"Ahh, it feels so good to be so bad!"
: "Being undead is great! Why didn't I do this sooner?" Redcloak
: "I'm so glad your conversion to a life-draining mockery of all that is beautiful has proven to be such a barrel of laughs." Xykon
: "Me too!"
I'm alive at last,
And I'm full of joy!
It feels so good to be evil, it feels so good to be bad! The most agreeable feeling I've ever had! Oh, I never feel the least bit guilty, though I reckon I s'pose I should Instead I'm rotten right to the core, 'cause it feels so good!
—Lyrics to "It Feels So Good To Be Bad" from the musical Tumbleweeds
"This dictator business is hard work... but fun
I knew myself, at the first breath of this new life, to be more wicked, tenfold more wicked, sold a slave to my original evil; and the thought, at that moment, braced and delighted me like wine.
Do you understand, Kakarot? That's why I needed Babidi's magic. To awaken the evil in my heart. To set me free of these petty attachments. (

I think I just had an evilgasm.
It's the feeling of being alive! Filled with evil, but truly alive! It's the truth that cannot be denied! It's the feeling of being Edward Hyde!
"I'm sure you found Benny's demise pleasing. The destruction of an enemy. There are few things more satisfying."
And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need
"Was Milton trying to tell us that being bad is more fun than being good?"
Skyler, everything that I did, you have to understand- Skyler:
If I have to hear, one more time, that you did all of this for the family... Walter:
I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And I was really...I was alive.
"I like being bad. It makes me happy."
"There is days when I wanna give in,
But it's hard to be a saint
When you're full of sin,
Why would I ever think of going back
When it feels so fuckin' good to be bad?
—Lyrics of the song Villain from Theory of a Deadman
