* In ''Fanfic/BreakItDownButterfly'', as soon as Gabriel loses his miraculous, the Peacock Miraculous is activated and its user goes on a rampage. Understandably, everyone thinks she is just another akumatized civilian.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemBlazingSword'' one of the bosses you face is a light magic user by the name of Kenneth an ex-bishop who denies the existence of all gods.
** The "evil bishop" character archetype has been in use for a while. In ''Path of Radiance,'' Oliver uses light magic exclusively and is probably one of the most repulsive villains in the game.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemBlazingSword'' the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series:
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThracia776'' have the Deadlord Canis, a zombie who specializes in light magic. In ''Thracia 776'', if [[spoiler:Sara]] is killed or not recruited, her corpse is used to create Canis.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'' has the minor bosses Orlo, Windham, and Martel, all Bishops. Orlo in particular is a SinisterMinister who believes that anything he does can be excused since he serves the gods.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'',
one of the bosses you face is a light magic user by the name of Kenneth Kenneth, an ex-bishop who denies the existence of all gods.
** The "evil bishop" character archetype In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', Riev is clearly this trope. Despite that he obviously ''looks'' evil, has been in use excommunicated from his country for practicing demon worship, and is TheDragon to the BigBad, when you fight him both times (one of which is actually optional), he uses Aura, a while. high level light magic tome.

*** It's worth noting that Oliver undergoes a... [[HazyFeelTurn sort-of-]]HeelFaceTurn in ''Radiant Dawn'', wherein he joins Ike and instead ''defends'' the Herons. Essentially, he's a JokeCharacter, really, and this doesn't [[KarmaHoudini exactly excuse him from the stuff he did]]. Meanwhile, the other Begnion senators fit this trope a lot better, especially Lekain. The only exception is Hetzel, who thinks the Begnion senators passed the MoralEventHorizon but was [[DirtyCoward too afraid]] to step up and fight against them.

* ''{{Literature/Touch}}'' has Father, a pretty thoroughly creepy man standing in the lead of a brainwashed cult/criminal empire. His power? Happiness aura.

** In ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', Paladins have Divine Shield (a barrier of positive energy that makes them invulnerable) and Devotion Aura (strengthens the resolve of nearby units, increasing their armor). The other unit with those spells? The [[MonsterLord Bandit Lord]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Played with with Rose Quartz. She has healing powers and a GreenThumb, [[HeroWithBadPublicity but from Homeworld's perspective]], she's the greatest traitor in Gemkind's history, having brutally murdered her own Diamond, an act by Gem standards comparable to killing one's own mother, queen and arguably goddess at the same time. [[spoiler: Later revelations would clear her of the act, but would still paint her as being dangerously naive and horribly irresponsible.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Rose Quartz may have had healing powers, but from Homeworld's perspective, she was the greatest criminal in gemkind's history. She started a massive rebellion and killed a Diamond, who are revered as mother/queen/goddess figures by the majority of the population. [[spoiler: Revelations in season 4 suggest that the shattering of Pink Diamond was actually a frame job, though everyone, even her own side, believed she did it.]]

* Endeavor from ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has a powerset (control of fire and super strength) that one would usually associate with a hero. While he acts like a hero to the public, behind closed doors hes an awful person; he saves people purely to [[AttentionWhore stroke his fragile ego]], is horribly abusive to his wife and children (to the point that he drove the former into insanity), and cares about no one except himself.

*** Villainous priests and bishops in the Fire Emblem games tend to be "skewed" iterations of the classic healer, switching out normal light magic for variations that steal HP, or poison. They also use Berserk or Sleep staves rather than healing ones.
