A form of NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Usually, this is the extremity they'll hit you with, or the one that's the most scarred. ''Blood, talon, skull, fang.''



[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* ''Manga/{{Gunnm}}'': Caerula Sanguis, whose name means "blue blood," both a mark of her [[LadyOfWar regal and elegant bearing]] and of her...shall we say...[[OurVampiresAreDifferent clinical status.]]
* ''Anime/DokiDokiPrecure'' has the [[ArtifactOfDoom Blood]] [[RestrainingBolt Rings]] which were made from [[spoiler: Leva and Gula's esscences after Bel had killed them]]. [[GoldfishPoopGang Ira and Mammo]] are wearing them because [[spoiler: he tricked them into doing so]].

* [[ComicBook/{{Etrigan}} Jason Blood]], to whom an actual demon from Hell is bound. He's extremely knowledgeable as a mystic and demonologist, and he's also immortal.
* [[ComicBook/XMen Sangre]], of the Children of the Vault.
* Bloodsport, the name of three ComicBook/{{Superman}} villains.
* Sebastian "Brother" Blood, immortal human sacrificing cult leader.

* The classic ''Film/CaptainBlood''.

* Creator/RafaelSabatini's famous pirate, [[Literature/CaptainBloodHisOdyssey Captain Blood]], started his career as ''Doctor'' Blood. It works either way! He was not bloodthirsty at all (though he was generally [[GeniusBonus sanguine]]), and was a complex and sensitive man, so his name had a touch of irony to it... Which was completely lost in the [[Film/CaptainBlood movie]], turning him into an uncomplicated badass with an appropriate name.
* The Bloody Baron from the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series, as well as a vampire named Sanguini.
* The crimelord who forms the main antagonist in Gene Wolfe's ''Nightside the Long Sun'' goes by the name of Blood. (In their city men all have single names that refer to animals or animal byproducts, like the protagonist ''Silk'' and his student ''Horn,'' but Blood is still an alarming name even in context.)
* Lapblood the rat from ''Literature/TheUnderlandChronicles.''
* Averted in the second series of ''Literature/WelkinWeasels'' novels, where one of the main characters is named Bryony Bludd, which is lampshaded by (wouldn't you know it?) a vampiric stoat. It's still a MeaningfulName, though; she's a veterinary surgeon (which within the series actually means a doctor to her fellow {{Talking Animal}}s).
* There's a whole evil Clan called [=BloodClan=] in ''Literature/WarriorCats''.
* Literature/TheIcelandicSagas describe a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath brutal killing technique]] called the "blood eagle", which involved carving the victim's back open and tearing the lungs out like wings. It's uncertain whether this historically happened to anyone, though.

* ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'' gives us Blood Stalk, the BigBad of the series who has a habit of [[TheStarscream stabbing all the other villains in the back]], making himself TheManBehindTheMan several times over.

* The evil-sounding connotations of Blood as a name is what led a young, babyface pro-wrestler to switch from his real name, Richard Blood, to the stage name Ricky Steamboat (arguably the only example of a wrestler having a more Badass real name than stage name)

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''
** The Chaos God Khorne, AKA the Blood God.
** The Primarch of the Blood Angels Space Marines chapter was imaginatively named Sanguinus.
*** On the other hand, he was a formidable fighter but not an evil man -- or primarch.
** Another example is the Eldar god of murder/violence/destruction/war Kaela Mensha Khaine the Bloody Handed God, his [[GodInHumanForm Avatars]] also count.

* From ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', there is [[strike:Wally]] the evil pirate Bloodnose!
* And combining this with the XtremeKoolLetterz example below, we have ChaoticEvil AxCrazy PsychoForHire dwarf [[VideoGame/BaldursGateII Korgan Bloodaxe]]
* [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna The Bloodedge]]. In actually, one of the sanest people around. But he has a fearsome OneWingedAngel form which fits the trope to a tee.
* Blood Raven from ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'', the first boss you encounter. If you waltz into the Burial Grounds at LV5, fresh form the Den of Evil, she will mop the floor with you.
* Bloodmonster from the Nightmare, from the obscure UsefulNotes/{{Dada}} game ''[[http://gzstorm.com/78641/ 78641, a Targ Adventure]]'', [[spoiler: is a [[DoubleSubverted Double Subversion]]. He turns out to be a senile old man... but he's also the closest thing the game has to a FinalBoss.]]
* Blood Drops from ''VideoGame/TheGameOfTheAges'' is a legendary warrior.
* Tarro Blood from ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''. A scheming, lying, cheating, bastard that stands as a mockery of the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Mandolorians]], he's the main antagonist in the first part of the Bounty Hunter's storyline.

