* Ursula the Sea Witch from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''--though many female Disney villains have this kind of laugh (and some male ones too), few are more rich and booming than hers. It's especially noticeable in a deleted version of her VillainSong.
-->'''Ursula:''' So I think you ought to take my little bargain\\
Yes I think you ought to make my little deal\\
Sure it's hard to leave your life, but you could be a prince's wife\\
Why don't you let me take that dream and make it real?\\
Oh oh oh HO HO ''HOHOHOHOHO!!!''

* In ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'', Shizuka briefly goes through a {{Yandere}} period, marked by pseudo-[[ImagineSpot Imagine Spots]] where she has devil horns, a pitchfork, and does the laugh as she attempts to break up Wataru and Mio.
** It gets weirder (and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funnier]]) later on when she realizes that Mio does honestly love Wataru and tries to patch them up. Afterwards she muses that maybe her true role is to be Wataru's surrogate mother, followed by an ImagineSpot of her as an angel...''still'' doing the laugh.

* In the Japanese incarnations of the ''SonicTheHedgehog'' shows and games (especially the more recent of each), the MadScientist BigBad Dr. Eggman gained a laugh rather like a Noblewoman's Laugh consisting of a long "OH" followed by a varying number of "HO"'s to increase comedic value. It is one of Eggman's most memorable traits in Japan but almost ''never'' heard in American dubbing.
