Politically Incorrect Villain

Go To

"Well, whaddaya know? It's the fat boy, the Jew, and the sissy. Four eyes and the patch girl, too. Nigger, you know how to pick them: the Loser's Club."
Henry Bowers, from Stephen King's It

Want to show that your Evil Overlord, or someone within The Empire is a genuine bad guy, regardless of their rank in The Empire or how minor a character they are? Simple, all you have to do is have them Kick the Dog, right? Well, what if there isn't a handy dog around? Have them kick whatever minority race/species or gender/sexuality or lower class scum is around instead to show that they're a really bad guy. Bonus points if either the heroes or some highly sympathetic character is a member of said minority.

Depending on how and with whom this is used, it can sometimes come across as just slightly odd. It generally works best with minor characters who have not had a lot of time in the attention of the audience, since you can easily reveal that their Hidden Depths are really rather unpleasant, thus allowing you to cement them as unlikeable or have the character graduate from being an annoying obstacle to someone the fans will cheer to see put down.


It doesn't always work as well with the Magnificent Bastard Evil Overlord types, particularly if introduced late into their run as an antagonist. Because honestly, if the fandom hasn't turned against the Overlord after the character in question may have murdered thousands or even millions, enslaved people in The Empire wholesale, and so on and so forth, is having the character be a little sexist or racist really going to automatically turn people against them? (In particularly bad cases of Misaimed Fandom where the fans were already using every scrap of evidence and threadbare argument to argue that the bad guys weren't that bad, you may risk the character's fans declaring this to be a Fanon Discontinuity, and possibly even splitting the fanbase). In these cases, to make it work, you might have to do a purposeful Flanderization to your character and make them all about their bias. Of course, that will also mean you've gone and derailed your own plot if you need to do it to that extent...


A notable key to this is that the racism, sexism, Fantastic Racism, or whatever displayed by the character is often completely gratuitous or extraneous to the rest of their villainy. Usually, whatever their goal might be, they don't have to be a racist, speciesist, or sexist to accomplish it—but they are.

This is the reason why Those Wacky Nazis and The Klan are at the bottom of the villain food chain, and it's a good bet that the Politically Incorrect Villain will be the one going down in an Even Evil Has Standards team-up.

Also, people might sometimes see this trope where it doesn't exist. Some villains are simply bullying types who go after minorities without really caring whether people will find it politically incorrect or not—and it doesn't have to matter if their targets remind them of themselves in some way. Why do they do this? Minorities lack the numbers to fight back, and there's nothing to be gained from Bullying a Dragon.

Compare Evil Is Petty, He-Man Woman Hater and Does Not Like Men; Contrast Equal-Opportunity Evil and Politically Correct Villain. Note however that they are not mutually exclusive; a villain can be progressive towards some groups but intolerant towards others. Compare and contrast the Politically Incorrect Hero. May lead to Felony Misdemeanor if this character type is thought to be more evil than outwardly flamboyant villains. Any and all instances of Those Wacky Nazis qualify automatically, and A Nazi by Any Other Name often does. Fur and Loathing, a trope involving villains who are politically incorrect in a different sort of way, runs on a similar logic if it's done intentionally.

This is not when a villain is a minority who is portrayed in a politically incorrect manner. That's Unfortunate Implications, assuming it's unintentional. This should also not be confused with Values Dissonance, where the author apparently has these attitudes.

    Anime & Manga 
  • This seems to be a common trope in Jidai Geki / whenever there are ronins around. In Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran, the female ronin protagonist gets a lot of these comments and always trounces those who make them.
  • In the War of Austrian Succession arc of Axis Powers Hetalia, Prussia mocks the idea of Maria Theressa ruling Austria and uses the opportunity to snag Silecia. The Lemony Narrator makes a lot of jokes about the Values Dissonance of Prussia's reasoning. Maria Theresa, meanwhile, retaliates by bringing in Hungary to get rid of Prussia.
  • Basilisk: Tenzen firmly believes that the best and only way to submit a woman is by raping her. He's also convinced that "rape is love" and thus has two rape attempts on Oboro.
  • Adon Corborlwitz from Berserk mainly existed to be a sexist asshole and antagonize Casca.
  • Bleach:
    • Nnoitra is openly sexist. He openly mocks the more highly ranked Harribel as "scared" when she reacts with restraint to Ichigo's invasion of Hueco Mundo. He openly attacked Nelliel because she was a woman who was ranked higher than him. He loathed the idea of a woman having a higher position than a man on the battlefield and went to great lengths to plot her removal from the Espada ranks.
    • Yhwach openly uses arrancar as shock troops, explaining to a subordinate's query that they're disposable and easily replaced. He's only using them because they don't need training to fight, so he really doesn't care how long they last before they die. He also performs The Purge on any Quincy he regards as "impure" or no longer useful. This caused the deaths of Masaki and Kanae, Ichigo and Uryuu's mothers, and destroys other Quincies in the final arc.
  • This is a major reason why Nina of Code Geass was considered The Scrappy. Despite the fact that it would be safe to assume that some Britannians are racists, she's the only major character to hold such opinions and thus comes across badly. Though she originally doesn't tout any personal supremacy, she's "just" paranoid that any Eleven might be a terrorist. Later, after Princess Euphemia's death she becomes rather unhinged, and starts considering the use of a weapon that's for all thoughts and purposes a nuke against one man. Supplementary material says she once got lost in a Japanese ghetto as a child and something horrible happened to her there, explaining her general fear of Japanese people, but this is never brought up in the show itself.
    • Jeremiah Gottwald isn't paranoid like Nina, but he's easily the most racist out of everyone in Britannia's army, given that during his brief stint as Margrave of Area 11, he takes a little too much joy in executing the Japanese. His racism begins to dwindle as he begins to lose his sanity due to public humiliation, and it more or less mellows out after he encounters Sayoko several times.
    • Luciano Bradley also has moments like this, although they're less prominent because he's unpleasant in many other ways. His last words are "My life is taken by a lowly Eleven?"
  • Dragon Ball Z:
    • It's more due to fear than hatred, but Frieza has a beef against the Saiyan race, personified when he calls Goku and Vegeta "Saiyan monkeys." He's also quite disdainful of Namekians and their stubborn resistance to give him the Dragon Balls.
    • The Saiyans have a very strict class hierarchy based on strength. People born with very low Power Levels are automatically relegated to the lowest class as babies and dismissed as genetic trash only fit for tasks like the Suicide Mission. Saiyan society as a whole rejects the idea that one can ascend classes with hard work or that acquired qualities are more important than birth ones. This attitude is therefore freely expressed by characters who actually lived in Saiyan society:
      • One of Vegeta's beefs with Goku throughout the series, both before and after his Heel–Face Turn, is that Goku is a lower-class Saiyan, born at the absolute bottom of the pecking order, and thus should be a nobody while he's the Saiyan prince and should be the strongest by default. Right before their first battle, Vegeta rubs in the fact that Goku was a "reject" according to their society, and states "no amount of training will let you reach an elite like me." He also remorselessly kills Nappa after Goku breaks his back, because in his words, "Saiyans have no use for the paralyzed."
      • Raditz is a low-class warrior himself, but still expresses this attitude when meeting his little brother, Goku. He calls him a race traitor for identifying with his adopted home of Earth, disdains Goku's Half-Human Hybrid son, and says that Earthlings are weak and therefore undeserving of life. He planned to exterminate Earth's population and tried to force Goku into going along with it.
      • Nappa is a Saiyan noble with a similar attitude to Vegeta. He goes absolutely ballistic when Goku surpasses him via his latest training and starts beating him to a pulp.
      Nappa: You're not stronger than me, you little runt! Your strength was tested when you were a baby! You're a third-class Saiyan! I'm a Saiyan Elite, you low-class dog!
  • Hajime no Ippo: To add to the huge list of jerkassery of Bryan Hawk, he's also shown to be racist against Japanese. In an Ax-Crazy rant, he tells the Japanese that if they want to be world champion so badly, they should send him all of their women so he'll give them his genes. In twenty years, Japan would be crawling with world champions.
  • Every single villain in Me and the Devil Blues is some level of racist. It's pretty telling that one of the least racist villains, who actually asks R.J. to play for his party, calls the blues "nigger music." Yeahhh...
  • A large majority of the villains in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny, since most of the conflicts are sparked by racial tensions between normal humans and Coordinators, (genetically engineered humans). Blue Cosmos, which has a lot of influence in the Earth Alliance, actually wants to wipe out all Coordinators and calls them 'the monsters in space'. The radical factions in the Coordinator PLANT colonies aren't much better, with General Ripper Patrick Zala and Knight Templar Ezalia Joule plotting to wipe out Earth's entire Natural population.
    • Bonus points to Blue Cosmos leader Muruta Azrael who adds He-Man Woman Hater to his already severe Fantastic Racism. It isn't to nearly the same degree, but he treats the female captain of the Dominion with utter contempt ("Ms. Captain"), and is the only male character in the show to actually use the phrase "bitch" when describing a girl.
  • Before Gundam SEED was the original Mobile Suit Gundam saga. Ghiren Zabi expressed the superiority of the "spacenoid" race (those who were born and raised in space) and sought to get rid of those from Earth. In Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam the Titans were the reverse - they actually refused to allow those who were born in space to join their group. And then, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn revealed how harsh the level of animosity towards Newtypes were: the original Universal Century charter revealed that, should a Newtype emerge, they should be given control of the space colonies. When a terrorist attack struck, the Earth Federation hid away the original charter and set it up so that they continued to control the colonies.
  • Heavy Object gives us Prizewell City Slicker who borders on Absolute Xenophobe. He wanted to reinstate slavery and rid the Legitimacy Kingdom of its foreign languages, attempted to wipe out a mine of miners defecting to the Kingdom, and tried to destroy the immigrant city on Victoria Island. He's also implied to have been behind several terrorist attacks involving the assassination of foreign language band members and foreign language school bombings, however, there was no evidence to him being involved.
  • Naruto: As if there weren't enough reasons to hate him already, Madara Uchiha reveals himself to be a He-Man Woman Hater during his fight with Tsunade, spending much of said fight making sexist remarks.
  • Arlong and Hody Jones from One Piece are astoundingly brutal, sadistic, and unrepentant racists and Fishman supremacists who consider humans as little more than vermin and see nothing wrong with enslaving them or engaging in a full-on genocidal pogrom. Arlong has the slightly redeeming feature of caring greatly for his own men, but that means very little when you consider the many, many awful things he's done. Hody, on the other hand, doesn't even have that and is even nastier than Arlong, enough so to put him in the running for "biggest monster in the series". And making things worse, Hody had minimal interactions with humans and created his genocidal New Fishmen Pirates based on his own conclusion of Fisher Tiger's legacy (believing he was killed by humans, when he died because of his own stubborn racism), and the stories Arlong passed along.
  • Puella Magi Madoka Magica has Kyubey, who is a firm believer in Mother Nature, Father Science. Specifically, they think of females, especially teenage girls, as overemotional, disposable pawns to be used in their energy-siphoning operation; and the fact that they don’t seem to have contracted with any males seems to imply that they don’t think males are “emotional enough”. Actually a Justified Trope since Kyubey is a Hive Mind with no concept of individuality, so it’s only natural that it would see every other species in the same light.
  • In the Rurouni Kenshin arc that introduces Sanosuke, we encounter three very minor characters, (they don't even get names) drunkenly and nastily arguing while the Kenshin gang is trying to eat at Akabeko. We know they're not nice characters right away, and it's taken up a notch when one of them throws a sake jug that hits Kenshin in the head and then refuses to apologize, but things get taken up to a whole new level when one of the waitresses very politely comes over and asks them to keep it down and the biggest of the three responds by saying "And now a female is mouthing off?!!" and hitting her.
    • Notably, these drunkards were democratic activists; at this stage in Japanese history the 'government of the people' was extremely elitist and political parties were illegal. The guys drop a bunch of real names and are apparently using the cause to make themselves feel important while talking about freedom. Sano calls them on hypocrisy: he was mentored by a real populist.
      • They also bring up the separatist leader Saigo Takamori as a 'hero.' Given his army was Satsuma samurai and was defeated by a conscript army of citizens from all backgrounds, and Kaoru's father was killed on the government side just the previous year, it all brings up a lot of emotional complexity.
  • Sailor Moon:
  • Similarly, Samurai Champloo also has a very similar scene to the Kenshin one in its first episode, where a boorish nobleman is sexually harassing the waitresses at the restaurant Fuu works at and generally attacking very threateningly. After being promised free food to intervene, Mugen slaughters the guy's guards and performs Mutilation Interrogation on him.
  • In Shitsurakuen, the terms "villain" and "misogynist" are pretty much synonyms.
  • Soul Eater: After revealing his betrayal Justin Law, besides being an Ax-Crazy psychopathic Hero Killer zealot who worships a god of evil, is revealed to be an extreme misogynist. He looks down on Marie's fighting abilities for being a "lowly woman" and later after killing a female heroe calls her an "abject pig".
  • A lot of unpleasant characters in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's fit, at least in the first season, seeing as the upper class of Neo Domino City tended to look down on the lower class of Satellite. The term "Satellite scum" is a common slur. Oddly, enough, Rex Godwin, the first Big Bad of the series does not, seeing as he was actually born there.

