This trope comes into play whenever a villain decides to don an outrageous, over-the-top costume, usually replete with [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience Dark Colors]], ShouldersOfDoom and SpikesOfVillainy, thinking it will make him look like a fearless, all-powerful BadAss. Instead, it makes him look pitiable and ridiculous, if not slightly unhinged.

* ComicBook/MartianManhunter 's had the villain Human flame, who fought using flamethrowers(J'onns weakness). He hasn't shown up for a long time, however, since his flamethrowers came from his nipples.

* Mello from ''Manga/DeathNote'' wearing black leather all over, but with navel bearing and huge fur collar is supposed to be seen as intimidating, but mostly looks laughably like he raided [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Squall Leonheart]]'s closet.

** Xenos, the evil priest king from ''[[Literature/{{Gor}} Outlaw of Gor]]''. Even the fact that he was played by the incredibly {{Badass}} Jack Palance couldn't make up for the fact that he was wearing a long dress and a hat that looked like an opening seed pod.

** Several Britannia nobles have hairstyles out of date by at least a hundred years, including the Emperor. The British [[BritishCourts just really love wigs]].

* About half of the main villains in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' suffer from this. You probably won't find many fans, even hard core ones, who disagree with the statement that the characters look like they're from a glam version of ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''.
** The Pillar Men wear nothing but loincloths and over-the-top Aztec accessories.
** Most villains would never be able to get away with half of the costumes Dio wears throughout Part 3. Also, his [[TheRenfield Renfield]], Vanilla Ice, has an even sillier outfit.
** Diavolo borders on, but comes up just short of CreepyCrossdresser.
** Pucci and Kira suffer from this the least, as Kira wears business suits[[note]]The strangest part of his clothes are the colors and his tie.[[/note]] and Pucci wears his priest outfit . The President in Steel Ball Run also averts this somewhat, at least as far as clothes- he wears a suit and a Badass Longcoat. His hair, on the other hand, looks like he ripped the banisters off several model staircases and glued them to his skull.

** And then there's [[spoiler:Ryuko wearing Junketsu]]. While [[spoiler:Satsuki]] looks [[{{Stripperiffic}} absolutely]] [[MsFanservice amazing]] in it, it looks like something from [[DiscoDan the 70's]] when [[spoiler:Ryuko puts it on]].

While [[spoiler:Satsuki]] looks [[{{Stripperiffic}} absolutely]] [[MsFanservice amazing]] in it, it looks like something from [[DiscoDan the 70's]] when [[spoiler:Ryuko puts it on]]. It's even worse when compared to how ''lovely'' [[spoiler: Satsuki]] looks when [[spoiler: [[http://i.imgur.com/HQm8C4V.jpg she has to wear Senketsu]].]]
