* ''VideoGame/DotHackGU'': Sakaki was merely annoying and overzealous at first, but later revelations removed any kind of sympathy fans might have had for him. Specifically, the revelation that he had been manipulating and controlling AIDA behind the scenes, and that his ultimate goal was to use AIDA as mass mind control over all of humanity. But the biggest blow against him was his treatment of Atoli, who had long been one of his strongest supporters. Turns out he had met her on a suicide website, preyed on her fears about being alone and considered worthless, effectively brainwashed her into depending on him, and then {{Mind Rape}}d her to bring out the power of her Epitaph. When all of his plans fail and he gets infected with AIDA himself, he then spends the first half of the final volume putting together a sadistic tournament for the sole purpose of making Haseo and the rest suffer (harming quite a few others in the process), and ''laughing'' at the pain he's causing.
* ''VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo'': [[BigBad Miranda Jahana]] is a CorruptCorporateExecutive who wants to create the perfect fighter by any means necessary. To that end, she forced her own daughter Reimi to undergo TrainingFromHell, [[EvilMatriarch abandoning her without a second thought]] when she lost to Yuka, and created GattacaBabies through genetic manipulation, only to [[BadBoss cruelly kill them off]] [[YouHaveFailedMe when they didn't fare any better than Reimi]].

She's no better in the OVA series with her manipulation of [[TheWoobie Satomi]], offering her a DealWithTheDevil in exchange for a cure for her ill brother, and tried to [[GrandTheftMe take over her body]]. Worst of all, the reason why she wants to create the ultimate fighter is never revealed, so it looks like she's only doing all of this ForTheEvulz.
* ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'':
** Chaos Dragonlord Vath not only enslaved the dwarves, but also his own dragon. He doesn't care how much pain and suffering he's causing the dwarves in the slightest and doesn't even care if they starve to death, as long as they can forge enough Chaos Emeralds to keep him happy. Worse yet, Vath even threatens to enslave the rest of Lore and will throw the bodies of anyone who tries to foil his plans down to the dwarves as a demonstration of what happens to those who oppose his might.
** Chaos Lord Krellenos [[MindRape corrupted his brother Antiphuus]] and allowed his kin to blame the Horcs for his death.

Alan eventually resorted to vivisecting human victims, among whom was his own father. He also enslaved his brother Obed to help with his schemes. By the time of the game's events, Alan intends to open the gate to the World of Darkness, unleashing its eldritch bisophere to cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt
* ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol'': Halbech's CEO [[BigBad Henry Leland]] is a CorruptCorporateExecutive who knows absolutely no boundaries in his goal to make profit out of the suffering from others. Throughout the game it is revealed piece by piece that he is behind every major crime in the story. Among many other things, he provided the resources and the objective for the terrorist cell Al-Samad to shoot down a civilian airliner; framed Mike as a traitor and thus ruined his life; ordered the assassination of Taiwan's president; and sent [[TheDragon Conrad Marburg]] to assault the heavily visited Museum of Arts in Rome, where Mike is forced to [[SadisticChoice choose between a friend (or loved one, depending on the choices) and a whole room of civilians.]] His overall goal is to destabilize the world and drive humanity to the brink of WorldWar3, [[WarForFunAndProfit just so he can make a fortune out of it.]] His preferred method of recruiting underlings is ruining their lives and thus practically forcing them into his services, as he did with Marburg and also tries with Mike. If the player accepts this, he shows that once he [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness has no more use for his people, he throws them away like dirt,]] by ordering Mike to execute anyone who knew of his plans, [[PlayerPunch including Mina.]] Coldly calculating, merciless and with a {{smug|Snake}} and [[FauxAffablyEvil false friendliness]] to add insult to injury, Leland truly earns his role as the biggest bastard throughout the game.

When the worship began, and his powers manifested, he used them to peer into the minds of the humans, making the human king his puppet. After being exposed and [[SealedEvilInACan imprisoned]], Melzas manipulated multiple atrocities to increase his powers, using priests to keep his human subjects subdued and loyal. Melzas was also responsible for dark nightmares that could actually kill people, and when he perceives a human as a threat, he has forces sent to destroy the human's entire village. Melzas might be a GodOfEvil but solely because he chose to become one himself, out of nothing more than ego and a lust for power.

The power Croseus has over his descendants is represented in the chilling ArcWords: '''He always returns to his blood.''' Not content with this, Croseus runs a legacy of dark magic and murder, routinely sacrificing children for power to the point where the well behind the village slaughterhouse is full of the bones of missing children. In the present, Croseus takes control of and possesses the nameless heroine's husband, before setting his plan into motion: to open the gates to the EldritchAbomination beings he worships and allow them to devour all that lives.

Through the game, you hear of evil deeds Ignacy has apparently had a role in: murdering a hero's mother and manipulating loyal warriors to betray their benefactors and murdering them later. Ignacy forces a painful transformation on innocent victims, which makes the heroes kill the victims in self defense. Later in the game, Ignacy kidnaps one hero's sister for information.

* The ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series is well known for its [[GrayAndGrayMorality complex morality]] with its struggle of Assassin vs. [[KnightTemplar Templar]], but several villains have managed to show they are nothing but monsters.
** Majd Addin, the de facto dictator of Jerusalem in [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI the first game]], is a {{smug|Snake}}, strutting sadist of a man who takes full advantage of his position to carry out his wish of holding the lives and deaths of the populace in his face. Majd Addin regularly orders and carries out the executions of innocents for trumped up charges. Unlike his fellows, he has no illusions he is doing any good in the world. When Altair performs his assassination, one victim is even a prostitute who protests her only crime was not sleeping with Majd Addin. When he is confronted by Altair, Majd Addin gleefully explains he has done everything [[ForTheEvulz because he could]], and holding the lives of others in his hands made him [[AGodAmI feel like a God.]]
** Governor Pierre de Fayet in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'' stands in stark contrast to the WellIntentionedExtremist Templars and tyrants of the modern era. The Governor of Port au Prince, de Fayet perpetuates the brutal system of oppression, having slaves treated worse than any other in the series. He also supports and frequents an African brothel.

To this end, [[spoiler:Chakravartin's]] attempts to find an heir resulted in his creation of the monstrous Gohma that have destroyed so many innocent lives so he can test the resolve of the Gods. This also resulted in the Gods using humans as slaves and harvesting their souls and Mantra for their own powers. All the death and destruction in the game, over the course of over 10, 000 years are all the fault of [[spoiler:Chakravartin]], solely so he could find someone else to do his job for him, and would kill and restart everything until he got the result he wanted. Despite trying to claim himself as a WellIntentionedExtremist, [[spoiler:Chakravartin's]] claims are shown to be the hollow words of a cruel egomaniac, and once defied, the true monster he really is comes out.
* ''VideoGame/AzureDreams'': Beldo initially traveled with Guy, the father of KidHero Koh, in order to find the Ultimate Egg to give him ultimate power and TakeOverTheWorld. Beldo betrayed and killed Guy and later killed the father of Koh's rival as well.

To spite a group of heroes who stood against him, Wiseman killed near everyone in their hometown, and left only two survivors. He attempted to convert the world to energy and absorb it within himself. Despite failing, Wiseman was not destroyed and [[GrandTheftMe possessed Verus]] and corrupted him. Wiseman manipulates all of verus's atrocities, causing mass death and torture of his former lover. When forced to reveal himself, Wiseman declares his intents to devour the heroes' hearts and rule over their world for eternity.
** ''Baten Kaitos Origins'' has [[spoiler:Quaestor Verus]], who, while acting under the guise of a ReasonableAuthorityFigure, coldly masterminds the plot to [[spoiler:become the Emperor]] by taking advantage of everyone else. Before the game's events, he [[spoiler:uses a just born baby Sagi (whom he may have fathered through rape) in a lethal experiment that fuses pieces of dead evil gods with living beings]]. During the game, he orders Shanath (a ''massive'' JerkAss in his own right) to cross the MoralEventHorizon by [[spoiler:taking Sagi's mother Gena's wings off in the public election speech]]...just to smear on the reputation of someone getting in his way. Later on, just as [[spoiler:Baelheit]] is about to consider a HeelFaceTurn, [[spoiler:Quaestor Verus]] shows up, murders him, and starts '''gloating''' about all his deeds.
* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'':
** ComicBook/TheJoker serves as the OverarchingVillain of the series. When he [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins first established himself in Gotham]], he hijacked Black Mask's organization, tortured and murdered innocents and Black Mask's loyal henchmen in a depraved makeshift funhouse, and tried to bomb multiple occupied buildings. Targeting Batman as his [[ArchEnemy nemesis]], he plagued the Caped Crusader for years. In [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum one notable instance]], he took over Arkham Asylum and staged a breakout which lead to the mass slaughter of personnel. His end goal was to use his creation, TITAN, to create an army of monsters to unleash upon Gotham. [[BodyHorror Left dying]] of a TITAN overdose in the wake of this incident, Joker [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity forces Batman to find a cure for his condition]] by poisoning as many as two thousand people with his infected blood, and eventually goes on to murder Batman's LoveInterest, Talia al Ghul, right in front of him. Even after his death, flashbacks in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' further show his depravity, such as his crippling of Barbara Gordon and his horrifying psychical and psychological torture of [[spoiler:Jason Todd]] for over a year in an abandoned wing of Arkham. He ended up breaking [[spoiler:Jason]] so completely, that when he asked him to reveal Batman's identity, [[spoiler: Jason]] began to answer only for Joker to seemingly shoot him dead then send the videotape of events to Batman; while he survived, he was so broken that he became the Arkham Knight. Caring only for himself, the Joker [[BastardBoyfriend abuses his girlfriend]], Harley Quinn, and acts as one of the [[BadBoss worst bosses]] in the series by experimenting on his henchmen, threatening to kill their loved ones, and murdering them for fun. Tie-in material adds to his list of crimes. In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'', he tries to use a dirty bomb on Gotham City. In the digital comic, ''Arkham City: End Game'', besides trying to foment chaos and [[TakingYouWithMe kill Batman]], we see in flashbacks that on a July 4th he cut the power to Gotham and rigged fireworks with Joker Toxin, killing hundreds. A narcissistic {{sadist}} with a [[AttentionWhore pathological need for attention]], the Joker is determined to make Gotham forever remember him by [[CardCarryingVillain writing his name in the city with blood]].
** The Scarecrow, [[PsychoPsychologist Dr. Jonathan Crane]], is a MadScientist dedicated to the study of fear. First appearing in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', he participates in Joker's plan to take over the titular asylum and attempts to MindRape Batman several times with his fear toxin. Upon his final defeat, he threatens to contaminate Gotham's water supply with the toxin simply to spite Batman. Scarecrow returns in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' as the BigBad. This time around, he takes advantage of the [[EvilPowerVacuum power vacuum created by Joker's death]] and [[VillainTeamUp unites all the remaining villains]] against Batman. After a demonstration of his newest fear toxin causes a diner full of people to rip each other apart, Gotham is evacuated, allowing Scarecrow to take over a chemical plant and manufacture a fear bomb powerful enough to take out the eastern seaboard. He even gleefully speculates that the toxin will carry on the air across the county, creating a "nation of fear." Foiled in this, he steals a superweapon called the Cloudburst and uses it to drive all of Gotham temporarily mad with fear. He also has Barbara Gordon kidnapped and leads Batman to believe that [[spoiler:his toxin caused her to kill herself]]. He then manipulates Commissioner Gordon into betraying Batman, and, after the Commissioner goes against orders and seemingly kills him, Scarecrow [[spoiler:[[ForcedToWatch forces Jim to watch]] as he drops the still-living Barbara off of a building]]. In the end, he captures Batman and forces Gordon to [[spoiler:unmask him]] on live TV. He then plans on letting Batman go [[CruelMercy so he can watch as Gotham is torn apart and everyone he loves is hunted down and killed.]] All of this was done to completely destroy the myth of the Batman as a savior, and force everyone to experience true fear by [[HopeCrusher destroying their symbol of hope]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'': [[EvilGod Loptr]] is the {{evil twin}} of Loki, both having split off from the original creator god Aesir. Revealed as responsible for the evil of Father Balder from the [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} first game]], Loptr murdered Balder’s beloved, the Umbra Witch Rosa and [[FrameUp framed Loki]] for it to send Balder on a hunt for vengeance, as his {{evil plan}} required Loki out of the way. Loptr manipulates Bayonetta and her allies while causing death and destruction until he can seize the ultimate powers of creation for himself and recreate himself as the ultimate god anew.

* ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'': [[GeneralRipper General Kehck]] is the leader of the Alpha Sections, a military organization that, under the guise of benevolent saviors, aides the [=DomZ=] aliens in their attempt to harvest everyone on the planet, just as they have done across hundreds of worlds. Those abducted are transported to the moon where they are [[VampiricDraining sucked dry of all their fluids]] so that [[TheDragon Kehck]] and his master, [[BigBad the DomZ Priest]], [[ImmortalityImmorality may live longer]]. Throughout the game Kehck uses his PropagandaMachine to urge the people of Hillys to enlist in the Alpha Sections, knowing full well that they'll be slowly converted by the [=DomZ=] into monstrous grotesqueries to act as his army of mooks. When the protagonist, Jade, manages to start exposing the truth about the Alpha Sections, Kehck responds by [[WouldHurtAChild kidnapping the war orphans Jade's adopted for he and his boss to feed on]]. He also hooks up Jade's ParentalSubstitute, Pey'j, into a torture machine for three weeks, which eventually ends up killing him. Unlike the [=DomZ=] Priest who needs to feed on planets to survive, or the other Alpha Sections soldiers who have been turned into monsters, Kehck is completely human and isn't in any danger of dying. He's just a selfish CardCarryingVillain who wants to live a little bit longer and is willing to wipe out entire planets to do so.
* ''VideoGame/BioShock1'': [[BigBad Frank Fontaine]] ([[spoiler: AKA [[DiabolicalMastermind Atlas]]]]), gangster and [[spoiler:supposedly]] [[PosthumousCharacter deceased]] political rival to Andrew Ryan, [[VillainWithGoodPublicity had a public face of providing shelter and promotion of welfare towards orphans and the poor]], in itself the antithesis of Ryan's ideology. However, he experimented with sea slugs that carry ADAM, and had no qualms of placing them in [[WouldHurtAChild very young girls]], some of them even forcibly taken from their parents for the "orphanages," to concentrate the ADAM. Also, it turned out that the poor under Fontaine's care was really no better off than they had been, and he had really been manipulating them toward his own gain while getting them addicted to ADAM. He and the newly-christened Splicers initiated a civil war in order to get other inhabitants into ADAM and [[spoiler: feigned his own death]]. It's also revealed he programmed Andrew Ryan's own son, [[spoiler:Jack, the PlayerCharacter]], from birth in order to force him to eventually kill his father so Fontaine could usurp Ryan's position then [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kill his pawn once he outlived his usefulness]]. In the prequel DLC ''BioShockInfinite/BurialAtSea'', it's revealed that, in order to force Elizabeth to obtain the means to control his pawn, he [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured her]] by [[EyeScream sticking a pick in her eye]], tapping it with a hammer, and threatening to lobotomize her. When that didn't work, he threatened to do it to a [[WouldHurtAChild little girl]] instead, and once he got what he wanted, Fontaine murdered [[spoiler:Elizabeth]] by [[WrenchWhack bludgeoning her to death]].
* ''VideoGame/TheBlackHeart'': Prince Janos of the Other World is an aspiring EvilOverlord who desires nothing but total domination over others.

