* You can't possibly toss a ball into a room filled with ''{{Theatre/Elisabeth}}'' fans without hitting someone who loves the show because of Death, whether it be AllGirlsWantBadBoys or LoveToHate. He's snazzy in every version. Into OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous? There's Uwe Kröger and an entire fleet of Takarazuka actresses. Adore HellBentForLeather? There's Mark Seibert and the rest of the new Deaths in the German/Austrian productions. Somewhere in between? Hello, Máté Kamarás. The show is very often marketed as a love story between Elisabeth and Death, and/or a triangle if you add Franz Joseph.

There is a reason actors fight for the chance to play the bad guy. The lines [[ChewingTheScenery are great,]] the costumes [[EvilCostumeSwitch are awesome]], the [[VillainSong songs are spectacular]], the villains often look [[EvilIsSexy much sexier]] [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains than the heroes]], and they don't have to spend the whole shoot pretending they are nicer than anyone they've ever met. [[https://www.wired.com/2012/07/why-do-supervillains-fascinate-us/ No, seriously.]]

* The [[TheEmpire Imperium]] in ''TabletopGame/StrikeLegion'' has this going for it by being an {{Expy}} of the Imperium of Man, but they go MANY extra miles, possessing armies that include Godzilla type monsters, MANY forms of super soldiers even deadlier than its [[SpaceMarine Space Marines]], and [[MonsterClown MonsterClowns]] that include lightsaber wielding {{Expy}}s of TheJoker.

* ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'' initially plays this straight, but the second half of the story [[AvertedTrope averts]] it ''[[{{Deconstruction}} hard]]''. At first, Jade is essentially the same character, with the addition that she's now a villain, and generally just succeeds where other villains failed just to prove that she ''can'', without really acting truly "evil" (at one point she organizes a complex scheme top steal the Dog Talisman for no other reason than to make her dog immortal). But RealityEnsues amd between the continued Shadowkahn corruption, and a TraumaCongaLine [[spoiler: she [[MotiveDecay slowly becomes]] [[SanitySlippage worse and]] [[TheCaligula worse]] and starts crossing the MoralEventHorizon repeatedly, and becoming less and less sympathetic.]] Lampshaded by the author at one point:
--> ''' Eduard Kassel:''' I am sure many of you are disappointed, wanting a cool villain Jade. Well, you had her, more or less, for a while. This story has been about exploring Jade's fall to darkness, not celebrating it. And my explorations, in planning this story, lead me to [[EvilIsNotAToy evil not being a toy]]. And as [[SLowlySlippingIntoEvil you give yourself to darkness]], [[BeingEvilSucks bit by bit you lose yourself to it]].

Why is all that true? Why does the bad guy get all the cool stuff? [[TheVillainMakesThePlot The more interesting the bad guy, the more interesting the story]]. It really is that simple. You don't have a story unless you have conflict. The bad guy in most cases ''is'' the conflict.

** From the spinoff ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' computer games: [[SinisterMinister Eliphas the Inheritor]] is universally considered one of the top five characters, as is [[LaughablyEvil Gorgutz 'Ead 'Unter]]. Mainly because Eliphas is almost painfully {{badass}} with a dark charisma and Gorgutz is {{crazy awesome}}ly insane.
