  • This nobleman assisted in a rebellion to depose the true king of the realm in favour of his best friend, a hedonistic thug who delights in "smashing skulls and fucking girls". He returned to his desolate northern stronghold, where he spent seventeen years chopping people's heads off (with the feeble excuse that he does his dirty work himself). When he is later recalled to serve the new king in the capital, he spends the time ruthlessly victimising a benevolent family of golden-haired philanthropists, and blackmailing the queen. When his king and best friend died, he set about taking the throne for himself. Oh, and did I mention that this ne'er-do-well fathered an illegitimate child in mysterious circumstances? Luckily, justice is done and this miscreant had his head cut off with his own sword. Ned Stark, A Song of Ice and Fire

He then committed identity fraud and used the proceeds of his vile thefts to set up an exploitative sweatshop staffed by desperate women, one of whom was forced into prostitution and eventual death by the poor wages and injustice in his workhouse. To add insult to injury, he kidnapped this poor woman's daughter to raise as his own, escaping from justice once again to emerge years later in Paris, where he aided and abetted a dangerous left-wing radical in an attempted coup, to whom he gave away his so-called daughter!

  • The "heroes" follow the example of a charismatic troublemaker who belittles his superiors' plans for the good of their community and abandons it without looking back. In so doing he starts a chain of events leading to the deaths of thousands, the destruction of cities, and the endangerment of all humanity. So far from expressing the slightest remorse, he and his followers deliberately exacerbate the situation at every turn, using a power whose cosmically disruptive effects are well known and which eventually makes them a threat to the entire world in their own right. And when one level of government after another tries to curtail or at least restrain their use of this power, the "heroes'" ultimate reply is an arrogant assertion of their own individualities.

One such undertaking was to overthrow the established government. He hoards a massive amount of dangerous technology and allows a small set of inexperienced civilians to handle it on a regular basis. He regularly fraternizes with members of a highly dangerous and threatening group, and provides living space to a number of them. When disputing with any number of the clients he deals with on a regular basis, he is as likely to kill them without a second thought if things come to a disagreement.

He once nearly wiped out the entire population of the Earth, and is responsible for the death of thousands, if not millions, over the course of his lifetime — including several of his closest friends, his lover, and members of his own family, in addition to the last creature of an endangered species.

He manages to make a comeback, but for some reason never arranges for an independent audit of his own finances (despite having a wife and a brother-in-law with far more business skill than he's ever had a chance to gain) and loses everything. In an attempt to stage a second comeback, he alienates his son and puts his own health at risk. Rocky

  • This "superhero" once protected the city and kept the peace, but he mainly enjoyed basking in the glory and felt superior due to his Super Strength. When an intelligent young boy offered to be his sidekick, the hero threw him aside because didn't have powers and told him he works alone. He also injured several people he was trying to save, like one man whose neck he broke catching him in a suicide attempt. When he was forced to retire and raise a family, the hero was nonetheless unsatisfied with a normal life and spent most days pining over the golden years, even sneaking out looking for disasters just so he could play hero again. He also encouraged his children to think of their powers as what makes them special and superior to normal folk. He proved so unstable at work that he assaulted his boss for annoying him. After being justifiably fired, he was called to stop a rampaging robot on a remote island. He did all this behind his wife's back, a fellow superhero herself, because he saw family life as a prison. It eventually turned out that the man behind the robot was the same boy he rejected years ago, and that he wanted to prove to all the others how you could be a hero without powers. The hero barely apologized and nearly flattened the latter with a log. Later, when his family arrived on the island looking for him, nearly getting killed in the process, the inventor told them all he would sell his inventions to the public and become the hero he had always wanted to be. The so-called hero then shattered his dreams and exposed him as a pretender. When the inventor desperately tried to befriend the hero's youngest son to make up for the years he had lost as a sidekick, our "hero" brutally murdered him in cold blood. Even after all that, he learned nothing, still encouraging his son to use his powers to get ahead, and expressing barely hidden disappointment when his wife later got to be a hero instead of him. Mr. Incredible, The Incredibles

After his poor management got his beautiful racer wife killed, the man abandoned his only daughter to a miserable life in boarding school while he put his past behind him managing a new racing team.

His attempts at "heroics" generally leave thousands of dollars in property damage, and his misuse of the device once nearly destroyed the universe.

  • Emotionally unstable, hotheaded teen who made a wish for selfish reasons, trapping herself in a deal she knew was unfair. Once granted magical powers, she made rash decisions, constantly angsted over living up to her dead mentor, and fought dangerous overwordly creatures with a foolish view of the world - even though her best friend was always present. She thought she was entitled to a boy's love due to her selfish wish, and when he chose to date her friend instead, she lost her mind, despite the fact that said friend warned her beforehand and gave her time to confess. She began to spiral down into self-destructive madness, and lost her humanity after making several mistakes: ignoring help, refusing to change her mind about the world, lashing out at her traumatised childhood friend, and not replenishing her magic. Sayaka Miki from Madoka Magica.

     Steel Edge 
  • This white haired young man is the reincarnation of Dracula. He steals the souls of anyone who opposes him, and uses them as weapons in combat. He killed a missionary who had claimed Sacred Hospitality in his home, beat an old man half to death, and destroyed a religion dedicated to the balance of the universe just because he didn't agree with their leader. Soma Cruz, Castlevania: Chronicles of Sorrow
  • This young man first discovered his fire powers at the age of eight, when he brutally burned a nervous young man alive. He spent the next years of his life spurning his loving older brother.

