* In the Literature/BookOfNehemiah from ''Literature/TheBible'', Nehemiah deals with one in the form of Shemaiah, the crippled son of Delaiah, the son of Mehetabel, who tries to make Nehemiah sin against his God by hiding himself in the house of God to protect himself from those that Shemaiah claims are out to kill him. Nehemiah sees what Shemaiah is really up to and calls him out on it.

* The Crippled God of the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is the closest thing to an overall BigBad of the [[RotatingArcs rather non-linear]] series; as his name suggests, to say he's not in prime physical condition would be an unbelievable understatement (he was pulled into the mortal world by a spell, crashed into the planet like a meteor, and his body was pretty much destroyed in the process- he's spent the millennia since in constant agony), and he's extremely ruthless, manipulative, and spiteful. However, it gradually becomes apparent that he's a deconstruction, as he's played with great sympathy and it becomes increasingly clear that all he really wants is to go home. [[spoiler: And when the local AbusivePrecursors hijack his powers in the last book, the protagonists end up helping him]].

* Langda Tyagi, the Iago character in ''Omkara,'' walks with a heavy limp due to a congenital defect. He makes up for the difficulty walking by being the best sharpshooter in the gang. Rajju [[SlowlySlippingIntoEvil helps him along]] by pointing out that "for fifteen years you've served this half-caste on a leg a half, and now this pretender Kesu comes out of nowhere and coolly snatches the bone from your mouth? Where did your guts go walking off to then? Company Garden?"

This trope may overlap with HandicappedBadass in the case of particularly powerful crippled baddies, and with DarkLordOnLifeSupport in particularly extreme examples. See also EvilAlbino, DepravedDwarf, EunuchsAreEvil, HookHand, RedRightHand, GoodScarsEvilScars, DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery, FourEyesZeroSoul.

* In ''Baahubali'', EvilUncle Bijjaladeva has an underdeveloped left arm, which he believes is the reason he's been denied the throne in favor of his younger brother. In reality it's because everyone knew he was a ManipulativeBastard.

Many villainous {{pirate}}s have {{Hook Hand}}s and {{Seadog Peg Leg}}s, though this may simply be to reinforce their badassery, a case of HandicappedBadass rather than Evil Cripple as these things are rarely shown to handicap them much. These [[DressedToPlunder attributes]] seem to be cases of FollowTheLeader; the peg leg originated with Long John Silver of ''Literature/TreasureIsland'' and the HookHand with Captain Hook of ''Literature/PeterPan'', and later writers just based their pirates on these guys.
