* Thoroughly embraced by Floyd Mayweather Jr., who actively and gleefully seizes the black hat in the build-up to any of his big fights. Initially, the boxing ur-example would have been Muhammad Ali, but he eventually became the most beloved figure in boxing, even today.

* The "villains" of UsefulNotes/ConspiracyTheories frequently seem to have no motivation other than being evil. Why are doctors and scientists insisting there's no link between vaccines and autism? Because they're evil. Why did those evil Jews cause the recession? Because they're evil. If a motivation is offered, it will be "money", as though doing evil things causes money to materialize out of thin air.

** Discord is another example. He outright calls himself a 'sadistic hedonist' and has no delusions about the fact he's an evil monster, but in his case, the reason he's this trope is it's easier to justify his actions if he's completely evil and cannot be anything else. IE, he shouldn't feel bad for his misdeeds because he can't be anything else, so why should he? It's shown that the idea he might have any good in him and is thus redeemable ''[[[HopeIsScary scares him to death]]'' to the point [[spoiler:being reminded of his SplitPersonality Dissy, who was a genuinely good person and loved their mother Shady]] is almost certain to trigger a FreakOut.

Surprisingly, however, sometimes a Card Carrying Villain usually has one '[[EvilVirtues redeeming]]' quality, as far as villains go: [[AtLeastIAdmitIt They're honest.]] They will not hide the fact that they're the villainous scumbag, they will not deceive you that they were worthy of some sympathy by being a misguided WellIntentionedExtremist, [[EvenEvilHasStandards that's just]] [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]]. This may make them more obvious targets for the heroes to gun down, but they will not hide behind sweet talks, and sometimes lies would hurt more than a blatant assault. They are also not self-righteous at all.

# ''[[ChaoticEvil Destruction]]'' - the Villain wants to destroy and kill [[ForTheEvulz for its own sake]]. [[OmnicidalManiac Taken to the extreme]], the first and second spheres may recognize that this includes ''them'' as well, so this often results in EvilVersusOblivion or EvilerThanThou if the villain teams up with the heroes so they can TakeOverTheWorld at a later date. (You can't take over the world if it's [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt not there!]])

Card-Carrying Villains are particularly likely to do something ForTheEvulz. Expect them to have [[DarkIsEvil relations with the dark]] and/or have [[BadPowersBadPeople evil powers.]] Also expect plenty of [[EvilIsPetty petty behavior]].
