** ''Disgaea'' demon logic [[InsaneTrollLogic can be an odd thing]]. Since bad is good and good is bad, they might [[MindScrew act good in order to be bad]]. For example, in ''VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice'', the setting is a school where slackers, cheaters and bullies are considered honor students, while students who actually attend class and do volunteer work are considered delinquents. There are demons that purposely try to be "delinquents" because they think it makes them look {{badass}}.

* This is lampshaded and exploited by Huey, Dewey, and Louie in the ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' episode "The Boy Who Cried Ghost", where they frighten the monsters by wearing the cutesy Halloween costumes they got stuck with and having their uncle Donald pretend to be a baby, reasoning that since monsters are hideous they would be horrified of cute things.

Can also be why EvilCannotComprehendGood. If they simply loathe all positive attributes without necessarily emphasizing their evil ones, they're probably more of a believer in VirtueIsWeakness.

Compare AboveGoodAndEvil and WhatIsEvil. Villains whose strong point is not logic will sometimes use both tropes to justify this. See also BizarroUniverse and BlueAndOrangeMorality.

* In the over-the-top CrapsackWorld that is the dark world of Résurrecion in ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'', the more cruel a person was in life, the better rewarded they are in the death, while the innocents or those who committed minor sins suffer the worst. The main protagonist used to be a [[NaziProtagonist Nazi soldier]] who was cruel enough to become a vampire - the ruling elite of Résurrecion composed of people like {{Dracula}}, Attila the Hun, Caligula and Nero to name a few. Yet, because he still retained a sense of honor and chivalry, he is regarded as ''a degenerate freak by his fellows''.

His Mahrkagir's motto is "Ill thoughts, ill words, ill deeds."deeds", in homage to the [[GodOfEvil evil]] [[TheAntiGod Anti-God]] he worships. Ironically, it bars him from his own god's priesthood, since prospective members have to [[IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten eat a loved one's heart]] and he [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove doesn't even know what love is]]. [[spoiler:In a further irony, as soon as he falls in love with Phèdre for that exact purpose, she kills him.]]

* Hater and Peepers from ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' run on this to the point where an outbreak of "happiness" on their ship (caused by Wander distributing presents amongst the {{Mook}}s) is treated like TheVirus and unfolds from their perspective as a horror film.
