***It could be argued that Redcloak is a deconstruction of this trope. He freely admits that he considers himself "evil" because he opposes those that define themselves as "good", and his actions and goals [[note]]Wage a revenge war against the azurites because their paladins massacred his village, create a sovereign goblin nation, and lift his god to the level of the major gods so someone will be able to plead for the goblins.[[/note]] can be seen as sympathetic, or even justifiable.

* Simultaneously lampshaded and subverted in-universe in ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'', where Jon describes himself to Mandi as [[http://www.errantstory.com/2004-04-07/215 "a fully licensed and bonded, official, card-carrying, non-nice person" who kills people for money]]. Mandi isn't buying it, though, and reminds him of his soft spot for helping anyone with a pair of ovaries, making him more of a card-carrying AntiHero.

* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'': In the ''[[HarryPotter Torg Potter]]'' parodies, Lucius Malfoy wears a nametag saying "I'm a bad guy! My name is: Lucius Malfoy". Also {{invoked}} with the equivalent for Slytherin House, because it's explicitly where they put all the students who are "bad guys", and who are encouraged to remain that way so as not to mess up the paperwork. Small wonder if they identify as bad guys after that.

* Black Mage Evilwizardington in ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'', if his last name didn't give it away already. Hell, he even tried joining the bad guys after gleefully wasting all his fire spells on [[GoddamnedBats BATS]] and leaving the Light Warriors to die inside a block of solid ice: -->'''Drizzl:''' What do you think you're doing?\\ '''Black Mage:''' I'd say I was joining the winning side, but that would imply that there was some point where I wasn't part of team evil.

* In ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'', all of the monsters of the mountain identify themselves as evil, though only the Drow (and King Louie the Liche) act like it. The only real difference between the rest of the monsters and the "good" humans and elves are a tendency to eat other sentient beings and a casual approach to mortal violence. Can be meta-LampshadeHanging on the initial idea of alignments as sides in the war: you don't really have to pass an Evil Test to side with your family, do you? * Black Mage Evilwizardington in ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'', if his last name didn't give it away already. ** Hell, he even tried joining the bad guys after gleefully wasting all his fire spells on [[GoddamnedBats BATS]] and leaving the Light Warriors to die inside a block of solid ice: -->'''Drizzl:''' What do you think you're doing?\\ '''Black Mage:''' I'd say I was joining the winning side, but that would imply that there was some point where I wasn't part of team evil.

* Xykon from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' (as seen in the trope image) prides himself on his evilness. This pride is justified. ** As do ''most'' OOTS villains, both for the same reasons as [[Tabletopgame/DungeonsAndDragons D&D]] and because it fits so well with its playing with the FourthWall nature. Even Belkar, a [[TokenEvilTeammate member of the good guys' team]], at least accepts, or even revels in, his [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0610.html Chaotic Evilness]] as a fact.

** Redcloak is an interesting example: he admits he and his god are evil by Dungeons and Dragons alignments, but he still [[WellIntentionedExtremist thinks his actions are justified]]. He seems to think of alignments as being more like team names than actual moral judgments (which they were initially intended to be, in fact. It gets rather weird from there).

* In ''WebComic/{{Precocious}}'', most of the children who even [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/comic/2009/06/30 play as the Super Villain Union]], but a special mention goes to Dionne, who even freely admits her selfishness and evil intentions [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/comic/2010/03/12 in a debate for class president]].

* In ''BobAndGeorge'', [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/000620c Dr. Wily explains his actions: he's evil.]] * ''BobTheAngryFlower'' once had a violent confrontation with a man who only gave his name as the Evil Business Guy Made of Butter. Well, allegedly had a violent confrontation with an alleged Evil Business Guy made of pure creamy butter.

* A certain story arc in {{Nodwick}} involved him being captured by the Brotherhood of Evil Henchmen in an attempt to get him to do a FaceHeelTurn and devote his henching skills to their benefit. The guild master gleefully explained at one point that they only worked for villains.

* Seren of ''Webcomic/{{Karin-dou 4koma}}'' has a ''demon lord license''. It expired more than twenty years ago after she forgot to renew it, but she's thinking about reapplying now that she has free time. It's actually just a {{LARP}} thing, though; the ''true'' demon lord is locked in Seren's [[PocketDimension closet]].
