* In ''VideoGame/UnchartedDrakesFortune'', one would assume that Gabriel Roman was the main antagonist looking to steal the treasure of El Dorado. However, at the game's climax, when he opens the golden coffin, he inhales the dust that drove the Spaniards mad and turned them into monsters. But before he could fully transform, he was shot by none other by his lackey, Navarro, who not only reveals that he led Roman to El Dorado, but had his suspicions of the treasure and used Roman as a guinea pig. And worst of all? He planned to sell it as a weapon to the highest bidder.
