* [[TheBrute Sunder]] and [[PsychoElectro Balio]] in ''BreathOfFireIII''. Up until that point, the game focussed on the light-hearted adventures of LoveableRogue Rei and his two charges, Teepo and [[KidHero Ryu]]. Then the rob a corrupt mayor and are told he's part of TheMafia, and said Mafia doesn't like being stolen from. After Sunder and Balio [[KickTheDog torch Rei's treehouse then beat the crap out of and separate the three kids]], Ryu begins searching the world for his missing buddies, running afoul of the two villains several more times.

** Sepulchure himself in the games made by ArtixEntertainment that he appears in fits, seeing as how there's less humor when he's around. In contrast with many {{Harmless Villain}}s working for him, he [[TheDreaded invokes fear in others]] and kills off many people, including the ones in the Guardian Tower he crashed his fortress into, as a show of proving that he means business. Of course, his [[LackOfEmpathy lack of remorse]] in turning Fluffy into a Dracolich and causing death and destruction doesn't stop him from being an AntiVillain with standards who loves his daughter Gravelyn so much [[spoiler:that he becomes unwilling to kill her despite her being the Champion of Light he sought to destroy]], and is trying to bring back his lost love Lynaria.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles'':
** The game starts off pretty light for the first couple of hours until Metal Face appears and attacks Colony 9 and then murders Fiora, setting off Shulk's quest for {{Revenge}}. Every single time he appears their will be no Comedic Moment. Especially not after TheReveal.
** After Egil's appearance in Yaldabaoth things quickly take a turn for the worst. It's revealed that [[spoiler:Egil is actually a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds who brainwashed most of the Faced Mechon to destroy the Bionis]] after [[spoiler:Zanza]] attacked Agnirathia and caused hundreds of people to flee.

** Jasper Batt Jr. in ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'' starts the game's DarkerAndEdgier tone off by the delivering the head of Travis' friend Bishop through his apartment window. There's also the revelation that [[spoiler: all the CEOs of Pizza Butt Travis killed in the first game were all his family members, and he's merely perpetuating the CycleOfRevenge between the two of them. Once Travis actually meets him face-to-face, however, the game actively defies any attempt at serious drama by making him the single most ridiculous boss in both games, to the point that Henry even bails out after his BigDamnHeroes moment because the fight is just getting too silly for him.]]

* Hawke in ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars 2'' manages to simultaneously pull off a Knight of Cerebus and a WorthyOpponent. While the game's QuirkyMinibossSquad are about as quirky as you can get without major surgery, Hawke is serious to a fault, especially when facing off against Eagle: when his giant sea fortress comes under attack by Eagle's squadron is approaching, he says "how predictable" and ''surrounds it'' with anti-air units, forcing the player to resort to clever tactics and ''massive'' casualties. And later on, he decides to stop Eagle from interfering all together by forcing his troops to march past a place where his air units can't go: an ''active volcano''.
* The entire Bolt Guard from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars Dual Strike'' manage to one-up Hawke ''big time''. While other games were cartoonish and out for world domination, [[BigBad Von Bolt]] and his Bolt Guard intend to drain the very life of the Earth itself, leaving the entire planet a lifeless husk of desert and sand, and unleash the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Oozium 223]] that are graphically described by [[TheDragon Kindle]] to "melt the flesh right off their victims". [[spoiler:It's ''really'' telling that it's enough to make the former baddies, Hawke and Lash, question if it's even worth being ''that'' evil, which gets them marked for death and forces them to [[EnemyMine flee to the good guys for survival]].]]
* ''Then'' we have Dr. Caulder from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars Days Of Ruin'', whose plans involve unleashing a horrible virus that causes plants to erupt from ''beneath your skin'', give weapons to both sides of a war to increase casualties, [[SadisticChoice face people with horrific choices]], perform experiments on people, murder the survivors of an apocalypse, and destroy factories capable of manufacturing food and water...with absolutely no motive outside of [[ForScience seeing "what would happen".]]

** SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}} himself actually became this in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2''. Granted he's still humorously hammy as always, but at least he holds onto the fearsome BigBad role this time. He even started out with this trope in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'' compared to AntiVillain Donkey Kong in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' and BadBoss Foreman Spike in ''VideoGame/WreckingCrew''.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendaryStarfy:'' Evil, the GreaterScopeVillain of the series, is singlehandedly responsible for [[DarkerAndEdgier darkening the tone of the game he appears in considerably,]] and he [[spoiler:kills Moe's dad, making him and Mashtooth, the BigBad of the fifth game, the only villains responsible for onscreen murder.]] He also [[spoiler:nearly ''wins'' until the previous BigBad, Ogura, pulls a HeelFaceTurn on him and destroys him once and for all.]]


Added DiffLines:

*''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'': [[spoiler:Even after The Reveal,]] The Enchantress is the only villain in the game who is not played for laughs and is portrayed as evil throughout.

* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' serves as a clone of and a tribute to the ''Francise/MegaMan'' franchise, with various nostalgic moments and some amounts of humor. Then once [[spoiler:Iris shows her true colors]], things go south very quickly. You don't even have to go any further than the beginning of the side game ''Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert'' to see for yourself [[spoiler:as she starts said story off by killing a random priest for the heck of it]], and that's saying something.
