* ''AdventuresInOdyssey'' is largely a realistic show about realistic small-town problems, frequently more comedy than drama. It had a few forays into serious territory early on, whether it was an adaptation of a Bible story or a robbery... but when Dr. Blackgaard showed up, things ''changed''.

A Knight of Cerebus is very likely to be an [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]] [[LaserGuidedTykebomb trained for killing]], or even a blatant HeroKiller who posed actual threat, but also runs the risk of becoming a VillainSue. Arguably a subtrope of ThresholdGuardians. See also DeadSerious, NotSoHarmlessVillain. The show may ShooOutTheClowns first. Often, this results in a case of VileVillainSaccharineShow. When this kicks off CerebusSyndrome, his or her arrival is a GutPunch. Sometimes, this type of character, if bad enough, can be a CompleteMonster if they have no redeeming traits and do terrible things by the standards of history in an initially more lighthearted series.

* Similar to the above, the entrance of Bill Sykes near the beginning of Act II of ''Theatre/Oliver'' means the story gets ''much'' darker from that point on.

* A well-booked MonsterHeel usually qualifies, since they will steamroll face after face until someone puts them down. Well-known examples include Wrestling/{{Kane}}, Wrestling/BrockLesnar, Wrestling/MarkHenry since his 2011 FaceHeelTurn, and even Wrestling/BethPhoenix.

* Wrestling/KevinSteen was already a pretty dark character in his "wrestling's worst nightmare" persona, but then he came to NXT under the name Kevin Owens. He has since established himself as the [[TheSociopath darkest]], [[AxCrazy cruelest]], [[ManipulativeBastard most heartless]] heel in NXT's young history- injuring anyone who he doesn't like, damn near killing his former best friend Wrestling/SamiZayn, and generally asserting himself as someone who does not give a damn about who or what he breaks on his way to the top.
** Case in point, he vowed to beat Wrestling/JohnCena at ''Elimination Chamber 2015'' and he kept his promise, not only throwing everything he got, but also got a '''CLEAN''' win over Cena, which very few in the WWE have managed to do.

*** What makes it worse? The above [[KnightOfCerebus Knights of Cerebus]] are [[HorrifyingTheHorror SCARED]] of the Tyranids. Because they have the power to completely block out The Warp.

->''That was a very abstract, almost avant-garde episode with Q and what he was trying to prove with the ''Enterprise'', telling Picard to be aware because there are some bad-asses out there that you're not prepared for no matter what you think. This is just a lesson to you to keep your eyes and ears open because there are things out there that you don't understand, and here's an example.''

** Then came the [[OutsideContextVillain Tyranids]]. In their very first attack, they crippled the most well respected Space Marines in the galaxy. In their second, it took both the Eldar AND Humanity working together just to gain a PyrrhicVictory over them. And their third assault STILL hasn't been stopped, [[GodzillaThreshold despite the sacrifice of billions upon billions of humans]]. Every time a Hive Fleet has appeared, the races of the galaxy have had to cross the GodzillaThreshold in order to stop it. EVERY Hive Fleet is treated as an apocalyptic event for the galaxy and these are just the ''[[UpToEleven scouting fleets]]'', the main force isn't even here yet. While every other Race has spent millenia fighting over one galaxy, the Tyranids are implied to have consumed MULTIPLE. This is just their next meal.

* [[BigBad Makuta]] from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' started out [[EvilOverlord menacing enough]], but his constant defeats and failures gradually robbed him of his credibility. After the original head of the Story Team left, the character of Makuta underwent a serious retcon, which resulted in him turning into a [[TheChessmaster calculating]] mastermind who had [[XanatosGambit planned his victory]] from the start, turned out to be the GreaterScopeVillain behind a lot of former villains, and by the end of the story arc, ended up ''[[TheBadGuyWins winning]]''.
