* ''Film/JumpingShip'': In this Creator/DisneyChannel original film, [[BigBad Frakes]] is an Australian [[RuthlessModernPirates pirate]] whose modus operandi involves kidnapping the rich and extorting them for money. Once he's satisfied, Frakes and his gang [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness murder their victims]] as opposed to letting them go and [[FedToTheBeast feed their bodies to sharks]]. Frakes is intent on repeating this process to Michael and the [[WouldHurtAChild young Tommy]] after finding their wallet, stranding them on an island and bartering with Tommy's life to goad Michael into doing his bidding. Once Michael tries to trick Frakes into letting Tommy go for gold that doesn't really exist, Frakes simply [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy draws his gun on them and tries to have them lead him there]]. In the climax, Frakes abandons one of his crewmates to die in a hole after she breaks her leg, and chases after the protagonists himself, fully intent on simply shooting Michael dead in a show of [[VillainousBreakdown spectacular rage]]. Frakes is uncaring that one of his victims is a child, displaying ruthlessly [[TheSociopath sociopathic behavior]] and treating the whole affair as a "project." Cruel and {{greed}}y, Frakes was as close to a {{serial killer}} as a live-action Disney movie could get.

* ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'': [[HangingJudge Judge Claude Frollo]] is likely one of the [[KnightOfCerebus most evil characters]] the company has ever invented. In the film's opening, he pursues a young woman on horseback, and pushes her onto steps of the church, causing her to tumble to her death. [[WouldHurtAChild He tries to drown her infant son, Quasimodo, in the well for being ugly,]] but the archdeacon stops him. Solely out of fear of being punished for his crimes, Frollo takes the boy in, [[AbusiveParents keeping him under strict rule, isolation, and emotional abuse]]. He initially seems to have [[StalkerWithACrush fallen in love]] with the young gypsy girl Esmeralda, but when she rejects him, he decides she must burn in hell. Taking his anger out on all gypsies, Frollo tries to burn an innocent family alive for harboring them. After that, Frollo tries to have a massive section of the city burned so he can kill Esmerelda. Even being a classic case of KnightTemplar, his actions cast his "good intentions" as being sham and hollow.

Here's just a short list of his atrocities: lying to Big Baby and Chuckles that their owner had replaced them just so he wouldn't be alone in being lost, ordering the resetting of Buzz Lightyear, watching him beat down his former friends with a cold sense of satisfaction, beating Chatter Telephone to a pulp in order to find out about Woody's escape plan, and, in the climax of the film, [[MoralEventHorizon he leaves Andy's toys to burn in the Incinerator after they risked their lives to save him]], and he does so with a sadistic smile, a mocking salute and while yelling out "Where's your kid now, sheriff?". And while he does have a tragic backstory, there's a scene where Woody directly calls him out on how weak it is (his owner replacing him with a new Lotso was, considering she doesn't know toys are alive, a sign of how she loved Lotso; Woody says that it was Lotso who abandoned her). What makes it worse is there was almost no warning that Lotso was going to be the villain going into the movie. Sid and Stinky Pete to a degree had a glimpse of their villainy in previews but Lotso was promoted as a grandfatherly figure in trailers and commercials. Finally, he is the only villain in the franchise that never sought redemption. In fact, he only faked gratitude when Woody saved him, and ultimately he has gone down in the Pixar history as the most vicious villain that the company has created.
