* Although his [[WellIntentionedExtremist evilness is debatable]], [[MagnificentBastard Scorpius]] from ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' is tall, imposing, vicious, wears all black and speaks...[[SubvertedTrope quite a few octaves higher than everyone else]]. He is ''definitely'' a {{Badass}} though.

* The English dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' does this with Frieza (portrayed then by Linda Young). Each time he transforms, his voice is artificially deepened. At first, it was just digital pitch-lowering with the 2nd form, but his 3rd form is more of a VoiceOfTheLegion deal. The 4th form, in a subversion, brings it back to normal - high-pitched. This is [[BishounenLine entirely in keeping with the physical nature of his transformations]]; in his second form he grows larger and more muscular, in his third form he's larger still and looks like a [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]], but his fourth form is barely larger than his first and is outwardly the least monstrous of them.

*** The Japanese version does almost the same thing (though Freeza's [[Creator/RyuseiNakao Japanese voice]] is already noticeably deep), except for his third form, which uses a high, raspy growl.
** Cell gets a bit of this too, in the English dub. His voice starts out as a sort of hissing rasp, and then grows deeper and more cultured as he gets more powerful. But it drops to downright Satanic levels when Cell gets ready to do something truly evil, [[spoiler: like killing Piccolo]]. Although his second form sounds slightly deeper than the third, the latter is much smoother.
*** Inverted in the Japanese version, however, where his voice starts out monstrous and gets slightly softer and more human-like with each transformation. As with Frieza, this means the voice changes match up with the physical changes. Considering Creator/NorioWakamoto voices him, though, this trope still applies.

smoother - again, the BishonenLine applies.

* Tony the Clock from ''[[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 2]]'' has a somehow low voice. While Sketchbook from the original short was AmbiguouslyEvil and quite creepy, Tony is portrayed in an even more malicious way.

*** Galvatron's voice in [[film/TransformersAgeOfExtinction the fourth movie]] was Frank Welker, and the performance has been noted for its similarity to the voice he used for Megatron in ''Transformers: Prime'' (see below).

* Subverted in the ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' film series where Creator/KevinGrevioux's character is a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Lycan]] named Raze with an unnaturally deep voice. He is brutish and violent, but he is not an inherently evil character. In the ''Rise of the Lycans'' prequel, he is decidedly a positive character. Even more jarring is that this is Grevioux's ''actual voice''.

** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' Megatron dives into the UncannyValley with how deep and almost artificial-sounding his voice is. His most loyal servant Lugnut also has a deep voice, and [[NoIndoorVoice wants you to know it]]. Starscream is still high and scratchy despite being a bigger threat to more people than before.

*** Most of the Decepticons from ''Prime'' have some very deep voices, in fact. Dreadwing and Shockwave are perhaps the deepest, but even ''[[AgentPeacock Knock Out]]'' has a deep voice! Starscream's voice is still higher-pitched, but less so than in G1 or ''Animated'', particularly on those rare occasionas when he's not panicking or groveling. The Predacons also have deep voices, especially Predaking when he reveals his voice.

** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' also has a number of Decepticons with deep voices, including the suave baritone of [[BigBad Steeljaw]] and the gruff [[BrookylynRage New York sccent]] of Thunderhoof. Special mention goes to Megatronus, who sounds like they're trying to conceal his voice actor's identity.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' with Kefka and his trademark EvilLaugh. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Seymour]], on the other hand, plays this straight with his commanding bass voice, which becomes [[VoiceOfTheLegion distorted]] when he transforms into Seymour Natus or Seymour Flux.
** ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' gave voice acting to characters from the first twelve games of the franchise. Apparently, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Garland]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Golbez]] ([[AntiVillain kinda]]), [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV Exdeath]] and [[BigBad Chaos]] subscribe to this trope.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':

Whenever they deign to personally address Shepard, they do so in a seriously deep voice so there's no question who's in charge.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'': [[spoiler: Sovereign has a very deep, ominous timbre, with all the flanging one might expect from a synthetic being]]. At high enough volumes, it almost feels like it's rattling your teeth.