    Comic Books 
  • If somebody says anything even remotely homophobic in the Midnighter's comic book series, they're evil. Period.
    • Sole exception is Kev, who in the end admits to himself he repeats homophobic slurs, because he got his idea how tough guys should act from TV and movies.
    • The G7 version of The Authority gives us The Colonel. Who fits this trope to a T.He's a repugnant misogynistic asshole and damn proud of it. And then there's Last Call who may be the most vile depiction of a homophobic character to ever be featured in a mainstream comic book.
  • In Batman: Heart of Hush, Hush seems to have a misogynistic and classist streak, calling Zatanna a "filthy gypsy" and Selina a "common gutterslut". This could possibly be explained by his issues with his mother, a smothering, snobby woman.
  • The Boys: Most of the superpowered people in the Boys universe are either racist, misogynistic or homophobic just to drive home how screwed up they are.
    • The Homelander, a twisted Captain Ersatz for Superman is a ginormous racist, as well as a misogynist and a rapist. In two separate issues he shouts a racial epithet just before (or just after) killing a minority villain.
    • The Captain Marvel/Thor knock-off, Storm Front, who is an actual Nazi and is mentioned to sponsor numerous white supremacist causes and militias worldwide. (That Stormfront is also the name of a real life Neo-Nazi and white supremacist group should be a clue that the character isn't a big fan of diversity.)
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
    • The Swell are highly misogynistic, what with Slayers being their main enemies.
    • Genevieve does not consider anyone who is not nobility to be worth her time, and considers anyone from the "colonies" to be worth even less.
    • Dracula refers to Japanese vampires as "filthy yellow swine" and calls Renée "Xander's moor". However, he is portrayed as simply politically incorrect, without malice behind it, his attitudes being mainly a result of extraordinary age.
  • A lot of Captain America villains are like this. Besides the Red Skull, there's Arnim Zola, Crossbones, Baron Heinrich Zemo, and Hydra in general. (Hell, on the cover of the hero's first appearance, he was shown punching Hitler himself in the face, even though that never happened.) This is because Captain America's career as a costumed hero began during World War II. There exists more than one cover featuring Cap punching out Hitler or (a racist caricature of) General Tojo. The man was used to sell War Bonds, after all.
    • It's not uncommon for Red Skull and others in HYDRA to voice their racist views; they are noticeably non-sexist however, and women such as The Viper and Red Skull's own daughter Sin can achieve major positions in the organization.
  • Paul Cornell's Captain Britain and MI13 series depicted Marvel's version of Dracula as a virulent anti-Muslim bigot, which Doctor Doom upbraids him for. May be justified if you identify Dracula with the historical Vlad III Dracula, who fought many wars against the Ottoman Empire.
  • Captain Nazi. Really and truly, his name says it all, doesn't it? Although he's apparently some kind of personification of Nazism, so it's integral to his character rather than a gratuitous trait.
  • In Circles, Carter Allen holds a meeting with the entire neighborhood and doesn't invite Paulie and the others because he wants to discuss what to do about them. He doesn't want to live near "fags" in his neighborhood.
  • In Champions (2016), the team ends up dealing with a small town sheriff who was heavily bigoted and, unknown to most people, was actually inspiring various hate crimes by causing them. Gwenpool drops in and attempts to reveal that there's no way someone could be this bigoted without super villain assistance because this is a comic book, but Kamala Khan attempts to get through the girl's skull that people can be bigoted without super villain influence.
  • In Crimson, the Knights Templar practice Fantastic Racism and Van Helsing Hate Crimes, not only persecuting supernatural monsters whether they are evil or not as well as getting innocents killed in their crusade. However, their leader Barnebau D'Orense verges into this territory by throwing misogynistic remarks towards a female main character, promising that he will make a "breeding slut" out of her to his lesser knights, and that is if she is lucky. He is also vaguely implied to be racist too, since he expresses surprise that their champion Saint George was reincarnated as a black man.
  • Writers who don't like presenting Doctor Doom as a Noble Demon will sometimes make him more unsympathetic by having him voice racist and sexist sentiments. This is at odd with Doom's more frequent characterization as having meritocratic views (believing not that all people are equal, but that the elite can come from any background), and specifically loathing ethnic bigotry on account of his Roma ancestry. Fans tend to conclude that bigoted Dooms were actually malfunctioning Doombots.
  • The Flash:
    • Captain Boomerang made a number of racist remarks during his time on Suicide Squad. Shortly after his death in Identity Crisis, it was implied he also made a number of homophobic remarks to the openly-gay Pied Piper.
    • The Trickster was also homophobic to Pied Piper in Countdown to Final Crisis. What makes this baffling to many fans was he wasn't like that before and in fact was the one who implied that Captain Boomerang made similar remarks, wondering why the hell Pied Piper was mourning him.
    • Dr. Alchemy's appearance in Gotham Central presented him as a homophobe, a racist, and a sexist.
  • Frank Miller's RoboCop sees the Rehabs emulate stereotypes of Native Americans while torturing an officer in the climax.
  • The most defining characteristic of Hugo Von Schwatzenburg, a German officer and the only named villain in the World War I serial "Golden Eyes" and Her Hero "Bill", has got to be his misogyny. Within moments of seeing a battered and frightened American heroine Golden Eyes lost in the woods, he formulates a plan to capture and seduce her, believing that she'll forget he's keeping her as a prisoner of war and instantly fall in love with him- because she'll "worship his 'SUPER'-mannishness" [sic]. The most concentrated dose of this characterization arrives in Von Schwatzenburg's POV installment and immediately following the revelation that Golden Eyes has stolen his communiques and ferried them off to the American side, whereupon he descends into a frothing rage and describes Americans as "the hated who 'honored their women and did not understand that they were servants and slaves and dolls!'"
  • During Kurt Busiek's JLA story "Syndicate Rules" (dealing with the aftermath of JLA/Avengers), the Crime Syndicate's Johnny Quick twice displays racism. The first time, before the CSA's siege on Qward and Krona destroying the antimatter universe, Johnny Quick boasted about defeating a Chinese rebellion and was in the middle of calling the people "yellow" when Owlman started beating the crap out of him (as he'd been funding the rebellion to ultimately relieve the CSA's boredom). The second time, after the universe is restored with some changes, Quick called Power Ring, who was Race Lifted into a John Stewart counterpart by what happened, "Black Power Ring", much to Power Ring's chagrin.
  • Variant in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the Big Bad of the first book is depicted as a homophobe just to bump up his villain credentials (despite the fact that this would have hardly made him unusual in the Victorian era). Likewise, in the third volume, the more misogynistic qualities of James Bond and the more reactionary qualities of Bulldog Drummond are played up.
  • Whether he's presented as a violent Anti-Hero parody or a snarky bad guy, Lobo is presented as misogynist and a pervert in the same way guys like Archie Bunker are, because it's funny and he's not the type of guy fans are supposed to emulate. He's made lewd comments to most of DC's power players and in one story, ripped Starfire's top off as "payment for services".
  • Another Marvel villain named the Mandrill (who has fought Shanna the She-Devil, the Thing, Daredevil, and many other heroes) has the mutant power to control women using pheromones. He doesn't even try to deny that he's a misogynist, and has often used his female brainwashed henchmen as Sex Slaves.
  • In Miracleman, Johnny Bates, after gruesomely murdering or mutilating half the population of London, still takes a second to Kick the Dog by calling the African-American pyrokinetic hero Huey Moon a "nigger".
  • Norman Osborn is one. He is sexist, violent xenophobe, admires Hitler and the Red Skull. White supremacists believe he is a true hero of white Americans.
  • The Punisher MAX:
    • Just in case you missed the memo that the clique of generals in "Valley Forge, Valley Forge" arc were evil (we're talking about a group who maintained their own secret jihadists to throw a plane at Moscow and try to weaponize a flesheating virus), one of them learns the initial attack on Frank was unsuccesful, flips out and insults the man in charge of the attack (who is totally-not-Morgan Freeman).
    • The Heavy, The MAX version of Punisher's archnemesis, Jigsaw, was very racist and misogynistic, referring to Mexican women as "spic bitches," "coozes," and "whores" nearly every time he opens his mouth.
  • Red Skull:
    • When first introduced, Red Skull, arch-enemy of Captain America, was indeed a Nazi agent, but was written more as an "enemy of America" than a "Nazi" per se. Over time, however, he has been given more and more racist and eugenic dialogue, making him the rare Marvel villain who became less sympathetic over time. This trend peaked in the late 1980s, when he was portrayed as a lunatic anarcho-capitalist who was explicitly too evil for the Nazis, and then reversed somewhat; now, he is (for the most part) "merely" a Nazi again.
    • One script during Mark Waid's run of Captain America was written from the Red Skull's POV and contained a number of racial slurs. The racially-charged comments (among other things) were heavily edited out of the published issue, with the final issue being so radically different that Waid asked his name be taken off the credits. The issue's original script built up to a scene where the Skull, in a roundabout way, equates Cap to Hitler himself. Link here.
    • This massively backfired on the Skull during the Crisis Crossover Acts Of Vengeance. Loki was trying to organize a big supervillain teamup to take down the superheroes once and for all. This sounds good on paper, but he proceeded to invite Skull to the group, who is despised by most other villains. This put the Red Skull (who is, again, a Nazi) in the same room as Magneto (a Jewish Holocaust survivor), Doctor Doom (of Romani descent and deeply hates bigotry), the Mandarin (Chinese), Kingpin (a lover of capitalism who also hates bigotry), and the Wizard (who doesn't have any real ideology, but didn't want anything to do with Skull). Needless to say, the day wasn't even over before the whole plan collapsed in on itself due to in-fighting. The whole thing ended with Magneto burying Skull alive.
    • Averted by the even more evil Ultimate Red Skull, who seems to have lost all his racial supremacist connotations, given that's he's worked for dictators and terrorists of every possible colour and creed. He believes in true equality: He wants to kill EVERYONE.
  • Longtime Avengers foe Eric Williams, more infamously known as The Grim Reaper, once reformed his "Lethal Legion" criminal organization in a revenge effort against The Vision and his brother Simon, Wonder Man. Counted among them was the Wakandan M'Baku, also known as The Man-Ape. In an early issue of "West Coast Avengers", the Reaper violently lashed out at M'Baku, calling him a "black savage", and telling him to "get his stinking gorilla costume out of here!", punctuating his invective with a blast from his energy scythe. What sparked this raging outburst? Man-Ape coming to DELIVER A STATUS REPORT. Ironically, Williams' lover Nekra, an albino, but nevertheless African American by birth woman, was right by his side and witnessed the entire incident. The Reaper handwaved the seeming hypocrisy by stating that Nekra's pure white skin made her Caucasian in his eyes, and that seemed to satisfy her. But the Reaper got his in the end when both Man-Ape and The Black Talon, another Legion member who was of Creole descent, abandoned Williams and his revenge quest during the climactic battle with the Avengers.
  • Otto von Todt in Requiem Vampire Knight was a Nazi before he became a vampire and on top of being a bloodthirsty sadist, he still very much retains his anti-Semitic sentiments, specially towards Rebecca, one of his Jewish victims killed in a concentration camp whom he refers to as "jewess" in a derogatory manner. He also keeps the heads of his victims on his wall as trophies and says that is the only part a Jew will be welcome in his house.
  • Robin Series: King Snake tried to slaughter the populace of Hong Kong rather than let it be returned to China, believing that everything great about the city came by way of Britain.
  • Runaways:
    • Marvel's The Swarm is, as the Runaways put it, "A super-Nazi...made of bees" (My God). He takes the time to ask Victor which of the "mongrel races" he belongs to during their fight — Vic's mom was Mexican, his dad Ultron. You'd think someone made out of bees would be open minded.
    • Played with in an arc of Runaways where the kids are sent back in time to 1907. While the villains naturally make racial slurs towards Nico for being of Japanese descent, even more sympathetic characters like Tristan, Lillie, and Klara express racist views.
  • In The Secret Service, James Arnold gives horribly offensive nicknames for his disabled henchmen. For example his Dragon with leg prosthesis is nicknamed Gazelle.
  • On a lighter note, Spider-Woman once fought a guy named Turner D. Century, whose goal was to return society to the cultural values it had in The Gay '90s, which was made quite clear that it also included repressing women and minorities, making him both a bigot and a chauvinist. Despite his rather unethical outlook, as a villain, he's regarded as a joke, even in story where he mostly complained about Spider-Woman's outfit not being fit for the 1890s, but did get a Not-So-Harmless Villain moment when he burnt a building in Chinatown for not being like the 1890s. Among the fandom he is considered one of the biggest joke in Marvel's history and has a following because of it.
  • Superman:
    • Following John Byrne's reboot The Man of Steel, the post-Crisis version of Lex Luthor liked to belittle women or blackmail them into sleeping with him, and mocked Maggie Sawyer's sexual orientation. Additionally, many of the more recent depictions of Luthor have his hatred of Superman expand to extraterrestrials in general, into full-blown Terran supremacism.
    • Manchester Black made racist remarks towards people of African and Korean descent. His breakdown, kept for Superman vs. the Elite, also has him call Superman a homophobic slur after Superman reveals that his Beware the Superman moment was merely an act and how he truly beat the Elite without resorting to their own methods.
    • In the mid-nineties, Vinnie Edge was portrayed as not only the head of Intergang, under cover of running Galaxy Broadcasting, but also as a total creep around women, especially successful women, excusing himself that he was an old man and by his values he was being friendly. Cat Grant ended a Galaxy news broadcast with the announcement that sexual harassment charges were being placed against him, based on statements from herself and many other women, just as the police arrived at the studio.
  • Thor: Vikings pitted the God of Thunder against Harald Jakaelsson, an undead Viking raider and a prolific rapist and sexist. The first thing he does when setting foot on New York is try to rape a young woman, is baffled upon seeing a female officer taking up arms against him and calls Sigrid a "whore at arms". Do note that he belongs to a very different time period and his sexism is far from the worst thing about him.
  • In The Tomb of Dracula, Dracula was more than a bit of a sexist. He frequently compares men that he views as wimpy or spineless to women. Frank Drake was often the target of such insults. He also referred to Blade as a "savage" upon their first meeting. On some occasions, he would address Blade as "Black" instead of by his name. In Dracula's own defense, he had a healthy respect for Blade and in a later series compared him to a Moor General that he once fought. Moor being another of those outdated terms to refer to non-Caucasians that appear racist to modern readers.
  • Transformers: More than Meets the Eye has Chief Justice Tyrest and Star Saber, who both believe Transformers that were constructed cold are "predisposed to sin" and thus all evil. While Star Saber is just a straight-up bigot, Tyrest at least has the excuse of having been driven insane prior to the events of the comic. Their Evil Plan is to use a device called the Universal Killswitch to kill every single cold-constructed Transformer in the galaxy (which is about half of the population). It almost succeeds but thankfully the crew stops it.
    • Most of the Decepticons, naturally, aren't exactly thrilled with organic life. Even Fulcrum, who up until that point had been positively portrayed (for a Decepticon) states in a lecture that he sees nothing wrong with exterminating "backwards" organic life-forms. He even sees it as an improvement.
  • Close to all of the villains in Wanted are this. The Future is definitely the worst though, as he is an unapologetic Nazi and misogynist.
  • The Wizard became a mild chauvinist after the several failed attempts to find a permanent fourth member for the Frightful Four. He reasoned that because the fourth member was frequently female, that must be the problem. (Of course, he was only making excuses. Medusa was the original fourth member, but only because she had amnesia, and the Wizard foolishly tried to recruit her twice more, but she was no longer a villain and she only did so both times to double-cross them. Thundra was a mole too, who was the fourth member right after Medusa. And just for the record, the Frightful Four has gone through a lot of fourth members that ended in disasters. In short, male or female, the Wizard's judgment in who he worked with was incredibly poor, he just wanted to blame someone other than himself.)
  • Dating back to The Golden Age of Comic Books, Wonder Woman villain Doctor Psycho was considered insanely misogynistic even when he was introduced, and unlike other venerable foes of Wonder Woman, his motivation hasn't really changed. He became a villain because he hates women, and though he doesn't shy away from harming men, either, he makes it a point of interest to Mind Rape, torture, terrorize, enslave or eat any woman who catches his attention.
    • Ares was a similar Straw Misogynist who thought women should be slaves and regularly beaten as part of their daily routine.
    • In the 90s there was a one-time Wonder Woman villain who called himself the Chauvinist. First thing he is seen doing is leading an army of abusive husbands against a place sheltering their wives, while yelling misogynistic things like he's preaching a gospel. These days the guy is remembered only because he was over the top to the point of hilarity.
  • In Wacky Raceland, a Darker and Edgier Comic-Book Adaptation of Wacky Races, the Red Max (renamed "The Red Baron") is depicted as a Nazi and also makes a homophobic remark toward Rufus Ruffcut as well as some transphobic statements toward Sergeant Blast (who is a transgender woman in this continuity).
  • X-Men:
    • A one-shot killer-schoolkid character in Grant Morrison's run, in explaining why he killed a mutant and harvested his organs, included the aside "Yes, he was gay, but that's incidental to my cause."
    • If one counts Fantastic Racism, recurring villainous groups the Friends of Humanity and the U-Men are based on this; the FoH are the most well-known anti-mutant racist crusaders/human supremacists, whilst the U-men have similar ideologies for explaining their calling of vivisecting mutants to graft organs to themselves to acquire superpowers.
    • Really, most X-Men villains tend to be this in some way or another. It kind of goes hand-in-hand with the anti-bigotry Aesop that forms the backbone of the premise. Hell, even Magneto, a Jewish Holocaust survivor, is depicted as being somewhat bigoted towards non-mutants; this is essentially meant to show that, for all of Magneto's moralizing and bluster, he's ultimately a tremendous hypocrite who's Not So Different from the very people he opposes.
      • Mr Sinister is both racist and sexist, though this is justified in part, as he was born in the early 19th century. (It is also somewhat variable, as Depending on the Writer.) In Kieron Gillen's run, where this is certainly true, he refers to Emma as Scott's broodmare, good only to "house your seed," and Storm as his "Colonial pet."

