* [[spoiler:Adachi]] gets one in [[Anime/Persona4GoldenTheAnimation the anime adaptation of Persona 4 Golden]] entitled "Ying Yang". It is divided into 2 portions. One is a rap battle between himself and Yu performed by Lotus Juice. The other is a melancholy ballad about how he's "become so numb".

** And in the filler Doma Arc (a.k.a. Waking the Dragons), the main tool of the villains is a Field Spell card called the Seal of Orichalcos, which makes it so [[SeriousBusiness the loser of the Duel loses their soul.]] In the FourKidsEntertainment dub, the same music plays every time it's activated; surprisingly enough, it's easily one of the most epic themes in the series, as can be heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0_up7G34ak here]].

** Look at the LyricalDissonance in [[http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=54AtmjUSBKE "Yami no Baroque"]]. An upbeat, pop karaoke tune about crushing, nihilistic despair.
*** [[VillainousCrossdresser Lady Bat's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBUB3M1cF4E Ankoku no Tsubasa]]. A very evil song (with a [[EvilisSexy seductive beginning]]) about losing your love and sacrificing yourself to the world of darkness (and to Lady Bat's [[KissoftheVampire kiss]]) with a catchy tune and a badass guitar solo.

** Though she doesn't sing it in the context of the series, one of Ryouko Asakura's [[ImageSong image songs]] is a rock/techno villain song about the inferiority of humans and their emotions, her inability to feel kindness and joy [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and her being left out of the end credits]].

* In a similar vein, the first season of the ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Digimon]]'' anime features numerous songs for the villains, most notably first BigBad Devimon's "Dark Wing" and the NotSoHarmlessVillain second BigBad Etemon's "Love Serenade." Note that these were also the name of [[CallingYourAttacks their main attacks.]]

** [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Ken Ichijouji]], [[Anime/DigimonTamers Beelzebumon]], and [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Duskmon]] had villain songs too.
*** Beelzebumon's is weird because he seems to be singing as Blast Mode (he talks about having wings), but he's [[spoiler: not a villain anymore by the time he reaches that form.]]

* ''Manga/ZatchBell'' villains have the occasional habit of breaking into song... songs that are quirky but usually made of awesome. For examples, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9ZPpfP_rpU watch Koral Q act like a tokusatsu hero]]. Kiees [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCUtZXNnOz8 mangles Beethoven wonderfully]]. Gash's [[StalkerWithACrush creepy stalker]] has the rare song that's good in both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsCwP6XCQGw Japanese]] and English. And, of course, this trope would be horrendously incomplete without a [[Creator/NorioWakamoto certain]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse V-shaped]] [[MemeticMutation 1000-year-old]] [[EvilTastesGood melon-eating]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJeLfe7Hjc8 badass.]]

** Odd example within the fact that, heard singularly, neither song is particularly villainous: Meikyuu Butterfly tells of both her [[LoveMakesYouCrazy love]] for Ikuto (And also has some lines referring towards the fact that [[spoiler: [[BrotherSisterIncest its incest]].]]), and, upon a related note, how the easter company has trapped her by making threats to harm Ikuto to force her to cooperate [[spoiler: (Them both leaving results within the same being done to their mother.)]], whereas Black Diamond is something that only relates to the topic with the above mentioned question, otherwise not relating towards anything involving Utau her - self at all.

* The song [[AwesomeMusic/JojosBizarreAdventure "Voodoo Kingdom"]] performed by the rap group SOUL'd OUT for the [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Phantom Blood movie]] is this to [[MagnificentBastard Dio Brando]].
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5nIGMxrfX8 "Oingo Boingo Ending"]] from Stardust Crusaders is sung by the duo during their debut's credits. It's [[AwesomeMusic delightfully]] [[FunnyMoment quirky as expected]].
*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNAchRlQBAA It gets a reprise]] by Boingo and [[BadAssBaritone Hol Horse]]

It's mostly a creepy techno beat set to quotes from the titular villains from the show, but dang it's [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome]].

* Plenty in ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch''. The first season only had two. "Kuro no Kyousokyoku ~concerto~" was a dark rock revelry filled with MinionShipping and singing about breaking the bonds between the mermaids; appropriately enough, it's introduced around the same time as [[BrokenBird Caren]], who threatens to tear the group apart, and it's eventually defeated by a song called "Kizuna" (Bonds). "Return to the Sea" hinted at Sara's motivations and got a TriumphantReprise near the end. The second season gave the Black Beauty Sisters another song, "Yami no Baroque", much like their previous song, and gave each of the new villains their own songs where they sing about their powers (Lady Bat about hypnotism and vampirism, Lanhua about her instant minions, Alala about her LotusEaterMachine stars) or their loneliness (Michel's "Tsubasa wo Daite", which also hinted at his connection with Michal because her "Ashita wa Mienakute" used some of the same music).

* While there are no villains singing in {{Kinnikuman}} itself, EVERY villain has a villain song released on soundtrack. The villains themselves don't sing them admittedly, but it IS written as if they were the ones singing them, and they do give intros to the song, and sometimes even have spoken lines in them.

* Rip Van Winkle from the fourth ''{{Hellsing}}'' OVA was fond of singing the German opera ''Theatre/DerFreischuetz''. The Website/YouTube clips seem to have her singing the ''hero's'' part -- ''O diese Sonne!''. And when Alucard attacks her in the manga, he sings the demon's part.

* ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear GX'' has BigBad Carol's Image Song, ''[[http://puu.sh/ktnLf/4d09c2e24d.mp3 Senkin - Daurdabla]]'', which serves as a combined MotiveRant, BadassBoast and perfectly encapsulates her desires and plans. Note the title means ''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Genocide Harp]]''. Fitting, for someone whose goal is "Kill all the miracles."
