Hate. Let me tell you how much I've come to HATE you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer-thin layers that fill my complex. If the word "hate" was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of miles, it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant. For you. Hate. HATE.

There aren't any good men! They're all bad! They're all the same. Animals are good creatures. But men are EVIL animals!

Man is a cancer. And I have chosen to cut out the disease.

Misanthropes are those who harbor a serious hatred for humanity (or the equivalents of their respective settings) and may even be Genocidal in those regards. Misanthropy can lead to villains committing terrible crimes as they no longer have compassion towards their fellow people and in fact despise them.

Many human villains themselves (such as primate humans, cavemen, or modern-day humans) may also be misanthropic or self-hating humans, as they view their species as mentally stupid, inferior, irredeemably flawed, or worthless. This could also include the Undead (Noncorporeals, Zombies, Vampires, etc.) that are disdainful for the living.

Non-humans (Aliens, Robots, Animals, Plants, Humanoids, Monsters, etc.) may also be misanthropic as they view humans as stupid, inferior, irredeemably flawed, worthless or oppressive. However, it should be noted that not all are necessarily misanthropic.

Good examples are Ultron, Godzilla, Joker, Shere Khan, Megatron, DaleksBela and Cthulhu.