    St Fan 
  • A cold-blooded killer, this man has pursued numerous missions of infiltration, spying, kidnapping, sabotage and assassination. He's known to use aggressive psychic powers to inflict pain on his victims. His gross negligence led to the death of many a trusting companion — including soldiers under his command — and repeated shipwrecks. This reject student of a once-noble organization suspiciously survived the massacre of his peers. Since then, he granted himself undeserved ranks in his now-extinct order, none of his superiors having survived to rein him in. Guilty of many cases of murder, looting, mount thief, resistance to law enforcement and prison escape. Salvaged for his own usage a few precious artifacts, including one that is the rightful legacy of his birth country. Directly responsible for the death of several heads of states. His most heinous crime is certainly the terrorist annihilation of a whole capital city with a weapon of mass destruction. He brought the bomb there under a traitorous disguise, which also permitted him just before this the cowardly killing of the city's rightful ruler — inducing the genocide of said ruler's entire race. He hadn't stopped at this, and is since pursuing the persecution of at least two religious cults, one of nature-loving druids and another waiting for the return of their messiah, out of bigotry. Lone Wolf

  • This young woman deserts her family to join a glorified street gang. She treats everyone badly, acting like a Jerkass to everyone except for her boyfriend. Every third sentence that comes out of her mouth is Wangst. She is Too Dumb to Live, and would be dead if not the "hero." She is stupid and proud of her ignorance, considering all who value intelligence and wisdom as evil. As part of the hazing for this band of thugs, she jumps off a train- a ritual highly disrespectful to those who end their lives by jumping- earning the title of "First Jumper" and forgets all about the other girl who fell right near her and died. She, along with her boyfriend who is almost as big of a jerk as she is, leads a string of riots in a barely-justified revolt. This action launches her country into anarchy, which she fully endorses. She dies a foolhardy death that is calculatingly disguised as a Heroic Sacrifice so that she will be remembered fondly. The triumph of anarchy and chaos in her home city after her death is treated as good. Tris Prior, Divergent trilogy.
  • A strutting so-called archeologist, he is an obnoxious American who looks down on anyone not from his home country. His greed leads him to risk his life so he can steal historical objects that should be left in peace. And he never plans ahead. Indiana Jones of... Indiana Jones, of all things.

  • A man who uses his Southern Gentleman charm to defend criminals in court, he oozes Condescending Compassion in a White Man's Burden sort of way. Atticus Finch, To Kill A Mockingbird
  • This woman left a convent because it did not tolerate her hedonistic lifestyle. She then slyly seduces a nobleman, positioning herself as a governess to his children and charming them first, knowing that the key to his heart- and his estate- is his large family. She not only passive-aggressives the children to learn music regardless of if they want to, she takes them to preform at a Nazi-sponsored event! Maria, The Sound Of Music
  • A deranged, Axe-Crazy reality-TV star, (the show that she becomes a celebrity on is a fight to the death), who started a revolution in order to get attention, later assassinating the leader of the revolution she helped to start. Traitor! Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games.
  • A snotty, clingy, little Attention Whore whose parents are complacency evil Jerkass criminals and who drags the young man she had a crush on into a doomed revolution because she would rather him be killed than have him love another girl. Epponine, Les Miserables
    • He acts like he's pure, but don't you believe it! It's just a way to make everyone love him, instead of them seeing him for the terrible person he really is. He tried to escape from prison not once, not twice, but five times. He then takes advantage of a bishop's kindness, and absconds with the bishop's priceless silver. His nemesis is the incorruptible police inspector who is assigned to return him to prison. He becomes the mayor of a town by committing identity fraud, and opens an exploitive factory. One of the women who works at this factory is fired for arbitrary reasons and is forced into prostitution. After her death, he buys her daughter from the little girl's greedy foster parents. Shortly afterwards, he knocks his aforemented nemesis- remember him, the justice-loving police officer?- unconscious by hitting him on the head with a chair. He then raises his so-called daughter in such a way that she will be completely cut off from the world. After some time, this so-called hero supports a treasonous far-left rebellion, even going so far as to join them on the barricades. When the revolting revolters then capture his worst enemy, who as already stated, lives to uphold justice and the law, does he allow his enemy the peaceful, serene death he desires? Nooooo. He spares his life which sends this enemy into a downward spiral, ending in this noble inspector throwing himself into the Seine. This is clearly our hero-in-name-only's cold-blooded plot to get rid of his enemy in such a way that he can't blamed, and so that his nemesis will have to bear the psychic pain of an existential crisis. After the treacherous rebellion is finally defeated, he serves up his "daughter" -that's right, the one he bought from the scum of the earth who abused her horribly- to one of the members of the radical student organization who led the failed rebellion! When he dies, this dispicable fugitive ascends to heaven. Is there no justice? Jean Valjean, Les Miserables

    Storygirl 000 
  • An indie rock duo consisting of a female and a male decide to cause anarchy and chaos in their city by opposing the corporation that gives the city its power over being dissed at a talent competition.

They're also getting help from a man who plots to drop a satellite onto the city, possibly killing thousands. Mayday and Zuke, No Straight Roads

    Subby P 
  • A heavily scarred former preteen rebel who indoctrinates children into a cultish form of patriotism and child soldierhood. He has a fearsome reputation despite being rarely seen. Some of his outstanding personality traits render him unsuitable for life as a soldier, but his skills themselves are great—he can see without sight and hide the truth in convincing illusions. Regularly rubs shoulders with wanted killers. Commonly thought to be in a homosexual relationship with one of the world's most feared assassins. The protector and surrogate father figure of a savage Eldritch Abomination in human form. Umino Iruka, Naruto
  • This obsessive young woman spends most of her time around corpses, dated a deranged serial-killing master criminal, and helped fake the death of a self-proclaimed fraud and sociopath. Molly Hooper, Sherlock
  • This Eldritch Abomination possesses an innocent, God-fearing husband and father, rebels against the ultimate Good, commits nearly unprecedented amounts of fratricide, consorts with demons, twists a friend into a soulless monster, absorbs primeval Evil, and blasphemously claims the position of God, all out of a bizarre and contrary-to-his-culture rebellious streak and an obsessive love for a mass murdering member of an inferior species. Castiel, Supernatural
  • This propaganda-spewing media mouthpiece for a dictatorship worships the Old Ones, lecherously stalks an innocent scientist, and may or may not be an Eldritch Abomination. Cecil Palmer, Welcome to Night Vale
  • This addle-headed probably-homosexual idiot lies to his friends, breaks the hearts of innocent women, commits numerous acts of petty theft and fraud, consorts with known hate-group leaders, and generally contributes nothing of any worth to society. Plays a mean piano, though. Bertie Wooster, Jeeves and Wooster

