Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })It's not that Evil Is Cool. Rather, this is more like "Evil is Intellectual". Evil is smart, wicked, sarcastic with a biting sense of humor. Evil is smooth and eloquent, if not outright suave. Evil dresses well, has a polysyllabic lexicon, quotes William Shakespeare, sips fine wine, listens to his favorite opera on his downtime (almost always Don Giovanni), and in general is shown to be cultured if not necessarily civilized. This can apply to any villain, Anti-Villain, or associated character types.
May overlap with Dumb Is Good, but it doesn't have to. The hero of the story can easily be a more rugged intellectual, or he reads/writes poetry, which is almost never perceived as an "evil" form of culture (cf. the Warrior Poet trope). Closely related to the Magnificent Bastard, whose sheer tactical and strategic brilliance often sets him inside the trappings of Wicked Cultured (particularly when he catches you and then explains which strategic genius first invented that trap). Faux Affably Evil is a similar overlap of highbrow manners and vicious actions. Villains who try to be this and fail are Wicked Pretentious.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })When Aristocrats Are Evil, they almost always follow this trope; when enough of them do, you get Deadly Decadent Court. They are likely to practice Brains and Bondage without any trace of Safe, Sane, and Consensual. Likely to be a Villain in a White Suit as well.
A Wicked Cultured villain will naturally be associated with equally cultured music, with their most likely Genre Motif being classical music. Their Mood Motifs tend to be either harpsichords or, for more grandiose variants of this trope, Ominous Pipe Organs. Villains that are particularly passionate about music would probably enjoy Conducting the Carnage.
This trope often carries some implication of Slobs vs. Snobs: people who enjoy pop culture are average joes and probably the protagonists, but those who like "high" culture are a bit weird, "other", and more likely to be antagonists.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Compare the less sinister Villains Out Shopping, Villainous Fashion Sense, and Man of Wealth and Taste. The exact opposite of this is a Gentleman and a Scholar (unless he is Affably Evil). Someone who keeps trying to be this but whose plans end up less clear, simple, and effective may have a Complexity Addiction.
Not to be confused with Sophisticated as Hell, although overlap is possible.

Worm: The villain Imp is very uncouth and a school drop-out, but following her boyfriend's death, she decides to become classically educated, because that's the sort of thing they would have liked. She's shown reading classical literature and incorporating that knowledge into her quips and insults, often surprising her teammates with her greatly expanded vocabulary.

Paptimus Scirocco of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam carries himself this way, being well mannered and courteous to all those around him (even those he despises). He also has a thing for old traditions, such as signing contracts in blood (not that he finds them binding, unlike his superior Jamitov Hymen).

Cody Rhodes used this as his gimmick between 2010 and 2013. It's really more of a "metrosexual" gimmick (perfect teeth and fingernails, etc.), but he's also known for his rather snobbish New England accent (despite being from Texas!) and occasional Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness.

Shuu Tsukiyama from Tokyo Ghoul is the son of a wealthy Ghoul family that is fully entrenched in human society. He enjoys classical music, literature, fine art, fashion, and gourmet meals. In particular, he is a fan of the works of Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin and is influenced to seek the finest experiences in cuisine. Of course, this usually means ripping out and sauteing the eyes of beautiful women or stalking Kaneki in order to find the perfect setting for devouring his Ultimate Meal. Other Ghouls mock him for his obsession with human High Culture, considering it pathetic.

Hivefled's portrayal of the Grand Highblood has him as this trope; he's far more eloquent and less foul-mouthed than Gamzee, capable of carrying out elaborate plans, deeply religious, always very polite when Leaning on the Fourth Wall, and a great painter. His best work was painted in the blood of a lover he murdered, and when speaking to the readers he implies he plans to rape and torture them to death in the same way he did two and a half thousand teenage trolls and attempted to do to his own children.

Adolf K. Weissman from K, wears fancy-looking clothes and waltzes with an inanimate woman wearing a fox mask. The few glimpses we get of him suggest he is quite unhinged and malevolent. Subverted- he's actually the hero and Big Good - when he was acting crazy, it's because he was Possessed. When his memories return, he still has the nice suits, he can still waltz, and of course, the elegant wine moment at the beginning of episode 12 was from before he got body-snatched.

Aizen of Bleach uses very long words, even longer plans and as a scientist is second only to Urahara (which continuously annoys him, and somewhat justified too, as Urahara plays a vital role in his defeat). As well, during his time in Soul Society, he was an instructor in calligraphy.

One scene in Mortality deliberately invoked this trope for Professor Moriarty, with a glass of wine in hand (which he fractures because of his angry grip on it). Overall, the fic paints him as very upper-class and as intellectual as he is meant to be.
Colonel Moran gets his moments as well, particularly at the Tankerville Club.

Lynn Flewelling apparently is in love with them.. "Nightrunners" gives us first Lord Mardus. Gentleman, with high intellect and large interests, which are just as broad as the ones of one main character. Extraordinarily well mannered. Polite even to the prisoner he plans to bloodily sacrifice. Really, if you didn't know he aspires becoming the Avatar of a God of Destruction you'd really like him. Later Ulan (who starts out not really a villain but extremely pragmatic. And sadly if the main characters achieved their goal his clan would suffer, so Later it turns out that not only HE is responsible for the mess of Seregil's life, he also doesn't hesitate supporting rather nasty experiments just to prolong his life. ... and then we met Yakobin. Nice fellow. Has a good taste of tea. And dislikes beatin up his sleves more than necessary - actually he is REALLY civilized and intelligent. Oh, have I mentioned he is an alchemist who creates child-like clones of you to brew some medicine of them and kills them when they won't fit your expectations? Just to make you suffer the whole creation process once again?. The Tamír triad again gives us Nyrin. Court wizard. Soft-spoken. Well mannered. Handsome. Apparently a good lover if you happen to be his mistress. Oh... and aspiring to rule from the shadows. And more or less directly responsible for countless assassinations of female members of the royal bloodline.

