[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* School bully Bugs Meany from ''Literature/EncyclopediaBrown''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* Dr. Nefarious, a BigBad in the ''RatchetAndClank'' series (''Up Your Arsenal'' and ''A Crack in Time'').

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sinister]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* Sinistrad from ''Literature/TheDeathGateCycle''.
* Zig-zagged in [[HiveSeries the H.I.V.E. series,]] where the Political Manipulation instructor, the [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Contessa Maria Sinistre]], is a HeelFaceRevolvingDoor. The trend stops later in with her [[spoiler: granddaughter Lucy Dexter. "Dexter" being an alias to protect her identity, as she would not be able to study at the H.I.V.E. normally if the other students knew she also had MindControl like her grandmother. However, she is a good character, even one of the series love interests, until her DeathOfTheHypotenuse fate in book six.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Vishous]] from J.R. Ward's ''Literature/BlackDaggerBrotherhood'' novels, mercifully shortened to 'V'. Most of her male characters have bizarrely spelled "badass" names, including Torhment, Phury, Zsadist, Rhage, Rehvenge, and Wrath (well, that last one is spelled correctly). John Matthew doesn't fare any better with his warrior name: [[spoiler: Tehrror; as does Butch when he's revealed to be a half-breed and gets saddled with a vampiric name of legend: The Dehstroyer.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music ]]

* Sid Vicious of the Music/SexPistols. Sid was actually not that violent, nor was he particularly good in a fight; the pose of being a "moral danger" was certainly deliberate.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Vile]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* Count Vile from ''PressStart''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* Lord Vile from ''Literature/SkulduggeryPleasant''.
* Venandekatra the Vile in BelisariusSeries. It is specifically noted that other names(like "Grim") carry a compliment with them as well as an insult; they imply that someone is a MagnificentBastard. Whereas vile is just an insult.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* The original Japanese name of ''VideoGame/MegaManZero's'' BigBad is ''Vile''. There was also a Vile in ''VideoGame/MegaManX1'', ''VideoGame/MegaManX3'', and ''VideoGame/MegaManX8''.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Subtly, several names translate to disabilities, though that's not always bad. On the good side, Cecile from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' ("Blind"). On the bad side, Claudia from ''TheVampireChronicles'' ("Lame"). "Cecile" comes from "caecus", which means "blind" in Latin. In olden times it implied powers of prophesy as well, since many famous seers (Tiresias for example) were blind.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comicbooks]]
* [=DePrayve=] from ''Comicbook/WerewolfByNight'', [[JekyllAndHyde an evil side of a good scientist]] who chose to go by that name since he is "[[CardCarryingVillain depraved]]".

* In VorkosiganSaga Emperor Dorca's [[TheDragon dragon]] is Pierre La Sanguinerre which means "Bloody Pete" in English.
* ''Literature/HorusHeresy'': In a series based on a [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} franchise]] absolutely encrusted with nightmarish titles, the high-ranking Dark Mechanicus official Urtzi ''Malevolus'' has one of the least subtle; most of the others at least did something violent to earn a title like "Flesh Tearer" or "the Red Angel", Urtzi seemingly joined up with a surname that is "malevolent" with the last few letters changed, then got promoted to a high rank.

** Also, anything at all "of Borg".
