From this day forth, we will be known as Faust! Those who don't know better may think our actions are acts of the devil. However, even if our hands are soaked in blood, we will turn this country into what it has the potential to be!
~ Night Rogue.
Let me ask you a question. What if Pakistan marched into Mumbai tomorrow, and you knew that they were going to drag your daughters into a soccer stadium for execution, and you could just... stop it. With a flick of this switch. Wouldn't you? Wouldn't you all?
~ Alexander Pierce trying to convince the Security Council that his goals are for the greater good.

Extremists are villains who have well-intentioned goals for the greater good, but whose methods and ultimate ends are very extreme, to the point that the heroes have no choice but to stop them. Sometimes, extremists can go too far with their actions, to the point where they cross the Moral Event Horizon and become straight-up delusional villains who think that they are saving the world by removing free will. Some are also heroes that believe that crossing the line is needed when enforcing the law. They do not often cross the same lines as a terrorist, but it is possible for a villain to fit both categories even if the extent of their crimes is ultimately for a noble cause.

Although monitored heavily by authorities and often despised by the public, these Extremists are dangerous and unsettling in the fact they are working within the law (albeit the very fringes of it) and may have many supporters for their cause, although they sometimes work for themselves and do not work directly under the government. Furthermore, some can win the approval of the public as long as they don't go too far.

Extremists are similar to anti-villains, because they have noble goals. The main difference is that extremists commit utterly heinous acts for a cause they genuinely believe to be a just cause, while an anti-villain's goals are more understandable and sympathetic.

Religious extremism, racist organizations that do not become outlawed (in their native country), and individuals/groups who hold extremely controversial, often hateful views, yet are not officially considered terrorists can be added here.

For more information, read up on Hate Groups. Those listed as "Non-Outlawed" would be acceptable here, as would some extreme "fringe" groups, non-outlawed cults and so forth. Do NOT use this as an excuse to create propaganda designed to demonize a certain group or people; they must have established facts showing they are what most would consider a destructive cult or similar.

Note: These villains are NOT Pure Evil, since extremists are mostly anti-villains with noble goals that go too far with it being more than mere delusions despite their actions. Pure Evil villains that commit horrible acts out of their own twisted or hypocritical causes should go under Terrorists‏‎, Vengeful‏‎, Jingoists and/or Delusional‏‎ instead of this category (e.g. Koba, Ego, Unalaq, Red Skull, Light Yagami, Albert Wesker, Drago Bludvist, Judge Claude Frollo, Ultron, Skrael, Lord Cutler Beckett, Colonel William Stuart, General Mandible, and King Runeard).

Also, DO NOT add characters like these even if they are not Pure Evil:
