[[caption-width-right:328:[[StupidEvil Evil. But not all that smart...]]]]

->'''Castor:''' Let's be honest, Arudin, you're more evil than most of the villains we face.\\
'''Khagoth:''' Meaner too.\\
'''Arudin:''' I am ''not'' evil! I am just... colorfully pragmatic!\\
'''Khagoth:''' Whatever.\\
'''Castor:''' We're going to bed, Captain Evil.
-->-- ''Dungeoncrawl Inc.''

Just because the main characters are fighting to oust the BigBad [[VillainProtagonist doesn't mean they're heroes]]... at least, [[CastCalculus not all of them]].

In a team composed of good members, there will often be one Token Evil Teammate. Narratively, this character can serve as an distinct and amoral {{foil}} to his more strait-laced colleagues. If the Heroes start putting HonorBeforeReason, the Token Evil will often remind them that sometimes unpleasant methods are needed to save the world. They also provide YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame for when the heroes are getting ''too'' pragmatic and forget their morals.

These characters are often PlayedForLaughs as the HeroicComedicSociopath. A lot of the humor they provide is of the CrossesTheLineTwice variety, doing obscenely wrong things because it's shocking and unexpected, as well as a form of escapism. On the other side of the fence, a very serious character that fills this role might see it as DirtyBusiness, and [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork do what they have to]] on behalf of the hero.

Despite the name, the Token Evil Teammate has a lot of leeway as to his CharacterAlignment. There are many kinds of [[AntiHero Anti-Heroes]], [[AntiVillain Anti-Villains]] and yes, outright {{Villain}}s who can fill this role. Regardless of character type, the mainstays of this role are usually: [[DeadpanSnarker snarkiness]], [[{{Jerkass}} jerkiness]], [[SociopathicHero violence]], and a tendency to become the ButtMonkey for their behavior. It should also be mentioned that [[BetrayalTropes "treachery"]] was not on that list. The thing with the Token Evil Teammate is that evil does not mean incapable of friendship. While they are usually out for themselves first, they will often have reasons to stay loyal to their team as a whole, or at least individual members.

Sometimes they'll ([[VitriolicBestBuds very]]) begrudgingly admit that they like their teammates, or at least find them less intolerable than they say, and frequently they find their association either lucrative, entertaining, or even enjoyable. If it's pointed out by somebody that [[HiddenHeartOfGold they're not as bad as they make themselves out to be]] though, they'll generally tell them to shut up, or to take it back. For extra points, this can be done in either a very cold, aloof or very ''rude'' and ''loud'' way.

If they do betray their teammates, expect TheCaptain to tighten the MoralityChain or RestrainingBolt and use various threats like {{Death Glare}}s to bring them back in line. Why don't they kill him or at least kick him out? Because sometimes you just need the firepower, and they can "do more good than malice" (or at least less harm) on the good guys' side than dead or cut loose. Kind of like controlling a brush fire to good ends.

'''Some variations include:'''
* They're OnlyInItForTheMoney. Or the opportunity to loot, pillage, and plunder. Bribes and financially based threats keep them in line.
* PsychoSidekick: They have a mutual friendship, or family relationship, with one of the heroes that survives despite their basically evil orientation. But don't expect them to be helpful for anybody else.
** Sometimes, the friendship is established during the show, at which point the purely money-hungry evil teammate will "tip his hand" and [[FriendOrIdolDecision save his friend rather than get the idol]].
* The evil friend is TheStarscream and sees the heroes as the best way to topple the existing BigBad.
* The PoisonousFriend is the WellIntentionedExtremist of the party, willing to do [[TheUnfettered anything]] for his buddy's ideals.
* They were recruited because [[RecruitingTheCriminal they have skills, cunning, and general attitude]] that the heroes know will be useful, even if they hate having them around.
* They have an ulterior motive for joining the heroes, and the heroes' plans will further their own agenda.
* They have a [[ItsPersonal grudge]] against the BigBad, or they may want to put a stop to them because EvenEvilHasStandards.
* Sometimes they're just in it ForTheEvulz. The hero is on an exciting, heroic quest that will save the world, but it also involves a lot of killing mooks, and they've got nothing better to do right now. They want to cause chaos and rain down carnage, and this is the best way to do it.
* Alternatively they are a type of BloodKnight or PsychoForHire and joining the heroes allows them to turn their violence towards [[PayEvilUntoEvil the heroes' enemies]] rather than innocents.
* On rare occasions, WhoWatchesTheWatchmen In a setting where a BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil matters, or just any setting with GrayAndGrayMorality, having somebody on your team with some shaky morality can help keep things in perspective. See YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame, and EvenEvilHasStandards.

