* ''ComicBook/ThePunisher'': [[AxCrazy Face]], from Becky Cloonan's 2016-2017 run, is a [[PsychoForHire psychopathic mercenary]] working for [[PrivateMilitaryContractors Condor Private Military Company]]. Face is in charge of Condor's operation to distribute [[FantasticDrug EMC]], an experimental drug that gives people superhuman reflexes but also burns them out over time. Face has set up an office at a local insane asylum, [[PlayingWithSyringes where he is testing EMC on the inmates]]. Face also likes to [[TearOffYourFace remove the faces of his victims]] and place them on his office wall. Face is tasked with killing Punisher after Punisher attacks Condor's operations. Face kidnaps a DEA agent named Henderson and removes his face. When Punisher and another DEA agent named Ortiz confront Face at the asylum, he reveals he pumped Henderson and the asylum inmates full of EMC and sics them on Punisher and Ortiz. While escaping from the asylum, Face flags down a bus, murders all the passengers inside and hijacks it. After murdering some patients in an ambulance, Face kidnaps Ortiz and [[ImAHumanitarian plans to cook and eat her]], but seemingly overdoses on EMC. Face goes into a coma and awakens some months later, wanting revenge on the Punisher. Face goes to a local movie theater and takes hostages, threatening to murder a hostage every minute until Punisher faces him. Face has murdered half the theater's audience when Punisher confronts him.

* "Girls in White Dresses" arc, by Gregg Hurwitz, Laurence Campbell, et al.: "The Heavy"--[[spoiler:Jigsaw]]--is the [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain racist, misogynistic]] co-leader of a [[TheCartel large drug cartel]]. He and his associates have been terrorizing a Mexican border town by kidnapping [[WouldHitAGirl women]] and girls--as young as [[WouldHurtAChild twelve]]--and having them work literally to death as slave labor under terrible conditions in his drug lab. Frank notes that the number of crosses in a cemetery indicates the massive scale of the cartel. The Heavy tries to drive Frank away by placing an already-dead little kid at the scene of the shootout to make Frank believe he shot her. Aside from being a very BadBoss, The Heavy plans to sexually assault one of the workers, and, when Punisher's closing in, orders his men to kill the remaining workers before they can talk to the police.

** [[AxCrazy Nicolas "Nicky" Cavella]] may [[FauxAffablyEvil seem polite]], but in fact is so psychotic that [[EvenEvilHasStandards even other Mafiosi despise him]]. Nicky started his career in murder when he was [[EnfantTerrible just a little boy]] by executing his parents and 12-year-old sister, conspiring with his aunt to gain control of the family. Later on, Nicky dealt with a particularly obstinate Chinese gangster by murdering the man's elder sons after having fed the man his youngest son, who was only in junior high school. Upon his return to New York following Frank Castle's rampage amongst the Cesare family, Nicky slaughters multiple people, betraying his own allies and throwing them to Frank to cover his own escape while also having his right-hand psychopath Pittsy torture and castrate a CIA agent for information. When he returns later, Nicky enrages Frank further by digging up the remains of his family and filming himself pissing on them. When his schemes meet a predictable end, Nicky attempts to escape by using a little boy as a hostage with a gun to his head. A DirtyCoward hiding under a tough guy exterior, Cavella was nevertheless the worst of the gangsters Frank had to face.

** "The Slavers" arc: [[RuthlessForeignGangsters Romanians]] Tiberiu Bulat, his son Cristu Bulat, and their associate (and Cristu's lover) Vera Konstantin are the titular [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil slavers]]. Tiberiu and Cristu led an Eastern European militia during UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars responsible for ethnic cleansing, slaughtering several entire villages until Cristu got the idea to take young women captive. They forced them into sexual slavery and went to the United States to export the business. Tiberiu is a [[AxCrazy sadistic, trigger-happy madman]] who'll kill anyone at the slightest provocation, while Cristu and Vera are [[PragmaticVillainy practical business types]], but just as evil, with Vera coming up with the strategy of "rape them to break them". These three are not above killing babies, as they send an email that shows the dead baby of an escaped victim.
