** Normally GenreSavvy villain Tarquin also falls into this, to the point of trying to destroy a man's life for daring to speak to him as an equal.

* Kuroto Dan/Kamen Rider Genm from ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'', despite being the man who put the planet at risk with the [[TheVirus Bugster Virus]], is largely motivated by equal parts spite and [[AGodAmI God complex]]. When his own ally Pallad turned on him in order to protect [[TheHero Emu Hojo]] out of his desire [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou to have a fair fight with the hero]], Dan responds by telling Emu [[spoiler:that he's PatientZero for the Bugster Virus]], hoping to kill him ''entirely'' to screw over Pallad. He considers himself the "one true Game Master" and thus whenever someone develops an "unauthorized" [[TransformationTrinket Gashat]], he sets out to destroy it with a vengeance. Then TheReveal of his StartOfDarkness makes it even worse, showing that he's had these attitudes since he was a young man, thanks to being a prodigy who helped design video games for his father's company. [[spoiler:Then one day, he got a fan letter from a little boy named Emu Hojo, who submitted his own ideas for a game. The idea that anyone else would '''dare''' try to step on his glory offended Kuroto so much that he sent Emu a prototype game infected with an early version of the Bugster Virus, all in the hopes that it would kill Emu.]]

** And even after everything he's done that would legitimately piss Anton off (namely putting a lot of buckshot on his leg), Llewelyn gets explicitly told that even if he had tried to avoid the whole mess he's in by giving Anton the money at the beginning, Anton ''still'' would have killed him just for having "inconvenienced" him.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' "Doomworld", the LegionOfDoom have rewritten reality to their [[VillainWorld liking]]. Some of these differences actually make the world better, but they get extremely petty with how they deal with the Legends.
** Thawne keeps Rip trapped in a miniaturized Waverider, turned Stein into a browbeaten employee, and Jax into a [[{{Jerkass}} jerkass]] security chief who enjoys tormenting Stein. He's also turned Nate into a Basement-Dweller (with a far less stylish haircut, to boot) and Ray into a janitor.
** Darhk uses Sara and Amaya as his personal attack dogs.
** They are all topped however by Malcolm Merlyn who took the time to ensure Nyssa (who isn't even a Legend) is living a "miserable, closeted life in Ohio". Making it even ''more'' petty is that he apparently didn't make himself Ra's Al-Ghul in this reality, so he did it just to be a dick.

Added DiffLines:

* Aku, the main antagonist of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack,'' cannot resist committing [[KickTheDog unnecessarily cruel and petty acts]] to people he's already screwed over, often to prove he can or just for a sick kick at their expense. He ends up taking it to StupidEvil levels as he ''always'' backstabs anyone he makes a deal with, just to laugh at their misfortune.

* In the beginning of ''[[Fanfic/TheUltimateEvil The Stronger Evil]]'', following the double-crossing from Shendu's part and the loss of his magic, Daolon Wong steals a gun and shoots Valerie Payne -- whom Shendu called [[VillainousCrush his bride]] -- in order to have revenge on Shendu. Trying to hurt a good character just to have revenge on what someone else did is petty enough, but what makes it more so is the fact that Wong met Valerie only hours earlier and doesn't really know her as a nemesis like he knows the Chans as. Just the knowledge of her being meaningful to Shendu suffices for him to use her as a way for retribution. [[spoiler:[[KarmicDeath It gets him immediately killed]].]]

Just the knowledge of her being meaningful to Shendu suffices for him to use her as a way for retribution. [[spoiler:[[KarmicDeath It gets him immediately killed]].]]

* The prototypical example might be the Christian bible's God. Among many other things, Exodus has him ordering the deaths of three thousand people for worshiping a golden calf.

Added DiffLines:

* The titular character of ''Manga/SamonTheSummoner'' is this and proud of it, he's made it his mission to corrupt Teshigawara by constantly harassing her with the demons he summons just because he finds her [[IncorruptiblePurePureness goody two shoes attitude]] annoying.

* A lot of villains in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' are doing things ForTheEvulz, but the most notable examples are Steely Dan and Dio Brando: the former takes advantage of holding the protagonist's grandfather hostage by treating him like a lowly servant, having him clean his shoes and build him a human bridge over a small gap. Dio Brando, on the other hand, is having fun with his Stand ability [[spoiler: to stop time]] by killing a stray cat and messing around with bystanders' food. Both of their karmas are built this way [[UnstoppableRage to piss Jotaro off]].
