    • Ask Jappleack: Appelox, the former Titan of Honesty, one of the ancient Titans who created Equestria, later betrayed his siblings and ate all of them, and became a reality-eating monster. In the present, Appelox had been devouring entire planes of existence, all of which were populated, to build up enough power to break a barrier his sister Twilus had placed around Equestria Prime—the version of Equestria seen in the show—and complete his consumption of the Multiverse. While talking to Jappleack, Appelox reveals that he was also the one who had sent his two sons, Discord and Wolflor, to destroy everything and everyone in her version of Equestria, and is the reason that her sister is dead.
  • The Assassination of Twilight Sparkle: Amadeus Blueblood is a powerful Canterlot noble who at first just treated ponies of lesser status, especially the guards and servants, like trash. He's soon revealed to be far worse, involved in, among other deeds, bribery, blackmail and outright assassinations. Manipulating his own son, who he's heavily implied to have corrupted into becoming what he is at the time of the story, he has him assassinate Twilight Sparkle; blackmails Gallant Heart with his beloved brother's life; and has the entire conspiracy, including his son, brutally killed to cover his tracks.

Sanies proceeds to massacre a village in the Dragon Lands to gain Celestia's attention and to take over her mind. Failing at this, Sanies tricks Luna and Discord into resurrecting the Storm King, allowing him to go on a magic-fueled rampage before betraying him and using his power to destroy the world. When Sanies's master returns, Sanies uses Chrysalis's body to disguise himself as a corrupted Star-Swirl and uses corrupted illusions of the other Pillars so he and his master can convince Stygian to become the Pony of Shadows again.

  • Codex Equus: Khuligan the Brutal is a Giant raider living in the Moroz Valley region who has terrorized it for years. Extorting the settlers of the region even if it'd condemn them to a slow death by starvation, any village that can't pay his toll would be destroyed. While eating some, he would choose victims at random, even smaller Giants, and slowly crush them to paste under his hooves or dismember them with his teeth—or worse; he was previously exiled from his homeland for similar brutality. When the town of Moroz defies him, he amasses a huge raiding party to raze the entire valley to the ground out of petty spite.
  • The Dear Sweetie Belle Continuity: "Dear Cutie Mark Crusaders" Arc Villain, former Captain Feather Duster, was fired for drunkenly flooding rabbit holes during Winter Wrap-Up, taking revenge by causing a catastrophic storm, killing Applejack's parents.

Lashing out at Dash again, Feather Duster forces her to choose between saving Scootaloo and stopping him from unleashing another, even more destructive storm. After seemingly being stopped, Feather Duster returns in "Cutie Mark Crusaders Dream Warriors", where his disembodied spirit returns to feed off the nightmares of ponies and tries to possess Scootaloo's body to murder Dash.

When Checker's attempts at breaking Trixie's confidence fail, she tries to murder Dash with a lightning bolt as a response to her not doing what Checker wanted, and has the Diamond Dogs kidnap Trixie so she can force her to choose between leaving Ponyville forever or watch as she destroys the homes and livelihoods of her friends, dumping her in the desert when she chose to leave, still intending on following through her threat anyway. When her plans were publicly exposed, she traps Trixie, the Mane Six, and herself in their dreams, knowing that others won't be able to do anything because forcefully waking up a pony affected by a dream invasion spell would kill the target. She then exploits the inner doubts of the Mane Six, in the forms of their friends and families turning against them because of said self-doubt. As for Trixie, she drops the manipulation and actively tries to murder her, taking the form of a mutated Ursa Major specifically so Trixie would die terrified.

Publicly accusing Celestia and the Mane Six—except Twilight—of focusing more on the wedding than on national security, Jewelius rallies up the disillusioned populace and royal guards and takes Celestia's position as ruler of Equestria by force. As king, Jewelius has his enemies exiled, orders the guards who were still loyal to Celestia to be murdered and replaced with criminals from the dungeons, raises the taxes in Ponyville and allowing the population there to starve just to spite the Mane Six, betraying Chrysalis and planning to enslave the Changelings, and ordering Celestia's execution when she returns.

Gralo also gives breaking lectures to the Princesses and threatens to suck Cadance dry to make them suffer.

