* The Joker had a short comics series of his own in the 1970s, and Eclipso had an ongoing one in the 1990s. While radical in their day, villain-based series have since gotten more common.

* While [[ArchEnemy Darkhell]] doesn't appears in ''all'' episodes of ''ComicBook/LesLegendaires'', he is still present in a lot of them, and the plot is almost ''always'' related to him: the other villains are usually connected to him ([[TheRival Skroa]]), attempt to use devices created by him (Ceyderom) or [[EvilerThanThou have a fight with him]] (Anathos). Even now that [[spoiler:he finally died]], new BigBad Abyss has been ''created'' by him and considers himself as his heir.

* 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.
