Thank you, Goku. Your anger feels simply incredible.
~ Goku Black getting stronger from the pain dealt to him.
Come on, baby! Beat me 'till your knuckles bleed! And why quit there? You know there's only one way to stop me!
~ Joker as Batman beats him.
The world saddled me with so much pain, the only way I can keep on is to share it from time to time.
~ D'Spayre to Dagger.

Sadomasochists are known to thrive off the pain of others or inflicted on themselves. This is common in Perverts who endanger others for thrills, Suicidal Villains who use pain as a coping mechanism or Villains who "feed" off each others' pain and keep it going out of mutual need. Examples are Pinhead, Goku Black, Junko Enoshima, Horace Pinker, Mystery Burns, Tomura Shigaraki and many versions of Joker.

Sadomasochists differ from Sadists who only get pleasure from pain inflicted on others; Sadomasochists don't just enjoy pain but get a fix out of it and need it as opposed to wanting it. They also differ from Masochists who only get pleasure from receiving pain but don't strive to find it; they merely enjoy it when it comes to them.

This also applies to Villains that require pain in predatory fashions in order to sustain themselves, exist and/or thrive (i.e. KeyFace, Zalgo, D'Spayre) though this does not mean that they still cannot enjoy it.
