** Roger.
He started out as a sympathetic, vaguely hedonistic alien, but over time he has established himself as a volatile, dangerous sociopath.sociopath.
** Stan also counts. Like Roger, he started out as more sympathetic albeit a little extreme. But as time went on, the lows he would stoop to in order to get his own way or hide his hypocrisies from the rest of his family turned him into this in about half the episodes of any given season. Episodes like "The Scarlett Getter", "Seizure Suit Stanny" and "Father's Daze" just to name a few are prime examples of him playing this trope 100% straight (and most of them are ones where [[DesignatedHero he's supposed to be seen as the hero by the end!]]).

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': House Lannister has gradually became the most prominent one in the story with Tyrion and Cersei ranking the first and the second in terms of speaking lines over the course of four seasons (and Jaime placing within the top 5), and despite the existence of it's more sympathetic members, like Tyrion, Tywin and Jaime, it still serves as the BigBad of the families of Westeros, with even those characters technically supporting the villainous side. Until Tyrion's exile, anyway.

* Towards the climax of ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', it's revealed that all the quirky, but not exactly evil, students are actually dangerous terrorists put in a LotusEaterMachine in an attempt to be rehabilitated. In fact, [[TheHero Hajime Hinata]], [[spoiler:as his alter ego and [[BigBad Junko Enoshima]]'s [[TheDragon dragon]], Izuru Kamukura]], is responsible for not just the events of the game, but also [[spoiler:the Tragedy that sparked ''the entire series'']]. By the end, however, [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn all the survivors choose to atone for their actions]].]]

* In a vein similar to TalesFromTheCrypt many episodes (but not all) of WesternAnimation/GrizzlyTalesForGruesomeKids center on horrible people, children specifically.

** Of course, given the CrapsackWorld status of at least two of the planets, [[BlackAndGreyMorality it isn't very hard for The Company™ to come across as ''the good guys'' by comparison]].

* ''VisualNovel/AtlachNacha'', where the protagonist is a [[ImAHumanitarian humanitarian]] GiantSpider who lusts after [[GirlsLove tender young schoolgirls]].
* Servant Avenger from ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia'' is definitely a Villain Protagonist - he ''is'' supposed to Evil Incarnate, after all. His soul itself is twisted and AlwaysChaoticEvil, and he actively pursues murder and rape to [[ForTheEvulz pass the time]]. This does not prevent him from becoming a character you can sympathise with, especially after the flashback to his horrific StartOfDarkness and some very poignant conversations with other characters. Despite hating humanity, he still shoulders the responsibility [[HumansAreBastards that was forced onto him]] - [[spoiler:to bear every sin ever committed and will be committed by a human]] and forever serve as a twisted 'champion' of humanity. The ending is complete with a {{Tear Jerk|er}}ing HeroicSacrifice.
-->"Even if humanity is worthless, the history that has been laid down until now has meaning.\\
(...) It is not a sin to exist."

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' loves to play with this trope, at least in-universe. Namely, in the 5th Arc, [[spoiler:Battler become the [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie Endless Sorcerer]]]] while a Mary Sue of [[spoiler:Bernkastel]]'s creation takes up the 'protagonist' role. (That is, has a reliable perspective.) In reality, though, no face heels or heel faces occur. The 'protagonist' role simply gets taken over by the two most evil characters in the series while they force the good guys into the 'antagonist' role.
