* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': [[DealWithTheDevil Infernals]] are widely considered to be ''way'' more awesome than Solars. The Solar charmset is generally viewed as kind of bland (the overriding theme is "I am really good at this" with a few paragraphs for each Charm describing what they are good at and how that is expressed), while Infernals do things like turning a glass of water into a tentacle or ''undergoing mitosis''. Solars have an ascension path of "Solars with higher Essence", while Infernals can forge themselves into new Primordials. Abyssals, the other equivalent of Solars, [[SubvertedTroped on the other hand, are much less popular due to flaws in their Charmset]] and limited support for character paths other than "angsty penitent" or "kill the world and piss on the ashes".

* ''MightyMax'': the archvillain Skullmaster was voiced by TimCurry. Luckily, for the rest of the cast, he only showed up in about 5 episodes. But in those episodes, well, he rules hell, and has demon and zombie armies at his command. Oh, and he can outsmart the SmartGuy and beat the BigGuy in a straight fight. Oh, and [[EvilPlan all of his convoluted plans succeed]]...except for the last one. [[TimeyWimeyBall Maybe.]]

** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Kuja]]: May be a bit of a BaseBreaker with his [[ViewerGenderConfusion effeminate]] [[AgentPeacock appearance]], but damn if he didn't have flare. Among other things, he tanks a blast from Bahamut and comes away with only a minor scratch, pulls the rug out from under, kills, and replaces the BiggerBad ([[spoiler:who also created him]]), [[ApocalypseWow destroys a planet]], very nearly [[RetGone reality itself]], making him perhaps the most successful Final Fantasy villain next to Kefka, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking walking around referencing plays]] as if he were [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy in one]].

* Creator/ChristopherMarlowe was good at writing this type of character; the best-known example is Mephistopheles in Theatre/DoctorFaustus, but Tamburlaine of the play of the same name and Barnabas of The Jew of Malta also qualify. Oh, and the evil ghost Machiavelli.

* [[SuperMarioBros Bowser]], despite his VillainDecay and [[GoKartingWithBowser penchant for competitive sports]] over the years, is still a giant, [[SpikesOfVillainy spiky]], [[BreathWeapon fire-breathing]] turtle-dragon, and winning a one-on-one fight with him as a pudgy plumber will always be satisfying - and yet, he's still a powerful menace when he needs to be, especially in the main Mario platformers. ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'' seems to play to this, where the big bad spiky dude is the main character (even if he ultimately has to save the Mushroom Kingdom) and, rather than being merely a comedic ButtMonkey, he's shown as a HotBlooded Badass when he needs to be, and still gets plenty of hilarious scenes. Subsequent ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' installments run with this trope and depict Bowser as a much smarter and more menacing villain than in previous RPG's, all while keeping him as the LaughablyEvil BoisterousBruiser fans know and love.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} has Roman Torchwick and Cinder Fall. Roman for being a stylish, snarky, badass who can mange to look cool even while losing. Cinder for being mysterious and CreepyAwesome. [[spoiler: [[BigBad Cinder's apparent boss, Salem,]] also qualifies, with a seriously cool design, and being voiced by Jen freaking Taylor.]]

* ''YuYuHakusho'', Younger Toguro. Compare with villains before, [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer he's only power being]] [[HulkOut Hulking Out]] might seem lame at a glance, but he gets so much power from sheer brute strength that he can render flashy techniques utterly useless (and the fights with him are still damn cool to watch), and has force extremely powerful youkai into working for him without even fighting at full strength.
