** Mehendri Solon in "The Brain of Morbius" wears a lot of fancy jewellery, is hugely misogynistic, spends his time [[MadArtist making 'models' of striking male faces]] and appears to find the Doctor very attractive (attractive enough to want to [[OrganTheft steal his head]] for a horrible FrankensteinsMonster, at any rate), even flirting with him in some scenes as much as 1975 would allow. Note the models resemble Classical sculpture and Solon is the name of an ancient Greek politician.

* The ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent'' episode gives us Dr. Roger Stern, a prissy, cultured surgeon who is well aware that he's prissy and compensates by doing terrible things to women.



* Loki from Myth/NorseMythology fits this. Several incidents present him as unmanly (particularly when he was impregnated by a horse), and the contrast with the manly hero plays out in his relationship with Thor. However, pre-FaceHeelTurn by Loki, he and Thor are more like SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan / VitriolicBestBuds.

* The villain of German novel ''Der Eiskristall'' is an unusual variation - it is implied that he turned to evil partly because he was [[FreudianExcuse bullied]] about his [[{{Elfeminate}} feminine looks]]. While he is trying to assert his masculinity with extreme violence, he is not helping his case with the HoYay he has with one of the male protagonists. [[/folder]]

** Frieza. A petite, painstakingly polite alien with a color scheme of pink, purple, and white who happens to be [[AxCrazy the most evil villain in the Dragon Ball mythos.]] He is voiced by a woman with a raspy old lady voice in the English dub[[note]]Specifically the Funimation and Ocean dubs with Linda Young and Pauline Newstone respectively[[/note]] and complains about not wanting to break his nails during his fight with Goku. However, in the original Japanese [[VocalDissonance he has a]] [[EvilSoundsDeep deep voice]] and a masculine way of speaking. Friea's newest

Due to social stigmas against male femininity and "unmanliness", there's a strong tendency in fiction to assign effeminate traits to villains: flamboyant mannerisms, delicate voices, light builds, prissiness, [[APrettyBoyIndex femininely pretty]] looks, [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness grandiloquent]] [[BreakingLecture speeches]], [[GigglingVillain giggling]], [[WickedCultured love for poetry and opera]], [[ManOfWealthAndTaste impeccable fashion sense]] ([[CreepyCrossdresser not always in men's clothing]]), fondness for [[RightHandCat Persian cats]], etc. Evil, it seems, is swishier than a silk skirt.

Frequently, TheHero pitted against the Sissy Villain is an old-fashioned Manly Man (any [[RealMenWearPink feminine traits he has are merely there to underscore his masculinity]]) and making the villain "unmasculine" is intended to emphasize this. After all, [[BrokenAesop there's nothing manlier]] [[YouFailLogicForever than beating up a sissy]]. It doesn't even matter that [[AgentPeacock the limp-wristed villain is powerful]], he '''looks''' weak and homosexual and that's what matters.

This trope shows up mainly in Western works and those Japanese works aimed at a male audience; if the villain is presented as [[{{Bishounen}} certain kinds]] [[WhiteHairBlackHeart of swishy]], [[MisaimedFandom female fans]] are likely to declare him [[DracoInLeatherPants utterly fabulous]].

* The Marvel version of 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 a brother who is the personification of the former is his FreudianExcuse.

** In fact, in most Disney films you can tell if a villain is a Sissy Villain based on his eyelids. If they are heavy and almost purple you can be sure that's the intention. This is because their eyelids look like they have eye shadow on them to give the implication they're wearing make up. Disney seems to be quite fond of using this.

That, in Japanese mythology, cherry blossoms represents death, and in western mythology the scythe is the signature tool of the GrimReaper, so it might not be so strange that Marluxia, despite all the aforementioned sissyness, still manages to retain most of his manliness.

* The Chief Blue Meanie in WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine.
* ''StarWarsTheCloneWars''
''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' has Jabba the Hutt's uncle, Ziro, whose voice was allegedly based on Truman Capote's.



** Starscream moves up and down a Sliding Scale of Girlishness and Childishness depending on the series and translation, but is consistently [[strike: feminine]] bitchy. [[ShesAManInJapan Some have mistakenly made him a girl]], [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated some]] [[OppositeSexClone have given him a female clone]], some have made him an outright giggling fool and some have even made him a somewhat serious air commander... with a childish attitude and a girlfriend to complain to about how his lord and master mistreats him. Expect every incarnation to be a narrow-waisted, whiny, flighty asshole prone to [[TheStarscream backstabbing]] his lord and master for insults and ambition. WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime is one of the most extreme examples, where Starscream is given an ''extremely'' feminine body shape and CombatStilettos.
** WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime gives us Knock Out, a metrosexual Decepticon who puts great concern with his vehicle form. WatchThePaintJob. Seriously, [[BerserkButton don't scratch his paint job,]] [[ChainsawGood he has a giant buzz-saw.]] (He's still much more masculine looking than Starscream, though.)

** The original Cobra Commander and the original Starscream were voiced by the same actor, Chris Latta. CC and Screamer obviously partnered in ''GIJoe[=/=]{{Transformers}}'' crossovers, comic and cartoon. Chris Latta himself was a bit bitchy and ended up being fired for all the trouble he caused the studio.

** In one unfairly-maligned episode of "Dial M for Monkey", the [[ComicBook/SilverSurfer Silver Spooner]] is an effeminate expy, who is ultimately defeated by [[spoiler:distracting him with a claim that Judy Garland is present, allowing Monkey to hit him over the head with his own spoon]].
* Downplayed by Ares in the DCAnimatedUniverse. Although he's very much a PrettyBoy, he's all about war, weapons, and destruction.

* Depending on the actor, Herbert in ''TanzDerVampire''. He's ''definitely'' at least bisexual, and ''is'' a vampire, but with time the show as a whole has been presenting him more and more sympathetically. (Some productions even hint that he'd be a better partner for the hero than the damsel-in-distress the hero's trying to rescue!)

Added DiffLines:

* Sebastian Valmont in ''Film/CruelIntentions''. Not gay, certainly, but soft-voiced and [[{{Wangst}} whiny]]. The clincher? His stepsister promises him that if he succeeds in an evil task she's giving him, ''she'll'' fuck ''him''.

* Jean Girard from ''Film/TalladegaNightsTheBalladOfRickyBobby'' is a comedy version of this trope. He even talks about his husband. And he raises horses - who are also gay.

However, [[ManlyGay subverted]] in that he's the best racer on the circuit for a time - and he puts Ricky in a humiliating arm lock in order to force him to admit that French ''crepes'' are delicious.
