* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Dowager_Cixi Cixi]]- the last strong leader of the [[DynastiesFromShangToQing Last Chinese imperial dynasty]] (and a BigBad from the perspective of people ranging from Chinese revolutionaries to Western Leaders) had these for similar reasons to Mock Duck. Long fingernails were attractive in the imperial court for the reasons mentioned before. Couple that with Cixi's career involving working her way from being an imperial concubine- through allegedly acting as a FemmeFatale - up to being an Imperial mother to being the true power, and she can at least be accused of it. Though like real life the situation was GreyAndGrayMorality and how truly bad she was is disputable, [[https://www.rom.on.ca/sites/default/files/styles/blog_large/public/blog_post/thumbnail/cixi.jpg?itok=W0dzwKna her formidably sized nails are not.]]

** Azula and Mai from though they later cut them. Although [[MamaBear Ursa]] (nice lady, from what we can tell) had them too, so maybe it's just Fire Nation fashion for nobles and royalty. Azula also uses the slashing motion in combat in her first episode, giving Zuko three nice straight scars.
