* ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' has a straight version of this trope in the form of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. He outright murders former GCPD officer Brian Douglass (one of the vigilantes of Citizen For Batman), kills several known Gotham City cops and other law enforcement [[spoiler:including Commissioner Loeb and Rachel Dawes, and finally causes Dent to slid off the slope of sanity, leading to several more deaths, including Dent's own death]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'''s Ramsay Snow/Bolton outdoes his already terrifying book version, starting off by doing ''much'' worse to Theon Greyjoy than just killing him. He then nearly gets Theon's ActionGirl sister in season 4 (despite Ramsay being half-naked, ambushed and post-coital at the time) and personally smashes King Stannis' army in season 5. He only fully graduates to this trope is S6, though, when he remorselessly kills [[spoiler:his own father, stepmother and newborn baby brother. A couple of episodes later, he easily dispatches fan favourite Osha too.]] His kill count of unnamed characters is through the roof, and that's not even counting his offscreen destruction of the main characters' childhood home.

* Darkseid's AlternateCompanyEquivalent {{Thanos}} (pictured above). At one point he literally killed half the population of the universe including many superheroes. At another he literally killed the entire population of the universe including every superhero. [[spoiler: In fact, the conflict in ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'' is caused by him killing ComicBook/WarMachine.]]

* [=LeChuck=] from the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series. Though he plunders, tortures and even kills hundreds upon hundreds of people (and even forms his own skeletal army from these corpses), his plans to rule the entire Caribbean keep getting thwarted upon many defeats (and deaths) at the hands of the main protagonist Guybrush Threepwood. It is not until ''TalesOfMonkeyIsland'' that, [[spoiler:after spreading his own Pox on the entire Gulf of Melange (while becoming human himself), [=LeChuck=] proceeds to kill bounty huntress Morgan [=LeFlay=] by stabbing her with her own blade in Chapter 4, and then saves Guybrush's life from the gallows... only to kill him with the Cutlass of Kaflu later on in the chapter when all the Pox is absorbed from the entire Gulf of Melange into the legendary Esponja Grande, which [=LeChuck=] then uses to reabsorb the Voodoo powers back into himself and then, while using the power of his hypnotized monkeys, to gain his powers from the Crossroads and become the Pirate God capable of unleashing destruction upon the entire Carribean.]]

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': In chapter 10, [[spoiler:Keiko]] has to fight a [[EldritchAbomination Zeruel]] simulation. She reminds herself that, in spite of its ridiculous likeness, that monster was absolutely deadly.
-->Furthermore, this Angel, she had been told, had ripped through the Geo-Front, torn Unit 02 apart, forced Unit 00 into a suicidal attack and was ultimately stopped by Unit 01—eaten, as Maya put it. Keiko was horrified; it had taken three Evangelions to destroy it.
