* ''Anime/InazumaEleven'' Most of the antagonistic teams in season 2 wear skin-tight uniforms and the members are pretty attractive unless they're a {{Gonk}}. One notable example is [[spoiler:Dark Emperor Kazemaru]], whose EvilMakeover made him even more attractive for the fangirls.
** Aphrodi as well. He's a {{Bishonen}} with long, flowing, blond hair and looks fabulous even when (or especially when) he curb-stomps the main team. He's named after the goddess of beauty after all.

Jack is probably the closest example, though still not actually ''quite'' evil.

** Azula is built from the ground up with this trope in mind, and manages to be a spectacular example despite wearing (entirely practical) armor most of the time. Either that, or the creators ''hilariously'' misjudged how a lithe, sexy, raven-haired, busty teenaged girl who talks like TheVamp at all times would go over. (Fun fact: Music/GreyDeLisle uses the same voice for Azula as she does for a [[DepravedBisexual Bisexual]] [[LesbianVampire Vampire]] in ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines''.)

* Morro from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ninjago}}'' is by far the fan favorite of the villains because of his relatively PrettyBoy appearance (especially in a series where most villains appear monsterous) and amazingly seductive voice despite being a vengeful ghost. His mission to prove himself as the Green Ninja only drives this home.

* The "[[UnsportsmanlikeGloating Oedo~tai dance]]" of World Wonder Ring STARDOM is based on this trope, but the individual standout is Hana Kimura, despite the fact she wrestles in more clothing with the group than when solo. Toni Storm was once so put off by Kimura's "dancing" in particular that she forcibly tagged out of a match without even attempting to engage Kimura.

A hero [[FaceHeelTurn temporarily tempted by evil]] tends to suddenly wear skimpier clothes and be more sexually assertive. Many fans will find them sexier this way and perhaps dread the return to prudery that will accompany their [[StatusQuoIsGod return to goodness.]] If the {{Love Interest|s}} is the initial MsFanservice, then TheBaroness or TheVamp has to take it to the next level, sometimes immediately.

An opportunity for {{Fanservice}} of all kinds. Also sets the stage for UnfortunateImplications, frequently invoking various {{Double Standard}}s attached to the sexuality (and the "goodness" of that sexuality) of a character depending on their gender. This is mostly applied to female villains, although [[FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon attractive male villains]] are becoming more common, especially in series geared toward a female audience. This character's almost guaranteed to garner loads of entirely [[DracoInLeatherPants undeserved sympathy]] from fans (especially if male), but is so ingrained in certain cultures that it's not going away any time soon. In American film specifically this is probably related to the period [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode way back when]] when ''only'' evil was allowed to be sexy -- since SexSells regardless.
