* The Scorpion Clan is this to the entire [[LegendOfTheFiveRings Emerald Empire]]. They lie, they cheat, they steal, they murder and they blackmail. [[IDidWhatIHadToDo All in the name of Loyalty and Duty.]] This is their job, to be the Underhand and do the [[PragmaticVillainy dirty but necessary things]] that the other Clans will not.
* Among the sample characters given in {{GURPS}} 4th Edition, Baron Janos Telkozep seems to be one. He's a vampire who's backstory is that he's working for the good guys for purely selfish reasons, and close inspection of his character sheet suggests he's ''not'' a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire but rather a murderous, greedy bastard. Oh, and he's named after a god with two faces.

* Diana, one of the Selacao from ''Anime/EdenOfTheEast'' is introduced as a SerialKiller known as the "Johnny Hunter", who has been killing men by [[GroinAttack castrating them with a cigar cutter]]. She turns out to be a SerialKillerKiller of sorts, only targeting rapists. In the film, ''The King of Eden'', she's become considerably nicer and is a loyal ally to the heroes, but notwithstanding this and her [[AssholeVictim selectivity of victims]], she's still a mass murderer.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' we have Hyde, a pyromaniac who joined the military to avoid jail time and refused to wear a filter mask so he could look his foes in the eye as they died. It's safe to say that if the antagonists weren't so far removed from human he wouldn't have been considered one of the good guys.

** Also the [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Trolls as a whole]] are a race of violent {{Jerk Ass}}es who have no qualms about infanticide or culling other "weak" members of their population. And they ''still'' all [[EvenEvilHasStandards hate Vriska, and Eridan even more.]]
** By the end of Act 5, [[spoiler:both Vriska and Eridan received LaserGuidedKarma deaths (albeit with a good bit of AlasPoorVillain for Vriska), leaving [[MonsterClown Gamzee]] as the Token Evil Teammate of the survivors]].

* Mr Big in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. Unlike the morally ambiguous Nick, he's just a straight up unrepentant mob boss, and really only on Judy's side because she saved his daughter's life. His main contribution to the investigation is threatening to "ice" an uncooperative informant, and he pretty clearly means it.

** The trope isn't played completely straight with Trent, however. Dwayne shows more patience with his antics than he really deserves, though it's fair to say his feud with Fred isn't entirely one-sided, but Trent [[ http://www.gpf-comics.com/archive/2005/08/17 does eventually push the TeamDad too far.]]

* ''Manga/HistorysStrongestDiscipleKenichi'': The Shinpaku Alliance has one as the ''leader'', Nijima. Various other characters in their orbit could also be considered as such depending on how strictly you [[IWasJustPassingThrough ascribe the term "teammate" to them]]. These can include [[spoiler: three members of YOMI; Tanimoto Natsu, Rachael Stanley and Kushinada Chikage. All of them have friendly dealings with Kenichi and the rest of the Shinpaku Alliance even if they have yet to renounce their ties to YOMI]].
