Question: does this trope apply to any villain whose parents happen not to be married? Or does at least one of the villain's parents have to be a noble or other high-status individual? Because the various pages dealing with the trope are rather contradictory on that point.

Only villains who are evil because of their bastardy count. To be real textbook example, he should have Royal Blood, but it's more important that he is The Resenter.

Did you have a particular example in mind?

No, I was just confused about the different ways in which the trope is used.
