This troper isn't sure about the "don't have children" paragraphs. After all, someone have to able to become the next evil overlord in case of defeat.
Technically, evil lieutenants are logically supposed to fill the same role, but fiction always seems to cast them as the Quirky Miniboss Squad or The Dragon instead. Possibly because they want the Big Bad's defeat to mark the end of the conflict.
The Evil Overlord of the list presumably has the power, intelligence, and foresight to prevent his overthrow by any plucky heroes. As such, he can reasonably expect to rule for the entirety of his natural life. Given that this Evil Overlord seems to have some tremendous resources (befitting the title), who's to say that the Evil Overlord has no plans for a successor and instead is centering their plans around immortality and absolute control?
Maybe because he prefer leader to be chosen by merit rather than being limited to family member.
This list seems to assume two things: Infinite funds and not actually being evil by any definition. To put it simply, many entries on the list rely heavily on having enough spare cash to personally fund all sorts of niceties and luxuries for minions, hired help, heroes and the general public... These sorts of things are generally traits that preclude being an Evil Overlord of any sort. Even where the rules aren't actively suggesting doing the non-evil thing, they tend to err on the side of spending for the hell of it rather than prudence or practicality. And that one about investing in urban renewal... Why not just burn the ghetto down? ¬_¬
Why hasn't this list been published in paperback book format for the Evil Overlord on the go yet?
One word: smartphone
The rule about keeping medical units in the prison sectors to treat prisoners instead of letting them out to treat them. Wouldn't it be smarter to, instead of trying to help, they just shoot the guy? This way, if its a trick, he's dead, and if its not, I now have room in my prison for more prisoners, and its a warning to others that any possible escape attempts are faulty. Or better, don't keep prisoners, anyone crosses us, just shoot them.
Shooting the relative of a well-connected commoner who turned out to actually be sick might inspire more open rebellion than treating them, though.
10.Can somebody explain me why the evil overlord need to interrogate his victim inside the small hotel(the inner sanctum should have better sound security).For 44,why hired assassin is better than assassin doing it for fun?What happen if the assassin failed killing the hero and lie to the evil overlord?
