A Knight of Cerebus is a type of character who appears in media where there is usually comical or incompetent antagonists and the antagonist quickly goes against those rules. Other times a Knight of Cerebus is simply an antagonist whose episode or a movie in which antagonizes focuses primarily on the seriousness and drama and less on humor.
For an antagonist qualify in this category, the antagonist should provide situations that are very serious or threatening than any other antagonists that has appeared in a film, book, TV Show, or a video game, and having the presence to do evil that's usually not meant to be funny.
Good examples for this are the Joker from Batman, the Indominus Rex from Jurassic World, Sir Miles Axlerod from Cars 2, Madame Gasket from Robots,, Cell from Dragon Ball Z, and Lord Buisness from The LEGO Movie.
- IMPORTANT: This type of antagonist is not always necessary to be a one-shot antagonist, as it can also be applied in recurring antagonists in special episodes noticed in a much more serious way than how you're used to (It often occurs when a character undergoes a personality change that is called "flanderization".) A Knight of Cerebus is a dark character in a setting where it normally doesn't make sense (for example, a crazy killer in MLP) - not simply a "dark antagonist".
- NOTE: Just because they're a Knight of Cerebus doesn't mean they can't be comedic. As long as they are serious and threatening enough to set a sinister tone, they can also have humorous moments.
