  • Firefly: Big Damn Hero: Hunter Covington is a Sadist to rival Adali Niska. Working with a remnant faction of Browncoats to trap, try, and hang "traitors" to the Independent cause, Covington has no problem with the fact that these people are to be summarily executed by a Kangaroo Court, and stops by to watch Mal's planned execution because watching a man die by hoist hanging is his idea of a shiny evening's entertainment. He also keeps at least one bondswoman, who he plans to kill slowly by serious knife play for informing on him to the Feds. His neutrality during the war is explicitly because it was more profitable not to choose a side.
  • "Flanaganverse":
    • Ranger's Apprentice:
      • The Icebound Land: Lord Deparnieux, one of many warlords ruling over pockets of terrirtory in the lawless country of Gallica, is a petty thug who doesn't pretend his reign is anything but one of terror. Deparnieux searches for any excuse possible to terrorize innocents, forcing a servant to pick a punishment for a cook who served cold vegetables; when given the option of flogging, Deparnieux opts to flog the servant and have the cook left to die in a cage. Deparnieux adores the cages, having dozens of subjects caged up and left outside to be pecked to death by birds for any reason he can think of, most of which he cheerfully admits can be boiled down to "displeasing him." Deparnieux toys with and murders a young man whose elderly parents Deparnieux randomly murdered, and tries to goad the noble Ranger Halt into a similar duel solely so Deparnieux has an excuse to kill him.

Tennyson assassinates King Ferris after Horace makes a fool out of him, tries everything to dispose of Horace from drugs to rigged duels, and finally murders an innocent family of farmers in his pathetic attempt to escape and abscond with his ill-gotten riches. Despite his appearance as a holy man, Tennyson was nothing more than a greedy crook who thought he deserved everything the world had to offer.

Finding the traders with a cache of emeralds, Zavac heads to the source city, Limmat, razing and massacring his way through the city and enslaving the populace to drain their emerald mine dry. When the city is liberated with him, Zavac abandons his close allies to die.

Vincent devours the spirit of Hector's old mentor, torturing Duchess Freya for weeks on end, and accidentally but remorselessly pushes Hector into murdering the totally innocent Queen Amelie. Finally sick of his brother's hesitance, Vincent overtakes and fully possesses Hector himself, rechristens himself Lord Blackhand, and begins systematically murdering and resurrecting all of his own allies as the undead. Vincent starts resurrecting the dead by the thousands to slaughter all in their wake, decorating Icegarden's walls with the bodies of those he's slaughtered and driving his legions in a crusade to destroy whatever cannot be dominated.

  • The Furious Gods by The Monolith Deathcult: Heinrich Himmler is the Reichsführer-SS of Nazi Germany. His interests are in the occult and in the genocide of all he considers untermenchen, and gleefully combines these two. Aside from his historical role in The Holocaust, he also seeks to use black magic to turn his Waffen-SS into Doom Troops and Super Soldiers, and to combine technology and the dark arts to build a bomb even more devastating than nuclear weapons, and is more than willing to use it to exterminate the untermenchen. Obsessed with purity to a terrifying degree, nothing will stop Himmler from pursuing his genocidal campaigns.
