Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })In many series, there will be a character who is much larger and more intimidating than most everyone else, very strong, often quite quiet, and very often this character will be black.
Sometimes they can be the Token Minority, sometimes they're a Proud Warrior Race Guy, and sometimes they're a Gentle Giant. But the fact remains that when you get right down to it, they're a scary black man. Not necessarily evil, just... scary.
Authors will often claim this is not actually done in a racist way (not intentionally, anyway), as most anybody who is so much larger than the other characters will usually be equally scary (unless they're also outgoing or jolly). However, perhaps because of a lack of very large Asians who aren't sumo or very large white people who aren't professional wrestlers in a cameo role, they are often black. (This is the same reason that a Huge Schoolgirl usually isn't mean, either.) However, American media depictions cannot escape the legacy of the Big Black Buck (as featured in such influential films as D. W. Griffith's pro-Klan propaganda film The Birth of a Nation), the savage (noble or not), or modern thug culture. Amongst other reasons, when much of the creating population and the consuming population is not of African descent, then the Black Guy becomes Other, and as such, easier to position as an imposing, scary force.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The few black characters in anime are usually some variation on this. However, this is not the place to discuss the reason.
See also Scary Minority Suspect. Often Crosses over with Gentle Giant, Genius Bruiser, Proud Warrior Race Guy, and Token Minority, as noted both above and in the examples below. Compare Angry Black Man.
Note that the character doesn't necessarily have to be of African descent, just large, imposing, brown/dark-skinned, and have a tendency to make people wet themselves with a single glare. If a Black male character has other characters fearing him after he performs a certain action he is not a Scary Black Man, a Scary Black Man has people fearing him because of his intimidating appearance. Despite some of the Unfortunate Implications associated with this Trope, some of these characters become popular because of how badass they are. The obvious subversion is to make this character not nearly as scary personality-wise as their imposing first appearances might otherwise suggest. Another subversion can be to have the character only act this way in certain specific situations—a man might be a loving father and an otherwise affable and easygoing person...who immediately turns into an enraged Papa Wolf whenever his loved ones are threatened.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Despite the trope name, female examples do exist. But since female characters are rarely portrayed as fighters or overtly threatening in the same way that male ones are, Scary Black Women remain a distinct rarity.

The titular character in Othello is seen this way by his enemies, and (apart from the quiet part) can be played this way even. By his friends too one would assume. Othello is a soldier and after all, it is a soldier's job to be scary so one would assume his friends would like to think him good at his job even if Othello wasn't scary to them personally.

In the fifth season of Detective Conan, an old man named Yoshifusa Yamauchi comes back from Brazil to claim his share of his deceased brother's huge inheritance and brings a SBM named Carlos as his bodyguard. It's surprisingly averted: Yoshifusa is actually Dickson Tanaka who is impersonating the deceased Yoshifusa and is Carlos's bodyguard since the supposed Scary Black Man was a harmless Gentle Giant - and Yoshifusa's son with a black Brazilian woman, whom Dickson swore to protect from his friend's Big, Screwed-Up Family.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air:
"Mad Dog" from one ep manages to inspire three Oh, Crap! reactions from Will and Carlton while he is asleep. The first upon hearing his scary name, the second upon coming out of the closet half-naked and seeing his huge 300-lb frame, the third was when they tried to grab their clothes from under him and stirred him awake.
Uncle Phil, while usually a pretty nice guy, is also perfectly capable of being this. Among his moments, his "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Will's deadbeat dad is a sight to behold.

Nadine Ross of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a Scary Black Woman. The leader of the Private Military Contractors Shoreline- most of whom are also South Africans- Nadine is the Black Boss Lady and formidable in combat. How formidable is she? Nate's first confrontation with her is a Hopeless Boss Fight that ends with her throwing him out of a window, and the second match doesn't go any better. Nate can only actually hit her by jumping on top of her from a great height. And she's a Karma Houdini by the end of the game. In the sequel, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Nadine's still formidable, but she's a lot more friendly now, and allied with new protagonist Chloe Frazer. It helps that, being a mercenary, Nadine's only a Punch-Clock Villain.

Dragon Age:
Dragon Age: Origins mixes it up a little with the Scary Large Ambiguously Brown Qunari Sten, who tends to speak very little and utilize a very big stick (the game lighting renders him a moderately-dark brown, though the texture maps for his skin are nearly black). If you talk to the guy who took Sten's sword with him in your party, you even get to refer to him as "my large, angry friend."
Dragon Age II shows all the kossith you meet (both Qunari and Tal-Vashoth) as being a silvery-grey color, perhaps to lessen the Unfortunate Implications or perhaps to make a Visual Pun on the Grey-and-Gray Morality of the world (or perhaps Black-and-Gray Morality, though who is black and who is grey likely depends on your personal viewpoint).
Dragon Age: Inquisition has revealed a Qunari◊ who seems to be a slightly browner version of grey, so perhaps kossith simply run the gamut of bronze to silver. Either way, though, they tend to be The Stoic and also the biggest guy in the room by a large margin, which makes them pretty scary no matter what color their skin is.

Subverted in The Walking Dead with Dexter; while he certainly looks the part, he's actually pretty friendly until he's falsely accused of murdering two children, locked up without trial, and when the killer turns out to be someone else, he's simply let out without any kind of apology. He's not so friendly after that.

Bleach:
Averted by the half-Mexican Yasutora "Chad" Sado, who has the looks but is a quiet Gentle Giant until he needs to fight and protect his friends.
Kaname Tosen also averts this, but in another way. He is definitely a bad guy, but his slim build and blindness don't make him look that threatening at first glance.
Played straight with the likes of Yammy and Zommari from Aizen's Espada. They're very intimidating fellows no thanks to their builds.