    Super Toad 67 
  • A snarky jerk whose job consists of kidnapping and imprisoning for profit a group of sentient beings who are at worst harmless pranksters, risking the destruction of the universe each and every time, and uses illegal technology in order to keep said prison up and running. On a personal level, in his efforts to woo a client of his he comes off as a borderline sex offender. Dare to call him on any of this, and rather than offer any sort of real rebuttal, he'll just insult your masculinity. Peter Venkman of the Ghostbusters
  • An defense attorney who regularly steals from people as "evidence" and violates the right to privacy of everyone he meets, occasionally using supernatural means to pry into peoples' very hearts to do so. He regularly enlists the aid of preteen girls, including involving an 8-year-old child in grisly murder investigations. Whenever he's in a jam, which is far too often, he is willing to indulge in necromancy, allowing said preteens to lose their free will and become the puppet of his mentor with similarly unscrupulous habits. In his efforts to defend his clients by any means necessary, he nearly got an innocent woman sentenced to death and a thief completely off the hook thanks to a legal loophole. Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney

    TARI Nunit 9 
  • A totalitarian ruler feared by all her subjects, even her closest associate. As if that weren't enough, she enjoys playing upon the anxieties of her subjects for her own amusement. Twice she has foreseen the coming of great nationwide disasters, yet rather than use her position and incredible magical power to warn and protect her subjects, she forces a group of young, neurotic students to solve it themselves. Later, when she witnessed a young lady and three unconscious stunt fliers falling to their death, she didn't lift a finger to save them. She banished her younger sister, who was incredibly lonely and simply yearning for some friends, to an offworld exile worthy of an entry on And I Must Scream. Princess Celestia, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

    T Beholder 
  • When he's not too busy with slaughter, in which he shows no mercy, his main pastime is Wangst. His father once was given a quest to retrieve a sacred relic, and he gave it to the first complete stranger who asked. His family was punished because he helped an enemy... who was "happy" about it enough to start a no-holds-barred vendetta. He hunts down a helpless slave and returns him to the owner who killed said slave after a little while, no questions asked. His religious life is even more interesting: he says a childish blasphemous boast, but when meeting an avatar (who treated him better than his own family did) of the deity in whose face he promised to repeat it, admires and obeys instead... Granted, he knew not whom he met, but not due to deception, only his ignorance: the clergy hearing his report of this over-the-top omen has no doubts. It's not clear whether he understood this later or not, but he didn't took his words back, even became hostile to anyone associated with this faith. Still, when he joins an army of yet another enemy of his homeland, a deity's personal servant asked by a very favored Reasonable Authority Figure to kill him didn't even bother to try, instead going after another foe. His little personal war with the deity smiling upon him before and still sparing his life continued, even though his own city's history proves it's the only thing standing between most of his kind and a civil war ending in or followed by genocide. This guy really dislikes his own kin — while routinely exploiting advantages his blood gives him for all their worth — so much that he never associates even with those of creed similar to his own, of whom many are proud of their ancestry and one got an epic-scale quest just to keep it with her. He frequently pushes himself in murderous rage on purpose, which in his case looks like a worse idea than usually, what with having enough of demon blood to react differently on not demon-specific magic . Also, inspired more than one annoying tendency in fandom, but at least this isn't his fault. I didn't even bother to stretch facts using Weasel Words. There's no need to paint black this Big Damn Hero Drizzt Daermon N'a'shezbaernon, just getting him in [im]proper light works fine.

  • A young girl completely disrespects people's cultures, becomes an eco-terrorist, and berates her own brother for siding with the reasonable pacifist of the band because she wants to avenge her mother.

After that he consorts with a questionable ruler who won't even reveal herself truly, oh and he endangers an adolesecent and by dying puts said adolesecent up against an elite fighter who is clearly to dangerous. Oh and he ensures said child has the opportunity to become too powerful. Qui-Gonn Jinn The Phantom Menace and yes I know Obi-Wan isn't actually a teenager but he sure does look so
  • This guy has a very well paying job and a lot of great assets, but instead he uses them to help a convicted car thief who defrauds the police for a living and he insists on half the money.

  • This athlete was known for wearing his clothes in a reformed manner. He gave his signature maneuvers explicit names. He humiliated a businessman and eventually stole his most prized possession. He completely vandalized his property, and nobody ever changed it back. He became a proud athlete always showing off and his win-loss record made him predictable and boring in the eyes of his fans. He had also sent people flying through tables, off cars and into platforms, and once even threw a barrage of chairs on an innocent young man. He even beat up a man famous only because of his ex-wife, and an athlete in his field that later became a top Hollywood star. John Cena

  • A team of elite mercenaries, two of whom are well-known criminals, one is a warrior who killed numerous people across two continents and the rest have made deals with deities that all yearn for the slaughter of a specific race or the world domination. Their leader is a fearsomely strong, but cunning man, able to play entire goverments to further his goals and is not afraid to attack a member his teammates if they step out of line, or abandon them to an unknown fate once he deems them useless.

  • An quick-tempered, fist-happy Blood Knight that beats up and threatens workers for the thrill of the fight. Matter of fact, that's the only thing that inspired her to train to be a professional soldier; not a desire to seek justice or help people. She has a reputation for being such a hothead, the villains can easily convince spectators of the Vytal Festival tournament that she is a violent bully.

    The Enmity Of Ages 1994 
  • This enigmatic immortal claims to be a healer, yet he regularly commits genocide against innocent peoples who only want a little law and order. He routinely charms innocent, beautiful young women away from their families with promises of seeing things they had never dreamed of. If seeing mass murder on a regular basis was something they never dreamed of, this would be correct. He manipulates his 'friends' and turns them into weapons as cruel and vicious as he. Bathed in the blood of a million galaxies, every race in the Universe lives in fear of him dropping out of the sky and ending their world. Believes himself to have the right to say Screw the Rules, I Make Them! and destroy all who disagree with him. The greatest empire the Universe has ever seen formed to stop him. It wasn't enough.

