* ''Series/{{Daredevil2015}}'' had some in the first season. The Second season was full of it. They have been called out, but it looks like the Hand aren't going anywhere right now.

Added DiffLines:

* The Chinese crime lord Soo Choy in ''Series/TheNewAvengers'' episode "Trap", who wears traditional Chinese robes and a Mandarin cap and generally comes across as a poor man's Fu Manchu. Not helped by being played by a Caucasian in obvious YellowFace.

** Then again, since ''none'' of the factions in BattleTech are outright "good guys," the Combine and Confederation can just as easily be seen as sympathetic, defending themselves from aggressive and (especially in the Capellan Confederation's case) larger enemies. There are also any number of Asian characters staunchly in the "good guy" camp, such as Justin Xiang Allard and his son, Kai Allard-Liao. On a meta level, BattleTech started off taking its cues from any number of Anime Mecha series, so has a vested interest in not portraying its Asian factions as wholly evil.

* The first album of ''De Avonturen van detective Van Zwam'', ''Het geheim van Matsuoka'', is all about a Japanese enterpreneur that creates a company that serves beer to people that turns them mad. Subverted because ''Marc Sleen'', the creator of the comic, thought that ''Matsuoka'' was the name of the ministry of foreign affairs during UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 .

* Richard Wong from ''PsychicForce''. Class S evil Chinese man who controls time and manipulates the NOA group under [[DarkMessiah Keith Evans]] to eventually take over the world for his plaything as a God. Predictably, he breaks out from NOA.

* The first of Edgar P. Jacobs' ''ComicBook/BlakeAndMortimer'' stories, ''Secret of the Swordfish'', pits the heroes against the world-conquering, Asian-supremacist [[TheEmpire "Yellow Empire"]]. However, the trope is subverted, as the primary villain in the story is the Caucasian Colonel Olrik and the BigBad, Emperor Basam Damdu, is less mysterious Oriental, and more Hitler-esque, megalomanic madman.
* ComicBook/RasAlGhul is explicitly modeled after this character type, essentially being a more Arabic-themed Fu Manchu with all of the trappings (beautiful daughter infatuated with the hero, vast criminal empire, supernatural elements). His creator, Denny O'Neil, commented that his face is meant to be an unidentifiable mixture of facial features so that he is neither Asian nor Arab(of course considering his tribe came from China he technically is Asian). He also has green or blue eyes (depending on the continuity) and in media tends to be [[RaceLift portrayed by white European actors]] (Creator/LiamNeeson, David Warner).

* The somewhat similar Yellow Claw in modern Marvel comics continuity (originally from 1956) still exists; however, the old coloring is lampshaded with a remark in the ''OfficialHandbookOfTheMarvelUniverse Deluxe Edition'' that "The Yellow Claw has a pale yellow skin color quite unlike the skin tones of other Orientals."
** It's also counterbalanced by the fact that his archenemy, FBI agent Jimmy Woo, is a typical [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] action hero who happens to be Chinese-American. This makes Woo one of Marvel's earliest heroes of color.

* A few particularly [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?view=article&catid=34%3Asuffering-sappho-index&id=544%3Amore-egg-fu&option=com_content&Itemid=24 cracked]] out [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=34%3Asuffering-sappho-index&id=525%3Athe-fury-of-egg-fu&Itemid=24 issues]] of ''WonderWoman'' and ''The MetalMen'' had "Egg Fu", a gigantic yellow ''egg'' with stereotypical Oriental features and a "mustache tlap." (Well, "trap", but, [[JapaneseRanguage you know]].) John Byrne later tried to retinker him as a supercomputer from Apokolips (and one that was deemed culturally insensitive ''within the story''), but Creator/GrantMorrison making him one of the Great Ten (a Chinese superhero team also created by Grant Morrison), still an overly-intelligent yellow egghead named Chang Tzu, brought back the UnfortunateImplications.
