* Decado in the ''Literature/{{Drenai}}'' saga, until he's persuaded to join [[WarriorMonk The Thirty]]. Or rather, he has an epiphany moment where he realises that he's a murderer: his rationale is that because he's just that good, his enemies have always been defenceless.

* In ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'', [[spoiler:Charles Fischer]] came back from a future in which he helped the machines to understand humans by torturing them to get inside their heads. He claims that he was sent back to the past as a reward for his services, and doesn't do anything particularly malicious. [[spoiler: Subverted at the end when it's revealed that he accessed a computer system at his younger self's place of work in order to aid [=SkyNet=].]]

Added DiffLines:

* After Nappa is brought BackFromTheDead in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', he gives up the Saiyan lifestyle to become a Hollywood producer. He's no less of a jerk, though - in ''Dead Zone Abridged'' he swindles Krillin out of royalties, and a t-shirt ad shows posters for ''Film/{{Pixels}}'' and ''Film/FantasticFour2015'' outside his office, implying he produced them.

* Franz Bonaparta from ''Anime/{{Monster}}''.
** Hard to say, since, by the end of it, he was [[spoiler:depicted as something of an [[TheAtoner atoner]]]].
** Hartmann probably fits this description well...

-->'''Atomic Flounder:''' What?! Get off of me! If I weren't retired, I'd, I'd... [roars, releasing atomic energy at Barnacle Boy and leaving his head glowing red from radiation before it goes up in a miniature mushroom cloud, leaving it charred] ...do that.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': The Atomic Flounder was once one of Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy's arch-enemies. He's retired from committing acts of felony but is still as evil as he was before.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Eleventh Doctor's friend, Madame Vastra, a female Silurian who escaped suspension into VictorianBritain. When we see her, she's living happily with her [[InterspeciesRomance human lover/maid and eventual wife]]. Before that, though, she was apparently stalking the London Underground and [[ToServeMan eating the workmen]]. Even now, she hasn't entirely shaken off her fondness for human flesh, idly commenting on having eaten UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar "A Good Man Goes To War"]]

* Loki the God of Destruction (maybe... he is kinda crazy) in ''Fanfic/LokiAgentOfDoomgard'' invoked CrazyHomelessPeople, because he found it an easy way to go unrecognized and be left alone, as it's kind of hard to retire from being an evil god otherwise.

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', Slappy Squirrel is, herself, a RetiredBadass, and a lot of villains from her old cartoons are still around, the most prominent ones being Benny the Bison, Sid the Squid, and especially Walter Wolf. While technically retired, they still hatch an occasional plan to get even with her - often with disastrous and humiliating results. (For them.)
