To infect the world with devastation,
To blight all peoples in every nation,
To denounce the goodness of truth and love,
To extend our wrath to the stars above
Butch and Cassidy's Team Rocket entrance speech, Pokémon

You are now official Decepticon warriors. Go out there and be as violent as you can be!

My! Yes. That would actually be very simple. I want your powers as Spirit to turn the ways of the world upside down....In order to topple the restraints of this world. But your existence in this world is stable. I wonder what I have to do to make you despair?
Sir Isaac Ray Peram Westcott, Date A Live

You know, Guile, evil is a good career choice. It has a lot to offer.

Goku: I raised him to know the difference between good and evil! Unlike some people.
Turles: Hmph. I know the difference. I just don't care.

Hey Tetsu. Have you ever thought about 'evil'? In the world these days... The idea that all people all inherently good gets tossed a lot. The law represents that. 'There's no such a thing as a person who was born evil', 'From the point of view of the person committing the crime, they had a reason for it'... Like that. You've probably seen in in mangas and movies, haven't you? All those final bosses that seemed like 'he was actually a good guy', 'he just did evil things for the sake of his friends' or 'he did evil things to overcome his own personal trauma'. Even if they are defeated... That kind of half-assed evil can never be clear-cut. Anyway, it has gotten to be the generally accepted opinion that nobody in this world is pure "evil".

They're wrong. It exists. 'Evil'.

Not impure evil like necessary evil or resultant evil or anything. 'Absolute Evil'. That person watched the electronic drug that made even my questionable soul waver. While grinning. Wearing an expression like... 'I wonder what element of this was leading people astray?'. All while sitting on a favourite piece of furniture he recently got. Just being with him... Fills me with the urge to throw up. And it gets that I'm disgusted with even alive... Even then, this 'evil' is charismatic enough that I can't get away from it. If you were doing a good job..., I figured I'd take you to him but I guess I've been disappointing.[...] Hihihi, How considerate, You'll understand someday... No, you'll... probably never understand him. Sorry to bother you Tetsu. Well... Have a peaceful life. [sets Tetsu's garage on fire.]
Zenjiro Kasai sums his boss Sicks perfectly, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro.

    Comic Books

Dracula, The Tomb of Dracula

The President: You've got to understand, I didn't get involved in this because I'm some sort of cackling super-villain who gets off on hurting people or anything.
Seth: Hell, I did.
Seth Angus Billy Cletus Bubba Jamie Clement Callum Cowie, The Authority

I am not the hero in my own story. I am the bad guy. I have no end in mind that justifies my means. There are no skeletons in my closet, no abusive childhood or inciting misery that might expiate my vile behavior. Nor am I insane. I know the difference between good and evil. And I am fully capable of empathizing with the pain, emotional or physical, of others. No sociopath, I. Rather, I simply prefer bad over good. Wrong over right. Dirty over clean. Sick over healthy. Untrue over true.
Contagion, Wolverine: The Best There Is

Y'see, deep down, in my most secret heart of hearts, I'm still a totally depraved sonuvabitch whose main goal in life is to watch you die. Slowly and painfully. Just like your kid.
Black Manta, Aquaman

What can I say? I'm a bad guy. I do bad things. It's my job. And it beats working retail.
The Big Boss (Lynch), Gen¹³ — Grunge: The Movie

"I am the new, undisputed, absolute crime lord of Gotham City. I am everything this city deserves — and more. I am the darkness that fills the heart of every living soul in this sordid little town... including the blackest, most twisted soul of all... I think you know who I'm talking about."
Black Mask, Batgirl (2000)

"There's a word for what I am, but nobody uses it anymore. No one wants to see the simple truth. If they did, they'd kill people like me as soon as we revealed ourselves. But they don't. They close their eyes and blather about psychology and say that nobody is truly evil. That's why I've won. That's why I always win."
Ava Lord, Sin City, "A Dame to Kill For"

    Fan Fiction 
Arina: "You filthy creature! How could you do such an awful thing to someone as pure as her?!"
Lord Komatsu: "Because I'm evil. Duh."