Some of the villains on Alias fall into this category. Sark is fond of Chateau Pétrus (one of the world's rarest and most expensive wines). Also, in one episode, the protagonists drug a bad guy's Cristal at a performance of the London Philharmonic (he goes there on the third Saturday of every month).

The Jakoby Twins from Dragon Factory. Rich, perfectly beautiful, intelligent, well-educated and well-dressed, like to surround themselves with beauty - even their secret facility is surrounded by a garden. They are also utterly immoral, use stolen research to create transgenic monsters (and soldiers), and (especially Hecate) kill people for pleasure.

Jeremiah Valeska on Gotham is an example. He was a child prodigy, becoming an engineer before the age of fifteen, and he seems to be knowledgeable in other scientific fields, like physics and chemistry. He’s also a fan of classic movies, and is almost never seen wearing anything but tailored (though eccentrically colored) suits.

Justice League:
The Ultra-Humanite donates money to public television, enjoys classical music, and once reprogrammed a children's toy to tell them the story of the Nutcracker. He's also a white talking gorilla.
Vandal Savage, as well. He's smart, but his level of culture varies from episode to episode; Wonder Woman certainly feels he's exactly as barbaric as the caveman he ultimately is. "Hereafter" confirms it when Superman looks over his library. "Self-help books? You don't seem like the type."

Solf J. Kimblee of Fullmetal Alchemist has got this down pat. Immaculate white suit? Check. Nice, calming voice? Check. An interest in the alchemical arts, as well as a seeming passion for music? Check. Oh, and he's a psychopath who has made it his life's work to blow up anything and everything for the heck of it. And he can turn people into living bombs.

In the Gentleman Bastard series, Capa Barsavi of Camorr was once a professor of literature and rhetoric. One of his former students, Jaffrim Rodanov, is a pirate captain who loves to discuss classical theatre when he can find someone who shares his interest. Requin, owner of the Sinspire, has a near-obsessive interest in Talathri Baroque art (to the point where he can tell genuine specimens from replicas at a glance). Maxilan Stragos delights in works of artifice and alchemy, and has a whole floor of his palace dedicated to them. Depending on where you draw the "wicked"-line, Locke, Jean and Sabetha can just as easily make the cut too.

Dr. Hannibal Lecter, as he appears in Hannibal, is as fitting an example as his literary and film counterparts, if not more so because the series is set before his discovery and incarceration by the FBI. He enjoys the finest wines and coffees (going so far as to create a custom beer reserve that's brewed in Cabernet Merlot barrels to impart a wine flavour), enjoys the local opera, has gorgeous artworks on display in his home and office and wears very expensive and stylish suits. It all stems from Hannibal's A God Am I and his innate need to demonstrate his superiority over others.

Harry Potter:
Lucius Malfoy's well dressed and well-spoken, and he's also implied to be heavily involved in wizarding cultural affairs (on the board of Hogwarts, donates to St. Mungo's). And damn, is his pimp cane◊ awesome or what?
Lord Voldemort, especially in his younger years. His teachers saw him as an eloquent, brilliant, and polite student. In truth, he used his refined manners to manipulate people (his behaviour towards Hepzibah Smith is a wonderful example). And when he wanted to duel with Harry in The Goblet of Fire… He insisted that two opponents should bow before each other.

The Dresden Files' Nicodemus, the host and compatriot of a fallen angel, definitely qualifies. He's the scariest and evilest creature in a series full of scary, evil creatures who far outstrip him in raw power, but he does it with impeccable taste.
Gentleman Marcone comes off as this, but it will likely never be confirmed because he's, well, Marcone.

Discworld:
Havelock Vetinari of Discworld, though he's more of a ruthless pragmatist than evil. He's extremely intelligent and cultured, but also an ascetic with no vices. In particular, his hobby of reading the equivalent of classical music, because actual instruments are just too unrefined. Vetinari was also a trained Assassin, which, on the Discworld, is a gentleman's calling.
Odd variation in The Truth: Mr Tulip (an expy of Mr. Vandemar, above) has a deep interest in art, and is able to discuss it at length. Apart from that, he's Dumb Muscle who'll use anything as a drug, and has a vocabulary reliant on the word "——ing". His partner Mr Pin is the smart one, but doesn't have the interest in culture.
The Dragon King of Arms in Feet of Clay. A vampire over five hundred years old, he was in charge of Ankh-Morpork's heraldry. As Vimes points out, from a vampire's point of view this is much like following the pedigree of one's pets.
Also Lord Hong from Interesting Times, who not only lives in a Deadly Decadent Court, but has mastered all the Orientalist arts of his culture. Nobody concentrates!

Elementary's version of Moriarty, like most of them, definitely fits this trope. She first appears on the screen impeccably restoring artwork (and is implied to have personally created duplicates of well-known paintings so convincing that they fooled the museum curators), is never dressed in anything less than the most impeccable clothing, and manages to put on a Fake American accent, amongst many other things, convincing enough to fool Holmes (and everyone else in the show).

Doc Scratch of Homestuck is perpetually dressed in a white tuxedo, lives in an art deco apartment in a mansion, speaks with perfect grammar and near-unflappable politeness, enjoys playing pranks and board games with children, and is an excellent host to his guests. He just so happens to also be The Dragon to an Eldritch Abomination, with the stated objective of bringing about the end of his universe so that his master may feed on reality's corpse. He also kicked off the "Make her pay" subplot, which resulted in one person confined to a wheelchair, one dead, one blind, and one losing an arm and eye as well as being despised by everyone she ever liked.

