A system used to classify [[AntiVillain Anti Villains]] and their likelihood to morph into classical {{Villains}}.

'''Type I''': A [[NobleDemon restrained]] villain, who [[EvenEvilHasStandards has a set of standards that they would not cross]]. Alternatively, villainy is [[PunchClockVillain just a job for them]].\\
'''Type II''': A [[TheWoobie woobie]] villain, who does not want to be evil, but circumstances make them out to be. Tends to garner sympathy.\\
'''Type III''': A [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned]] villain, who may believe in good goals, but use whatever means they can to achieve them.\\
'''Type IV''': A [[DesignatedVillain villain in name only]], lacking any genuinely villainous traits, or simply called a villain for opposing the protagonist. Frequently overlaps with HeroAntagonist.\\