"You’re evil." Twilight shot.
"That I am." Nightmare conceded with a lopsided smile. "Not everypony has it within their heart to rip a pony in half, or eat the bones of their enemies… But this is only a more honest kind of evil. Tell me what you think evil is."

I once thought that the greatest evil in this world was done in the name of the greater good. I was wrong. Terribly wrong. There is evil in this world which knows itself for evil, and hates the good with all its strength. All fair things does it desire to destroy.

Captain Action: Very soon, we'll have to go back to our time with Krellik. But perhaps, sometime, we can meet again. Right now, our job is still to find and neutralize Dr. Evil.

Action Boy: He's my grandfather.
Captain Marvel: Oh.

    Film — Animated 
What do we care about nice?
What do we care about sweet?
All that we care about's vice
And deceit,
Eating the mice,
Cheating the dice,
Which is neat,
We've got no time for taste.
Who's got the time to waste?
We've got a better plan
To be as mean as we can!
The Singing Cat Gang's Villain Song, "What Do We Care", from Tom and Jerry: The Movie

Oh, I love it when I'm nasty!
Professor Ratigan, The Great Mouse Detective

"What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, 'That's the bad guy.' So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!"
Tony Montana, Scarface (1983)

I like people thinking I'm an asshole. Being an asshole is my life's vocation; I'm a goddamned asshole professional. When other people act like assholes, they're doing it on their own time, but me, it's my job.
The Pollisand, Ascending

We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing.
O'Brien, 1984.

“You’re a monster, aren’t you?” I spoke softly into the night, looking at him from the corner of my eye.
He smiled. “The very worst kind,” he replied.
—The Black Knight and Catherine Foundling's first encounter - A Practical Guide To Evil Book 1, Chapter 1: Knife.

You figure that out all by yourself? The god of evil is evil?

Evil, be thou my good.

O'Brien: You understand well enough how the Party maintains itself in power. Now tell me why we cling to power. What is our motive? Why should we want power?
Winston: You are ruling over us for our own good. You believe that human beings are not fit to govern themselves, and therefore—
(O'Brien gives Winston an eletric shock for his answer)
O'Brien: That was stupid, Winston, stupid! You should know better than to say a thing like that. Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power.

It sounds pretentious. After all, I am not a flesh-devouring ghoul, hiding behind a human mask until it is time to gorge. I’m no vampire, draining the blood or soul from my victim- no ogre, no demon, no cursed beast from the spirit world dwelling amid the unsuspecting sheep of humanity. I’m not even possessed of the mystic abilities of a mortal wizard.
But they will never be what I am. One and all, those beings were born to be what they are.
I made a choice.
— ”Gentleman” Johnny Marcone, Even Hand

I am "the world's worst evil god" after all.

"No-one becomes like she is without building walls inside their head," [Granny] said. "I've just knocked them down. Every scream. Every plea. Every pang of guilt. Every twinge of conscience. All at once. There's a little trick to it."
[…] Granny smiled terribly. "Everyone wants to know their true self. Now, she does."
A noise like a gas leak escaped from the duchess's lips. Her head jerked back suddenly. She opened her eyes, blinked, and focused on Granny. Sheer hatred suffused her features.
"Guards!" she said. "I told you to take them!"
Granny's jaw sagged. "What?" she said. "But — but I showed you your true self…"
"I'm supposed to be upset by that, am I?" As the soldiers sheepishly grabbed Granny's arms the duchess pressed her face close to Granny's, her tremendous eyebrows a V of triumphant hatred. "I'm supposed to grovel on the floor, is that it? Well, old woman, I've seen exactly what I am, do you understand, and I'm proud of it! I'd do it all again, only hotter and longer! I enjoyed it, and I did it because I wanted to!"
She thumped the vast expanse of her chest.
"You gawping idiots!" she said. "You're so weak. You really think that people are basically decent underneath, don't you?"

