The Immoral or Amoral are unable to be judged by concepts of right and wrong or happen to lack moral senses. Some are known to have Moral Agency issues but all belong in this category.
Most abstract characters such as Deities fall under this. However, on a terrestrial scale examples of Amoral Villains would be:
- Artificial Intelligences (e.g. AUTO) unlike those with free will (e.g. Skynet).
- Predators guided by instinct (e.g. Sabor) unlike those who find joy in torturing prey before killing and eating them (e.g. The Beldam, Pennywise).
- Dimwits whose stupidities get out of hand and cause disasters (e.g. Beavis and Butt-head) unlike those who can mostly control themselves (e.g. Joffrey Baratheon, Peter Griffin).
- Demons, Dark Forms and similar forces who only know how to be evil and do not understand good and bad (e.g. The Black Mass) unless it is made clear they have Moral Agencies (e.g. Bill Cipher).
- Lovecraftian Horrors are known to be Amoral at least on human-level comprehension (e.g. Azathoth) unless they have human moral agencies (e.g. Nyarlathotep).
- Kids, Teenagers and other Juvenile Delinquents who are unaware due to their age or who/what they are hurting (e.g. Sid Phillips) except for when they enjoy themselves (e.g. Henry Evans, Eric Cartman).
- Individuals who do not conform to archetypes of good or bad (e.g. Deadpool) and do not wish to be evil. Such characters can fall under Chaotic Neutrals.
- Most Villains by Proxy who did not choose to become evil in the first place (e.g. The Batman Who Laughs, Spinel).
Pure Evils can NEVER qualify. While they may be unconcerned with right and wrong they are aware of what is but always chooses to do wrong.
