* 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]], displaying a creepy interest in Princess Fiona, and (as 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.

* Bushwick Bill of Music/GetoBoys fame certainly liked to cultivate this persona. Be warned, 'cause "Size Ain't Shit." He does his share of horror-rapping on tracks like "Chuckie" and "Murder Avenue." In more recent years, though, he has subverted this trope by [[RatedGForGangsta venturing into gospel music]].

* While [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]] is by no means depraved, this trope is so common InUniverse that it makes him a constant target of suspicion on his homeworld of Barrayar. In less parochial areas of the universe, he's fine.

* Lord [[UnfortunateNames Farquaad]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' is a dwarf (though [[IgnoreTheDisability don't mention that]] to him; [[TheNapoleon he's quite sensitive about it]]), and also a racist pervert who takes a creepy interest in Princess Fiona. In his EstablishingCharacterMoment, he has 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.

* The Nibelungs in ''Literature/{{Nibelungenlied}}''
* Dwarfs in general in Myth/NorseMythology.
* Goblins and [[NewerThanTheyThink gremlins]] in English folklore.
* Kobolds in Germal folklore. As you can see, this is quite a common theme.

Dwarfs in general in Myth/NorseMythology.
* Goblins
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 [[NewerThanTheyThink gremlins]] ''svartálfar'' (literally "dark elves" and "black elves" in English folklore.
* Kobolds
Old Norse, respectively). As such, you'd expect these guys to be pretty nasty, and they often are in Germal folklore. As you can see, this is quite the myths. But as time went on, they became shorter and less malevolent until they were recognizable as the [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame dwarves]] (spelled with a common theme.''v'', following Creator/JRRTolkien's example) that we know and love today.
* Many fairy tales also feature depraved dwarfs -- for instance, ''Literature/{{Rumpelstiltskin}}'', ''Literature/SnowWhiteAndRoseRed'', and ''[[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/authors/aulnoy/1892/yellowdwarf.html The Yellow Dwarf]]''.
