* ''Theatre/LesMiserables'': being one of the only lawful characters in the entire show, he naturally opposes and antagonizes every main character: he tries to arrest Valjean multiple times, he defends Fantine's rapist by having her arrested instead, he threatens Eponine and the Thenardiers with arrest (and is presumably already familiar with the latters' antics), and spies on and directly opposes Marius and Enjolras's revolution. Curiously, despite being the main villain, he is not the most evil character in the show: that honor goes to the Thenardiers, who are full-blown ChaoticEvil compared to Javert's Lawful Neutral, and worst of all, [[KarmaHoudini get away with it all]].

This trope is not a catch-all term for the biggest, ugliest or even primary villain of any given story. The badass leader of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad outlaw gang]] that causes the most personal trouble is TheHeavy, ''not'' the Big Bad. The [[CorruptCorporateExecutive railroad tycoon]] who turns out to be ''using'' the gang as muscle is the Big Bad. TheManBehindTheMan is very common for this trope, leaving the reveal of the big bad as TheChessmaster behind it all and proving themselves far more clever and resourceful than the VillainOfTheWeek. Sometimes the BigBad is the grand enemy of the entire story as an OverarchingVillain. At other times, the Big Bad is an ArcVillain who causes trouble for a period of time only to be replaced by another Big Bad with ambitious plans.

->''I've learned that, in every story, there is a big, bad something. An evil force that, no matter the size, corrupts the world of the story, and tries its best to destroy the hero. A wolf, a witch, a giant, a dragon, a knight... or an idea, a desire, a temptation... or even a book.''

* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' has Makuta, the arch-enemy of the BigGood, Mata Nui.

to:

* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' has Makuta, the arch-enemy of the BigGood, Mata Nui.Nui, and he's about as much of a chessmaster as Palpentine or Voldemort. It's worth noting that he actual ''wins'' and usurps the "god" of the world and gains ''control of the universe''.
--->"Little Toa, you have not yet begun to see even the barest outlines of my plans. I have schemes within schemes that would boggle your feeble mind. You may counter one, but there are a thousand more of which you know nothing. Even my ... setbacks ... are planned for, and so I shall win in the end."