In Cracker, Albie Kinsella (Robert Carlyle) resents how he thinks people view him as an uncultured and uneducated thug. He makes a point of this when he kills his second victim, a professor, who had dismissed him as such in public, when he recognises the music the professor was playing as Mozart and asked him if he was surprised he knew that (which he was). He both hates that people think of him as scum (in his mind) and blames them when he in turn acts like murdering scum. Unfortunately, his first murder was a hotheaded attack on a shopkeeper over being ripped off by 4 pence. In other words, he's a Deconstruction of the Trope, a working-class killer who both shows signs of being cultured yet is at the same time is becoming every bad thing he thinks society views him as being.

Many, many James Bond villains have taste and class, often used to contrast against the somewhat less (though still quite) cultured secret agent:
Dr. No spent one million dollars on an underground fish tank, and stole Goya's portrait of Wellington.
Auric Goldfinger likes his things golden. Even his women. And his servants.
Ernst Stavro Blofeld (From Russia with Love, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Diamonds Are Forever, Spectre) likes living with class and style. One of his demands in the third is to be given the title of Comte de Bleuchamps, for no reason other than the prestige.
Karl Stromberg from The Spy Who Loved Me and Hugo Drax from Moonraker don't skimp on the decor, as we can see from the latter's fancy villa◊. Imported, brick by brick, from France to California (he bought the Eiffel Tower too, but was refused an export permit). The former is often seen sitting around his dining table in his underwater mansion, eating expensively and listening to Bach.
Kamal Khan (Octopussy) as the Meaningful Name implies, is a Prince and owns a Monsoon Palace.
The Living Daylights: General Koskov enjoys classical music and luxuries like high-end caviar and champagne. The Dragon (Necros) though, likes cheesy pop music, so much for him.
Francisco Scaramanga, The Man with the Golden Gun. He was rich, played by Christopher Lee (see Count Dooku) which already makes him suave and dangerous, and he even had an eco-friendly Supervillain Lair... located in the Phang Nga Bay.
The higher-ups of Quantum love their Tosca.

In Night Watch (Series), Zavulon (or Zabulon) always appears wearing a suit and rarely shows anger. However, he is a scheming bastard who would be considered an outright villain if not for this world's Grey-and-Gray Morality. His Dusk appearance, however, is that of a demon (the author even felt the need to mention his spiked penis). The Movie version shows him more as an anarchist wearing black leather and a bandana.

The Gunstar version of the Magnus in Shards of the Exalted Dream, as a sort of motonic physics Expy of Hannibal Lecter, revels in this trope. When people come in to ask him questions about Primordial metaphysics (which, when you're engaged in reshaping one into a war engine, is sort of a big deal), he tends to provide less unpleasant unforeseen consequences when advising people who discuss philosophy with him or sing him an aria from the latest opera.

N'Jadaka/Killmonger in Black Panther, despite a major part of his character being his general disrespect for Wakanda (or most anyone else), reveals a detailed knowledge of old African artifacts as what might be a side effect of his search for loose Vibranium. Of course, he lacks as much cultural respect for those as he does anything else, only concerned with how they might benefit him and stealing one that wasn't from Wakanda simply because "it looked cool."

Lord Cedric from W.I.T.C.H. has two passions: ancient books and deception. Fittingly, his home on Earth doubles as a bookshop with a preference for ancient books and he has many contacts among booksellers, and has deceived people from the very first story until his death, with one victim falling in his deception in spite of being forewarned to not trust him (Cedric even described exactly what the poor victim was thinking).

Julian from Sire was kind enough to pen a rather lovely note explaining that he had stolen research papers from the main character's suitcase (and they were such a delightful read!), though he would have felt cruel taking the bag. Hoping this letter finds you well.

Stargate:
System Lord Ba'al from Stargate SG-1. While he starts out as a fairly typical Goa'uld System Lord, he was unusually subdued, smooth, and well-spoken. Part of his ascendancy to Magnificent Bastardry was that the reveal that he wasn't just a Large Ham or even a Cold Ham; he could also churn out charm by the bucket and developed an abiding interest in Earth, both through encounters with SG-1 and a period of exile on Earth, becoming almost an expert on human high culture. In one of the DVD movies, he forgoes the "Kneel Before Zod" speech and actually invites himself to lunch with the President in the Rose Garden at the White House! What a guy! (His fellow Goa'uld, by contrast, favour the Nuke 'em from orbit approach and consequently think he's insane.)
Stargate Atlantis: In "Condemned", the team goes to a planet whose leaders struck a deal with the Wraith. The Wraith who regularly visits the planet enjoys fine cuisine and wines, despite the fact that they provide no nourishment for him. He considers himself a more enlightened and civilized Wraith than his brethren for allowing the planet to live in peace (instead of being constantly submitted to genocidal harvests) in exchange for a small but steady food supply. He admits he does enjoy his dinners with the magistrate, to whom he is courteous and polite, but since he's still a life-sucking monster this is capped off with things like the Wraith pointing out that the previous cook was tastier than his meals, and he threatens to annihilate the whole planet unless they give him more people to feed on so he can "provide" for his Wraith friends.

Pathfinder:
In the Curse of the Crimson Throne adventure path, Laori Vaus is an art lover; if asked if she plans to kill the character the party is trying to find, she says no, he's an artist, she just wants to ask about his inspiration admittedly because it ties into an attempt to resurrect an evil dragon, but she also seems to like art in and of itself. She's also an Affably Lawful Evil follower of the god of torture and pain, and is noted for talking in an extremely chipper and upbeat way about how it feels to flay a man alive.
This is also the hat of the syrinx, artsy and philosophical owl people who want to enslave all of the other humanoid races for their own good.
Ragadahn the Water Lord is a tyrannical, ruthless and murderous beast, and Chaotic Evil to the core, but he's also deeply learned and an accomplished scholar, and one of the greatest sages among the dragons and the fey.

