Added DiffLines:

* After Nappa is brought BackFromTheDead in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', he gives up the Saiyan lifestyle to become a Hollywood producer. He's no less of a jerk, though - in ''Dead Zone Abridged'' he swindles Krillin out of royalties, and a t-shirt ad shows posters for ''Film/{{Pixels}}'' and ''Film/FantasticFour2015'' outside his office, implying he produced them.

* Franz Bonaparta from ''Anime/{{Monster}}''.
** Hard to say, since, by the end of it, he was [[spoiler:depicted as something of an [[TheAtoner atoner]]]].
** Hartmann probably fits this description well...

-->'''Atomic Flounder:''' What?! Get off of me! If I weren't retired, I'd, I'd... [roars, releasing atomic energy at Barnacle Boy and leaving his head glowing red from radiation before it goes up in a miniature mushroom cloud, leaving it charred] ...do that.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': The Atomic Flounder was once one of Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy's arch-enemies. He's retired from committing acts of felony but is still as evil as he was before.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Eleventh Doctor's friend, Madame Vastra, a female Silurian who escaped suspension into VictorianBritain. When we see her, she's living happily with her [[InterspeciesRomance human lover/maid and eventual wife]]. Before that, though, she was apparently stalking the London Underground and [[ToServeMan eating the workmen]]. Even now, she hasn't entirely shaken off her fondness for human flesh, idly commenting on having eaten UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar "A Good Man Goes To War"]]

* Loki the God of Destruction (maybe... he is kinda crazy) in ''Fanfic/LokiAgentOfDoomgard'' invoked CrazyHomelessPeople, because he found it an easy way to go unrecognized and be left alone, as it's kind of hard to retire from being an evil god otherwise.

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', Slappy Squirrel is, herself, a RetiredBadass, and a lot of villains from her old cartoons are still around, the most prominent ones being Benny the Bison, Sid the Squid, and especially Walter Wolf. While technically retired, they still hatch an occasional plan to get even with her - often with disastrous and humiliating results. (For them.)

* Gig from ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters''. He once nearly destroyed the world. He wants a do-over, and this time, he'll spare nothing (except some hotpods, they're delicious). And he does not hide from the protagonists that this is his plan, or that taking advantage of his powers too much will release him, even though a little bit of deception would have him freed much quicker. And he's quite gung-ho about going off to kill Feinne, his former ally (though Feinne is far too powerful at this stage for them to succeed). And he'll chew you out for even suggesting he's not a bad guy. This gets played with a bit later when we find [[spoiler: he was actually BrainwashedAndCrazy and while he never reverts back to his original personality (in the Normal route at any rate) he does get enough CharacterDevelopment to pull off a HeroicSacrifice against the BigBad. And then RedemptionEqualsLife]].

* The german children's book "Mecki und die Sieben Zwerge" ("Mecki and the Seven Dwarves") has a literal one. Mecki, a hedgehog, is send by the seven dwarves to slay an evil dragon who, in a quite civilized conversation, turns out to be pretty evil but too old to go out and raid villages anymore. Well, he is still fit enough to easily kill Mecki if the latter would actually attack, so the hedgehog sets up a fight against a dragon puppet for the dwarves to witness. The dwarves fall for it. In a strange turn of events the dragon happens to witness the fight too - and dies from a shock-induced heart attack.
* ''SoonIWillBeInvincible'''s Baron Ether. He was the world's first supervillain, and he's committed every crime you can think of, now he's a wheel chair ridden mildly senile old man.