Contrast BigBadFriend for where the team-mate's evil nature is a shock revelation. For the [[InvertedTrope inversion]], see TokenGoodTeammate. For extremes on the spectrum, see GoodIsNotNice and AffablyEvil. Usually, but not always, a NominalHero.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
** [[MadScientist Mayuri Kurotsuchi's]] moral code is non-existent if it means obtaining [[ForScience scientific break throughs]]. He turned his subordinates into human bombs without their knowledge. He conducted quincy experiments by torturing them to death. He'll even kill 28,000 people in the name of world soul-balance. His results are undeniably useful, but his methods are completely evil. WordOfGod stated that Mayuri is his exploration of the concept of "necessary evil".
** Kenpachi Zaraki is an AxCrazy BloodKnight who has no problem physically assaulting his own underlings. He doesn't care whether people are friends or enemies. All he cares about is finding the strongest fighters so that he can enjoy fighting to the death. If he finds a WorthyOpponent, such as Ichigo, he'll go all out to arrange circumstances to ensure he gets the chance to fight that person, even if it means turning on his own people to achieve that goal.
* Ikki from ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' is a milder version of the AloofBigBrother and LonersAreFreaks variety. While he ''was'' purged of much of his evil in the first tournament arc, his involvement in the service of Athena is usually restricted to making sure his younger brother is safe...and killing off his attackers in brutal ways.
* Another (sort of) milder version is [[HeroicComedicSociopath Mugen]] from ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo''. [[TheUnfettered He has no restraints]] and is more of a WildCard than his chivalrous companions
* Xellos from ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'', Calling him a teammate is a bit of a stretch but he does hang around the heroes and they often work together. Considering how powerful he is (one step or two steps below BigBad depending on the season) it would be hard and dangerous to make him leave. Most of the time he's AffablyEvil and [[ItAmusedMe dicking around with them for lolz]] so they tolerate him.
** Case in point, ''Slayers Try'' when Xelloss actually did betray Lina in order to recruit Valgav. When Lina found out, she merely hit him on the head a few times.
--->'''Lina''': Xelloss is a monster, so we expect that of him.
* Hiei in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''. The way he shows off his ruthlessness makes him almost just EvenEvilHasStandards, at least until later on.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Technically, they're ''all'' [[BlackAndGrayMorality villains]] to some extent, but among the Knights of the Round, you have a conflicted ex-[[WideEyedIdealist idealist]], an amiable AcePilot, a MartialPacifist, a ReiAyanamiExpy, three lady knights we don't know much about but seem nice enough... and then there's [[AxCrazy Luciano Bradley]], aka the Vampire of Britannia, aka the Homicide Genius, who specifically joined in order to kill people.
** Diethard and Rolo are this for The Black Knights.
*** Diethard once again is this along the leader himself when he joins [[spoiler:Schneizel]]. He's the one who justified sacrificing their official leader claiming that baits are not allowed to talk.
* In ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' Kyoya is a slight subversion. It is commonly accepted amongst the group that everything he does is for the sake of personal gain and profit, but Haruhi manages to prove otherwise on occasion.
* ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'': Milder example, but [[AntiVillain November 11]] plays the Best Evil Friend Variety when working with police officer Kirihara who is one of the few people he'd risk his life for and go out of his way to help. In general, Contractors are supposed to be the Token Evil Teammates of the intelligence agencies which use them for their powers and ability to kill without remorse. The main character of the series, Hei, is a slight subversion. [[NobleBigotWithABadge Contractor-hating human Huang]] is Hei's [[TheHandler Handler]] and frequently berates him for having qualms about missions and not acting as evil as a Contractor is supposed to be.
* In ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'', Hiyoshi Wakashi is kind of the Hyoutei team's token evil teammate (his not so secret aim is to "overthrow" the captain, and he tends to be quite cynical). Also a SixthRanger.
** Initially even more so, Akutsu Jin for the Yamabuki team (serves rocks at people, is rude to his mom, prone to violence), although it's safe to say he's revealed to be [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold not that bad]], ''deep'' down. Specially in the presence of [[MoralityPet one Takashi Kawamura or one Taichi Dan]].
* Barry the Chopper in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. While most of the cast are trying to do what's best for the country, Barry just wants to get rid of the Homunculi so he can be free to start killing again. Although his [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} true intentions]] for wanting to hunt down his own body are mostly unknown.
** Also later, [[spoiler:Greed]] to a lesser extent.
* Faye Valentine of ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' occasionally is this. There are times when she seems to genuinely care about the crew, while other times she's a {{Jerkass}} to everybody and seems to only care about herself. She has also stolen bounties that rightfully belonged to another crew-member at least a couple of times as well. Though, honestly, [[BlackAndGrayMorality she isn't that much worse than them.]]
** Also, she's barely a team member in the strict sense. Half the time she's on the Bebop, she's restrained while they check her belongings.
* [[DarkMagicalGirl Evangeline]] of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. Since she plays the role of the OldMaster in the protagonist team, she makes token attempts to bring TheHero over to the dark side. (Which [[BlackMagic seems to]] [[TheCorruption have worked]].)
** And Haruna, who displays some sadistic tendencies and is apparently determined to {{Take Over The|World}} MagicWorld. She's not ''malicious'', but she's extremely ambitious and manipulative, to the point that she's mostly on the good side out of convenience.
** Since RousseauWasRight in this series, it actually manages an evil example in [[AxCrazy Tsukuyomi]].
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Vegeta after his EnemyMine with the good guys against Frieza,. Until the very end of DBZ, the only reason he helps the heroes is because [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou no one else can kill Goku.]]
** That, and the fact that he has no interest in letting a villain destroy the Earth since, you know, he lives there now with his family.
** Lunch qualified in ''Manga/DragonBall''. [[JekyllAndHyde Well, half the time]].
* Chizuru in ''LightNovel/SeitokaiNoIchizon'' her main role being TheGadfly. Unless you happen to be [[SingleTargetSexuality Kurimu]].
* [[PsychopathicManchild Russia]] from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', based on Real Life. With a FreudianExcuse, to boot.
** On the other hand, the rest of [[WeAREStrugglingTogether the Allies]] [[{{Jerkass}} aren't]] [[ItsAllAboutMe much]] [[BloodOnTheDebateFloor better]]
* [[AxCrazy Narciso]] [[StalkerWithACrush Anasui]] from Part 6 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''.
* The Keroro Platoon in ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' has Sergeant Major Kururu, a JerkAss MadScientist with a fondness for tormenting his teammates, and pretty much everyone he comes in contact with. One of the earliest excuses for the frogs not making progress is that Kururu won't invent anything useful unless it strikes him as interesting at the time.
** And the frogs themselves are, at least in theory, a Token Evil ''Team'' to the Hinata household, seeing as they're supposed to be taking over the world. They don't really ever make much progress, though.
* [[UsefulNotes/{{Ukraine}} Yulia Tymoshenko]] in ''Manga/TheLegendOfKoizumi''. She frightens ''[[BadAss Vladimir Putin]]''.
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'': Mukuro Rokudo has explicitly stated that the only reason he is working with Tsuna and his group is so that he can eventually [[GrandTheftMe steal Tsuna's body]]. In a similar vein, Mukuro's [[{{Expy}} counterpart]] from the first generation of Guardians, Daemon Spade, was stated to be a backstabber.
** Despite what some fangirls will tell you and despite the fact he's almost always accompanied by an adorable [[CoolPet bird pet]], [[BloodKnight Kyoya Hibari]] isn't a much better person than Mukuro and Daemon. However, the first Cloud Guardian, Alaude, was said to be similar to him in his younger days but he got better (despite remaining cold and aloof), so it's possible Hibari might grow up as a decent person. As it stands, however, Kyoya [[{{Jerkass}} is]] [[AxCrazy not]] [[{{Delinquents}} one]].
* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' has Yoichi Hiruma, the scheming, trigger-happy, demon-faced captain of the Deimon Devil Bats. [[JerkJock Agon Kongo]] becomes this in the World Cup arc; he only [[EnemyMine joined Team Japan]] because he wanted to win the three million dollars, and isn't above threatening his own teammates to do so.
* Hallelujah from ''Anime/{{Gundam 00}}''. An odd version in that he's just Allelujah's SuperpoweredEvilSide.
* There have been several Token Evil Teammates throughout the various ''Manga/{{Gantz}}'' rosters, but the two that stick out the most are Nishi and Izumi. Nishi is an extremely nihilistic {{jerkass}} whose actions are on occasion at least somewhat understandable, whereas Izumi is far more damaging.
* After Ayato Naoi [[HeelFaceTurn joins the SSS]] in ''Anime/AngelBeats'', he still retains his [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], {{Jerkass}} personality, regularly insults the entire SSS ([[HoYay "except you, Otonashi!"]]), and uses [[HypnoticEyes hypnosis]] on the other members mostly ForTheLulz.
* Diana, one of the Selacao from ''Anime/EdenOfTheEast'' is introduced as a SerialKiller known as the "Johnny Hunter", who has been killing men by [[GroinAttack castrating them with a cigar cutter]]. She turns out to be a SerialKillerKiller of sorts, only targeting rapists. In the film, ''The King of Eden'', she's become considerably nicer and is a loyal ally to the heroes, but notwithstanding this and her [[AssholeVictim selectivity of victims]], she's still a mass murderer.
* Zebra from ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' possibly counts.
* In ''Manga/FlameOfRecca'', Recca has control over 7 dragons, all of them are more or less amiable ([[spoiler:One of them is his BumblingDad]]), except one certain dragon named Setsuna. He ''hates'' Recca, wants nothing more than to kill him and be free, and resume his old life... as a sociopath mass-murderer. Recca still beats him down to submission.
* [[spoiler:Arlong]] in ''Manga/OnePiece'' was this in the [[spoiler:Sun Pirates]]. While there were other unsavory characters in that group, [[spoiler:Arlong would be the first one to suggest violent terrorism towards humans. He even wanted to kill a slave just for being human.]]
** At Sabaody, The Supernovas Eustass Kidd and Trafalgar Law [[BackToBackBadasses briefly teamed up with Luffy]]. Kidd seemed to be this at the time, with his evil apparently nothing more than an InformedAbility. [[spoiler:It wasn't.]] More recently, [[spoiler: Law made a return as an ally]] and is a minor version this, being a much colder character than any of the Straw Hats, and acting as a foil for their playfulness. But, to his chagrin, he's found that spending too much time with them [[spoiler:NotSoAboveItAll opens him to their quirks]].
** During the Impel Down arc, we had [[spoiler:[[EvilChancellor Crocodile]], who, in a textbook example of TeethClenchedTeamwork, doesn't get along well with Luffy at all. Or with Jimbei for that matter.]]
* Nguyen from the ''Manga/{{Area 88}}'' manga and OVA. Even by mercenary standards, he's an unhinged sadist.
* Laxus and his [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Raijinshuu]] are this for ''Manga/FairyTail'' until the end of the "Battle of Fairy Tail" arc. CharacterDevelopment then sets in.
* ''Manga/HistorysStrongestDiscipleKenichi'': The Shinpaku Alliance has one as the ''leader'', Nijima. Various other characters in their orbit could also be considered as such depending on how strictly you [[IWasJustPassingThrough ascribe the term "teammate" to them]]. These can include [[spoiler: three members of YOMI; Tanimoto Natsu, Rachael Stanley and Kushinada Chikage. All of them have friendly dealings with Kenichi and the rest of the Shinpaku Alliance even if they have yet to renounce their ties to YOMI.]]
* [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Dark]] [[SixthRanger Bakura]] in ''Manga/YuGiOh'', in the manga at least.
** Weevil/Haga and Rex/Ryuzaki served as this in the first third of the anime's Doma arc, up until [[FaceHeelTurn joining Doma]].
* [[spoiler: Wolfwood]], while not an "evil" character, actually serves as this in ''Manga/{{Trigun}} Maximum''. Although in [[DownplayedTrope the anime]] the revelation that he was working with the Gung-Ho Guns was saved until late in its run to make it a surprise twist, the manga on the other hand revealed this almost immediately after his first appearance. Although he is helping Vash against the other GHG members, he is actually following orders to keep him alive no matter what the cost (even if it involves killing the rest of the GHG). It's only much later (after most of the other 'Guns have been killed) does he completely abandon the antagonists' side and fully start working with Vash.
* [[MadScientist Dr. Stein]] on ''Manga/SoulEater''. Most of the time he's more of a sociopathic {{Cloudcuckoolander}} than truly "evil", but he is much more morally-ambiguous and prone to insanity than the rest of the characters. In the anime, he even [[spoiler: has a temporary FaceHeelTurn, but he [[BrainwashedAndCrazy was not fully in control of himself at the time.]]]]
* ''Manga/{{InuYasha}}'': A stretch, but the title character himself was kind of this to his group at the beginning of the series, making it clear on multiple occasions that he was only helping Kagome track down the scattered shards of the [[AmplifierArtifact Shikon Jewel]] so he could use them to become a full-fledged {{youkai}}. Of course, [[CharacterDevelopment he gets better]].
* ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'': Ruby Moon is perhaps the closest to being genuinely antagonistic out of Eriol's posse; she intentionally interferes with Touya and Yukito so she could steal Touya's power for herself and let Yue, and Yukito by extension, fade and die. When she realizes the futility of her efforts, however, she backs off and limits herself to aiding Eriol.
* ''Manga/BreakBlade'' has Girge. He is [[AxCrazy more than a little insane]], the [[AcePilot best pilot]] of the whole team and a real {{Badass}}. He is also not above [[TeamKiller killing teammates]] if he feels like it.
--> [[FauxAffablyEvil ''I might start killing teammates again. That okay with you?'']]
* Tsukiyama becomes this to Kaneki's group in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', after his pseudo HeelFaceTurn. The rest of the group definitely don't trust him, and he's excluded from living with the rest of the group as a direct result. He's only there because of his [[StalkerWithACrush obsession]] with Kaneki, and allowed to stick around because Kaneki relies on him to help do the dirty work. When the others in the group ask him to delay going to help Kaneki and attempt to use ThePowerOfFriendship to convince him.....he responds that he'll [[{{Yandere}} simply kill them]] and blame their enemies for it.
* In ''Manga/MahouShoujoOfTheEnd'', Akuta is a corrupt cop who doesn't care about anybody and is constantly sexually harassing girls. The survivors have no choice but to tolerate him and let him join them because he's a total badass who can slay zombies and magical girls with ease.
* ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' has the utterly amoral Paul von Oberstein, one of the most extreme [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well-Intentioned Extremists]] in animation. All of Reinhard allies hate him, but tolerate his presence because his methods ''work''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Card Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': Crovax, in the short time between becoming a vampire and undergoing a FaceHeelTurn.
** Deconstructed later on in the story arc, in which Urza takes a team of the multiverse's most powerful planeswalkers to Phyrexia to perform a raid on the plane in his efforts to destroy Yawgmoth...including the EvilSorceror Tevesh Szat, who had posed issues to Dominaria in the past. As it turns out, he ends up turning on his comrades and slaughtering a few of them. And Urza was fully expecting this to happen - he hired Szat just because he had hoped he would betray the team so that he'd have an excuse to siphon out the souls of Tevesh Szat and his victims and use them as bombs. Really, by this point the only thing keeping Urza anywhere close to the side of good was the fact that he was doing this in order to kill someone a hundred times worse than he was.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} The X-Men]] like this. Sabertooth has been on the team at least twice (though one of those times it was a situation where they didn't want to kill him, but didn't trust anyone else to deal with him - he was an involuntary teammate).
** Juggernaut, Magneto, Mystique... at least Juggernaut and Magneto went to genuine {{Heel Face Turn}}s.
* The ComicBook/YoungAvengers has their 'Team Sociopath,' Tommy Shepard AKA Speed.
** There's also one of the Token ChaoticNeutral variety with [[JourneyIntoMystery Kid Loki]]. [[spoiler: Or rather, considering it's old Loki, one of the biggest bad guys in the MarvelUniverse, in the body of his younger self, it's straight token evil teammate]].
* Also X-related, [[ComicBook/IllyanaRasputin Magik]] from the ''ComicBook/NewMutants'' spent her whole time on the team battling her demonic side, but that didn't stop her from being the first to suggest killing some bad guys. When the other kids would tell her they don't kill, she would compromise by sending the villain to Hell.
--> "[[BlackComedyRape She is not to be physically harmed S'ym. Beyond that, use your imagination.]]" -following the team's capture of the [[TheVamp Enchantress]].
** An adult version of Magik from an alternate universe filled this role for a while in ''Comicbook/{{Exiles}}''.
* The Comedian of ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'', who even went as far as to try to rape one of the other members of the team. Whether or not the other members are any better than the criminals they go after is debatable (excepting both Nite Owls, whose biggest flaw in both cases is being largely ineffective), but The Comedian is definitely the worst of them and seems to thrive on torturing and killing people. He even kills a pregnant woman ([[MoralEventHorizon carrying his own child!]]) back in Vietnam. He's also more or less the exact opposite of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica (consider his stars-and-stripes patriotic outfit), inverted on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism.
* [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/donnad/avatar-the-last-airbender-the-search-part-1?xid=ATLAFB Azula]] fills this role in the ''ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSearch''. She has lost none of her cruelty or manipulation abilities, but has gone a bit insane as well.
* L.E.G.I.O.N. had the ComedicSociopath Lobo working as a core member of the team because he lost a bet to team leader Vril Dox... and Lobo [[EvenEvilHasStandards never]] [[IGaveMyWord goes back on a promise]].
* [[BeastMan Feral]] from the first XForce team fit the bill perfectly. She was a FaceHeelTurn waiting to happen (and it eventually did).
** And in ''X-Statix'', there was a bizarre inversion-subversion mix with Arnie Lundberg, the Mysterious Fan Boy, as a token ''good'' teammate in a team made up of people who don't care about morality at all. Arnie is an idealistic kid who believes being a hero is its own reward, and as such is easily the most moral member of the team ''ever''. He's also easily the one who has inspired the most fear, having terrorized his hometown with his RealityWarper powers with a total lack of remorse. Eventually friend of the team Lacuna takes it upon herself to kill him before he can cause any more harm.
* Though HsuAndChan aren't exactly the most moral duo, Gila Mobster fits this role perfectly in their misadventures, using methods which the titular brothers insist that he keep to himself and carrying out several odd jobs for local mafias and corporations which actually leads to him trying to murder Hsu in ''Brand Loyalty''.
* Loki "Trust me! I'm the God of Lies!" Laufeysson in the Danish comic ''{{Valhalla}}'', based on NorseMythology. Mostly saved from being hateful by being comically inept.
* Princess Lucinda for the line-up of the second volume of ''WitchGirlsTales''.
* When the six Infinity Gems were split after ''ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet'', they were split among five known members of Adam Warlock's Infinity Watch, with the Reality Gem given to an unknown sixth member, eventually revealed to be an extremely potent version of this trope: [[spoiler: Thanos - not only an enemy of Adam Warlock, but the one who Adam had taken the Gauntlet ''from''.]]
* There tends to be at least one during in ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' during any given period. Rose Wilson (Ravager) and Damian Wayne (Robin) were the most recent.
* Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen: Both Hyde and Nemo are [[SociopathicHero Sociopathic Heroes]], but it's the Invisible Man that [[InvisibleJerkass really]] [[MisanthropeSupreme takes]] [[SixthRangerTraitor the]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil cake]].
* Karla Soften AKA Moonstone was this after the ''Comicbook/{{Thunderbolts}}'' turned good, having turned on Zemo out of her own self-interest and never quite making the jump to being a good person.
* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom becoming a member of the Future Foundation is the very epitome of this trope.
* GreenLantern once featured the New Guardians, a team comprised of one member from each of the Corps, and Arkillo of the Sinestro Corps was this trope for the team.
* Blackblood of ABCWarriors was a robot literally designed to be evil, and as such has turned on his teammates on several occasions. He's quite openly said that he'd like to kill Hammerstein, the leader.
* Ladytron in various incarnations of ''WildCATS''. An extremely powerful and volatile cyborg, she was mostly recruited onto the team because the alternative is ''not'' having her on your side. It took weeks of holographic simulations to break her down into a somewhat manageable, not-so-murderous state, but she's still only "good" in name and because her teammates force her to be.
* [[EvilSorcerer Darkhell]] from ComicBook/LesLegendaires briefly filled this role when he agreed to become TheChampion for [[PhysicalGod the Guardian]] with his GoodTwin Elysio during their crusade against [[GodOfEvil Anathos]]; the only reason he agreed to do this was because he was given more power, brought back to life with a new body and had to kill his [[ArchEnemy Arch-Enemies]] the Legendaries as the main mission due to them being candidates to become the hosts for Anathos' reincarnation. Ironically, [[spoiler:he and Elysio both end up doing an HeroicSacrifice to save the Legendaries.]]
* In ''ComicBook/TheMovement'', Katharsis is this to [[LaResistance the titular group]]. She is the most violent and is willing to kill or at least maim her enemies. The others have to keep her from going over the edge.
* In whatever incarnation of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' he is in, Comicbook/SuperiorSpiderMan serves as this.
* Magog served as this for the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica, though he eventually got kicked off the team.
* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' has a Token Evil Teammate on the crew of the ''Lost Light'', and surprisingly, it isn't Cyclonus (who's more of an AntiHero in this series), it's Whirl, the mentally unstable, ex-Wrecker with a DarkAndTroubledPast who is indirectly responsible for the entirety of the Great War itself (and also been voted Most Autobot Likely To Defect ''twice''). He's had a few PetTheDog moments here and there, and hasn't crossed the MoralEventHorizon yet, but still remains the most morally black member of the team.
* Damian Wayne and Jason Todd tend to be this to the Bat-Family. How? On several occasions they have not only killed enemies, but they've also attacked and/or attempted to murder members of the Bat-Family, most notably (and frequently), Tim Drake.
* In the Comicbook/{{New 52}} [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]], SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor is this to the rest of the League, having discovered Batman's secret identity and used the knowledge to blackmail his way on to the team.
** [[Characters/TheFlash Captain Cold]], who Luthor insisted on bringing along, serves as a downplayed example in comparison.
* ''ComicBook/AvengersAI'' features [[SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom a Doombot]] as part of that particular team, who is kept in line by a miniature black hole in his chest.
* Due to events in ''ComicBook/GreatLakesAvengers'' and ''{{ComicBook/Axis}}'' respectively, {{SelfDemonstrating/Deadpool}} and [[Franchise/SpiderMan Hobgoblin]] are considered reserve members of Franchise/TheAvengers. While Deadpool has more or less redeemed himself some time ago, Hobgoblin has only become a good guy because he's realized that he could make even more money as a "hero for hire" and is thus still willing to resort to all his old villain tricks to get the job done.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi has Jadeite as both a straight example, and as something of an inversion. As part of his ''Literature/ShadesOfGrey'' theme, he learns empathy and gains a more uplifting world outlook due to Mercury's influence. Regardless, he is by far the most straightforward, pragmatic, and blunt of Ami's advisors in regards to her goals and resorts to [[CombatPragmatist dubious methods]] at times if the situation warrents it.
* ''FanFic/SlightlyAltered'' has Azurai, who only helps Buwaro friends [[spoiler: find their missing family members]] because Buwaro's his adoptive son. While he's nowhere near as bad as his canon self, he's still done some truly horrible things [[spoiler: like murdering Buwaro's parents, hence why the kid's adopted in the first place]].
* ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged'': Sailor Mars was originally a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold slightly bitchy]] [[{{Miko}} Shinto priestess]]/ActionGirl. Now she's an AxCrazy {{Goth}} EmoTeen [[AcceptableReligiousTargets Satanist]]. She makes no bones about her various attempts to kill [[TheFool Serena]] and regularly alludes to mass ([[OffstageVillainy offscreen]]) sacrifice of her [[ReligionOfEvil temple's]] patrons. During her off-duty hours she regularly abuses drugs, [[TooKinkyToTorture gets off on enemy attacks]] and [[DrivenToSuicide fantasizes about dying horribly]] [[AHellOfATime and spending eternity in hell]]. [[EnsembleDarkhorse And the viewers went]] ''[[EnsembleDarkhorse wild]]''.
* Ike of the Pokemon fanfic {{Pedestal}} first met the protagonists by attacking the narrator and ferociously declaring that he would rip them to shreds. After joining the party, he still plans to murder Namnar after a certain period of time, and after years of working with Des and Carlita, still comes very close to attacking them. Eventually, Ike morphs into a SourSupporter.
* Makuhita of the fanfic The Retelling Of Pokemon Colosseum is DEFINITLEY an example.
* The Team mage in ''FanFic/{{Wardens}}'' not only could care less about his fellow wardens and often sits back and lets them struggle...he actively murders other soldiers on a whim or turns them into bombs regardless of if they were dying or not. A very literal BloodKnight if you will.
* [[KaraNoKyoukai Mana Ryougi]] is this to TheEmiyaClan. She, like her mother, had a very skewed morality, but unlike her mother, she mostly works as a contract assassin, trading blood for money with few restrictions. The others have mixed feelings about her. [[BlackKnight Kiri]] and [[ChurchMilitant Aleksi]] have issues with her lack of loyalty to any particular cause and her willingness to interfere with them if she is paid to. On the other hand, [[{{Ninja}} Touma]] idolizes and respects her for her efficiency, iron will, and dedication to standards that she hammered into him when she trained him as an assassin. Everyone else is somewhere in between.
* In ''FanFic/ThatEpicPlan'' Beyond Birthday is this for the Kira Taskforce-at least in ''theory.'' In practice he's Light's [[TheDragon Dragon]].
* ''FanFic/FalloutEquestriaProjectHorizons'' has the AxCrazy [[TheBerserker berserker]] Rampage and the tormented RogueDrone Lacunae.
* In ''Fanfic/TheUniversiad'', the Office of Special Resources is viewed as this InUniverse by some of the Forum's members or its allies who disapprove of TheUnfettered extents to which they are willing to go to protect and advance the Forum.
* In the fanfic ''The Misadventures of Cell and Frieza'', the eponymous duo become this in order to [[spoiler: defeat Majin Buu. However, this is mainly because they want to destroy the Earth and the Z-fighters themselves.]]
* FanFic/StallionsofHarmonyVerse has Sunset Shimmer being this towards Twilight Sparkle and Moondancer. When they got themselves into trouble, she was going to shift all the blame on herself, because everypony will blame her anyway. Twilight objects to that idea and reassures her that they are in this together.
* Averted in the fic ''[[http://games.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=544208229 Things Skippy the Dwarf can't do in the dungeon]]''; the other party members won't let Skippy use this as an excuse to do evil things.

