Examples of Anti-Villains
In both of his appearances in Devil May Cry 3 and DmC Devil May Cry, Vergil is an antagonist to Dante. In DMC3 Vergil is trying to acquire as much power as possible (as well as Dante's locket), but it's for the sake of beating Mundus, the evil demon lord that killed Vergil & Dante's parents.
In DmC, however, Vergil is portrayed much more altruistically for most of the game, as he operates an underground resistance against Mundus and his demons that rule the world. Though while he wishes to save humanity from the demons, it is only so he and Dante can then take their place to rule over the human race. He feels that they require supervision due to their numerous weaknesses, both physically and mentally, and that he & Dante as Angel & Demon hybrids are the only ones fit for such a position. What sort of methods Vergil would use to rule over humanity is unknown, as Dante immediately opposes the idea and fights back once Vergil reveals his true intentions. However his treatment of Kat, often openly referring to her as expendable, hints that Vergil's rule may not be entirely unlike that of Mundus.
The Last of Us - David
During the Winter portion of the game, Ellie is scrounging for food and inadvertently comes into contact with a man named David. While initially mistrustful of him, David goes to great lengths to assist Ellie by working alongside her to defend an onslaught of infected, to also providing medicine so she can help look after Joel. However, it is eventually revealed that David is in fact trying to court Ellie into his group for sexual purposes; when she refuses he then instead opts to kill her and use her as food.
