* Princess Azula from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. She's a sociopathic firebending prodigy, but she does it with such ''style'' and [[TheChessmaster planning]] that you can't help but admire her (but hopefully not [[DracoInLeatherPants too much]]). She manipulates everyone around her, including her own brother, and her plans in the second season require her to out-maneuver another [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]], Long Feng, which she does, effortlessly. Her CrowningMomentOfAwesome was [[spoiler: nearly killing Aang with a lightning blast ''in the middle of his TransformationSequence'' in a DangerouslyGenreSavvy moment in the second season finale.]] She's only ''14''.

** As of Book 4 we can now add its BigBad Kuvira to the list. Like Amon, Kuvira is a DangerouslyGenreSavvy VillainWithGoodPublicity who has so far managed to outmaneuver anyone who's challenged her. She even breaks Amon's record and earns her status in '''one episode!''' In "The Battle of Zaofu" [[spoiler:she anticipated that Suyin would try to attack her and set up a clever BatmanGambit to capture them making it look like they were the aggressors while maintaining her VillainWithGoodPublicity status. That forced Korra to challenge her to a one-on-one duel for Zaofu, which Kuvira wins (though granted, the fight was full of IdiotBall moments on Kuvira's part and she only won due to something she couldn't have planned on). She then attempts to kill Korra, which works out either way because it would either eliminate the Avatar or force Jinora and Opal to violate the duel. The latter gives her just the excuse she needs to invade Zaofu. And though Bolin and Varrick managed to escape, Bataar Jr. has seen enough of the spirit vine experiment to restart the project with Zhu Li's help. In other words, [[TheBadGuyWins she won decisively]].]] And then there's "Kuvira's Gambit" [[spoiler: Kuvira knows that Republic City has been warned of her coming attack, so she moves up the schedule to one week instead of two. In addition, they believe that she is transporting the cannon by rail, so they attempt to disable rail transport; anticipating this, she deploys the cannon on a Colossus instead. And when presented with a SadisticChoice of leaving Republic City or never seeing Bataar Jr again, her response is to (Though not without a great deal of regret) ShootTheHostage.]]

* [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerPuffGirls Mojo Jojo]] can be this at times. While his plans tend to be hair-brained, sometimes he's shown enough [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy savvy]] and [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]] to casually perform things that people rarely notice until they happen (the "Powerpuff Girls Rule!" special is a fine example.) The movie played this straight.

** King Sombra in his two-part episode was certainly one in the past, at least, due to his CrazyPrepared, DangerouslyGenreSavvy measures when hiding the Crystal Heart during his rule over the Crystal Empire. His returns cost him some of his splendor, but he's still a terrifying NoNonsenseNemesis.

** Probably the biggest example though is [[TheCorrupter Adagio]] [[CreepyAwesome Dazzle]] from the spin-off movie ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]''. She proves herself with a simple plan and manages to [[XanatosSpeedChess adapt quickly to manipulate everyone else to leave the Dazzlings on top.]] Adagio plays the "[[TheChessmaster Master]] [[ManipulativeBitch manipulator]]" to perfection - she never reveals her full hand but plays every card right away. She has that deadly combination of being both [[XanatosSpeedChess dangerously]] [[OpportunisticBastard cunning]] and [[LongGame incredibly patient]], like a spider weaving her web while lying in wait for [[BatmanGambit her prey to come to her]]. In the final battle, she even [[NoSell No Sells]] what might have been a OneHitKill (Having [[BatmanGambit ALREADY manipulated the Humane Six into letting her drain most of its energy for her OWN use]].) and it's only by bolstering up for a second shot that the Humane Six don't lose outright. Her plan is to TakeOverTheWorld using the power of ''AwesomeMusic''. That ''alone'' is [[EvilIsStylish Magnificent]].

* Belphegor, the main antagonist of the ''"Belphegor"'' French animated series could qualify as one. He's a DiabolicalMastermind, good at manipulating people and [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy anticipating everything that's thrown at him]], so he's never ''once'' caught or his identity revealed. You have a trap door in your house that he's conveniently standing over? Well too bad, he knew and had already made it unresponsive to your device! It helps that he [[SinisterSurveillance has cameras installed almost everywhere in Paris]], uses his mooks to spy, steal and kidnap for him (in the few cases he doesn't just do it himself), and apparently has enough money and access to high-tech gadgets and top secret, untested military technology, that can make a mad scientist drool at the thought. To actually make him lose his cool, you have to do something pretty terrible or disruptive to his plans, that could cause a really angry response. Otherwise, everything you do is met either with boredom, slight amusement or mild annoyance on his part.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' we have the evil, slick, cool-headed [[AmericanPsycho Patrick Bateman]]-esque monster known only as "Toffee". First he gets [[BigBadWannabe Ludo]] to hire him simply by making him believe that he did hire him, and proceeds to advise a fairly competent Evil Plan that's clearly truly intended to test the capabilities of both Star and her wand. He then [[TheChessmaster skillfully manipulates the events]] of "Mewnipendance Day" resulting in Ludo firing Buff Frog. Furthermore, [[ManipulativeBastard he manipulated Ludo's army into throwing Ludo out after a situation arranged as to make Ludo look especially bad]], and becomes their leader instead. And it's implied that he'd been waiting a while for Ludo to put on the display of weakness he needed to convince the monsters to rebel. During all this time he also made sure to stay out of Star's way so that she wouldn't notice him, and the fact that Marco and Star aren't even aware of his existence until the season 1 finale [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy proves he's savvy enough to keep himself a secret.]] At the end of Season 1, [[spoiler: Toffee gets what he wants: the wand is destroyed, and is only partially reformed thanks to a heroic unicorn, but with one broken shard still missing. We're not even sure he's truly dead - he likely survived the wand's explosion and will come back to start phase two!]]

