** Tamatoa the giant crab from ''Disney/{{Moana}}''. He is vain, shallow, and campy with effeminate mannerisms and a voice like DavidBowie.

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]] [[BreakThemByTalking speeches]], {{giggling|Villain}}, [[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.

* In ''Bollywood/BombayVelvet'', Kaizad Khambatta is married, but uses his wife for honey-trapping his enemies, and seems to prefer the company of other men and seems very jealous of Johnny's romance with Rosie.



* 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]]

* Prince Edward in ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'', a foppish, homosexual weakling who cares more about new clothes and playing with his boy toy than conquering Scotland. (His RealLife analogue, Edward II, was gay in real life, but not an example: besides the problems with calling real people villains, the real Edward II was interested in traditionally manly, outdoorsy pastimes like sports and, unusually given his station in life, manual labor.) The main villain, Longshanks, is a manly man.

** Angelo Sauper of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'' is a full-on CampGay with a purple mobile suit and a [[{{Jerkass}} mean streak]] [[DepravedHomosexual at least a full colony wide]], but this doesn't stop him from being [[BigBad his beloved boss']] [[TheDragon right hand]] and [[VillainousValor one of the best]] [[BadassGay pilots in the series]].

* Yuda from ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''. While his large harem seems to imply he's staight, he's nonetheless obsessed with his own physical perfection, to the point of being worried about scars in battle. This makes him look even more cowardly and twisted. In one of the most "manly" anime series, the master of [[FantasticFightingStyle Red Crane Nanto]] is obviously depicted as everything a proud warrior should not be. Moreover he weirdly shows his "admiration" for Rei and uses a very heavy make-up,but he's still a fighter, so he's quite muscular, as anyone there besides casual oppressed peasants/children.