Chuck has several:
Big Mike, the Buy More manager, is rarely seen actually being scary (his usual laziness is punctuated with occasional angry yelling) but all the employees are terrified of him.
Michael Strahan had a cameo as an employee from a rival store who terrorizes Morgan until Anna beats Michael Strahan's character up. ("Chuck vs. the Break-Up")
Michael Clarke Duncan appeared as a villain and even said to Chuck, "I assume you find me imposing. I was going for imposing." ("Chuck vs. the First Date")
Subverted when Jerome "The Bus" Bettis guest-starred and played an imposing and muscular ex-con friend and football teammate of Big Mike's who needed a job and briefly worked at the Buy More. The crew assumed he was a former gangster or other violent criminal. Turns out he was actually convicted of bank fraud.

Living Dead Series:
Land of the Dead had Eugene Clark as a scary black dead man.
Diary of the Dead. The teenaged protagonists are captured by what appears to be black gang members led by a softly-spoken badass who is the embodiment of this trope. The group is visibly nervous, with the Ms. Fanservice of the group pulling her coat across her cleavage for the only time in the entire movie. It turns out they're ex-National Guard who end up (after some aggressive negotiating) giving them the supplies they need — which ironically enough are stolen by a group of white National Guardsmen.

The Haitian on Heroes.
May be a subversion given that he is actually a fairly decent guy... it's just that he has the bad tendency of taking orders from all the wrong people. Though as all of them have been white and he's been shown as being a good man when NOT following orders from them... well, it opens up a whole bunch of OTHER Unfortunate Implications.
In Volume 3, a black villain named Knox inadvertently takes advantage of this trope seeing as how fear powers his Super Strength. Unfortunate Implications, away!
Later, we are introduced to the Haitian's brother, who is quite possibly the scariest black guy yet to be seen on the show. Although his power is invulnerability, it is off for most of his appearance. Just to give you an idea of how scary he is.
Before the writers got lazy and started playing the Unfortunate Implications completely straight, they subverted this trope with DL Hawkins. His white, blonde wife Niki first describes him to the police as a terrifying, unstoppable felon who's committed a string of brutal murders. When DL actually shows up, he turns out to be a devoted, cuddly father who was actually framed for the killings - by his frail-looking white wife, no less, whose psychopathic, super-strong alter ego actually committed them.
We also have a scary black man in the GN's in the shape of Marcus. He may not LOOK scary but he's a warped as hell serial killer who takes great joy in bending and breaking people's bodies.

The Tales Series has a few.
Barbatos Goetia (the "No items ever", boss) from Tales of Destiny 2. Brown-skinned, large, and such a nasty guy that historians opted to remove him from recorded history; something he seeks to rectify when he gets revived. It's hard not to like him despite his evilness, though, largely thanks to who he's voiced by.
In the same series, Tales of Rebirth gives us two examples.:
Among the darker-furred characters are Eugene Gallardo, who looks big and strong enough to tear your face off without trying... and is actually the nicest and most considerate Team Dad you're ever going to meet, to the point that he even tries to comfort the girl who believes he murdered her father.
The second example is Tohma, who is very much an Evil Genius Manipulative Bastard who likes to fuck with people's heads for no other reason than because their despair makes him laugh. He forms a particularly horrible Salt and Pepper duo with his partner, the pasty-faced Saleh. Their interactions are pretty much the two of them trying to out-do each other in Moral Event Horizon crossing.
Jiao from Tales of Xillia. He's massive compared to everyone else in the cast and wields a similarly gigantic hammer in battle. He's not really a bad guy, though (At least not anymore), and is easily the most calm and level-headed out of the Chimeriad members.
In Tales of Xillia 2, an alternate version of him really emphasizes the "scary" part.

Naruto:
Killer Bee looks this and is definitely a scary foe, but is actually one of the more easygoing people in the cast (granted that this is usually expressed by having him rapping during fights.) Though he beats the living tar out of Sasuke when Sasuke attacks him, he then turns around, fools the Akatsuki, and fakes his death, all so he can go on vacation.
A the 4th Raikage—Killer Bee's older brother—is more of a straight example: he's huge, intimidating, and seems to be angry most of the time, which is manifested in his tendency to break furniture and walls.
In turn, A's father the 3rd Raikage was even more so. Cooler tempered than A, in possession of an impressive beard, he was an incredibly imposing ninja who could fight with entire armies.

Features twice in Roseanne:
Season 2's "Lobocop" has two barflies at the Lobo square off, with one mouthing off to a Scary Black Man playing pool at the back of the bar; needless to say, he is not amused.
Season 7's "White Men Can't Kiss" has Roseanne see the father of one of DJ's classmates and DJ's future father-in-law this way - right after spending half the episode giving Dan a hard time for his own subconscious prejudice.

Potemkin from Guilty Gear is black (or at least very, very dark-skinned), enormous, and hugely strong — he sketches in his spare time, but needs special supplies, as he breaks ordinary pencils just by trying to use them, applying several tons of pressure. He's also one of nicest guys in the entire series.
Venom from the same series is a subversion, however he's cold, calculating and ruthless.

Torque from The Suffering and its sequel The Suffering: The Ties That Bind is the very epitome of this trope. He is most certainly African-American (with some white mixed in). He practically never talks...except to those that he is particularly close to. Both games show that he can use weapons just fine... not to mention turn into a Homage of the Incredible Hulk and tear apart anything with his bare hands! He also suffers from some form of dementia.

Inquisitor Mordecai Toth from Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War. A scary black man with a thunder hammer, a bolt pistol, and Psychic Powers. Yet he also does the one thing you would never expect an Inquisitor to do: admit he was wrong about his accusation of heresy and daemonic corruption. Too bad the game implies and novelization outright states that he was a spy all along.

