* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' had a lot of these, usually of the bizarre monster variety. However, Control Freak made a good enough impression during his brief fight in "Fear Itself" that he was later made the main villain of a couple episodes.

* The Powder Gangers in ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' are a gang of escaped convicts. They're probably the weakest faction in the game and play no role in the main story line, beyond being warm up for players at the beginning.
** Other then possibly The Fiends and White Legs-who both have a loose alliance with The Legion and are genuine threat to the region-pretty much any group of raiders in the games are this.

* Creator/MarvelComics have loads of these villains who show up in single issues or possibly in the middle of larger story arcs just to get beaten up: [[ComicBook/SpiderMan The Rhino]], [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor The Wrecking Crew]], and [[ComicBook/XMen The Blob]] just to name a few.

That's not even getting into the numerous nameless crooks that crime-fighting superheroes beat up on a regular basis, who are lucky enough if they even get a line in.

Whatever the case may be, the Bit Part Bad Guy always gets the short end of the butt-kicking stick. They'll almost always be quite low on the SlidingScaleOfVillainThreat and, compared to the rest of the story, on the silly side of the SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness. Now it must be said that all this doesn't mean that they are necessarily [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain ineffectual]] or not a threat to a random citizen, it just means that they are small fries in a much bigger pond. They can be quite dangerous and evil on their own for non-powerful heroes and will often in fact be given KickTheDog or PoliticallyIncorrectVillain traits, if only to justify their getting a comeuppance. The best hope a Bit Part Bad Guy has is to make a strong enough impression during their brief appearance that audiences demand they be brought back again, possibly upgraded to MonsterOfTheWeek status. Only once in a scarlet moon can such a villain even dream of [[FromNobodyToNightmare becoming Big Bad material]], though.

though. Their tendency to think small and opportunistically look for [[EvilIsPetty easy targets]] generally disqualifies them from becoming someone with grander plans or vision of any sort.

SubTrope of BitCharacter and PlotIrrelevantVillain; SuperTrope of MuggingTheMonster. Will often be given KickTheDog or PoliticallyIncorrectVillain traits, if only to justify their getting a comeuppance. Common in a BatmanColdOpen, when said ColdOpen doesn't feature a recurring villain; however, Bit Part Bad Guys can show up anywhere in the story, up to and including right before (and after) the climax.
