** Also during the Universal Survival arc, we have [[spoiler:Jiren of Universe 11. Universe 11's team as a whole is a SuperTeam, set on the ideals of justice. ''Jiren'', however seems to be Universe 11's TokenEvilTeammate. He shows no mercy towards the Universe 7 team, he mocks Android 17 for his HeroicSacrifice, and by extension, mocks Goku and Vegeta for relying on said sacrifice. He doesn't care about his Pride Trooper compatriots and openly mocks their leader once he gets knocked out. And he even tries kill all of Goku's friends and family just to prove that he doesn't need friends for power. However, this is only consistent in the anime, whereas the [[Manga/DragonBallSuper manga]] and [[VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2 Xenoverse]] tend to bring him under AdaptationalNiceGuy.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/AngelaAnaconda'': Angela can come off as this, as her {{Imagine Spot}}s all involve brutalizing or even killing [[AlphaBitch Nanette Manoir]] in the most brutal ways possible (even via ''cannibalism'' once!). Nanette herself, while obnoxiously conceited, hardly does anything even close to warranting such hostility.

* Warren Hidler and the Blood Order Theriomorphs in ''Literature/TheriomorphChronicles'' is nothing but composed of it. They disturbingly overlap with KidHero, NominalHero and UnscrupulousHero, siding on the [[ALighterShadeOfBlack extreme dark grey]] compared to [[NebulousEvilOrganization Megiddo]] and their [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Theriomorphs]] and [[{{Main/Mooks}} Minions]]

** There's also the main character of the franchise, [[BloodKnight Goku]], however, this tends to be [[ZigZaggingTrope zig zagged]], as in the original Dragon Ball, Goku only cared about fighting, and saving the planet was really only a consequence of his love of fighting. [[Anime/DragonBallZ Z]] tended to place him under AdaptationalNiceGuy, however, [[Anime/DragonBallSuper Super]] places him back into this trope.

** In ''Manga/DragonBallSuper'', during the Universal Survival arc, we have [[spoiler: Frieza, to the ''extreme''. He's only working with the Universe 7 team, because Goku promised Frieza another chance at life. Frieza's ''first'' question when asked for this was "Can I kill them?" and when he was denied that (due to Tournament rules), he settled for ColdBloodedTorture.]]

** We have Piccolo during the Saiyan saga. The original reason he decides to help against Vegeta and Nappa is because if they [[EvilVsOblivion destroy the Earth, he won't be able to rule it]]. However, at the end of said arc, Piccolo pulls a full HeelFaceTurn and sacrifices himself for Gohan.

** During the Namek saga, Vegeta becomes a TokenEvilTeammate for Krillin, Gohan, Bulma, Piccolo and Goku, as he's only helping them so he can gain immortality. However, when that's thrown out the window, he fights to avenge his race. Even ''after'' the Namek arc, he's still a bit of a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] due to his [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Saiyan tendencies]], and it's not until he pulls a HeroicSacrifice against Buu that he drops the "sociopath" part.
