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, Albert Wesker, Adam Taurus, Ultron, John Doe, Wallace Breen, Kilgrave, Ego, Zamasu/Goku Black, Shou Tucker, Bellroc, Lieutenant Obsidian, Skrael, Koba, Unalaq 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, Cinder Fall, 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/believing to have good intentions doesn't exactly make the villain better. They deny all responsibility for their actions out of pride/cowardice and don't show any remorse for them, while also constantly lying to themselves just so they can stay blameless in their own twisted little minds. Therefore, delusional villains who are Pure Evil are always hypocritical in their beliefs and thus should always be under the Hypocrites category.

These villains are the opposite of Misguided Pure Goods.
