A Big Bad 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 ''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.

It is one of the most well-known tropes on the TV Tropes community, [[OverdosedTropes it being the only one to have over thirty thousand wicks.]] This is probably because it's incredibly common; it's OlderThanFeudalism, and it applies to almost every villain in any multi-part speculative work.

See also BigBadDuumvirate for two (or more) Big Bads working together ([[EvilVsEvil or not]]). Sometimes a Big Bad will get their start as a servant to another villain -- if that's the case, they're a DragonAscendant. If the character who fills the role of Big Bad in most meaningful ways is nominally subordinate to someone else (someone significantly less menacing by comparison), they are a DragonInChief. If the story has many Big Bads at once who ''don't'' work together, see BigBadEnsemble. If the Big Bad doesn't start out as bad but develops over the course of the story, it's BigBadSlippage.
