'''Warning''': If your somehow end up in a [[PostModernism Post-modern work]], [[NotSoHarmless expect sudden success]], but also expect to face lots of [[{{Deconstruction}} real-life consequences]] of actually leading a criminal organisation or villainous movement.

This doesn't mean you have to fail at ''every'' step of your plan, because it's a well known fact that YouCantThwartStageOne. You'll probably get to rob the bank or build the DoomsdayDevice, and you [[VillainExitStageLeft usually get to escape]] when it goes pear-shaped. But beyond that, you're pretty much screwed. Don't forget to shake your fist, [[WeWillMeetAgain swear you'll be back]] and [[NeverRecycleYourSchemes never re-use any of your old plans]]. It's all part of the {{supervillain}} flair.