    The Hero Hartmut 
  • An invader from another planet who enslaved an entire species, and used them to rob this planet of its resources in order to help repay his company's debt (not even stopping once it's been repaid). Sits back on the sidelines while his "army" is forced to attack the planet's indigenous wildlife, devoid of the basic compassion to so much as commemorate any who may have died in the resulting battles. Once their purpose has been served, he callously discards his slaves and leaves them to fend for themselves against their enemies. Frequently employs cowardly tactics such as attacking creatures in their sleep, assaulting from behind, or even cutting down those that pose no threat to him. Has no qualms about interfering with the local ecosystem, so long as it means furthering his own selfish needs. Captain Olimar, particularly in Pikmin 2
  • A clone of a super soldier who relies on cowardly sneaking tactics to subdue his enemies. Often issued a tranquiliser gun by his superiors in a bid to help resolve matters in a relatively peaceful manner, but this does nothing to dissuade him from killing in cold blood, whether through the use of firearms, explosives or his bare hands. Fought his twin brother to the death and killed his best friend's love interest. Proven to be highly dangerous; had to be discretely injected with a virus that will ultimately end his life. Solid Snake, as at the end of Metal Gear Solid

    The Myotis 
  • A stripperifically dressed dark sorceress with a carrion-bird motif whose incredible powers are fueled by negative emotions, she is the spawn of a demon lord and a virtual antichrist destined to bring about the rise of said demon lord and subsequent apocalypse. When not honing her foul magics (which allow her a Green Lantern Ring worth of abilities, including intangibility, inter-dimensional travel, levitation, and even Mind Rape) she hangs around a extremely destructive gang of minors, who live alone on a small rocky island, and enact their own brand of vigilante justice upon various businessmen and scientists in a nearby city, without the approval or supervision of any adults or authority figures. When she does bring about said apocalypse (in which she is partly compliant) and it is reversed, she is quickly forgiven by her allies. Yet even amongst her compatriots, she is often antisocial and excessively cynical, to the point of physically abusing the small boy who is the closest thing she has to a love interest. Raven, Teen Titans
  • A spoiled, manipulative and extremely arrogant Royal Brat with serious daddy issues, this boy decides to try and destroy his birth nation for the sake of a personal vendetta. This he does by first gaining a powerful form of occult mind-control from a immortal witch-like creature, and then taking over several murderous terrorist organizations from his birthnation's former enemy, one noted for its nationalists and psychopaths, by hiding his identity and claiming to be their liberator. He ends up murdering his brother and almost killing his former best friend on several occasions, and when his destructive revolution is almost successful, he abandons his loyal soldiers for selfish personal reasons and allows them to be defeated and captured, and for his birthnation to enact terrible retributions against them. He then repeats the process, this time overthrowing a peaceful neighboring nation and then forcibly taking control of a plethora of smaller countries to form his own personal empire, ordering a entire city of mostly young children massacred in the process. He eventually ends up murdering both his parents, despite their truthful assurances that they do love for him, and becomes the leader of the nation he sought to destroy all along, slaughtering its noble class, and averting what could have been a utopia. Despite these crimes, he is treated as not just a hero of the series but as a virtual antiheroic messiah. Lelouch vi Britannia, Code Geass

    The Poppy Bros Sr 
  • Heir to a lush island, this greedy aristocrat immediately gathered a vigilante group when a passing space sorcerer had expressed interest in the island's favorite sport, to forcefully claim the island as his now that his parents were incapacitated. He shamelessly befouled and looted the island's diverse locations and beat the island's guardians senseless, stealing their pieces of a sacred relic. He deluded his friends into thinking that their destructive habits are for the island's well being. In their first encounter, he terrorized and pounded the hapless sorcerer into the dust, forcing him to flee the island. After nearly murdering his own friends for posession of another sacred relic, he relentlessly pursued the sorcerer to his home planet. There, he ruined the planet like he had his home, and pummeled the sorcerer again, trapping him on the planet's moon. Timber the Tiger, Diddy Kong Racing

    The Tail Kinker 
  • He started his career by abandoning his responsibilities and hijacking transport with the express intent of violating his homeland's greatest laws. The least reprehensible of this monster's negative traits is his tendency to attract young women - sometimes kidnapping them - and then abandoning them when he gets tired of them, usually dumping them a long way from home. He even treats members of his own family in this manner. He is known to gloat over his intellect, his viciousness, his lack of mercy. He states that he is against genocide, but has himself been responsible for the extinction of over twenty intelligent species, including his own. He kills not for survival, but to fit a twisted sense of morals that even his closest friends frequently find repugnant. Armies have been raised against him, and even creatures who acknowledge that they are monsters view him as something worse than themselves. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Doctor, of Doctor Who.

     The Tea Must Flow 
  • When sent as an ambassador to defuse a highly dangerous situation, this man forgot his duty entirely, instead choosing to chase a woman already engaged to a local authority. His negligence caused a needless battle and the destruction of a city. Out of misguided guilt and misplaced loyalty, he betrayed his comrades-in-arms (who had justly imprisoned him for his dereliction of duty) and persuaded a horde of tribals to fight a needless and costly war against his former employers (by manipulating their local legends, destroying all they had worked hard to build and killing most of his former allies, denying the tribes who now hailed this Manipulative Bastard as their `saviour` the benefits of technology.

  • A convicted criminal, this individual stood by and watched the rightful Emperor die to an assassin's blade. This person then went on to:
    • Become the leader of a mercenary company, an arrogant and intolerant group of mages, a cabal of assassins who worship `the Void`, and a shadowy criminal organisation,
    • Take part in brutal gladiatorial combats for gold and their own amusement,
    • Viciously hunt down and wipe out a religious organisation for it's radical views,
    • By a series of atrocities, become, quite appropriately, a literal God of Madness

    The Toon Geekette 
  • An aging laborer routinely steals body parts from the remains of others of his kind and has arguably bad taste in movies. He stalks the object of his obsession and becomes involved in a scheme to prevent an authority figure from trying to do his job. WALL-E
    • The above-mentioned object of obsession: an initially emotionless being who will shoot anyone or anything that gets in her way. EVE
  • A group of people mostly fixated on tearing apart the work of others, sometimes literally. They tend to celebrate special occasions by either beating the crap out of each other, conquering entire nations, or trying to obtain powerful artifacts for the sake of profit.The contributors of Channel Awesome

      • A temperamental, constantly-swearing man who takes delight in making fun of children's media icons, and fires his gun with reckless abandon. Has been responsible for numerous deaths, and even a few nuclear explosions. The Nostalgia Critic
      • The above's female counterpart who, in addition to also making fun of people's childhood hero(ines), has made jokes about sensitive material such as rape, and also constantly invades her best friend's personal space and privacy. The Nostalgia Chick
      • A man who may or may not be a megalomaniacal Mad Scientist. He has earned the ire of many for making fun of a series of beloved video games, has occasionally been a part of an evil group of undead, zombie-like beings, and, on top of it all, is a serial date-rapist. The Spoony One
      • He constantly tries to prove his gender by punching people in the stomach, owns a variety of deadly weapons, and has been responsible for at least one book burning.

