* [[PsychopathicManchild Benjamin "Cy" Bradstone]] from "Proof" has a mental disability, which makes him unique, but not even slightly sympathetic. [[ObfuscatingStupidity Pretending to be far more handicapped than he is]], Cy lures women out of the public eye, forces them into his shed, [[SerialRapist rapes them]], and then stabs them to death. He first [[EyeScream stabbed their eyes out]], but later evolved to [[FacialHorror using sulfuric acid to burn away their senses]]. If they don't like the way he looks, he takes their eyes. If they spit when he kisses them, he [[TongueTrauma takes their sense of taste]]. If they don't like his smell, he burns out their nostrils. His video journal reveals that he has been like this since he was a [[EnfanteTerrible young boy]], and he gloats that he brutalizes women for the same reason that he used to [[KickTheDog beat his dog]]: [[ForTheEvulz because it's fun]]. We eventually discover that he is targeting women who remind him of his sister-in-law, whom he attempted to molest when they were both teenagers. When his niece puts on a cheerleader costume that reminds him of her mother she becomes [[EvilUncle Cy’s]] final victim. After his arrest, his brother Matt, who has always been supportive of Cy, going so far as to offer to let him move in with him, demands to know why Cy did this; Cy laughs in his face, and tells him that he has [[CainAndAbel always hated Matt]] and was planning to deafen and then kill him one day. A ragingly [[HeManWomanHater misogynistic]] psychopath who just happens to be handicapped, Cy is fully aware of how awful his actions are, as evidenced by this message he leaves for Matt:

* The sadistic, arrogant [[EvilGenius Mason Turner]], from the two-part season finale "To Hell..." "...And Back", proves to be among the nastiest unsubs the BAU has faced. Unable to hunt and kill his victims himself due to being [[EvilCripple paralyzed from the neck down]], Mason manipulated his [[DumbMuscle mentally handicapped]] and freakishly strong brother [[PsychopathicManChild Lucas]] into becoming a killing machine. Mason has Lucas drive to Detroit to kidnap transients and haul them back to their pig farm in Canada, where [[TheBrute Lucas]] brutally slaughters them by [[DropTheHammer crushing their neck with a sledgehammer]]. Mason then guides Lucas through performing pointless, cruel experiments on their remains before discarding them by feeding them to the pigs. And all through the process, Lucas watches through a complex series of mirrors in order to satisfy his {{sadist}}ic tendencies. Through this process Mason has claimed eighty-nine lives, and is only stopped from killing a ninetieth victim when the BAU raids his farm. In order to throw suspicions off himself, Mason tries to pin his crimes on Lucas who he encourages the BAU to shoot on sight. Once he's exposed for the monster that he is, Mason is smug and completely unapologetic about his crimes, coldly stating that his victims were worthless trash that should be honored to be a part of something bigger than themselves. With a body count reached by only a few other unsubs, Mason Turner is proof that sometimes a FreudianExcuse isn’t enough to justify, or even explain, cruelty.

[[AC:Season 8]]
* [[EvilGenius John Curtis]] serves as the ArcVillain of the season, as well as the ArchEnemy of the BAU. [[FallenHero Originally a brilliant FBI Special Agent]], Curtis, after an incident caused him to be demoted and transferred to Kansas, vowed vengeance on [[DisproportionateRetribution the people responsible]]. He would become the SerialKiller known as "[[JackTheRipoff The Replicator]]" where he would [[ThemeSerialKiller copy some of the season's most gruesome murders]]. These murders include [[MouthStitchedShut sewing a man's mouth shut before leaving him to die of asphyxiation]]; [[AnArmAndALeg sawing off the legs of two people]], [[SkipTheAnesthetic without the use of anesthesia]]; dislocating a woman's limbs making her a DeadGuyPuppet, and [[DropTheHammer using a hammer to smash a women's head to death]]. He also manipulated a man whose life was ruined by the BAU into becoming a SerialKiller--with 3 victims--only to abandon him once he had outlived his usefulness, [[DrivenToSuicide driving the man to commit suicide]]. He later appears in person in "The Replicator", where he forces Erin Strauss, the woman who caused said incident, to [[ForceFeeding drink poisonous wine]], [[HeroKiller causing her to die slowly and painfully]]. His final plan would then come into motion where he would trap the BAU in one house where he'd set explosions to kill them all, [[TakingYouWithMe completely uncaring if he is still in the same house]]. A narcissistic [[TheSociopath sociopath]] whose manages to [[KnightOfCerebus darken an already grim show]], John Curtis, who made up in [[CruelAndUnusualDeath cruelty]] what he lacked in body count, would do anything to see those he believed had wronged him [[{{Sadist}} suffer to the fullest]].