Dragon Age: Inquisition has revealed a Qunari◊ who seems to be a slightly browner version of grey, so perhaps kossith simply run the gamut of bronze to silver. Either way, though, they tend to be The Stoic and also the biggest guy in the room by a large margin, which makes them pretty scary no matter what color their skin is.

Scrubs, besides being the Trope Namer, has played with this trope several times:
Turk and JD frequently play "World's Tallest Doctor" by having JD stand on Turk's shoulders. They once did it the other way round. People ran.
Hooch is a bit of a subversion since he is not physically imposing at all: short and kind of skinny. He only fits the trope because, well, Hooch is crazy.
Leonard the security guard is a more typical example, especially since he has a hook for a hand.
One episode featured an old friend of Dr. Cox, who used this trope to put a quick end to unwanted conversations.

The Dresden Files: Sanya is a Twofer Token Minority of this and Husky Russkie. He stops being scary when you get to know him, particularly because he's a modern-day Paladin. The real deal, with a holy sword and everything.

Supernatural:
Uriel is a scary, black, evil angel. He does not like humanity and he has threatened to go against his orders and destroy the Winchesters as well as an innocent town. He has also decided to side with Lucifer and was subverting his garrison one angel at a time, and killing the ones who said no.
Raphael, who knocked out the entire eastern seaboard just by touching down to Earth. Although in a later appearance he was wearing a black woman, instead. Presumably they were relatives.
Also before them there was Gordon Walker, the first hunter to turn on the boys. Big, strong, black guy in love with violence. He was creepy in his first appearance, insane in his second, and turned into an especially scary vampire in his third. Until then he was one of the best vampire hunters alive. He is also kind of psycho and gets fixated on the idea that Sam is the Antichrist.
His opposite number was introduced in season three, the FBI agent assigned to the Winchester case, Victor Hendriksen, a youngish black man with a bit of a Cowboy Cop attitude and a slight obsession with bagging Dean. He is the least scary of the four black recurring characters. The others were Black Dude Dies First or other one-offs.
There was also Rufus Turner, old semi-Retired Badass and Bobby's former partner. Fairly scary, but on 'is a hunter and 'is a hard-assed old man' lines, more than Scary Black Man ones.

Emile from Halo: Reach. Although you never see his face and it's not directly stated that he's black, you can tell from his voice and concept art that he is black. He has difficulty properly dealing with people outside of the military and was planned to be replaced on missions against insurrectionists because the way he treated them would scare civilians. He also has a shotgun. And the big honkin' knife on his pauldron. And the skull he carved into his visor. Something has to be said that such a visor would be designed to withstand bullets and white-hot plasma, but he went ahead and knifed a pretty elaborate carving into it.

Django Unchained: Samuel L. Jackson again as Stephen, a sadistic black slave owner (technically Calvin Candie's "Head Slave", but still the second-in-command and above the other slaves). How much scary is he as a scary black man? To the point of bringing Django's enslaved wife to tears and say out loud that she's scared of him.

Absolute Power: Agent Collin (played with chilling serenity by Dennis Haysbert) will serve his President, even if that means committing cold-blooded premeditated murder. His partner Agent Burton at least admits his disgust with what they've been forced to do openly, but Collin seems to have no such compunctions.

Zigzagged on Brooklyn Nine-Nine with Sgt. Terry Jeffords, a tall, muscular, and imposing African-American officer who, personality-wise, is really just a big softie at heart. However, he does have a bit of a short fuse... but it's mainly bluster, and he's by and large mild-mannered... unless you really piss him off, in which case he can get pretty darned terrifying.

Raubahn of Final Fantasy XIV easily is this. The Bull of Ala Mhigo, the man won 100 battles in the Ul'Dah Colosseum, earning him a place by Sultana Nanamo ul Namo's side and becoming leader of the country's army, the Eternal Flames. Even when he becomes a Handicapped Badass, he's still a frightening threat. Just don't piss him off, like insulting Nanamo while everyone around thinks she's dead. Ask Teledji Adeledji...

Luke Cage (2016):
Averted with Luke Cage, despite his strength and power. But he invokes this with other criminals.
Willis "Diamondback" Stryker. One assumes that part of the reason Erik LaRay Harvey was cast for this role is because he has a deep gravelly voice that just oozes menace, which is appropriate for a character who can wipe out an entire legion of bodyguards then casually crash a mob meeting and kill four gang bosses without breaking a sweat.

Homestuck: Spades Slick, Hearts Boxcars, and Diamonds Droog of the Midnight Crew all qualify. Clubs Deuce... not so much.
Only in the extremely literal sense, as they're from a single-race culture where everyone is black, making their color not really relevant. HB is by far the most physically imposing; he's easily half again as tall as SS and DD (who appear to be of "average" height) and closer to 3 times as tall as CD.

Briareos from Appleseed is a rather hidden example. Although he's almost entirely machine, pictures drawn by creator Shirow Masamune have shown that he was black before becoming a cyborg, and he fits otherwise. It's also worth noting that, based on evidence from the movie Appleseed Ex Machina, the artificial skin under Briareos's armor is literally black — as in, the color of a car tire. In that movie, Briareos is more Asiatic than black, though - the artists wanted him to be a traditional pretty-boy, apparently.

James Bond:
In Live and Let Die, Baron Samedi (especially scary as it is implied that he cannot be killed, even by Bond - he's the voodoo god of the dead, after all), Tee Hee (fella with the metal arm), Mr. Big and Dr. Kananga (main antagonists) and Adam, one of their henchmen, all fit this trope.
Steven Obanno in Casino Royale (2006) is the armed leader of the Lord's Resistance Army, who call on Le Chiffre to provide banking services for them. You don't get much scarier than someone like him wielding a machete and threatening to mutilate Le Chiffre's girlfriend after Le Chiffre loses their money to a foiled terrorist attack.
Also from Casino Royale: Mollaka, the bomber Bond chases down in the beginning.
May Day from A View to a Kill is a female example of this trope. When she's not throwing scary Death Glares, she kills people ruthlessly.

