Villains from a controversial media subgenre known as exploitation which deals with taboo subject matter merging with stories involving horror, dark comedy, deconstruction, (sur)realism, adult entertainment, etc.; it was especially prominent during a period known as the Video Nasty era spawning titles that continue to be seen due to their (intentionally) controversial content. Exploitation media is often banned but those which get released become cult-favorites amongst dedicated subgroups of fans. Also by its very nature most Internet trolling-related phenomena is exploitation-related and can be even more taboo due to greater difficulties in censoring the Internet.

IN ORDER TO QUALIFY THE MEDIA SHOULD BE KNOWN FOR ITS OFFENSIVE VIEWING MATERIAL which is amplified to invoke the phenomena of Refuge in Audacity (i.e. South Park, Family Guy and Helluva Boss.)

These villains are also hard to qualify as Pure Evil given they are a part of a genre that is meant to be over-the-top appalling, thus making it hard for said villains of the stories to meet such a high heinous standard since both the story and the villain(s) themselves stand out. The story also need a deep meaning and somewhat of a moral. However, exceptions can still exist if they do in fact manage to meet such a standard and meet all the criteria (e.g. Light Yagami, Alan Yates, Josh, Black Noir, Art the Clown and Ruth Chandler).

Examples of exploitation villains are Peter Griffin, Homelander and Eric Cartman. Their opposites are the Controversial, or exploitation heroes.
