* Almost every single one of Franchise/{{Batman}}'s more dangerous and psychotic rogues is this or has aspects of this, ComicBook/TheJoker and Scarecrow in particular judging by just how many fans they have. The Dark Knight himself can be considered a rare heroic example.

* Yuuka Kazami in ''Fanfic/ImperfectMetamorphosis'', building on the generally affable maliciousness she displays in ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' canon, is depicted as a psychotic, hammy, {{Nigh Invulnerabil|ity}}e [[TheGadfly gadfly]], being possibly the only clear cut villain in the whole ensemble, and is one of the fic's several {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s. [[spoiler:Being revealed to be a [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Great Old One]] and acquiring knowledge of the fourth wall may be factors in that as well.]]

* Zira from ''WesternAnimation/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'' is a perfect example of a psychotic widow out for revenge. Her defining moment is her obvious Villain song "My Lullaby" that explains every last twisted plan she makes and yet, [[SurpriseCreepy this is a Disney movie people.]]

* Somehow, the Franchise/EvilliousChronicles' [[VillainousGlutton Conchita]] has become a favorite of the fans, despite that she's a psychotic [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]]. Hell, Music/{{Mothy}} himself has released a huge amount of remixes for her song, and she possesses a character in Story of Evil.

* Trevor Philips of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' is this. This sociopathic, maniacal and psychotic... Canadian is ironically the most vicious of the three main characters. Often he gets ominous rumours about how unstable he is and half the time the rumours are TRUE!

* Rackaracka's personification of [[UsefulNotes/McDonalds Ronald McDonald]] distorts the iconic clown into a psychotic mess of a human being. A true badass to the name, Ronald is hilariously dark and sickening tackling themes like advertising and drug abuse with as much vulgar as possible.

** All of the Lodge Spirits edge into this, to various extents. The best example of this is probably [[LittlePeopleAreSurreal The Man From Another Place]], since [[BigBad BOB]] is ''too'' creepy to be awesome, while The Man is one of the show's most recognizable characters.

** ''The Return'' continues this fine tradition with The Woodsman, some kind of HumanoidAbomination resembles a lumberjack covered in soot. He's a pretty good example of the show's SurrealHorror tone.



* Creator/MadsMikkelsen's portrayal of ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' is no less this than Hopkin's. He is consistently terrifying, feeling less like a human psychopath and [[SatanicArchetype more like a demon come to earth and made flesh]], along with being an all-out MagnificentBastard, and he is a joy to watch because of it.

* While the works of J.R.R Tolkien already had this trope with the [[WasOnceAMan Nazguls]] in ''Film/LordOfTheRings'', Peter Jackson's adaption of ''Film/TheHobbit'' adds some examples, most famously be showing the [[GreaterScopeVillain Necromancer]][[spoiler: /Sauron]] on-screen, and [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Smaug]], the latter proving to be an outright terror thanks to SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome, and his sheer maliciousness along with his [[EvilSoundsDeep deep voice]], in spite of his allround [[EvilIsHammy hamminess]].

* Chernabog from ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' is one of the most visually-impressive villains in the entire Disney canon, a gigantic winged SatanicArchetype that commands a host of demons to dance and suffer for his pleasure.

* Judge Frollo from ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', this was one of the times when Disney stepped its sweet, loving toes towards the morbidly dark and excessive. Frollo epitomizes obsession, lust and the yearning for religious superiority. His VillainSong, suitably titled "Hellfire", is by far one the creepiest (and suggestive) musicals ever animated.

* The [[MechanicalAbomination Leviathan]] from ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire''. It's [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot a giant steampunk lobster robot]] [[EldritchAbomination of which Lovecraft would be proud]] that appears to be several miles in length (its '''mandible claws''' are bigger than the entire ''[[CoolBoat Ulysses]]''). Despite its massive size, it's smart enough to [[StealthyColossus sneak up on its prey]], and it packs a WaveMotionGun that can wipe out entire submarines in one shot. Oh, and for a character in a Disney movie, it kills a ''[[KnightOfCerebus staggering]]'' number of people.

** [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil2Remake]]Mr. X in Resident Evil 2, sure he wasn't popular at that time but then the remake makes him into a terrifying unstoppable force going after Leon and Clair that puts players on edge, all while looking snappy in a trench coat and black fedora.



* Several ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''.

Virtually every moment he is on-screen will make your skin crawl and be among the most memorable portions of the movie. He manages to be [[UpToEleven creepier than]] ''Creator/ChristopherWalken''.

** From the [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog same series]] is Metal Sonic. While Sonic himself always appears welcoming and hip, Metal Sonic...is not. Perhaps Sonic's most threatening villain, Metal Sonic is the video game version of the Terminator, his appearance always looks blood-thirsty, and with the same abilities as Sonic himself this cold-hearted, robotic monstrosity really puts his creator to shame.

* Speaking of Creator/TeamFourStar, the ''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'' versions of Alucard and Jan Valentine take the originals' existing CreepyAwesome and combine it with CrazyAwesome for two truly memorable characters that are balls-to-the-wall insane, horrifying, and badass..
** Alucard once tried to paint Integra's father's car red with goat blood, but couldn't find enough and crashed it into Britain's first Dairy Queen, repeatedly weaponized trolling as a fighting style (he [[ShutUpKirk responded to Abraham van Helsing's]] KirkSummation with "TheAristocrats", makes PedophilePriest jokes when fighting Alexander Anderson, and refused to take [[spoiler: Walter]] seriously at all when they fought), and repeatedly sent death threats to the Pope by carrier pigeon that read as such:
-->Dear Chief Replacement, I wanted to send you this friendly little letter to inform you of your imminent demise. If you're curious about the frequency of which I send these letters, it is merely to instil as much fear as I can. As if basting a turkey. Which [[BestialityIsDepraved I will then proceed to have sex with]]. [[RefugeInAudacity That's right. I'm going to]] ''[[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]'' [[SidetrackedByTheAnalogy the fear turkey]]. Follow me on Twitter [=@TheCrimsonFuckr=]!
*** After reading this, Integra's frightened by the thought of how much they could get done if Alucard put that kind of effort into his job.
** And then there's Jan Valentine, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment who's introduced by talking about a time a hooker overdosed on heroin halfway through giving him a blowjob]], which is made worse by the fact that A. He finished anyway, and B. Said hooker was implied to be ''his brother's ex-girlfriend'', threatened to skullfuck every member of the Hellsing organization, ''even the ones he killed and turned into ghouls'', forced one of Integra's men to read her a profanity-laden death threat aloud by threat of shooting off his testicles and then killed him anyway, and had quite the DyingMomentOfAwesome.
-->'''Jan''': I don't know what's fuckin' funnier: The fact that you think that your titless ass intimidates me, or that you think [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness my boss would let me live if ya did]]. ''(suddenly bursts into flame)'' AND NOW I'M ON FUCKIN' FIRE! SO NOW IT'S FREE GAME! ''(flips the bird)'' The one who sent me...

* Puppet Master from ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' is an eerie disembodied torso of what appears to be a female android. It's voice though is male and discomfortingly cold (even for a machine). Once more Puppet Master's logic is incredibly evolved, capable of free will and breaking down the very fabric of human existence into a comprehendible theory of data. But above all else, Puppet Master succeeds in being a villain that will truly make you think. Perhaps even debate if technology could really gain sentient life someday?
