* ''Film/{{Megamind}}'' had the title character raised in jail, at one point being taught to cheer burglars and boo policemen. He also has a conversation with Minion that run on this theme, ending with "You don't know what's good for bad!"

Added DiffLines:

* The Grims, the villains of ''WesternAnimation/The7D'', are a pair of [[CardCarryingVillain card-carrying]] fairy-tale villains who hate goodness. Hildy is disgusted at having to do good deeds while posing as a good witch in "Hildy the Good", and both Hildy and Grim are horrified when they experience "joy" during the ChristmasEpisode "Jollybells".

Added DiffLines:

* In one episode of ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', they performed "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". The Muppet!Devil took offense when Kermit told him his performance was pretty good.
-->'''Devil:''' "Good"?! I'm not ''supposed'' to be ''good''! Aw...

* Saddam Hussein, as depicted on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. He loves Hell so much that when [[EvenEvilHasStandards Satan finally decides that he's had all he can stand of Saddam]], he banishes the dictator to Heaven (which in the ''South Park'' universe is populated only by Mormons). Saddam is immediately shanghaied by a troupe of actors who are just about to stage a play about how lying hurts people, and he is dragged off [[BigNo screaming in despair]].

** ''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.
