[[spoiler: However, several characters speculate that Thrane may have been responsible for the magical cataclysm that set the MythArc in motion; if this is true, that probably cements him as ''the'' BigBad of the Saga]].

** To elaborate, it at first seems that the Subspace Army is led by the Ancient Minister with Bowser and Wario working with them to take out the other fighters and collect them in their trophy forms. [[spoiler: King Dedede]] is also collecting trophied fighters, but he's competing with the other villains [[spoiler: and it turns out he's GoodAllAlong as he was collecting the fighters so that he could give them timed badges that would revive them in case all the fighters were wiped out.]] Then it turns out that the real leader of the Subspace Army is [[spoiler: Ganondorf and Ancient Minister was ForcedIntoEvil in order to protect the R.O.B.s.]] THEN it turns out [[spoiler: Ganondorf and the other fighters working with the Subspace Army were working under the Master Hand, who was in turn being controlled by the true Big Bad, Tabuu, the lord of Subspace.]]

** Very much so in ''Literature/DawnOfTheClans'' . The first novel sets up [[spoiler: Clear Sky]] as a villain. This continues throughout the second and third novel. However Clear Sky [[MyGodWhatHaveIdone regrets his actions]] and makes up for them. The fourth book introduces One-Eye as a villain.

* SuperSmashBrosBrawl, in the Subspace campaign, has... numerous [[BigBad Big Bads]]. This stems partly from the nature of the game - as a lumping together of the respective Nintendo mythologies, all the key villains come with their respective heroes.

* In the ''Literature/ErebusSequence'', it takes until the end of the second book (of three) to be clear on exactly who the main villain is. The King and the Majordomo each seem dismissive of the other's belief that they're the one in charge, and apparent new primary threats (the reactionary Fonteins, the increasingly tyrannical Domina, etc.) turn out to be manipulated by the then-thought-dead Majordomo.
