* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' has one in none other than [[spoiler: the protagonist, Homura Akemi, after she stabs Madoka in the back, steals her powers and becomes a self-proclaimed demon to counter her godlike status. From there, she [[EvilIsHammy chews the scenery to dust]], [[SlouchOfVillainy slouches in her chair]] as she drinks fruity beverages and freely calls herself a force of chaos and "an existence called 'evil'" when confronted by Sayaka, before engaging in [[BlatantLies some truly gut-churning atrocities]]: she [[PokeThePoodle breaks one of Mami's teacups and makes Kyoko waste an apple,]] [[SarcasmMode the fiend,]] then gives Sayaka and Madoka new chances to live happy lives, brings Nagisa back to be a friend for the lonely Mami, and delivers unto [[BigBad Kyubey]] a long-deserved dose of MindRape for his actions in the movie. To be perfectly honest, her declarations of demonhood and claims of being evil do nothing but underscore how pathetic and self-loathing Homura really is, and even at this point she just doesn't have it in her to be truly wicked.]]

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Discussed in-universe when training Ichigo; he invokes all the Shounen villain stereotypes to make Ichigo feel as though Orihime's life is on the line because he knows Ichigo performs better when there's a genuine threat against someone's life. At the end of the training, he tells Ichigo that he'd make a very clichéd villain.

The example was wrong. He didn't use this trope to make Ichigo feel his own life was on the line, it was Orihime's because Ginjou knew Ichigo functions best when someone's life depends on him.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Ginjou knows what the expected stereotypes are for {{shounen}} villains and therefore deliberately invokes them to make Ichigo feels as though his life is on the line to [[TrainingFromHell obtain the power-up]] he desperately needs. Afterwards, Ginjou jokes that he'd make a very clichéd villain.

Moved from Genre Savvy, because it's really a Discussed Trope for Card-Carrying Villain.

* Dio Brando from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' is an insanely over the top version, with most of volume one devoted to his doing everything he can to crush the hero's soul while pontificating on how he's doing it all purely for evil's sake. Around the time he arranges for [[KickTheDog JoJo's dog to be thrown into a garbage incinerator]], he crosses the line from regular villainy into cartoonish supervillainy.

* Happōsai from ''RanmaOneHalf'' has no motivation for being an asshole and enjoys making peoples' lives miserable, even more so when his students take the fall for him. He, at one point, declares himself "evil 'till the day [he] die[s]". And attempting to ''think'' of being nice gives him seizures.

* ''{{Gundam 00}}'' has the freaking incarnation of the third sphere, Ali Al-Saachez. Gundam series generally (pretend to) have multidimensional villains with some understandable motivations. Or, at least, villains that are good at self-justification and excuses. Ali is probably the only villain in the entire franchise to readily admit that he loves war for war's sake, that he commits his (numerous) crimes ForTheEvulz, and that this makes him the worst sort of person in the world. He has absolutely no problem with it.
