly look death-like because of his fragile appearance. However, they certainly look awesome.
** River delivers one of these, coupled with a KubrickStare, at Jayne in "Trash". Later in ''Serenity'', River gives these to [[spoiler:the wall of Alliance commandos as she prepares to do to them what she just did to the Reavers]].
** Also happens in [[Film/{{Serenity}} the Big Damn Movie]] when [[TokenEvilTeammate Jayne]] is ripping into Mal's leadership abilities by talking about how Mal got all the men in his unit killed back in the war. Zoe, the ship's second in command and only other survivor of Mal's unit, just gives Jayne [[TranquilFury a calm look]] and says "You wanna leave this room." Jayne, who is usually a muscle bound oaf without a clue, mutters, "Damn right I do," and does just that.
* ''Series/TwentyFour'':
** David Palmer is the ''master'' of the Death Glare. He's scarier than Jack at times, and that's hard to pull off.
** Jack himself is no slouch when it comes to the Death Glare either; at one point, he completely subverts the JackBauerInterrogationTechnique, breaking [[spoiler:President Charles Logan]] by simply ''staring'' at him.
* ''Series/StargateSG1'':
** Teal'c is the master. In one episode, even though a suspect ''knew'' that Teal'c was only present to intimidate him, he was babbling everything he knew within a minute without a word of questioning being uttered. The scene goes like this: the prisoner is sitting in an interrogation room, handcuffed. Teal'c sits at the table across from him and simply begins glaring at him without ever saying a word. The prisoner immediately catches on that they think Teal'c will intimidate/bully him into talking, saying it won't work. A few more minutes of silent staring later and the guy snaps. (Entering the room whilst subtly reminding his victim that he is probably the strongest person on base simply by flexing his jaw muscles also helps.)
** Daniel has been [[spoiler:turned into a Prior]], and is understandably considered very dangerous. Woolsey informs SG-1 that he's recommended to the President that they kill him. Mitchell stands up and gives him a look, and Woolsey steps behind Landry and stays there for the rest of the scene.
* In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "The Die Is Cast", [[MagnificentBastard Garak]] reminisces with his former boss on how he once broke a prisoner during interrogation by simply staring at him from across the table for some lengthy period of time.
--> '''Tain:''' And afterwards he just kept saying "his eyes... his eyes..." I'd never seen anything like it!
* Aeryn Sun off ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' is very prone to these. Often followed by lots of gratuitous violence.
* Captain Janeway of the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' has her own [[FanNickname Glare of Death]] which is the opposite of Janeway's other favorite expression: the [[PuppyDogEyes Big Gooey Look]].
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'':
** Captain Kirk shoots off a pretty good one at Dr. [=McCoy=] in the episode "The Trouble with Tribbles". Doubly impressive in that he's buried up to his chest in dead tribbles at the time. It probably helps that they had to drop those tribbles on Shatner something like 38 times.
** Charlie from "Charlie X" sports one when he's about to whisk someone into oblivion or perform some other horrific act of reality warping.
* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'':
** Scott Bakula can be VERY good at the "Death Glare". In the episode where [[ItMakesSenseInContext where religious fundamentalists]] take over the ''Enterprise'' and have killed at least one of his crewmen, Captain Archer gave a very [[SeriousBusiness deadly glare]] at the religious leader sitting in his chair in the Captain's quarters. As the fundamentalist religious leader makes demands to Archer, the glare got even DEADLIER.
** A blooper scene showed Jolene Blalock (playing {{The Spock}}-like T'Pol) forgetting her line and breaking down in nervous giggles when Scott Bakula (playing an evil MirrorUniverse Captain Archer) moves menacingly towards her with his glare on Full Power.
* Hilariously Parodied and otherwise PlayedWith in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', with the Janitor giving J.D. the Death Glare with the song "{{Koyaanisqatsi}}" by Music/PhilipGlass played. When someone walks in between them, he briefly pauses to politely ask him to move out of the way. He later organizes a "group-glare" aimed at Carla, and rebukes Ted because the best Ted can manage is a sad glare. See both examples [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOqtnU2faTc here]].
* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'':
** In "Dungeons & Dragons", Charley has a talk with [[RobotGirl Cameron]], and compares her to Vick, a deactivated Terminator who she has been casually skinning and bagging. Once he calls her a "very scary robot," the normally emotionless and stoic Cameron gives him a sudden Death Glare, sets Vick's "corpse" on fire, and tells him "It's not safe for you here." Charley, understandably, runs the hell away.
** Her death glare is very good for intimidating fellow students as well, though one nerdish boy on Pizza Day seems rather turned on by the experience. "Hectic!"
** John gives his fair share of death glares later in the series as well; two that come to mind are to the Terminator attempting to kill Bedell and to Jesse.
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'':
** Gibbs does this in almost every interrogation. His is so powerful you can [[RightBehindMe feel it aimed at the back of your head]].
** Ziva also does a fantastic one near the end of the season five episode "Stakeout".
** Tobias Fornell has an entirely adequate death glare of his own, usually aimed at [=DiNozzo=]. One time when he and Gibbs tag-team for an interrogation, the subject of their mutual glare starts spilling the beans in ''seconds''.
** Leon Vance is one of the few people immune to the Gibbs Glare, mainly due to having one of his own. When the two of them get into a Glare Down, the backscatter literally has other characters fleeing the room.
* In ''NoahsArc'' Malik taunts Wade at the wedding about [[spoiler:Noah cheating on Wade with him. Wade delivers several death glares before giving him a solid punch to the face]].
* ''Series/CriminalMinds''. Given the kind of scum they deal with on a regular basis, most of the BAU has done this at one time or another. However, Hotch's is the most frequently seen, and the most legendary. Often precedes or follows the subspecies of AwesomenessByAnalysis known as a Hotchalanche.
** E.G. (from 4x03, "Minimal Loss"):
-->'''Colorado AG:''' Who the hell are you?\\
'''Hotch:''' I'm Aaron Hotchner, Unit Chief. I'm the guy who's going to tell the attorney general of the United States whether to charge you with obstructing a federal investigation or negligent homicide. ''(pause)'' Get off my crime scene. ''(DEATH GLARE)''
* DCS Foyle from ''FoylesWar'' is a master of the cutting remark, especially against those who garner his contempt rather than his sympathy. But his most effective riposte was to a British pro-fascist politician in "The White Feather". Annoyed that this upstart detective is refusing to let him leave merely because a murder has been committed, the politician asks Foyle if he's Jewish. Foyle just stares coldly at him for a long moment, then walks out without bothering to reply.
