Characters who are '''amoral''' are unable to be truly judged by our concepts of right and wrong, or happen to lack a moral sense, thereby being unconcerned with notions of right and wrong.

Eh, good, evil - both fine choices. Whatever floats your boat.
~ Bender Bending Rodríguez.
I can do no wrong, for I do not know what it is.
~ Satan.

Characters who are Amoral or Immoral are unable to be truly judged by preconceived concepts of right and wrong or lack moral senses thereby being unconcerned with these notions. Some have moral agency issues but all belong here.

Most Deities fall under this; however, on a terrestrial scale examples of Amoral Villains would be:

  • DemonsDark Forms and other forces of evil who only know how to be evil and do not understand good and bad (e.g. the Black Mass) unless the story makes it clear they have moral agencies (e.g. Bill Cipher).
  • Individuals who do not conform to the archetypes of good or bad (e.g. Deadpool) and do not wish to be evil. Such characters fall under Chaotic Neutrals.

Pure Evils can NEVER qualify. While they may be unconcerned with what is right and wrong they are aware of what it is but always choose to do what wrong. Pure Evils understand morality as part of their moral agencies and usually take pleasure in their actions. If they don't believe in good and evil they should go under Delusional and/or Nihilists instead.
