* In the infamous Franchise/SpiderMan arc ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'', Mephisto makes a deal with Spider-Man to erase his and Mary Jane's marriage from the time-line in exchange for Aunt May's life. He doesn't even want Spider-Man's soul, since that would be a HeroicSacrifice, nor does he have any sort of complex EvilPlan in the works--[[JoeQuesada h]][[WriterOnBoard e]] just doesn't like the fact that Peter and Mary Jane are happy together. Mephisto was just as petty when he went after ComicBook/SilverSurfer back in the day. He didn't attack him because of some master plan or because Surfer had done something to him. He just couldn't stand the Surfer's nobility. For a hell lord, Mephisto is pretty petty. He also tricked a hapless bartender into agreeing to become his personal ''[[AndIMustScream living immortal inkwell]]'' because the guy had the balls to ask for a tip. This after he spent the night talking about all of the various irons he has in the fire that lead to ''Fear Itself'' among other things.

** Lester Nygaard starts off as a sympathetic ButtMonkey who finally snaps and commits a horrible act. However, when he gets away with his crimes, he becomes a SnugSnake and soon starts exhibiting petty behavior similar to that of Hess.

* Vince [=McMahon=] himself. After losing the ECW Championship (which he didn't win fairly in the first place) to Wrestling/BobbyLashley, Mr. [=McMahon=] [[VillainousBSOD temporarily lost his mind]], [[TranquilFury becoming eerily silent]] and then babbling random nonsense. When he recovered, he did everything he could to make everyone else feel as miserable as he did, starting with forcing titleholders into impromptu title matches in the hope they'd also lose their gold and culminating in "indefinitely suspending" Wrestling/AshleyMassaro [[DisproportionateRetribution because she accidentally spilled coffee on him]]. Which was made all the worse by his [[FauxAffablyEvil seeming reasonableness at first]], [[HopeSpot "forgiving" Ashley as long as there were other people around]] and then, once he had the two of them alone, vindictively turning on her and then mocking her when she burst into tears.

* Wrestling/{{Carlito C|olon}}aribbean Cool, during his then most recent feud against his enemy of thirteen years, Ray González, joined Juan Mauel Ortega's group that was put together to end Carlito's own family and The Revolucion dedicated to making sure he'd never be WWC Universal Champion again, used them to give what he thought was a CareerEndingInjury to González, went to Ray González's mini market to rearrange the merchandise, harassed Ray's son while he was at it, and then made a video of the whole thing so the audience could watch him watching it and laughing about it. The {{irony}} is that Carlito was so consumed by his desire to belittle Ray González that he didn't realize [[HeWhoFightsMonsters he basically became Ray González]] by doing everything [[BecameTheirOwnAntithesis that lead him to become a pro wrestler in the first place.]]

* Kuroto Dan/Kamen Rider Genm from ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'', despite being the man who put the planet at risk with the [[TheVirus Bugster Virus]], is largely motivated by equal parts spite and [[AGodAmI God complex]]. When his own ally Pallad turned on him in order to protect [[TheHero Emu Hojo]] out of his desire [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou to have a fair fight with the hero]], Dan responds by telling Emu [[spoiler:that he's PatientZero for the Bugster Virus]], hoping to kill him ''entirely'' to screw over Pallad. He considers himself the "one true Game Master" and thus whenever someone develops an "unauthorized" [[TransformationTrinket Gashat]], he sets out to destroy it with a vengeance. Then TheReveal of his StartOfDarkness makes it even worse, showing that he's had these attitudes since he was a young man, thanks to being a prodigy who helped design video games for his father's company. [[spoiler:Then one day, he got a fan letter from a little boy named Emu Hojo, who submitted his own ideas for a game. The idea that anyone else would '''dare''' try to step on his glory offended Kuroto so much that he sent Emu a prototype game infected with an early version of the Bugster Virus, all in the hopes that it would kill Emu.]]

** And even after everything he's done that would legitimately piss Anton off (namely putting a lot of buckshot on his leg), Llewelyn gets explicitly told that even if he had tried to avoid the whole mess he's in by giving Anton the money at the beginning, Anton ''still'' would have killed him just for having "inconvenienced" him.
