* Ramses Overdark, Madaran imperial assassin from ''MagicTheGathering''. Actually, legends is full of these types of names. Dakkon Blackblade, Rasputin Dreamweaver, Boris Devilboon, Tuknir Deathlock, Nebuchadnezzar, and that's just the humans. The Elder Dragons have names like Palladia-Mors and Vaevictis Asmadi, though the most powerful one is named...Nicol. Which doesn't sound ''that'' baleful...until you realize that "Nicol" comes from "nickel", the German for ''"devil"''. Oh, and the Bolas likely comes from [[ArsGoetia Glasya la Bolas]].

* Dr. Diabolik of the WhateleyUniverse. You've got the K-word, the evil adjective, the evil title... For extra credit, his daughter is named Jadis (like the White Witch in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'') and his son is named Malachai, Mal for short. Their codenames are She-Beast and Techno-Devil. You do the math.

* Also in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', Oleander. A poisonous plant. I don't trust this guy.
* [[YggdraUnion Gulcasa, Emperor of Carnage]]. That he goes around riding a dragon and twirling a SinisterScythe is bad enough, but he's an Emperor in a Japanese RPG (which is almost always bad), and Carnage, well, speaks for itself. Add to this that he's also referred to as Blazing Emperor, that his personal skill is named [[KillEmAll Genocide]], and that he is a direct descendant of the evil dragon [[SealedEvilInACan Brongaa]]... yeah. People actually run away as soon as they hear his name in-universe.\\

Ironically enough, [[spoiler:Gulcasa is actually so sweet and good-natured it's downright pitiful. He doesn't get SympatheticPOV until ''very'' late into ''YggdraUnion'', though, so unless you've played ''YggdraUnison'' and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', you wouldn't be able to tell]]. You still don't want to make him angry, though.
