* Arguably Daimyo Kubota from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. While it's noteworthy that Kubota is a [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy competent villain]] and hangs around in the comics or a fairly decent stretch of time, in the end he's just a scheming noble whose ambition is to take over his particular DeadlyDecadentCourt, largely by political manipulation and taking advantage of the local justice system. By comparison the comic's BigBad is a sadistic and cruel PersonOfMassDestruction who [[ItMakesSenseInContext killed an entire room of paladins with a bouncing ball]], is looking to TakeOverTheWorld, and stands a pretty decent chance of actually destroying the world along the way. Kubota is pretty small time in comparison, regardless of the amount of attention he got in a minor story arc. Lampshaded when [[spoiler:V casually murders Kubota]] and then asks in exasperation "Now can we PLEASE resume saving the world?"

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', Bomb Voyage's confrontation with Mr. Incredible is significant only in that it gives Buddy an opening to try to get recruited as a sidekick and puts the hero under enough pressure to sharpen [[StartOfDarkness the rudeness of his rejection]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' has the minor Fly Brothers who do not even interact with Flik at all and only antagonise Francis causing a huge misunderstanding that leads to Flik mistaking the Circus Bugs for warriors and hiring them.

* ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' has an example in the minor smallest way possible both figuratively and literally with the Fly Brothers who do not even interact with Flik at all and only antagonise Francis causing a huge misunderstanding that leads to Flik mistaking the Circus Bugs for warriors and hiring them.

* The first humans the T-800 interacts with in the first two ''Film/{{Terminator}}'' movies, with the parallel scene in ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'' being a bit more of a tonal inversion of the biker bar scene from ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''.

SubTrope of BitCharacter; 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.

* 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.
* The beginning of SinCity's ''A Dame To Kill For'' features the private investigator main character spying on an [[DomesticAbuser abusive boyfriend]] and beating him up when he tries to hurt his mistress.
