** [[CatsAreMean Katz]] stands out in a children’s cartoon as an AxCrazy SerialKiller played straight. While his motives tend to change due to the show’s NegativeContinuity, each episode he appears in generally has him using some sort of illegitimate business as a front for committing murders, [[FridgeHorror his list of past victims strongly implied to be quite long]]. In his first appearance, for example, he ran a HellHotel where he fed all his guests to spiders. Other episodes have seen him [[BalefulPolymorph transforming the guests of his health spa]] into machines and forcing them to fight to the death for his entertainment, threatening to turn Muriel into candy as revenge for [[SecondPlaceIsForLosers her always beating him in a candy-making competition]], and trying to blow up a submarine full of people to drive a rival vacation submarine company out of business. In most of his appearances, he challenges Courage to some sort of sport [[{{Sadist}} solely to drag out the dog’s suffering for as long as he can]]. In a series that was already in no short supply of NightmareFuel, Katz [[KnightOfCerebus still stood out]] as [[VileVillainSaccharineShow the absolute worst the show had to offer]].
** [[NeverSmileAtACrocodile The Great Fusilli]], from the [[MonsterOfTheWeek eponymous season 1 episode]], is a traveling stage magician who lured people onto his stage on the guise of making them famous actors. He would then have them perform for an imaginary audience, in order to use enchanted puppet strings to convert them [[PeoplePuppets into lifeless puppets]], which he would then play with for his own amusement. Once Courage finds a room filled with the dozens of people he's converted into marionettes, Fusilli turns his owners Muriel and Eustace into puppets while at the same time attempting to dispose of Courage. Although NegativeContinuity undoes the effect of Muriel and Eustace's murder, [[DownerEnding the ending of the episode]] leaves disturbing implications. Though comparatively minor compared to more major villains of the show, Fusilli was on par with even [[SerialKiller Katz]], and his one appearance in the show proved to be [[NightmareFuel one of the most disturbing]] episodes of the show's run.

* ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'': The MonsterOfTheWeek from ''Eclipse" was the [[HornyDevils succubus/vampire]] known as Elise Lenoir. [[WoundedGazelleGambit Appearing as an innocent young woman on the run from evil men]], Elise maintained her youth and beauty by draining the life from beautiful, innocent women. The man hunting her had lost his sister to her years past. Elise murdered the men who tried to tail her, and later [[MindRape mind controlled Hadji]] into her slave to bring Jessie to her for her food source. When her right-hand man protested about Elise trying to replace him with Hadji, Elise declared he was right and sucked the life from him as well. When her deadline of an eclipse was approaching, Elise abandoned all pretense of charm and subtlety and assumed her monstrous true form to kill everyone around and drain Jessie's life.

Paid by a private party to investigate a hindrance to the drug trade in Borneo, Compton assumes the identity of "Mitchell Stramm" after his party is seemingly wiped out by the native Amok monster, winning his way into the Quest's family's good graces and finding the village that's been disrupting the drug trade. Smugly betraying the Quests at this point, Compton opts to simply massacre every last native man, woman, and child in the village to remove them as an obstacle, gloating that [[{{Greed}} his employers will pay him handsomely for each head he brings back to them]], attached to the bodies or not.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' ([[SamuraiJack/TropesSeason5 season 5]]): While [[BigBad Aku]] himself is MadeOfEvil, this duo from the [[DarkerAndEdgier final season]] proves that, sometimes, HumansAreTheRealMonsters:
** The HighPriestess is the leader of the [[{{Cult}} Cult of Aku]], and a [[SinisterMinister zealot]] dedicated solely to appeasing the dark god she worships by any means necessary. Drinking Aku's essence and [[EvilMatriarch giving birth to septuplets]] with Aku's dark energy within them, the High Priestess dubs them the Daughters of Aku and proceeds to [[TrainingFromHell horribly condition them]] into unfeeling weapons whose sole purpose is to kill Samurai Jack. The High Priestess [[AbusiveParents systematically abuses them for years on end]], [[WouldHurtAChild searing their flesh with hot coals while they're still young]] and putting them through brutal, life-or-death training routines where every slight distraction means torture and beatings--sometimes simply for things as minor as looking outside. Having the Daughters graduate by having them massacre her own devoted followers, the High Priestess sends the Daughters into the world to kill Jack and callously brushes off the deaths of most of them at Jack's hand, furiously attempting to [[OffingTheOffspring kill Ashi, her only surviving daughter]], with her own hands after she finally turns on the High Priestess. An unfeeling [[PsychoSupporter fanatic]] able to rival her own dark god in evil, the High Priestess justifies her cruelty simply by stating Jack must die at any cost--regardless if that cost is her own flesh and blood.
** [[PsychoElectro The Dominator]], from "[[Recap/SamuraiJackS5E5XCVI XCVI]]", is a sadistic TortureTechnician seemingly motivated purely by a desire to hurt people. Slaughtering a village of innocents and [[WouldHurtAChild abducting all of their children]], the Dominator painfully transforms all of the children into psychotic killing machines to be used as weapons, and tests them out on Jack and Ashi once they try to retrieve the children, with complete knowledge Jack's [[NeverHurtAnInnocent refusal to hurt innocents]] makes him [[VirtueIsWeakness easy prey]]. The Dominator [[ColdBloodedTorture brutally tortures]] Ashi upon capturing her with clear lascivious intent, gloating that children are easily manipulated tools-- and that Jack's refusal to hurt them only makes him a "righteous fool."

