** Also, she is technically [[spoiler: Martian]], not Chinese. Those bits of her we see outside of the plot arc centered around her and outside class 3-A show her as smoothly blending in to Mahora culture and being genuinely social, friendly and helpful - which combined with the hints of a backstory which makes pulp villainy relatively lighthearted comedy strongly imply that to the extent this trope fits, she's [[InvokedTrope role-playing it on purpose]] both for effect and personal entertainment.



* Chin-Kee from ''ComicBook/AmericanBornChinese'' is an embodiment of every negative Asian stereotype, all of which are employed for satirical purposes.

* Chin-Kee from ''ComicBook/AmericanBornChinese'' is an embodiment of every negative Asian stereotype, all of which are employed for satirical purposes. (He's not really a ''villain'', but he can be unpleasant to be around and it's not clear if a couple of minor characters end up better off for having encountered him.)

* ''Literature/{{CALEXIT}}'': Much concern is had that an independent California would become a Chinese puppet-state and seek to expand into the American Southwest. As of the second book, this appears virtually given.

* ''Literature/TheMagicPudding'': Curry and Rice -- beyond his atrocious name, he's a FatBastard of a VillainousGlutton who uses strange magical powers to create an infinitely renewable pastry and then hoards it to himself while watching his fellow shipwreck strandees slowly starving to death. About the only way he's not a racist icon is his art, and that's because all of the humans portrayed in the illustrations are bizarre-looking caricatures.

As an expression of the "mysterious East" gone wrong, this villain traditionally had, or seemed to have, mystical powers. Often he had a beautiful daughter, who either [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter turned from her evil ways to work with the good guys]], or [[DaddysLittleVillain was herself]] [[DragonLady a scheming villain]], at least as bad as he, in her own right. He would likely know [[AllAsiansKnowMartialArts some form of martial arts]], and sometimes speak in a [[AsianSpeekeeEngrish thick and oddly-pronounced dialect]]. In other cases, the Yellow Peril may be an [[HordesFromTheEast evil horde making up in raw numbers what they lack in power,]] since China is the most populous country in the world.

* ''Film/RedDawn2012'' has ''North Korea'' invading the United States. (It was the Soviet Union, with Cuban shock troops, in the 1984 original.)

* ''Film/RedDawn2012'' has ''North Korea'' invading the United States. (It was the Soviet Union, with Cuban shock troops, in the 1984 original.)) The original script had China as the main aggressor but it was changed to North Korea due to fear of ending BannedInChina. The movies those mention "a coalition" of sorts.

* In ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}'' the EvilCorporation that apparently caused the awakening of the monster from the ocean's floor was the Japanese company Tagruato.

* A few particularly [[http://www.superdickery.com/the-fury-of-egg-fu/ cracked]] out [[http://www.superdickery.com/more-egg-fu/ issues]] of ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' and ''The ComicBook/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.
** That said, this was an experiment in seeing if even the most ridiculous character could be RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap. And in that vein, it was partially successful, giving Chang Tzu a less silly name and a somewhat dignified design.
*** In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' comic book, he turns out to be an EldritchAbomination named Y'ggphu-Soggoth.

John Byrne later tried to retinker him as a supercomputer from Apokolips (and one that was deemed culturally insensitive ''within the story''), but this was undone by Creator/GrantMorrison making him one of the Great Ten (a Chinese superhero team also created by Grant Morrison), Morrison) and dubbing him "Chang Tzu." While Morrison ditched the mustache and the accent, his Chang Tzu was still an overly-intelligent yellow egghead named Chang Tzu, Asian egghead, which brought back the UnfortunateImplications.

* The second ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' episode "[[Recap/SherlockS01E02TheBlindBanker The Blind Banker]]" is an old-fashioned Yellow Peril story that smacks viewers in the face with every Chinese stereotype ever portrayed in television.

* ''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.

* ''Film/IronMan3'' both averts this and cleverly [[spoiler:exploits]] this. The Mandarin is an WickedCultured DiabolicalMastermind, played by the British-Indian actor BenKingsley, who does follow some classical Chinese philosophy. [[spoiler:Except he's not. Kingsley's character is a washed-up actor named Trevor Slattery who is being paid by Dr. Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce - a white dude) to be the front for his operations in exchange for a cushy life]].
