* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' villain Mr. Sinister is known for his unethical genetic practices and his [[StalkerWithATestTube somewhat disturbing obsession with the Summers family]]. However, few people know his original intended origin: he was a young rival of Cyclops who couldn't age. By the time Cyclops was an adult, Kid Sinister was still stuck as an 8-year-old (physically and mentally), and he used his mutant powers to change his appearance into that of a gaudy, over-the-top supervillain: an 8-year-old's vision of a cool supervillain. When considering that origin, Mr. Sinister's corny appearance, unimpressive name, and stereotypical supervillain demeanor actually make sense. But, ThePowersThatBe decided not to go with that origin... It also explains his minions: The Nasty Boys (a name an 8-year-old would be ''far'' more likely to pick than a mad geneticist) earn their name by being filthy ultra-slobs, living in conditions akin to the ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' version of the Brotherhood. In other words, they never take baths or clean their space -- part of an 8-year-old's idea of perfect freedom. In the canon version, one has to presume that the Nasty Boys named themselves rather than being named by Sinister, and that he just uses them as minions because it would be no great loss if they get killed.

** PlayedWith with SadistTeacher Severus Snape. In "Order of the Phoenix", we get to see that Severus Snape did indeed often get humiliated by Harry's father, James Potter back when they were schoolboys, something which Harry didn't take well. On the other hand, Snape gave as well as he got, hence why the two very much hate each other.

Sometimes, but not always, these types of characters are accompanied by the same people they were [[VillainousFriendship friends]] with when they were younger. If this is the case, these friends will likely take the role of TheDragon.