His motives are [[ForTheEvulz fun]] and wanting to [[DespairEventHorizon plunge the world into despair]], the only thing he believed to be the ultimate truth.
** Relius Clover is an unabashed MadScientist, [[AbusiveParents Abusive Father]] ''par excellence'' who views other humans as nothing more but his experiment subjects and would experiment on them with utter glee. He killed both his wife and his daughter and turned them into [[RobotGirl gynoid killers]] ForScience and rightfully earned the hatred of his son Carl. He also uses the same reasoning for inflicting ColdBloodedTorture on Lambda-11, and most of the atrocities Terumi does is thanks to Relius' research, with Relius fully aware and approving of it all. In one route, he's even willing to [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kill an ally just for being in his way]].
* The ''VideoGame/BloodRayne'' series: Kagan is the heroine Rayne's ArchnemesisDad and the BigBad of the second game. A powerful vampire lord, Kagan has a fascination with the {{Dhampir}} race and creates his own by raping human women to produce offspring before eventually killing every member of their maternal family and everything they care about, leaving them with nobody but Kagan himself to rely on. Kagan ended up working with the Nazis to further his own goals and killed Rayne's mentor and friend, torturing him by strangling him with his own intestines before the man [[TakingYouWithMe used a grenade to destroy himself with Kagan]], except Kagan had survived. Kagan uses a plan to blot out the sun and leave a vampire kingdom for himself and his kind, to rule as a king. Kagan displays no care for any other being, coldly informing one of his daughters [[YouHaveFailedMe her services are no longer required]] before having her thrown into a miles-long drop, and later mocks Rayne by declaring she's scarce worth the "effort I took to create it."
* ''VideoGame/BravelyDefault'':
** [[TheDandy Red Mage Fiore [=DeRosa=]]] is the leader of the Bloodrose leigon division of the Eternian forces, and is responsible for almost everything wrong with the Florem region. He has his lieutenants butcher creatures considered sacred to the people of Florem to produce beauty products that are either poisonous, or awaken selfish and murderous emotions in the user. Meanwhile, [=DeRosa=] himself uses the leftovers from production to create a love potion cologne, which he takes out on the town to brainwash women, partly to extract more ingredients for his love potion, and partly [[ForTheEvulz for fun]]. He also works with Qada.
** [[TheSociopath Qada the Salve-Maker]] is supposed to be the [[TheMedic chief medic]] for the Eternian Black Blades division. What he actually is could be classified as [[MadScientist something else entirely]]. The party first hears of him through ghosts: victims of his diabocial "purple mist," a poison gas that slaughtered over 10,000 men and ruined the land itself. The only survivor was Qada. Although Qada's superior has it sealed away, Qada plans to go behind his back to create an even more powerful poison, using the men under his care for [[ForScience his experiments]]. If Qada is defeated at the right time, he reveals plans to leave the Black Blades, earn his fortune as a [[ArmsDealer chemical weapons dealer]], and then return to slaughter everyone, regardless of alignment. Before the events of the game, Qada and [=DeRosa=] worked together with with the amoral {{Jerkass}} Profiteur to commit war crimes and loot war victims. At one point, they plot together to unleash one of Qada's plagues to kill off key leaders in Eternia, and then provide a cure to the survivors to earn themselves leadership of the land. It really says something when, given the option of being remembered as a great hero or a diabolical madman, Qada has no idea which he'd prefer.
* ''VideoGame/BreathOfFire'':
** [[SinisterMinister Father Habaruku]] of ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireII'' is the founder of [[PathOfInspiration the church]], which steals the souls of its believers in order to power up the BigBad. His favorite method for winning followers seems to be replacing respected members of various communities with literal demons that disguise themselves as those people. He also replaced a man who used to be in charge of the church, a priest who was such a compassionate, big-hearted, and lovable character, [[spoiler:and your father]]. He got booted off the scene so that Habaruku could take over, then [[PlayerPunch strapped to a horrible demonic contraption and his life energy itself is used to power it for about ten years]].
** The MadScientist named Yuna from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' comes off as little more than a self-righteous, smarmy little git until you complete the dungeon of his lab and [[spoiler: you see that he's taken Nina's sister and made her into some sort of genetically modified horror. Him telling all about the 'wonderful gift' he's given her, looking for some kind of praise, makes it clear how irredeemably evil the guy actually is]]. Yuna also built a weapon of warfare that launches Hex, a toxic gas, physically. It's actually [[spoiler: the souls of people tortured at the hands of Yuna and the more anguish they have, the better the effect.]] You can see this in a side event and its effects are presented in the village of Chamba in the beginning of the game. The way the player experiences its horror just drives the point home. [[spoiler: At one point in the game, we are introduced to Mami, a genuinely likable love interest for Fou-lu. Just as it seems she's going to reform him, she's taken away and tortured to the ''point of insanity'' so she can be used to fuel an attack against the poor guy. When he discovers this, he decides that HumansAreTheRealMonsters and becomes intent on destroying them.]] To add insult upon injury, [[spoiler: Yuna [[KarmaHoudini slithers from the chains of karma]], since a player doesn't get to splatter the guy's innards all over the place. In the ending, he even smugly claims he will do it all over again.]] According to [[WordOfGod the creative team]], [[spoiler: a player ''was'' supposed to get around to tearing him a new one, [[ExecutiveMeddling but the suits decided rushing the game out was more important than actually finishing it]].]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}}'': BigBad [[GeneralRipper General Victor Sarrano]] is a gleefully unrepentant {{Sadist}} who veers between amusement and [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence arousal]] as he sends special-forces assassins after civilian critics, hands out death sentences to his own men for not being imaginatively brutal enough, and [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder backstabs anyone who crosses his path if there's the slightest chance that it might benefit him]]. The fact that he's a racist, sexist misanthrope who delights in being as obnoxious as possible to everyone he meets merely illustrates his sheer attention to detail in keeping himself devoid of redeeming qualities.
* ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'': {{General|Ripper}} Nikita [[BigBad Dragovich]] is a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who creates the "numbers" program that [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashes captive American soldiers]] into sleeper agents to kill their own people.

After the war, Dragovich would lead a project to recover the biochemical Nova 6 weapon. To test its effectiveness, Dragovich and his [[TheDragon right-hand-man]] {{Colonel|Kilgore}} Lev Krevchenko used it on Russian soldiers. Dragovich would later become one of the Soviet Union's most powerful members, where he would capture [[spoiler: [[PlayerCharacter Alex Mason]]]] and brainwash him into becoming a presidential assassin. Even worse, Dragovich planned to use his sleeper agents to release Nova 6 on the whole of the United States.

Al-Asad, with Zakhaev's help, overthrew a democratic government in an unknown Middle Eastern country, taking power in a coup. Their men kill anyone who resists and they line up innocent people and use them as target practice. Zakhaev supplied Al-Asad with weapons for the coup (including a nuke), and too staged a bloody coup, except on a much larger scale in Russia. He orders the slaughtering of whole villages. Together, they [[NukeEm nuked a major city]], Al-Asad's own capital, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people and about 30,000 American soldiers. Zakhaev did it to kill as many Americans as he could, and Al-Asad did it so he [[DirtyCoward didn't have to worry about the Americans coming after him]].
** [[BigBad Vladimir Makarov]] from the second and third games establishes himself when he and his men cold-heartedly slaughter an airport terminal full of civilians, using the PlayerCharacter trying to [[ReverseMole infiltrate Makarov’s group]]. He then follows this by [[NiceJobBreakingItHero shooting the player in the head]] so that the [[FalseFlagOperation crime can be placed]] on the {{CIA}}, thus inciting the international community against the Americans. In the third game, he single handedly starts WorldWarIII, massacring millions of people with bio weapons. In addition, it was he who ordered the nuking in the first game, as well as the one who even earlier saved Zakhaev, thus making him responsible, [[BiggerBad directly or indirectly]], for all the events of the series (including the actions of [[spoiler:[[WellIntentionedExtremist General Shepherd]]]] in the second game), leading to the deaths of several millions.
* ''VideoGame/CallOfJuarez'': [[BigBad Juan "Juarez" Mendoza]] is a ruthless Mexican bandit turned warlord. When the outlaw brothers, Thomas and Ray [=McCall=], arrive in Mexico, Juarez uses them to wipe out his rivals before betraying them to Confederate remnants they escaped from. When he bargains with an Apache tribe trying to fight the army, Juarez simply sells them defective rifles he has lying around, taking the money while letting the natives be slaughtered. Upon learning his mistress Marisa is in love with Thomas, Juarez tries to have the brothers' pacifist younger brother William killed and intends to throw Marisa into slavery in one of his brothels, sneering that she is a "lying, thieving, gold-loving whore." When Ray defeats him, Juarez resurfaces eighteen years later, hunting for a secret treasure he believes Marisa passed on to her son Billy. He kills Thomas and Marisa, lets his men rape his ex, and attempts to hunt down Billy by threatening the life of Billy's love interest Molly. When he fails to sway Billy ([[spoiler: who turns out to be his [[ArchnemesisDad own son]]]]) to his side, he attempts to [[ManOnFire burn him and Molly alive]]. At the end, when Juarez is beaten, he still manages to mortally wound Ray himself and attempts to murder Billy to the end before a dying Ray finds the strength to kill him once and for all. Brutal, greedy and treacherous, Juarez prides himself on his ability to come out on top no matter who he has to destroy.
* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'': {{Satan}} is a ManipulativeBastard, operates as TheChessmaster once he appears, and is TheManBehindTheMan to the Lords of Shadow themselves. Satan [[BigBad arranged every atrocity in the game]], from Gabriel Belmont's wife's death at Gabriel's own hands and the deaths of countless innocents, so he could set everything up to return to Heaven and take it over to [[RageAgainstTheHeavens complete his revenge on God]]. When he appears, Satan attempts to eliminate his final pawn, Zobek, and keeps the souls lost on the way [[AndIMustScream trapped in Limbo]]. Satan [[TheCorrupter corrupted]] the [[FallenHero Lords of Shadow]] into becoming the monsters they had become, also making him responsible for all the innocents the werewolves and vampires had devoured. Using Zobek as a proxy and pawn, he manipulated the entire events of the game to gain access to Heaven, with only Gabriel to stand against him at the end. When he faces off with Gabriel, he attempts to paint himself as justified, but Gabriel sees through it, declaring Satan to be the egomaniac he is who seeks domination and hatred over all things. In [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow2 the sequel]], Satan returns in the modern world, casually murdering his summoner-[[OffingTheOffspring his own son]]-for [[YouHaveFailedMe not eliminating Dracula and Alucard quick enough]]. Deciding to simply [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the world]], Satan also possesses Alucard to [[SadisticChoice force Dracula to choose between losing his life and killing his own beloved son]].
* ''VideoGame/CaveStory'': [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate The Doctor]] was initially with the research expedition to The Island, but his true purpose was to seek the [[ArtifactOfDoom Demon Crown]] and wield its power himself. He also kidnaps and performs PsychoSerum experiments on the local tribe of [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Mimigas]] in the hopes of transforming them into [[UnstoppableRage mindless monsters]] for his army [[spoiler:and is working on a project to do the same thing to humans]]. He's killed several Mimigas and many baby dragons. The dragons left alive he turned into his undead servants.
* ''Franchise/TheChroniclesOfRiddick: VideoGame/AssaultOnDarkAthena'':
** Captain Gale Revas is the commanding officer of the mercenary ship the Dark Athena. She was taken in by her current second-in-command Spinner, and joined the crew in her teens. She seduced the original captain, then had him overthrown and thrown in a cell. She refitted the ship so they would attack unsuspecting vessels and settler worlds. The planetary assaults are complete RapePillageAndBurn, with unarmed civilians being indiscriminately killed and tossed in sewers, the settlements wiped out, and the survivors harvested into mindless remote-controlled cyborgs, openly called out as a FateWorseThanDeath. The ship also functions as a slave vessel, with decks upon decks of prisons with people her mercenaries captured, locked up until they can sell them or convert them into cyborgs. She keeps the crew in line with threats of sending them to the Drone Mile (cyborg conversion) or trips to "[[TortureTechnician the Dentist]]". She personally tries to murder a child twice, and doesn't show any interest in people besides using some good-looking mercenaries as her sex toys. It's said that she grew up in the slums where she had to learn to survive, but considering her later crimes it falls a bit short as a FreudianExcuse.
** Jaylor is an utterly sadistic former member of Revas's crew who simply indulged in rape and murder to the point that he freaked out all the other mercs, before he was stripped of his rank and thrown in a cell for his crimes. The moment Riddick meets him he seems friendly until he [[FauxAffablyEvil reveals that it's just a smokescreen]]. He blackmails Riddick into killing the mercenary who turned him in to get revenge, and to retrieve one of his golden teeth so Jaylor has evidence that the guy is dead and has a [[CreepySouvenir souvenir]] of the dearly departed. Jaylor continuously expresses interest in raping a female prisoner a few cells down the line, and when Riddick refuses to "rile here up" for him, he promises that as soon as the prisoner riot starts, he'll kill her, THEN rape her. He's a necrophiliac rapist and murderer, and such a piece of complete scum that the other mercs were disgusted by him. [[spoiler:He later kills the woman in front of her little daughter, and gloats about it to Riddick before he gets killed by him.]]
* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlertSeries'':
** Joseph Stalin in the original ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' is portrayed as every bit the ruthless, paranoid dictator that he was in real life, but excludes any redeeming qualities he had and [[HistoricalVillainUpgrade makes him even nastier in some regards]]. He builds up the Soviet military machine and invades the rest of Europe to establish his totalitarian rule over the entire continent. He orders his security officers to test Sarin gas on a town of innocent civilians and the player to kill the survivors and raze the village, [[YouHaveFailedMe personally kills his lieutenants for any failure]] and orders purges of his entire military staff on a whim, and largely destroys the countries he invades as he did with Greece. When the tide of war turns against him, he uses his troops as sacrifical lambs to delay the Allied advance long enough so he can destroy the major European cities with his newly-developed nuclear missiles and force a victory.
** Yuri from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2'' is a powerful psychic and aspiring overlord initially serving the Soviet Union, but soon reveals his ulterior motives. In the Soviet campaign he supports the invasion of the United States and later the rest of the world, building devices to turn the conquered peoples into mind-controlled drones. He assassinates Premier Romanov and frames General Vladimir to usurp the Soviet leadership, before attempting to kill the player because his continued succes has made him a potential threat to Yuri's position. ''Yuri's Revenge'' reveals that he was just using the Soviets to establish a network of mind control devices to enslave the planet, so there will be no will but his own. His subsequent plots include harvesting the entire population of Los Angeles for raw materials, holding a software company ransom and nuking Seattle until they give in, secretly assassinating world leaders and replacing them with clones, and planning to level all coastal cities in the world. Throw in the fact that his army uses slaves to mine their ore, genetically alters soldiers and civilians alike into obedient, mutated freaks, grinds up civilians, captured enemies, and his own units for spare parts or drains them for bioelectricity, and is built around mind controlling his adversaries, and it becomes clear that we are dealing with a very, ''very'' bad man.
* ''VideoGame/{{Condemned}}'' has Serial Killer X, aka [[spoiler: Leland Vanhorn]]. Any sympathy he may have had as a SerialKillerKiller is undermined by the various innocents he kills. He even murders [[spoiler: his own uncle]] after the latter [[TheFarmerAndTheViper nursed him back to health]] after the events of the first game. The only reason he kills other serial killers in the first place is so he can adopt their methods as his own. He also doesn't have the excuse of being driven insane by [[spoiler: the Oro's sonic emitters]] like the rest of the city, [[ForTheEvulz as he clearly enjoys it]].

