* 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.

* Wrestling/TheUndertaker's Wrestling/MinistryOfDarkness. They crucified and hung their enemies, kidnapped women, brainwashed midcarders, made blood pacts in the middle of the ring... only infighting and The Undertaker getting injured put an end to them.

->''"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."''

A Knight of Cerebus is very likely to be an [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]] [[LaserGuidedTykebomb trained for killing]], or even a blatant HeroKiller who poses an actual threat, but also runs the risk of becoming an InvincibleVillain. They also tend to be the trigger of TheWorfEffect against the hero. Arguably a subtrope of ThresholdGuardians. See also DeadSerious, NotSoHarmlessVillain when a villain starts as ridiculous but, because of some changes, ends up becoming this. The show may ShooOutTheClowns first. Often, this results in a case of VileVillainSaccharineShow when the setting itself contrasts heavily with the character's grimness. 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.

They also tend to be the trigger of TheWorfEffect against the hero. They may also be the ArchEnemy as they might have a strong personal tie to the hero or heroes of the work. Arch-enemies are usually distinguished from the other villains as perhaps being [[EvilerThanThou worse]], [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil stronger]], or more [[ItsPersonal personally]] tied to the protagonists. It could even be the night of cerberus quality that makes the villian an arch-enemy. Arguably a subtrope of ThresholdGuardians.

This villain's arrival is usually heralded by a sudden downturn in humor (although if the villain in question is [[LaughablyEvil amusing in their own right]], expect it to turn into BlackComedy), to show the audience this guy means business. In other words, a catalyst for a drastic change in mood toward the dark and dramatic.There are examples of characters who take the story to darker territory without being villainous in the slightest, but this trope is reserved for evil creatures. Grim-dark shows and stories that take place in a CrapsackWorld are much less susceptible to this kind of influence since it is really hard to stand out as the darkest when everyone is really dark, but even they have exceptions when the plot is [[BlackComedy comedic even in a dark way]] and the character in question is on an entirely different level of terrifying and serious. This isn't only about the character himself, it is also about his relation to the story.
