One of the main themes of ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' series is that [[HumansAreBastards humans can be the biggest monsters]]. While the saga runs mostly on [[GreyAndGrayMorality gray morality]], there are exceptions that reach the [[CompleteMonster highest level]].

->''"Remember your legends. Legends about people missing and returning after a year, only to see the graves of their relatives covered by grass. Are you going to say that they were pure fantasy, things taken from stories? You are wrong. For centuries, people have been kidnapped, snatched by riders, by the Wild Hunt. Abducted, exploited and then thrown away like an empty shell once consumed. But do not expect to be that lucky, Zireael. You will die here, you will not see the graves of your friends."''
-->--'''Eredin Bréacc Glas (King of the Wild Hunt)''' to '''Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon (Ciri)''', ''Literature/LadyOfTheLake''

** [[SerialKiller Cyprian "Whoreson Junior" Willey]] is one of the four crime bosses of the free city of Novigrad and runs the casinos, fighting rings, and brothels ,and is widely regarded as the most cruel and sadistic of the city's four crime bosses, and even evokes disgust from these fellow criminals. He has his men dress up as {{Monster Clown}}s to torment and intimidate the people of Novigrad, including Ciri, Geralt's adopted daughter. Geralt seeks out Whoreson Junior to get her whereabouts and discovers dark secrets along the way. Cyprian works under the orders of King Radovid to undermine the armistice between the gangs of the city and incite gang wars and mass chaos so that Radovid can invade. Cyprian is paid in [[DisposableSexWorker prostitutes]] that he can rape and butcher to his leisure. When invading his hideout, Geralt discovers the grizzly remains strewn about in one of the most nightmarish levels in the game. Ultimately, Geralt discovers Whoreson Junior bathing in the blood of his latest victim, and Geralt, normally rational and stoic, brutally beats him as he [[DirtyCoward pitifully begs for his life]].

*[[LargeAndInCharge Eredin Breacc Glas]], King of TheWildHunt, is the [[GreaterScopeVillain ultimate villain of the Witcher Saga]], the BigBad of [[VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt the third game]], and the ArchEnemy of [[TheHero Geralt of Rivia]]. Leader of the ''Dearg Ruadhri'' (red riders) cavalry, Eredin has led his armies to the [[FantasticRacism genocide of humans]] on the Aen Elle elf worlds. Able to cross over into other worlds, Eredin participates in massacres of anyone not sufficiently Aen Elle and takes innocents as slaves, even children, until they are "empty" inside and broken. Eredin murders his king Auberon and attempts to capture Ciri to control her Elder Blood and allow him to invade all the worlds he wishes. Chasing Ciri, the Hunt regularly slaughters all those who might help her. When he encounters Geralt at the end of the third game, Eredin mocks him with how he'll torture Ciri when he no longer needs her. While Eredin wants to escape the coming apocalypse, his sadism, racism, attempted genocide, and cruelty eliminate any sympathy or {{well intentioned extremis|t}}m and make Eredin without doubt the most evil monster in the worlds of The Witcher.

** The Concerned Citizen, aka [[spoiler:Hubert Rejk]], from the "Carnal Sins" sidequest, is a [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist]] SerialKiller dedicated to the {{cult}}-like [[CorruptChurch Order of the Eternal Fire]] and shares their belief that Novigrad is a fallen city. Targeting people he believes have blasphemed against his religion, the Concerned Citizen [[ColdBloodedTorture tortures his victims]] by [[EyeScream removing their eyeballs and placing burning coals within their empty sockets]], forcing them to drink formaldehyde, and cutting out their hearts. He [[KnightTemplar believes these horrific murders will act as a form of shock treatment]], awakening the city to its decline and causing its populace to repent. He first comes to [[TheHero Geralt's]] attention after brutally assaulting and nearly murdering his friend, the bard Priscilla. Other victims include a lecherous dwarf, a lecturer on theology who criticized the Church, an old woman who had a crisis of faith after witnessing the church burn people alive, beggars, street walkers, and [[WouldHurtAChild orphan children]]. When Geralt gets too close to the truth, the Concerned Citizen [[FrameUp frames another for his crimes]], and should Geralt fall for the ruse, the killer leaves behind a final body and a mocking note detailing how he's going to move on to a smaller village and continue his work. Should Geralt uncover his true identity, the Concerned Citizen reveals himself to be a [[spoiler:Higher Vampire]], meaning that he is such a zealot that [[BoomerangBigot he willingly supports a religion]] that wants to completely wipe out [[spoiler:him and all his fellow non-humans]].