* [[Webcomic/PennyArcade His name is... Raven Darktalon... Blood!]]
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has a [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080204 Bludtharst Heterodyne]]. Even if he is only mentioned once.

* Sebastian Bludd, better known as ''GIJoe'' villain Major Blood.

* The Bloods, a notorious Los Angeles street gang and sworn enemy of the Crips.
* The only person to get close to successfully stealing the crown jewels of England was named Colonel Thomas Blood. His son Colonel Holcroft Blood was a noted military engineer, as well as the commander of the allied artillery at the [[CurbstompBattle Battle of Blenheim]].
* Wrestling/RickySteamboat and Wrestling/RichieSteamboat are both named Richard Blood in RealLife. They are both faces, but as pro wrestlers, they're still guys you wouldn't want to mess with.
* Elizabeth Báthory, an infamous SerialKiller of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century UsefulNotes/{{Hungary}}, was nicknamed the "Blood Countess".

[[folder:Bone, Skeleton, Skull]]
* There is none more worthy of this than the legendary MARVEL villain Red Skull
* Jack Skellington from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas.''
* ''Film/KongSkullIsland'' {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this with the Skullcrawlers, who are named so by Hank Marlow. The only reason he calls then that is to make them sound scary.

* The short story "Satan's Incubator" by Randolph Craig has a main character named Dr. Skull: This initially seems like an aversion, as he's initially portrayed as a kindly, well-respected and elderly doctor... [[spoiler: Then it turns out Dr. Skull is wearing makeup and a wig to disguise his appearance, and is but one of two alter-egos of the actually young and agile main character - The other is a heroic but deadly vigilante known as The Skull Killer.]]
* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', the second-in-command of the evil [=BloodClan=] is named Bone.

* The recurring Skull Kid and Skulltulas from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''.
* Skullmageddon, the BigBad of Videogame/DoubleDragonNeon
* Dethskulks in ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheRainbowCurse''. Their Japanese name literally means "death skull," and they OneHitKill Kirby if he touches them.
* Team Skull from ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' which is just full of [[{{Jerkass}} jerkassery]].
** Correspondingly, their spiritual successors, Team Skull from ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', are also like that.
* Digimon has Skull Greymon who quote "doesn't have even a scrap of intelligence to balance its combat instinct, its existence is a threat to other Digimon."

* Skeletor and Castle Greyskull from ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983''.

[[folder:Claw, Finger, Fist, Hand]]

* The Claw, from ''Anime/GunXSword''.
* [[EvilOverlord Claw]] from ''Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion''.

* ''Film/FastTimesAtRidgemontHigh'': Mr. Hand, the tyrannical teacher.
* ''Film/DarkCity'': Mr. Hand is the primary antagonist of the film, though not the leader of the Strangers.

* Once [[spoiler:Ralon of Malven]] goes worse in the ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' series, he's referred to as "Claw."
* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', several characters' names end in "-claw", but special mention goes to Tigerclaw, the BigBad. His mentor, a fierce fighter who was on the villainous side himself, was named Thistleclaw. However, some cats with the name 'claw' are actually good cats, like Thornclaw.
* In Creator/NealStephenson's ''Literature/TheBaroqueCycle'', one of [[HangingJudge Jeffreys']] hired assassins is named Dick Gripp. Thankfully, Stephenson never went into how he kills people...

They must both, of course, wear black suits. If there are three of them, this still applies, but [[StickyFingers the new one will be called Fingers]]"''.
* In ''Literature/WingsOfFire'', Mightyclaws' name is supposed to be this, but he's just an emaciated, mostly kind, secretly bitter dragonet. Six-claws, on the other hand, was formerly a competent, if reluctant general of [[TheCaligula Burn]] until his [[DefectorFromDecadence desertion]].

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' once had a villain of the week named Mother Doomfinger. She killed people with, you guessed it, a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin tap of her finger.]]
* Villain of the week "[[JapaneseRanguage The Craw]]" in ''Series/GetSmart''.

