* Zeke Sanders and his anti-augmentation terrorist group, Purity First, in ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution''. Being ordinary humans with crappy weapons and poor training in a game where you end up mostly fighting transhuman spec-ops [[PrivateMilitaryContractors PMCs]] does that to you.

* ''Film/{{Taken}}'' has the stalker that Bryan saves singer Sheerah from. He has a minute of screentime, but it's enough to demonstrate Bryan's all-around [[{{Badass}} badassery]] before the real plot kicks off.

** {{TeamFourStar}} made fun of this by measuring PowerLevels in Raditzes. They take it even further by using "Raditzes" as ''currency''. As in, "He owes me twenty Raditzes!" [[note]]This becomes even funnier in a HilariousInHindsight fashion as one of the ways to translate the title of the second Japanese Dragon Ball Z anime episode is "History's Greatest Warrior Is Goku's Older Brother". Considering Raditz could easily outfight both Goku and Piccolo, who had been established to be stronger than GOD (or rather A God, but the hierarchy would not be introduced until later) at this point, the ridiculous [[PowerCreepPowerSeep power creep]] of the series becomes even more apparent without any need for meta-jokes.[[/note]]

* ''Manga/YuGiOh'': Seto Kaiba. Not much more needs to be said. He was Yugi's first opponent (unless you count the one-shots who appeared in the previous chapters, but he's definitely the StarterVillain of the Duel Monsters anime) and the first confrontation between them started the biggest rivalry in the history of the franchise.

* ''Series/Flash2014'' The first Meta Human is some guy who eludes the police by making fog. He seems imposing at the time, but isn't even cool enough to get a codename, and once Flash gets going he has no trouble taking him down, and naturally said villain is never seen again.

** Similarly, [[spoiler: [[TragicMonster Yumiduka Satsuki]]]] in the Far Side routes, though she's an unusual example, since [[GenreShift most of the plot is]] PsychologicalHorror - she's mainly there to ensure that we don't forget the series is UrbanFantasy, and aren't offended when the plot ends with stabbing.

* Rider/Shinji [[DarkActionGirl Rider]], and to a lesser extent her summoner [[SmugSnake Shinji]], in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. [[spoiler:Except In the second route, as part of [[CompressedAdaptation getting the early stages of the first route over with quickly]], Rider is even killed offscreen. [[spoiler: This doesn't apply in Heavens Feel Feel, where it turns out she is ''not'' weak. At all.Rider survives to be a major heroic character.]]

** ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' opens with Bond assassinating terrorist-for-hire Marco Sciarra following an eventful chase through Mexico City that climaxes in a fight aboard a moving helicopter. Sciarra has a good deal more plot influence than the average starter villain, however, as a signet ring taken from his body and testimony from his abused TrophyWife lead Bond to [[EurekaMoment the realization]] that all his previous enemies - Le Chiffre, Mr. White, [[Film/QuantumOfSolace Dominic Greene]], [[Film/{{Skyfall}} Raoul Silva]], and the Quantum organization as a whole - had served [[TheManBehindTheMan the same master]]: [[spoiler: Ernst Stavro Blofeld]].
