* [[Literature/XWingSeries Baron Soontir Fel]] of the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' is a borderline case. He serves the Empire, and from his last name you'd expect him to fall from grace--indeed, it's not clear for a while [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor where his loyalties lie]]. He [[DefectorFromDecadence defects from the Empire]], partly out of disgust about what Ysanne Isard and s have turned the Empire into, and joins the Rogues, but there are various hints that he may or may not turn again. After the comics [[NoEnding didn't end]], he vanished, captured by Isard... and, as it turns out in the HandOfThrawn duology, captured because Grand Admiral Thrawn wanted him (though it wasn't revealed exactly what Thrawn gave Isard in return, since she ''really'' wanted to kill Fel for his defection). Thrawn showed him ''something'', implied but never stated to be the [[Literature/NewJediOrder oncoming Vong invasion]], and Fel joined Thrawn's Empire, which wasn't part of Palpatine's Empire at all. Ultimately Fel is one of the good guys, just not the kind to wear New Republic colors.

* Doctor Victor von {{Frankenstein}}. However, in the [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} original novel]] it is plain Victor Frankenstein, as he made the monster while a student and never got his doctorate.

* Judge Holden (more commonly referred to as "the judge") of CormacMcCarthy's ''Literature/BloodMeridian''. The man easily ranks as one of the most violent and fundamentally evil murderers in the history of fiction. A giant, albino and utterly hairless murderer, the judge [[spoiler:incites a mob to hang an innocent preacher under false pretenses, is a pedophile and rapes and murders many children, leashes and subjugates a mentally disabled man as though he were a dog and scalps countless Native Americans. Not only is he utterly without morals, the judge is also an incredibly intelligent, OmnidisciplinaryScientist and strong enough to wield a mounted howitzer as most men would a shotgun. In the novel's final pages it is implied that the judge is less a man and more an immortal force of nature and warfare--a god of violence and depravity, if you will.]]
