* [[ComicBook/{{Miracleman}} Kid Miracleman]]/Marvelman displays this trope when he goes over the edge. Moments after starting his slaughter-spree, he spares the life of a nurse who had been kind to him. He returns a moment later, saying "They'd only say I was going soft...", and pulverises the top of her skull with a blast of his eye-beams.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}'' enemy the Legion of Super-Villains.
* Justified with ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} enemy Satan Girl (self-named, mind you). Being Kara Zor-El's evil duplicate, she's basically dark desires and impulses made flesh with no conscience to hold them back, so she delights in evil for the sake of evil.

* In ''Comicbook/XMen'', ComicBook/{{Sabretooth}} thinks himself a violent, animalistic savage who lives only to hunt and kill, and is ''very'' proud of this fact. He does [[AxCrazy a very good]] [[PsychoForHire job at living]] [[ImAHumanitarian up to this]].

** The film version of ''Film/XMen'' avoids this by having Magneto simply call his group "The Brotherhood of Mutants".

* PlayedForLaughs in G. Willow Wilson's run of ''ComicBook/MsMarvel'', where villainous henchman Doyle wears (in addition to his "1985 hair and a laser gun") a sleeveless shirt with "IMA BAD GUY" on it.

*** Subverted by the Dark Judges. Their name and appearance might be a dead give-away, but they are even more of a KnightTemplar than Judge Dredd.

* Subverted by ComicBook/DoctorDoom. [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The name he uses]] and [[TinTyrant manner in which he dresses]] at first glance gives the impression that he's making no bones about the fact that he's a supervillain, but he's so egotistical that he actually thinks of himself as a fair and wise ruler.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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]].

Added DiffLines:

* [[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.
-->'''Magneto:''' Loyalty! '''Bah!''' I rule by '''fear''' alone!
