* ''[[Film/TransformersAgeOfExtinction Age of Extinction]]'': {{CIA}} agent Harold Attinger is the creator of "Cemetery Wind," a black-ops group taking it upon itself to wipe out all Transformers upon the planet regardless of faction, all out of nothing more than Attinger's FantasticRacism. Attinger entered a deal between himself, Lockdown, and Joshua Joyce's Kinetic Solutions Incorporated where Lockdown gives the remains of any Transformer he murders to Joyce for production into man-made Transformers, and Attinger would trade Optimus for the Seed needed to create more man-made Transformers to sell to the US Army. At first, [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist Attinger]] may come across as a WellIntentionedExtremist, but given that he worked with Lockdown, wanted to create Transformers of his own, would have millions of innocents killed by The Seed, along with his own attempts to kill any humans who could get in his way-such as Tessa Yeager by proxy of his Dragon Savoy and Cade Yeager at his own hand--and ordering Savoy to murder witnesses of his presence in Hong Kong, it is clear Attinger is a {{hypocrite}}, if not merely a StrawHypocrite, out to [[{{greed}} get rich]].

** ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye More Than Meets the Eye]]'': [[AxCrazy Pharma]] is a former [[MadDoctor Autobot Medic]] who [[FaceHeelTurn went evil]].

* [[TheAntichrist Megatronus Prime]] is known to all and sundry as [[FallenAngel The Fallen]]. If Unicron is the UltimateEvil, than The Fallen is [[{{Satan}} his Archangel Lucifer]]. Created by Primus as one of the original Thirteen Primes, [[FallenHero The Fallen]] became obsessed with the notions of [[OmnicidalManiac entropy and decay]], ultimately attempting to murder his creator after [[FaceHeelTurn betraying him]] to Unicron. Escaping the [[SealedEvilInACan prison he was trapped]] in some seven million years before the 21st century, The Fallen visited the G1 continuity, gathered several Decepticon outcasts and kidnapped four Transformers, through which he tried to channel enough energy to break the Seal of Primus, awaken Unicron, and end all reality, boasting that his victims were but "[[AGodAmI casualties in the wars of the Gods]]." Sharing his master's unquenchable thirst for destruction, [[TheDragon The Fallen]] is precisely the kind of servant that [[GodOfEvil Unicron]] most needs.

* [[ComicBook/TransformersGenerationOne Dreamwave]] ''[[ComicBook/TransformersGenerationOne Generation 1]]'' [[ComicBook/TransformersGenerationOne Series]]:
** [[TheAntichrist Megatronus Prime]] is known to all and sundry as [[FallenAngel The Fallen]], and made his debut in these comics. If Unicron is the UltimateEvil, than The Fallen is [[{{Satan}} his Archangel Lucifer]]. Created by Primus as one of the original Thirteen Primes, [[FallenHero The Fallen]] became obsessed with the notions of [[OmnicidalManiac entropy and decay]], ultimately attempting to murder his creator after [[FaceHeelTurn betraying him]] to Unicron.

** [[GeneralRipper General Robert Hallo]] was the head of Military Development for the United States Army. Obsessed with the idea of controlling the Transformers, Hallo had Adam Rook create a program that could remove the free will from Transformers, and hatched a plan to blow up the ''Ark II'' and gain a new robot army. After [[HeKnowsTooMuch killing a man who attempted to blow the whistle on the plan]], Hallo successfully destroyed the ''Ark II'', killing all the humans on board and sending the Autobots and captured Decepticons into the Arctic Ocean. However, Adam decided to keep the program for himself, and disappeared not long after. Years later, after discovering Rook has been using the program to build a criminal empire, Hallo convinced Spike Witwicky to revive Optimus Prime. However, when showed that he had free will and refused to follow Hallo's orders, he had Optimus, his Autobots and the Decepticons hit with an air strike, intending to kill them all. Unfortunately for Hallo, not only did they survive, an enraged group of Decepticons began rampaging through San Francisco. To be rid of the Transformers once and for all, Hallo ordered the city to be nuked, and when Spike burst in to stop him, Hallo holds him at gunpoint and [[ForcedToWatch forces him to watch]] as the city and Transformers are destroyed. When Spike accused him of only caring about power, [[CardCarryingVillain Hallo agreed with him]], saying power is the only thing keeping [[KnightTemplar Spike and his family safe]].
** The aforementioned Adam Rook, aka Lazarus, is just as bad. After designing a program that would [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil remove the free will from Transformers]], Adam decided to render the deaths of everyone aboard the ''Ark II'' meaningless by stealing the program and disappearing before Hallo had a chance to use it. Motivated by {{greed}}, Adam took the name Lazarus and built a criminal empire, using the program to [[ArmsDealer force Transformers to work for dictators and terrorists]], helping them stomp out their enemies without casualties on their side. He even forced good guys like Bumblebee, Ratchet and Ironhide to work for killers. Sometimes, he would take "customers" on tours of his base, and would make the Transformers kneel to him to show his power over them. After three years of running this successful criminal empire, Lazarus had a group of Transformers slaughter an oil refinery in the Arctic as a demonstration to potential buyers, and [[LackOfEmpathy casually began auctioning off all of them not long after]].

