* CompleteMonster: Tretiak created a heating oil shortage by hiding it in a massive tank beneath his mansion in order to convince the populace that the current government was a failure. Doing so killed quite a number of people. He did it all for power and to raid the treasury.

* BizarroEpisode: "The Man Who Liked Ants" which features The Saint stopping world domination by ants. Seriously. A MadScientist breeds ants to grow in size and intelligence, believing them to be a 'purer' and more admirable life form cheated out of its glory by the evolution of fallible and in-fighting prone humanity. Templar [[KillItWithFire kills the ant queen and her nest before it can hatch.]] It's also a weird episode, because it's one of the few times you actually see Templar afraid and briefly has the heebie-jeebies about insects for a little while following it.
