* AllYourPowersCombined[=/=]ComboPlatterPowers[=/=]PowerParasite: Much like Rogue of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, he can steal powers with a touch. Unlike Rogue, his thefts are always permanent. He uses this ability to steal Adam's power, as well as all of Peter's accumulated powers up to that point, giving him: DreamingOfThingsToCome, {{Flight}}, FromASingleCell, IntangibleMan, {{Invisibility}}, MindOverMatter, PlayingWithFire, ShockAndAwe, SuperStrength, TeleportersAndTransporters, TimeMaster and WalkingWasteland.

Rene.
* PowerNullifier
PowerNullifier: The Haitian has a constantly-active ability to dampen or completely negate the powers of anyone within a certain distance of himself, akin to telepathic static. This ability deactivates if the Haitian is unconscious or if he selects specific individuals to allow the use of their abilities in his presence. His ability is not insurmountable; various characters have overcome it with great effort and the Haitian can exhaust himself from concentrating to suppress unusually strong abilities.
* ScaryBlackManScaryBlackMan: May be a subversion given that he is actually a fairly decent guy... it's just that he has the bad tendency of taking orders from all the wrong people. Though as all of them have been white and he's been shown as being a good man when NOT following orders from them.

[[folder: Angela Petrelli]]
!!'''Angela Petrelli (Cristine Rose)'''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AngelaPetrelli_6976.jpg]]
-->'''Ability: [[DreamingOfThingsToCome Precognitive Dreaming]]'''

The mother of Peter and Nathan Petrelli, revealed to be one of the 12 leaders of the [[AncientConspiracy Company]]. A ruthless pragmatist who was highly involved in Linderman's plan to make the world a better place, even if it meant killing off 0.07% of the human population. Has the superpower of precognitive dreams, which was the first superpower her son Peter absorbed. Is also extremely adept at manipulating people to do what she wants. As of Volume Three and Four, while she isn't exactly a good guy, it's harder to call her a straight-up villain.

!!!Associated Tropes:
* AntiHero: See NominalHero
* BatmanGambit
* BigGood: In Volume 3. And in ''[[spoiler: Heroes Reborn]]''.
* TheCassandra: Averted. Her visions and dreams are considered serious and valuable insights, although she has been wrong on occasion.
* ConsummateLiar: She managed to keep such major secrets such as superpowers, ancient conspiracies, unknown family members, and multiple homicides from her sons for years even after one of them acquired powers like mind reading. She also totally crushes Danko when he questions her trying to get dirt on her other son / his boss.
* CrypticConversation: Whatever "Pandora's Box" was.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Angela has the ability to see the future while dreaming. She also seems able to appear in other people's dreams, as she used this aspect of her power to wake Sylar and get him save Peter, even while she was trapped in her own mind.
* EvilMatriarch: All her actions have shady motivations and she's not above using her children if the end justified the means (even considering killing one son at one point).
** In light of the events of V3, however, it's difficult to figure out if Angela was always such a Cold Hard Bitch, or became one after she found out that her husband had been mind-controlling her for years, mind-raping her into going along with the aforementioned (narrowly averted) OffingTheOffspring.
* EvilOldFolks: Sometimes.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor
* HumiliationConga: The start of Volume Two, where she's apparently hit financial tough times after her plan to destroy New York went bust. She got better after assuming control of The Company after Bob's untimely Sylarfication, though.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo
* KickTheDog: Many, many times.
* KnightTemplar: She justifies all kinds of evilness by saying that its for the greater good or to save the world.
* LoveMakesYouEvil
* LukeIAmYourFather: She revealed herself to be Sylar's mother, [[ParentalSubstitute but was lying]].
* MamaBear: She poisons her husband to stop him from killing Nathan. But also subverted in Volume 2 when Peter is being manipulated by Adam, she tells Matt [[IDidWhatIHadToDo to put a bullet in Peter's brain if he has to.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Sylar all but tells her that he is in awe of her level of manipulation and lying and even he would love to aspire to that level of evil.
* MeaningfulName: This may be a coincidence, but Mama Petrelli shares her first name with the actress who plays Raymond Shaw's mother in ''Film/TheManchurianCandidate''. You know, the mother who [[spoiler:is willing to sacrifice her son and let him become a killer in order to get another male relative elected president, so that through him she and her shadowy syndicate can take over the U.S. government under the pretext of hunting down undesirables, even though she and her friends are in fact members of said undesirable groups themselves.]] Sound familiar?
* NominalHero: Angela cares about protecting herself and her erratically heroic sons more than anything else. For anything short of saving the world, getting her help will likely involve more evil than you're trying to stop.
* ParentalSubstitute: [[spoiler:She keeps trying to adopt Sylar, with [[ReplacementGoldfish mixed results]].]]
* PowerHair: She has this to go along with her painfully perfect cutthroat high society aide. It really shouldn't come as a surprise when it turns out she's the EvilMatriarch and in league with Linderman to destroy New York.
** In later seasons the actress's hair got longer, and she started arranging it in a very tight updo which creates an even more power-y effect. The comparison became obvious in a flashback to pre-season 1 before Arthur's apparent death.

