Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail: Fievel Goes West'': Cat R. Waul is a cultured, well mannered "gentlecat" who lures New York mice out west in order to turn them all into "mouseburgers", because simply chasing and eating them is an "unnecessary expenditure of calories".

* Crocodile from ''OnePiece''. Drinks wine while the Straw Hats are imprisoned (in addition to a NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine scene with Vivi), names his criminal organization after Renaissance architecture, and dresses in a fashion akin to a mafia ringleader.

* Solf J. Kimblee of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' has got this down pat. Immaculate white suit? Check. Nice, calming voice? Check. An interest in the alchemical arts, as well as a seeming passion for music? Chack. [[BloodKnight Oh, and he's a psychopath]] [[MadBomber who has made it his life's work to blow up anything and everything for the heck of it.]] [[WhyAmITicking And he can turn people into living bombs.]]

* In ''Fanfic/OldWest'', the snake-hunter for hire Mon Hellsing often quotes [[Literature/TheBible the Bible]] to show his [[FantasticRacism disdain toward snakes]], naming exactly the sections he's quoting.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/NightfallSeries'': Prince Vladimir. He is the BigBad and a monster, but he is also extremely knowledgeable about and appreciative of history, languages, science, mythology, music, theatre, and literature. [[spoiler: He used to be a writer himself, but lost his ability when he became a vampire.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The Boss him/herself is a ruthless gang leader who is also big fan of Creator/JaneAusten, though this seems to be the only bit of culture in their life as they don't know one bit about anything listed above. Zinyak is an Austen fan as well, [[spoiler:so much so that he used time travel to abduct her for his personal collection]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'', [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Norlock]] puts on airs of this, with the fine suit he always wears, and his insistence on always acting as [[FauxAffablyEvil melodramatically polite]] as possible.

* Klytus from the 1980 ''Film/FlashGordon'' manages this by speaking in the arch, refined tones of Peter Wyngarde, and holding a hankerchief to his face during an execution.

* Subverted in ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}'', in which Mr. Croup affects SesquipedalianLoquaciousness and collects priceless Chinese porcelain... to eat. It turns out that he doesn't value high art so much as he relishes the opportunity to destroy it and leave the world culturally deprived as a result. His counterpart, Mr. Vandemar, is DumbMuscle.



** Odd variation in ''Discworld/TheTruth'': Mr Tulip has a [[HiddenDepths deep interest in art]], and is able to discuss it at length. [[GeniusDitz Apart from that]], he's DumbMuscle who'll [[BeatBag use anything as a drug]], and has a vocabulary reliant on the word "----ing". [[ThoseTwoBadGuys His partner]] Mr Pin is the smart one, but ''doesn't'' have the interest in culture.

** The Master tends to alternate between this and being a [[LargeHam crazed loon]] depending on the state of his health. The Roger Delgado incarnation was easily the most like this: dressing in nice suits, smoking cigars, [[WorthyOpponent regarding the Doctor as his intellectual equal and playing with him like a chess opponent]], reading [[Literature/WaroftheWorlds]], [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen fencing with the Doctor rather than fighting in a less sophisticated way]], [[EvilisSexy and even using his suave and charm to woo the affections of an ambitious woman in the Roman era]]. Then he lost most of this in his Peter Pratt incarnation due to his decaying body and desperate situation, and he hasn't been quite the same since. However, the Anthony Ainley, John Simm, and Michelle Gomez incarnations have still shown signs of being sophisticated and cultured whenever they're not being totally over-the-top. Even Eric Roberts' Master showed signs of sophistication when he [[ChewingtheScenery DREZZZED FOR THE OCCASION]].
