->'''Grings Kodai''': I've thoroughly enjoyed playing our little game of tag. However, I already knew it would end this way.\\

'''Kodai''': What do I care?! As long as my visionary powers grow, it's all worth it!\\
'''Ash''': So you don't care what happens to Crown City?!\\
'''Kodai''': It's true that twenty years ago when I touched the Time Ripple, Crown City withered, but no one knows a thing about that, just as no one will know what I've done today. All anyone knows is that I'm doing my level-best to capture the "evil" Pokemon Zoroark. ''(cackles evilly)'' VICTORY IS MINE!! ''(cackles even louder)''

* ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger: Guardian Signs'': [[KnightOfCerebus Purple Eyes]]. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Before we even learn he exists]], he's beaten Rand within an inch of his life and kidnapped both his wife and daughter. Later, he beats the daughter up, too. He eventually mugs the [[AssholeVictim elderly Societea members]], hijacks the villain's plans, makes himself immortal, pumps up Mewtwo's power higher than it should ever be, and then commands Mewtwo to finish off Dr. Edward. And when Rand takes the shot for Edward, Purple Eyes is simply amused and continues to attack anyway, even taunting Rand's daughter about it. After you beat him, he points out that the Sky Fortress is now plummeting and will wipe out all of Oblivia, before [[EvilLaugh laughing]]. Rand's wife said that the ruins she and her daughter were captured and tortured in is the only place that gives her recurring nightmares. In the last Extra Mission, in which an enraged Arceus is passing judgment on the human race, he arrives in person. His imprisonment and constant questioning has not redeemed him, but instead turned him into a MisanthropeSupreme who no longer wishes to rule over all humans, but instead KillAllHumans. He begins preaching to Arceus that it should go through with the destruction, but to allow himself to act as its [[TheDragon Dragon]] due to their similar beliefs about humans, which only enrages Arceus more.

Once he's defeated, Purple Eyes allows himself to act die with the full knowledge that without the Golden Armor's power, the fortress he and the Rangers are on will plummet into the ocean and create a tsunami powerful enough to wipe out Oblivia and everyone in it. Purple Eyes truly comes into his own in the story's last extra mission; after repeated interrogation, Purple Eyes [[MisanthropeSupreme snaps]] and decides the only logical course of action is to [[KillAllHumans exterminate all humanity]] and recreate it [[AGodAmI as its [[TheDragon Dragon]] due supreme god]], attempting to their similar beliefs about humans, which only enrages goad Arceus more.
into killing off all humans whilst leaving himself as their sole survivor. One of the franchise's earliest examples of an OmnicidalManiac and bereft of any redeeming qualities on top of that, Purple Eyes is the [[KnightOfCerebus nastiest villain]] to ever grace the ''Pokémon Ranger'' franchise.

* ''Anime/PokemonArceusAndTheJewelOfLife'' [[ComicBookAdaptation manga retelling]]: [[BigBad Marcus]] lacks the [[WellIntentionedExtremist good intentions]] of his anime counterpart, resulting in a power-hungry monster. Upon learning of Damos acquiring the [[AmplifierArtifact Jewel of Life]] from [[{{God}} Arceus]], Marcus decides to steal it for himself. He plans to do so by using his Bronzong to hypnotize Damos and lure Arceus into a trap, then have all of his Electric-Type Pokemon--all of whom, most prominently [[BullyingADragon Heatran]], are [[BrainwashedAndCrazy under his control]] due to [[MindControlDevice special armor]], with those who try to rebel subject to beatings--[[ShockAndAwe electrocute it to death]]. The initial plan failed, with Arceus retaliating by obliterating everyone in the temple, Marcus included. When the heroes of the present travel to this era to [[BeenThereShapedHistory prevent the event from taking place]], Marcus decides to [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate them into helping him]] and improve on his trap. He would pour [[CementShoes Silver Water]] onto Arceus, while his Pokemon would carry out their usual commands. When the heroes learn of this, they tried to warn Marcus that his action will [[TimeCrash damage the space-time continuum]], only for him to say he doesn't care, that he's even glad even to see this happen as it would make him [[AGodAmI him feel like a god]], and has his Pokemon and soldiers kill them when they try to stop him. When they manage to foil his plan, he [[DrivenToSuicide kills himself]], [[TakingYouWithMe activating a mechanism]] which [[DeadManSwitch upon his death]] would collapse the temple and kill everyone inside it, meaning his last act would cause the deaths of, at the very lease, possibly hundreds of Pokemon and human alike.