[[folder:D - F]]
* ''VideoGame/TheDarkness'': [[BigBad Paulie]] [[TheDon Franchetti]] adopted the protagonist of the game, Jackie Estacado, so he could mold him into a hitman loyal to the family. The game starts with him sending Jackie on a suicide mission to kill a business rival because Jackie started questioning the way he does business, but he has already killed the business rival and strapped his corpse full of explosives as a birthday present, leaving a tape to mock Jackie before he died. When Jackie survives the blast, Paulie gets revenge by blowing up the Orphanage that Jackie grew up in, killing all the orphans and nuns inside and then telling Jackie over the phone it was all his fault. [[spoiler: When Jackie starts to ruin Paulie's business dealings in retaliation he kidnaps Jackie's girlfriend Jenny, brings her to the Orphanage and then murderers her right in front of Jackie, blaming it all on Jackie for not blindly following orders.]] Even at the end he shows no remorse for his crimes, telling Jackie [[spoiler:that Jenny was a weakness and Jackie shouldn't have cared about her death.]]
* ''VideoGame/DeadIsland'': [[BigBad Charon]], aka [[spoiler: Kevin]], is nothing but a heartless monster. An international [[PsychoForHire hacker-for-hire]], Charon is wanted for willingly working with every terrorist and criminal organization, from Al-Qaeda to the Yakuza. During the zombie outbreak on Banoi, Charon intends to take a sample of the zombie virus and get rich by selling it as a bio-weapon. He [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates the immune protagonists]] against [[AntiHero Colonel Ryder White]], which gets White killed, and convinces them to obtain a bio-eningeered super-potent strain of the virus. As it turns out, Charon also manipulated Ryder into betraying his country, using his infected wife as leverage, and after betraying Ryder, states that he should have killed him when he had the chance. When Dr. West insists on creating a cure for the virus, Charon kills him. Driven by {{greed}} and his indifference to human life, Charon cares not for the millions he puts in danger in the pursuit of money.
* ''VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition'': [[spoiler:Forrest Kaysen]], the real BigBad, manipulated the Raincoat Killer and Thomas into turning evil by exploiting their traumatic pasts, and he's also the one who orchestrated the military experiment 50 years ago that sparked the whole mess. He deliberately spread the rumors about the immortality granting Red Seeds, directly causing mass murders throughout the country, including the ones in Greenvale. And finally, there's his sickening "red tree saplings", which grow inside of young women (and its heavily implied that he "implants" the saplings in them by raping them''), and when they fully sprout, the woman completely withers into a dissected husk. Finally, when his latest target withers right in front of her husband, he laughs maniacally about it, even after the husband 'ommits suicide. And when he realized that their son had seen all this, he attacks the boy, scarring him and trapping him inside a dreamworld for almost his entire life. His motivation for all of his crimes is because he was bored.
* From the ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' series, we should remember [[HumansAreBastards how terrible some psychopaths can be even in the midst]] of a zombie outbreak:
** ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'': Tyrone "TK" King is the host and producer of the controversial reality show Terror Is Reality where contestants slaughter zombies for sport. TK eventually allows his zombies to run rampant in the city to create an outbreak and frames TheHero Chuck Greene for it, so TK could rob the casinos' now empty vaults. After suffering a zombie bite of his own, TK begs Chuck for a shot of the zombie virus suppressing drug Zombrex. When Chuck complies, TK [[UngratefulBastard repays him by holding Chuck's daughter and friend hostage]] and tries to lower them to be devoured by zombies while trying to kill Chuck himself.
** ''VideoGame/DeadRising3'': Albert Contiello is a sadistic surgeon who represents the sin of {{Greed}}. While most of the Psychopaths have lost their minds amidst the outbreak, Albert is fully sane and looking to make money. During the outbreak, Albert takes to abducting survivors and begins performing surgery on them without anesthetic to harvest their organs for the black market. When he captures the game's hero Nick Ramos, Albert injects him with a hallucinogen that makes him hallucinate everyone around as Albert, putting other innocent survivors at risk. A cruel MadDoctor with no motivation but greed, Albert is fully willing to butcher whoever crosses his path for an extra buck.
* ''{{VideoGame/Def Jam|Series}}: Fight for NY'': The {{smug|Snake}} [[Music/SnoopDogg Crow]] is a [[BigBad leader]] of a crime syndicate based in [[NamestoRunAwayFromReallyFast Club Murder]] in Washington Heights in Manhattan who threatens to take over D-Mob's clubs in his hunger for control of New York's underbelly. Crow is also a [[BadBoss terrible boss]] who mocks his own foot soldiers and sends them into suicidal situations. After the PlayerCharacter defeats [[TheDragon Crack]] in a "Winner Takes All" match, Crow orders three of his men to attack D-Mob's limo in a drive-by, leading to a fight where the PC could potentially kill [[TheBrute his brute]] Creator/DannyTrejo. A kingpin whose personal philosophy is "ride or get rolled on," Crow is also not above {{blackmail}} or hostage-taking, as seen when he kidnaps the PC's girlfriend and mockingly shows a snip of her hair to [[FaceHeelTurn force the player to work for him]]. After effectively tarnishing the PC's friendships and reputation, Crow tries to manipulate the PC into killing his last remaining friend Blaze as a final task. When the PC saves Blaze, Crow's other dragon [[Music/BustaRhymes Magic]] reveals that Crow never planned to keep the PC's girlfriend alive and that he ordered Sticky Fingaz to incinerate the building the PC’s girlfriend is kept in. After her presumed death, the player confronts Crow, where he sees [[EvenEvilHasStandards Crow's followers]] [[HeelFaceTurn walking out on him]]. After the player declares that killing him isn’t worth it, Crow stabs him and forces him into a fight to the death. In the end, Crow is nothing but a DirtyCoward who values brute force, deception, and intimidation.
* ''VideoGame/DeptHeaven'' series: Hector was the BiggerBad until later in the series. To fulfill [[AGodAmI his scheme of becoming the true creator]], this [[PhysicalGod already god-like being]] was responsible for almost every calamity throughout the series. His most heinous crimes include being responsible for the horrific torture of [[YggdraUnion Nessiah]], who had been an ActualPacifist FallenAngel, solely out of hatred for Nessiah's pacifism. He was also responsible for driving the Archangel [[VideoGame/KnightsInTheNightmare Marietta]] into insanity and using [[YouAreNumberSix people as test subjects for divine weapons]]. Hector sacrificed his own servant and the hero [[VideoGame/RivieraThePromisedLand Ein's]] girlfriend to awaken the spirit of destruction for the final phase in his plan: [[OmnicidalManiac slaughtering the entire population of one world.]]
* ''VideoGame/DeusEx'': Bob Page is a former member of the Council of Five (the ruling body of TheIlluminati) and a protege of the leader Morgan Everett. Consumed with a lust for power, Page abandoned the Illuminati to strike out on his own. He invented [[TheVirus a nanovirus via robots]] to kill as many people as possible and shows [[YouHaveFailedMe a willingness to have any failures eliminated]]. Page would even use nuclear weapons to get his way, in his plan to throw the world into chaos to pave the way for him as a messiah and a world leader. His ultimate goal was to merge with AI Helios and [[AGodAmI become as a God]], declaring "Let it spill over into the schools and churches, let the bodies pile up in the streets. In the end, they'll beg us to save them."
* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 3'': Arkham, initially TheDragon to [[CainAndAbel Dante's brother Vergil]], is revealed as a sinister, power-hungry man who sacrificed his own wife to become a devil himself. Arkham manipulates everyone to lure them into a battle resulting in Dante, Vergil and Arkham's own daughter Lady weakened enough for Arkham to step in and seize the power of Sparda for himself. Arkham has no compunction brutalizing Lady or trying to kill her. When he unlocks the power of Sparda, Arkham plans to, as he puts it, "welcome Chaos" all through the world. When Lady confronts him at the game's end, Arkham angrily demands to know what he's done wrong, declaring he [[AGodAmI wanted to be a God]] and for that he had sacrificed just "one miserable human life, that's all! [[ItsAllAboutMe Was that really so awful!?]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' series:
** [[SinisterMinister Archbishop Lazarus]] was a prominent figure in both the original ''Diablo'' and is mentioned in the first act of ''VideoGame/DiabloIII''. He played an integral role in King Leoric's descent into madness and eventual transformation into the Skeleton King, as well as manipulating him into torturing and executing many innocents in the guise of "protecting his kingdom" (up to and including [[spoiler:his own queen]]), feeding Tristram's villagers and the odd adventurer to the demonic Butcher in the first game, and having Albrecht, one of Leoric's two sons, made a vessel for Diablo himself.
** Adria from ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' pledged herself to Diablo's service since first meeting Prince Aidan of Tristran after he imprisoned Diablo's soul within himself and became the Dark Wanderer, spending the time between the first and third games gathering up the power of the other Lords of Hell so she could use the Black Soulstone to bring about Diablo's rebirth in the body of her own daughter, an act that in the setting would [[spoiler:damn Leah's soul to hell]]. Adria manipulated her daughter and all of her friends with the express purpose of inserting the Black Soulstone in her chest and allowing Diablo to devour her from within, manifesting anew to destroy the High Heavens and humanity as the Prime Evil.
* ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'': [[BitchInSheepsClothing Serph Sheffield]], when placed in charge of the Karma Society's God Project, began using everyone and anything around him in his quest to [[AGodAmI attain the power of God for himself]]. He uses Sera's growing love for him to push her PsychicPowers into further maturation, only to express disgust at Sera'a creation of a virtual paradise consisting of [=AIs=] she uses to escape the pain of his experiments. When Colonel Beck proposed to change Sera's paradise into a training simulation for creating stronger [=AIs=], Serph overrides Heat O'Brien's warning against destroying Sera's mental condition and tells Beck to proceed. After a desperate Heat pulls a gun and demands the project to stop, Serph tells Heat that a human's mind is no different than a machine, and that each of the subjects, including Sera, [[WeHaveReserves was expendable and could be replaced]], before manipulating Argilla into killing Heat. After being turned into a demon by a heartbroken Sera sending a massive data surge into the now black Sun, Serph goes on a killing spree starting with Beck and Argilla before being killed offscreen. Refusing to accept that he is dead, he re-appears at the EGG facility as Solar Data and tries to kill the [=AI=] Serph and Heat while proclaiming to have the power of God. A cruel and manipulative young man,his actions are largely responsible for the disasters plaguing the series.
* ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'': The [[BigBad Demon God, Demigra]], was [[SealedEvilInACan imprisoned in a crack in time]] by his ArchEnemy, the [[BigGood Supreme Kai of Time]]. To free himself, he sends out an image capable of acting on the physical plane to [[TheChessmaster cause chaos and distort time]]. One of the timelines has him [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing Piccolo]] into [[WouldHurtAChild trying to kill Goten and Trunks]]. Another has him trying to brainwash [[PhysicalGod Beerus]] into destroying Earth. After his release, he plans to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the universe]] and [[AGodAmI reshape it]] so that [[ItsAllAboutMe everything revolves around him]].
* ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' series:
** ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'': Bishop Ladja, despite only being TheDragon, becomes one of the vilest characters in the series in [[UpdatedRerelease the DS remake]]. He specializes in committing an even more horrific atrocity than his last in most of his appearances. His first scene alone has him brutally beating the hero and Harry ([[WouldHurtAChild who are six years old at the time]]) to within an inch of their lives, laughing sadistically all the while. Then, when the hero's father, Pankraz, arrives to save the day, he threatens to murder the hero if Pankraz tries to fight back against his enforcers. After the enforcers are done beating him, Ladja coldly finishes off the dying Pankraz with a giant fireball, then carts the hero and Harry off to a brutal slave labor camp for over ten years. He's also at least somewhat successful at being TheStarscream, killing off one person ahead of him (King Korol) in the chain of command for the power. Finally, he makes sure to wait until the main character reunites with his mother (after over 18 years apart) to kill said mother, just for maximum emotional impact.
** ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'': The [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Archfiend]], [[BigBad Lord Mortamor]], unlike the other villains, doesn't simply want to destroy/conquer the world; he wants to completely and utterly [[DespairEventHorizon destroy the very concept of hope]]. To this end, he effectively turns his own world, which he rules, into a giant concentration camp where his subjects are routinely abused, manipulated, tortured, and slaughtered like animals. Those few who manage to resist his soul-crushing ways are instead shipped off to a special prison where they are starved, tortured, and ultimately executed hundreds at a time. One sample act to show how he goes about destroying the spirits of people is manipulating a town to kill each other over a treasure chest he planted in an elderly woman's house. Possibly the worst part is that Mortamor wasn't satisfied even after the slaughter. No, instead, he rewinds time to right before the massacre and starts the whole thing over again. The people of Greedmore, until the party's intervention, have been unknowingly trapped in [[StableTimeLoop an endless cycle of deceit, death, and rebirth]], all because Mortamor loves watching his subjects suffer.
** ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'': [[BigBad Rhapthorne]] is one of the most repulsive villains in the series. While the characters aren't initially aware of it, Rhapthorne is present from the beginning to the end, actively causing all the calamities in the game. His most heinous acts include turning the residents of the castle Trodian into [[AndIMustScream immobile plant people]], killing the kind old woman in cold blood (after forcing her to come out by holding her son hostage), and ordering the murder of an unborn child of the Godbird Empryea. He also did most of his work by performing GrandTheftMe, which trapped the victims of that into [[AndIMustScream mental torture]].
* ''[[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Elder Scrolls]]'' series:
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'': [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Akorithi]] of Sentinel, like her late husband King Cameron, was a warmonger. Their designated-heir son was chronically ill and fairly uninterested in invading neighboring countries for their land, the latter of which was the kind of thing his parents liked doing when they could get away with it. Not only did they produce some more children and partially disinherited him, his interest in scholarly pursuits hit King Cameron's BerserkButton, so he and Akorithi [[OffingTheOffspring murdered him]] by tossing him into a dungeon full of zombies and mummies just after a bad bout of the flu. By the end of ''Daggerfall'', Queen Akorithi has used the power of the Numidium to conquer Bergama as well as the whole of northern Hammerfall.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'': [[BigBad Mankar Camoran]], the leader of the Mythic Dawn {{cult}} and a worshipper of [[OmnicidalManiac Mehrunes Dagon]] plans to summon his master into Tamriel so Dagon may destroy the world and create a new one in its place, one that coheres with Camoran’s [[SocialDarwinism Social Darwinist beliefs]]. Not only does Mankar aide Dagon’s Daedra in attacking the mortal world, he also orchestrates the assassination of Emperor Uriel Septim, as well as his children. He even had the city of Kvatch completely destroyed in a failed attempt to kill Uriel’s bastard son, Martin. While Mankor lures in his followers with promises of a paradise for their faithful service, this turns out to be a lie. Seemingly idyllic on the surface, Dawn’s Beauty, Mankar’s “paradise,” is really a hell where his followers are constantly killed by monsters, only to be resurrected and killed over and over again. His promise to allow any follower who loses faith to leave his paradise also proves false, as the grotto, which is said to be an exit from the afterlife, really leads to a torture chamber where the unfaithful are [[AndIMustScream made immortal, locked into gibbets, and then dumped into lava]]. One follower who lost faith was forced by Camoran into inflicting this punishment on his friends over and over again. Dawn’s Beauty is said to be Mankar’s vision of how he believes the world will be once Dagon takes over.
** Mannimarco, the King of Worms and the leader of the Order of the Black Worm, first appears in ''Daggerfall'', then appears again as the ArcVillain of the Mages’ Guild quest line in ''Oblivion''. An incredibly powerful necromancer and the world's first lich, Mannimarco’s study into the arts of entrapping and enslaving souls festered in him a deep hatred for peace and life. A sadist believing himself AboveGoodAndEvil, Mannimarco sought out obtaining as much magical and political power as he could over the passing millennia. Sometimes this power was obtained via [[DealWithTheDevil Faustian deals]]; in at least one instance he helped a princess arrange a political marriage in exchange for her firstborn child. After achieving godhood at the end of ''Daggerfall'', a mortal part of Mannimarco was left behind, and decided to settle a petty grudge with a long-dead enemy by destroying the Mages’ Guild said enemy founded. Mannimarco became invested in creating black soul gems, which he used to [[YourSoulIsMine steal the souls of those who opposed him]], and plotted to capture the soul of Archmage Hannibal Traven to empower himself. [[AndIMustScream The souls captured are aware while in the gems]], and, once their power is used up, they are sent to a purgatory-like dimension called the Soul Cairn for all eternity. When a mage infiltrated his order, he had the mage tortured to death and then resurrected the mage as a zombie to be an example to the Guild. Mannimarco also took great pleasure in leading the attack on the Bruma Mages’ Guild chapter, slaughtering everyone present save for one mage whom he kept alive to tell tale of what happened in Bruma.
* ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness'': Pious Augustus is TheDragon to an [[EldritchAbomination ancient evil god]] (you can choose from three), but he is the main antagonist. When you first see him, he is a playable character, a Roman legionnaire who stumbled on an ancient temple in Persia. In the end, he is corrupted by one of three artifacts and serves that god. It is not known when he crosses the MoralEventHorizon, but he is clearly over it for the rest of the game, committing horrific acts gleefully, including throwing hundreds of innocent people into a tower of corpses during Roberto Bianci's scenario (him included). He kills other characters you play as as well. It is also implied in one cutscene that he may intend to betray his god in the future (during the Xel'latoth arc).
* ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'' series:
** [[BigBad Jack of Blades]] from the [[VideoGame/FableI first game]] is an ancient being who lives through the mask he wears and [[DemonicPossession possesses]] the luckless men who wear it In the past, Jack of Blades led the burning of the kingdom of Albion for refusing to bow before him and his comrades. He burnt the home of the first game's Hero and ruthlessly blinded his sister, later killing their mother as well. Ruthless, vicious and cruel, Jack would set the standard for Fables villains to follow.
** Reaver, in the [[VideoGame/FableII second game]], manages to double cross the main character at least twice and was revealed to be the person responsible for the destruction of Oakvale, though he actually regretted that action in the past (key emphasis on the past tense in that statement). In the [[VideoGame/FableIII third game]] he [[CorruptCorporateExecutive controls the Bowerstone industrial sector]], which he forces children to work in factories and shoots workers who slow or grow tired, protest, or break some unannounced rule he has yet to think up. He also acts as an advisor to the king in which his suggestions will be something along the lines of deforestation and tearing down a school to make room for a whorehouse.
** The monstrous Crawler of the [[VideoGame/FableIII third game]] is seen {{Mind Rap|e}}ing the hero's ally Walter when it first appears before attempting to do the same to the hero. It then forces Walter to relive traumatic memories and reveals it is responsible for an utter massacre in Aurora. When the Crawler attacks Albion, it can murder over six million people if the city isn't fortified enough and [[DemonicPossession possesses Walter as a host]]. The Crawler, while an EldritchAbomination, operates entirely by human morality and has an all too understandable personality.
* ''VideoGame/FarCry3'': [[BiggerBad Hoyt Volker]] is the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive boss]] of the biggest slave-trading ring in the South-Pacific. He's described as the root of all the evil happening on the island, and is responsible for [[TheCorrupter manipulating Vaas with drugs]] into becoming a madman. In his first appearance, he gleefully forces a small group of innocent civilians to run across an active minefield. The second time we see him, he [[ManOnFire burns one]] of [[BadBoss his own men]] alive and tells the rest of his privateers to kill any island native they see on sight. Finally, during a poker game, he kills [[spoiler: Jason's friend Sam]] and threatens to cut off one of [[PlayerCharacter Jason's]] [[{{fingore}} fingers]] every time he loses a round, [[spoiler: a threat that he makes good on]]. Volker may [[FauxAffablyEvil seem pleasant]], but is in fact an utterly psychotic {{sadist}} without a single redeeming quality.
* ''VideoGame/FarCry3BloodDragon'': In this post-apocalyptic timeline, [[BigBad Colonel Ike Sloan]] was the leader of [[{{Cyborg}} cybernetically enhanced soldiers]], and the [[FallenHero ideal hero]], but upon learning that America and the Communists are making a peace agreement, he goes rogue with his soldiers. Enhancing himself with the Blood of the Blood Dragons, Sloan considered himself the [[SocialDarwinist strongest and best suited to be leader]]. He plots to use the blood to enhance nukes which he'll launch all over the worlds, resulting in a new apocalypse and then he’ll build a world where [[MightMakesRight the strong rule over the weak]], with him as supreme leader. When he first encounters two of his former soldiers, [[PlayerCharacter Sergeant Rex "Power" Colt]] and [[BlackBestFriend Lieutenant T.T. "Spider" Brown]], he [[BlackDudeDiesFirst kills Spider]] and later praises Rex for killing some of his men, as he sees it as culling out his weaker soldiers.
* ''VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon'': [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Genevieve Aristide]] is responsible for the events of the first game, opening up the vault despite the head of that project telling her what a horrible idea it was. When Alma's mental ghost manages to break Paxton Fettel out, her main priority is to cover up Armacham's involvement in the whole affair, ordering their security teams to kill one of her own employees who knew too much. In the second game, it's discovered she also authorized two more unethical Projects; Harbinger which tried to take sick individuals and transform them into another Psychic Commander, but only survived to [[BodyHorror twist them into monstrous forms]]. The other was Project: Paragon, which involved taking children with promising mental and physical attributes and enrolling them in a fake elementary school, where they would be fed chemicals to grant them psychic powers and sedatives so they could be taken to an underground lab, all in the hopes of finding future candidates for Harbinger. And when all of these projects blow up in her face and result in the entire city being devastated by a massive explosion and Alma's psychic outbursts, her main priority is capturing Alma so she can maintain her position in Armacham, [[spoiler: sacrificing Beckett to be raped by Alma and killing Stokes to prevent her from interfering.]]
* ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'': [[BigBad Lord Arktivus Brevon]], an alien GalacticConqueror, conquered hundreds of worlds, killed and corrupted thousands of heroes. During the events of Freedom Planet he is trying to steal a power artifact known as the Kingdon Stone, which the primary source of power of Avalice. He [[EstablishingCharacterMoment opens the game]] by [[OffWithHisHead beheading the King of Shuigang]] in front of his son, and then brainwashing that son into his own loyal puppet. He then uses his influence over Shuigang to increase tensions between the Three Kingdoms of Avalice and provoke an energy crisis in Shang Mu, eventually leading to him obtaining the Kingdom Stone. After Brevon captures [[TheHero Lilac]] when she attempted to rescue Torque and the Kingdom Stone, he proceeds to [[ColdBloodedTorture mercilessly torture her]], through a combination of wounds (including cutting off her PrehensileHair), ElectricTorture, and {{Breaking Speech}}es.; the electric torture and effects of the wounds are seen on-screen. His worst actions come when the main characters invade his battleship as it prepares to fly into space. Brevon's initial tactics include opening the airlocks, [[BadBoss forcing his own loyal general]] Serpentine into a [[TransformationTrauma painful transformation]] to better fight you, and turning off the atmosphere in his ship. His most despicable act involves using the [[BreakTheCutie naive and innocent Milla as a hostage at knife-point]] to prevent the main characters from recovering the Kingdom Stone, then forcing the previously mentioned transformation to [[BrainwashedAndCrazy turn Milla into a monster and forcing the characters to fight their friend]]. Brevon [[KnightOfCerebus really stands out]] in an [[VileVillainSaccharineShow otherwise-lighthearted]] game.
* ''VideoGame/FrontMission'': Driscoll of the first game is a ruthless commander who makes an enemy of TheHero Clevain by seemingly killing his fiancee in front of him and setting off a massive explosion to frame him for it. When he reappears later, Driscoll attempts to destroy civilian areas to recreate this disaster and reveals he is behind a scheme to make the current battle mechs, The Wanzers, obsolete- by forcing [=POWs=] to be forcibly mechanized and trapping their brains as digital computers for warfare.

* ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' series: [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]] [[BigBad Myrrah]] starts a war with the human race on Sera just [[KickTheDog six weeks after the Pendulum Wars-a 79 year old conflict ended]]. [[MoralEventHorizon She orders the deaths of every man, woman, and child on the surface]] so the Locust can colonize, enslaving the human stragglers and ''lobotomizing'' them [[spoiler: as Dom found out what happened to his wife Maria]]. She immediately turned down the diplomatic option when the [[TheVirus Lambent]] wore down her forces underground, saying that the best thing to do is [[KillEmAll kill every human being]] instead of focusing on the lambent. These actions caused ''billions'' of human deaths on Sera, forcing COG to use the [[KillSat Hammer of Dawn]] to scorch the earth so much it's an Apocalyptic World. [[spoiler:Finally, after she loses at the end of ''Gears of War 3'', with both Lambent and Locust going extinct due to Adam Fenix's invention she [[KickTheDog mocks Marcus]] on his father's HeroicSacrifice to stop the Lambent.]]
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'': Though ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' has a villainous roster comprised by mostly [[AntiVillain villains with redeeming qualities]], this cannot be said for ''Dark Dawn's'' [[BigBadDuumvirate Blados and Chalis]]. Agents of the military country Tuaparang, Blados starts by [[WouldHurtAChild kidnapping a child]] and isolating him from his master, while Chalis secretly manipulates Kaocho's king from behind the scenes. The two partake in a scheme to activate the [[TheNightThatNeverEnds Grave Eclipse]], shrouding most of the continent in darkness and unleashing dark beasts on the innocent populace, leading to the death of thousands.

They proceed to turn Volechek (the brother of playable character Sveta) into a horrific beast and attempt to use him to fire the Apollo Lens on their own allies, killing Volechek in the process. Both are nasty in their own right, with [[BloodKnight Blados]] doing it [[ForTheEvulz for fun]], and Chalis seeking [[ItsAllAboutMe more personal motives]], up to [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder betraying her own partner]]. Cunning, manipulative, and seeing the deaths of thousands as a mere side-effect of the plan, Blados and Chalis are two of the worst villains ''Golden Sun'' has.
* ''VideoGame/{{Gothic}}'': The whole series has a pretty [[DarkerandEdgier sinister tone]] in itself, with [[UpToEleven A LOT]] of {{Jerkass}} characters, [[AlwaysChaoticEvil cutthroat bandits]], crazy cultists and [[CrapsackWorld MUCH more]] to offer. However, Bloodwyn, the greedy guardsman from the Old Camp, stands out in particular. The first thing he does to newcomers is [[FauxAffablyEvil asking "kindly" for protection money]]. Unlike the other guardsmen however, he won't just leave you on your own if you refuse. He'll send his henchmen after you to beat you to a bloody pulp, and sometimes even kill you. Also, (although granted, he was ordered) he participates in cowardly murdering the Firemages later in the game. When the Hero, not knowing that he has done something to upset somebody, returns to the camp afterwards, Bloodwyn and his mooks try to murder him in cold blood. However, he truly hits the {{Moral Event Horizon}} in the ''Gothic 2'' ExpansionPack, ''Night of the Raven''. Joining the bandits and put in charge of the mine, he mercilessly forces the slaves to work without any breaks, and when they stumble upon some angry Minecrawlers and later even [[LivingStatue cursed guardians]], he doesn't care one bit. By the time the Hero arrives, many slaves are already deceased, either killed by the creatures, worked to death, or starved, because they get nothing but rubbish to eat. Others are so exhausted they can barely stand and some are already hallucinating, because they haven't seen the sun for weeks. After the (disguised) Hero does the dirty work of killing all the vermin inside the mine for him, [[UngratefulBastard Bloodwyn doesn't even attempt to thank, let alone pay him for his actions]], instead trying to get rid of him so that [[ItsAllAboutMe he alone can get all the gold inside]].
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoLibertyCityStories'': [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Donald Love]] somehow manages to reach a special level of evil despite living in a Crapsack World populated with gangsters, [[SerialKiller serial killers]], and [[AxCrazy psychopaths]]. Introduced in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'', and having a cameo in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'', Love at first seems fairly standard for the series, arranging a gang war between TheYakuza and TheCartel just to lower property values. Though, at the time it was hinted he had [[ImAHumanitarian more sinister appetites]]. This is eventually confirmed in this game, where he's shown feasting on corpses and sending Toni Cipriani to collect bodies for him to devour. Aligning himself with [[TheMafia the Leone crime family]], Love runs in the race for mayor, sending Toni Cipriani out to murder his rival's campaigners. Losing his fortune in his failed campaign, Love makes plans to regain his fortune, with his first step being to [[BastardUnderstudy murder his mentor]], real-estate tycoon Avery Carrington, in order to steal his city development plans. He then has Toni recover Carrington's body to cannibalize later. Love's worst crime, however, is masterminding the deaths of thousands of people through the bombing of the heavily-populated Fort Staunton city district, just so he can make money off of redeveloping the district. A thoroughly depraved man, Love would stoop to any low imaginable to [[{{Greed}} fill his pockets]] or [[ItsAllAboutMe glorify his ego]].

