** Arnie Grunwald from "Revenge is the nuts" also counts. The cruel owner of a home for the blind, he murdered his blind mother by putting out marbles which she tripped on and took over the shelter, which she left to the state. He spends all of the shelters money on himself and treats the residents like dirt. He intentionally injures them, turns off the heat, cuts their food ratios, and makes them live in the dark. He says because they're blind doesn't mean they need light. After his attempt to Blackmail a new young female resident into sleeping with him so that he will heat the house and give the residents regular food ratios fails, he makes the residents have only one meal a day. He soon gets what he deserves though.

** After the Crypt Keeper shows us [[spoiler: how he was conceived]], you expect him to crack a joke at the end. He does...while sobbing his eyes out. He's legitimately upset he never got to see his [[spoiler: parents]] and he admits the tale makes him utterly depressed. The final shot is him letting out a cackle that dissolves into a tragic laugh.

He's legitimately upset he never got to see his [[spoiler: parents]] and he admits the tale makes him utterly depressed. He even kept the doll that [[spoiler:his father received from a little girl at the circus, and apparently passed on to him.]] The final shot is him letting out a cackle that dissolves into a tragic laugh.

* CreepyAwesome: The Crypt Keeper, oh so very, very much. His AffablyEvil nature and twisted sense of humor certainly help.

* CompleteMonster:
** While ''Tales from the Crypt'' tended to play a lot of its [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror horror]] for {{camp}} or BlackComedy, [[TheBluebeard Howard Prince]], from season 4's "[[Recap/TalesFromTheCryptS4E1NoneButTheLonelyHeart None But The Lonely Heart]]", is an exception. Prince is a charismatic young man who courts older, richer women and gains their affection. However, once they've tied the knot, Prince poisons them and cruelly leaves them to die as he reaps their riches, all while playing the part of the grieving husband before he starts the process over again. His FauxAffablyEvil persona makes it all the more cruel. And he's willing to kill anyone else who might pose a threat to his operations, as even his own partners in the scheme aren't safe when Prince becomes paranoid over someone discovering the truth of his actions.
