*For ''WesternAnimation/{{StevenUniverse}}'', there's the Corrupted Gems, who act as Monsters of the Week for much of the show's first season, but are relatively tame compared to the later threat of the Homeworld Gems, and Peridot, who, despite being very formidable and a sign of bad things to come, is a fairly weak Gem and when cornered is defeated easily.

** Though this wasn't always the case. Devimon was supposed to be the show's FinalBoss with it ending at 13 episodes. The show proved popular enough that more episodes were ordered, and as a result, Devimon's villain status was lowered.

A Subtrope of ArcVillain, the Starter Villain ranks the lowest on the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil (the heroes have to start off fighting ''someone''). He is the first true threat to the heroes, not just some common {{Mook}} who's there to let them show how badass they are. Expect even the weakest member of the heroic team to eventually become more powerful than him (that is, if he survives). The Starter Villain is not always associated with the intended BigBad of the whole series, usually having a whole story arc to himself.

himself. If the overall {{antagonist}} is TheEmpire in a setting with some degree of GreyAndGrayMorality; the StarterVillain is some EvilIsPetty bureaucrat who, in getting TheHero to oppose them; makes TheEmpire oppose them (and vice-versa) on principle.

* Neersighted Jeego the hitman from ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' is the primary threat in the first chapter, as it focuses on preventing him from murdering Lynne. He gets killed off near the end of the chapter, immediately after which a different hitman takes his place, once that one is taken care of neither one is mentioned again, [[spoiler:Not even in the end credits sequence, which shows every other character!]]

** Gray Fly from the same part also counts, being the first truly antagonistic stand user that isn't simply under mind control. He's also the one who turns a simple flight to Cairo into a journey spanning multiple countries.
