* ''{{Red vs Blue}}'' has [[spoiler: Agent Washington]] who is only after the Blood Gulch crew to take Epsilon back to the Chairman so he doesn't have to go to prison. Adding to this, the only reason he has to get Epsilon in the first place is because Caboose didn't turn Epsilon in like [[spoiler: Wash]] told him to.

* [[DrHorriblesSingAlongBlog Dr. Horrible]]. He claims to be a WellIntentionedExtremist but is really an IneffectualSympatheticVillain who's in the whole evil business because of constant humiliations from JerkJock superheroes like Captain Hammer and unrequited affection for a girl he met at the laundromat. The story follows his transition from AntiVillain to full-blown {{Supervillain}}.

* Vincent Liedecker of ''TheDescendants'', philanthropist, life saver, and sponsor the [[SuperheroSchool hero team's school]] -- the only one around that doesn't seem to be about brainwashing or supersoldier projects. He sends his thugs to ''protect'' the establishments he takes protection money from, even from threats that he didn't create or provide the weapons for. Er...so he is into protection rackets and the underground economy, and producing {{Magitek}} and cloning horrible monsters that Should Not Be, and then selling them to the highest bidder...

** [[http://furyofsolace.com/2009/01/31/hello-world/ Fury Of Solace]], originally created for the ELE application contest [[hottip:*:he didn't make it onto the DVD despite a fantastic song, probably because [[spoiler: he really isn't evil]]]]. His VillainSong [[hottip:*:linked above]] details how [[spoiler: he had to kill a young girl's parents (and, implied by extension, become her nemesis) so she'll become a superhero and save the world]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' the main characters are a group of supervillain called the Undersides, but they have good intentions ([[TokenEvilTeammate except for Regent]]). Skitter is a supervillain because she couldn't betray her friends and because of {{Jerkass}} superheroes, and constantly tries to protect people, Tattletale is also one for protecting people, Grue got the job so that he could look after his little sister Imp and Bitch can't empathise with humans but genuinely loves dogs and supervillainy funds her shelter. They also serve as ALighterShadeOfBlack [[EvilVersusEvil against the truely evil]], and stop about as many villains as the heroes. [[spoiler: But it's part of a plan to take over the city!]]

* There are plenty in the WhateleyUniverse. Dr. Diabolik is responsible for the deaths of thousands, all in his campaign to improve the human race. Brigand is a wanted supervillain who is actually trying to track down the monsters who corrupted his father. Jobe Wilkins is a HeroicSociopath who thinks nothing of testing serums on unwilling criminals if it provides a new cure for dysentery.

* In ''{{Survival of the Fittest}}'', the closest things to villains ''per se'' are those who choose to play the game. While sometimes these people are [[CompleteMonster downright evil]] or [[AxCrazy simply terrifyingly insane]], there are killers who actually aren't very bad people, often given a sympathetic reason for playing the game such as trying to protect a loved one or because they've given up all hope of escape and see it as the only way to survive ([[JustifiedTrope and as far as they know, it is]]). Examples of this include Bobby Jacks, [[strike:Lenny Priestly]] (not...anymore), Bryan Calvert, to an extent, and, arguably, Jacob Starr.
