Pure Evil Wiki
A Jedi? [laughs] I am no longer naïve enough to be a Jedi. A new power's rising; I've foreseen it. The Jedi are going to lose this war and the Republic will be ripped apart from the inside. In it's place is going to rise a new order, and I will rule as part of it.
~ Pong Krell, revealing his fall to the dark side and foretelling the outcome of the Clone Wars to Captain Rex.
NO! I've been traveling out in space for forty years-- eating and killing, devouring everything in sight... only to learn I'd be coming back here, to Earth... a place where I can't hide what I once was-- can't forget it, the evidence is right here-- all around us. We were heroes. And we return to find living people here! With families! We can't do this again! We just can't! I won't let you!
~ Spider-Man reminding Giant-Man and the other Avengers about their past as superheroes.

Pure Evil villains who were once heroes. These types of villains once fought on the side of good but turned to villainy. While they've turned to villainy, these type of villains have shed all their redeeming qualities. While it's undoubtedly true that when a character has committed heinous acts on their own accord that they can't be ever considered Pure Good, however, a fallen hero may have at one point followed the criteria of a Pure Good very well, later abandoning that with the worst possible outcome being a total 180 of the good criteria they once were that is Pure Evil at its finest. Due to obvious reasons, these villains also count as Wholly Debased.

They are the opposite of Redeemed Villains.


Please note that a character must be a hero before turning evil.
