A Spectacled Sadist[[hottip:*: In Japanese fan terminology, ''kichiku megane'', literally "brutal glasses"]] is a male love interest whose defining traits are that he is cold, cruel, and abusive to his romantic partner in a manner intended to be kinky and appealing to the audience, and that he wears glasses, which indicates that he is also smart, sophisticated, and successful.

This trope runs on FetishFuel, so don't expect anything close to a realistic depiction of abuse. This is purely a
fantasy of a strong, very desirable, dominant male who has (or wants) complete control over his partner, especially sexually, and the domination and [[AbusivelySexy emotional abuse is intended to be sexy]] (and usually [[RapeIsLove an expression of romantic feelings]]). Thus, if you are a good-looking male character who wears glasses, some fans will turn you into this, regardless of your personality.

The character type requires that the character be a possible love interest; if there's no hope that the opposite party will ever reciprocate, he's probably just a StalkerWithACrush or a {{Jerkass}}.

A Spectacled Sadist typically has a cool, sophisticated, or commanding way of speaking, an [[PsychoticSmirk evil little smile]], and an [[ManOfWealthAndTaste expensive suit]]. Expect lots of RapeIsLove or the PG-rated equivalent. They are popular in media directed at a [[ShoujoDemographic female]] [[BoysLoveGenre audience]].

The parent trope is BastardBoyfriend[[hottip:*:the "kichiku" part of ''kichiku megane'']]. See also EvilIsSexy and AllGirlsWantBadBoys, which are the foundations of this character. For calm, sweet guys with glasses, see StoicSpectacles. For nasties in glasses minus the kinky romance angle, see FourEyesZeroSoul. Occasionally exhibit ScaryShinyGlasses.

The Japanese version is also the name of a [[VisualNovel/KichikuMegane visual novel]].

