* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', many pairings of Red, which is heavily associated with chaos, and Black, which is overwhelmingly associated with evil, give us this trope. Every demon costs black, red, or both.
** Exception: Innistrad vampires (associated with both red and black mana) avert this alignment for the most part, with Stromkirk vampires embracing a NobleDemon artistic approach (both black and red traits) in contrast to some of the other bloodlines that are a lot more bloodcrazed. As to this, it stands to show that red and black combo does not ''nessecarily'' mean Chaotic Evil.
** Still, it is an iconic villain combo in MagicTheGathering; the very first canon villain, Mishra, was Black/Red.

The Nobilis of War from Shadowmoor was also Chaotic Evil, and he was Red/[[LightIsNotGood White]].

* The Shadows from ''Series/BabylonFive'' are perceived like this in the beginning - an ancient, sinister race that emerges from the deepest bowels of the cosmos to annihilate everything in its path with world-shattering firepower and insidious treachery. The truth turns out to be a bit more complicated. Essentially, they ARE everything mentioned above, except that their ultimate goal is to kick-drive their enemies (whom they rather see as students) up the evolutionary and technological ladder. Thus, they are perfectly happy when they eventually loose the battle and are driven away to return in a thousand years for another "lesson".

In season 4, he proves himself to be ''firmly'' Type 1 when he provides advice to TheHero Korra in order to defeat the LawfulEvil tyrant Kuvira (who came to power in the vacuum left in the wake of his own actions).

** Havik from the Realm of Chaos is either this or ChaoticNeutral, in the sense that he promotes Chaos as an ideal throughout the realms and actively opposes the Realm of Order and its plans. In ''Armageddon'' both he and Hotaru, the Order champion, were on the side of Evil, though that's mostly because there wasn't a OrderVersusChaos thing going on.
** Quan Chi. In ''Alliance'' both he and Shao Kahn are mentioned as using the Mortal Kombat tournament "to destroy all that is good", and in the earlier ''Mortal Kombat Gold'' he tells Baraka that his only goal is to obtain power...which apparently entails [[OmnicidalManiac killing everyone everywhere]] so that he doesn't have to "hold coil" to them, ie. he thinks ultimate power, by definition, ''has'' to mean zero responsibility, and he'll KillEmAll to ensure no one so much as tries to make him responsible for anything. And lets not get started on his ChronicBackstabbingDisorder.
** In ''Deception'', Kabal performs a FaceHeelTurn and reforms The Black Dragon as a Chaotic Evil organization out to cause global anarchy. Thanks to a CosmicRetcon, this became an AbortedArc and last time we saw him he was still a hero, [[spoiler:a dead hero.]]

* The cartoonist of ''WebComic/KevinAndKell'' classifies Angelique as Chaotic Evil: she can hold a ''serious'' grudge and will screw over anyone to make sure she gets out on top, including seizing control of her ex-husband's company and nearly liquidating it to make a profit, selling out her fellow rabbits, and spurring her NeutralEvil husband R.L. into more overt attempts at sabotaging Kell's rival company.

* Frank Booth from ''Film/BlueVelvet'' is a vile, perverted, sadistic and psychopathic gangster, who definitely fits the Chaotic Evil category given his actions throughout the film. From his introduction, which consisted of huffing oxygen while raping Isabella Rossellini, it can be seen that he is one of the most evil characters in David Lynch's films, and that's saying a lot.

** The character known only as the "Magic Man" uses his magic powers almost exclusively to harass people for his own amusement. He was exiled from his home planet for such crimes as turning all of the water on the planet into hair, fusing people's bodies together and making people's shadows come to life and attack them. He also uses his powers to set up {{Family Unfriendly Aesop}}s; in his first appearance on the show, when Finn gives him some food thinking him to be a beggar, he turns Finn into a giant disembodied foot so Finn can "learn to appreciate what a jerk I am." [[spoiler:He becomes more of a TrueNeutral after the events of "You Forgot Your Floaties".]]