    Fan Works 

    Films — Animated 
  • Gaston in Beauty and the Beast is very quickly established as a chauvinistic pig: "It's not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting ideas and thinking." This turns out to be just the tip of the iceberg for a thoroughly nasty piece of work. There may have been a dose of sour grapes in there as well. The look he gives the book after he snatches it out of Belle's hands would seem to imply that it is well above his reading level.
  • Coonskin by Ralph Bakshi, being an animated Blaxploitation Parody film, had many racist characters and racial stereotypes throughout the movie. But we see the most blatant example in Officer Madigan, a cop of the mobs payroll. He's both racist and homophobic even towards the son of his mob boss who is a blatant homosexual. He goes as far as to refuse to bathe before meeting with some black street level thugs who also work for his boss (in his words, they ain't worth it). He gets a combo of Death by Racism and Color Me Black, when "Brother Rabbit" drugs him with some acid leaving him in full blackface, armed, and wearing a dress. This caused him to fly off the handle and shoot it out with some other cops and get riddled with bullets.
    • There's also Simple Savior, who spouts phony pro-black propaganda, and claims to be cousin to Black Jesus. He uses this scam to con "donations" from the people of Harlem so he can "buy guns to kill whites". In reality his money gets kicked up to the mafia who gladly exploit and oppress Harlem to their disposal.
    Doorman: This here's where Simple Savior runs his black revolution, brother. Natural black Jesus is the reverend's cousin, too. He gives people the strength to kill whites.
    Brother Bear: Kill whites? You hear that shit? Any whites?
    Doorman: Yeah, any whites.
    Brother Bear: Ain't this a bitch?
    Preacher Fox: Anyone we want?
    Brother Bear: Ain't this a bitch!
    Preacher Fox: Huh. We can kill anyone we want?
    Doorman: Any whites.
  • Claude Frollo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He wins extra points for being a genocidal racist. To be fair, while it is an unnecessary addition to the original character, the movie actually bends the plot around his racism — it launches the plot by being the reason he gets stuck with Quasimodo in the first place (he chases and murders Quasi's mother coldly because he's racist); his attempted genocide helps to bond Esmeralda and Quasimodo while also pushing Phoebus to betray him; and it adds an extra layer to his crisis of faith about his lust for Esmeralda.
  • Inverted in Mulan. Shan-Yu is one of the few male characters in the movie to never say anything sexist against Mulan, and he seems to appreciate her bravery. This could be because the Huns and other Steppe societies were less sexist against women than the Chinese, and while the women were generally expected to stay home, they were also respected as warriors in their own right and were more than capable of defending themselves while the men were away.
  • And what to think of Governor Ratcliffe from Pocahontas? To an extent, this is the whole point of his character, since he's basically a Composite Character of the cruelty of European colonization. The lyrics to the song "Savages", which he leads, were so offensive to Native Americans people actually complained about the movie as a whole being racist — despite it being the villain who was blatantly racist. And the fact in the song, the Native Americans called the Europeans "savages", and their chief made remarks such as "milky hide" and "paleface".
    • The sequel plays with this. The people of England are fine with Pocahontas when she first shows up, but when she protests the bear-baiting as "barbaric", the king decides she's just a savage and locks her up.
  • While it's surprisingly underplayed in The Princess and the Frog, there are the two Jerk Ass realtors who tell Tiana, after informing her that she was outbid on the building she was trying to buy, that "a woman of your...background, you're better off to stay where you are". Given the look on Tiana's face, she definitely gets all of the implications. Interestingly, Facilier implicitly tries to apply this trope to the town in general as an excuse for his behavior, which is very untrue.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • In Addams Family Values, the camp counselors very obviously give the blond WASP kids the desirable parts of the play while putting Wednesday, Pugsley, and the children who are minorities in the less desirable roles. Their script is also absurdly racist, harping on how primitive the Indians are and stressing that the superior white children shouldn't be too snobbish about how much better they are. At least until Wednesday takes the story Off the Rails...
  • The indie movie Amreeka, which revolves around Muna and Fadi Farah, a mother and son, as they transition from their life in the West Bank to a rural Indiana town, has them deal with the hostility of the locals since the story takes place a few months after 9-11. Particularly, they have to deal with a white high school student that refers to Fadi and his extended family as "terrorists," simply because they are Arab. Things come to a head when the Bully goes to Muna's workplace, and after making fun of them, she chases him and his friends away, which causes her to slip and fall while they walk away laughing. Later, when Fadi goes to confront the bully, they tussle on the ground with the bully yelling out: "terrorist!" Which causes the police to arrest Fadi, and hold him for questioning. It's only with the intervention of the, Jewish, high school principal that Fadi is let go with a warning, and the police stop any investigation for a possible terrorist connection.
  • Miles Quaritch from Avatar expresses Fantastic Racism in the sense that it applies to another species than another race. That said, the very nature of his remarks very closely resembles conventional racism.
  • Back to the Future: Members of Biff and Buford Tannen's gangs use racial slurs such as "spook" and "chink". Buford himself "once bragged that he'd shot 12 men, not including Indians or Chinamen."
  • In John Wayne's anti-Communist movie Big Jim McLain, one of the Communist villains is an anti-black racist, even though racism was something that American communists officially opposed-they supported civil rights. Bonus points in that John Wayne was pretty racist himself in Real Life, as were many anti-communists of the time-they opposed civil rights as a "communist plot" because the communists supported it. Ironically, that's also exactly how the CPUSA's KGB handlers viewed the civil rights crowd in real life, sans slogans: As useful idiots for destabilizing America. That a '60s Communist should be a (hypocritical) racist isn't necessarily out of character at all.
  • In Blade II, Bloodpact member Reinhardt makes a racist comment towards Blade. In the commentary, director Guillermo del Toro even calls him "a Nazi".
    • Apparently it is based on a real commentary that Wesley Snipes once received from a real Nazi.
  • Blazing Saddles: Oddly, Big Bad Hedley Lamarr doesn't show as much blatant bigotry as his henchmen, Mr. Taggart and Lyle. He doesn't show as much racism as the Innocent Bystanders that the black sheriff is protecting! When hiring outlaws the Big Bad advertises himself as an Equal Opportunity Employer and specifically mentions in his famous Long List that he wants criminals of many different races and backgrounds working for him. On the other hand, he doesn't hesitate to slap Lily around and insult her German ancestry when she does a High-Heel–Face Turn. Hedley is also in charge of appropriating land in Colorado from the local Indians, justifying this by claiming "they're such children."
    • Even that could be chalked up to playing to his audience, the governor and his cabinet. Lamarr is pretty much does it for the money and power.
  • The Blues Brothers introduces its neo-Nazi villains by giving their leader a deeply racist speech at a rally. Our heroes are not pleased.
    Jake: I hate Illinois Nazis.
  • Awkwardly done in The Boondock Saints where Yakavetta insists that Rocco refer to the black man in the joke he's telling as a "nigger".
  • A random Mook in the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie: "You're a dyke! I'll tell the world!"
  • Byzantium: Nearly all members of the vampire Brethren hold very open contempt for women.
  • Mike Teevee gets upgraded to one in Tim Burton's version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. After describing the rigmarole he went through to game the system and find the golden ticket, he says "A retard could do it." Fitting for someone known for consuming lots of age-inappropriate media.
  • Con Air: Both members of the Big Bad Duumvirate are notable racists. Cyrus the Virus says a lot of racist comments toward Pinball and Baby-O, later clarifying to Pinball that he meant it. Diamond Dog is a black supremacist terrorist who believes that all white people are inherently evil. However, both of them are still pragmatic enough to team up with each other, if only for the time being.
  • While their support for slavery makes them inherently politically incorrect villains, the Confederate States in the Alternate History C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America is also highly sexist, and while like the actual United States, it had Chinese laborers in the 19th century, they chose to enslave theirs. They also decided to be Christian-only, and thus their Jewish population either fled or were allowed to live on ghettos reservations. They also devoted their equivalent of the Red Scare to outing homosexuals.
  • The killer in Curse of the Zodiac was quite prone to misanthropic and homophobic rants.
  • Parodied in Deadpool 2, when Wade keeps insisting that Cable is racist because he killed Black Tom Cassidy, who’s the same ethnicity as Cable, white. Wade seems to mistakenly think Cassidy was a very fair-skinned black man.
    • Played straight with The Juggernaut, who calls Colossus (a Russian) a "Commie motherfucker" during their fight.
  • Death Warrant: The Warden and the rest of his guards are blatantly racist. At one point he hunts down one of Burke's allies to kill him, claiming that he "can smell niggers".
  • Frank Costello of The Departed mentions a distaste for "niggers" in his opening monologue. While it is shown to have historical significance, this racism fails to show up in any significant way within the plot — it is only used to establish, mere seconds into the movie, that this guy is not a good man.
    • Later on, he tears into a group of Chinese criminals, despite them aiming machine guns at him, calling them chinks as he berates them for bringing automatic weapons to the deal.
  • The terrorists in The Delta Force really hate Jews. When they order the stewardess to pick up the hostages' passports and separate the Jews from the others, she tearfully refuses because she is German and doesn't want to do anything with the Nazis. However, the leader snaps back at her saying that her people didn't kill enough Jews, and in fact The Dragon becomes pissed off when they discover there are Jews in the plane. On a smaller note, they also hate Christians since they sneer at a Catholic priest that wants to help the Jewish hostages, and they round up an Greek Orthodox priest that happens to work for Israel not because of any pragmatic reasons, but because he is a Christian.
  • Simon Gruber of Die Hard with a Vengeance plays with this trope like a kitten does a ball of yarn. Although he comes from a family of former Nazis, he harbors no bigoted attitudes in particular. Still, he seems to delight in making people think he is bigoted, mostly because he thinks it's fun to anger people and/or fake them out. When first speaking to Zeus Carver, for example, Simon (who is German but can mimic American Accents quite well, and who knows that Zeus is an Angry Black Man because he's been watching him on hidden video cameras) says: "So whot's yowuh name, boy?" in twangy, Corrupt Hick fashion just to irritate Zeus; he then apologizes, explaining that he's fond of tasteless jokes. Later the trope is seemingly played straight when Simon calls John McClane a "dumb Irish flatfoot," but this is due not to anti-Irish sentiment but to Simon's general bitterness toward John for having killed his brother, Hans, in the first Die Hard movie. Simon admits that he didn't even like Hans, but he is still determined to exact vengeance on anyone who messes with his family, saying "There's a difference between not liking one's brother, and not caring when some dumb Irish flatfoot drops him off a building."
  • Scorpio from Dirty Harry, who says he would consider it pleasure to "kill a Catholic priest or a nigger." He also tries to snipe out a gay couple.
  • Much of District 9 has different levels of these characters, being that it is essentially a story of The Apartheid Era with aliens replacing black people as the victims of racism. Psycho for Hire Koobus, who is the head of MNU's private army, really runs with this trope though when he says that he would do his job for free because he just loves to watch Prawns die.
  • Calvin Candie in Django Unchained, a Mississippi plantation owner and utter bigot. He's the only villain created by director by Quentin Tarantino that Tarantino has gone on the record saying he despises and it's easy to see why by watching the movie. Cruel even by slave-owner standards, he forces his slaves into bloody Fight Clubbing matches to the death and kills them by feeding them to his dogs, justifying his mistreatment by referencing the - debunked - science of phrenology. Ironically, his black servant Stephen is also his most loyal.
  • Force 10 from Navarone: Aside from the Nazis themselves (though they seem to be more regular German forces), the boisterous Chetnik leader touches Weaver's face to see if his black skin leaves stains. Since he's pretending to be a Partisan at the time, this is a hint that he's actually a Nazi collaborator. When the two meet again in the film's climax and get into a Knife Fight, the Chetnik wounds Weaver and mocks "blackie" for bleeding red.
  • In found., Steve is a serial killer who targets mainly black people due to his racist views.
  • The horror film Frontier(s) features a family of neo-Nazis who frequently use racial slurs.
  • It's more a sign of the times (the 1860's) but Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New York is profoundly racist, especially against the Irish but also against anyone who isn't white and Protestant.
  • In The Gift (2000), Keanu Reeves plays a brutal, wifebeating thug who is menacing the psychic heroine with insults and threats and apropos of nothing at all he announces, "You ain't no better than a Jew or a nigger!" He is a Red Herring for the murderer and ends up becoming somewhat sympathetic, sending him into subversion territory.
  • The Godfather
    • One of the other dons, describing his plan for his gang's drug trafficking, intends to market heroin to blacks, saying "They're animals anyway, let them lose their souls".
    • Jack Woltz, while not a true villain in the movie (in the book he's a much more distasteful individual), he quickly loses any sympathy he may have had by throwing every slur in the book against Italians at Tom Hagen in a single sentence.When Tom points out that he's actually part Irish and part German, Woltz then refers to Tom as "My kraut-mick friend."
    • There's also Senator Geary in The Godfather Part II, who rants about "oily-haired" Italian-Americans "pretending to be decent Americans." He's forced to eat these words later on, after being blackmailed by Michael, giving a ridiculously over-the-top speech praising Italian-Americans to a Senate committee.
  • Velma Von Tussle in the Hairspray movie is not only racist, but makes cruel comments to the heroine about her weight. Granted, the movie (and original film) show that lots of people were pretty openly racist during this time period, but it is an extra Kick the Dog for her.
  • Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle has the Jerk Ass cop, the extreme sports punks, and Harold's lazy womanizing coworkers, who make him do their work because "Asians love crunching numbers".
  • Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay tops the previous film with one of the most racist characters in film history: Homeland Security official Ron Fox. He believes every stereotype about every race and religion there is, and will ignore and literally wipe his ass with the rights and freedoms all Americans are given unless you're a white Christian.
  • In the Harry Potter universe, Death Eaters are basically the wizard equivalent of the KKK: they are racial supremacists who aim to "purify" the wizarding world by eliminating muggle-born wizards and eventually subjucating other magical and non-magical creatures under pure-blood wizarding rule. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Death Eaters also wear pointed hoods, just to make sure you got the message. This is changed back to a regular hood in the later films, to match the description given in the books.
  • Inglourious Basterds. To make the film's Affably Evil Anti-Villain more palatable, they even introduce him with a speech in which he admits to admiring the Jews, contrary to his Nazi bretheren. The anti heroes occasionally enter into this trope as well, as their disregard for German lives crosses a few lines, too.
  • Ingrid Goes West introduces Nicky, who is the first deliberate obstacle on Ingrid's Instagram stalk-quest, by imitating a Chinese man by slanting his eyes and saying "Herro." Ezra mutters about racism as he goes to get another drink.
  • Twister in Ip Man 2 established himself by calling Master Hung a "yellow piece of fat" and throughout the movie continues to mock anything Chinese.
  • It's a Wonderful Life: When Mr. Potter tries to buy George out, he sneers at the sort of people Bailey has spent his life helping:
    "A young man—the smartest one in the crowd, mind you—a young man who has to sit by and watch his friends go places because he's trapped. Yes, sir, trapped into frittering his life away, playing nursemaid to a lot of garlic eaters."
  • In The Karate Kid Part III, the villain makes Daniel determined enough to continue fighting by calling Mr. Miyagi a "slope".
  • Kick-Ass 2: Chris D'Amico gives the founding members of the Toxic Mega Cunts extremely politically incorrect names based on race, nationality, or in one case, shortness.
    Javier: Alright. We got an ex-Triad member, looking for work.
    Chris: Easy! "Genghis Carnage"! Come on!
    Javier: You gotta quit with the racist stereotypes, Chris.
  • Kill Bill:
    • Unusual example in the first movie: Boss Tanaka, a member of the yakuza crime council, does not believe that a half-Chinese, American-born woman (O-Ren Ishii) should be the leader of a Japanese criminal syndicate. O-Ren promptly collects his fucking head, explaining that she is willing to take criticism but that any questioning of either her nationality or her ethnic heritage will not be tolerated.
    • O-Ren herself shows bigoted tendencies towards Caucasians, mocking the idea of a "little white girl playing with samurai swords".
    • While mostly an Anti-Villain, Budd doles out his share of this in the second film, referring to Hanzo as a "jap" and making an offhanded remark that he "doesn't Jew out" of paying for his past deeds.
    • Pai Mei, the mentor to the Bride, Elle Driver and Bill. Hates Caucasians, despises Americans and Japanese, and "has nothing but contempt for women". Unfortunately for the Bride, she's a white blonde American woman with a fondness for samurai arts. Of course this woman turns out to be his favourite student, and as such he's the only person he ever taught the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart technique before his death.
  • Arty Clay, who runs The Mafia in King of New York, is a vocally anti-black racist, in stark contrast to the Equal-Opportunity Evil of the title character.
  • In Layer Cake, Jimmy uses the word "darkies" when referring to Jamaicans.
  • Immortan Joe in Mad Max: Fury Road views his Wives as his property meant only to bear children (specifically sons) to raise as heirs to his corner of the Wasteland. Without children, they're entirely disposable, even his favorite one. If they attempt to escape, there is nothing he won't do to recapture them and lock them away in their Gilded Cage. That's not even getting into the way he uses other women as milk farms.
  • The Villain Protagonist in Man Bites Dog, in addition to being a Serial Killer who murders at random, regularly make derogatory comments about blacks, Asian, homosexuals and others. For example, after killing a black night watchman, he says he won't touch him because the "monkeys" have AIDS, and that they often have dogs with them because blacks are closer to nature.
  • Marvel Cinematic Universe:
    • Captain America: The First Avenger: Subverted by the Red Skull, who defects from the Nazis because he wants to Take Over the World all for himself, starting with bombing Berlin.
    • The Avengers: As Loki's Hannibal Lecture toward Black Widow gets heated, he punctuates it by calling her a "mewling quim," an archaic British term for a certain female body part.
    • Black Panther (2018):
      • Ulysses Klaue is a possible subversion unlike his comic book counterpart: while he harbors personal hatred of Wakandans and regards them as "savages", he is surprisingly tolerant employing men of African descent and treating Erik Killmonger (an African-American) as an equal partner.
      • Erik Killmonger on the other hand, plays this straight being a black supremacist whose plan involves the genocide and subjugation of non-'black' races. He also blames random white people for crimes committed by their ancestor. Plus, there's a lot of subtext in the way he treats women as he kills his girlfriend when she was held hostage, strangles a female elder who objected to his order, and openly relishes both killing an incapacitated Dora Milaje and the prospect of killing Shuri when she's disarmed.
  • The racist white cops in Men in Black 3 who pull over Agent J on the assumption that he, a black man, stole the flashy car he was driving at the time. (Which he actually did out of necessity; It Makes Sense in Context.) Justified in that it's a Time Travel plot and the black J has been plunked into The '60s—right in the middle of the Civil Rights Movement. Leads to this hilarious exchange:
    Agent J: And just because you see a black man, driving a nice car, does not mean it's stolen! *beat* A'ight, I stole this one … but not because I'm black!
  • The antagonists in Mississippi Burning, set in the Deep South in 1964 during the height of the civil rights movement.
  • Mitchell starts out with John Saxon's character murdering an unarmed minority burglar, then planting a gun on the body in order to claim self-defense. When the police shows up, he tosses out a "wetback" comment for good measure.
  • Leo's first scene in Mystery Team has him selling drugs to minors.
  • Harry Powell of The Night of the Hunter is a deeply religious man... who believes that god's a misogynist who wants him to marry and murder women and that the money he gets from doing this is God's way of providing for him to continue preaching and enacting his holy work of misogynistic serial murder. Among many other troubling aspects, his opening monologue in the film includes a lament that he can't actually kill every woman in the world.
  • Phantom of the Paradise: Swan is meant to represent the worst parts of the music industry, so he is of course shown using sex and drugs to control his performers (Not to mention special contracts). He plagiarizes material from Winslow and has him arrested, framed and humiliated to try to break him when Winslow keeps seeking credit. When Winslow sneaks into Swannage disguised as a groupie to try to get close enough to talk to Swan, Swan's response is "Get this faggot out of here". Swan's assistant Philbin is shown to be easily as vile, if of much less grand vision.
  • Punisher: War Zone sees crime boss Gaitano Cesare call some people "the ragheads in Queens" when he finds out that his nephew, Billy Russoti, is shipping in a biological agent for a Russian crime boss. Once Russoti becomes the movie's main villain, Jigsaw, he himself uses the same exact term in dealing with the Russian crime boss when discussing where it's going.
  • The first and third Indiana Jones films. Just to be on the safe side, the first one gives one of its Nazi villains a few antisemitic comments about the Ark of the Covenant.
  • The villain of Red Eye makes misogynistic comments throughout the film.
  • Retroactive: The homicidal Frank makes several derogatory remarks about foreigners, Mexicans in particular.
  • The antagonists in Roadracers frequently harass Donna about being Mexican.
  • RoboCop:
    • RoboCop (1987) has Clarence Boddicker and his gang. Emil Antonowsky makes a joke about prison rape and Joe Cox calls Emil a homophobic slur twice. Boddicker himself expresses sexism (He infamously says to two hookers "Bitches, leave.") and later uses a racial slur against an Italian gangster.
    • McDaggett in RoboCop 3 is not obviously racist, but still a Social Darwinist Colonel Kilgore who enjoys slaughtering the worthless gutter trash of Detroit to make room for Delta City.
  • The villains of Savaged are, to the man, evil rednecks who constantly call Native Americans " savages" or "gut-eaters," actively attempt to kill all the ones living in their area, and speculate that The Protagonist is colourblind for being a white woman and dating a black man.
  • In the 1983 remake of Scarface, Tony Montana states to his best friend that he doesn't like Colombians.
  • In Snatch., the fence Avi continually refers to Boris as a "Cossack."
  • Walter Wade Jr. (played by Christian Bale) in Shaft (2000). He's a white supremacist who harasses a black man at a restaurant, and later kills him because the guy successfully dissed him.
  • The Shining: where Grady tells Jack that the Magical Negro that helps the family is "a nigger".
  • In Silver Streak, we already know who the bad-guy is,note  but we really start hating him when he angrily calls Richard Pryor's character (who was disguised as a waiter) a "stupid nigger."
  • Sling Blade gives us Doyle Hargraves, the film's antagonist. He's a misogynist (he's a Domestic Abuser and treats Linda like a piece of ass most of the time), a Child Hater (Linda has a boy named Frank who Doyle treats even worse than Linda), a homophobe (Linda's boss Vaughan is gay, and Doyle calls him "pussy", "fag", "cocksucker" and [Linda's] "girlfriend"), and ableist (the protagonist, Karl, is mentally disabled and Doyle insults him by calling him a "humped-over retard". Also one of Doyle's band members, Terrence, is wheelchair-bound. Doyle calls him "cripple" and assaults him during a drunken meltdown).
  • In Sneakers, Mother and Crease get caught off-guard by a couple of Mooks. One of the Mooks orders Mother out of the van, then looks over at Crease (played by Sidney Poitier) and says "You too, midnight." The audience suddenly becomes very invested in seeing this nameless, faceless character get his ass kicked.
  • It doesn't play a part in the plot, but in Stand by Me, Ace seems to associate female sexuality with religion. When Jack complains that he can't get to second base with his girlfriend (even though he's only been seeing her for "just over a month" and she'll "only" let him fondle her breasts), Ace tells him, "She's a Catholic, man. They're all like that. If you wanna get laid, you gotta get yourself a Protestant."
  • M. Bison in Street Fighter, especially with his "I know women and you are harmless" remark towards Chun-Li. Bad idea. He also makes fun of the one-eyed Sagat with an "I guess you didn't SEE that, did you?"
  • In The Substitute 4: Failure Is Not An Option, Karl Thomasson goes to a Military Academy to dismantle a white supremacist cult that is secretly run by the commanding officer.
  • In Superman II, Zod's companion Ursa is misandric, hating men and taking sadistic pleasure murdering them (but she makes an exception for Zod and Non). Of course, she is insane.
  • Suspect: Michael, who calls Kathleen's black process server a "black devil" while mentioning him to her after he assaulted him with a knife. Also Matthew Helms to a lesser degree, as he appears to be a conservative Republican in favor of capital punishment (ironically, given that he's a murderer himself).
  • Upon being introduced to a female SWAT officer, Gamble, the villain of the movie S.W.A.T. says (rather nonsensically), "I didn't know they made bulletproof bras."
  • Sweetwater: "Prophet" Josiah. He's not only a polygamist (implied to be a Mormon who had splintered off to form his own sect), but also a blatant racist who says not only are mixed racial marriages wrong (standard opinion at the time) but that those in them should die, and previously tells Sarah once he rapes her that this "purified" her from the sin of being with her Mexican husband.
  • Tales from the Hood: Duke Metzger is a slimy white supremacist politician who moves into the slavery-era mansion that belonged to his grandfather, a slave owner who had all his slaves massacred at the end of the Civil War. The spirits of the slaves, contained in a puppet army, proceed to torment Metzger.
  • There's Something About Mary has a toe-curling exchange with Matt Dillon's character obliviously causing offense when trying to impress Mary. We already know he's a conniving bad guy, this nails down the fact that he's a self-serving idiot with the empathy of half a brick in a sock to boot.
  • The Thing with Two Heads has Dr. Maxwell Kirshner, a racist character that hates Black people, much for the irony, his head is attached to an African American.
  • In Tombstone, Behan helpfully announces that he's the founder of the Anti-Chinese League to let the audience know not to sympathize with him. This was Truth in Television, and sadly actually would have been a position of honor.
  • In the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies,Big Bad Elliot Carver mocks a female Asian agent by making exaggerated karate-chop/kung-fu moves and yelling Kiai, all the while gloating about his Evil Plan to 007 and the Chinese spy Wai Lin.
  • Several villains in the Toxic Avenger film series are bigoted in some way or another.
    • The Toxic Avenger
      • When Julie reminds Bozo of the targets they like to run over while driving, she uses racial slurs such as "niggers" and "chinks".
      • The gang leader Cigar Face refers to the police as "faggots" and calls Toxie a "monster faggot".
    • Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV
      • Toxie's evil double the Noxious Offender, also addressed as "Noxie", at one point kills two men while calling them "Faggot #1" and "Faggot #2".
      • While in Tromaville's evil alternate universe equivalent Amortville, Toxie at one point encounters a pair of rednecks dragging a black man across the road until he's reduced to a head. One of them runs away, but Toxie makes the one remaining pay by making him up to look like a black man and handing him over to a group of Klansmen, who promptly start hanging him.
      • Sgt. Kazinski and the Diaper Mafia attempted to bomb the Tromaville School for the Very Special in the beginning of the film and also make several ableist statements such as "Fuck the fucking tards!"
  • In Trading Places, the Eddie Murphy character overhears the Dukes comment how they can't "have a nigger run our family business". Before that, you could see the Dukes as affably dotty. That reveal tells the audience that the Dukes deserve whatever they get (impoverishment, and in one case, a life-threatening heart attack).
  • In True Romance, Dennis Hopper's character, knowing that The Mafia plans to torture him to death, preys on their politically incorrect nature, telling them that Sicilians are descended from blacks (which is not the word he uses). This provokes their leader into killing him immediately.
  • In Trumbo, gossip columnist Hedda Hopper calls MGM executive Louis B. Mayer a "kike." a derogatory term for Jew.
  • 12 Angry Men:
    • This is the defining character trait for Juror #10. He openly admits to not caring about the evidence, and votes guilty purely because the kid is... some minority ethnicity. During his Villainous Breakdown, all of the other jurors, some of whom are major Jerkasses in their own right, are visibly disgusted by his racism.
    • To a lesser extent, Juror #7, who makes some xenophobic comments towards Juror #11, implying that just because he's an immigrant he doesn't have the right to serve on a jury.
  • In Whiplash, Terence Fletcher teaches his music students in the most hostile way possible, often by belittling their appearances or personal histories. Throughout the film, he refers to Andrew Neyman (the main character) as a homosexual or little girl (when Andrew is neither) as a form of antagonization.
  • One of several reasons why the Wild Wild West film was poorly rated is that the somewhat likable Loveless of the television series was transformed into a racist bigot who is constantly making racial slurs and jokes against Will Smith's Jim West. (Of course, Loveless is a former slave-owner in Reconstruction-era America, and his attitude wasn't all that much worse than some real ones.) Also troubling is that the original Loveless was a dwarf and this one is an amputee, the subject for West's slurs against him. Lots of Dude, Not Funny! on both sides.
  • In The Wolverine, the Japanese Shingen and his mooks hate mutants, and they also harass Logan for being white.

