* The Kurgan from ''{{Film/Highlander}}'' isnít just a sadistic murderer and rapist, he also takes a bizarre amount of joy from even [[PokeThePoodle tiniest, most inconsequential acts of evil imaginable]]. At one point he snuffs out memorial candles and behaves crassly in a church for no reason other then [[EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor finding it funny]]. He also likes to indulge in petty and childish taunting whenever he meets other immortals, such as rubbing [[spoiler:the rape of [=Macleodís=] wife]] in the latterís face and using it to claim heís a better lover than [=Macleod=].

May overlap with HateSink, a character massively despised for actual villainous actions. Contrast with PokeThePoodle when ''all'' the supposed villain does is something actually harmless- they don't do anything overwhelmingly evil, but frequently behave like a mild dick to maintain their Villain Cred. See HarmlessVillain for someone who lives doing this.

* In ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'', [[BigBad Dante]] takes over people's bodies and has thousands of people die to make the Philosopher's Stone for her to use [[ItsAllAboutMe so she can live longer]], manipulating the Homunculi by lying that she will make them human. She wants to take over Rose's body next so she can screw Ed, the 15/16 year old son of her former lover (and possibly husband) Hohenheim. She's very abusive towards her Homunculi servants and [[spoiler:is killed [[HoistByHisOwnPetard by Gluttony after she lobotomized him so he wouldn't think about anything besides eating.]]]]

* Dan in ''Anime/GenmaWars'' is a JerkAss bandit who loves robbing helpless peasants and make their lives even harder than they already are. He tricks one of the protagonists Gin into eating human flesh that was disguised as a roasted pig. [[spoiler: This ends up costing Dan his life as Gin becomes so furious that he kills him for it.

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'' episode 162: Toby Horhorta has lost his sock (Which was on a necklace he was wearing the whole time), Black Snake gestures to show him it's hanging from his chest. Toby starts sobbing and thanking Black snake, only to have him rip it to shreds in front of his face for laughs. Toby also has anthropomorphic dog features, so this could also be a nod to the KickTheDog trope.

* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' villain the Penguin could be the TropeNamer. He likes to style himself as an aristocratic gentleman, but in reality he's really just a thug who deals with the inferiority he feels because of his stunted appearance by lashing out at every possible slight, both real and imagined. This is the main focus of ''ComicBook/PenguinPainAndPrejudice'', which shows how Penguin murdered his abusive father and brothers, and in adulthood, systematically destroys the lives of anyone who angers him for ANY reason, such as a man who bumped into him at a nightclub and called him fat before he realized who he was talking to and desperatly apologized, and a coroner who was chewing gum while removing the body of the Penguin's mother from her bedroom.

* Many of [[QuirkyMinibossSquad the Forsaken]] are like this is ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', devoting as much time to payback for slights real or percieved as they do to world domination, and even then are too selfish to work together well. [[TheAntichrist Moridin]], the head Forsaken, really finds the rest of them rather tiresome (being a [[StrawNihilist more philosophical kind of bad guy]]) and is in general much more courteous to his ArchEnemy [[TheChosenOne Rand]] than he is to his own allies as a result. The Forsaken Demandred is something of a {{deconstruction}}; he was driven to evil almost entirely by his envy of Lews Therin Telamon, but it's made plane just how much he's let jealousy and hate eat up his life and he's ultimately played more for [[HeroKiller fear]] and [[YouCouldHaveUsedYourPowersForGood tragedy]] than scorn.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' has the titular mask itself. While its ultimate goal is to destroy Termina, that doesn't stop it from committing smaller and petty acts of cruelty such as shattering the Great Fairies into fragments of themselves, de-aging Kaefi into a child days before his wedding, turning Link into a Deku Scrub, attacking Koume in Woodfall Swamp and cursing Termina's four main regions. Unlike most examples, however, this only serves to make Majora all the more terrifying as like the Joker above, it seems completely indiscriminate in its villainy. Whether it's ruining someone's life, turning people into strange objects, or wanton acts of mass slaughter, its all part of the same sick game.
