Villains Wiki
I took Gotham's White Knight, and I brought him down to our level. It wasn't hard. See, madness, as you know, is like gravity - all it takes is a little... push!
~ The Joker on how he turned Harvey Dent into another killer.
They are brainwashed. And hypnotized. They have lost touch with their reality. They have forgotten the magic of their existence, and they don't remember that they are noble, and free. The Big Fish Boss took that all away from them.
~ Ratboy Genius detailing how Big Fish Boss manipulated billions of sentient beings into becoming his mindless soldiers.

A villain or Evil Artifact able to attract many to the Dark Side via persuasion, temptation or manipulation, calling upon one's darkest desires and tempting them with the prospect of fulfilling their wishes or granting them power or simply because of the foul evil energy radiating from it so intensely that it twists the minds of any who come into contact with it and increases their inner darkness (i.e. Malefor).

Those submitted to Corrupting Influences change increasingly for the worse over time, depending on how the influence works and how often they are exposed to it. This corruption may only occur when in the presence of a Corrupting Influence (though the victim soon develops an unhealthy addiction to it - or gets convinced by the villain's arguments) or increase gradually over the time, but if nothing is done to stop it the corruption will soon become permanent and irreversible. On rare occasions this leads to Damned Souls as some go over the Moral Event Horizon.

Good examples of this are John Milton, Bill Cipher, Ego, Dormammu, Walter White, Mola Ram, Lord Voldemort, Sauron, Aku, Zhan Tiri, Turbo, The Joker, Evanora, Slade, Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear, Rex Dangervest, Isaac Ray Peram Westcott, The Taker of Souls, Jack Ferriman, Screenslaver, Dawn Bellwether, Drago Bludvist, Bradford Buzzard and Scar.

They are also the evil counterpart of Role models.
