* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' have the Scamps, small daedra that are known for their rancid smell. The quest "Whom Gods Annoy'' in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' has a poor Leyawiin resident cursed with a staff that summons these imps to stink up her home and annoy the hell out of her. While they're generally in the service of Mehrunes Dagon the staff is from Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness and morbid practical joker.

** The Sload are a race of "slugmen" native to Thras, an archipelago to the southwest of Tamriel. While they themselves operate on a BlueAndOrangeMorality, the denizens of Tamriel instead see them as AlwaysChaoticEvil. (Wiping out half of the continent's population with a MysticalPlague tends to spark those sorts of feelings...) The Sload are said to emanate a constant "repugnant" stench.

** Long-time Spidey villain Carnage apparently has an aroma similar to vomit. Given Carnage's habits, this is actually somewhat surprising - the Carnage symbiote is AxeCrazy and blood would seem more likely.

* ''{{Gyo}}'' lives off this trope, since the monsters in question are ''undead fish corpses''. Even living fish doesnt exactly smell good. [[spoiler: As it turns out, the corpses are just a delivery system, the true evil is a form of semi-sentient bacteria that propogates itself using the gasses released by decay. It's even worse for infected humans since they arent technically DEAD.]]



** Most of Creator/HPLovecraft's eldrich horrors are described as smelling rather icky.

** The titular house from ''The Shunned House'' is noted as positively reeking of decay and foulness. [[spoiler: Turns out to be caused by some gargantuan entity buried beneath it. Once it's been dissolved with acid, the smell disappears]]

Compare with UncleanlinessIsNextToUngodliness, where the stench is just a character's poor hygiene. Please note that the smell of evil isn't always proportionate to [[EvilTastesGood its taste.]]
