The Claw, throughout the series, hijacks an undersea lab to use its powers to try and wipe out coastal cities; tries to seize a NATO memory core to disable their defenses; coldly orders Norris's young friend Too Much [[WouldHurtAChild murdered]]; attempts to seize a powerful laser robot to use it to attack and devastate Tokyo and orders a train full of people transporting it spitefully destroyed; and steals a shuttle to try and extort billions of dollars out of all the world's major powers lest he use a KillSat to obliterate all of the capital cities of each powerful country around the world. Throughout the series, the Claw regularly [[BadBoss tortures and murders his own minions with aplomb]] and is happy to claim as many civilian lives as it takes to further his own nefarious agenda.

* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'': [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Verminous Skumm]] is a [[YouDirtyRat disgusting]] [[RodentOfUnusualSize rat-thing]] whose actions are [[KnightOfCerebus almost always portrayed in a much worse light than those of the other eco-villains]]. "Mind Pollution" had him peddling mind-affecting drugs to teenagers (one of whom was [[spoiler: Linka's cousin]], who died as an indirect consequence of his intoxication) just for the joy of ruining their lives and those of their friends and families. "A Formula for Hate" had him harassing a kid who's HIV positive and spread lies about AIDS just because the kid's an easy target. Another episode has him trying to force toxic food down the captured Planeteers' mouths to kill them in a needlessly and horrifically painful way. "If It's Doomsday, This Must Be Belfast" has him planting a Nuclear Bomb in Jerusalem's Temple Mount, [[UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict baiting an Israeli or a Palestinian to set it off]] (as well as bringing nukes into UsefulNotes/TheTroubles and [[UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra apartheid South Africa]]). Overall, while the other villains are obsessed with environmental destruction for [[{{Greed}} their own benefits]], Skumm is a {{sadist}} who delights in hurting others [[ForTheEvulz for laughs]].

