->"My, aren't we ''fierce?'' Guards, castrate him."
-->-- '''Ard''', ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal''

The Sissy Villain, as his name would suggest, is a man whose heart is as twisted as his wrist is limp.

Due to [[ThereShouldBeALaw social stigmas]] against male femininity and "unmanliness", there's a strong tendency in fiction to assign effeminate traits to villains: flamboyant mannerisms, delicate voices, light builds, prissiness, [[APrettyBoyIndex femininely pretty]] looks, [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness grandiloquent]] [[BreakThemByTalking speeches]], {{giggling|Villain}}, [[WickedCultured love for poetry and opera]], [[ManOfWealthAndTaste impeccable fashion sense]] ([[CreepyCrossdresser not always in men's clothing]]), fondness for [[RightHandCat Persian cats]], etc. Evil, it seems, is swishier than a silk skirt.

Frequently, TheHero pitted against the Sissy Villain is an old-fashioned Manly Man (any [[RealMenWearPink feminine traits he has are merely there to underscore his masculinity]]) and making the villain "unmasculine" is intended to emphasize this. After all, [[BrokenAesop there's nothing manlier]] [[LogicalFallacies than beating up a sissy]]. It doesn't even matter that [[AgentPeacock the limp-wristed villain is powerful]], he '''looks''' weak and homosexual and that's what matters.

The Sissy Villain is probably the second most common portrayal of CampGay [[AcceptableTargets men]] (besides "one-dimensional joke character"), but is not necessarily synonymous with DepravedHomosexual. While Sissy Villains are frequently [[DepravedHomosexual gay]] or [[DepravedBisexual bisexual]], most of them are merely [[AmbiguouslyGay sexually ambiguous]] or [[{{Asexuality}} seemingly asexual]], and some of them are [[CampStraight straight]]. The Sissy Villain isn't intended to creep out the audience just because of the implication that he might like men (although this occasionally factors in), but because he ''acts'' like a real wimp.

There is a weird bit of irony to this: regardless of what the villain looks or acts like, EvilIsCool, and these villains (assuming they're worth their salt) will wreak just as much havoc as any other archetype. So, overexposure to this trope may lead kids to see this personality as badass in its own way, even leading boys to imitate their behaviour and mannerisms.

This trope shows up mainly in Western works and those Japanese works aimed at a male audience; if the villain is presented as [[{{Bishonen}} certain kinds]] [[WhiteHairBlackHeart of swishy]], [[MisaimedFandom female fans]] are likely to declare him [[DracoInLeatherPants utterly fabulous]].

Sissy Villains show up frequently in anime, where they often have [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white hair]]. Two common subtropes are CreepyCrossdresser and EunuchsAreEvil. See also FashionVictimVillain, GorgeousGeorge, DepravedHomosexual, DepravedBisexual, and PsychoLesbian. May sometimes overlap with [[HeManWomanHater misogynistic]] [[StrawMisogynist views]] in the context of the EffeminateMisogynisticGuy. Contrast with RealMenWearPink, and occasionally, EvilSoundsDeep. When his ambiguous (nor not so ambiguous) sexuality is played for laughs, that's QueerPeopleAreFunny. Not to be confused with NonActionBigBad, although they can overlap. If the villain in question is either {{Satan}} himself, or one of his minions, he's a FlamingDevil.

Note: An AgentPeacock is considered Badass, even though you wouldn't expect it at first. A Sissy Villain emphasizes his viciousness through feminine behavior. The tropes can overlap, especially when AgentPeacock is evil.

Since quite a few women actually find effeminate men attractive, this can also lead to EvilIsSexy.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Yuki Michio, the main villain from Creator/OsamuTezuka's classic thriller ''Manga/{{MW}}''. Not only was he a crossdresser, he was also openly bisexual.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': [[SevenDeadlySins Envy]] has an extremely androgynous appearance, coupled with an [[CreepyCrossdresser effeminate outfit]]. However, he is a ruthless, murderous nutcase who goes out of his way to cause as much suffering as he can.
** Envy is something of an unusual case, as ''they'' technically don't have a gender, with the ([[VoluntaryShapeshifting default]]) form they choose to take being somewhere between female and male. It should, however, be worth noting that most characters through the series refer to Envy using male pronouns, though this is because in the English language, "He" is the gender-neutral pronoun someone is supposed to say when the gender is unknown.
** This is only the case in the manga and Brotherhood anime. In the 2003 anime, Envy is definitely male [[spoiler:and Ed's older brother.]]
* Harley from the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime embodies this trope to the fullest. He's one of the most cold-hearted rival characters in the show and he [[KickTheDog treats May like crap]], but he always looks fabulous doing it. He's "Everyone's favorite naughty coordinator."
* Griffith from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' as an androgynous CulturedBadass.
* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'':
** Pegasus from ''[[Anime/YuGiOh the original anime]]'' is a CampStraight PsychopathicManchild whose preferred monsters are based off his childhood cartoons (get him mad enough, though, and he'll bring out Relinquished). In case you wondered if this was limited to the dub, he's ''exactly'' as flamboyant in the original, right down to appending "-boy" to his opponent's names.
** Espa Roba was more like a SnakeOilSalesman than a true villain, but he was pretty effeminate. (Of course, he ''did'' used to be a circus performer, which likely explained the outfit.)
** Ziegfried and Marik to lesser degrees.
** Professor Chronos from ''Anime/YuGiOhGX''. (Until his HeelFaceTurn anyway; after that, he was simply a sissy.) Note that his Ancient Gear Monsters were ''very'' masculine, it's just that ''he'' wasn't.
** Jeagar, Rex Godwin's henchman from ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' was like this, [[MonsterClown and was a creepy clown on top of it.]] (But again, having grown up in a circus, he had an excuse. And [[AntiVillain he wasn't truly evil anyway.]])
** Mr. Heartland, TheDragon to Dr. Faker in ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal''.
** Yuri from ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', and he stands out among the names listed above. While many of them have some humor potential and/or redeeming qualities that keeps them from being true monsters, Yuri has ''neither''. He's a Sissy Villain who's a cruel sadist ''and'' dangerous threat.
* ''Franchise/OnePiece''
** Mr. 2 Bon Kurei, although he partially reforms by the end of the Alabasta arc. [[spoiler:He's even become a close ally of Luffy, even making (another) HeroicSacrifice]].
** A better example is Donquixote Doflamingo. Visually, he's based off many of the pro wrestling examples below, and makes suggestive comments to his opponents during the Marineford battle. Nonetheless, he is one of the most terrifying characters on the show, and until recently had the highest revealed bounty.
** One of Donflamingo's subordinates, Dellinger, also qualifies. He's a young man who wears hoop earrings, high heels, and booty shorts; he also hits like a truck and has an explosive temper with sadistic tendencies to match.
** An even better example is Helmeppo, Captain Morgan's son. He's also a JerkAss of the highest caliber. Until he [[HeelFaceTurn lost the villain aspect]] and TookALevelInBadass, anyway. Now he's just highly fashionable and only kinda rude.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''
** Orochimaru first appears disguised as a woman, [[BodySurf at one point used another woman's body as a vessel]], and in his least freaky times speaks with a feminine speech pattern. And this is before you factor in [[MemeticMolester his obsession with young Uchiha men]] and the giant purple [[FanNickname butt bow]]. However, he is a very formidable opponent who, despite being killed twice, is still around in one form or another.
** His teenage henchman Sakon, the default leader of the Sound Four, wanders somewhere between this and RealMenWearPink. He does indeed wear pink, sports pretty jewelery and goth makeup, and from the looks of it pays more attention to his hair than his squadmates (admittedly, not hard). He's also a vicious, strutting, trash-talking sadist who can and will demolish solid rock with a single punch.
* Johan Liebert, the titular ''Anime/{{Monster}}''. [[spoiler:He crossdresses, but it's because he sees himself and the sister he's dressing as as essentially the same person, with no definition between them. And he's too damaged and empty to even qualify as {{asexual}} in the healthy orientation sense, let alone gay.]]
* Suzu from the ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'' manga becomes this, after going [[AxCrazy mad]]. He starts wearing nail polish and makeup, has the best fashion sense of all the characters, has flamboyant mannerisms and prissiness, [[GigglingVillain giggles creepily]], and has an extremely [[{{Bishonen}} effeminate appearance]]. Oh, and he has a great fondness for [[RightHandCat exotic cats]] and an obsession towards Tetsunosuke.
* Creed from ''Manga/BlackCat''. Good god, this trope ''is'' Creed (coupled with him being AmbiguouslyGay). He has the flamboyant mannerisms, gives HannibalLecture speeches (mostly to Train, whom he wants to [[WeCanRuleTogether rule the world with]]), Is WickedCultured in contrast to [[MenAreUncultured Train]], has the most [[FashionVictimVillain laughable fashion sense of all the men in the series]], and is a white haired {{Bishonen}}. Granted, [[TheProtagonist Train]] is actually shown to be more petite and have a smaller body build than his, but that is attributed as Train being more boy-ish.
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'':
** Zoicite. The Creator/DiC dub [[ShesAManInJapan turned him into a girl]] to satisfy the MoralGuardians.
** How about [[CreepyCrossdresser Fish Eye]]? Oh right, [[ShesAManInJapan same reason]].
* Dilandau, the {{Bishonen}} PsychoForHire from ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne''. [[spoiler:But there's a [[GenderBender very good reason]] [[BrainwashedAndCrazy for that]].]]
