Reboot of old topic.

Basically, a villain in a formerly light or comedic series who is played completely straight, in order to display a mood shift toward the dramatic. He may Kick the Dog or Rape The Dog in order to show he means buisiness. In webcomics, this may be a symptom of Cerberus Syndrome (not sure if that topic survived either)

Typically the Big Bad or The Dragon of a series.

Examples:

Legato from Trigun.
