Should there be a Selfish Evil? Isn't Evil as commonly defined inherently selfish?

I'll admit that I don't quite understand it completely myself but I think the difference between Evil and Selfish Evil is that sometimes Evil can work with each other (Lawful/Neutral Evil) while Selfish Evil is out for themselves exclusively. Or something to that effect.

Doesn't the neutral evil trope say that any character that is inherently selfish is defacto Neutral Evil?

Yeah, whilst not all evil characters are selfish, the majority of them certainly are. The willingless to go to any lengths for your own gain is pretty much the definition of evil.

This concept is dealt with more elegantly via traditional sling meant systems. It's a YMMV category, but a lot of the examples imply a mistaken notion of what those categories mean.
