Added DiffLines:

* All over the place in ''Series/ScreamQueens2015'', given that most of the cast are both [[RichBitch current or former members of Kappa House]] and [[TheSociopath certifiable sociopaths]]. Occasionally subverted with certain... [[FashionVictimVillain questionable fashion choices]] on part of [[AlphaBitch Channel #1]]. [[spoiler: Gigi is the best example, since she's a murderer ''and'' a fantastic decorator. Even [[TheHero Grace]] admits that some lamps she chose really tied her dad's living room together.]]

* Woland of ''TheMasterAndMargarita'': throughout most of the book, he appears as a wealthy, educated, and flamboyantly dressed foreigner. He's also [[spoiler: Satan]], so evil comes naturally, although whether his actions are for good or ill constitutes a debate unto itself.

* In ''TheGuardians'', this is the form demons take to live among humans and tempt them into evil; at least one is a US Senator. Subverted when the Guardians can't find a demon and later realize it's taken the form of a ''[[DoubleStandard woman]]'' [[AlwaysMale of wealth and taste]].

* Lee Woo-Jin, the antagonist of ''Film/{{Oldboy}}''. The final confrontation happens just after he had a shower, which means we are treated to the Man Of Wealth And Taste's version of a LockAndLoadMontage, including loving close-ups of his tie clip, his cufflinks, his shoelaces...

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'': Vandal Savage always wears a nice suit or a nice uniform, when he hasn't had a castle dropped on him.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'': Vandal Savage always wears a nice suit or a nice uniform, when he hasn't had a castle dropped on him. Also, the Ultra Humanite is a lover of the fine arts, including opera. (Much to the chagrin of Luthor, who ''hates'' opera, and has a cell next to his on Stryker's Island.)

* Notably, [[{{Satan}} the Devil]] from ''{{Reaper}}'' is always seen wearing his trademark suit (of which he has multiple copies), and even has a subplot where his tailor dies, leaving him at a loss with what to wear.

Added DiffLines:

* Mammon from Comicbook/{{Spawn}} usually appears as this. In his first appearance, he's not identified by name and so is easily mistaken for Satan.

** There's also Hades, whose home is described as ''[[Literature/TheHobbit Smaug's hoard]]'', only with OCD and relentlessly good taste. In his capacity as the god of wealth, he's picked up a fair number of treasures over the millenia, a surprising number of which are artworks of various kinds. He also dresses well, and offers Harry a glass of very good wine.

[[spoiler: Though as Harry points out, he's not evil; despite the tendency of modern authors to portray him as the Greek analog of Satan, he's actually HeroicNeutral]].

* Lord Garygoyle from ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'' also fits. His suite is immaculate red and worthy for the dinner party he invites sponsors too. The only flaw is his mask and KKK style hat

* Used a lot in ''Manga/TigerMask'': the usual attire of Tiger's Cave wrestlers for public non-fight apparitions is an expensive suit and the mask, Tiger's Cave admins wear nice suits and a Ku Klux Klan-like mask, [[TheDragon Mr. X]] almost constantly wears an expensive shirt, tuxedo and top hat suit complete with a golden ring with a tiger's head (the exceptions being when refereeing the World Maskmen League, when he discarded the tuxedo and top hat while on the ring, and a travel attire he wore twice while trying to pass unnoticed), the anime-only supreme admin almost always wears a nice white suit (even if never with the mask), and many heel wrestlers outside of the ring wear expensive clothes of good taste. Played with by the protagonist: while his out-of-the-ring attire as Tiger Mask is composed by ''the same suit of the admins'', the mask and a tiger-striped cloak, he's quickly revealed as an AntiHero.

* ''Film/{{Bedazzled 1967}}'', the 1967 version -- the Devil, when he's not dressed for evil work (as a telephone lineman, beekeeper, scuba gear drilling holes in oil tankers, etc) wears a tuxedo, cape, and cool mod sunglasses - and red socks with whatever else he's wearing.

* James St. Patrick, the lead character in ''Series/{{Power}}'' he's a major drug dealer who worked his way up from the hood where he was a corner boy to the top of the distribution business. He lives in a penthouse apartment, above the lawyers and the doctors, and wears stylish, tailor made suits. While the image is mostly legitimate - he truly does embrace the high life - he also still enjoys many of the simple pleasures from his poor upbringing when he gets the chance.

* In Myth/ClassicalMythology, Pluto, the Roman god of the underworld, was also the god of wealth (although the question of taste is less certain). He's not really a villain, although hhe suffers from the EveryoneHatesHades trope and some of his characteristics were transferred to the Christian depiction of Satan.
