* [[BigBad Jail Scaglietti]] during the last episodes of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', who, when faced with defeat at the hands of a very angry Fate on SuperMode, breathlessly called Fate and her powers as magnificent. Fate responded by smacking him into the wall hard using the side of her {{BFS}}.

* Played with in the climax of ''Literature/TheNameOfTheRose'': [[spoiler: Jorge]] praises William of Baskerville for uncovering the secret book he'd worked so hard to conceal, remarking "what a magnificent librarian you would have been." However, Adso notes that his tone sounds at once admiring and regretful, and it soon becomes clear why: [[spoiler: Jorge has [[FingerLickingPoison poisoned the book]] so as to prevent its secrets from being revealed to the public, and he's playing GracefulLoser in an attempt to get William to drop his guard and start reading. Fortunately, William is wearing gloves.]]

-->'''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.

Contrast to AffablyEvil, wheree the villain is not necessarily trying to annoy or flatter the hero, but rather that's genuinely what they're like to most people. See also YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame.

YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame. It may be used in a ArsonMurderAndAdmiration kind of way, though true examples of that are between villains.

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 be especially prevalent if the hero and the villain are of opposite genders]]), or [[SympathyForTheHero has some other reason to relate to them]].

* From ''Disney/RobinHood'' there's a bit of this in the style of ArsonMurderAndAdmiration, after Prince John learns of the latest hit that his subjects have come up with against him and that both the Sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Hiss have somehow managed to learn the lyrics (and that the former had been singing it on his tax collecting sprees as of late): "They'll be singing a different tune! Double the taxes! ''Triple'' the taxes! ''SQUEEZE EVERY LAST DROP'' out of those insolent... ''musical'' peasants." Note that he sounded slightly amused when he got to the word "musical".

* Gin Ichimaru from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' and his treatment of "Hinamori-chan", whom he taunts gently yet sarcastically to make her (and others) believe he's a criminal and a traitor. [[spoiler:Turns out he * was* a betrayer, but not quite as the others imagined]]. He even takes time to talk to Rukia in her way to be executed and give her the hope that she ''might'' have her life spared... and then practically say he was kidding, dashing her last bits of hope [[spoiler before Ichigo fight his way in the execution fields [[BigDamnHeroes and *does* save her]].
