** Played straight with Ipslore the Red, BigBad of ''Discworld/{{Sourcery}}'' who cheerfully abandoned all sympathetic qualities with the death of his wife and became the ManBehindTheMan to his son, the sourcerer in question (so called, because [[SeventhSonOfASeventhSon his place in the birth order]], Coin is capable of generating magical energy-which makes him a PhysicalGod). He exists only in a SoulJar, but how he was able to sneak that one past [[GrimReaper Death]] cements his place here; he made it so that reaping his soul will ''[[OffingTheOffspring kill Coin]]''. Averted with Coin himself, however; he's a remarkably sweet kid for someone with such a terrible role model.

** [[SmugSnake Edwin]] [[ButtMonkey Odesseiron]] ''wishes'' he were an evil sorcerer. His inexperience, social ineptitude, [[EvilIsPetty relentless pettiness]], and massive hubris make him a rather [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain hapless, pitiable figure]] despite his tremendous magical talent.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Melisandre boasts magical abilities, although it's handled in a subtle, non-flashy way. Melisandre herself mentions that most of her more flamboyant displays of power are actually clever fakes, used to impress the impressionable. The limits of her true powers are unknown.

* [[BigBad Zeref]] from ''Manga/FairyTail'' is a {{deconstruction}}: He [[spoiler:UsedToBeASweetKid who just wanted his baby brother back, and never quite understood why researching the connection of life, death, and magic was so taboo.]] As a result of his curiosity and dedication to somebody he loved and cared about, he was [[spoiler:cursed by a JerkassGod]], and everything went downhill for him there. His turn to [[CreatingLifeIsBad Living Magic]] was less about power for power's sake and more about ending his own life [[spoiler:and saving his brother's]]. His actual StartOfDarkness came after his curse "[[OnlyMostlyDead killed]]" the [[LoveMakesYouEvil love of his life]] and he came to believe that HumansAreBastards thanks to the unique prospective of CompleteImmortality provides on the more unfortunate side of human nature that he ''truly'' became this.
