Playing With / Depraved Bisexual

Basic Trope: A character's bisexuality underscores their villainous nature.
  • Straight: An evil bisexual is introduced and grosses everyone out because of their proclivities towards both genders.
  • Exaggerated: The villain parades around in fetish gear the entire film, nearly always with multiple men and women under their arm.
  • Downplayed:
    • A bisexual character is a bit promiscuous, morbid, and abnormal, but not outright evil.
    • The character's willingness to seduce both genders for his goals shows just how ruthless he is.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted:
    • The show's bisexuals are actually the least depraved of the whole cast.
    • A character's bisexuality underscores their heroic nature.
    • Alternatively, a character's asexuality underscores their villainous or heroic nature.
  • Subverted:
    • The bisexual villain turns out to be Good All Along.
    • The villain is The Vamp, and their bisexuality is an act.
  • Double Subverted:
  • Parodied: The bisexual character immediately tries to have sex with anyone who antagonizes them.
  • Zig Zagged: A bisexual character appears to be a hero and a villain at different points throughout the story.
  • Averted:
  • Enforced: "This isn't a gay show. If you're using bisexuals, either make them evil if they're men, or make them Fanservice fodder if they're female".
  • Lampshaded: "You're bisexual? Why am I not surprised?"
  • Invoked: The evil empire starts recruiting bisexuals into their armies.
  • Exploited: Characters looking for a villain who works behind the scenes consider a character's loud bisexuality a red flag.
  • Defied: "Look, what I do in bed is one thing, what I believe is right is another".
  • Discussed: "I should have known better... He/She's bisexual after all. Not a good omen in general".
  • Conversed: "Why is there so few sympathetic bisexuals on TV?" "Because it's too confusing for many people".
  • Deconstructed:
  • Reconstructed: Despite their initial refusal, the good characters eventually give the bisexual character a chance.
