"I already have the data I needed after I adapted to the weapon's blast. However, I've also discovered that your magic gun is a source of tremendous power. If I harness that power, I could annihilate organic life in every universe, every parallel! Leaving only the machines."
— Mechakara, Atop the Fourth Wall

Whether you're making whimsical fan videos or your own dramatic series, out on the new media wave, there's no limits on how bad you can make a character.

  • Survival of the Fittest:
    • Cody Jenson starts out as simply a perverted, arrogant asshole. Then he gets hit with a tire iron, and his mind breaks down. Then he brutally rapes Madelaine Shirohara, kills her, and accidentally shoots Adam's girlfriend. And those are just his first two kills. Adam Dodd gets his revenge and Cody gets his comeuppance at the end of Version 1, when he kills Cody with a katana and carves the word "Rapist" into his stomach. Walter Smith from version two was an example of a badly written Complete Monster, as he came off as pointlessly evil for no real reason; part of this was due to a character whose plotline he was supposed to be a part of not making it into the game, but he was still written poorly and inactively, contributing to his status as an Anticlimax Boss fairly early into the game.
    • Some like to put Danya in this category, what with the whole "kidnapping high school students and forcing them to do horrible things to each other because he hates the US for some reason" thing. And if that weren't enough, he makes snide and sadistic remarks about the students involved, with one snippet of his dialogue making fun of how Adam was raped and left for dead by Angelina Kaige. This is made all the worse by his status as a Karma Houdini.
    • Let's see, committing horrendous acts? Check. Played completely seriously? Check. No justification for his actions? Check. Showing no remorse, and enjoying it? Check. No chance of redemption? That's Maxwell Lombardi in a nutshell, folks.
    • There is absolutely nothing sympathetic about Ashlie Jackson of the Mini site spinoff Evolution, who started out as a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing before getting abducted and assigned a power, and, from the minute she arrived on the island, she had absolutely no problems with killing. One of the best examples is how, when blood appears on her clothes, indicating that she had just killed a person with Invisibility without realizing it, her first thought was that it was that easy, and the second was to worry about the blood on her clothes.
  • Fear, Loathing and Gumbo on the Campaign Trail '72: The world in general in this Alternate History story has become a major Crapsack World, but some dictators outshine all others in heinousness.
    • The Lesser Mao is Mao Zedong's successor as dictator of the Chinese People's Republic. He manages to be even worse than his predecessor, turning all of China into a horrifying hybrid of post-Cold War North Korea and Khmer Rouge-era Cambodia, with totalitarianism ramped up to eleven and the country turned into a giant death camp and killing field. When the military rebels against him for his regime's excesses, he destroys the rebel-controlled city of Kwangsi with a nuclear missile. Later, he creates a virulent strain of influenza that kills the better part of a million people worldwide, none more so than in China itself, creating the worst health year since the Spanish Flu.
    • General Magnus Malan of South Africa makes the Apartheid system even worse until it is effectively a Neo-Nazi state except in name, nominally supported by the United States for its anti-Communist hysteria. His regime is actively waging a losing war in the rest of Southern Africa, committing constant massacres against African natives and using chemical weapons and dirty bombs against their enemies. When their fascist state eventually collapses, he arranges to wipe out most of the continent with South Africa's nuclear arsenal.
    • President Donald Rumsfeld is a dictator who doesn't care about his own people's well being Since taking office, Rumsfeld has destroyed all forms of "welfare" and any regulations on business, causing the poor immense suffering and the workers extreme hardship (and borderline enslavement), along with wanton destruction of the environment. He imprisons or murders critics of his regime on a regular basis, used massive voter fraud and other illegal actions to win the 1984 election, and directly supports the regime of the aforementioned Magnus Malan's, along with other right-wing regimes like Israel and Chile, with military and economic assistance. Rumsfeld supports terrorism in Northern Ireland simply because the UK voted for a Labor government. Rumsfeld later crossed the Moral Event Horizon when "Liberty Legion" officers were ordered to kill soldiers wounded on the battlefield in order to save the costs of caring for them. He's also trying to weaponize AIDS and exploited the aforementioned flu outbreak to spread anti-Chinese racism and get more votes in the election. Finally, he also invaded Cuba in order to distract Americans from their domestic problems, rather than to remove a dictator or help the Cuban people.
  • In Book III of Tasakeru, an exiled wolf named Ares is introduced as being one of these: a completely unrepentant rapist. He gets worse. The title of Book III is Soulsnatcher, to give you an idea of how much worse. He quickly adds mass-murder and screwing with the process of life and death to his repertoire.
  • Camilla The Series: Baron Vordenberg from Season 2 is an elderly Austrian baron who is a member of the Silas Board of Directors. When he is first introduced, he seems to be a kind and friendly man, despite his apparent disdain for vampires. Once Laura gets him voted as the Chairman of the Board, he immediately shows his true colors by ordering a detainment of all vampires and anything supernatural in Silas University. He has some of the students, including Laura's friend Danny (whom he lies that he will stop after arresting Carmilla and Mattie), recruited into his militia , and preaches anti-vampire propaganda. It is discovered that, despite the potential consequences, he intends to kill Lophiiformes, all to make a name for himself. After killing Lophiiformes, he intends to execute Carmilla and Mattie, along with any students protecting vampires; the attempted arrest indirectly leads to Mattie's death. After almost callously shooting one of his men, Laura starts a resistance against him. In the battle, he has Theo betray them and kill Danny. The next day, he has the other board members shot over the announcements and prepares to execute Carmilla in front of Laura's webcam, taunting them all the while.
