** Just like in the games, Chaos was this. An EldritchAbomination whose appearance becomes more monstrous as he "evolves" and gets more powerful. Unlike Eggman, he has no humorous traits, and his debut episode marked the series' shift toward more serious, continuity-heavy storytelling, contrasting previous episodes' lighthearted adventures and MonsterOfTheWeek format.
** The Metarex in the second series (first two seasons outside of Japan) fit this trope really well. So basically, the first two seasons of the show were pretty much light-hearted and funny in tone. Then cue the arrival of the Metarex, a group of dangerous robots [[spoiler: led by cyborg male Seedrians/Cosmo's race]] that plan to harness the power of the Planet Eggs to [[spoiler:exterminate all animal life in the galaxy so plants can rule]]. The Metarex come in many different types of their own, like the one-shot villain Red Pine, the LaughablyEvil [[TheBrute brute]] Yellow Zelkova, emotionless monsters like Pale Bay Leaf as well as Black Narcissus, who [[MoralEventHorizon captured and tortured Chris and Cosmo and used them as bait to lure Sonic to him]], and [[TragicVillain the tragically villainous]] MagnificentBastard Dark Oak himself.

** Even before that, we had Chaos, who was this just like in the games. An EldritchAbomination whose appearance becomes more monstrous as he "evolves" and gets more powerful. Unlike Eggman, he has no humorous traits, and his debut episode marked the series' shift toward more serious, continuity-heavy storytelling, contrasting previous episodes' lighthearted adventures and MonsterOfTheWeek format. With such tone shift, it's no wonder 4kids choose his debut episode as the premiere of the second season outside of Japan.

* Rei Katsura from ''Anime/DigimonUniverseApplimonsters''. He is an AntiHero, and whenever he's around, there's nothing ''funny'' about this guy.

** Pokémon Hunter J surpasses them in malevolence, being the darkest villain to ever appear in the series and to never suffer from VillainDecay, not to mention being one of the few characters that was actually [[spoiler: killed off]]. While technically not a villain, Paul seems headed this way, being more abusive towards his Pokémon than anyone else.
** Another example is Sabrina, who popped up earlier than Butch and Cassidy and before J did. Sabrina only appeared for two episodes, and after her arc everything returned for normal, but for years later, no villain surpassed Sabrina in terms of scariness[[note]]Even though Sabrina was closer to a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, as it is implied that she was incapable of controlling her psychic powers before Haunter came along[[/note]]. Let's face it: she transformed trainers she defeated into dolls, and was just plain creepy. J may be more evil and has no qualms committing murder, but at least she doesn't turn people into dolls. (Only she's a gym leader and not a villain)

** 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 Jinchuuriki; with the Gold and Silver Brothers who are mini-Jinchuuriki 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. And it's taken UpToEleven when [[spoiler:he revives the Ten Tails and takes his under contro and turns the table of CurbStompBattle against the Alliance by beginning a methodical attack against the Allied Shinobi, nullifying every jutsu they use against him, and he even summons the tree form of the Ten-Tails and has it absorb the chakra of nearby ninja, taking their chakra and killing many, thus using this rising death toll to shatter the determination of the Shinobi Alliance.]]

** [[spoiler:[[GreaterScopeVillain Madara Uchiha]] though to a little lesser extent than the previous example but still worthy of mention. His arrival on the battlefield turns the table against the Alliance from a swift victory of hope to a losing CurbStompBattle of despair. And his complete revival quickly reverts all that the heroes fought to achieve and puts both of the protagonists at death's doorstep.]]

** And when appeared [[TheDragon Pain]] the leader of Akatsuki things really become more darker. In his first appearance he kill one of the most influential mentors to Naruto, Jiraiya and then single-handedly destroyed the Leaf Village, and brought Tsunade to a coma. He also killed numerous named characters, such as Ibiki and Shizune, lead Kakashi to his death, and [[ImpaledwithExtremePrejudice nearly-killed Hinata]], though these were [[BackfromtheDead reversed with his redemption, other than Jiraiya]].

** Before King Piccolo showed up, the {{Big Bad}}s in ''Manga/DragonBall'' were mostly comedic, and even the exceptions weren't especially dangerous, and were {{Non Action Big Bad}}s. Then he established himself as a {{badass}} HeroKiller who ''succeeds'' in his goals of obtaining the Dragon Balls and [[TakeOverTheWorld taking over the world]]. Only afterwards does Goku manage to kill him.
