* ''Anime/PatemaInverted'': Izamura's reign has religious overtones, as he's the only one in the Agian government to dress in clerical robes and enforces the propaganda of the inverts as being "sinners". But he's also a subversion in that he's so ObviouslyEvil, that it's a wonder how anyone can possibly think his intentions are good ones. The man [[PsychoticSmirk is batshit insane]], [[DrunkWithPower high on his own power]], and [[ItsAllAboutMe clearly self-serving.]] He even ordered [[spoiler:the death of Age's father, for having contacted a member of the "inverts" and daring to want to explore the sky. Then had Lagos captured and killed and [[DeadGuyOnDisplay keeps his dead body preserved in a stasis chamber]]]]. Thankfully, he meets a [[KarmicDeath karmic end.]]

* Kirei Kotomine in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Though he doesn't really use his status to influence others, he's got all the other trappings of this, being a Catholic priest and a stone-cold [[TheSociopath sociopath]].



* Kotomine Kirei of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', whose appearance and [[Creator/JojiNakata voice actor]] practically screams 'sinister' despite being the overseer of the Grail War and Rin's guardian -- [[spoiler:and sure enough, he ends up as the BigBad of the first route, the one responsible for much of the grief in the second, as well as being the FinalBoss in the third, even though in this route he is not as evil as in the previous routes]]. In ''LightNovel/FateZero'', [[spoiler:he also usurps several stronger villains and ends up as the BigBad yet again]].
** As detailed in ''Heaven's Feel'', his entire reason for becoming a priest was [[spoiler:to try and live a good life in spite of his own twisted psyche. He hoped that by doing good he would become good, but realized he was simply too broken when he witnessed his wife's death... and only regretted not being responsible for it. [[DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife He really wants to know why]] God [[BeingGoodSucks cre]][[BeingEvilSucks ated]] [[EvilFeelsGood him]].]]

* Valeria Trifa from ''VisualNovel/DiesIrae'' initially comes of as a harmless bumbling friendly priest who CantHoldHisLiquor. However that impression doesn't last long as it becomes apparent that he is quite the schemer, working to aid [[BigBad Reinhard]]. [[spoiler:At least, that is how it initially appears. In actuality he is TheStarscream, trying to wreck the plan in order to protect his surrogate daughter Rea. However he has become so twisted that he is practically trying do Reinhard's plan over and over again on a smaller scale, and is even trying to become Reinhard himself. All stemming from a deranged obsession with repenting for his sins from back when he was just a kindly priest that was gauded into killing the children he cared for]].

* Dante and Virgil encounter many corrupt clergymen in the Sixth Circle of Hell in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''. (To put this simply, Dante ''despised'' such people, and the punishment he portrayed them as suffering was horrid, to say the least.)

* Dante and Virgil encounter many corrupt clergymen in the Sixth Circle of Hell in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''. (To put this simply, Dante ''despised'' such people, and the punishment he portrayed them as suffering was horrid, to say the least.)) There's even a section of Hell for corrupt clergy, where they are placed upside down in holes resembling baptismal fonts and have their feet burnt in a parody of baptism. Dante's ArchEnemy Boniface VIII, a notoriously power-hungry Pope who was largely responsible for Dante's exile, is mentioned to be destined for this area of Hell even though the poem is set before his death.



** Septon Utt is a priest of the Faith of the Seven as well as a mercenary and a notorious serial killer of little boys
** Melisandre is a Red Priestess of R'hllor, a fire god. She's pretty ruthless and has a number of fire related powers, though she does have morals and is simply convinced that what she's doing is for the greater good.
** Aeron Damphair is a priest of the Drowned God of the Iron Islands. He's extremely zealous in a religion that advocates drowning unbelievers and pillaging the mainland.

good. WordOfGod has called her the most misunderstood character in the series, partially as she is right about an evil power that could destroy humanity to the north of Westeros, and is not acting out of a desire for power.
** Aeron Damphair is a priest of the Drowned God of the Iron Islands. He's extremely zealous in a religion that advocates drowning unbelievers and pillaging the mainland. It becomes more tragic considering [[spoiler:his POVs reveal he was sexually abused by his monstrous [[BigBrotherBully older brother]] Euron Greyjoy, who is clearly the most evil member of the Greyjoys]].

* In ''Creator/HBeamPiper'''s "Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen", the High Priest of Styphon's House (and supposedly most of his top underlings) are this. As is stated in the author's description of him "He had no belief in Styphon or any other god. If he had, he wouldn't be in his current position". Styphon's House starts and stops wars, dictates terms to everybody, and generally rules the entire area ruthlessly and without care for anything except their own power and wealth.

Contrast NunTooHoly, a trope about genuinely good members of the clergy who somehow continue to hold their offices despite being hugely [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold obnoxious]] or [[LovableSexManiac depraved]], in a lovable way. If the villain is merely ''pretending'' to be a priest or nun, then that's BadHabits. If at least one of the things that makes the minister "sinister" is that fact that he molests children, then you're dealing with a PedophilePriest. For a priest that is simply a lecher, see DirtyOldMonk. See also the ChurchgoingVillain, who does not necessarily ''have'' to be a religious leader.
