Redditch is dead! And I killed him! Now it is DePrayve's turn to live... to exult in the richness of evil!
I am lord of evil, little man — forever and always!

Y'see, deep down, in my most secret heart of hearts, I'm still a totally depraved sonuvabitch whose main goal in life is to watch you die. Slowly and painfully. Just like your kid.
What do we care about nice?
What do we care about sweet?
All that we care about's vice
Eating the mice,
Cheating the dice,
Which is neat,
We've got no time for taste.
Who's got the time to waste?
We've got a better plan
To be as mean as we can!
We'll steal your pen
Then sneer at you,
Leer at you
And really we
ought to be
Oh, I love it when I'm nasty!
Behold, The Underminer! I am always beneath you, but nothing
is beneath me
! I hereby declare war on peace and happiness!
Hail to the black and the blue
Sneaky and crooked through and through
Down with the good guys, up with the boss
Under the sign of the triple cross
Hail hail hail
Good morning, my golden retrievers! What kind of havoc shall the Carver Media Group create in the world today?
Koopa?! But you just said you were— Pres. Koopa
"One evil, egg-sucking son of a snake." Did I lie?
Let me tell you about a guy I know, Jack. Bad seed. Mean. Coward. Hurts people. Joker: I like him already.
: You know who I am, Mr. Worley? Clifford Worley
I give up. Who are you? Coccotti
: I'm the Anti-Christ. You got me in a vendetta kind of mood. You tell the angels in heaven you never seen evil so singularly personified as you did in the face of the man who killed you.
Say goodnight to the bad guy!
You saved my life, and in return, I'll spare yours—for now. Vito Cornelius
: You're a monster, Zorg. Zorg
: I know.
God, I love being a bad guy.
Kermit the Frog:
Why are you doing this? Nicky Holiday:
Because I'm a villain, pure and simple.
I've seen it before with guys like you... you cannot carry that much contempt without it becoming malignant, until you're gonna be all alone in a room full of shadows
, and all you're gonna have is the memories of all those people's lives you have destroyed. Finch:
That's a good story, Wendall. But it's just further proof of why you can't beat me. Because you may be right, but the thing of it is, I don't give a shit. What's more, I never have.
What do you want
from us?! We're evil! EVIL!!
Of course I am a thug. You
are a thug. What is the Emperor, if not another thug? Thugs win
: That's my radio! Spike
: And you're—what? Shocked and disappointed? I'm evil.
Distrusting me was the wisest thing you've done since you climbed off your horse.
"I do not serve things that are evil. I am evil."
I'm just a gangsta, I suppose.
I am not
a good person. I have never been
a good person.

3-Mar-2009, making the understatement of the century.
I was the most diabolical man in the history of this business. I've got a mind that just... works as a villain. True villains can't pretend to be anything else, they are what they are.
I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in his grace. In this, though, I cannot be said to be a flattering honest man; it must not be denied but I am a plain-dealing villain. If I had my mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and seek not to alter me.
I think Hitler was a SWELL GUY!
The pendant's burning tells me that my heart is evil...That's good to know.
Evil is actually in my job description.
My wicked intellect will lead us to victory.
We have no need for illusions or euphemisms between us, Troper
. There are those who fight consistently for the side of right, and they are heroes. And then there are those like us, who know how to turn the powers of the world to our advantage without care for the cost to others, and we are called villains. Personally, I would rather be the latter any day.
Ware ga akuma da! (I am the
Look at me! I am sublime! I AM THE TRUE FACE OF EVIL!!!
villains don't think
they're evil. They think they're heroes. Not me! I'm reclaiming it! EVIL WIZARD! I'm rotten to the bone and I don't care who knows it!
I stand and look at myself in the mirror, penis in hand and my reflection grins at me and his mouth is full of the sulphur mustards. "Vain fool", he sneers, "Are you really so very different? Do you genuinely believe your works of evil are any greater than the rest of them? You are simply a weak man, a product of his age, the same as any other. This is Empire, cretin, this is the killing idiocy, the natural result of this social Darwinism. If you are evil, then this world is evil. You just let the blood run in the street rather than hiding it in the poorhouse. You hold the blade and slide it home yourself, you do not pay a man to do this for you where you cannot see it. If you are evil, at least yours is an honest evil and that alone makes you Ubermensch". And thus I wash my hands and take to bed.
I'm disappointed by Bowser just being the straight villain again, because done well he can be an interesting character study! There's something intriguing about somebody who self-identifies as the bad guy. Society calls him evil, but he wears
their label! He reclaims it!
And that is why they will never get him down! If the options are good or evil, then Bowser will take "evil", because he has seen what passes for good: An unelected ditz living in obscene decadence and bestowing privileges on a pair of mustachioed foreigners who both might be giving her one."''
Then - you're not angry? Agatha:
Nah. You did good. Castle:
"Good." ... Hrm. Perhaps ... you could phrase it some other way?
Say goodbye to your planet, Kakarot! Goku:
Well that's not very nice! Vegeta:
Of course not! I'm f*** ing evil