  • A huge, ferocious monster who tends to be a bit of a selfish, stubborn brat. He throws an old man into his dungeon simply for seeking shelter from a storm, and only lets him out on the condition that the man's only daughter has to take his place.

  • The heir to a kingdom, he starts out cocky, reckless, and a bit egotistical. Later, he proves to be a coward in the face of danger, and runs away from his problems, choosing instead to live a live of hedonism with a couple of slobs.

  • A former nobleman who, upon arriving on an island, enslaves its two inhabitants - one who constantly asks for his freedom, and the other who points out that the island should technically be his. Years later, upon finding out his brother is sailing nearby, the man orders one of his slaves to create a vicious storm in order crash the ship onto the island, so that he may murder the brother in question. He also acts like a complete prick to his daughter's boyfriend, despite him being a genuinely nice guy. Prospero, Shakespeare's The Tempest
  • A group of hired killers willing to slaughter their own clones/twins/doppelgangers/whatever. They consist of an annoying youth who clubs people to death with a baseball bat, a man who faked his military status and slaughtered many supposed enemies years after the war, a pyromaniac who constantly hides his/her identity, a Soviet glutton who gleefully mows down his enemies with a BFG, a drunk Scotsman responsible for the death of his adoptive parents, a possible Mad Scientist who cut off one of his own limbs and replaced it with a powerful weapon (disregarding his employer's orders to build said weapon), a sadistic Nazi-esque Mad Doctor who seems to disregard the Hippocratic oath, an assassin who claims not to have feelings and uses his own bodily fluids in battle, and a chain-smoking, backstabbing Magnificent Bastard. The classes of Team Fortress 2...wait, that was way too easy.
  • A stubborn loner who kills or otherwise incapacitates everyone that helps or tries to help her, including her only friend. Also responsible for the deaths of many adorable, childlike creatures. Chell, Portal
  • These characters once fought a princess who was merely feeling unappreciated by her subjects. Also, each one of them has been the cause, or at least connected to, some kind of crisis in their hometown The cast of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
    • The leader of the group: she spent the majority of her life shunning social interaction, and once tried to defy a royal order simply because she didn't want to make time for it. Her magical abilities have proven to be incredibly dangerous to those around her (even her own parents!) should she ever lose control. Twilight Sparkle
    • A stubborn hick who potentially injured her friend, poisoned dozens of unsuspecting townsfolk, and caused a major stampede all within the span of a few days. Applejack
    • An arrogant, yet very lazy jock who was the cause of two major explosions, the first of which had long-lasting effects on several bystanders. Rainbow Dash

    • A possible reality-warper who once caused a battle between two parties who probably would have been willing to talk out their differences if it had not been for her interference. Has also shown hints of a darker, more psychotic personality lying dormant inside her, waiting for the right trigger to bring it out. Pinkie Pie
      • Their allies are no less innocent; one of them is a fire-breathing monster who once tried to frame someone for murder. Spike
      • Another is a supreme ruler who once imprisoned a family member over her inferiority complex, and has been known to essentially troll her subjects. Princess Celestia
      • Labelled by some as an "evil enchantress", she dwells in a forest known for its variety of vicious, terrifying creatures, and spends her days brewing mysterious potions. She once refused to help a town being devastated by a swarm of omnivorous creatures, and has long inspired much fear into the hearts of innocents. Zecora
      • An omnipresent force in the land where all these characters dwell. She has proven to be a hazard to those around her, once crushing an innocent bystander multiple times. She is seen everywhere, sometimes in multiple places at once, and it is entirely possible she can see multiple places at once, so good luck sneaking up on her. You cannot escape her - she will appear when you least expect it, where no one would think to look for anyone or anything notable. Even outside the confines of this fictional land she resides in, her influence is widespread, particularly among those from one of the most infamous wretched hives of scum and villainy on the Internet. Her motives, thoughts, and, indeed, entire background are a mystery - no one knows who she really is, or what she wants. Truly, she is a force to be reckoned with. Derpy Hooves

    The Violent Tomboy 
  • A boy who has an Oedipus Complex pretty much screws over all existance (not to mention his own parents), as we know it for the sake of a girl who he's barely met. the original Syaoran from Tsubasa

Note: I only list characters I really do dislike for their actions and I don't consider heroes even though the narrative treats them as such and this site won't allow them to be listed as a Designated Hero.
  • This person forcibly broke two people out of prison (one of which should not have even been there anyway) and railroaded them along with a third criminal into getting in even more trouble than they already were, all while he used physical force against them. He did this to orchestrate an attack on the country and endanger everyone to provide a final test to the protagonists to make them realize they could overcome anything. In the end, he convinced the rulers of the land to turn all three of them to stone (possibly for eternity) despite none of their new crimes being any worse than their previous ones and the fact that two of them were already serving their sentences and would still have been doing so if not for him, while he got off Scott free. Discord from My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic
  • These rulers shamefully sentenced a mentally unstable child to spend eternity in a maximum security prison with no possibility of parole or any visitors instead of sending her to a normal prison/mental facility where she could have served her time and gotten the help she needed. They later had her turned to stone after she was forcibly broken out and subject to entrapment, despite her new crimes not being any worse than her previous ones. Oh and they also inflicted this on her cellmate despite him also being a victim of entrapment and his crimes also not being any worse than before. They do however pardon the one who orchestrated everythings and give him no more punishment than a scolding (not even community service) simply because he had "good intentions" and apologized. Celestia and Luna from the same series
  • These people not only had no objections to a child being sent to an adult prison for life with no possibility of parole or any visitations or later being turned to stone, but in the latter case, actually cheered about it. the entire fucking main cast of the season 8 and 9 finales of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic

