* A small-time thug working as muscle for a loan shark is an amateur boxer in his spare time. Unknowingly recruited as a tomato-can opponent for a much better fighter, he makes good on his chance and eventually earns the title, but lets himself fall out of condition with soft living. The resulting stress claims the life of his beloved trainer--one of the few people with any measure of integrity in his life. He manages to make a comeback, but for some reason never arranges for an independent audit of his own finances (despite having a wife and a brother-in-law with far more business skill than he's ever had a chance to gain) and loses everything. In an attempt to stage a second comeback, he alienates his son and puts his own health at risk. [[spoiler:''Film/{{Rocky}}'']]

* Heir to a lush island, this greedy aristocrat immediately gathered a vigilante group when a passing space sorcerer had expressed interest in the island's favorite sport, to forcefully claim the island as his now that his parents were incapacitated. He shamelessly befouled and looted the island's diverse locations and beat the island's guardians senseless, stealing their pieces of a sacred relic. He deluded his friends into thinking that their destructive habits are for the island's well being. In their first encounter, he terrorized and pounded the hapless sorcerer into the dust, forcing him to flee the island. After nearly murdering his own friends for posession of another sacred relic, he relentlessly pursued the sorcerer to his home planet. There, he ruined the planet like he had his home, and pummeled the sorcerer again, trapping him on the planet's moon. [[spoiler: Timber the Tiger, [[DiddyKongRacing Diddy Kong Racing]]]]

* Get a load of the deranged psychopath who performs open-heart surgery on his best friend without anasthesia or a properly prepared clean room, and ''with his goddamn '''bare hands''''' which turns into an impromptu heart transplant thanks to his aforementioned improper medical practices. During this absolute travesty of a surgical operation, he tells the anecdote involving how a previous patient lost his skeleton thanks to him and he lost his medical license for it. He keeps zombie heads in his fridge, ignoring their pleas to be put to rest, while showing nothing but the worst bedside manner of any medical professional this troper has ever seen. All of this is for the benefit of testing a medical implant that barely functions! When he's not performing Frankensteinian deeds on his teammates, he's pumping them full of chemicals while they're fighting, that only heal their injuries as a side effect of their intended purpose - whatever the hell ''that'' is. Ladies and gentlemen, meet [[spoiler:The Medic, from Team Fortress 2.]]
* There once was a Texan, whom you could always tell, but you couldn't tell him very much. His response to seeing a cybernetic arm advertised as the ultimate weapon? He ''sawed off his own arm just to use the weapon''. Not only does he show glee at his Sentry Guns obliterating everyone they see, but he displays nothing but contempt for the Frenchman assigned to stop his murderous killing spree. His outward display of a smooth SouthernFriedGenius might be genuine, but it hides an inner contempt for his fellow man. Oh, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking he stole a song called "Someone Else's Song"]]. [[spoiler:Dell "The Engineer" Conagher, Team Fortress 2.]]

* He eats all the lasagna and sleeps all day like the useless overweight (or, shall he say, "undertall") that he is, all the while constantly driving his owner closer and closer to insanity with his boisterous, argumentative attitude. Some say he might not even exist at all... [[spoiler:the eponymous ''Garfield''.]]
* He broke out of prison to murder a bunch of people, just because his imaginary Russian friend told him to. [[spoiler:Alex Mason, ''Call of Duty: Black Ops'']]
* Supposedly an ally of the United States, this person instead chose to murder one of its highest ranking generals after [[NukeEm launching a nuclear warhead at Washington, D.C.]]. Later leads a terrorist attack against an Arabian hotel, murders its owner/operator. [[spoiler:Captain John Price, ''Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'']]

* This young man first discovered his [[PlayingWithFire fire powers]] at the age of eight, when he brutally burned a nervous young man alive. He spent the next years of his life spurning his loving older brother. In his high school years, to gain power, he left his friend to be beaten up by delinquents, left his LoveInterest in the company of a known pedophile, and forced a woman with a crippling fear of fire to risk her life inside a burning building. If this wasn't enough, he selfishly destroyed the fabric of reality even though his wishes came true. Later kicked his brother out of a moving blimp. [[spoiler: Tatsuya Suou, ''Persona2'']]

* RealLife example: He took power in a disputed election which led to half the country seceding in protest. A dedicated racist, he quickly exploited the crisis to acquire more and more power for himself, infamously abolishing the right of habeas corpus. His troops committed numerous atrocities; in particular, one general slaughtered thousands of civilians and destroyed countless cities and towns solely to MakeAnExampleOutOfThem. He was killed at the end of the war, but the rebellion was crushed anyway. Efforts on the behalf of sympathetic government officials to show leniency toward the former rebellious areas were swept aside, and he was succeeded by a notorious drunk GeneralRipper who ran one of the most corrupt governments in history. [[spoiler: Abraham Lincoln]]
