* In ''VideoGame/EquestriaBound'', while a lot of the are jerks in the show, much like Giygas in [[VideoGame/EarthBound the original game]], Nightmare Moon is able to influence beings from the past to do her bidding, all of whom have a grudge against Equestria or the mane caste for some reason. [[spoiler: Some examples being Trixie and Gilda.]]

** While Jack Ryder count be a jackass, it was usally as part of a feint for his actions as ComicBook/TheCreeper. Here, he's a legitimately self-serving and egoistical asshole.

* The video game adaption of the ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' gamebook ''Deathtrap Dungeon'' has this with Baron Sukumvit. The original wasnt exactly a saint, but was portrayed more as an opportunistic noble and a fair ruler, while the video game version has him as the BigBad, and a tyrant, and has more in common with his villainous brother Lord Cairn from the sequel book Trial Of Champions.
* Axonn in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Heroes'' appears as a brute henchman for the Piraka and is the boss of his level. In the official story, he is actually the mightiest ''helper'' of the main characters on the island of Voya Nui, and periodically wipes the floor with the Piraka. Then again, the game threw out practically all of the canon elements in exchange for a better gameplay.

** Much like in ''Film/BatmanReturns'', the Penguin was shown to be quite psychotic, sadistic, and brutal. This version lacks the AffablyEvil and WickedCultured traits of the comics' gentleman of crime, and has displayed misogyny, homophobia, and abelism.

** ComicBook/{{Elektra}}. Many folks, particularly those whose exposure to her came from [[Film/{{Daredevil}} a couple of]] [[Film/{{Elektra}} critically panned films]] and ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance'', were shocked to see her as an enemy in-game. Especially since these days [[{{Thunderbolts}} she's rolling with a bunch of (morally ambiguous) good guys]].

* [[AllThereInTheManual Supplementy materials]] for ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' shows the alternate universe Wonder Woman was already veering into [[HeWhoFightsMonsters She Who Fights Monsters]] territory even before assisting the alternate Superman in taking over the world. In the game proper, she's a BloodKnight, something which horrifies the mainstream Wonder Woman.

** The alternate Comicbook/{{Sinestro}} is also a good deal eviler than his mainstream counterpart, and with Wondy functions as a devilish voice in Superman's ear to push him further past the MoralEventHorizon. Perhaps most strikingly, his viewing of the Earth Lanterns as {{Worthy Opponent}}s is completely omitted from this version; he gruesomely kills both Kyle and John personally, then [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates]] Hal into murdering Guy.

** She's even considered evil enough that she appears in ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone2'' as an enemy.

** More like Adaptational Antagonismbut while most incarnations of the Riddler are fairly narcissistic, they are, at the least, humble enough to respect Batman as a WorthyOpponent and are on good terms with the rest of Gotham's villains. This Riddler, by contrast, is a smug, egotistic, patronizing, arrogant, and thoroughly obnoxious {{Jerkass}} who is either ignored or outright belittled by Batman and some of the other villains.

** Yveltal is portrayed as a major villain in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon]]'', at one point turning TheHero to stone. [[spoiler: However, its evil actions were committed [[BrainwashedAndCrazy under Dark Matter's control]] rather than Yveltal's own will, and it does ultimately redeem itself once it gains control back.]]