He abducts Angel Suarez, rapes and tortures him for years on end, and when he escapes he is found with dozens of bite marks; the fact that Allen had to get his teeth recapped is further proof of his brutality.

He had also done these things to a previous victim, and the trophies he gives his daughter implies that he had dozens more.

* [[KillerCop Deputy]] Ronald [[CorruptHick Boyd]] from "A Rite of Passage," profiled as a "human predator", kills illegal immigrants because it allows him to assert a sense of power that he otherwise lacks. He lies in wait at border crossings, picks out a straggler, and then chases them through the desert on his ATV until they can no longer fight back, finishing them off with his {{machete|Mayhem}}. When the Hispanic sheriff whom Boyd loathes for being new to town, starts looking into the missing illegals, Boyd sends her progressively more aggressive "messages"--[[DecapitationPresentation severed heads]] in [[FingerInTheMail boxes]] outside the sheriff's office, a severed head on a pole in her front yard--until he finally kills her for sticking her nose into his business, while ranting that the illegals aren't really missing because "they ain't supposed to be here in the first place." Dismembering her corpse in order to pin the blame on [[TheCartel drug kingpin]] Omar Morales, Boyd proceeds to murder Morales and most of his gang to cover his tracks; [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain also because they're Hispanic]]. When his partner objects, Boyd shoots him and [[FrameUp places the gun in the hands of the dead Morales]]. Taking offense to the idea that he sees himself as weak, and viewing himself as a total {{badass}}, Boyd makes an average DirtyCop look like an angel.

* [[TerroristsWithoutACause Hayman Vasher]] from "A Thousand Suns" is an aerospace engineer who is a big admirer of UsefulNotes/RobertOppenheimer, especially how he progressed from socially-awkward to world-renowned. For Vasher, who after being humiliated on a date dropped out of society, this involved building a device which can hack into airplanes and control them. As a "test", analogous to the Manhattan Project's Trinity test, Vasher makes a plane crash in a sparsely-populated area, resulting in over 150 deaths, including the woman who he had dated. As his Hiroshima, Vasher takes control of a plane with over 300 people and plans to crash it into a populated area. He agrees to let the plane land if the BAU calls off fighter jets which have scrambled to shoot the plane down if necessary, but once this happens, [[ILied Vasher tries to crash the plane anyway]], before he and his device are both shot. Vasher was also looking at other flights, meaning that there might have been still other crashes had he not been stopped. [[ItsAllAboutMe Driven only by his need]] for {{attention|Whore}} and [[AGodAmI enjoying "playing God or some other deity", Hayman Vasher, "a mass annihilator…who wants to eradicate life on a large scale", is one of only a few unsubs to successfully have a triple-digit body count.

* Karl Arnold, aka [[CunningLikeAFox The Fox]], is the first "family annihilator" to appear in the show, and the only one to put in more than one appearance. Debuting in "The Fox," Arnold uses his position as a [[PsychoPsychologist family psychiatrist]] to seek out families that he feels are dysfunctional (that is, [[StayInTheKitchen where the father is not the dominant personality]]), stalks them, and then kidnaps them while the neighbors believe them to be on vacation, using his control over the children to keep the parents hostage. He keeps them separated from one another for days, then brings them together for one last supper, after which The Fox marches the entire family into the basement and kills them, [[WouldHurtAChild starting with the children]] and ending with the father. Upon his capture, The Fox explains that he does this because his own family fell apart due to his [[SuperOCD obsessive-compulsive]], [[ControlFreak controlling]] nature, and he wants to show how much worse things can get when the head of the household isn't "[[AbusiveDad strong]]". At this point, it's still possible for the viewer to have sympathy for Arnold, due to the fact that the episode focuses on his OCD and the fact that he's having a mental breakdown. This does not hold true in season 5's "Outfoxed," his second appearance. [[ConsultingAConvictedKiller Interviewed by the FBI]] for help with another family annihilator, Arnold comes off as calm and in control, repeatedly asking to see pictures of the crime scenes, coming onto Prentiss, taunting Hotch for his marital problems, and gloating about the fact that before he killed the families he took hostage, he would beat the male children, and [[SerialRapist rape the female ones]]. This revelation, coupled with The Fox's [[SmugSnake smug]], superior demeanor, and the fact that he's become pen pals with The Boston Reaper (laughing as he tells Hotch that The Reaper is coming for he and his family) wipes out any sympathy the viewer might once have held, and cements his status as a true monster.
* Jackson Cally from "The Tribe" is a chilling example of what you get when you combine extreme [[LackOfEmpathy sociopathy]], [[TheCharmer charisma]], and [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain bigotry]] into one man. A {{cult}} leader native to Terra Mesa, a mostly-white New Mexico town known for tensions with a mostly-Apache town nearby, Cally preys on troubled teenagers interested in Native Americans, indoctrinating them into being willing to kill for him under the pretense of "helping" the Apache reclaim all their ancestral land, while keeping his true goal - attempting to foment a race war that would wipe the Apache out - a secret from them. He first sends his cult to massacre the residents of a college dormitory built on former Apache land in gruesome ways, such as [[OffWithHisHead decapitation]] and {{impale|dWithExtremePrejudice}}ment, mimicking Native American war rituals, in hopes the Apache would be blamed and the whites would retaliate. When the FBI rule out the Apache as suspects, Cally has his men decapitate the leader of a local racist group, his wife, and [[WouldHurtAChild his two young children]] and [[DecapitationPresentation impale their heads on pikes]] for the FBI to find. His final and most wicked gambit, however, is to dress up his men as members of the racist group and send them on a wholesale massacre of the Apache town's school. When foiled and caught by the FBI, Cally's only justification for his actions is that he hoped to show the world what "savage animals" the Apache people "really" are.

