* ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'': There was a kids' EU novel titled "The Glove of Darth Vader" and it was about the eponymous glove as a MementoMacGuffin. Presumably the bad guy made this gesture some more after he found it. It was actually a literal ArtifactOfDoom burned and eventually drove whoever wore it insane. Naturally the bad guys wanted it anyway.

** For bonus GlovedFistOfDoom, there was a kids' EU novel titled "The Glove of Darth Vader" and it was about the eponymous glove as a MementoMacGuffin. Presumably the bad guy made this gesture some more after he found it.
*** Actually, it really ''was'' an [[ArtifactOfDoom Gloved fist of Doom.]] It burned and eventually drove whoever wore it insane. Naturally the bad guys wanted it anyway.

** Of course, it is perfectly reasonable for the judge to don menacing gloves since [[spoiler:it is revealed later that he is a toon himself and the glove is for his protection...]]
*** [[spoiler:Given the chemicals stated to be present in Dip, a normal human would get nasty chemical burns putting their hand in it as well, so this isn't exactly telling on Doom's part. Heck, even standing in the presence of the stuff would likely cause severe tissue damage to the linings of the lungs.]]

** In WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries, recurring villain Mozenrath, another EvilSorcerer, frequently uses the GlovedFistOfDoom, and he does actually have a glove; specifically, one that [[AppliedPhlebotinum gave him magic powers]] but [[RedRightHand turned his right hand skeletal.]]

* [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Dr. Horrible]] does it at least once, at the end of the Sing-Along Blog, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/horriblefist_4964.jpg just before he enters the room to join the Evil League of Evil.]] Symbolically, they look just like Captain Hammer's gloves.

* The Flying Glove from ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' is this personified and magnified.
* ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'': Though he never dons gloves, Gru does this when he announces his plans to steal the moon.
* Syndrome does it in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', with a [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/syndrome1_9808.bmp semi-closed fist]] (reversing the trope with ''white'' gloves).
* Jaffar in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' makes the move - sans gloves - when he turns into a genie. "ULTIMATE COSMIC POWER!"

* DoctorSteel does this near the beginning of ''The Dr. Steel Show'', [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/experimenttime_4442.jpg episode 2]] (actually pulling gloves on over his gloves!), and is sometimes depicted that way in his propaganda art and [[www.doctorsteelarchives.com/wp-content/gallery/dr-steel/3644.jpg photos]].

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Prototype", Unit 3947 clenches a fist when talking of how they will now destroy the enemy in their RobotWar. As the emotionless android lacks the LargeHam associated with such evil ranting, it looks a bit {{narm}}.
