# If the heroes send someone utterly ridiculous but that is capable of defeating any powerful villain ''because'' of it, i will send my most pathetic, clumsy minion against him. After all, if the RuleOfFunny is what allows such a being to come on the top, nothing is fairer than to exploit the ridiculousness of the situation and gave him a taste of his own medicine, pitching him against someone that's more silly than he is, leading to his defeat since it's '''funny''' that way!

# If I serve [[BiggerBad a God]] in a realm with multiple Gods and multiple alignments, my efforts will go towards advancing my Lord's plans and goals. [[VideoGame/RuneScape If this means aiding the other Gods with their insignificant problems, but an outcome from it could benefit my own interests, I will help them.]] Doubly so if the aid undermines another Gods agenda.

# If the heroes command the power of the natural elements, I will devise an armor [[NoSell immune or resistant to those elements]] or be capable of absorbing the power for my own use.

# While [[ZergRush launching all my forces at a 'defenseless' planet]] can be an effective means of conquering it, it can leave the inhabitants resorting to more [[GodzillaThreshold '''drastic''']] measures. Hence, if I am expanding my empire and come across a new inhabited planet, I will deploy small scale skirmishes to test the local defences, while simultaneously learning about the planet's culture and philosophies. I will also ensure that my navy is outfitted with defenses against potential weapons the natives may use against me.

# [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime I will not pull the plug on a group of genetically-engineered super-soldiers]] just because the first one turned out [[ItCanThink smarter]] [[GoneHorriblyRight than I expected]], especially if it means killing a batch that's already half-finished. The prototype likely won't appereciate me scrapping his bretheren just because I got cold feet, will inevitably find out (some idiot always talks), and could express his displeasure in some VERY counterproductive ways.]]

# However, if I meet TheHero in a place where neither of us can harm the other, [[TheLegendOfKorra e.g. the Spirit Realm]], I will covertly tell my minions to go to their location and capture their physical body, while I distract them by talking about my beliefs/ how my day is going/ my TragicBackstory.