  • Imperium Nova doesn't have many of these, but Patrice Rey Barte of Gemini managed to earn the title by orchestrating an orbital bombardment of the planet Dnoces 13 that can killed over a billion people because he was bored.
  • Marrissa from Adam Cadre's Dark Marrissa. Among other things, she beams down half of a baby to punish its parents for suggesting that she take a moment to reconsider committing genocide on a planet for launching a scientific probe at the ship.
  • Alexia from The Return who uses Mind Rape as a recruitment tool, turning unwilling humans into her compliant, loving daughter Succubi, and then gleefully abuses, discards, and uses them as Cannon Fodder; after all, it doesn't matter if they die - she can always make more. Of the villains so far, she might not have been the biggest, but certainly the scariest due to her ability and willingness to strike at our heroes' sense of identity and security. She also caused the most pain and suffering and was considered appalling even by the standards of other demons.
  • The Whateley Universe:
    • Emil Hammond, a modern-day Josef Mengele who likes to perform horrific experiments on kidnapped mutant children—and believes himself justified because, to him, they're not even human.
    • Deathlist, a psychopathic, Nigh Invulnerable cyborg who gets off on widespread carnage and considers the world to owe him a debt of pain. The most horrific thing he's done so far was to kidnap a mutant superheroine, jam a power-neutralizing device into her skull, then hack off her arms and legs and give her to his troops as a sex toy. Then, when she died after more than a month of torture and rape, he impaled her corpse on a pole with a message to one of her former team-mates carved into her chest. Not even his Freudian Excuse (namely, that his parents tried to kill him by crushing him in a garbage compactor) nets him any sympathy after that. The really horrifying part: that message to a former teammate? It was a thank you note, for allowing him to do that. Moral Event Horizon for said "hero" right there.
    • Hekate, a wizardess supervillain-in-training, whose rap sheet includes using a spell to enslave two of her classmates for a year, during which they were repeatedly raped and otherwise abused while being completely aware of what was happening but powerless to stop it, as well as the fact that the athamé she used in the spell was empowered by the ritual sacrifice of two young children. Not only that, but during a magical battle with Fey (after trying and failing to ensnare her in the same enslavement spell mentioned earlier), she summons a trio of iron elementals using the promise of dozens of future sacrifices. To top all that off, she used her athamé to stab Jade in the heart beforehand, just to torment Fey.
    • Four: Overclock, who plans to trap super-regenerator in a holographic sim, drive her insane, cause her to accidentally kill someone and maybe blow up her friends too, all so she'll end up in the prison known as ARC Red Complex until she dies...which, since she's a super-regenerator, might be forever. Why? She ate up all of his favorite cereal one morning, before he got any.
  • Twp'atwt from Protectors of the Plot Continuum. Easily the most sociopathic Guard, he was also the one who began murdering the prisoners when the DIS was defeated, and he loved to make people hurt. Word of God is that his name was an acronym for "The Wrong Place At The Wrong Time", which was certainly his modus operandi. His maiming and later Karmic Death at the hands of Blue Photon are two of several CMOAs in the series.
    • Many of the DIS in general were portrayed as Complete Monsters, particularly the Bracket Fungus' Dragon, Nendil Morifëa, an old follower of the Sons of Fëanor whose name was even Elvish for "Black soul". The Bracket Fungus himself would count, if not for the fact he doesn't directly act often enough to qualify; the only time he's shown taking things into his own hands is during one of the final battles in the Crashing Down story.
  • Alastor from The Anti Cliche and Mary Sue Elimination Society can be counted as one. So he's a self-insert who was forgotten about a long time ago. Okay, sympathetic, understandable. What pushes him into the Complete Monster territory is his idea to combine all of the Universes together, absorbing all the inhabitants (I.E. EVERYONE), and using them all to kill his Author, only to revive him and kill him again and again and again, mind fucking him in the process.
  • Sola Soulhawk from The Insane Quest: single, red-haired young woman seeking man (or woman) for companionship. Enjoys long walks on the beach, salsa, genocide, destroying worlds, murdering your closest friends, laughing at how weak you are, and Cold-Blooded Torture. Call now!
  • Look to the West: General Lascelles seems to have formed the Bavarian Germanic Republic just so he can genocide the population for being inferior to the Latin race (according to Evil-Steampunk-Revolutionary-France's ethnic hierarchy). Eventually, and ironically, he is killed by the leaders of La Résistance. Why is this ironic? Because both the resistance leaders are descended from real-world ancestors of Adolf Hitler. Also, they may or may not have eaten him.
  • Thankfully, the Global Guardians PBEM Universe only has a few of these...things.
    • The Blood Red King (the Anthropomorphic Personification of Terror), who, on a lark, once invaded the maternity ward of a Belgian hospital and suffocated all the babies whose name began with an "odd-numbered" letter (A = 1, C = 3, and so on). He once forced a crusading televangelist to rape, strangle, and dismember his own teenage daughter during a live television broadcast because he didn't like the man's hair. And the less said about what he did when he took over the Figlie Della Carita' di San Vincenzo De Paoli, a convent in Rome, the better.
    • Tom Foolery. When he was first introduced, the players took him to be the usual gadget-wielding psychotic clown. But then they discover his "Peanut Gallery" (inhabited by the badly embalmed corpses of over a dozen children he'd abducted), a built-in "audience" for whom he was performing his "tricks".
    • Swarm is a mutant driven insane by the very thought of her powers (she can turn into a horde of cockroaches). She's lost any humanity that was in her back when she was "normal" and now is little more than a cannibal Serial Killer.
