** Scott Dunn from the season 2 two-parter "Tick, Tick, Tick…"/"Boom!" was a SerialKiller who, prior to the events of the episodes, killed prostitutes, framed another man, hanged him and made his death look like a suicide. Later on, he kills a businessman just to live off his identity. When he becomes [[StalkerWithACrush obsessed with Kate Beckett through Nikki Heat]], he learns about a man named Ben Conrad and then proceeds to hold him hostage in his own apartment. Pretending to be Conrad, Dunn murders three people seemingly at random, each one connected to Conrad's dead dog, and each time calls Beckett to taunt her. He takes the body of the third victim and leaves her at Beckett’s apartment as another threat to her. When shooting the third victim, Dunn didn’t kill her right away, letting her bleed out. Dunn then kills Conrad and stages him as shooting himself to [[FrameUp frame him as the killer]]. Dunn later sneaks into Beckett's apartment, leaves a bomb and then sets it off while she's there. Enraged when Beckett just manages to survive survives, Dunn calls her to vent and while he does, kills a random woman out of anger. Dunn's revealed to have privately written about his killings to immortalize and take pride in them. When his identity is uncovered, Dunn takes FBI agent Jordan Shaw hostage, threatening to kill her unless Beckett gives herself up to him. He leads the FBI team astray to the wrong building where he plans to blow them up with another bomb. When Beckett tricks him into thinking they saw through his ruse and he failed, he angrily lashes out by attacking and nearly succeeding in shooting her.
** [[PsychoPsychologist Dr. Van Holtzman]] from the season 7 finale "Hollander's Woods" is a [[MalevolentMaskedMen masked]] SerialKiller who has been active for over thirty years. With at least nine victims to his name, Holtzman abducts young woman whom he believes won't be missed, carves crosses into their faces, then [[SlashedThroat cuts their throats]]. When an eleven-year-old [[TheHero Richard Castle]] comes across Holtzman disposing the body of one of his victims, Holtzman [[WouldHurtAChild threatened to kill him]] if he told anyone what he saw, only sparing him to [[PragmaticVillainy avoid drawing attention to his other crimes]]. Years later, when the adult Castle and Detective Kate Beckett investigate another of Holtzman's murders, Holtzman attempts to {{frame|Up}} one of his mentally ill patients for the killings. While searching the barnhouse where Holtzman murdered his victims, Castle discovers a scrapbook [[CreepySouvenir filled with pictures of Holtzman's victims]]. When Holtzman arrives, he expresses regret for not having killed Castle as a child, then promises to kill both Castle and Beckett before attacking Castle and trying to slowly cut his throat. Taking {{pride}} in his crimes and considering his mask to be his real face, Holtzman is a vicious killer who left an impact on Castle for his entire life, and who [[KnightOfCerebus stands out]] in a normally lighthearted series.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Maya Stojan was a supporting actress on ''Castle'' for quite some time (she has played Tori, the tech specialist, from midway through season 5 to the end of season 7), but it's likely most people haven't taken notice to her until after seeing her as Agent 33 on ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''.

** "Love Me Dead" gave us Norman Jessup, the ex-con who wanted to be a locksmith, and considered himself a wordsmith. Castle even takes a liking to him, refusing to press charges for Jessup hitting him earlier in the episode (to be fair, Jessup apologized almost immediately, as Castle wasn't his target) because "He's a wordsmith."

** [=LokSat=], real name [[spoiler:Mason Wood]], is the BigBad of the eighth and final season, as well as the GreaterScopeVillain of the whole series. The head of the Greatest Detective Society and a corrupt government attorney, it is revealed in the two-part season premiere "[[{{Recap/CastleS8E1XY}} XY]]"/"[[{{Recap/CastleS8E2XX}} XX]]" that he was Senator William Bracken's silent partner, providing him with the highly-trained assassins he used, taking part in covering up their crimes. When Beckett's former team from the Attorney General's office begins looking into finding him, he has four of them killed in a car accident and the fifth one stabbed in a nightclub, later on sending assassins after both Beckett and AG analyst Vikram Singh. When [[YouHaveFailedMe Bracken is questioned]] by Beckett and later by Castle, [=LokSat=] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness has him brutally murdered in prison]]. He also [[FrameUp frames]] AG Allison Hyde as a patsy, has her killed, and makes it look like a suicide to close the investigation. He assists Bracken and Vulcan Simmons in their drug operation, keeping it going even after they're dead. When Beckett is seemingly able to persuade Public Defender Caleb Brown--whom [=LokSat=] forced to work for him--to turn on [=LokSat=] in the series finale "[[{{Recap/CastleS8E22Crossfire}} Crossfire]]", [=LokSat=] has [[TheDragon Mr. Flynn]] gas and brutally burn an unknown man alive in order to fake Caleb's death, only [[PragmaticVillainy sparing him because he's still useful]]. He manipulates and plans to kill Castle's stepmother Rita for information. When he has Flynn abduct Castle and subject him to an extremely potent truth serum, he personally asks one-by-one who else knows about the investigatio, coldly stating his intention to have them all eliminated. He later attempts to ambush Beckett and tries to throw her into an incinerator. Representing the darkest elements of the series, [=LokSat=] is notable as the most dangerous threat the characters have ever faced.