* Mittens from ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' is an example [[spoiler: only in the titular dog's mind]], but she sure plays the role to its hilt.
* Xibalba, of the three main Gods in ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife''. He won't hesitate to indirectly ruin the lives of innocent mortals if it somehow benefits him. [[spoiler:He changes by the end]].

* Ed Harris' character in ''Film/NationalTreasure 2''
* The ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' series features a lot of Evil Teammates. Even after it comes to light that Allison Doody's with the bad guys, there's still some teamwork between her and both Indy and his father. It's pretty well established that RayWinstone's character in the fourth Indiana Jones movie, but Indy takes him along for the ride anyways.
* Hannibal Lecter acts this way to both Clarice Starling in ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' and Will Graham in ''Film/{{Manhunter}}'' and ''Film/RedDragon''.
* In ''Film/TheGamers: Dorkness Rising'':
-->'''Sorceress:''' I am not evil! I'm ChaoticNeutral!\\
'''Everyone:''' ''(deadpan)'' You are evil\\
'''Paladin:'''...and a whore.
* Ajax in ''Film/TheWarriors'', who fits this role in so many ways. He was recruited for his brute strength and fighting ability, he's a lecher and potential rapist, he threatens to become the EvilChancellor, and he's [[PetTheDog unexpectedly good-hearted toward weaker members of the gang]].
* ''Film/TheDirtyDozen'':
** Archer Maggott is a bigoted, psychotic, woman-hating, murdering rapist, and Major Reisman knows it. But given that Maggott is also a trained G.I., and the operation needs all the help it can get, Reisman retains his services. Maggott doesn't mind volunteering for the mission once he realizes it could save him from the hangman. [[spoiler: Ultimately he goes completely insane, attempts to kill his teammates, and almost sabotages the entire operation, but for a while at least he was a warm body with a machine gun.]]
** Victor Franko is a member of the Mafia (and a convicted murderer), has no respect for authority, and makes several attempts to escape and/or undermine Reisman's authority. [[spoiler: He got better, though.]]
* ''Film/XMen'':
** In ''Film/XMen1'', Sabretooth's one the few pure evil members of the Brotherhood unlike the others who are simply {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s.
** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Erik is part of Charles' team primarily because he has a personal grudge against Shaw, and views the youngsters' mutant powers as useful tools to topple the BigBad.
* [[EvilPrince Loki]] becomes this for Thor and his friends in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', when they need his help to escape Asgard without the Bifrost.

