* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Lord Xykon.
** Though the comic also features Redcloak (a [[TheDragon Dragon]] who is in some ways [[HyperCompetentSidekick even more dangerous than his boss]]), the Dark One (a goblin god whom Redcloak serves), The Snarl (an EldritchAbomination that hasn't done anything yet but could destroy the universe if released), Tarquin (the MagnificentBastard EvilOverlord who's also a main character's father), the Interfiend Co-operation Committee (a trio of fiendish Chessmasters who are playing everybody else more or less) and Hel (a goddess seeking world domination) -- so there's definitely more than a bit of a BigBadEnsemble going on rather than ''just'' Xykon. As he's arguably the most powerful non-divine villain in the comic and is the most central single villain to the plot, he'd still qualify as ''the'' Big Bad, barring a (not entirely impossible) future upset.

Other examples (mainly for mini arcs) include vampire queen Lysinda, demon general Lord Horribus, corrupt nobleman Sir John Jacobs, and a totalitarian dictator known only as "His Masterness".
** Though His Masterness turned out to be a subversion.

* ''[[Webcomic/FifteenMinds Blue Moon Blossom]]'' reveals the big bad to be a giant, incorporeal snake-like demon that turned an entire village to stone, for no obvious reason other than ForTheEvulz. Due to the lack of text or dialogue in the comic, the extent to which the main cast was aware of its existence for the duration of the story is not made clear.

He acts as the GreaterScopeVillain for a good chunk of it while the other antagonists also compete for top spot.
