* The entire cast of ''{{Film/Chicago}}''. Now, some of them you would expect, like AmoralAttorney Billy Flynn, and [[ItsAllAboutMe self-obsessed]] showbiz wannabe Roxie Hart, but even the characters that would be sympathetic in other productions, like the one A.D.A. who isn't [[CorruptCop on the take]], the straight-shooting and competent detective and the IntrepidReporter are just as awful people. About the only ones who don't fit the mold are The Hungarian Murderess and Amos, though Amos is enough of an ExtremeDoormat it is hard to maintain any sympathy for him either.

* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'': Chi Fu is a chauvinist prick who condemns Mulan with the death penalty once her gender is found out, despite the fact she saved them all from the Hun army in the mountains. He tries this again after she and the others saved the Emperor and ''all of China'' from the Huns. Some gratitude...

** The villains that 007 routinely faces are hard core megalomaniacs and sociopaths to begin with.



*** Though in ''Literature/AFrozenHeart'', it's revealed that [[spoiler:Prince Hans' family]] is abusive towards [[spoiler:him, given how his father and brothers often bully and ridicule him for being too docile and failing to meet their high but extremely cruel expectations. It's implied he's only mirroring his father's abrasiveness (as he's known to be a cruel and violent man who rules his family and kingdom with an iron fist), and [[ThenLetMeBeEvil his decision]] to act tough in Arendelle is [[SourOutsideSadInside only a veneer]] for self-loathing, clinical depression and a massive inferiority complex, making him more of a TragicVillain than a full-blown jerk.]]

** ''Film/X2XMenUnited'':\\\
Ronnie, Bobby's brother, calls the cops on Bobby and his friends under the pretense that they were holding his family hostage.\\\
Likewise Pyro, who, swayed by Magneto's words, starts falling into the dark side. Even escalating the whole situation with the police by openly attacking them when the others were trying to halt the situation peacefully - though to be fair, one of the cops ''had'' just shot Logan in the head.\\\
Mitchell Laurio is an insecure, sadistic slob.

* Film/OnlyTheBrave'': The Hotshot crew lead early in the film is very dismissive of Eric's suggestions to save a community threatened by fire, basically telling them to stay out of the way and let the professionals work. Eric turns out to have been right, and the town goes up in smoke.

* ''WesternAnimation/Cars3'':
** The film's main antagonist, Jackson Storm, is arrogant and disrespectful to the older style racers, considering them to be old and out of date. His first line of dialogue to Lightning in the film is "you have no idea what a pleasure it is for me to finally ''[[StealthInsult beat]]'' you" after coming out of nowhere to win a race with McQueen. He also acts arrogant and conceited to racers his own age,[[spoiler: as shown when he talks down to Cruz before the Florida 500.]]
** Chick Hicks is also back in a cameo; he now has his own sports talk show, and uses it to demean Lightning at every chance. It's obvious he's still learned nothing from his racing days.
** [[spoiler: Sterling's bad side begins to show over the course of the movie, culminating in him actively trying to prevent Cruz from replacing Lightning in the Florida race, not only because of his bet with Lightning, but also because he doesn't consider her anything more than a trainer. Then he acts as though he was on her side all along when she wins the race, but at that point everyone is just done with him.]]
