Antagonists from media subgenre known as Exploitation - often extremely controversial and dealing with taboo subject matter this media often merges with horror stories, black comedies and adult entertainment; it was especially prominent during a period known as the "Video Nasty era" spawning many titles that continue to be seen today due to their (intentionally-)controversial content. Exploitation media is often banned but that which is released usually becomes cult-favorites amongst a small yet dedicated subgroup.

IN ORDER TO QUALIFY THE MEDIA SHOULD BE VERY WELL-KNOWN FOR ITS INTENTIONALLY CONTROVERSIAL CONTENT which is often amplified to excess in order to invoke a phenomena known as "Refuge In Audacity". South Park is perhaps one of the the best examples of a modern (and relatively mainstream) Exploitation series still available to the public; though other shows have since tried to improve upon its success with more and more outrageous antics.

Perfect examples of an Exploitation Villain would be Peter Griffin from Family Guy, Eric Cartman from South Park and Light Yagami from Death Note.

Also by its very nature almost all Internet trolling-related phenomena is a type of Exploitation media; these can often be even more taboo due to greater difficulty in censoring the Internet. Their opposites are Controversial or Exploitation Heroes.

NOTE: A few villains from this genre sometimes do not qualify as Pure Evil as they are from a disturbing media deliberately made to shock viewers, but it is possible for an Exploitation villain to count if they meet a standard and all the criteria.