* Delenn assumes such a look for seemingly her entire journey from Minbar to ''Series/BabylonFive'' in the episode "Severed Dreams". She chases off an assault fleet from Earth with the stare and the words "Why not? Only one Human captain has ever survived battle with a Minbari fleet. He is behind me. You are in front of me. If you value your lives, ''be somewhere else!''" (Note that when the ''B5'' CMOA page was put to crowner, this moment won.)
** Her death glare reappears in "Atonement" when she figures out how to prevent her inquisitor from forcing her to leave Sheridan.
** And again, with the phrase "end this," when first contact with the Drakh ends in her killing every one of them in sight.
** The [[spoiler:when she is well over 130 years old, on the anniversary of the formation of the InterStellar Alliance, two "historians" and a political pundit gloss over facts and embellish lies to cover the wide gaps in their knowledge of history. They are on Earth. Delenn traveled from Mimbar just to say her husband was a good man and then when they tries to get her to stay, she made each one turn with an impressive glare the likes of which they had never seen.]]
** G'Kar gives Vir ''the mother'' of all death glares before delivering his deathly chilling "dead...dead...dead..." monologue. It was chilling, at least in part, because G'Kar also sliced open his own hand, and was intoning "dead...dead...dead..." as each drop of blood fell to the floor.
** In one episode Sheridan manages to piss of Kosh so much, that he manages to give him a death glare with just the single camera eye of his robot suit.
* One ''HomeImprovement'' episode, appropriately titled "The Look", revolved around the evil glare that wives give their husbands whenever they screw up big time. Or, in [[MommasBoy Al's]] case, mothers to their sons.
* In ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' Season 1, [[MagnificentBastard Nathan Petrelli]] often deployed a priceless Death Glare against [[IdiotHero his little brother Peter]] when the latter was saying or proposing to do something especially dumb.
** The Death Glare is back in "Shades of Gray", [[spoiler: after Danko defenestrates Nathan from the n~th floor of a high rise building. Nathan glares a whole catalogue of insults at him before booming off.]]
** Claire Bennet uses the Death Glare for more defensive purposes. Once activated, she becomes immune to all forms of psychological warfare. She can also force a HeelFaceTurn in her adoptive father, Noah "HRG" Bennet.
* In ''Series/{{Rome}}'' Lucius Vorenus... just about all the time.
* Malcolm Tucker in ''Series/TheThickOfIt'': "Have I got my Bollocking Face on? No no, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89ojjeWBQ-0 this]]'' is my Bollocking Face".
* ''GossipGirl'': Chuck Bass has a knack for it.
* An exaggerated example in the ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' episode "Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap", the audience is treated to Lily's "you're dead to me" look. The camera zooms in on her face, she starts breathing heavily, her hair starts swirling around her, and [[GlowingEyesOfDoom her eyes get a fiery glow to them.]] Of course, [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer this should come as no surprise.]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The Tenth Doctor gave MANY of these. Perhaps the most frightening of them are in "Human Nature"/"Family of Blood" and "Waters of Mars". He also glared a fair bit when he went into TranquilFury mode.
** John Simm's evil Master squint is ''legendary''.
** The Ninth Doctor was fond of doing this to badly misbehaving Companions. (Adam in "The Long Game", Rose in "Father's Day", and Jack in "The Doctor Dances") He also managed to stare down some villains this way, at least temporarily. Usually it was just a bluff, though, done when he really had no weapons or way out.
** And now [[Creator/MattSmith Eleven]] seems to be carrying on the tradition: he's normally a happy-go-lucky guy who likes his fez and Jammy Dodgers, but if you cross him - well, you'll be wishing a time crack would eat ''you''.
** Back in the old series, the Fourth Doctor would occasionally break out the Death Glare if circumstances warranted. In "Genesis of the Daleks", the look he gives the Time Lord who stole his [=TARDIS=] and dropped him on Skaro should have made the guy regenerate on the spot.
* Michael from ''TheOffice'' busts out the glare from time to time, for example when Dwight went to Jan saying that he should be Regional Manager and then lied, saying he was at the dentist. Michael is usually a complete buffoon, but when he does that glare...he is pretty creepy looking.
* Charlie Harper from ''TwoAndAHalfMen'' is really good at giving these to his brother Alan.
* Reba Hart from ''{{Reba}}'' is also good at this.
* With a healthy dose of PapaWolf, Ed Lane of ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' gave one to a cop who was trying to stop him from reaching Parker and subsequently warn him about the investigator [[spoiler: who appeared to targeting Parker with her questions and trying to pin the blame of the mission on him.]]
* This exchange from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
-->'''Willow:''' It's horrible! That's me as a vampire? I'm so evil and... and skanky. And I think I'm kinda gay.\\
'''Buffy:''' Willow, just remember, a vampire's personality has nothing to do with the person it was.\\
'''Angel:''' Well, actually--\\
'''Buffy:''' ''(death glare)''\\
'''Angel:''' --that's a good point.
* A particularly powerful, non-comedic, [[TrueArtIsAngsty angst-filled]] one in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' when Dean comes to realize that [[spoiler: Castiel was working with Crowley]]. Let's just say that he takes it [[EtTuBrute quite personally]]: after a quick HeroicBSOD he pulls one of these at Castiel. Made even worse by the fact that Castiel does not notice it and that it was induced, more than by simple, generic anger, by desperation over Castiel's betrayal, which means you basically have to stare at a seemingly angry Dean knowing he's actually [[NotSoStoic broken-hearted]].
** The Horseman Death himself has a pretty good glare. Although, it's more icy and filled to the brim with the knowledge that he is better than you than it is angry.
* ''{{Series/Deadwood}}'': TimothyOlyphant is a ''master'' of these. One of his stares can leave a smoking hole in you.
* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'': The Death Glare is John Casey's default face, even when he's happy. Assuming he ever is, it's kinda hard to tell. Basically as long he's not growling he probably won't kill you within the next five seconds.
** The Greta agent in "Chuck Versus the Fear of Death" has a few of these, accompanied by her waving around a [[KnifeNut wickedly sharp knife.]] She and Casey even trade glares in a face-off at the end of the episode.
* Beckett has one of these on permanent standby for whenever Series/{{Castle}} gets snarky about their relationship... or when his theories go too far off the wall.... or when he tries her patience.... or pretty much whenever he's talking.
