** The rest of the Suburban Redevelopment Fund aren't much better; they're led by Leland Monroe, a man who is picked up on as being ''explicitly'' out for his own interests by his colleagues as they gather up real estate by burning down the homes of innocent people, all in the name of making an easy buck when the government ''has'' to buy them out to develop a freeway, ''after'' the SRF has claimed insurance on their own crappy housing - and he has the nerve to call Fontaine a 'cold customer'. Not far behind him is Curtis Benson, arranging the insurance setup for the SRF in exchange for stock and uncaring of the lives at stake, and utterly unrepentant paedophile.

** [[PsychoPsychologist Dr. Harlan Fontaine]] is one of [[BigBadDuumvirate the masterminds]], alongside real estate tycoon [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Leland Monroe]], behind the plans of the Suburban Redevelopment Fund, a scheme to con money off of the city in an elaborate insurance scam. To put the plans into action, he [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates]] [[ShellShockedVeteran Ira Hogeboom]], a traumatized patient, into burning down the houses of people who wouldn't sell the land, and his only objection to families being killed was that it drew bad publicity. When Hogeboom becomes hard to control, he decides to have a hit put out on him. He is willing to personally kill anyone who discovers his dirty secrets, even the ones who trust him, such as Courtney Sheldon, who he mentored and had sell morphine as a drug dealer; and attempts to kill [[TheHero Cole Phelps]]'s love interest, Elsa Litchmann, as she was about to piece it together. Never breaking [[FauxAffablyEvil his friendly demeanor]], Fontaine is a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who [[EvenEvilHasStandards even Monroe]] calls a cold character.
** Garrett Mason is a {{serial killer}} who targets women. His MO is working as a bartender to find women he then beats or strangles to death, then leaving their bodies naked in public places with messages carved into their skin. He is behind all the murders in the homicide cases, all while [[{{Frameup}} framing innocent men and other likely suspects for his deeds]] and sending messages and his victims’ possessions to the police to taunt them that they hadn't stopped him. In the final case, he lets Cole Phelps and his homicide partner, Rusty Galloway, find him using clues in dangerous traps. When Cole and Rusty confront him, he isn't afraid of arrest so much as he is astonished that the police were smart enough to find him, and continues to taunt them. When searching for him they find he has body parts and bloody utensils and weapons scattered in his house. Finally, it is also discovered that he was the Black Dahlia killer.

** Some of Donnelly's later dialog also indicates that he's trying to get convictions for the murders to prevent mass panic erupting from the public revelation of an active serial killer.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The [[spoiler:6th Marines and Courtney in particular can end up as this thanks to the epilogue; they badmouth Cole for being sent home and ending up a successful, commended detective and elect to carry out the morphine robbery to make something of themselves; this is a decision made after ''Courtney'' shot Cole in the back, meaning the medic only has himself to blame. Their decision also ''causes'' most of the problems that befall them during Vice]].
