NOTE: If you are an admin seeking to ban me, PLEASE read through the below notes to see why you should come talk to me about any problems so we can discuss them and I can have a chance to explain myself. PLEASE!

I am the troper from TV Tropes known as Bobg. I was the sixth biggest contributor to the Complete Monster trope, with a total of 146 approved candidates. I was unfairly permabanned just for trying to list heartwarming moments for Jewwario. I know he did a really bad thing, but that doesn't mean all the good things he did should be ignored. My [sandbox] wasn't even fully finished by the time I got banned, so nobody knows the true extant of my contributions. A while ago, I was able to contact a neighbor and get them to partially finish the sandbox while making some other site edits, but they were banned for being a "meatpuppet" before my sandboz was fully complete. It is currently missing 25 examples. I will not take this sitting down, and I plan to get back on there eventually. For the time being though, I remembered the Pure Evil category on this site and came back here after being absent for a long time so I could nominate some characters I had in mind. I was unpleasantly surprised to discover the new rules saying you need 301 edits to vote in PE discussions and 501 edits to make them yourself. Still, I plan to get there. I have already broken a hundred, and I plan to keep helping out here until I can reach 501 so I can propose those characters I had in mind. I also plan to do a reevaluation post on Sonic.EXE, since I was the one who got him approved on TV Tropes.

However, it has recently come to my attention that some wikis ban for petty reasons and issue harsh blocking periods. I was recently blocked from the Real Life Villains wiki for an entire year for a stupid reason without anyone even notifying me of any issues or giving me the chance to appeal. That's a violation of my rights, as everyone is always supposed to be entitled to an appeal. I messaged the Community Central about that. If they don't respond, I will need to use a different account to message the banner so I can ask them nicely for an appeal. Why am I bringing this up? Because now that I've seen how harsh some sites can be, I am afraid of being blocked here, which will prevent me from editing for who knows how long and make it take even longer for me to reach 501 edits. I am begging all of you to always come and talk to me if I'm being a problem and give me a chance to fix things and discuss it with you. Please, if there is a problem, just tell me and I will talk with you guys about it. Don't ban me without a warning. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!


PS: If anyone cares enough to kindly finish my sandbox on TV Tropes, these are the remaining examples that need to be added:

UPDATE:

A kind troper known as Falcontallons finished my sandbox. If they happen to be reading this, thank you.


I have a re-proposal in mind:

What's the work?

Sonic.exe and its sequel, Sonic.exe Round 2, are creepypastas regarding a creature based on Sonic the hedgehog. They were removed from the Creepypasta wiki and moved to the trollpasta wiki for failing to meet the standards of quality control, though quality is irrelevant to PE discussions as long as the work is not exploitive.

Who is He/What Has He Done

X, or Sonic.exe, is an evil entity residing in another realm. His origin was explained by the author here. He was born out of pure dark matter in a void. He originally had no true form. At some point, he came to learn about our world. Viewing our world, he learned about Sonic the hedgehog and decided to copy his appearance. He also decided he wanted to use humanity as toys for him to torture. Using his powers, he influenced someone to create a doorway that will bridge the gap between his world and ours. This doorway took the form of a computer game, called "Sonic.exe" which was burned into a CD disc. When someone plays the game all the way through, the doorway is opened and he is able to temporarily come and take the player's soul back to his realm for eternal torture. The game features Sonic killing his friends. The characters in the game represent the souls of his victims, showing the player a preview of what is in store for them.

In the original story, the protagonist, Tom, receives the game along with a frantic note from his friend Kyle begging him to destroy the game and trap X in his realm forever. Kyle was Xs previous victim. Tom stupidly decides to instead play the game. After he plays through the game, X comes out to kill him.

In the official sequel, Round 2, a detective is investigating the killings. It is revealed that Tom was Xs 31st victim (the detective goes through all the victims one by one by visiting the crime scenes). It is also revealed that there is a cult trying to help X by delivering the game to random people for him to kill after they play the game. Every time a victim dies, a member of the cult goes and retrieves the game before shipping it off to another potential player. It is also revealed that X eventually plans to permanently cross over to our world and turn it into a realm of eternal suffering. The cult eventually kidnaps the detective and puts in the game, allowing X to come and claim his soul.

Freudian Excuse/Mitigating Factors

None. He is a sadistic demon who wants to torture people for his amusement. He does everything he does to sate his own sadism. In the removal proposal, it was argued that the story was exploitation, but that just is not true. There is no excessive gore, nor is there any rape or anything you would see in any of the really bad stories like The Woman to Eat The Children. The torture isn't actually shown upfront, just talked about. It's not offscreen villainy though, since we do see the bodies of the people who have had their souls removed. There is a part where one of the victims contacts the detective through skype in the sequel (apparently there is some form of doorway between worlds that allows that) and tells him of the horrible things X will do to humanity. X than catches onto the fact that the victim has been communicating with the detective using this bridge and takes him away for further torture. He also has a clear personality, being very sadistic and Faux Affably Evil. He likes to taunt the players through the game.

