Probably the rarest type of Sue, as Villains are generally given great powers and abilities to make their inevitable downfall more sweet. A true VillainSue will probably [[KarmaHoudini never have one]], however, and even if he does it may be via OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThemNow rather than any non-AssPull method. In some cases, Villain Sue can be justified, given that the villain was an EldritchAbomination and the plot revolved around a CosmicHorrorStory.

This character generally shows up as an author's wish fulfillment to be ''evil''. Alternatively, in {{fanfiction}}, it might show up because the author [[DracoInLeatherPants favors the villain]] and wants a vicarious relationship with them. It might be a consequence of EvilIsCool, taken to the logical extreme. Or, perhaps, the author just has a distaste for some (or all) of the protagonists and created the character to facilitate a HateFic, FixFic, or RevengeFic. Either way, the same author favoritism and plot bias are now working for the forces of evil. It may also come about as an attempt to create a MagnificentBastard or similar style of villain, only to go too far and become one of these.

But anyway, this character pretty much shows up as an author's wish fulfillment to just be ''evil''. Alternatively, in {{fanfiction}}, it might show up because the author [[DracoInLeatherPants favors the villain]] and wants a vicarious relationship with them. It might be a consequence of EvilIsCool, taken to the logical extreme.
