* Skeletor from ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'' became this in ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' --in the original minicomics he was a fairly serious villain, but since censors were constantly breathing down Creator/{{Filmation}}'s neck about what they perceived to be a horribly violent cartoon about a sword-swinging barbarian, they decided to make the scary man with a SkullForAHead less scary by playing him for laughs. Though still an evil schemer, the cartoon Skeletor was turned into a LaughingMad DeadpanSnarker who kept cracking one-liners in which he insulted the world in general and lamented how he was SurroundedByIdiots. [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002 The 2002 remake]] of the show turned him a little more menacing and threatening, but kept his sarcasms and general tendency to get all the best lines in the show.

** The Sheriff of Nottingham is a cruel bastard, but gets a good number of amusing one-liners over the course of the film. Plus having the yokel voice of Pat Buttram adds extra entertainment value.

* Mugatu in ''Film/{{Zoolander}}'', a deliciously hammy villain with a VillainousFashionSense and a hilarious hairstyle who wants to assassinate the Malaysian Prime Minister by getting people to do it with over the top hypnosis videos. Of course, any villain played by Will Ferrell is certain to be this trope.



* The villain of the [=CarrotTop=] comedy ''Film/ChairmanOfTheBoard'' is the only particularly funny thing about it. It isn't worth it.

** Madame Medusa from ''Disney/TheRescuers'' is basically a redheaded [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' Cruella]], an overly vain, hammy and over-the-top woman who DrivesLikeCrazy and is always yelling at her BumblingSidekick.

** [[MagnificentBastard Tarquin]], a man of [[DeadpanSnarker remarkably dry wit]] and a [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy love of heroic tropes]] who celebrated his reunion with his son with a festival of lights... made out of immolated prisoners.

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' has Dr "Eggman" Robotnik. Many alternate media representations are similar (see below). What do you expect from an egg shaped scientist who makes toy-like robots?

* [[JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio Brando]] is not only only a fan favorite, but loved those who understand literally the bare minimum about the series. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment He also is introduced into the series by stealing Jonathon's girlfriend Erina's first kiss,kicking JoJo's Dog Danny, setting said dog ON FIRE and only really because he just wanted to treat Jonathon like shit so Dio could manipulate him into getting most of his fathers inheritance.]] And he only gets crueler as the series goes.