* The Hekatoncheires ("the hundred-handed ones") from Myth/ClassicalMythology, who, well...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin each had a hundred hands]] (and fifty heads).
** Subverted with Chiron, the wise centaur who taught many of Greece's greatest heroes. His name means "hand," but it had more the meaning of a hand that guides and assists-- a "helping hand."

* [[VideoGame/{{Fallout}} Deathclaws]]--Sneaks the "Death" in there as well. They're appropriately named though--you really don't want to screw with these guys.
** Talon Company from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''.
* Talon from ''[[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Devil Kings]]''.
* Master Hand and Crazy Hand of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros.''
* The Black Hand from the ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' series. Which may or may not be the same Black Hand that started WWI, and are the most elite forces of the Brotherhood of Nod.
* The dreaded Dead Hand from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' is a zombie-like abomination which, despite its name, lacks actual hands (it only has severed stumps in place of hands). However, it's surrounded by several arms (complete with hands) sticking up from the ground, and they can grab Link to assist the Dead Hand in battle.

* The absolutely terrifying [[Webcomic/{{Goblins}} Mr. Fingers]], a creature created from a DealWithTheDevil to rid a child of his nightmares by giving it physical form. [[NightmareFuel It has fingers instead of teeth]] and [[BodyHorror dissolves flesh by contact.]]

* Klaw, main enemy of ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'': Claw chooses who will go and who will stay!
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'': The Hooded Claw, that guy who's always trying to kill Penelope Pitstop.
* The Claw, the BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/ChuckNorrisKarateKommandos''.
* Talon [[spoiler: formerly Derek Maza, Elisa's brother,]] in ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''.
* ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'' villain [[TheBrute Clawful]].

** Know that there are several Transformers named Razorclaw, and none are to be trifled with lightly!
** There's also a couple named Chainclaw, and you probably shouldn't screw with them either.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y%C3%ACh%C3%A9qu%C3%A1n Fists of Harmony and Justice]], nicknamed "Boxers" in English, were a secret society in late ImperialChina who first rebelled against the [[UsefulNotes/DynastiesFromShangToQing Qing dynasty]], then ''[[EnemyMine teamed up]]'' with the Qing dynasty [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxer_Rebellion to fight off meddling foreigners]]. [[CurbStompBattle It didn't end well for China.]]

[[folder:Corpse, Carcas, Cadaver]]
* ''Anime/BloodPlus'' Corpse Corps, anyone? Although by the time you get to the end, you'd run away from the Chevaliers.

* ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear'': Is a guy named Karkas going to be anything but a villain?

* In the classic Series/DoctorWho story ''The Mind Robber'', the Doctor and Co. are menaced by an incarnated fictional character called the Karkus. Technically a super''hero'' in the universe of the story he was summoned from, but in ''The Mind Robber'' he's a villain ([[HeelFaceTurn at least]] [[DefeatEqualsFriendship at first]]), but even without his [[TechnoBabble anti-molecular ray disintegrator]], he's definitely one [[SuperStrength tough]] [[SuperToughness customer]].

* Queen Cadavra from ''VideoGame/{{Bug}}'', a fat, evil, obnoxious black widow spider queen who's the BigBad of the game.
* In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'': Violetta/Viola Cadaverini.

* Myth/ClassicalMythology:
** The [[{{Cyclops}} Cyclopes]] ("circle-eye").
** Argus Panoptes ("all-eyes," which points to his constantly watchful nature as well as EyesDoNotBelongThere).
*** The "Argus Monitor" is a medium-size lizard with a pattern that resembles eyes, which is why it was named for this mythical character. It's almost a subversion, though, since other monitor lizards are ''much'' bigger and more formidable than it is.

* ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' has "Devil Eyes" Quixoto, a vampire that likes to use his telepathy to mentally torture his victims before feeding from them and leaving them to be finished off by wild animals. His preferred food is human children.


[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Since 'kiba' is the Japanese word for 'fang', Kiba the dog-themed ninja from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' and Kiba the wolf from ''Manga/WolfsRain'' also qualify.
* As does ''Anime/{{Kiba}}'', though for whatever reason its protagonist doesn't share the title's name, instead he's called ''Zed.'' Weird.

* High Overlord [[MemeticBadass Saurfang]] of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''.

* Fang, a badly drawn dog who often appears in ''ComicBook/ChickTracts''. He barks and snarls at everyone, [[EvilDetectingDog including demons]].

