* In ''Magazine/HeavyMetal [[ComicBook/JudgeDredd Dredd]]'', a wannabe criminal tries to make a name for himself by being the one person who's bad enough to kill Judge Dredd. Obviously, since this is Dredd we're talking about, this turns into an EpicFail. Doesn't stop him from trying at least two more times with similar results.

->''"You compare this insignificant nothing to Zarbon and Dodoria? Was that a joke? Ha! Either you brought the most cowardly of all my troops to my welcoming party, or the Frieza Force has become woefully faint of heart. How do you expect us to run an empire that strikes fear across the galaxies while we're cowering from a handful of Saiyan garbage?!"''

* In ''Liberature/InterviewingLeather'', the titular villainess describes two different types of crime she commits. To enhance her VillainCred, she does loud flashy attacks in which she rants, breaks things, terrorizes the citizens, dares the local superheroes to try and stop her, etc. To [[OffscreenVillainDarkMatter pay the bills]], she leads her henchmen in quiet efficient robberies that draw far less attention (unless something goes wrong).

* The ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' "The Man Who Killed Batman" provides us with one-time character Sid 'The Squid', a small time crook who wished to gain some cred as a big shot... And succeeded when he got in a scuffle with Batman and, completely by accident, ''apparently killed him''. Then it's {{Deconstructed}}. As the real life saying goes, "[[ThePerilsOfBeingTheBest when you're king of the hill, everyone else wants to knock you off]]". First, he becomes a target for another crook looking to earn cred for himself by taking down the guy who killed Batman. Then, he's kidnapped by The Joker, who [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=Ld0uIhst3TA tries to kill Sid]] for [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou depriving him of the chance to kill Batman himself]]. Finally, when he goes to [[TheDon Rupert Thorne]] for help in getting away, Thorne decides that he's [[ObfuscatingStupidity putting on an act]] as part of an attempt to take over Thorne's drug racket. After all, if someone is tough enough bring down ''the Caped Crusader himself'' then why wouldn't Thorne see him as a rival? Of course, Batman was alive after all, [[HesJustHiding letting people think he was dead]] and keeping Sid alive through these misadventures in order to follow him and find out who was running the crime ring. In the end, Sid ''did'' get some prison cred as the man who ''nearly'' killed Batman and then proceeded to make fools of the Joker and Thorne.

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' has the Galactic Villain Leaderboard, which ranks who are considered the most powerful, evil, and important villains in the galaxy. Lord Hater originally had the top slot, but lost it thanks to Wander, though his position fluctuates throughout the series and he eventually does make it back to the top five. When [[KnightOfCerebus Lord Dominator shows up]], she very quickly skyrockets to the top and remains there until the series finale.
This list shows the last 10 events of 97. Show all.
