These villains aren't raging brutes or sinister tyrants, they embrace their villainy and want to put on a show while committing their dastardly deeds. They're charismatic, flamboyant, and dramatic, invoking Evil is Cool and Evil is Sexy. Likely a Man of Wealth and Taste or Draco in Leather Pants. Subtrope of Affably Evil.