[[folder:Literature]]
* Although he's not evil, Mundungus Fletcher from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is a criminal and a con artist. He was disliked by the other members of the Order of the Phoenix because he was considered untrustworthy. He did [[spoiler:eventually end up stealing from a member of the Order, and unwittingly giving a horcrux over to Dolores Umbridge.]]
** He also abandoned Mad-Eye Moody during battle, [[spoiler:possibly causing the latter's death]].
* The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' introduces Dr. Hix, the Unseen University Professor of Necromanc-- no, I'm sorry, ''[[InsistentTerminology Post-Mortem Communications]]''. By university statute he is required to commit [[PokeThePoodle acts of moderate evil]] on a regular basis, which makes him the Faculty's designated DeadpanSnarker. The position of Official Dark Wizard exists in order to have someone who can deal with ''un''official dark wizards. With fireballs.
** Hix was first introduced in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', but as he wasn't yet on the University Council, his acceptable level of rule-breaking was much lower and he still spelled his name [[XMakesAnythingCool "Hicks"]].
* In the DresdenFiles books, the gangster Johnny Marcone is this. Although he runs a criminal empire, and has no qualms about killing most people in cold blood, he is practical, DangerouslyGenreSavvy and often works with Harry, in one case saving his life. Given that he WouldntHurtAChild, and keeps his word, Harry has a hard time seeing him as a monster. And we see in ''Ghost Story'' that he goes much further [[spoiler: by funding an organization devoted to defending Chicago.]]
** Lea. Especially in ''Changes''. [[spoiler: Turning everyone into hounds, ambushing fellow teammates, reminiscing fondly over past human sacrifices, all while greedily eyeing the Swords,]] she plays the role to perfection.
* By about halfway through the series, Rachel from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' was getting there. It's heavily implied that she started out with nothing but a tendency towards pragmatism and ruthlessness that was slightly more pronounced than the other team members. But the group kept needing someone to do the smart thing, instead of the right thing, and Rachel kept volunteering, and it became a part of her character. As she put it in a later book, "They needed me to be the bad guy. And I needed them to be the good guys. Because if they were good guys, and I was on their side, then that meant that I was a good guy too. Even if I was different."
* Raistlin Majere from ''{{Dragonlance}} Chronicles''.
** Althought he quit the party some time around his FaceHeelTurn.
* [[spoiler:Mogget the white cat/albino dwarf]] from Garth Nix's Literature/OldKingdom Trilogy, actually a powerful Free Magic elemental that attempts to kill the nearest Abhorsen whenever he is freed from his binding. He frequently travels with and helps the protagonists in his bound form (though sometimes, especially during the last book, his motives and loyalties seem questionable). Still, he does come through for the good guys in the end [[spoiler:when he lends much-needed assistance to bind Orannis, because he just loves the living world too much]].
* In the [[Literature/{{Shannara}} Druid of Shannara]], Pe Ell plays this to Quickening's group, specifically inducted into the group because he was evil enough to bring about Quickening's necessary death.
* In ''[[ForgottenRealms Azure Bonds]]'', the red dragon Mist is this, but as Akabar notes, Mist's evil was rather petty, especially compared to that of the vile god [[EldritchAbomination Moander]], whom [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu Mist laid down her life to destroy]]. Olive Ruskettle, however, is a much more serious example, as she does betray the heroes, although she eventually pulls a HeelFaceTurn.
* By ''[[Literature/{{Daemon}} Freedom]]'', Loki/Gragg realises that he has become this, since the Darknet community has largely evolved beyond its early disaffected-and-misfits days to encompass many normal people and has little need of sociopathic hatchetmen like himself.
* Lokor in ''Literature/StarTrekKlingonEmpire''. Of all the Klingons who consistently follow Klag's authority and have yet to pull a FaceHeelTurn, Lokor is basically the one guy who has the fewest scruples in screwing people over to get them to toe the line and not buck the system, and most of his methods are disturbing in their effectiveness. On the other hand, he's also unbelievably useful and indispensable to the point that Klag trusts him implicitly.
* In the tenth LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya novel, [[spoiler: Kimidori revives AxCrazy Ryoko Asakura]] because "Your potential usefulness was marginally greater than the threat you present."
* ''Literature/TheReynardCycle'': Tybalt, who is a JerkAss at best. [[spoiler: Reynard's continued association with him in book three is a pretty big red flag that all is not well.]]
* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Robb Stark has one in the form of the cruel and ruthless Roose Bolton, who's more than willing to use monsters like [[PsychoForHire the Brave Companions]] and allows his soldiers to RapePillageAndBurn freely. He even goes as far as to [[spoiler:turn against Robb purely out of opportunism at the Red Wedding, with his forces joining the massacre of his former allies and him personally killing his former king]].
** The Lannisters had a bit of this (from the Starks' perspective, at least), since they killed Mad King Aerys and (most of) his children and family, directly or indirectly. Ned admits that [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork it had to happen]], but still views them with suspicion. The situation is... [[{{Understatement}} a bit more complicated than that]], but the Lannisters are [[RoyallyScrewedUp not exactly nice]]. And [[AmbitionIsEvil not exactly teammates]] anymore either.
* In the first Literature/{{NERDS}} book, Jackson Jones sort of counts, considering he was against the nerds before getting his braces, and being the only on a team of nerds to have been popular at one point.
* In ''Literature/TheYearOfRogueDragons'', Brimstone become one for the heroic party when they're forced into an alliance with him.
* ''Literature/BestServedCold'' has the MasterPoisoner Morveer play this role in the band of anti-heroes led by revenge-seeking mercenary Monza. While everyone on the team is shady, and Monza starts out as a borderline VillainProtagonist, Morveer is an outright [[TheSociopath sociopath]] totally lacking in morals or a sense of loyalty, and [[InsufferableGenius very unpleasant]] [[SmugSnake to be around]] to boot. His status is made very clear when after tasked to poison a banker, he decides to do so by poisoning ledgers- and in order to make sure he reaches his target, he decides to poison ''all of the ledgers'' in the bank, killing dozens of innocent people. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood He cannot understand why anyone on the team would have a problem with this]], [[JerkassHasAPoint especially given their overall lack of morality]].
* Lohan in [[Literature/ThePowerOfFive Oblivion]]. Scott to a minor extent too.
%% * [[spoiler: Ridley]] for a short time in ''[[Literature/TheCasterChronicles Beautiful Darkness]]''.
* Nomax from ''Literature/DragonsLexiconTriumvirate'', always seems to be the one who wants to kill things, and it's not a big surprise when he turns out to betray the rest of them.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Alias}}'': Sydney's mother, among others like Sark.
* ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'': More of a "token pragmatist", Tyr was both invaluable ''and'' tried to sell out the ship/crew at least once per episode. It helps that [[PlanetOfHats Nietzschian pragmatism]] can be used to justify ''any'' action. Even Beka Valentine, a Han Solo-esque rogue, had far more loyalty and backbone. But then, Tyr was himself inspired by Avon from ''Series/BlakesSeven''.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'':
** [[EldritchAbomination Illyria]], in season 5, hangs out with the main cast because she's been denied the power to TakeOverTheWorld, and isn't really sure what to do with herself otherwise. Occasionally she helps them out. Though she sometimes seems to be [[NobleDemon more closely aligned to the heroes than she claims]].
** Connor fits this in season 4, alongside being the TagalongKid, due to his unstable nature.
* ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'': Tom Zarek of the re-imagined show likes to portray himself as a [[VillainWithGoodPublicity staunch defender of the little guy]], who had to resort to extreme measures to try to empower his disenfranchised people, and yet ordered things like bombing convention centers, tried to have the president assassinated when there were less than 50,000 known survivors of humanity, ran an illegal black market which had previously included the exploitation of children, and had sold his position numerous times. While he does seem genuine in at least some of his outspokenness, the fact that he could be blackmailed with this information says something about his character. And then, well... let's say season 4 gets a lot more definite on the subject of his character.
* ''Series/BlakesSeven'': As referenced in the ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' example above, Avon might just be the prototypical sci-fi evil teammate: [[TallDarkAndSnarky snarky]], argumentative, cynical, and in favor of self-preservation over doing the right thing. He repeatedly claims that he’d sell out the rest of the crew in a heartbeat if it was to his benefit. It’s not clear how much of his attitude [[HiddenHeartOfGold is a bluff]], but he certainly is more… morally pragmatic than Blake is. Avon is a bit of an odd example because [[spoiler:after season two, he’s the ''protagonist''.]] In fact, the only thing that stops him from leaving the Liberator is the Liberator. [[spoiler: In the final episode of season 2, he tells Blake he's done with Blake's revolution and will only help if he is given Liberator. Blake agrees and Avon is content enough to follow Blake on what could easily be a suicide mission]].
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Spike has been nearly every level of this. He started on the road with the one time team up variety. When he got a [[RestrainingBolt chip]] put in his head to prevent him from hurting humans, he joined the Scoobies as the Token Evil Teammate, since killing demons was the only way he could get his kicks. This didn't stop him from working with Adam or being a general asshole - they only kept him around because he was occasionally useful and they didn't want to kill someone physically incapable of fighting back.
** Faith believes that her Slayer powers give her the right to steal and generally run amok (eventually leading to the accidental death of a person). She soon goes from Token Evil Teammate to straight villain and TheDragon for [[BigBad Mayor Wilkins]].
** Anya's pining for her lost vengeance demon powers and lack of sympathy for humans qualified her as an Evil Teammate to begin with. Soon enough, though, she was just as goody-goody as the rest of the group, just odd.
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': During his stay on the series, Cole Turner filled this role on a few occasions.
* ''Series/{{Community}}'': From time to time Pierce Hawthorne fills this role. Chang sometimes does too. For example, when Pierce endangered Annie's anti-drug play, it was Chang who saved it.
* ''Series/DansUneGalaxiePresDeChezVous'': Being an {{Expy}} of Dr Smith, Brad Spitfire from this French-Canadian science-fiction comedy fits this trope completely: cowardly, greedy, power-hungry, Nazi-loving and all-in-all hated by every other member, the only reason he hasn't been ThrownOutTheAirLock by now is because he is the only scientist on board, and his skills are greatly needed.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Snarky, cynical Turlough is like this to the affable and vulnerable Fifth Doctor after making a deal with the Black Guardian to assassinate the Doctor. He redeems himself in the end[[note]]after half a season of plotting[[/note]], but throughout his run as a companion he's just as liable to run away or betray the Doctor as he is to heroically rescue his friends, and even strangers.
** The Doctor himself started out as Token Evil Teammate, and the First Doctor's character arc is about him shifting from [[NeutralEvil Neutral Evil]] to [[ChaoticGood Chaotic Good]].
** The future Doctors seem to consider the War Doctor this in "The Day of the Doctor". After TheReveal [[spoiler:that he didn't actually destroy Gallifrey but helped save it, however due to TimeyWimeyBall he forgot it, he is forgiven. Just before that 10 and 11, after spending some time with him, admit he wasn't as bad as they thought.]]
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': Everyone is quite morally ambiguous--especially by the final season. However, in that season, '''[[spoiler:Scorpius]]''' definitely qualifies. Earlier on, there's Rygel, who constantly tries to sell out and undermine the rest of the team and unashamedly jumps on any opportunity for profit. Chiana plays this part in early appearances, first (implicitly) murdering her custodian and then torching the captain of the Gammak base to a crisp.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': Jayne is very much this for the main characters. He always points out when they're about to do something [[HonorBeforeReason more honorable than profitable]] and was a prime example of RecruitingTheCriminal... well, enemy criminal. He's OnlyInItForTheMoney, and is probably the staunchest proponent for getting rid of the Tams, though the one time he tried to do so in "Ariel", he got betrayed by the guy he worked with and almost got ThrownOutTheAirlock for it by a furious Mal. Also, in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'', after River gets triggered and Mal still keeps her on the ship, Jayne tries to kill her in order to get the Alliance off their backs. However, Jayne definitely shows that he has good in him. Whether it be his shame of betraying Simon and River after Mal was about to throw him out of the airlock (it wasn't just fear but legitimate shame), or him eventually advocating in favor of doing the right thing near the end of ''Film/{{Serenity}}''.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': Santana has increasingly become this in the second season. Quinn can flip in and out of this role.
* ''Series/GossipGirl'': Chuck Bass is the Token Evil Teammate of the Non-Judging Breakfast Club. True he's [[ThePowerOfLove mellowed]], but a guy who's attempted to rape another team member definitely counts as evil.
* ''Series/{{House}}'': Oddly enough, this show features its ''main character'' Dr. Gregory House as one of these. Whatever his actual moral alignment may be, he's a brilliant diagnostician, but his demeanor is that of a snarky jerkass with an addiction to painkillers, and he's made it quite clear that solving complicated medical mysteries is pretty much just a fun game for him. Failing to save a patient's life is usually more of a blow to his ego than a source of sorrow.
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': Has Barney Stinson, the embodiment of this trope. A [[strike:LadykillerInLove]] TheCasanova to the extreme who works for MegaCorp, which is implied to have all sorts of really evil things going on with North Korea and even somehow contaminating the drinking water in Lisbon for some reason? Yeah, pretty evil. The other characters [[LampshadeHanging occasionally wonder why they even hang out with Barney]] when he's being exceptionally assholish. The reason, of course, is that he's like family to them, and no matter how horrible he acts, they can't bear to abandon him, as Ted realized in season 3, and Marshall in season 6.
* ''Series/HumanTarget'': Guerrero. He is intensely loyal to Chance, but that seems to be about it as far as morals go. Threats, torture, murder? Check, check and check. He doesn't look like much, but his name is enough to cause an experienced thief to wet her panties.
* ''Series/ICarly'': Sam. If the plot requires anything that isn't lawful, Sam will suggest it and carry it out.
* The gang from ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' is full of {{Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist}}s (the [[TokenGoodTeammate least awful one]] being an insane StalkerWithACrush). But Dennis takes the cake. The man has shown [[TheSociopath symptoms of sociopathy]] and some screwed views on consent though he's only implied to be a rapist. He's also implied to be a SerialKiller too. The rest of gang, while obnoxious {{schemer}}s, haven't killed or raped anyone. Well, except for the SerialKiller who had a [[SlashersPreferBlondes twisted]] thing for [[EveryoneLovesBlondes blondes]].
* ''Series/JosieAndThePussycats'': Alexandra is definitely this, only tagging along with the group because her brother Alexander manages the band. Every episode usually features her either trying to steal Alan away from Josie or sabotage the band in some way.
* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': Cara might qualify as this after her HeelFaceTurn. Although she's extremely loyal to Richard and eventually admits, albeit begrudgingly, that she cares a lot about her teammates, she seems to really enjoy killing and torture, and finds the other characters' displays of love and affection nauseating.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'': [[MagnificentBastard Ben]] fits this trope in the sixth season. He's still a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative sociopath]], but this time he's on the losties side. Also, Sawyer pretty much filled this role in the first season, or at least he was the token JerkAss.
* ''Series/LostInSpace'': Dr. Smith. While not outright evil, he's propelled largely by self-interest and tends to have such [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter poor judgment]] [[JustEatGilligan it can become a real liability]]. The aborted movie franchise did make Smith substantially more malevolent and intelligent. However, this is really a case of VillainDecay. Early episodes showed him to be much more malevolent and the show itself was much more serious. It quickly devolved into slapstick. Also, in the earlier episodes Smith's unquestionably necessary skills as a doctor prevented the Robinsons from simply flushing him out the airlock, whereas in the later episodes he contributes nothing to the team and all he ever does is get in the way with his self-serving schemes.
* ''Series/{{Luther}}'': Has Alice Morgan, at least after the finale of the first series. Even though Luther's a policeman and she's an unrepentant murderer and [[TheSociopath sociopath]], the two have an understanding and friendship of sorts and are perfectly willing to help each other with their various problems.
* ''Series/{{MASH}}'': Major Charles Winchester. He's not above trying to get something out of his forced residence at the 4077th (especially if it's at the expense of his tent mates), but he does do his best to take care of the patients. Turns into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold later in the series. Also, [[JerkAss Major Frank Burns]] (for whom Winchester was the SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute) is a better fit for this trope, given that he actually tried to get Hawkeye ''killed'' at least once (a depth to which Charles would never stoop).
* ''Series/{{Misfits}}'': Nathan isn't quite ''evil'', but he's a bullying, self-obsessed, [[SociopathicHero borderline-sociopathic]] SmallNameBigEgo of epic proportions, who is regularly suggested to have some kind of undiagnosed mental illness.
--> "[[AssholeVictim This is why]] [[GoodThingYouCanHeal people kill you.]]"
* ''Series/OnceUponATime''. Regina and Rumpelstiltskin in Season 2. Lampshaded in Season 3 by Emma, who calls Regina a villain but still one that is needed to rescue Henry from Neverland.
* ''Series/PersonOfInterest'': Shaw as of season 3. She tends to argue the merits of just killing the perps rather than going to the trouble of aiming for non-lethal takedowns and prefers spending time with Bear to the rest of the team. [[spoiler: Root also becomes this somewhat as she is working as an agent of The Machine and will do almost anything it tells her]].
* ''Series/PrisonBreak'': T-Bag.
* ''Series/{{Revolution}}'': While not evil per se, Miles certainly is a {{Jerkass}} and an AntiHero. [[spoiler: Major Tom Neville]] is a straight example as of [[Recap/RevolutionS1E16TheLoveBoat episode 16]]. The good news is that he wants to take down Monroe. The bad news is that as his son stated, he doesn't care whose side he's on, as long as people kiss his butt. [[spoiler: [[Recap/RevolutionS1E19ChildrenOfMen Episode 19]] and the [[Recap/RevolutionS1E20TheDarkTower first season finale]] has Tom Neville successfully take over the Monroe militia, while his son Jason doesn't have a clue as to what he should do about this]].
* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'': Reprogrammed Terminators like Cameron, Weaver and those employed by the Resistance fit this category to a T. Cold, logical, unstoppable and brutally pragmatic (Cameron would kill anyone she even ''suspects'' of being a threat, and Weaver slaughtered an entire warehouse of people for working for Skynet when John Henry intercepts an unsecure communication) -- be glad they're on our side. Of course, "Sometimes they go bad. No-one knows why."
* ''Series/TheSecretCircle'': Faye from is a SubvertedTrope: she has all the surface traits, but doesn't want to hurt anyone and is scared of losing control of her powers. Jake, on the other hand....
* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': Todd the Wraith occasionally allies with Atlantis versus Replicators, Genii, other Wraith clans, etc.
* ''Series/StargateUniverse'': Dr. Rush is the only person smart enough to help out his crew mates most of the time. Which he stranded them on in the first place. He also is arrogant, doesn't particularly care about what happens to anyone else on the ship and is ''insanely'' dedicated to carrying out ''Destiny's'' mission.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Gul Dukat works with the crew of Deep Space Nine and forms a mutual trust with Sisko to eliminate a greater evil far more often than Sisko should trust him. At some point in the series, the two become mortal enemies.
** Garak also qualifies, given his penchant for lying, previous job as a spy/torturer, and "ends justify the means" attitude. He had no qualms about committing extortion, blackmail, and murder to convince the Romulans to join the Dominion War, and when someone doesn't believe he'd shoot a man [[InTheBack in the back]], his reply is simply, "[[CombatPragmatist It's the safest way, isn't it?]]" Despite all this, he's almost always on the side of our heroes.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Dances around this a lot. Season 3 gave us [[ManipulativeBastard Bela]], who while pretty evil wasn't exactly a team player, and [[NobleDemon Ruby]], who turned out to actually be TheMole. Finally, however, season 5 gave us [[TheChessmaster Crowley]], who, while still perfectly willing to kill innocent people and send souls to hell, proved to be a valuable member of Team Free Will.
* ''Series/{{Survivors}}'': Tom Price in the 2008 remake of this BBC drama, only his position as the Big Guy of The Family has kept the other survivors from killing or permanently banishing him, and even then, only barely.
* ''Series/TheThundermans'': Max, Phoebe's [[EvilTwin evil fraternal twin]], is in a family of superheroes but aspires to be a supervillain.
* ''Series/{{V 2009}}'': Hobbes is a mercenary wanted by the FBI who is forced to join the Fifth Column after the Visitors frame him for a crime he didn't commit... which is not to say that he hasn't also committed other crimes which were just as bad or worse.
* In the ''[[Series/{{V}} V: the Final Battle]]'' mini-series from the 80's, Michael Ironside portrays merc Ham Tyler, whose was initially distrusted by the Resistance as being a warmonger.
* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'': Damon, in the beginning. He's not even LIKED by most of the team, and the main reasons they keep him around are that he's Stefan's brother, it means they know where he is and he'll lend a hand if it serves his purposes. In Season One, they just had to deal with having him around because he was too strong to fight. In Season Two he's more of a team player, but maybe that's because Bonnie has proven that she could (and almost DID) kill him if angry enough with him. Also, Elijah joins them in Season 2 despite being rather antagonistic earlier in the season.
* ''Series/TheWalkingDead'': Shane Walsh in Season 2 and Merle Dixon (when he's with his brother's group) in Season 3. Merle makes a [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn at the last second and goes out like a hero]], while Shane [[spoiler:succumbs to his villainy, tries to kill Rick, and is stabbed by his former best friend as a result.]]
** Merle in particular recognizes what it means to be this trope: [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork "Maybe these people need someone like me around to do their dirty work. The bad guy."]]
* ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'': [[GenderFlip H.G. Wells]] goes from pure villain to a member of the team. Artie is certain she'll betray them at any moment. And as it stands [[spoiler: he was right. She eventually betrays the group to wield one of the most powerful and destructive artifacts there is that nearly causes a mass earthquake capable of wiping out all life on earth after (in her eyes) seeing the future world decay so horribly over the years from her time.]]
* ''Series/WhiteCollar'': Similar to ''House'', the main character (or one of them) is more or less this: Neal Caffrey is a BoxedCrook working with the [[FBIAgent FBI]] in exchange for not being in prison. Subverted inasmuch as Neal shows signs of reform--to say nothing of the fact that, as a good-natured forger and con artist, Caffrey wasn't terribly evil to start with. He is also extremely unwilling to use violence, which is a major factor in what makes him redeemable.
* ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'': She's the main protagonist, namely Alex.
* ''YoungDracula'': Ingrid is this whenever she helps Vlad, which isn't often.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* In ''Literature/TheBible'', Joab son of Zeruiah acts this way for David, ostensibly commander of David's army but doing evil things like disobeying David to kill David's son Absalom (who'd just staged a failed coup) and his intended replacement Amasa. Unlike many examples of the type, he does get killed for it once he outlives his usefulness (and supports a rival of the legitimate heir to the throne).
** In some interpretations, Judas followed Jesus more out of personal ambition than true belief, and he sold Jesus out when things weren't quite going like he expected.
* Loki seems to fill this role for the Norse Gods sometimes. Not that the rest of them are really paragons of virtue.
** In a lot of cases they were asking for it, really.

[[folder:Podcasts]]
* The ''Jade Regent'' Campaign from Podcast/{{RPGMP3}} features a character called Skygni, who's a [[UpliftedAnimal magically Awakened]] [[KillItWithIce frost]]-[[BreathWeapon breathing]] [[AnIcePerson Winter]] [[SavageWolves Wolf]]. He swore a [[MagicallyBindingContract Blood Oath]] (under duress) to [[TokenEvilTeammate not eat people]]. Well, at least not the ones travelling with the heroes' caravan, anyway.

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* ''Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}} King of Trios 2010'', Night I, April 23, 2010 was supposed to have featured a match between Team Mexico (Skayde[=/=][=Turbo=][=/=]El Valiente) and the BDK team of Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli, Ares and Tursas. Team Mexico didn't appear due to El Valiente getting double booked and wrestling on the Wrestling/{{CMLL}} show instead. Skayde apparently tried to hold up CHIKARA for more money, leading to the company cutting all ties with him. Names were drawn out of a hat for a replacement team. The first names were [[Characters/WWETagTeams Well Dunn]], but, sadly, Steve Dunn had passed away a year earlier. Then they drew [[Wrestling/TitoSantana Strike]] [[Wrestling/RickMartel Force]], who were not there. Then they drew CHIKARA regulars the Osirian Portal (Amasis and Ophidian), who, of course, were there and came out to the cheers of the crowd. Then Wrestling/SaraDelRey's name was drawn, meaning the Portal was teamed with a BDK member against three BDK members. During the match, Sara broke up the Ophidian Death Grip on Claudio by [[GroinAttack kicking Ophidian low]]. [[LoopholeAbuse She couldn't be DQ'd because it was her own partner]]. The BDK won, of course, with Ophidian taking the Ragnarok for the pin.
* Among the {{technico}}s regularly fighting said BDK group in Chikara was Wrestling/EddieKingston, who was really still a {{rudo}}, but one who prioritized taking down BDK over anything else, meaning he wasn't paired with other rudos during this time and had no designs on betraying the technicos.

