* [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Lilithmon]], one of the [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Seven Great Demon Lords]] is the personification of lust. [[HornyDevils True to her name,]] she's sultry, seductive, wears a rather [[DragonLady exotic outfit]], and has one of the largest set of breasts in the franchise, rivalled by Angewomon (who is an archangel and yet ironically even more {{Stripperific}}), Venusmon (AKA the Digimon counterpart of Aphrodite/Venus, the Greek/Roman goddess of love and mad hot sex), and [[Anime/DigimonXrosWars Mervamon]]. Naturally, she lusts for many other things, including power.

Naturally, she lusts for many other things, including power. It also manifests as one of her own unique abilities--she can take the shape of whoever her chosen target desires most at the moment, like a lonely little girl's mother.


* In {{Manga/KokouNoHito}}, one of Buntarou's main struggles early on in the story is struggling with his sexual desires after an encounter with Yumi (a former classmate of his [[spoiler: who became a prostitute after her reputation got ruined]]), in contrast with his desire to be alone climbing the moutains.

* This is the FatalFlaw of Seth Brundle in ''Film/TheFly1986''. He has so devoted himself to his great professional goal -- developing teleportation technology -- that at the top of the movie he is a lonely recluse; the first scene takes place InMediasRes as he awkwardly tries to woo the beautiful journalist Veronica Quaife by offering to show him his work. She ends up interested enough in his work that he arranges for her to exclusively chronicle it, and the professional relationship not only ends up elevated to a personal one (she makes the first move), but in the process helps him finally crack the challenge of teleporting living things. However, his passion for her is so intense that he doesn't take it well when he mistakenly believes he's being cuckolded; he copes by getting drunk and deciding to jump ahead to the GrandFinale of his work: teleporting himself. He unknowingly genetically merges himself with a housefly in the process, resulting in a SlowTransformation into a HalfHumanHybrid whose passions come to hold total sway over his slipping human mind, culminating in his attempting to [[spoiler: genetically fuse himself with Veronica and their unborn child to create "the ultimate family...More human than I am alone!"]] -- with tragic results.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Film/EpicMovie'', the main character Peter is very lustful, especially towards a parody of Mystique, portrayed by Carmen Electra. Our first look at her is him imagining her dancing sexily towards him. He asks her to go to the dance with him, but he clearly seems mainly into it because of how hot she is. Hell, despite originally considering him a loser, Mystique herself becomes lustful towards Peter after he becomes king, dragging him into a tent, making out with him, and asking what he'd like her to shapeshift into before they have sex. He ends up asking for [[BreastExpansion bigger breasts and a larger ass size...,]] a unibrow, which he refers to as a "mamabrow", and finally, "Big Flabby Grandma arms"/"Bingo Wings like a fat blue Britney Spears"...even if his likings are odd, its clear his motive for getting with her was for lustful reasons (especially with the shapeshifting powers).


* In contrast to her [[KidAppealCharacter usual gimmick]], which was [[CharacterizationMarchesOn eventually]] associated [[SweetTooth with gluttony]], lust was a strong element of Solo Darling's stint in Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA Ring Warriors, her openly questioning what love was without it.[[/folder]]

* Goether the Goat-Sin of Lust from ''Anime/TheSevenDeadlySins'' is an [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionless Boy]] who spends his time trying to learn emotions from books. Any books. He has an inappropriate longing for knowledge.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TrillionGodOfDestruction'': Ashmedia, Zeabolos' blood-related cousin is the holder of the Crest of Lust. True to her Crest, she speaks with a very seductive tone and enjoys dishing out pain to her enemies, and is even known to tease others with both her words and eye-catching body. [[spoiler: Turns out she's a ''virgin'', and something of a romantic, teasing others for fun and being a surprising ShipperOnDeck for couples she finds cute. Other events show that most think her a BrainlessBeauty, and she forms a friendship with Faust, often hanging out with the woman in her laboratory.]]


* Phoebe from ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' got hit by lust pretty bad in an episode centered on the SevenDeadlySins. Of course, this only magnified what was there originally - her high school nickname was [[ReallyGetsAround freebie]].

* [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Lust]] from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' mostly provokes lust in others, since she's the literal embodiment of the sin. [[ForTheEvulz She mostly has a lust for causing harm]]. This makes sense, as the emotions she is made of came from BigBad Father who has a definite sadistic streak.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Cinder Fall wants to [[AmbitionIsEvil be strong, feared, and powerful]] by her own admission, and goes to such lengths as [[BadassTransplant replacing her arm with that of a Grimm]] and murdering Amber to [[PowerParasite take the Fall Maiden power for herself]]. Even that isn't enough for her; she just wants ''more'', and tries to take the Spring Maiden powers for herself as well, all while ranting that she's the only one worthy of them.

** Jafar in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' manipulated the Sultan and tried to forcibly marry Jasmine in order to become Sultan himself. He throws in a bit of lust for Jasmine herself once he got the power he desired.

He throws in a bit of lust for Jasmine herself once he got the power he desired. For the sake of power, he also uses Genie to become the world's most powerful sorcerer, but when he discovers he's [[AlwaysSecondBest still weaker than Genie]], he decides to use his final wish to [[BecomingTheGenie become an all-powerful genie]].


** In the original book, Captain Phoebus was more of a case of lust, what with the womanizing ("while" engaged to someone he spends most of the book seducing). But Archdeacon Frollo could still counts - he's not truly a villain, but by the end he's so unhinged and/or desperate he'd rather get Esmeralda hanged than have her refuse him.

* The ''Franchise/EvilliousChronicles'', by Vocaloid producer Music/{{Mothy}} aka [=AkunoP=]. Lust's song is "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsIOkbxTA9M Duke Venomania's Madness]]", by Gakupo Kamui. Through a DealWithTheDevil, he gets the power to lure woman into a large harem at his mansion. This has consequences for the rest of the series. Some scenes are NSFW.

* In his ''Literature/{{Confessions}}'', St. Augustine describes the lust he fell into in his youth as a whirlpool of shame that threw him from affair to affair without any rest or peace. By the time of his conversion, he managed to overcome his appetites.
* In ''Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', when Archdeacon Claude Frollo sets his eyes on the beautiful gypsy [[HotGypsyWoman Esmerelda]], he is consumed by his lust for her, which slowly [[FaceHeelTurn drives him insane]] until he decides to try to [[InsaneTrollLogic overcome his sexual desires by killing her.]] However, he's not a villain, but rather a complex and sympathetic figure. Phoebus also suffers from this. He's a shameless womanizer even while engaged.
* Brian de Bois Guilbert in ''Literature/{{Ivanhoe}}''. Though nominally a [[UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar Knight Templar]] (not a KnightTemplar, though), he stalks and tries to rape the Jewess Rebecca. In the end, during a DuelToTheDeath he dies of a heart attack, likely not because [[Creator/WalterScott Sir Walter Scott]] minded having the hero kill him but because he wanted the poetic justice of having the villain killed by his own lust.
* Creator/CSLewis:
** The author explains in ''Literature/TheFourLoves'' that the difference between Lust and Romantic Love (''eros'') lies in "his attitude to her five minutes after fruition (one does not keep the carton after one has smoked the cigarettes)."
** Also from Lewis is ''Literature/TheHorseAndHisBoy''. The second half of the book's action is based on a Calormene Prince's lust for Queen Susan, who uses this as his excuse for invasion.
* In ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'', Humbert is motivated by his lust for, well... [[strike:Lolita]] the young Dolores.
