Still, I believe good manners dictate that we should send out the welcome wagon.
~ Dr. Arliss Loveless
Which would you rather have, the crouton or the entire Caesar salad? Of course, we're going to eat the mice, but only after we have exploited their labors. We are nice to the mice because it is intelligent to be so. See, if we talk sweetly, they will come in droves. If we hiss, they will run and we will have to chase after them, an unnecessary expenditure of calories.
~ Cat R. Waul
It differs, but I have everything to be a high-standing person in general. I have the wealth, the manners, and the type of personality to get threw with it. You all might be slobs, but I, I, am not by a long shot.
~ Ella Visagie on her sophisticated manner

Sophisticated villains are characters who are very cultivated and refined, often as a result of coming from or interacting with a higher social status. They usually act in a generally polite albeit condescending and opprobrious manner ranging from genuine respect to manipulating others with false kindness. It is also common for them to look down on others they consider "lower" than them.

They are the exact opposites of Barbarians although it is common for them to shed any upper-class natures and become the savage monsters they are if at all (e.g. Ridley, Red Skull, Dr. Robotnik, Professor Ratigan, Hannibal Lecter, Oswald Cobblepot, Esdeath, Mrs. Tweedy, Judge Holden, Green Goblin, Joker, Nicole Wallace, Thanos, Ajax, Cecil Clayton, Morlun, Junko Enoshima, Major and Sir John Talbot).

This may also encompass complex villains with moral standings and views others are unable to describe (i.e. Rick Sanchez, Anton Chigurh and Shadow the Hedgehog).