  • She thought that her workplace’s practices weren’t efficient enough – so she staged a violent coup, murdered one of her colleagues and was indirectly responsible for the death of another, lobotomized her commanding officer and forced him to become her slave, and brainwashed her remaining coworkers into forgetting the existence of her and their entire career (and, in some cases, their childhoods and family members). She soon realized that she wouldn’t be able to accomplish her goals alone, so she hired three of her old coworkers to act as her personal bodyguards/errand boys, routinely putting them in dangerous situations and sending them at least once to (what she thought was) certain death. Also, her track record involves kidnapping adorable baby animals. Lucretia, The Adventure Zone

  • A high-ranking military intelligence officer breaks into a foreign embassy, physically assaults the ambassador, takes a hostage, fires on both civilians and military personnel, fakes his surrender only to murder his hostage in cold blood, steal the man's property, and blow up the embassy. All of this took place after a dangerous Le Parkour chase through a construction site, causing millions in damage and endangering several innocent lives in the process. James Bond, Casino Royale
  • This reclusive group of monks kidnap children to indoctrinate them into their religious belief - they themselves admit that anyone older than a toddler wouldn't accept their teachings. The majority of them aren't accepted into the order anyway, instead becoming cheap laborers in the most ass-backwards places imaginable. The lucky few who do get accepted are trained to use supernatural powers to manipulate others and influence galactic history to the order's own ends. No person in the order is allowed any sort of personal possession or family outside the Order itself. The Jedi, Star Wars
  • He steals trucks (and their loot) to fund his dangerous and illegal habit of street racing. Apparently, he's forced to street race because, despite being a hardcore car enthusiast, he managed to get himself banned from every race track for life. While on the lam, he interferes with an active police investigation and nearly sparks an international incident on his quest for revenge. He's caught at the end of this, only to get broken out of prison - he uses this time to start yet another international incident, wantonly murdering and destroying property for the sake of $100 million. To top this all off, not only does he get pardoned, the US Government hires his services as a Badass Driver and thief extraordinaire to fight even worse bad guys. Dominic Toretto, The Fast and the Furious
  • This woman clad in metal uses her ancient, unmatched suit of Powered Armor to commit acts of genocide against a race that not only is technologically inferior, but is only tangentially related to the dragon-thing she's really after. She's known to blow up important military installations and raid priceless archaeological sites for precious artifacts to use for her own ends. The straw that broke the camel's back? She hunted to extinction the only animal that could keep a Zombie Apocalypse in check, then destroyed billions of dollars in research and equipment to stop the apocalypse she herself unleashed! Samus Aran, Metroid series
  • He's directly responsible for killing many people that had nothing to do with his actual Roaring Rampage of Revenge, including members of the clergy. He flagrantly breaks laws and intimidates police into not arresting or charging him. All of this was done for a car and a dog of all things! John Wick
  • Holy shit, where to start with this lady? She willingly signed up for a contest involving killing peers she never even got the chance to meet, and coldly manipulated a man interested in her in order to win. Nothing is beneath her - drop a hive of killer bees on someone? Check. Feed someone to zombie dog-men and watch as he gets devoured for hours on end? Check. Physically attack her evaluators in order to get their attention? Check. Apparently this earned her a spot as a figurehead for a rebellion backed by a totalitarian dictatorship no better than the one they're rebelling against, where she gets to participate in multiple assaults on innocent civilians and ultimately assassinate her own superior officer in cold blood. Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games.
  • Get a load of the deranged psychopath who performs open-heart surgery on his best friend without anasthesia or a properly prepared clean room, and with his goddamn bare hands which turns into an impromptu heart transplant thanks to his aforementioned improper medical practices. During this absolute travesty of a surgical operation, he tells the anecdote involving how a previous patient lost his skeleton thanks to him and he lost his medical license for it. He keeps zombie heads in his fridge, ignoring their pleas to be put to rest, while showing nothing but the worst bedside manner of any medical professional this troper has ever seen. All of this is for the benefit of testing a medical implant that barely functions! When he's not performing Frankensteinian deeds on his teammates, he's pumping them full of chemicals while they're fighting, that only heal their injuries as a side effect of their intended purpose - whatever the hell that is. Ladies and gentlemen, meet The Medic, from Team Fortress 2.
  • There once was a Texan, whom you could always tell, but you couldn't tell him very much. His response to seeing a cybernetic arm advertised as the ultimate weapon? He sawed off his own arm just to use the weapon. Not only does he show glee at his Sentry Guns obliterating everyone they see, but he displays nothing but contempt for the Frenchman assigned to stop his murderous killing spree. His outward display of a smooth Southern-Fried Genius might be genuine, but it hides an inner contempt for his fellow man. Oh, and he stole a song called "Someone Else's Song". Dell "The Engineer" Conagher, Team Fortress 2.
  • He eats all the lasagna and sleeps all day like the useless overweight (or, shall he say, "undertall") that he is, all the while constantly driving his owner closer and closer to insanity with his boisterous, argumentative attitude. Some say he might not even exist at all... the eponymous Garfield.
  • He broke out of prison to murder a bunch of people, just because his imaginary Russian friend told him to. Alex Mason, Call of Duty: Black Ops
  • Supposedly an ally of the United States, this person instead chose to murder one of its highest ranking generals after launching a nuclear warhead at Washington, D.C.. Later leads a terrorist attack against an Arabian hotel, murders its owner/operator. Captain John Price, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

  • A deranged mechanoid who ignores the desperate pleas of a slave race rebelling against its evil overlord, instead choosing to eradicate countless alien species in pursuit of its own selfish desires. Its actions lead directly to the death of two of the only three "friendly" lifeforms in the entire galaxy. The robot from the Robot Wants Series

    T Lhikan 
  • This person spends inordinate amounts of time on the internet, endlessing picking apart and misrepresenting works of fiction and culture. This person rabidly attacks some works, then claims scorn for those who take disliking a work to seriously. They will hold up any slightly impressive achievement as if it should be considered amoung the most titanic moments in history or a work of fiction. They openly acknowledge that their pastime ruins lives. You.

