* ''{{Exalted}}'' has the Deathlords, ghosts of powerful First Age Solars -- pinnacles of super-human achievements -- who now serve the [[GreaterScopeVillain Neverborn]]. Arguably, the biggest and baddest of them all is the First and Forsaken Lion.

* In ''MagicTheGathering'', it was formerly Yawgmoth before he got wiped from existence. Now... it's a three-way BigBadEnsemble between [[FromASingleCell the remains]] of [[TheVirus Phyrexia]], [[SealedEvilInACan the Eldrazi]], and [[TheChessmaster Nicol Bolas]].

* ''TechInfantry'' has a variety of Big Bads, from The Bugs, to Rashid King, to Modred. Ultimately, the biggest bad of all is the CrapsackWorld nature of the universe itself.

* [[SpiritOfTheCentury Dr. Methusala.]] This guy is so much more powerful than any other character that the book suggests you treat him as an event, rather than go into straight up conflict with him.

*** Perhaps the least powerful, but most iconic (to the point that he made it onto the cover of the Fourth Edition setting book), Big Bad of the setting is the Lord of Blades, a renegade warforged who seeks to subjugate living beings to his kind (and possibly [[AGodAmI become a god in the process]]). He was designed as an antagonist in the vein of traditional [[SuperVillain supervillains]] and is frequently compared among fans to Doctor Doom and/or {{Magneto}}.

** ''Second Darkness'' has Allevrah Azinrae, drow matron of House Azinrae, and the mind behind the plot to cause a second Earthfall.
** ''Legacy of Fire'' has the genie Jhavul, whose plan to fuse with Xotani the Fire-bleeder is the cause of all the story's events.
** ''Council of Thieves'' has tiefling nobleman Eccardian Drovenge, who aims to take over Westcrown for himself.
** ''Kingmaker'' has Nyrissa the mad nymph, who uses every other villain of the Adventure Path for her own ends.
** ''Skull & Shackles'' has Admiral Druvalia Thrune, whose plan to take over the Shackles is responsible for everything the players subsequently go through.
** ''Reign of Winter'' has Queen Elvanna, whose imprisonment of her mother, Baba Yaga, and triggering of the eternal winter spell, are the focus of the plot.
** ''Wrath of the Righteous'' has the demon lord Deskari.

** Tharizdun could be seen as the BiggerBad, because as of 4th Edition he is responsible for the current evilness of all of the above villains except Vecna, and in ''Demonomicon'' it is explicitly stated that the shard of evil he [[spoiler: created the Abyss with]] gave him a huge power boost. Since he was already a god this makes him the most powerful being in the setting, strong enough that the level cap of 30 isn't high enough for the characters to fight him.

* The Setting of TabletopGame/TheDarkEye offers two independent ones, which one is prealent depends mostly on where in the timeline you are. In the start and after the Third Demon Battle the Bog Bad is the Nameless God, in between he [[PutOnABus almost gets forgotten]] and in steps Borbarad, a demigod mage.

* In general, in any cooperative game without a traitor, the game itself is the metaphysical BigBad.