  • Inverted Trope in this joke about a quick-thinking black man:
    An airplane was overweight—they had thrown off everything they could but it finally came down to throwing out passengers. A racist flight attendant gets on the intercom and says "All right—in order to offend no one, we will be throwing passengers off the plane alphabetically. African Americans?" (no one answers) "Black people?" (again, no answers) "Um... colored people?" As this goes on, a black child looks up at his father and asks "Aren't we all those things?" His father says "Remember, son, we're niggers. Jews and Mexicans come first."
    • Some of the humor in this joke comes the fact that it is the black man using the racist word instead of the racist—but if you want to tell this joke without using the word, you could say their family came from Zimbabwe.

  • Patrick Bateman in American Psycho is an insane, sadistic serial killer, and also racist, anti-semitic, elitist, sexist and homophobic.
  • The Hashashin in Angels & Demons is an psychotic misogynist that derives pleasures from violence against women. He hires an prostitute to abuse and degrade so badly she pretends to pass out so he can stop. He also briefly considers killing her during climax and later on, threatens to rapeVictoria.
    • All his friends and colleagues are too except of course, the Jewish Paul Owen/Allen and the gay Luis Carruthers. Those qualities were meant to be a reflection of the 1980's Wall Street high society in which he lived rather than a flaw specific to Bateman alone. Other than the serial killing (maybe).
  • Caliphate is depressingly common place with state-wide examples of this trope: South Africa is ruled by an white supremacist bloc that restored apartheid and slavery, while the titular Caliphate is not only deeply misogynistic but also bigoted towards Christians (whom they refer to a "Nazrani" which means Nazarene as a slur), and female Christians are regarded as natural sluts and whores. This is surprisingly downplayed with the Imperial States of America which while fiercely anti-Islamic and repressive of anything considered "non-American", its welcoming to people from other ethnicities and countries (so long as they aren't Muslim) and they grant greater freedoms to women like the right to join the army.
  • Present, and lampshaded in, one of the Captain Underpants spin-off books. In a comic book created by the book's main characters, Harold and George, an evil scientist wants to create a female clone of an evil monster toilet so that he would have a servant to attend to all his domestic needs. His assistant lampshades this trope by pointing out: "You know, that's not very politically correct," to which the scientist replies that he doesn't care because he's the bad guy. Needless to say, this doesn't end well for them. (Also, the hygienic implications of having a toilet doing housework are apparently not even thought of...)
  • In the Dan Brown novel Deception Point, Senator Sexton at one point thinks to himself while discussing toning down his condemnation of same-sex marriage for campaigning purposes "If it were up to me, the faggots wouldn't even have the right to vote". His actions only get more despicable from there.
  • Elantris:
    • King Iadon is really sexist. This winds up screwing him over, since he barely even remembers Sarene exists until she's got him backed into a corner and unable to do anything but concede to what she says.
    • Though not a bigot in any sense relevant to the real world, Dilaf is very determined to get rid of the Elantrians for good.
  • Captain Shannon in The First Casualty by Ben Elton. His racism, misogyny, and homophobia are some of his nicer traits.
  • Flashman is this in spades, and it's just one of his many endearing features. He's a serial adulterer who lies outrageously to woo other mens' wives, he treats the lower classes with condescension, and he's a shameless racist to boot.
  • The Guns of the South: This being a Civil War novel, you'd think the Confederates, especially Nathan Bedford Forrest would count. But the Rivington men, really Afrikaner nationalists who have traveled back in time to arm the Confederates into winning the Civil War, prove to be even worse. Forrest himself later goes after them after they try to assassinate President Robert E. Lee.
  • The Republic of Gilead in The Handmaid's Tale is already in this territory given their attitude toward women, but for further dog-kicking, is their attitude toward other religions. When expelling Jews from America, they sent large numbers of them on boats supposedly destined for Israel. The boats were deliberately sunk in the middle of the water.
  • In the Harry Potter books, anyone racist is going to be evil. Most of the Slytherins are bigoted against Muggles, with Draco Malfoy serving as the first one we meet in The Philosophers Stone. Voldemort is a thinly-veiled Hitler-analogue whose plan includes hunting down muggle-borns and enslaving and murdering muggles. One of the most egregious racists in the story is Dolores Umbridge, who treats anyone without a pure wizarding heritage as a lesser being, and anyone with a mixed-human heritage as something to hunted down and whom the Ministry of Magic assigned to Hogwarts in The Order of the Phoenix as an authority. She ends up becoming The Quisling just to have an excuse to have Muggle-borns locked up. According to Word of God, this earns her a life sentence in Azkaban after the events of Deathly Hallows.
  • Ivo Taillebois in The Hereward Trilogy: "Do you know why I allowed those Jews to sully my hall with their unclean presence?"
  • One of the easier ways to pick out the villain in an Honor Harrington novel is to find the guy whose inner monologue puts her down for being either a woman, or not born nobility, or both.
  • While villain might be too strong a word for her, Ada Haskill from In the Face of Danger is snobby, unpleasant, ungrateful and doesn't hesitate to look down on Megan, a 12-year-old girl, for being Irish.
  • Henry Bowers of Stephen King's IT is one of these in a nutshell. He hates Stanley Uris because he's Jewish, Mike Hanlon because he's black, Eddie Kaspbrak because of his asthma, Bill Denbrough because of his stutter, Richie Tozier for his glasses and his smart mouth, Ben Hanscomb because of his weight, and Beverly Marsh because she's female and poor. Really, he's an all-around asshole.
    • This will cross over into Freudian Excuse territory, but Henry is beaten by his father at home, and (in his embittered mind, anyway) needs weaker people (especially if they are outcasts) to bully in order to cope with his rage. Also, his father is a racist, who blames black people for all of his misfortunes. It doesn't excuse his actions, but it does lend some deeper meaning to this trope.
      • After killing Mike's dog, Henry tells his father, who actually praises him for doing so, and lets him drink a beer with him. This is one of the only times his father takes any time to bond with the boy, so Henry's demeanor is definitely more complex than it first appears.
    • In the same book, Eddie Kaspbrak's mother, who serves as a lesser antagonist along with the other Abusive Parents of the Losers, is given a brief POV section in which she reacts with horror at discovering one of her son's friends is a "nigger".
    • Stephen King loves this trope. Nearly all of his villains are racist or sexist in some way. Even the Overlook Hotel from The Shining refers to Halloran as a "jungle bunny." Even the buildings are racist in the King-verse.
  • The Last Hurrah (both the novel and the film) has newspaper editor Amos Force, who runs a paper that is most definitely not the Boston Globe. He is an old-money WASP who despises Irish Catholics in general and Frank Skeffington in particular. If you know anything about the history of the Boston Globe, this is not the least bit implausible.
  • In Layer Cake, as he sells out his employees to a Dirty Cop, gangster Jimmy Prince makes racial slurs against black associate Morty and is homophobic towards the protagonist, who while not gay, is not sufficiently "manly" for Jimmy's standards. Thanks to a Magnificent Bastard fellow gangster, Jimmy's crew are made privy to a tape of these comments and the protagonist shoots him in the head.
  • In Lucky Starr and the Rings of Saturn, Sten Devoure, the product of supposedly-superior Sirian genetics, reveals himself as a despicable person right away by referring to Lucky's sidekick Bigman Jones, a rather short and ugly Martian, as "that thing" and "it". The insult becomes dangerous when he tells a group of robots that Bigman is not human, and orders them to "break it."
  • Zaroff of The Most Dangerous Game got bored of hunting animals and decided to name a trope. He justifies this by mostly hunting what he considers "lesser races." (Incidentally, he applies this racism to himself—as a Cossack, he believes that savagery is an essential part of his nature.)
  • Nelly the Monster Sitter has Nelly's twin sister Asti, who openly hates the monsters that Nelly has to babysit for. When a Huffaluk family arrive at hers and Nelly's birthday party, she is quick to make her best friend turn against them, making snide comments about how ugly she finds the creatures, and even claims that she caught fleas off the Huffaluk daughter. Nelly often hops in to defend, telling Asti off for using "it" to describe Freeb (and other monsters she later meets), but negative karma catches up with Asti, leading her to being thrown on the roof of her house and left up there by the family for the rest of the afternoon. Even her friend abandons her post!
  • Överenskommelser by Simona Ahrnstedt has three villains (because one creep clearly wasn't enough), whose views on women are disgusting even by the standards of the time they live in (the 1880s). Not only do they feel that men and women have different roles in life, which would have been the consensus of the era. But these guys also feel that a man has the right to treat women like dirt, or even become a serial abuser of women. And as much as Beatrice, the story's female protagonist, becomes the most obvious victim of their abuse and their schemes, many other people are harmed as well. Even other men in the story are repulsed by them.
  • Vladimir Sharkovsky from the Alex Rider spin-off Russian Roulette. In one scene when he is in the pool, it is revealed he has a Death to Zionism tattoo with a star of David on fire, even though anti-Semitism has no bearing on the plot whatsoever.
  • Late in Sabina Kane: Red-Headed Stepchild, Sabina takes one of Clovis' men hostage at gunpoint. Clovis tells her to go ahead and kill the hostage because he deserves it for getting beaten by a girl.
  • Sisterhood Series by Fern Michaels: This sort of villain has popped up a number of times. FBI assistant director Mitch Riley refers to Harry Wong as a "slant-eye" at one point in the book Hide And Seek. Deputy Clyde calls Harry Wong by that racial epithet in the book Under The Radar, which Harry happily repays by tweaking the scum's nose and knocking him out. Before the book Lethal Justice, Alexis Thorne reveals in her thoughts that her employers chose to frame her for their crimes because she is black. Strangely, that is never brought up in the book where Alexis pays them back.
  • In Spock's World, a group of these attempt to drive Vulcan to secede from the Federation.
  • Black Iris: Justified Trope. The lead character is a mentally ill bi girl going on a revenge spree targeting people who have been bigoted and violent towards her.
  • The Star Wars Expanded Universe novels use this. While Lucas seems to have intended there to be some parallels between The Empire and the Nazis, relatively little of that shows up explicitly on screen. In books, comics, etc, both individual villains and The Empire as a whole are depicted as speciest against non-humans. (And in fact an easy way to tell which side is the bad guy side in whatever time period it might be is if they ever make a comment about human superiority).
    • Pretty blatant, really.
    • The Yuuzhan Vong of the Expanded Universe display extreme intolerance for anyone who doesn't follow their religion and lifestyle.
    • Seems like the EU just came up with a good explanation for why you don't see too many nonhumans in the Imperial military, although they apparently don't mind hiring them as bounty hunters and such.
      • The EU also makes it pretty obvious that Palpatine himself doesn't buy into such nonsense (he considers everyone to be inferior to himself). He just finds it a useful way to manipulate people, since humans are the majority of the Empire's population and center of galactic wealth and power (the Core Worlds) is also where human supremacist feelings are most widely accepted. Ensuring the loyalty of the Core World elite by oppressing the aliens is rather quicker and easier than doing the reverse.
    • There was the Diversity Alliance, an anti-human terrorist organization who plan on killing all humans with a bio-weapon that only targets humans.
  • Bob Ewell in To Kill a Mockingbird would likely be considered an extreme bigot even in the Depression-era Deep South setting where the novel is set. (In fact, portraying such a man as a villain was the whole point of the novel, which was written during the Civil Rights Era.)
  • In Ciaphas Cain novel The Traitor's Hand commissar Tomas Beije goes from a slightly annoying mix of Divided We Fall, Unknown Rival, and Obstructive Bureaucrat who barely has any time in the main plotline to being quite hateable the moment he starts throwing out sexist insults towards Colonel Kasteen.
  • In The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Captain Jaggery fits this trope to a T (granted, it is 1832). While holding the 13-year old Charlotte on trial for allegedly murdering the first mate, he reaches this conclusion:
    "So what we have here is a girl who admits she owns the weapon that murdered Mr. Hollybrass. A girl who lied about where she got it. A girl who was taught to use a blade, and learned to use it, as Mr. Grimes would have it, 'uncommon' well. A girl, who all agree, is unnatural in every way she acts. Gentlemen, do we not, as natural men, need to take heed? Is it not our duty, our obligation, to protect the natural order of the world?"
  • Mostly averted in Victoria, where the heroes are the politically incorrect faction and fight wars against such politically correct nations as the liberal New South, environmentalist Cascadia and LGBT-friendly Azania, among others. However, there is also a neo-Nazi villain state, offering an example.
  • General Metzov in The Vor Game is not only a hardliner ultra-nationalist, but he is a sexist jerk as well. He is paired with the much smarter female villain Cavilo, but in a Just Between You and Me moment tells the heroes that he's just manipulating her, since no woman would be smart enough to lead. His political incorrectness leads to his death (and an example of Eviler Than Thou) when his last words (before Cavilo shoots him in the head) are "open your legs to me bitch". Cavilo is actually more evil than Metzov, but because of his Politically Incorrect Villain traits, it's hard not to give her some sympathy or at least applause at the moment she kills him.
  • Warrior Cats: Tigerstar. very much Tigerstar. As well as his #1 follower, Darkstripe. Tigerstar parallels Hitler in several ways, and has attempted genocide in the form of public executions during a propaganda rally where he called halfClan cats "filth". Although probably the most flagrant example, it certainly isn't the only one.
  • If he wasn't bad enough, The Mad King Aerys from A Song of Ice and Fire is also very racist towards the Dornish. He reportedly dislikes his half-Dornish granddaughter Princess Rhaenys for smelling like one.
  • The Gallish knights from The Traitor Son Cycle, on top of being highly misogynistic and notorious rapists, have nothing but disdain for the common people. At one point, Jean de Vrailly proudly admits to having slaughtered countless peasants who dared to defy him, and angrily claims that in Galle, women stay quiet and don't make trouble for men.note 
  • The Divine Comedy: Most Hell-shades at least have enough medieval courtesy not to curse God, but a particularly vile thief that Dante encounters explicitly curses God and gives him a rude gesture equivalent to a middle finger. This demonstrates the defining trait of the lowest parts of Hell, the use of humanity's unique blessings (like communication) for evil.
  • Whenever censorship is present, a writer may choose to have a villain make risky political statements as a means to Get Crap Past The Radar. The examples are too many (and often too minor) to list.