* [[EvilOldFolks Anita Roycewood]] from "Mosley Lane" is a serial kidnapper and [[WouldHurtAChild child murderer]], who [[LadyMacbeth forces]] her [[HenpeckedHusband submissive husband]], Roger, and first kidnap victim, [[StockholmSyndrome Charlie Hillridge]], to help her abduct and imprison children. Keeping the children locked up in a hidden hallway, [[EvilMatriarch Anita]] renames them, dyes their hair, and is implied to sexually abuse them, using fear, beatings, and threats to the other children to keep them in line. When the children grow too old for her liking, or become uncontrollable, Anita knocks them out (in the case of Stephen Shepherd beating him savagely beforehand), places them in a cardboard box, and [[MurderByCremation burns them alive in a crematorium]], [[DissonantSerenity whistling jauntily]] the entire time. When the police catch onto her, Anita abandons Roger, and takes the three remaining children, Aimee Lynch, Mae Hall, and Charlie to the crematorium, where she tries to force Charlie to help her burn the other two; she then intends to kill him. Guilty of some of the most callous crimes yet shown on the show, and viewing her victims as replaceable, Anita's reasons for doing what she does are never explored, leaving only an utterly hateful [[FlatCharacter cipher]] for the cast and the audience to deal with.
* [[KillerCop Deputy]] [[CorruptHick Ronald Boyd]] from "A Rite of Passage," profiled as a "human predator", kills illegal immigrants because it allows him to assert a sense of power that he otherwise lacks. He lies in wait at border crossings, picks out a straggler, and then chases them through the desert on his ATV until they can no longer fight back, finishing them off with his {{machete|Mayhem}}. When the Hispanic sheriff (whom he loathes for being new to town) starts looking into the missing illegals, Boyd sends her progressively more aggressive "messages" - [[DecapitationPresentation severed heads]] in [[FingerInTheMail boxes]] outside the sheriff's office, a severed head on a pole in her front yard - until he finally kills her for sticking her nose into his business, while ranting that the illegals aren't really missing because "they ain't supposed to be here in the first place." Dismembering her corpse in order to pin the blame on [[TheCartel drug kingpin]] Omar Morales, Boyd proceeds to murder Morales and most of his gang to cover his tracks ([[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain also because they're Hispanic]]). When his partner objects, Boyd shoots him and [[FrameUp places the gun in the hands of the dead Morales]]. Taking offense to the idea that he sees himself as weak, and viewing himself as a total {{badass}}, Boyd makes an average DirtyCop look like an angel.

* [[EvilOldFolks Anita Roycewood]] from "Mosley Lane" is a serial kidnapper and [[WouldHurtAChild child murderer]], who [[LadyMacbeth forces]] her [[HenpeckedHusband submissive husband]], Roger, and first kidnap victim, [[StockholmSyndrome Charlie Hillridge]], to help her abduct and imprison children. Keeping the children locked up in a hidden hallway, [[EvilMatriarch Anita]] renames them, dyes their hair, and is implied to sexually abuse them, using fear, beatings, and threats to the other children to keep them in line. When the children grow too old for her liking, or become uncontrollable, Anita knocks them out (in out, in the case of Stephen Shepherd beating him savagely beforehand), beforehand, places them in a cardboard box, and [[MurderByCremation burns them alive in a crematorium]], [[DissonantSerenity whistling jauntily]] the entire time. When the police catch onto her, Anita abandons Roger, and takes the three remaining children, Aimee Lynch, Mae Hall, and Charlie to the crematorium, where she tries to force Charlie to help her burn the other two; she then intends to kill him.

