The Grim Reaper shows up as the boss in a setting where you wouldn't expect to see him, such as a soap opera. He even sings a few verses that contains "I came from no where to fight you as a boss, I gain nothing from your loss" in it.
Deconstructed: The Grim Reaper's appearance causes the people of the world to live in constant fear that he — or another Giant Space Flea — will pop up out of nowhere and attack them. And with no way to anticipate what kind of threat could come out of nowhere, there's no way to even try to prepare for it, which doesn't help assuage fears at all.
