* ''Music/KidsPraise'': Risky Rat's motivations seem to decay into this over time; while he still describes himself as a ConMan in later albums, he seems to want to keep kids from knowing or praising God...simply ''because''.

* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' has the Crassus family. It's a horrible, horrible example to retype here, so just check it out on their section on the Requiem article.

to:

* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' In ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'', one of the most deranged things introduced in the game is a ghoul family called the Crassus. Unlike most ghoul families, these guys are pretty awesome. They're a 6,000 member family with tons of cash, connections, fame, and Kindred disciplines. They're called the Caesars, and sometimes the royalty of America. They have their hand in everything from insurance to Mob wars. But there's a catch: see, this family was created when a Ventrue dude named Lysander agreed to paying a Roman gambler's debt, but in return everyone in his family is now a toy for Invictus members. Only a few individuals in the family know this. And by "toy," we mean the Invictus can beat and rape the hell out of them whenever they want to vent out some of their frustration (or the lulz), only to return the poor Crassus member to their normal life as if nothing has happened. [[RefugeInAudacity The Crassus are noted for being incredibly resistant to the thought of anything supernatural, even their own powers, so they always always rationalize this regular degradation as some "evil uncle paying a visit."]] The fluff actually encourages this behavior: the Crassus family. It's a horrible, horrible example are consistently portrayed as [[RichBitch vain and snot-nosed rich kids]] that [[BreakTheHaughty "need to retype here, so just check be taken down a peg or three"!]] But wait, it out on gets better! All Crassus ghouls can have their section on choice of either the Requiem article.Ventrue or Daeva weakness. Clearly, being part of a rich family sucks in this world.
** The Crassus estate actually has an insane asylum for all their family members who were unable to use their money and power to fix themselves up from all the rapes. Their estate has a wing with a coterie of Invictus in it, as well... This family is doomed.
*** They have created ''two more'' ghoul families specifically for ''the Crassus'' to piss on? It just never ends. One family is perpetual butlers with undeveloped vocal cords, who are systematically killed the second they mention being self-aware of their condition, and the other is a purpose-bred family of pit fighters knowing no life outside the arena.
** Or, a Crassus can spend his Staff merit on other Crassus ghouls. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Think about that for a second.]]
** Then we have the Strix, who being TheUnfettered now, primarily prosecute vampires for this reason.
*** A Strix in the opening of the Strix chapter of ''Wicked Dead'' speaks of his decaying possessions, and how he/she doesn't know who he really is anymore, or why he does all these terrible things. "...and I wouldn't have it any other way."

What keeps a villain going in the name of The Evulz (and The Evulz alone) is not [[VillainousValour strength of character]], however, but rather a fundamental ''lack'' of personality. The quintessential For the Evulz villain's [[VillainousValour suicidal bravery]] actually stems from their non-existent sense of self (beyond 'I love doing and being evil for no reason') and, by extension, lack of a self-preservation instinct. They probably don't actively [[DeathSeeker want to die]] or be tortured, but they really don't (and physchologically can't) care about it either.

* Carl from ''WebVideo/LlamasWithHats''. A few of his victims did piss him off in some way, but usually he just kills people for the sake of killing people. Or so it seems, anyway. The latter half of the series seems to suggest that he's actually acting to get Paul's attention.

A non-comedic character whose personality is ''defined'' by this trope can be a CompleteMonster, the Complete Monster being defined as, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin completely monstrous]] -- needing no justifications for doing evil and having no humanising or sympathetic elements (e.g., [[WellIntentionedExtremist good intent]] or [[AntiVillain self-doubt]]) whatsoever. Note, however, that the reverse is not true -- the Monster, after all, is a character defined by their boundless heinousness, not by having reasonless evil as their only possible motivation. Other villainous personality types associated with For The Evulz include the PsychoForHire (who is very likely to be AxCrazy), the StrawNihilist, TheSociopath, and variants of the ChaoticEvil character alignment.
