* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse Of Chalion]]'', libertine Dondo dy Jironal sets out to become influential with Teidez, the heir to the throne, via alcohol, carousing, and so on. When Dondo dies, his brother Martou, the BigBad, has some trouble dealing with Teidez, due in part to Martou's UsefulNotes/StraightEdge tendencies.

--> '''Mayor''': ''[addressing his gathered vampire henchmen]'' Remember, fast and brutal. It's gonna be a whole new world come nightfall, don't want to weaken now. Oh, and boys? Let's watch the swearing.

This trope is very much TruthInTelevision. Abstinence, self-discipline and orderly living can make a saint, but it can just as well make a monster. Any RealLife examples are therefore redundant.

** Quite a lot of Pratchett's villains of the "smug authoritarian bureaucrat" type are this. As well as the most glaring example above, they also include Trymon in ''The Light Fantastic'', Wonse in ''Guards! Guards!'', and Captain Swing in ''Night Watch''. And then there's Nuggan, who is more or less the god of being SmugStraightEdge.

His worshippers are forbidden from eating garlic, mushrooms and chocolate, which even [[JerkassGods the other gods]] think is a bit much.

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' villain Ammonia Pyne is a NeatFreak almost to a fault, going so far as to use cleaning themed weapons (which she is still compelled to clean with); she's still pretty evil.

* [[spoiler: Angela]] of ''Film/SleepawayCamp'' becomes this by [[Film/SleepawayCampIIUnhappyCampers the second film]] in the series, as a result of failed attempts to cure [[spoiler:"her"]] after [[spoiler:"she"]] went on a rampage due to being bullied at camp. It has to do with [[spoiler:"her"]] learning to hate "bad campers", but somehow not realising that the worst kind of camper is one who murders the other campers....
* Zigzagged in ''Film/AmericanHistoryX''. While Derek initially dislikes drugs for their association with minorities and his self-righteous belief that drug use is somehow beneath the dignity of his race, it's his dislike of the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang for its (perceived) hypocrisy and involvement with drugs that starts him on the path to his HeelFaceTurn.

** Mello counts as well, if one considers him to be evil. He is a highly organized mob boss who, unlike other members of his gang, never indulges in any substance other than chocolate.

* This is the party line of Caesar's Legion in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', which officially forbids alcohol, chems, and general "profligacy." Subverted in the case of the high-ranking Aurelius of Phoenix, whose office contains items like beer, lingerie, and "[[ImAHumanitarian strange meat]]", though they might be confiscated goods.
