Some of my favorites.

Gul Dukat (Star Trek DS9)
Weyounn (DS9)
Kai Winn (DS9)
Brunt (DS9)
Female Shapeshifter (DS9)
The Intendent (DS9)
Lore (Star Trek TNG)
Ben Linus (Lost)
Gaius Baltar (Battlestar Galactica)
Caprica Six (BSG)
Scorpius (Farscape)
Nina Myers (24)
Sherry Palmer (24)
Charles Logan (24)
Tywin Lannister (Game of Thrones)
Joffrey Baratheon (Game of Thrones)
Melisandre (Game of Thrones)
Gus Fring (Breaking Bad)
Walter White (Breaking Bad)
Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal...I loved Mads approach)
Boyd Crowder (Justified)
Mags Bennett (Justified)
Stringer Bell (The Wire)
Al Swearengen (Deadwood)
Gillian Darmody (Boardwalk Empire)
Arnold Rothstein (Boardwalk Empire) (well he was a bad guy but in context of the show he wasn't that bad compared to everyone else)
Valentine Narcisse (Boardwalk Empire)
Dennis Reynolds (It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia...surely he counts)
Roger Furlong (Veep...everyone on that show is a horrible person...but he rises to the top)

That's a good list. Of those you mentioned, Gus Fring is my favorite by a long shot. I actually started rooting more for Gus than for Walt during that season. When he eliminated the entire freaking cartel, I was in absolute awe. It made Walter look like a lucky amateur (which is how Mike always perceived him, relative to Gus).

Mads' Hannibal Lecter was also a tour de force. What an amazing show that was. I really hope we can see another season of that, someday. The intriguing cliff hanger is just too delicious to leave dangling forever.

One more, missing from your list - Freddie Highmore's Norman Bates. A very humanizing performance, and Highmore's acting has been Emmy-worthy for the last three seasons. It's also a surprisingly sympathetic portrayal of mental illness.

And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!
