** Mrs. Prysselius in the Creator/{{Nelvana}} animated movie and series. The original Mrs. Prysselius from the 1969 TV series was not an antagonist; she was extremely silly, extremely annoying and completely incapable of seeing the value of anything non-conventional, but she was always well-meaning and genuinely wanted what was best for Pippi. The animated version, while still not ''much'' of a villain, is a lot more openly antagonistic; her goal seems to be to get Pippi (and, really everyone else) to ''behave'' and ''conform'' and ''do as she's told,'' and is prepared to employ some rather dubious methods in order to reach her goals.

** Mrs. Prysselius at the end of the 1997 film, she is given no comeuppance for the extreme methods, such as threatening to have the police fired to outright kidnapping, that she took just to have Pippi put in the children's home.
*** Although, the film's spin-off made Mrs. Prysselius less antagonistic, it still doesn't hesitate to drop karma on Mrs. Prysselius on the episodes where she is an antagonist.

* ObviouslyEvil: In the animated adpatation, Mrs. Prysselius is pretty much the BigBad who wants to send Pippi Longstocking off to a children's home. The lengths she goes to just to have Pippi put in the children's home are questionable. The only reason she relents at the end is because now that Pippi's father returned, that just took away her only justification for her goal, and had no choice but to fake a HeelFaceTurn.

* TooDumbToLive: Kling and Klang, the two policemen, from the 1997 film, who obliviously oblige to give Bloom and Thunder-Karlsson the tools they need to escape jail. They don't get any better from there... (neglecting their police duties just to go fishing, one has to wonder how they haven't been fired yet)

** PSubverted with for Bengt the bully in the 1997 TV series, Bengt may already be a bully, but in the animated TV series, he might be a bigger bully than his past incarnations.
*** Past incarnations of Bengt were usually just limited to annoying, making fun of, and bothering potential bully victims, but the 1997!Bengt is not above being a sore loser and planning a sabotage against Pippi during a ski race (e.g. giving tips for the already {{Jerkass}}, [[StrawMisogynist misogynistic]] registrar who thinks little girls can't ski and refuses to register Pippi into the race, to delay Pippi, and when that fails, he resorts to attempting to bury Pippi in an avalanche).

*** Past incarnations of Bengt were usually just limited to annoying, making fun of, and bothering potential bully victims, but the 1997!Bengt is not above taking/breaking other kids' stuff (e.g. a kid's basketball in episode 1, Willie's glasses and Anna's backpack in episode 16, and a piece of blubber that Willie brought to show to the class in episode 19), or being a sore loser and planning a sabotage against Pippi during a ski race (e.g. giving tips for the already {{Jerkass}} [[StrawMisogynist misogynistic]] registrar who thinks little girls can't ski and refuses to register Pippi into the race, to delay Pippi, and when that fails, he resorts to attempting to bury Pippi in an avalanche).

** The registrant of the ski race from the eighth episode of the 1997 TV series (see below at StrawMisogynist), gets no comeuppance for attempting to make Pippi lose by purposely stalling, and has the nerve to call her win disgraceful at the end, and is likely free to ruin other women's chances of winning the ski race.

** The fine gentleman from the first chapter of the third book and the third episode of the 1997 TV series, who believes women don't understand business.
** Additionally, the registrant from the eighth episode of the 1997 TV series, as for him, the mere thought of a little girl entering the race is disgraceful, let alone winning a ski race.
*** Unfortunately, unlike the fine gentleman above, the ski registrant [[KarmaHoudini manages to avoid karma's wrath]].