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime & Manga]]
* Hideaki Nakajima in ''GakuenHeaven''. Although this was seriously toned down in the anime, the manga version followed the [[RapeIsLove spirit of the original game]] more closely.
* Michio Yuki, {{MW}}'s VillainProtagonist, torments his lover, Garai, quite extensively. It's debatable whether he's actually in love with Garai, however.
** And another triumphant example from OsamuTezuka's DarkerAndEdgier phase, Dr. Urabe from ''OdeToKirihito''. He is rather tortured and guilt-ridden about all the raping he did, though.
* TakehitoKoyasu plays these a lot. He was the voice for Jade Curtiss from ''TalesOfTheAbyss'', played one in the OtomeGame ''[[TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial: Girls' Side]]'', and was the first seiyuu for [[TokyoBabylon Seishirou Sakurazuka]].
** It should be noted that any discussion on Jade's sexuality will be {{fanon}} at best -- the game itself presents him as effectively {{asexual}}, with the exception of one ''very'' DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything round of (off-screen) JackBauerInterrogationTechnique with his UnknownRival that *sounds* like a round of RapeAsComedy.
* Ono-san in ''AntiqueBakery'', when in "predatory gay guy" mode. He's quite nice, otherwise.
* Parodied on ''KeroroGunsou'' with Kururu.
* Ryuji from ''VisualNovel/NightShiftNurses'' plays this straight.
* The StudentCouncilPresident of ''SuzumiyaHaruhi'' plays one solely to provide Haruhi with an "antagonist" to keep her from being bored.
** He ''may'' have started [[BecomingTheMask to become a straighter example]].
* [[{{Absurdly Powerful Student Council}} Class President]] [[{{Seme}} Yuichi Hajitsume]] from ''Scandalous Seiryo University'' is a standard-issue BL example, played for screwball comedy.
* Ryoki from ''HotGimmick'', especially early in the series.
* [[spoiler:Kurt Godel]] from ''[[MahouSenseiNegima Negima!]]'' seems to be shaping up to be this. His backstory [[spoiler:with Ala Rubra and his unrequited love for Princess Arika]] does nothing to explain his callous cruelty.
** OTOH, [[spoiler: it's later explained why he acts like this (it's...VERY complicated), and upon being defeated by Ala Alba, he has a HeelFaceTurn.]]
* Satoshi from ''[=~D.N.Angel~=]'' is very much like this trope when he's first introduced, although it's later revealed that he has a reason for being cold.
* Muraki in ''YamiNoMatsuei'': A CompleteMonster StalkerWithACrush who has a definite thing for Tsuzuki; unfortunately for Tsuzuki, his hobbies include rape, murder, and cutting people up while they're still alive, and Tsuzuki is willing to pull a TakingYouWithMe to get rid of him ([[spoiler:they both survive]]). He is, however, ''very'' pretty and sexy [[RedRightHand as long as he styles his hair correctly]], so there is much {{Fanfiction}} where he is this trope instead.
** Tatsumi certainly ''looks'' the part, although, in practice, he is actually a decent person (if quite the FrozenFlower). And since he cares a lot for Tsuzuki, Tatsumi is '''most''' unhappy about Muraki's little fixation with him.
* Another comedic BoysLove version: StudentCouncilPresident Azuma from ''Love Is Like A Hurricane'' expresses his affection for Mizuki by molesting him relentlessly.
* Extremely {{angst}}y and disturbing BoysLove version: Wakae from ''The Night's Dew On Those Lips'' (published in French as ''Réminiscences'') takes RapeIsLove to a [[UpToEleven whole new level]].
* Ritsu in ''{{Loveless}}'' proves to be one of these to a young Soubi, [[spoiler:sexually abusing him]] and generally being a dick because Soubi's mother married another man over him.
* Nawahara Bakurou from the H-Doujin ''Escape Creator''. Every girl that shows up with him ends up being tied, raped, and liking it, and returning for more in the last chapter.
* Ichinose Takumi from {{Nana}}.
* The final character design of Ogata from HikaruNoGo ''looks'' like one of these, especially when wearing the white suit he apparently uses for all formal occasions, and is, at best, a DeadpanSnarker. Since he gets obsessed with the lead's connection to 'Sai', the netgo star who's really a ghost playing through the kid, he also gets pedo vibes, and that's enough for large segments of the fandom to see him as this.
** He's actually visibly a very proud, ''deeply'' socially awkward, and highly selfish geeky guy in his thirties, whose personal life extends to his old sensei and his tropical fish, but as the only living, attractive, fully-adult male in the show, he became a bit of an MrFanservice piece, and the fans invoked this trope.
* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'': Toshiyuki Aoshima.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* [[ScottPilgrim Gideon Gordon Graves]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music]]
* {{Vocaloid}}'s Kagamine Len, though usually shota, sometimes gets this trope thrust upon him by the fandom. Probably has something to do with the PV(s) for his song SPICE!
[[/folder]]

[[folder:New Media]]
* [[http://utau.wikia.com/wiki/Ted_Kasane Kasane Ted]], [=UTAUloid=]'s [[http://utau.wikia.com/wiki/Teto_Kasane Teto Kasane]]'s male genderbend, is this to such an extent that he has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLIXRVAw0YU BDSM parody song of Meltdown]].
* WebOriginal/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses is usually made into this by the fandom. Hey, he's a [[DepravedBisexual Depraved]][[AnythingThatMoves Omnisexual]], he makes it ridiculously easy to do so.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The BoysLove game {{VisualNovel/Kichiku Megane}}, of course.
** The game is named after the Japanese trope name and specifically invokes it in the most literal sense possible: a clueless dork who can't get a date receives magic glasses that turn him into a commanding {{Seme}} who gets whatever he wants, especially [[RapeIsLove in bed]]. Check out [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oM76jE-KNK0 the trailer]] (slightly {{NSFW}}) to see them in action.
** While the main character, Katsuya, is the most prominent example, ''anyone'' who wears glasses in this series counts. Next best example is resident [[HornyDevils incubus]] Mr. R (who created the titular glasses) and, later, Sawamura, Katsuya's former childhood friend.
*** Also, it should be noted that the original game will punish you for crossing the MoralEventHorizon (it even has a very basic KarmaMeter), in some cases, by having the abused lover kill Katsuya. The sequel ''Kichiku Megane R'' drifts in the other direction, with the best endings for Megane!Katsuya being those where he softens up and [[LoveRedeems treats his lovers in a gentler manner]].
* SilverChaos2ArtificialMermaid feature Brad Hiruma, who is added even further by using test tube as...and [[spoiler:LoveRedeems]].
* Spray, the creators of ''GakuenHeaven'' and ''Kichiku Megane'', really love this trope. (Or, in these cases, scenario writer Tamami who wrote both games really loves it). It also appears in their other BoysLove games ''Piyotan'' and ''Steal.''
* Kristoph Gavin from ''ApolloJustice'', in lots and lots of fanfic. In {{Canon}}, he's [[spoiler: the BigBad]].

