** [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Chrysalis]] in "A Canterlot Wedding", whose ''modus operandi'' is to replace and impersonate individuals, [[EmotionEater draining their loved ones]] to increase her own power and put them under MindControl, before leading her minions in a full scale invasion so they can feed as well and drain everyone.

* Lord Dominator from season 2 of ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' is, according to WordOfGod, deliberately this, evoking the storytelling conventions of more serious, story-oriented animated shows such as ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. She's a sadistic bully who takes pleasure in destruction, is the first villain in the show to actually [[KilledOffForReal kill off a character for real]], and succeeds in destroying every single planet in the entire galaxy [[spoiler:except for one.]] Had the show continued, we would have seen someone even worse than her show up.

* The BigBad from the crossover story, ''FanFic/TheBridge''. True, [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}}one half]] of said crossover is far from a sugar bowl, but isn't so mature that it's not safe for kids. So what is the villain for a crossover between {{Kaiju}} and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equines?]] A demonic, RealityWarping, EldritchAbomination who's an OmnicidalManiac with millions of kills under his belt. Considering it's [[spoiler: Bagan]], this should be expected.

** Kain from the first movie (''Tenchi Muyo In Love'') was significantly darker than most other villains of the franchise, being an OmnicidalManiac EldritchAbomination LivingShadow whose presence [[KnightOfCerebus sucked out all of the regular wacky hijinx]] the franchise is usually known for.

** Machinedramon is a cold-hearted, brutal and gigantic Killer Robot who speaks, though rarely, with a growling, hateful and metallic voice and mostly acts like a lifeless machine, unless when he's on a murder rampage, which is when his true sociopathic nature is shown, ordering a massive bombing over his own territory and telling the hero's 8-year old sister he's going to kill her as painfully as he can. It makes him one of the scariest villains in the show, and if that wasn't bad enough the Wonderswan games reveal he survives his fight with Wargreymon and becomes Milleniummon.
** Puppetmon has shades of this despite being LaughablyEvil. He's a dark version of Pinocchio who thinks he can make friends by killing and enslaving everyone around him, and uses a revolver to "play" a cruel version of hide-and-seek with T.K. and kills his minions, Mushroomon and Blossomon, with it because he thought they lied. Some countries edited the scenes with Puppetmon killing Mushroomon and Blossomon and holding the gun during the TV run of the series. It's a living puppet pointing at an eight year old child!

** [[ArchEnemy Darkhell]] is a homicidal, megalomaniac, cruel EvilSorcerer (and formerly SorcerousOverlord) who made insane experiments, was TheDreaded for years in his world and causes a large amonut of death each time he shows up. While he was scary already as an [[EvilOldFolks adult]], [[EnfantTerrible having turned back to childhood only makes him more disturbing]].
** [[ManipulativeBastard Skroa]] is a bird-like demonic sorcerer that used to be Darkhell's rival and frequently uses the protagonists as pawn for his plans. He's shown slaughtering a group of armed human beings of his own. He once ''cut his own arm off'' as a part of his plan;

* ''ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' is a light-hearted series for Marvel standards, yet the BigBad is [[spoiler:Old Loki, a version of the main character from a BadFuture, trying to force young Loki to become him like it or not.]] Worth to note that that series gets a GutPunch thanks to ''Comicbook/{{AXIS}}'' and then [[CerebusSyndrome takes a nose first dive into darkness]].

* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' has Lord Shen, an evil peacock tyrant who is bent on destroying kung fu with heavy artillery, terrorized many innocent pigs and bunnies with his army of wolves, and he almost pushed the entire panda species (which includes Po) to the point of extinction! All of this is enough to make Tai Lung, the snow leopard villain of the first ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' film look like a scaredy cat. When Shen's right hand and the leader of the wolves objects to him [[BadBoss opening fire on his own soldiers to get at the heroes]], Shen responds with a [[YouHaveFailedMe dagger]] [[BackStab to his back]], making it the first time in a [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation DreamWorks]] movie a villain actually offs someone onscreen.

* ''WesternAnimation/RosePetalPlace'', a 1980s toy franchise in the ''Strawberry Shortcake'' mold, yielded two animated specials -- and the antagonist, the spider woman Nastina, tries to ''murder the heroine'' in both. In the first, after pettily destroying the flower women's concert hall, she convinces Rose-Petal that she's made a HeelFaceTurn to lure her into her castle and administer a potion that ruins her beautiful voice. ''Then'' she locks her in a virtually lightless room; Rose-Petal desperately states that "I can't live without light!" and by the time her friends arrive to rescue her, she's effectively dead, [[DisneyDeath saved only by the power]] of SwissArmyTears. In the second special, Nastina humiliates a visiting friend of Rose-Petal's to lure the heroine into a position where she can run her over with an old lawn mower (which she rides like a motorcycle), and again, she's barely able to escape.

* ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake'''s most famous adversary, the Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak, qualifies as this in the first of the 1980s specials, ''The World of Strawberry Shortcake''. When his Berry Birds fail to plunder her strawberry patch, he masquerades as a friendly old peddler and sells the kids a watering can that never runs dry to give her as a birthday present. The trick is that he's the only one who knows how to stop its flow; Strawberryland ends up completely flooded in a SugarApocalypse. The poor kids end up harvesting all the strawberries and transporting them to the Pieman's castle in exchange for his making the waters recede (leaving a muddy wallow behind). To make matters worse, the kids lose track of the baby of the group, Apple Dumplin', in the process and she ends up in the palace as well. At this point the {{Narrator}}, Mr. Sun, pulls a DeusExMachina and offers to grant Strawberry a wish, which she uses to summon an army of living trees -- which bring the castle down, forcing the Pieman to surrender. The kids actually induce a HeelFaceTurn in him once he's returned the berries and the baby, but he reverts to his old ways by the time of the next special, whereupon he's more of a HarmlessVillain with extremely petty, childish motives and any real damage his plans pose to others is often an unintended side effect of his plotting.

Crafty, ruthless and ultimately as strong in body as in mind, Toffee is the most vile thing in Star Vs, and easily her greatest threat.
