* The BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/HelpImAFish'' looks like ComicBook/TheJoker, is voiced by Creator/AlanRickman, and if it's all possible is even scarier and more psychotic than that sounds. His name? Joe.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' has Barry Dillon. He may not start out particularly villainous, but once he receives [[spoiler: [[WeCanRebuildHim a cyborg upgrade]]]], he certainly qualifies.

**The vicious (male) leader of the Irish Mob is named Franny Delaney.
**To a lesser extent, [[spoiler: Conway Stern]]. Good surname, but that first name doesn't inspire a lot of fear...
**And then, there's the ruthless hitman couple of... Charles and Rudy.

** Similarly, all three of the major villains in ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' have harmless-sounding names: [[AffablyEvil Susie]] and [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Max Haltmann,]] and [[spoiler: [[LightIsNotGood Star Dream.]]]] [[DarkerAndEdgier They are easily the darkest villains in the series.]]

* A less heroic ''Kirby'' example is in ''[[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Super Star]]'', where the final boss is named Mark. While this fits in that he was just another harmless puffball until he [[ManipulativeBastard manipulated his way to ultimate power]], it's still a bit hard to take seriously, so the localization [[DubNameChange changed it]] to Marx. This has been carried to ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack'' pinball mini game, which the official name translation for him is Marx even in Japanese version.

* The main villain of {{Videogame/Undertale}} refers to himself as Flowey the Flower. Kind of odd considering that [[spoiler:he probably came up with that himself, and the name of his original form is Asriel Dreemurr, which is much more intimidating aside from the fact that it's just a mash-up of his parent's names.]]

* In the ''{{Literature/Twilight}} Illustrated Guide,'' Alistair's back story involves his father [[DealWithTheDevil making a deal]] with the demon Asteroth. Ashteroth, however, was actually a vampire, not a demon, and his real name was George. He just likes to mess with people, apparently. Also, a lot of the villains have relatively normal names, like [[TheHunter James]], the BigBad of the first novel.