A We no longer have a trope called Spectacled Sadist[[hottip:*: In Japanese fan terminology, ''kichiku megane'', literally "brutal glasses"]] is a male love interest whose defining traits are that he is cold, cruel, and abusive to his romantic partner in a manner intended to Sadist. You may be kinky and appealing to looking for one of the audience, and that he wears glasses, which indicates that he is also smart, sophisticated, and successful.

This trope runs on FetishFuel, so don't expect anything close to
following:

* FourEyesZeroSoul - Showing
a realistic depiction of abuse. This is purely a
fantasy of a strong, very desirable, dominant male who has (or wants) complete control over his partner, especially sexually, and the domination and [[AbusivelySexy emotional abuse is intended to be sexy]] (and usually [[RapeIsLove an expression of romantic feelings]]). Thus, if you are a good-looking male
character who wears glasses, some fans will turn is cold, cruel or ruthless by giving them glasses.
* BespectacledBastardBoyfriend - An AbusivelySexy LoveInterest with SexySpectacles or StoicSpectacles.

If
you into this, regardless of your personality.

The character type requires that
came here from a wikilink, please go back and correct it to point to the character be a possible love interest; if there's no hope that the opposite party will ever reciprocate, he's probably just a StalkerWithACrush or a {{Jerkass}}.

A Spectacled Sadist typically has a cool, sophisticated, or commanding way of speaking, an [[PsychoticSmirk evil little smile]], and an [[ManOfWealthAndTaste expensive suit]]. Expect lots of RapeIsLove or the PG-rated equivalent. They are popular in media directed at a [[ShoujoDemographic female]] [[BoysLoveGenre audience]].

The parent trope is BastardBoyfriend[[hottip:*:the "kichiku" part of ''kichiku megane'']]. See
right trope. You may also EvilIsSexy and AllGirlsWantBadBoys, which are the foundations of this character. For calm, sweet guys with glasses, see StoicSpectacles. For nasties in glasses minus the kinky romance angle, see FourEyesZeroSoul. Occasionally exhibit ScaryShinyGlasses.

The character type requires that the character be a possible love interest; if there's no hope that the opposite party will ever reciprocate, he's probably just a {{stalker with a crush}} or a {{jerkass}}.

A Spectacled Sadist typically has a cool, sophisticated, or commanding way of speaking, an [[PsychoticSmirk evil little smile]], and an [[ManOfWealthAndTaste expensive suit]]. Expect lots of {{rape is love}} or the PG-rated equivalent. They are popular in media directed at a female audience.

The parent trope is BastardBoyfriend[[hottip:*:the "kichiku" part of ''kichiku megane'']]. See also EvilIsSexy and AllGirlsWantBadBoys, which are the foundations of this character. For calm, sweet guys with glasses, see StoicSpectacles. For nasties in glasses minus the kinky romance angle, see FourEyesZeroSoul. Related to ScaryShinyGlasses.
