* An example where "Evil Misinterprets The Concept Of Good" in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', where Puppetmon is a PsychopathicManchild who thinks having friends means having living toys. That friends can be thrown out [[YouHaveFailedMe whenever they failed you]], [[ItAmusedMe for boredom]], [[OffingTheMouth annoyed]], or [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness simply lost interest in them]]. Before he was killed by [[=MetalGarurumon=]], Matt, who's the holder of [[PowerOfFriendship the Crest of Friendship]] [[TheREasonYouSuckSpeech tell him off that]] Puppetmon doesn't understand what having friends means.

*Sort of, in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', if you accept that the four are the only “good goods” on C'hou. Everyone else is simply baffled by [[ActualPacifist their refusal to kill or even harm things]], to the point where [[spoiler: the Circle]] decides it's safer to depower and lock them up rather than let them continue behaving the way they do; they're worried that the four might try to take over the organization. Which completely misunderstands their motives, even though they explicitly say ''all they want to do is bring the Black Tower down as quickly as possible and go home''. No one can quite believe this.

** For that matter, The Plutonian himself doesnt actually understand good and never did. The reason he was TheCape for so long was because of a deep pathological need for mindless adoration brought on by his shitty childhood. He was never actually interested in justice or being good, he just mimiced these actions to get the approval he craved.

** This is his whole reason for his hatred of Superman in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'': he was abused as a child, and prayed to God for it to stop, only for it to continue, concluding that either GodIsEvil or doesn't exist. Naturally, he views Superman's mere existence as an affornt to his worldview.

* In the original ''Film/MiracleOnThirtyFourthStreet'', Dr. Sawyer is about the closest thing thing we have to a legitimate villain. He openly believes that the only reason Alfred likes playing Santa, or that Kris claims to be Santa, is because they are both delusional. As far as he's concerned, anyone who's that nice has be harboring a severe guilt complex.

The inability to comprehend good altruistic behaviour ([[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished especially when it results in punishment]] ) is a common trait in [[TheCynic cynics]], {{Straw Nihilist}}s, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive greedy economics-minded people]], {{Social Darwinist}}s, and [[TheSociopath sociopaths]] (who really are incapable of feeling things that have no selfish incentive, such as compassion). This is TruthInTelevision in many cases.