Marvel Cinematic Universe:
Justin Hammer in Iron Man 2 is clearly trying to do this to impress Ivan Vanko. Like with everything else, he just winds up looking like a doofus.
Loki in The Avengers shows great knowledge of Midgardian history, noting that humans love to follow strong leaders. In Thor: The Dark World he's shown to be an avid reader. His mother Frigga sends him books to his prison cell to appease him.
N'Jadaka/Killmonger in Black Panther, despite a major part of his character being his general disrespect for Wakanda (or most anyone else), reveals a detailed knowledge of old African artifacts as what might be a side effect of his search for loose Vibranium.

Magneto always enjoys a good game of chess with Xavier or listening to classical music.
Sebastian Shaw in the opening of X-Men: First Class. He assures a terrified boy (who would grow up to be Magneto) that he doesn't share the ridiculous Nazi prejudice against Jews. For some reason, the boy doesn't seem to be reassured. Later in the scene, the camera shifts, and we see that Shaw's office includes a torture chamber...

Phantom Limb from The Venture Bros. is a definite example, once called out for having sold out his villainous principles for high culture accoutrements such as dealing in stolen art instead of 'the old stuff'. (In the same episode, he laments how many of his clients want to own the Mona Lisa for no other reason than it's a famous painting, and not because they appreciate it as art.)

Hans Gruber in Die Hard. Classical education, dontcha know. He's also dressed very well and chats cleverly about high fashion. Having Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" as a motif, the film composer Michael Kamen called him a lineal descendant of the bad guys in A Clockwork Orange. Funnily enough, the quote he delivers to demonstrate his classical education is inaccurate.

The Flash's Rogues Gallery:
The Top is an incredible genius who is, among other things, a wine connoisseur. This has made him a pariah among the other, more blue-collar Rogues.
The Fiddler, as well, was a classically trained violinist and musical virtuoso who sometimes claimed he was Doing It for the Art. This was lampshaded once when Deadshot asked him why, if he was classically trained and had a genuine Strad violin, why he called himself the Fiddler, like "...an inbred hick".
Weather Wizard also fancies himself something of an intellectual.

V for Vendetta: V is a Villain Protagonist with a good cause, and he applies this trope to himself, quoting the line, "Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste," from the Rolling Stones's "Sympathy for the Devil." He plays the piano, writes his own songs, grows roses, has an enormous vocabulary (most of it starting with "V")... He has a reason - his art collection is 'rescued' from the Culture Police, and his over-eloquent theatrics are meant to be a contrast to the bland and menacing fascist government.
In the novelization of the movie, Creedy has shades of this.

Mad artist Sander Cohen of BioShock covers dead bodies (and sometimes living Splicers) in plaster and poses them as statues, chains poor Fitzpatrick to a piano rigged with dynamite and makes him play until he blows up, sends you on a quest to kill his fellow artists and take pictures of their corpses to add to his latest masterpiece, and in one spontaneous fit of rage sics multiple waves of Splicers on you to Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers". His artistic success amounts largely to riding the wave of Ryan's current moods, but that is a surprisingly good number he has Fitzpatrick playing (until Fitzpatrick misses too many notes).
Andrew Ryan too, with his pursuit of objectivist philosophy as an end unto itself, and his beliefs that all artists should be free to express their dreams without fear of censorship. Even his passion for Art Deco architecture is obvious in the appearance of Rapture, despite being built thirty years after Art Deco was all the rage.

Played with in Super Robot Wars Original Generation 2. Archibald Grims, Smug Snake and card-carrying terrorist without a cause, invites his most cultured subordinate for a spot of tea. He takes this time to explain that he doesn't actually like tea, but he likes to drink red tea because it kind of looks like blood. Meanwhile, his subordinate notices that he's using a teabag, so he can't even get the "cultured" part right.

The Diogenes Club series:
In Swellhead there's a heavy subversion; the villain is massively intelligent and knows everything, but a) his cultural leanings are decidedly cheesy (he likes Burt Bacharach, and has muzak versions of MOR songs playing in his Elaborate Underground Base) and b) he is actually defeated by his lack of knowledge of the younger generation's pop culture. Not "as a consequence of"; By. After failing to name the singer who had a hit with "I Should Be So Lucky", his head explodes. Or, if you prefer, goes pop.
Similarly, Derek Leech, the series's Greater-Scope Villain, one of the world's foremost diabolical masterminds, is a prophet of tacky consumer culture and has the kind of mind that thinks it's pretty neat for his sinister black luxury car to have a horn that plays the theme from Jaws.

Treize Kushrenada of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing was the poster child of this trope during his time as a villain. His cultured elements are covered in the Cultured Badass section, while his wicked elements constitute his leading the Specials (essentially the State Security of Wing) in subjugating the colonies and parts of the Earth, his indirectly assassinating the UESA leadership when they were on the verge of a peace settlement and then leading OZ in conquering the Earthsphere in the name of their Romefellar masters. Naturally he has a Heel–Face Turn later on, when he realizes that his actions only made the world turn for the worst, but for a time Treize was a particularly ruthless Gundam villain.

Captain Hook of Peter Pan is generally portrayed as cultured, and often something of an Anti-Villain. Peter, by contrast, is a feral tyrant, ruling by whim but setting strict rules for the Lost Boys. (In some adaptations this is taken farther: Peter is incapable of learning or memory and murders the Lost Boys if they don't follow his rules.)

