*The weird, disturbing, avante-garde, and obscure French video game "Off" features a being called "The Batter" who in the end turns out to be trying to turn the world into a pristine nothingness because he thinks that it's better that way. He believes that by defeating enemies he's purifying them. During battles you can even see the words "purication in progress" on the screen.

** When the Angel [[spoiler:Tyrael sacrifices his powers]], an uncontrolled amount of his power permeates the land surrounding New Tristram. His power is aligned with [[spoiler:Justice]] so it awakens the dead who desire that, namely revenge on those who killed them. As their true targets are long dead, they instead turn on the living.

** Imagawa Yoshimoto, though not evil, is a DirtyCoward whose only connection to Light is merely his love for [[EverythingsFunkierWithDisco disco]] and as such summons light shows for attacks.

* Gehn from ''VideoGame/{{Riven}}''. He is a TragicVillain, who grew up ostracized from his fellow D'ni (because his mother was human, and his father a full-blooded D'ni), and watched his home empire fall. However, his knowledge of the Art of writing the D'ni's mystical Linking Books has given him a [[AGodAmI deity complex]], where he sees the worlds that he writes as his own divine creations (rather than worlds that already exist), and the peoples of those worlds worth no more than insects. He wears an immaculate white-and-gold militaristic uniform, with gold-colored buttons and gold embroidered rank-like branch symbols. Did we mention he tried to kill his own son, Atrus? (He also does this to [[spoiler:you, the player, if you trap yourself in the book intended to trap him, tease him when you refuse to use the same book when he requests it, or if you open the Star Fissure at the wrong time.]])

He keeps his book-writing desk in the same fashion, which is a gaudy, almost temple-like gold and white-marble structure in his office on Age 233. Did we mention he tried to kill Atrus, his own benevolent son? ([[spoiler:Which he does in one of the bad endings.]]) As part of a FreudianExcuse, he is a TragicVillain, who grew up ostracized from his fellow D'ni (because his mother was human, and his father a full-blooded D'ni), and watched his home empire fall.

* The Angels in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', which are best described as "grotesque monstrosities with marble-colored skin, stereotypical Greekish clothing, wings, and halos." They are literally from the 'World of Light' called Paradiso (in contrast to Inferno, the 'World of Darkness', and the human world, also known as the 'World of Chaos'), but beyond being angels of light, they are actually quite evil, full of themselves, and express a great bigotry against humankind. In fact, they might as well be described as "Light Is Evil", as throughout two games they have never shown any redeemable qualities whatsoever ([[OurDemonsAreDifferent even with the infernal demons]], both DarkIsEvil and DarkIsNotEvil varieties exist).

The last of the Lumen Sages, he orchestrated the genocide of both them and the Umbra Witches, [[spoiler: killed Luca's father]], is the one commanding the angels, and does not seem to care for his [[spoiler:daughter]] beyond being a tool for the awakening of [[GodIsEvil Jubileus]], who he intends to use to destroy the current universe so that a prettier one can be created [[spoiler:(although it turns out to be a circumstance of DemonicPossession as Balder housed the pure evil half of the former God of Chaos and humankind, Loptr)]].