Meanwhile, the righteous souls Hector stole them from are left to wander the Land of the Dead until they're eventually kidnapped while traversing the ocean and sent to the coral mining factory owned by Hector at the Edge of the World to be eternally enslaved so as to prevent Hector's misdeeds from coming to life. The most evil thing Hector has done is the commission of sprouting, a way to [[CessationOfExistence permanently kill those already dead]]; the sprouting involves pecial plant bullets that are fired into the skeletal body, growing and spreading until the victim is completely overrun and is nothing more than an empty husk filled with flowers. Hector as capitalized on this, murdering hundreds, keeping their bodies as a field of flowers [[AtopAMountainOfCorpses upon which he builds his hideout upon]], and even has a greenhouse where preserves the corpses of his victims and tends to them as trophies of all who dare cross him. By the game's end he has Salvador's body sprouted and his head removed for questioning and shoots Manny with a slow-acting Sproutella which will keep him alive in agony for hours before eventually killing him. Despite all the pain and misery he's caused in the Land of the Dead, Hector doesn't care, as he merely wants to live like a king before using the stolen tickets to bribe his way into heaven.
* ''VideoGame/{{GUN}}'':
** [[BigBad Colonel Thomas Magruder]] is feverishly seeking a legendary lost city of gold called Quivira, and murders or tortures anyone who gets in his way. His defining moment came in a flashback to years before the events of the game, when he came to a small homestead out in the plains belonging to a benevolent doctor who helped the nearby Apaches. When the Apache chief tells Magruder that his lust for the treasure will lead to his doom, he coldly shoots him, then beheads the doctor. When one of his own soldiers protests his actions, Magruder shoots him, too. In present, Magruder simply attempts to wipe out the Apaches and whoever else he deems an obstacle to his hunt for gold. Magruder is a man singularly devoted to satisfying his own {{greed}}, no matter who gets in the way.
** Magruder's [[TheDragon right hand man]], [[SinisterMinister "Reverend" Josiah Reed]], is a monster in his own right. Reed initiates a massacre at the game's beginning on a steamboat that takes the life of the hero Colton White's adoptive father Ned. When a prostitute named Sady refuses to give Reed answers, he throws a hatchet into her head and has the entire crew massacred. Reed is revealed to be an unhinged lunatic, every bit as bad as his violent boss. When he captures a [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold prostitute named Jenny]], Reed pointlessly slits her throat to let her die in front of Colton.
* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'':
** The Prophet of Truth, Ord Casto, was one of the {{Big Bad}}s of the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series and instigator of the attempted genocide of two species. After finding out that humans were the descendants of Forerunners, thus violating Covenant doctrine, Truth, along with his cohorts Mercy and Regret, decided to wipe out humanity rather than risk their species losing power. While originally more concerned with personal power instead of the Covenant religion, as time went on Truth became more and more devoted to the idea of procuring [[AGodAmI godhood for himself]] through [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence the Great Journey]], and took more drastic steps to make it a reality. Believing the Jiralhane (Brutes) to be more vicious and mindlessly-devoted pawns than the Sangheili (Elites), Truth secretly ordered the genocide of the Sangheili race after ensuring the Jiralhane supplanted them. This triggered the Covenant Civil War. Cold-blooded and ruthless, Truth felt no loyalty or affection for his fellow Prophets. Truth prevented Covenant forces from saving Regret in order to use Regret's death for political gain, and allowed Mercy to die by the parasitic Flood for no reason at all. Even when having evidence that the Halo Rings were not devices to procure godhood but were instead weapons of mass destruction, Truth decided to activate all of them anyway, willing to risk the death of all life in the galaxy just to have the chance to become a god.
** Police Commissioner Kinsler is a brutal thug and DirtyCop who took advantage of the chaos caused by the Covenant's invasion of New Mombasa to carry out his crimes without repercussion. The first time Sadie encounters him, Kinsler reveals his intention to rape and kill her. When Sadie escaped from him with the help of Kinsler's driver, Mike Branley, Kinsler swore revenge on both of them. After Vergil, a subroutine of the AI that maintained New Mombasa's infrastructure, prevents Kinsler from killing Branley and recapturing Sadie, Kinsler responds by shutting the AI down. This has the effect of grinding New Mombasa's evacuation to a hault and causing many unnecessary deaths. Kinsler's final attempt to capture Sadie has him [[ScarpiaUltimatum threatening to murder her father if Sadie doesn't willingly turn herself in]]. When Sadie arrives at Kinsler's private train car, Kinsler's having his corrupt officers fire into the crowd of panicked refugees to prevent them from escaping on his train. Once Sadie's in his clutches, Kinsler reveals that he already murdered her father by flooding his lab with argon and then tries to have his way with her again.
* ''VideoGame/{{Hatred}}'': [[VillainProtagonist The Crusader]] (aka "[[AscendedFanon Not Important]]") is a rare case of the PlayerCharacter qualifying as an example, due to [[ButThouMust there not being]] an [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption alternate path]]. He is a [[AxCrazy psychotic]] everyman whose [[MisanthropeSupreme disgust for the human race]] and [[DeathSeeker desire to die violently]] drive him to commit a "[[KillEmAll genocide crusade]]." Starting off by killing a drugged hostage in his basement, he then goes on a shooting spree and kills hundreds of innocent civilians and [[CopKiller cops]] while enacting his plan to go to a nuclear power plant and [[NukeEm cause a meltdown]].

He attempts to do this on Madison Page, and a Jehovah's witness [[DisproportionateRetribution because the man wouldn't stop pestering him.]] He isn't exactly averse to a spot of ColdBloodedTorture before he kills his victims: with Madison, he acts friendly enough, but when she's in his clutches he begins attempting to torture her with a power drill.
** Leland White, [[TaxidermyIsCreepy The Taxidermist]] in the DLC of the same name kills young women before stuffing them and displaying them around his house. If Madison attracts his attention during her escape he shows pure sadistic glee in hunting her down while taunting her about how he’s going to add her to his collection. When Madison first uncovers the inside of his home, she's rightly horrified to discover just how many women he's murdered and made part of sick little tableaus.
* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic IV'': [[FallenHero Kalibarr]], once TheMentor to Gauldoth, got separated from him, but Gauldoth frees Kalibarr from prison years later.

* ''VideoGame/{{Ico}}'': [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen The Queen]] has been emotionally abusing her own daughter for Yorda's entire life, imprisoning her in a small cage hanging from a ceiling. (which was actually considered a form of torture in the medieaval ages). As well as manipulating Yorda into thinking that she'll die if she ever leaves the castle, effectively breaking her spirit. (it's implied that this is the reason Yorda is so passive during the game, it's not because she's weak, it's because she's broken. Then there's the fact that she's been manipulating a village into sacrificing their children. (said sacrifice involves sealing those children inside of coffins until they die). And it's implied that she controls their spirits as her servants.
* ''VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream'': AM from both Creator/HarlanEllison's short story and the point and click game is [[AIIsACrapshoot a sentient master-computer]] [[KillAllHumans who's already wiped out most of the human race]] before the story even begins, keeping five people alive for 109 years for him to torture physically and psychologically until the end of time.

In addition to all that, he also planned on selling the Vermaak as personal soldiers to major powers around the world. This man nearly started an arms race which might have sparked another World War, tugging the strings the whole time. He never fully seems to realize how terrible a monster he's become. His KarmicTransformation is completely lost on him, despite the fact that the only power he unlocked through the murder of hundreds of innocents being the transformation into a ravenous monster; the only conclusion he draws from this is that [[InsaneTrollLogic if he has become a monster through the activation of his Conduit powers, then all Conduits are monsters, and must be exterminated]].
* ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'': SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is as bad as ever. In fact, he is the reason Superman adopts a zero tolerance policy on crime, as he places a detonator in the pregnant Lois Lane, set to trigger a nuke in Metropolis the moment her heart stops, and then uses a Kryptonite-laced version of Scarecrow's fear toxin to trick Superman into seeing Doomsday, so that the deaths of Lois and the millions in Metropolis are on Superman's hands.

Prior to the game he orchestrated the genocide of the spirit monks, the protectors of the Water Dragon, the goddess in charge of rain and reincarnation. Ostensibly he did this to force the Water Dragon to save his empire from a drought, but in reality his plan was to [[CainAndAbel kill his brother, Emperor Sun Hai]], and take the power of the Water Dragon for himself, [[AGodAmI becoming a god]].

He raised the last Spirit Monk since infancy as a [=son/daughter=], but kills [=him/her=] without a second thought after [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness s/he had outlived his/her usefulness]]; and he has no problem with [[OffingTheOffspring trying to kill his birth daughter]], [[spoiler:Dawn Star]], either. While he tries to paint himself as a WellIntentionedExtremist, he's obviously lying to save himself, and, [[TheBadGuyWins in the ending where he wins]], his "utopia" is nothing more than an [[{{Dystopia}} Orwellian dictatorship]] where [[AGodAmI everyone blindly worships Sun Li as a god]], and the mere act of questioning him can bring death upon the asker.
* ''VideoGame/JakIIRenegade'': Baron Praxis betrayed the real ruler of Haven City, booted him out into the Wasteland and transformed Haven into a totalitarian empire, loaded with [[DisproportionateRetribution ridiculously cruel laws]], a corrupt police force and indifference to suffering and poverty in general. On top of that, he has no qualms using human lives in his Dark Eco experiments (poisoning them while trying to create SuperSoldiers). While he does go out of his way to give the REAL BigBad of the game loads of Eco just to keep him and his creatures out of the city, it's obviously [[PragmaticVillainy just to keep control of his empire and not because he cares about the people in it]]. In addition, he tries to pull a TakingYouWithMe.

In addition to warring on them with his own army, he also [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates the humans into fighting each other]] over a nonexistent Wish Seed. He never misses an opportunity to insult Pit, and especially enjoys Pit's suffering. Even the other gods, like [[KnightTemplar Viridi]] and [[AllPowerfulBystander Dyntos]], who aren't fond of humans themselves, oppose him for his sheer malice and the destruction he causes. He briefly [[EnemyMine sides with the heroes]] when the [[AlienInvasion Aurum start destroying the planet]], but he freely admits that it's only because he wants to plunder Earth himself. Then he sends monsters after Pit anyway just for giggles. Eventually he reveals what he's doing with the souls he's been collecting; he's molding them into whatever shape he wants and using them to fuel his army. He even enjoys eating souls, which removes them from the reincarnation cycle. [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness Not even his own troops are safe from his whims, as he sees no problem with reviving Medusa as much as he wants before disposing her]]. Ultimately, his desire to control everything leads to every surviving faction trying to stop him.

* The Father in the ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIIRomancingTheThrone'' FanRemake starts off merely as an EvilChancellor who sets Graham up to head to Kolyma.

Kain later began a second war that ended with humans enslaved by Vampires. So, as directly stated in the last game, the entire history of the series is full of the three major races in the world killing and enslaving and wiping each other out, over and over again for dominance, and [[TheChessmaster all this was caused by the Elder God]].

