* Name a horror movie. Any horror movie. The villain's on the DVD cover, isn't it? What's more, [[AnyoneCanDie 90% of the rest of the cast is officially canon fodder.]]



* Heck, {{Creepypasta}}s in general.

* [[VideoGame/SystemShock System Shock]] series. SHODAN is so synonymous with the series that cover of System Shock 2 had SHODAN in it even though this was a one huge spoiler for the plot and the first thing we got to know about System Shock 3 was [=SHODANs=] voice.

* In a way, the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' series, with [[AIIsACrapshoot SkyNet]]. The movies do have central protagonists in John Connor and his mother Sarah. But not only the villain is always a Terminator KillerRobot - even if it's not one that looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger - but some media only feature said machines.

If the franchise is named after the villain, do not confuse this with AntagonistTitle. While the recurring villain in a Villain-Based Franchise usually features as the VillainAntagonist in the individual installments rather than as an outright VillainProtagonist, they are still the overarching main character in the series ''as a whole'', disqualifing them from this trope.

* Kai En Tai, a power stable with the humble origin of menacing Wrestling/MichinokuProWrestling later expanded into the United States via Wrestling/{{ECW}}'s BWO Japan, which lead to one half of the stable's Dream Chasers TagTeam, Wrestling/TAKAMichinoku, founding a "KAIENTAI Dojo" in Puerto Rico during the year 2000. A year after ECW closed, TAKA returned to Japan and started running his own shows with the students from said dojo.
