* Japanese director TakashiMiike Creator/TakashiMiike is fond of this trope. Examples:



* Turning this trope UpToEleven, in Creator/NeilGaiman's story "Keepsakes and Treasures", where there is a DiabolicalMastermind crime boss Mr. Alice who likes to have sex with attractive young men. Similar to the ''LayerCake'' example, the VillainProtagonist insists that this predilection does not make Mr. Alice a "poof". (Many older cultures would agree; whom a powerful man penetrated did not matter, it added to his power regardless, and women were sometimes seen as inducing unmanliness.)

* ''Film/ThePunisher2004'' had Quintain Glass, Howard Saint's best friend and second in command as a closet gay... at least from him. His wife apparently knew. This came to a head when Frank blackmails him with outing him, and uses that and other forged/out of context evidence to [[spoiler: implicate him and the mobsters wife as having an affair! The boss ends up killing his friend and wife, but not after slapping her for "insulting" his memory by claiming he was gay just to save her own skin.]]

* The ''BareKnuckle[=/=]StreetsOfRage'' series for the Sega Genesis had a stereotypically gay miniboss named Ash. Of course, he got LostInTranslation when the game was ported to the United States.

* Inevitable [[WhateleyUniverse]] example: Deathlist, a ruthless cyborg killing machine who has slain more superheroes than any other villain, and his lover Chessmaster. They are the only ones who have ever dared attack Whateley Academy directly, though they paid the price for doing so by having their minions slaughtered and ending up on the run from both heroes and villains alike.

A homosexual member of organized crime. This is particularly common in British works set around the 1950s and 60s, as the notorious 1960s LondonGangster Ronnie Kray was fairly openly bisexual. Many fictional Gayngsters are NoCelebritiesWereHarmed fictionalised versions of him, to some degree. In the US, the Gayngster is often a ScaryBlackMan or Latino. The character can be repressed or fairly open about it, but an important idea is the contrast between his "un-masculine" (how he would see it) sexual orientation and brutal, macho behavior.

** [[spoiler: If it wasn't for Bob's quick thinking in Lennie's hideout, the whole Wild Bunch, Johnny and [[BadAss possibly]] Archy would be dead. He puts two-and-two together when Johnny mentions Lennie "grassing Archy up", to realize A: that "Sidney Shaw" is Lenny, and B: that Archy must know about "Sidney".]]