Former WWECW wrestler Big Daddy V is 500 pounds(!) of half-Scary Black Man, half-The Giant; of course, the one thing (well, two things... possibly three) that's even scarier than his power and his quietness are his gargantuan man-boobs. I tells ya, those things are just creepy... Nelson Frazier, the man behind V, started with WWE in 1993, first as the rapper Mabel, then as the aristocrat King Mabel, then the gothic Viscera, and then as the world's largest love machine. However, he has always been a scary black man, as anybody who saw him break The Undertaker's face in 95 can tell you. Though at least, in those incarnations, he had a shirt.

The Dark Knight:
The hulking prisoner Ginty (played by Tiny Lister) convinces the prison guard captain to give him the explosives detonator to do "what he should have did 10 minutes ago," presumably blowing up the other boat and saving everyone on his own boat. Instead, he tosses the detonator out the window, choosing to make a principled sacrifice rather than be coerced into murder.
Played straight by Gambol, the black gangster, at least until Joker crashes his party.
Played straight in the '89 film. Joker employs one of these guys. He's the only henchman to give Batman trouble.
Tiny Lister plays this as his standard character type:

Black Panther:
Played for Laughs,subverted, and invoked with M'Baku, the leader of the Jabari tribe. Although he has the appearance of a barbaric tribesman, he's actually an honorable Chieftain who cares about his men and becomes Fire-Forged Friends with T'Challa. M'Baku himself exploits this trope for his amusement, like when he threatens to feed Everett Ross (a white CIA agent allied with the Wakandan Royal Family) to his family, only to burst into laughter and reveal that they are vegetarians.
Played straight with Killmonger. Although he is smaller and more attractive than most examples, including his original comics counterpart, Killmonger is still a ruthless killer who has scars covering his torso with each one representing a person he killed.
T’Challa himself also qualifies. He may not come off as imposing at first, but if someone happens to get on his bad side, he becomes downright terrifying.

Dragon Age: Origins mixes it up a little with the Scary Large Ambiguously Brown Qunari Sten, who tends to speak very little and utilize a very big stick (the game lighting renders him a moderately-dark brown, though the texture maps for his skin are nearly black). If you talk to the guy who took Sten's sword with him in your party, you even get to refer to him as "my large, angry friend."

In The Trial of the Chicago 7, Bobby Seale is put on trial alongside the seven protest organizers to play into this trope. He points out during the trial that he doesn't even know any of them and is only being thrown in to make the defendants look like terrifying revolutionaries because he's the co-founder of the Black Panthers—he himself was only in Chicago for a few hours to give a speech.note And though it's not stated in the film itself, he only went to fill in for someone else. This backfires when Judge Hoffman's flagrant abuse of Seale's rights culminates in his ordering Seale to be shackled and gagged in open court. The prosecution asks for Seale's case to be declared a mistrial because the spectacle is so horrifying that Seale can't be viewed as anything but a victim of racism.

Pathfinder has Linxia Benzekri, who's essentially a Gender Flip of this trope. She's effectively Seelah's shadow archetype—and even somewhat resembles her, at least in terms of being a tall, sinewy, serious-faced (Seelah◊ seems to default to Determined Expression, Linxia◊ to Death Glare) Garundi woman who goes around in heavy armor—but she's shaven-headed in lieu of Seelah's Braids of Action, has the emblem of her Hellknight order tattooed on her forehead, wears blued-steel armor with a tattered purple cape (in contrast to Seelah's Knight in Shining Armor look), and is canonically Lawful Evil (albeit with Anti-Villain cred).

Abaddon is a tall, scary Man in Black. He doesn't fit the description completely because he's not very big and imposing. He's just... really creepy.

Amazing Kong/Awesome Kong/Kharma is a Scary Black Woman.
Not to mention her mentor/inspiration Aja Kong, monster of Japanese women's wrestling in the 90s (as well as a brief run in the WWF, most notably Survivor Series 1995). Half-black, half-Japanese, all badass. As her awesome theme song put it:
Another Scary Black Woman of wrestling is Jazz, who wasn't much taller than most of the other wrestlers (as opposed to the last two examples), but was more muscular than the other "divas" and often came out of nowhere to attack people in no shape to defend themselves.

Pavalo Payal from The Traitor Son Cycle. He's a giant of a man and an excellent swordsman, who's introduced to the story when he comes out of nowhere and slaughters four men who have cornered Blanche. The people of Alba, most of whom have never seen a black man in their lives, initially think he's a demon she's summoned.

The Walking Dead:
Michonne would be a female example. The fact that she is walking around with two walkers on a leash, is taciturn, not very social, and deadly with a katana doesn't help (at least, initially, until she begins to trust the group and vice-versa).
Tyrese also qualifies, being very tall and muscular, and people are afraid to anger him because of his temper (the fact that he went berserk several times, including against Rick, doesn't really help).

Meyer from The Orion Conspiracy is very much this. He is the engineer of the space station, but do not be fooled! He will cuss and insult you most of the time. He has a problem respecting authority. He also tells Devlin that he was a soldier in the Corporation War, and even as an engineer, he can take care of himself and kick a lot of ass.

Ganondorf, from The Legend of Zelda, is a terrifying black man. Though he's more Ambiguously Brown than anything, he certainly counts, up until he goes One-Winged Angel.note As if to address any accusations of Unfortunate Implications, though, his fellow Gerudos aren't nearly as horrid as him. He's also kind of green, which mitigates it further.