** The only other ScoobyDoo villain who qualifies is Ben Ravencroft, the charismatic book author descended from a witch from "The Witch's Ghost" movie. He has two things in common with Pericles: his status as this trope, and [[spoiler: the fact that his downfall comes from his success in his ultimate goal.]] Oddly enough, he bears a striking resemblance to David Xanatos. Also, he's voiced by TimCurry.

* Megabyte from ''ReBoot''. The [[EvilSoundsDeep low]], [[EvilBrit British]] baritone voice of Creator/TonyJay certainly helps, but this is one of the few cartoon villains that has never suffered from any sort of VillainDecay, and is actually considered more dangerous as the series progresses. His most magnificent moment (besides the guitar duel) is when he took advantage of the web invasion and subsequent EnemyMine situation to strand Bob, Mainframe's champion, in the web. While Daemon is more powerful and dangerous, Megabyte's return in season 4 evoked much more fear from the main cast. What makes this so Magnificent is how his dispatching of Bob is so ''un''-magnificent. He shoves him and presses a button. Dead easy. It also helps that [[spoiler:judging by the season four cliffhanger, ''[[TheBadGuyWins he wins]]'']].

* ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Pirate leader Hondo Ohnaka seems like a drunken, idiotic pirate at first. However, so far he's managed to capture the very powerful trio of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Count Dooku in an attempt to ransom them to the Republic. Dooku never truly explains how he was captured (only warning the Jedi that Hondo's more clever than he looks), and Hondo manages to drug Anakin and Obi-Wan even after they are aware he's trying to do so and take measures to avoid it. During their attempts to escape, [[AffablyEvil Hondo keeps his jovial personality and insists that it's nothing personal, and that once he has his money they can all go back to being friends]].

* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' gives us Black Knight. From posing as a Reasonable Authority Figure, keeps her own true power hidden to use at later date when necessary, plays politics with the [[BiggerBad Consortium]], and pulling off a success starscream to gain [[AGodIAm supreme power.]] She even admits that she wants power, believing that you have to admit it to yourself to get it. Throughout it all, she shows absolute NervesOfSteel, is soft-spoken, polite, acts as a FriendlyEnemy despite being a ruthless foe, and so forth. Even when defeated, she ultimately escapes and becomes a KarmaHoudini.

* Surprisingly enough, The Riddler of the ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' universe tiptoes around this trope. Especially in his StartOfDarkness episode, he shows several traits of magnificent bastardry: he [[BatmanGambit delivers an ominous riddle to his former boss knowing he'll come after him, and forcing Batman to choose between Robin's life and said boss', knows the hero will choose the former]]; he [[GenreSavvy has the dynamic duo leave their utility belts behind]]; and finally, even though his plan is thwarted, manages to [[TheBadGuyWins avoid capture and emotionally scar his target forever.]] And in his third and last episode, he almost kills Batman! Two times out of three, the Caped Crusader is able to overcome his adversary thanks to some convenient object at his disposal (namely a micro-computer and an explosion-resistant safe). And to top it all off, he's voiced by Lionel Luthor himself, John Glover!

* Dolf from ''WesternAnimation/AlfredJKwak''. While he may start off as a mere naughty kid and a bit of a bully, as the series progresses Dolf becomes more and more [[CleverCrows devious]] and [[CreepyCrows evil]], to the point where he becomes an [[Expy ''Adolf Hitler Expy'']]. After years of being abroad, Dolf returns to Great Waterland and manages to stage [[TheCoup a coup d'etat]], removing the King from his palace and even amassing an army. After falling from power, he returns again after the King has abdicated and now partakes in the first democratic election. In order to get ahead of the other candidates, he hires foreigners to [[BigDamPlot damage the dam that keeps the land from being flooded]]. He then ''drops out'' of the race, saying he has to help the people and can't waste time on elections. He then publicly funds repairs of the dam, making him immensely popular and boosting his chances at the election once he reenters. The only witness, a jellyfish spy called Lispel, attempts to blackmail him, which promptly [[BlackmailBackfire backfires]] when Dolf attempts to ''shoot him to death'' in order to eliminate any chance of his plans being foiled. Had Lispel not survived the shooting and informed Alfred, Dolf's plan would have succeeded.
