* In ''VideoGame/ThetaVsPi7'' King Pi comes across this way, acknowledging that he thinks of Theta more as a friend than an enemy. Even during combat he constantly smiles. [[spoiler: In the end, itís unclear if he was really just affable all along.]]

* The various {{Mega Corp}}s in ''Videogame/{{Starcrawlers}}'' at least [[SlaveToPR have to put up a friendly face]], though some of them, such as Agrigen or Chimera Biopharma, are genuinely nice and friendly folks. The former loves everyone and promotes peace and serenity, while still peddling food bars that contain incredibly addictive ingredients. The latter are polite and businesslike, but they'll also lie through their teeth about whether they ''actually'' delivered their medicines, and they'll let entire planets die of plague if they don't pay for their medication.

** In ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'', he is described as "a romanticist, a feminist, and a self-proclaimed gentleman", but also as possessing a mania that often obscures this side of his nature.

* The Temple of Shadows from ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'' hold poker night every Friday and left the instructions for their special torture device nice and visible next to it.
** Reaver from ''Fable II'' and ''III'' also qualifies. He's a hedonistic DepravedBisexual who achieved immortality [[ImmortalityImmorality through some very unpleasant means]] and is out purely to serve his own interests. But he's also so incredibly {{Camp}} you can't help but like him. And he's voiced by Creator/StephenFry.

* Charnel, the [[GodOfEvil God of Strife, Slaughter and Death]], in ''VideoGame/{{Sacrifice}}''. Not only is he GenreSavvy about his status as the Bad Guy of the universe, but he's also completely open and honest about it. Charnel will at times support you even when you are opposing him, as a particularly inspiring bit of butchery (even if directed against him) is good to him, and his generally polite and blasé demeanour appears completely genuine. The only thing that gets his goat is the actual BigBad, Marduk, [[EvilVersusOblivion because he's trying to destroy a world so full of strife slaughter and death]] and Charnel can't have that.

* Multiple characters in ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' can actually fulfill this trope.
** [[spoiler: Ace]]
*** Like some of the other characters, he actually seems friendly, helpful, though a bit terrified [[spoiler: which is mostly a farce, since he literally created the whole setting and knows exactly how the traps work, how to get where and how the "game" works.]] Ironically, [[spoiler: he is one of the few characters that is almost never suspected to be bad by the other characters.]]
*** [[spoiler: As the inventor of the original Nonary Game, he was making eight kids risk their lifes in dangerous puzzles for his own selfish purposes.]]
*** [[spoiler: He encourages his collegue "The ninth man" to enter one of the traps after conveying that it is fake - which it wasn't - to see, if he is in the dangerous or harmless version of the Nonary Game. He also does it to ensure that his collegue will not tell about him, but also to gain his bracelet "9".]]
*** He is responsible for all deaths that are not persecuted by Zero or [[spoiler: Clover]]
** Zero can also count as belonging to this trope.
*** While he is the obvious evil guy throughout most of the game, he is found to be [[spoiler: Akane/June, the literally most innocent-seeming character]].
*** It is regulary hinted that Zero belongs to this trope [[spoiler: since June enjoys to make 'jokes' about betraying or killing people with a innocent smile that makes Junpei uncomfortable most of the time]]. This is only taken over the top by the fact that [[spoiler: not even June is really Zero, but her 9-year-old self who had planned out all the traps, deaths and simliar]].
** [[spoiler: Santa]] can also count, even though he is [[spoiler: often a lot more rude and thus not entirely perfect]], depending on the choices the player makes. What still qualifies him is that he [[spoiler: threatens to kill multiple characters with a gun in the Coffin Ending]] and that [[spoiler: he ALSO is part of Zero, thus responsible for all the things that happen]].
** Finally, one could count [[spoiler: Clover]] as being Affably Evil, mostly because she [[spoiler: literally kills everyone in the Axe Ending]], but it still remains questionable, since she [[spoiler: only does so because she goes insane with the death of her brother]].

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' has Alvin, who has an even worse case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder than most of the other [[RecurringElement traitors in the "Tales of" series]]. Despite this, his friendliness to the party is usually genuine and he's only working for Exodus [[spoiler:to take care of his sick mother. After he nearly kills Leia and has a HeelRealization, he slowly tries to redeem himself.]]

** From ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands2}}'' and "VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', we have Nisha Kadam, who is an NPC in the former game and a playable character in the latter. Sure, she falls in love with [[{{Jerkass}} Handsome]] [[BigBad Jack]] and becomes his girlfriend, is incredibly rude and surly to most people, has no problem murdering puppies and hangs people for the most ridiculous reasons, but she's polite to you and Brick, [[NervesOfSteel isn't mad at all]] when you declare war on the whole town, compliments your fighting skills, considers you a WorthyOpponent and, for a character who's a sadistic trigger-happy psychopath, forms a strong friendship with [[NiceGirl Janey Springs]], of all people.

** PirateGirl Captain Scarlett from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' DLC has killed children (although she considers bragging about it to be distasteful) and has a case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, but she is also friendly, awkward, and a GracefulLoser who holds no ill will over her defeat.

* [[BiggerBad Demise]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''. Despite being the Zelda universe's equivalent of {{Satan}} and is bent on dominating the world and shaping it his will, is surprisingly polite (especially compared to his [[TheDragon Dragon]] [[SmugSnake Ghirahim]]), and actually shows [[TheHero Link]] respect for not being afraid of him and though he does vow [[DyingCurse A Plague On Both Your Houses]], he does at least compliment Link for managing to beat him.
