An extreme form of ParanoiaFuel. Named after [[Film/BadSanta the movie of the same name]]. If it's the real deal, it's a case of AdaptationalVillainy. If not, it usually ends up fighting the real deal, BadassSanta! For santa's who are more "incompetent" than "evil", see TheAntiGrinch.

For children brought up with the 'commercialized' form of Christmas, Santa Claus can be seen as something of a symbol of divine judgment as well as a jolly child-friendly icon, making the Bad Santa almost like a combination between the KnightTemplar and the MonsterClown. It isn't uncommon for the Bad Santa to herald his appearance with a twisted form of the 'naughty or nice' list - usually with severe penalties for whoever is judged 'naughty'.

See also TheKrampus, a Trope based on a concept often confused with this one.

* In the {{Novelization}} of ''Film/DawnOfTheDead'', one of the evil biker gang members assaulting the mall inexplicably dresses like Santa. He's consequently known amongst his buddies as Jolly Old Saint Nick, or simply Nick for short. [[spoiler:Apart from the costume, he embodies none of the typical "evil Santa" traits and is just one of the gang members, and in fact dies a pretty uneventful death at the hands of zombies during the siege of the mall.]]
