You gentlemen have reaped the extraordinary financial and political benefits of developing weapons with the sole purpose of annihilating the Earth. Your fortunes depend on your ability to concoct new ways of exterminating mankind, and, luckily, the powers that be have been behind you so far. However, there are those out there more interested in developing stronger international bonds in the hopes that it will precipitate peace. These people are the aberrations in a culture of war we in this room wish to propagate. So we must fuel the fires of war now, gentlemen!

Fear drives everything, Stephen. Everything. Your life is governed by fear. Every decision you make is a product of that fear.
~ Scarecrow (an example of a fearmonger).
Do you know what makes a great leader? The ability to instill fear in your subjects and use that fear against your enemies.

Use your aggressive feelings, boy! Let the hate flow through you!

Mongers are Villains who promote specific activities, situations and/or feelings that can be undesirable, infelicitous and discreditable to the public masses. Whether it be through fear, hatred and/or conflicts they peddle it to get what they want.

There are many types of Mongers in fiction but the arguably most common types are:

  • Warmongers: People who propagate war to advance sinister agendas or simply for the sake of it. Many Warmongers tend to be WarlordsWeapons Dealers can qualify if they sell to warring factions. Examples include Erich Ludendorff, Major and Ares.
  • Fearmongers: People who go out of their way to instill fear in others; they usually exist to make people afraid. Fearmongering is also a tactic used by tyrannical rulers or oppressive governments in order to keep populations in check. Some fearmongers are also xenophobes who use fear and prejudice to make others dislike a particular group/race. Examples include Scarecrow, Gaston LeGume, Betelgeuse and Digby Driver.
  • Hatemongers: People much like Fearmongers except they go out of their way to spread or bring out hatred. This is a tactic used by real-life groups such as the Nazi Party and Ku Klux Klan to spread hateful views. Examples include Shadowy Figure, Dazzlings and Hotshot TV Producer.
