** Humanoid: Humanity. No, seriously, these guys [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters are the villains]] ''way'' more often than anyone else. Similarly, the few evil Dwarves, Vampires etc that turn up.

*** The Necrons are Eldritch in that they're essentially silent, undead robots with access to [[HigherTechSpecies technology that seems almost magical]] by other species' standards. Previous editions showed them as deathly silent, soulless machines that killed off or abducted human populations for no discernible reason, and their goals were pretty opaque. Since then, they have been expanded upon (although some would say retconned) to be [[SpaceRomans ancient space Egyptians]], with their leaders retaining the ability to speak, with their dynasties alternatingly trying to restore their empire or running experiments to return to flesh and blood bodies.

** Savage: The [[MultiArmedandDangerous Shokan]] and [[BladeBelowTheShoulder Tarkata]] both fit. In essence, the larger and [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor reasonable]] Shokan are Warcraft Orcs, while the animalistic Tarkata are Tolkien Orcs.
** Eldritch: The [[{{Hell}} Netherrealm]]'s demons. Whether monstrous ogres, like [[{{Youkai}} Moloch]] or intelligent sorcerers, like [[{{Necromancer}} Quan Chi]], most demons are evil.
** Humanoid: [[{{Cyborg}} cyborgs]] are noteworthy because they're ''especially'' hostile Humanoids and rely on tech, not magic (like most heroic human Kombatants). [[JustifiedTrope The cyborg creation process often screws with the soul/brain]], though even characters with mere bionic upgrades tend to be ruthless.
** Fallen: Edenians fill the role of typical fantasy Elves, with millennia-long lifespans, magical talent and impossible beauty. Evil Edenians are always manipulative and arrogant enough to fit the Fallen bill.
** Crafty: [[LizardFolk Saurians]] are a dying race who tend to hide in--and strike from--the shadows using their camouflage and shapeshifting abilities. While not really [[UglyCute cute]], they do tend to be [[TheWoobie pitiable]].

** Fallen: [[VampireTheRequiem The classic bloodsuckers]], and Mages. Seers of the latter game especially, since they deliberately chose to spurn the social good in favor of their own lives, and play the entire world like a harp in service to the Exarchs and to ensure their own livelihoods. [[TabletopGame/MummyTheCurse Arisen]] also qualify here more than Eldritch, being immortal citizens of a cruel and ancient [[TheEmpire empire]] who weave schemes and cults throughout history to mold the world into their desires.
