** In ''The Love of the Three Oranges'' Prokofiev averts it with Fata Morgana (soprano), plays it straight with Princess Clarisse (alto), and turns it up to eleven with the cook (a bass in drag). He also scores Hélène as an alto in his operatic adaptation of ''WarAndPeace''.

* Music/{{Mothy}} being [[TrueArtIsAngsty Mothy]], there are a lot of characters who fulfill this role. [[ExtremeOmnivore Banica Conchita/Master of the Graveyard]] [[{{Music/Vocaloid}} (Meiko)]]; [[BigBad Irina]] (Iroha); [[{{Satan}} The Master of the Hellish Yard]], although no one's quite sure if she ''is'' [[SatanIsGood a villain]] (Gumi); and [[{{Yandere}} Kayo]] and [[MagnificentBastard MA]] (Luka) are the most obvious examples, but there are numerous aversions: [[OmnicidalManiac The Master of the Court]], [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Riliane]], [[AxCrazy Arte]], [[BrokenBird Margarita]], and [[LoveMakesYouCrazy Eve]] all have very high voices, being played by Miku and Rin.
