* CompleteMonster: [[AmoralAttorney Phillip Stroh]] is the most personal, depraved, and recurring foe the Major Crimes division ever faced. When first encountering the team, Stroh is using his position as a defense attorney to draw attention away from the fact that he is a SerialRapist who has raped over 6 women, having killed his latest target. After ditching his client to take the fall, Stroh returns after being ousted as a SerialKiller who has raped and murdered five women by strangling them to death with a chain, and though trying to stab the teenaged Rusty and his ArchEnemy Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson to death, Stroh is captured. Though locked in prison, Stroh's evil continues as he uses two men he assisted in becoming serial killers to kill specific targets for him, including his own minions, and attempt to broker a deal for a better life in prison for himself. Escaping confinement by murdering several innocent people, Stroh goes on a bloody rampage while tracking down his mother to acquire her fortune, butchering numerous people from his childhood including his step-parents and first girlfriend. Stroh is revealed to have been truly wicked since birth, as he tortured his step-sister, tried to burn his family alive, and aped and murdered three young girls while [[TeensAreMonsters only a teenager]]. In the end, Stroh leaves a teenaged girl to slowly be strangled to death so he may escape, and uses his final moments to plead for mercy, only to try to strike down his enemies in return for their mercy.

** Judd Whaley from season 3's "The Round File" was a manager of the Summerview Senior Living Center. He had a Medicaid occupant die on him, and received a bonus for having a low occupancy rate as well as for having a paying resident replace him. [[{{greed}} Realizing the profit potential]], Whaley would poison Medicaid Residents with no friends and visitors, and [[FrameUp tries to frame a resident]] who gets suspicious. He expressed nothing but contempt for his victims with his "Who cares" speech, and even has the gall to try to bribe the police to drop the charges and let the witness investigating him stay at Summerview free of charge.
