* The Franchise/MarvelUniverse has many villains, some pretty darn bad, but ComicBook/RedSkull trumps all of them. A surviving member of the original Nazi party and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's ArchEnemy, he is without a doubt the most despicable, amoral, pure evil character in possibly all of comics. Possessed of all the worst traits of Marvel's sundry villainous characters and none of their redeeming features, he is reviled [[EvenEvilHasStandards even by other villains]], especially ComicBook/{{Magneto}} and ComicBook/DoctorDoom; even ''ComicBook/TheJoker'' (in a DC vs Marvel crossover) hates his guts. By any measure, that's a whole other level of bad. Consequently, few things are as [[CatharsisFactor cathartic]] as seeing Captain America beat the ever-loving snot out of him ([[spoiler:and there's something awesome, yet scary, in that he finds out the hard way that his plan to RetCon Rogers into being EvilAllAlong had GoneHorriblyRight when he pulls an EvilerThanThou, takes over HYDRA and '''kills him''' in the prelude to ''Secret Empire''.]]

* When Amber's father is introduced in ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}},'' we only know of what a complete asshole he was through Amber at his funeral. In ''DumbingOfAge,'' you'll want to punch the screen every time he appears and demonstrates his mastery of [[AbusiveParents parental abuse]] (lampshaded by the author, who mentions that saying he also parks in handicapped spaces would make him cartoonishly evil).

* ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'': In Act 6, [[spoiler:Aranea puts on a show of being nice and courteous, but is actually a GloryHound KnightTemplar who thinks that she's the only one who can stop [[BigBad Lord English]] because she's smarter than everyone else. Of course, she isn't; her plan spectacularly backfires and causes everything to go wrong for almost everyone. Roxy chews her out for her [[SmugSnake smug]] attitude and behavior, Dirk briefly [[YourSoulIsMine rips out her soul]], and the Condesce strangles and kills her.]]

* Subtly set up and then [[ChekovsGun set off]] with Getaway in ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye.'' Originally introduced as another wacky {{Sixth Ranger}} {{Lancer}} for the core cast, they slowly set up his more unsettling tendencies over the course of several issues, giving him a discomforting WifeHusbandry subtext with [[TheIngenue Tailgate]] before pushing into the distressing reveal that he's a {{Sociopath}}ic Knight Templar, dedicated to making Decepticons pay for their crimes...including a [[HeelFaceTurn reformed]] ''Megatron,'' who's now co-captain of the Lost Light. He doesn't hesitate to play on Tailgate's needs for affection and validation as a catspaw to try and make Megatron lash out, not caring if the Minibot were to be killed in the process (and actually hoping for it, to justify Megatron's subsequent execution). He later abandons the core cast on a planet at the mercy of TheDreaded [[SecretPolice Decepticon Justice Division]] all to get Megatron killed in some form or fashion as punishment for his not-inconsiderable crimes--again, without worrying if the other Autobots survive because, well, they supported Megatron, they must deserve it. Quite a few fans actually LoveToHate him because he is one of the most ruthlessly competent and morally gray (if not outright evil) Autobots we've actually ever seen in the franchise--other openly evil Autobots are usually complete nutters like Flame, or MirrorUniverse equivalents of our heroes.

* Invoked by [[WebAnimation/TheAutisticWorldOfTheAutist Imaginee]], the [[CardCarryingVillain self-proclaimed "evilest being imaginable"]], who goes out of his way to be as evil as possible, which mostly involves MindRape, giving superheroes a FateWorseThanDeath and [[KillTheCutie beating a puppy Roobert likes to death]] ([[NotQuiteDead well, almost to death]]). Out of universe, it's more like LoveToHate.

* In that vein, the ComicBook/XMen have a lot of foes fans love to hate which were likely thought up with this in mind. [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain The Friends of Humanity]] are often viewed by fans the same way most folks do TheKlan, while [[ANaziByAnyOtherName the government of Genosha]] was even worse. In fact, many such anti-mutant hate groups have appeared throughout the comic's history, often to give [[AntiVillain Mag]][[WellIntentionedExtremist neto]] and his Brotherhood someone to clash with while [[PayEvilUntoEvil being the sympathetic parties]].

* ''My Little Pony'' fanfics by [[Creator/RalphHayesJR RealityCheck]], even those without a specific overarching BigBad, every so often feature a small-time bad guy who acts in the most obnoxious and unsympathetic way possible, makes the heroes' life harder, then is promptly punished via a HumiliationConga. For example, ''Fanfic/TheGreatAlicornHunt'' includes some [[SpoiledBrat spoiled noble kids]] who bully the Cutie Mark Crusaders and are punished by being forced to work at Applejack's farm, as well as Windy City's ObstructiveBureaucrat of a mayor.

* One recurring element of the ''My Little Pony'' fanfics by [[Creator/RalphHayesJR RealityCheck]], even those without a specific overarching BigBad, every so often feature RealityCheck]] is the appearance of a small-time bad guy (often a haughty aristocrat with a disdain for the "lower classes") who acts in the most obnoxious and unsympathetic way possible, makes the heroes' life harder, miserable, then is promptly thoroughly punished via a HumiliationConga. HumiliationConga within a chapter or two. For example, ''Fanfic/TheGreatAlicornHunt'' includes some [[SpoiledBrat spoiled noble kids]] who bully the Cutie Mark Crusaders and are punished by being forced to work at Applejack's farm, as well as farm. Another example from the same story is Windy City's incompetent, corrupt ObstructiveBureaucrat of a mayor.
