* [[ItsAllAboutMe Geocron Striegov]] is first introduced as just a typical Special Ops general under Silver. Shortly into his first appearance, however, he [[{{Sadist}} shows glee at torturing people]], especially at [[WhipItGood whipping Kohaku Hearts]]. Then, when [[WellIntentionedExtremist Creed Graphite]] resurfaced, he suddenly goes turncoat and then join forces with Creed, not caring about the latter's destructive ambition. During the next encounter, Geocron reveals that he is obsessed with collecting the Spiria Cores of living beings, taking great pleasure in seeing the suffering of those who lost their cores, one of them being Silver's daughter Lapis, and the reason why he became an AntiVillain in the first place. In the end, he willfully Xerom-ized for nothing but power, caring about nothing but his own collection and desires.

* [[BigBad Zilva Madigan]] is the genocidal leader of the Four Stars and the one [[TheManBehindTheMan pulling the strings behind the Kingdom of Callegea]] to ensure that the Gajuma reign supreme and the [[FinalSolution Huma are all eradicated]]. To achieve this, Zilva possessed the body of Dr. Barrs, the most revered doctor in the kingdom, then used it to poison and kill Ladras Lindblum, the King of Karegia. Following this, Zilva used Dr. Barrs's body to attack his good friend, Eugene, forcing Eugene to kill Barrs in self-defense, leading to Eugene's exile for "murder." Afterwards, Zilva began manipulating the naïve daughter of King Ladras, the new queen, Agarte. [[EvilChancellor Zilva]] convinced Agarte to kidnap beautiful Huma girls for Agarte to switch bodies with, kickstarting the events of the game, and later convinced Agarte to revive Geyorkias, the King of Sacred Beasts. This was all done so that Zilva could take over Callegea and use Geyorkias's power to [[FantasticRacism cleanse the world of Huma]].
* [[ALoadOfBull Tohma]], one of the aformentioned Zilva's Four Stars, stands out even in comparison to his boss as a vile being, especially for [[BreakTheCutie his treatment]] of two characters, Hilda and her friend Millitsa. Tohma was intrigued in the combat potential of Halves, and so lures out and abducts Hilda from her loving parents and kills her father in one punch when he tries to get her back, laughing at how weak he was. He proceeds to raise Hilda as a {{Tykebomb}}, making her and Millitsa--whom Tohma has brainwashed--grow up in an environment where they would be neglected and ignored for being Halves and lies to them about being able to gift them with "pure" bodies if they do as he says. He then trains them to torture and kill while they are still children, abducting people for them to "practice" on. When Hilda breaks off her horns in an attempt to pass as human, Tohma sends her on a suicide mission he fully expects her to fail and reveals he lied to her when she does, making her powers go out of control which could easily kill her. [[FantasticRacism Racist]] and cruel, he only gets his comeuppance in a MutualKill with his partner [[BoomerangBigot Saleh]], who Tohma kills (allegedly on Zilva's orders) for being Huma.
* The aforementioned [[SmugSnake Saleh]], Tohma's partner in the Four Stars, is a BoomerangBigot who willingly goes along with Zilva's plans to eradicate all Huma, despite being one himself. Obsessed with "The power of the heart," he aims to destroy this power by [[ForTheEvulz causing misery and despair wherever he goes]], be it by hurting civilians for no reason or by deliberately heightening tensions between Huma and Gajuma--said tensions powering an EldritchAbomination. No one is safe from his malice, [[WouldHurtAChild including children]] or the comic relief villains, whom he brainwashes into attacking the heroes until they either kill them or die trying. Cruel and twisted, he is disposed of as the first human to die as part of Zilva's plan, and as he lies dying he kills his partner Tohma as one last cruel act.

If someone cannot afford his taxes, Ragou sends his mercenaries to take their loved ones (including children) as ones--including children--as collateral. He keeps these loved ones in a basement full of monsters. When the heroes confront him over this, he explains that [[ForTheEvulz he finds people getting eaten by monsters to be entertaining]]. Ragou offers only one hope to his people: if If they kill a vicious monster and bring back its horn as proof, they will never have to pay taxes again. Of course, this monster would make short work of most people who try to fight it. The heroes eventually discover that the storms around Nor Harbor are created by a [[AppliedPhlebotinum a special Blastia]] in Ragou's mansion, showing that he orchestrated the suffering of his people for his own amusement.