  • The Nuptialverse: Discord, from "Metamorphosis", is far more malicious than his later redeemed canon self. He is first introduced offering the rogue Pegasus that will soon be Chrysalis a deal that, in exchange for her servitude, she will have the power of all three tribes. He then made a hidden fourth tribe of ponies, the Flutterponies, painfully transform into the monstrous Changelings so the Pegasus can have an army. After the Pegasus and her changeling army ambushed the meeting, Discord reveals himself and murders the tribe leaders and everypony in the building in unusually cruel methods. When the Pegasus was growing impatient and wondering when Discord would hold up his end of the bargain, he has the Changelings turn the Pegasus into their queen, explaining that he had promised her "the power of all three tribes". When Chrysalis protested, he tortured her and told her she should be grateful for what he did and that she didn't wind up like Celestia and Luna, who he casually revealed to have Forced to Watch as he murdered everyone blood-related to them before making them immortal.

Being a Child Prodigy with an unnatural level of intelligence and an understanding of magic, she crafted the Concept Killing Spear, and set about trying to use it to wipe Cupid and Venus from existence, not caring that she would erase countless lives from existence in the process. After being killed by Venus, her spirit is shown the results of her actions of killing Cupid.

She had tens of thousands of ponies executed under "suspicion" of being Changelings, along with several thousand more who dared oppose her, and still more were killed by her monstrous Iron Wolves. At the same time, she herself had been replacing ponies for years with her Changelings, keeping the real ones underground in hundreds of cocoons. She had kept the real Twilight, along with Sterling, the young Alicorn meant to take the place of Princess Luna, in cocoons to act as sort of magic battery chargers, and attempted to doom Sterling's sister Gold Lily to the same fate. When Twilight's friends arrive in the future, she attempts to have them imprisoned in cocoons as well, and when Fluttershy attacks her, she has the guard who let go of her brutally killed by an Iron Wolf.

He regularly beat his wife, Melanie, and beat Mercury mostly out anger and sadism.

On that job, the target had his daughter with him and he held her at gunpoint with the intent to kill simply because she was a witness. First, he forced Mercury to kill her father right in front of her, despite his own son's protests to at least kill her first so she didn't have to watch her father die.

Ruthless and manipulative since she was a teenager, Raven abandoned Yang after the death of Taiyang, joining up with Salem after seeing her power, beginning their alliance by decapitating Tyrian. Raven returned to her tribe and killed her father to take his place as leader. She then leads raids against villages, where men, women, and child are abducted to be sold into slavery, while the rest are tied up to be left as Grimm bait so she and her tribe can escape. Two of these raids resulted in Ren and Nora being orphaned. Years later, Raven is tasked to kill Ruby by Salem.

Ruby also breaks into houses and slaughters the families inside, not even sparing children or babies. One of her worst acts was to break into a barn, kill an old lady, then "violate" a boy her age to the point he became a Death Seeker. During Vale's bombing, Ruby blocked the escape route so that she could kill the survivors who wanted to flee. When meeting Cinder's group, she barely remembered what she did to them during Vale's bombing, including taking Cinder's eye.

Indus and Blaze then attempted to kill Lila and Penny, but Indus ditched Blaze to save himself when the latter managed to turn the tables.

  • Echoes: In a fanfiction where the main characters were traveling through the multiverse, several characters stood out by their sheer monstrosity:
    • Kenta Ayatsuri is a jōnin of Konoha, as well as a philanthropist who founded an orphanage. However, Kenta turned the orphans into Tykebombs and prostitutes to fund his activities. Training Kamui, the Wave-Verse's Kakashi, Kenta turned him into another tyke-bomb. When Minato added Kamui to his own team, taking him away from Kenta, the latter contacted the enemy in order to sabotage Team Minato's mission to destroy the Kannabi Bridge, and to get rid of them, barring Kamui, leading to Obito's death. Fleeing Konoha after his crimes were discovered, he sent brainwashed children to massacre Konoha families, and, in the Wave-Verse, kidnaps a pregnant Rin. Killing the baby, Kenta tortured Rin to death and greeted Kamui with her corpse when he tried to rescue her. He also tried to recreate Kamui with other children, killing or wounding them in the process. In The Past Enemy Arc, Kenta is introduced horribly killing Kin, a little girl, because she cried when he gave her to a brothel. He attempted to kidnap Rin and Kakashi's child, succeeding with Rin. When his subordinate suggested to kill Kamui, Kenta killed him. When confronted by Kamui, he blamed everyone but himself for his crimes and revealed that he committed all of this to turn Kakashi into his "masterpiece", and so that he will be remembered. When Kamui replies that he will do everything to forget him, a spiteful Kenta attempts to kill him and Rin.

