* ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'' initially plays this straight, but the second half of the story [[AvertedTrope averts]] it ''[[{{Deconstruction}} hard]]''. At first, Jade is essentially the same character, with the addition that she's now a villain, and generally just succeeds where other villains failed just to prove that she ''can'', without really acting truly "evil" (at one point she organizes a complex scheme top steal the Dog Talisman for no other reason than to make her dog immortal). But RealityEnsues amd between the continued Shadowkahn corruption, and a TraumaCongaLine [[spoiler: she [[MotiveDecay slowly becomes]] [[SanitySlippage worse and]] [[TheCaligula worse]] and starts crossing the MoralEventHorizon repeatedly, and becoming less and less sympathetic.]] Lampshaded by the author at one point:
--> ''' Eduard Kassel:''' I am sure many of you are disappointed, wanting a cool villain Jade. Well, you had her, more or less, for a while. This story has been about exploring Jade's fall to darkness, not celebrating it. And my explorations, in planning this story, lead me to [[EvilIsNotAToy evil not being a toy]]. And as [[SLowlySlippingIntoEvil you give yourself to darkness]], [[BeingEvilSucks bit by bit you lose yourself to it]].

Why is all that true? Why does the bad guy get all the cool stuff? [[TheVillainMakesThePlot The more interesting the bad guy, the more interesting the story]]. It really is that simple. You don't have a story unless you have conflict. The bad guy in most cases ''is'' the conflict.

** From the spinoff ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' computer games: [[SinisterMinister Eliphas the Inheritor]] is universally considered one of the top five characters, as is [[LaughablyEvil Gorgutz 'Ead 'Unter]]. Mainly because Eliphas is almost painfully {{badass}} with a dark charisma and Gorgutz is {{crazy awesome}}ly insane.

** They eventually won took over the world they were invading, and there's a persistent myth that it was a popularity contest and took over that 51% "vote" was what doomed Mirrodin. (Actually, with set lead times, New Phyrexia was finished and printed before Scars of Mirrodin even came out, and plans for corrupting Mirrodin went back to the world which they were fighting for.original block, but the "popularity contest" myth is engaging enough to hang on.)



* For ''TabletopGame/IronKingdoms'' players, much of the appeal of the evil factions is how cool their models look.

* For ''TabletopGame/IronKingdoms'' players, much of the appeal of the evil factions is how cool their models look. In particular, Cryx's popularity was only ''partially'' due to their power level in Mk 2; a lot of the rest of it was the armies of cyborg zombies, sexy but sadistic satyr buccaneers, and malevolent ghosts, backed by scuttling, buglike black-iron warjacks and led by machine-liches.
