Indicator as in crosswords/wordplays. Starting with container(ear>part>fearsome), homophones(b>bee), deletion(behead,heartless,endless,finish off), anagram(trap>part>chunk), anagram(destroy>new), charades(join may be), letter sequences(even,odd), acrostic(start,end*). Also, I am not entirely sure but, two non letter could be &lit clues with ! > &!. And double def's hardly use indicators. The title was a hint I took.

The letter E?

Pointing the right direction!

East or 'E' is generally shown to the right side of the map.

I can bury a part in fearsome.

Part buried in fearsome is 'EAR'

Can make the second letter fly, which is awesome.

Can turn 'B' into a 'BEE'

I may be even, I may be odd, Or just the one who tells you the way.

'E' tells you the way when it refers to East.

Or I may be just the start or the end, or may be just a say.

Start- 'ENTRY', or End- 'EXIT'

• Not anywhere close. But you found the some good things. – Techidiot Apr 3 '17 at 12:39

I assume we are looking for a word that has a B as a second letter. I tried:

absinthe

And that works quiet well for just "I may be even, I may be odd, Or just the one who tells you the way."

As percentage differs from 55-75% and this drink makes you quiet drunk, hallucinating..."

However, (and this is not the answer OP means!) another option is:

(honey)bee?

I can bury a part in fearsome.

Many people are afraid of you.

Can make the second letter fly, which is awesome.

You are the second letter in the alphabet, a B. And you can fly.

I can behead, but I ain't no killer.

Can finish off anything, but I ain't no murderer.

Worker bees looking for nectar which is used as a source of water.

I may be even, I may be odd, Or just the one who tells you the way.

I play no role when the the things double up.