[[folder: Elle Bishop]]
!!'''Elle Bishop (Creator/KristenBell)'''
[[quoteright:253:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ElleBishopHeroes_8807.png]]
-->'''Ability: [[ShockAndAwe Electric Manipulation]]'''

A young, self-described sociopathic thrill killer and agent of the [[AncientConspiracy Company]] with the ability to generate lethal bolts of electricity from her hands. She's the daughter of Bob Bishop, the new leader of the AncientConspiracy following the death of Mr. Linderman. At the end of Volume Two, she starts showing doubts about her path in life after Mr. Bennet reveals to her that her screwed-up personality is largely due to painful experiments conducted on her by her father throughout her entire childhood, and ends the Volume saving Mohinder, Molly, and Maya from Sylar, for which they call her a "hero".

After her father is murdered by Sylar at the beginning of Volume Three, Elle is fired from The Company and spends some time searching for a purpose in life (even briefly teaming up and bonding with Claire over their mutual PowerIncontinence) before finally falling back into bad habits alongside the other supervillains over at Pinehearst Industries. Has a PetTheDog moment when its revealed that she indulged in a pie eating/soul saving session with proto-serial killer Gabriel Gray and then later does an EvilIsSexy turn when she gets it on with Sylar. Beforehand she gives him advice: do what ''he'' wants for himself, [[spoiler:which ultimately leads to her getting Sylared.]]

!!!Associated Tropes:
* AntiHero: In season 3, she teams up with Sylar during one of his brushes of working against the villains, becoming a NominalHero who primarily cares about Sylar.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type II]]
* AxeCrazy: Brutal experimentation have left Elle mentally unstable and homicidal.
* BeastAndBeauty: The Beauty to Sylar's Beast. But also shows sides of Beast to Claire's Beauty.
* BigDamnVillains
* BreakTheCutie: The reason Elle is a sociopath is because her father decided to take his little girl and see just how much torture it would take to break her.
* BrokenBird: Especially her monologue in 2x08.
* CuteAndPsycho: A cute, childish, and sociopathic woman who delights in killing, hurting, and controlling people.
* DaddysLittleVillain
* DarkAndTroubledPast: When she first arrived at the company, Elle was just a normal girl; but then they started testing on her, that the human brain cannot handle the amounts of electricity they gave her. Elle says that her father would never allow such a thing, but Noah says that he was leading the charge.
* [[OedipusComplex Electra Complex]]: She does it all for daddy.
* ElectricTorture: Elle does this to pretty much everyone she meets, even those she likes, particularly Sandra Bennett and then Sylar - though, he literally asked for it.
** Noah turns the tables on her in season 2, when he straps her into a chair with her feet in a doggie bath, so that anytime she tries to shock him, she ends up zapping herself instead.
--->'''Noah:''' Stings like a bitch, doesn't it?
* ElementalPowers
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler:Elle is disgusted that the Company pushed Gabriel to kill again.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Claire. Elle was originally meant to be Meredith Gordon's daughter, and thus Claire's sister.
* FreudianExcuse: Most, if not all of her sociopathic tendencies were the result of her father [[AbusiveParents subjecting her to very painful experiments while she was very young]].
* HoneyTrap: Ordered under Company orders to get close to Gabriel[=/=]Sylar and find out about his powers. She ends up developing feelings for him, but when he discovered that she had been lying to him about abilities, he rejected her. Sylar was definitely not happy to see her show up in Mohinder's lab and stopping him from killing Mohinder.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Elle is 5'1" and Sylar is 6'2".
* LoveMartyr: [[spoiler:With Gabriel[=/=]Sylar [[StuffedIntoTheFridge ...and then he killed her]].]]
* NominalHero: In Season 3. See her AntiHero entry.
* PerkyFemaleMinion
* PintSizedPowerhouse: She's only about five feet tall.
* PsychoElectro: Once she started indulging in electric sadomasochism with imprisoned pretty-boy Peter, it was clear she wasn't exactly right in the head. It's implied to be the result of years of being a test subject who's been denied a normal childhood.
* PsychoForHire
* PsychopathicWomanchild: "He's not a toy, Elle."
* ShockAndAwe: Elle had the ability to generate electricity. She seemed to have excellent control over her ability, allowing her to generate electric arcs of varying intensity and target them precisely.
* TheSociopath: Elle says she has been diagnosed as a sociopath, and Peter aptly describes her as a {{Sadist}}.
* StupidEvil: [[ForTheEvulz ''I'm bored... I know, let's kill a rental car guy!'']]
* SweetTooth: She has a fondness for Slushos and pie and the comics depict her as being a lover of junk food.
* {{Tykebomb}}: Raised/tortured/experimented on by the Company from an early age
* WellDoneSonGuy: A rare female version.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds

PsychicPowers: Like his son, Maury is a telepath; however, his powers are much more developed than Matt's.

LotusEaterMachine: He was able to trap people in nightmarish visions that drew off the victim's own thoughts and memories.
