* There's quite a bit of this in the anime adaption of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles''. You have Jaeger fooling around, Selvaria trying desperately to do whatever Maximillian wants done and Karl hanging around trying to be helpful. Neither Gregor nor Maximillian take part in this, which is a clue to who the viewers are supposed to sympathise with. The [=OVAs=] play this up even further. The first two end with Selvaria hanging around a beach alone, and hanging around at a fesitval alone, hoping Maximillian will turn up. Then there's Selvaria's dress-up OVA and the card-game between the four main villains.

** Since Hoenn, Jessie has taken to entering Pokemon contests (usually in a PaperThinDisguise to avoid controversy), usually shanghaiing Meowth into the mix. This is especially evident in the Sinnoh contests and Kalos showcases, where they often competed without a villainous plan or intent of cheating, sometimes even [[TeamRocketWins winning from]] [[LaserGuidedKarma fair skills]].

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' features the Team Rocket trio in this trope semi-frequently. One episode had [[TheDon Giovanni]] spending time catching some rays at the beach while James and Jesse pestered Ash and co. while they were researching Slowpoke evolution.

** Hilariously done in "The Island of Giant Pokémon", where in one scene, Koffing and Ekans are chilling and having tea while Ash's Pokémon give Meowth a good shellacking.

* When Nagi (in both his ''Anime/{MaiHime'' and ''Anime/MaiOtome'' incarnations) isn't [[ManipulativeBastard messing with people's heads for fun]], he's sometimes seen reading from his favorite book and/or enjoying the local scenery.

* Kyo'ichi, already an IneffectualSympatheticVillain ButtMonkey in ''VampireDoll'', is degraded even further when the protagonists find him shopping for groceries, having swapped his ImpossiblyCoolClothes for a sweater. In another blow to his villainous reputation, he only shops at that store because the ladies running it find him to be TheWoobie and give him free stuff.

** The third-party villain Tron from ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' is seen watching cartoons in a few scenes. (Although in one of them, he's doing it while his henchman IV is nearby, negotiating with some mercenaries to deal with Yuma.) The villains Gilag and Alit are shown hanging out in a bar and Gilag gives Alit advice for his crush on Kotori. Gilag also watches TV (but he seems to steal cable) and reads manga frequently. He even draws some manga sketches and shows them to a manga artist, who says they suck.
