* [[Characters/GLRedLanternCorps Atrocitus]] comes to Earth looking for the other Lantern Corps entities in ''ComicBook/BrightestDay'' and brings only one fellow Red Lantern with him: a blue house cat named Dex-Starr, who become [[CatsAreMean the most sadistic]] of the entire Red Corp. Then, in Green Lantern #55, we learn Dex-Starr's origin, [[TearJerker cue waterworks.]]. Atrocitus seems to be particularly fond of Dex-Starr, even personally stepping in to rescue him, tending to his wounds and referring to him as a "good kitty".

* In the ''{{Malloreon}}'' saga by David Eddings, Kal Zakath has a cat that serves more as an opportunity for quiet humor than a villainous icon; the (seemingly) ruthless and cold-hearted emperor of all Mallorea frequently attempts to pawn off newborn kittens to heads of state, the main characters, and whoever else seems likely to claim a cat. Of course, the frequent [[PetTheDog Pet the "Dog"]] moments only foreshadowed Kal Zakath's eventual HeelFaceTurn from not-quite-villain antagonist to ally of Belgarion. Even if he did make one of his primary reasons for turning face. "You know, Garion, I've just realized that you're ''functionally omnipotent''. So how's about I just give up and make peace before you eventually kill me?"

In an [[EvilCounterpart evil contrast]] to how much HeroesLoveDogs, [[DiabolicalMastermind Diabolical Masterminds]] are cat people. If they [[TheFaceless don't have a face]], they will usually have a pet cat, usually some shade of white, sitting on their desk or in their lap, that they stroke as they describe their EvilPlan.

Why do bad guys like cats? Maybe because CatsAreMean -- [[PredatorsAreMean they kill birds and mice, just so they can offer you the corpse]]. Cats are lap-sized and perfect to pet while scheming. Or maybe it's because CatsAreSuperior and believe they are entitled to be worshipped and revered by humans, or deserve to TakeOverTheWorld themselves. Dogs are faithful and loyal, but cats are fickle with a superiority complex. Villains and cats just fit. It's the perfect accessory for a CardCarryingVillain.

In real life, this is almost entirely untrue. Famous cat ''haters'' throughout history have included Caligula, Nero, Napoleon, Hitler, and Stalin. Oddly, [[PetTheDog all of the above were fond of dogs]], perhaps because of their [[YesMan obedient, worshipful nature]]. (Alternately, for a psychopath terrified of assassination, a [[RightHandAttackDog German Shepherd]] is a little more comforting than a tabby.)
