** Throughout the series, Daedric equipment tends to be very spiky. Daedric equipment is forged using [[FantasyMetals ebony]] which has been in some way imbued with the [[YourSoulIsMine souls]] of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]]. In each game where it is found, Daedric is typically the highest tier non-unique crafting material available. It is also the trademark gear of the Dremora, a sentient race of lesser Daedra typically found in service to [[OmnicidalManiac Mehrunes Dagon]], the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[PersonOfMassDestruction Destruction]] and one of the few Daedric Princes to be seen as [[GodOfEvil almost wholly evil]] by the denizens of Tamriel.

* Queen Ynci's armor in ''Discworld/LordsAndLadies'', although she wasn't a villain, being the Lancre version of Boudicca. She was very fond of spikes though. [[spoiler: Or probably would have been, had she not been entirely made up by a later king of Lancre who saw himself as a folk historian]].

** CardCarryingVillain Evil Harry Dread in ''Discworld/TheLastHero'' has spiked shoulderpads and a helmet with a spiked skull ''and'' spiky batwings, none of which really stops him looking like a middle manager in an accountancy firm or something.

The idea is to make sure the audience knows that this person or group is dangerous. Others might think [[EvilIsCool it just looks cool]]. Oddly enough, such spikes or blades are frequently [[PowerMakeover purely ornamental]]: despite the fact that they're sharp enough to pierce flesh, it's pretty rare for Spikes Of Villainy to be actually used in combat. (An exception to the ornamental rule is if spikes are found on [[TheSpiny a video game enemy]], in which case they stand a very good chance of foiling would-be [[GoombaStomp Goomba Stompers]].)

** Ogrim are yet another form of lesser Daedra, being [[GiantMook massive]] and as [[DumbMuscle dim-witted as they are strong]]. They too have spiky appearances (especially in ''Online'') and are near-universally hostile to mortals.
