The Anti-Villain is the opposite of an AntiHero a villain with heroic goals, personality traits, and/or virtues. Their desired ends are mostly good, but their means of getting there are evil. Alternatively, their desired ends are ''evil'', but far more ethical or moral than most villains and they thus use fairly benign means to achieve it, and can be heroic on occasion. They could also be someone or something whose desired ends or means are not necessarily "evil" at all, but their actions simply conflict with that of whoever seems to be the protagonist.

Most of them are probably well aware that what they're doing is "evil", unlike the blinded KnightTemplar, but strive to maintain a facade of [[SlaveToPR good PR]]. They'll see it as a viable [[IDidWhatIHadToDo means]] to a (possibly) good end.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' has [[spoiler: Agent Washington]] who is only after the Blood Gulch crew to take Epsilon back to the Chairman so he doesn't have to go to prison. Adding to this, the only reason he has to get Epsilon in the first place is because Caboose didn't turn Epsilon in like [[spoiler: Wash]] told him to.

Anti-Villain is an attempt to humanize, to lighten up, a villain as opposed to an AntiHero, which has a tendency to darken the hero. Side by side, it can become very hard to tell them apart. The only reason some would even be considered evil at all is because they're the DesignatedVillain. Despite this humanizing {{character|Development}}ization, they are rarely less dangerous. For instance, heroes wouldn't know what to expect if [[AffablyEvil their enemy shows caring]] and then [[ClearMyName attacks their reputation]], without giving them an excuse to [[ThouShaltNotKill rationalize]] killing them.
