* ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes: In ''Adventure Comics'' #314, a villain called Alaktor recruits history's three greatest villains (UsefulNotes/{{Nero}}, UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler), and ... John Dillinger to take on the Legion. Apparently Alaktor considers bank robbery to be equal to mass genocide.
* In ''All-Select Comics'' #7, the sorcerer Terdu summons a group of villains from the past, whom he dubs the 'Men of Evil', to battle ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and Bucky. The Men of Evil were Captain Kidd, UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper, Frank and UsefulNotes/JesseJames, Literature/Bluebeard, Gyp-the-Blood, and three gangsters (names unrevealed) who had died in the electric chair decades earlier.

* In the 1960s ''{{Spider-Man}}'' series, a villain from an earlier episode, the Waxmaster Parafino, makes Wax Robots (?) of 'History's Greatest Villains. UsefulNotes/{{Blackbeard}}, UsefulNotes/JesseJames and 'the Executioner of Paris' (?) are used, though waxworks of a masked man with a dagger, and a rich-looking man are seen.

* The "House of Villains" episode of Disney's ''HouseOfMouse'' could be considered this in-universe, since many of the Disney villains are either dead or presumed dead in their own continuities - unless, of course, you buy the AnimatedActors hypothesis.

* Possibly the oldest example is in ''Literature/TheOdyssey'' as Odysseus goes to the Underworld and sees mythological villains being punished for their crimes, like the trickster Sisyphus, the husband-murdering daughters of Danaë, and the cannibalistic Tantalus.
* ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' has a much larger number in the Inferno section, some known to us only through the poem. Oddly, it also includes some scattered mythological villains, like Antaeus.
* ''Return to Groosham Grange'' has the waxworks of Hitler, a French Revolutionary and others brought to life from Madame Tussaud.