* A Token Evil Teammate is a common occurrence in any group of players, [[OpenRoleplayingDecay regardless of system or original intent of the campaign]]. This is frequently a cause of friction inside the group, and certainly the cause of much interesting character development and actual role-playing. Why is the lawful good paladin working with Nazis? Let's find out!
** Often goes too far and gives you [[TokenGoodTeammate one Token Good Player instead.]]
* In the original ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' adventure ''The Keep on the Borderlands'', there are opportunities for {{NPC}}s to join the party, and some of them are of evil alignment.
** In the same vein, ''TabletopGame/TempleOfElementalEvil'' (or at least Troika's [[VideoGame/TempleOfElementalEvil computer adaptation]]) features many joinables, the majority of them are evil aligned (a few good joinables and several neutrals exist though).
** In the original AD&D, the Assassin is the most likely candidate for this role, as the class in question requires an evil alignment.
* Black Robe Wizards can fill this role in a ''{{Dragonlance}}'' game.
* Seltyiel, the LawfulEvil half-elven [[MagicKnight Eldritch Knight]] / [[{{Retcon}} magus]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', who's canonically the [[KnightInShiningArmor paladin's]] pet project.
* The Scorpion Clan is this to the entire [[LegendOfTheFiveRings Emerald Empire]]. They lie, they cheat, they steal, they murder and they blackmail. [[IDidWhatIHadToDo All in the name of Loyalty and Duty.]] This is their job, to be the Underhand and do the [[PragmaticVillainy dirty but necessary things]] that the other Clans will not.
* Among the sample characters given in {{GURPS}} 4th Edition, Baron Janos Telkozep seems to be one. He's a vampire who's backstory is that he's working for the good guys for purely selfish reasons, and close inspection of his character sheet suggests he's ''not'' a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire but rather a murderous, greedy bastard. Oh, and he's named after a god with two faces.
* The Space Marines of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have two worthy nominations: the [[TheBerserker murderously psychotic]] Flesh Tearers and the [[SmugSuper hyper-arrogant and haughty]] Marines Malevolent. They're loyal to the Imperium of Man, but several of their actions are so brutal and immoral that you wonder sometimes why they haven't been declared Excommunicate Traitoris by the Inquisition.
** Speak of the devil. The Inquisition fill in this role for the Imperium as a faction. No-one in the Imperium is squeaky-clean apart from maybe some of the more rational and casualty-conscious Imperial Guard and [=PDF=] regiments, but if you have an Imperium character who opposes the protagonists or [[WhatTheHellHero becomes too extreme]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards even for them]], chances are very, very, ''very'' high that it will be an Inquisitor.
** In the 5E Imperial Guard codex, every special character is either AFatherToHisMen or a SergeantRock. And then there's Commander Kubrick Chenkov, who's only real "tactic" could be summed up as WeHaveReserves. His past atrocities include ordering his men to march into minefields to clear them for the tanks, sending them in hand-to-hand combat against the enemy to tie them up and then wipe them both out with artillery, and executing ''a million of his own men to build a bridge with their bodies''. And if you show a hint of hesitation, he'll see it as cowardice and shoot you. [[KarmaHoudini Not only does he continue to survive despite leading from the front, but he is also repeatedly showered in commendations and rewards for his brutal tactics because they bring results]].
* Of the Icons of ''[[TabletopGame/ThirteenthAge 13th Age]]'', the Crusader is the only major genuinely evil NPC to be considered a full part of the sort of heroic Dragon Empire, because even though he's listed as "the fist of the Dark Gods" in multiple places, he's at least ''kind of'' loyal to the Emperor and spends most of his time fighting demons rather than anyone else. To a lesser extent, the Three may qualify, because while they're malevolent chromatic dragons, they're still technically part of the Empire due to a past scheme of the Blue. Of the other evil Icons, the Lich King, the Diabolist, and the Orc Lord are much closer to being part of the problem than the solution.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Nisha in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel''. While [[ButtMonkey Claptrap]], [[ActionSurvivor Timothy]] and [[TokenGoodTeammate Athena]] are largely moral, Wilhelm is [[OnlyInItForTheMoney purely mercenary and detached]] and Aurelia has [[EvenEvilHasStandards some standards]], Nisha just plain likes killing stuff.
** ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' features DLC character Krieg, an escaped Hyperion test subject transformed into a mutant Badass Psycho, with all the power and insanity that implies. Salvador is up there as well, though he's not as insane and mostly in it for the guns.
* Canderous in both ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' games; he's something of a ProudWarriorRaceGuy. There's also HK-47, who is a KillerRobot. It's not the fact that his standard greeting in ''[=KotOR 2=]'' is "Is there someone you want killed, master?", it's how viscerally he enjoys it...
** Kreia in ''[=KotOR 2=]'' if the player character is light-sided, as she believes in balance above all else, and so gives "evil" advice when players do good things.
** There are others who start out evil, and can be redeemed, in KOTOR II - G0-T0 comes to mind.
* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'': The Jedi Knight has Lord Scourge as one of their companions, he is a Sith Lord who is happens to be the Sith Emperor's personal bodyguard. He sides with the Jedi because he saw that they would be the one who will defeat the emperor. It should be noted that in the past he aided Revan and the Exile in taking down the Emperor, but betrayed them when he had a vision that they would fail, and the Jedi Knight would be the one who will kill the Emperor.
** Other examples in the game are Consular companion Zenith (a not-quite-former [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters terrorist]] who will approve of any action that hits the Empire, and too bad if there are hundreds of civilian casualties in the crossfire), Trooper companion Tanno Vik, who is TradingBarsForStripes, and Theron Shan from the Shadow of Revan arc (who almost always advocates for the Republic flavor of Dark Side - like killing Rakata soldiers asleep in kolto tanks or sniping Imperial ships in the chaos during a fight with the Revanites).
** Even Imperial classes have characters that come off as extra cruel or brutal compared to others. The Imperial Agent and Bounty Hunter has Kaliyo Djannis and Skadge, who are [[PsychoForHire Psychos For Hire]] that largely approve of violence and cruelty. Most notably, Kaliyo is the first companion of the Agent and will be around for quite a while before they get their second companion.
* E-123 Omega from ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles''.
** Dr. Eggman in ''Sonic Chronicles'' as well.
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' provided Grimgnaw, a LawfulEvil monk with the creepy turned UpToEleven.
** [[spoiler:Aribeth de Tylmarande]] in ''Hordes of the Underdark'' is a {{Fallen|Hero}} [[ThePaladin Paladin]] [[spoiler:who ended up as TheDragon in the first campaign]]. You can either make her the Token Evil Teammate, or convince her to [[TheAtoner seek her god's forgiveness]], in which case she regains LawfulGood alignment.
** Nathyrra from the same campaign [[AvertedTrope is]] ''[[AvertedTrope not]]'' [[AvertedTrope an example]]. She is listed as LawfulEvil purely because of game mechanics on the Assassin PrestigeClass and acts completely LawfulGood.
** ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'' has Bishop, a SocialDarwinist ranger; Ammon Jerro, a warlock who is determined to defeat the BigBad by ''any'' means necessary, including murder and consorting with fiends; and Qara, a {{sociopathic|Hero}} sorceress who has no qualms about "solving" problems by [[KillItWithFire blasting everything in sight]] (and does not react well to people trying to prove that it doesn't solve ''anything'').
** One-of-Many, an undead HiveMind, could ''possibly'' be this in the expansion ''Mask of the Betrayer'', but this would largely be averted (provided the player doesn't choose to make a sudden HeelFaceTurn) by the fact that the PC would have to make a consciously evil choice to get him/it/them/? instead of Okku (the corresponding good character).
** Leaving aside the fact that ''Storm of Zehir'' lets you hand-craft your own party, T.E.T. and all if you so desire, among the cohorts are the deep gnome wizard Chir Darkflame (ChaoticEvil), the [[StereotypeFlip aasimar Shadow Thief]] Belueth the Calm (NeutralEvil), and the half-drow warlock Quarrel (ChaoticEvil).
* Bowser in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG''.
** And ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario''.
** Although [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain he can hardly be called "Evil"]] in either of those games.
** Lady Bow in ''Paper Mario''. Her subjects picked on Tubba before and after the events of her chapter.
* Gig in ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters''. Except, obviously, in the Demon Path, where everyone is evil.
* Nix in ''VideoGame/{{inFAMOUS 2}}''.
** Nix is more of an Anti-Villain. While she is willing to kill [[spoiler: it is more due to her traumatic experience and wanting to get revenge. After the plot twist, she is willing to sacrifice her life to stop the Beast who will destroy everything, compared to her counterpart Lucy, who joins with the Beast to save herself.]]
** Not really noble goals [[spoiler: fighting the Beast. When you fight her in the Evil ending she basically says that she's only fighting the Beast because of desire for vengeance and because she doesn't want to be part of a crowd of Conduits.]]
* The Silencer, of the ''VideoGame/{{Crusader}}'' series. An unusual example, given that he is the ''player character''.
* Warlocks and Death Knights seem to serve this role in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. Warlocks fit the role very loosely, since they indeed horribly kill their enemies and steal their souls, but their class quest chain is dedicated to resisting the Burning Legion's influence and not succumbing to evil.
** As well as many Forsaken characters, who are not saints.
** And Death Knights feed by the very act of killing, which is perfectly suited to the role of adventurer..and thus not really fitting the trope very well. All of what made the DK class "evil" was because they were compelled to do Arthas' will, which disappears after the Knights of the Ebon Blade rebel.
*** On the other hand, many of the Knights of the Ebon Blade take questionable approaches to fighting the Scourge, from being willing to fire even while risking hitting web-wrapped "human shields" to destroying the soul of an enemy commander.
** In ''Wrath of the Lich King'', Malygos, leader of the [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Blue Dragonflight]], has gone insane and is leading his dragonflight in an attempt to destroy the world due to what he sees as overuse and misuse of magic by mortals. The Wyrmrest Accord is an alliance of the other four dragonflights of Azeroth against the blues. The black dragonflight is part of the alliance. The leader of the black dragonflight also wants to destroy the world, in his case because he was corrupted by {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, and in fact he would try to in the very next expansion, but he wasn't around during the events of ''Wrath of the Lich King''. So the blacks, while evil in general, weren't making a concerted effort to blow things up when the blues were.
* Korgan Bloodaxe in ''VideoGame/BaldursGate 2''. His Chaotic Evilness is to the point where some people LEAVE YOUR PARTY if the right dialogue goes down. He is also immensely badass -- just look at his name.
** To be specific, Korgan will chase Aerie out of the party by verbally abusing her. If you're playing the expansion, however, Aerie instead starts verbally insulting him right back -- at which point Korgan reveals it was a SecretTestOfCharacter to see if she was able to stand up for herself or not -- and now that she's proven that she does, he no longer has a problem with her.
** The ''Baldur's Gate'' series is pretty rich in villainous [=PCs=]. In ''Throne of Bhaal'', this extends all the way up to bringing the villain of the first game BackFromTheDead as a recruitable party member!
** We also have Edwin, snarky GenderBender wizard who talks to himself frequently about fireballing the party as they sleep. He also hated Dynaheir, [[BoisterousBruiser Minsc's]] partner in ''[=BG1=]''; in ''[=BG2=]'' she's dead, and he mocks Minsc about it, showing zero sympathy. He seems to be driven by ambition and thinks the PC is a quick route to power - and despite mutinous mutterings, Edwin is one of the most loyal {{NPC}}s in the game, and it is perfectly possible to go through the game with a Good party, high Reputation, good deeds left and right, and all Edwin will do is some amusing snarking about it.
** And, of course, Viconia the NeutralEvil drow [[spoiler:[[LoveRedeems unless you're romancing her in TOB]], which sends her to TrueNeutral]].
* Etna in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}''. Though not in [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness the first one]] simply on the basis that [[VillainProtagonist you don't play the good guy]].
* Magus in ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' is more the Token Anti-Hero once you get to know him, since DarkIsNotEvil, but his priorities and goals don't really align with the party's besides "kill Lavos".
* Ignus in ''PlanescapeTorment''; he is technically Chaotic Neutral, but he's an AxCrazy {{Pyromaniac}}. The main character could become this as well, depending on how you play.
* Myron from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'', who's evil extends to potentially drugging and raping a female PC with a very low intelligence score. He is intended, to all appearances, to be a character that nobody will ''like'' (being annoying, beyond the MoralEventHorizon, AND bad in combat), and which everyone will only use for his abilities. He's easy to keep in line just with threats, since he's so pathetically weak in every way. Even if you let him live, he gets murdered in some back alley in the epilogue, regardless of your actions. Even the ''writers'' couldn't stand him.
** Jericho from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' was formerly part of the Raiders, who are notorious murderers, rapists, sadists and possibly cannibals. Though he nominally works as a part-time protector for the settlement of Megaton, he usually ends up getting drunk off his ass and reputedly attempted to rape one of the local residents. A player with bad karma (and 1000 caps) can convince him to come out of retirement and become a companion.
* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'':
** The Omertas are this for the Three Families on the Strip. The Chairmen and the White Glove Society have their good and bad members, but every Omerta you meet is a vile bastard.
** Orion Moreno of the Enclave Remnants. The others were basically good people who joined the Enclave to bring order to the Wasteland and regularly subverted their more vile orders (and one of them outright quit the organization even before its defeat by the NCR), but Moreno is a bloodthirsty true believer in the Enclave's fascist ideology who's not a bit sorry for the innocent people he killed.
** Joshua Graham was originally supposed to be one of these in ''VideoGame/FalloutVanBuren'', where he was known as The Hanged Man. However, due to the fact that J.E. Sawyer decided that this did not make for an interesting character, Graham appears in ''New Vegas'' as a deeply conflicted yet incredibly brutal [[TheAtoner Atoner]]. Also, Ulysses was originally meant to be a Legion-affiliated companion (and in the game was a former Legion spy/scout) but was cut from the game proper, though he becomes the central figure of the ''Lonesome Road'' DLC.
** In DLC ''Dead Money'', Dean Domino plays this role, being practically responsible for everything that went wrong with the Sierra Madre due to being jealous of the creator. If the player gets on his bad side, he will try to kill you off near the end.
** Colonel Cassandra Moore is this to the NCR. While most of the NCR higher ups are {{Reasonable Authority Figure}}s (Hsu, Crocker) or at the very least flawed antiheroes (Hanlon, Oliver, Kimball), Moore is an outright sociopath and sadist who gleefully advocates mass murder, constantly insults and belittles the Courier (especially if they solve her missions peacefully), ''fires'' Ambassador Crocker in a blatant overstepping of her authority simply because he helped solved the crisis with the Kings peacefully instead of committing genocide on them, and in general comes across as a psychotic, bloodthirsty warmonger. Even [[WordOfGod Josh Sawyer]] considers her scum, changing her karma from Neutral to Evil in his unofficial patch.
* Ceville from the game ''VideoGame/{{Ceville}}'' is one. He, in fact, is the disposed former tyrant of the kingdom - your first act while playing as him is sending the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf into slave labor and stealing all their possessions. He never really changes his personality or attitude during the entire game. The only real reason he tolerates Lilly is because she's useful in his quest to get revenge and (sorta) take back his kingdom. Despite being a stereotypical evil tyrant though, Ceville shows quite the amount of intelligence and foresight; he's well aware that he can't just kill, say, his favourite cook if he wants food later and dwarven exploitation of the elves and the forests is bad (if only because they're greedier than he). Of course, once he comes to see how greedy and evil the senators can be, he starts to get appreciative of the new 'democracy' in his former kingdom. Paraphrasing his words, they're just as bad and decadent as he was, they just can hide it better.