** [[FauxAffablyEvil Zarm]], [[GodOfEvil the Spirit of War and Destruction]], is arguably the strongest and most deadly adversary of Gaia and the Planeteers. A former Spirit of the Earth exiled by Gaia, [[EvilCounterpart Zarm]] dedicates himself to bringing ruin and destruction in all forms to Gaia and all she protects out of vengeful spite, having consumed at least one planet to the tides of destruction and constantly attempting to do the same to Earth. Zarm attempts to initiate all-out nuclear war on Earth; painfully reverts Gaia to a withered old lady incapable of stopping the Earth from dying and taking over the Earth for a ten-year-period of time where the Earth has become desiccated and ruined; coins a strategy he calls "Scorched Earth" by [[TheCorrupter convincing world leaders to obliterate their own land and people]] (and claims to have been "[[TheManBehindTheMan a part]] of [[HistoricalRapSheet every important tyrant in history]]"); and nearly dooms the Planeteers' efforts to stop an alternate timeline where the Eco-Villains' descendants rule the planet by smugly ordering a young girl Ma-Ti saves [[WouldHurtAChild murdered]]. A sadist [[CardCarryingVillain drunk on his own capacity for destruction]], Zarm is one of the single greatest sources of human misery within the show.
** The
[[NamesToRunAwayFrom appropriately-named Verminous Skumm]] is a [[RodentsOfUnusualSize humanoid rat-man]] who, despite being far less powerful than the aforementioned [[PhysicalGod Zarm]], manages to be just as evil. [[YouDirtyRat disgusting]] [[RodentOfUnusualSize rat-thing]] whose actions are [[KnightOfCerebus almost always portrayed Taking a sick pleasure in a much worse light than those of the other eco-villains]]. "Mind Pollution" had him polluted and festering]], Skumm's schemes vary from willingly endangering and trying to destroy entire cities, and include deliberately trying to destroy an entire city with a cloud of acid rain and flooding Venice with oversized, carnivorous rats; peddling mind-affecting mind-altering drugs to teenagers (one of whom was [[spoiler: and even murdering Linka's cousin]], who died as an indirect consequence cousin Boris through them; attempting to bait two sides of his intoxication) just for the joy of ruining their lives and those of their friends and families. "A Formula for Hate" had him harassing UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict into using a kid who's HIV positive and spread lies about AIDS just because the kid's an easy target. Another episode has him trying to force toxic food down the captured Planeteers' mouths to kill them nuclear bomb in a needlessly and horrifically painful way. "If It's Doomsday, This Must Be Belfast" has him planting a Nuclear Bomb in Jerusalem's Temple Jerusalem Mount, [[UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict baiting an Israeli or a Palestinian to set it off]] (as as well as bringing nukes into UsefulNotes/TheTroubles and [[UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra apartheid South Africa]]). Overall, while Africa]]; and attempting to flood the other villains are obsessed entire world with environmental destruction for [[{{Greed}} their own benefits]], his "Rat Rot" chemical to turn everyone into his mutated rat slaves. Skumm's end goal is to destroy the civilized world and enslave what remains to his mutated RatMen followers to rule over them all as a king. Happily admitting "[[CardCarryingVillain I'm ignorance; I'm fear; I'm hate]]" and taking delight in everything from [[KickTheDog ruining the life of a single person]]--a teenager with AIDS--for giggles, to the attempted annihilation of millions of lives, Skumm is a {{sadist}} who delights in hurting others [[ForTheEvulz for laughs]].stands out as the darkest of the recurring Eco-Villains due to his propensity to target people rather than the environment.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTaleOfDespereaux'': In TheFilmOfTheBook, [[EvilAlbino Boticelli Remorso]] is the [[EvilOldFolks cruel leader]] of the lower rat world. Believing the only true meaning of life is [[{{Sadist}} other people's suffering]], he forces innocent mice, such as the protagonist, [[WouldHurtAChild Despereaux]], into incredibly one-sided [[GladiatorGames gladiator-like games]] in a Colosseum, pitting them against a gigantic (to them) cat where the only outcome is being eaten and dying in front of a crowd of bloodthirsty rats. He despises [[DamselInDistress Princess Pea]] for no apparent reason, and as such orders his hundreds of rats to [[ImAHumanitarian eat her]], trample her and cause her great pain. A detail throughout the movie that adds to Boticelli's status as a monster is the skulls and bones littered throughout Ratworld; it is made clear this is his and his subordinate's doing. Throughout all of these events, Boticelli is happy with it, because, as mentioned, he [[AxCrazy loves other people's suffering]].

Hammer also tries to discredit Tenrec by trying to cause a bunch of Triceratops to stampede and kill people in a mining town. Unhappy with taking orders from Scharnhorst, Hammer hijacks a [[KillSat killer satellite]] and plans to use it to [[TheStarscream destroy the City in the Sea]], so that he can take over. Later Hammer discovers a boy who can control dinosaurs and wants to use him in his poaching business. To test the boy's skills, Hammer [[WouldHurtAChild throws him a pit with a hungry raptor and sees if he can control it]]. In his final appearance, Hammer uses some stolen dynamite to try to flush out some dinosaurs, but this causes a wildfire instead. The wildfire is heading towards some gas wells Scharnhorst recently constructed and if the fire reaches the wells, it will cause an explosion that will devastate the jungle, resulting in mass starvation for the City in the Sea. Scharnhorst orders [[EnemyMine Hammer to work with Tenrec to fix this problem]], by helping Tenrec use nitroglycerin to create a barrier between the fire and the wells. However, Hammer intents to kill Tenrec instead and steal the nitroglycerin for himself, not caring that his actions have endangered millions of lives.

* ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'': [[SpacePirates Mutilor]], from "When Strikes Mutilor", is a brutal mercenary who takes over a ship from a peaceful race called the Aquians and attacks Earth, planning to drain every drop of water from the world to sell it off, saying that if earth dies as a result, then that's just business. When the heroic SWAT Kats interfere, Mutilor tries to [[ElectricTorture torture them to death with electricity]], and when the ship is taken, Mutilor attempts to destroy it out of spite so that it crashes into Earth and causes a devastating catastrophe that could easily kill every cat on the planet.

* ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'': ''WesternAnimation/SwatKATS'':
** [[DiabolicalMastermind Dark Kat]] is one of the Swat Kats' most recurring, and wicked, villains. A [[BombThrowingAnarchists complete madman]] obsessed with the death of the Swat Kats and the [[ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil destruction of Megakat City]], Dark Kat is [[EstablishingCharacterMoment introduced]] trying to use a [[NukeEm nuclear weapon]] to annihilate Megakat City and its thousands of residents, attempting to force Lieutenant Feral to watch the carnage as it unfolds. Later attempting to turn the Swat Kats into ground meat while using their jet to frame them for opening fire on civilians and blowing up entire buildings, Dark Kat follows this up by convincing Razer he severely wounded innocents to throw him off his game while Dark Kat uses a robotic arachnid to attack and hopefully tear Megakat City to shreds. In his arguably worst outing, Dark Kat makes an alliance with the below-mentioned Dr. Viper, using him to rebuild the Metallikats then install chips in them that [[BadBoss allow Dark Kat to torture them at his leisure]]. Using the Metallikats and Viper, Dark Kat lures the Swat Kats, Feral, and assistant mayor Callie Briggs into a trap to kill them all, ordering the Metallikats to kill Viper when [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he outlives his usefulness]], and ultimately attempts to blow up the entire base as a last ditch effort to kill the Swat Kats, their friends, and all of Dark Kat's own allies in one fell swoop.
** [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. Viper]] was once [[MadScientist Elrod Purvis]], a greedy scientist whose plan to sell the Viper Mutagen to the highest bidder ended with his supposed death and subsequent mutation into the evil Viper. In his schemes to destroy Megakat City and replace it with a festering "Megaswamp City", Viper regularly attempts to mutate and murder all he can through his chemical weapons and monsters; [[TransformationTrauma painfully transforms]] one-shot villain Morbulus into a mindless bacteria creature that he looses on Megakat City, leading to dozens of deaths, including that of Viper's former colleague Zyme; attempts to drown the entire city in toxic spores; teams up with the aforementioned Dark Kat; and finally floods the city with mutative chemicals in a bid to mutate everyone within the city. Regularly murdering innocents in his attempted conquest and seeing beauty only in the fetid and festering, Dr. Viper was about as remorselessly evil as his sinister appearance would suggest.

The former slave of [[GreaterScopeVillain Sslither]], Metlar [[TheStarscream overthrows and imprisons his former master]] before waging a genocidal war against the Mutores to TakeOverTheWorld. Awakened from his [[SealedEvilInACan seal]] eons later, Metlar launches an all-out attack on Earth with his fellow Inhumanoids, razing a Soviet weapons department to a smoldering heap and stealing several cluster missiles while having his servants attack and destroy all they can. Metlar's ultimate goal is to use the missiles to obliterate the crust of the Earth and drown the entire world in fire, killing everything—[[BadBoss his own loyal servants not excluded]]--so he can rule over the ashes that remain. Throughout the rest of the series, Metlar brutalizes and threatens to torture his own minions for every slight and attempts to destroy everything he can get his fiery talons on.
** [[MakeThemRot D'Compose]], Metlar's terrifying [[TheDragon second-in-command]], is a hulking, [[NonHumanUndead undead]] monstrosity who pulled an entire city underground to turn it into his personal domain, killing everyone who lived there and reducing the city's knights into his undead slaves, cursed to wander the ruins of the town forevermore. Able to painfully transform anyone he touches into his undead slaves, D'Compose demonstrates his powers on the noble scientist Sandra Shore and tries to use her to kill her own friends, eagerly decomposing anyone he can whilst aiding Metlar in his conquest. D'Compose's vilest actions come when he has Blackthorne Shore amass countless disaffected teenagers into a cult in his name, [[WouldHurtAChild reducing them all to his decomposed slaves]] and having them attack the nearby city, proclaiming his intention to shroud the world in darkness and turn all that lives into the undead.
** The aforementioned [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Blackthorne]] Shore is a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive wealthy industrialist]] who came across the secrets of the Inhumanoids. Blackthorne attempts to free them to use them to take control of the world, allowing them to first wreak death and destruction at their whim. When his own sister Sandra is turned into an undead monster by D'Compose, Blackthorne acts horrified--but then abandons the heroes to die when they try to save her so he can take control of Metlar, settling for allying with him to present him with a way to destroy most of the world so Blackthorne can rule over the remainder. After being foiled, Blackthorne eventually starts a {{cult}} with D'Compose, convincing numerous young men and women to submit themselves to the evil Inhumanoid to be changed into his undead slaves. Blackthorne continues to try to control the Inhumanoids and kill the heroes in his quest to dominate the world, [[CardCarryingVillain fully admitting]] that he himself is an utterly evil, monstrous human being [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters as wicked as any Inhumanoid]].

