* Lord Brevon from ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' is this compared to other characters in the story. Whenever he appears -- or is even mentioned -- in a cutscene, the game ''always'' get much darker and serious.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'' starts out with a lot of the same lighthearted humor of [[Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} the film series]], but things start to get considerably creepy when the Spider Witch turns up in the level where the Sedgewick Hotel is revisited. Like the other Node Guardians, she's murdered a lot of people, but we actually see the bodies of a lot of her victims and witness a reenactment of her leading one of her victims to his death. The lives taken by the previously encountered Node Guardians were at worst briefly mentioned, but actually knowing the full detail of the Spider Witch's crimes has quite a lasting effect on the tone of the game from then on.

** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' is largely a BlackComedy with most less than moral actions the protagonist CJ or the other criminals commit being treated humorously and most the characters being extremely quirky. The exceptions to this involve the game's BigBad Frank Tenpenny. The scenes with him are almost entirely humorless, any humor involving him is mostly played to show how much of {{Jerkass}} he is, along with the rest of his personality, and unlike the other characters, he shows that he has no absolutely no sense of loyalty to others and flat scoffs on the idea.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' gives us its BigBad, [[EvilChancellor Ardyn Izunia]]. For the majority of the game, he actually helps Noctis and his friends progress through their journey at certain points, [[FauxAffablyEvil acting chummy towards them]] the whole time (though they don't fall for it and suspect that he's up to something). Come [[WhamEpisode Chapter 9]], however, he drops the act and cements his status as a Knight of Cerebus via [[spoiler:fatally stabbing Luna while Noctis is helpless to do anything about it]] before going on to put his true plan into motion. After that, the game's story takes a much darker and more serious turn.

* ''VideoGame/LegoDimensions'': The [[Franchise/DoctorWho Cybermen and Weeping Angels]], who are just as frightening here as they are in their home series, with few humorous moments, if any. It's quite jarring, seeing them alongside villains like The Joker, [=GlaDOS=], and Lord Business. The playable Cyberman is toned down a bit, but still has a degree of uncanniness to it.

* [[EvilOverlord Overlord]] [[BigBad Tenebrae]] from VideoGame/ChroniclesOfMagicae. The game had lots and lots of humour and even allowed you to [[DefeatEqualsFriendship spare your enemies, some of them even joining you]]. Tenebrae, on the other hand, has no redeemable or laughable traits and his actions are played terrifyingly straight. For example, he [[MindRape mind raped]] Astrea, forcing her to relive her horrific past that he caused, [[HeroKiller killed Lucas]], TheChosenOne, and, after Lucas [[BackFromTheDead came back]], Tenebrae forces a SadisticChoice on him, either let Kuki-Sensei die, or his LoveInterest Astrea. If you pick Kuki-Sensei, he will force [[FriendToAllLivingThings Astrea]] to attack you.

** Downplayed with [[FallenHero Marquis]], Tenebrae's [[TheDragon right-hand man]]. Sure both of his MoralEventHorizon crossings are played seriously, but since he has a few funny moments here and there, plus his boss is more of a [[KickTheDog dog-kicking bastard]] than [[{{Jerkass}} he]] [[ForTheEvulz is]], he comes off as less serious than his boss.

** Continuing the tradition, in VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon, the true villain, [[spoiler: the leader of the Aether Foundation, Lusamine, is among the darkest villains the the franchise period. Lusamine is an abusive mother extraordinaire who treats her own children as objects to be discarded - going as far as to try and directly murder one of her children, placing her a head above even Ghetsis - and is willing to wreak wide swathes of destruction across Alola due to her psychotic obsession with the eldritch Ultra Beasts (which are heavily implied to have driven her insane after her husband vanished into Ultra Space, to boot). Lusamine goes as far as to physically ''fuse'' with one of these Ultra Beasts, and the ensuing battle is likely among the most disturbing in the franchise. She's earned a net of comparisons to [[Anime/KillLaKill Ragyo Kiryuin]] for good reason.]]

** The Ultra Beasts also spark a darker tone once they appear, with much being made of their destructive power, violent tendency and threat to both humans and Pokémon. Their postgame storyline is among the darkest plots in the series, with [[spoiler:the implication that the International Police are using the player (who's no more than eleven) as human bait, as well as Looker telling them that if they can't catch the Ultra Beasts, they must be destroyed ([[ButThouMust not that the player is even given the option to destroy them]])]]. Even within this storyline, there's a Knight in the form of UB-05: Glutton, [[spoiler:a.k.a. Guzzlord. It's revealed that ten years prior, a Faller used as bait was "[[DeadlyEuphemism done in]]" by it as a result of Looker taking pity on it. Rarely if ever has a Pokémon outright ''killing'' a human been mentioned before]].

** [[spoiler:Dusknoir]], the BigBad of [[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky]]. While the earlier villains encountered were either [[{{Jerkass}} jerks]] or [[LaughablyEvil total idiots]] at best, this guy, unfortunately, isn't.
