** During the Buu saga, he makes this speech about how he ''wanted'' to go back to the days when he was a cold-hearted, ruthless brute who thought of nothing but causing pain and suffering to others. An episode earlier, when he [[spoiler:becomes Majin]], he proclaims to the Supreme Kai, "No! I am not innocent!" He knows he was an evil monster once and wishes to let that monster inside him lose again.

* Caster in ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia''. Her only goal during the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Holy Grail War]] was to find a way to live a normal life with her Master and husband Souichirou. She did some horrible things during the War, has lost very little sleep over them, and would do it again without issue if the need arose. Now things have calmed down, she's perfectly peaceful, if a bit possessive.

* Myrkul in ''VideoGame/{{Neverwinter Nights 2}}: [[ExpansionPack Mask of the Betrayer]]'', former god of the dead. Myrkul is encountered at the climax of the second act and gleefully confesses to his role as BiggerBad of the story; he has never directly opposed you at all (and indeed provides the advice needed for you to proceed), but everything that has happened to you up to that point (and will happen to you for the rest of the campaign) can be laid at his feet due to atrocities he committed centuries ago.

* In the live-action version of ''Series/TheTick,'' "The Terror" is an elderly old supervillain who was former buddies with Stalin. These days he's just a crazy old guy in a hospital whose antics amount to little more than throwing blood bags at Arthur. Considering Arthur's crappy level of fighting competence, that is actually a genuine challenge for him.

* Captain Teague in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'' is heavily implied to be one of these. The Brethren Court, who are all pretty badass Pirate Lords in their own right are scared by his mere appearance at the meeting, even though he immediately slumps down in the corner and absent-mindedly begins playing with a guitar. When one of them suggests not following the Code for the second time, one of his strings snaps and he looks up, terrifying them all into silence.
** He makes his appearance by shooting another pirate in cold blood.
*** Anyone capable of hitting someone in the chest from ''that'' far with a single-shot musket pistol would humble all around him.