* Creator/{{IDW|Publishing}} [[Film/TransformersFilmSeries Film Adaptations]]:
** ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'': [[BigBad The Fallen]] himself is portrayed as even worse than his film counterpart. Once a member of the Thirteen Primes, The Fallen came to believe [[AGodAmI he was destined to become the most powerful of his brothers]] by re-powering the Allspark, then using it to make himself all-powerful. Using the Star Harvester, The Fallen drains the energy from a sun, uncaring that it leads to an entire planet dying, and blames it on one of his own servants when confronted about it. After attempting to use the Star Harvester once more, The Fallen comes to the realization that he no longer needs his Prime "brothers" or the Allspark, prompting instead to travel the universe searching for sentient life, then [[OmnicidalManiac slaughtering countless worlds of their sentient species]], [[TheCollector absorbing the knowledge, weapons, and strategies]] of the billions he slays as he goes along. After butchering his Prime brothers, The Fallen attempts to use the Star Harvester to [[EarthShatteringKaboom wipe out the entire Earth]], [[{{Sadist}} taking extra time to crush humans underfoot while laughing]]. Though [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away for thousands of years]], The Fallen continues his wicked ways, as he [[TheManBehindTheMan reaches out]] and [[TheCorrupter corrupts]] the noble Megatron into waging a war against Optimus Prime and the Autobots, leading to countless deaths and the destruction of Cybertron itself. The Fallen hopes to return to Earth and use the Star Harvester to destroy it for good this time, solely as a final act of spite toward his brothers.
** ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'': Dylan Gould, [[AdaptationalVillainy unlike in the film]], is portrayed as a sadistic psychopath with delusions of grandeur. Having willingly allied with Decepticons years back, Gould covers up the Decepticons' plans and presence from the public eye, having anyone who attempts to learn the truth murdered by his personal Decepticon attack dog, [[FeatheredFiend Laserbeak]]. Once the Decepticons reveal themselves and attack the Earth, Gould uses Sam Witwicky to spy on the Autobots under threat of slaughtering his girlfriend, Carly, and giddily gives the order for the Autobots to be shot down while they are attempting to leave the Earth. Masterminding the invasion of Chicago, Gould has the Decepticons kill countless people and destroy much of the city while turning it into a fortress. Gould ultimately plans to assist the Decepticons in transporting as much of humanity to Cybertron as possible, then use them as slaves to rebuild Cybertron while Gould [[AGodAmI lords over them as their master]]. Even when the Autobots and humans begin defeating the Decepticons, Gould still activates the portal to bring Cybertron to Earth, completely eliminating any possible claims he had to not being fully complicit in the Decepticons' actions. [[FauxAffablyEvil Always wearing a smile and having a witty quip on hand]] to cover up his [[ItsAllAboutMe raving egomania]], Gould truly [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters represents the very worst humans have to offer]].

* [[PhysicalGod Unicron]] is an ancient [[PlanetEater planet-eating]] Transformer that was created by a MadScientist called Primacron. Primacron created Unicron to help him take over the universe, but he rebelled and destroyed Primacron's lab. Unicron travelled through space and devoured many inhabited worlds, including the planet of Lithone. After learning of Optimus Prime's death and his passing of the Matrix of Leadership, Unicron tracked down Megatron and tasked him to destroy it, as it was the only thing that could stand in his way. Torturing Megatron into accepting his deal, Unicron reformatted him into Galvatron and made him more susceptible to his psychic assaults. Galvatron, tired of being Unicron's pawn, tried to use the Matrix to turn Unicron into his slave, but it had no effect in his hands. In retaliation, Unicron started [[OmnicidalManiac destroying Cybertron and attacked both Autobot and Decepticon alike]]. Unicron was eventually defeated by a Matrix-wielding Rodimus and only his head remained to orbit Cybertron, a testament to the [[GreaterScopeVillain Transformer]] that made even the mighty [[BigBad Megatron]] beg for mercy.