    Tomo Alien 
  • A cute little creature that corrupts the fabric of time and space in order to save the princess. Main protagonist from Eversion
  • A surgeon who operates his patients with unusual and unsterilized tools, like pizza cutters and lighters. Alan Probe from Amateur Surgeon

    Tony Branston 
  • This prick of unknown origins is known to have introduced many people to a variety of drugs reserved for medical use and is suspected of stealing clothes, despite already having an elaborate, expensive wardrobe. His only contacts we've seen are a hooker and some idiot who says he's an American tourist. Agent 47. I'm assuming antiheroes count if my reasons are petty enough.

  • This man spends his time researching new ways to kill people. Wherever he goes, people die. Stoppard Sterling, the Finnegan Zwake series
  • His single-minded focus on achieving his childhood dream caused him to break all the rules of his society and at least a few laws, abandon his girlfriend, endanger his coworkers, humiliate his younger brother, and possibly contribute to his roommate's suicide. He considers all of this a good thing. Vincent Freeman, Gattaca
  • Motivated by their desire to humiliate their old boss, these vigilantes cause massive collateral damage every time they meddle in police business. The Swat Kats
  • She ignores, and even outright defies, the orders of commanding officer to risk her life assisting her uncle's rivals, a pair of dangerous criminals. Felina Feral; Swat Kats
  • Most people would call this man extremely inhuman. He was a talented pickpocket as a child and joined the army for the pillaging. Nobby Nobbs, Discworld

  • A sarcastic, borderline psychopath who has a crush on her "best friend", and she shows it by constantly teasing and having him injured. And when he almost choked to death, she stood by and did nothing but smile. And when he was attacked by a Giant Spider, she did nothing to help him. Oh, and she decapitated him on one occasion, leaving him to flail around without a head. All this, coming from a ten-year-old girl. June, KaBlam!

    Train Dodger 
  • A precocious youth who bullies her peers into becoming her friends. She skips school and lies to her parents about her actions and her whereabouts in order to learn how to practice destructive witchcraft at the behest of a talking, psychic ferret. She wields an intelligent wand that also talks, concealing itself as a harmless necklace when not in use. With her newfound powers, she assists a totalitarian government from another dimension in assaulting a woman's home and kidnapping her daughter so that one of their officers may take custody of said daughter; as though they were her legal guardian all along. Next, she viciously attacks a group of Good Samaritans who were doing a donation drive for a wheelchair-bound little girl with paralysis in her legs. Her sinister deeds even prompted one of the volunteer workers to refer to her as a literal devil. Years later, she joins the armed forces of the aforementioned trans-dimensional totalitarian government and becomes an expert at brainwashing teens, turning them into living weapons with her hellish training techniques. During one exercise, she nearly put one of her students into a coma with a blast of eldritch energy from the tip of her finger. Clearly, this form of abuse was fully endorsed by her superiors, as she was never reprimanded for it. Once their training is complete, she assists in leading these children against a brilliant researcher whose work could save countless lives. Despite being arguably mentally-unfit to be a parent, she adopts a child who later turns to mimicking her adoptive mother's reckless, mean-spirited behavior. Years afterward, she hunts down a very unfortunate group of people infected with a magical curse that turns its victims into blobs of meat, obviously intent on capturing them alive so that they may be dissected for further study. Takamachi Nanoha, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
  • A dangerous terrorist endowed with supernatural powers, who makes a hobby out of demolishing state-of-the-art medical research facilities. Her masterful control over electricity and electromagnetism allows her to spoof CCTV cameras and other electronics, giving her the ability to move through areas with heavy surveillance and ruthlessly vandalize the private property contained therein whilst remaining completely undetected. By using her ability to accelerate ferrous objects well beyond the speed of sound, she could potentially kill someone with something as innocuous as a coin or game token, and keeps many of these on her person to use as ammunition. She takes great pleasure in torturing her friends with electric shocks. Misaka Mikoto, To Aru Kagaku No Railgun

  • A man wakes up in the middle of nowhere, with no memory of who he is, but his first instinct is to destroy. He begins cutting down trees to make the tools for more destruction, building a mine to create a house which is several times larger than it needs to be because the man is greedy. The natives of this land try to stop him, some even sacrificing themselves to kill him, but no matter how many times he 'dies', he keeps reappearing. He considers all inhabitants of the land - those who fight him, those who trade with him, and even animals - to be nothing more than a means of getting resources. He eventually builds a portal to the depths of hell, which, once again, is for the soul purpose of getting resources. If he stays down there long enough, he may find enough resources to summon a god-like, undead being. He summons it purely for the sake of killing it, endangering every living being in the land. One of his cruelest deeds is slaughtering dozens of tall, innocent creatures who can't even swim, just for the sake of stealing their treasure and using it to build a new portal, one that leads to their home dimension, again, just for the sake of killing their leader. When their leader is dead, he goes home and does more building. Steve?, Minecraft
  • A criminal's surrogate daughter is returned to her biological mother. In his quest to get her back he kills hundreds of her allies who want nothing more than to see their home restored to its full glory, and he murders innocent men who were doing nothing more than protecting their children. He then proceeds to endanger the lives of those children for his own gain, before either murdering them or abandoning them. He films many of his murders because he believes he can learn more by recording them dying in various ways (electrocution, combustion, bullets, explosions) and he vandalizes nearly every mechanical object he comes across. His closest friend is a con-man, who takes advantage of the poor to make himself richer, openly considers morality to be a liability, and finds amusement in other people's misfortune. Subject Delta, BioShock 2
  • When this man was 16 he burned innocent people to death because someone pointed out that not everyone in his family was white. A few years later, he got a job that involved intimidating and hurting people. He got fired because he caused too many deaths. His wife/girlfriend died giving birth, and he sold the kid to pay off gambling debts. Years later, after living a life full of more gambling and alcohol, he tried to pay off his debt by kidnapping the daughter of the leader of a former US city. He destroys the entire city. Booker DeWitt, BioShock Infinite
  • This young man is unemployed, a kleptomaniac, and a murderer. He spent up to 8 years murdering people - It's unknown how long. The only person he encountered who didn't die minutes later was a young woman who he kidnapped rather than killing. He forced her to stay with him in his "house" (which is technically a vehicle) for days, leading her to believe it was unsafe to return home. Eventually, she caught on to this and tried to leave without his assistance. She was quickly almost killed by several of this man's friends. R, Warm Bodies
  • Works in a building filled with haunted machines that constantly try to kill people - and yet he makes no attempt whatsoever to warn anyone about this until they're already there and unable to leave. Openly states that he loves those machines. Phone Guy, Five Nights At Freddy's
  • A man who electrocutes a woman in order to make her stop caring about her 18-year old son who literally cannot exist without her. Dr. Madden, Next To Normal

