* ''[[RepoTheGeneticOpera Repo! The Genetic Opera]]'' has Luigi and Pavi, brothers stated to be a murderer and a rapist, respectively. While we see Luigi stab several people to death, all the girls we see with Pavi are quite willing. This could be because while violence is always fun, it's ''really'' hard to joke about rape. * Frank Miller for most of ''HighNoon''. The hero Kane threw him in prison for unspecified charges before the start of the film, but Miller gets pardoned and decides to take revenge on Kane. Kane runs around town insisting that Miller is a menace to them all, but people refuse to stand with him. Some even sympathize with Miller and insist that Kane is trying to drag them into a personal feud. When Miller finally arrives, he sports some [[GoodScarsEvilScars evil scars]] to prove his villainy, but he still doesn't do anything except go after Kane.

Cut natter.
** It's arguable that we do at least see the results of the OffstageVillainy--it's hard to imagine Pavi's flesh masks came from willing donors. Plus the first time he meets Shilo, he's creepy to the point of Luigi actually trying to rescue her from him. ''Luigi!''

* [[TheWarOfEarthlyAggression The United Earth Directorate]] in ''Franchise/StarCraft''. Canonically, they are a ruthless dictatorship who abolished cultural ethnicity and religion on Earth, banished 400 millions human in space for being considered "undesirable" and came to the Koprulu Sector with the intention of enslaving or eradicating the Zerg and Protoss. Unfortunately, [[AllThereInTheManual very little of this is actually shown in-game]], and all we get to see in their ''Brood War'' campaign is them trying to enslave the Zerg (who at this point were AlwaysChaoticEvil) and [[KickTheSonOfABitch beating the crap out of Arcturus Mengsk, one of the most reviled characters in the franchise]]. This has caused plenty of fans to [[RootingForTheEmpire root for them]], and not understand why the heroic characters chose to form an EnemyMine with the much more ObviouslyEvil [[DarkActionGirl Sarah Kerrigan]] to fight them.

* The police, military and MegaCorp from the Rockstar game ''State of Emergency'' are said to be oppressing the populace, but never shown doing anything particularly heinous to ordinary citizens. The only aggression we see from them is their efforts to stop ''[[DesignatedHero you]]'' from murdering panicked citizens or blowing up restaurants and storefronts which, thanks to the very slapdash backstory, are suggested to be, like, really ''evil'' restaurants and storefronts, or something.

-->'''''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation''''': Yeah, any governing body that calls itself "The Authority" probably aren't distributing free t-shirts to war widows, but I wish the game would ''establish'' that rather than just ask me to assume it.

* ''Fanfic/AnotherRealm'': [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Xerol Shaaryak]] built his enterprise on Illium through [[RuthlessForeignGangsters nefarious means]], evident by his employing of asari commandos, and the no small measure of respect he gets from the underground. These acts are heavily implied to have been violent, particularly in batarian circles.

* Subverted in EliezerYudkowsky's [[http://yudkowsky.net/other/fiction/the-sword-of-good The Sword of Good]], in which the in-universe DesignatedVillain, the [[AGodAmI Lord of Darkness]], [[spoiler:turns out to be trying to gain Unlimited Power so that he can fix the broken world and save the countless innocents who are suffering and dieing under the existing "balance" between "good and evil". Said Lord of Darkness actually asks TheHero to touch him with the titular Sword of Good, which ''kills'' anyone with bad intentions, in the final moments before he ascends.
