Huh? I didn't know.
I think this is actually a very interesting idea for a debate, let me know what you guys think.

Somewhat dead thread but i think that Rastapopolous and Dr. Muller should get an honorable mention as well.
Just copying and pasting this (my own words) here for my personal opinion:
Norton is more disgusting allowing rapes to happen in his prison, but Lotso literally had his prisoners ripped apart with their limbs (remember, potentially hundreds or at least lots of toys had to suffer this process), had someone sealed into a box filled with darkness which caused their body to be horribly flattened, and literally altered someone's mind to follow his orders and make them beat their own friends, not to mention leaving the people that saved him to burn alive in the incinerator.
It's not always being more disgusting which gets you more evil.
Palpatine is more disgusting, yes, but its not always about who has the bigger kill count or bigger atrocities for someone to be more malevolent than another, Johan represents a much bigger form of philosophy and malevolence than Palpatine considering Palpatine was driven by a drive for power but Johan did what he did because he simply could.
I'd also like to state that Johan is also willing to harm children and torment them mentally or manipulate them to commit suicide so its not really that much better than Palpatine experimenting on children.
Palpatine may be more destructive and violent, but Johan embodies a bigger philosophy and greater concept of irrational malevolence, Palpatine may be worse than the Devil but even Palpatine himself craved something like power, Johan on the other hand never craved such thing, he didn't want to do his goals out of revenge, pettiness, or even sadism: He just wanted to do them.
This is kinda a weird case.
Emperor Palpatine is more disgusting with much more heinous and destructive acts...but his goal is quite generic as it is to take over the galaxy, while Johan isn't motivated by power or anything for his motivations, he just wants to do the thing he wants to do, he embodies a greater philosophy than Palpatine.
I mean, sure maybe if their psychopathy or mental illness was removed, the Pure Evil MIGHT just be a little less malevolent or at least less violent or destructive but they'd still be evil nonetheless.
What are these questions? Of course, a Pure Evil out of their own choice will always stay evil.
@JackJackX How though? He literally got each and every limb of his brutally crushed and slowly brutally ripped apart by the Springbonnie suit and slowly crushed to death.
So i've thought on this for a bit, and maybe Koba's excuse is weaker? he kills apes despite claiming he fights for them and disregards even his own friends despite having a tragic background of having been abused by humans.
This is a really hard one, i genuinely do not know who to choose.
Yeah, ultimately regardless of how bad mental illness affects the Pure Evil in question, they still have a clear sense of good and wrong and choose to do what is wrong.
Well i don't truly know to be completely honest but maybe as a Pure Evil always has a complete moral agency.
I took a look at Seath's page but it seems like his excuse is weaker than the Scarlet King's, Seath might have not been born with the same immortality of all the other dragons but it seemed more of a case out of pettiness and envy, the Scarlet King's Freudian Excuse was at least somewhat sympathetic before his actions and he was in incredible pain due to his existence crisis.
You just proved my point
I only know the Scarlet King but how bad was Seath's situation? was he picked on for being born without scales? how bad was the disease? etc.
They may lack emotions, but they still know how to do good if they truly wanted to.