** [[AxCrazy Overlord]], debuting as the BigBad in ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersLastStandOfTheWreckers Last Stand of the Wreckers]]'', is without a doubt the most depraved Decepticon to ever grace Megatron's ranks. Though [[SuperSoldier always a terrifying force of savagery]], [[TheDreaded known and feared by friend and foe alike due to his psychotic brutality on the battlefield]] where he [[BloodKnight regularly slaughters dozens of enemies with his bare hands]], Overlord's truly wicked nature comes out in full when he is sent to Garrus-9 to oversee the rescue of Decepticon prisoners. Deciding instead to [[TheCaligula take over the entire planet]], Overlord executes the current Decepticon general, alongside any of his supporters, before turning the planet into a hellish [[POWCamp concentration camp]] occupied by hundreds of Autobot prisoners. Overlord [[{{Sadist}} takes sick pleasure]] in the various atrocities he perpetrates against his defenseless prisoners, from dismemberment, to public executions, to "releasing" them, then chasing them across the planet in "hunts", all of which he subjects his own troops to should they annoy him. Having a pathological fear of defeat, Overlord's entire motive stems from [[EvilIsPetty always losing to Megatron in sparring matches]], and to ensure he can't "lose" to the Wreckers when they come to rescue his prisoners, Overlord has all 50 of the surviving prisoners executed. Returning later in the ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye More Than Meets the Eye]]'' [[ArcVillain story arc]], Overlord escapes confinement and shreds his way through dozens of Autobots before [[spoiler:Rewind]] [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices himself]] to take down Overlord, though not before Overlord [[AnArmAndALeg rips all of his limbs off]] then bites his head in two, all of which he later taunts [[Rewind]]'s spouse with. In his final appearance, Overlord once again oversees a horrifying war campaign against the Autobots, culminating in [[BadBoss him ditching his allies to their fates]] when he grows bored of the proceedings. Overlord is an abomination of a Decepticon who horrifies and disgusts everyone he meets, his own teammates included, something he laughs about every chance he gets.

* ''Transformers/G.I. Joe'', by John Ney Rieber: [[BigBad Cobra Commander]] continues to prove himself capable of being an irredeemable psychopath when it comes to adaptations of his [[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHero original iteration]]. With Cobra serving as a stand-in for the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi Party]], Commander runs his empire with the same cruel egomania that the Nazis were known for. After discovering the Decepticons hidden in an ancient monastery whose inhabitants he has just had slaughtered, Commander forcefully takes control of the Decepticons and forces them to lay waste to numerous countries across Europe, including Berlin and Rome. Any survivors of these massacres, [[WouldHurtAChild including the children]], are forced into slave camps, and, later, used as {{human shield}}s against the Commander's enemies. After forcing a Decepticon to exhaust all his energy in wantonly laying waste to enemies and [[BadBoss allies]] alike, the Commander reveals his plan to use the Decepticons to institute a new world order under his rule where only the strong will survive and serve under his thumb. Cobra Commander is a megalomaniac whose status as a stand-in for [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler the Nazi leadership]] makes him one of the most realistic, and wicked, baddies throughout the ''Franchise/GIJoe'' franchise.

* ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersLastStandOfTheWreckers Last Stand of the Wreckers]]'': [[BigBad Overlord]], who later returns in ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye More Than Meets the Eye]]'', is one of the most powerful Decepticons, but unlike the others, [[AxCrazy he just wants to kill anything and everything he can, in as many sick and twisted ways as possible]]. He [[TheDreaded horrifies all Cybertronians]], Autobot and Decepticon alike, and Megatron was so wary of him that he had Shockwave alter his brain so that Overlord could never beat him. When he took over Garrus 9, he essentially turned it into a cross between a concentration camp and [[GladiatorGames a gladiatorial arena]], with torture, murder, and prisoners being forced to fight to the death for his own sick amusement. Anyone who won 12 matches [[SadisticChoice could either]] commit suicide, or fight [[PersonOfMassDestruction Overlord himself]].