Patience is not one of my virtues. Well, actually, I don't have any virtues, but if I did, I'm sure patience wouldn't be one of them.
Crowley, Supernatural, "Taxi Driver"

The Doctor: But you use your powers for evil!

You know, I always felt this place was missing a real villain. Hence my humble contribution.
The Man in Black, Westworld, "Contrapasso"

Violet: First of all, first impressions are often wrong.
Count Olaf: Very true. For example, your first impression of me may be that I am a terrible person. But in time, Baudelaires, I hope you'll come to haven't the faintest idea.
A Series of Unfortunate Events (2017), "The Bad Beginning: Part One"

Brea: You're all monsters!
You know, some experts say that sick people, people like me, you know, that ultimately we want to be caught. That the mistakes we make are intentional. Or that we stray from some particular course of action because we like the risk. Those experts are morons. I have no intention of being caught.
John Curtis/The DC rapist, CSI: NY

I use my powers for evil
I use them any way I want

I will not apologize
You're mine for the taking
I'm making a career of evil
Blue Öyster Cult, "Career Of Evil"

I do it all because I'm evil,
and I do it all for free,
your tears are all the pay I'll ever need.
Voltaire, "When You're Evil"

If all the world's a stage
Then I shall play my part
You may say it's cliché
But I say it's an art

    Professional Wrestling 
Ring of Honor, a place where respect, and tradition, are applauded. Where handshakes and praise are common found. But what ever happened to the men devoted to wickedness? Well fear no more, for this may be the place where the heroes are made, make room for the one true villain.

I am not a good person. I have never been a good person.
Triple H, WWE Raw 3-Mar-2009, making the understatement of the century.

I was the most diabolical man in the history of this business. I've got a mind that just... works as a villain. True villains can't pretend to be anything else, they are what they are.

    Tabletop Games 
Often, villains are fond of claiming that they are misquoted, or misunderstood, or really oppressed heroes whose names have been unjustly tarred by vengeful enemies. Not so the Nephandi: they know what they are and they accept it, with no mamby-pamby moralizing or angst-ridden bemoaning of the fact. After all, having your Avatar ripped inside out tends to remove the ambiguity from your worldview.
Mage: The Ascension - The Book of Madness

Some Nosferatu take the Victorian mindset to heart, becoming embodiments of the blackest evils they so visibly represent. These Nosferatu are true horrors, inflicting pain and misery for the vicarious thrill it gives them, and cackling whenever new fiendishness comes their way. These Sewer Rats are usually the bullies and terrors of their nests, victimizing even other Nosferatu when a lack of other targets presents itself. Thankfully, these Nosferatu rarely accumulate influence of any standing value or length, and are soon undone by the weight of the own wickedness. Ultimately, they destroy themselves - or force others to bring them down, for if they haven't fallen to the Beast soon after deciding to become such malicious creatures, few of their fellow Nosferatu have any qualms about convincing other Kindred that it's only a matter of time until they do, and it's in everyone's best interests to get rid of them now.

If a man dedicates his life to good deeds and the welfare of others, he will die unthanked and unremembered. If he exercises his genius bringing misery and death to billions, his name will echo down through the millennia for a hundred lifetimes. Infamy is always more preferable to ignominy.
Fabius Bile, Warhammer 40,000: Champions Of Chaos

And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover,
To entertain these fair well-spoken days,
I am determined to prove a villain
And hate the idle pleasures of these days.
Gloucester, Richard III, I.i

My wicked intellect will lead us to victory.
Chaos Sorcerer, Dawn of War

We have no need for illusions or euphemisms between us, Troper. There are those who fight consistently for the side of right, and they are heroes. And then there are those like us, who know how to turn the powers of the world to our advantage without care for the cost to others, and we are called villains. Personally, I would rather be the latter any day.
Mr. Bocor, City of Villains

We just love being mean!
The Koopalings, Super Mario Bros. 3

Ware ga akuma da! (I am the devil!)