  • Atop the Fourth Wall suprisingly has some
    • Mechakara's a robot from an alternate dimension where Linkara's Robot Buddy Pollo turned evil and killed him and robots overthrew humanity. His plans solely revolve around sending our protagonist into a mental breakdown, and when that fails, he captures him and plans to kill him slowly, simply because his death went too fast the first time around. While that would normally make him just another killer robot, what shoots him over the top is how, after getting the magic MacGuffin that he came for, he decides instead to destroy all organic life in the multiverse. He's a cold heartless monster and the fact that he's returned is a signal he'll only get worse from here. It gets particularly bad in the Silent Hill Dead/Alive videos, where Mechakara slowly Mind Rapes Linkara into thinking he's the (actually long dead) man who tortured his daughter to create Linkara's Magic Gun.
    • The Magic Gun's parents can count. Seriously, they conceived and raised their daughter just so they could torture and kill her to create a weapon that could kill all who didn't believe in their God. No wonder the Gun killed them.
  • Malachite from the TGWTG 3-year anniversary movie Suburban Knights definitely qualifies for this. He wants to destroy all of the world's current technology and will kill anyone who disagrees with him and/or gets in his way. And what makes him truly frightening is that none of his villainy is played for laughs, except for the part where he gets a phone call; he's the only character in the whole movie that's played completely serious. Any humor in his scenes come from the awkward reactions of his soon-to be murder victims. He also holds the site's record for highest on-screen body count out of all of the villains.
  • Neopets has a surprising amount:
  • Red vs. Blue has these two repugnant assholes:
    • The CEO of Charon Industries, Malcom Hargrove, aka the Chairman, is one of the biggest villains in the series, and among its most evil. Even before his villain reveal, his investigation on the Director of Project Freelancer goes too far when he releases Agent Washington, who had no hesitation to kill the Reds and Blues at that point, and the Meta, a known criminal who killed Freelancers for their equipment and A.I.s, from prison to hunt down Epsilon, who was currently in possession of the Blue Team. He finds alien artifacts on a planet known as Chorus, so in order to collect them, he hires a group of Space Pirates to kill everyone on the planet by manipulating them into a Civil War. He sends ships containing cargo for the mercinaries to use to the planet, where the mercs kill everyone on the ship and steal the cargo for their own use. When the mission is in jeopardy, he threatens to kill his two lead mercs Locus and Felix by sending a new agent to finish the job. When he is exposed, he decides to kill everyone. Motivated by greed and spite, Hargrove barely masked it with a polite facade.
    • Felix, one of the Co-Dragons to the aforementioned character, is just as bad. When he fought in the Great War, he never showed any mercy to his enemies, even those that were trying to surrender. When one of his teammates, Locus, was broken by the war, Felix kept him from getting help and dragged him along because he knew that he couldn't survive without his partner, despite hating him. When he was hired by his boss to create a Civil War on the planet Chorus, the mercenary took his job too far by infiltrating one the sides because he thought it would be fun for them to trust him while not knowing that he was leading them to their deaths while mocking them for trusting him. He also leads the raid on prison ship where the entire crew is killed and the prisoners who are not worthy to join forces with him ejected from the ship. When word comes out about the Purge, He is unable to resist being the one to personally kill off everyone, showing that he doesn't care about the orders and more about just killing for the hell of it, going as far as to sacrifice his own men just to kill everyone else. When the Purge temple is destroyed, Felix goes after the Reds and Blues just so he can kill them. A sadistic monster to the very end, Felix took pleasure in killing and was one of the most depraved enemies the Reds and Blues ever faced.
  • RWBY has various villains but these two stand out as the most depraved of them.
    • Cinder Fall is the Big Bad of the Beacon Arc (Volume 1-3) and one of the Co-Dragons of Salem who desires to be feared and powerful above all else. Recruited by Salem, Cinder finds and takes the two young crooks Emerald and Mercury under her wing and attacked the Fall Maiden Amber, stealing half of her power and forcing Adam Taurus and the White Fang into working for her as well as having the notorious criminal Roman Torchwick steal from Dust shops to accelerate their plans. Cinder then breaks into the CCTS to steal data for the Vtyal Tournament then manipulates the events there and has Emerald create illusions to make Yang looked like she broke Mercury's leg out of aggression to eliminate her team, and worst of all make Pyrrha accidentally kill Penny and expose her as a robot and delivers a breaking speech to break panic and fear across Vale to attract the Grimm. Cinder then breaks into Beacon and steals the rest of the Fall Maiden's power and battles with Ozpin, destroying his vessel and summons a Grimm Dragon to spread even more Grimm as well as brutally kills Pyrrha by shooting an arrow through her chest and incinerating her. After being severly damaged by Ruby's Silver Eyes power, Cinder spends Volume 4 as a pathetic shell of her former self only to return in Volume 5 as far more cruel and vindictive. She forces Raven into a deal to use the Spring Maiden Vernal to open Haven's vault and when Jaune calls her out for her evil, Cinder's only reply is "Who are you again?". Cinder then tries to murder Jaune and mock him over his weakness and Pyrrha's death, but when she sees attacking him directly won't work, fatally wounds Weiss to simply put her death on his conscience as well. Cinder then double-crosses Raven and kills and tries to take Vernal's power for herself, only to be defeated and frozen by the real Spring Maiden, Raven. A cruel, sadistic and power-hungry sociopath, Cinder is willing to leave entire kingdoms in despair and destruction in her quest for power.