Returning later returns in the ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye More Than Meets the Eye]]'', is one Eye]]'' [[ArcVillain story arc]], Overlord escapes confinement and shreds his way through dozens of Autobots before [[spoiler:Rewind]] [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices himself]] to take down Overlord, though not before Overlord [[AnArmAndALeg rips all of his limbs off]] then bites his head in two, all of which he later taunts [[Rewind]]'s spouse with. In his final appearance, Overlord once again oversees a horrifying war campaign against the Autobots, culminating in [[BadBoss him ditching his allies to their fates]] when he grows bored of the most powerful Decepticons, but unlike the others, [[AxCrazy he just wants to kill anything and everything he can, in as many sick and twisted ways as possible]]. He [[TheDreaded horrifies all Cybertronians]], Autobot and proceedings. Overlord is an abomination of a Decepticon alike, who horrifies and Megatron was so wary of him that disgusts everyone he had Shockwave alter his brain so that Overlord could never beat him. When he took over Garrus 9, he essentially turned it into a cross between a concentration camp and [[GladiatorGames a gladiatorial arena]], with torture, murder, and prisoners being forced to fight to the death for meets, his own sick amusement. Anyone who won 12 matches [[SadisticChoice could either]] commit suicide, or fight [[PersonOfMassDestruction Overlord himself]].

''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye More Than Meets the Eye]]'': [[AxCrazy Pharma]] is a former [[MadDoctor Autobot Medic]] who [[FaceHeelTurn went evil]]. After saving one of the main character's lives, he became the head medic at a medical facility on the planet Delphi. There he received death threats from an elite Decepticon unit who threatened to overrun the place, and [[WellIntentionedExtremist began bribing them with organs]], first from dead bots but later he began killing living ones. Eventually [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope it becomes too much]], and he has two other Decepticons unleash a plague on the facility to kill everyone and cover up his crimes. When he's revealed, he shoots a life-support, sending about 20 patients into near death states to distract everyone. He then tries to kill Ratchet twice before [[DisneyVillainDeath being thrown off the facility]]. He survives the fall and is recruited into the group of Chief Justice Tyrest, who drilled a hole in his head and is trying to destroy all Transformers he considers inferior; all the Decepticons admit to being freaked out by him. When he finds Ratchet again, he separates Ratchet's head and spark from his body and starts torturing him. To prove he is a better medic, he has one of his co-workers from Delphi, Ambulon, [[spoiler:Ambulon]], [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe sliced in half]], vertically from head to crotch, with a {{chainsaw|Good}}, and tells Ratchet to fix him. Ambulon [[spoiler:Ambulon]] dies in agony before the chainsaw leaves him. Later Pharma shoots Brainstorm.

** [[GreaterScopeVillain Unicron]] is a powerful and ancient Transformer who feeds upon [[PlanetEater worlds]] and the negative emotions of others. Disguising himself as one of Cybertron's moons, Unicron created the Mini-Cons to escalate the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. Hoping to consume both sides once he regained enough power from their conflict, Unicron's plans were foiled when the Mini-Cons gained free will and abandoned Cybertron. Unicron slumbered for millions of years before the Mini-Cons were discovered on Earth. Unicron soon sent his herald Sideways to Earth to keep the war going and help restore him to his full power. Once fully awakened, Unicron attacked Cybertron, killed Starscream, and briefly stripped the Mini-Cons of their free will. Although he was defeated thanks to [[EnemyMine the combined efforts of the Autobots and Decepticon]]s, Unicron returned with a vengeance. Before the events of ''[[Anime/TransformersEnergon Energon]]'', Unicron devoured the home world of Alpha Q and all of its inhabitants. Unicron was heavily damaged when Scorponok [[EarthShatteringKaboom blew up the planet]] in order to stop him, but he was eventually revived by Megatron, who had hoped to turn him into a weapon. [[EvilIsNotAToy Unicron instead possessed Megatron]] and went off to destroy several planets that Alpha Q had managed to restore. Despite having the ability to restore the planets that he had previously destroyed, Unicron instead prefers to use his god-like powers to achieve [[OmnicidalManiac the destruction of space itself]].
