* ''Film/WildWildWest'': Dr. Loveless is a pretty hammy villain much of the time, but there's a hilarious moment after Artemus has been captured and is about to be shot. He's fortunately [[BulletProofVest wearing body armor]] and demands that he be shot "...in the heart that loves this country so much." Loveless's response? "Shoot him in the head."

* ''Film/AustinPowers'': [[OverlordJr Scott Evil]] is outraged by his daddy [[BigBad Dr. Evil]]'s dogged insistence on BondVillainStupidity by [[NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine having dinner]] with his arch-enemy Austin Powers and deciding to place him in an easily escapable DeathTrap. Scott offers to [[StatingTheSimpleSolution just shoot the super-spy]] and be done with it, but Dr. Evil simply ignores him.
-->'''Dr. Evil:''' Scott.. you just don't get it.

* King Sombra in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is TheSilentBob, wastes no chances to GemstoneAssault the Crystal Empire, [[spoiler:hid the Crystal Heart behind traps years ago, and rushes Spike upon seeing him with the Heart]]. Suitably, his episode(s) treat(s) him as an AdvancingWallOfDoom, putting our heroes in a RaceAgainstTheClock.

See also KilledMidSentence. Compare ShutUpKirk and ArentYouGoingToRavishMe as well as PragmaticVillainy, which an evil NoNonsenseNemesis will certainly display. Contrast ComplexityAddiction, JustToyingWithThem, TooDumbToLive, and FairPlayVillain.

** Azula opts to deliver a mortal blow to Aang while the latter in the Avatar state, which would have had the effect of permanently ending the Avatar cycle, had Katara not revived him. And majorly averting TransformationIsAFreeAction in the process.

* Though you have to do a [[KillEmAll No Mercy run]] in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' in order for him to finally [[ThePrankster drop the nonsense]] and [[LetsGetDangerous become your nemesis]], [[spoiler: Sans the Skeleton]] proves with the first attack that he's more than capable of fucking up your day. And, no, it's not just "his" first attack, it's "the" first attack: While you have the first move in all other battles, he is so "no-nonsense" he doesn't care about ''[[SNKBoss the conventions of the game itself]]''; once he's decided that you're going down he'll do things no other enemy in the game has ever done before just to get the job done. These things range from [[NonchalantDodge dodging]] [[MarathonBoss all of your attacks]] and attacking you while you're still navigating the combat menu to {{Smash Cut}}ting you into various attack patterns and swarming you with extremely difficult-to-dodge attacks that do not only deal lots of damage on top of leaving you with the [[DamageOverTime Karmic Retribution]] status effect, but also do not trigger your MercyInvincibility upon hit... After surviving his AlphaStrike, however many tries ''that'' might take you, the combat menu's interface perfectly sums up your situation for you:

* Lord Business from ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'' indulges in hamminess and other staples of being a CardCarryingVillain, but when he has to get personally involved he does not play around. He decapitates Vitruvius with a penny while the latter is giving Emmett a rousing speech, pitches the Piece of Resistance out a window into a black hole instead of leaving it somewhere for the heroes to recover, and when Emmett ''does'' recover the Piece Lord Business shoots him with the Kragle before he can get anywhere close to disarming it.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Cinder. During every fight she's in, she almost stops to mess around or banter with her opponent, either neutralizing threats or defending herself as quickly as possible; the only time she doesn't take a fight absolutely seriously is when she's up against Atlesian soldiers who are completely helpless against her. At the end of Volume 3, when she fights [[spoiler: Pyrrha]], she spends the entire battle using as little energy as possible and fighting very efficiently. While she has the upper hand, she isn't exposing herself to any surprises or leaving herself vulnerable. It isn't until ''after'' she [[spoiler: cripples Pyrrha with a shot to the ankle]] that she says anything at all, and then immediately afterward [[spoiler: she shoots Pyrrha in the heart and incinerates her body.]]

* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' largely has a lightness of tone and several hammy super-villain, but it's BigBad, Lord Recluse, is the Big Bad for a very good reason. Aside from being your standard EvilGenius, to MagnificentBastard levels, he is also DangerouslyGenreSavvy. The game's large array of scene-chewing villains, tossing around the VillainBall, are all just an opening act. If you make it passed them to the point where he actually needs to tend to issues in-person he will crush said villain ball beneath his heels. No banter, no mercy, no alternate victory conditions and a mind that can calculate entire battle scenarios in seconds.
