** Ferris Boyle (also from ''Batman'') is one of these as well; being responsible for turning Victor Fries into Mr. Freeze and supposedly killing his wife, Nora. Bonus for being voiced by Creator/MarkHamill, before he became SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.

* ''{{Persona 3}}'' has Tanaka, whose Social Link is The Devil and spends his time with the player talking about doing shady business (but not before making the protagonist pay him as an "investment"), though his interactions with the [[MessianicArchetype Main Character]] will encourage him to consider philanthropic work, if only for the purpose of having the people he may potentially help owe him.
* ''SaintsRow2'' and ''RedFaction'' had the Ultor corporation. Doing anything to earn a buck off Stillwater's middle and wealthy classes, they will not hesitate to exploit workers, start gang wars and bring in heavily armed men to protect investments.

Added DiffLines:

* Malcolm Hargrove from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''; he is largely a background character until Season 12, where his company Charon Industries is financing a civil war on the planet Chorus in an effort to kill everyone so Charon can get full access to the vast quantities of alien technology on Chorus. Also overlaps with CorruptPolitician, as Hargrove is the chairman of the UNSC Oversight Subcommittee and launched an investigation into Project Freelancer which, while revealing some of the highly illegal activities Freelancer was engaged in, was partially a cover so Hargrove could seize some of the experimental technology the project was dealing with.

* Wario's role in the ''VideoGame/WarioWare'' series is as one of these, but as an AntiHero rather than a villain. He's a lazy, greedy bastard with terrible hygiene problems, but the RuleOfFunny and RuleOfFun get him a free pass via his microgames.
