Antagonists Wiki

Every day, I wake up with a shotgun in hand, but eventually I realize that I'm not in the hellhole of Chicago anymore and I just suddenly try to shoot out an imaginary man who appears to be Jonah Kronbach. But before you know it, I shot our poor dog, having to die for my health. It's scary and heartbreaking. I want him out of my f**king mind. He still haunts me to this day. Witnessing my brother die, it. Like.. just scares me. Either way, Charlotte. Jonah might be dead, but he still makes an impact on me to this very day. Hell, he even drove me to the brink of insanity many years later. His ways still impact the environment to this very day, sucks how Earth had to be abandoned due to his own egotistical and reckless ways. It will never be inhabitable, ever. Again.
~ Chuck describing how Jonah still affects his own life even after Jonah's execution.

“Hello, brother. Didn't think you could get rid of me so easily, did you? See, my days were numbered, but you oh, you can continue on for me, be my ultimate revenge! So, calm yourself. Don't fight it. Breathe it in. This gas was a special mixture I had made, just for you. Something to finally set you free. It's time to have some fun. Burn it down, brother. Burn it all down!„~ Jerome Valeska announcing his legacy in a recording for Jeremiah

Villains who died and have remained dead, yet continue to have a lasting impact and presence from beyond the grave in an earthly and terrestrial way.

They can even be dead from the very beginning of their stories and appear primarily in flashbacks (like Bertrand Zobrist). Their actions in life (including their involvement in villainous events), their legacy, and the harm they caused may continue to have a lasting impact after their deaths. This may include villains from a debut film of a franchise as if they are dead, in the sequels, they may be a reference wich suffers the protagonist.

Editing note: characters who came back as ghosts, zombies, vampires, and so on, cannot be posthumous as well (as their actions are still being carried out by their undead forms) UNLESS:

their undead form is also killed off (this time permanently), and they have a posthumous effect after that (i.e. Shane Walsh);their undead form disappears or removes itself from the action and no longer connects with the plot, essentially being permanently removed (i.e. Darth Vader);their undead form is defeated and sent to (or back to) an afterlife or Hell dimension where they can never return;the conflict takes place in an afterlife and they do not reconnect with the world of the living (i.e. Ernesto de la Cruz).