Izanagi trained her but also horribly abused her to his content, forcing her into prostitution and torturing her when she rebelled. When she didn't fulfill his expectations, he planned to replace her with her baby son, Itachi, out of misogyny, leading to his death at Izanami's hands. When resurrected by Susanoo, Izanagi allied with him against the Arashi Clan only so that he could get back at Izanami and seal her alive forever. He revived 5 Kages with Edo Tensei to use as puppets against the Arashi clan. When curb-stomped by the Sage of the Six Paths, he had no problem dropping the moon on Earth to stall him, planning to go to another universe to start over his plan if it destroyed the planet. Thoroughly depraved beneath his soft-spoken character, Izanagi left an impact despite his short appearance.
    • In the "Ame-Verse", Yagura, the Fourth Mizukage, sheds any redeeming qualities his canon counterpart had. Under the guise of "human progress", Yagura started in Kiri's Ninja Academy a graduation program consisting of students killing each other, in order to weed out the weak in favor of the strong. With his "Blood Police", Yagura kills any "weak" civilian, shinobi, clansman and started a Final Solution to the bloodline wielders' question. Allying with Ame's Hanzo, he chose to kill Nagato, Yahiko and Konan, not due to his alliance with Hanzo, but because he hated them, saying that he would have killed them even if he wasn't allied with Hanzo. After having killed Yahiko, he laughs at Konan while she cries over Yahiko's death, and mocks Hanzo when the latter regretted Yahiko. After being challenged with Hanzo in a fight by Kazama, the original Naruto, and Tsukiyom, Kazama's World's Madara Uchiha, he almost kills part of the audience during one of his attacks, attempted to eat Kazama during the fight, and released the Sanbi from his body out of spite after his defeat, telling it to avenge him. Believing that Jinchuriki were the Master Race, Yagura was accurately described as an "all-around monster".
    • In the "Road to Ninja" verse, Obito Uchiha also lacked any qualities his canon counterpart had. After defeating the Shinobi Alliance, Obito launched the Infinite Izanagi, killing his entire world and creating his own personal paradise, in which he created everyone the way he wanted them, and joined the Teikoku. When Kazama and Tsukiyomi entered the "Road to Ninja" world, Obito, being a psychologist, kept an eye on the former during their sessions. Despite having already gained his personal paradise, Obito plans to spread the Infinite Izanagi through the multiverse, at the risk of destroying countless worlds just so that he can live his fantasies. He doesn't even care about his own creations, abusing his "favorite son" Menma, and destroying his world's Konoha and several of his inhabitants, seeing them as ultimately replaceable, even his supposed Love Interest, Rin. When defeated by Kazama, Obito released the Ten-Tails from his body out of spite. Believing himself to be a god, Obito was nothing more than a Psychopathic Manchild who wanted to fulfill his wishes no matter what.

In his quest for eternal life, he creates over a hundred Horcruxes, personally murdering a single person for each one.

After over a decade of effortlessly crushing his enemies and committing various atrocities, Voldemort imprints his own personality onto a young toddler, resulting in Harry being "remade" in Tom Riddle's image. Ten years later, having lost his original body, Voldemort possesses an adventurer named Quirinus Quirrell—turning the man into a prisoner in his own body—and applies for the position of the Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor in Hogwarts. In order to convince Harry to abandon his idealistic ways and make the boy into his own Worthy Opponent, "Quirrell" decides to psychologically break Harry first by attempting to send Hermione to Azkaban, then by brutally murdering her in front of Harry's eyes. Once Quirrell realizes that it made Harry more dangerous than expected, he resolves to kill the boy to get rid of the one threat to his immortality.

  • Unnamed Kirby fan comic by Nitro: This interpretation of Zero is far worse than its canon counterpart. Ordering Gooey to be disposed of because it sees it as weak and useless, it personally discards of any positive emotions it could use for good. When it turns out Gooey wasn't killed, it orders a Dark Matter to hunt down every living thing on Popstar and kill Gooey, and when this Dark Matter can't bring itself to do this and falls to Kirby, Zero subjects him to a more painful death by giving it a full range of emotions, due to feeling sympathy for Gooey. A notably different interpretation of the character, it purposefully removes any sympathy it could have for anything, and thus for itself, so it can carry on killing.