    • The aforementioned Adam Taurus is a member of the Faunus protest turned terrorist group called the White Fang who attack and rob humans to be seen as equals. Once Blake's Love Interest, Adam and his forces is hired by Cinder as muscle to assist them in stealing weapons and resources then on the Vytal tournament, sends his forces and Grimm into Vale to cause chaos and destruction. Adam then finds Blake again and curbstomps her in a fight and promises to destroy everything she loves, then goads Yang into attacking him by stabbing Blake through the stomach, only to cut off Yang's arm and attempts to decapitate Blake after she rescues her. In Volume 5, he returns and tries to convert his boss Sienna Khan to his way only for her to refuse, in which he coldly kills her and takes her position as High Leader of the White Fang, sitting in her throne with a smug look on his face, disgusting Hazel. Adam then has Corsac and Fennec mount an attack on the Belladonna family to try and fame humans for their deaths, then when cornered and outnumbered at Haven Academy, spitefully tries to detonate the explosives he placed there, willing to kill everyone including his own forces simply to have the last laugh but is foiled by the police and Faunus of Menagerie. He then flees like a coward and becomes more depraved and insane as he slaughters the White Fang members objecting to his rule after he returns to HQ. He then returns in Volume 6 to hunt down and kill Blake for 'ruining his lives' and also tries to kill Yang when she intervenes. Despite trying to paint himself as a Well-Intentioned Extremist, Adam is nothing but a spiteful and sadistic monster who wishes to make Blake and humanity suffer simply for his own twisted ideals.
  • Mecha Sonic in Super Mario Bros Z qualifies to a "T". As soon as he came into being (via Metal Sonic absorbing past models into himself), he destroys the Death Egg and forces it to crash-land on Mobius, causing an apocalypse. He then, while hunting down the Chaos Emeralds, also took the opportunity to kill Sonic's friends in extremely brutal ways (Tails by strangling him, Amy by beating her up, Knuckles by beating him up and then filling him up with machine-gun processed lead, and Cream and Cheese by apparently blowing her head off), and had wiped out most, if not all, of the planet's population and turned almost half of it into a burning wasteland. He was also the reason for Shadow's current personality, because he murdered Rouge and Omega, the only people he could call his friends. As soon as he arrived at the Mushroom Kingdom to recover the Chaos Emeralds, he also killed a Goomba who found a Chaos Emerald simply because he didn't give it to him, even though there was absolutely no way he could have known that was a Chaos Emerald. He then mercilessly beats up Yoshi to gain his chaos emerald (and says that he would have killed Yoshi anyways even if he did comply to his request). He later brutally killed both the Koopa Bros and the Axem Rangers X and destroyed Yoshi's Island. Not just scouring the surface, but hitting the island with a Frieza-style Sphere of Destruction so violent that it vaporised the entire island. This is one of his nicer moments.
  • Bowser, of all people, gets hit with this trope in Mario Plush Forever. He first kidnaps Yoshi, since he holds the cure for the fart curse, so that he could cure himself before anyone else can. While this alone does not qualify him, it's also implied that he plans some pretty sadistic things in order to find said cure, and his reaction to his Koopa assistant telling him that he's better off giving the Yoshi to the Mario brothers is to gruesomely burn him alive for his insolence. And he only gets worse after he (accidentally) eats a poisoned Ghost Mushroom, causing him to transform into Giga Bowser. He proceeds to go on a violent rampage through the Mushroom Kingdom, endangering countless lives in the process. And during the final battle, he happily sends most of his own troops to their deaths, completely uncaring that they stand no chance against Mario and co., and effortlessly slaughters a huge chunk of their friends with his fire breath and plasma beams, even when they start fleeing for their lives. He then gloats to everyone that he truly cannot be stopped, even going so far as to say that he's most powerful being in the universe, only for Karma to put him in his place when Master Hand and Crazy Hand destroy him for his hubris. An uncaring sociopath devoid of any of his canon self's redeeming qualities, this Bowser is nothing more than an unfettered monster whose remorselessly destructive actions threatened everyone and everything in his path.
  • Donald Duck in Dondel Dok is not the short tempered but wacky duck from the Mickey Mouse gang. Instead, he is a deep voiced pedophile and depraved homosexual. Concerned with how Louie lacks a love interest, Donald decides to become Louie's mother to handle his feelings and while it starts off creepy and weird, only gets worse. Besides giving Louie a kiss that may or may not prove that he's actually some Lovecraftian monster, Donald forces Louie to try and drink from his nipple, but when it fails he instead forces his nephew to perform oral sex (In the SFW edit, Donald instead defecates onto his hand and shoves feces down Louie's throat, saying it's chocolate) , traumatizing the poor boy. He runs Louie a bath and when he is too scared to wash himself, Donald climbs into the tub and washes him by hand, coldly asking him if he has been a good mother.
  • Goofy in Goofy's Trial by FilthyFrank is re-imagined as a child murderer and psychopath. Goofy in this audio skit massacres an elementary school, killing 27 children and crippling 5 of them, and was arrested and put on trial for his crime. During the trial, Goofy constantly laughs and giggles with delight, and while his lawyer tries to convince the judge he is clinically insane, Goofy admits that he is consciously aware of his actions and states to his lawyer that he would gladly murder more. While he also says that the 'demons' told him to kill the children, Goofy still is responsible for his own actions and while the skit is a dark comedy, none of Goofy's actions are in the slightest.
