* ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'': [[ManipulativeBastard Reiji Marco]] is this during the Kantou Regionals, with his obsessions and schemes driving most of the plot, and helping to totally upset the way the tournament was supposed to go. During the Youth World Cup, the BigBadDuumvirate of [[EvilGenius Clifford D. Louis]] and [[HeroKiller Mr. Don]] take over as the main threat to the Devil-Bats, with their seeming invincibility driving the story for the remainder of the arc.

** Noah Kaiba during the anime only Virtual Nightmare arc. While his father Gozaburo is the BigBad, [[TheDragon Noah]] is the actual threat, and does most of the work.
** Dark Marik during the Battle City finals; defeating him is the end goal of Yugi, Joey, and Kaiba.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' has the Barian Emperor named Vector, an all-around menace whose ambitions are central to how the second half of the anime plays out. He's a selfish, mawkish, crafty bastard who works great under pressure or when things don't go his way, and he's not afraid to make bitter enemies out of everyone he knows, only for power.
* Dio Brando is ''the'' villain of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure''. When he's not directly playing the villain (like in parts 1 and 3,) he's still playing PredecessorVillain and influencing the plot even long after his death. [[spoiler: Even when the universe is essentially reset at the end of Part 6, an alternate universe version of him still appears in Steel Ball Run to make trouble.]]

* Freeza in ''Manga/DragonBallZ''. Dear god, ''Freeza.'' Basically everything in the first two arcs of DBZ (and by extention ''Dragon Ball'') can be traced back to him committing genocide on the Saiyan race: Goku got sent to earth because his parents got suspicious of Freeza ordering all the Saiyans gathered, his attack sent Bardock in time to [[spoiler: start the Super Saiyan legend]], he kept Vegeta alive for kicks. In the end, his [[GenocideBackfire genocide backfired]], he is defeated by the now Super Saiyan Goku, killed by Vegeta's son [[spoiler: and killed ''again'' by Goku in the Resurrection F movie.]] He even has a small impact on the ''third'' story arc: the aforementioned killing by Vegeta's son hinted at his Saiyan heritage before the Z fighters even properly met him, and his DNA was among the other samples used to make Cell.
** The original Dragon Ball series have King Piccolo who rampage caused his other half kami to create the titular Dragon Balls in the first place.

** ''VideoGame/BravelyDefault'' has the aptly named "Evil One", who, despite remaining a mystery throughout the plot, is the one the heroes are trying to stop. [[spoiler:Mysterious as this being is, TheReveal that she's [[BitchInSheepsClothing Airy]] drives this home since she's been deceiving the protagonists to help her master [[GreaterScopeVillain Ouroboros]] essentially become a God of Creation.]]

Saren in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', Kai Leng ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' is established as the apparent BigBad in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''. The former the first mission. It's later revealed that he's only the servant of a much bigger threat, but he remains Shepard's most personal enemy in the game even after it's revealed he's the servant of a much bigger threat. Kai Leng, by contrast, is the guy the Illusive Man (an ''[[NonActionBigBad exclusively]]'' mental opponent) sends to get his hands dirty.

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'': While the titular antagonist is ''not'' the BigBad, he is the one who drives most of the action (to the point that the final, climatic fight is between him and Steve), and has the most emotional impact on the plot [[spoiler:thanks to his true identity: a brainwashed Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers's long-thought dead best friend]].