    • Felix manages to be even worse than his canon counterpart. Even before Chorus, he blows off the deaths of innocent people by suggesting that Hargrove should just nuke the people living there. When Hargrove suggests killing the Wu family, he's all too eager since he believes Siris to be a traitor for "abandoning" him and Locus (read: having a conscience and not taking a job that requires him to kill a ton of innocent people). Felix decides to capture the Wu family and have Siris's wife and son killed in front of him just to twist the knife further. He taunts Henry and Megan just before their deaths and does not hesitate to shoot Henry, nor does he feel remorse about this. All the while, he manipulates Locus into being the killer he is today by taking advantage of his PTSD. While Siris is hesitant to kill Megan in front of Siris, Felix pushes him to do so. And when Locus kills Siris quickly as a Mercy Kill, Felix acts like Locus is just ruining his fun. And when he asks Hargrove about the bodies, he just says that Siris got what he deserved for being a "traitor".

Hastur plans on spreading his sign across the world to force this fate onto everyone, and recruits Dr. Moist into his plans, needlessly slaughtering his staff. Hastur arranges to have Lisa Loud kidnapped to have her create a device that would broadcast his sign around the world, and tries to drive her mad by revealing his face.

  • Axis Powers Hetalia/RWBY crossover Weight of the World:
    • Cinder Fall is one of Salem's henchmen. She attacked Amber (Vale) and took part of her Aura, leaving her comatose but aware and unable to interact with the waking world. She successfully causes Grimm to invade Vale during the Vytal Festival by orchestrating the Accidental Murder of Penny Polendina at the hands of Pyrrha Nikos. Possessing part of Vale's Aura gives Cinder an empathic connection with the Kingdom of Vale's people, which means she feels echoes of their emotions. Usually this connection causes the personification distress like a part of themselves are being hurt, but Cinder is the opposite. She relishes in the pain and terror she causes during the fall of Beacon. Upon realizing America has part of Vale's Aura, she hunts him down with the intent of torturing him to death for daring to "steal" part of the power that's "owed to her". She is defeated by Canada but remains unrepentant for everything she's done. Her attempt to stab him in the back fails and he kills her.
    • Atlas (Ciel Soleil) is the personification of the Kingdom of Atlas. After Vale was attacked by Cinder and left comatose, Atlas sought out a personification to put her Aura into in order to prevent the rest from going to Cinder. She kidnapped America and Canada, imprisoning and torturing the twins to test which one was more "worthy" of getting a Remnant personification's Aura. After the fall of Beacon, Atlas opens the Transformation Institute, a facility that brainwashes her people, and throws hundreds of citizens in there. When America confronts Atlas in the Institute and refuses to surrender to her, she threatens to break all of his bones and to have her men rape him. Later, she stabs America repeatedly while he's protecting Ruby and Weiss, pinning his injuries on Ironwood. She later selfishly unlocks the Relic of Creation and teams up with Emerald and Watts in order to kill Canada. Despite claiming that what she does is "for the good of Remnant", Atlas truly only cares about boosting her own ego, and sees everyone—even her own citizens—as being disposable.
    • The ex-soldier is a Torture Technician who was hired by Atlas in case they needed to "encourage" America and Canada to work with them. After Mantle's Aura was forced into Canada in what was essentially "Soul Rape", the ex-soldier was one of the two to drag him back to his cell. He strikes Canada for laughing hysterically from the pain and would have continued to beat him if another guard had not stopped him. The ex-soldier is fired when America and Canada escape, and is hired by Doctor Polendina to be one of America's guards when he is recaptured with the intent of resurrecting Penny. When America does not do what Polendina wants, the soldier tortures him by carving the word "Sacrifice" into his back until it scars and then keeps coming back to do it over and over again for at least a month. He even convinces the other guards to assist with torturing America—something they normally don't do. Even though he has a brief appearance, the ex-soldier is responsible for torturing America for nearly two months and giving America PTSD—all of which he did for his own amusement.


How well does it match the trope?
