This creepy politeness is usually just a tactic to throw off the hero and show off how the villain is a looney. TermsOfEndangerment are often involved. Occasionally the villain is [[FoeYay genuinely attracted to the hero]] ([[DatingCatwoman which could especially prevalent if the hero and the villain are of opposite genders]]), or [[SympathyForTheHero has some other reason to relate to them]].

-->'''Luke''': ...Excuse you?
-->'''Alucard''': Oh, I'm sorry, I like the dirty talk when someone's ''sucking my dick.''

-->'''Sisko:''' No it's not. But before you twist that into a compliment, let me be blunt. I don't like the Dominion, I don't like what it stands for, and I don't like you. So let's dispense with the hollow pleasantries and stick to business.\

* Played with by Kilgrave in ''Series/JessicaJones.'' He thinks he's in love with her, and compliments her fairly consistently. . . when he isn't trying (or succeeding) in controlling her mind and making her hurt herself or others, controlling everyone around her just to get under her skin and make her take him back, or just being generally ''horrifically'' creepy.