* Reaver in ''VideoGame/FableII'': he's arguably more evil than the game's main villain, being not just a mass murderer but cold-blooded and sociopathic. The only thing that keeps him from being a far greater threat to the world is his lack of ambition and scope.
** He shows up again in ''VideoGame/FableIII'', this time as a ruthless captain of industry who exploits, abuses, murders, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking ridicules]] his employees to no end. And alas, you are forced into an alliance with him, and at the end of the game [[KarmaHoudini he once again walks away virtually unscathed from the events]].
* [[spoiler:Joshua]] of ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou''. [[spoiler:He starts as the protagonist's partner and foil in the second level of the game, fakes a HeroicSacrifice, and ends up as the BigBad and the ManBehindTheMan in TheReveal. Not bad for a smarmy git.]]
* FireEmblem: Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn has a few. First is Izuka, the MadScientist from PoR who ends up with Daein again in RD, who utilizes deplorable tactics for the cause, though [[spoiler: he was serving two other causes at the time, [[GambitPileup all three of which sought very different ends]].]] Second is Soren, who really seems indifferent to everything other than [[GayOption Ike]], and is more suspicious of others' motives than his teammates. Finally Shinon, an unabashed racist who never repents even given the somewhat {{Anvilicious}} race-based events in the game.
** Lifis from [[FireEmblemJugdral ''Thracia 776'']]. Every other recruitable Thief in the series is either a GentlemanThief or LoveableRogue, but it's clear Lifis is still an unrepentant slimeball. Saphy believe he's done a genuine HeelFaceTurn, but you later find out he only joined so he could turn [[TheHero Leif]] over to TheEmpire for a reward. [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty After he gets his hands on Saphy, that is.]] Thankfully he's on the recieving end of a KickTheSonOfABitch from Pahn later on. (Whose incidently a [[JustLikeRobinHood much more likable]] thief)
** In stark contrast to [[DarkIsNotEvil their usual depiction in the series]], the two Dark Mages in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' both fit this trope. Tharja is a PunchClockHero who's openly {{Yandere}} for the PlayerCharacter and loves practicing curses and hexes on her own allies [[spoiler: and even ''[[AbusiveParent her own daughter]]'' in the BadFuture timeline.]] Meanwhile Henry is a crazy BloodKnight who always remains [[{{Keet}} creepily cheerful]] even while brutally murdering his enemies. Interestingly the Japanese version game him a FreudianExcuse and CharacterDevelopment that made him much more sympathetic, but the English version removed this. Both certainly fit the "PlayedForLaughs as HeroicComedicSociopath" aspect of this trope though.
* Anyone with the [[FantasticRacism Darcsen Hater]] potential in ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles''. Cezary is a DirtyCoward who only became a sniper to stay off the front lines, besides being a complete Jerkass. (even to the player) And then there's Theold Bohr, a MightMakesRight, SocialDarwinist, [[TheBully bully]] and utterly unrepentant Jerkass who calls Darcsens [[MoralEventHorizon heretics]]. Rosina isn't quite as bad as the other two (she only dislikes Darcsens because they tend to be skinny, and she [[MrFanservice has a thing for macho men]]) but she can still be a jerk sometimes. Given the [[VideogameCaringPotential nature]] of the game, most players don't even touch them.
* Morrigan in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is the daughter of the infamous Witch of the Wilds, Flemeth, and while she claims to be an ultra-pragmatic survivalist, most of her actions show her to be rather cruel, [[MemeticMutation disapproving]] of virtually anything you do that isn't sadistic and cruel. Oh, and you later learn that the only reason she joined you was so [[spoiler:she could birth a child with the soul of an [[EldritchAbomination Old God]].]] Of course, she ''does'' have [[EvenEvilHasStandards standards]]... just not many.
** There's also Zevran, an assassin who initially opposes the party, but can eventually be convinced to join you. Even if he does, he never quite drops his "evil assassin" nature. [[spoiler:Unless the PC manages to gain his approval and convinces him to turn against his old assassin's guild in the endgame, in which he becomes a bit HeroicNeutral.]]
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' is set in a CrapsackWorld with GrayAndGreyMorality, but a couple stand out. [[spoiler: Isabela, a pirate who stole the qunari's most sacred relic and is willing to let the qunari go to war with Kirkwall to save her own skin (unless you convince her to pull a ChangedMyMindKid). Anders is a WellIntentionedExtremist mage possessed by a spirit of Justice whose inability to deal with human emotions is steadily turning it into Vengeance. At the end of the game, he commits a terrorist attack to spark mage revolution - you can kill him, tell him to go or let him rejoin you.]] Of course, the rest of your teammates have their own flaws (particularly [[spoiler: Sebastian, who vows to recruit an army and raze Kirkwall to the ground if you spare Anders after the Chantry attack]]). This is perhaps the biggest DysfunctionJunction in Bioware history.
** Played with in [[CloudCuckooLander Merrill's]] case, as despite being a [[BloodMagic Blood Mage]] who sought out a Demon to help her rebuild an Eluvian, Merrill frequently comes across as one of the [[DarkIsNotEvil kindest]], most friendly members of the entire party;
--> '''Hawke''': Merrill couldn't hurt you if she tried. At worst, she might make frowny faces.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' gives you the [[AxCrazy psychotic]] former lab rat Jack, the [[PsychoForHire revenge-obsessed mercenary]] Zaeed, and [[spoiler:the asari [[HornyDevil sex demon]] Morinth]] (who you can only recruit if your Shepard agrees to kill another teammate instead). The ''Mass Effect 2'' squad is quite far from the "heroic" side of the scale, when you consider that [[ProfessionalKiller Thane Krios]], an ''assassin'', is one of the ''most'' moral characters in Shepard's team.
** Jack and Zaeed, while they don't end up being fully redeemed (at least until ''3'' [[CharacterDevelopment for Jack]]), can at least be convinced to see things in a Paragon fashion, Jack by helping her deal with her past and convincing her that you're not merely out to just use her and Zaeed by [[spoiler:punching him in the face and threatening, at gunpoint, to let him burn in a factory like he would have done to innocent hostages]]. [[spoiler:Morinth]], on the other hand, is a monstrous character who has no intention of ever changing and enjoys [[SerialKiller what she does]].
** ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' has Javik, though he's not so much evil as he is just brutally pragmatic and ruthless in dealing with the Reapers. He also has zero tolerance for synthetic lifeforms and believes that they have no right to exist.
** Then there's [[TheDon Aria T'Loak]]. Sidequests she give you during the main course of the game implying [[spoiler: assassination of head of one crime group to promote Aria's marionette or [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure turian general]], who stops the other groups from plundering the weapon deliveries (which can be avoided), or releasing the AxCrazy head of the third group from C-Sec (which can be avoided as well, by provoking her vice [[TheStarscream to kill her to take her place]])]]. Then she becomes an actual teammate for the ''Omega'' DLC, where she [[spoiler: ruthlessly forces Shepard to kill hundreds of Omega civillians just for her to survive (which she does anyway), and then murders the surrendered Cerberus general, if not stopped.]]
** In a sense the Batarian Hegemony is this to the other Citadel races. They're the only member nation with a garden-variety dictatorship for a government and which still practices slavery. They're considered a rogue state, but not to the extent of the Terminus Systems which are just a loose conglomeration of feuding fiefdoms.
* ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'' has Nakula, an AxCrazy killer who makes absolutely no attempt to hide the fact that he wants to murder one of your other teammates.
** A little elaboration is needed. He's not "evil by design". Rather, he's just insanely pissed one of your other teammates murdered his father, and though he really wants said teammate to die (who even acknowledges he's right to be so angry), he's willing to be professional enough to put his grudge aside to aid you, even against his own people, mostly because they gave him up for dead.
* [[ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}} Green Goblin and Venom]] eventually join your group in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2]]'' after you [[spoiler:free them from being controlled by the Fold, a hive mind of nanite-possessed people]]. Judging from their dialogue with other characters, where they're total {{Jerkass}}es, they're not too happy about it. The partnership between them and the heroes is a strict EnemyMine to take down their common foe.
* A lot of the hirable mercs in the ''VideoGame/JaggedAlliance'' games are either AxeCrazy, massive {{Jerkass}}es, or both. They'll ignore orders if they're busy trying to kill a baddy, annoy other team members so much that they quit, or (in some instances) murder teammates that they dislike between missions.
* As of the true ending for ''VideoGame/BlazBlue: Continuum Shift'', the main group of heroes have two of these in the cases of [[spoiler:Jin and Kokonoe. Though to be fair, they're not so much evil as "[[JerkAss total prick]]" and "amoral MadScientist", respectively. However, this might be subverted that Jin is put under tutelage of Jubei, one of the few unflappably good persons in the universe, meaning it's just a matter of time until he stops being a Token Evil Teammate. Kokonoe on the other hand is standing on the edge of the MoralEventHorizon and seems undeterred by that fact, too, so the only thing "good" about her right now is that she fights Terumi.]]
** [[spoiler:Speaking of Terumi, he was the Token Evil Teammate of the Six Heroes. He only allied with them out of nececity when he realized that the [[{{Orochi}} Monster of Mass Destruction]] that he had secretly created wasn't controlable, and since it was now indiscriminately destroying the world, as opposed to destroying it the way Terumi wanted it to be destroyed, it simply HAD to be put down. Also, one of the heroes, a witch named Nine, put him under a geas that he WILL have to obey her so he's steered to destroy his creation. When the monster finally had been killed, Nine managed to catch whiff of the fact that it had been Terumi who set it loose in the first place, so he simply HAD to kill her (that and he didn't take being mind-controlled that well)... Guess who of the two people mentioned in the above paragraph Nine was the mother of? I'll give you a hint: It wasn't Jin.]]
** Now that ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronoPhantasma'' is announced, it has been revealed that there's ANOTHER Token Evil Teammate amongst the Sector Seven... [[BloodKnight Azrael]]. At least [[spoiler:Kokonoe]] can be touted as a NominalHero. Azrael is already said to be a villain of the series, though he may be unrelated to whatever the main villains are planning.
* ''VideoGame/{{Okage}}'' has one (kind of) in the form of [[HarmlessVillain Stan]]. Evil King Stan believes himself, clearly, to be evil, and thus goes along with [[TheHero Ari]] to destroy the other Evil Kings and regain his power to do...evil things, apparently. [[spoiler: Ironically, a majority of the Evil Kings Ari defeats ends up joining their group.]]
* In ''VideoGame/FistOfTheNorthStarKensRage'', Jagi becomes this for the Hokuto side in Dream Mode, choosing to take his chances with his brothers after royally pissing off Thouzer. Jagi was one of the biggest monsters in the series, although for this one mode, his brutality has been toned down with some hilarious moments.
** This also extends to Raoh of the Hokuto Side, since by default, he's the ruthless BigBad, and even when he's a NobleDemon, he's still got the evil within him.
* Harold Berselius in ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'' is the Token Amoral Teammate, essentially doing everything for either her amusement, to get the chance to murder a goddess, or ForScience, including threatening to vivisect people and experimenting on them without consent. It must be pointed out she was a MadScientist for the ''good'' side of the Aether war, however.
* In ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'', amongst the multitudes of good heroes, one of the members you can get is ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'''s Heihachi Mishima, one of the chief antagonists of the series. Though to be fair, he's on the 'Thou' part on the EvilerThanThou deal against Devil Kazuya...
** ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' continues the tradition with [[spoiler:young Heihachi and [[DarkActionGirl Juri]] [[AxCrazy Han]] from ''Super VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'']].
* In the original translation of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', Gustav Margueriff seems to be this for the Death Corps. Aside from his Marquis-kidnapping shenanigans, which damaged the reputation of the Corps (just as the guy who was paying him off to do it intended), his [[AllThereInTheManual Brave Story biography]] had it that he was kicked out of a knightly order for his war crimes (i.e. rape and pillaging) before joining up with TheIdealist Wiegraf's forces. The new translation, however, completely inverts his background--the rest of the order was full of war criminals and Gustav [[DefectorFromDecadence left in disgust]], though this doesn't stop him from making life difficult in the present.
* [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Iori Yagami]] plays this for his official teams in ''KOF 2001'' and ''XI''.
** Iori becomes this any time he allies with Kyo and Chizuru to form the Three Sacred Treasures Team. They're all descended from the three clans (Kusanagi, Yasakani, and Yata) responsible for [[SealedEvilInACan sealing away]] {{Orochi}}, but the Yagami clan (formerly the Yasakani) [[DealWithTheDevil made a deal with Orochi]] [[DrivenByEnvy out of jealousy of the Kusanagi]]. In the present day, [[TheRival Iori hates Kyo with a passion]], but [[TeethClenchedTeamwork he's joined forces with Kyo]] on at least ''four'' occasions (''[='96=]'', ''[='97=]'', ''2003'', and ''XI'') because a) [[TeamMom Chizuru]] [[NoBadassToHisValet is somehow able to coax him into fighting for their cause]] and even act as ''[[PetTheDog less]]'' of {{jerk|ass}} than normal ([[TheHeart Shingo]] fulfills a similar role in ''XI'') and b) [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou no one gets to kill Kyo but him]]. As such, Iori's gradually progressed into NominalHero territory over the course of the series.
* In ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable: The Gears of Destiny'', everyone who had joined forces to fight the Unbreakable Darkness is doing it for good reasons, may it be to stop the EldritchAbomination from destroying everything, to fix the mistake they did for unsealing her in the first place, or because they're completely loyal to both their master and their newfound friends and would like to have fun times after beating the threat. Well, everyone that is, except for Lord Dearche, the EvilOverlord-like HumanoidAbomination who's only doing it because she plans to take the unlimited power of the Unbreakable Darkness and use it to kill all her non-Material allies so that no one would stand in her way as she begins a reign of darkness! She was slightly annoyed when her fellow Materials protested her plans since that would mean that she'd kill their new friends too. Damn minions straying from their original mission of bringing chaos to everything and becoming all nice behind her back...