With the corruption of the Pillars, he possesses Janos Audron and rebuilds the Sarafan order of vampire hunters, driving them to endangerment and establishing tyrannical control of human civilization. He uses this control to construct a network of Glyph-powered machines around Nosgoth to direct the energies of the Device, an ancient Hylden war weapon. With Janos imprisoned and deformed to power the Device, the Hylden Lord plans to activate the Device and kill all non-Hylden life in Nosgoth through the Glyph network, including the human Sarafan that loyally serve him.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon'' Melbu Frahnma was the emperor of the winged humanoid race called the Winglies. Promoting a racist philosophy, Melbu Frahnma spread the belief that every single thing that wasn't a Wingly deserved annihilation, but it was the 'grace' of his empire to spare them as slaves. After being overthrown, Melbu Frahnma's spirit went dormant until he could [[GrandTheftMe take over the hero, Zieg]]. Using Zieg's body, Melbu Frahnma manipulated several massive wars and multiple murders to engineer his ascent to power and to fuse with a 'seed' of a God and become the god of destruction. He plans to become the new god emperor of the world and destroy or make slaves of every race. Not even the Winglies are exempt, as Melbu frahnma displays full willingness to wipe them out should they resist him.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series:
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'': {{The Sociopath}}ic [[PsychopathicManchild Zant]] is [[BossSubtitles described by the game]] as a [[FakeKing "Usurper King"]]. At first, he [[HijackedByGanon gained power from Ganondorf]], but he had his own agenda. His first heinous act was attempting to murder Midna, the rightful heir to the throne of the Twili. When that failed, he [[BalefulPolymorph transformed her into an imp and banished her and transformed all her people into hideous shadow beasts]] just so he could have zero opposition to the throne. When he took over, his lust for power still wasn't satisfied, so he decided to extend his tyrannical reign to the prosperous kingdom of Hyrule. There he executed the Queen of Zoras in front of them, and froze Zora's Domain, leaving many of the Zoras to die. He then forced Princess Zelda to surrender and uses Twilight on her kingdom of Hyrule, rendering all the citizens of Hyrule as [[AndIMustScream spirits]] who could only watch as the shadow beasts tore up the kingdom. When he's confronted by Link, he attempts to kill Midna and transforms Link into a wolf with powerful magic just because [[DisproportionateRetribution Midna defied him]], and later rants about only he is allowed to rule the world.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]]'': Yuga starts off as TheDragon to [[WellIntentionedExtremist Princess Hilda]] of Lorule, working with her to capture Hyrule's Sages to revive Ganon so the Triforce of Power can be returned to the mortal plane. He also imprisons several soldiers around Hyrule Castle by turning them into paintings (leading to potential FridgeHorror when the paintings vanish from the walls). Yuga merges with Ganon and mercilessly attacks Link only to be stopped by Hilda who sets him off to free the Sages. After all the Sages are freed, Link gains the Triforce of Courage. After wearing Yuga down, he then [[TheStarscream betrays Hilda]], puts her in a FateWorseThanDeath in a painting and then merges with her to get her stolen Triforce of Wisdom. Yuga reveals himself that he didn't care about restoring Lorule at all: all he wanted was to reshape it in his own image. He even tries to cause Lorule's destruction at the end for that purpose with only Link standing in his way.
* ''VideoGame/LostEden'': [[BigBad Moorkus Rex]] is an evil dinosaur [[EvilOverlord tyrant]] who leads an army of [[TyrannosaurusRex Tyranns]] to conquer all other kingdoms. He doesn't want to {{take over the world}} so much as simply [[OmnicidalManiac dismember it]] (reducing the world to "blood and ashes at my feet", as he put it), and his {{mook}}s cut swaths of destruction wherever they go. His real power is illusion and fakery--he lies every time he opens his mouth, trying to sow confusion and despair, while the real threat -- the Tyrann -- destroys everything in their path. It unfortunately works all too well on Dina, whom he tricked into believing he had gruesomely murdered her mate.
* ''VideoGame/LostOdyssey'': [[spoiler: [[BigBad Gongora]]]] is identifiable as a SmugSnake even before it's clear that he's the villain, but as the game's backstory is revealed it becomes clear that he crossed the MoralEventHorizon before the game had even begun. Since several of the main characters of the game are [[{{Immortality}} immortal and unkillable]], he had to get ''creative'' in getting them out of his way, which he did by sealing away their memories, leaving them completely amnesiac and unaware of their origins, which all of them agree is [[LossOfIdentity something like being a walking corpse]]. For him to be able to do it in the first place, they had to go through something [[TraumaInducedAmnesia traumatic enough]] that they wouldn't ''want'' to remember, so he abducted Kaim and Sarah's daughter and left them believing she was dead, forced Seth to [[SadisticChoice kill her best friend to save her son]], and set giant monsters loose in [[TheHighQueen Ming's]] kingdom to slaughter her subjects until she [[HeroicSacrifice agreed to block off her own memories to save them]]. As a result, Kaim and Seth both end up [[CriminalAmnesiac working for him]], Ming becomes a figurehead in the country she's ruled for a thousand years, and Sarah [[FreakOut goes insane]] for several decades. And to top it all off, he [[PeoplePuppets magically controls Jansen]] and forces him to attack his friends and love interest, apparently just to be a {{Jerkass}}.
* ''VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue'': Zophar is the self styled lord of darkness and the one responsible for the Blue Star being stripped of all life. As we see in flashbacks, Zophar led a campaign of conquest on the Blue Star that only ended when his arch-nemesis, the goddess Althena, was forced to seal him at the cost of all life on the world. Even through his prison, Zophar reached out to corrupt mortals, twisting the church of Althena into a CorruptChurch that was responsible for centuries of suffering and cruelty. Zophar excels in twisting and corrupting hearts to even turned loved ones against one another, and unlike most dark lords, Zophar [[EvilCannotComprehendGood fully understands goodness and righteousness]] enough to exploit it: manipulating heroine Lucia's love for her friends so she wouldn't have the will to destroy him at cost of the world. Zophar takes her captive to use her powers to remake the world in his twisted image, not caring about the death toll. When he decides the world is too much trouble, Zophar merely elects to destroy it utterly with every living soul.
* ''VideoGame/{{Manhunt}}'': [[ManipulativeBastard Lionel]] [[BigBad Starkweather]] from the first game is a rich man who creates {{Snuff Film}}s for his own pleasure and profit. Using his fortune to acquire convicted death-row inmate James Earl Cash, Starkweather sets him loose in an urban jungle while hunted by gang members and corrupt law enforcement. Starkweather constantly ups the stakes by putting others in danger and has Cash's innocent family kidnapped to face almost certain death ([[spoiler: they all end up dying]]). Starkweather's prize fighter is an insane, [[FullFrontalAssault naked man]] wearing a pig's head named Piggsy who has clearly lost his mind through what Starkweather has put him through. Starkweather's voice dogs the player throughout as the depraved millionaire positively revels in the horror and brutality he creates.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'': Henry Lawson is an [[ItsAllAboutMe egomaniacal]] CorruptCorporateExecutive and MadScientist obsessed with having a dynasty. To that end he creates DesignerBabies based off of his DNA. Viewing them only as tools, he controls them their entire lives, molding them to meet his expectations, such as he did with [[JerkassWoobie Miranda]]. Should any of them be subpar, [[OffingTheOffspring he kills them]]. When he appears in ''Mass Effect 3'', he's working with the Illusive Man [[spoiler:in using the refugee camp, Sanctuary, as a front for gathering test subjects to study Reaper Indoctrination. Thousands of civilians are experimented on, [[WouldHurtAChild including children]], resulting in either their deaths or their being turned into [[NightOfTheLivingMooks husks]]]]. Unlike the rest of Cerberus, who are trying to [[WellIntentionedExtremist help humanity]], Lawson is only committing atrocities to save his own life and to have future generations [[GlorySeeker idolize him]]. He's not even [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Indoctrinated]] like the rest, having found a way to overcome and control its effects. When he's cornered by Shepard, Henry uses [[spoiler:his younger daughter, Oriana,]] as a HumanShield, and, depending upon the player's actions, he can end up killing [[spoiler:either Oriana or Miranda]].
* ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'':
** From the first game we have CorruptCorporateExecutive [[BigBad Nicole Horne]]. As a member of [[TheIlluminati the Inner Circle]], she was responsible for Project Valhalla, a program that was developing a highly addictive psychotropic SuperSerum when it turned out to be a psychosis-inducing poison. In response to this discovery, she decided to market it as Valkyr to the public, thereby becoming an untouchable corporate crime lord who directly and indirectly killed thousands. When Michelle Payne inadvertently received information that would expose the Valkyr Conspiracy, Nicole had a horde of drugged-up maniacs slaughter both Michelle and her baby daughter. Over the following years, Horne went on to control the entire criminal underworld of New York through her pawn, Angelo Punchinello, and made a play into politics by putting a hit on the Mayor. Through all of this Horne has no clear motivations, no enlightened intent, no emotion; she is just pure evil. The worst part is when she tells Max: "The deaths of your wife and daughter were necessary, inevitable; it is DONE. You cannot bring them back. Nothing you do will make it any better."
** ''Max Payne 3'': [[BigBad Victor Branco]] is an aspiring but {{corrupt politician}} of São Paulo, and a son of the wealthy Branco family. [[TheManBehindTheMan He is also the hidden leader of the UFE]], a law enforcement group he uses for his own ends, and the Cracha Preto death squad and the mastermind behind the assassinations attempts on his brothers (one by [[ManOnFire burning alive]], and the abduction of his sister-in-law. He is motivated by [[{{greed}} control of the family fortune]] and [[WoundedGazelleGambit gaining sympathy]] for the [[SleazyPolitician election]]. Victor recruits Max as a bodyguard but really plans on making Max a fall guy for his criminal enterprises, which includes a secret ring where the poor of Brazil are kidnapped, held hostage and are harvested for their organs for the black market organ trade.
* ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series:
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'': {{Colonel|Badass}} Yevgeny Borisovitch [[BigBad Volgin]] is a {{Sadist}} who, within minutes of appearing, fires a Davy Crocket nuke at his countrymen just to give it "a test drive," knowing full well that he won't be blamed for it, even when one of his subordinates is clinging to his arm, begging him not to. Then come one of the most vicious ColdBloodedTorture scenes in video games. It's clear he didn't care if the torturee lives or dies before getting the proper information, as long as he gets his kicks. Then we also have the fact that Volgin, long before the events of the game, had participated in the Katyn Forest Massacre as a NKVD member, where he managed to kill over 20,000 Polish officers with his bare hands, and not only that, but he also removed their blindfolds ''before'' beating them to a pulp, and he killed several people in both the Hungarian Revolution and the East Germany Uprising, which he not only had absolutely no regrets about killing 100,000 anti-communist activists, but even boasted about the feat.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearAcid[[superscript:2]]'': [[GeneralRipper Wiseman]] instigated a horrific event known as the [[MoralEventHorizon Praulia Massacre]]: Wiseman felt that the data about the Model 2 soldiers was insufficient, so he had technicians provoke said soldiers into going berserk, causing the deaths of 10,000 people. He then sent the Model 3 soldiers in to eliminate the Model 2 soldiers, knowing that eliminating their brethren hurt them. Besides this, Wiseman was also responsible for the death of Koppelthorne's wife, which also resulted in the events of what happened later on. In addition, he had Venus render Snake amnesiac in to help him obtain the Lucinda File with the evidence of the massacre, and had Venus execute him simply because [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he outlived his usefulness]].
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'': [[BloodKnight Sundowner]] is a war profiteer who seeks to spread WarForFunAndProfit around the world, believing it to be the natural state of mankind. He begins the game by killing President N'mami in front of Raiden whilst being needlessly sadistic, and has street children kidnapped while their brains (of which we see hundreds) are removed into cyborg casings [[AndIMustScream while they are aware the whole time.]] They're forced to commit endless atrocities in virtual reality before they are sent off to commit them in the real world as well. Sundowner has no [[WellIntentionedExtremist good intentions or vision for peace]] like [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker Hot Coldman]] or ''Revengeance'''s own BigBad; he's more {{sadist}}ically gleeful and [[TheSociopath sociopathically]] unrepentant of his atrocities.
* ''VideoGame/MimanaIyarChronicle'': Heidar attacked [[TheHero Crais's]] village and killed all the inhabitants, including Crais's family. Before killing Crais's [[WouldHurtAChild child sister]] Coral, he mocks her for the fact that her brother is not there to protect her. In the present, Heidar seeks the [[MacGuffin seven gems]] that will unlock the sacred water temple and allow him to summon the water dragon to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the world]]. When Otto and his group go searching for one of the gems, Heidar kills them all. When he encounters Crais, he shames him by telling him that he should have been there to protect his sister. After his defeat, his last act before dying is to [[TakingYouWithMe release the water dragon to destroy the Earth]].
* ''VideoGame/MurderedSoulSuspect'': [[KidsAreCruel Abigail Williams]], the real BigBad, defines [[{{hypocrite}} hypocrisy]] in its cruelest, nastiest nature. During the Salem Witch Trials, her vendetta against witches motivates her to falsely report multiple women as witches leading to their execution. Abigail swears vengeance on all “Witches” that set foot in Salem and blames witches for her execution. Thereafter, as the [[SerialKiller Bell Killer]], Abigail uses witchcraft to [[PeoplePuppets manipulate people]] into murdering young women through the same methods Salemites used to execute witches. This is demonstrated when she manipulates Rex Reyes into shooting Ronan to death after the latter is brainwashed into killing Sophia. As her pursuit of Iris Campbell demonstrates, Abigail is willing to do ''anything'' to kill her targets, from burning her sister at the stake to indiscriminately killing innocents inside a church. When she reveals to Ronan that she’s the Bell Killer, she opens a portal to hell in an attempt to kill the detective’s spirit once and for all.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' series has mass-murderer Sirrus. As his brother Achenar [[TheAtoner felt remorse for his actions]] and does a HeelFaceTurn and HeroicSacrifice in ''Myst IV: Revelation'', Sirrus not only seems to have no regrets but commits additional atrocities: kidnapping his own sister, taunting her about how he plans to suck her soul out of her body before doing a GrandTheftMe, and then holding her soul captive if the player manages to get his soul out of her body. He taunts her about how he plans on murdering both her and their parents, and in the bad endings where the player loses, he murders his brother and the player.
* ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'': In a series featuring demon lords and other unholy terrors as villains, [[BigBad Clifford "Cliff" Higgins]], from the third game of the New Trilogy, comes off as one of the most evil opponents Ryu Hayabusa has ever faced. When Ryu first meets Cliff, [[BitchInSheepsClothing he seems like a helpful scientist working for the Japanese Defense Force]]. However, Cliff is really a [[TheMole mole]] working for the Lords of Alchemy, a group that wants to destroy the human race and replace it with new "perfect" god-like beings; he is also the grandson of the head of the LOA. When Cliff's brother Theodore opposed Cliff's plans, Cliff [[CainAndAbel had him killed]] in an [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident accident]]. Cliff later decides to bring his brother back to life, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashes]] him and [[TheManBehindTheMan turns him into a terrorist]]. While under Cliff's control, Theodore launches a terrorist attack on London and murders the British Prime Minister. Cliff's plans come to a head when he uses his technology and Ryu's Dragon Sword, to turn [[ChildrenAreInnocent Canna]], his own niece, into an EldritchAbomination called the Goddess. The Goddess then proceeds to go on a rampage across Tokyo and will eventually destroy the entire human race. Later after a fight with Ryu and a fatal injury at the hands of his brother, Cliff admits he did all this because he was [[DrivenByEnvy jealous of his brother and wanted to step out from under his shadow, any way he could]].
* ''VideoGame/NintendoWars'':
** Caulder from ''Advance Wars: Days of Ruin'' appears to be just an amoral scientist at first, excited by the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt recent apocalypse]], since it finally lets him give his weapons some field testing to slake his curiosity. As the story continues, his "scientific curiosity" turns out to be genocidal sadism. He has invented a virus known as The Creeper, which makes flowers ''grow underneath your skin and burst through it, covering your body with roots, stems, and flowers'', all of which you can feel very painfully. The original virus wasn't good enough for him since it only infected the young, so he decided to upgrade it. Now it can kill everyone, even faster and more painfully than before. The photo they show you of one of the victims of this new strain of Creeper is horrid. It gets to the point where, when he tries to HannibalLecture the hero about how HumansAreBastards, the [[ShutUpHannibal hero throws it back in his face]], saying that it doesn't matter if he's right, becaue he's still a monster who needs to be destroyed. [[spoiler: Caulder even reveals that he isn't human, but a clone of an amoral scientist that fought back and killed his creator and the OTHER clones of said amoral scientist. "Do you know what it's like to watch yourself die? ...It is FASCINATING!"]]
** The same game also has Greyfield, a malicious SocialDarwinist who preaches about ruling through fear. His crimes include: [[spoiler:scaring [[ButtMonkey Davis]] to death, messing with your units the one time he is your "ally" out of spite for disputing his [[TheSocialDarwinist darwinism]], making your force do "active surveillance" for perhaps both sadistic reasons Lin mentions, murdering [[WorthyOpponent Forsythe]] before he could try being a SilentScapegoat, and [[WeHaveReserves nuking his own men]] to kill [[AFatherToHisMen Brenner]].]]