* ''Manga/DragonBall'':
** Frieza. A petite, painstakingly polite alien with a color scheme of pink, purple, and white who happens to be [[AxCrazy the most evil villain in the Dragon Ball mythos.]] He is voiced by a woman with a raspy old lady voice in the English dub[[note]]Specifically the Funimation and Ocean dubs with Linda Young and Pauline Newstone respectively[[/note]] and complains about not wanting to break his nails during his fight with Goku. However, in the original Japanese [[VocalDissonance he has a]] [[EvilSoundsDeep deep voice]] and a masculine way of speaking. Friea's newest [=VA=], Chris Ayres, has a raspy, high pitched though still noticeably masculine voice similar to the voice Creator/LittleKuriboh gives him.
** Zarbon until he changes into his [[PowerUpgradingDeformation final form]]. Particularly in the redub with his voice, which sounds like a cross between King Cold and Caroni.
** The ''Creator/TeamFourStar'' [[TheAbridgedSeries abridged series]] averts the Sissy Villain trope for Frieza. Zarbon, on the other hand, has his campness played up to the point where he speaks almost entirely in {{double entendre}}s [[spoiler: - but it was subverted in episode 17 when it was revealed that he is in fact [[CampStraight straight]], and is shocked to find out that everyone around him thinks he's gay]].
** Further back than that, there is General Blue of the Red Ribbon Army. A ruthless, homicidal goose-stepper who is irked with having to dive into grimy-looking water, is disgusted by Bulma's advances on him and [[EekAMouse freaks out when he sees a rat passing by]][[spoiler:, which ends up saving Goku and his friends' lives as this freakout causes him to lose focus of his paralysis technique and release Goku from it.]]
* Somewhat frequent for various ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' villains:
** M'Quve of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' is a male RichBitch who speaks with a snooty accent, wears an ascot, has incredibly swishy wrists, minces when he walks, and generally effects the mannerisms of an eighteenth-century aristocrat. He's also a cold-blooded strategist, and [[UndyingLoyalty utterly loyal]] to his [[LadyAndKnight lady]], [[EvilGenius Kycilia]] [[LadyOfWar Zabi]].
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam'': Ginias Sahalin fits this trope to a T. Ascots? Check. Fruity wardrobe in general? Check. Sexual ambiguity? Check (he's one of the series' only characters who doesn't have at least implied heterosexual preferences). [[Creator/ShowHayami A seiyuu known for voicing numerous well-known BL characters]]? Check.
** Angelo Sauper of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'' is a full-on CampGay with a purple mobile suit and a [[{{Jerkass}} mean streak]] [[DepravedHomosexual at least a full colony wide]], but this doesn't stop him from being [[BigBad his beloved boss']] [[TheDragon right hand]] and [[VillainousValour one of the best]] [[BadassGay pilots in the series]].
** Most of the Innovators of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' combine this with AmbiguousGender and FashionVictimVillain.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'':
** Jakotsu the second in command of the Band of Seven is extremely effeminate, looks, talks, acts, and dresses like a woman, is obsessed with fashion, hates women, and is very openly gay, but he is also a dangerous psychopath with a [[WhipSword very cool sword]]. Jakotsu was originally going to be a woman, but the author changed it because she disliked the idea of [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman human woman]] [[WouldntHitAGirl getting killed by the main heroes]].
** The one shot villain Suzaku was also quite effeminate and flamboyant and he openly flirted with Miroku and Hojo's ancestor.
** The infamous gay moth demons. The sheer amount of innuendo was staggering.
** The main villain of the first movie is this until he turns into his OneWingedAngel form.
** Naraku doesn't only posses the human form of a long haired, fair skinned Bishonen. Miroku's grandfather tells us that Naraku often took the form of a beautiful woman to trick him. Moreover, Naraku shape shifted himself into Kikyo to distract [=InuYasha=].
* Kazkis Proxy of ''Anime/ErgoProxy'' is a {{Bishonen}} angelic-looking guy who likes to drink wine and initially comes across as a little too friendly to the hero, Vincent.
* The previous page picture was of Cytomander from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Considering the protagonist's {{Super Robot|Genre}} is actually powered by [[HotBlooded MANLY SPIRIT]], it's surprising that he's the only Sissy Villain in the series. The good guys also have a very effeminate man on their side too, CampGay mecha lover and all-around genius Leeron.
* Koushaku Chouno, better known as Papillon Mask, from ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' arguably fits this trope, though [[HoYay his sexuality is debatable]]. Still, he dresses in a flamboyant outfit including Speedos and a distinctive butterfly mask, and he certainly has a lot of FoeYay with Kazuki. [[spoiler:And then there's the mankini...]]
* Kano in ''Manga/{{Texhnolyze}}'' is effeminate and physically unimpressive, as well as a schizophrenic soplisist [[IncestIsRelative produced from generations of selective inbreeding.]]
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'': Dio Brando has shades of this despite being a rather muscular man who [[BerserkButton becomes a ruthless, shrieking killer whenever Joestars are involved]]. He's described as charming and soft-spoken by characters in the story and is often shown wearing dark lipstick. Not to mention the fact that he was [[BiTheWay heavily implied]] to have been romantically involved with Enrico Pucci.
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''
** Lussuria is blatantly ManlyGay, has a lot of colorful feathers on his outfit, in the anime his voice is very feminine sounding, and he's also rather flamboyant with his mannerisms. During his fight with Ryohei he also goes into fanboy mode once Ryohei takes off his shirt and he decides he wants to [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe take Ryohei home with him]] and make him a part of his 'collection'.
** Mukuro was this before his ambiguous HeelFaceTurn. The guy picked Kokuyou Junior High because of ''how stylish the uniforms were''. His sexuality is quite ambiguous as well, considering how much FoeYay he has with Hibari and Tsuna in particular. His plans of taking over Tsuna's body so he could get revenge on the mafia also carried some questionable subtext, what with all his talk of "wanting Tsuna's body", telling Tsuna to "give me your body", and that "with my technique you will soon be mine."
** Byakuran seems to have traces of this. He wears a bondage outfit in chapter 274 and the following chapters, with zippers all the way up his legs, and gains sparkling wings.
** There's also Kikyo with his DudeLooksLikeALady appearance, long blue hair, tendency to walk around with his shirt open, and what appears to be blue eye shadow.
* Prince Eccentro from ''Anime/MonColleKnights'' fits the trope perfectly. His Japanese counterpart, Count Collection, actually is gay.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter''
** Neferpitou, a male cat-humanoid chimera ant with a very feminine appearance and mannerisms.
** Also, [[MonsterClown Hisoka]] to an extent.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
** [[MadScientist Szayel Aporro Granz]]. He has [[DudeLooksLikeALady effeminate looks]], [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair shoulder-length pink hair]], is extremely flamboyant, and tends to make lewd, disturbing comments about his opponents. He also thinks of himself as an actor, especially when toying with/torturing his victims. During his first fight with Renji and Ishida, his clothes get damaged, leaving him shirtless - he stops the fight to go change clothes, saying that he'd be "too embarrassed" to continue fighting in such a state. Szayel's release involves him sword-swallowing his zanpakto, at which point he [[BalloonBelly bloats up to massive proportions]]. His released state looks like he's wearing a dress made of tentacles.
** Luppi as well. With his [[DudeLooksLikeALady girlish looks]] and sleeves that cover his hands. He's CampStraight in that while he's flamboyant he still flirts with Rangiku right before trying to kill her.
** Charlotte Cuulhorne, who has flowing purple hair and whose outfit resembles a tutu.
** ''[[BigBad Aizen]]'' of all people has gone this route. If his [[FanNickname Gagafication]] and insta-mullet weren't already goofy enough, his OneWingedAngel form seems to be a [[WingedHumanoid six-winged]] ''[[ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth butterfly]]''. [[FashionVictimVillain In a dress]].
** FillerVillain Muramasa to an extent.
* Both Arthur and Shalott of ''Manga/AirGear''. Arthur is a masochist who pelvic thrusts against his male opponent Agito and nibbles on his ear while fighting him. He also has flamboyant mannerisms, speaks in a polite manner, and frequently releases heart marks whenever he's reveling in the feeling of pain. Shalott is a loli who wears a frilly looking dress and [[UnsettlingGenderReveal drops a bridget]] on Agito, revealing that he's actually a girly-looking guy who is in a BDSM type relationship with Arthur. The end of chapter 279 has him pin Agito to the ground and straddle him, saying after he tortures him then Agito can "lick it" if he wants.
* The ''Franchise/LupinIII'' series has had at least three of them, so far:
** ''[[Anime/LupinIIITheSecretOfTwilightGemini The Secret of Twilight Gemini]]'' has [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy Sadachiyo]] [[RedBaron "The Scorpion"]], who's a CampGay assassin with long black hair, lipstick, and nail polish. Lupin even referred to him as [[LampshadeHanging "that sissy assassin"]], given Sadachiyo's manner of speech and the fact that he often refers to others as: "honey", "darling", and "big boy".
** ''[[Anime/LupinIIIThePursuitOfHarimaosTreasure The Pursuit of Harimao's Treasure]]'': [[PunnyName Herr Maffrodite]] is essentially [[VillainousCrossdresser a crossdressing Nazi]], who's actually gay ''and'' [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy hates women.]] Fujiko weaponizes this near the end, when she revenge kisses him[[note]]for double-crossing her, after ''[[{{hypocrite}} she]]'' [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder had double-crossed Lupin]] to side with Herr Maffrodite[[/note]] on the lips, causing him to literally [[VillainousBreakdown run away screaming that he'd been dirtied.]]
** [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy Oscar]] from ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine'' is less of an outright villain and more of a side character who made a FaceHeelTurn because LoveMakesYouEvil, but he's still an incredibly fruity antagonist of the second half of the show, defined by his obsession with [[SingleTargetSexuality his beloved Inspector Zenigata]] and the jealousy towards Fujiko.
