* Aku from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is MadeOfEvil, and has a dim understanding of the concept of "good" (about the closest he can get is "Free beef jerky for everyone"). He thought that sending Jack to the future would crush his spirit, but Jack ended up being a rallying point for the abused masses of Aku's reign. Additionally, other things that are lost on him are "respect" and "teamwork", as he has ChronicBackstabbingDisorder to the highest degree and has actually screwed himself over time and again because he cannot help but betray his allies in some form or another, even when he's trying really hard not to.

** While they may not be truly evil, Mon-El's parents, Lar and Rhea, are shown to truly not understand how it was wrong that in their rule of Daxam, they basically kept the populace enslaved and lived the high life on the backs of the poor. When Mon-El (who's changed his attitude due to living on Earth) refuses to go back and rebuild it, his parents are baffled as to why he thinks the old Daxam was wrong.

** Zamasu of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' is firmly convinced that all mortal life is AlwaysChaoticEvil and [[FinalSolution must be eradicated]] for the good of the universe. While he ''does'' [[JerkassHasAPoint make several good points]] about how [[TheGodsMustBeLazy the gods' no-intervention policy allows evil mortals to get away with all manner of atrocities]], Zamasu's FatalFlaw is that he's [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity incapable of understanding]] that while the mortals ''are'' flawed, they can still learn and grow from their mistakes.

** When Gohan [[TakingTheBullet takes the attack]] that Cell meant for Vegeta, Cell openly wonders ''why'' Gohan would do so.
-->'''Cell''': Why would Gohan sacrifice himself to save Vegeta? Hm...I will never understand the ways of these Saiyans.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', Gihren doesn't seem to understand why his sister Kycilia would be upset that [[spoiler:he killed their father. He assumes she's joking when she pulls a gun on him and his final expression is one of pure shock, as he never predicted that she would kill him to avenge their father.]]
* The undeniable Queen of Evil in all ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' Universes, Katejina Loos from ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'', ''literally'' got sick since she couldn't comprehend Shakti's thoughts of ending the battle and preserving life.
* Haman Khan from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' descended into cynicism and nihilism well before the series began, which is why she can't understand why Judau refuses to join her. She tries several separate approaches to manipulate and seduce him to her side, but all fail.
* Ultimately, Char Aznable at the end of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' shows that he can't understand why Amuro keeps fighting to preserve Earth and the Federation noting that even the best of them has the potential to destroy everyone anyway. Amuro agrees that HumansAreFlawed, but that humans also have the potential to ''save'' people too, and his hope in people is what ultimately wins out in the end--his determination to save the people of Earth is so powerful that it reverses the effects of Earth's gravity outright on the remains of Axis.

** Queen Chrysalis suffers even worse from this in the season six finale. [[spoiler:Chrysalis believes that love is something that you ''take'', not ''give''. When Thorax gives it freely, he attains a pure and powerful form, and practically every other changeling goes along. Chrysalis still fights back, and she then rejects Starlight's offer of peace, even though she's lost everything.]]

* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', this is ultimately averted with the demons. As we learn a few seasons in, this is because [[spoiler:they were all human before being [[TortureMakesYouEvil tortured for centuries in hell]]]]. Ironically, this is ultimately played straight starting about the same time we learn that secret, with [[spoiler:Heaven's angels. They're all dicks and, having never been human, can't understand humans]].

* In ''Superman: Brainiac'', Brainiac has stolen the city of Metropolis for his collection and is [[PunyEarthlings deriding Earth's perceived flaws]] to the captive Superman; it has none of Krypton's science, its weapons are primitive. He concludes that the entire culture is useless and asks Superman what they could possibly offer him. The whole time he's talking, Lois Lane, thinking the end is nigh, is desperately crying out to Superman from the shrunken Metropolis, [[AnguishedDeclarationOfLove trying to tell him she loves him before it's too late.]] The implication is that if Brainiac had listened to her, he would have the answer to his question.