[[folder:O - R]]
* ''Franchise/{{Onimusha}}''
** In life, UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga was a brutal warlord. After his death and resurrection, he becomes far worse. Planning to achieve immortality by drinking an innocent princess's blood, Nobunaga, who serves as the BigBad for the first three games, soon becomes the [[DemonKingNobunaga king of all demons]] to replace the slain king Fortinbras. Leading his forces, Nobunaga embarks on a vicious campaign through Japan, slaughtering civilians. Nobunaga also wipes out the Yagyu village, leaving only one survivor. Stopping at nothing to dominate all Japan, Nobunaga is a stark reminder that [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans can be just as evil as any demon]].
** Guildenstern, also from the first three games (only mentioned in the second), the MadScientist of the Genma and Nobunaga's [[TheDragon right-hand demon]], is a monster who enjoys the taste of organs and crafting new monsters to [[ForScience extend the power of the Genma]]. Guildenstern is the one to transform and resurrect Nobunaga and to facilitate the destruction his forces cause. In the third game, Guildenstern opens a rift to modern day UsefulNotes/{{Paris}} and leads the Genma forces to slaughter everything they find. When he is found by [[TheHero Samanosuke]] in Paris, Guildenstern is even shown about to [[WouldHurtAChild devour the organs of a child]], stating he just loves how delicious and soft children are.
* ''VideoGame/TheOrder1886'': [[BigBad Jacob van Neck]], AKA [[AristocratsAreEvil Lord Hastings]], is revealed to be a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Master Vampire]] and the source of the "half-breed" attacks in UsefulNotes/{{London}} that have claimed many lives. Organizing the monsters into an army, Hastings uses them to launch attacks that kill and turn humans, sowing chaos so that he can operate behind the scenes. Hastings [[FrameUp frames]] [[TheHero Gabriel]] for betraying the Order itself, revealing himself to be the infamous UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper in the process. When Gabriel uncovers Hastings's plot, he also finds that Hastings is sending enough vampires on a ship to America to infect and conquer an entire city.
* ''VideoGame/{{Phantasmagoria 2}}'': Paul Allen Warner is the CorruptCorporateExecutive of the pharmaceutical company [=WynTech=]. His crimes include sacrificing numerous mental patients from Doctor Marek's asylum to [[spoiler:interdimensional aliens]], murdering Curtis's father because he objected to the direction the experiment went in, [[spoiler:treating alien Curtis like a guinea pig and not a human being, throwing child Curtis through the dimensional portal just because he can't find another subject in time, using the dimension]] to create illegal drugs through his pharmaceutical company to get the entire populace hopelessly addicted and in his thrall, and bragging to Curtis about what he has done with smug satisfaction and not a flicker of remorse.
* ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'': [[spoiler:The Real Alex Mercer]] not only brags about making a deadly virus 10x deadlier, but when asked how he felt about his work and the human test subjects involved, he replied, "I wasn't being ''paid'' to feel". Even worse, when [[spoiler: he was cornered by Blackwatch agents at Penn Station, he decided to unleash the Blacklight Virus on Manhattan, resulting in the deaths of over 10 million people in a truly callous act of TakingYouWithMe, even though he knew his ''own sister'' was in the city at the time.]] Even the [[spoiler: man-eating virus itself]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards expresses disgust]] at what [[spoiler:Alex]] did.
* ''VideoGame/PsychicForce'':
** [[BigBad Richard]] [[FourEyesZeroSoul Wong]] is a [[TheChessmaster coldly calculating]] SmugSnake who treats people as nothing more than expendable pawns in his game of conquest, and is responsible, among other things, for [[spoiler:turning Wendy's sister Chris into a combat cyborg devoted to him (or Keith), for capturing Patty and putting her into an AndIMustScream situation in order to create his ultimate weapon, and the worst would be capturing [[TheWoobie Emilio]] and transforms him from a ShrinkingViolet into an AxCrazy psychopath]]. He is never given any reason for his actions besides a massive ego that makes him think [[AGodAmI the world should worship him like a god.]]
** [[TheBrute Gudeath]] is a [[GravitySucks gravity-controlling]] SocialDarwinist BloodKnight whose only reason for joining Wong is because he likes murdering people, taking joy in destroying his victims' loved ones and prolonging their agony as much as possible, and being part of the Army gives him the chance to do that without consequences.
* Cross Ward of ''VideoGame/RadiataStories'' is a deplorable man, and in the first scene the players meet him he is instantly recognizable as a racist {{Jerkass}}. But Cross's depravity really comes to light when he [[MoralEventHorizon leads his knight brigade to slaughter the dwarves of Earth Valley]] over a ''perceived'' insult (which was really more of a very caustically delivered piece of advice) from the dwarf leader. He continues acting horrible in each of the game's story branches; in the one where [[TheHero Jack]] stays with humanity and becomes a hero, Cross becomes a bitter glory hound doing everything he can to establish himself as a great knight, using the war as an excuse to build his own reputation. In the path where Jack abandons humanity and sides with the nonhumans, Cross becomes humanity's trump card instead of Jack. He uses his new influence to commit as many atrocities against the nonhumans as his position will allow, and also kidnaps Jack's sister and [[ColdBloodedTorture tortures her]].
* ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'':
** [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Ultimate Supreme Executive Chairman Drek]] is the BigBad of [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank the first game]]. At first he may come off as a [[FauxAffablyEvil humorous villain]] who is trying to find a home for his people by [[WellIntentionedExtremist extremist, if clearly apathetic means]], but by the end of the game, there is no mistaking him for anything but an unrepentant maniac. To begin with, ''he'' is the one who over-polluted his own home planet and got his kind, the Blarg, into this situation, and proudly boasts about it and how he did it on purpose, and his ''real'' motive behind tearing apart planets to build his new world (with people still ''on'' them) and eventually trying to blow up planets with bombs and superlasers, is the mother of all money-laundering real-estate scams; he's been paid for every square inch of the new Blarg homeworld, and makes it clear once the people settle in, he'll repeat the whole polluting and planet looting cycle all over again. Oh, and he almost blew up Ratchet's home planet with a superlaser so he could move his new world into its perfect orbit, and it's implied he also chose Veldin just to spite Ratchet for getting in his way.
** ''VideoGame/RatchetDeadlocked'' has [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Gleeman Vox]], whose schemes overall were not as wide-scale or devastating as the havoc Chairman Drek committed, but who is by ''far'' the more malicious and unstable in personality. Not content with merely kidnapping superheroes and forcing them to fight each other to the death, he keeps them safely imprisoned with collars that shock them or explode if they try to escape and demonstrates the collars on sentient robots. He also isn't above putting the entire planet of Stygia in danger by sabotaging the force fields that protect it from meteor storms, or attempt to murder everyone aboard his space station - including thousands of innocent audiences, some of which are children - all for the simple purpose of improving his ratings.
* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'':
** Colonel Agustin Allende of the corrupt Mexican regime, despite being from peasant stock himself, brutalizes the common people. Allende uses violence as a common tactic, with executions being common. His economic policy is to keep the people poor, starving and without hope. He also routinely has girls abducted to serve as sex slaves for himself or his men.
** Randall Forrester is a deranged man who lives in the wilderness by himself and who serves as the culprit behind a string of serial murders and disappearances in the game. Forrester is a [[IAmAHumanitarian cannibal]], justifying himself with "a man's gotta eat!" Forrester will kidnap and eat anyone: men, women or children, and shows no remorse for any of his crimes. When hero John Marston catches him with an escaping victim, Forrester enlists the ignorant Marston's help in subduing the man, clearly relishing the victim's terror.
* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRevolver'': Before he became the Governor, Griffon was the partner of gold miner Nate Harlow, the father of [[TheHero Red Harlow]]. After an encounter with General Diego, Griffon doesn't hesitate in selling out Nate and his family for Nate's half of the gold and his own life, getting Nate and his wife killed. As Governor, Griffon and Diego are running an illegal gold mine using slave labor and when an American soldier tries to report this to the Governor, Griffon not only admits that he's in one it, but he has the soldier kept prisoner. He also tries to by Annie Stooke's ranch and when intimidation doesn't work, he simply sends his men to burn her farm down and kill her. Later at the Battle Royal, Griffon recognises Red and attempts to have him killed. When confronted at the end, Griffon says he regrets not being there when the Harlow's where killed, so he can make sure Red joined him and attempts to take this "second chance" to gun him down.
* ''Franchise/RedFaction''
** [[BigBad Axel Caypek]] from the first game is the [[MadScientist head of scientific research]] at the Ultor Corporation. To him, the lives of countless innocents were less important than his [[ForScience scientific curiosity]]. His experiments created mutants resulting from the animals and humans he tested on, unleashing a plague on Mars mines, killing and crippling innocent people, and awakening an alien race that he let kill his fellow scientists. When confronted by [[TheProtagonist Parker]], Caypek reveals there is a cure for the plague but refuses to reveal it for no reason other than spite; his last words being "[[OmnicidalManiac I hope you all die!]]". A vicious [[ItsAllAboutMe egomaniac]], Caypek dismisses the deaths of countless innocent people as nothing more than a stepping stone to progress.
** [[InsaneAdmiral Admiral]] Lucious [[GeneralRipper Kobel]] from ''Guerrilla'' outstrips any of his fellow Earth Defense Force in cruelty, having previously used his warship, the Hydra, to annihilate Central Asian rebels. When EDF loses faith in its current commander, [[BigBad General Bertram Roth]], Kobel is sent, [[EvenEvilHasStandards as a last resort]], to supress the Red Faction rebellion for good. Despite given orders to avoid any unnecessary damage, civilian casualties were unimportant to Kobel, and he set out with a plan of his own: [[SocialDarwinist to start fresh and exterminate all life on Mars]]. Using the Hydra to start a bombardment on Mars, Kobel cared not for the civilians, declaring them expendable, and indicates he arranged the entire situation to [[TheStarscream take control from Roth]] in the first place.
* ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' villains trend towards TragicMonster, or simply being too inhuman to bother passing moral judgement on. There are two major exceptions.
** [[BigBad Albert Wesker]] has the worst case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder in the entire series. In ''RE 1'', he sets up his own team, the STARS, to be killed as test subjects for bio-organic weapons, then resurfaces in ''Code Veronica'' to make another attempt on the life of surviving member Chris Redfield. In ''Umbrella Chronicles'' he kills Sergei Vladimir in order to secure control of the Umbrella Corporation's data, and in ''RE 5'' he really goes to town, killing Ozwell Spencer (his creator), transforming Excella Gionne (his girlfriend) into a mutated monster, and brainwashing Jill Valentine into fighting her partner, Chris, before trying to kill ninety percent of Earth's population with his new Ouroboros virus, all as part of a scheme to become [[AGodAmI god of a new world]]. And that's without getting into the revelations that he murdered his mentor Dr. Marcus (''RE 0''), or the expermients that he and William Birkin conducted on Lisa Trevor (''[=REmake=]''). Wesker's essentially [[AmbitionIsEvil ambition]] and treachery made manifest, all wrapped up in a [[BadassLongcoat trenchcoat]] and [[SinisterShades designer sunglasses]].
** ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles The Darkside Chronicles]]'': Alexia Ashford no longer had love for her brother as a part of her personality, the way it was in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code Veronica]]'', and her evil is cranked up a few notches higher. A ChildProdigy who joined the [[MegaCorp Umbrella Corporation]] at the age of twelve, Alexia was also an entitled {{sadist}} with a serious [[AGodAmI god complex]]. She aided her brother in murdering and experimenting on their father, tortured a classmate to death (and recorded the session) for being almost as smart as she was, and eventually injected herself with the T-Veronica virus, which she planned to use to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. Reawakened from cryogenic sleep in her twenties, Alexia kills her brother for not waking her up on time, transforms Claire Redfield's {{Love Interest|s}}, Steve Burnside, into a monster and forces him to fight her to the death, and tries repeatedly to kill Chris and Claire for no other reason then their presence at her facility. She reveals that her plan is to infect the world with the T-Veronica virus, enslaving most of humanity to [[HiveQueen her will]]. When asked why, Alexia just gloats about how, as a superior specimen of humanity, she deserves to be Queen.
* ''VideoGame/{{Resistance}} 3'': Mick Cutler was incarcerated in prison before the Chimera attack. Deciding to use the prison as a base, Cutler ran it with absolute savagery and barbarity. He disposed of any potential threats and led raids to capture other human survivors, using them for gladiator games to entertain himself and his followers or possibly cannibalizing them. Mick is first seen brutally murdering a doctor, and placing another TheHero Capelli into a gladiator arena. Even when the Chimera discovered the location and attacked, Mick tried to stop Capelli from actions that may have saved them just to keep his own power.
* ''VideoGame/{{Ripper}}'': [[AntagonistTitle The Ripper]] is a {{serial killer}} who feels inspired by the original UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper. The Ripper uses the computer technology of 2047 to make the many murders in New York City untraceable and as graphic as possible, using a form of bio-engineering to [[CruelAndUnusualDeath raise the victim's internal pressure to the point that their organs explode]]. When Catherine Powell tracks The Ripper down, The Ripper sends her into a coma. Throughout the game The Ripper’s [[HiddenVillain true identity is concealed]], frequently calling up the protagonist to boast. While one of the four possible identities of the Ripper ([[spoiler:Catherine]]) has a redeeming motive, the other three ([[spoiler:Detective Vince Magnotta (who's leading the investigation), Dr. Claire Burton, or hacker Joey Falconetti]]) have no excuse and seem to engage in these crimes simply [[ForTheEvulz for the fun of it]], claiming to have been "born to rip lives to shreds".
* ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'': Iris Zeppelin's goal is to become [[AGodAmI god of the entire world]], but many of her actions are purely [[ForTheEvulz for her]] [[ItAmusedMe amusement]]. These actions include starting a war and killing off family members that aren't useful for her. She even chooses victims based on who would suffer most from their deaths. When confronted with the fact that her desire for atrocity would keep her from being able to control her power, she simply shrugs and feels that she's right to simply destroy whatever she wants.
* ''VideoGame/RuneFactoryFrontier'': [[BigBad Gelwein]] is a MadScientist banished from the Imperial Research Center in Norad for his theories on using [[{{Mana}} Runes]] for powering weapons of mass destruction. Gelwein attempts to continue his research by draining the LifeEnergy from a sentient floating island, condemning the island's sentience to a slow, torturous death in the process. When told that the floating island could, if completely drained of its energy, [[ColonyDrop fall out of the sky and crush a town's worth of innocent people underneath it]], he smugly says that it's [[BystanderSyndrome not his problem]]. He also [[spoiler:kidnaps Mist and uses her energy to power the giant rune that makes him invincible.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Runescape}}'':
** [[AbsoluteXenophobe Sigmund]] is a [[FantasticRacism total xenophobe]] who wants the peaceful cave goblins dead. The first thing you see him do is try to start a war between Lumbridge and the Dorgeshuun. At one point, he even uses emotional blackmail on the character. And then it gets much, much, worse. He tries to drill a hole under the river to fall into the cave, drowning all the goblins, after that fails, he ties Zanik to train tracks in an attempt to start a war between the goblins and the dwarves. He relishes killing the player just as much as he relishes killing the goblins, such as in the Chosen Commander.
** [[OmnicidalManiac Bandos]], The Big High WarGod, is a true believer in {{Might Makes Right}} and {{War is Glorious}}. As a mortal, Bandos happily murders the sleeping god, Jodoku Otoku, despite knowing its death would lead to the extinction of all life on his homeworld. Now a god, he traveled to the world of Yu'biusk, homeworld of goblins, orks, and orges, and transformed its inhabitants from peaceful hunter-gatherers to a brutish horde to serve as his soldiers, worshipers, and playthings. Marching his new army to the world of Gielinor, he ecstatically led them to battle during the cataclysmic God Wars. Constantly betraying his allies and spreading wanton slaughter, Bandos fought simply for the [[BloodKnight thrill of war]]. Eventually banished from Gielinor by Guthix at the end of the Third Age, Bandos took his frustration out on his remaining followers on Yu'biusk. He manipulated the remaining tribes into waging a war of total annihilation that turned Yu'biusk into a lifeless wasteland, just like Bandos' homeworld. In an attempt to return to Gielinor, he made Zanik, a member of the tribe of goblins that rebelled against him, into his Chosen Commander to lead his followers to wage total war on the rest of the world. Despite failing yet again, he returns following the death of Guthix with the intentions of killing the others gods and claiming the Stone of Jas and use its power to wage endless war across the universe. Hated and feared by mortals and gods alike, Bandos perfectly represents everything that can go wrong when a mortal ascends to godhood.