Schindler's List: During the liquidation of the Krakow ghetto, an SS officer is happily playing on a piano amidst all the executions occurring around him. It was Bach, despite what the two obviously less-than-cultured soldiers at the door said (Prelude to the 2nd English Suite). The music fit right in, its rapid-fire percussive staccato nature lining up with the gunfire and muzzle flashes peppering the night.

Grand Admiral Thrawn. The guy collects art. Then he studies it, learns the loopholes in the creators' culture, uses them to steer them into the exact position he wants them, and systematically beats them until they surrender. The one time he was unable to gain insight through a culture's art, he was forced to utterly destroy them, although he still looks at their art and believes that he's finally starting to understand (this species, tellingly, was the Khaleesh - the most well-known of which is General Grievous). He's even able to acknowledge the artistry in his own assassination. Thrawn's Affably Imperial and in some depictions, he's not strictly a bad guy, and always pragmatic.

Light Yagami of Death Note can sometimes come across this way, as a sharply-dressed, well-educated Person of Mass Destruction, with a tongue so silver it convinced a god of death to kill herself and evil so faux-affable it sucked good folks into his madness. Another character even comments that Light looks and acts "like he's been groomed for success his whole life," but this mature and intellectual exterior actually masks a childish genius who wants to watch heads roll and doesn't know what it means to be wrong.
Teru Mikami, who is extremely similar to Light, not just in his meticulous appearance but also mind-set. Mikami graduated from a prestigious university, became a successful prosecutor and his clothes are never seen in any disarray. Unfortunately, he suffers from the same issues as Light.

World Tree RPG: Nendrai, large reptilian monsters greatly feared by primes, thoroughly enjoy the benefits of civilization and surround themselves with the best creature comforts that they can. Their floors are covered by fine rugs, their libraries hold all the classics, and their cellars are stocked with rare vintages. They're personable and educated as well, and can be engaged in perfectly pleasant conversation, as long as the other party can convince the Nendrai that it wants a chat more than it wants lunch or a new slave.

Most Forsaken in The Wheel of Time fit this trope perfectly. Not surprising, given that they are from a much more civilized time where they were among the highest-ranked scholars and wizards in the world. Ishamael/Moridin is probably the most obvious; a handsome, well-dressed man who lives in his own elegant palace in the middle of the Blight and is fond of chatting metaphysics with his Archenemy in-between attempts to kill each other, all in spite of being a nihilistic Omnicidal Maniac. Asmodean (a passionate musician who was already a renowned performer as a child) and Graendal (a former psychologist who actually has fairly sophisticated tastes, as much as she'd like you to think she's a vapid hedonist) are up there too.

Rice even explores this through Lestat's voice in The Vampire Lestat, as he muses that it's not surprising Louis thought he was lying about his Blue Blood: Louis was a member of the American nouveau riche who put on what they imagined were aristocratic airs, while Lestat came from "a long line of Barons who threw chicken bones over their shoulders" and slept with their hunting dogs.
Rice has lots of fun with this. For all his sophistication, Lestat learned English from reading cheesy, low-brow pulp detective dime novels, and loves slang because of it. He describes his own way of speaking as Sam Spade-ish.

Khan from Star Trek: The Original Series, both in "Space Seed" and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Eloquent in speech (Ricardo Montalbán at his finest), well mannered and gracious even when those around him act otherwise, and has absolutely no qualms throwing out a classical line or proverb when the situation calls for it. Even in his dying moments, he lasted just long enough to quote Ahab's last words toward the futilely retreating Enterprise.

In Batman Returns, The Penguin character was averted from this: he's portrayed as the grotesquely deformed scion of a wealthy family who dumped him in the river and left him for dead when he was still a baby. Although obviously intelligent and certainly no stranger to fine clothes, this version of the Penguin is quite vulgar, with thuggish manners and distasteful sexual appetites. The character is also portrayed in this manner in the Arkham City video game. He clearly thinks he's Wicked Cultured though.

Marquise Isabelle de Merteuil from Les Liaisons dangereuses. She's obviously the most cultured, clever, and deepest character of the book (Valmont also counts, but he's her villain sidekick). Her choice to pursue a career in evilness was heavily influenced by the philosophers she read. She would probably protect intellectuals and free speech if she wasn't too occupied ruining other persons' lives.

Magneto in Ultimate X-Men. Despite his disdain for humanity, he has his minions steal all of the greatest works of art that they can before he begins a scheme intended to wipe out the entire human race, reasoning that humanity's only worthwhile creations (to paraphrase his terminology) deserve better than to be destroyed with their makers.

Odd variation in The Truth: Mr Tulip (an expy of Mr. Vandemar, above) has a deep interest in art, and is able to discuss it at length. Apart from that, he's Dumb Muscle who'll use anything as a drug, and has a vocabulary reliant on the word "——ing". His partner Mr Pin is the smart one, but doesn't have the interest in culture.

Victoria has a cultured Nazi officer who likes discussing philosophy and history.

Karl Stromberg from The Spy Who Loved Me and Hugo Drax from Moonraker don't skimp on the decor, as we can see from the latter's fancy villa◊. Imported, brick by brick, from France to California (he bought the Eiffel Tower too, but was refused an export permit). The former is often seen sitting around his dining table in his underwater mansion, eating expensively and listening to Bach.

