* Preacher in the ''TwistedMetal'' games. However, as he is loath to admit, he's not an ordained minister -- no church would accept him. He's murderous, and like almost every other player character in ''Black'', he was interned at Blackfield Asylum prior to the events of the game. He believes a demon lives inside of him, forcing him to kill; [[spoiler:turns out he's just schizophrenic]].

* The warmongering, terrorist Reverend Steve Newland of ''TrueBlood''.
* There's one episode of ''MidsomerMurders'' where the murderer is the local priest, responsible for three murders. The reason for this is that (unbeknownst to his wife and the rest of the village) he'd had a kid some 20 years earlier with an unmarried woman, and said kid had died (in order to join a "club", the members made him stand tiptoe on a chair with a noose around his neck while they went off for a smoke). When one of the victims thought he was dying, he confessed to the priest, who decapitated one, burned another alive, and arrowed the last through the back. Quite a normal {{backstory}} for a resident of Midsomer County.

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

* The title character of ''Literature/ElmerGantry'', although he's portrayed more as merely slick and self-deluded than as "pure evil."

* Donato Porpora from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', a Catholic Priest that ran an orphanage. While beloved by the children, in reality he would use their "adoptions" to cover up murdering and ''[[ChildEater eating]]'' them. When his adopted son discovered the truth, he abandoned the ruse and went on to become an infamous killer of children and [[TheHunter Ghoul Investigators]] before being captured. As a prisoner in Cochlea, he serves as an informant and offers priestly counsel to [[AmnesiacHero Haise]] about his emotional problems. After his escape, he resumes wearing the robes and even wields a [[ShapeshifterWeapon kagune]] formed from CreepyCoolCrosses.
