** From ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', there's the Thieves Guild, which is definitely shady, but has elements of GentlemanThief and JustLikeRobinHood, and the Cammona Tong, a xenophobic Dunmer nationalist crime syndicate that despises the Empire and has absolutely no code of honor.
** Also from ''Morrowind'', there's the Morag Tong, an underhanded, though {{noble|Demon}} assassinís guild, and the Dark Brotherhood, an organization of murderous scumbags who will kill anyone if the price is right, or just to appease their "god".
** Necromancers in Tamriel have always been portrayed in a "dark grey" light. The Order of the Black Worm from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', however, show just how evil and depraved they can be if they want to. It doesn't help that the Order's leader is an OmnicidalManiac.
** The [[BlandNameProduct Blackwood mercenaries]] in ''Oblivion'' become evil counterpart to the Fighter's Guild.
** The ''Dragonborn'' expansion to ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' reveals that the Dragonborn has one in the ''First'' Dragonborn, an undead [[ReligionOfEvil Dragon-Priest]] who once ruled over Solstheim and now seeks to return to life.
** Also in ''Skyrim'', the Thieves Guild have somewhat become this to the Dark Brotherhood, maintaining their traditional mutually beneficial working relationship and sharing information on prospective jobs with each other, with the understanding that they'll not try to kill people during robberies, if the Dark Brotherhood don't rob people during assassinations.

** From ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', there's Throughout the series, at least for the average denizens of Tamriel, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]] are seen as this toward the [[SaintlyChurch Aedric Divines]]. Anyone who worships a Daedric Prince is typically [[ReligionOfEvil seen as evil]], or at the very least, as [[ScaryAmoralReligion dangerous lunatics]]. Ultimately played with significantly, as the Daedra are not inherently evil (and the Aedra are not inherently good), and even within the different cultures of Tamriel, some are seen as good to certain groups that are seen as evil by others.

*** Likewise with the Morag Tong and the Dark Brotherhood. Both are [[MurderInc assassin's guilds]], but the Morag Tong is government sanctioned within Morrowind and its members are honorable {{Professional Killer}}s. The Brotherhood is a fully criminal offshoot of
the Morag Tong, an underhanded, though {{noble|Demon}} assassinís guild, popular elsewhere in the Empire, who are much closer to [[PsychoForHire Psychos For Hire]] and worship Sithis, a borderline GodOfEvil.

*** Subverted with Cloud Strife and Rufus Shinra. Cloud ends up becoming the leader of AVALANCHE just a little after Rufus ends up taking over the Shinra Corporation, both because of Sephiroth's murder of President Shinra. Rufus and Cloud have similar colouring and facial features, as well as similar mannerisms; both are stylish, rude, self-important showoffs with strategic minds. They have a dual on the roof of the Shinra Building in which Cloud is unable to kill Rufus, and suggests to the others that they'll have to fight again. [[AbortedArc At that point, the focus shifts to Cloud and Sephiroth as rivals]]; Cloud and Rufus remain as similar personality types on opposite sides, but their relationship is never futher explored.

** Also, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword's'' [[spoiler:Ghirahim]] as [[spoiler:[[BiggerBad Demise]]'s]] sword to [[ExpositionFairy Fi]] as Link's sword. His persona was carefully crafted to be Fi's polar opposite. Fi is fairly emotionless and speaks in [[IfMyCalculationsAreCorrect percentages.]] [[spoiler:Ghirahim]] is [[LargeHam flamboyant to the extreme]], and very open and dramatic. Once his true form is revealed, his text boxes look similar to Fi's, albeit black. [[spoiler:Demise's]] weapon even looks like a dark version of the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Master Sword]]- even down to an upside-down Triforce on the blade.

* Your main power in ''AfterBurner Climax'' is the Climax Mode LimitBreak that allows you to launch {{Macross Missile Massacre}}s. In late-game you run into enemy planes who can launch {{Macross Missile Massacre}}s too. And since ItsUpToYou... Well, thank goodness for MercyInvincibility is all.

** Later on, Nintendo gave Luigi his own Evil Counterpart in the form of [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Waluigi}} Waluigi]].
** Wario got one himself in ''VideoGame/WarioLandShakeIt''. The Shake King was essentially a bigger, greedier Wario, with most of his abilities mirroring those of Wario. This is assuming he can be called an Evil Counterpart; [[VillainProtagonist Wario isn't exactly a good guy to begin with]].
*** It's interesting to note that the prefix 'wa, originated from the word "warui" means plenty of things, including "evil" in Japanese. Hence, Wario and Waluigi are, literally, "Bad Mario" and "Bad Luigi". However, their names can also mean, based on the meanings for the word "Warui", " Wrong Mario/Luigi", "Poor Mario/Luigi", "Hateful Mario/Luigi", "Abominable Mario/Luigi", "Wrong Mario/Luigi" or "Inferior Mario/Luigi".
*** Furthermore, Waluigi´s name in Japanese is an anagram to the word "Ijiwaru". Which means his name has extra meanings such as "Ill-tempered Luigi" or "Sadistic Luigi".
** ''Bowser'' gets one in VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory when the Dark Star becomes Dark Bowser, the final boss. Bowser has evolved into one to Mario as well--similar fire powers, similar stomping abilities, their powerups have numerous parallels...

** The Mandibuzz line is this to the Braviary line--the latter consists of AlwaysMale [[NobleBirdOfPrey warrior eagles]] who are said to be powerful and honorable fighters, while the former consists of AlwaysFemale [[ScavengersAreScum vultures]] with an appetite for bones, including human ones (in fact, Vullaby, Mandibuzz's baby form, wears a ''human skull'' as a ''diaper''). To drive the point home, the Mandibuzz line is outfitted with the [[CombatPragmatist Dark-type]], meaning that they fight dirty.
