** Far more malicious is [[TheKrampus Grumpas]], who can only be fought by players who can access the Broken Isles. Legends state that he kidnaps naughty children and creates his minions using their tears. Of course, he's no legend, and makes his lair in the frozen wasteland of Frostfire Ridge, a dangerous area.

* Batman is presented as such both in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''. In the latter the explanation given is that his parents were killed on Christmas and he was mean to them for not receiving the gift he wanted hours earlier, but he learns to love Christmas at the end of the episode.

* Dramatically deconstructed in the BBC mockumentary ''Film/TheDayBritainStopped''. The rail union called on a nationwide strike on 20 December 2003, resulting in [[{{Mundanger}} all of Britain's motorways being gridlocked to a standstill (from the extra amount of cars), people's lives and the nation's infrastructure severely disrupted,]] [[SoaplandChristmas and a severely overworked air traffic control office committing an error that led into a two-plane collision over a residential area of London.]] And this is not counting the continued disruption (that lasted for at least a week) on the roads/rails as well as people travelling to/from overseas. While we don't really see the union's side of thing, it is quite clear that, intentionally or otherwise, the rail workers' union and their decision to go on strike ruined the nation's whole Christmas season in very horrific ways.

** King Mondo is even worse. In the ''PowerRangersDinoChargeZeo Zeo'' Christmas episode, he robs the presents from Angel Grove to please his SpoiledBrat of a son, ''and'' imposes a HatePlague upon the heroes to make them argue.
** In ''PowerRangersDinoCharge Dino Charge'', Poisandra has a personal grudge against Santa, stealing his computer after being denied presents. (Santa, it seems, keeps his "naughty/nice list" on it, and never made a backup, meaning he'd have to cancel Christmas if he can't get it back.)

See also TheScrooge, another character who is usually a Christmas hater. Opposite to TheAntiGrinch, who ''loves'' Christmas, but ends up nearly destroying it unintentionally.

Added DiffLines:

* A common characteristic of Franchise/PowerRangers villains:
** Lord Zedd complains about Christmas ''every'' year, according to Rita, but one year he decides to invade Santa's workshop and impose ''his'' ideal Christmas on the world. The heroes naturally show up to confront the villains, but they're at a clear disadvantage here, as the North Pole has a "unique polarity" that leaves them unable to morph. (Fortunately, the bad guys have the same disadvantage, and are defeated via a snowball fight.)
** King Mondo is even worse. In the ''PowerRangersDinoChargeZeo Zeo'' Christmas episode, he robs the presents from Angel Grove to please his SpoiledBrat of a son, ''and'' imposes a HatePlague upon the heroes to make them argue.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the Abominable Greench not only steals presents during Winter's Veil, he kidnaps Metzen the Reindeer, and unlike the guy he's a parody of, is very, very dangerous. (As in, he's a Raid Boss, and should not be confronted alone.)

Abominable Greench not only steals presents during Winter's Veil, he kidnaps Metzen the Reindeer, and unlike the guy he's a parody of, is very, very dangerous. (As in, he's a Raid Boss, and should not be confronted alone.) However, actually fighting him is not required to complete the daily quest.)