Agil from Sword Art Online looks the part, but subverts this trope by being a friendly man who stood up for beta testers when they were being blamed for hindering other players. He also helped lower-level players when he wasn't running his shop. He's a pretty good example of why this trope is common in anime: Not only are black men extremely rare in Japan (he's the only one in the entire series), but he's roughly two feet taller than everyone else. It's hard not to be intimidated by someone like that, no matter how nice they are.

This shows up in Getter Robo, of all places. This trope shows up at /least/ in Neo Getter vs. Shin Getter Robo, Getter Robo Armageddon, and New Getter Robo, though it could've appeared in many different mangas. The funny thing is that the gigantic hulking black man is invariably beaten by the main character in the episode they appear in, then never shows up again. They mostly go without a name, too.

The Thug enemy in Hotline Miami is a Scary Black Man: they are one of the only enemies that doesn't use a weapon, can sponge up more shots than regular mooks, is a little bit faster than other enemies, and will seriously mess you up if you're stupid enough to even pick a melee fight (with or without a melee weapon) with him. And he happens to be scary, black, and big.

The first Saints Row gave us the leading members of the Vice Kings, with the foremost being its leader Benjamin King, who's a Genius Bruiser with a Badass Baritone and is the man who (as he said himself) effectively turned a group of practically ineffectual bangers into one of the most powerful gangs in Stillwater. True, Warren Williams and Anthony Green are intimidating in their own right, but it's Ben King that's got both of them beat.

Played with by Dennis Rogers in Far Cry 3. He's a Liberian who joined the Rakyat after experiencing racism in America, and physically is not that imposing, but we're first introduced to him standing over Jason tattooing his arm, and then pulling a machete on him when he reaches for his knife, to warn him "You have a right to take my life, but know I will also take yours." For the most part, he doesn't fight directly, just serving as a Magical Negro advising Jason on how to fit in with the Rakyat. But then we discover that he's actually encouraging Jason's Sanity Slippage, and if Jason ultimately rejects the Rakyat Blood Knight lifestyle by the end of the game, an enraged Dennis tries stabbing him where he stands... only for Citra to shield him at the cost of her life.

He is, for the most part, an Arms Dealer and Badass Preacher who is fond of shouting Biblical passages whilst pointing guns at Ajay in a very carefree manner, and he reveals that he used to be a warlord before surviving a bullet to the head that made him undergo a Heel–Faith Turn. But for the most part, he doesn't look that scary, and he's only ever helpful to Ajay to make up for the atrocities he carried out back in Africa.

Played straight, then subverted in the "Cabin" episode of New Girl, in which Schmidt and Winston go to a bad neighborhood, ostensibly to buy some crack cocaine in order for Winston to embrace his blackness. Winston is seeing just how far Schmidt will go in making a fool of himself, when the Scary Black Man gets into their car, freaking them out. Bath parties think the other is trying to mug them, but Scary Black Man finds out Schmidt and Winston are looking for crack, Schmidt and Winston find out Scary Black Man was just offering them help, and they part amicably.

30 Rock plays with the trope with Dot Com and Grizz, Tracy Jordan's two friends/bodyguards/entourage. They are both gigantic, and are more than capable of looking extremely scary...but are really just huge teddy bears—smart ones, too. Dot Com is actually The Smart Guy—he is a graduate of Wesleyan and has a way of being the smartest guy in the room that Jack Donaghy finds "off-putting".
When Hazel gives her deposition alleging a culture of harassment, she mentions Grizz and Dotcom, describing them as two big, black guys who were always pestering her - to join their book club.

Lost:
Mr. Eko, played by the aforementioned Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Especially in his first few appearances, where he spends most of his time not talking, looking mean, and beating people with what Charlie sarcastically calls his "Jesus stick".
Abaddon is a tall, scary Man in Black. He doesn't fit the description completely because he's not very big and imposing. He's just... really creepy.

Black Lightning is an easy going guy who, despite his incredible power, avoids the trope. His archenemy Tobias Whale, on the other hand, is a four hundred pound African-American gang boss who runs most of the drugs in Metropolis, almost burned down Gotham City in a Mob War, and has a history of beating people to death with his hands if sufficiently annoyed—though the trope is downplayed both by Tobias's albinism and the fact that his main enemy is himself black.

BattleTech had Khan Lincoln Osis of Clan Smoke Jaguar. He was an Elemental, a genetically engineered- super infantry warrior who stood more than eight feet tall. He was also Hot-Blooded, impulsive, and aggressive- when he was in charge of his Clan, he tried to fix their perpetual resource problem by simply raiding all their neighbors. Subverted by Santin West, who was Khan of Clan Nova Cat. Also an Elemental and of similar stature to Khan Osis, Santin West was known for being calm, level-headed, and fairly congenial.

Professional Wrestling's best example: New Jack: he's a former bounty hunter with four confirmed kills, oh and that isn't Kayfabe. In an interview he says he's glad he wasn't victim to a botch, he tried pushing him off the thirty-foot ledge. And that his favorite match was the Mass Transit incident where a 17-year-old was almost killed. He also had a big scar on the top of his head, which invoked memories of a certain someone.

Moses Hightower in the Police Academy movies seems to belong to this trope, but ONLY in appearance. He does get in a good scary look in at times, such as his first appearance. (Lining up for their first day at recruit school, the recruits are ordered to stand each with his right hand on the next person's left shoulder. We're looking at a white supremacist who finds himself surrounded by blacks, and who can't help but make a racist remark. A giant black hand falls upon his left shoulder. The racist looks left and up...and up...and up...)

