* Various novels by Creator/KimNewman, but especially ''The Quorum'' and ''Life's Lottery'', feature the monstrous media magnate Derek Leech, who is a combined NoCelebritiesWereHarmed of Richard Branson (in the 1970s) and Creator/RupertMurdoch (from the 1980s to date) and is also literally TheAntichrist and a HumanoidAbomination. He is also the BiggerBad of the Literature/DiogenesClub sequence.

* Archaon in ''WarhammerFantasy'' was destined from birth to become the Everchosen of Chaos who will finally bring about the End Times. Since he was raised as a devout follower of Sigmar before learning this he is understandably ''extremely'' unhappy about this fate and intends to ultimately subvert the will of the Chaos Gods. Unfortunately for everyone else his plan is to [[OmnicidalManiac kill every living thing in the word]] to permanently rob the Chaos Gods of sustenance, destroying them in their moment of triumph.

*** There is, however, a character in 2. Thessalonians, the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Man of Lawlessness]], who fits the description rather well. Evangelical Christians identify him, along with the Revelation Beast and another character referred to in the Book of Daniel, with John's Antichrist. (That is, "the" Antichrist of verse 18, who the other "many [lesser] antichrists" are compared to.)

** A SelfMadeOrphan, on account of his murdering his father. This act violates the Fourth Commandment, the one about honoring one's father and mother. Secondarily yet more importantly, [[{{Camp}} the murdering of the parent has been the most prominent and distinguishing desire of the characters portrayed as the Antichrist in cinema]].

** His Command Seal symbol: while it is meant to look like a sword, it can also be viewed as an upside-down cross. This would seem to be coincidental until Kirei confronts Emiya: literally a moment before their climactic fight, Kotomine kisses his necklace-bound crucifix; immediately following that shot is a view of Kiritsugu's Command seals as an upside-down cross, as the hand beneath them grips his [[HandCannon Thompson Contender]].

While it seems ridiculously common nowadays for people to be accused of being this, such accusations are always baseless (and usually pretty dumb), so Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease. Though we're going to add one person, pure out of historical sake, because [[OlderThanTheyThink he was definitely the first one]] who was bestowed with this title: Emperor UsefulNotes/{{Nero}}. For centuries he was seen as the embodiment of everything Christians despised, especially since he persecuted them before Christianity become Rome's state religion. In this particular example one can immediately see why labeling people as ''Antichrists'' just boils down to picking one celebrity you hate, as if he is so ultimately ''evil'' that nobody else will ever come round and top him.

This is a guy so far up the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil that there's not likely to be a DeusExMachina [[GoodIsImpotent capable]] of stopping him (or her), so the heroes likely have to race to stop him from either [[SealedEvilInACan being released]], being born, [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday coming of age]], or [[DemonicPossession demonically possessing]] someone. Often, the consideration is that the vessel and the messiah are [[OurSoulsAreDifferent different entities]], and killing the bad also kills the innocent. If they do catch him before he starts putting his [[StoryBoardingTheApocalypse storyboards to film]], they ''still'' have to kill an innocent.