* Two ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'' villains qualify. Shirogane, the RubberMan euphoric, is a very arrogant and somewhat campy ballet instructor who in his transformed state, runs around in what looks like a gimp suit. More sympathetically is Tsujido, the leader of the TerribleTrio, who wears something that could pass for a SpyCatsuit with his AbsoluteCleavage jacket unzipped half-way. Whether or not his feelings for his boss, [[BigBad Suitengu]], run any deeper is ambiguous, but it was [[WordOfGod clearly stated]] he was was supposed to "give off an atmosphere of having an AmbiguousGender".
* Escargon from ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa''. His HoYay with Dedede is a running gag.
* Ukiyo of ''Anime/SamuraiSeven'' is a mincing fop who either always wears make-up, or for some reason, has that as his natural skin tone. However, he's a CampStraight version- the fact that he's often with his PaidHarem marks him as pretty clearly heterosexual (and some of the mincing is just an act anyway). There's also Hyogo, an elite mook, who has an androgynous appearance and wears lipstick and what seems like [[CreepyCrossdresser women's clothing]].
* Jaibo and to some extent Raizou from ''Manga/LitchiHikariClub''. Both are overtly gay with girlish looks and clearly crazy but Jaibo takes it to a whole new level of sadism. [[spoiler: From disemboweling teachers to planning to kill virtually everyone so that Zera will be his forever there is nothing Jaibo will not do.]]
* Rosiel from ''Manga/AngelSanctuary'' is an angel with full, luscious lips and long eyelashes. He often dresses effeminately and loves to be called "beautiful" more than anything else. He is also in a questionable relationship with his loyal right-hand man, Katan.
* Yuda from ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''. While his large harem seems to imply he's straight, he's nonetheless obsessed with his own physical perfection, to the point of being worried about scars in battle. This makes him look even more cowardly and twisted. In one of the most "manly" anime series, the master of [[FantasticFightingStyle Red Crane Nanto]] is obviously depicted as everything a proud warrior should not be. Moreover he weirdly shows his "admiration" for Rei and uses a very heavy make-up,but he's still a fighter, so he's quite muscular, as anyone there besides casual oppressed peasants/children.
* Hiromi Kisiragi of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' is cornerback for the [[OpposingSportsTeam Hakushuu Dinosaurs]], CoDragons to ManipulativeBastard Marco alongside [[TheJuggernaut Gaou]], and an incredibly [[UnnecessaryRoughness cruel player]] who tries his best to dislocate the arms of receivers. He's also a mincing pretty-boy with a massive mancrush on Gaou and the belief that [[TheFightingNarcissist strength is a true indicator of beauty]]. It's actually justified in his case and played sympathetically--sick of being bullied due to his effeminate nature and looks he joined the football team to get a life and was turned into the PsychoSupporter he is today by Marco.
* Masao from ''Manga/{{Shiki}}'' may qualify, as he's wimpy and somewhat effeminate-looking (though any actual feminine traits he has tend to be somewhat downplayed). Interestingly enough, he appears to be straight while Natsuno, who's one of the few heroic characters in the story, is often considered AmbiguouslyGay.
* Arron and Gurran Schmittel from ''Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms'' are generally characterized as cold and narcissistic, but have effeminate speech patterns, soft voices, flamboyant mannerisms and body language, and dress in split-skirt tunics (as opposed to the unitard fashion most men are seen wearing). But the two are also notoriously incompetent, can't really fight, and their haughtiness brings about their downfall.
* BigBad [[spoiler: Hakka]] in ''Manga/ZombieLoan'' will shamelessly hit on anything with a Y chromosome, gropes a male character's ass at one point, and even refers to himself as [[spoiler:Michiru (aka the Singularity)]]'s mother.
* Shuu Tsukiyama of ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has over-the-top Camp mannerisms and a fabulous fashion sense and develops an obsession with Kaneki. He's also a very dangerous and infamous Ghoul known as "The Gourmet'' who's skilled in martial arts and very deadly when using his kagune, managing to fight Kaneki, Touka, and Nishiki all by himself. He also is very pretty in appearance and frequently admonishes comrade Chie for her unladylikeness.
** Nico is a self proclaimed pursuer of beautiful people and considers an exposed spinal cord and ruining people's lives to be a wonderful thing. He also is TooKinkyToTorture and has a definite fondness for deranged and badass men especially Yamori. He is a mincing gay Okama who is associated with flowers and wears open shirts. In the 2016 calendar he was dressed in bondage and fishnets and was described as being equivalent to a girl with his effeminate qualities and crushes on men.
** Furuta Nimura is CampStraight (though he does have the occasional FoeYay with Kaneki) and in love with Rize and many fans describe him as fabulous and fruity (it's a pun on his name). He certainly is conventionally sexy with a gothic appearance and dresses smartly while mincing around and posing in suggestive and [[{{Narm}} comical]] fashions.
* Ferid of ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' is a dangerous DepravedBisexual vampire whom is described WordOfGod to be [[DudeLooksLikeALady quite pretty]] with a obsession with cleanliness, keeps his [[LongHairedPrettyBoy long hair in a ponytail with a ribbon]] (he has several ribbons and says he wears them because they're cute) and postures a lot. Supplementary materials dictate that he has designed several of Mika's outfits. He even compares himself to a "delicate flower" in chapter 46 while joking that he needs his comrade Crowley to save him from a revenge fueled Yuu before flirting with Yuu when he calms down. His [[BadassGay sissiness doesn't detract from his badassness though]].
* Masami Eiri in ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'', in addition to a unisex name, has long hair and a slightly feminine face with a open shirt that reveals his chest, and during his first confrontation with the eponymous character, talks in feminine speech. A rare case of this actually making him ''more'' intimidating, especially hearing it in his [[EvilSoundsDeep deep, masculine voice]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/TheJoker is [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]] portrayed like this, perhaps most famously in ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''. [[spoiler:One fan theory about Joker's murder of Jason Todd (Robin) is that after he beat Jason bloody with a crowbar, he sexually molested his unconscious form. His leering, ogling expression as he's swinging the crowbar makes this theory uncomfortably plausible.]]
* Xerxes in ''ComicBook/ThreeHundred'' was also one. Creator/FrankMiller likes this trope.
* How much of it is based on historical behavior and how much is writer embellishment is debatable, but King James I is well on his way to this in ''ComicBook/{{Marvel 1602}}'' and ''definitely'' this in ''1602: New World''.
* The galactic emperor from an in-universe FanFiction (read by Comicbook/{{Empowered}}) who forces Major Havoc and Syndablokk to have sex together.
* Yellow Bastard from ''ComicBook/SinCity'' was a SpoiledBrat with a dose of DirtyCoward.
* The Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}} version of ComicBook/{{Loki}} is a somewhat deconstruction of this. He actually became villainous ''because'' he was too ''sissy'' for Asgardian standards. Being a scrawny human-sized ice giant living in a land that ranks brute force and power above intellect and magic, with [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor a brother]] who is the personification of the former is his FreudianExcuse. Loki's later incarnations have actually come out as bisexual and genderfluid, and have generally become more AntiHero than villain, underscoring this and supporting the idea that [[InternalizedCategorism internalized homo/biphobia and transphobia]] are also part of Loki's problem.
* ''ComicBook/CaptainKlutz''[='s=] Sissyman is a fairly... blatant.. example.
* Hardcore, one of ComicBook/{{Luke Cage|HeroForHire}}'s enemies from the nineties, wore a purple outfit, appeared to be wearing red lipstick in some of his appearances, and constantly quoted poetry. One of his weapons was also a hyper-sharpened fingernail.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* [[Literature/HarryPotter Voldemort]] (!) is inexplicably wearing high heels in one scene in ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'', [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment and only for that scene]]. This prompted one dramatic reading to display the caption "VOLDEMORT IS IN DRAG" and pause for a few seconds (complete with RecordNeedleScratch) to let this image sink in.
%%* Glyde in ''FanFic/MegaManReawakened''.
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''
** Bakura and Marik, who are [[DepravedHomosexual gay]] and in the TransparentCloset, respectively.
** Also Pegasus, who is CampStraight only because we know he had a wife.
-->'''Marik:''' Foolish fools! There are no women in ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' There are only extremely girly men. ''And I am the most girly of them all!''\\
'''Pegasus:''' Keep ''telling'' yourself that.
* ''WebVideo/DeathNoteTheAbridgedSeriesKpts4tv'': In which Light Yagami's TransparentCloset is a RunningGag, Mello plays up the EvilBrit {{Gayngster}} angle and is frequently mistaken for Music/LadyGaga, [[FlamingDevil Ryuk]] who pretty much [[MemeticMolester goes after]] AnythingThatMoves and is rather fond of watching ''Series/DancingWithTheStars'', and also [[spoiler: Souichiro]] who [[RonTheDeathEater becomes a villain in this series]] and [[CreepyCrossdresser on occasion cosplays]] as Manga/SailorMoon.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon:
** Scar from ''Disney/TheLionKing'' is easily the most limp-pawed feline ever to grace the big screen. This becomes a ParentalBonus for the Swedish Viewers where Scar is dubbed by the '''Very''' Gay and '''Very''' Out Actor/Singer Richard Wolff. How out is he? He penned a song describing his ComingOutStory titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J67JyB3PxVo "Beautiful Boys, Beautiful Men"]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rJODmZtvuI Don't worry, Scar is still awesome.]]
** ''Disney/RobinHood'''s anthropomorphic depiction of Prince John out-swishes Scar to such a degree, the ''[[Disney/TheLionKing Lion King]]'' villain looks positively {{Leatherman}} by comparison.
** Sure, they take the cake for the felines, but what about ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'''s Ratigan? Until he drops the veneer and goes feral during the climactic ClockTower scene, anyway. (He was still rather imposing even before then, due to his enormous size and strength compared to the other characters. Well, as imposing as a [[IAmNotWeasel big mouse]] can get, at least.)
