* Kronos from Greek mythology (also spelled Cronus): in addition to being the god of time, (hence "chronology," for example) he's most famous for castrating his own father Oranos and usurping his role as King of the Titans, proceeding to eat his own children as soon as they were born to try and prevent a prophecy telling of his own defeat, and leading the Titans and their allies against Zeus and the other Olympians in the Titanomachy. Fiction usually has him as the BiggerBad as far as Ancient Greece is concerned (''AgeOfMythology'', ''PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', etc.) by conspiring with mortals and even other gods to escape from Tartarus. Also the namesake for the short-necked plesiosaur ''Kronosaurus'', itself something you'd probably want to run (or rather swim) away from.

* Charles Foster [[CitizenKane Kane]]: With the manipulation of the public via newspaper yellow journalism, the politically ambitious marriage to his first wife, the forcing of his second wife into an undesired and ill-suited operatic career, or even the abandoning of his first wife for said second wife, he's really the antagonistic villain of his own movie.

* Combined with [[NamesToRunAwayFrom/{{Verbs}} Verbs]], Zedediah Killgrave, The Purple Man. His live-action version in ''Series/{{Jessica Jones|2015}}'' is actually [[SpecialPersonNormalName Kevin]] [[EvilMakeover "Kilgrave"]] [[SpecialPersonNormalName Thompson]].

His live-action version in ''Series/{{Jessica Jones|2015}}'' is actually [[SpecialPersonNormalName Kevin]] [[EvilMakeover "Kilgrave"]] [[SpecialPersonNormalName Thompson]]. The fact that Kilgrave still sounds cartoonishly evil is often lampshaded.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/{{K}}'' has a few of these. Kuroh, Kusanagi, Daikaku Kokujouji, all badasses. There's also Adolf K. Weismann [[spoiler: who ends up being a subversion]]. Yukari, Munakata, and Mikoto also have prominent Ks. All of the episode titles also start with K, except for the episode called "Adolf K. Weismann". The show itself also qualifies.
