** From ''Trials and Tribulations'', there's [[spoiler: Dahlia Hawthorne, who committed a string of terrible murders. Most of her murders were designed to cover her own guilt, but she executes them in the cruelest way possible. For example, her first crime - in an attempt to get back at her father - was a staged kidnapping in which she was supposed to receive a giant uncut diamond as a ransom. Once she gets the diamond, she fakes her own death and gets her boyfriend - who ''assisted with the kidnapping plot'' - convicted of her murder. Why? It's never even stated that she wanted the diamond for herself. She's just crazy.]]
** And from ''Justice for All'' we've got [[spoiler: Matt Engarde. Sure, he's got a motive for paying an assassin to kill Juan Corrida, but he pulls a ForTheEvulz when he asks Phoenix to feed his cat. Why? Because he's plotted to abduct Maya Fey and is holding her hostage in his wine cellar, and the assassin he paid is there guarding Maya and posing as Matt's butler. He's sending Phoenix to his house essentially just to enjoy the fact that Phoenix can't solve his case or escape his blackmail plot even when the killer (and Maya) are literally right in front of him.]]

On RPG.net, threads involving acts of unmotivated malice, especially when the malice is counterproductive or self-destructive, are sometimes tagged "Pleasing to the Ebon Dragon."

On RPG.net, threads involving acts of unmotivated malice, especially when the malice is counterproductive or self-destructive, are sometimes tagged "Pleasing to the Ebon Dragon."" Amusingly enough, one thread with this tag actually had a poster using the handle "The Ebon Dragon" get permabanned, which hilariously enough is something the in-setting Ebon Dragon would have considered a great success.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'s villain Fatalist started a twisted, sick game of emotional manipulation in ''Comicbook/ManyHappyReturns'' that messed with God's Plan and could have destroyed the whole multiverse… just because he could.

* The Wrestling/BigBossMan practically sprinted past the MoralEventHorizon for no reason whatsoever on multiple occasions, other than that he enjoyed it. This included everything from breaking the wrist of a much smaller woman while threatening to use a nightstick to club her (the woman was more than 200 pounds lighter than he was and had no chance to defend herself); tormenting another wrestler after his father's death; and chopping up the carcass of a dog, using its meat as the main ingredient of chili and then feeding the chili to the deceased dog's master, only telling him afterward what he had just eaten.

** Blackblood from ''ComicBook/ABCWarriors'' ran a weapon shop where you didn't pay with money or goods, but with videotapes of the weapons being used on orphanages and such.

Most villains have logical motivations for (morally) reprehensible actions and intentions. {{Ambition|IsEvil}}, [[KnightTemplar zeal]], {{greed}}, {{pride}}, [[DrivenByEnvy envy]], {{lust}}, [[DirtyCoward fear]], {{love|MakesYouEvil}}, [[ThePowerOfHate hatred]], [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain bigotry]], {{revenge}}, [[PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery misery]], [[TheResenter resentment]], [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds anguish]], [[MisanthropeSupreme misanthropy]], [[WellIntentionedExtremist good intentions]], [[DarkAndTroubledPast a troubled]] [[FreudianExcuse childhood]], [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans the desire for utopia]], [[VisionaryVillain and other warped "ideals"]] can all drive people to evil in ways that we understand and may be familiar with. If a villain's motivations can just be understood, they can [[KirkSummation be reasoned with]] -- sometimes.

Compare MadeOfEvil, which is a character which also does evil for the sake of it, but do so because they are actually an AnthropomorphicPersonification of evil. A villain who is self-aware enough to ''boast'' that their acts are just for the sake of evil are a CardCarryingVillain. See also DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans, when a character strives to create a perpetual dystopic world simply for the sake of suffering.
