In personality, he is a [[CardCarryingVillain one-dimensional, over-the-top, openly evil villain]] of limited intelligence who comes up with [[ZanyScheme elaborate schemes]] for the hero to foil -- kidnapping a [[DistressedDamsel helpless female]] and tying her up to either a [[ChainedToARailway railroad track]] or a ConveyorBeltODoom, in an attempt to [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty coerce her]] into [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe "marrying" him]] or relinquishing the deed to her property, is the old standard. He can usually be expected to [[DickDastardlyStopsToCheat go to great lengths to cheat at things he could easily win legitimately.]]

* Given every single national team from {{Anime/Medabots}} was a [[ForeignWrestlingHeel ridiculous national stereotype]], it wasn't too surprising that all three members of Team France turned out to be this.

* [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel's]] MadScientist nemesis Dr. Sivana doesn't have the wardrobe (or the mustache) but does invoke a few of these traits, including his CatchPhrase "Curses! Foiled Again!"
* ''ComicBook/{{Zot}}'': The HarmlessVillain Dr. Ignatius Rumbault Bellows was based on Professor Fate from ''TheGreatRace'' (see below) and is a pretty straight invocation of this trope. He's also a SteamPunk MadScientist with NoIndoorVoice.

* Barnaby from Creator/LaurelAndHardy's ''Film/MarchOfTheWoodenSoldiers'' replaces the mustache with sideburns, but fits every other aspect of the trope, including forcing the heroine to marry him in exchange for the mortgage.
** In the [[Film/BabesInToyland Disney re-make]] (which reverted to the title of the original Victor Herbert operetta, ''Theatre/BabesInToyland''), Barnaby (played by [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Ray Bolger]]) changes the side-whiskers for a small waxed moustache.

** Abrim in ''Discworld/{{Sourcery}}'' is sort of this trope [[XMeetsY meets]] EvilChancellor. When he first appears, it's said that "He twirled his mustache, probably foreclosing another dozen mortgages."
* ''All'' the villains in the ''Literature/TheSwordOfTruth'' books by Creator/TerryGoodkind are rapists and pederasts. If they are hidden villains, the first thing they try to do once they reveal themselves as villains is try to rape someone. Also, the villain from the first book (and some others) is named ''Darken'' Rahl. Might as well have just called him "Snidely Whiplash." For that matter, the major villain for the rest of the series is "Jagang", which has the word "gang" in it. And he even ''does'' have a mustache to twirl.

* The American ''[[Series/NorthAndSouthUS North and South]]'' miniseries (no relation to the English novel) had several spanning the course of three books, most of them Southerners: mega evil plantation owner/wifebeater/slave abuser David Carradine, cackling racist and adultery enthusiast Ashton, slimy slave overseer Salem Jones, bloodthirsty prison warden Wayne Newton, [[JokerImmunity seemingly-immortal]] wannabe warlord Elkinah Bent, and Ku Klux Klan co-founder (''and'' evil landlord, god help us) Robert Wagner, among others. Lest you think the Confederacy gets the short end of the stick, there are plenty of Yankee bigots: Jonathan Frakes and wife (hates the Irish), Kirstie Alley (hates southerners), and Forest Whitaker (hates white people). The latter forms an alliance with his old overseer and raids their plantation, all for the express purpose of raping ''one'' slave girl who turn him down years ago.
* Speaking of racists, ''{{Roots}}'' rolled out a new arch-villain for each chapter. First there was the truly creepy first mate of Kunta's slaving ship, Mr. Slater; then the ghoulish, rape-happy plantation owner Tom Moore; and finally Lloyd Bridges as a particularly meddlesome racist. The latter even says "you haven't seen the last of me" during an encounter with Kunta's grandson.

* Dampierre from ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul Calibur Broken Destiny]]'' is a variation on the trope: although he otherwise fits the trope perfectly, and commits petty crimes typical to the Dastardly Whiplash archetype, he's actually more of a good guy than a true villain and ultimately wishes to atone for the wrongs he's done. Quite {{justified|Trope}} when you've got villains such as an OmnicidalManiac EldritchAbomination [[ArtifactOfDoom resurrected from an evil sword]], a sadistic, ''insane'' [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Womanchild]], and similar nasties running around freely.

* Yoshiaki Mogami of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara 3'' is this, right down to having an incredibly pointy mustache. About the only major action he takes is kidnapping Matsu so that the Maeda clan join up with Ieyasu. It's even shown in his fighting style, which is a mix of ConfusionFu and [[CombatPragmatist Combat Pragmatism]], meaning that he makes good use of tricks like [[LookBehindYou point somewhere else to distract enemies]], groveling on the ground to prep for Counter Attacks, and generally fighting in a tricky/deceptive fashion.

** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when Crazyfish appears, only for Spongebob to confess that he made up the incident to avoid looking foolish. It turns out Crazyfish just wanted to see Spongebob because Spongebob makes really good Krabby Patties. When Spongebob spills a deluxe Krabby Patty with extra cheese on Crazyfish's suit, they settle things with a quick game of RockPaperScissors.

No surprise, since he's voiced by PaulLynde.

An oddly specific kind of character, the Dastardly Whiplash is a cartoonish villain taken from the silent film tradition (or really from the [[OlderThanRadio old stage]] [[MeloDrama melodrama tradition]]). Usually a ManOfWealthAndTaste, in Great Britain (*cough EvilBrit cough*), he was generally a [[AristocratsAreEvil Bad Baronet]]; in the U.S., he was often an [[MorallyBankruptBanker Evil Banker]] who held the mortgage on the heroine's farm. Physically, he's slightly hunched with an [[SinisterSchnoz exaggerated nose]] and chin, a [[GoodHairEvilHair curling black]] [[BadassMustache moustache]] (all the better to twirl at you, [[TermsOfEndangerment my dear]]), and an elaborate costume, usually an old-fashioned [[EvilWearsBlack black suit]] with a [[BlackCloak cloak]] and a hat, usually a [[NiceHat top hat]] but occasionally a DastardlyDapperDerby.