* ''Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure'': [[MadScientist Charon]], while a {{greed}}y {{jerkass}} in ''VideoGame/PokemonPlatinum'', is worse here. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment His method of introducing himself]] is to order his agents to suicide bomb a crowded stadium, the explosion potentially destroying the whole town were it to spread. While this fails, his intent is clear. He holds no regard for the lives of others and plans to control the world with money made from selling legendary Pokémon, as well as to extort more money from the masses by threatening them with the power of Giratina. He also does nasty experiments on Pokémon that shuts off their very hearts and essentially turn them into living weapons, Koya's Growlithe being among his victims, and we see him use a bunch of Skuntank under MindControl as explosive weapons against the opposing trainers. [[BadBoss Charon]] doesn't even treat his colleagues within Team Galactic well, as he captures the organization's previous leader, Cyrus, and tries to kill two of his top officers when they leave to find him. Cyrus goes on to rally the remaining agents against Charon, [[EvenEvilHasStandards despite he himself previously trying to destroy the universe]]. Thinking [[ItsAllAboutMe only of himself the whole way through]], Charon ends the series the sole character to reject ThePowerOfFriendship as a concept and thus ends up thoroughly irredeemable.
* ''Manga/PhantomThiefPokemon7'': Team Galactic member [[BigBad Io]] is depicted as a cold, ruthless woman who won't hesitate to eliminate anyone, [[BadBoss even her own subordinates]], standing between her and what she wants. Five years prior to the story, she kidnapped [[TheHero Hiori]]'s [[HalfIdenticalTwins twin sister Lily]], when both kids were only five years old; registered her into Team Galactic; and [[MindRape conducted experiments on her mind]] that wiped her memory of her old life, her family, and even having ever been kidnapped. She also had Lily routinely brainwashed via her Misamagius's powers. When Lily gets her memory back and turns against Team Galactic, Io takes her frustration out of her Number Two by having her Pokemon attack him, calling him worthless before [[WouldHurtAChild attempting to kill both Lily and her brother]]. Io showed no loyalty to her organization's cause and [[TheStarscream sought to usurp control within it]] and then TakeOverTheWorld by exploiting the powers of the Pokémon Darkrai, whose Hypnosis technique would enslave the minds of every living being so that they'd all do her bidding. When warned that this could also ravage the planet and cover it in darkness, Io doesn't care [[ItsAllAboutMe so long as she can reign supreme]]. She is also shown to treat Pokémon as little more than weapons that she can hurt and use to hurt, even forcibly enhancing them to make them serve her purposes better. When Darkrai breaks free from the special Poké Ball she tries to catch it in, she tries to force it under her control.

* ''Anime/PokemonVolcanionAndTheMechanicalMarvel'': [[BigBad Cabinet Minister Jarvis]] is a cruel, scheming man who seeks to usurp control of the Azoth Kingdom through force. Emotionally exploiting the young prince Racel and [[CorruptPolitician plotting sinister machinations beyond the view of Azoth's rulers]]. Jarvis devised a technique known as the Mega Wave, which forcefully locks a Pokemon into its Mega Evolution and to his utter control. Seeking to exploit the power of Magearna, Jarvis launches an attack on the Nebel Plateau and tortures Ash and his friends to force Magearna's compliance in his scheme. Once he has Magearna, Jarvis tears out its heart--forcing a distraught Racel to watch--discards its body, and utilizes Magearna's heart to transform a castle into a flying fortress at his command. Jarvis uses the fortress to begin his attack, directly attempting to wipe out all opposition to him and attempting to break Magearna's lingering will by forcing it to obliterate its own home. Once his plan is ruined, Jarvis remains defiant, abandons the fortress, and tries plunging the fortress into the Plateau itself to kill everything both in the fortress and on the Plateau as an act of spite. Willing to discard allies like Team Rocket once [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness they spend their use]] and happy to try and murder both [[WouldHurtAChild children]] and innocent Pokemon alike, Jarvis cements himself as an ambitious megalomaniac willing to crush anything and anyone [[ItsAllAboutMe so long as he benefits in the end]].

She is also shown to treat Pokémon as little more than weapons that she can hurt and use to hurt, even forcibly enhancing them to make them serve her purposes better. When Darkrai breaks free from the special Poké Ball she tries to catch it in, she tries to force it under her control.

** [[PsychoForHire Pokémon Hunter J]], as her name implies, is a remorseless Pokémon hunter who hunts rare Pokemon to sell on the black market, with little compunction in stealing them from other trainers. To do this, J petrifies the Pokémon and leaves it as a statue she keeps in storage, and is perfectly willing to petrify other humans and leave them petrified. Bearing a callous disregard for human life, J drops a section of her airship containing several of her own men for the purpose of ridding herself of Ash in her first appearance, and later on attempts to directly kill him and his friends several times, having her Salamence set fire to a densely-populated forest for this purpose. J ultimately ends up complicit in a scheme which will result in the ultimate destruction of the universe, and ends as one of the only characters with no humane traits in the 800+ episodes of the anime.
