Because most female antagonists antagonists, in action films at least, are portrayed as either [[FemmeFatale attractive]] or [[TheBaroness tough and aggressive]], the instances of female Slimeballs are extremely rare.
rare. Since attitudes change and the roles of women in stories become much more versatile and diverse, this also changes.

You're not even interesting enough to make me sick.

* [[LouisCypher Daryl Van Horn]] in ''Film/TheWitchesOfEastWick'' comes off this way to Alexandra when they first meet. He spouts off crass opinions and vulgar jokes at her over lunch, then invites her to his mansion and propositions her for sex on the spot. She gives him such a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech dressing down]] that it would annihilate the soul of any ordinary man. Unfortunately, Daryl is [[DevilInDisguise no ordinary man]] and he doesn't even notice; his next question is what sexual position she prefers.

The average Slimeball is usually not competent enough to handle the reigns of power on his own, should he find himself in a position of real authority - he often becomes DrunkWithPower while being a GeneralFailure or PointyHairedBoss; but if a group of Slimeballs have banded together to share power, then they become a DecadentCourt.

The average Slimeball is usually not competent enough to handle the reigns of power on his own, should he find himself in a position of real authority - he often becomes DrunkWithPower while being and embraces the role of CorruptBureaucrat. Depending on his position, he will usually be a GeneralFailure or PointyHairedBoss; but if a group of Slimeballs have banded together to share power, then they become a DecadentCourt.

* Peter [[MeaningfulName Pettigrew]] from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is one. Being TheLoad to his friends at school, he only gravitated around them because they were "the biggest bully on the playground". His Animagus form is a [[YouDirtyRat a rat]]. It is revealed that he [[spoiler: betrayed the Potters to Voldemort]] out of [[DirtyCoward fear]]. In an ironic twist, he once called Severus Snape this trope.

* The school guidance counselor in ''Film/PumpUpTheVolume'' make the enormous effort to convince students that he is looking out for their interests while really being the school principal's lackey, assisting her in expelling all the undesirables. The film's protagonist "Hard Harry" even describes him as "slime" on his pirate radio signal for so deeply betraying the students who came to him for help.

* Likewise, ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' features Benny, the leader of the Chairmen gang of New Vegas. He is the SmugSnake first and foremost, but what makes him truly slimy is [[spoiler: that as a female protagonist, you can seduce and sleep with him towards the end of the game, and this is ''after'' he shot and buried you at the beginning! Benny is so enthusiastic about getting laid that only once does he consider that you might be trying to get close to him to take revenge, and all it takes is your assurance to the contrary to [[TooDumbToLive persuade him otherwise]]]].

* House Frey in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Even before the infamous [[spoiler:Red Wedding]], nobody else liked them. Walder Frey was a spoiled little brat since the age of four whom time has not improved one bit, and most of his family takes after him. They look the part too: Walder Frey has a weasel-like appearance that most of his family inherited.

** Depending on who you ask in-world, Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish comes across as a mostly benign one of these: sure, he's a [[SleazyPolitician bit of a sleaze]], but he ''is'' in the business of moneymaking, after all -- and, whorehouses ''are'' a predictably profitable money-spinner, so it just stands to reason he has his fingers in those pies, too. Besides, what he is in the corrupt, he more makes up for in the useful charm, right? [[spoiler: He's not benign. At all: just ask Jayne Poole and Sansa Stark. Both girls find out about his bad side in heart-breaking ways.]]