** Lampshaded in "Demons" when ''Ryan'' gets one from Beckett after offering to help Castle investigate the so-called "haunted house":
--->'''Castle:''' Ooh, that's a look.
--->'''Ryan:''' Yeah.
--->'''Castle:''' I get these a lot. Just start walking. Faster. ''[They scurry off]''
* ''SonsOfAnarchy'' enforcer Happy sends a bone chilling glare to Ethan Zobelle and A.J. Weston in the first episode of season 2. The fact that the actor who plays him, David [=LaBrava=], is a real Hells Angel only makes it more terrifying.
* ''{{Glee}}'': Kurt Hummel has a pretty impressive one of these at the best of times. It's been called the "Kurt Hummel Bitchface" on more than one occasion. Combine it with a barely-arched eyebrow and a serial-killer head tilt and even [[AlphaBitch Rachel Berry]] will get the message and back off, eventually. In a rather chilling example: When Kurt and Blaine dance at the end of "Prom Queen," it's a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming -- except for the part where everyone who isn't [[TrueCompanions the New Directions]] is dead silent and stone-faced.
* ''PressGang'''s Lynda Day has a Death Glare as her ''default expression''.
* Both the male leads in ''ChinesePaladin 3'' break out the glare when they're ''seriously'' pissed off. It's not actually easy to get them them, considering that one of them is a GuileHero and the other is TheStoic...but sometimes people do. Common reasons include [[KnightTemplarBigBrother harming Jing Tian's nakama]], trying to make Changqing break his HeroicVow, or bringing about the end of the world.
* ''Series/BreakingBad'''s Walter White turns out to be a master of this. At least once a season he breaks out a mean one. It turns almost to horror when coupled with Bryan Cranston's deep, growling voice.
** [[spoiler:Near the end of Season 4, Hector "Tio" Salamanca gives one hell of a death glare to Gustavo Fring before he sets off a pipe bomb tied to his wheelchair, killing himself and taking Gus with him.]]
* Eliot Spencer from ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' has this down to an art form. One character describes it as "[[BuffySpeak that thing with [his] eyes that scares people.]]"
* Katsumi Daidou does this in the prequel movie ''Series/KamenRiderDouble Returns: Kamen Rider Eternal''. The villain of the movie tries to mentally break Katsumi by killing someone whom he cared about. After the kill, Katsumi delivers one hell of a death glare, signifying the audience its ass-kicking time.
* Abed pulls off a particularly awesome one in the ''Series/{{Community}}'' episode ''A Fistful of Paintballs''. In fact, it's so awesome it's accompanied by an eagle's scream and hellfire vfx. The recipient drops his gun and runs in terror.
* Leo on ''TheWestWing'' is very capable of these. In the episode "The Lame-Duck Congress", there's a running gag about Donna trying to get first Josh and then Leo to pay more attention to OSHA safety standards in the White House, and Leo's response to her is it costs too much, and she should just "type slower." Later, Margaret, Leo's assistant, is typing a report for him at a snail's pace, and when Leo calls her on it, Margaret reminds him of what he told Donna, and tells him she and the rest of the secretaries are taking that advice to heart:
-->'''Leo:''' Margaret.
-->'''Margaret:''' Yeah.
-->'''Leo:''' Look at my face right now.
-->(''Margaret looks, sees Leo's death glare, goes back to typing normally'')
** President Bartlet was also capable of these, as shown in the episode "Guns Not Butter":
-->'''Bartlet:''' Hey, Zoey's growing up very nicely, isn't she?
-->'''Josh:''' Man, I'll say. (''off Bartlet's death glare'') You know, I go for kiss-ass today and the ball goes in the gutter.
* The Series/ImpracticalJokers presents [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDCCAflsVi8 Klepto Buffet]]. People take food being stolen off their plate ''very seriously''.
* Rear Admiral A.J. Chegwidden from ''Series/{{JAG}}'' is a master of this trope. The fact that he is a [[CoolOldGuy former Navy SEAL]] reinforces the validity of this beyond any formal authority.
* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'':
** Horatio Hornblower's eyes are quite expressive when he's seething, and it's very lucky for some sailors, including his superiors, that his look cannot kill. For example, he did not take lightly when Captain Sawyer indirectly caused a lethal accident of one seaman from Horatio's division, and then forced his crew to throw him overboard without a proper funeral.
** Archie Kennedy pulls off a convincing Death Glare when his Berserk Button is pressed. He really doesn't like seeing Midshipman Wellard disrespected or treated badly. When common sailors are at fault, he berates them properly, but he cannot do much but stare deadly when the Captain starts showing his insanity or when Mr Bush is reluctant to speak up for Mr Wellard.
* Ruby in ''Series/OnceUponATime'' hands one out whenever her being a werewolf is brought up. Whether it's Charming making a off color comment, Leeroy scared of outsiders finding out about her or Regina insulting her, Ruby reacts all "oh bring ''that'' up" and gets...[[JustForPun sorry,]] huffy.
** Regina is the master of these.
* Edward James Olmos in general is excellent at this. Having had plenty of practice employing the Death Glare during his time as Lt. Castillo on ''Series/MiamiVice'' (and during a guest starring appearance on ''TheWestWing''). Fans of ''Miami Vice'' have [[FanNickname nicknamed]] this the [[http://miamivice.wikia.com/wiki/Castillo_Staredown "Castillo staredown"]]. A fanfic once described this actor as having a stare capable of melting solid neutronium at fifty paces -- and causing small bushes to burst into flame.
* ''Series/{{Monk}}'':
** In "Mr. Monk Is Someone Else," there is the scene where Monk has a staredown with a refrigerator delivery man....twice. The first time, when it comes to wheeling in a new refrigerator and having an argument over a lip in the floor, Monk loses. But in the end, after the case is solved, Monk wins a staredown over a broken part (albeit some help from Natalie).
** In "Mr. Monk Is on the Air," when Monk's BerserkButton (Trudy) is pressed by Max Hudson (who makes tasteless jokes about Trudy's death on the air), Monk starts with a DeathGlare and then proceeds to physically attacking him.
** In "Mr. Monk Goes to a Rock Concert," Monk informs Trafalgar roadie Kendra Frank that her deceased boyfriend, a rehabbed addict afraid of needles, saw an acupuncturist that morning. He hands her a map of the concert grounds that shows the acupuncture tent circled with a time written on it. After a moment, she looks up and glares at him, visibly pissed.