If that wasn't enough, [[spoiler:he even tries to kill the titular character with his own love interest]]. He does intend to destroy it so it's replaced by a pure universe, but even so, it's inexcusable. What's worse is Malefor's [[EvilLaugh laughs]] while giving a chilling HannibalLecture and watching [[spoiler:a brainwashed Cynder beat down on Spyro]], actually ''enjoying'' what he's doing to them. And he [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness "rewarded" the Apes for freeing him from his prison by giving them a]] FateWorseThanDeath.

* ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'':
** Kerrigan's hated instructor, Lieutenant Rumm, forced the young girl to use her exceptional psionic powers by injecting a kitten with a tumor-causing chemical, and gave her the option of destroying the kitten's tumor or euthanizing it. Not willing to fall to his demands, Rumm threatened to shoot the kitten himself. Still uncompliant, Rumm decided not to shoot and left the kitten to die slowly and painfully. Taking more drastic measures, he brought in her father (who had become brain-damaged as a result of Kerrigan's accidentally unleashing her psionic powers) in an adjacent cell to hers and threatened to inject him with the same chemical if she didn't use her psionic powers. When she still refused, threatening to use the power to kill herself and her father, Rumm forced her to be neural resocialized (a form of brainwashing technology used to enforce obedience and shape new memories), turning her into a loyal puppet of the Terran Confederacy. Even after the mind-rape, he continued to mentally torture her for over a year.
** Emperor Arcturus Mengsk is initially portrayed as a [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-meaning freedom fighter]] against a corrupt government that murdered his entire family before nuking his entire world, and willing to take morally dubious methods to defeat them such as taking their Psychic Beacons and using them against the Confederacy to lure the Zerg to their bases. But when he leads the assault on Tarsonis and uses these same beacons to lure the Zerg to a heavily populated world he shows that he’s more fixated with [[ItsAllAboutMe revenge and personal power]], sending Kerrigan down to stop the Protoss from distracting the Zerg from wiping out all of the old families and then abandoning her when the Zerg overwhelm her position, resulting in her transformation into the Queen of Blades. Afterwards he uses the power he has gained to oppress any political protesters, continue the Confederacy’s experiments on civilians and orders the death of the last of the old families, a group of teenagers who weren't even aware of what had happened.
** The four-part comic ''Frontline'' series introduced Dr. Stanley Burgess. A sadistic Terran Dominion scientist, he personally oversaw the neural resocialization of Jin-ho Lim, a terran of Asian ethnicity who opposed the Terran Dominion but was conscripted into the Dominion Marine Corps. After the operation, Stanley ordered the now docile Lim to kill his wife and fellow Terran Dominion opposer, Anna, and he complied by shooting her in the face without a moment's hesitation. He also was responsible for the creation of the terran/Protoss Gestalts by implanting the organs of captured Protoss into terrans controlled by neural conditioning and neural inhibitors. His project came to an end after one of his subjects, Gestalt Zero, was freed from his neural inhibitors by a dying Protoss and stabbed him to death, ironically echoing one his previous comments "I should warn you...this is probably going to hurt."
** A relatively minor character in the novel "Devils' Due" is arguably the most irredeemably evil character in the setting, and has no justification in his background. Ezekiel Daun is a bounty hunter and mercenary, and unless his clients specify otherwise he will torture his victims to draw out their death, and makes it theatrical by terrifying them and using psychological warfare before he moves in for the kill. He also records all his deaths as holograms, both to watch in his spare time for the memories and to show his future victims to terrify them even more.
* ''VideoGame/StarFox'': [[EmperorScientist Emperor Andross]], the BigBad of [[VideoGame/StarFox1 the]] [[VideoGame/StarFox2 first]] [[VideoGame/StarFox64 four]] [[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures games]] (with a [[TheManBehindTheMonsters posthumous impact]] in ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand''), is a [[ManiacMonkeys primate]] [[MadScientist scientist]] whose [[EvilutionaryBiologist experiments]] destroyed a good chunk of the Cornerian capital city and rendered multiple worlds in the Lylat system uninhabitable. Banished to the planet Venom, Andross took it over while building his own army. When the time was right, Andross launched a vicious campaign on Lylat, having his forces attack civilian populations and aiming to exterminate life on entire worlds. When he faced [[TheHero Fox McCloud]], [[YouKilledMyFather whose father Andross had killed]] years ago, Andross was apparently destroyed, [[NotQuiteDead only to survive]] in the [[BackFromTheDead form of a spirit]] who fled to Dinosaur Planet (later named Sauria). Manipulating events there, Andross engineered his own resurrection and [[AGodAmI transformation into a near deity]]. At the climax of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', Andross, who has been [[HijackedByGanon manipulating General Scales]], opts to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the entire Lylat system]].
* ''VideoGame/StarGladiator'': [[MadScientist Dr.]] [[EmperorScientist Edward]] [[BigBad Bilstein]] blackmailed a famous fencer/matador into working for him by kidnapping/threatening his family. On top of that, he planted a bomb in his body to ensure his "loyalty." He has less than pleasant plans for the people on Earth, and killed the parents of one the main characters [[spoiler:and then turns the father into a plasma-wielding dinosaur.]] He also uses some denizens from another character's home planet to take over it. Then he orphaned, kidnapped and enslaved a young child who has the biggest plasma power potential in the galaxy. [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness Once his minions have done all his orders]], he's going to use their Plasma power for his ultimate weapon. He plans to use [[DaddysLittleVillain his own loving daughter]] as a guinea pig by which he can breed a new race of humans solely to use their limitless Plasma power to aid in his attempts to [[TakeOverTheWorld Take Over The Universe]] are another arguable offense. Even when [[spoiler:Rain, in her true ending, rebels against her father and decides to become galactic ruler in his place]], it seems like that outcome is the lesser of two evils by a wide margin given the sheer malice Bilstein is capable of.
* ''VideoGame/{{Starlancer}}'': Admiral Vladimir Kulov is the man behind The Coalition that has expanded into space, and is a brutal, corrupt mass murdering bastard. Kulov defies a peace treaty to invade the peaceful Alliance and overruns their territory, massacring many innocent people along the way. When the Alliance military fleet is defeated, Kulov gives an order to execute the prisoners of war without remorse. In order to keep control of the civilian populations, Kulov regularly has massacres conducted to quell any hint of dissent. Throughout the game, Kulov is seen as nothing more than a sickening bastard with a desire to dominate what he can.
* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'': Colonel Hakeev of the Tal Shiar was already a solid candidate before the release of ''Legacy of Romulus'', and that expansion only confirmed that he's the single most evil character in the game. He abducted entire colonies of innocent Romulans for horrific experiments into Borg technology, attempted to massacre most of the "inferior" Remans and drive the rest back into slavery, arranged sadistic gladiatorial events to determine the combat potential of various species (sentient or otherwise), and [[spoiler:was the person truly responsible for triggering the Hobus supernova, with all its apocalyptic consequences]]. To add icing to the cake of concentrated dickery, he's the only [[spoiler:Iconian agent]] in the story who is NotBrainwashed and not tricked either - he just thought that enslaving and exterminating the "lesser races" at the behest of his "Dark Masters" sounded really, really awesome.
* ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'':
** ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'': [[BigBad Luca Blight]], [[TheCaligula the Mad Prince]] of the Highland Kingdom, stands in stark contrast to the ambiguous nature of the franchise's other villains. While he has a FreudianExcuse in being ForcedToWatch the rape of his mother by Muse ruffians after his cowardly father fled, it is inexcusable when compared to the sheer scale of his atrocities. [[BloodKnight Luca relishes killing]] and expresses a [[PitifulWorms hatred and disgust for all life]]. His EstablishingCharacterMoment is building up public support for a war against Jowston by having his own youth brigade, just children training to be soldiers, slaughtered by his troops disguised as Jowstone soldiers. Later, he is seen burning a defenseless village to the ground and killing villagers. When one woman begs for her life, he tells her to act like a pig. After complying and asking if she's free to leave, Luca instead murders her while shouting, "''Die pig!''" After a mercenary fortress falls to Luca early in the game, Luca is found running Pohl, a teenage boy, through with his sword before turning his attention on a very young girl named Pilika, whose parent he had already killed in an earlier encounter. Though he is prevented from killing her as well, the traumatic situation causes Pilika to become mute. Later he sacrifices the entire population of the city of Muse to the Beast Rune while Jowy watches in complete horror, as does the party outside the city. Luca's gleeful depravity turns against him, [[EvenEvilHasStandards when Jowy and other Highlanders]] [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating betray him to the player's army]] by setting up an ambush in the forest. Even as he dies though, Luca never once stops relishing in just how monstrous he truly is.
--> "It took hundreds to kill me, but I slaughtered humans by the ''thousands''! Look at me! I am sublime! [[CardCarryingVillain I AM THE TRUE FACE OF EVIL!!!]]"
** Neclord the vampire from ''VideoGame/SuikodenI'' and ''VideoGame/SuikodenII''. There once existed a place called Blue Moon Village, which was inhabited by peaceful vampires whose thirst for blood was satiated by the presence of the Blue Moon Rune. Neclord, in his lust for power, allowed himself to be turned into a vampire, ingratiated himself into the village, then stole the rune from the village’s altar. This resulted in the vampires of the town being forced to [[SadisticChoice choose between killing people to extend their lives, or perish themselves]]. Desiring more power still, Neclord joined forces with [[BigBad Windy]] and decimated places like the Village of the Hidden Rune to obtain more True Runes. He also, [[ForTheEvulz on a whim]], attacked the village of North Window, killing and zombifying all its inhabitants to use as his undead army. He later did the same thing to the soldiers of Lorimar Fortress after Windy made him Lorimar’s governor. As governor, Neclord demanded that his people sacrifice him [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty one young girl a year to be his bride]]. Their screams from his castle could be heard by the villagers. After his defeat in VideoGame/SuikodenI, Neclord returned to North Window and began abducting women who strayed too close to the village. When Viktor, a former North Window resident, returns to seek revenge on Neclord, Neclord responds by reviving Viktor’s LoveInterest, Daisy, whom Neclord had murdered. Neclord offered to bring Daisy back to life in exchange for the sword Viktor was going to use to kill him, however Viktor realized the dead couldn't be brought back except as zombies, and killed Daisy himself causing Neclord to flee. Eventually, Neclord attacked Tinto City, hoping to take it over and make a new zombie kingdom for himself. During this time he also abducted Lo Wen and Lilly Pendragon, the daughter of Tinto’s mayor, to be his brides.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' franchise
** ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'': MagnificentBastard [[spoiler:[[MonsterClown Dimentio]]]] is pretty [[LaughablyEvil entertaining]] for most of the game, but [[BewareTheSillyOnes by the end]], he's just plain [[NightmareFuel freaky]]. He has been [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating]] the events of the story [[TheChessmaster from the beginning]]. He cracks jokes when causing Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Bowser's deaths, and he also plans to [[spoiler:[[TheStarscream betray]] [[BigBad Count Bleck]]]] and gain control over the [[ArtifactOfDoom Chaos Heart]] in order to ensure that all dimensions but his are destroyed, so that he could [[AGodAmI recreate the universe in his image]].

Unleashing them on the valley, King Boo abducts Mario himself and several Toads and [[AndIMustScream imprisons them within paintings]]. Uncaring about his minions, King Boo [[BadBoss performs experiments on his ghosts against their will]] to amplify their destructive potential, and calmly allows his own Boos to be caught and sealed by Luigi in a stark contrast to his [[AFatherToHisMen characterization in the last game]]. After Luigi gets close to restoring the Dark Moon, [[VillainousBreakdown King Boo starts to lose it]], and tears open a portal to the ghosts' homeworld with the intent to [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum destroy the universe]] as an act of spite. Once he's foiled, King Boo warps Luigi to his own dimension, announcing his intent to trap Luigi and all his friends in paintings as he [[TakeOverTheWorld conquers the world]] and "paints the town red." [[KnightOfCerebus Shockingly dark]] for a [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros series]] that is usually [[VileVillainSaccharineShow lighthearted]], King Boo devolved into an [[TheSociopath uncaring sociopath]] who would willingly [[OmnicidalManiac kill everyone]] and [[ApocalypseHow destroy everything just for a chance to get back at his rival]].

* ''VideoGame/TacticsOgre'': Death Master Nybbas Obderhode/Nybbeth Obdilord has no regards to the living and wasn't even loyal to his Lord (Barbatos, who was also a CompleteMonster on his own), all he does was just to perfect his study in necromancy and would use ANYONE to do it, including Leonard, Zaebos or [[spoiler:Guildus]], and then having you kill these people raised from the dead. And it's later revealed that he turned his own son Debordes into this after he was killed by Barbatos, but the process was incomplete and he left him in his horrendous zombified state, with only his sister Orias to take care of him, [[IHateYouVampireDad causing her to hate him immensely]]. The PSP remake makes him even ''more monstrous'' when [[spoiler:in the Chaotic route, he organized a zombie attack in Balmamusa that killed Orias, and Debordes to lead the other, never to recover. And then, it's revealed that he has another family of necromancers, all three eventually killed because of getting in Denam's way.

** ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013'': BigBad [[BadBoss Father Mathias]] demonstrates [[{{Narcissist}} narcissism]] in its [[ItsAllAboutMe ugliest form]]. His first diary entry reveals that he saw his fellow survivors from a 1982 plane crash in Yamatai as weak, stupid, and useless liabilities. As a result, he sends them sailing to their deaths simply to prove his theory that escaping the island by boat would be impossible. Eight years later, he forms the Solarii Brotherhood, an AxCrazy cult that worships Sun Queen Himiko. Mathias, however, sees no value in his followers nor Himiko, as the cult merely serves as a distraction for the other survivors to buy Mathias enough time to find the key to leaving the island by himself. As Lara Croft discovers, Mathias initiates new followers into his cult by having his recruits thrown into a chamber in the Geothermal Caverns and left to fend for themselves for days, even weeks, without water or food. This process destroyed his recruits' humanity and forced many to resort to cannibalism. Mathias also has no problem killing his own followers. When one of his men objects to destroying a bridge to stop Lara from escaping his hideout (which would kill some followers in the process), Mathias shoots the dissenter point blank and asks if there are any other “non-believers.” [[spoiler:After noticing that Lara and Conrad Roth's helicopter was shot down by a sudden lightning strike, he attacks the crash site and ultimately tosses a hatchet to kill Roth.]] Afterwards, Mathias convinces [[spoiler:Dr. Whitman]] to betray the survivors by recapturing Samantha Nishimura, Lara's best friend who is seen by Mathias as his key out of Yamatai. Not long afterwards, Mathias uses [[spoiler:Whitman]] to distract a pair of Oni and leaves his ally to die a brutal death.

In order to do so, he has created artificial parasites called GUILT, all of which are highly contagious and capable of killing their victims in horrible ways all while claiming biblical justification by equating GUILT with the Seven Plagues of Revelation and himself with the "devouring angel" Abbadon (yup, the one with the locusts) while boasting to Derek that he alone will watch as Derek and friends burn in Hell.

* ''VideoGame/XMenLegends II: Rise of Apocalypse'': BigBad ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}} is once again presented as a extremely cruel SocialDarwinist.