  • Captain Planet serves as the Villain Protagonist of Funny Or Die's Don Cheadle is Captain Planet series and is a stark contrast to his canon counterpart. The Planeteers summon Captain Planet to stop villains from cutting down trees in the rainforest, to which he humorously turns them into trees. However, Captain Planet turns every person within the country into a tree, horrifying the Planeteers and doing so with a gleeful smile on his face. When Kwame tries to stop him, Captain Planet turns him into a tree and threatens the other Planeteers, stating only to summon him again when they're ready for pain. Captain Planet travels the world, heartlessly turning most life into trees and has also turned most of the Planeteers except for Ma-Ti as well, taking her power rings that contain their souls as well and turning the broken-hearted Ma-Ti into his slave. Captain Planet then attacks an environmental group who has turned against him and when Ma-Ti tries to rebel, saying that he may take everything from him but not his heart, Captain Planet tears out Ma-Ti's heart, turning it into fruit and eating it. Captain Planet succeed in turning the planet completely green, wiping out all of humanity but is ultimately killed by woodpeckers who reverse his powers. While he is more or less a Well-Intentioned Extremist in this series, Captain Planet crosses the line however due to single-handedly committing genocide and becoming too power-mad to even care or regret his actions.
  • Russian dictator Gridenkov from the Chaos Timeline and many of his followers. At the end, when the Germans start to nuke his country, he goes completely off his rocker and sacrifices prisoners to Chernobog. At least, that's what some people say.
  • In Eclipse, Freiherr Eighinn Stossuhl is a brutish, Trigger Happy thug who firmly believes that Might Makes Right. In his first appearance, he threatens to attack a neutrally-aligned country (Cessair) if they failed to turn in the main character. When the main character actually leaves peacefully, Stossuhl attacks Cessair anyway, in a war that cost the lives of 86,492 people and eradicated Cessair's entire infrastructure. When he gets hit by a sniper, Stossuhl responds by destroying an entire building; he admitted that the sniper probably wasn't there anyway. He incinerates an entire platoon of his own soldiers when they took too much time to get through a maze. When an injured soldier grabbed his ankle, Stossuhl destroyed his entire upper torso because he was stopped from sprinting. When another soldier offers to patch him up after a fight, Stossuhl pushed his skull into his torso because "Real men never disarm themselves." When an informant reveals that all of his targets had escaped, Stossuhl immediately chokes the informant to death, while still demanding to know where they went. He proceeds to order the eradication of Cessair, and when his colleagues called him out on it, Stossuhl continues the shelling out of spite. At a public speech, Stossuhl attempted to divert his culpability in the invasion by claiming his colleagues supported it (when they didn't). Finally, Stossuhl publicly executed close to a hundred Cessair prisoners (and his own bodyguards) by unleashing a stream of magma that morphed them into a mesh of dry, organic rock.
  • This is what Lenore the Cute Little Dead Girl would've become if she had not died. In a comic, she said she wanted to take over the world; she also seems to take delight in peoples' unfortunate lives. It is also hinted that she fakes idiocy to torment Ragamuffin. She also often brutally murders Mr. Gosh [1], even though she has good reason to do this to him. And given what she did to an ugly woman in A Walk in the City, this just comes out as pure villainy. But, due to her being the titular character of the series, she most likely avoids falling into this trope.
  • In the fan movie The Legend of Zelda the Sage of Darkness, we have Davik, Link's uncle and also the titular villain. He seems to train Link in the ways of the Hero, only he's really attempting to feed Link hatred and anger in order to speed up Ganon's revival, even supplying him with the White Sword, one of Ganon's artifacts. He's also manipulating Ertegun for his own agenda, and it is also hinted that he also plans on betraying Ganon as part of his agenda as well. He also brutally murdered Link's parents as well as poisoned his own sister. The reason? None whatsoever, aside from possibly trying to get Link to go down the road of hatred even more. And his real plan is to extinguish the Cycle of Eternity, which may result in the destruction of the entire world, for no reason besides hating it for unspecified reasons. He's also a psychopath.
  • Bart Reynolds (Yes, Burt Reynolds the real life actor) from the Shut Up! Cartoons series Teleporting Fat Guy. Once the apprentice of Sheng Woo, who is actually Mario's brother Luigi, Bart became obsessed with his master's invention the Power Glove and betrayed him to use its power to conquer the universe, only to be defeated and have the glove taken from him. He infiltrates the protagonist Robbie's birthday party to retrieve the Power Glove and kills Robbie's father and kidnaps his love interest Rachel. Bart then enlists various mustache clad villains and actors to alter time and cause chaos across the time-stream, and even kills his general Hitler after saying his mustache was better than his. After failing to change American history and being defeated by Robbie, Bart has his son Kurt befriend Robbie and manipulate him into making more changes in time to create a tear in reality that could lead to the end of the universe, and has Leonardo Da Vinci build Robbie's father (who came back as a poop in a jar) a robot body to destroy his computer and kill Robbie to prevent them from fixing it, and even kills Leonardo afterwards despite promising to pay him. On prom night, it's revealed that Rachel is actually Bart's daughter and was manipulating Robbie the entire time they knew each other, to which she summons her father and kills Kurt for failing him, then Bart personally cuts off Robbie's arm and sends him through time. After conquering the moon (which the town the series is set in was placed on due to changes in time), Bart at first uses an army of dinosaurs to attack and conquer Earth, then sets a trap for Robbie using his father and attempts to kill him and his own daughter when Robbie kidnaps her. Bart then tracks them down and murders his old master Sheng Woo after he saves the heroes' lives, then ties up Robbie and his friends and tries to kill them with a bomb that destroys the Earth. Bart then plans to construct a giant mustache and put it on the sun to recognize his conquest of the solar system, despite such an act meaning the end of said solar system. In the final battle with Robbie and the sun begins to swallow them up and the whole solar system due to his plans, Bart is fine with such an outcome so long as Robbie and everyone dies. While he is also quite comedic and hammy in some scenes, this fictional version of Burt Reynolds ultimately is nothing more than a vicious egotistical psychopath bent on conquering reality or even destroying it if he pleases.
