The bad guys from ''Literature/TheBible'' are well known and as such don't require introduction, and [[VillainByDefault everyone knows they are evil]]. The really handy thing is that many of them are regularly theorized to be [[BlessedWithSuck cursed]] with [[WhoWantsToLiveForever immortality]] as part of their punishment for being bad guys, providing a decent reason for them to show up in any time period.

* Not a direct example, but The Knights of the Blackened Denarius in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' get their powers from 30 silver coins, each with a fallen angel inside. The coins are heavily implied to be ''the'' 30 coins that Judas was paid to betray Jesus. Nicodemus, leader of the Knights, also wears the noose Judas hung himself with as a necktie; it offers him protection from anything. [[spoiler:Except, as Harry finds out when he tugs on the end of it, itself.]]

* [[spoiler:Naoya]] in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' [[spoiler:is a reincarnation of Cain, punished by God to be reborn every time the old body dies, and has the memory of every life time he has lived ever since his first life. [[ThePunishment Over his long life he has become obsessed with revenge]] and seeks to achieve that by having Abel, the player character]], rebel against God. Granted, this is ''MegaTen'', so [[GodIsEvil YHWH]] [[GreyAndGreyMorality kinda deserves it]]. It is implied in Overclocked that YHWH [[spoiler:manipulated Cain into killing Abel.]]
