** [[AGodAmI Nergal]], one of the three founders of the [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating Baali bloodline]], manages to stick out even by their standards. Almost solely responsible for turning the Baali into a ReligionOfEvil so vile that they make the Followers of Set seem tame by comparison, Nergal ruled a city in ancient Mesopotamia as a king, and unleashed a plague on his own people in an attempt to awaken a sleeping EldritchAbomination. Moloch, another of the clan's founders, realized just how bad of an idea this was, and actually sold Nergal out to the other clans in a desperate attempt to stop him. Nergal, of course, survived, attempted the same ritual again, and when that failed, went to the New World and declared himself a God to the Aztec people, who named him "[[Myth/AztecMythology Huitzilopochtli]]." He went on to establish a particularly brutal practice of blood sacrifice and human sacrifice. When the Lasombra-led Spanish Conquistadors showed up, Nergal casually sold his followers out and went into torpor beneath what is now Mexico City, where he remains to this day. Even in the present, the surviving descendants of Moloch seek to stop Nergal and his descendants from breaking the world by creating HellOnEarth. How bad Nergal is can be demonstrated by the fact that nearly half of a bloodline universally regarded as the most malevolent in the entire setting [[EvenEvilHasStandards thinks he's a menace and needs to be stopped]].

The nihilism of Generation X and the associated rise in popularity of the Goth subculture is what gave force and shape to this setting. It was so dark and bleak at its peak that TabletopGame/CastleFalkenstein and many other tabletop games were created specifically as an escape for role players who didn't want a dark, soulless, brutal game every time they touched a die.

* 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 the bloodlines 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 most of the rest of the clan wiped out in the space of a week. Problem solved?

** [[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 both the living and the dead and become the unquestioned master of everyone.

* 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.
