** [[SmugSnake Augustus Giovanni]], the Giovanni [[ThePatriarch Antediluvian]], is the most selfish and monstrous of his clan and family. A mortal merchant sired by the Antediluvian Cappadocius, Augustus masterminded the Conspiracy of Isaac to create enough chaos to murder and [[CannibalismSuperpower Diablerize]] his own sire before exterminating the entire Cappadocian clan. Using his own family to become new members of the Giovanni clan, Augustus left the mortal bloodline intact, [[BigScrewedUpFamily crafting his family]] into [[VillainousIncest incestuous]], cannibalistic {{necromancer}}s who regularly enslave the dead and scheme and [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder backstab]] for his favor and the honor of being Embraced (turned into a vampire). [[AGodAmI Desiring to supplant God himself]], Augustus enslaves countless wraiths to eventually destroy the Shroud and cause the world to be utterly overrun by the dead so he can enslave them and launch himself to ever more power.

* CompleteMonster: [[GenderBender Sascha Vykos]], born Myca Vykos, is a monster whose legacy dates back to 11th Century Constantinople. Sired by the Tzimisce Symeon, Vykos eventually destroyed his sire by repeatedly consuming and regurgitating him before a final act of draining him to death. Removing his gender and taking the name "Sascha," Vykos became a major figure in the monstrous Sabbat, feared even by its monstrous Clan. Vykos [[TortureTechnician invents new tortures]], having perfected them upon countless unwilling victims whose agony it can prolong for years to centuries, alternating it with incredible pleasure to make the victim unsure if they're experiencing torture or rape. In modern times, Vykos plays a major role in the war for the United States East Coast, using its fellow Sabbat as CannonFodder or torture victims when it's bored. One luckless failed assassin is reshaped as its servant, tortured and broken so it may experiment with how loyal it has made him. With a thousand year reign of horror, an insatiable hunger for knowledge and an unspeakable appetite for torture, Vykos is the one who shows the rest of the Sabbat what it truly means to be a monster.

** The prose introduction for the Baali clanbook features a supposedly respected abbot having sex with a [[{{Lolicon}} preteen boy]]. After a few minutes, misshapen maggots begin crawling from ''inside the boy'' straight up ''the man's urethra'' as the boy, a Baali vampire posing as a mortal, clenches down with his knees to prevent the man from escaping, breaking several ribs in the process as the maggots begin burrowing, feeding, and laying eggs in his abdomen. This is only ''part'' of how the Baali [[WithFriendsLikeThese choose their new initiates]]. At this point, you can stop reading now and count yourself lucky.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: There was a Second Edition sourcebook called ''Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand'' which proved very unpopular because it suggested that the Sabbat (Already a secret vampire conspiracy to control humanity) was ''itself'' controlled by a secret conspiracy within the Sabbat's "Black Hand" faction, which was ''itself'' called the Black Hand. This "True Black Hand" controlled everything from the land of the dead, residing in the [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost of the First City mankind founded]]. There are more details, but things only get ''more'' needlessly complicated and stupid from there. When the next edition of Vampire:The Masquerade came out, they scaled back both new clans introduced in that book to about a dozen members each, declared that the scope of the "True Black Hand"'s power and agenda were extremely exaggerated, and then ''dropped [[OurGhostsAreDifferent a ghost atomic bomb]] on the underworld city they were operating out of'' for good measure.
** Virtually everything in the first edition and early second edition concerning the UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} was deeply racist. Later on, the collaboration between the Romani and the Gangrel would be [[RetCon retconned]]; the founder of Romani-stereotype Clan Ravnos was blasted to flinders ''from orbit'' and the rest of the clan wiped out in the space of a week. Problem solved?

** The True Black Hand got brought back in V20, scaling back their ability to influence events, retconning certain of their more egregious aspects so they were more appropriate to the setting and/or optional, and showing that the truth of many of the potentially setting-shaking secrets they were sitting on was unclear even to them.
