** The following example:
[[AxCrazy Gaara]]. During the Chunin exam, things always gotten darker and bloodier whenever it focused on him, from start to end. Until Orochimaru came in, Gaara was permanently the most ruthless and savage (constantly wanting to see people bleed), and the only Chunin exam villain without any comedic traits, or even moments of comedy at all.

** and then the second arc of that season introduces [[EldritchAbomination Coredegon]] who plans to murder the Bakugan for [[DisproportionateRetribution rather trivial reasons]] and subverts every trope associated with anime in general. He's also the only antagonist to [[spoiler: kill both a human and a main character]], even if [[spoiler: this is undone via SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong]].

** 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 drastic tone shift, it's no wonder 4kids choose to mark his debut episode as the premiere of the second season outside of Japan.

** And when [[TheDragon Pain]], the leader of Akatsuki, appeared, things really become darker. In his first appearance, he kills 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 Shizune and Fukasaku, led Kakashi to his death, and nearly killed [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Hinata]], though these came [[BackFromTheDead reversed with his redemption]], other than [[KilledOffForReal Jiraiya]].
** 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 control 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.]]

** [[AloofBigBrother Itachi Uchiha]], [[{{Deuteragonist}} Sasuke's]] older brother, is also one. First thing we learn about him is that he killed the entire Uchiha clan save Sasuke for reasons of his own, then abandoned the village to join [[StandardEvilOrganizationSquad Akatsuki]]. When he 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.
