New Villain Order is a web show focusing on a group of super villains on a quest to Take Over the World. The show attempts to evoke the RLSH (Real Life Superhero) community, though it is arguable whether or not they actually killed Urban Avenger.
The nVo thus far:
- Demon: The leader who, as you may have guessed, is a demon.
- Minion: Demon's less than bright henchman. Currently a free agent thanks to the expiration of his contract.
- Wolfgang: A werewolf.
- Mr. E: A bag masked individual dedicated to exposing corrupt cops and the resident legal expert.
- Chrome Dome: The robotic Head of Science. No longer a part of the group due to being The Mole for Coyle Command.
- Dr. Vorn: The ghost of a mad scientist who briefly worked with Coyle Command.
- The Shades: A number of villains with the same trash talking MO, outfit and accent. They are currently Mista Shade, Shade and Mr. Shade.
- Johnny Rocco: A Corrupt Corporate Executive who ran Meta Championship Wrestling and current leader after Demon's disappearance.

This show provides examples of:
- Aborted Arc:
- Villainess 'The Enchantress' had a video dedicated to her arrival, and hasn't appeared since.
- Ghost Vorn was supposed to also be a regular member, but only recieved his 'official membership' shortly before the show's Schedule Slip.
- The series itself has gone without conclusion due to a number of factors, mid story-line.
- A video by Coyle Command creator Kid-Sideburns reveals the Order of Villains retreated after Osmosis was sniped by Colonel Blitzer.
- All There in the Manual: The Facebook page further explains Minion's departure, which on the show is a six second video of him saying 'YAY, free agent, YAY'. In Facebook messages, he has voiced displeasure about working with Demon, who has been shown to miss him dearly. This also was the sole reason for there being multiple Shades until a video featured two having a discussion (Together on screen, no less).
- All Your Base Are Belong to Us: Chrome Dome takes over the nVo HQ shortly after posing as their new Head of Science.
- Alternate Universe: Several as of The Parallel Panic, primarily the home universe of Professor Chrome. Shortly after the story, a number of joke promotional videos were retconned into these.
- Ambiguously Evil: Superman X. He has done nothing evil himself, and in fact has battled Lord Sock and Chrome Dome when they were on the rampage. That said, he has been listed as a member of the New Villain Order itself, despite having been implied as Demon's foe early on.
- Back from the Dead: Doctor Vorn returns as a ghost after dying in his second appearance on Coyle Command.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Demon's catchphrase is Hello villains. Not exactly subtle.
- An ongoing rivalry with Coyle Command has seen the leaders kidnapped and a giant monster fought by the resident hero, Superman X.
- Dr. Evil shows up to do business in one episode.
- Reaches its logical conclusion in "The War Continues", where Superman X does battle with Chrome Dome with cameos and assistance from other members of the Metaverse.
- Did You Just Scam Cthulhu??: Well, Demon considers Dr. Evil the God of Evil. After agreeing to hold the world hostage together for a hefty ransom, Dr. Evil agrees to only take one million dollars, leaving what is likely going to be a lot more to the nVo.
- Eviler than Thou: An early video suggests Demon killed Jason Voorhess and took his mask.
- FaceHeel Turn: Minion was apparently RLSH Eradicator before joining the nVo with promises of money.
- Minion with an F in Evil: Minion initially cheers on Knighthood after being told he gives food to the homeless, and in general doesn't seem very evil on his own. He seems to have gotten better since he left the NVO, being brought in by Mr. Shade as a Specialist in torturing Knightfox.
- Mundane Made Awesome: In a rather good use of green screen, Demon and Coyle Commander finally face off...in a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Due to there being practically no budget, most significant moments happen off screen or with still images.
- Our Demons Are Different: According to Word of God, Demon can use Sith Lightning and teleportation.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: We so far haven't seen Wolfgang as a human, but Word of God confirms he has a werewolf relative.
- Chrome Dome was originally claimed to be from deep space until Coyle Command made him into a product of a mad scientist.
- A number of videos such as the Foax Hogan and Thomas Angry sketches were retconned into representing alternate universe forms of the NVO.
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Since his introduction, Mista Shade has been in almost every video. Fortunately he's been fairly well recieved.
