---> '''Snidely Whiplash''': This is the part of the job I hate the most, the ending. Up until then, being The Bad Guy is the best job in the world.

* In the live action DudleyDoRight movie in 1999, all of the main characters understand that they live in a corny, formulaic melodrama, and they're perfectly happy about it. Later, the hero and villain begin to deviate from their predetermined roles within the genre, which provokes a severe existential crisis in both men. This is so stressful that Snidely Whiplash returns to his villainous ways, despite knowing in advance that "The Bad Guy" is automatically predestined to failure.

* ''Film/StrokerAce'' features two people expressing this. The first is Clyde Torkle, who knows how race car drivers behave and manages to take advantage of Stroker every step of the way while foiling his attempts to get fired. He is matched by Doc Seegle, Stroker's childhood buddy. [[spoiler: Doc is the one who execute the plan to make Torkle think the Miller Brewing Company wants to buy his franchise, which includes coaching his father into saying only one thing correctly and [[BrokenRecord repeatedly]] to avoid the pratfall of BadBadActing exposing their plan. Doc wins in the end, securing Stroker's triumph over Torkle.]]

* Valentine in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'': He lampshades BondVillainStupidity and forgoes it by [[spoiler:shooting Harry in the head]]. He brings up how stupid it would be for him to [[spoiler:put the ExplosiveLeash implant in his own head or [[TheDragon Gazelle]]'s]], hence why he did not do so. When he realizes that an unknown organization is on to him, he immediately boosts production to accelerate the implementation of his plan. Instead of putting his EvilPlan into an easily hackable system, he connected it directly to his biometrics, meaning the only way to stop it was to go to him personally, and the plan could not be averted through external hacking. Lastly, [[spoiler:rather than rely upon either his own satellite network or Gazelle's presumable murder of Eggsy before bringing his plan into action after losing a satellite, he piggybacked on an associate's nearby one instead to shorten the time span to the completion of the network needed and made sure to never lift his hand from the control providing the power for the EvilPlan until he was killed]].
