* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The eunuch Lord Varys subverts this trope brilliantly. Really, when everyone already knows you're a eunuch, what the devil's the point of wasting time embarrassing yourself by trying to look butch? Mostly, though, it's an act. Raised by actors, he knows how to play the role properly to keep the Queen and her council guessing. Even MagnificentBastard Petyr Baelish doesn't quite know what he's up to. It's mostly an act-when he gets truly angry or serious he drops his usual polite, facetious tone and his voice becomes considerably lower, first seen when he delivers quite a hardass WhatTheHellHero to Ned Stark when trying to convince him to give a false confession and demands him to serve the realm, or when he threatens Tyrion in Season 2 and Littlefinger in Season 3.

* The Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}} version of ComicBook/{{Loki}} is a somewhat deconstruction of this. He actually became villainous ''because'' he was too ''sissy'' for Asgardian standards. Being a scrawny human sized ice giant living in a land that ranks brute force and power above intellect and magic, with [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor a brother]] who is the personification of the former is his FreudianExcuse.
** Loki's later incarnations have actually come out as bisexual and genderfluid, and have generally become more AntiHero than villain, underscoring this and supporting the idea that [[InternalizedCategorism internalized homo/biphobia and transphobia]] are also part of Loki's problem.
* ComicBook/CaptainKlutz's Sissyman is a fairly... blatant.. example.

There is a weird bit of irony to this, regardless of what the villain looks or acts like, EvilIsCool, and these villains will wreak just as much havoc as any other archetype. So, overexposure to this trope may lead kids to see this personality as badass in its own way, even leading boys to imitate their behaviour and mannerisms.

The Sissy Villain is probably the second most common portrayal of CampGay [[AcceptableTargets men]] (besides "one-dimensional joke character"), but is not necessarily synonymous with DepravedHomosexual. While Sissy Villains are frequently [[DepravedHomosexual gay]] or [[DepravedBisexual bisexual]], most of them are merely [[AmbiguouslyGay sexually ambiguous]] or [[{{Asexuality}} seemingly asexual]], and some of them are [[CampStraight straight]]. The Sissy Villain isn't intended to creep out the audience just because of the implication that he might like men (although this usually factors in), but because he acts like a "pansy."

real wimp.



As you can probably guess there are a few UnfortunateImplications surrounding this kind of character. First, portraying someone with characteristics commonly associated with homosexual men comes across as horribly homophobic. It also plays into the belief that [[ARealManIsAKiller men]] [[ManlyMenCanHunt must]] [[RatedMForManly be]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass manly]] regardless of any other characteristics.



Note: An AgentPeacock is considered Badass, even though you wouldn't expect it at first. A Sissy Villain emphasizes his viciousness through feminine behaviour. The tropes can overlap, especially when AgentPeacock is evil.
