Since Kira has appeared 6 years ago, wars have stopped and global crime rates have been reduced by over 70%. But, it's not enough. This world is still rotten with too many rotten people! Somebody has to do this! When I first got that notebook all those years ago, I knew I had to do it. No, I was the only one who could. I understood that killing people was a crime. There was no other way! The world had to be fixed! A purpose given to me! Only I could do it. Who else could have done it and come this far?! Will they keep going?! The only one, who can create a new world, is me.
~ Light Yagami's rant about his motives and why he was Kira.

Extremists are perhaps one of the most dangerous types of "villain" one can encounter - they are obviously criminal or malicious in action, supporting beliefs totally at odds with what most find a "normal" or "fair" society yet they have not (at least publically) crossed the legal line into outright terrorism. Being the opposite of delusionals, who only think that their goals are in the right, they 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 delusionals who thinks that they are saving the world by removing free will. Extremists' schemes will possibly be immoral, unscrupulous, wicked, villainous, sociopathic, diabolical and rather quite deviously devilish, such as framing, kidnapping, murdering, covering-up, manipulating, psychologically abusing people, emotionally blackmailing and even using every single psychological manipulation tactic there is.

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.

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.