Most of the massively rich, upper-class Lannisters from Game of Thrones fall somewhere between this and Faux Affably Evil. This being a world with a Deadly Decadent Court, it's not surprising.
Jaime Lannister implicitly takes pride in his beautiful golden armor being without a single dent. He also pushed a child out of a tower.
We first meet the patriarch Tywin Lannister admonishing his son Jamie for his misinterpretation of the philosophical concepts of family honour... as he is skinning a stag. Tywin is also very well-read, particularly when it comes to history.
Tyrion Lannister's status as a bad guy is uncertain at best, but he's clearly well-practiced in the art of lying, cheating, and bribing his way out of a tight spot. He is also able to design a special saddle for the crippled Bran Stark, has excellent knowledge of the law, and is a voracious reader. As of the second season, he's also a shrewd tactician in both politics and warfare.
As could be expected of a rich young woman from a noble house, Cersei Lannister received an excellent education. She is able to match wits with Ned Stark during a subtext-laden conversation about Ned's education as opposed to his brother's, and understands enough about the military realities of the North to lecture her son Joffrey on the impossibility of occupying the North directly. She's also plotting to kill the King.
Averted with Joffrey, however. He's just Ax-Crazy and clearly has no interest in culture.

Pirates of the Caribbean:
Cutler Beckett, in contrast to the bombastic Hector Barbossa and monstrous Davy Jones, presents himself as a refined gentleman of a villain, sipping tea aboard his ship before going into battle.
In the first movie, Barbossa himself affects this in contrast to his crew when he asks Elizabeth not to use long words, but then responds to her demand that they leave with "I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request. Means 'no'." As well, in the fourth movie, Barbossa quotes William Ernest Henley's Invictus when describing his cutting off his leg to escape from Blackbeard's trap.
Davy Jones also happens to be a passionate musician, venting his centuries of anger and bitterness and lamenting the betrayal of his "lost" love by playing his steam-blowing pipe organ at regular intervals.
Jack Sparrow has also proven to be relatively cultured on occasion (though his wickedness varies). For example, during his encounter with Koehlner and Twigg in the Fort Charles prison, Jack makes a reference to Dante's Divine Comedy when commenting on the two pirates' "fortunes". Also, he's said to have learned his swordsmanship from an Italian master, and so knows the classical nuances of fencing (thus his commentary to Will Turner during their duel).

In Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar, carry themselves with the same sophistication and grace of their good counterparts the Craftworld Eldar, but they're also soul-sucking monsters who consider torture, rape, and violence to be fun pastimes.
A number of fallen Primarchs were remarkably well-educated - Horus, Magnus, Fulgrim, and even Perturabo qualified in different ways, with Fulgrim and Horus as patrons of the arts, Perturabo as an architect and classical scholar, and Magnus as a remarkably erudite Warp-scholar. Of all four, Horus was the only one whose corruption came about without involving it - Magnus delved too deep into the Warp and succumbed to Pride, ultimately being deceived and stranded on the tender mercies of Tzeentch; Fulgrim's art was corrupted into a lust for sensation, leading to the Emperor's Children devolving from artists and musicians into drug-addicts and hedonists; and Perturabo's resentment at being continually thwarted in his desire to build something out of marble and graceful curves rather than stone and razorwire led him to loathe most of his brethren and ultimately fall to Chaos.

The Spy from Team Fortress 2 initially appears this way, especially in his Meet the Spy video. It kind of falls apart in-game, though, when he winds up shouting insults like a 12-year-old and laughing until he snorts.
Heavy, meanwhile, definitely counts. He has a Ph.D. in Russian lit. and enjoys himself a nice peach bellini. This, in-between screaming at the top of his lungs, chewing through people with a giant minigun, and telling stories about choking an Engineer with his own wrench as if it were some kind of bawdy anecdote.
Even more so in the Russian translation.
Between bouts of administering "accidental" not-medicine and blowing up hearts For Science!, Medic's a violinist.

Doctor Who:
Cassandra is something like a rare treasure collector, uses her wealth for all sorts of entertainment, has enough technological knowledge like to keep up with the Doctor and considering she discovers the cat nun's secret minutes after stealing Rose's body, her detective skills may be even better than Rose.
The Master tends to alternate between this and being a crazed loon depending on the state of his health. The Roger Delgado incarnation was easily the most like this: dressing in nice suits, smoking cigars, regarding the Doctor as his intellectual equal and playing with him like a chess opponent, reading The War of the Worlds, fencing with the Doctor rather than fighting in a less sophisticated way, and even using his suave and charm to woo the affections of an ambitious woman in the Mycenaean era. Then he lost most of this in his Peter Pratt incarnation due to his decaying body and desperate situation, and he hasn't been quite the same since. However, the Anthony Ainley, John Simm, and Michelle Gomez incarnations have still shown signs of being sophisticated and cultured whenever they're not being totally over-the-top. Even Eric Roberts' Master showed signs of sophistication when he DREZZZED FOR THE OCCASION.
Solon in "The Brain of Morbius" is shown to be interested in sculpture and good wine. His surgical tools are all beautiful, handmade tools, and he admires the Doctor's face with them. In fact, it's partially responsible for his downfall — if he hadn't been as obsessed with performing head theft in a beautiful way, the Doctor's headless corpse would have been lying in a ditch before the three-quarter mark of Episode 1.
Harrison Chase in "The Seeds of Doom" loves stylish fashion, horticulture, roses, writing horrible neoclassical 'music' and playing it to people before he shoots them (referencing experimental composer Harrison Birtwistle, whom he is named after as a Take That!), and helping plants pursue bloody revolution against the entire animal kingdom by awakening a psychic alien cabbage.

Flashman villain John Charity Spring was on the Oxford don career path before getting booted out and seeking an alternate career in the slave trade. Spring is a brilliant classical scholar who constantly throws Gratuitous Latin tags into his conversation, but he's also a psychopath with a Hair-Trigger Temper. While there isn't a Good Is Dumb contrast (since Flashman is a Villain Protagonist), there is a contrast in intellect, since Flashman is Book Dumb and while he's an Omniglot when it comes to learning to speak living languages, he could never pick up Ancient Greek and Latin.

