It's important to note that none of these characters are Pure Evil. No matter how cruel, sadistic or unnecessary their actions were, it's never completely their fault since they were being controlled by someone else.
Even if, in a very rare case, Pure Evil villains had been possessed/brainwashed by someone else (e.g. Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin was brainwashed by Tretji Rebenok and became Man on Fire; Makuta Teridax was taken over by the Mask of Ultimate Power and thus became a mindless puppet; Brajira of the Messiah had his memories erased by Robogog of the 10-sai and became Buredo-RUN of the Cyborg), it should go under Pawns instead of this category. Additionally, in rarer cases, a villain who's meant to LOOK pure evil in a flashback or the legacies of their evil actions can have their pure evil status retconned via snapping out of a possessed/brainwashed state and deciding they like their new life better.
IMPORTANT: do not create pages based on this category, as long-time heroes who are only briefly controlled by villains (Such as Sonic the Hedgehog who only temporarily turned into Dark Sonic due to fake Chaos Emeralds or Red who only temporarily infected by the Chef Pig's potion in the Angry Birds Toons episode Pig Plot Potion) do not count.
