* [[WebVideo/GuaranteedVideo New Kids on the Rock's]] "Ryan's Christmas Wish" features the Misery Meister, who is just as moustache-twirlingly evil as the name would imply. Although, unusually, he's played by a [[CrosscastRole female actor]].

* ''VideoGame/SuperSolvers''' BigBad Morty Maxwell comes across as one of these in the clothes of a MadScientist, due to his sinister mustache, cartoonishly villainous personality, and constant scheming.

* In an UnbuiltTrope {{aver|tedTrope}}sion, the silent film epitome of this character, Koerner (Paul Panzer) in ''The Perils of Pauline'', is a fairly young man (the secretary of the eponymous Pauline (Pearl White)'s guardian, bent on gaining her fortune), clean-shaven, and not particularly antiquated or exaggerated in manner or appearance. (Incidentally, contrary to popular belief, few of the "Pauline" films were cliffhangers; most were self-contained episodes.)

He generally has two moods: when happy, he [[EvilLaugh sneers, cackles]], and [[HandRubbing rubs his hands in malevolent glee]], and when unhappy, he glowers, sulks, [[GlovedFistOfDoom makes a fist]], and bites his index finger and [[BadBoss snaps at his sidekick/henchman]], should he have any. He speaks largely in AntiquatedLinguistics, preferring such [[GoshDangItToHeck expletives]] as "[[CurseOfTheAncients Curses! Foiled again!]]" and "[[TrrrillingRrrs Drrrat!]]" (or, for extreme cases, "Drat and ''double'' drat!").

drat!"). He often turns out to be a HarmlessVillain, despite his menacing appearance.



Often turns out to be a HarmlessVillain, despite his menacing appearance. This trope is almost never played straight today. The Dastardly Whiplash is well on his way to being a DeadHorseTrope, having been largely replaced by the likes of the VillainWithGoodPublicity, although some modern works still use him for sheer {{Camp}} value, or as a go-to gag about stereotypical one-note villains. The ''look'', however, is far from a DeadHorseTrope amongst [[QueerAsTropes the "bear" subculture]]. Bonus points if one of his names is an adverb.
