* 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.

In it, an AxCrazy singer exults in his own psychopathy, while in-universe, Mr. Scratch is shown happily dancing to it as SourceMusic after murdering the people who were partying and playing the song too loudly in the room next to his. It also plays during the big confrontation with his {{Elite Mook}}s at the end of the game.

* The educational computer game ''IMMeen'' opens with a catchy Villain Song from the titular villain about his plan to trap studious little bookworms in a magic labyrinth using a magic book. It almost makes up for the fact that it and all other cutscenes were animated by the same people who animated the dreaded ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames''.

*** Then again, [[spoiler:[=GLaDOS=] was no longer even the villain during the last portion of the game anyway and even helps you out to an extent. It's more of an Anti-Villain Song at that point.]]
** 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).]]
