* Averted completely in FragileDreams: The BigBad, a MadScientist ghost named Shin, has [[ShockAndAwe electrokinesis]] as part of his PsychicPowers. He, however, is TheStoic, and never acts sadistically or without purpose. He also seems quite sane, except during his "words are meaningless" rants. [[spoiler:Once you discover [[MotiveRant what he means by that]], it's hard [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds not to feel for him]].]]

* Nikolai Dmitri Bulygin from ''AnarchyReigns'' is a cyborg with electricity powers, and the first thing we see him do is electrocute an innocent bartender robot for information. [[CaptainObvious He isn't exactly a nice guy.]]

* Electro from ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' was a nice guy, but he had voices in his head even ''before'' his accident, and an obsession with Spider-Man after the hero saved him once and gave him some kind words. When he gets his powers, he heads into the [[PowerIncontinence "panicking"]] stage, and when the cops start shooting and people pay more attention to Spidey than him...he doesn't take it well.

* ''Series/FlandersCompany'' has Carla Burnelle, TheHeavy from season 2, who possess lightning-based power. Since she usually is a FauxAffablyEvil, DangerouslyGenreSavvy [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch]] who work for a Clothes-producing company, you initially don't really expect her to be one, especially with {{Villain Protagonist}}s as the main cast. Then come the season finale, where [[LetSGetDangerous she is able to take down all the protagonists of her own]], and has no problem attempting to kill them. This goes even worst after her VillainousBreakdown at the end of season 3, causing her to come back in season 4 and attack the Flander's Company in a state of insane rage.

* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' brings us [[spoiler:Iris Sepperin]], who uses lightning attacks. And she [[VillainousBreakdown gets crazy]] and starts LaughingMad when she finally realizes that Spiritia [[spoiler:is actually Rosenkreuz's other reincarnation, the "Blade of Rosenkreuz"]].
* [[BigBad Lord Deus]] from ''AsurasWrath'' was probably the Regal version of a lightning user like this, like in Actual Folklore. Upon becoming the BigBad, however, He shows his real colors by acting like this to some extent, electrocuting Asura to death and throwing him out of heaven to Earth.

Added DiffLines:

* Kanden the bounty hunter, from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeHunters,'' uses a weapon called the shock coil, which fires bursts of electricity. He is also known for being a mentally unstable, and supposedly unkillable, living weapon of destruction.

* Averted in ''MortalKombat''. You'd expect this to happen to Raiden, TheObiWan of the series, when he becomes DarkerAndEdgier after blowing himself up, but he's much more calculated and intelligent than your usual Electro-villain.
** Well, there's the whole "defend Earthrealm or I'm going to fucking kill you" shtick he adopts...

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': Lord Hater is a somewhat downplayed example, in terms of psychopathy at least. He's not exactly a laughing, murderous maniac, but he ''is'' a would-be planetary conqueror with vicious, cruel tendencies and horrific temper. His electric powers, however, are definitely not downplayed; he is ''enormously'' powerful when he's properly riled up, being able to fight a villain that Curbstomped every other at once without a problem to a standstill, and even [[spoiler:one-shotting a planet-killing starship with an electric blast]].

* In TheThrawnTrilogy, the cloned Dark Jedi Master Joruus C'baoth uses mass mind control on most people, and Force Lightning on the rest. [[http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/286/blz23.jpg He is very unstable]].
