** Dwarfs in Myth/NorseMythology are a rather interesting case. The concept of dwarfs may have evolved from [[OurElvesAreBetter dark elves]]; indeed, the ''Literature/ProseEdda'' equates dwarfs with ''dökkálfar'' and ''svartálfar'' (literally "dark elves" and "black elves" in Old Norse, respectively). As such, you'd expect these guys to be pretty nasty, and they often are in the myths. But as time went on, they became shorter and less malevolent until they were recognizable as the [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame dwarves]] (spelled with a ''v'', following Creator/JRRTolkien's example) that we know and love today.

The Depraved Dwarf is a pint-sized bucket of malice. He [[AlwaysMale (and it's pretty much always a he)]] is either a sadistic psychopath, a twisted rapist, or at the very least a violent, cold-blooded criminal. They tend to show up when the hero has been rendered helpless. Often, expect {{giggling|Villain}}. Can go hand in hand with TheNapoleon, if the Depraved Dwarf's misanthropy is implied to be a response - [[MisplacedRetribution albeit a misdirected one]] - to discrimination and abuse faced [[FreudianExcuse as a result of their short stature]].

* Lord [[UnfortunateNames Farquaad]], the abnormally short BigBad of the first ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' movie, proves his evil cred by [[FantasticRacism banishing all the fairy tale creatures from his kingdom]][[note]]except Mama Bear from ''Literature/{{Goldilocks}}'', who he had made into a rug[[/note]], displaying a creepy interest in Princess Fiona, and (in his EstablishingCharacterMoment) having his goons waterboard -- er, ''milk''board -- the Gingerbread Man and rip off his legs. ''WesternAnimation/ShrekForeverAfter'' ups the ante with Rumpelstiltskin, who is even nastier than Farquaad.

* ''Main/LuckyLuke'': A more family friendly example than most is Joe Dalton who is moronic enough to qualify for IneffectualSympatheticVillain but at the same time is also rather bloodthirsty and sadistic (rejoicing in killing Luke and even other people and being ready to shoot at the slightest provocation) and can even become outright AxCrazy when he loses his shit.
