* Several episodes of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' used this trope, with the episode focusing solely on the villain, and Jack having little - or no - role in the actual story, making only a cameo appearance. Notable examples are "The Princess and the Bounty Hunters" and "Tale of X-9". In "Aku's Fairy Tales", Jack did not appear in person at all, with Aku being the main character.

So where is it written that the bad guy can't be the star? Truthfully, nowhere.

* Iriana from ''IlivaisX'' gradually becomes this. At first, she's mostly freaked out, having narrowly escaped from an eternity of servitude to an empire that half-unwittingly tortured her for more than half of her life. As such, she spends her first week or so taking respite, learning to use the eponymous robot, defending herself, getting in close with Mille, and generally being moderately suspicious but even pitiable at times. But soon she realizes the infinitely destructive power of her robot, and her grudge against the Aztecs and the world in general begins to surface. She begins antagonizing the empires far more adamantly for little reason aside from wanting them destroyed, manipulates and forces people into serving her (especially Mille), and shows an unwillingness to accept things that aren't in her control- and if that doesn't change, she deigns to erase it from existence.

* The Rake from Music/TheDecemberists' "The Rake's Song" sings, without so much as a hint of regret, about how he killed his three children in order to escape from the responsibilities of parenthood. It's quite [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome good.]]

* Hip-Hop artists like Music/JayZ or [[FiftyCent 50 Cent]] were allegedly criminals before having music careers, and many of their songs deal with this topic from their perspective.

* Discussed in the ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' episode "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Hercules", where -- behind the scenes -- the lead actor Kevin Sorbo goes missing, forcing the writers to consider changing the show to account for Hercules' disappearance, and two of the staff members, a gun nut and an unhinged psychopath played by the actors who play [[WarGod Ares]] and Xena's nemesis Callisto, gleefully propose spinoff series about Ares and Callisto respectively.
