* ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' takes place in a Hell-like dimension where anybody who is somebody in this place embraces evil wholeheartedly. For example, the most depraved and evil people in history reincarnate as vampires and they form the top hierarchy of society, having completely embraced their twisted nature. The Dystopians are lizard-people who committed terrible crimes in name of colonialism and greed, the mummies were scientists who created disastrous experiments and so forth. The ghouls are exception to this, since they were people that committed crimes in [[WellIntentionedExtremist name of the greater good]] and as such, feel like they don't deserve being in Hell for it, and are looked down by the vampires as inferior beings because they are [[AtLeastIAdmitIt unrepentant about their crimes]].

* [[ComicBook/{{Magneto}} Magneto's]] early characterization was sufficiently [[AmbiguousDisorder borderline autistic]] to make him this. Most (in)famously in his guest appearance in the [[WesternAnimation/TheFantasticFour1978 1978]] Fantastic Four animated series, but really, that is only slightly more over-the-top than he was in the comics. When the [[TheIgor Toad]] or the [[TheHeart Scarlet Witch]] would profess their loyalty to him, he would usually sneer something to the effect that he did not want followers motivated by fickle love and devotion, but rather fear and blind obedience.

* The very first appearance of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's archenemy, the ComicBook/RedSkull, had him exit stage left saying "I'll be back - with ''more murder!''"

* The [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks very first first]] appearance of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's archenemy, the ComicBook/RedSkull, had him exit stage left saying "I'll be back - with ''more murder!''"murder!''" Subverted, however, in that as early as the Silver Age, he became increasingly more of an ideologically sincere [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist Nazi true believer]], as opposed to a merely power-hungry or randomly evil villain. His modern characterization fluctuates between card-carrying villainy and outright self-righteous KnightTemplar behavior, DependingOnTheWriter.

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker once identified himself to Black Canary as "genuine, card-carrying, lock-me-up-throw-away-the-key lunatic!" It sparked a letter column debate (remember those?) about whether or not insane people could recognize themselves as being insane.

* During ''ComicBook/DarkReign'', MarvelComics introduced Zodiac, a guy who killed every single member of an old supervillain team with the same name so he wouldn't be confused with them. Zodiac plots about the fall of Norman Osborn. Why? Because he finds [[VillainWithGoodPublicity Osborn's new position]] an insult to all who just wants to commit evil for its own sake, like himself.
