* '''Type 1''' places more emphasis on Chaotic than Evil, believing that their own freedom is the most important thing. They're far from being a noble person (they're still Evil after all), but they value the ''ability'' to commit acts of evil over actually committing them. As a result, this type of character can actually side with the forces of Good in the fight for freedom. They are often TheFriendNobodyLikes or the TokenEvilTeammate. Never turn your back on them; if they feel like their freedom is being infringed they'll go wild just to prove you can't control them. Given a lot of patience, a crapload of love, a sprinkling of luck, and a great big stick, a Type 1 may gradually reform into ChaoticNeutral or even ChaoticGood, [[ReformedButNotTamed but don't hold your breath]].
* '''Type 2''' is the exact opposite. They are so Evil that they would rather side with the bad guys even if they're the ones in charge. 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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', the VillainProtagonist Bender is Chaotic and Evil. Even the Robot Devil agrees that there are no robots worse than him. He is the Chaotic form of Chaotic Evil, prefering personal freedom above all things, and is the team's TokenEvilTeammate.

** He cares about Fry deeply. However this for a ChaoticEvil character, Bender is in a rare example of EvenEvilHasStandards; Bender considers Fry his best friend, and has shown considerable emotion at his loss, although he often treats him rather badly. He has even promised to never kill him, the way that somebody would care about a dear pet. He's been a jerk only other exception being Hermes, after he helped Bender come to Fry repeatedly.terms with being imperfect. When given the choice he will consistently side with his friends.



** Unlike most examples, though, he does have [[EvenEvilHasStandards some limits to how far he'll go]] and is capable of at least a small amount of empathy. Usually if Fry (or another member of the Planet Express) is about to die, he'll save them. And when he adopted a group of orphans (with the intention of using them to get money from the government) he ''did'' grudgingly feed them and keep them out of harm's way.

** The Archons of 4e aren't too far behind him. They are disciplined, regimented, highly organized and otherwise you'd think they were personifications of Lawful Neutral or Lawful Evil. However, they are living weapons whose sole reason to exist is to kill everything else that exists. They're not really sentient, as such, just pure, highly developed, militaristic instinct they don't squabble over power because each instinctively knows how strong it is and how it relates to other Archons in that regard. They do act as mercenaries, but that's merely a way to acquire treasure (to lure would-be thieves to them so they can fight them) and an excuse to kill. They have no understanding of mercy, kindness, love, peace or anything that doesn't revolve around killing... and they have no capacity to learn to understand such concepts. To live is to kill. To kill is to live. There is nothing else to Archons. They are elemental [[TheTerminator Terminators]].

* Anime/DigimonAdventure has Puppetmon, an AxCrazy, impulsive and immature {{Living Toy|s}}; easily the character most blatantly of this alignment in the Franchise/{{Digimon}} anime. The three other Dark Masters ([=MetalSeadramon=], Machinedramon and Piedmon) also qualify. Their [[TheManBehindTheMan true leader and creator]], Apocalymon fits as well, along with Myotismon's reincarnations [=VenomMyotismon=] and [=MaloMyotismon=].

%%** Yubel from Anime/YugiohGX also qualifies.
* VillainProtagonist, {{Yandere}} and AxCrazy Yuno [[spoiler:(Specifically her 1st world incarnation)]] of Manga/FutureDiary also fits into this alignment. She would be NeutralEvil if not for the sheer rate that she killed people- she can barely go a some few chapters without causing violence that would invariably leave at least some dead, regardless if they were trying to harm Yukiteru, and she generally kills, dismembers, schemes, plots, manipulates and does a lot of shit to people whims with little to no regard about them or her being caught (not that the average cop would survive trying to catch her anyway).

If you have a difficulty deciding which alignment an Evil-aligned character belongs to, the main difference between LawfulEvil, NeutralEvil and Chaotic Evil is not their devotion to their evil wishes, but what methods they believe are best to realizing it:

One of the nine alignments from the best-known CharacterAlignment system. If ChaoticNeutral is the truly free spirit, Chaotic Evil is the truly free ''evil'' spirit. Whereas the ChaoticNeutral character is concerned mainly with his own freedom but doesn't seek to hurt others, the same cannot be said for a Chaotic Evil character. They will do whatever they want whenever they want to do it, which, seeing as they are evil, usually entails lots and lots of death and destruction. These characters are usually the most aggressive of the Evil alignments, more often than not being possessed of an impulsively violent nature and a total disregard for people, laws, or even the world around them. In short, Chaotic Evil represents the destruction of not only life and goodness, but also the order upon which they depend.

* {{Dracula}}, the titular BigBad of Franchise/{{Castlevania}} franchise!!! He turns to the psychotic mass murder of humans to avenge his beloved wife. [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Soma Cruz]], normally ChaoticGood, could become this as well if he sees the same fate happening in front of his very eyes.
