Pure Evil Wiki
Judge Claude Frollo longed to purge the world of vice and sin. And he saw corruption everywhere, except within.

Villains who believe that what they are doing is right and that they are the heroes of their own story. Even if their belief is contradicted by reality, they will still believe it till the end. As they always see themselves as noble people, no matter how horrible they truly are, their delusions are a major corrupting quality. Judge Claude Frollo, Bradford Buzzard, Albert Wesker, Ultron, John Doe, Wallace Breen, Kilgrave, Ego, Zamasu, Goku Black, Shou Tucker, Bellroc, Lieutenant Obsidian, Skrael, Koba, Unalaq, Grimmel the Grisly and Light Yagami are prime examples.

NOTE: Villains that only think of themselves as a higher person than other people and are self-righteous do not qualify (e.g. Syndrome, Emperor Palpatine, Lord Voldemort, Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear, Mysterio, General Dreykov, Ozai, John Garrett and Daniel Whitehall), those should go under Arrogant and/or Egotists instead. It's mandatory for any delusional Pure Evil villain to think of themselves as actually a good person and keep their mindset even if their actions and motives prove the opposite.

  • It's also worth mentioning that pretending to have good intentions doesn't exactly make the villain better. If anything, it makes them worse because they refuse to take any responsibility for their actions while constantly lying to themselves and blaming everyone else. Therefore, delusional villains who are Pure Evil are always hypocritical in their beliefs and thus should always be under the hypocrites category.