* ''That's Just Me'': Monica does this after being informed by Tsering the current Biology Honors students don't have to do a super hard project her class did last year. She even grabs a butcher knife and points it at her.
** Elizabeth has these whenever her 'demon self' comes out, which is ironic because normally she can't do them.
** Monica usually has this as her default face, usually when Elizabeth's bugging her. One example was when Elizabeth hid Monica's trumpet and didn't tell her where it was. Monica glares and says: "If you don't find it I'll use your dead body as a baseball bat."
** "That poster is going to be there, haunting you guys." *GLARE* "You know, I've never killed someone by ripping out all of their hair and forcing them to swallow it, but first time for everything!"

* In the first ''Series/BlueCollarComedy Tour'' film, Creator/BillEngvall recalls how he met Lucy, a goth friend of his daughter. He accidentally calls her "Lucy...fer", and was promptly given one of these.
--->'''Engvall:''' She looked at me like, "I will set you ablaze right now."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The game ''Adventure!'' has this as a Heroic Knack, Steely Gaze, which allows you to win all staredowns against non-Inspired characters and offers a bonus against Inspired characters, though the second-level Psychic knack, Cloak of Dread, might be a combo of this and a general aura of terror.
* Similarly, ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'' has an edge called The Stare that gives a bonus to intimidation rolls.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''
** The Chief Librarian of the Blood Angels, Mephiston, has one of these. He's known as the Lord of Death. Bad enough, but when you consider just how much death is involved in 40K...
** Also the Nightbringer, whose glare can also function as an attack.
** Also for the imperium Commissar Yarrick, same deal. Currently it is an EyeBeam attack but he used to just be rumored to kill orks at a glance. That's the point: when he heard the rumor, he ''[[EyeScream instantly plucked out his eyeball]] [[CrazyAwesome and replaced it with a laser]]'' to live up to his reputation.
** Also, in older pieces of fluff, Guardsman Pius, whom Horus killed with a mere glance for attempting to stand between him and the Emperor.
* ''{{GURPS}}'' has the Fearsome Stare perk that lets you make Intimidation checks without saying a word.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* As the title character in ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', Creator/DavidTennant delivers the Death Glare to Claudius several times, and at least once to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
** Subverted in ''Theater/AsYouLikeIt'', where Phebe protests against Silvius slandering her eyes thus.
--> ...but now mine eyes,
--> Which I have darted at thee, hurt thee not,
--> Nor, I am sure, there is no force in eyes
--> That can do hurt.
* In the filmed version of ''IntoTheWoods'', the Witch delivers a quite hilarious and ''frightening'' one to the Baker.
* A particularly terrifying one in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqG7iDCxgqc this version of]] TheMikado, especially since it appears to be [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou directed at the audience.]]
* In the 2012 arena tour version of ''JesusChristSuperstar'', Annas shoots a truly murderous one at Judas after he strikes Caiaphas and makes him bleed.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The Boss of ''MetalGearSolid3'' throws a few of these at her former apprentice, most notably during their second encounter when [[WhatAnIdiot she manages to lull him into dropping his guard, despite the fact that she broke a couple of his bones and threw him off a bridge just a week or two before]].
* ''CityOfHeroes'' has this as a superpower called "Fearsome Stare", which strikes paralyzing terror into the foes before you.
* Lampshaded in the [=PS2=] ''[[VideoGame/ThePunisher Punisher]]'' video game.
-->'''Frank:''' Out of the way, Bullseye.\\
'''Bullseye:''' Or what? You'll ''scowl'' me to death?
* Charlotte Aulin from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'' lets out a comical Death Glare everytime that someone presses her BerserkButton by calling her a [[JustAKid kid]].
* Several Franchise/{{Pokemon}} have the "Glare" move, which paralyzes the target.
** There's also "Mean Look", which prevents your opponent from escaping, "Leer", which lowers Defense, and "Scary Face", which sharply lowers Speed.
** The ability "Intimidate" could also be an allusion to this trope, seeing as it takes effect (lowers the opponent's Attack) when all the battling Pokémon have done is merely ''look'' at each other, occurring before a single command is even given. Gets a bit weird though when the OlympusMons are also intimidated. You could almost make a case for something like Jirachi being scared of Gyarados, but then how do Arceus and Palkia get scared? For that matter, how is Hitmontop even close to intimidating?
** Uxie likely has one of these, as its eyes always remain mysteriously closed. The reason for this is because if the eyes ''do'' open, the target's memory will become wiped out.
** Cyrus gives you, the player, a death glare during the opening credits of ''Platinum Version''.
** Cobalion, a [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Generation V]] [[OlympusMons Legendary Pokémon]], can command other Pokémon to do its will simply by glaring at them.
** Many mascot Pokémon from Generation 2 and beyond could be said to be exhibiting this trope based on their artwork.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon X and Y}}'', a lot of Pokemon will give you one of these in Pokemon Amie if you start petting them on a spot they're not fond of.
* Shinja from ''VideoGame/BattleRealms'', whose death glare is an activated ability that intimidates all nearby enemies into dealing less damage. A popular folk tale claims that his glare can even block oncoming magic (in-game, Shinja is near-immune to magic attacks).
* Niko Bellic in VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV pulls of a terrifying one late game when Jimmy Pegorino threatens him.
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'': During her MamaBear moment, Amy gives Silver a look that essentially says "take one step forward and I'll kill you right here and now." This becomes a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when you realize that she (a mere BadassNormal) made a powerful psychopath back off with that look.
* The floating eye enemies named Mogalls in ''[[FireEmblem Sacred Stones]]'' try to kill your units by looking at them, but they often miss.
* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Tali'Zorah is a Quarian, whose race was almost annihilated when they accidentially created a race of sentient robots, with the few survivors having been forced to live in space on ancient dreadnoughts for several hundred years. When she is recruited to the Normandy [=SR2=], she makes it very clear that she think it's a crazy idea to work with the human-supremacist group Cerberus and they can't be trusted a single bit, despite Jacob's best attempts to assure her that this group didn't have anything to do with the crimes and devastating experiments other chapters have commited. When she is about to leave the room, Jacob tells her to introduce herself to the ship's sentient AI, causing her to freeze in her tracks. She doesn't say anything and just stares back over her shoulder for a few very long seconds.
** It must be noted that this death stare is done through a near completely opaque/reflective helmet, making it all that much more frightening.
