* '''Type 3: The Feral Beast''' -- They are a monster, but they are a monster with intelligence. If you're not a predator, you're prey, and God forbid a Type 3 should see you as prey, since weakness is unforgivable.

The Feral Beast has a good chance of turning on their evil master and becoming the new, tougher, meaner BigBad.

They are traditionally [[AxCrazy batshit insane]] with a complete LackOfEmpathy (think SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker). This type is arguably the most dangerous of them all, as they don't care who they destroy or how they destroy them; the fact that they can be destroyed is enough. As a result, this character is usually the one that [[EnemyMine opposing sides in a conflict will work together to defeat]], as a Type 4 is undoubtedly a much worse foe than the one(s) they currently have.

The most dangerous character of this alignment, on the other hand, is undoubtedly TheChessmaster mixed in with OmnicidalManiac, with his cruel calculation and intelligence and the will to use it in the most horrible ways. When these types do come up, being Chaotic, they tend to specialize in the XanatosSpeedChess variation, excelling at adapting plans as events unfold rather than having every contingency prepared ahead of time.

* '''Type 1''' places more emphasis on Chaotic than Evil. Above all things they value their ''personal'' freedom, and as personalities they are greedy, selfish and hedonistic; therefore they want the freedom to fulfil their greedy, selfish and hedonistic desires. It is often seen in TheFriendNobodyLikes and the TokenEvilTeammate. What sets them apart from a Type 2 is their occasional demonstration that EvenEvilHasStandards - they sided with the good guys, didn't they? Don't turn your back on them for a moment though, because if they feel like their freedom is being infringed they may well go nuts just to prove you can't control them. They're too wild-spirited to really reform, but in the right company their PetTheDog moments may increase in frequency.
* '''Type 2''' is the exact opposite. They are so Evil that they would rather side with the bad guys even if they have to take a few orders. They place more value in unleashing fiery death and mayhem over the ability to do it at any time, so they take orders grudgingly but take them nonetheless. This type of Chaotic Evil makes for a particularly unpleasant brand of {{Mook}}, given that they may well revel in collateral damage and killing any fellow Mooks unfortunate enough to get in their way. If the BigBad handles his great big stick skillfully enough, a Type 2 may become NeutralEvil or even LawfulEvil simply out of habit. If, on the other hand, they ''are'' the BigBad, expect them to go out of their way to [[TheCaligula violate any sense of honour, tradition, loyalty, or responsibility]] normally associated with the leadership position, such as betraying their own Mooks purely ForTheEvulz.
* '''Type 3''' is very much feral in nature. They typically have an above average degree of intelligence, but luckily for everyone else they tend to be more about freedom than evil. They believe that you're either a predator or prey for another predator, so to them the only thing that matters is having the strength to take what you want. God help anyone who comes across a Type 3 and are viewed as prey, since to them weakness is unforgivable. Similar to Type 2, a clever enough BigBad will be able to manipulate this character to their own benefit, providing they completely dominate the Chaotic Evil character in both power and intelligence. Their guard must be kept up constantly though, as the moment the Type 3 sees an opportunity to take down the BigBad they will take it.
* '''Type 4''' is a fair balance between Types 1 and 2. They love doing evil as much as they love their freedom, and they have just enough self-control to construct a plan that involves doing both at once. They are traditionally [[AxCrazy batshit insane]] with a complete LackOfEmpathy (think SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker). This type is arguably the most dangerous of them all, as they don't care who they destroy or how they destroy them; the fact that they can be destroyed is enough. As a result, this character is usually the one that [[EnemyMine opposing sides in a conflict will work together to defeat]], as a Type 4 is undoubtedly a much worse foe than the one(s) they currently have. This type is often where you'll find the typical OmnicidalManiac that's in this alignment, and if they also happen to be a [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] then [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt you're pretty likely screwed]].
* '''Type 5''' is a WellIntentionedExtremist who saw (or a KnightTemplar who sees) himself as ChaoticGood (JustLikeRobinHood) but slowly passed over to the evil alignment, often without being consciously aware of it. You know what they say [[JumpedOffTheSlipperySlope about slippery slopes]]...


to:

* '''Type 1''' places more emphasis on Chaotic than Evil. 1: Chaos Over Evil''' -- Above all things they value their ''personal'' freedom, and as personalities they are greedy, selfish and hedonistic; therefore they want the freedom to fulfil their greedy, selfish and hedonistic desires. It is often seen in TheFriendNobodyLikes and the TokenEvilTeammate. What sets them apart from a Type 2 is their occasional demonstration that EvenEvilHasStandards - they sided with the good guys, didn't they? Don't turn your back on them for a moment though, because if they feel like their freedom is being infringed they may well go nuts just to prove you can't control them. They're too wild-spirited to really reform, but in the right company their PetTheDog moments may increase in frequency.
* '''Type 2''' is the exact opposite. 2: Evil Over Chaos''' -- They are so Evil that they would rather side with the bad guys even if they have to take a few orders. They place more value in unleashing fiery death and mayhem over the ability to do it at any time, so they take orders grudgingly but take them nonetheless. This type of Chaotic Evil makes for a particularly unpleasant brand of {{Mook}}, given that they may well revel in collateral damage and killing any fellow Mooks unfortunate enough to get in their way. If the BigBad handles his great big stick skillfully enough, a Type 2 may become NeutralEvil or even LawfulEvil simply out of habit. If, on the other hand, they ''are'' the BigBad, expect them to go out of their way to [[TheCaligula violate any sense of honour, tradition, loyalty, or responsibility]] normally associated with the leadership position, such as betraying their own Mooks purely ForTheEvulz.
* '''Type 3''' is very much feral in nature. 3: The Feral Beast''' -- They typically have an above average degree of intelligence, are a monster, but luckily for everyone else they tend to be more about freedom than evil. They believe that are a monster with intelligence. If you're either not a predator or prey for another predator, so to them the only thing that matters is having the strength to take what you want. you're prey, and God help anyone who comes across forbid a Type 3 and are viewed should see you as prey, since to them weakness is unforgivable. Similar to Type 2, a A clever enough BigBad will may be able to manipulate this character to their own benefit, providing huy, but they completely must dominate the Chaotic Evil character Feral Beast completely in both power strength and intelligence. Their guard must be kept up constantly though, as The Feral Beast has a good chance of turning on their evil master and becoming the moment the Type 3 sees an opportunity to take down the BigBad they will take it.
new, tougher, meaner BigBad.
* '''Type 4''' is a fair balance between Types 1 and 2. 4: The Intelligent Monster''' -- They love doing evil as much as they love their freedom, and they have just enough self-control to construct a plan that involves doing both at once. They are traditionally [[AxCrazy batshit insane]] with a complete LackOfEmpathy (think SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker). This type is arguably the most dangerous of them all, as they don't care who they destroy or how they destroy them; the fact that they can be destroyed is enough.