    Live-Action TV 
  • After being revealed as an evil mole, Agent Ward of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. felt the need to make a rather sexist speech to Maria Hill insinuating she was only kept around for eye candy purposes.
  • Angel:
    • Billy could even uncover the latent homicidal-hatred-of-women in other men, like a virus. This power is explained as bringing a primordial part of the male psyche to the surface and putting it in charge of his brain. Which definitely borders on Unfortunate Implications, implying all men secretly hate women (but then this is Joss Whedon).
    • When Angelus appears in season 4, he uses the word "retarded" practically every other sentence. Also, most of his Hannibal Lectures to the team have misogynistic or racial overtones, although that may just have been him trying to get under their skin.
    • Mostly played for laughs, but the head of the Italian Wolfram & Heart branch had a lot of spite towards gypsies. To be fair, they showed spite when trying to assist Angel, who was cursed by gypsies.
  • The fifth season of Breaking Bad introduced a group of neo-Nazis who end up playing a very large role in the events of the season. However, their beliefs border on being an Informed Attribute. Apart from having a few swastika tattoos, they never do or say anything particularly racist, and their designation as Nazis seems to just be a shorthand way of saying "these guys are bad news." The only exception is Kenny's bizarre hatred of bike helmets.
  • Black Lightning:
    • The ASA chose a city with a large African American population, notorious for racial tension, to do experiments to make people docile; there's no way they would've chosen a white city to do that. The obvious implication is that they don't want black people to fight against injustice subjected upon them.
    • Martin Proctor of the same group makes a point of how he wants to kill Black Lightning's "black ass", and in the season one finale every other line out of his mouth expresses his bigotry for black people, while quoting "Make America Great Again".
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
    • Superpowered, psychotic misogynist priest Caleb is a proud and vocal misogynist. Every time Buffy fails to defeat him he loudly chalks it up to her being female.
    • There's Warren, too. Being a misogynist in a Whedon work is a bad career move. The number of times he uses the word "bitch" would make a good drinking game.
    • Angelus and his constant jibes at the wheelchair-bound Spike. He's got a million of 'em, ladies and gentlemen.
  • Community:
    • This is Pierce Hawthorne's defining character trait.
    Shirley: You have literally introduced me to strangers as "the black woman".
    Troy: He used to think I was Shirley's nephew. He doesn't anymore. Now, he thinks we're cousins.
    Pierce: You're not?
    Abed: He still thinks I'm a terrorist.
    Pierce: If you're not, I apologize. If you are, I'm a hero. I'm willing to take those odds.
    Annie: You said I have a "crafty Jew brain"!
    Pierce: Nobody knows how to take a compliment anymore!
    • His father, Cornelius Hawthorne, is even worse to the point of being able to find some bigoted reason to hate basically anyone.
    • The false Messiah in "Mechanics of Modern Movement" mentions that he wrote a song about race mixing entitled "Don't You Do It!"
    • Richie and Carl claim that the point of being gay is to get a job just by being gay and then "do it as well as the normals" (their words).
  • The Criminal Minds episode "Limelight" featured Jeremy Andrus, a serial killer who was severely misogynistic, to the point that he referred to women using the words "it" and "bleeder".
    • The episode "The Tribe also features Jackson "The Grandfather" Cally", a cult leader who wishes to show the world what "savage animals" the Apache tribe "really" are.
  • Doctor Who:
    • The Master, particularly his Jacobi and Simm-incarnations.
      The Master (Jacobi): "Killed by an insect... a girl! How... inappropriate."note 
      The Master (Simm): (To Marthanote  and Jacknote ) Oh look, it's the girly and the freak! Though I'm not sure which is which...
    • The episode "Human Nature" features an already fairly unlikeable snobby public schoolboy who then snidely comments to Martha, who's working undercover as a maid, "with hands that colour, how can you tell when anything's clean?". This was more to cement his unsympathetic nature rather than his evil nature, as a few scenes later he dies at the hands of some aliens in such a way that the audience is not meant to feel sorry for him.
    • While the villain of "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" already was pretty unlikable (he killed an entire crew of hibernating aliens just to steal the dinosaurs they were transporting), he reaches new levels of cruelty when he threatens the Doctor into handing over Nefertiti. She leaves with him voluntarily, and he gleefully talks about how he wants to "break" her.
    • In "Thin Ice", the very first thing that the villainous Lord Sutcliffe does is to start racially abusing the black companion Bill the instant that he sees her. The Doctor punches him.
    • "Rosa": Krasko is a racist time traveller from the far future who is trying to prevent the American Civil Rights Movement from happening by preventing Rosa Parks' famous bus ride.
  • The fourth season Farscape episode "Coup By Clam" features a security guard named Mekken who is extremely coarse and misogynistic (and it isn't just him — all the females of his native planet are badly oppressed). When Scorpius accompanies him on his tour of Moya to make sure he doesn't try anything underhanded, the guard uses the opportunity to loudly voice his relief that Moya is "controlled" by a male Pilot, among other things. And when he discovers that the mechanic he's guarding is actually a woman, he attempts to kill both her and Chiana—right before Scorpius breaks his neck.
  • Firefly: In the episode "Heart of Gold" the Villain of the Week, Rance Burgess, is misogynistic to such an extent that he apparently forces a traitorous prostitute to well... suck him off in front of his lynch mob, in order to prove his superiority over women.
  • The Flash (1990) episode "Ghost in the Machine", has the titular Ghost use the term "colored" once when he realizes his old archfoe, the Nightshade, is an African-American man.
  • In the For The People episode "Rahowa", Jay is forced to defend a white supremacist accused of shooting a politician. His closing argument, though expressing that there is plenty of reasonable doubt that said neo-nazi was actually responsible, doesn't mince words about him still being a terrible person.
  • Fresh Meat: Ralph, who's homophobic, sexist, and compares the struggles of being rich to being black.
  • Game of Thrones:
    • Joffrey is a He-Man Woman Hater, showing basically no respect for any of the women around him (which, to be fair, is not much more respect than he shows anyone else) and stating in "Dark Wings, Dark Worlds" that intelligent women do as they're told. Also, when speaking about his late uncle Renly, a not-so-closeted homosexual, he says he considered "making his perversion punishable by death." Of course, this is more to the viewers than the other characters, since it's Medieval European fantasy, and this view was the norm in actual Medieval Europe, with homosexuality usually being punishable by death-it would be more surprising if it wasn't. "The Lion and the Rose" has his re-enactment of the War of the Five Kings with dwarf entertainers. In addition to insulting several of his guests, his in-laws and his uncle at the same time, the quiet reaction from most of the crowd while Joffrey giggled like a madman, speaks volumes for how offensive they found the performance.
    • Played with in regards to his grandfather, Tywin Lannister.
      • He refers to the Northerners as "unwashed", but would treat women and savages with fairness according to their competence.
      • Tywin expresses similar disdain of homosexuals to Joffrey, albeit not nearly as hatefully. He views homosexuals as basically being mentally ill, showing what might border on Condescending Compassion. Tywin also acknowledges and admires homosexuals who show competence and ability, such as when he had Ser Loras Tyrell (the lover of the above mentioned Renly) assisting him in the vanguard for the Battle of Blackwater and says that Ser Loras is a gifted knight who would make an excellent addition to the highly respected Kingsguard for his grandson due to his abilities, regardless of how Tywin personally feels about Loras being gay.
      • Similarly to Joffrey, he expresses a disdain for women but when Cersei assumes he doesn't let her 'contribute' because she's a woman, he does make the (quite correct) point that he distrusts his daughter because she's a Smug Snake, not because she's a woman. He names The Unfavorite Tyrion as Hand of the King in his stead after Joffrey kills Ned Stark because he wants Tyrion to do damage control, something he rightly assumes Cersei isn't capable of doing. However, despite Tywin's opinion of her intelligence, it becomes clear that he sees Cersei as a brood mare to be married off to make connections and babies precisely because she's a woman. As for Tyrion, though he's willing to put Tyrion to work and doesn't deny his skills, he still hates Tyrion because he's a dwarf and thus 'not a presentable Lannister', refusing to name Tyrion as his heir so long as Jaime, the Golden Boy of the family, may potentially take up that role. Though Jaime's vows to the Kingsguard disqualify him from serving that role, Tywin is convinced he can talk/bribe/extort Jaime into quitting somehow, coming awfully close in Season 4.
    • In the History and Lore feature on the Dance of Dragons, Viserys is shown to be misogynistic against Rhaenyra's faction.
  • Glee has resident Smug Snake Straight Gay Sebastian Smythe cement his descent to full-on villain by insulting Camp Gay Kurt Hummel's fashion choices with a sexist slur, and offering to have his father, an Amoral Attorney, throw Spicy Latina Santana Lopez 'in prison with the rest of her relatives.' Or deliver them a piñata.
    • Sue is also extremely politically incorrect, with her constant fat jokes towards Finn and Mercedes, essentially forcing her cheeleaders to follow dangerous starvation diets, transphobic comments towards Unique, and her habit of giving everyone (usually insulting) nicknames based on their race, age, disability, sexual orientation, and body type.
  • Manipulative, abusive, and snobbish Evil Matriarch Veronica Harrington in The Haves And The Have Nots is intensely homophobic (the principal reason she abuses her son Jeffrey) and also racist (she won't even accept Jeffrey dating a white woman and insists that he date a "big, black woman").
  • In Season 2 of The Hour, crime kingpin Rafael Cilenti briefly abandons his Faux Affably Evil facade to randomly tell Bel that "In the end, all women are showgirls and whores."
  • iCarly: Wade Collins in "iRocked The Vote".
  • Mac, Dee, and Frank from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist examples.
    • Mac is an Armoured Closet Gay and religious fundamentalist who thinks Blackface can be done tastefully.
    • Dee has created some pretty racist characters, one of them being a ghetto Latina and another being buck-toothed Asian lady who talks funny.
    • During the discussion between Mac and Dennis over whether or not blackface can be done inoffensively, Frank says you gotta make the lips funny when doing blackface and shows pretty offensive examples of blackface to prove his point. Which obviously fails to prove his point.
    • The first episode is called "The Gang Gets Racist" and follows the gang (including Charlie and Dennis & except for Frank) as they try to prove they're not racist. They fail spectacularly.
    • Additionally, Dennis is a horrible classist, referring to people who live in the Great Plains or the desert as "trash".
  • Given the focus of Law & Order: SVU on "sexually based offenses," it's depressingly common for perps to have sexist, homophobic, transphobic or racist justifications for their crimes.
    • The guy from the episode "Execution" spoke in a similar manner as the Criminal Minds example above, actually calling his first victim "the thing" once or twice.
    • The episode "Fallacy" was FULL of people who were unrepentant jerkasses to the transgender Sympathetic Murderer (albeit even the detectives themselves veered into Noble Bigot with a Badge territory).
    • The episode "Hate" centered around a non-Muslim man who raped Muslim women and then set them on fire. He had Freudian Excuse, but absolutely nobody gave a shit.
    • It's also not uncommon for jerkass defense attorneys or uncooperative witnesses to engage in this, frequently referring to female detectives or ADAs as "honey," "sweetheart" or the more directly hostile "bitch." Fin and Amaro have also been subject to racially derogatory comments (a perp derisively addresses Amaro as "amigo," and another makes a crack about affirmative action when they both confront him).
    • Given that the case in "Raw" centers around an extremist white supremacist group, it's not entirely surprising that pretty much all the bad guys (and anyone associated with them) is this. Although one of the most vocal examples turns out to be an undercover FBI agent taking on this persona intentionally as part of the operation.
  • He's only a Jerk Ass rather than an outright villain, but one of the many ways Sawyer's jerkiness was established early in Lost was that almost every time he opened his mouth he would say something dismissive about a woman or something anti-Arab about Sayid. In fact, he basically insulted everyone for whatever they were.
    • Subverted slightly in that he was doing it on purpose in order to be hated by others as much as he hated himself.
  • M*A*S*H:
    • Frank Burns is a borderline case, usually, showing far more dislike of Koreans than necessary, often even extending to South Koreans. He stops short of resorting to racial slurs, however, something that a few even more unsavory types do, and one of his more well-known Pet the Dog moments involved helping Hawkeye expose an unintentional U.S. Army attack on a South Korean village that the brass was refusing to take responsibility for.
    • He was incredibly homophobic, however, in one episode trying to get a gay soldier court martialed for no reason other than that, even though he the only evidence was a statement the guy had made. (Which Burns had overheard.) Even Major Houlihan (often Burns' partner in any scheme involving military regulations) couldn't support him this time. Hawkeye and Trapper had to lure Burns into exposing dirt on himself that they could use to blackmail him with (they fooled him into admitting he had bought the answers to his medical school final) and "convinced" him to leave the guy alone. (A common counter to Burns' schemes; he tends to give up when he discovers he'll get in even worse trouble than a potential victim.)
    • Calling Charles Winchester a "villain" is kind of a stretch, but he showed blatant bigotry in one episode where his sister wrote to inform him she was engaged; he objected to her fiancé solely due to the fact that he was Italian (he thought such people were below his family's social class). In the same episode, to make this worse, he offended Father Mulcahy by including the Irish among people he grouped below their class. Winchester's attitude came back to haunt him, however, when he got another letter from his sister, saying her fiancé had called off the engagement because his family didn't approve of him marrying outside their faith. The revelation led to a Heel Realization for Winchester and him telegraphing a message to her to apologize in advance for the nasty letters he sent in reply to the announcement, attributing them to "Greatness of distance... and narrowness of mind." On the other hand, in "The Tooth Shall Set You Free", he eagerly helped out the others with their scheme to get rid of a bigoted major who sent the black men in his unit on dangerous missions to get them injured enough to be sent home.
  • Any villain in North and South (Trilogy) (the American one).
  • In The Pinkertons episode "Old Pap", General Sterling Price wants to create a new Confederacy where "the property rights of white men", and only white men, are respected. He feels he has the right to order any stray black person around—and punish them horrifically if they disobey.
  • The Purge:
    • David Ryker, Jane's boss, is extremely sexist. On Purge night, he hosts a party where the guests can molest women through their clothing, specifically because he isn't allowed to do it the rest of the year. If the women go along with it, they get to live.
    • Joe is later shown to be one. He insinuates Jane, who is black, only get her job because of the business she worked for wanting to fill diversity quotas, and implies that Penelope isn't a real American because she's Latina, asking what country her family is from.
  • Samurai Gourmet: The yakitori chef made some fine yakitori, but as soon as he showed his reaction to Americans waltzing into his place, bye-bye sympathy.
  • The quick way to tell who was bad in Space: Above and Beyond was their attitude toward the Tanks.
  • System Lord Baal, the long-running Starscream on Stargate SG-1, was perhaps one of the show's more appealing villains, in that his approach was somewhat more subtle and frank than the usual Always Chaotic Evil, Chaotic Stupid rhetoric of the series various Big Bads. This was balanced out by him being a blatant misogynist, making several sexist comments (usually directed at Colonel Carter) throughout the show's run.
    • He finally got his comeuppance in "The Quest, Part II" when Carter got fed up and punched him in the face.
    • Also shown by Kitano, foreshadowing the reveal that he's a Goa'uld. When Sam is called upon to demonstrate the effectiveness of Tau'ri weaponry, Kitano makes no attempt to hide his disbelief that "the female" could be any good with a gun.
  • Gul Dukat in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was a virulent speciesist and more than a little sexist, openly lusting over the women around him. He tried to conceal it early on, claiming to view Bajorans with paternalism and concern, but eventually embraced his hatred for them after Sisko forced him to admit that he was a vicious monster rather than the Anti-Hero he claimed to be.
    • When Sisko has a vision of himself and other DS9 characters as people in 1960's New York City, Dukat is a racist cop who harasses and beats him.
  • Inverted in That Mitchell and Webb Look with Captain Todger, the racist, sexist, homophobic superhero and General Drayfox, the evil but incredibly PC and sensitive supervillain.
    General Drayfox: Let him kneel before me! Unless of course he's an Orthodox Jew and has an issue with kneeling for religious reasons, in which case I'd be happy for him to pay his obeisance in whatever way he finds culturally appropriate. Mwwahahahaha!
  • The second season of Timeless has Nicholas Keynes, a World War One-era Rittenhouse member, who maintains his time's attitude about women after ending up in 2018 and taking over as the head of Rittenhouse. One of his plans is to end women's suffrage before it takes off, thus keeping women in the kitchen. In fact, this act results in his loyal Number Two Emma helping the protagonists in preventing the ploy just this one time, as she doesn't want women's equality to be rolled back. Earlier, in Season 1, it's revealed that David Rittenhouse, the founder of the Ancient Conspiracy, was even worse in that respect, seeing women as little more than sex objects and breeders and black people as slaves. Fortunately, most Rittenhouse members aren't as backward.
  • On The Wire, any time a gangster refers to Omar using an anti-gay slur instead of his name, take a shot.
  • Mel Profitt has a tendency to hurl ethnic slurs at Vinnie when he's upset with him on Wiseguy.
  • Young Dracula: Count Dracula's views on women are about what you would expect from someone born and raised in the 15th Century. Most vampires seem to share his positions.