Hey Kakarot, what's the opposite of Christopher Walken
CHRISTOPHER REEVE! * crushes Goku's legs* Goku:
* Screams in pain* ... That was in terrible taste! Vegeta: Don't care! Evil!
I hate to criticize the new Dick Tracy
team, who I think do a great job in terms of art and tone, and are clearly huge fans of the Dick Tracy
mythos; however, much of their early work has consisted of endless callbacks to what I assume are beloved characters from the past, making the whole thing kind of baffling to the uninitiated
. At least I feel confident in guessing that this so-called 'Mr. Crime' is a criminal of some sort.
The Daleks' plan in this episode is easily one of the most insane in the series' long and storied history. They want to, and I want to stress here that I am not making this up or exaggerating at all, remove the Earth's magnetic core so they can install an engine and drive the planet around as a spaceship... A sort of Porsche for the mid-life crisis of a Dalek. I picture Daleks pulling along upside another planet and saying 'Hey Babe. I drive a planet.
But there's actually something strangely brilliant about the arbitrariness of this plot. Because it makes it clear that the plot doesn't matter
. The plot is literally nothing more than an excuse to bring the Daleks around again. The Daleks don't need a good reason to invade a planet or be evil. They're just Daleks. They're the bad guys. They are, at this point, designed to be the things that, when they show up, you go 'Oh shit, it's the Daleks!
A man accused of the rape and murder of a 12 year old girl is exactly the sort of concept that no other science fiction show would touch and Torchwood
seems to revel in the dirtiness of. Even though it lacks subtlety, that isn’t what I have a problem with it, it’s the hyperbolic statement ‘She should have run faster.’ Its not only really distasteful but means the character is hard to believe before we even meet him.... In the grand scheme of things I am not certain I understand the purpose of Oswald Danes with regards to the series because he becomes nothing more than the punch bag that everybody can take their anger out on
in the last handful of episodes.
that this is how Commissioner Gordon phrases it. Not “We have multiple murders from a massive armored bodybuilder,”
but “there’s a new villain.”
I’m just surprised he didn’t call him an arch-criminal. David
: Arch-criminal is, I think, actually more sensical than villain. The word “villain” basically completely exposes the narrative nature of this. Life doesn’t have villains, stories do. He might as well have just gone “Yo, Bats, the movie’s starting.”
An arch-criminal is at least something that could exist in real life. It’s not like they call Obama after terrorist attacks and go “yo, the United States has a new villain!” Chris
: Wait ’til Freeze tells his goons to “kill the heroes.”
"Grab the gem!" Freeze screams to his Eskimo henchmen. "Kill the heroes!" (You know, I haven't heard a bad guy actually refer to his opponents as "heroes" since I watched episodes of The
"After Spencer shoves a grenade in Groeder's mouth and kicks him off his giant robot spider-thing, he goes on find Joe in a mech with a bunch of angel wings (drop the fucking Safer Sephiroth envy, people) where Joe reveals he not only was he the leader of Bio Reign, but he also had a hand in creating bionics, and it was his idea to make bionics the way they were: requiring somebody close to the person receiving the bionic part have their brain cut out and put into the bionic part. And he kidnapped Emily, and used her to make Spencer’s arm. And shortly after this announcement he smashes that female bionic from that obviously cut boss battle earlier in the game. And then he reveals he killed Spencer’s dog, Muffins, just because he was bored. And he once tore the "Do Not Remove" tag off a sofa. And his first instinct when eating a chocolate bunny is to bite its face off. The point they’re trying to make is Super Joe is EEEVIL, dammit!"
"This may or may not be a major plot spoiler, but your megacorporation employer is actually up to no good. In fact, you'll know it long before your character does. One clue is that the corporation's logo appears to be a big, evil-looking winged skull. The covertly sinister corporation has also plastered the entire city with totalitarian propaganda, such as threatening billboards that simply read, "Power and Control." In keeping with the game's theme of not making much sense, the corporation has also stamped lots of things with the nonsensical slogan, "We Are the Sun of Your New Life." It's only vaguely threatening, but it is printed in a scary authoritarian font. And in a shocking turn of events, the corporation is called "The Corporation," and it's being opposed by a resistance movement that calls itself, of all things, "the resistance."
I don't mean to be mean all the time. I just am.
One of the nice things about being evil is, you get to lie a lot.
And then there was the time I restructured the DNA of our class's pet hamster; turned it into a tapeworm; that was ESPECIALLY evil. Draw that next!
Think nasty, think nasty, think nasty!
And you, Magmion, you did an excellent job. Magmion:
My heart is filled with joy at your praise, Master! Obscurio:
Heart, you say? Do not forget, we don't
have a heart!
: Why are you doing this? Drax
: Because I'm evil. Always have been, always will be.
My own mother thought I was a monster. [Beat]
She was right of course. But it still hurt.
