** ''Theatre/TheTamingOfTheShrew'': [[OverprotectiveDad Baptista Minola.]]
** ''Theatre/TitusAndronicus'': [[CardCarryingVillain Aaron the Moor.]]
** ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'': [[FeudingFamilies The heads of the Montague and Capulet families]], though Tybalt is the most antagonistic.
** ''Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice'': [[GreedyJew Shylock]] [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation or Antonio and Portia.]]
** ''Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing'': [[BastardBastard Don John.]]
** ''Theatre/TwelfthNight'': [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Malvolio.]]
** ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'': [[EvilUncle Claudius.]]
** ''Theatre/{{Othello}}'': [[ManipulativeBastard Iago.]]
** ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'': [[VillainProtagonist Macbeth.]]

Theatre sections, sirs.



* ''Literature/TheBible'':
** The Pharaoh in the ''Literature/BookOfExodus'', enslaving the Israelites and doing everything he can to defy the will of God, even after accepting defeat.
** [[EvilChancellor Haman]] in the ''Literature/BookOfEsther'', who tries to convince the Persian Emperor to wipe out the Jews.
** {{Satan}} in the ''Literature/BookOfJob'' and the ''Literature/BookOfRevelation''. In the former, Satan attempts to get Job to denounce his faith and strips away all his fortune from him. In the latter, Satan (as the dragon with seven crowns) corrupts the world with the Whore of Babylon, attempts to get people to worship the Beast from the sea, is revealed to be the Serpent from [[Literature/BookOfGenesis Genesis]] and ultimately, battles the armies of Heaven until he is thrown into the Lake of Fire.
** [[CorruptChurch The Pharisees]] in Literature/TheFourGospels, who try to challenge Jesus at every turn and are the only people who Jesus gets mad at throughout his travels. Notably averted with {{Satan}}, who [[GreaterScopeVillain is a background character with minimal involvement in the plot]].
