* CompleteMonster: [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Atrocitus]], the BigBad of the first arc, is the leader of the Red Lantern Corps and [[AdaptationalVillainy lacks any of his comic book self's]] [[AntiHero more]] [[NeverHurtAnInnocent redeeming]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist qualities]]. While [[FreudianExcuse he lost his homeworld to the Manhunters]], his obsession with destroying the Guardians of the Universe [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist destroyed any noble intentions he may have had]]. Starting the Red Lantern Corps, Atrocitus [[{{Hyporcite}} caused many worlds to be caught in war]], resulting in millions of lives needlessly lost, in order to find new recruits. Seeing Razer's potential being blocked by the love for his wife, Illana, Atrocitus murders her, a fact he eventually reveals this with sadistic glee. Under his orders, the Red Lanterns lure several Frontier Lanterns into traps where they are murdered. When Hal Jordan and Kilowog escape with Frontier Lantern Shyir Rev to his homeworld, Atrocitus proclaims to the inhabitants they are "under the Red Lanterns' protection", which involves handing the Green Lanterns over or he will set off a bomb that will [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy the planet]]. When they fight back, he allows the detonation to occur, though the people are saved, Shyir Rev sacrifices himself. Attempting to reach Oa to kill the Guardians, he hires Drusa to take control of Aya and board the Intercerptor, he critically injures Salaak and brutalizes Hal before being overpowered and defeated. He makes his return in "Love Is a Battlefield", where he's given a chance at freedom if he can defeat and kill Carol Ferris, [[RevengeByProxy agreeing]] when he learns she's the woman Hal loves. Hal intervenes, though Atrocitus indirectly murders the Star Sapphire Ghia'ta, promising Hal that Carol will be next. Referred to by Aya as the "champion of hate", Atrocitus demonstrates how [[HeWhoFightsMonsters rage and obsession makes one worse than those they fight]].

* CompleteMonster: [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Atrocitus]], the BigBad of the first half of the series, is dedicated to the destruction of the Green Lantern Corps, having many of them murdered by his Red Lantern followers. First showing his ruthlessness in ordering a colony world full of innocent civilians destroyed, Atrocitus later revealed he had destroyed worlds to fill survivors with rage and recruit them as Red Lanterns. Unlike his comics counterpart, a TragicVillain at worst and an AntiHero at best, Atrocitus in the show delighted over the pain he caused innocents and took sadistic pleasure in his actions. Even though he himself had once lost a homeworld, he gloated over inflicting the same agony on others like Razer.

* MagnificentBastard: Atrocitus; it says something this guy was cunning enough to OutGambit Hal, who in this continuity is a very GenreSavvy and competent GuileHero himself.

** Razer, after [[spoiler:His breakup with Aya. Did he do it because he believed that their relationship was causing her to [[HeroicSacrifice be more reckless than necessary]], and [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies he simply did it to protect her and spare himself future heartbreak]]? Or was he genuinely [[ReplacementGoldfish just infatuated with her because she stole his dead wife's appearance]], and there was never a truly deep connection between them after all?]]