The Boondocks:
In "A Date with the Health Inspector", Tom DuBois has recurring nightmares about being accosted in prison by the Health Inspector, a massively muscled and massively well-endowed inmate voiced by (and visually based on) Terry Crews.
Another deliberate example would include the male half of BET's evil henchmen, Big Nigga. Then again, his fellow henchwoman is Crazy Bitch, a Sassy Black Woman who's actually even more scary than her partner.
Later in "A Date with the Booty Warrior", Tom's fears almost come true when he tries to survive a tour of a prison filled with scary black convicts who rape other men as a hobby. The scariest inmate of all is the Booty Warrior, who was convicted of raping Chris Hansen (the host of To Catch a Predator)!

In The Elder Scrolls, the Redguards of Hammerfell, as a race, are viewed as this by the other races of Tamriel. Dark-skinned with wiry-hair and athletic builds, they are one of Tamriel's Proud Warrior Races with a particular cultural affinity to swords and swordsmanship. After their ancient homeland of Yokuda sunk beneath the sea, the survivors sailed to Tamriel and chose to settle in the deserts of Hammerfell, one of Tamriel's most inhospitable environments. After only a few brutal months, Hammerfell was cleansed of any Men, Mer (Elves), or beast to make it safe for settlement. This even included Orcs and giant goblins. It took being weakened during a brutal Civil War for Tiber Septim to claim Hammerfell for his Rising Empire, and a Redguard uprising was considered one of the greatest threats to the Septim Empire for centuries after. Later, in the 4th Era, as part of the White-Gold Concordat to end the Great War between the Vestigial Third Empire and the Aldmeri Dominion, the Empire ceded vast tracks of land in Hammerfell to the Dominion. The Redguards refused to abandon the land and declared independence from the Empire. Despite standing completely on their own, the Redguards of Hammerfell successfully repulsed the Dominion. Now, they are considered one of the only groups who could stand up to another full-blown Dominion assault.
To a lesser extent, the orcs also embody this trope. Since for obvious reasons they didn't want to make the Redguards seem brutish or unintelligent, they shifted many of the more unfortunate aspects of the scary black man to the Orsimer, also a proud warrior race but unlike the Redguards get penalties to intelligence and charisma and are discriminated against despite significant military contributions to the empire and a long tradition of craftsmanship and artistry. Racially they may be green-skinned, but culturally they are much closer to the popular image of black people than the Redguards, whose culture is much more Middle Eastern than African American.

Mr. Sandman from the Punch-Out!! series, especially in his Wii rendition, which has been compared to the Incredible Hulk. He levels up in scariness in Title Defense mode where he gets pissed off at Little Mac for basking in the glory of his fans and the camera zooms in on Sandman's face. Also occurs in the in between round segments where he says something like "Did you brush your teeth, Little Mac? It's bed time!" and having a close-up of his scary face. Finally, in the cinematic before his Title Defense Fight, he punches down a gym to the ground JUST because there was a poster of Little Mac on the side wall! He PUNCHED a building ONCE with his BARE FISTS, and it fell TO THE GROUND! Even Hulk would be envious!

The 1963 film Shock Corridor features an insane black KKK member who is both this and a very early example of the "black white supremacist" idea later popularized by The Chappelle Show. In case you missed it, suffice to say that anti-black rhetoric somehow sounds even more terrifying when it's coming from a Scary Black Man.

The second Tattooed Man, a Green Lantern villain, is a huge black ex-Marine (and a member of the Geoff Johns Awesomely Revamped Villains Club). Unlike the previous bearer of the powers, this Tattooed Man knows how to use his powers to maximum effect.
Interestingly, the Justice League Unlimited Green Lantern, John Stewart, is also a huge black ex-Marine. He's only scary to bad guys. Though he did start as an Angry Black Man in the comics, and had some shades in the DC Animated Universe.

In Live and Let Die, Baron Samedi (especially scary as it is implied that he cannot be killed, even by Bond - he's the voodoo god of the dead, after all), Tee Hee (fella with the metal arm), Mr. Big and Dr. Kananga (main antagonists) and Adam, one of their henchmen, all fit this trope.

Panther Lily from Fairy Tail is a Scary Black Cat, towering over most members of the cast in both height and muscle in his Battle Form, wielding a BFS that can shift size to nearly four times bigger than the aforementioned Battle Form, and has one hell of a deep and intimidating voice even in Sleep-Mode Size. He's actually a pretty Nice Guy on his downtime, but when he was first introduced he was a commander in the military who wouldn't hesitate to kill and he's now partnered with Gajeel.

In the same series, Tales of Rebirth gives us two examples.:
Among the darker-furred characters are Eugene Gallardo, who looks big and strong enough to tear your face off without trying... and is actually the nicest and most considerate Team Dad you're ever going to meet, to the point that he even tries to comfort the girl who believes he murdered her father.
The second example is Tohma, who is very much an Evil Genius Manipulative Bastard who likes to fuck with people's heads for no other reason than because their despair makes him laugh. He forms a particularly horrible Salt and Pepper duo with his partner, the pasty-faced Saleh. Their interactions are pretty much the two of them trying to out-do each other in Moral Event Horizon crossing.

Young Justice:
Black Manta. He's masked, but he actually manages to achieve his goal when raiding Atlantis, later filling the spot of a disgraced Ocean Master in The Light. Like his comic counterpart, he's also a ruthlessly pragmatic mercenary who doesn't really have any lines he won't cross to finish the job, in addition to having a suit of powered armor that's positively bristling with extremely powerful and dangerous weaponry.
Not to mention Aqulad/Kaldur'ahm, who can be very, very intimidating when he wants to. Especially when he's pretending to be evil. He's also Black Manta's son, so it seems to run in the family.
Black Beetle from the same show is a scary black alien.

The Ellison Terminator on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was one of these. For somewhere around ten seconds or so. Of course, being confronted by your exact double asking "Are you you?" as it is about to Kill and Replace you is Nightmare Fuel alone.
Queeg, the Terminator who commanded a submarine became pretty damn scary once he refused the humans' attempts to override his orders. His name (if not a Shout-Out to Queequeg in Moby-Dick) was possibly derived from Red Dwarf.

