->''"What's with the Makeover of the Damned?"''
-->-- '''Xander re: Dark Willow''', ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''

Every villain worth his salting-the-Earth has to have ''style.'' Not just because EvilIsCool, but because otherwise those {{idiot hero}}es wouldn't be able to tell us apart from the [[RummageSaleReject horde of clowns]] and hangers-on that follow them everywhere.

This is especially critical for fledgling villains, one dark-fashion faux pas can haunt you for ''years,'' earning you nothing but ridicule from heroes, villains, and even {{Muggles}}!

Below are some suggestions to make your JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope more visually obvious to those pathetic heroes.

* DeathGlare -- Stop passers-by in their tracks with only a look? Sign me up!
* EvilCostumeSwitch -- An absolute must, the only reason not to do this is if you're TheMole (but a successfully completed assignment means you can ditch those hero duds).
* EvilMakesYouMonstrous -- When you stop being human thanks to your extreme evil.
* EvilMakesYouUgly -- Sadly EvilIsSexy isn't always the case.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow -- [[SevenDeadlySins Excess?]] What's that?
* GlowingEyesOfDoom -- Well, it beats using a night-light.
* GoodHairEvilHair -- Nothing says "Destroyer of Souls" like a fu-manchu mustache.
* GoodScarsEvilScars -- An evil scar goes a long way to striking fear into the hearts of do-gooders.
* MarkOfTheBeast-- Tats are hardcore, yo.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast -- Consider using one of the below names, works better if it's actually on your birth certificate (though [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed after burning your orphanage-home]], who's going to know?).
* OneWingedAngel -- A bit of a radical departure, pretty much voids going to name brand stores.
* PaintItBlack -- Although if you're lazy, you can let your empathic gear do the switch by itself.
* RedRightHand -- Sometimes the forces of good need it spelled out for them in bright neon letters. Make sure to kill two orphans with one stone and make your RedRightHand a source of power.
* VoiceOfTheLegion -- If you want to be heard as well as seen, using the Voice of The Legion gives a wonderful, earthquake-like quality to your voice.
* [[DracoInLeatherpants Leather Pants]] -- Always in style for the villain who wants to [[PopularityPower score among the fanbase]] in more ways than one.
