* Kylo Ren from ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' publicly dresses and acts like DarthWiki/DarthVader, but underneath that helmet? A pale, gangly guy who [[TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse doesn't look threatening in the least]]. Moreover, in private, he shows a fanboyish obsession with Vader (which explains [[DarthVaderClone his fashion choices]]) and [[PsychopathicManchild behaves like an angsty teenager]]. ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaOSCASqLsE had a field day with this]], as did the "{{Emo|Teen}} Kylo Ren" [[https://twitter.com/kylor3n page]] on Website/{{Twitter}}.
** Ultimately a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] - Kylo may be a bit of a nebbish in person, but he's still a mass murderer who is high in the command structure of a fascist movement, and to all evidence, it's his obsession with Vader [[spoiler:and resentment of his other family]] that led to him ending up where he did. Immature and obsessive is ''not'' the same thing as harmless.

* Darth Vulcan, from Main/{{TheRiseOfDarthVulcan}}, was a full-core cosplaying, roleplaying, comic book fan geek, who abandoned all his fandoms and deliberately began roleplaying as a "cool kid"/jerk in order to survive high school. Then he found the Alicorn Amulet and everything went downhill from there...

Note that being a nerd does ''not'' equal being a wimp. Not a total one at least. However, the villain might exploit such stereotypes and pull a WoundedGazelleGambit or similar after his nerdy side has been revealed, even if he actually is a {{Badass}}.

badass.



** Prince Zuko is genuinely good-looking and a true {{badass}}, and he's skilled at fighting, giving orders, and anything that doesn't involve casual social interaction. But sit down and have a conversation with the guy and you'll discover his {{adorkable}} side pretty quickly. [[spoiler:He does get a HeelFaceTurn in the third season, but his dorkiness stays, meaning he goes from a NerdInEvilsHelmet to a DorkKnight.]]

** The episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft" has the boys fighting a {{griefer}} who keeps killing them in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' . He's an imposing foe in the game, but in real life... well, [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120211222860/southpark/images/0/05/Griefer.png just take a look at this picture.]]

* The fan-made ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' parody ''Episode III: A Lost Hope'' plays up Anakin Skywalker's whiny personality from the prequels. The first scene has Palpatine putting Darth Vader into his iconic armor, only to have Vader/Anakin immediately pull off the helmet and whine, "This helmet is totally chaffing my eyebrows! I swear!" Later, there is a fight between Vader and Mace Windu where Windu breaks Vader's prop lightsaber, to which Vader/Anakin whines, "You swing too hard! I swear!"