Look at me! I am sublime! I AM THE TRUE FACE OF EVIL!!!
Luca Blight, Suikoden II

Most villains don't think they're evil. They think they're heroes. Not me. I'm reclaiming it: EVIL WIZARD! I'm rotten to the bone, and I don't care who knows it!
Merasmus the Magician, Team Fortress 2: Scream Fortress 2014

So tell me, heretic, is this God of yours a compassionate one? I doubt even He has room in His divine heart for such an unusually talented sinner as me.

"I'm different, you see. From the ancients who clung to dear life. And from you. So don't bother trying to reason with me. You will find I have no reason. Or creed. Or any such tripe. I just want to destroy the world. But please do try to resist with all your might. It will add to my enjoyment."

Freiza: Word of advice: you want out of here? Play nice, work off your time, and convince them you're not a total piece of shit.
Cell: Oh really? Well if that simple, then why the here are you still here?
Frieza: Well you see "Perfect" Cell - (grabs Cell by throat with his tail and begins choking him) I know who I fucking am. I'm a child-killing, people enslaving, galactic tyrant. And I'd rather die a million more times before I ever pretend otherwise.

Vect... You know, I still do not understand you. [...] I can appreciate, to an extent, that you MUST indulge in malefic red room nonsense to live, but... Must you show such... repulsive glee in doing it?

The Star Child: Look, I get that you Dark Eldar will literally die and get swallowed by Slaanesh if you don't act the scoundrel. That has evidently been a problem for everyone for a few millennia now.

As a reward for your honesty there, I'll let you in on a little evil secret. What I said up there to Dorukan about overwhelming force? That's only part of Colonel Xykon's secret recipe for winning. It's not just about raw power, it's also about how far you're willing to debase yourself before feeling bad. And me? I ripped off my own living flesh so that I wouldn't have to admit weakness. You're strictly little league compared to that. That right there? That's the difference between bonafide true Evil with a capital E and your whiny "evil, but for a good cause" crap.

"After Spencer shoves a grenade in Groeder's mouth and kicks him off his giant robot spider-thing, he goes on find Joe in a mech with a bunch of angel wings (drop the fucking Safer Sephiroth envy, people) where Joe reveals he not only was he the leader of BioReign, but he also had a hand in creating bionics, and it was his idea to make bionics the way they were: requiring somebody close to the person receiving the bionic part have their brain cut out and put into the bionic part. And he kidnapped Emily, and used her to make Spencer’s arm. And shortly after this announcement he smashes that female bionic from that obviously cut boss battle earlier in the game. And then he reveals he killed Spencer’s dog, Muffins, just because he was bored. And he once tore the "Do Not Remove" tag off a sofa. And his first instinct when eating a chocolate bunny is to bite its face off. The point they’re trying to make is Super Joe is EEEVIL, dammit!"

"This may or may not be a major plot spoiler, but your megacorporation employer is actually up to no good. In fact, you'll know it long before your character does. One clue is that the corporation's logo appears to be a big, evil-looking winged skull. The covertly sinister corporation has also plastered the entire city with totalitarian propaganda, such as threatening billboards that simply read, "Power and Control." In keeping with the game's theme of not making much sense, the corporation has also stamped lots of things with the nonsensical slogan, "We Are the Sun of Your New Life." It's only vaguely threatening, but it is printed in a scary authoritarian font. And in a shocking turn of events, the corporation is called "The Corporation," and it's being opposed by a resistance movement that calls itself, of all things, "the resistance."

Hello, McFly? I'm evil!

Wow, that is the most blunt villain ever! I should really hate what an obvious cardboard cut-out he is, but to be honest, it's kind of refreshing. I just LOVE the lack of creativity with him! It's like he just came out and said: I'm the antagonist. I tied your girlfriend to the railroad tracks, put a bomb on a bridge, and ate puppies for dinner. No reason, I'm just evil.