* Margrid The Sly joins your party in ''GuildWars''. She's a member of the Corsairs, a ragtag group of bandits you've been fighting since level 1. It just so happens she can provide you with a quick escape from one mission, and she has no qualms with helping you as long as you can pay up. She ends up joining you permanently, though (she claims) it's more for money and treasure than the chance to be a hero.
* Dr. Nefarious in RatchetAndClankAll4One, especially in that he was the BigBad for two [[RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal previous]] [[RatchetAndClankACrackInTime games]].
* In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI'', the Templars are comprised of {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s who truly believe they are making the world a better place, no matter how nightmarish their methods are. However, this is not the case for their agent Majd Addin, the regent lord of Jerusalem. Majd Addin rountinely and personally conduct mass executions of his own people, not because they did anything wrong or because he believes it's the right thing to do, but [[ForTheEvulz because killing people is fun for him]] and [[AGodAmI it makes him feel like a god]].
* {{Magneto}} becomes this in ''VideoGame/MarvelAvengersAlliance''. He reluctantly joined forces with the Avengers as the Syndicate he used to side [[EvenEvilHasStandards committed one thing he wouldn't cross]]: reviving RedSkull.
** [[spoiler:Also, Magik in the same game, if you get her, in a weird way. When she join you, she could count as a normal heroine. However, as of Comicbook/AvengersVsXMen, Magik turned out to be EvilAllAlong, so she could've counted. However, for the game, her 'evilness' have been toned down a bit, subverting this trope.]]
* In ''[[{{Rosenkreuzstilette}} Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel]]'', [[spoiler:Eifer Skute was an interesting double subversion. While the Schwarzkreuz was already an antagonizing group to begin with, Eifer showed that she was even EVILER than the rest of the bunch when she not only betrayed Pamela, but also revealed that she murdered the pope, and that her true allegiance goes to none other than Iris]].
** [[spoiler:That doesn't stop her from being EasilyForgiven in Pamela's side story, however.]]
* Malva is this to the Elite Four in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' - she was once a member of Team Flare and constantly talks about how much she despises the player for defeating them. The other Elite Four members don't seem to mind this.
** Similarly, the fact that Giovanni was the leader of Team Rocket did not prevent him from being the Viridian City Gym Leader in Videogame/PokemonRedAndBlue, or being brought back in the Pokemon World Tournament in Generation V even after ownership of the gym was relinquished to Blue.
* VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'s Byakuya Togami dances the line between this and AntiHero; the snooty heir of the powerful Togami family, who quickly and ruthlessly takes to the game, openly telling the others that they mean nothing to him. While he does do a huge amount of detective work during the various investigations, he'll also refuse to divulge information and at one point even plants false evidence to throw off the investigation and make things more interesting. But then eventually even eviler Token Evil Teammate is revealed in the form of [[spoiler: Fukawa's other personality, the SerialKiller Genocider Syo.]]
** Not to mention [[spoiler:Junko Enoshima, aka Mukuro Ikusaba, one half of Super High School Level Despair.]]
* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', Mike is a NobleDemon with [[EvenEvilHasStandards plenty of humanizing traits]], and Franklin is an AntiVillain with very sympathetic motives. Trevor, by contrast, is a [[AxCrazy complete]] [[PsychoForHire psychopath]] who is motivated solely by ForTheEvulz (Mike and Frank at least admit they do crimes for money), and of the three protagonists, has the highest body count and most [[MoralEventHorizon atrocities]] to his name.
* In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', the faction of Ionia is filled with heroic characters who would usually oppose the evil factions like Zaun and Noxus. That is, until the introduction of the Dark Sovereign Syndra, a woman with immense magical power, cares nothing except exercising her power and HATES being restricted for 'self control', so in malice, she killed her own master who suggests her that and then decides that Ionia's current leadership is too much of a wuss for her tastes and is plotting its destruction.
** Another evil Ionian is later introduced in form of Zed, the Master of Shadows, the only evil {{Ninja}} in the game. After driving out the old order of ninja who are more heroic (Shen, Akali and Kennen), Zed made it his mission to convert everyone to his dark arts of ninja and kill anyone else who are weak or opposing him. Naturally, both Zed and Syndra only have each other as allies [[WordOfGod as listed by Riot]].
* In ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'', the Radiant side is full of characters that are either heroic or sympathetic. Some are a little bit more bloodthirsty such as [[AxCrazy Luna or Legion Commander]], or fall into a more neutral category like [[ScarilyCompetentTracker Bounty Hunter]]. The only identifiably evil character in the faction is [[TheBerserker Troll Warlord]]. He is a psychopath that regularly threatens to kill his teammates, is the only hero in the game incapable of thanking people who help him, declares himself the one who carried the team to victory, and is the only hero who blames his team when he loses. If it's not obvious yet, he's also a parody of internet trolls and the infamous Dota playerbase.
** On the Dire side, there are some characters that are extremely evil and stand out even among their peers, such as [[NamestoRunAwayFromReallyFast Terrorblade]], [[EnfantTerrible Pugna]], and [[ManipulativeBastard Shadow Demon]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Arudin from Dungeon Crawl Inc. is this, though he insists he's "colorfully pragmatic." His most vile deeds occured years before he joined TheTeam, when he was an agent of the elven terrorist organization Eldreth Veluuthra. He did a HeelFaceTurn and nowadays he's mainly a [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] {{Jerkass}}.
* [[http://8bittheater.wikia.com/wiki/Black_Mage_Evilwizardington Black Mage]] of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' is [[FortheEvulz absurdly evil]]. In one arc, it is revealed that his SignatureMove, [[KamehameHadoken hadoken]], is [[ThePowerOfLove powered by love]]. That is, [[BlackMage he]] [[ManaDrain siphons love]] out of the universe to [[CallingYourAttacks fuel]] [[KiAttacks his]] [[HandBlast power]]. This has the added [[BlackMagic effect]] of [[DestructiveSavior raising the divorce rate with each blast]]. Of course, all the Light Warriors save for Fighter are amoral to some extent.
** Honestly, Thief and Red Mage are bad enough that classifying Fighter as the TokenGoodTeammate would probably be more accurate.
** While the Light Warriors as a whole are inept, stupid, violent, destructive and selfish, Black Mage stands out because he wants to destroy the world and everyone in it for no real reason. It's [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2006/07/15/episode-720-a-lesson-is-learned-but-the-damage-is-going-to-take-forever-to-clean-up/ suggested]] that its his own presence that causes the rest of the Light Warriors to be what they are.
* Richard in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' (pictured above) is this. On [[http://www.lfgcomic.com/page/2 page two]], we see him use an innocent bystander as a human shield. He then gleefully considers the prospect of killing the man's wife and young son, to "complete the set." The rest of the party is grey or good (Cale).
** Oddly enough, despite Richard killing Cale the first time they met (he got better), and Richard's constant CrossingTheLineTwice, by now Cale misses him so much when he is not around that he ''set his own hands on fire'' reminiscing. When Richard returned, there were hugs.
* Belkar in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. A ChaoticEvil CardCarryingVillain {{Jerkass}}, but Roy is [[spoiler:allowed into heaven]] partially because his influence limited the amount of evil Belkar would otherwise have done. (Exactly how much would that have been? See [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0489.html this comic.]]) Interestingly, this may be the first non-intuitive trope used without at least a LampshadeHanging.
** Also interesting in that it's played completely straight, bordering on [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]]. The implications of a mostly good party putting up with the sometimes utterly despicable actions of a teammate who shows them little loyalty are thoroughly explored.
*** And then [[DeconReconSwitch Reconstructed]] with Roy giving a lecture not only on how Belkar can be controlled, but why it would be a bigger risk not to try.
** This status quo is gradually changing, with Belkar having recently undergone a VisionQuest where he's convinced that the only way he can continue getting away with what he does is by ''pretending'' to be [[HeroicComedicSociopath more heroic, less sociopath]]. He's still a {{Jerkass}}, but considering he's inherited a MoralityPet in the form of Lord Shojo's RightHandCat, [[BecomingTheMask he may have begun to genuinely change for the better.]] But only slightly, since he's still willing to deal with slavers when they don't threaten his cat.
** Nevertheless, Belkar still is very much "south of Neutral", in Haley's words - which is sometimes [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0860.html not a bug, but a feature]].
** Later on in the story, he loses his status as the only evil character after [[spoiler: Durkon becomes a vampire. In fact, Belkar's the only character to (rightly) suspect there's more going on there than just an alignment shift.]]
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'':
** Bun-Bun is a [[SociopathicHero sociopath]] through and through, but the other characters keep him around partly out of sympathy, partly because his raw toughness comes in handy, and partly because he'd kick their asses for trying to get rid of him. Over the years, the cast has gotten quite good at "Bun-Bun-fu", arranging situations so that it's in Bun-Bun's best interest to help them.
--->'''Riff:''' I'm going to sweeten the deal! What do you think of this, Bun-Bun?\\
'''Bun-Bun:''' ''(unimpressed)'' It's an empty wallet.\\
'''Riff:''' ''(points to bad guy)'' And I bet ''his'' is full of cash and credit cards. And you've got to bodily throw one of us out.\\
'''Bun-Bun:''' Fair enough! Time to mug and take out the trash!
** Even more blatant during the ROKEN arc, where Bun-Bun goes up against [[spoiler:Oasis]] under the guise of doing it only for a huge pile of cash, only when he finally encounters [[spoiler:her]] he has this exchange:
--->'''Bun-Bun:''' I'll get right to the point, [[spoiler:Red]]. You simply have to stop messing with and killing the dweebs in my life. They suck, I know, but they're '''''my''''' dweebs. You're making me mad. But you know what's going to make you ''madder than me?'' I know [[spoiler:where Torg is]] and I'm not telling. So what are you going to do about it, [[spoiler:Crazy-Pants?]]
** Each time he got drunk he would tell the rest of the cast that he actually appreciates them...
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': Baron Wulfenbach seems to keep [[PsychoForHire Bangladesh Dupree]] on the payroll because it's better to have her using her destructiveness at his call rather than simply running loose. Of course, that leash isn't very tight.
** Tarvek considers himself this to Agatha's group, even declaring it out loud [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20101129#.VHN-p8lTjwk at one point.]]
---> '''Tarvek''': I'm totally one of the bad guys, ''okay''? I'm a great big devious weasel.
* Luke from ''Webcomic/{{Freakangels}}'' decided one day human morals really weren't his thing and has been going downhill ever since.
* Bezzler the thief in ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' essentially stole everything he could get his hands on and nearly bankrupted his party several times before Yeager slipped him a "Magic Helm of C'ntrol-Ault-Delete" (and again until Nodwick dealt with him after this wore off). Although in day-to-day life Yeager seems to play this role despite not being officially evil (often helped by Artax), largely due to his tendency to treat henchmen as {{Acceptable Target}}s.
* Ken in ''NoNeedForBushido'' is a SociopathicHero {{jerkass}} who is something like a combination of [[Anime/SamuraiChamploo Mugen]] and [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Prince Zuko]] but without either of their noble qualities. He's shown brutally mugging innocent people several times as a way to keep the group in-funds, and his good teammates are willing to tolerate this.
* Bob in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'' is evil, but still hangs out with his brother George and the rest of the main cast. He even saves George from trouble a few times. However, none of this stops him from occasionally trying to take over the world or kill everyone.
* At first, the Trolls in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' seem to have one in [[KnightTemplar Terezi "gallowsCalibrator" Pyrope]]. In Act Five, however, we meet the other Trolls; compared to Vriska "arachnidsGrip" Serket, Terezi is a ''saint''. The worst thing Terezi has done was [[spoiler:leading the protagonist to get himself killed by taking on enemies stronger than he could manage in an alternate timeline]], and she did this [[ForegoneConclusion knowing]] he would be [[BackFromTheDead back]]. Vriska, on the other hand, [[spoiler:forced one of her teammates to jump off a cliff and paralyze himself, then mind controlled another teammate into murdering his lover, and forced Terezi into staring into the sun until she went blind.]] Terezi ''has'' [[spoiler:killed trolls during her time as Vriska's partner in [[{{LARP}} FLARP]], but according to her, she only killed the "bad" ones, while Vriska just killed ''everyone''.]]
** Also the [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Trolls as a whole]] are a race of violent {{Jerk Ass}}es who have no qualms about infanticide or culling other "weak" members of their population. And they ''still'' all [[EvenEvilHasStandards hate Vriska, and Eridan even more.]]
** By the end of Act 5, [[spoiler:both Vriska and Eridan received LaserGuidedKarma deaths (albeit with a good bit of AlasPoorVillain for Vriska), leaving [[MonsterClown Gamzee]] as the Token Evil Teammate of the survivors]].
** For the Pre-scratch trolls Kurloz was probably the most outright evil, though Meenah and Damara were close behind.
* Mike from ''Webcomic/ItsWalky'' and ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}''. While not exactly evil, he takes being a {{Jerkass}} UpToEleven.
** When he's sober. When he's drunk, he turns into a nice guy.
* Galatea in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' seems to be very slowly growing a set of morals, thanks to her family's influence. She at least acknowledges that hurting innocent people is bad, but she still believes conquering a planet and setting yourself up as dictator is okay as long as no one gets (immediately) hurt. Bob pointed out that people ''would'' inevitably get hurt in the long run, and that gave her pause. So, she's gettin' there...
* Trudy of ''Webcomic/GeneralProtectionFault'', who was quite [[CardCarryingVillain over-the-top evil]] in the first few years, literally as well as figuratively [[KickTheDog kicking dogs]]. As CerebusSyndrome set in, she became a slightly toned down villain who was manipulating the rest of the cast to take over the world. After being defeated and forced on the run, her ex-boyfriend Trent took over her position, proving to be the most selfish and amoral of the GPF crew during his time there. The fact that both of them were in the same position gets lampshaded.
-->'''Nick''': Do they ''make'' marketing people in a less maniacal flavor?
** The trope isn't played completely straight with Trent, however. Dwayne shows more patience with his antics than he really deserves, though it's fair to say his feud with Fred isn't entirely one-sided, but Trent [[ http://www.gpf-comics.com/archive/2005/08/17 does eventually push the TeamDad too far.]]
--> '''Trent:''' "''Fired?!'' On what grounds?"