M. Valerius Magnus in The Arts of Dark and Light. Although he is part of the "good guy" Valerian faction, Magnus gives a fair bit of an impression of this, being a cynical and worldly politician and a rather harsh master to his household, as well as an earnest devotee of philosophy and culture. He becomes a straight example after he defects to the bad guys.

In Swellhead there's a heavy subversion; the villain is massively intelligent and knows everything, but a) his cultural leanings are decidedly cheesy (he likes Burt Bacharach, and has muzak versions of MOR songs playing in his Elaborate Underground Base) and b) he is actually defeated by his lack of knowledge of the younger generation's pop culture. Not "as a consequence of"; By. After failing to name the singer who had a hit with "I Should Be So Lucky", his head explodes. Or, if you prefer, goes pop.

All things considered, Beast Wars Megatron certainly fits the bill. From his aristocratic accent to his quoting Earth literature, one doesn't doubt that if it had been possible for him to sip a nice chilled glass of red, BW Megatron would have been. Perhaps while doing the Slouch of Villainy in his command-chair or soaking in his energon hot tub.
The fact that he bathes with a rubber ducky manages to reduce his cultured aura not one bit, impressively.
Also he strokes his T-rex head arm while in his robot form, the same way James Bond villain Blofeld caresses his pet cat.
The Megatron in Transformers Animated was obviously inspired by his predecessor. He drinks oil out of a barrel crushed into the shape of a chalice. It also comes up that he's the Cybertronian equivalent of a vintner, brewing his own blends of oil in his off-hours.
Though he pulls a Heel–Face Turn in the very first episode, Dinobot never the less fits the bill as he was clearly like this before his defection and even as a Maximal he swerves between Token Evil Teammate and Reformed, but Not Tamed, being a Cultured Warrior whose highly educated and quotes poetry and philosophy. With his Last Words after his Heroic Sacrifice he even quotes William Shakespeare:

Sigfried in Get Smart fits this very well (whereas the original in the TV show was Affably Evil). He is essentially The Mean Brit as a Bond villain and is paradoxically, calm and cultured while being Chaotic Evil. This is particularly apparent at the end when he is in his car listening to and conducting the same music being played by an orchestra in which he has placed a bomb that will kill the president and everyone else inside.

Oz has Nino Schibetta, imprisoned Mafia Don and the first leader of the Italian gang. He is one of the most, if not the most powerful inmate in all of Oz, and is not only Affably Evil but Wicked Cultured personified. He is fluent in Italian (though it may be because he's implied to be an Italian immigrant), dresses fairly sharp, knows his wine and gourmet cuisine, and is hinted to be a fan of classical music. He is also a fan of inflicting Cruel and Unusual Death on his enemies.

In Tales of MU, Embries and The Man both qualify. The former has a gloriously-decorated office and snazzy attire, a silver tongue, and a tea set of which he is very fond. He is also an ancient dragon with a taste for human flesh. The Man is a demon who devours the hearts of virgins monthly to sustain himself and impregnated and abandoned the main character's mother twice. He wears a snazzy pinstriped suit and waxes philosophic (sometimes in High Draconic) when speaking with his daughter, however, and like Embries is a master of seduction.

Stargate Atlantis: In "Condemned", the team goes to a planet whose leaders struck a deal with the Wraith. The Wraith who regularly visits the planet enjoys fine cuisine and wines, despite the fact that they provide no nourishment for him. He considers himself a more enlightened and civilized Wraith than his brethren for allowing the planet to live in peace (instead of being constantly submitted to genocidal harvests) in exchange for a small but steady food supply. He admits he does enjoy his dinners with the magistrate, to whom he is courteous and polite, but since he's still a life-sucking monster this is capped off with things like the Wraith pointing out that the previous cook was tastier than his meals, and he threatens to annihilate the whole planet unless they give him more people to feed on so he can "provide" for his Wraith friends.

While the Evronian from Paperinik New Adventures are introduced as a race of ruthless and brutal Emotion Eater aliens, Branch Leader Gorthan is one: unlike others, he has developed emotions (though not at the extent of humans) and a deep fascination with Earth culture. He's introduced quoting Shakespeare to his confused underlings, in his second appearance he quotes the Little Prince as he's about to crash on Earth and, after revealing that his time is limited, asks for a good book. In the reboot he's a connoisseur of Evronian culture, even going as far as losing himself in a simulation machine which makes him the hero of an ancient Evronian saga. That being said, he's still an evil conqueror from an alien planet.

Creed from Black Cat is definitely shown to be one of the more "cultured" characters in the series. He appears to be the only character in the series that bothers taking a bath (which is filled with rose petals, no less), dresses in sleek, black leather, drinks A Glass of Chianti (with a rose in it), speaks in a much more formal manner, plays the organ well, is skilled with large scale oil painting, carving gold statues, etc.