  • From the other Zelda fan movie, The Hero of Time, Ganondorf is once again presented as a selfish, power-hungry tyrant without any care for anyone in the world but himself. His Establishing Character Moment in the first few minutes of the film show him killing Link's Mother in cold blood after she gave Link, who is still just a baby at the time, to the Kokiri in order to protect him from Ganon's wrath. He also manipulates Princess Zelda's father, the King of Hyrule for his own ends, before poisoning him and taking his Triforce of Power for his own. And when Link opens the Sacred Realm by claiming the Master Sword, Ganon spends the next seven years taking control of Hyrule and releasing the Demons of Element to the five corners of the kingdom to guard the Sages. He's also partially responsible for other atrocities such as the death of Malon, who had been killed by Ganon's soldiers during their raid on Lon Lon Ranch, earning Talon's undying hatred, as well as the extinction of the Gorons, leaving Prince Dariu the sole survivor so that he could serve as an example of those who disobey him. And that's not even mentioning him allowing the people of Hyrule, including children, to be constantly harassed by his soldiers. His treatment towards his own minions is no better, as he constantly threatens his right-hand man such as threatening to have his "glamorous head" staked on a pike outside his castle if he doesn't stay hidden in the shadows, and again near the end when he has him taken away to be executed for failure to stop Link and Sheik. Lastly, he has Sheik captured by his remaining soldiers to use as a hostage before going after Link himself for the final battle, and even after he was defeated and sealed in the sacred realm, the fight left Link severely weakened for one last onslaught from Ganon's soldiers to finish him off, meaning that he would have died horribly if not for Zelda revealing herself and sending him back in time to prevent Ganondorf's rise to power.
  • The Wolf Creek franchise has Michael "Mick" Taylor, an Australian serial killer, rapist, and torturer who preys upon tourists visiting the Wolf Creek area, falsely befriending them before taking them back to his home and slowly torturing them to death. He has killed several dozen people including a little girl. One of his favorite methods is "head on a stick", where he severs their spine to turn them into a human vegetable. At the end of the second film, he frames one of his victims for his crimes, leading to the ruination of the victim’s life. In the prequel novels Origin and Desolation Game, he killed his mother who loved him dearly and killed a dog to force feed it to its owner before killing him too. While being pursued by four other serial killers, Mick tied up his girlfriend Rose and used her as rape bait to lure the killers into a trap, and killed one named Jerry by gutting him and force-feeding him his own intestines. During the Vietnam War, he committed more atrocities, and continued raping, torturing, and killing when he returned home. In the TV miniseries, he murders Eve Thorogood's family, and spends the rest of the series trying to kill her. He captures her Love Interest and tortures him before making her stab and kill her love interest herself. In the second season, he murders a man who had been his friend for decades to eliminate someone who could connect him to his crimes, and targets a large tour group because the guide said Mick wouldn't make a good tour guide due to how politically incorrect he was.
  • William Shaw in Paperwalls. Just read the story.
  • Wesker from Resident Evil is as monstrous as ever during the current story arc of the Minecraft Forums version of We Are Our Avatars.
  • Venomstripe from Warrior Cats RPG is one of these, a sadistic cannibal who kills high positions for the hell of it and is quite possibly the poster child for Even Evil Has Standards - BloodClan, one of the most evil groups in the game, and SunClan, a vicious anti-Clan group, are the major cats after her.
  • From Arby 'n' the Chief, we have Psychopathic Manchild Adam. He's a rare example in the series in that he doesn't get played for laughs or just commit console attrocities. Scott was smoking too much pot to do anything truly malicious, Sky was an idiot, Trent at least tried to be polite to Arbiter most of the time, and most of Chaos Theosis range from Affably Evil (Duncan) to Faux Affably Evil (everyone else). Adam is frequently abusive to his mother, won't even ditch his console to see his dying grandmother, frags Claire, and generally seems to enjoy fragging (and perma-banning) players for no good reason. He's the Token Evil Teammate for an already morally ambiguous group, and they are disgusted to keep him on their group.
    • He treats his "friends" like crap too. He threatens to ban one of them and jokes about another one's dead mother.
    • Though it isn't part of Arby 'n' the Chief canon, Arby 'n' the Chief In L.A. had Mario of all people turned into this. He leads three other toys and treats them all awfully. He breaks Sonic's leg for playing Halo 3 and constantly spites his brother. He also later forces Arbiter to choose between having a place to stay or staying with Master Chief. After that, he locks Sonic in a cupboard and forces Toad to capture Arbiter and do the same. Finally, he tries to kill both Sonic and Arbiter by burning them alive.
  • The fairy Lily from Felarya really hates humans. Her excuse? A band of human adventurers captured her sister while she was out hunting, cut off her wings, then tortured and killed her in an unspeakably gruesome way. What makes it worse is that they made Lily watch the whole thing! Good thing she ate them later. Bastards.
    • It gets worse. Removing a fairy's wings robs them of their magic abilities, so Lily's sister was no threat at all to the adventurers, but they killed her anyway.
  • Red Dawn Plus 20 has many monsters, by virtue of being Dirty Communists...
    • The biggest and baddest of them all is the GRU's General Sergei Khvostov, aka "The Butcher of Clear Lake City." His offenses include...
      • He arrived at Johnson Space Center in Houston and found that NASA had managed to move everything (personnel, equipment, documentation) out of there before the invaders arrived, leaving only a mocking note "Catch us if you can." His response was to order the massacre of the families of NASA contractors, astronauts, and anyone else left behind in Clear Lake City.
