* It's mentioned in Fanged Paw's entry that his [[TheBeastmaster animal-controlling abilities]] make him an absolute ''nightmare'' on the battlefield, especially in forested areas - with [[TheEmpath empathy]], he can calm and tame even the most dangerous monsters, and with {{Telepathy}}, he can communicate with any animal and "possess" them by forging {{Psychic Link}}s with them, allowing him to see and hear things from their view. This essentially means that he can be ''anywhere'', listening to every word you say and watching every action you make, even if he's not physically there. ''Nowhere is safe''.
** In addition, his entry notes that Fanged Paw is ''very'' good at psychological warfare. His ''modus operandi'' consists of him using in-depth knowledge of the terrain and his animal-controlling abilities mentioned above to stalk his enemies like a predator, gradually unnerving his enemies as they start feeling like they're being followed. However, his enemies don't even know that he's the one following them, because Fanged Paw can [[MakeMeWannaShout use his voice]] to mimic various beasts and other wildlife - essentially using ParanoiaFuel to break down his enemies' sanity. Once his enemies have been pushed to their absolute breaking point, Fanged Paw will suddenly emerge and utterly decimate them, causing the survivors to retreat in such a broken and disorderly fashion that they are left easy pickings for his allies and brothers. It's a good thing that Fanged Paw is a benevolent WarriorPrince and on the heroes' side...

* Noble Grace shows through her actions and behavior just how ''dangerous'' a VillainWithGoodPublicity can be in the Codexverse. She's a very affable, kind, and maternal teacher who genuinely believed in both her students and Ponykind's inner potential for greatness, to the point where she saw nothing wrong with joining the Alicorn Ascendancy and performing unethical experiments on young foals and teenagers who showed great promise and talent in order to discover the secrets of divine Ascension. Despite being known for testing her students and encouraging them to rise above their current capabilities, she is ultimately nothing more than a manipulative and insidious hypocrite who uses her lovable demeanor to persuade those same students into participating in her experiments for the greater good, making them believe that whatever she's doing to them would come out good in the end, even though it's likely they wouldn't survive in the process. Noble Grace also believes so strongly in convictions that when called out on her actions and hypocrisy, her personality does a complete 180 and she becomes snippy and condescending, even angry. She was so highly regarded in public that no one, [[AdultFear not even the families of her students she experimented on]], realized the mental and moral bankruptcy of her character until one filly, Scarlet Bell, noticed that something was off and decided to confront her. ''Alone''. [[BrokenPedestal Is it any wonder that Scarlet Bell came out scarred and traumatized afterwards]]?

[[folder:Crystal Prism]][[folder:Ardent Cadenza/Leastweasel]]
* Ardent is probably one of the most dangerous villains in the Codexverse as well as the most [[TragicVillain tragic]]. She was once a kind and benevolent healer who, in spite of being jealous of the princesses, truly wanted what was best for Equestria. But after becoming slowly corrupted by the very disease she expunged from ponies, along with some personal tragedies and finding out about her [[SacrificialLamb fate]], she snapped and became a vengeful demonic force that seeks to start a war with Equestria and whatever faction she seemingly serves and then kill Twilight and her friends to spite the princesses and then encase the world in darkness and despair as payback [[WoobieDestroyerOFWorlds for all of her suffering]].
* Her condition, along with the other victims of the plague, are quite disturbing in of itself. Some of the victims have been described as turning into something that barely looked pony and, when Ardent tried healing some of The Storm King's forces for him, she accidentally infects them with that very plague, turning them into beasts that were weaponized in desperation due to the Storm Empire losing the war. Now that she snapped and lost all semblance of a moral compass, what's stopping her from infecting others with her plague?
* The Tree of Harmony telling her that it was her destiny to be destroyed by the Elements of Harmony. To say Ardent [[GoMadFromTheRevelation didn't take the revelation that she will be killed by Princess Celestia's protégé lightly]] would be an understatement.
--->'''Ardent:''' So I'm not the saviour of Ponykind, but its [[SacrificialLamb sacrificial lamb]]. Born only to die by the hoof of the heir apparent of some-pony who had everything handed to her. That is the fate the gods have CHOSEN to bestow upon me?!

While ultimately well-meaning, he was extremely biased against anything he considered "evil", and hated himself for not being able to get rid of his own flaws. When he tried purging the then-unborn Belyolen of his flaws, he was horrified to discover he ended up creating Temnobog instead and emotionally abused him for being born, believing his younger son was evil incarnate. He didn't know (or care) that Temnobog had ''never'' done anything evil to him or anyone else, and [[SelfFulfillingProphecy only became an evil god for a time because of his family treating him as evil]].

----
* Surtr's Codexverse characterization is this: A [[LackOfEmpathy remorseless]], [[{{Sadist}} sadistic]] and [[OmnicidalManiac destructively]] [[PsychopathicManchild psychopathic]] [[OurGiantsAreDifferent Fire Jotunn]] [[PhysicalGod Divine]], which does not even remotely SCRATCH the surface of what horrors and atrocities he had been up to.
** To emphasize: The Fire Jotunns have many [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal Maniacs]] among their ranks from what we know so far. And [[EvenEvilHasStandards even they are horrified and disgusted with Surtr]] by the present day. And he has completely NO excuse nor restrain for any of it.
** Surtr started out with a compulsion to destroy like all Fire Jotunn mortals and gods, but his desire for destruction eventually developed into [[DescentIntoAddiction an uncontrollable addiction]], and his dark urges went to increasingly monstrous extremes and develop into full-blown sadism, [[ForTheEvulz his cruelty, lust and hunger]] growing beyond even what [[EvenEvilHasStandards his parents and people could tolerate]], leading to his exile. Even BEFORE he became part of the Ragnarok Cycle, he was already a monster among monsters, laying waste to hundreds of lands and their gods just to feed his desire to destroy. [[FromBadToWorse And it all only got WORSE after he joined forces]] [[AncientConspiracy with the Shadowed Ones to manipulate Ragnarok]].
** [WIP]
** One of the highlights of his destructive sadism is that he not only indulges his cruelty and hunger on victims he captured, he also indulges in his lust on them, making him a SerialRapist, and that itself is notable for [[UpToEleven just how extreme it is in both his motives and scale]]. Surtr not only forces himself on [[SexSlave captive surviving goddesses]] of each Cervidian Pantheon and [[BadBoss his own subjects]], he also [[VillainousIncest have his way with]] [[ChildByRape any children they produce]], then [[SerialEscalation any GRAND-children they produce]], and so forth. And the reason he does all this?
