* Gwynevere in ''Videogame/DarkSouls'' is depicted reclining on a sofa when you meet her in person.

* Gwynevere in ''Videogame/DarkSouls'' is depicted reclining on a sofa when you meet her in person. Justified in that [[spoiler:she's an illusion created by Gwyndolin, so having her laying down is significantly easier to make believable than sitting or standing]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'': The titular AcademyOfAdventure's headmaster is [[https://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1151 slouched in his chair]] and [[https://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=278 visibly bored]] when the Forest delegation visits, despite it being led by a PhysicalGod. Antimony comments on the deliberate rudeness, and a third party points out that the two factions have a long history of mutual disrespect.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/WonderWoman1942'': Aphrodite is seen resting on a chaise lounge while arguing with Mars.


* In ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', Jafar does this, in a definite overlap with SlouchOfVillainy.
* ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'': Yzma get's to do this after taking over as the reigning empress, just before finding out that Kuzco is still alive.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', King Dedede's crouch animation has him laying on his side as if reclining.


* ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'': [[http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/1/15776/1521859-hela1.jpg Hela]] has spent thousands of years making this trope into an art form. She does this on numerous occasions.

Added DiffLines:

* [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20180608 In a flashback]] from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', we see Queen Zantabraxus, Zeetha's mother, reclining on a couch while giving an audience to professor Consolmagno.


* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'s Greasus Goldtooth, Overtyrant of the Ogre Kingdoms, travels to battle and even fights like this, on a moving carpet of Gnoblar bearers. The model for Greasus (who is morbidly obese, even by Ogre standards, and possibly even can't walk under his own power) depicts him lying back at ease, giant haunch of meat in one hand, fabulous jewel-encrusted sceptre in the other. To further enhance his aura of disgustingly opulent excess (Ogres charge a very hefty fee to let merchants use the equivalent to the Silk Road), he has more gnoblars spread a carpet of gold coins in front of him wherever he goes. Subtlety is not a quality valued (or, indeed, understood) by ogres, so when they go in for a look, they don't do it by halves.
