**Sephiroth from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is a partial example, having an OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous appearance, menacing and manipulating young men and being very obsessed with his mother - but he isn't particularly camp, and is regarded in universe as a masculine paragon.



**''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' gives us Ardyn, a grandiloquent, camp, flashily-dressed, magenta-haired middle-aged man who is worryingly fixated on a bunch of handsome young men in their early 20s. Noctis even regards him in-universe as a creepy old man at first.



* Genesis from ''VideoGame/CrisisCore''. Flamboyant hand gestures? Check. Campy {{Bishonen}} appearance? Check. [[MostAnnoyingSound Endless recital of pretentious poetry]]? ''Oh yeah''.

* Mr. Ho, TheDragon from ''Film/ReturnOfTheDragon'', is quite effeminate, especially when he feels Tang Lung's stomach and says, "Ohhhh, what rippling muscles!"

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam'': Ginias Sahalin fits this trope to a T. Ascots? Check. Fruity wardrobe in general? Check. Sexual ambiguity? Check (he's one of the series' only characters who doesn't have at least implied heterosexual preferences). [[Creator/ShowHayami A seiyuu known for voicing numerous well-known BL characters]]? Check.

* Somewhat frequent for various ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' villains:
** M'Quve of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' is a male RichBitch who speaks with a snooty accent, wears an ascot, has incredibly swishy wrists, minces when he walks, and generally effects the mannerisms of an eighteenth-century aristocrat. He's also a cold-blooded strategist, and [[UndyingLoyalty utterly loyal]] to his [[LadyAndKnight lady]], [[EvilGenius Kycilia]] [[LadyOfWar Zabi]].

** Most of the Innovators of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' combine this with AmbiguousGender and FashionVictimVillain.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The eunuch Lord Varys subverts this trope brilliantly. 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Masami Eiri in ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'', in addition to a unisex name, has long hair and a slightly feminine face, and during his first confrontation with the eponymous character, talks in feminine speech. A rare case of this actually making him ''more'' intimidating, especially hearing it in his [[EvilSoundsDeep deep, masculine voice]].

Added DiffLines:

* In Abel Gance's biopic of ''[[UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte Napoleon]]'', Gance himself steals the show as Louis Antoine de Saint-Just. Foppish and effete in his dangling earrings, and described as the most feared man in the French Revolution other authors have called him the Terror's "Angel of Death".

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.

Sissy Villains show up frequently in anime, where they often have [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white hair]]. Two common subtropes ared CreepyCrossdresser and EunuchsAreEvil. See also FashionVictimVillain, GorgeousGeorge, DepravedHomosexual, DepravedBisexual, and PsychoLesbian. May sometimes overlap with [[HeManWomanHater misogynistic]] [[StrawMisogynist views]] in the context of the EffeminateMisogynisticGuy. Contrast with RealMenWearPink, and occasionally, EvilSoundsDeep. When his ambiguous (nor not so ambiguous) sexuality is played for laughs, that's QueerPeopleAreFunny. Not to be confused with NonActionBigBad, although they can overlap. If the villain in question is either {{Satan}} himself, or one of his minions, he's a FlamingDevil.

* Suzu from the ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'' manga becomes this, after going [[AxCrazy mad]]. He starts wearing nail polish and makeup, has the best fashion sense of all the characters, has flamboyant mannerisms and prissyness, [[GigglingVillain giggles creepily]], and has an extremely [[{{Bishonen}} effeminate appearance]]. Oh, and he has a great fondness for [[RightHandCat exotic cats]].

* 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 [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor a brother]] who is the personification of the former is his FreudianExcuse.

* 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.

* Roger from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is this trope. While not consistently villianous, he can frequently be found at the root of problems for the main characters, seeming to enjoy stirring up trouble, and other peoples' misery.

** In the televised version of "Invasion of the Dinosaurs" by Malcolm Hulke, Professor Whitaker is a fairly standard MadScientist, but he gets [[AdaptationalSexuality adapted into this]] in the Target novelisation - he {{Squee}}s over Oscar Wilde and Noel Coward, giggles 'girlishly', admires the Doctor's physique, and so on.
** The Cybermen are this from "Revenge of the Cybermen" onwards until the end of the Classic series - once emotionless robots now portrayed with limp wrists, lisping voices and hilariously horrible amounts of mincing. Not helped by the tight silver bodysuits and the Doctor pointing out they get killed with 'glitterguns' - a bit {{Disco}} even by the standards of an episode from 1974.
** Mehendri Solon in "The Brain of Morbius" wears a lot of fancy jewelry, 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.
** Mad gardener Harrison Chase in "The Seeds of Doom" is camp, fay, fastidious, WickedCultured, wears fashionable clothes and black leather gloves and 'could play all day in [his] green cathedral'. He also ties men down, forcibly converts them into plants, and then brings them plant food (chunks of raw meat) to eat while they're in bed.

* [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Ash Crimson]] easily falls under this trope with his flamboyant personality, flirtatious nature towards the male characters and his feminine looks. Well, at least until his [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]] in King of Fighters XIII.
