* [[http://creativity-online.com/work/spectrum-train/51537 This hilarious commercial]] from Spectrum features TheGrimReaper, the Wolfman, the Mummy, and a MadScientist commuting to work much like any commuters do, nonchalantly talking about their villainous ''and'' non-villainous plans. For instance, the Mummy talks about summoning the Apocalypse right after taking his twin sons to soccer, while the Reaper complains about his cable TV going out.

Similar to a GilliganCut with an AffablyEvil or {{Punch Clock|Villain}} villain as the Gilligan, Villains Out Shopping is a humorous cut to the villain doing or enjoying a perfectly mundane hobby unrelated to [[ToThePain torture]] or [[EvilFeelsGood being evil]] in general. Occasionally, the hero will join in and go GoKartingWithBowser, and they generally won't attack villains during such activities, if only due to the market being a TruceZone.

Generally used to humanize the villain. Don't expect the CompleteMonster to do this, other than perhaps to try to subvert it.

However even the CompleteMonster can do this without subverting it, since they can have also harmless interests and know how to do this, other than perhaps to try to subvert it.

* In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', when not raining plagues and disease on the mortal realms, Father Nurgle enjoys tending his garden. It's a garden devoted entirely to ''disease'', but hey! It's just a garden by another name, right? Nurgle is generally depicted as a kind and generous grandfatherly figure who likes spreading his presents.

A similar situation is one where the hero has mistakenly concluded that one of the usual villains has committed a crime, [[NotMeThisTime when really, it was a different one.]] The hero will knock down the villain's door to discover...them trying on [[DracoInLeatherPants leather pants]]. Like we said, a crime. (Unless it's David Bowie wearing them.)

* One piece of Kickstarter material for ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' had [[DirectLineToTheAuthor Jenna Moran]] meet [[TheGrimReaper the Headmaster of the Bleak Academy]] while he was doing his laundry in Fortitude. Apparently the students at the Bleak Academy can forge Abhorrent weapons, monsters and all varieties of dark magic, but can't build a washing machine or brew detergent.
