Some of the characters that Daniel Day-Lewis played DO look like these Dastardly Whiplash types, so kudos to the person that added an example.

Could Jack Spicer from Xiaolin Showdown be considered one of these, if only for the laugh?

Might we please change the name of this? I remember it being called something different that I liked more, but I can't remember what it was exactly, so I suggest "Squire Fate", a combination of Squire Hardman from Lovecraft's Sweet Ermengarde and Professor Fate from The Great Race. Dastardly Whiplash just doesn't seem to give the right impression of what the trope is.

"Dastardly Whiplash" gives a better impression than "Squire Hardman" (IMO). At the very least, the "Dastardly" part implies villainary, even if you don't know who the name is referencing. "Squire Hardman" is completely meaningless if you don't know the reference.

Does anyone know who drew the page image? It seems to show up a lot when people need a picture of a generic villain.