Suicide Squad: Bronze Tiger. One of the top five martial artists in The DCU, outdone maybe only by Lady Shiva and Cassandra Cain. When someone manages to beat the goddamn Batman fair and square in a pure hand-to-hand battle, they ain't nothin' to fuck with. And, for that matter, neither is his boss, hardass bureaucrat Amanda Waller, one of the very few people Batman and Lex Luthor have long since learned not to annoy lightly.

Epic Rap Battles of History:
Darth Vader is referred to as black by Adolf Hitler. While the ERB version of the character is a bit too Laughably Evil to be truly scary, he still committed all the same atrocities as his canon counterpart.
Mr. T is, as usual, supposed to be this, though he comes off more as a Large Ham.
Shaka Zulu, as in real life. Although his brutality and ruthlessness are downplayed in the ERB version of the character, he's still disturbingly cheerful as he talks about his opponent getting betrayed and stabbed and his troops dismembered.

Warhammer 40,000 features the Salamanders, a Space Marine chapter from a Death World with high UV levels, whose already dark skin eventually turns pitch black (accompanied by glowing red eyes) due to a quirk of the Marines' genetic enhancement. Their armies are famed and feared for their expertise with flamers, melta weapons, and thunder hammers, as well as the masterwork quality of their wargear in general. And ultimately the Salamanders are a subversion of this trope and a rare example of unquestionable heroism in 40k's setting of Black-and-Gray Morality - during the Third War for Armageddon a Salamanders commander nearly started a feud with another company of Space Marines after striking their officer for ordering a bombardment on a refugee camp under Ork attack, and while other chapters sought glory on the battlefield, the Salamanders also lent their technical expertise to repairing Armageddon's infrastructure, saving uncountable civilian lives.

Bad News Brown a.k.a. Bad News Allen. Real name Allen Coage, 1976 Olympic bronze medalist in judo, generally considered one of the most legitimate badasses in pro wrestling history...the best story about him involves the time his friend and fellow badass The Dynamite Kid got jumped by the Rougeau Brothers backstage at a WWF event in the '80s...after jumping Dynamite with brass knuckles, Bad News saw what was happening and came after them...with a 2-on-1 advantage and brass knuckles, they were terrified to mix it up with Bad News and ran away...

Espelho/Fernando in Vampiros do Rio Douro is an African slave that, alongside five Portuguese men and a Spaniard, made a Deal with the Devil to become a vampire. While he can be very fearsome due to his imposing stature, red eyes, and sharp fangs, he does have a softer side being a Reluctant Monster or feeling bad about kidnapping Eliana to be Inverno's bride.

A non-human example from Warhammer would be the Black Orcs. The Chaos Dwarfs wanted a Slave Race that could do their fighting for them, and so created a strain of Orcs that were stronger, smarter, and more patient and focused than the average greenskin. This naturally Went Horribly Right and the Black Orcs Turned Against Their Masters. In the Orc and Goblin army lists, Black Orcs are the Soldiers to the normal greenskin Warriors, superior units who are able to quell lesser Orcs' infighting and rowdiness with a stern glare. Black Orc warlords are unsurprisingly some of the most fearsome generals in the setting.

The Punisher:
Barracuda from Garth Ennis' The Punisher MAX series, a giant black war criminal who speaks entirely in gangster slang, and has swear words stenciled on his gold teeth.
This trope is played with in the one-shot, "The Cell" (also written by Ennis). Frank has just entered prison when the corrupt guard points "Squeak" out to him (named so because he doesn't use lubricant), a SBM and "the toughest guy in Rykers" and mentions how he'll soon be "paying Frank a visit". Cue Frank just grabbing the guard's baton and breaking it over Squeak's skull, killing him.

WWE wrestler Mark Henry is a few inches shorter and 100 lbs lighter than Frazier, but, at 6'1", 380 lbs, he's still a whole lot of Scary Black Man, and is certainly more effective at the role. Not to mention he's the World's Strongest Man and is well aware of that fact.note This isn't just a matter of kayfabe either; Henry legitimately won the Arnold Strongman Classic in 2002 (some of the powerlifting records he set in that competition still stand 15 years later) and this was the source of his gimmick. If he ever comes back from an injury, turns face, or turns heel, you better stay the hell out of his way for a while. The latest and greatest example of this has been his "Hall of Pain" monster heel push in late 2011, where he dominated several other big men, (kayfabe) broken their legs, tossed anyone of smaller status and stature around like rag dolls, effortlessly kicked out of Starship Pain, and even beat Randy Orton clean TWICE for the World Heavyweight title. Some would say he's WWE's best-booked heel in years.
How about Vengeance 2011, when this almost-40-year-old absolute mountain of a man became the second person ever, first in eight years, to superplex The Big Show and IMPLODE THE RING!?

The Wire has a number of scary black men - Wee Bey, Chris, and Marlo are the first to spring to mind.
One character who witnesses a murder describes the man as big and black with a big gun. The cops then say BNBG which means "Big Negro, Big Gun."
He happens to be referring to Omar Little, who is so scary that some drug dealers throw their stash to him as he takes a smoke outside, while unarmed and wearing pajamas.
There are a multitude of other examples, but Brother Muzone, an intelligent, soft-spoken contract killer who invents his own bullets and calmly faces down multiple gangsters comes to mind.

Survival of the Fittest has a few examples from versions one and three, most notably Marcus Roddy, Darnell Butler, and Bobby Jacks. Marcus Roddy and Darnell Butler are made slightly less scary by the fact they're Gentle Giants, but Bobby Jacks is a professional boxer who has few qualms about playing the game to win, Marcus is one of the biggest students on the island during version one, and Darnell happens to be his school's most skilled fighter on top of being a star athlete, and strong enough that he is said to have once picked up a 6'11", 300-pound player on an opposing football team and slammed him to the ground.

