* "I'm Number One [You're Number Two]" in ''MuppetsMostWanted'' is a Villain Song Duet between Constantine (criminal mastermind and number one crook) and his associate, Dominic Badguy. It's not only celebrating their intention to pull off a series of heists and frame the Muppets, but Constantine reminding his flunky who's in charge.
* In the DisneyChannel original movie ''GirlVsMonster'', when the villainess, Deimata, possesses a supporting character and takes the stage from Skyler, she turns "Nothing's Gonna Stop Me" into a surprisingly rockin' villain song, ending with her seemingly forgetting that she's not in a musical and reaching into the camera. Unfortunately, we only get to hear a few parts of it.

** The BigBad, Bill Cipher, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was also going to get one in the]] GrandFinale, but it was cut, possibly due to time constraints.

** Even ''more'' bonus points come his way when you consider the movie is not a musical and these are the ''only two moments in the film'' where characters break out into song[[note]]There's also the showgirl, but it's a prerehearsed song number[[/note]]. Normally that would make them seem [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment incredibly out of place]], but they just fit Ratigan's personality so well the whole thing works spectactularly. Especially because it's quite clear he forces them to sing "The World's Greatest Criminal Mind".

** There's also King Louis' "I Wanna Be Like You," which is equal parts this and IWantSong.

** ''Be Prepared''. Just to drive the point home, the chorus of hyenas backing Scar through this song up march in formation at one point, in a manner [[PuttingOnTheReich based on footage of a real-world Nazi rally]]. Furthermore, most Villain Songs involve the villain's evil laughter at the end. This one trumps them all, with not just Scar and his TerribleTrio laughing, but about 200 OTHER hyenas joining in with them. Just take a look at the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X0dxn40r_c original English version]]
** "Be Prepared" originally had a reprise that was cut from the final film, that was to be sung as Scar took the throne. See it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3sUFeCQG1U here]]

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBXU8-P5EY4 "Prince Ali]] [[DarkReprise (Reprise)"]] in the first movie. In fact, there were 5 separate songs made for Jafar and all but one were cut. ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9vXZncjGvk Humiliate the Boy]]'' where Jafar [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin does what the title suggests]] (cut when it was decided that the Genie could only grant three wishes). ''My Time Has Come'' where Jafar recounts how hideous his life has been and how he is going to make everyone else miserable (cut for being too slow and introspective). ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7YbpeIvQSw Why Me]]'' was basically the same as ''My Time Has Come'' (cut because the directors felt it didn't advance the story enough, they also wanted something with a big chorus; kept in the musical adaptation). And ''My Finest Hour'' where Jafar pulls the earth into a ball and bats it around with the Genie (cut because the directors decided it was too late in the movie for an extended showstopper for the villain). Instead, the "Prince Ali (Reprise)" is a trim ditty that makes dramatic sense with Jafar turning Aladdin's entrance song into a sweet revenge where the sorcerer revels in having the upper hand.

** Ursula gets another song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGp1479XJzo Mess With Me]] in the animated series of ''The Little Mermaid''.
*** Ursula wasn't the only villain to get a song in the animated series. When you cast Tim Curry as a recurring villain, you've gotta let him sing!

** In the french version, in which he is dubbed by another, though not worldwidely known celebrity namely french singer Gérard Rinaldi , he got a third song well, an alternate version of the second. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHbVEJIQmkw "Bye Bye Déjà"]] does have the same tune as "Goodbye So Soon", but the lyrics are not a translation of the lyrics of "Goodbye So Soon" and the instrumental's totally new.

*** It's particularly chilling because, unlike most Disney villains, Frollo doesn't even begin to think he's bad. He think's he's probably the holiest person in all of Paris. He fully believes that his lust is her fault because she's literally the devil. He's not only evil - he's deluded and scared and angry, as opposite to the usual gloating most villain songs exhibit.

** In the stage version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RY_J7SjF_68 "Me"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpTvBcwB-vM "Maison des Lunes"]] (the latter comes when he plots to institutionalize Maurice) also qualify as these. "Me" is an example of the unconscious villain, as it's Gaston stating the facts of ''his'' little universe - which are that he's the best and he deserves his dreams to come true, because he's every woman's dream. "Maison des Lunes" is more straightforward, in that it involves wrongfully imprisoning a weak old man so Gaston can marry his willful daughter -- and ''relishing'' every minute of it.

*** The original version of The Gaston song has the additional part at the end where Lefou tries to spell Gaston's name but gives up.

** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moSFlvxnbgk Let It Go]]" actually [[WhatCouldHaveBeen started out]] as the villain song, but when the Lopez's were thinking about how to do it, they came up with a sympathetic angle, turning int more into a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds song, with Elsa happy about being free of the restrictions on her life. This literally got the whole movie rewritten (with some colorful language from the filmmakers) to turn Elsa into a ClassicalAntiHero {{Deuteragonist}}. In short, "Let It Go" is an AntiVillain song. Creator/IdinaMenzel's showstopping performance didn't hurt, either.
** On repeat viewings, it can be fairly easy to view [[spoiler: "Love is an Open Door"]] as a one-sided villain song. [[spoiler:Anna is singing about how love conquers all. Hans is singing about how her naive belief in True Love will hand him the kingdom]].
** Cut from the movie, probably replaced by [[spoiler: "Love is an Open Door"]] is [[spoiler: "You're you", also sung by Hans. In the same way as Open Door, it sounds sweet until his true intentions are revealed.]]
** "Cool With Me" is a scrapped villain song from when Elsa was the antagonist. In it Elsa has kidnapped Anna from her wedding and taken her to her ice castle. In it Elsa sings about how she wants to mend her relationship with Anna and make her "literally cool with her" while Anna is distraught over Elsa's cocky and villainous nature. Elsa [[ThatManIsDead abandons her name]] and instead wants to be addressed as "the Snow Queen". She wants the rest of her kingdom to fear her. It's also shown Anna has taken her crown in Elsa's absence. The song ends with Elsa ''intentionally'' freezing Anna's heart so that she will understand how Elsa feels.
