* John Ratcliffe in ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'' was a [[HistoricalDomainCharacter real guy]] who got a HistoricalVillainUpgrade courtesy of Creator/{{Disney}}. The real Ratcliffe was more of a chump than a villain and was ultimately tortured to death by the Powhatan tribe. By contrast, the movie portrays him as a comically repugnant, gold-obsessed warmonger.warmonger who gets sent back to be punished in England at the end of the movie.

The character was originally depicted as a Western Caucasian (usually from England, France or Germany) but people from {{Eagleland}} joined the group later. If this is the case, expect some WhiteMansBurden excuse for his actions (which usually consists of taking over a place, exploiting the natives and the land, then leaving the place as an economic waste after the natives get fed up and kick him out). Two places you stand a good chance of seeing a non-white version of this trope are Chinese and Korean (both north and south, but mostly north) depictions of the Japanese, especially during the years of [[UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan Japanese imperialism]]. Chinese communists may also be portrayed this way in western films about Tibet.

* While GeorgeOrwell's 1934 novel ''Literature/BurmeseDays'' is intended to be a round condemnation of the whole institution of British colonialism (in this case in Burma), most of the imperialists are depicted as more arrogant, indolent or imbecilic rather than evil. The one unambiguously horrid example is the timber company manager (and '''very''' PoliticallyIncorrectVillain) Ellis, whose every utterance is a string of vile racial slurs directed at the Burmese, and who is so consumed by hatred of them that he unceasingly expresses his desire for the opportunity to torture/slaughter them all.