Jiao from Tales of Xillia. He's massive compared to everyone else in the cast and wields a similarly gigantic hammer in battle. He's not really a bad guy, though (At least not anymore), and is easily the most calm and level-headed out of the Chimeriad members.
In Tales of Xillia 2, an alternate version of him really emphasizes the "scary" part.

Averted by Dr. Joshua Strongbear Sweet from Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire. He's more of a Gentle Giant and Badass Bookworm, as he is the only one who enthusiastically takes to the exotic Atlantian food and utensils.

Rory Breaker from Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels is an unconventional variant. He's a Yardie who dresses stylishly, loves an Umbrella Drink, and enjoys murdering people who interfere with his main pleasures in life. He's also five foot nine, considerably smaller than most of his massive bodyguards, and not a normal height for most candidates on this list, but this doesn't affect his willingness to be the first on the scene for a murderous shoot-out. And just listen to his Tranquil Fury when threatening Nick the Greek for information on who stole his cannabis:

In the 2009 version of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, the trope is subverted when a female hostage asks a black man if he has a plan to fight their abductors. The annoyed man asks if she is asking because he's black, but she explains that she saw he was wearing a ring that marks him as a veteran of the elite US Airborne paratroopers.

Subverted in Hajime no Ippo, where rookie boxer Jason Ozma has the perfect Scary Black Man looks... but a cheery and sweet Gentle Giant outside the ring. Hilariously lampshaded when they meet face to face: Ippo, Humble Hero that he is, is terrified at the prospect... and Ozma smiles widely before cheerfully speaking to him, leaving Ippo all dumbfounded.
The only debatable thing about Brian Hawk's applicability, meanwhile, is whether he counts as 'black'.

Dragon Age II shows all the kossith you meet (both Qunari and Tal-Vashoth) as being a silvery-grey color, perhaps to lessen the Unfortunate Implications or perhaps to make a Visual Pun on the Grey-and-Gray Morality of the world (or perhaps Black-and-Gray Morality, though who is black and who is grey likely depends on your personal viewpoint).

Some Toku shows in the '70s and '80s such as Warrior of Love Rainbowman and Denshi Sentai Denziman had Scary Black Men as villains. In Rainbowman's case, the first Scary Black Man is drugged and made to fight the title hero. He speaks perfect Japanese before he is drugged, then afterward he does nothing but grunt. The drug wears off and he is vaporized much to the horror of Takeshi Yamato/Rainbowman.

Firefly:
Bounty Hunter Jubal Early in "Objects in Space". He's actually quite slightly built but makes up for it with the scary.
There's also the Operative, who is a very chilling and calm kind of scary; and Shepherd Book, whom Zoe refers to as "the scary preacher" in Better Days when he beheads a killer attack robot with a single swing of a sword.
Zoe is usually not called upon to be the Heavy (Jayne needs to earn his keep, after all), but she is perfectly capable of cowing even Jayne with a raised eyebrow and a deadpan comment.

From Breaking Bad:
Gus Fring. It's best seen when his "charitable Los Pollos Hermanos CEO and Albuquerque philanthropist" façade is dropped, like when he cuts Victor's throat in front of Walt, Jesse, and Mike to send a message or when he threatens to have Hank killed.
In seasons 4 and 5, Huell Babineaux, Saul's new bodyguard. Played with in that given his rotund figure, bizarrely-shaped head, frequent bathroom trips, and general apathy to the insanity is going on around him, he's often more comical than intimidating.

Buffyverse:
Charles Gunn. The leader of a Vampire-killing street gang, who turns into someone even his Vampire boss considers "The Big Guy", though most of the time he's friendly and loveable.
Principal Wood was this as well. (The Buffyverse is enough of a World of Badass that any black character is likely to be open to this interpretation.) He was introduced in such a way as to make him seem to Buffy (and the audience) as if he were a scary enemy in league with the Big Bad who is operating under the Hellmouth this year. Then, his real agenda is revealed and he turns out to be a highly skilled vampire fighter much like Gunn on the spinoff. But even so, the idea that he was an enemy was a Double Subversion in that he really does have it in for one member of Buffy's team, namely, he considers Spike his sworn enemy and tries to kill him.
DoppelGunn, who is the Conduit to the Senior Partners in Gunn's form.

Averted with Valve's zombie shooter, Left 4 Dead, in which the only black character is the least assuming of the lot, being a soft-spoken, white-collar whose only fame was a fanon-based love for pills... at least prior to the Sacrifice Comic, where he killed an Infected that assaulted him in the loo using a toilet paper holder. The others are, for comparison, a tall and burly Badass Biker thug, an old man who is a Retired Badass on account of being a War vet, and a female college student who has the advantage of being Genre Savvy. Left 4 Dead 2 plays it straight with Coach, the fat black guy who's often seen in artwork with a chainsaw, even though his disposition is very level-headed and kind.

In Tales of Xillia 2, an alternate version of him really emphasizes the "scary" part.

Devil Ray from Justice League Unlimited could qualify; while he is never shown unmasked, he is voiced by Michael Beach, and he is a replacement for Black Manta, who couldn't be used due to a then-present Aquaman-related character embargo, and who also happens to be this trope in his own right. As for Devil Ray, he's actually WORSE than Black Manta, who is despicable in his own right. Easily one of the most disgusting characters on the show, he's a sadistic, bloodthirsty, remorseless mercenary who rarely kills his targets on the spot, instead preferring to let them suffer.

Worf, from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; beneath the fairly dark makeup is black Michael Dorn.
Many of the Klingons, as well.
Sisko is usually rather calm but when he wants to he can get extremely scary; hell, even WORF is afraid of him.
