* ''Film/PunisherWarZone'' sees crime boss Gaitano Cesare call some people "the ragheads in Queens" when he finds out that one of his goons, Billy Russoti, is shipping in a biological agent for a Russian crime boss. Once Russoti becomes the movie's main villain, Jigsaw, he himself uses the same exact term in dealing with the Russian crime boss when discussing where it's going.

* ''Film/RoboCop1987'' has Clarence Boddicker and his gang. Emil Antonowsky makes a joke about prison rape and Joe Cox calls Emil a homophobic slur twice. Boddicker himself expresses sexism (He infamously says to two hookers "Bitches, leave.") and later uses a racial slur against an Italian gangster.
* [=McDaggett=] in ''Film/RoboCop 3'' is not obviously racist, but still a SocialDarwinist ColonelKilgore who enjoys slaughtering the [[KillThePoor worthless gutter trash]] of Detroit to make room for Delta City.

* In ''ComicBook/WackyRaceland'', a DarkerAndEdgier ComicBookAdaptation of ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'', the Red Max ([[AdaptationNameChange renamed]] "The Red Baron") is depicted as a Nazi and also makes a homophobic remark toward Rufus Ruffcut as well as some transphobic statements toward Sergeant Blast (who is a male-to-female transsexual in this continuity).

* During Creator/KurtBusiek's ''[[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]'' story "Syndicate Rules" (dealing with the aftermath of ''ComicBook/JLAAvengers''), the Crime Syndicate's Johnny Quick twice displays racism. The first time, before the CSA's siege on Qward and Krona destroying the antimatter universe, Johnny Quick boasted about defeating a Chinese rebellion and was in the middle of calling the people "yellow" when Owlman started beating the crap out of him (as he'd been funding the rebellion to ultimately relieve the CSA's boredom). The second time, after the universe is restored with some changes, Quick called Power Ring, who was {{Race Lift}}ed into a John Stewart counterpart by what happened, "Black Power Ring", much to Power Ring's chagrin.

* On a lighter note, Spider-Woman once fought a guy named Turner D. Century, whose goal was to return society to the cultural values it had before World War I; in other words, he was both a bigot and a chauvinist. Despite his rather unethical outlook, as a villain, he's [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain regarded as a joke]] (if not the ''biggest'' joke in Marvel's history).

Among the fandom he is considered one of the ''biggest'' joke in Marvel's history).history and has a following because of it.

* ''Film/SlingBlade'' gives us Doyle Hargraves, the film's antagonist. He's a misogynist (he's a DomesticAbuser and treats Linda like a piece of ass most of the time), a ChildHater (Linda has a boy named Frank who he treats even worse than Linda), a homophobe (Linda's boss and best friend, Vaughan is gay, and he calls him "pussy", "fag", "cocksucker" and [Linda's] "girlfriend"), and ableist (the protagonist, Karl, is mentally retarded and one of his "friends" is wheelchair-bound, who he calls "cripple" and assaults him during a drunken meltdown). Doyle would probably be racist too, but there were no racial minority characters in the movie for him to insult.

* Whether he's presented as a violent AntiHero parody or a snarky bad guy, SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} is presented as misogynist and a pervert in the same way guys like Archie Bunker are, because it's funny and he's ''not'' the type of guy fans are supposed to emulate. He's made lewd comments to most of DC's power players and in one story, ripped Starfire's top off as "payment for services".

* Variant in ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', the BigBad of the first book is depicted as a homophobe just to bump up his villain credentials (despite the fact that this would have hardly made him unusual in the Victorian era). Likewise, in the third volume, the more misogynistic qualities of Franchise/JamesBond and the more reactionary qualities of Literature/BulldogDrummond are played up.
