Villains who are considerably less dark and evil than what is considered normal for the works they appear in having a comedic presence within a story that is otherwise serious; this is the exact opposite of and mutually exclusive from Game Changers and/or Knights of Cerebus. These Villains are usually seen in TV shows as they sometimes become nastier depending on the episodes and/or seasons. In particular, Villains who fall under Mischievous, Incompetents, Dimwits and/or Ensembles are likely to be part of this category.

It is almost impossible for Big Bads and/or Bigger Bads to be Comic Reliefs because if main antagonists are comical then by default a story's other elements will be so as well and this trope fails to apply. The only exceptions would be if stories driven by realistic dramas inexplicably had comical or cartoonish bad guys who were the only recurrent antagonists but irrelevant to the rest of the plot (e.g. SantiagoAku).

Comic Reliefs can and tend to have more threatening moments such as when their true intentions are revealed (i.e. GLaDOS) but their comedy must be prominent and/or remembered.

Pure Evils can NEVER qualify because their acts are serious and fearsome. This is applicable even if they appear funny because their humor is sadistic and/or torturous making them even more threatening (e.g. PennywiseKefka Palazzo) while a Comic Relief's humor is played off to make them seem genuinely less so and can even redeem them (e.g. Lord Qin).

Comedy Villains also cannot qualify unless there are Game Changers and/or Pure Evils in the stories the Villains are in considering if there is true Comic Relief and this means stories are very serious but these Villains lighten up moods while Comedic Villains are in comedy-intended stories.

Examples include Condiment King and Tabitha.
