: A minor villain who appears early in a show.
- Straight: The first episode of The Adventures of Bob has our hero dealing with Captain Jack, a low rank minion of who controls a small town.
- Exaggerated: Jack is nothing but a school yard bully who happens to be a fan of Emperor Evulz.
- Downplayed: While Jack is a threat, later villains have more resources and greater plans.
- Justified: ???
- Inverted: ???
- Subverted: Captain Jack works to make up for his failure, and comes back with a higher rank more dangerous than ever.
- Double Subverted: ???
- Zig Zagged: ???
- Averted: ???
- Enforced: "We need a weak villain for Bob to beat up easily, to show how tough he is."
- Lampshaded: "I'm just the first villain, guys. I'm thus the weakest."
- Invoked: The army believes its enemies are weak, so they just send their weakest members to defeat them.
- Exploited: ???
- Defied: The true villain is Genre Savvy and decides to attack every potentially threatening Ragtag Bunch of Misfits at full force.
- Discussed: "The true villains never show up first. They send their minions first."
- Conversed: ???
