I no longer go by the name of Kuroto Dan. I'm now... NEW Kuroto Dan!!!
~ Kuroto Dan

Villains more lighthearted and less dark or evil than what is considered normal for the works in which they appear having a comedic presence within an otherwise serious story; they are mutually exclusive from and the exact opposites of Game Changers. These villains are usually seen in TV shows as they sometimes become more nasty, depending on the episode. In particular, if a villain falls under Mischievous, Incompetents, Dimwits or Ensembles they are likely to be part of this.

It is almost impossible for Big Bads or Bigger Bads to be Comic Reliefs because if a main antagonist is comical then by default most of the other story elements will be as well and this trope cannot apply. The only exception would be if a story driven primarily by realism or dramas inexplicably had a comical or Cartoonish villain who was the only recurring antagonist but irrelevant to the rest of the plot (e.g. Aku).

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

Villains who are Pure Evil can NEVER qualify because their acts are always serious and/or fearsome in comparison to others. This is applicable even if they appear to be funny because their humor is usually sadistic and makes them even more threatening (e.g. Pennywise, Kefka Palazzo, most versions of The Joker, Dimentio, Freddy Krueger and Chucky), while a Comic Relief's humor is genuinely played off to make them less threatening and even can redeem them (e.g. Lord Qin).

Comedy Villains can never qualify unless there is a Game Changer in the story considering if a villain is Comic Relief it means the story is very serious but this villain lightens up the story while Comedy villains are in a comedy-intended story.

Examples include Condiment King and Tabitha.