** "Honest" John Worthington Foulfellow in ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' has his moments, though it may be more of a LargeHam persona thing. See the bit where he prances around and mimes throwing flowers while describing Pleasure Island "where ''every'' day is a holiday!"
** Tamatoa the giant crab from ''Disney/{{Moana}}''. He is vain, shallow, and campy with effeminate mannerisms and a voice like Music/DavidBowie.
** The color didn't yet have quite the same [[PinkGirlBlueBoy significance]] in the 1940s, when the movie is set, but the weasel leader's pale pink suit in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' gives this impression to a number of 21st-century viewers. (It ''did'' have that significance in 1988 when the movie was ''made'', though, so one wonders.)
** Disney's human villains aren't immune either. Take ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}''[='s=] mincing, flouncing, bow-wearing villain Governor Ratcliffe, for one. Most of that façade was forced on him by his assistant, Wiggins, who was extremely effeminate. Ratcliffe had his boisterous and rowdy side on occasion, though it was often just an act as well, when his men stood up to him, he folded.
--->'''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick:''' Nothing says sinister like little pink bows on your pigtails!
%%** Captain Hook of ''Disney/PeterPan''
** King Candy from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' [[spoiler:up until the moment you find out it was an act to conceal his ''real'' identity, Turbo]]. Lives in a ''[[InsistentTerminology salmon]]''-colored castle, has a lisp, hops around with various effeminate mannerisms. [[spoiler:The castle's actually a plot-point: it's girly because he stole it from a 10-year old princess.]]
* Sarousch, the RepulsiveRingmaster from ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame II'', is a textbook {{narcissist}}, staring at his reflection constantly and even saying "I could kiss me". In fact, in most Disney films you can tell if a villain is a Sissy Villain based on his eyelids. If they are heavy and almost purple you can be sure that's the intention. This is because their eyelids look like they have eye shadow on them to give the implication they're wearing make up. Disney seems to be quite fond of using this.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/RockADoodle'': The Grand Duke and his hench-owls.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'': the rebel leader Ard in the segment "Den". He's rather puny-looking and talks like a stereotypical CampGay (see page quote above) but it turns out he has a HealingFactor which lets him shrug off being plugged multiple times with an automatic rifle.
* Marvin [=McNasty=] from ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppiesAndTheLegendOfBigPaw'' has his moments of being flamboyant, particularly when he swings his hips during his performance of "[[VillainSong The King of Everything]]".
* The evil Nekron in ''WesternAnimation/FireAndIce'' is this to a T, but with this being a Frazetta film even he gets a shirtless swordfight scene eventually.
%%* The Chief Blue Meanie in ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine''.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Raoul Silva (as played by Creator/JavierBardem), the antagonist of ''Film/{{Skyfall}}''. He even actively fuels the FoeYay between him and [[Film/JamesBond 007]].
* One of the complaints often levied against the Film/HarryPotter films is that Voldemort often comes across as this.
* Komodo from ''Film/WarriorsOfVirtue'' is prissy, frilly and effeminate, but he [[CampStraight very clearly has gotten with several of the hot women in this movie anyway]].
* Buffalo Bill, the quasi-trans SerialKiller from ''Film/SilenceOfTheLambs'' is one of the most famous examples.
* ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'' pits macho AntiHero Sam Spade up against ''three'' Sissy Villains: Joel Cairo, Kasper Gutman, and Wilmer. (Only UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode prevented the film from out-and-out showing that Cairo and Wilmer are the {{Gayngster}}s they are in the novel.)
%%* Waldo Lydecker from ''Film/{{Laura}}''.
* Bruno from ''Film/StrangersOnATrain'', Brandon and Philip from ''Film/{{Rope}}'', Norman Bates from ''Film/{{Psycho}}''... it's safe to say that Creator/AlfredHitchcock loved this trope.
* Archibald Cunningham from ''Film/RobRoy'', a downright fop who murders people to buy fancy new clothes. He affects a comically mincing facade, but [[LetsGetDangerous drops the act]] behind closed doors and when he's angry. When talking to his mistress he [[LampshadeHanging actually mentions]] putting on a "lithp" as part of his highborn act. True to the way this trope is usually played, TheHero is the classically manly [[Creator/LiamNeeson Rob Roy]], though unusually, Cunningham is a vastly superior fighter with a fair amount of VillainousValour.
* King Xerxes of ''Film/ThreeHundred''. He is usually wearing nothing but a gold speedo and lounging seductively on his throne.
* The Scorpio Killer from ''Film/DirtyHarry''. The contrast is made more blatant by the fact that Harry Callahan is played by quintessential "man's man" Creator/ClintEastwood.
%%* Charlie Prince in the remake of ''Film/ThreeTenToYuma2007''.
* [[CreepyCrossdresser Dr. Frank-N-Furter]] from ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', albeit he's an EvilIsCool and EvilIsSexy example.
* Jareth the Goblin King from ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' is every bit as fabulously {{camp}}y as [[Music/DavidBowie the man who played him]], but in a decidedly [[EvilIsSexy sexy]] and [[EvilIsCool cool]] way like Frank-N-Furter mentioned above. Complicating the issue further is his [[CampStraight definite affinity for the ladies]], or at least for Creator/JenniferConnelly.
-->'''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic:''' But Hoggle is reminded to give Sarah the poison fruit...Why is it not that hard to imagine Bowie saying "[[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Now I'll be fairest in the land!]]"
* ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''
** Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd
** Blofeld from the same movie got quite the upgrade in fabulousness, as well. He even got to dabble in {{Creepy Crossdress|er}}ing.
* Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg from ''Film/TheFifthElement'' had some of these traits, specifically the delicacy and high fashion. Remember his perfectly appointed office? [[TheHero Dallas]], on the other hand, is an ex-soldier played by [[MachoMachoMan Bruce Willis]].
* Dr. Terwilliker in ''Film/The5000FingersOfDrT''. Even though he's intent on marrying Bartholomew's mother, you can clearly see he's very swishy. Especially during the ''fabulous'' dress-up song.
* Herod in the original movie production of ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar''. He lounges in a swimming pool with two attractive women and two male servants, sings in a higher register than the other male characters and does a very camp dance during his song.
* Subverted by Adrian "Ozymandias" Veidt in ''Film/{{Watchmen}}''. The screenwriter and director were convinced he was gay, the actor who played him suggested he was probably at least bisexual in an interview, and there's an EasterEgg in a shot of his computer desktop that may or may not have a gay PornStash. He's also extremely well-dressed, to the point of garishness in some scenes, and has a ''fabulous'' androgynous haircut bordering on PowerHair. He's also a ruthlessly efficient martial artist, a hard-nosed businessman, and has terse, rather dry and dour speech patterns and body language. He might not be quite StraightGay, but there is nothing mincing or effeminate about him in the slightest.
* ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'' has Parvi Largo as a minor villain. He is foppish, flamboyant and painfully vain; he dresses in replica vintage Italian suits, and speaks with an outrageous Italian accent for no good reason. He's also a serial rapist who wears the face of a beautiful woman over his own.
* Park Chang-yi in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadTheWeird'' is a murderous, psychopathic prettyboy with anachronistically fabulous clothes and grooming. Overlaps with AgentPeacock, as he's the most feared assassin in Manchuria and every bit as deadly as he is pretty.
* Prince Edward in ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'', a foppish, homosexual weakling who cares more about new clothes and playing with his boy toy than conquering Scotland. (His RealLife analogue, Edward II, actually was gay, but not an example: besides the problems with calling real people villains, the real Edward II was interested in traditionally manly, outdoorsy pastimes like sports and, unusually given his station in life, manual labor.) The main villain, Longshanks, is a manly man.
* Lord Cutler Beckett from ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' has elements of this as well, though [[TruthInTelevision a lot of real life aristocrats of 18th century acted like that]] so it's purely canon instead of being for just the heck of it.
* ''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace''
** The alien commander Eros. In the words of the Rifftrax guys: "He makes Carson Kressley look butch!" The actor's name was ''Dudley Manlove''. Yes, that was his real name. Poor guy.
** Eros' superior, however, out-swishes him by a mile. He was played by a guy with the ordinary name (and not-so-ordinary nickname) of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunny_Breckinridge John "Bunny" Breckinridge]], but his lifestyle topped having the surname "Manlove" by ''ten'' miles.
* "Sally Can't Dance" in ''Film/ConAir''. How effeminate is he? Well, his nickname is "Sally," he refers to men as a separate gender, he [[CrossDresser wears dresses]], and in his final confrontation with the hero, Nicolas Cage's character winds up for a punch, visibly reconsiders, and slaps Sally in the face instead.
* Percy in ''Film/TheGreenMile''. Fittingly, the casts' Southern accents make it sound a lot like "pussy."
* [[TheCaligula Emperor Commodus]] from ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'' is quite foppish and effeminate, especially compared to the extremely manly [[TheHero Maximus]].
* Willard Gates, the villain with an aversion to being exposed to violence, in ''Film/ThisGunForHire''.
* Watson from ''Razor Sharpe'', although, given his [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent unfathomable accent]], it's anyone's guess whether this is intentional or just the result of dodgy acting.
* Aro, the head vampire in the film version of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', due to Creator/MichaelSheen [[HamAndCheese simply not giving a shit]].
-->[[Podcast/RiffTrax Is he being sarcastic, or just]] ''[[Podcast/RiffTrax flaming]]''
* Jean Girard from ''Film/TalladegaNightsTheBalladOfRickyBobby'' is a comedy version of this trope. He even talks about his husband. And he raises horses - who are also gay. However, [[ManlyGay subverted]] in that he's the best racer on the circuit for a time - and he puts Ricky in a humiliating arm lock in order to force him to admit that French ''crepes'' are delicious.
* They're not the main villains, but in ''Film/VanishingPoint'' Kowalski picks up two stereotypical gay hitchhikers who attempt to rob him, and he beats them up.
