*** Subverted post-''Siege'', where Loki gets sick of being a cackling villain and decides to reinvent himself as a LovableRogue. He's a god of lies and mischief, but there's no reason he has to stick with the Evil bit.

* Morgoth in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion''. Though really, he bears more similarities to {{Satan}} than he does a polytheistic God of Evil, being the former servant of Eru Ilúvatar, the actual {{God}} of the setting, who generally doesn't interfere in the temporal world. Still, Morgoth essentially invented the concept of evil because of his malign influence when him and his fellow celestials helped the creator in making the world. He will continue to exist AsLongAsThereIsEvil, and since the world itself is the source of all evil because of him, he cannot die unless the world is unmade. Then in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', Sauron ''tries'' to ascend to this level, but is more of a ''demi''god of evil.

** The elves in general view Lorkhan, the god who initially came up with the idea to create the universe, to be a god of malicious evil and trickery, as they hold that prior to the creation of the universe their souls were all glorious immortal spirits, and the world they live in now is a prison in which their spirits are trapped in a perpetual cycle of reincarnation. That Lorkhan seems to protect and guide humanity, who are perpetual enemies of the elves, only affirms this belief. Other elves, most notably the Dunmer, hold that Lorkhan is indeed an evil god, but his deceptions and trickery exposed the "lies" of the Aedra, the gods that most of the rest of the world revere, and thus they view Lorkhan as a god of [[NecessarilyEvil necessary evils]].

* Odium, the GreaterScopeVillain of ''Literature/TheCosmere'', is [[spoiler:a shard of the dead creator god Adonalsium]] and, essentially, a force of living hatred. He plans to [[spoiler:murder all his fellow Shards in order to become the supreme deity of the entire Cosmere]]. His pass times include creating [[EldritchAbomination cosmic horrors]] and roving about the Cosmere, indirectly causing chaos everywhere he goes. Horrifically, [[spoiler:he's [[SubvertedTrope a subversion]]; according to Odium himself, he's actually the Shard of ''passion and emotion'', not evil. He's the only Shard that actually understands how mortals feel and think, with the others having BlueAndOrangeMorality. Though it could be argued that Odium has ''become'' a God of Evil through his actions.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'': Some versions of Unicron have him as one of these (or treated as one by anything unfortunate enough to be in his path). His very first origin story had Unicron recounting how he led a legion of dark gods, with Primus as his opposing number. The second has him as the ''last'' dark god, trying (and succeeding) in taking the universe down with him. Most depictions since have him as Primus' direct opposite, the evil to Primus' good (if not necessarily nice).

* In the backstory for ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', we have The Dark One, a goblin warlord and DarkMessiah who -- upon his death -- was [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence elevated to godhood]] by the [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly belief]] of his followers (specifically, after they went on a year-long slaughter in his name). [[TheDragon Red]][[AntiVillain cloak]] is his high priest.

* ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has several contenders for the title, but the sanest and most focused is [[ManipulativeBastard Tlacolotl]], an ancient mortal warlord who managed to ascend to godhood by seizing the death and rebirth of an entire universe in his own megalomaniacal name. He ''requires'' his followers to do evil and is thus ironically just as bound to the notion of Good and Evil as his angelic archrival [[KnightTemplar Namm]]. Tlacolotl's real personality and goals are loathsome enough that he's become totally reliant on goodly moral systems to brand people as Evil (thus leaving him as their [[DarkMessiah only refuge]]) in order to secure recruits for his forces.

* Gyphon from ''{{Mithgar}}'' is both the overarching BigBad of the series and its primary God of Evil. Specifically, he represents tyranny, since he holds to the belief that the strong should use their powers to control the weak and in fact opposed giving mortals (and non-divine immortals) free will in the first place. Other, lesser Gods of Evil who follow him are namedropped occasionally, but none of them ever do anything directly and very little is ever revealed about them.