    Trombone Child 
  • Abandoned his two sons at random points in their childhoods for days on end to fight evil. When the boys got older, he trained them like soldiers. Then he disappeared for nearly a year when they were grown and deliberately chose not to contact them. John Winchester, Supernatural
  • She deliberately stabbed and killed her boyfriend after he came back from The Dark Side. She ignored her second boyfriend after awhile, and then emotionally abused her third boyfriend until she nearly drove him to rape. He tried to become a better man for her, but she shunned him anyway. Then she finally confessed her love for him as he was saving the world. She also kills non-human beings indiscriminately. Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  • A rare type of half breed, who abuses those she claims to be her friends and constantly destroys breakthroughs or discoveries in technology and magic. She later teams up with a known felon just so she can get her powers back and destroys a memory just trying to stay alive and a group of creatures sealed under an island. Shantae
  • Where to begin with this kid? When gifted with magical creatures that can grant him anything he wants, he doesn't use it to solve world hunger or create world peace. Instead, he uses to cause mass damage and destruction in any goal he has. He also proves selfish enough to refuse to let the world age just so he can keep his magical creatures, not caring about anyone else. Timmy Turner The Fairly Odd Parents
  • This leader forces her soldiers into constant dangerous missions while rarely going on any herself. When she gets sick of the job, she gets sympathy from one of her best, only to later threaten to force feed poison to the person who claimed her job, just so she could take it back. Following this event, she develops feeling for the solider that comforted her and asked him out right after he was dumped by his former girlfriend. Numbuh 362 Codename Kids Next Door

    Twenty Two Sevenths 
  • A crazed man, to start. He is completely responsible for the death of his entire race, and almost wiped out several dozen more. The most notable of these almost-genocides is one particular race where he wiped out all but four or so. However, it does get slightly better: the race still exists, but only due to excessive time travel and cloning. He constantly abducts women, forcing them to come along with him. Most of these people end up dying, but usually and thankfully come back. When he gets tired of these unfortunate women, he just dumps them off, abandoning them. Occasionally, he wipes their memory, but that can either be counted as a blessing or a curse. His means of transportation is a literally one of a kind vehicle, seeing as how the rest of them were either decommissioned or destroyed by him. That doesn't sound too bad, right? Well, he stole it. So who is this twisted man, you ask? Why, none other then our own Doctor, of Doctor Who fame.
  • This man is a convicted criminal. He is a thief, he disregards many laws, and he impersonates authority figures. He uses many aliases, though to his credit, many of them are epic. Despite all this, he works for the police. How is this possible, though? I'll tell you in just one word: lies. Lies and deceit. He lies to all around him, girlfriend, boss, and mother included. The only ones who know the truth are his father and his best friend, but they keep their mouths shut, mainly because their afraid to come clean. If that isn't bad enough, his lies are spiritual in nature, claiming to have access to the afterlife and the spirit world. A certifiable Jerkass, this man deserves to have his badge taken away and brutally destroyed. This man is Shawn Spencer, from Psych.
  • To start things off, he is insane. No, really, he has a certifiable mental disorder. His entire career is based around him wanting to kill and/or brutally murder one man. He brings the ones he loves into constant danger. And, even though I admit this is bit of a stretch, it has been discussed that he is the reason everyone in his town gets murdered. With that being said, his name is Monk, from the eponymous show.

    Twin Bird 
  • An obsessive body builder who frequently endangers his adopted children and uses physical force against his illicit female lover, spending considerable amounts of his corporate-earned money to more effectively brutalize mental patients. Batman...again.
  • A convicted car thief who willfully misrepresents himself to the the police department to escape further criminal charges while making his living by defrauding them. Shawn Spencer.

  • A young child who runs away from home and orders their companions to beat up wildlife, often capturing wounded specimens to aid an old man in his "research". Forces many of these creatures to undergo mutations in order to increase their power and make them better at beating up stronger wildlife. the protagonist of just about every main series Pokémon game
  • Traveled back in time to collect five artifacts that freeze time when removed from the places they were hidden in. Is known as a dangerous criminal in the time period they were originally from, and eventually convince an entire town to help them prevent the future from happening. Pissed off two of the universe's major deities, and their very presence creates a rift in the space-time continuum. the player character from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky, though some of these things could also apply to Grovyle.

    Underlord Z 
  • Scores of young people, often not even out of their 20s, responsible for the downfall of over a dozen rulers and legitimate empires over the last 20 years. Utilizing countless Humongous Mecha, they tear down their opponents with little to no remorse. They will survive and continue their reign of terror for the next 990 years, still having at least one active team in the 31st century. The Power Rangers

     U No Who 
  • This notorious group is wanted all across the galaxy for crimes against humanity including brainwashing and terrorism. They also routinely attack law enforcement and have helped an entire prison's inmates escape. AKB0048

  • An egomaniacal bully who tormented a loner Nerd and countless other students with his friends For the Evulz. Fully believed in screwing the rules because of money and connections. Almost got someone killed until he got cold feet at the last second, then had the gall to claim the victim owed him their life. Lusting after a certain girl, he repeatedly tormented her close childhood friend until she agreed to go out with him, then secretly went back on his word for years. Got himself killed when he recklessly charged into battle, leaving his wife a widow and his son without a father. James Potter, Harry Potter
  • Real Life example: He took power in a disputed election which led to half the country seceding in protest. A dedicated racist, he quickly exploited the crisis to acquire more and more power for himself, infamously abolishing the right of habeas corpus. His troops committed numerous atrocities; in particular, one general slaughtered thousands of civilians and destroyed countless cities and towns solely to Make an Example of Them. He was killed at the end of the war, but the rebellion was crushed anyway. Efforts on the behalf of sympathetic government officials to show leniency toward the former rebellious areas were swept aside, and he was succeeded by a notorious drunk General Ripper who ran one of the most corrupt governments in history. Abraham Lincoln


How well does it match the trope?