Heinous Standard

He tears the souls of people out and takes them back to his realm for eternal torture, condemning them to an And I Must Scream Fate Worse Than Death. He has condemned 32 people to this fate. His ultimate goal is to permanently cross over so he can turn the planet into a hell dimension where he can torture everyone forever.

Final Verdict

He's an easy keeper in my opinion. He has one of the most heinous end-goals out of any creepypasta villain, which is saying something. The removal proposal for him was short and did not take his official sequel into account. It also inaccurately claimed his story was exploitive. Furthermore, the blogpost claims that there is very little depth to the story. While that may have been true originally, the official sequel written by the original author and the official origin story change this by adding a lot of lore. I will admit that the two official stories are not particularly good (in fact, they are considered two of the worst creepypastas ever due to the stupidity of the characters, poor grammar, inaccuracies, logical fallacies, the absurd length of the sequel, and the author's habit of contradicting themselves). It doesn't help that the author has a massive ego and threw a fit when his stories were moved to the trollpasta wiki, creating a rant post about it and calling his creation a masterpiece while stating that he would force the creepypasta wiki admins to put his stories back before blocking everyone in said post who disagreed with him. That said, quality does not really matter here as long as it's not an offensive or exploitive work, which these stories are not.



I have a new candidate.

What's the work?

Elseworld's Finest: Supergirl & Batgirl, an elseworlds comic.

Who is He/What Has he Done

Lex Luthor, in this comic, is a villain with good publicity. He found Kal-El's spaceship and killed him while he was a baby, than took his corpse and preserved it, using it as an energy source for his lab to help him revolutionize Metropolis, all for glory of course. When his partner, professor Hamilton, felt remorse for his part in helping Lex use the corpse as an energy source and tried to reveal the truth, Lex discredited him and ruined his life. The details are not elaborated on, but Hamilton ended up a broken man with no friends or family (when he gets his "one phone call" at the end of the story, he reveals he has nobody to call, showing that he lost everything and has no one left who cares about him). It's also revealed that for unknown reasons, he hired Joe Chill to assassinate the Wayne family. The young Bruce and his parents were only saved by the intervention of a young Jim Gordon and his wife, who Joe killed instead when they saw him preparing to kill the Waynes on the streets. The young Barbra, only a child, was traumatized by the murder of her parents, and picked up her father's gun to force Joe Chill to surrender to the police. She was adopted by the Waynes and ended up becoming Batgirl, while Bruce acted in a role similar to Alfred for her.

Years later, Lex conspires with Joker to take care of Batgirl and Supergirl. Joker in this version has a villainous crush on Batgirl and is using Kryptonite steroids to obtain a huge physique to show off to her (this is probably one of the most poorly written versions of Joker), and Lex agrees to help him get Batgirl's attention if he helps him by using his Kryptonite enhanced body to beat Supergirl to death.

When Batgirl and Supergirl reach them, Lex has Joker beat Supergirl to within an inch of her life, while he (Lex) taunts her about having killed her infant cousin she never met, saying that he didn't murder anyone because aliens don't have rights and are worthless beings. Batgirl however manages to distract Joker long enough for Supergirl to deck him in the face and KO him (seems he's a glass cannon). Lex taunts the two heroes by saying that nobody will ever believe them. Batgirl however reveals she recorded his confession to killing baby Kal-El, and while the legalities he mentioned and his wealth and status will keep him out of prison, his public image has been destroyed. The two heroes vow that one day, he will be brought to justice.

Freudian Excuse/Mitigating Factors

None. He did revolutionize Metropolis and build up a public image as a very good man, but that was all just a smokescreen so he could gain glory and hide his crimes.

Heinousness

He. Murdered. A. Baby. He also put a hit on the Wayne family including the young Bruce, who was a child at the time, and has Joker beat Supergirl half to death while taunting her about having killed her cousin, saying she and Kal-El are worthless since they are not human. He also ruined Hamilton's life, and, at the climax, mockingly reminds him of the part he played in enabling him to use the baby he killed to achieve fame and glory, knowing full well that Hamilton is plagued by guilt.

He has no real competition in the comic. Joker doesn't do much aside from nearly beating Supergirl to death. Lex wanted him to do that.

Moral Event Horizon

He crossed it by murdering a baby.

Conclusion

Infanticide, contact killing of what was meant to be a family of three including a little boy, and the attempted murder of both Batgirl and Supergirl, the latter by having Joker beat her to death while Lex taunts her. Yep, I'd say he meets the mark.
