** If you collect the specified vanity pets you can get Mr. Bigglesworth as a pet for yourself! For pet battles he is classified as an undead creature, but with a mix of undead, elemental and beastly attacks.

Nekozawa is a lot nicer than his obsession with black magic and creepy subjects would lead you to initially believe, though.

In an [[EvilCounterpart evil contrast]] to how much HeroesLoveDogs, [[DiabolicalMastermind Diabolical Masterminds]] are cat people. If they [[TheFaceless don't have a face]], they will always have a pet cat, usually some shade of white, sitting on their desk or in their lap, that they stroke as they describe their EvilPlan.

In real life, this is almost entirely untrue. Famous cat ''haters'' throughout history have included Caligula, Nero, Bonaparte, Hitler, and Stalin. Oddly, [[PetTheDog all of the above were fond of dogs]], perhaps because of their [[YesMan obedient, worshipful nature]]. (Alternately, for a psychopath terrified of assassination, a [[RightHandAttackDog German Shepherd]] is a little more comforting than a tabby.)

* Subverted on ''Series/GameOfThrones'' as Tommen Baratheon --who loves cats and has a cat as pet named Sir Pounce-- becomes King. Whether he would be as cruel as most other kings in the setting, we won't know [[spoiler:as he kills himself in season six]]. Also averted with his older brother, predecessor and probably one of the cruelest characters on the series Joffrey, as he actually hated cats and found pleasure torturing them.
