* The PostCrisis version of Comicbook/WonderWoman foe the Cheetah was an British archeologist named Barbara-Ann Minerva. The ''Comicbook/New52'' reboot relocated her to Idado, but her Nottinghamshire background was restored in ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'', although that also made her more of a TragicVillain.

* Creator/JulianGlover has, in fact, played villains in James Bond, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Doctor Who, and elsewhere, most of them with a Brit accent.
* ''Film/IpMan 2'': The British are portrayed as opponents and racist to the Chinese, including a [[PoliceBrutality brutal policeman]] and a boxer called Twister who takes sexual pleasure in brutally beating sick and elderly Chinese Warriors to death.

* A recurring villain for a season of ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' is a Russian criminal mastermind named Alexei Volkoff, played by TimothyDalton with a British accent. Later turns out to be justified [[spoiler:as Volkoff is actually a British guy brainwashed to think that he's a Russian criminal mastermind]]. Later on, his mantle as the BigBad and the EvilBrit is taken by [[spoiler:his daughter]].

* Averted, similar to ''Spider-Man 2'', in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. JasonIsaacs plays the first season's BigBad Admiral Zhao as a FakeAmerican, seemingly to specifically avoid the most villainous man seen at that point in the Fire Nation also being the only Englishman. At this point we hadn't seen Ozai or Azula...

* ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'''s BigBads so far have been the non-specificlally British MacPherson of season 1 (Scottish name, Welsh actor), the English [[spoiler:and female]] HG Wells of season 2 and Charlotte DuPrix of season 4. There has also been, Benedict Valda [[spoiler:though it turned out it was just in Pete's head]] and Alice Liddell. When HG's mind was rewritten, so she could have a chance at a normal life, she gained an American accent. There's also Paracelsus, who is supposed to be Swiss, but is played by Creator/AnthonyHead with a British accent.

** Patrick Stewart's usually warm English tones gave Locutus an extra edge of menace when he was assimilated into the Borg collective during "The Best of Both Worlds".

** Scorpius sounds more posh/cultured Australian than British to British audiences. Clearly Wayne Pygram is doing a "villain" voice, but it's not a British accent by any means.

*** In fact, all major bad guys were played by Brits: The Emperor (Ian [=McDiarmid=] is Scottish), Darth Vader (although not his voice actor, as the voice of David Prowse was too west-country, earning him the nickname Darth Farmer), Count Dooku (Creator/ChristopherLee), and Darth Maul (London-based Scot Ray Park's voice was dubbed by British voice-actor and comedian Peter Serafinowicz).
