About-header

The Villains Wiki is a mirror version to the Heroes Wiki and is dedicated to creating a database of all known villains from all media - ranging from Saturday morning cartoon shows of old to books, video games and comics. Without the villain, there is rarely a plot, and this wiki aims to showcase the characters we all love to hate. All are welcome to join in and contribute here, so long as edits are constructive, discussions are positive, and both are relevant to the subject of villains.

For more information about how you can get started here, please check the "Helping Out" section below, and be sure to mind our "Rules and Policies." Thanks for stopping by!

Rules-header

Before contributing, please read our rules and abide by them.

NO REAL WORLD EXAMPLES - in order to keep our wiki as neutral as possible we will no longer be allowing the creation of "Real World" articles, unlike fiction the real-world is rarely black and white in terms of morality and one man's "villain" can be another man's "hero" (no matter how wicked they may appear). As such we have decided to stop the practice of adding real-world articles to this wiki and are now catering exclusively to fiction, folklore and theological figures.

NO FAN-FICTION - We do not allow fan-fiction on this wiki. Original content is to be kept on your user page. Only notable "fiction" (NOT OF ONES OWN MAKING) is allowed. If something is not found on KnowYourMeme.com or does not have videos on Youtube not made by the original author then it will be deleted on sight.

Plagiarism - Any article added to this wiki must be of your own making. Articles found to be taken from other sites without permission will be deleted without warning.