*** [[{{Narm}} Well...]]
** Shepard's no slouch at delivering such glares him/herself, and at one point is even able to outstare a freaking Krogan in Afterlife, leading to one of the funniest scenes of the game.
--->'''Krogan:''' I was just trying to have a drink here! No need to get all excited!
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Wrex delivers one of these to the Salarian Dalatrass after she insults the Krogan one too many times.
*** [[spoiler:Protheans]] are also capable of giving one hell of a KubrickStare with their four eyes and MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily.
* ''VideoGame/MarioIsMissing'': After the internet got to him, Weegee began to do this frequently.
* ''KingdomHearts'' example: Most of Organization XIII practices this frequently. A few (most notably Xemnas, Zexion and Saďx) have this as their default expression.
* The portrait for Jaheira from ''BaldursGate'' could be interpreted as giving a Death Glare; at any rate, knowing her character, it's easy to imagine her dealing them out to everyone. ([[http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Jaheira The second portrait on this page, if you're wondering.]])
* This is Bass' default look towards us in ''[[MegaManBattleNetwork Rockman.EXE 4.5]]'' (and the series in general, actually). [[RedEyesTakeWarning Glowing Red]] [[GlowingEyesOfDoom Eyes of Doom]] included!
* After beating the final boss in ''MegamanStarForce 3'', it gets up for more. After a short cutscene, the hero goes OneWingedAngel... stands there for a few seconds... and then glances over his shoulder at the boss. Cue unloseable boss fight.
* In ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon FEAR 3]]'', the Point Man delivers a truly [[http://guides.gamepressure.com/fear3/gfx/word/685223250.jpg terrifying example]] of this in the intro when he realizes one of the Armacham soldiers is possessed by Paxton Fettel, and expresses his feelings toward him by slicing his throat.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'':
*** Link pulls off an epic one pretty much whenever [[spoiler:Demise]] is on-screen. [[spoiler:Demise is actually intrigued by this: Link is the first human he's ever seen who looks at him with anger and hatred, rather than fear and terror.]]
*** [[GoodIsNotNice Impa]] shoots one to Link before giving him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech for not showing up to save Zelda fast enough. With her [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], her death glare manages to be pretty effective.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'', [[spoiler:Hilda]] flashes this at Link [[spoiler:when she reveals she plans to steal Link's Triforce of Courage to save her kingdom. A severe OutOfCharacterMoment for an AntiVillain.]]
* This and HulkSpeak make up the entirety of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Kimahri Ronso's]] interpersonal skills. (Although he's actually quite the GentleGiant when he warms up to you.)
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' - At the end of Act II, Meredith throws one at Hawke when she realizes Hawke has just saved every noble in the city and she now has no choice but to name them Champion. It says a lot about [[ControlFreak how willingly she shares power]], especially if Hawke is a mage.
** At the end of Act III, should Hawke have sided with the mages, s/he gives the Templars surrounding them a withering Death Glare, causing them to ''immediately'' back off and let Hawke and their companions go free. Again, if you're playing as a Mage this carries an additional subtext. After mopping the floor with [[spoiler: Knight-Commander Meredith]], the Templars clearly know better than to test Hawke's ''[[DoNotTauntCthulhu patience]]''.
* In the [[{{VideoGame/Persona3}} newer]] [[{{VideoGame/Persona4}} Persona]] [[{{VideoGame/Persona4Arena}} games]], there's an instance where the Persona-users hits critical hit or elemental weakness of their enemies. SuperMovePortraitAttack where the Persona-users' eyes zooms in comes out as a visual cue and it's always to this effect.
** Additionally, In ''Persona2InnocentSin'', one of Tatsuya's negotiation options is actually called "Death Stare".
* Katherine of ''VideoGame/{{Catherine}}'' is ''nerve-wrackingly'' good at this.
-->Katherine: "[[YourCheatingHeart If you're going to make excuses]], [[SchmuckBait you could at least look me in the eye]]."
-->''*ScareChord*''
* In a moment of OOCIsSeriousBusiness, {{Kirby}} gives [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe Queen Sectonia]] one after inhaling her WaveMotionGun, right before he shoots said Wave Motion Gun right back at her.]] This is the only time Kirby looked actually ''[[TranquilFury angry]]'' at the villain, rather than determined. [[spoiler:[[YouHaveFailedMe Given]] [[BadBoss what]] [[VainSorceress kind]] [[ColdBloodedTorture of person]] Queen Sectonia is,]] this seems rather fitting.
* In ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'', ''Luigi'' of all characters has this whenever he passes another racer.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Tohsaka Rin of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Do NOT, just do NOT get her angry. Be prepared to be killed, er, I mean, amazed.
* ''{{Tsukihime}}'': Tohno Shiki is usually quite gentle, doesn't particularly enjoy fighting and absolutely despises killing. However, if something truly angers him, TheGlassesComeOff, and his glare has more often than not completely terrified his foes. Of course, his {{Magical Eye}}s help. In the ''Melty Blood'' manga, the majority of his expressions can be summed up into three categories: Exasperation, shock and [[http://www.onemanga.com/Melty_Blood/12/23/ tranquil]] [[http://www.onemanga.com/Melty_Blood/11/21/ fury]]. It should be noted that he hasn't gone Nanaya at all since the first game, so his terrifying glare is limited mostly to his [[BewareTheNiceOnes normal persona]].
* Damon Gant's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzTgOhzVddw Epic Stare of Death]] from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' is the embodiment of this trope.
** There was a flash parody which took Gant's sprite from the game, and used the audio from the above-mentioned Death Glare scene from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}.''
** Miles Edgeworth from the same games is legendary for this.
** Morgan Fey throws off some particularly vicious glares when provoked, as does Dahlia Hawthorne. [[spoiler:Like mother, like daughter.]]
** In ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', when [[spoiler: Kristoph Gavin]] is upset, he gains ScaryShinyGlasses. When you perceive him in the fourth case, you get to see through them. What you see is incredibly unnerving...
** In ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'', [[{{Badass}} Tyrell Badd]] gives one that makes ''[[WhipItGood Franziska]]'' back off. 'Nuff said.

* In ''Codename:Hunter'', never, EVER try to imply that either Hunter or Gyspy (especially due to hers parents' past) are slaves just 'cause they use bands, or Hunter will [[http://www.codenamehunter.com/archive/comic/2011/10/17 shut you up with a look.]]
