Guards! Throw these minuscule vermin into the dungeon until they are of worthier size! And give Mr. Neutron the presidential suite!

Gaolers, also called Wardens or Jailers, are villains who are known for keeping Inmates in check. These villains are feared for or known to imprison their captives, whether it is in cells, cages, etc. For obvious reasons, the vast majority of these villains are Corrupt Officials. Many are also Psychopaths who enjoy tormenting their victims by imprisoning them (e.g. Buffalo Bill from The Silence of the Lambs). Ironically, some Gaolers can be prisoners themselves.

Gaolers can qualify as Pure Evil if they imprison and torture innocents such as Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear who acted as a penitentiary warden and broke toys physically and psychologically by making Sunnyside Daycare a nightmarish place, Infinite who tortured Sonic for six months before wanting to have him thrown into space so he could see his world become an utter wasteland before he died, as well as Samuel Norton who continuously blackmails and imprisons the innocent to launder money.

There are also certain kinds of Gaolers known under a distinct subcategory known as Trap Masters. Trap Masters are skilled at ensnaring and trapping others, thereby leaving them to be imprisoned.
