* Yes, even ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' has one in the expansion ''[[VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell Gat Out Of Hell]]''. [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OvAJIVSLqK4 Apparently Satan, Jezebel, Gat, and Kenzie each play a part in a five minute long villain song.]]

* More to the point than the example below, Dr. Eggman gets a great one in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWiSEyU76M4 E.G.G.M.A.N.]]: Definitely a great little number.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', the new villain Infinite has his own, intimidating [[https://youtu.be/XKjOJuPjiu4 song]], with the lyrics largely gloating about how powerful he is, and how he will destroy anyone who stands in his way.

* In ''VideoGame/CryptOfTheNecromancer[=: Amplified]]'', Fortissimole gets a BoastfulRap, ''Notorious D.I.G.'', for his boss music, in which he mocks the player for thinking they can possibly defeat him. When Fortissimole is finally defeated, the background music continues, but his rap is [[KilledMidSentence cut short]].

*** From "Sonic Heroes", the theme song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuVAaU63K7k "What I'm Made Of"]] famously depicts his motives.

Interestingly, depending on the interpretation it can also be seen as [[TheVillainSucksSong Sonic boasting to Metal to try and copy his power and see what happens]].

*** [[AnIcePerson Shiva]] takes it even further with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHkMfJBDFZM Oblivion]]. Instead of being sung from Shiva's perspective, though, it's sung by [[spoiler:her WillingChanneler, Lady Iceheart; and explains not only how she went past the DespairEventHorizon to enter full-on DarkMessiah mode, but that she's still the one in control despite having become a [[PhysicalGod Primal]].]]

** And then there's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbWfGIjZG50 "You Wouldn't Know"]], from ''VideoGame/LegoDimensions''. This one actually subverts the trope since it's not even that villainous - it's just [=GLaDOS=] taunting Chell about the things she'll miss since she [[spoiler:left Aperture again.]] (And how [=GLaDOS=] is [[BlatantLies totally fine with that, honestly).]]

* When a song from the ShinMegamiTensei series is used, it's usually in the Persona series and about how awesome the heroes are or cheering them on to their goal, maybe something a bit deeper. ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' seems to be an exception. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qO6LWQhvzRw The Fierce Battle]] theme seems to be the angels singing to you in hatred for how you've abused your power to go against them while the main [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmqbhyS-BK8 Boss Battle]] theme is the demons singing about why God despises them, with a bit of the desperate remains of humanity (and possibly a few demons) begging for salvation. Each of these sides can be villains to you in the end.

* ''VideoGame/AnarchyReigns'' has a few of these around. Baron's new track doesn't fit since he's fighting with the good guys here, but there are two better examples. First there's Max's theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agl9jaKrBVQ Unlimited Resources]], which is basically Max singing to you about how he is just going to [[CurbStompBattle wreck your shit]]. The other song is the final boss track against [[spoiler:Nikolai]] called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYoTV1fkrD4 Find You.]] The song takes place from the villain's perspective completely and how [[spoiler:his]] view of the world has become dark and hopeless, telling Jack and Leo that their only option is to find the truth before the truth find them.

*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCcbKY7d0dc Good King Moogle Mog XII]], the theme of the eponymous tiny yet terrible tyrant and his [[FlunkyBoss "trusty crew"]]. Highly reminiscent of ''This is Halloween'' from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas''.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfgUfqeSxg8 "Look Pimpin'"]] from ''MadWorld'' is a hip-hop VillainSong by Sick YG, sung from the perspective of the FinalBoss, [[spoiler:the Black Baron]], during the game's climactic battle. Once half the boss's health is gone, the music switches to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6id1B1Lyq8 "So Cold"]] by Ox, which is still a villain song; however, while "Look Pimpin'" mocks Jack for thinking he can defeat [[spoiler:the Black Baron]], "So Cold" is him enraged by how he's gotten beaten up.