* Darren "Wall Street" Bettencourt of ''Film/TheTransporter'' spends his first appearance trying to feel Frank up, while talking about how much "I like him." He's got the limp wrists, the LargeHam gestures, the pretty boy look, and the mincing. And then he reveals that he's actually TheDragon and a fairly nasty BloodKnight who wants to fight Frank to the death. [[HiddenBadass Anyone else see that coming]]?
* From the 70s film ''The Eiger Sanction'', there's a fellow called Miles Mellough, whose sole purpose in the movie is to embody this trope. He has a lap dog named 'Faggot', wears flamboyant clothing and makes off-colour jokes about rape in a very sissy voice. At no time is he a credible threat (we're supposed to believe he was a crack commando?!) and his death is devoid of any interesting fight: Eastwood leaves him to die in the desert midway through the film.
* Creator/CharlesLaughton (who was gay) as Emperor Nero in ''The Sign of the Cross''.
* The villain in the Creator/ChowYunFat film ''Film/FullContact'' is openly gay and wants to fuck Chow almost as much as he wants to kill him.
* The Riddler as played by Creator/JimCarrey in ''Film/BatmanForever''. Not just ''incredibly'' camp, but also AmbiguouslyGay for Bruce Wayne.
* Mr. Ho, TheDragon from ''Film/WayOfTheDragon'', is quite effeminate, especially when he feels Tang Lung's stomach and says, "Ohhhh, what rippling muscles!"
%%* [[spoiler: Castor/Zuse]] from ''Film/TronLegacy''.
* Valentine from ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' has a lisp, dresses fairly casually (and when he DOES go formal, is very foppish), and is sickened by acts of murder. ''Direct'' murder, that is. He's fine with having people kill each other.
* Ronald, in ''Film/{{Squatters}}'', is first introduced in a long red wig and he lisps his way throughout the movie.
* Sebastian Valmont in ''Film/CruelIntentions''. Not gay, certainly, but soft-voiced and [[{{Wangst}} whiny]]. The clincher? His stepsister promises him that if he succeeds in an evil task she's giving him, ''she'll'' fuck ''him''.
* In Abel Gance's biopic of ''[[UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte Napoleon]]'', Gance himself steals the show as Louis Antoine de Saint-Just. Foppish and effete in his dangling earrings, and described as the most feared man in the French Revolution other authors have called him the Terror's "Angel of Death".
* In ''Bollywood/BombayVelvet'', Kaizad Khambatta is married, but uses his wife for honey-trapping his enemies, and seems to prefer the company of other men and seems very jealous of Johnny's romance with Rosie.

* Emperor Ublaz Mad Eyes of ''{{Literature/Redwall}}''. His evil plan, which results in the slaughter and misery of hundreds of creatures by his followers, is to get hold of the ArtifactOfDeath. The Artifact Of Death consists of six ''pink pearls'' which he wants to wear in a crown. They don't even have any magical powers (except for bringing horrible luck on everyone who owns them, but he apparently doesn't know that), he just wants a pink pearl crown. Yeah.... He also wears silk robes and perfume and paints his nails.
* Zhong Ye, the eunuch sorcerer BigBad in the young adult novel ''The Silver Phoenix: Beyond The Kingdom of Xia''. However, while he is dandified and creepy, he's portrayed as a depraved ''heterosexual'' - and the heroine is the reincarnation of his lost love.
* Arguably [[CorruptChurch The Pardoner]] from ''Literature/TheCanterburyTales''. He's a rather effeminate guy, and there's a scene where the Host, a BoisterousBruiser makes a threat which could be loosely paraphrased as "I'd cut off your balls if you had any."
%%* Percy Wetmore from Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/TheGreenMile''.
* Valentine Wolfe, evil space aristocrat junkie extraordinaire, from the ''Literature/{{Deathstalker}}'' books. He's more outrageously decadent than feminine, but he does wear makeup and have a rather {{camp}} way of expressing himself at times, while remaining an absolute unholy terror in the highest echelons of the DeadlyDecadentCourt.
--> '''[[ChurchMilitant Vicar]] Kassar:''' You look like a degenerate. Wipe that paint off your face.\\
'''Valentine:''' ''Lick it off.''
* The [[EunuchsAreEvil eunuch]] [[AristocratsAreEvil Lord]] [[EvilChancellor Varys]] from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' looks like this trope to a T - wears fancy clothes, indulges in perfumes, swishes quite primly and [[GigglingVillain giggles constantly]]. [[spoiler:And then subverts this trope, being a MasterOfDisguise and a MasterActor, playing up the "sissy" aspect because that's what people expect to see - behind the perfume and giggles he's a {{Determinator}} who isn't afraid to [[WhatTheHellHero get all up]] [[HannibalLecture in the hero's grill]]. Possibly the top [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] in a series notorious for its GambitPileup. ''Damn.'']]
** Similarly, Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish, whose start of darkness began when he got savagely beaten in a duel by a more masculine hero in a love triangle over Catelyn Stark.
* Lord Pumphrey, a.k.a "Pumps" in ''Literature/{{Sharpe}}''. Variously known as "the molly," "that woman," and believed to have [[FoeYay a crush on the hero.]] He is also one of the most effective {{Manipulative Bastard}}s in the series, even mocking Sharpe to his face when confronted. He is, thus far, a well-earned KarmaHoudini.
* The villain of German novel ''Der Eiskristall'' is an unusual variation - it is implied that he turned to evil partly because he was [[FreudianExcuse bullied]] about his [[{{Elfeminate}} feminine looks]]. While he is trying to assert his masculinity with extreme violence, he is not helping his case with the HoYay he has with one of the male protagonists.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The eunuch Lord Varys subverts this trope brilliantly. Really, when everyone already knows you're a eunuch, what the devil's the point of wasting time embarrassing yourself by trying to look butch? Raised by actors, he knows how to play the role properly to keep the Queen and her council guessing. Even MagnificentBastard Petyr Baelish doesn't quite know what he's up to. It's mostly an act-when he gets truly angry or serious he drops his usual polite, facetious tone and his voice becomes considerably lower, first seen when he delivers quite a hardass WhatTheHellHero to Ned Stark when trying to convince him to give a false confession and demands him to serve the realm, or when he threatens Tyrion in Season 2 and Littlefinger in Season 3.
* Rumpelstiltskin (portrayed by Robert Carlyle) in ''Series/OnceUponATime''. Especially with his Michael Jackson squeal. Downplayed in later seasons, as not at all present in his modern "Mr. Gold" persona.
%%* Dr. Smith from ''Series/LostInSpace''.
* Parodied in an episode of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', involving Special Investigator Lemming of the British Dental Association. Mad Dentist SuperVillain "The Big Cheese" is played by Creator/GrahamChapman in one of his more flamboyant performances.
-->"Flopsy's dead and never called me 'mother'."
* Averted in ''Series/{{Kings}}''. Prince Jack is both a homosexual and a villain but he's also a soldier who commands the respect of his men and is fully capable beating a guy to a pulp in a bar brawl.
* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'':
** Captain John Hart is the ultimate aversion of this trope. Violent, evil, snarky, and can beat the crap out of anyone you care to name.
** His good counterpart, TheHero Captain Jack Harkness was once described as a homophobic TV viewer's nightmare. An arsekicking, quipping queer. Bonus, his actor is gay, despite the character being 'omnisexual'.
* Although he's definitely heterosexual, as far as mannerisms go Chancellor Dongalor in ''Series/KrodMandoonAndTheFlamingSwordOfFire'' practically floats out the window. Considering how snarky he is about the actual gays in the show you have to wonder what he's repressing.
** And of course he's played by an openly gay actor.
* Upon hearing a historian's theory that Adolf Hitler was gay, The Tina Fey/Jimmy Fallon incarnation of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'''s Weekend Update introduced a recurring character Gay Hitler, played by Chris Kattan.
* In Creator/TheBBC's 1960s adaptation of ''Literature/TheThreeMusketeers'', Rochefort is shown to be an incompetent fighter (he falls on his arse from surprise when d'Artagnan challenges him into a duel) and he's seen crying after a minor injury. He's also wearing very light-coloured clothing and spends more time adjusting his shoes and swishing his cloak than doing any actual menacing.
* Nevel in ''Series/ICarly''. "Mother, run a bath!".
* Meemy [[SpellMyNameWithAnS or thereabouts]] from ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger''. Imperious from ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' was less so, though little attempt was made to hide the mannerisms (reminiscent of [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Queen Machina]], actually) and when he first took that form, he called it "beautiful." Both versions are pretty non-flirtatious, though, and certifiably able to reduce you to very small smithereens.
* Jim [[spoiler: Moriarty]] from ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''. He's dressed to the nines and can be outright flaming, although he says he's [[spoiler: only playing gay]].
* Goodness gracious, Terry Karrens from ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'' is rather effeminate for someone with an OedipusComplex.
* Ratallack of ''Series/TheShadowLine''. He's an [[CampGay extremely camp]] {{Gayngster}} who's ruthless enough that he'll [[spoiler:order the death of his own boyfriend to improve his position]].
* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': James Gillies is a recurring villain who murders people ForTheEvulz (and later to get revenge) and to prove that he's smarter than Detective William Murdoch. He's somewhat effeminate, soft-spoken, occasionally wears women's clothes (he did it to disguise himself first, but later admits he likes it), and he used dolls in one of his schemes.
* One MonsterOfTheWeek in ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' called the Octophantom didn't look very feminine, but he certainly ''acted'' that way. He was so ''vain'' that Billy was able to distract him by getting him to pause - mid-battle, no less - to admire himself in a mirror, and enable the heroes to gain the drop on him.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** In the televised version of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E2InvasionOfTheDinosaurs Invasion of the Dinosaurs]]" by Malcolm Hulke, Professor Whitaker is a fairly standard MadScientist, but he gets [[AdaptationalSexuality adapted into this]] in the Target novelisation -- he {{Squee}}s over Creator/OscarWilde and Creator/NoelCoward, giggles "girlishly", admires the Doctor's physique, and so on.
