* ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]] Issue #85'' focuses entirely on [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker The Joker]], who gives a warped-but-mostly-accurate rundown of his history with all three Robins so far.
* An issue of Franchise/GreenLantern, intended to be a prelude to ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', shows us what William Hand's childhood was like and how he eventually became the supervillain Black Hand. The main books in the ''Comicbook/BlackestNight'' saga focused on Black Hand's thoughts on each of the emotional spectrum corps at the end of each book in a feature called the book of black.

** The "Babylonian Rising" arc was mostly about the Babylon Rouges and the Battle Bird Armada [[EvilVersusEvil competing to get into the Babylonian Gardens.]] Sonic and his friends show up midway though it's still mostly the villains' story.

* September 2013 was when ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'' debuted and was also Villains Month; in which all the heroic ongoing series were replaced with one-shot issues featuring various villains. While many were about [[OriginsIssue the origins of]] [[StartOfDarkness the villains]] ({{ComicBook/Darkseid}}, [[ComicBook/LightsOut Relic]], etc.), some were tie-ins to ''Forever Evil'' ([[ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} Black Manta]]), and some were [[TakeAThirdOption both]] ([[Comicbook/SuicideSquad Deadshot, Harley Quinn]]).

* ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFiendshipIsMagic'' is a five issue mini-series all about various ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' villains and their origins. ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendsForever'' #16 focuses on Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon trying to outdo the Cutie Mark Crusaders. While not nearly as bad as some of the examples on the list, the two have been nothing but antagonistic throughout the franchise so far.
* Nominally, the ''JLA'' one-shot in Creator/TangentComics was one of these, the Justice League of America being a government agency dedicated to neutralizing superhumans by any means necessary. In practice, the issue is mostly about the heroes the JLA targets (namely Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, the Green Lantern, and the original Atom) fighting them off and forming an alliance; little is learned about the JLA's history, inner workings, or individual motivations

** ''ComicBook/TheSuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'', is essentially a Spider-Man story told from the perspective of the average, D-List supervillains, showing Boomerang and his gang as they try to keep the lights on and eventually get tangled up in a local gang conflict. Spider-Man only appears in (mostly silent) cameos as [[TheDreaded a vague threat feared by many]].

* The ''StarTrekExpandedUniverse'' novel ''TheFinalReflection'' served as this. Nowadays a ''Star Trek'' novel from the Klingon point of view would hardly be considered a Villain Episode, but it was published [[TheEighties in 1984]], well before their status as a ProudWarriorRace had been codified.

* David Xanatos of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has two of them. In the first one ,"Eye of the Beholder", Xanatos struggles to save [[spoiler: Fox after he gives her the Eye of Odin as a gift to seal their engagement. Fox turns into a werewolf and Xanatos is shown for the first time with worry and panic, something he's not known for. Ultimately, it serves as an episode to reveal that Xanatos is not the ruthless villain he wants people to believe, because he's capable of loving someone besides himself]]. Another Xanatos episode is, "The Gathering", where he [[spoiler: battles the Earth God, Avalon, after he starts the Gathering, calling all of his children back home. Turns out Fox (now his wife) is half Avalon, but wasn't born with any spiritual powers. Her son by Xanatos on the other hand, was born with great power potential. In the end, Xanatos is able to defend his home, and because Goliath helped him during both examples, it would ultimately foreshadow his HeelFaceTurn at the end of season 2]].

* King Dedede and Dr. Escargon/Escargoon of ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'' have several episodes dedicated to themselves like "Escar-gone" where nobody recognizes Escargoon due to the effect of Boukyakku/Erasem being inside his body and "Sweet & Sour Puss" where Togeira takes away Dedede's ability to get angry and makes him stay calm and friendly through all of the pain inflicted on him by everyone else just to store his anger for one big crazy mega-attack.

** During Creator/MarkWaid's run there was an issue focusing on the ComicBook/RedSkull ... which was subjected to such ExecutiveMeddling that [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2007/01/18/comic-book-urban-legends-revealed-86/ Waid had his name removed from it]]. (Essentially, Waid's attempt to get into the head of a Nazi was stymied by a ruling that a) the Skull was a CardCarryingVillain, and b) despite this, he [[ButNotTooEvil couldn't actually be racist]].)

* ''Series/{{Millennium}}'': "Somehow, Satan Got Behind Me". The show's main character Frank Black only appears sporadically, with the episode proper centering on four demons discussing their different strategies about how to spread misery and death.
