Tends to be [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed based on one or more real-life dictators,]] most commonly UsefulNotes/ChiangKaiShek, UsefulNotes/AugustoPinochet, UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini, UsefulNotes/HidekiTojo, UsefulNotes/FranciscoFranco, [[Literature/TheFeastOfTheGoat Rafael Trujillo]], UsefulNotes/JosefStalin, UsefulNotes/FidelCastro, UsefulNotes/MaoZedong, UsefulNotes/IdiAmin, UsefulNotes/MuammarGaddafi and UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein. This is often used to make an {{Anvilicious}} point about [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical said real-life dictator's policies]]. [[GodwinsLaw Surprisingly]], UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler is rarely parodied in this manner, perhaps because the man himself is enough of an [[AcceptableTargets acceptable target]] (although one of his henchmen, Hermann Goering, did famously dress this way).