* [[PsychopathicManchild Benjamin "Cy" Bradstone]] from "Proof" has a mental disability, which makes him unique, but not even slightly sympathetic. [[ObfuscatingStupidity Pretending to be far more handicapped than he is]], Cy lures women out of the public eye, forces them into his shed, [[SerialRapist rapes them]], and then stabs them to death. He first [[EyeScream stabbed their eyes out]], but later evolved to using sulfuric acid to burn away their senses. If they don't like the way he looks, he takes their eyes. If they spit when he kisses them, he takes their sense of taste. If they don't like his smell, he burns out their nostrils. His video journal reveals that he has been like this since he was a [[EnfanteTerrible young boy]], and he gloats that he brutalizes women for the same reason that he used to [[KickTheDog beat his dog]]: [[ForTheEvulz because it's fun]]. We eventually discover that he is targeting women who remind him of his sister-in-law, whom he attempted to molest when they were both teenagers. When his niece puts on a cheerleader costume that reminds him of her mother she becomes [[EvilUncle Cy’s]] final victim. After his arrest, his brother Matt (who has always been supportive of Cy, going so far as to offer to let him move in with him) demands to know why Cy did this; Cy laughs in his face, and tells him that he has [[CainAndAbel always hated Matt]] and was planning to deafen and then kill him one day. A ragingly [[HeManWomanHater misogynistic]] psychopath who just happens to be handicapped, Cy is fully aware of how awful his actions are, as evidenced by this message he leaves for Matt:

* Clark Preston from "A Thin Line" is a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive crooked real estate developer]] who hires crooks to commit crimes in neighborhoods so people will leave them and he can buy up their property dirt-cheap, not caring in the slightest about who gets hurt. One of these families, the Mills, had the father and daughter killed and the mother left in a coma. He then [[ManipulativeBastard recruits the survivor Trevor]] into his mayoral campaign, to add fuel to his blatantly racist platform. He has him murder entire families ([[WouldHurtAChild including a baby in one case]]), then kill drugged black and Hispanic people with the family’s gun and [[DeceasedFallGuyGambit pin it on them]].

* [[TerroristsWithoutACause Hayman Vasher]] from "A Thousand Suns" is an aerospace engineer who is a big admirer of UsefulNotes/RobertOppenheimer, especially how he progressed from socially-awkward to world-renowned. For Vasher, who after being humiliated on a date dropped out of society, this involved building a device which can hack into airplanes and control them. As a "test", analogous to the Manhattan Project's Trinity test, Vasher makes a plane crash in a sparsely-populated area, resulting in over 150 deaths, including the woman who he had dated. As his Hiroshima, Vasher takes control of a plane with over 300 people and plans to crash it into a populated area. He agrees to let the plane land if the BAU calls off fighter jets which have scrambled to shoot the plane down if necessary, but once this happens, [[ILied Vasher tries to crash the plane anyway]], before he and his device are both shot. Vasher was also looking at other flights, meaning that there might have been still other crashes had he not been stopped. [[ItsAllAboutMe Driven only by his need]] for {{attention|Whore}} and [[AGodAmI enjoying "playing God or some other deity", Hayman Vasher, "a mass annihilator…who wants to eradicate life on a large scale", is one of only a few unsubs to successfully have a triple-digit body count.

[[AC:Season 11]]
* [[WesternTerrorists Mitchell Crossford]] from "The Witness" is the son of an anti-government {{cult}} leader and later adopted this extreme ideology. When his half-brother Theo, with whom he was planning to launch terrorist attacks, started having an affair with a married woman, Crossford, enraged, plotted revenge. He acquired [[DeadlyGas sarin gas]] from a disgraced chemist--[[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness who Mitchell then killed]]--and placed sarin on a bus the woman usually rode; she wasn't on the bus that day, but 10 other people were killed. While stalking his brother, Crossford saw Charlie, the woman's husband, murder Theo, and [[ManipulativeBastard manipulated him into becoming his patsy]], threatening to report the murder, while also threatening Charlie's 12-year-old daughter. While he may have planned even more attacks, his main goal was using Charlie to launch a larger sarin attack on the FBI building in Los Angeles. Over a thousand people were at risk, before the FBI successfully evacuated the building and sealed the garage where the sarin was placed.