* Geocron Striegov is first introduced as just a typical Special Ops general under Silver. Shortly into his first appearance, however, he [[{{Sadist}} shows glee at torturing people]], especially at [[WhipItGood whipping Kohaku Hearts]]. Then, when [[WellIntentionedExtremist Creed Graphite]] resurfaced, he suddenly goes turncoat and then join forces with Creed, not caring about destructive ambition. During the next encounter, Geocron reveals that he is obsessed with collecting the Spiria Cores of living beings, taking great pleasure in seeing the suffering of those who lost their cores, one of them being Silver's daughter Lapis, and the reason why he became an AntiVillain in the first place. In the end, he willfully Xerom-ized for nothing but power, [[ItsAllAboutMe caring about nothing but his own collection and desires]].

''[[AC: VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia]]''
* [[EvilGenius Kvar the Fury Tempest]] is a MadScientist infamous for being the cruelest of the Desian Grand Cardinals. Heartless and sadistic, Kvar runs a Human Ranch where his [[HumanResources prisoners are turned into Exospheres]] in a process that leaves the party horrified. Discovering that some of his prisoners escaped from the ranch to the village of Luin, Kvar attacks Luin, destroying the village, killing many and capturing the survivors for his experiments. When [[TheProtagonist Lloyd]] encounters Kvar, the Cardinal brags about how he removed the Exosphere from Lloyd's mother, causing [[TragicMonster her to turn into a monster]] and attack both her child and her lover, Kratos, which resulted in Kratos killing her to save their son. The depth of Kvar's depravity is such that even his own men are [[EvenEvilHasStandards appalled by him]].
* [[EvilGenius Iron Will Rodyle]] is another Desian Grand Cardinal who shares Kvar's penchant for [[MadScientist mad science]]. Taking over Kvar's experiments following his death, Rodyle manages his own Human Ranches and is working to create a superweapon, the Mana Cannon, in order to destroy the Tower of Salvation, [[TheStarscream overthrow his boss]], and become the ruler of two worlds. When the party frees the Ranch's prisoners, Rodyle manages to trap the prisoners again and floods the room they're in, [[ForcedToWatch forcing the party to watch]]. Following his defeat, Rodyle activates the self-destruct sequence of his Human Ranch to make sure [[TakingYouWithMe the heroes and everyone else in the Ranch dies with him]].

* [[CreepyChild Rommy]] is an Inquisitor for the Church of Janna, a {{Fantastic Racis|m}}t organization that labels all Leimorneans as heretics and wants them wants them captured for magical experiments that harvest their souls. Not only is she a [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior gleeful participant]] in this organization, she's a cruel [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who kills people for fun then blames it on her prisoners (usually innocent people who happen to be [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent Leimorneans]]), [[ColdBloodedTorture tortures]] and brainwashes said prisoners, and sics Caius's brainwashed dad on him for fun and then kills the guy (in front of his son) after she gets bored of their fight. We see her kill the main heroine's parents for no reason as her EstablishingCharacterMoment and it's implied that she has a lot more victims than the ones we see. She also messes with Rubia's perception of her friends via HannibalLecture, again, because she thought it was amusing to watch her resulting HeroicBSOD. Everything she does is ForTheEvulz and she is utterly unrepentant about her crimes. While she may be possessed by a Spot, it is implied that the Spot IS her, and Spots are shown to have a sense of morality (if an [[BlueAndOrangeMorality unusual one]]).

* [[DiscOneFinalBoss Alexei Dinoia]] is the Commandant of the Imperial Knights. However, he betrays his Empire in an attempt to conquer the world. To accomplish this, Alexei orchestrates a genocide of the Entelexeia, the race that protects the world, so he can harvest the powerful apatheia from their corpses. Two of his minions are forced to obey him because he will shut off their artificial hearts at the first sign of defiance. He tortures Estelle, a member of the royal family he was sworn to serve, to force her to use her powers to activate Zaude, an ancient superweapon. Using Estelle for this purpose floods Zaphias, the capital city of the Empire, with deadly aer and vicious monsters. While the original version may have positive qualities, the English translation removes these.
