* CompleteMonster:
** [[BigBad Markos]] from season five is the leader of the Travelers, a subculture of witches restrained from using magic. Markos planned on undoing that spell along with every spell ever cast by a witch, [[FantasticRacism viewing their magic as an abomination and his own as pure]]. Centuries ago, he enacted a curse so that certain generations of the descendants of [[MonsterProgenitor Silas and Amara]] would be their exact {{doppelganger}}s, brainwashed into being drawn together, so he could use their blood for the Travelers' ritual; even before he is resurrected, he orders the death of Stefan's completely innocent doppelganger, Tom Avery, just so Stefan and Elena will be the only ones left. He allows his [[UndyingLoyalty most loyal minion]], [[TheDragon Sloane]] to dies just to demonstrate the result of his curse; begins the destruction of the Other Side, an afterlife for supernatural creatures, causing its denizens to start hurtling into the void, and comes at the price of [[WeHaveReserves the sacrifice of his own minions]]; later abducts and tortures Stefan and Elena for more of their blood; leads the Travelers in a mass ritual to [[GrandTheftMe possess the population of Mystic Falls]], destroying their original bodies to make the change permanent; tries to unleash an anti-magic field [[OmnicidalManiac that would have killed every vampire on the planet]]. In the season finale, Markos has Tyler/Julian killed, after learning that [[YouHaveFailedMe Julian killed Stefan when Stefan was still useful to them]]. When Markos suspects a plot to kill him, he keeps Caroline's mother Sheriff Forbes [[TakingYouWithMe close to him, and pins her down in his dying moments]]. After his death, he attempts to resurrect himself by forcibly passing through Bonnie, which again would have risked ''her'' death. While most villains on this show have honorable or sympathetic qualities, Markos has none, [[TheUnfettered only caring about his his goal and going to any lengths and depths to achieve it]].
** Season 6ís BigBad is [[CardCarryingVillain Malachai "Kai" Parker]], a young and bloodthirsty [[EvilSorcerer witch]] with constant murder on the brain. In his past, Kai was denied the chance to preform the merge ritual with his twin sister Jo and lead the Gemini Coven, and retaliates by gleefully [[CainAndAbel killing his other siblings]], making his [[WouldHurtAChild youngest siblings Luke and Liv]] his primary targets. Spending years in a prison world, Damon and Bonnie soon arrive, and Kai torments them until he escapes that world, leaving Bonnie behind. Intending to hunt Luke and Liv down, Kai promises to continue his murder spree on innocent people. Siphoning leftover magic from the Travelers, Kai experiments by [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing Elena]], as the humans he tortures eventually dies. He eventually comes up on top of the merge, but kills Luke in the process. Kai later teams up with vampire/witch hybrids, and helps them escape their own prison before attacking Jo and Alaric's wedding, killing Jo and her unborn babies. Kai kills himself to complete his transformation into a Heretic, and so that the Gemini Coven will die with him. His final act of cruelty is linking Bonnie to a comatose Elena, so that Elena can only awaken with Bonnie's death. While he goes through a phase of empathy and regret, it was only the result of Luke's soul merging with Kai's, and Kai gets over it. Incapable of feeling real emotions, Kai's [[FauxAffablyEvil charm]] only thinly veils this deranged warlock, who does what he does because he "likes being a [[TheSociopath sociopath]]."
** Julian from season 7 stands out as an especially evil vampire in this series, constantly spending his time murdering and manipulating. Julian is Lily Salvatore's lover and father figure to the Heretics, whom he sees as personal pawns. In his first episode Julian discovers that Valerie is pregnant with Stefan's baby and [[WouldHitAGirl beats her into a miscarriage]], silently taunting her as she recovers. When resurrected, he compels multiple people from other towns into filling up the school and restaurants as a constant and living blood bank. To protect himself, Julian links his life to Lily's. When Lily sees through him, Julian tries to force Lily to either kill Damon or Valerie, taunting that he unlinked their lives when Lily stakes herself. Julian later uses a mystical dagger to entrap Stefan and Damon in their personal hells. Julian also kills off mall employees at a neighboring town. When Stefan and Damon return, it's discovered that Julian has built an chaotic vampire army that has completely taken over Mystic Falls, which Julian uses to feed off and torment the human population. Julian also holds a gladiatorial fight club where [[GladiatorGames contestants fight to the death for his amusement]], in which he has a suicidal Damon take part in, before fighting Damon himself. It's also revealed he's behind the vampire hunter Raina, having [[StartOfDarkness forced the girl to kill her father]]. Julian doesn't even have the humanity switch to excuse him, being outright stated to have been born evil.

** The new contender for the crown has to be Aaron in season five. In the space of nine episodes, he has seen two of his best friends murdered, found out that his only other friend is a vampire and a killer, his only remaining guardian is a sadist who has been lying to him for years and he has had almost every member of his entire family, including his parents and aunt, murdered by Damon for things They didn't even know about. It's no wonder the poor guy seems to have a perpetual rain cloud hanging over his head. And now [[spoiler: he's dead]].

** Bonnie lost her grandmother, her father, found and "lost" her mother; almost every crush/boyfriend she's had has died; every time she's had a moral/personal objection, her friends pressure her into helping them anyway; her friends can go episodes hardly interacting with her until they need to use her for her magic; she was made the anchor to the other side and endured god knows how much pain every time a supernatural being died; her longest relationship basically cheated on her with a ghost; she was imprisoned in an eternally repeating day with one of her least favorite people then left there with murderous psychopath until she was eventually left ENTIRELY ALONE and almost committed suicide; after thinking she could trust Damon he brought her torturer to her after she specifically said she never wanted to see him again; she endured her PTSD after the prison world alone, just like she handled being dead & her anchor-pain almost all alone; she sacrificed herself numerous times for Elena's sake (so she could have her brother, boyfriend, whatever made Elena happy at the time) while Elena was so distracted by the Salvatore brothers she hardly appreciated it; Jeremy was the basicially only person who really cared about rescuing Bonnie from the prison world and her supposed bestie Elena went out of her way to have him graduate from high school early for no reason and get into art school so he could "move on" when they were closer than they'd ever been to getting Bonnie back... This girl needs a drink.

*** Although, to be honest, Caroline is far more judgmental and meddles far more often, especially in later seasons. Bonnie was just one of the few characters who had a healthy perspective on both human and supernatural life early on.