    Professional Wrestling 
  • While working in WWC, Sucio Dutch Mantel, despite being fluent in Spanish, refused to speak it, because he felt Spanish was a "Primitive Language."
  • The Midnight Express manager Jim Cornette would frequently cross the politically correct borders when addressing black wrestlers such as Rocky King. They actually caused a riot when they whipped Brickhouse Brown with pants belts to remind him "what your grandfathers got".
  • The Gangstas of Smoky Mountain Wrestling (Mustaffa Saed, New Jack, D'Lo Brown) were a deliberate race baiting attempt who went so far as to insult the NAACP for wanting them to be peaceful, polite and politically correct. Rather than make them into effective heels for baby faces The Rock 'n' Roll Express though, the Gangstas actually made a good deal of the regular Smoky Mountain audience too frightened to appear at shows.
  • The Nation of Domination in USWA were a parody of this trope, basically being a black supremacist group primarily composed of white men trying to impress their black friends. Of course this simple joke was far too sophisticated for the WWF, who replaced most of the white men with black ones when the group came in.
  • Tasha Simone was already a Female Misogynist since at least her day USWA days in the 1990s, but if that's not enough to count, in the 2000s she also took a stance against Asians, Chinese in particular, due to a feud with Su Yung.
  • Politically incorrect Anti-Villain? CM Punk urges all you people who watch IWA Mid-South to help retarded children! He even brought vests to spread the message!
  • After Rodney Mack was kicked off of Smackdown, Theodore Long became his manager, stating that WWE, its fans and society in general were unkind to Rodney because he was black. He held challenges to demonstrate Rodney was a better wrestler than the white people that the booking favored. Teddy later took in other black wrestlers Mark Henry and Jazz, forming the stable Thuggin and Buggin Enterprises but also took white wrestler Chris Nowinski, deciding it wasn't right to be hateful toward white people. When injuries and show trades destroyed Thuggin and Buggin Enterprises, Teddy Long moved on to manage another white wrestler, Mark Jindrak, stating that Mark was underappreciated by WWE, its fans and society in general, who couldn't see he was the "Reflection of Perfection". Later, Theodore Long became Smackdown's general manager and did his best to give wrestlers equal opportunity.
  • Okay, he's mean to everyone, but heel Vince McMahon occasionally reserves his most heinous mistreatments for the disadvantaged, like when he mercilessly mocked Zack Gowen (a wrestler who had only one leg) in preparation for their match at Vengeance in 2003. Zack ended up giving Vince the (one-legged) beatdown he deserved, although Vince ultimately won the match.
  • Julius Smokes of the Rottweiler fame and later, manager of Bonesaw Jessie Brooks in New York's Valkyrie promotion, is never shy shout how his boys (or girl) are going to spread cheese all over you crackers. (They don't discriminate in their ass whippings, it's just something he likes to say)
  • Around 2004/2005, Chavo Guerrero Jr. came to the conclusion that his Hispanic heritage was a disadvantage he needed to reject to "reach his full potential". Chavo dyed his hair blond, used makeup to make his skin appear "less Mexican" then changed his name to Kerwin White. Kerwin set out to prove his whiteness by wearing khaki pants with collared polo shirts, golfing and attacking black wrestlers. To insult fans, Kerwin justified his behavior by noting on the day of his first appearance in the WWE his page had three times the traffic that Chavo's had the previous month. Kerwin also periodically updated fans on how he was adjusting to life in "Middle Class America".
  • And then there's Paul Heyman, who in his run as a heel manager was very much disparaging of Hispanic wrestlers. In an episode of Smackdown, after a match between Rey Mysterio Jr. and the late Eddie Guerrero, Heyman showed up in order to deliver a bigoted speech to them about how they can "forget about being drafted" and how he hopes that the two of them and their families get deported before ranting on about his "vision" for Smackdown. Heyman got his comeuppance quickly when he made the mistake of closing his rant with "...and there's not a man alive who's gonna stand in my way," which prompted the Undertaker to show up and kick his ass.
  • John "Bradshaw" Layfield in his JBL gimmick was racist against Asians and Latinos, and a misogynist to boot. He also couldn't stand foreigners of any kind, even if they were white. However, this did not stop him from loudly supporting all the heels, even the nonwhite ones, when he was an Affably Evil color commentator alongside Michael Cole for a year or so, and calling Cole a "xenophobe" when Cole tried to criticize foreign heels. This led to odd cases, such as when JBL would simultaneously praise Renee Dupree or Maryse while bashing France. Whether this was intended as Hypocritical Humor or was just a Zig-Zagging Trope is hard to determine. Or possibly a joke given that neither of them are French (as in, from France): they're both Canadian.
  • Staring in 2006 for TNA up to 2014 for CHIKARA, the Latin American Exchange, Konnan's LAX stable, has been welcoming of everyone... so long as they were Latin American. No love for you gringos!
  • Hinted at and then subverted (sort of) at Over the Limit 2010. After losing his Intercontinental Championship to Kofi Kingston and then getting attacked by a vengeful Matt Hardy, Scottish wrestler Drew McIntyre stormed into Theodore Long's office and demanded that Hardy be fired. When Long refused, McIntyre went berserk and went about smashing various objects in Long's office. Then he turned his attention to Long's treasured photograph of Martin Luther King, Jr., and for a few terrible moments it really looked like he was going to smash that, too. (There's a chilling moment when McIntyre seems to realize what he is doing, and he hesitates, but the transfixed look on his face is not due to a twinge of remorse but from a rush of adrenaline as it becomes clear to him the symbolic amount of power he now holds in his hands: If I were to smash this, I wouldn't just be causing a lot of grief for Teddy Long; I'd be humiliating every black person on earth. Long begged him to leave the picture alone....whereupon McIntyre apparently had a change of heart and decided that it would be better to leave the photo of the civil rights leader intact: he explained that Teddy Long was "spineless" and needed to be reminded what a true leader looked like, and also that "I am more like him than you will ever be." It was a very uncomfortable sequence on a number of levels, especially since WWE programming is supposed to be geared toward family audiences now. (McIntyre, while still officially a villain, has been getting some Pet the Dog moments lately with his kind acts toward Kelly Kelly and dedicating a match to her when she was fired.
  • R-Truth dipped into this territory after his heel turn. While bringing attention to the fact he's black and angry, and that John Cena is a white man in separate promos, he did not make any racist remarks. His turn was kicked off though by smoking in a public building, for a different kind of politically incorrect.
    • He actually inverted the trope in a sense when on one episode of Monday Night Raw R-Truth (who is black) came down to the ring dressed as a Confederate general (to make the point that he wanted to "secede" from WWE). Justified in that R-Truth had gone insane by this point (and also in that there were black Confederate soldiers toward the end of the American Civil War. The Confederate Army inducted black soldiers, slaves and free, a full year before the Union did, but that's neither here nor there).
  • Mexican America, another TNA stable. Take LAX, only limit Latin American to Mexican to the point they will attack other Mexicans for not hating other people of Latin American ethnic groups who are not Mexican, make the hatred of gringos more central and have them be spokespeople for an internal toppling of the USA that strongly resembles the Nazi takeover of Germany.
  • Stevie Richards gradually became intolerant of Mexicans while serving a commentator for Lucha Libre USA, leading him to join The Right, a whole group of anti Mexicans.
  • Alberto Del Rio was racist against ethnic Chicanos such as Rey Mysterio, (Alberto is one himself but claims to be descended from Spanish royalty) and looked down on anyone he considered a peasant (such as Sin Cara, who represents the unrepresented). After his second heel turn you can add gringos like John Cena to list too. Then during the tail end of 2015 in WWC, he had to get something off of his chest. That Mexicans were superior to Puerto Ricans, which he "demonstrated" by breaking the arm of Ray González Jr in route to challenging his father.
  • Downplayed by Billy Blade in Vendetta Pro Wrestling, where, as company founder, he tries to be politically correct but often fails miserably. Because let's face it, he doesn't trust you kind of people (used to refer to various individuals different from himself) or claims to be better than Pro Wrestling Revolution while displaying a belief in a wide variety of latin American stereotypes regarding Vintage Dragon and Lil' Cholo.
  • On Caged Heat Radio's Reality Check episode at Ring Warrior's 2013 February Fury, Kevin Sullivan told his interviewer Amber Rodriguez that she had no business being in the men's locker room and went on to say "minorities" like her had gotten their way too long when she asked why he attacked Bruce Santee "for basically no reason".
  • Jack Swagger has become one of these in 2013, debuting a new gimmick: "A Real American", an anti-immigration character who has only had this trait taken Up to Eleven with his new manager, Zeb Coulter(AKA Dutch Mantel). The latter is also fond of giving the audience The Reason You Suck Speeches about not living by their standards.
  • Ashley America made her debut in Valkyrie Women's Pro Wrestling protesting the booking of Nyla Rose, calling it immoral that they would book a "Native American" while leaving young male wrestlers out of work and reminding them the country was founded by Christopher Columbus and the pilgrims. In addition to the crawl of her All American Report urging the viewer to join Ashley's crusade to block further Valkyrie activity, it also urges them to celebrate Christopher Columbus defeating the Indians while she voices her frustration with Hania also being in Valkyrie.
  • When it was announced that La Guerrera 2 would be taking place in Chicago, Savio Vega lead Los Boricuas to the Berwyn Eagles Club at the behest of Donald Trump to turn back Blue Demon Jr and all the other Mexicans he would be leading into the country.
  • Scott Steiner hated everyone equally, but he still tended to dip into this territory every now and then. He was blatantly misogynistic (often rudely coming onto women and abusing his manager Stacy Keibler), homophobic (once called Roddy Piper a "skirt-wearing queer!" in a promo) and xenophobic (He often insulted Canada and Canadians when feuding with them, particularly Petey Williams.)

    Tabletop Games 
  • BattleTech:
    • Hard-liners in the Draconis Combine tend to be very misogynistic: it's much harder for a woman to rise to a position of power in the Draconis Combine than in any other Successor State, even though they're freely allowed to serve as warriors.
    • Some of the Clans count. It's not that they're racists or sexist; they view Freebirths as inferior to Trueborns, and are fit for nothing but to serve Trueborn warriors. The most prominent examples are Clans Smoke Jaguar and Steel Viper, who don't allow Freebirths to join the Warrior castes. This is very extreme for Clan standards, even Clan Jade Falcon and Ice Hellion allow Freebirths in their warrior armies.
  • In Dungeons & Dragons continuity, this trope occasionally pops up in order to highlight a truly malevolent or petty flavor of evil.
    • In the Dark Sun campaign, the biggest reason Athas became the hellish place it is was because of the Cleansing Wars started by the Halfling sorcerer king Rajaat, who was obsessed with returning the world to its Blue Age, an age when the world was covered by a vast ocean and ruled by halflings. To that end, he sought to exterminate all of the "impure" races, and ordered his army to wage a war of genocide against all non-humans, but eventually they turned against humans as well. Before he was defeated and imprisoned by a rebellion, the war had caused the extinction of all gnomes, orcs, goblins, kobolds, ogres, lizard men, fey races, and trolls on Athas, and the populations of the dwarves, elves, and giants had been reduced dramatically. Rajaat's own people, Halflings, fared the worst; they survived, but degenerated into savage cannibals.
    • Although their villainous role isn't their dominant presentation, the Harmonium of Planescape are noted to be extremely and violently prejudiced against "free-thinkers" of all stripes as part of their Chaos Is Evil philosophy, to the point that they historically enacted a genocidal pogrom against all non-Lawful races on their homeworld of Ortho (including the Neutral Good and Chaotic Good races!) and, in the present, they maliciously abuse, bully and threaten members of the Indeps faction. They're not officially villains, but the setting takes great delight in pointing out their Lawful Stupid and Well-Intentioned Extremist natures, and how this often backfires on them.
    • In the mainstream universe, we have two of the Demon Lords And Arch Devils who approach this trope from different angles. Kostchtchie, Demon Prince of Frost Giants, is a raging misogynist and proud of it, deriding women as worthless weaklings just barely tolerable for spawning violent new sons to wage war in his honor and demanding their lives in sacrifice when there aren't battles being fought. Even female Frost Giants are relegated to sub-class breeding stock. Malcanthet, Demon Queen of Succubi, is subtler but no less bigoted in being a misandrist; only women can be her elite Thralls, men are delegated to menial roles in her cult and considered expendable, to the point that in many Malcanthet cults, it's mandatory for male cultists to be blinded. Guess which gender is also preferred for sacrificial offerings, too.
    • In the Ravenloft setting there's Vlad Drakov, the Darklord of Falkovnia. He is of the official stance that women cannot be of any use besides breeding more men to work and fight for his armies. He also forcibly claims the right to have sex with any Falkovnian woman on her wedding night instead of her husband, something he has no qualms about taking advantage of and which means there are dozens of bastard Drakovs floating around. Vlad is also a blatant human supremacist, and Falkovnia enslaves or executes any non-humans that enter its borders at his direction. (Seeing a trend here?) Even other Darklords are repulsed by Drakov, the biggest irony being that despite being fully human with no supernatural powers, he is more of a monster than almost any Darklord who does.
    • Similarly to Malcanthet, drow culture is traditionally portrayed as being extremely misandric, due to cultural reverence of/domination by Lolth, the insane Demon Queen of Spiders. Male drow are second-class citizens barely above the slaves their culture employs, to the point that a drow female can kill a male with very little provocation. As in, it's normal for the womenfolk to butcher their lovers, sometimes as sacrifices to Lolth, sometimes just for fun, when they grow bored with them. Oh, and males refusing the sexual advances of females can be punished by death. Truthfully, the fact males are forbidden from entering the ranks of the priesthood, which holds ultimate power in their messed up theocracy of a culture, is one of the lesser ways in which the gender is repressed.
    • "Savage" humanoids like orcs and gnolls have often been portrayed as brutally patriarchal, with womenfolk delegated to providing food, sexual pleasure and offspring and holding little to no authority in comparison to their male counterparts. Pathfinder, being the Darker and Edgier D&D, likes to pay this a little more attention, and its writeups on orc and gnoll culture give particular emphasis to how savagely misogynistic they are (for example, gnoll females who fail to either bear cubs or become priestesses of Lamashtu by a certain age are ritually sacrificed), including notes on how the culture is actually perpetuated thanks to Female Misogynists — in a classic case of Stupid Evil, females who manage to exploit the loopholes and become powerful themselves tend to do everything they can to keep things from changing, so they don't have to worry about competition.
  • The Mutants & Masterminds setting Freedom City features White Knight, a white supremacist who (unknowingly) made a Deal with the Devil for flame-based superpowers and who thinks he's a superhero fighting a crusade against... well, everyone. His costume combines elements of a Klan member and a white power skinhead, and most GMS use him as someone for heroes to feel good about kicking in the junk.
    • The "Crooks!" splat for general M&M introduces a numbers of racist supervillains, and even a writeup for racism as a Weakness (Quirk: Racist, for the curious). Blitz II is the granddaughter of a Nazi super-speedster (her grandmother, the first Blitz) and has inherited Nazi ideology to the point she is the songster of a Euro-punk skinhead band called Third Generation that is massively popular amongst the Neo-Nazi underground. Iron Cross is a Nazi-created Flying Brick who still upholds Hitler's commands. Johnny Reb is a demon summoned by the Confederates during the American Civil War and bound into the body of various human racist hosts — not surprisingly, he wears what is basically a Klansman robe with a Confederate flag on the face of the hooded mask.
      • Interestingly, Johnny Reb actually only paid lip-service to racism when he was first created — to a demon, all humans were alike. Centuries of being stuck in the bodies of racists, however, has imprinted him with a racist mentality in turn.
  • The Coalition States from Rifts are the go-to bad guys of the setting due to their xenocidal attitude toward Dimensional Beings and creatures of magic. Their promotion of illiteracy and their seeking to destroy magical artifacts doesn't endear them too well to the rest of the setting, either.
  • In Warcraft: The Roleplaying Game, after the upgrade to "World of Warcraft: The Roleplaying Game", the retconned Horde faction sourcebook was written to make it clear that the previously alluded to misogynistic aspects of Troll culture were only practiced by the still-evil tribes, and "good guy" Trolls who had joined the Horde, like the Darkspears and Revantusks, were much more egalitarian.
  • Everyone in Warhammer 40,000 is one of these, including the heroes (if they can even be considered heroes).
    • The only races that are arguably not politically incorrect are the Orks and the Tyranids. Sure, the Orks will kill anything that isn't considered orky enough, but that includes other Orks. And they don't kill out of spite or bigotry, they only fight because they think it's fun and it's what they're good at. The Tyranids, being a Horde of Alien Locusts, are essentially driven by instinct to devour all biomass in the galaxy before moving on to the next.
    • Depending on the source, Khorne also avoids this: The Blood God only wants the blood to be spilled, he has no care about who spills it. Even non-combatens are not outright hated, although they will never gain his favour either. He is only racist towards psykers, and again depending on the source, he doesn´t generally hate psykers, as long as they don´t use their power in battle because he considers that cheating. Of course in other sources his followers just either enslave or murder any psyker or even any non-combatant they get their hands on, so this may vary.
  • In Wicked Fantasy, the male Uz keep their females as abject slaves through brutal regimes of Mind Rape, amuse themselves by having the females fight gladiatorial combat bouts, trade them like property, and impregnate them only to then telepathically kill the unborn child in order to produce the power-boosting, life-sustaining "dark water" they depend on.

