After the first one chopped off my arm and stabbed me, the rest of them seemed to keep out of my way. Honestly, you'd think they'd never seen a man stabbed before... I hit a few of them with [the severed arm] and they ran off screaming.

Molly Carpenter: You don't know how many things just didn't come here before, because they were afraid.
Harry Dresden: Afraid of what?
Molly: Of you, Harry. You could find anything in this town, but you never even noticed the shadow you cast. [...] Every time you defied someone, every time you came out on top against things you couldn't possibly have beaten, your name grew. And they feared that name. There were other cities to prey on -ó cities that didnít have the mad wizard Dresden defending them. They feared you.

There was a goblin, or a... trickster. Or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or... reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
The Doctor is Oblivious to His Own Description, Doctor Who, "The Pandorica Opens"

From the other side a terror to behold

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible
Master of war
Disturbed, "Indestructible"

They came out of the Bledôw howling and crying, but despite our attackers being well-armed, the Mourners charged them. Two members bled onto the ground from their wrists, and ghostly soldiers materialized from white smoke to help them. Their leader contorted, his mouth turned into an enormous maw, and his hands became a pair of toothy mouths. Another Mourner cried out in anger, time and time again, his very rage rent the flesh of the soldiers he was fighting.
In seconds, the Russians were scattered, leaving the Mourners and us behind. Their leader, once he returned to his human form, saluted us, and gave the team a signal. Then, the Mourners turned and walked back into the desert, leaving us all alone in the night, a night that seemed a little darker than before.
God help me, for that was the first and only time in my life I felt sorry for the Commies.

Once The Darkness gets ahold of you, you start to lose control. You start to wonder what the fuck you're doin'. Time slips away from you. And then, all of a sudden, it's like you're sittin' in a theater, watchin' a movie of your own life. And you're up there on the big screen. Big as life, you're a fuckin' movie star. And you're killin' all the bad guys, tearing them limb from limb. And you feel good. You look good. Fuck, you are good. And then you realize something. Everyone else in the theater: they're screamin', 'cuz they're watchin' a horror movie. And you're not the hero... you're the monster...
Jackie Estacado, The Darkness II

We camp, lying in wait for a hero of incredible prowess. My gut churns with the suspicion that we are simply fodder. I have heard tales of this hero wading through our ranks, slaughtering us as if we were children. I will not sleep again tonight, I fear.
A Dark Cultist, Diablo III

There was a time, [the Vortigaunts] cared nothing for Ms... Vance. When their only experience of humanity was a crowbar, coming at them down a steel corridor.

Security Command issued an all-points alert after the fall of Zebes. The alert concerns bioform Samus Aran, also known as the Hunter. Subject is a female hominid, and is heavily armed and extremely dangerous. Subject uses a powered armorsuit of unknown design in battle, along with a number of potent beam and concussive weapons. All combat units are instructed to terminate Aran on sight, preferably in a fashion that will allow salvage of her powered armorsuit and weapons. A considerable bounty will go to the unit who delivers Aran to Command. Dead or alive, it matters not.

Rosalia: What are you idiots doing?! Quit screwing around and finish him!
Titan's Hand Mook: I don't understand! We threw everything we had at him, how is he still standing?!
Kirito: How? Well, it's quite simple, really. You see, girlie, you may think ya got me all figured out, but there's one thing you didn't account for- (unveils his level 78 stats) -my numbers are bigger than yours!
Mooks: (Mass "Oh, Crap!")
Kirito: Funny thing, really - get to a high enough level, and you're basically untouchable! My wounds heal faster than you can make them. We could do this all day, and you would not be any closer to beating me - not that it wouldn't be fun. But, I've got good news! You see, there's no need to wonder where your god is! 'Cause he's right here! And he's fresh out of mercy.
Mook: (Tears of Fear)
