My name is Ego, and I'm your dad, Peter.

Villains who are or were Parents; anyone with children belongs here. Adoptive and step-parents also qualify as well.

Many of these villains qualify as Abusers and Disciplinarians, as they may abuse their children (psychologically, physically or perhaps even worse) either because they do not obey or simply by pure sadism - though not all villainous parents maltreat their children. Likewise, they might corrupt their children and destroy their innocence, shifting them into villains (some of them can become tragic characters), often forcing them to carry out their legacy should they fail or die (e.g. Aria).

On the other hand, being a parent can stand as a redeeming quality because some of these villains may reform themselves in order to protect and take care of their children, or saving them from much worse evil-doers (e.g. Darth VaderMichael De Santa, or Theodore Bagwell.)

There are also many characters who are not even aware of being a parent, or simply do not care much about that (technically, this can count as an evil deed). It is also possible that some of these villains are tragic characters, who turned evil because they lost their children (e.g. Yokai from Big Hero 6 and the alternate version of Martha Wayne from Flashpoint).
