Remember the bad guys on the shows you used to watch on Saturday mornings? Well, these guys are not like those guys. They won't exercise restraint because you are children. They *will* kill you if they get the chance. Do *not* give them that chance.

In other terms, Knight of Cerebus is a rare type of character who appears in media where there is usually have comical and incompetent heroes/villains, they quickly goes against those rules.

For the good guy qualify, the hero should provide intentions that are very straight and stern, the bad guy qualify, the villain should provide situations that are very serious or threatening, appearing in a film, book, TV Show, or a video game, and having everything into a darker and edgier mood.

Good examples for this are Mal from Total DramaMewtwo from Pokemon and Eric Cartman from South Park (more specifically in episodes Scott Tenorman Must Die and the Coon and Friends trilogy) where literally turns the series from a comedy to a serious drama.