** [[EvilOverlord Vilgax]], the OverarchingVillain of the entire franchise and by far Ben Tennyson's [[ArchEnemy most personal enemy]], is a psychopathic [[GalacticConqueror galactic warlord]]. After his evil caused him to be banished from his homeworld, Vilgax went on to assault and conquer numerous planets across the cosmos, outright annihilating the entire planet of Petropia and its billions of inhabitants to make an example of those who resist him. After discovering the existence of the Omnitrix, Vilgax becomes obsessed with possessing the gadget to modify it for his own gain, and spends much of the first series sending wave after wave of his forces to Earth solely to [[WouldHurtAChild kill Ben Tennyson, a 10-year-old-boy]], and steal the watch from him, later trying to viciously [[AnArmAndALeg saw the boy's arm off]] and [[EarthShatteringKaboom blow up the entire Earth]] for the trouble it has caused him. In ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]'', Vilgax [[VillainWithGoodPublicity builds up his image as a law-abiding citizen]] by "legally" conquering 10 planets, though ultimately ditches this persona and tries to use the Omnitrix to lead a full-scale war against all who would stand against him. In ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'', Vilgax becomes the herald for [[EldritchAbomination Diagon]] before betraying and killing his master and stealing his power, hoping to use it to mind control all life in the universe. In the final series, ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]'', Vilgax, though at first seeming to have [[VillainDecay decayed in his evil]], pulls out perhaps the most wicked scheme in the entire franchise, using a Chronosapien Time Bomb to [[OmnicidalManiac wipe out all dimensions and timelines]], his own included, to leave only a single, more submissive universe for him to conquer and rule. Vilgax was a purely evil madman who would kill first billions, then insurmountable trillions, just to satisfy his raging desire to be the most powerful being in the universe, and stands out as the most iconic villain in ''Ben 10'' for this very reason.

** ''[[ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Incorporated]]'': The BiggerBad, the [[EldritchAbomination Nibiru Entity]], is a member of a normally benevolent inter-dimensional alien race called the Anunnaki; his own kind considers him the most evil member of their entire species. He's spent untold centuries corrupting and manipulating the people around him, especially the {{Team Pet}}s of mystery solving teams, by perverting his species' ability to use animals as mediums to communicate, all working towards [[SealedEvilInACan freeing him from his prison]]. In the process he's ruined and ended countless lives through his {{Unwitting Pawn}}s (including [[BigBad Professor Pericles]], who the Entity turned into a murderous psychopath) without a second thought. When he's finally released in the SeriesFinale, he proceeds to [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness gleefully eat his loyal minions alive]] along with Mr. E. He follows this by turning Crystal Cove into HellOnEarth and devouring the ''entire'' town with sadistic glee, planning to move on to the rest of the universe when he's done, all for the sake of power. When Mystery Inc. finally kill him, erasing him from time in the process, we see what Crystal Cove would've been like without his influence: a normal town with everyone living good, happy lives, showing just how much pain and misery he was truly responsible for.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': Season 4's two-parter "[[Recap/ThePowerpuffGirlsS4EP6 Knock it Off]]" has one-shot villain Professor [[MeaningfulName Dick Hardly]]. Introduced as the [[{{Jerkass}} sleazy college roommate]] of Professor Utonium, Dick quickly sees the potential of the Powerpuff Girls as a way to get rich quick. Getting the girls to supply him with Chemical X, Dick makes his own knock-offs of the girls and starts a business selling these copies as superheroes. Due to Dick's greed, however, these knock-offs have been created with minimum materials and Chemical X, meaning that, even though they are aware, they are mentally stunted and physically deformed. When the effort of superheroing causes the knock-offs to [[BodyHorror fall apart]], Dick's happy because it means he gets to sell even more copies. At one point Dick notices one of his knock-offs is a perfect Buttercup copy, his response is to order the girl melted down for her "excessive" Chemical X. The episode's climax has Dick capturing the real Powerpuff Girls and killing them slowly by draining them of their Chemical X. When Utonium offers to be a slave, making Chemical X for Dick for the rest of his life, if Dick will let the girls live, Dick only laughs and says he'll kill the girls ''and'' keep Utonium as a slave. {{Greed}} incarnate, Dick Hardly was notable for being the only villain on the show to be played [[KnightOfCerebus completely seriously]], with [[VileVillainSaccharineShow no humorous quirks to detract from his viciousness]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'': While most of this show’s villains had some form of redeeming quality, Helga Von Guggen was an exception.

She brags about one of her coats, claiming that it's "genuine lawyer." She later designs a line of apparel that crushes people who wear them, with heavy implications that it manages to kill an innocent shopper [[KilledOffscreen off-screen]] just in the opening minutes of the episode it was introduced.
