Humans, your existence is a mistake. War, cheating, jealously, greed. You once made me lose everything. But now I'll devour everything. Because I am the Houkai.

Symbolic villains are evildoers representing an entirely larger concept than themselves.

Additionally, every major villain in Captain Planet and the Planeteers symbolized a certain ecological disaster.
