Otherwise, this can be just as easily used in rather the opposite manner, to show that indeed, this villain certainly ''is'' just that evil. To be hanged is often seen as '''''the. most. justice-filled way to die.''''' While [[OffWithHisHead beheading]] is often used to show that the ''executioner'' is pretty much [[ForTheEvulz sadistically]] [[DrunkWithPower evil]]. But with a nice and proper ''hanging'', it's the ''hangee'' that gets the [[DramaticSpotlight Spotlight]] of [[ObviouslyEvil Evil]]. Thusly, it proves beyond a doubt that this villain got ''exactly'' what he deserved.
