* As an inversion, Beth Vandelinder of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' was rather perky and upbeat...until she became [[DepravedBisexual Melina Frost]]'s minion. [[RapeAsDrama Given the way Melina treated her, though, could you blame her?]]

* Both played straight and (knowing the game, deliberately) inverted with Undyne and King Asgore of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', Undyne being the [[BloodKnight severe and aggressive warrior]] to Asgore's [[TheGoodKing calm, genuinely sweet and caring role as the king]]. Also counts as a straight example, as Undyne is way more unhinged and zany compared to her boss, who's [[spoiler: [[WouldHurtAChild past deeds]] makes him feel like he should never be able to act lightheaded again, even if he wasn't actually the one to carry out the deed (which Undyne, apparently unflinchingly, carried out.)]]

A good way of applying the humor of TheComicallySerious to villains is by pairing them with the PerkyFemaleMinion. This character is something like the DistaffCounterpart[=/=]{{Foil}} to the EnigmaticMinion; they can range in psyche from PunchClockVillain to [[CuteAndPsycho fairly psychotic]], but have an upbeat, GenkiGirl personality in sharp contrast to the villain they serve who will be gloomy, AxCrazy, etc. If the female minion has a crush on the other villain, it will generally be of the MadLove variety, although this affection isn't a requirement, [[IgnoredEnamoredUnderling nor is its reciprocation]].

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' has Sonia, Griffith's New Band Of The Hawk's MissionControl who is also infatuated with her boss. Despite being always surrounded by horrible monsters - known as Apostles - she is always smiling and welcoming.

* Paula with Professor Nebulous in ''Radio/{{Nebulous}}'' - although Nebulous isn't evil, he's a humourless jerk of a MadScientist with a God-complex who once blew up the Isle of Wight because he wanted to move it to the right a bit. Despite this, Paula has an incredibly poorly-disguised infatuation with Nebulous, to the point that at one point, when Nebulous breaks his arm, Paula tries to kiss it better, prompting Nebulous to reply "Paula... that's my midriff".
** This is lampshaded with her surname - Breeze.

* Minordomo, assistant to Majordomo (who is Mojo's assistant himself) in ''ComicBook/XMen''. She's so [[GenkiGirl genki]] she suffers repeated ''heart attacks'' getting worked up over imagined disasters. Since she is also a robot, this typically just requires someone to hit her reset button, rather than having any lasting effect. This makes the two of them a SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl duo.

* [[InvertedTrope Despite being the hero]], Phoenix Wright of the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series and his cohorts seem to attract these like moths to a light.

* Yuuri in ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' is the perky, suck-up BrattyHalfPint in the first QuirkyMinibossSquad. She and all her teammates also fall under MadLove (except Mimi and Sheshe, [[MinionShipping who are involved with each other]]) but only Yuuri fits the Perky Female Minion description. Alala from the second arc plays the role of Perky Female Minion as well, though she isn't nearly as attached to her respective BigBad.
* [[{{Cyborg}} Sein and Wendi]] of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers]] in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers''. Their unprofessional personalities in a team [[SuperSoldier created to be war machines]] is given many a LampshadeHanging by the older cyborgs [[AllThereInTheManual in the manga chapter that featured them]].
** Fate's EvilKnockoff [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable Levi]] is loud, energetic and an airhead, in contrast to Nanoha's EvilKnockoff Stern who is calm, reversed and very intelligent. Though, Hayate's EvilKnockoff Dearche is even louder than Levi, Dearche isn't a minion, she's the king and always serious.

* An exception to the AlwaysFemale rule in ''{{Hellsing}}'''s Warrant Officer Schrödinger. For good measure, he's also a catboy. This being Hellsing though, he does occasionally exhibit a SlasherSmile.

* In ''PokemonSpecial'', Commander Mars of Team Galactic jumps up and down with joy and gets childishly excited at the thought of blowing up one of Sinnoh's lakes. In her first appearance, she also stops what she's doing to listen to one of Dia and Pearl's comedy routines.