      • Bathing a Cuban officer (one of his nation's allies) in battery acid when they got into an argument over a mistress.
      • Massacring the town of Freer, Texas in response to an assassination attempt (that's implied to have actually been carried out by other elements of the KGB who found his methods counterproductive).
      • Forcing the mayor of San Antonio to kill one of his staff, threatening to rape her and then kill her himself anyway if he didn't. (He complied).
    • General Gennady Bratchenko, the brother of the original film's Big Bad, dropped VX nerve gas and/or White Phosphorous ("Willy Pete") on Louisiana towns merely suspected of aiding La Résistance.
      • DNA Testing in-story reveals that, between 1965 and 1988, 4,000 "cold" rape cases turned out to have been committed by fourteen different PAC members.
  • The Questport Chronicles has the Master of Darkness, an insane wizard who aspires to plunge the entire world into darkness.
  • The Irate Gamer. He blew up a harmless alien mothership, destroyed Ubisoft's headquarters because he couldn't get into their E3 conference, slaughtered the Kool-Aid Man for being himself, and complains too much and copies from the AVGN.
  • Iron Rose, the sadistic dolphin from Cold Blood. Usually, when you see a dolphin as the villain, it's Played for Laughs or as a parody. Iron Rose, though, is played straight, as unfunny and unsympathetically as possible. He murders innocent sea creatures such as porpoises for humor, captures the human girl Natalie and plans to rape her and then drown her when he's done. As soon as the protagonist, Kevin, and his bird foster parents, Ebony and Phil, come in, he breaks Ebony's wing in front of Kevin and laughs as she moans in pain. Then he tries to kill Kevin in front of Ebony and almost succeeds. At first, it looks like he has a Freudian Excuse when, at the end, he's beached and he claims that he was abused as a calf. Kevin instantly feels sorry for him and gets him back into the water. However, as soon as he's done that, Iron Rose reveals that that was all a lie, that he's been killing things for years, and that he's even murdered his own mother. And then tries to kill Kevin after the latter saved his life! Is your Flipper filled childhood ruined yet?
  • Sweet Tooth from Holy Musical B@man. He gleefully murders people using various sorts of deadly candy (no, seriously, candy.), but doesn't become a Complete Monster until he reveals his final plan: he kidnaps Robin and sends a video message out to Batman, telling him that he has Robin and has started a Facebook poll asking Gotham to choose-either Robin dies or Sweet Tooth poisons the water supply. And if Batman tries saving Robin, he just poisons the water anyways. And he's never given any motivation, which means that this horrible Sadistic Choice and all his other crimes are most likely For the Evulz.
  • The Punisher fan film Dirty Laundry has the unnamed gang leader who savagely beats and rapes a prostitute who owes him money, then goes on to attempt to beat a little boy to death for refusing to run drugs for him and is implied to have done the same to a little girl in the past and broke the legs of a war vet who tried to stop him. Given how this is a Punisher flick (But as mentioned, a fanmade one), he thankfully gets a very satisfying death. he gets all his limbs broken by the Punisher in ways that cause the bones to stick out, gets doused in a bottle of Jack Daniels, then the prostitute he assaulted lights him on fire.
  • Unlike the Affably Evil and redeemable trickster he is in canon, the version of Discord in Hotdiggedydemon's Pony.MOV series is far more monstrous, being a Faux Affably Evil sadist. His first appearance shows him rampaging through Ponyville, proclaiming himself their god and demanding their virgins. His worst crimes during his onslaught are murdering Apple Bloom in cold blood by stomping on her right after she gains her Cutie Mark and biting off Princess Celestia's head after he's defeated and deposed her. He's later joined by Wolfor and R-Dash 5000, and they proceed to reduce Ponyville to ashes, destroying countless lives in the process. Through all this, Discord takes sadistic pleasure in the carnage he's inflicting, as shown by the deranged Slasher Smile he constantly wears. During his final battle with Titan! Rainbow Dash, he relished in gloating about burning the world of Equestria to her face before proceeding to slowly rip her wings off in the most painful and drawn out manner possible simply For the Evulz. While some of his scenes are Played for Laughs (such as his line towards the end "PONIES ARE FOR LITTLE GIRLS!!!!"), the nature and results of his actions, as well as the evilness of the character himself, are played completely seriously. Needless to say, his Karmic Death when Rainbow Dash decapitates him with the Titan's Sword feels very well deserved.
  • In Skellington's Revenge, the Black Hiver manages to be the only YouTube Poop example of this trope, his villainy being played completely seriously. When Jack Skellington summons this demon to help him take over Christmas, it gives him the power to trap the souls of those who oppose him in paintings. It then enacts it's plan by trapping SpongeBob, Patrick, RED Team, the Eds, and Fluttershy in its dimension just because they were celebrating Christmas. It then proceeds to kill them all in horrific ways (burning the Edd, Eddy, and the Spy before eating them; throwing a rock at Patrick, causing him to fall to his death) and turns the bodies of Scout, Soldier, and Fluttershy against everyone else. This culminates when Jack undergoes a Heel Face Turn, pissing off the Hiver, who proceeds to kill SpongeBob and try to kill Jack. As it is doing this, it admits that its goal of ravaging and dominating all the holiday realms is far beyond what Jack wanted, and that it was using Jack to achieve it. Thankfully once the Hiver is destroyed, all the horrors it committed come undone. Devoid of any comedy, the Black Hiver was a surprisingly dark and menacing villain for a YouTube Poop character.