** The Cybermen are this from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E5RevengeOfTheCybermen Revenge of the Cybermen]]" onwards until the end of the Classic series -- once emotionless robots now portrayed with limp wrists, lisping voices and hilariously horrible amounts of mincing. Not helped by the tight silver bodysuits and the Doctor pointing out they get killed with "glitterguns" -- a bit {{Disco}} even by the standards of an episode from 1974.
** Mehendri Solon in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E5TheBrainOfMorbius The Brain of Morbius]]" wears a lot of fancy jewellery, is hugely misogynistic, spends his time [[MadArtist making 'models' of striking male faces]] and appears to find the Doctor very attractive (attractive enough to want to [[OrganTheft steal his head]] for a horrible FrankensteinsMonster, at any rate), even flirting with him in some scenes as much as 1975 would allow. Note the models resemble Classical sculpture and Solon is the name of an ancient Greek politician.
** Mad gardener Harrison Chase in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E6TheSeedsOfDoom The Seeds of Doom]]" is camp, fay, fastidious, WickedCultured, wears fashionable clothes and black leather gloves and 'could play all day in [his] green cathedral'. He also ties men down, forcibly converts them into plants, and then brings them plant food (chunks of raw meat) to eat while they're in bed.
** One of the flaws Creator/DouglasAdams noted about his script for "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E6Shada Shada]]", which he [[CreatorBacklash strongly disliked]], was that he'd written the villain Skagra in this way, which he admitted was lazy on his part and neither funny nor frightening, especially in comparison to the dynamic and interesting villains in his much preferred script "City Of Death". He is RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap in both the Creator/BigFinish adaptation (in which he gets a ridiculously [[LargeHam hammy]] performance from Creator/AndrewSachs) and the 2012 novelisation, which makes him androgynous and unexpressive as well as fleshing out his backstory and personality a ''lot''.
** Turlough is introduced in a public school (and keeps the uniform), an aesthete, and his darkness is portrayed as him being sensitive, fey and cowardly. He does do a HeelFaceTurn, though, and keeps up the camp.
* Cobblepot is more than a little fey on ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' and sometimes attempts to be flirtatious with Gordon. He's prissy, sycophantic, and [[SharpDressedMan loves his formal wear]]...and a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]], ruthless killer.
* A ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent'' episode gives us Dr. Roger Stern, a prissy, cultured surgeon who is well aware that he's prissy and compensates by doing terrible things to women.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Crowley spouts DoubleEntendre like its going out of style, is fond of calling people "darling", "sweetie", "kitten", "handsome", etc. and is [[WickedCultured smartly dressed and cultured]]. He's also a DepravedBisexual who will kiss men to make deals with them and in season 11 he possesses a women who has sex with her husband in a foursome with another couple before killing them all.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Loki from Myth/NorseMythology fits this. Several incidents present him as unmanly (particularly when he was impregnated by a horse), and the contrast with the manly hero plays out in his relationship with Thor. However, pre-FaceHeelTurn by Loki, he and Thor are more like SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan[=/=]VitriolicBestBuds.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* The effeminate heel, GorgeousGeorge, is an archetype in wrestling.
* Adrian Adonis' gimmick went from tough biker to flamboyant, effeminate gay. Actually, flamboyant is an understatement. In reality, Adonis was given the gay "Adorable Adrian" gimmick as a punishment after he failed to act on Wrestling/VinceMcMahon's request to lose weight (Adonis was pudgy, and Vince has a well-documented preference for chiseled, muscular physiques). No one expected Adonis to embrace the gimmick the way he did. He even kept it after he left the WWF in 1987.
* In the territory days, Wrestling/ExoticAdrianStreet.
* On the managerial side of things we have Wrestling/JimCornette, best known for cowering with Wrestling/TheMidnightExpress and crying about his mother up until a video of him getting out of his car to yell at a Dairy Queen worker who did not bring him the meal he ordered started circulating amongst wrestling fans, turning him into a {{memetic badass}}.
* [[Wrestling/RickMartel Rick "The Model" Martel]], who incidentally feuded with an {{ambiguously gay}} but ''not'' sissy Wrestling/ShawnMichaels
* Subversions: Big Dick Johnson is kind of a sissy, but he's never portrayed as villainous; Wrestling/{{Goldust}} is pretty effeminate, but he's definitely ''not'' a sissy.
* Lacey, a straight woman, later described the early advances of her eventual boyfriend Wrestling/JimmyJacobs as being "gay". Jacobs had always been something of a dork but at some point he decided he was "tough", so tough he no longer had to do anything considered "tough" and would in fact go out of his way to do the opposite of tough, such as stripping down and cuddling with a picture of his future girlfriend while singing her praises. Jacobs was such an example it made the JerkJock Wrestling/ColtCabana (who the fans were happy to see Homicide attempt to murder) into a baby {{face}} just for opposing him.
* [[Wrestling/CodyRhodes "Dashing" Cody Rhodes]], before he TookALevelInBadass. He gave grooming tips and his BerserkButton was [[NotInTheFace being hit in the face.]]
* Wrestling/TylerBreeze, who's billed from a different location depending on the season. His Titantron is a live feed of his phone's camera taking selfies.

* Mr. Gently Benevolent in ''Radio/BleakExpectations'' epitomises and parodies this trope whilst being AmbiguouslyGay.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'':
** Fulgrim, following his FaceHeelTurn, starts wearing make-up and perfumes and increasingly lurid clothing. Subverted in that he's still a PhysicalGod: the effect is less sissy and more insane.
** A lot of Slaanesh's male servants fall under this trope, even the eight-foot-tall [[SuperSoldier Space Marines]] and [[TheHorde Warriors of Chaos]]. Androgynous, fond of garish colors, silks, and perfumes... and [[AxCrazy utterly lethal]].

* King Herod is often portrayed this way in ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar''.
* Farquaad is played up as this in ''Theatre/ShrekTheMusical''.
* Herbert from ''Theatre/TanzDerVampire''. While the degree of his villainy is debatable and highly dependent on the actor, Herbert still remains a clingy, aggressive and bloodthirsty vampire. A VERY flamboyant bloodthirsty vampire. He's also the responsible for Alfred's nightmare during the "Carpe Noctem" dance sequence.
* Don Dorcha from ''Film/{{Lord of the Dance|1997}}'' is a subversion. You'd expect a villain who only expresses himself through dance to have at least a shade of sissy, but Don Dorcha and his army are never anything less than foreboding and menacing.
* ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'':
** Lord Voldemort is a NeatFreak who can't sleep knowing there are clothes just lying around in his bedroom, and a fan of romantic comedies like ''Film/ShesAllThat''.
** Professor Quirrell is even more of one, to the point that [[EveryoneHasStandards even Voldemort calls him a sissy]].
** {{Inverted|Trope}} in the sequel, where Dolores Umbridge is the epitome of macho. Dumbledore even mistakes her for a man initially.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'': [[PsychoForHire Vega]] [[TheFightingNarcissist is obsessed with his looks]], which is why he wears a ceramic mask to protect his face when he fights. He's also effeminate regards anything he deems "ugly" with contempt. Most of all, [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy he hates women.]] At least, ''he did'', until Creator/{{Capcom}} decided to change his image a bit to dispel [[{{Fanon}} the rumors that Vega was gay.]] Nowadays, he regards Chun Li as his equal, in terms of beauty, and acknowledges Cammy's beauty as well.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. Kefka may seem like one of these at first, but it soon becomes apparent that he is [[MonsterClown much,]] [[OmnicidalManiac much]] worse.
** Sephiroth from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is a partial example, having an OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous appearance, menacing and manipulating young men and being very obsessed with his mother - but he isn't particularly camp, and is regarded in universe as a masculine paragon.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. [[ViewerGenderConfusion GOOD GOD]], KUJA. So much so he's the page image on ViewerGenderConfusion! Taken UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia|Final Fantasy}}'', where his main form of offense is ''slapping people in the face with giant balls.''
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI''. [[spoiler:[[AristocratsAreEvil Kam'lanaut]] is more than just a little fey and more than just a little evil.]]
** The omnipresence of this trope led to people speculating that [[CampGay Mayakov]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI: Wings of the Goddess'' was going to turn out to be working with the villains. In the end, [[spoiler:[[AvertedTrope he wasn't]]!]]
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' gives us Ardyn, a grandiloquent, camp, flashily-dressed, magenta-haired middle-aged man who is worryingly fixated on a bunch of handsome young men in their early 20s. Noctis even regards him in-universe as a creepy old man at first.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' gives us [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Duelhorn#The_Night_Dancer the Night Dancer]] and his troupe, a group of crossdressing [[LizardFolk bangaa]].
** Genesis from ''Final Fantasy: VideoGame/CrisisCore''. Flamboyant hand gestures? Check. Campy {{Bishonen}} appearance? Check. [[MostAnnoyingSound Endless recital of pretentious poetry]]? ''Oh yeah''.
* And then the lovely people over at Square gave us ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', and the BigBad of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'', Marluxia. This is a [[{{Bishonen}} MAN]] (better get that straight right away) who's looks would put [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Sephiroth]] to shame. He has long, [[HairColors pink hair]], his WeaponOfChoice is a Pink SinisterScythe, and his unique villainous ability is [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway FLOWERS]]. CherryBlossoms none the less... (The manga took this power one step further and had Marluxia scatter sakura petals with every move he made.) That, in Japanese mythology, cherry blossoms represents death, and in western mythology the scythe is the signature tool of TheGrimReaper, so it might not be so strange that Marluxia, despite all the aforementioned sissyness, still manages to retain most of his manliness.
