* Even by Wrestling/ProgressWrestling standards, "The Villain" Marty Scurll elevates this trope to [[EvilIsHammy gloriously hammy heights]]. Scurll has gotten so popular he's even carried over his act to Wrstling/RingOfHonor.

* ''CodeGeass'' more or less [[AvertedTrope averts]] this, as the Britannian Empire actually appears to be based out of America. However, Luciano Bradley is given a British accent in the English dub.

** The topic of British villains in movies and Rickman in particular was discussed on Creator/StephenFry's panel show ''Series/{{QI}}'', while on ''Series/TopGear'', Scottish actor Creator/BrianCox suggested to Jeremy Clarkson that Brits were cast as the baddies in Hollywood movies because Americans "fundamentally mistrust intelligence."

* In one episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' Moriarty from the ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes'' stories comes back in holographic form to menace the crew. However, he was played an American actor who miraculously effected a stunningly believable British accent (Daniel Davis later used the same flawless British accent in ''Series/TheNanny''). Justified in this case by the fact that, well, it's Moriarty from the Sherlock Holmes stories--what else would he be ''but'' British?
** Subverted somewhat when it becomes apparent that this Moriarty is really [[spoiler:not all that evil or ruthless, with his main motivation being simply the right to exist.]]
** Inverted by BBC ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'''s Dubliner Moriarty. Justified in that the name 'Moriarty' actually is of Irish origin.
** Also, [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]] had Creator/DavidWarner (see above in the Film section) play an unashamedly evil Cardassian who had no qualms about torturing (physically and mentally) Captain Picard.
* Adam Monroe and Daniel Linderman from ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. Though Adam is actually played by an [[FakeBrit American]].