  • The Sonic, Shadow and Silver Show has various continuities across many Youtubers who chose to create their own spin on the tale, and these guys stand out as heinous monsters.
    • Zombie Shadow may just be the darkest villain in 12gameschamp21's series. Resurrected by Mephiles with a spell book, the zombie version of Shadow strikes out on his own and proceeds to attack the real Shadow and his girlfriend Danie (Who is basically the hedgehog version of Maria) in which he plans to kill his counterpart and rape the latter. He is one of the first and only cases of a villain being outright killed, as the series is mostly lighthearted and comedic in nature. Zombie Shadow eclipses other villains in the series for having no Played for Laughs scenes and living and dying with nothing but disdain and hate from Shadow himself.
    • Arondight is a cursed sword that Shadow finds at a weapon store that begins to manipulate and control his mind. Sent by the Black Knight to the real world, Arondight tricks Shadow into being a pawn in his plans by brainwashing him into the knight Lancelot the Brave so he can revive his master using a Chaos Emerald and a sacrifice. Arondight has Shadow recruit Silver, Blaze and Knuckles to act as servants and has Shadow and Knuckles kidnap Danie to use as a sacrifice, in which Shadow tries to resist only to be forced to attack her by the cursed sword and made to break her heart out of spite. Via Shadow, Arondight summons the Black Knight into the real world and possesses Danie and prepares to spread chaos across the world and conquer it. It's revealed that Arondight is the spirit of the Black Knight himself and attempts to kill Danie without Shadow. While he is destroyed by Sonic and Caliburn, Arondight/Black Knight's influence led to Shadow being seen as a villain, losing his girlfriend and becoming so bitter he transform into a Werehog out of pure spite.
  • The Stupid Mario Brothers series and its spin-offs has these two examples.
    • Ganondorf Dragmire, or Ganon for short, is the Bigger Bad of the series who lacks any of the redeeming qualities the other villains do. Once the Gerudo King and Arch Nemesis of Link, Ganondorf seduced and corrupted Merlin's younger brother Nox Decious into becoming his servant, which leads to his and Merlin's conflict, the Darkness' creation and his other servant Bowser's attempt at killing the Mario Brothers as babies, succeeding in killing their parents, by causing their plane to crash making them orphans. Ganondorf resurrects Decious to conquer the real world, leading to the portals being closed and allowing Ganon and Bowser to attack the other worlds and recruit more villains to their side. He appears in Season 5 leading an army of ninjas and a cartel of villains to attack Mario and his allies, such villains include a resurrected Pauline who he uses to make Wario and Mona leave the battle through psychological warfare. Ganon also sealed away Link in the Dark Realm to stop him from defeating him and becomes so much of a threat that the Darkness, the once sadistic and malevolent entity that attempted to conquer the real world in the Movie, makes a Heel-Face Turn after being defeated by him. During his final battle with Mario, Ganon reveals that he killed Merlin against Nox Decious' wishes who wished to convert his brother to their side, giving his servant the petty excuse that he 'changed his mind'. which greatly angers Mario and tries to kill him so he can merge the real world with the Dark Realm to remake it and ruler over it as a god. A cruel and tyrannical psychopath, Ganondorf stood out as the darkest villain the original series had.
      • Ganon also serves as the Greater-Scope Villain of Stupid Mario World and Stupid Mario Brothers: Legacy as Wrathnar, the Big Bad of the aforementioned series and film, is his son and successor. However Stupid Mario Brothers: Legacy reveals that Wrathnar is actually the future son of Mario and Daisy from an alternate timeline. Ganon and Nox Decious traveled to the future and kidnapped Wrathnar as a child and brainwashed him into becoming his successor and a powerful warlord, leading to Wrathnar conquering and laying waste to Termina, using his own half-sister to try and kill an infant Mario, only to instead leave him in the Fallout universe to preserve the multiverse and recruit alternate versions of himself to destroy Mario and his friends, leading to Donkey Kong and Plumber Knight's deaths. In Wrathnar's final moments, it appears he finally comes to his senses, showing that deep down, Ganon was all along the true mastermind and villain of the entire series as a whole.
    • The Koopa - AKA The Darkness - is the Big Bad of The Plumber Knight Returns. Introducing himself as the leader of the terrorists known as the Goombas, the Koopa declares a takeover of Ferral City and manipulates the people through the mayor and his lackeys, threatening the kill anyone who disobeys his commands. The Koopa then claims to be the one who killed Mario's brother Luigi to get him out of retirement so he can fight and kill the hero himself. After his former right-hand betrays him, the Koopa has his Dragon Jeckal capture Mario's good friend John Gibbs and torture him to near-death, only to be rescued but die of heart failure due to his injuries. The Koopa then has the former mayor Carson kidnap Mario's friend Denise and hold her hostage to draw him out, in which the two fight, revealing he was the Darkness all along and not Luigi's killer. He reappears later after abandoning the Goombas ordering Dr. Horus to kill the new Commissioner Steve McGuiness, then after Mario encounters the Blue Hood mocks him by revealing Bowser Jr. killed Luigi and turned him into the cold ruthless Blue Hood as revenge for Mario killing Bowser. The Darkness then reappears after Mario snaps Luigi back to his senses to kill the younger brother to further spite Mario and is pursued after by Luigi Jr. when Mario is defeated, revealing he plans to use his ploy of domination to manipulate humanity into giving into madness and hatred and spread chaos and bloodshed across the world. A twisted and sadistic psychopath envious of human emotions and life itself, The Darkness/the Koopa is a far cry from other antagonists of the series And is lacks any of the noble and redeeming qualities he has in the main timeline.