Kwodahn's crimes range from granting Bragan armies of demons he uses to slaughter opposing armies, to unleashing a soul-devouring demon onto a province, to later trying to turn an entire city into statue-like zombies. His evil not limited to mass murder and corruption, Kwodahn once sought the sword of Excalibur, and, when the noble Prince Erwann refused his request, Kwodahn first tried to kidnap the man's infant daughter, before settling for murdering his wife for rejecting him. When Bragan is beaten and all their plans ousted, Kwodahn murders Bragan then tries to corrupt and turn the young Arthus into becoming his new servant, before finally flying into a rage and unleashing his forces onto the entire kingdom with orders to kill every living thing they come across.

* ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'':
** [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters Alpha]] was once the top agent for the Men in Black; however, after getting his hands on an alien device known as the Cosmic Integrator, he [[FallenHero began his path of evil]] that leads him to become the monster he is in the present. Originally offering his partner, Agent Kay, a team up to use the Cosmic Integrator for immoral schemes, Alpha coldly gunned down his pupil when he refused Alpha's offer. Alpha went on to butcher aliens across the galaxy, ripping off or tearing out parts of their bodies that he would then fuse to his own biology via the Cosmic Integrator, with his most targeted part being the heads of aliens, attaching them to his torso while [[AndIMustScream they stay conscious of their current state but unable to do anything of consequence]] to help themselves. Throughout the series, Alpha regularly mutilates aliens, nearly kills Agent Kay and his partner Jay in various sadistic ways, and murdered at least one human to steal his body parts. Trying numerous times to subjugate the Earth by way of mass murder, from using a KillSat to trying to flood half the planet, Alpha ultimately allies with the psychopathic Vangus to lead a full-scale assault on Earth, laying siege to numerous cities and causing countless amounts of destruction, all in his quest for total domination of first his own planet, then the galaxy. A [[TheSociopath sociopath]] with a lust for power above all else, Alpha was an arrogant, manipulative genius who used his intelligence for nothing but his own gain.
** The aforementioned [[AliensAreBastards Vangus]] is the leader of the Ixion Federation, a race of planet-plundering aliens who value oil as an extremely valuable commodity and go from planet to planet draining them dry of their oil. Vangus sets his eyes on Earth and strikes up a deal with the traitorous MIB agent Alpha to invade Earth and steal it of its oil, leaving what remains of the Earth itself for Alpha to dictate. Vangus grows tired of waiting after Alpha postpones the invasion and, after a failed attempt to scout out oil fields which leads to his capture, Vangus breaks out in the series finale and teams up with Alpha to invade the Earth. Vangus sets his forces to obliterate both the UN and the Washington Monument before leading his forces in an all-out invasion on Earth, ravaging cities all across the world. Out of sheer impatience with the continued resistance, Vangus ultimately attempts to detonate a bomb to wipe out all life on Earth to make the planet's oil ooze to the crust, callously betraying Alpha and setting a torpedo en route to Earth with the assurance he'll come back and clean up whatever's left after the attack.
