"You see, in this world, there's people like me and there's people like you. And people like me eat people like you for breakfast and shit them out. You're nothing but foreign vermin, a stinking introduced species. And it's up to my kind to wipe your kind out. And that makes me the winner, which makes you..."

    Examples 
  • Cubix: Robots for Everyone: Kilobot, Arch-Enemy of Cubix, is the most vicious character in the series. Kilobot regularly drains innocent robots' life-energy throughout the series, wounding and plunging some of them into comas in the process. Though often acting on orders from Dr. K, Kilobot's lethal competency compared to his master results in him nearly successfully murdering the Botties many times over, as well as endangering an entire city with destruction to secure his goal. Unempathetic to his accidental murder of Dr. K's best friend, Kilobot's greatest showing of independence under Dr. K is to invade RobixCorp and threaten to bomb the entire building and its staff while forcing Maximix to fight his own friends as a brainwashed puppet. Eventually betraying Dr. K, Kilobot temporarily murders Maximix, takes control of an army of Zombots, then plans to use them to turn every robot into his slave and conquer the world. When his plans are thwarted, Kilobot makes one last attempt on Cubix's life by crushing Cubix's EPU with his bare hands.
  • Eon Kid:
    • The General is the sociopathic cyborg who is responsible for the post-apocalyptic state of the Earth throughout the series. Developed a century ago to fight against an army of beings called the Gigantors, the General quickly developed a god complex and obsession with destiny, and led an uprising against humanity to conquer the world, leading to mass destruction and chaos. Though seemingly defeated by the great hero Eon, the General was rebuilt 100 years later by his servants, and immediately restarts his campaign for conquest by dispatching dozens of CDF soldiers before reactivating one of the Gigantors. Using the Gigantor, the General crushes all in his path, planning to annihilate all those who stand against him, and coldly executes the loyal Khan for expressing disgust at the General's disregard for the mass casualties he plans to cause. When Marty, the last descendant of Eon, confronts him, the General attempts to painfully kill the boy while forcing his friends to watch, even mind-controlling one of them into attacking Marty for him, before finally losing all his previously smug composure to rant about his plans to plunge the world into darkness to fulfill his destiny. Vicious and cruel beyond compare, the General was feared across the world for good reason, and stamps himself in Earth's history as the greatest threat it ever faced.
    • Dr. Chen, one of the General's two Co-Dragons alongside Khan, is a diabolical genius bent on reviving the General and taking over the planet alongside him. Originally a high-ranking CDF scientist who was demoted for his unethical experiments, Chen betrayed humankind to rebuild the General and began collecting his scattered parts through any means necessary. To ensure the General would go unopposed when revived, Chen and Khan order the entire Eon family bloodline exterminated, leading to the deaths of numerous innocents, and Chen regularly orders the deaths of innocents throughout the series. After manipulating the arrogant Von Rhyner into reconstructing a Gigantor for him, Chen orders the man and his entire staff to be disposed of, and, once the General is revived, Chen gleefully pilots the Gigantor to destroy any opposition to the General, and tries to murder the young girl Ally when she attempts to shut down the mechanical monstrosity. Dr. Chen was a slimy scumbag who was willing to doom countless innocents out of nothing but ego and scientific curiosity, and is responsible for most of the evil in the series.
    • Scar, a twisted madman who serves the General simply to get to hurt people, was the one commissioned to wipe out the Eon bloodline, and he gleefully hunted down each and every member of the family and slaughtered them, nearly claiming the life of a then-infant Marty as well. In the present, Scar attempts to torture a captured prisoner for information, and later tracks down a now preteen Marty, at which point he confronts Gaff, the Eon family guardian, whom Scar viciously mocks regarding his massacre of the Eon bloodline, even fondly recalling their screams as he cut them down. When he eventually confronts Marty by slaughtering his way into a hospital, Scar continues his boasts of glee at killing the boy's family, and implores the boy to stay conscious as he assaults him, noting it won't be as fun to kill him if he's not awake. Though a minor villain in the grand scheme of things, Scar stood out among his fellow villains as the only purely sadistic individual who regarded killing and hurting others as rewards in themselves.

    • Kilvish was once a disciple of the Yogic Gurus, who he trained under alongside Shaktimaan. A bully obsessed with acquiring power through any means, Kilvish secretly began studying the dark arts, which he used to steal the souls of all of his and Shaktimaan's fellow students after Shaktimaan was chosen over him be the new Yogic Master. After setting up a lair in Indus City, Kilvish acquired a pair of henchmen named Tick and Tock, who he abuses and tortures whenever they annoy him or botch one of his plans to Take Over the World. Not caring what state the world is in so long as he controls it, Kilvish has sent various monstrosities on destructive rampages, bombed the ocean floor to cause earthquakes and tsunamis, and tried to melt the North Pole. Wanting to psychologically torment and demoralize Shaktimaan as well as destroy him, Kilvish has trapped Shaktimaan's loved ones in never-ending nightmares, tried to cause multiple subway crashes just to kill a few children who had formed a Shaktimaan Friends Club, and summoned a dragon to try and murder every child in Indus City. In the finale, Kilvish resorts to poisoning Shaktimaan's mind with illusions of his worst fears, all in an attempt to blind Shaktimaan with so much homicidal fury that he will become sloppy and leave himself open to being slain by Kilvish.
    • Doctor Jackol was a colleague of Professor Gyani, who turned him in to General D'Goze after he discovered that Jackol was selling weapons to terrorists on the Black Market. After escaping from prison, Jackol allies with Kilvish to get revenge on Gyani and D'Goze, being perfectly content to also help Kilvish spread his "darkness" all across the Earth. Jackol purposely tries to kill as many people as possible in his attempts on Gyani and D'Goze's lives, which have involved trying to crash a crowded airplane that Gyani happened to be aboard, and making Mt. Indus erupt, not caring that the eruption would also wipe out all of Indus City. Jackol has also tried to nuke all of Indus City just to kill Shaktimaan; ordered that Human Shields be shot once he no longer had any use for them; lobotomized a man in order to turn him into a mindlessly destructive cyborg Super Soldier; and threatened to release every "crazy killer" in a prison in order to draw out Gyani and D'Goze. Jackol treats Tick and Tock little better than Kilvish, frequently using them as unwilling test subjects for his experiments, and at one point going as far as to abandon them to die in the erupting Mt. Indus.
