These are characters who have no real grudge against the heroes, but [[JustFollowingOrders are simply doing a job]] they're [[IControlMyMinionsThrough getting paid for]]. After hours, they're [[AffablyEvil totally personable Joes]] who go hang out like anyone else. Most Punch Clock Villains are not even particularly mean. Even if they are, they see their job as a chore and care only for the reward and they couldn't care less for the plan itself.

Conversely if played ''seriously'', the emotional detachment that the Punch Clock Villain displays when he or she knowingly contributes to various atrocities can be chilling, and audiences may see them as a monster. Depending on the nature of the story this trope can make a villain either more relatable to an audience or more hateful. If they're employed in a violent capacity, they may be an ApologeticAttacker or insist that it's NothingPersonal.
