When a Big Bad\'s minions are defeated or fail him, said villain beleives that they did it on purpose.
Needs a Better Title, Needs More Examples This is a very specific form of Genre Blindness that occurs when a Big Bad has never heard of, (and thus fails to take into account) the law of Hanlon's Razor. This means the he/she is so paranoid and/or insane, that he believes that anyone who fails him is not incompetant but a deliberate traitor. In otherwords, he believes that his mooks actually can beat the hero, but that they chose not to. Villains will typically display symptoms of this after sending out mooks to kill/capture the hero, since they will innevitably get there asses handed to them by badass Hero. This usually lead to one or more mooks getting the You Have Failed Me treatment. Any Comic book or Reoccurring TV show villain that follows this trope gets extra Hypocrite points for executing mooks who fail to stop the hero who has continually kicked the villain's own ass countless times. The rarest form of this trope is basically Sanity Slippage. It occurs when the villain takes this trope Up to Eleven to the point where the villain becomes so demented that he even starts using Insane Troll Logic or Bat Deduction to justify executing a supposed "traitors". In some cases, the villain becomes so deranged that the villain will execute minions when they succeed in carrying out orders that have unintended consequences like a Genocide Backfire! This form of the trope is so satisfying and funny to watch it qualifies as a Villainous Breakdown! contrast with Properly Paranoid
