** Any admiral introduction pre-timeskip serves as one - Aokiji's first appearance not only showed characters the power of a Marine admiral, but also serves as the beginning of unusually dark Enies Lobby saga, and Kizaru was one of the reasons [[spoiler: crew got separated and Luffy was forced to fight alone on next several arcs]], which was rather unfortunate, since [[spoiler: Marinford war was one of them]].
** Introduction of [[spoiler: Pacifistas]] served as one - crew has to fight one of them together, using all of their strength to win, only for [[spoiler: Sentomaru to arrive with another one]]. That was the first time, that Luffy give order to run, without trying to fight back. And it was before [[spoiler: admiral Kizaru and Bartolomew Kuma arrived on the scene]].

*** And he even technically has TWO particular character quirks that would have fit properly as a comedy series antagonist because of being objectively silly; his tendency to rip out pillars and whatnot, shooting them as javelins and then jumping on them to travel using their momentum, and a fondness of his martial arts uniform which has PINK as the main color, to the point that he carries a drawing with the exact details of how his apparel should be assembled with him that he used to get a tailor to make him a replacement uniform after his original one suffered battle damage. It's telling how big a Knight of Cerebus and HeroKiller he is that they do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to make him seem even the slightest bit less terrifying when Goku was fighting him, as the pillar toss shows off his immense physical prowess, and he killed the tailor that made his new uniform just for insisting on payment for his work.

** ''Manga/OnePiece'' usually has a strange SortingAlgorithmOfEvil with its BigBad bosses, ranging from dangerously competent to incompetent with each antagonist, with the occasional appearance of a serious threat like a Warlord like Kuma or Mihawk and the Three Admirals show up in which the situation drastically becomes more threatening. Then Akainu, the last of those three Admirals makes his debut and completely breaks the StatusQuo by [[spoiler: killing Ace]], and the story's gotten significantly more DarkerAndEdgier in both its story and its enemies, while still retaining its positive elements.

** But the biggest example in a series is [[BigBad Tobi,]] [[spoiler:aka [[FallenHero Obito Uchiha]], when was revealed that he is the mastermind behind the Akatsuki and that he was responsible for the Nine-Tails' Attack on Konoha. It's taken even further when his next appearance brought in a whole new villain competency level, as he initiates the war on the horizon with his entire army of Expendable {{Mooks}} at his command, in addition to former, undead comrades, each of which is an S-rank criminal, including his own Six Paths of Pain made out of former Jinchuriki; with the Gold and Silver Brothers who are mini-Jinchuriki in their own right with the treasured tools of the series PhysicalGod in their possession, in addition to summoning the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path that doubles as a tank and the container for the nine different EldritchAbomination.

** [[AloofBigBrother Itachi Uchiha]] older brother [[{{Deuteragonist}} Sasuke]] is also one. First thing we learn about him that he kill the entire Uchiha clan save Sasuke for reasons of his own, then abandoned the village to join [[StandardEvilOrganizationSquad Akatsuki]]. And when it first appeared in Konoha with his partner Kisame to capture Naruto. He and Kisame easily defeated Kurenai, Asuma, and Kakashi, sending the last in hospital. When Sasuke heard his brother was in the area, he immediately rushed out to challenge him, but Itachi easily beat him and MindRaped him in the process, further feeding Sasuke's inferiority complex.

*** There's a non-villain example, although it takes a while before the "non-villainous" part is proven. Kurosaki's arrival is marked by him turning several innocent people into cards (a metaphor for death), being all-around sneaky and violent, and having the strange ability to make duel-monsters real. The CerberusSyndrome hits in full when he duels the BitchInSheepsClothing, unmasking [[spoiler: him]] and subsequently revealing that the real KnightOfCerebus villains have been HidingInPlainSight all along. Kurosaki himself is a ProperlyParanoid AntiHero whose pervious actions were part of an [[WellIntentionedExtremist extreme yet understandable plot]] that could have potentially saved countless lives if he hadn't been misinformed on the current situation.[[note]]Twice. He first thought his targets were part of the genocidal army that destroyed his home. After learning the truth continued to card people in order to lure out Reiji Akabar, hoping that he could be used as a hostage to force [[BigBad Leo Akbar]] to stop the war and return all prisoners. After learning that Leo Akabar doesn't give a shit about his son ''and'' [[ArchnemesisDad that Reiji is planning on waging war against Leo]], Kurosaki joined forces with Reiji and became a full AntiHero.[[/note]]

* ''LightNovel/TheSacredBlacksmith'' is a lighthearted, troperiffic, and a little fanservicey EpicFantasy manga/anime/light novel, at least until Siegfried, the first major antagonist, shows up. He is played seriously, and his actions darkens the story UpToEleven, especially in the manga and light novel. By far his most henious action is [[spoiler: brutally beating up, mocking and humilliating the female lead in an action that is, essentially, both physical and psychological rape, but without actual penetration]]. The aforementioned scene, which would not be out of place in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', comes out as a big shock because it is the last thing you think may happen in such a comedic fantasy series.
