* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has [[spoiler:Zarc, the original self of protagonist Yuya and his alternative selves. Zarc has made it very clear that he wants to destroy the world, one at a time. But it's averted when Ray states he must have had some good in him, as [[AllLovingHero Yuya]] had his original personality.]]

* Ladd Russo from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' is a [[LargeHam hammy ]]PsychoForHire who freely admits that all he loves is killing, killing, and more killing. When his uncle tells him "Homicidal lunatics think you're a nutcase!" He informs him that his "[[InsultBackfire attempts at flattery are so ham handed]]."

* Team Rocket (the whole organisation, not the TerribleTrio) in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. According to Cassidy and [[AccidentalMisnaming Billy]], rivals to the trio, the motto they use is the real Team Rocket motto (where there are phrases like "To infect the world with devastation!" and "To blight all people in every nation!") and the motto Jessie and James use is, instead, a corrupted version (this version has phrases that imply that they see themselves as {{Knight Templar}}s). Ironically, when Jessie and James updated their motto to become {{Card Carrying Villain}}s (from Battle Frontier up to the end of Sinnoh), the motto Cassidy and Paunch use was also updated, and the phrases were KnightTemplar-ish themselves.

** ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Dr. Hell got his backstory and a motivation to want to TakeOverTheWorld in the Gosaku Ota manga version (essentially he's a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds wants to force everybody to [[KneelBeforeZod kneel before him]]), and most of his CoDragons follow him out of loyalty. But Viscount Pygman felt no loyalty towards Hell. Mind raping and brainwashing several characters, [[{{Badass}} fighting Mazinger-Z and Aphrodite-a with his bare hands]], wreaking havok, [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs take over]] [[HomeBase the Institute]]... his motivation to make all these things seemed being "for the hell of it".

* Several villains (and [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality heroes]]) in ''Manga/OnePiece'' revel in their status as criminals and rejoice when their bounties increase (though some, like [[OnlySaneMan Nami]], don't see what all the fuss is about, and others, like Robin, are nonchalant about it). The Seven Warlords of the Sea are considered 'Government Dogs' for choosing to become privateers to the World Government (though next to nobody is [[TooDumbToLive dumb enough to say that within earshot of any of them]]).

** In terms of the Pokémon themselves, Ekans/Arbok and Koffing/Weezing insist to be {{Punch Clock Villain}}s that follow the orders of Jessie and James, but otherwise are amiable to the twerps' Pokémon. (see: "Island of the Giant Pokémon") ''Meowth'', however, is a ''technically'' wild Pokémon who seems to engage in Team Rocket's villainy for kicks. While he also has his "nice" moments (especially in the Pikachu shorts), he more often than not has an ulterior motive for such cooperative behavior (for example, his HeelFaceMole mini-arc in Best Wishes).

* Being a Deconstruction PlayedForLaughs of the FightingSeries, MutekiKanbanMusume presents Megumi as a deconstruction of this trope: She is only a CombatPragmatist willing to do anything, no matter how low, to beat TheRival Miki, but she has a GuiltComplex so big about this she sees herself as evil due to her self-hatred, taking her to proudly announce her ''"evil"'' plans to Miki while laughing an EvilLaugh (just a really annoying NoblewomansLaugh).

* The anime version of Aion from ''ChronoCrusade'' is one of these. He's the literal Anti-Christ, scoffs at the idea of "desire being called a sin" and attempts to rape one female character and brainwashes another for his own gain.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' has the freaking incarnation of the third sphere, Ali Al-Saachez. Gundam series generally (pretend to) have multidimensional villains with some understandable motivations. Or, at least, villains that are good at self-justification and excuses. Ali is probably the only villain in the entire franchise to readily admit that he loves war for war's sake, that he commits his (numerous) crimes ForTheEvulz, and that this makes him the worst sort of person in the world. He has absolutely no problem with it.

** ''Series/AfterWarGundamX'' has Shagia and Olba Frost, a BigBadDuumvirate who ally themselves with a new petty tyrant or corrupt official almost weekly (after first backstabbing the previous one) and whose goal is to make humanity destroy itself just because some Federation officials didn't think their TwinTelepathy was useful. They take a good deal of satisfaction in their killing and betraying; when plotting with each other, Shagia outright says they'll have to do something evil, and Olba is particularly fond of KickTheDog.

** Because of their openness abou their crimes, the Hückebein are a big contrast to the other main villain, Hades Vandein, who pretends to be an innocent civilian despite being ObviouslyEvil.
