|“||Soon, immortality will be mine and the entire universe will be under my foot! I wonder what I should do first? I guess I should start with what I won't do when I become immortal... die!||„|
The quest for immortality is a common motivation for villains, most commonly occurring with old or aging villains; normally, it is the fear of death that drives their pursuit. Although the pursuit of immortality itself is not exactly villainous, quite often it comes with a heavy price, such as sacrificing others for them to gain it. Famous examples include Walter Donovan, Arpeggio, and Frieza.
