This trope sounds very similar to the trope Mega Corp.. Should they be Incorporated?

Haha. Incorporated. Evil, Inc. is a company that is... well, devoted to evil. Doesn't have to be large, it can be (relatively) small. Their goals have to be sinister, that's the important thing. It'll usually be a Mega Corp., but not always. A Mega Corp. has to be huge, and doesn't necessarily have to be sinister in nature. They're probably portrayed as ruthless, cutthroat, and soulless, but their drive is usually just to make money. Persona 4 has a good example. Junes is considered a Mega Corp.. It's a huge department store that's pretty much putting the entire shopping district of the sleepy town out of business. However, it's not an Evil, Inc. since even though it's leading to negative effects for some, it's not doing so for evil means.
