* [[EvilMentor Dickson]] starts the game off as a seemingly helpful mentor and father figure to the protagonists, before revealing himself in the climax to be the [[EvilAllAlong vilest of Zanza's disciples]] and a willing aide to the destruction and recreation of the universe, shooting Shulk to release Zanza into the physical world. Cheerfully asserting that he's NotBrainwashed when they propose he is, Dickson attempts to murder all of his former comrades while helping to lead to Telethia slay all life on Bionis. When the High Entia army shows up to save the heroes, he and fellow disciple Lorithia [[BalefulPolymorph convert them all into mindless Telethia]], including Melia's brother, Kallian. Dickson descends on Colony 6, now the residence of the surviving people of Bionis, with more Telethia, [[OmnicidalManiac hoping to exterminate them all]], taunting Melia and Kallian that he may be Meia's boyfriend in the next life. When encountered by Shulk and his group, Dickson reveals that he has no real loyalty to Zanza and only works for him in order to [[AGodAmI acquire the powers of god]] in the next world, and is even [[TheStarscream willing to betray his master for more power]] when it's revealed that Shulk might be stronger than Zanza.

* The egotistical, giggling [[MadScientist Dr. Castrofari]] has [[WouldHurtAChild children]] all over Alrest drugged and kidnapped as fodder for his twisted experiments, which aim to forcefully augment his specimens into artificial Blades. When Perun confronts him on his deeds, Castrofari offers to let the children go if Perun surrenders herself as his next subject--only to laugh and confess he'll murder all of the children anyways, giddily announcing his intention to experiment on Perun until she’s nothing but a withered husk.

* Grandmaster Luxaar (Ravok)

to:

* [[BigBad Grandmaster Luxaar]] is the lord and master of the Ganglion Coalition, a galaxy-wide crime syndicate and tyrannical empire that Luxaar (Ravok)rules with cruel fanaticism. In his quest for "purity" across the cosmos, Luxaar regularly commits genocide against entire races, enslaving those he does not exterminate and often forcing innocents to follow his rule lest he subject their worlds to similar fates. Upon learning of humanity and its connection to the Ganglion's former masters, Luxaar deems humankind a plague deserving of [[KillAllHumans annihilation]], and proceeds to lead an assault on Earth that wipe out billions of humans, after which he pursues the survivors across the universe. Luxaar's insane xenophobia comes to end after he massacres his way through dozens of human soldiers and attempts to murder the twenty million sleeping vestiges of humanity.

* [[BigBad Zanza]], the [[GodIsEvil god]] of Bionis, is [[TheChessmaster the mastermind]] behind the game's plot and a [[EvilIsPetty monstrous excuse]] of a deity whose insatiable pride ruins countless lives in an effort to prolong his own. Revealed in [[VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2 the sequel]] to be one half of the scientist Klaus who accidentally destroyed the universe in his experiments, Zanza became a cruel monster who repeatedly [[OmnicidalManiac exterminated all life]] on Bionis through the Telethia whenever they drifted away from him, even possessing the noble giant Argas and managing to destroy Agniratha in his attempt to destroy the rival goddess Meyneth alongside all Mechonis. Living on in the Monado after he was sealed away, Zanza murders a young [[TheProtagonist Shulk]] and the expedition team who discover the Monado before reviving the boy and using him as a host for years. In the final act of the game, Zanza has Shulk killed again by his disciple Dickson to take form once again, transforms the High Entia into Telethia to repeat the extermination of Bionis all over again, and murders both Meyneth and Egil before destroying Mechonis, dismissing everything and everyone as mere bacteria and food to sustain his own cruel existence. Even in spite of all of his hollow justifications for the perpetual cycle of misery he has created, Zanza is revealed at heart to be nothing more than the definition of [[ItsAllAboutMe megalomania and endless arrogance]], disgusting almost every single being who knows of his true evil.

* Originally a [[DirtyCoward slimy, cowardly weasel of a man]], Mumkhar ends up becoming something [[FromNobodyToNightmare far worse entirely]]. After smugly leaving his close friends Dunban and Dickson to die on the battlefield, he is captured by the robotic Mechon and turned into one of their own, and willingly betrays his people by throwing in his lot with the Mechon and aiding them in their conquest. Going by the name of Metal Face, he leads a squad of Mechon in an attack on Colony 9, slaughters scores of people, and personally murders Dunban's sister Fiora, all out of hatred, envy, and spite towards the man, and gleefully brags about it to [[TheProtagonist Shulk]], her LoveInterest. Later on, he leads an assault on Eryth Sea, which ends with him killing Sorean, the emperor of the High Entia. After his final defeat at the hands of Shulk and company, he doesn't hesitate to try to murder them all [[UngratefulBastard after they decide to spare his life]]. Fueled entirely by spite and cruelty, Metal Face cements his status as one of the party's most hated enemies.
