** Yes, his ''wealth'' is the reason why it's strange that [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy James]] doesn't laugh like this.
** A one-shot opponent of Ash's in the Pokémon League tournament - Jeanette Fisher, a girl rich enough to have an entire cheer section also had this laugh while thrashing Ash with a [[WaifFu Bellsprout]].

* 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.

* As voiced by Mr. Ryusei Nakao in the original dub of ''Manga/DragonBall Z'', merciless despot Freeza exhibits a formidable Noblewoman's Laugh which, when combined with his general politeness and his tendency to use feminine pronouns in Japanese, is meant to make "him" sound disturbingly like an actual noblewoman..

[[RealLifeWritesThePlot Cesar Romero actually laughed in a rather effeminate manner whenever he found something amusing]], and he was encouraged to incorporate that laugh into his Joker characterization.)

* 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.

** One episode of the ''Black and White'' series features three snobby rich girls who are prone to laughing like this. When Iris masquerades in a fancy dress and beats them at their own game, she laughs in the exact same way to top off her successful revenge scheme.

** Naga's laugh is apparently so destructive that it's used as her ultimate attack in the ''MagicalBattleArena'' doujin game. That's right, it's on the same level as Dragon Slave and [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Starlight Breaker]].