* In ''AnimeNewsNina'', "The Guru" of action anime, also known as Bill, [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anime-news-nina/2008-10-08 can do this with only one eye!]] He can also make watermelons and presumably heads explode by punching them, too.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Haley giving Sabine in disguise a [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0378.html "petrifying gaze attack"]] is what clue Nale that Haley might have feelings for his brother Elan.
* Art from ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'', while usually a rather genial guy, gives quite a good [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=693 one]].
* The normally mild-mannered and take-it-as-it-comes hero of ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' gives one [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20110611.html here]] -- literally.
* [[HeroicSelfDeprecation Piro]] from Webcomic/MegaTokyo has a [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/867 surprisingly]] [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/706 good]] [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1085 one]].
* [=PeeJee=] from ''SomethingPositive'' can do [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp02262004.shtml this]]. Added note, her boyfriend should not [[SnarkBait diss her game]], [[TooDumbToLive especially when she is the GM]].

* In ''Webcomic/MenInHats'', Aram [[http://www.meninhats.com/d/20030827.html demonstrates the nasty glare]] he intends to use on people who look at each other and laugh together about something.
* Bun-bun from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' is a simply drawn rabbit, which means that most of the time he only wears one of three expressions: round eyes, bored eyes or angry eyes. When the last appears (which is not seldom), you should be very afraid. Many creatures multiple times his size are.
* TheCaptain in ''Webcomic/RomanticallyApocalyptic'' gives an impressive (although unseen by the readers) Death Glare to [[spoiler:an alien - a literal one, as it causes the [[YourHeadAsplode alien's head to]] '''''[[YourHeadAsplode explode]]''''']].
* Multiple characters in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' can do this. [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2004-11-22 Kevyn]] is apparently quite good with them off-screen, but the grand prize has to go to [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2008-09-27 Massey Reynstein]] after a long, busy night of mayhem.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}'', [[MakingASplash Larima]] gives a ''really'' [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/MangaPacificators/MangaPacisV03CH01n202.html scary one]] to [[PsychoElectro Rendo]], but [[GravityMaster Muneca]] [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/MangaPacificators/MangaPacisV03CH01n075.html takes home]] [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/MangaPacificators2/MangaPacisV04n125.html the trophy]].
** Forget Larima and Muneca. [[BlowYouAway Enlil]] [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/MangaPacificators2/MangaPacisV05n266.html blows them out]] [[IncrediblyLamePun of the water]].
* Lady Trylia of ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'' has an expression when she doesn't get what she wants that causes withdrawn Kanryl to speak, since her glare was frightening his animals.
* In ''FriendshipIsDragons'', a CampaignComic based off of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Fluttershy's stare (see below) is not just an ability of the character, but of her '''player''', and frightened the DM into submission when a dragon was menacing her party. When it was mentioned that she just thought about what her mother would do, The DM speculates that the ability is probably genetic.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'' Cassie receives a positively ''feral'' one from a drunk Ally when she walks in on her and Lisa initiating something in the toilets of a club.
* In ''Webcomic/MenageA3'':
** Gary manages to provoke simultaneous comedy death glares from two women [[http://www.ma3comic.com/d/20110421.html here.]] Which is kind of a sad waste, given that one slightly harsh word is usually enough to make Gary crawl away weeping.
** One is also inflicted by Sonya on new character Peggy [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/here_to_do_a_good_deed here,]] despite the fact that Sonya was proudly doing Peggy a favour at the time. Sonya's not too bright, but she's passionate, and good at showing how she feels about things.
* Amical from ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]'' is a kind and sweet host who talks sugary sweet even when threatening peoples lives.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Lily, the [[FantasticRacism human-hating]] fairy of ''{{Felarya}}'' has a [[http://karbo.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3gz9ik truly frightening stare]] (mildly NSFW) with a generous helping of AxCrazy.
* ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries'':
** Lydia looks at Lizzie this way when she learns that she did not invite her to accompany her outside and that she -- Lydia -- is not going to have dinner at Netherfield house.
** William Darcy death-glares at Lizzie [[spoiler:at the end when they got together]] when she keeps taking photographs of him at dinner with Lydia, Charlotte and Ricky Collins. It appeared on twitter accompanying the web series.
* ''NocteYin'' has a ''literal'' Death Glare, though she mostly just uses it to knock people unconscious.
* Laina622 does this in her stalking song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yh0AhrY9GjA&feature=channel&list=UL videos]]. Talk about Yandere.
* Mithiriel from ''ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum'' takes the Death Glare to Fluttershy levels. And she's more assertive in general, so Ithalond is something of a HenpeckedHusband.
** In the Official Fanfiction University of [[{{Myst}} MREDURE]], Marrim gives a student a Death Glare when said student starts professing her love for Eedrah--Marrim's husband in canon.
* The YoutubePoop series Allison Won Derland made by [[YouTube YouTube]] user Geibuchan uses this trope thousands of times. Whenever Alice becomes angry at someone, she will do this. It is basically a red-tinted, zoomed in scene from the original movie that shows her angrily glaring at something.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyi-VfxmecU This is the fourth video of the series, which introduced the red-tint Death Glare.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology]]
* The Cockatrice and Basilisk are both good examples of creatures in mythology with literal death glares. Legends say a single glance from either creature can kill (or [[TakenForGranite petrify]]) a man.
* Evil eye beads, found throughout Greece, Turkey, Armenia and parts of the Middle East, stem from ancient beliefs that they can protect the wearer from any ill karmic effects given by a death glare.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* A case of a near-''literal'' Death Glare in ''CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'', during a trip back to World War II, a [[AnimationAgeGhetto very badly rendered]] Hitler -- sporting a bowl cut and handlebar mustache -- once nearly took the titular superhero down with a cold, dispassionate stare fueled by the "pollution" of hate and bigotry in his heart. By contrast, remember that {{Superman}} looked Hitler in the eye and kicked his ass ''at least'' a dozen separate times in [=WWII=]-era comics. Hatred is considered Heart-flavored pollution, so Hitler is basically a walking block of kryptonite to Captain Planet.
* ''TheSpectacularSpiderMan'': Gwen Stacy doesn't quite have one of these, but she does have "the look" which has roughly the same effect on her (male) friends Peter and Harry. It also apparently works on her dad (though he may have been joking), which is pretty impressive considering he's voiced by ''Creator/ClancyBrown''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Raven has a Death Glare that will make you [[BowelBreakingBricks shit bricks]]. Ask Doctor Light. Beast Boy is apparently immune to it (probably through repeated exposure), as when she gave him one in the episode "Fear Itself", he was unfazed. Occasionally he does back off, it's just that it's not a death glare to him.