--> '''Dwayne''': "Let's see. Harrassing a fellow employee. Attempting to ''murder'' said fellow employee. Disrupting the workplace with frivolous lawsuits. I don't like you, I'm through defending you to my employees, you just attempted to pull my wife's clothes off..." [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking (He forgot to mention installing a wireless router without permission.)]]
--> '''Trent:''' "I think I get the picture..."
* In ''GodsPlayingPoker'', Cthulhu himself is generally on the side of hurting people and eating souls, although the actual group doesn't do much literal heroing, being mostly composed of holy figures of various faiths.
* Most of the characters in ''Webcomic/TheLastDaysOfFoxhound'' are at least a little evil, but either [[SociopathicHero Psycho Mantis]] or [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Ocelot]] are the default evil guys.
* In ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'', Pete doesn't exactly play his character evil, but as more of an insane and completely ammoral psychopath. Though he doesn't seem to be aware that there is anything unusual about it. And it's ''R2-D2'' of all people.
** He does admit that he likes the group in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0376.html this]] strip, after he GM's a session which turns into a death trap.
** Lampshaded in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0783.html #783]]:
---> '''R2-D2:''' If ''I'' was controlling a bad guy you know what I'd do?\\
'''Obi-Wan:''' ''"If"?''
* Lothar Hex of ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow''.
* In ''WebComic/OnePieceGrandLine3Point5'', Cory plays Zoro as a ChaoticNeutral [[invoked]] BloodKnight only out for himself. The only thing tying him to the party is his UndyingLoyalty flaw; as Zoro didn't answer to ''anyone'', Cory figured it wouldn't come up, and only realized after agreeing to follow Luffy [[OhCrap what that meant]].
** DM was also going to enter [[BattleButler Kurahadol]] into the team, but instead illustrated [[{{Deconstruction}} some of the problems inherit to this]]; he was so excessively rude to his would-be party members that by the end of their first meeting, Luke was asking if they could just kill him off so she'd have to roll up a new character.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Many of the characters from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' can occupy this role depending on their current motivation. Sometimes Church; most often, Tex. After season 2, when the teams are frequently allied against a greater threat, Sarge views the Blues as a collective Evil Teammate.
* In Roleplay/WeAreOurAvatars, The [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 Merchant]] counts as one for the Group but he didn't really cause a major amount of trouble, regardless of his alignment. [[{{Drakengard}} Caim]] is the other Token Evil Teammate, being a HeroicComedicSociopath that often gets [[WhatTheHellHero called out]] for his violent approach to... well, just about anything.
* {{Kirby}} from SonicForHire, who is a whole lot eviler in this series than he normally is. He doesn't mind swallowing or hitting innocent creatures or servants with umbrellas.
* Even though Nights has happily tortured people in the past, Krauzer still takes this title in ''Roleplay/{{AJCO}}'' - he's a jerk to everyone, including his allies, and has revealed that he murdered the man who raised him and taught him all he knows because he felt he was 'getting in the way'. [[spoiler: Also killed his own parents aged four, but even he doesn't know that.]]
* The Undersiders of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' are [[VillainProtagonist Villain Protagonists]], but for the most part are [[NobleDemon Noble Demons]]. Then there's Regent, a sociopathic DeadpanSnarker who's a multiple-murderer, former rapist, and [[LackOfEmpathy entirely incapable of remorse]] except in the most abstract sense.
* While the whole main cast of ''Series/FlandersCompany'' is made of {{Villain Protagonist}}s, it's revealed in Season 2 that their TokenGoodTeammate possesses a SuperPoweredEvilSide.
* Discussed in ''Webvideo/CounterMonkey'', in which Spoony actively discourages letting a player make an evil character in a party of good guys since not only because the player simply just want to actively fuck with the party, there is no reason that a group of heroes would trust said character, especially if there's a Paladin or Cleric (who can cast Detect Evil) within the group. He does however offer some possible ways to make the character work (a LawfulEvil character or one [[EnemyMine who hates the current villain more than he does the party]]).
* WebOriginal/FalloutIsDragons has Doctor Fractured Tibia, more commonly called Tibbs. He'll often threaten other characters, including his so called allies, with painful death or torture, and has gone through with his threats on several occasions.
** There's also Famine, one of the leaders of the Four Horses raider gang. Which, given that the Four Horses were introduced as antagonists, is really saying something.
* LetsPlay/HatFilms has Smiffy (Alex Smith), although "evil" might be an exaggeration. While (at least when playing ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'') the Sirs are mostly ''immoral'' and ended up being [[BigBadDuumvirate the biggest threat to the rest of the]] LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} [[Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries server]] before it was deactivated, they have some limits. Smiffy, on the other hand, regularly [[PyroManiac sets things on fire]], [[ForTheEvulz does cruel things for his own amusement]], tries to weaponise anything that the trio makes (up to and including making nukes), [[{{Griefer}} trolls others on the public server]] and kills tamed animals for petty reasons.
* Creator/GavinFree used to be considered this for Creator/AchievementHunter, often trolling the others regularly in an effort to make videos more entertaining. Since then, however, Ryan Haywood has surpassed him, regularly making sadistic challenges for the others, imprisoning animals for petty reasons and constantly betraying the others ForTheEvulz.
* In ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' Gaea is not exactly this for most of the story despite her ManipulativeBastard status. Omega Zell is quite prone do underhanded behaviour himself and Arthéon's behaviour has several time implied that he could throw his benevolent Guild Master personality out the window if it meant getting back some of the status he lost in the backstory. They were also all equally guilty of considering that the [[TheMillstone Sparadrap]] was the sole reason of their lack of progress despite their respective flaws playing a big part in it also. She however definitely became the token evil of the team after [[spoiler:Arthéon and Omega Zell left the guild and all the other remaining members were much more on the good side]].
* Typically, whenever LetsPlay/LewisBrindley, LetsPlay/SimonLane and LetsPlay/DuncanJones play ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' together, it's a fair bet that Lewis and Duncan will both work fairly efficiently on their various projects, with the odd moment of trolling or silliness in between. Simon, however, will remorselessly set things on fire, kill the others for relatively petty reasons (such as Duncan talking about a golf course that wasn't practical to finish), use TNT to "[[DiggingYourselfDeeper solve]]" a problem more often than not, steal things from others and insult them. He's fairly bad in ''VideoGame/TroubleInTerroristTown'' as well, in which he tends to RDM [[note]]kill on flimsy grounds[[/note]] while innocent and do his fellow traitors in with suicide bombs when a traitor. Ironically, [[TokenGoodTeammate he's the complete opposite in]] ''Yoglabs''.
* Tyce from ''WebOriginal/DeagleNation'' is this to the rest of Deagle Nation. Not only has he started a "civil war" within deagle nation twice now, but he's also a neo-nazi and has stated plenty of times that he's wanted to start a race war to "free the skeletons" among other goals.
* In the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} series ''[[Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries Cornerstone]]'', the participants such as Duncan, LetsPlay/HannahRutherford, LetsPlay/{{Sjin}}, LetsPlay/KimRichards and LetsPlay/{{Rythian}} are largely capable of cooperation, although most factions have built a secret base or two and arguments tend to crop up. This is not the case with LetsPlay/HatFilms, who generally antagonise the other seven players, stole a lot of gold all to build a "Mile High Club" base, steal jetpacks, found a cult to a golden hand and try murdering the others when their own secret base is ravaged. This applies to a lesser extent with LetsPlay/{{Strippin}}, who essentially acts as their muscle.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Bender on ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''.
-->'''Bender:''' From now on I promise I'll never be too good or too evil again. I'll just be me.\\
'''Leela:''' Do you think you could be a little less evil than that?\\
'''Bender:''' I dunno. Do you think you could survive a 700 foot fall?\\
'''Fry:''' Good old Bender.
** Given his near-total lack of regard for human life and number of Doomsday devices, one could also make a case for [[MadScientist Farnsworth]] being this.
* Stewie Griffin in early seasons of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Ironically however, while the rest of the family TookALevelInJerkass he's arguably [[TookALevelInKindness evolved into one of the more likable characters in the show]].
** Which technically makes him the TokenGoodTeammate now.
* Roger of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' While none of the Smith household are exactly saintly in behavior, they can at least play TheStraightMan or display a plausible conscience at times, DependingOnTheWriter. Roger on the other hand is a rather consistant ComedicSociopath [[LackOfEmpathy who has problems feeling for]] [[ItsAllAboutMe anyone over himself]] ([[CharacterizationMarchesOn at least par a few early occasions]]).
* Zorak from ''WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow''.
* Eric Cartman from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''.
* Adder from ''WesternAnimation/TheAnimalsOfFarthingWood''.
* [[TroubledButCute Duncan]] and [[AlphaBitch Heather]] on ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Island'' (the former being more childishly destructive, the latter being more of a ManipulativeBastard). Justin in ''Total Drama Action'' (as a SmugSnake). Alejandro in ''Total Drama World Tour'' as a sort of [[ManipulativeBastard Heather]]-[[SmugSnake Justin]] [[MagnificentBastard hybrid]]. Scott in ''Total Drama Revenge of the Island'' as another ManipulativeBastard.
** Both played straight and inverted in ''Total Drama All Stars''. Inverted with the Villainous Vultures having Gwen (who doesn't even want to be evil) and played straight with Courtney and later Duncan on the Heroic Hamsters [[spoiler:and Mike's new evil personality Mal.]]
* Iago from Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries''.
* Joseph Stalin in the "Freedom League" sketch on ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}''
* Dinobot serves this role in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' [[spoiler:for about the first two seasons. Shortly after his death, Blackarachnia takes over.]]
* Buford from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' isn't actually evil, but he is rude, intimidating, and a self-professed bully.
* Prince Phobos, the former season's BigBad, takes this role briefly during the second season of ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'', because he's the only person who can take the new BigBad's AmplifierArtifact away from her without it instantly teleporting back. Phobos spends a handful of episodes grudgingly helping the heroes (while acting like a titanic JerkAss to them all the while) [[spoiler: and then he finally gets what he wants- said AmplifierArtifact for himself. He promptly betrays everybody and resumes the throne of BigBad]].
* WordOfGod is that if the planned ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' spinoff ''Gargoyles 2198'' ever gets made, Demona, BigBad of the existing ''Gargoyles'' series, will take this role. It's not that she's gotten over her FantasticRacism towards humans, but more that she's decided she likes the ScaryDogmaticAliens who've taken over Earth even less -- for now. Whether she'll eventually morph into TheAtoner or take back the BigBad role herself is left deliberately unanswered.
* Heloise on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''. She's as often seen in the company of [[LouisCypher Lucius]] as [[IdiotHero Jimmy]] (whom she has a crush on).
* [[EvilWeapon Rubilax]] on ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' is a [[TheBrute brute]] who is always [[BloodKnight looking for a good fight]] and a [[OmnicidalManiac chance to spread mayhem and destruction]] just ForTheEvulz. [[SealedEvilInACan Being sealed in a sword]] forces him to use [[DeadpanSnarker snarking]] as an outlet for his frustrated evil. Fortunately for him, his wielder Shushu Knight [[IdiotHero Sadlygrove]] provides plenty of SnarkBait. For most of the series Rubilax is a double-edged sword -- pun intended -- since he is a powerful weapon that can use different elemental powers depending on the situation. On the other hand, he's always trying to take [[DemonicPossession possession]] of Sadlygrove in order to wreak havoc.
* WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce has Shake: a bastard who lives to torture his roommates and for personal gain. The other members of the team often do evil things as well, but Shake is unique in that [[ForTheEvulz he doesn't need a reason.]]
* Rabbit from ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'' often acts as a child friendly variant of the trope. He is certainly the most antagonistic of the other docile members of the Hundred Acre Wood, he is a GrumpyBear at worst however, and to many audiences the [[OnlySaneMan sanest]] and [[ThisLoserIsYou most relatable character]] of the series.
* Mr. Krabs from ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', in later seasons.
* Rusty Venture often takes this role on ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' He'd really like to be a good guy (and has passed on at least one chance to become a CardCarryingVillain), but he's far too lazy and selfish to pass up an opportunity to make a buck just because it hurts someone else. We're talking about a guy who built [[RefugeInAudacity a machine powered by an orphan's heart]], here.
** Rusty is the reason for the PoweredByAForsakenChild trope. The aforementioned LotusEaterMachine was desribed as such by [[TropeNamer Doctor Orpheus]].
* Rico from ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''. He's canonically classed by Skipper as their resident psychopath, and out of any of the members of the penguin team, causes the most trouble intentionally.
* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode [[http://dcanimated.wikia.com/wiki/Hereafter Hereafter]], when Superman was supposed dead, Lobo stepped up to fill in the missing spot. He took the HeroInsurance ridiculous to new levels. Of course, the other members of the league never agreed to it but they really needed an extra hand at the time. When Superman returns, they get Lobo to scram.
* Ice King from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' starting season 3.
** To a lesser extent, Peppermint Butler. He's known to the Gumball Guardians as "The Dark One" and he's best friends with death. And he's still Princess Bubblegum's loyal butler.
* Admit it, your first thought on [[WesternAnimation/TheXs Truman X]] would be the occasional EvilLaugh.
* Trina Riffin from ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'', and as much as being a hinderance to the band, she's also an unwitting help to them (Corey's inability to come up with lyrics is part of the reason).
* Varrick in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''. His motives for helping [[LaResistance Team Avatar]] against Unalaq were far from altruistic, as he did not care for the interests of the Southern Water Tribe, only for profiting from the conflict. He is willing to go to extremes, such as breaking the law to do this.
** [[spoiler:However, he ended up becoming a SixthRangerTraitor and he was sabotaging their mission from the start. He masterminded terrorist attacks behind the heroes' backs that were executed by triads. He even took advantage of [[FallenPrincess Asami]] by stealing her equipment just to make her desperate enough to sell him controlling interest.]]
* Alexandra from ''JosieAndThePussycats''. She's always trying to steal Alan from Josie, even if she and the others are in the midst of trouble with megalomaniacs.
* Doktor Frogg is the only member of the ''WesternAnimation/LeagueOfSuperEvil'' who is actually evil as opposed to [[HarmlessVillain just obnoxious.]]