  • Lucy the Slut in Avenue Q says racial slurs against Kate Monster when she sees her and Princeton together.
    • Also the teacher that Kate was assisting has touches of this, including saying something along the lines of "I should have known better than to rely on one of you people" when Kate misses an appointment to take over the class.
    • Averted when a song points out that everybody is a little bit racist.
  • Finian's Rainbow has Rawkins, a bigoted Senator, who due to a wish made on top of Leprechaun's pot of gold is turned into an African-American.
  • High Priest Caiaphas, his father-in-law Annas, and their various flunkies display heavy classist prejudices in the early portions of Jesus Christ Superstar, referring to Jesus' followers as "blockheads", "fools", "half-witted", and a "rabble." In fact, they often seem to be venting their hatred more at the common people of Judaea more than at Jesus himself. Jesus calls them on it when he says: "Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?"
  • Othello's Iago is racist, sexist, xenophobic — you name it. This is obviously to establish him as a bad man but he still inexplicably has his fans. His stooge Roderigo is also disgustingly racist.

    Video Games 
  • In Anchorhead, the Big Bad Croesus, possessing the protagonist's husband Michael uses sexist insults against the female protagonist.
  • Comes up in both Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag: In the former case, the protagonist ancestor Assassin is for all intents and purposes Mohawk and reacted to as such by white colonists, with the more thuggish characters referencing his heritagenote . In the latter, African slavery is a topic that comes up multiple times and almost everyone who's okay with it or even participating is depicted quite unsympathetically; in fact, one of the first foreshadowings to Benjamin Hornigold's eventual defection from Nassau is when he questions Edward Kenway's willingness to let his Trinidadian quartermaster carry a pistol, and Woode Rogers is notably in the slave trade despite his own Templar Grand Master "asking" him to quit itnote , while Julien du Casse quit the slave trade to become a sell-sword, which was how he came across the Templars to begin with.
    • In the Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry, the "Gouverneur de Fayet"note  flat-out claims that slaves "are not even human! Without the discipline and guidance of their masters, they turn to rebellion, murder, like you." Given the time period this takes place in, this is a common belief of the time and will continue to be so for centuries to come.
  • Batman: Arkham Series:
    • This version of Penguin is misogynistic (referring to both Catwoman and Harley Quinn as either a "bitch" or a "harlot" at various times), homophobic (calling his own men "ponces" and Nightwing a "fairy"), racist (the first cop he kills is black and he calls another black cop "boy"), and ableist (referring to psychotic mental patients in an audio log as "dribbling monkeys"). Tracey Buxton, one of the Penguin's Paid Harems in Arkham Origins, shares her boss's homophobia.
    • The Riddler is a Smug Snake who thinks he's smarter than everyone else and will insult based on what he perceives to be their intellect. In Challenge Maps, he's also prone to spouting slurs against the mentally disabled like Penguin above.
  • Most of the Founders in Bioshock Infinite are all fairly racist, which is appropriate for the time period. Comstock however takes it to another level, outright despising Lincoln for emancipating the blacks from their "rightful place" in society and is credited as "The Hero of Wounded Knee". Similarly, there's also the Fraternal Order of the Raven, who revere John Wilkes Booth as their patron saint and are more or less The Klan in all-but name and color scheme (they favor blue robes rather than white). But the Vox aren't so squeeky clean either as they eagerly kill people just for having an upper class or "intellectual" background.
  • Yuuki Terumi of Blazblue is an utterly loathsome example of a misogynistic villain. He utterly hates women and takes a special sadistic glee in Breaking The Cutie. His Fantastic Racism towards practically anything and everything supernatural and/or non-human is also noteworthy (particularly since he, himself, is a ghost possessing an Artificial Human). And then there's, of course, also the fact that he's an unrepentant Child Hater... It might be easier to just say that Terumi Hates Everyone Equally, but for different petty, prejudiced, and generally despicable reasons.
  • General Sarrano from Bulletstorm is one, on top of being genocidal and EXTREMELY foul-mouthed.
  • Lord Nemesis in City of Heroes started as a Prussian tinkerer in the Civil War. His more despicable acts include killing off an alternate Earth full of people, who 'didn't count' because they were black, and in a more personal moment, killing an African member of Longbow who's been your sympathetic ally. He's also sexist but that gets Played for Laughs when he talks down to Lady Grey.
  • The Watcher in Darksiders isn't content with merely being a Jerkass to War. He also talks down to the Archangel Uriel, calling her "wench" and "whore" while ordering War to finish her off. War refuses to obey despite the Watcher's attempts to force obedience. Like the rest of his jackassery, this bites the Watcher in the ass when Uriel chops off his hand and breaks the Seventh Seal, freeing War in the process.
  • Also from Bioware is the Tevinter Imperium in Dragon Age. Not only does the Imperium practice slavery, they are also quite homophobic if Dorian is any indication, who reveals that his father attempted to change his sexual orientation through a blood magic ritual, a truly terrifying case a Nightmare Fuel considering just how very, very real Dorian's story is for a lot of people. It's not an issue of "moral" disapproval at least. Tevinter's ruling class is practicing a nation-wide eugenics program to create the ultimate mage. A gay man or a lesbian who doesn't take a beard won't be contributing to that, and if he or she is an only child like Dorian is...
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has two major examples:
    • The Thalmor of the Aldmeri Dominion in general despise humans in general, and cannot handle the thought of one of them having ascended and sharing a seat in the pantheon with the eight other Divines. They're trying to erase Talos from the pantheon to erase even the possibility of man from Tamriel, even if it unmakes reality as a result!
    • The Stormcloaks, one of the playable factions of the game, do not treat races other than Nords too well, as can be seen if you take a look around cities and villages that they control.
  • Grand Theft Auto IV:
    • Vladimir Glebov is a classist who styles himself as a Russian aristocrat that repeatedly calls Niko and Roman Bellic "serfs", "yokels" and "peasants" due to their Serbian background.
    • Rocco Pelosi in The Ballad of Gay Tony throws racial and homophobic slurs against Tony and Luis like commas. In fact, not just them but he uses racial slurs towards about anyone, since he refers to Triad gangsters as "chinks".
    • The Angels of Death in The Lost and the Damned are a white supremacist/Neo-Nazi biker gang to contrast their rivals, the Lost Brotherhood. Their in-game website notes they were formed by people unsatisfied with a non-segregated society and they contain some subtle and not-so-subtle references to Nazism, such as deriving their name from Nazi scientist Josef Mengele, nicknamed Angel of Death. Amusingly, when you assault their clubhouse, you find them playing hip-hop which is an odd musical choice for a white supremacist gang.
    • Brian, despite being a member of the Lost, throws some anti-Semitic insults towards Johnny, quickly establishing himself as a Hate Sink. He also calls Triad gangsters "slopes" and says he can't tell the difference between Slavs when he refers to Niko as a Pole.
    • Billy Grey when arranging with a Chinese Triad to ambush and kill Johnny, he tells him he has no use for a Jew asshole, and also calls the Triad a "yellow little devil" to his face while saying he loved watching them die on TV.
    • Ray Bulgarin throws several homophobic slurs towards "Gay" Tony Prince (though not to his face) and makes fun of Luis by calling him his lover, later calling him a "Dominican bitch".
  • Grand Theft Auto V:
    • The self-proclaimed "Civil Border Patrol" minutemen, Joe and Josef, are extremely xenophobic and jingoistic thugs that claim to be protecting America from illegal aliens, but it's clear that they're just using it as an excuse to harass Hispanics. What makes them inherently hypocritical is that Josef is Russian Mail-Order Groom who can barely speak a word of English and knows nothing of American customs, but is just as virulently racist as Joe.
    Josef: (in Russian) I will defend this nation from multiculturalism!
    • Though never encountered in the game and only heard/seen in political ads, Governor candidate Jock Cranley hates gays, immigrants, cripples, affirmative action and idescribes himself as a National Socialist in one ad. He is very self-aware about this trope and uses it as advantage, with his campaign boiling down to "Yes, I am dick. But at least, you know I am a dick".
  • Fallout:
    • The Enclave from Fallout 2 (and 3) have as their goal the complete extermination of all people exposed to radiation and FEV in the postwar world. Why? Because this makes them "mutants", and the must be wiped out to make way for the last pure humans- the Enclave themselves. It's not a surprise, considering the Enclave were the direct descendants of the prewar government of Fallout's USA. As revealed in 3 and New Vegas, the prewar USA had death camps for Chinese-Americans during the Sino-American War.
    • Caesar's Legion in Fallout: New Vegas takes this to absurd levels. It enslaves all women in their territory, believing them useless as anything other than breeders and servants. Women in the Legion are slaves who are raped and brutalized by the soldiers daily. In addition, they exterminate the homosexuals, mentally handicapped, ghouls, super mutants, sick, elderly, physically handicapped, intellectuals, alcoholics / drug addicts, doctors, and scientists in the territory they conquer.
    • Lanius is the worst of the lot. He actively hates women, calling them "bitches", and even thinks that the NCR's fair treatment of them is their single greatest shortcoming. In the Final Battle, he pretty much threatens to drag a defeated female Courier back to his tent to rape her, to make her "learn her place". He also has a genocidal hatred of every non-Legion culture. If the Legion wins in the ending, he'll remorselessly butcher every minor faction, whereas even Caesar himself would've let some of them go or get away with regular conquest and taxes.
    • Actually averted with Caesar himself. Lead Designer Joshua Sawyer has noted that everyone in the Legion is Caesar's slave. Sure, the women have be baby-making machines and perform some backbreaking manual labor, but the men are conscripted into the army as teenagers and forced to serve until they die (Chief Hanlon remarks that it's rare for Legion men to survive longer than 10 years after conscription). They're beaten and abused by their superiors and have every inch of humanity drained from them, turning them into mindless killers and marauders totally dedicated to Caesar, whose only purpose in life is to be used as Cannon Fodder.
  • In Higurashi: When They Cry, shortly after being revealed as the real villain Takano tells Satoko (who she has at gunpoint) that she'll let her go if she can guess whether Broccoli or Cauliflower is green... knowing that the girl is colorblind (and violating doctor-patient confidentiality to do so). And when she guesses right she shoots her, anyways.
  • Lazarus has a moment in I Miss the Sunrise. If you make Ros a lacertian, Lazarus will sneer that s/he is "one of those disgusting lizard things," making him the only character in the game to express such Fantastic Racism. Given that the developer is a proud reptile lover, this is clearly used as a mark against him.
  • Quite a bit of Renegade choices in Mass Effect follow this trope, ranging from insulting your non-human teammates to actual genocide and supporting a "humans first" political party.
    • And then there's Cerberus (appropriately enough, the Renegade options while you're working for them in 2 consist of endorsing and supporting them). The Illusive Man is bad enough, but Kai Leng, especially in the novels, is a racist douchebag of the first order.
  • Dr. Weil from Megaman Zero towards Reploids, who are essentially fully sentient androids. He eventually treats his fellow humans in much the same manner he treats the Reploids and Weil's methods of enforcing things as he believes they should be resulted in a series of wars that not only killed a majority of the world's population but rendered most of the planet uninhabitable. It becomes apparent by the end of the fourth installment that this is because Weil is ultimately just a hateful, malicious man who only wants torture others and lord over them in a dystopic nightmare.
  • The demon Baalbisan from Neverwinter Nights 2 is a misogynist of epic proportions, making several disparaging remarks against any female party members you bring to the area he appears in, and insulting the Player Character regardless of their gender because he mistakes male characters for "weak females". The only woman he's ever shown to speak to with anything resembling respect is Shandra Jerro, and that's only because he's trapped in a summoning circle and she has the only means to free him.
  • Eddie Gluskin of Outlast is a psychotic Serial Killer who, due to being sexually abused by his father and his uncle as a child, went on a misogynistic rampage, trying to force women to marry him and murdering them when they naturally refused. Being moved to Mount Massive and being Mind Raped turned his Ax-Crazy Up to Eleven—he takes on the persona of a groom seeking a wife, and moves his behaviour to include men as well, attempting to "solve" the little issue of men not being able to get pregnant by violently castrating them in order to use the resultant gaping wound as a vagina. Which, needless to say, kills them, either directly or when he butchers them for screaming/pleading too much during surgery. Although he feigns being a 50s-style romantic sweetheart, even his "nice guy" dialogue makes it clear he objectifies women as good only for having children and he would almost certainly be a classic "Stay in the Kitchen" flavor of asshole if he weren't a crazy murderer. As he is a crazy murderer, he switches to violent fits of fury at being denied, chasing after whichever unfortunate has earned his wrath, screaming misogynistic slurs as he seeks to brutally kill them. Even when feigning "nice guy", Eddie casually spits misogynistic comments, deriding his past victims as "whores" and "sluts".
  • In [PROTOTYPE], Hope, Idaho was used for an experiment to develop a virus that might as well be Syphon Filter.
    • In [PROTOTYPE 2], You learn of Project New Hope in a sidequest chain, which is a virus that's aimed to sterilize the poor people, while this is bad on its own, the scientists gleefully bragging to Heller go out of their way to specifically say "Especially the immigrants". Heller's response to this is one of the most gleeful moments of Laser-Guided Karma in the game.
  • Ad Avis, one of the main Big Bads in Quest for Glory, has this as part of his backstory. He went out to train under the Dark Master, one of the most powerful wizards in existence. When he finally tracked him down, he learned it was a she. He was immediately insulted at the thought of a woman being better than him, and challenged her to a duel. He lost, was enslaved for fifty years, and then cursed to become a vampire upon death.
  • Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse reveals Tamagami, Japan's Minister of Defense and a major figure of Japan's pre-Firmament past, to be a nationalist asshole who wanted Japan rid of all foreign influence (especially those of the U.S., Russia, and China) and dabbled in experimenting with humans in order to create the National Defense Divinities and summon Izanami in a bid to destroy Japan and rebuild it from scratch.
  • General Tsao of Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves responds to Jing King's unwillingness to marry him with: "She's a woman. She doesn't know up from down!" which makes smacking him down a moment later all the more sweet.
  • Copperfield and the Creeper from The Suffering: Ties That Bind. One's a slave hunter with an approach to work taken from The Most Dangerous Game; the other's a misogynistic ex-pimp serial killer who uses the corpses of his victims as Combat Tentacles.
  • The titular MacGuffin of Syphon Filter is a virus designed to target specific races.
  • Vampyr: Lord Redgrave is the Vampire Monarch of London and chairman of the Ascalon Club, a vampire council that forbids the admission of women since he views them as "fickle beings, specially if they are immortal".
  • Double Subverted with Rutger in A Very Long Rope to the Top of the Sky. Though the story seems like it'll set him up as one — he's a narrow-minded nationalistic military Jerkass — he actually seems to be a case of Equal-Opportunity Evil. In one side scene he expresses sympathy over Ivy and Mint's Wingless status, as he is a commoner himself and thus feels some empathy for those born into poor circumstances. He's not a He-Man Woman Hater either, as the army contains female soldiers, and he respects Ivy's strength — he even defends her when she's sexually harassed at one point. Except in one of the bonus endings in New Game+, he uses a virtual reality chamber to create a naked clone of Yvette to amuse himself, painting him as a sleazy misogynist.
  • In Warcraft III, Lord Garithos is shown as an extremely racist commander who insults and degrades non-humans and incarcerated the Blood Elves for not staying in a doomed base to die as he ordered. When he's finally backstabbed by Sylvanas Windrunner, one doesn't feel sorry for him.
  • Way Of The Samurai 4 has mr. Uchimada as a recurring villain during the homeless questline. Uchimada is a very rich man and an extreme Neat Freak, who even has his own guards called Clean Samurai. His obsession for cleanness goes so far, that he has no qualms about killing homeless people, as he deems these to be unclean.
  • Most of the Wolfenstein games use the Nazis as generic evil supervillains for guns-blazing action, and don't get into the Nazis' ideology of racial supremacy. The New Order, however, has this front and center. One of the Nazis' first actions is gunning down mentally-disabled in a psychiatric hospital. J, a black man, says that if he tried walking the streets in the open, he'd be shot on sight — he also calls out American-born B.J Blazkowitz on the fact that the US was just as racist as the Nazis in many ways, and the Nazis are essentially doing nothing but putting into practice what many "white folk" preached. Your first encounter with one of the villains is her making B.J. take a racial purity test, with a subtle undercurrent of dread, as B.J. is Polish and half-Jewish. Loudspeakers in Berlin blare out how Germans are "superior beings." In Forced Labor Camp Belica, the warden compares the inmates to cancerous tumors on society and herself to a doctor. Finally, Deathshead himself spends most of the climax claiming that he has helped build the ultimate civilization, which racially-inferior degenerates are trying to tear down — rather hypocritically, since by this point you've learned he stole all of his advanced technology from a cache created by a Judaic sect of Mad Scientists who viewed scientific achievements as a sacrament to God.