M'Quve from Mobile Suit Gundam is a ruthless Smug Snake under the orders of Princess Kycilia Zabi, whom he's fiercely devoted to. He's also an extremely cultured, polite, soft-spoken man who adores art and souvenirs. His last thoughts as he died in battle were of both his Princess and an old porcelain vase that he wanted to offer to her as a gift.
Backstory claims the same about Gihren Zabi, who apparently enjoys dancing, opera, horticulture, and various other types of arts and sciences. For a guy who fancied himself as Hitler's reincarnation, Gihren was as cultured as he was (supposedly) intellectual.
Paptimus Scirocco of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam carries himself this way, being well mannered and courteous to all those around him (even those he despises). He also has a thing for old traditions, such as signing contracts in blood (not that he finds them binding, unlike his superior Jamitov Hymen).
Mashemyre Cello of Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ thinks of himself as this but in reality, he's a bumbling idiot with a thing for roses and an obsession with Haman Karn.
Treize Kushrenada of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing was the poster child of this trope during his time as a villain. His cultured elements are covered in the Cultured Badass section, while his wicked elements constitute his leading the Specials (essentially the State Security of Wing) in subjugating the colonies and parts of the Earth, his indirectly assassinating the UESA leadership when they were on the verge of a peace settlement and then leading OZ in conquering the Earthsphere in the name of their Romefellar masters. Naturally he has a Heel–Face Turn later on, when he realizes that his actions only made the world turn for the worst, but for a time Treize was a particularly ruthless Gundam villain.

Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, in addition to being a mathematician, chess player, and former boxer, is portrayed as a fan of opera, listening to a phonograph of Schubert whilst torturing Holmes with a meat hooknote The song in question was Die Forelle (The Trout), which Moriarty used for an elaborate analogy of the rivalry between him and Holmes (i.e. he thinks of himself as the fisherman and Holmes the trout). Thus the meat hook.. His Dragon, Moran, also qualifies, as he expresses disappointment when one of Moriarty's schemes gets in the way of his plans to see a performance of Don Giovanni.

Emperor Zinyak of Saints Row IV has an affinity for wine, Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and opera, and even DJs the Steelport simulation's classical music radio station, where he can be heard both reading the opening chapter of Pride and Prejudice and threatening his underlings with summary execution for calling Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor "the Dracula music".
The Boss him/herself is a ruthless gang leader who is also a big fan of Jane Austen, though this seems to be the only bit of culture in their life as they don't know one bit about anything listed above. Zinyak is an Austen fan as well, so much so that he used time travel to abduct her for his personal collection.

Buffyverse:
Subverted with Spike, a punkish Mockney yob with a strong resemblance to who inspired Billy Idol. Then double-subverted when we meet him pre-vampire...as a "bloody awful" would-be poet of implicitly upper-middle-class origin.
Played straight with most of the Wolfram and Hart villains. They're normally a bunch of attractive, human (although occasionally soulless) lawyers who play golf, (sometimes with the devil) go to fancy parties (and get butchered) and drink wine. They're usually played as a contrast with the rougher, lower-class heroes. In fact, when Lindsey leaves W&H, he immediately goes back to his roots in a poor, Southern family.
Angelus considers himself an artist and declares destroying people physically and mentally to be artwork. He also has a liking for ballet, and Angel freely admits in "Waiting in the Wings" that when he first saw the ballet Giselle in 1890, it moved him to tears.

Chairface Chippendale, nemesis of The Tick, dresses sharply, eats fine food, and is prone to sophisticated dialogue, despite having a chair for a head.

Bester in Babylon 5 seems to fit this too. In one appearance, he quotes A Christmas Carol to a guard who doesn't catch the reference, and in another he references "The Cask of Amontillado". This may intersect with Small Reference Pools, however, as both are generally read in High Schools.
In the canon Psi Corps Trilogy novels, Bester is shown to be fairly culturally sophisticated, and philosophically thoughtful in his musings.

Done in a subtle way with John Morrison when he was a heel: ostensibly a Hollywood "cool dude" with shades and long hair, but occasionally known to speak of his "palace of wisdom" (an image from the poetry of William Blake). Morrison's gimmick/character is a No Celebrities Were Harmed Expy of Jim Morrison, who used that line himself.

The Major from Hellsing is a textbook example: he dresses immaculately, always ready for A Glass of Chianti, is well-read, refined, eloquent, frighteningly intelligent, but... He's insane and has "EVIL" written on him in two-foot letters. In blood.

Konotegashiwa of Tales of the Undiscovered Swords is a samurai-tongue-speaking waka poetry enthusiast who has beautiful penmanship and can doll himself up in Kimono Fanservice when need too, but is also a self-righteous Straw Vegetarian, a bully and a Manipulative Bastard.

Monkey from Dexter's Laboratory faced a villain (a super-smart ape) who was very cultured. He did a Heel–Face Turn when Monkey convinced him to embrace his primate instincts.

Triple H, during his early years in WWE. He'll still lapse into it a bit on occasion, such as when he recently quoted H. P. Lovecraft.

Shogo Makishima, the sociopathic villain from Psycho-Pass, is seen reading Shakespeare and Nineteen Eighty Four in his spare time; and he's very knowledgeable in philosophy, music, and literature.
In The Movie, Desmond Rutaganda is a ruthless mercenary who will do anything, no matter how destructive, for money. He also discusses postcolonial philosophy with a captive Togami.

In Vampire: The Requiem, most Invictus vampires are presented this way, as are the Ordo Dracul and Clan Mekhet; just how evil they are depends on the individual and one's point of view. In the previous edition, Clans Ventrue and Toreador were even more cultured, and the classier Lasombra and Tzmisice really reveled in the Wicked Cultured part.

Eddie Temple in Layer Cake, who is an opera lover and has a vast library in his estate; his counterpart in the novel attends opera but doesn't seem to actually like it much, although he has an unusual interest in Buddhism due to a Granola Girl second wife.

In an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, several characters are trapped in a malfunctioning holodeck, surrounded by holographic gangsters from Picard's noir holonovel. The man in charge of gangsters (a Lawyer-Friendly Cameo Kasper Gutman) is well-dressed and well-spoken. Crusher gets sick of it and asks why he insists on treating them well before shooting them. He replies that without civility, we may as well be animals.
Also, the self-aware Moriarty holodeck program. Seriously, the holodeck can create some really cultured foes.