** The episode "[[Recap/TeenTitansS2E10Betrayal Betrayal]]" contains a PlayedForDrama example - just after getting a HeelFaceDoorSlam from Beast Boy, the last expression seen on Terra's face as she and Slade slip into the shadows together is an absolutely chilling glare in BB's direction.
* ''SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo'': You do '''''NOT''''' want Nova glaring at you. EVER. Likewise, while this occurs less often, Antauri has quite the death glare when it chooses to come out.
* This was essentially [[EnfantTerrible Stewie's]] default facial expression in earlier seasons of ''{{Family Guy}}''.
* Franchise/{{Batman}}
** He shows everyone in the JusticeLeague why you listen to his orders and keep your mouth shut about it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EENaoUiLfV0 here.]]
** If Superman [[BewareTheNiceOnes does this]]... let's just say [[EyeBeams his look could kill]]. [[spoiler:As LexLuthor learned]].
* Many years later, Bruce Wayne still has it in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''.
** Talia al Ghul gives one to Terry for misspelling Ra's al Ghul's name yet strangely does not give one for him calling Ra's al Ghul a psychopath instead settling for [[StunnedSilence a horrified look of shock]]. That's because [[spoiler:it's Ra's al Ghul in Talia's body and would have every reason to be horrified by the notion of him being a psychopath as well as every reason to be annoyed at having his name misspronounced.]]
* Batman gives the two bank robbers an epic one in the opening titles of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', everyone has had one of these at one point or another. Surprisingly, [[ManChild Soos]], [[BadassAdorable Mabel]], and [[ItMakesSenseInContext Wax Sherlock Holmes]] were among the first to do so.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'':
** Courtney has a fearsome death glare which she regularly gives to both her enemies and her beloved bad boy boyfriend, Duncan.
** Owen earns two of these from Noah in "I See London", the first is even accompanied with a ScareChord.
** [[PerkyGoth Gwen]] had many of these over the course of the series.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''
** Out of all the characters, ''[[CowardlyLion Fluttershy]]'' has displayed this ability [[BewareTheNiceOnes when sufficiently provoked]], as seen in "Dragonshy" and "The Stare Master". It is notable that this is only used silently on mundane animals (or as mundane as animals get in Equestria), and when used on fantastic creatures is delivered in concert with [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath the sort of dressing down a mother would give her misbehaving young child]].
** It's actually a plot element in "Stare Master". Fluttershy is somewhat renowned for this ability of hers, but she cannot control it. It may sound funny, but the Stare seems to possess nigh-hypnotic properties, able to break the will of any creature meeting it. This ranges from [[MundaneUtility rounding up some disobedient chickens]] to [[spoiler: staring down a cockatrice, [[TakenForGranite a creature with the power of turning living beings to stone with a glare]], until it folds and gives life back to its victims. That's right, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Fluttershy's Death Glare reduced into submission a monster with an actual]] Evil Eye.]]
** In "Party of One", Pinkie Pie also displays some scary glares during her episode-long SanitySlippage.
** "Green Isn't Your Colour" has Rarity saying she wants to be left alone, and [[StalkerWithACrush Spike]] repeating this to Pinkie and Twilight, [[HypocriticalHumor only to try to sneak off to be alone with Rarity when it seemed like Pinkie and Twilight were gone]]. Twilight then bites down on Spike's tail and drags him out of the room, at which point she and Pinkie give Spike a more intense Death Glare than was ever given to any of the villains.
** Twilight uses one to convince Applejack to help out in "Luna Eclipsed".
** ''Then'' there's the look Princess Celestia gives [[spoiler: [[BigBad Chrysalis]], [[VileVillainSaccharineShow the]] [[EmotionEater Changeling]] [[{{Shapeshifter}} Queen]]]] in "A Canterlot Wedding" shortly before [[spoiler: trying to ''fry her'' with [[FrickinLaserBeams a magical beam]].]] (Celestia is [[MamaBear like a mother]] to all her subjects.)
** In "Swarm Of The Century" when the ponies have conveniently dealt with the problem at hand a solid [[SpoiledByTheFormat ten minutes earlier than usual]], only to learn [[FriendToAllLivingThings Fluttershy]] couldn't help but keep one of the ''rapidly multiplying Parasprites'' for herself. Cue epic death glares from Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, and Rarity.
* On ''MissionHill'', death glares are often accompanied by daggers coming out of the person's eyes.
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' has one [[BreakingTheFourthWall that breaks the fourth wall]] while Dot and Enzo are in a FPS based on the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' film series.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons:''
** In episode "Lady Bouvier's Lover" (#1F21), Abe Simpson had his dance-party date (Marge's mom) usurped by a rival. Abe angrily declared "I'm gonna give him the frowning of a lifetime!" and proceeded to do so. Unfortunately, the rival was the pathologically ego-centric Mr. Burns, so Abe's efforts were completely ignored.
** [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Mr. Burns]] is no slouch in the Glaring department either.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'': Ruel's grandmother will give you a Death Glare if you ever say the word "borrow". Or "discount". Or "refund". Or... well, any suggestion you could pay less than her tariff. Even... ''especially'' to her grandson -- he should know better.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers Galaxy Rangers]]'': Piss off Captain Foxx and you'll get one of these. Even [[SuperSoldier Gooseman]] backs off when the stare comes out. You will not get a second warning before the ArmCannon warms up.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''. Despite [[TheBlank not having a face]], Soundwave manages to pull this off. [[spoiler: Right before giving Airachnid an epic beatdown.]]
** Back in [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers Generation 1]], the Decepticons successfully framed the Autobots and made themselves look like the good guys. While Soundwave and his cassettes attended a teen dance, some guy asked "Laserbeak wanna cracker?" No. Laserbeak did ''not'' want a cracker.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresFromTheBookOfVirtues'' episode "Honesty", Plato does one to Socrates [[LamePunReaction in response to a bad pun]].
* Max and P.J. each give a ''nasty'' one in the ''{{WesternAnimation/Goof Troop}}'' episode "Waste Makes Haste", when Pete reveals his ''real'' objective during their recycling gig with Goofy: [[spoiler: To scavenge for a pair of missing golden baby shoes that Pete intended to return to the owner... in exchange for a hefty reward he would keep for himself.]] (P.J.'s stare actually borders on something downright [[KubrickStare Kubrickian]].) Goofy, however, appears totally unfazed by this revelation.
* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}} [=ThunderCats (2011)=]]]'' episode "Berbils" gruff OldSoldier Panthro delivers one when he's caught openly hugging his new friend Ro-Bear Bill:
--> '''Wilykat:''' Busted!
--> '''Wilykit:''' Panthro's a big ol' [[BruiserWithASoftCenter softy]]!
--> '''Panthro:''' Is that a ''problem?''
--> '''Wilykit:''' ''(stiffens nervously)'' Nope.
--> '''Wilykat:''' It's cool.
* In an episode of the 2012 [[WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012}} [=Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012)=]]]'' Leo, Donnie, and Raph do this to Mikey on several occasions.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Pema gives Tenzin one for reluctantly allowing Tarrlok to join them for dinner, especially after Tarrlok says that [[SacredHospitality Air Nomads never turned away a hungry guest]]. Moments later, Ikki trumps her mother by giving Tarrlok a longer one, which isn't noticed by those at the table but [[FunnyBackgroundEvent noticed by the audience]]. Bonus points added for Ikki's glare looking like Pema's glare.
** Bolin gets one from almost everyone for being InnocentlyInsensitive about Korra losing her bending.
** P'Li gives a rather [[NightmareFuel scary]] one right at the start of "In Harm's Way".

[[folder:Real Life]]
* BarackObama has become famous with White House reporters for his Death Glare, often after receiving a question he finds obvious and/or stupid (or, if you have a less positive view of the man, one he can't talk his way out of). Though that may be more along the lines of "Implied {{Facepalm}}".
* Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi gave one to Representative Joe Wilson when he interrupted Obama's healthcare speech by shouting "[[ThatLiarLies YOU LIE!]]" Hilariously pointed out by ''Series/TheDailyShow'' [[http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/mon-september-14-2009/apothecary-now of course.]]
-->'''Jon Stewart:''' Surprisingly, Joe Wilson survived that stare. Surprised everyone including myself, author of ''Nancy Pelosi: The Power of Her Peepers''.
* NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, a.k.a. The Black Mamba, has a downright '''menacing''' one that you can usually catch once a game, especially in photos online (and abused hilariously in basketball memes).
** One of the most famous instances was during the 2012-2013 season when he gave one to then-coach Mike Brown while they were losing. Even though it was early in the season, the normally champion-level LA Lakers were on a losing streak,and that game was one another tally to the count...one week after the death glare was given, Mike Brown was fired.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwFM15L4mQI But seriously...does this look like the face of mercy to you?]]
* Even animals can give the Death Glare, as indicated by this famous quote by Robert Ruark on the Cape Buffalo:
-->"I lurched up and looked at Mbogo, and Mbogo looked at me. He was 50 to 60 yards off, his head low, his eyes staring right down my soul. He looked at me as if he hated my guts. He looked as if I had despoiled his fiancé, murdered his mother and burned down his house. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking He looked at me as if I owed him money]]. I never saw such malevolence in the eyes of any animal or human being before or since. [[CombatPragmatist So I shot him]]."
** [[LightningBruiser The Cape Buffalo is perhaps the deadliest animal in Africa.]] Just do '''not''' mess with it.
* In the animal world, over-exerting oneself often means death. As such, the death glare has become a prominent form of saying "you've overstepped your boundaries" or "back off or die" without the user having to expend the energy to bluff, charge, fight, and/or kill the offender.
* As any child or husband knows quite well, having their mother or wife give them "The Look" is never good.
** Sisters too, especially if they're older.
** There are some kids that are born naturals of this, and if there is animosity between them, [[CallingTheOldManOut a son may give a really nasty one when he feels his parents are pushing it]].
* There are a lot of different names for this look. "Death Glare" is just one of the more well-known. Other terms for it include the Evil Eye and "[[{{Narm}} the hairy eyeball]]".
* This is, of course, the first thing they teach you at Teacher Training Camp. Or at least, you'd think so.
** As a former teacher, I can tell you there's no training necessary. It's a natural development.
* Australian Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop's stare has reached meme status.
* Steve Jobs had a death glare that is infamous among Apple fans.
* Jazz clarinetist Benny Goodman would often glare at other band-members while playing a song, and would continue staring for minutes on end while they played the rest of the tune. It was infamously known as "The Ray".
* Australian opposition leader Tony Abbott recently spent a good minute of a one-on-one interview silently death staring the reporter after being asked a question. Most awkward thing ever.
* Music/HenryRollins -- His page image is more or less his default expression.
* Any fighting event with a [[http://www.mmafighting.com/photos/ufc-130-weigh-in-photos/#photo-1 weigh-in]], for example MixedMartialArts.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsAbeYpK-6w Here's]] possibly the greatest staredown of all time.
* Reportedly, Creator/MichaelBay was talking to USAF helicopter pilot [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Characters_in_Transformers_(film)#Decepticons Maj. Brian Reese when one of his subordinates walked by]] singing the theme song of TeamAmerica. The Death Glare he gave the other resulted in Bay casting him as [[{{Film.Transformers}} the Moustache Man]]
* What happens when you drop your daughter to catch a foul ball in front of her mother? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QijpwREKwus&list=FLf6zJrri_GdFadUsdOqSczw&index=11&feature=plpp_video You get this.]]
* Pat Summitt. [[http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/cover/featured/9628/index.htm Full stop.]]
* The Transformer Owl, at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsAbeYpK-6w Here's]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_yTa2TudJQ This possessed cat]].
* UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington was famous for this, in a particularly funny moment with fellow founding father, Gouverneur Morris. Gouverneur made a bet that he could prove he was a good friend of George Washington by approaching him casually at a dinner party. The look Washington gave him after Morris slapped him on the back and shook his hand was apparently "not worth 1,000 meals" according to Morris.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eob7V_WtAVg Epic Teatime with Alan Rickman.]] '''''3:57.'''''
* Richard Pryor told the story of two of these. He was working a Las Vegas casino when he became angry at his pay and/or treatment. He burst into the bosses office and gave him what he called his "Wild [n-word]" stare guaranteed to terrify any white man. The casino boss laughed and embraced him with a "this guy", totally unafraid. However, one of his henchman displeased the boss and when Pryor saw the bosses expression he thought "Oh, man, this guy is dead. He's still breathing and walking around, but he is dead."
* Bill Gates, when IBM engineer David Bradley said that although he invented Ctrl-Alt-Delete, it was Bill that made it famous. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiH-iA9EO_Q Watch.]]