    Web Comics 
  • In Dumbing of Age, the "villain" status of Raidah and her group is questionable, but her friend Char definitely gets a Jerkass moment here.
    Char: Yeah, and take your retarded kid with you!
    Raidah: Char, no. Come on. Don't say that.
    Char: Oh, right. We're in public.
    Raidah: Oh, right, we're in the universe.
  • Villain Protagonist Black Mage from 8-Bit Theater demonstrates a ludicrous level of racism in one strip, acting like an offensive Japanese stereotype while impersonating Black Belt. White Mage points out that not only is it offensive, but Black Belt isn't even Asian to begin with.
    • He also practices Fantastic Racism. His only qualms about eating his teammates is that he "just didn't want to eat that greasy, foreign" elf. Thief returns the sentiment and also hates the dwarves, because everyone in 8-Bit is evil, so everyone is racist. Black Mage is the worst by far.
    • No mention of his objectification of White Mage? Because I could've sworn that his sentiment that he was okay with boning her as long as her body was still somewhat warm was politically (and ethically and morally) incorrect. Only reason why he avoids being flat-out sexistic/chauvinistic is because, White Mage aside, he seems to consider women equal to men.
  • Jean-Marie from Fairy Dust uses racism to rationalise guilt away over the mission to attack an island's native troll population. He also says sexist things early on, but had just had a concussion and had reverted to juvenile humour while stressed and confused.
  • If anyone thought it was a coincidence that Homestuck's Lord English keeps enslaving women into eternal servitude and his second-in-command likes to manipulate young girls into doing his bidding, that was thoroughly disproved by the fact that Caliborn, essentially LE's younger self, is incredibly sexist and never shows any respect to anyone he doesn't consider an "alpha male."
  • General Tarquin from The Order of the Stick is Affably Evil incarnate at first glance, but is The Bluebeard under the surface. So far, he's had no less than nine wives, one of whom died 'of mysterious circumstances' (though it turns out that he actually had nothing to do with that) and at least one of whom was tortured into accepting (i.e, he had her feet frozen in a block of ice). His attitude to women more generally is summed up by the fact that at one point a "casually sexist anecdote" is treated as Something Only They Would Say.
    • He treats men about as badly—it's just that he's not interested in having sex with them, so they're more likely to just be imprisoned or executed.
    • Redcloak, The Dragon of Xykon, hates humans and humanoid creatures because of the prejudice he experienced as a goblin from human(oid)s. He also used to hate hobgoblins until one saved his life because he was a leader of a group of hobgoblins during the time.
    • After Xykon's lichdom he became disgusted with the living, considering sex with them gross and referring to them as meatbags or sickening pouches of warm goo. Not that he cares about the undead but he doesn't want to vomit because of their presence.
  • This Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal portrays an accidental example where Lex Luthor gloats about how his poisoning the water supply will soon kill a lot of people, only to be embarrassed when Superman points out to him that all the people he intended to kill turned out to be minorities and destitute. Luthor unsuccessfully tries to clarify that his intentions were not racist or classist.
  • Dr. Nofun from Sluggy Freelance has comically intense misogyny, alternately painting women as stupid and useless, and evil schemers out to destroy all men. Subverted when it turns out to be just an act — the weak-willed women and terrified men that would want to work for someone who shows this kind of behavior are easy to manipulate.
  • Carville in Maggot Boy: Apocalypse Cultist, kidnapper, murderer of his own friends... and a jerkass who purposely refers to transgender characters as the wrong gender. Not only does it make him a Hate Sink in record time, it reveals that a lot of his reluctant allies would be rid of him in a heartbeat.
  • Most demons from Slightly Damned in general hate angels.(due to their divine mandated war that's been going on the past few centuries) and view medians as lesser beings but Dakos in particular stands out as he completely mistrusts the rogue angel Verammi and the currently unnamed angel assisting them in hell while the other demons have accepted them. He is also an ableist as he refers to Iratu and others as a "generation of cripples" and claims that they will ruin of hell as it's implied demons with disabilities where unable to serve in hell's army till recently.
  • Every villain in The Adventures of Gyno-Star is this, since the comic is a Progressive superhero fighting for Social Justice.

    Web Originals 
  • Ask That Guy with the Glasses
    Ask That Guy: My philosophy is, if the colour's not on a person's skin, it's not worth hating.
  • Lampshaded hilariously in Berserk Abridged:
    Casca: What, are you reading from a book of sexist villain cliches?
    Adon Corbowitz: Uh-oh, I didn't miss any, did I?
  • Tyce from Deagle Nation became a neo-nazi over the course of 2014, eventually shaving his head and proudly proclaiming himself a skinhead who is for white and skeleton rights. He ended up getting beat up by Jace and Eli after Operation Tupacalypse.
  • Notably, during the Downfall Hitler's interview with Inglourious Hitler, the latter is anti-Semitic while the former isn't. Of course, seeing as Downfall Hitler has to put up with the antics of Fegelein and others on a daily basis, this may come across Pragmatic Villainy as well.
    Inglourious Hitler: I'm a much more successful Hitler than you will ever be. You don't even hate the Jews, which a Hitler is supposed to do!
    Hitler: I have no reason to hate the Jews.
    Inglourious Hitler: You're a traitorous Zionist Hitler!
    • The Downfall Hitler is a case of Depending on the Writer though; he'll act like a bigot like he was in real life, or he won't.
  • Dragon Ball Z Abridged:
    Oozaru Vegeta: Hey, Kakarot! What's the opposite of Christopher Walken?
    Goku: Huh?
    Vegeta: Christopher REEVE! *Crushes Goku's legs*
    Goku: AAAAGH! That was in terrible taste!
    Vegeta: Don't care! Evil! *Crushes*
    • While technically no longer a villain by this point, during Vegeta's battle with Android 18, he keeps hurling sexist insults at her, culminating in calling her the C-word to everyone's shock. Which makes 18 beating the crap out of Vegeta immediately afterwards all the more satisfying.
    • Freeza, as in the source material, hates the Saiyan "monkeys," and keeps calling them that — even in the Plan To Eradicate Christmas special, where Turles, a Saiyan, is on his side — and gets it from him and Vegeta:
    Vegeta: Turles, right?
    Turles: Yes! (realizes who he's talking to) Oh my god, Prince Vegeta?
    Vegeta: How's the tree doing?
    Turles: Destroyed...
    Vegeta: And this is why we don't let the lower class have nice things!
    Gohan: And heeeeeere we go with the politics.
    Freeza: So, monkeys!
    Turles: Dude!
    Gohan: And the racism!
  • DSBT InsaniT: While 'villain' is a bit harsh, Alex still makes the assumption that one of the girls chose the mall for the group to go to in 'Store Story', because "girls go clothes shopping and buy a ton of useless shit."
  • A Giant Sucking Sound: Stormfront, a far-right terrorist group, plays this dead straight, ranting about Jews and blacks in their press communiques and killing Jewish celebrities like Paul Wellstone, Steven Spielberg, and Chuck Schumer.
  • Hellsing Ultimate Abridged's version of Enrico Maxwell plays with this. His first interactions with Integra in episode 3 show that he looks down on women and Protestants, but he's willing to put aside differences with the Hellsing Organization on facing the larger threat that is Millennium. He leans towards this trope in episode 6, though it's still played with. While he complains about Pope Francis' stances on the poor and homosexuals and declares himself as the new Pope, he draws the line on hate crimes and bigotry, even shouting at the KKK leader that "[he] needs to chill". As of episode 8, Maxwell plays this trope completely straight, unleashing a genocidal bloodbath on the citizens of London and cursing out the Temple Beth-Zion for bailing the fight as Maxwell and his forces are left to be wiped out by Alucard's #LifeHack.
  • Played for Laughs by Mastermind who, among other things, schedules an appointment with one of his lackeys just to harass him for being named "Gaylord."
    Mastermind: Because your name doesn't have the word "gay" in it.
    Gaylord: It also has the word "lord"!
    Mastermind: Because it's not that you like to have a gay (bleep) up the ass!
  • Although he is consistently shown to not be racist, anti-Semitic, or homophobic and is disgusted that people think he is, Mr Deity is misogynistic and really, really hates atheists.
  • In New Vindicators, there are a few, but Forrest Bedford is the standout. He's the head of a Church Militant that hates superpowered beings, but he was also in the KKK and regularly tosses around racial epithets. As a Genius Bonus, he's named after Nathan Bedford Forrest, the first Grand Wizard of the KKK.
  • Played for Laughs in Nullmetal Alchemist where Fuhrer King Bradley has a national Make Fun Of Mexicans Day—where people have to take part in stereotypical Mexican things (e.g. wear a sombrero, refer to people as "gringos" and " Trivialize the cultural history of entire race of people with offensive stereotypes"). Though he enjoys killing and tormenting all foreigners, he jokes that he doesn't even need an excuse to do so because he's the Fuhrer.
  • Weilks in Void Domain: a necromancer who hawks stolen organs on the black market, very much Would Hurt a Child, and has a terribly foul mouth regarding women, right up until one of his female victims tears his heart out of his chest.
  • Aunt Despair and Uncle Lies from The Nostalgia Critic. The former is a Trump supporter and the latter is an MRA, and both are Abusive Parents.
  • Just about every antagonist in Queer Duck is a homophobe, the most recurring villain being a caricature of real-life Heteronormative Crusader Dr. Laura Schlessinger.

    Western Animation 
  • Some of the "villains" the Warners faced in Animaniacs. Just compare Ludwig von Beethoven to Abraham Lincoln. Beethoven calls them "horrid children" and is suffering Amusing Injuries by the short's end. Meanwhile Lincoln is nice to them (although clearly annoyed by their wackiness) and they help him with his speech. He and Beethoven were working on something, but how they treat the Warners at the start of short affects how differently they are "helped" by them.
  • Archer:
    • Anthony Bourdain as shown in this exchange:
    Ray: Should you be smoking in here?
    Bourdain: Should you be flaming in here? Boom-bumper!
    • Malory Archer is a politically incorrect Anti-Hero bordering on Villain Protagonist. She hates the Irish and isn't afraid to show it. She's also made racist comments regarding blacks and the Japanese; when she shoots a Yakuza member in "Drift Problem", she shouts "that's for Pearl Harbor!"
    • The Welsh terrorist from "Achub Y Morfilod" claims that he's not going to drive real people out of their home, just English ones.
  • Both played straight and inverted in Avatar: The Last Airbender, in which the antagonistic Fire Nation promotes the view that all other cultures in the world are inferior to their own, yet has the greatest degree of gender parity out of all the nations, with a high proportion of women in military and police positions. Fire Lord Ozai, the Big Bad, even favored his younger daughter over his older son, making her his heir simply because she was more competent and more trustworthy. (Granted, for him competent = psychotic, and trustworthy = unquestioningly going along with his immoral schemes and war crimes.)
    • Played straighter, in a minor way, with Zuko in the first season (when he's most antagonistic). He spends a lot of time using "peasant" as an insult toward Katara and Sokka.
  • The eponymous villain of the Batman: The Animated Series episode Lockup was a fairly obvious GOP pundit parody. Lyle Bolton constantly says that the "liberal media," "coddling doctors," and "gutless police" are responsible for supercrime in Gotham. He believes that the criminals at Arkham don't deserve privileges or even the most basic humane treatment. Obviously, he's hyperbolized, but it's still pretty severe for a kids' show.
    • When the character was introduced into the "official" Batman comics, the moral complexity of Lock-Up was (briefly) addressed by Commissioner Gordon, who admitted that there were times when he sympathized with Lyle Bolton. It is certainly easy to understand Bolton's frustration of having to deal with, year after year, some of the most monstrous human beings (and in one case an animalistic mutant!) who have ever existed, who are collectively responsible for over a thousand deaths over the past decade and have expressed no desire to reform. And since Arkham Asylum is infamously a Cardboard Prison, that would almost clinch the argument — if Lock-Up were not so adamant about tracking down and brutally imprisoning all murderers, even young kids in street gangs who are not psychopathic and who have only killed in the heat of the moment.
  • Ben 10: Alien Force gives use the Highbreeds, who are basically an alien version of the Nazis. In the same vein, the Forever Knights were portrayed as a paramilitary, anti-alien group with fanatical behaviour during the Alien Force/Ultimate Alien era (though they were more stoic and rational scientists in the original series).
  • In the Bump in the Night episode "Comfort Schmumfort", the alien invaders Sleemoth and Gloog dismiss Molly Coddle as not being a threat just because she's a girl. Right in front of her, even.
  • The Eco-Villains from Captain Planet and the Planeteers would occasionally show signs of being bigoted, just in case it wasn't clear to the audience that they are the bad guys.
    • In the episode "OK at the Gunfight Corral", Hoggish Greedly hired a bunch of racist white men to attack the local "Injuns" so he could claim their land as his and sell it to Sly Sludge, but otherwise he never even commented on anybody's race or did anything remotely discriminatory.
    • Verminous Skumm harassed and lied about a boy who had HIV, and he gave nuclear detonators to people fighting in the The Troubles, The Apartheid Era, and the Arab–Israeli Conflict, in an attempt to discredit the entire human race.
    • Looten Plunder in "Bitter Waters", using terms like 'chief', 'wampum', referring to the (unnamed, though they're most likely primarily based on Hopi, considering the desert land) as his "red brothers". When corrected by the chairman of the local tribal council, his henchman Argos Bleak angrily declares that he "doesn't care if he's the blinkin' medicine man".
  • The Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys episode "Felonious Monks" has the villain Apax show signs of being sexist when he makes the assumption that Shao Lin isn't a threat to him simply because she's female.
  • In Celebrity Deathmatch, there's a fight where John Rocker battles Derek Jeter. Unsurprisingly, John Rocker doesn't get the most sympathetic of portrayals and is electrocuted to death by the match's end.
    • For context, Rocker had given a long interview, at one point of which he just started randomly complaining and saying derisive things about people in New York, with one of those comments a homophobic slur. It fits the trope in that remarks were completely spontaneous and not pertinent to the subject at hand. Still the public outcry against this interview was so ferocious that many actually came to Rocker's defense, surmising that he was just a blunt man with poor social skills, and not a monster.
    • Rocker also made an appearance as a character on Saturday Night Live, where he was played by Will Ferrell in full-blown blustering mode. Appearing on "Weekend Update", Ferrell had him insult everyone under the sun, and refer to the studio audience members as "homo-Mexicans."
  • The Extreme Ghostbusters episode "True Face of a Monster" had a golem being created to ward off a gang of Anti-Semitic jerks who were vandalizing a synagogue. One member of the group is also shown to be disdainful toward Roland Jackson, who happens to be black.
  • In the Silent Era Felix the Cat cartoon "Uncle Tom's Crabbin", Felix travels into the deep south and meets Uncle Tom. Not long after, Felix faces off against Simon Legree, who was angered at Tom's music waking up him, promptly whipping him (off-screen) and smashing his banjo apart. Felix is on Tom's side the whole cartoon, quickly improvising a new banjo for him, and when Simon's wrath is incured again, Felix has Legree chase after him. When Legree fails to catch Felix, he sicks a hunting dog on Felix, which the cat proceeds to beat to a pulp.
  • In Futurama there was Leela's old martial arts instructor, Master Fnog; clearly a chauvinist, who claimed she not have "the will of the warrior" but the will of "a schoolmarm" or "housewife." (Even though she did excellently in his class.) In fact, when she eventually confronted him years later — and kicked his ass good — he didn't deny his true intentions, or that he was a jerk, saying, "You always were my best student... Good thing I was such a lousy teacher!" (He even goes so far as to tell her "See you in girl hell! I'll be in boy hell — much nicer!")
    • Zapp Brannigan is another example. The Earth military banned women from serving, not because of societal prejudice, but to prevent his constant sexual harassment.
    • Leo Wong. Racist, sexist, classist, basically every type of bigot in the book.
  • Generator Rex: the Constortium, who are part of the Big Bad Ensemble in season 3, are incredibly obvious misogynists. Since their lieutenant Black Knight is a Magnificent Bitch and a Dark Action Girl, this ends up bitting them VERY hard in the ass...
  • The Northwest family in Gravity Falls is mostly composed of a bunch of classists snobs and a painting in "Northwest Mansion Mystery" shows one of their ancestors cheating a Native American.
  • In a case of Adaptational Villainy, Ronan the Accuser in Guardians of the Galaxy animated series is portrayed as being utterly contemptuous and bigoted towards most beings who aren't Kree, to the point of using derogatory terms like filth when referring to them.
  • Helga and her father Bob from Hey Arnold!. They're Jerkasses rather than straight-up villains, but they're quite fond of calling Mr. Simmons a number of names ("throw pillow", "cream puff", "tea cozy") that come across as G-rated homophobic slurs.
  • In the Justice League Unlimited episode "For The Man Who Has Everything", Mongul makes a number of incredibly sexist remarks toward Wonder Woman. In the same show, Despero is a zealot and an incredibly obvious Mind Control Rapist.
  • Kaeloo: Mr. Cat believes that cats are superior to all other species and that women should spend their time doing housework and cooking.
  • Chloe from Miraculous Ladybug states Marinette's uncle should just make sushi "like everyone else". As Adrien points out, sushi is Japanese whereas Marinette's uncle is Chinese.
  • Moral Orel: Just about the entire town of Moralton has blatantly intolerant attitudes towards people of other religions and nationalities, with Clay Puppington and Miss Censordoll being the worst examples.
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has Chancellor Neighsay, who is openly racist against non-ponies, claiming that all of them are dangers to Equestria even though the Princesses are all doing their best to try and open the country up to pony ways of friendship. Even though the Villain Has a Point in some areas like with Changelings and the Mane Six's inexperience and difficulties in teaching, the Changelings have changed for the better and have a different leader.
  • Pinky and the Brain: Mousey Galore in "To Russia With Lab Mice".
    Mousey: You Americans are so fond of being in charge.
  • Eric Cartman from South Park, one of the most popular examples of this trope in recent years, could be considered a politically incorrect Villain Protagonist.
    • Kyle's mom becomes somewhat of a Politically Incorrect Villain towards Canadians in The Movie, despite the fact that her own adopted son is Canadian.
  • General Hardcastle in Superman: The Animated Series made no effort to hide the fact that he hated aliens, Superman included; his reasoning was, he didn't like anyone who didn't fall under his or anyone else's jurisdiction. (In other words, he only liked people he could control.) In his first appearance, he was simply a Jerkass who reluctantly followed Superman's advice when his forces battled the Prometheon, but later, after Superman was Brainwashed and Crazy by Darkseid, Hardcastle started to believe U.S. Army regulations didn't apply to him; falling under Lex Luther's wing, he formed Project Achilles, and crossed the Moral Event Horizon when he tried to execute both Superman and Supergirl with injections of liquefied kryptonite. (As in, with no due process or trial.) While he never faced actual criminal charges for these vigilante actions, he was stripped of his command and his reputation was ruined, and he lived miserable and in isolation for a while before he was murdered by Supergirl's clone Galetea.

  • Transformers: the Decepticons in most incarnations, despise anyone who's organic. How much this applies varies from the various incarnations.

He is never outrageously offensive, but the intent is there when he uses the word "retard" in front of the mentally challenged Ned.