* Creator/PhyllisDiller's fictional stand-up routine husband.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'''s Fang: Wields a dual headed collapsible spear that can be separated and dual wielded. She's naturally the best attacker of the game [[spoiler: Plus she had turned into Ragnarok centuries ago and made that huge hole in Cocoon's shell you always see.]]
* Also, the FourFangs from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''.
* Fang The Sniper of ''SonicTheHedgehog''.

* And [[PettingZooPeople Fang the mutate]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''.
* Fang, the thug with a spider for a head, from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''

* Several [[Film/JamesBond Bond girls]], like Pussy Galore and Octopussy, have names that indicate their [[TheVamp vampish]] nature.
* PlayedForLaughs with Biggus Dickus from ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian.''

* In the episode "The Headband" of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Sokka briefly wears a fake BadassBeard and adopts the alias "[[AwesomeMcCoolname Wang Fire]]" (yes, ''Wang'' Fire, on a ''Nickelodeon cartoon'') while posing as Aang's father. [[note]]Sokka has worn the beard on several occasions after this, including a mini-comic in which he infiltrates the Fire Nation military under the name Wang Fire. The comic ended with him pretending to be killed while taking out a Waterbender and Earthbender, and being remembered as a hero.[[/note]] Although not particularly intimidating in the show, Wang Fire has become a MemeticBadass among fans, identified as the god of manliness and beards and as a separate entity from Sokka.


* [[Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} Foggy "Guts" Nelson]], at first a subversion since it was just his bowling nickname, but a lame attempt at an undercover identity and some AcquiredSituationalNarcissism led to mysterious crimelord "Guts" standing up to the Kingpin.

[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]

* Only known name of a revenge-driven serial killer in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' who is out to get every single state alchemist and all those who get in his way via alchemical brain explosion. He's so effective at this that all high-ranking officers temporarily abandon their HQ in Central City where he was spotted and head out to the Eastern boondocks.

[[AC: ComicBook ]]
* [[http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix2/scarthestalker.htm Scar the Stalker]]

* Subverted in John Ford's classic, ''The Searchers'': Cicatrice, aka "Scar," does indeed commit a heinous act in killing a settler family and kidnapping the two daughters...but after that he spends his time either oblivious to (as in, living his life and leading his tribe) or ''running from'' the man who spends years hunting him down, {{Determinator}} Ethan Edwards.
* Film/{{Scarface|1983}}

* In Creator/StephanieBurgis's ''[[Literature/KatIncorrigible A Tangle of Magicks ]]'', the heartless seducers is Viscount Scarwood.

* The protagonist's badass best friend from the ''Literature/HIVESeries''.
* All of the dragon tribes in ''Literature/WingsOfFire''.
* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', "-wing" is an occasional suffix, although it's almost always used for a gentle character (Whitewing, Kestrelwing, Softwing, etc). There's also "Wing Shadow Over Water" (usually called "Wing", for short), a Tribe cat who - like all Tribe cats - got her name from the first thing her mother saw at her birth, and knowing the mountains, it was probably a hunting eagle or falcon.

* Blitzwing, Thunderwing, Darkwing, Wing Dagger, Wing Saber, and about a dozen other {{Transformers}} with "wing" in their name. Although the Decepticon Darkwing's name is less threatening, due to the unfortunate coincidence of being shared with [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck a Disney duck character]].

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'': Deathwing.


[[AC: {{Anime}} & {{Manga}}]]
* The Primevals in ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' are all named after body parts, and each wields a power vaguely related to the part in question (Arm can punch people with gravity waves, Eye has precognition, etc.) Might not sound so scary until you realize that they can turn regular people into [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Zonders]] with TheVirus, [[WeaponizedLandmark turn famous landmarks]] [[spoiler: [[WeaponizedLandmark and the moons of Jupiter]]]] [[WeaponizedLandmark into weapons]] and [[spoiler: fuse into the planet-sized Z-Master]]

Even the benevolent ones have names like [[EccentricMentor Boneclaw Mother]], and the smaller less aggressive males names like [[OminousOwl Owl-Caller.]]
* Pirate Captain "Blackheart" Robert Black from ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' who treated Charby like a slave from infancy forcing him to fight with dogs for scraps of food and regularly beating him. Black was also a skilled swordsman and notorious for his cruelty.

* Steeljaw, a cunning and charismatic Decepticon who serves as the BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise''.