* [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Ash Crimson]] easily falls under this trope with his flamboyant personality, flirtatious nature towards the male characters and his feminine looks. Well, at least [[spoiler:[[GoodAllAlong if he was evil to begin with]]]].
* One of the generals in ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors 6'' matches this trope perfectly. He belonged to the mostly-evil Wei Kingdom, fought wearing a skirt and makeup, was obsessed with beauty, and in the Sima Yi ending, he's the first to join Sima Yi in backstabbing the WellIntentionedExtremist, Cao Cao. That general's name? Zhang He.
* ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'':
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''. Alfred. Ashford. Granted, his compulsion to dress up in women's clothing is due to a [[Film/{{Psycho}} Norman Bates-esque]] desire to emulate his [[spoiler:sister]], but he's still prancing around in a dress and giggling.
** Salazar in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', who's a wrinkly, [[YoungerThanTheyLook 20-year-old]] giggling midget dressed like Napoleon. In stark contrast to his CoDragons Mendez and Krauser, he also shows zero signs of any badassery and at one point even runs off crying after getting his hand stabbed; he only even becomes a boss fight by virtue of letting himself get absorbed into giant Plagas blob and [[OneWingedAngel transforming into a tentacle monster]].
** Morpheus Duvall of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilDeadAim''. Yeah, it's a guy. Even harder to tell when his transformation has breasts and built in high heels. He's also totally vain and obsessed with his own beauty.
* ''Franchise/MetalGear''
** DepravedBisexual Vamp combines knife fighting, knife throwing, and ''flamenco-dancing'' into his own personal combat form. And he's a subversion; it ''works'' so well that he only seems feminine in hindsight, not ''as'' he's slaughtering a team of Navy SEALS or going one on one with a cyborg ninja. Oddly, this stops short in one instance; you'd expect anyone who sees him get up, swishing around the whole time, after being ''shot in the head'' to be more terrified of his regeneration than mocking of his body language, but this only happens when the people around him are either glad he's back or already know what will happen.
** And then there's [[MadBomber Fatman]] from the same QuirkyMinibossSquad, who has [[http://i33.tinypic.com/309o7l2.png lovely taste in nail polish.]]
* [[DepravedHomosexual Isaac]] from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaCurseOfDarkness'', who wears an extremely skimply outfit, acts incredibly effeminate and alternates between flirting with the main characters and [[PsychoForHire gleefully attempting to gruesomely murder them]].
* Valtome from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn]]'', anyone? Or is he just androgynous and prone to creepy giggles?
* The BigBad from ''VideoGame/NoOneLivesForever 2''. Although like the many outrageous stereotypes, he is PlayedForLaughs.
* General Lionwhyte from ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend''. His hair is so fabulous, he can actually use it to fly! Also a nicely done shot/shoutout to all hair metal everywhere. It's easy to forget Dragonforce doesn't really fly around on the backs of dragons because they have such FAAAABULOUS hair.
* Emperor Dondera, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/HolyUmbrella'' definitely qualifies. The fact that the eyes of his chest mouth resemble breasts only leads to further ViewerGenderConfusion. Incidentally [[spoiler: during the short time he's in your party, his attacks are [[RealMenWearPink ridiculously powerful]]]].
* The Marquis du Singe from ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', a fey and foppish MadScientist with an outrageous French accent.
* Toyed with a bit in ''VideoGame/VagrantStory''. Sydney seems like a pretty standard twinky Squaresoft villain at first, questionable outfit and everything. It turns out [[spoiler: he's not a villain. And he's really, really badass]]. Though he ''does'' briefly put his hand on Ashley's knee during the Atrium scene.
* Father Balder in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' certainly acts the part with his soft, preening voice, and his fashion sense is atrociously flamboyant (a dead albino peacock as a stole, a gold half-mask, and a monocle earring, among other things). Underneath it all, though, [[AgentPeacock he's also a nigh-godlike Lumen Sage]].
* ''{{Videogame/Bayonetta 2}}'' introduces The Prophet, [[spoiler:Loptr]] who, despite being a tall and well built man, wears a sheer blue cloak, powder blue lip-stick, and barely speaks above a gentle whisper. [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/bayonetta/images/9/99/1419071801657.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/640?cb=20141222015658 Concept art]] shows this was once going to be even more extreme (notice the flowing gown and Music/LadyGaga hairbow), and at one point was even [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/bayonetta/images/b/b6/1419071586696.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/553?cb=20141222015613 planned to be a hermaphrodite]].
* Vyers from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea|HourOfDarkness}}''. A narcissistic, aristocratic demon with a flamboyant attitude and a french accent. True, none of the rest of the cast take him seriously, but he is at least a Midboss. [[spoiler:It's an act, though. He's applying ObfuscatingStupidity from the moment you first see him, and his true identity is a reincarnation of King Kirchevskoy a.k.a. ''Laharl's father''.]]
%%* Razer in ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter''.
* Cumore from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', [[CampGay Dist]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', and [[BigBad Yggdrasil]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. To be fair, though, that last one is a ''lot'' more effective than most of the bad guys mentioned here, in no small part due to his {{Magnificent Bastard}}ry and an EvilPlan that [[XanatosGambit benefits him regardless of its outcome.]] as well as his eventual crossing of a pretty big MoralEventHorizon, [[FashionVictimVillain even with his 80's disco suit]].
* ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'''s [[TheCaligula King Croacus IV]] is a gigantic, sentient rose wearing makeup, and constantly talks about "beauuuuuuuty!" and has some sort of VerbalTic about saying "oooooooo-weeeeeee-oooooooo!" He's also responsible for kidnapping a race of cavemen and enslaving them to work in his mines, digging up more jewels to add to his palace. [[spoiler: He was actually driven insane after drinking water [[GreenAesop polluted by said cavemen.]]]]
%%* Cecile Newcastle in ''VideoGame/WinBack''.
* Lord Ghirahim from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''. His heart is full of rainbows! Also, he wears skintight clothing that only barely censors his nipples, he seems to be wearing white lipstick, his short white hair hangs down over his eye, and he enjoys approaching Link in molestacular poses. However, he has serious MoodSwinger tendencies, he's a demon (lord) with a blade, and the overall effect is less "sissy" and more "completely balls-out bonkers." Some fans have said he reminds them of a male Music/LadyGaga.
* Sergei from ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath''. Effeminate looking, crazy, constantly relaying about the beauty of things, dresses like a drag queen, and has Creator/SteveBlum doing his best evil [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Leeron]] voice.
%%* Yoshiaki and Sorin in ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara.''
%%* Lord Zur from ''VideoGame/GuardianHeroes''.
* Shadow Kanji in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' decides to reflect Kanji's insecurity about his [[RealMenWearPink girly hobbies]] (and possibly his being AmbiguouslyGay) by dressing in nothing but a bath towel and acting as CampGay as possible. And let's not even get into when he transforms...
%%* Evil from ''VideoGame/CustomRobo''.
* Charles from ''VideoGame/PennyArcadeAdventures'', lampshaded mercilessly: ''SISSY BOSS FIGHT!''
* [[spoiler: Princess Kenny]] from ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth''. The fact that the FinalBoss is [[spoiler: a 10-year-old boy [[WholesomeCrossdresser dressed up as a pretty princess]]]] only adds to the game's intentional weirdness.
* The Vykkers from ''[[VideoGame/{{Oddworld}} Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee]]'' don't look effeminate, looking like a weird centaur version of TheGrays, but they speak with flaming, shrill voices.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Miguel Kurashiki in ''VisualNovel/RoseGunsDays'' fits the trope to a T, with a strong emphasis on the [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy mysogynistic]] part. He also has a close relationship and plenty of HoYay moments with his boss Caleb. Season 2 gives him a good deal of CharacterDevelopment though.
* ''VisualNovel/TogainuNoChi'': Arbitro swishes about in a feather boa, has a cleanliness fetish, collects statues of pretty boys....
* From ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** Richard Wellington is a mean of wealth, taste and art. He himself is a great [[spoiler:con]] artist. Oh, and [[AlwaysMurder a murderer, of course.]]
** Subverted with Jean Armstrong. He's sissy all right, but not evil, just desperate because of how deep in debt he is.
** [[spoiler:Kristoph Gavin]] pays a lot of attention to his looks, and even wears nail polish. That doesn't stop him from being downright terrifying.
** FINALLY, Florent L'Belle would LIKE to point out that the only VILLAINS here are those UNABLE to comprehend his MAGNIFICENT beauty.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/{{TOME}}'' has the shapeshifter playing Actor Ravenfreak who generally looks more like a guy stole a female character's gear and it was too small.
* The Blue Laser Commander in the WebAnimation/CheatCommandos [[ShowWithinAShow section]] of ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' has a high-pitched, screechy voice, similar to [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero Cobra Commander]]. And though his terrorist organization has many plots for world domination, for whatever reason, between the Commandos and their own ineptitude, [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything few are ever actually seen]].
* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' has this interpretation of Lucius the Eternal, a DepravedBisexual with a disturbingly high-pitched voice and CampGay mannerisms that occasionally resemble those of a high-school girl shrieking about a boy band. As with all Slaaneshi champions, you're lucky if all he does is kill you.
* ''WebAnimation/NomadOfNowhere'' has Don Paragon, dandy, pompous, and flamboyant ruler of The Oasis, who forces people to pay a fortune just to get in so they can ''buy'' water and other goods from the only water source for miles and is the one trying to catch the titular character.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Keith Feddyg from ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'', a minor villain from [[BreatherEpisode Book 4]] and BigBad of book 6, probably the most blatant example of a DepravedBisexual in T's comics, his first arc centering on a sex cult he created.
* Gerald, one of Nanase's ex-boyfriends from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is all over the place on this trope (though he's more of a Sissy {{Jerkass}} than an outright villain.) He's very muscular (in fact, he's downright massive in one flashback,) but he wears androgynous goth clothing with eye shadow and lipstick. However, it's quickly revealed that he does this deliberately to get people to give him hell for it so he can pick fights with them. And when he first shows up, the people he's antagonizing are three girls (including Nanase) and an [[{{Bishonen}} androgynous-looking guy.]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* This seems to be a common theme on WebVideo/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses:
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic. He's weak, assholish, completely and irreparably fucked up and frequently ScreamsLikeALittleGirl, as well as preferring toppy ActionGirl women so much that {{Chickification}} is [[HairTriggerTemper one of his many]] BerserkButton triggers, but his less-than-masculine aspects are just part of who he is. A bit of a subversion since he's really a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold good guy at heart]] and depending on your perspective is either an AntiHero or AntiVillain.
** WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses, who couples the villainy with being a complete slut. Attempts to come across as WickedCultured but once you see through the façade, you realize he qualifies, especially in episodes 61-62 where he has JerkassWoobie moments.
** WebVideo/BennettTheSage has moments of this even though he tries to hide it with TestosteronePoisoning.
** WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob has moments of this, overlapping with WickedCultured as he's a parody of TrueArtIsAngsty critics.
* Discussed by WebVideo/TheAmazingAtheist in his review of ''Film/{{Hercules|2014}}'', in which Scotty says that it was obvious that King Eurystheus would turn out to be evil because he had two pet peacocks and acted slightly effeminate. [[spoiler:He was right.]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The Lepodopterist from [[Creator/VanBeurenStudios "Molly Moo Cow and the Butterflies".]] He's not even evil, but a giddy, cowardly fool who prances around and flicks his wrist, and brags about how he'd rather catch butterflies than hunt for tigers or lions. The only reason he's even a villain is because he's [[ObliviouslyEvil oblivious]] to the fact that catching the (sentient) butterflies is robbing them of their freedom.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' has Jabba the Hutt's uncle, Ziro, whose voice was allegedly based on Truman Capote's.
* Stewie Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', especially in the earlier seasons. Not surprising, since he's largely a {{parody}} of various villain tropes.
* {{Satan}} is done this way so often it's now [[FlamingDevil a trope of its own]].
** Him from ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''.
** The Red Guy from ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken''. They're almost identical: swishy gay depictions of Satan. They met once in a commercial to hit on WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo and plan to take over Creator/CartoonNetwork.
** The Robot Devil from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''.
** ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' -- except for the fact that ''South Park'''s {{Satan}} is more of a ManlyGay AntiVillain...
** In ''WesternAnimation/GodTheDevilAndBob'', The Devil is rather flamboyant, incredibly prissy, and prone to occasional crossdressing and singing showtunes, as well as being very physical when talking to Bob.
* Jack Spicer in ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown''. Frequently screams like a girl, to. Is even called a sissy in one episode, and accidentally declares himself Queen of The Black Vipers, prompting looks from everyone.
* ComicBook/LexLuthor's pet iguana Ignatius from ''WesternAnimation/KryptoTheSuperdog'', even though he had a crush on a female iguana in one episode.
* Senor Senior, Junior is the ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' variant of this, [[CampStraight as metrosexual as it gets]], overly concerned with hair care products, boy bands and far more [[TheDandy interested in looking good]] than doing bad.
%%* Professor Hinkle from ''WesternAnimation/FrostyTheSnowman''.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', Endsville is plagued by a nasalmancer, a wizard who practices nose magic. ("It's not a very popular school of wizardry," says Grim.) The guy wears wizard robes that look like dresses and usually uses his skills to sell women's cosmetics.
%%* From ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'': Skeletor.
* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'':
** Starscream moves up and down a Sliding Scale of Girlishness and Childishness depending on the series and translation, but is consistently bitchy. [[ShesAManInJapan Some have mistakenly made him a girl]], [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated some]] [[OppositeSexClone have given him a female clone]], some have made him an outright giggling fool and some have even made him a somewhat serious air commander... with a childish attitude and a girlfriend to complain to about how his lord and master mistreats him. Expect every incarnation to be a narrow-waisted, whiny, flighty asshole prone to [[TheStarscream backstabbing]] his lord and master for insults and ambition. ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' is one of the most extreme examples, where Starscream is given an ''extremely'' feminine body shape and CombatStilettos.
** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' gives us Knock Out, a metrosexual Decepticon who puts great concern with his vehicle form. WatchThePaintJob. Seriously, [[BerserkButton don't scratch his paint job,]] [[ChainsawGood he has a giant buzz-saw.]] (He's still much more masculine looking than Starscream, though.)
--->'''Knock Out''': I like the way I look in steel-belted radials.\\
'''Knock Out:''' I'm not only an automobile, I'm also an automobile enthusiast.
* ''Franchise/GIJoe''
** Cobra Commander, often described as a "faceless effeminate screechy man." Where other villains go into rages, Cobra Commander throws ''hissy fits''. His threat level seems to be based on how deep his voice is.
** The original Cobra Commander and the original Starscream were voiced by the same actor, Chris Latta. CC and Screamer obviously partnered in ''Franchise/GIJoe[=/=]Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' crossovers, comic and cartoon. Chris Latta himself was a bit bitchy and ended up being fired for all the trouble he caused the studio.
* The [[WickedWeasel Creeper]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animalia}}''. It's that super-lispy voice of his.
* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'' where there is a fey British scientist, who runs a place called herp haven that seems to want to do in the iguana Lizz and prances around a bit. [[spoiler: However, it turns out he's a good guy who runs a habitat for reptiles and was just trying to adjust Lizz's habitat.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Parodied by the Scoutmaster, played (in-universe, obviously) by Creator/PaulLynde, a villain from the [[DeconstructiveParody campy]] [[Series/{{Batman}} 1960s version]] of the ShowWithinAShow ''Radioactive Man''.
-->[adressing his mooks] ''Don't be afraid to use your nails, boys! Muahahaha!''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''
** The Wild Fop appears to be a member of the Guild of Calamitous Intent, in spite of his demonstrated "inappropriate behavior".
** The Monarch is a minor example, being a very skinny, flamboyant LargeHam and having a butterfly theme as his schtick (complete with wings on his uniform and the uniforms of his henchmen). It's somewhat lessened though by the fact that he has a girlfriend...[[CrossdressingVoices with a very deep, manly voice.]]
* [[MadGod Discord]] from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is not above jumping around and skating on soap like a ballet dancer. Or even occasionally cross-dressing.
* Roger from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is this trope. While not consistently villainous, he can frequently be found at the root of problems for the main characters, seeming to enjoy stirring up trouble, and other peoples' misery.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Raging Bender" has Bender become a pro wrestler, though after his popularity dies down, he's forced to become a crossdressing sissy heel called the Gender Bender.
* Played with a couple of times on ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'':
** In the episode "Jeepers Creepers Where Is Peepers", blatant anime parody villain Hookocho is an evil [[GalacticConqueror alien warlord]] that Dexter fights to save Dee Dee's imaginary world.
** In one MissingEpisode of "Dial M for Monkey", the [[ComicBook/SilverSurfer Silver Spooner]] is an effeminate expy, who is ultimately defeated by [[spoiler:distracting him with a claim that Judy Garland is present, allowing Monkey to hit him over the head with his own spoon]].
* Downplayed by Ares in the Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse. Although he's very much a PrettyBoy, he's all about war, weapons, and destruction.
* Lil' Gideon of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. He dresses very finely, obsessed with keeping his pompadour set (when considering ways to attack the Pines family, he dismisses summoning a rain of blood as it might mess up his hair), and is generally a wimp when he doesn't have the advantage. Mabel even considered him like a little sister she can do girly stuff with, like makeovers, at least before he outed himself to be evil.
* The Big Cheese from ''Anime/SamuraiPizzaCats'' pretty much embodies this trope, being a flamboyant, histronic mouse (fox in the original Japanese) who dresses in drag and likes to dance. Somewhat justified in that the original version actually WAS gay and openly flirted with his subordinates. For obvious reasons, that particular aspect was not present in the American version.
* The ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'' version of Justin Hammer has a light voice, enjoys fine cuisine, and takes a lot of pride in his appearance. He also invites Tony Stark to dinner.
* Captain [[NonIndicativeName Hero]] from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether''. His real name is "Leslie", he speaks in a shrieking girly voice with ever-increasing frequency, and he's not picky about ''any'' aspect of his romantic/sexual partners, including [[DepravedBisexual their gender]], [[BestialityIsDepraved their species]], [[ILoveTheDead whether they're alive]], [[BlackComedyRape whether or not they consent]], and [[IncestIsRelative whether or not they're related to him.]]
* Richard De Longpre in ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'' is a narcissistic, malevolent, incredibly self-centered gay man who brutally mistreats his life-partner Jeremy, to the point it's made clear that [[MaritalRapeLicense sex between them essentially consists of Richard raping Jeremy]]. It's an appallingly toxic relationship, but it gets even worse with TheReveal that Jeremy is actually ''straight'' and that Richard, having become infatuated with him upon their first meeting, took to [[StalkerWithACrush stalking him]] until Jeremy was forced to accept Richard's hand in marriage in order to protect the wife and children he already had!
* The phenomenally campy and [[LargeHam over-the-top]] Scaramouche the Merciless in Season 5 of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is a ''robotic'' version of this trope. He dresses in a purple trenchcoat with an orange scarf and magenta high-heels. His powers involve playing a flute to control rocks and ''scat-singing'' to control a levitating sword. He judges Jack's look like he was a fashion designer judging a model, and also addresses everyone as 'babe' or 'baby,' including both Jack and ''Aku''. He also destroyed an entire village and murdered its inhabitants solely to get Jack's attention.
