One Bad Apple: kiwimoogle84: I'm SURE Joffrey from GoT has been mentioned.

Him, and Leso Varen from Feist's literary world.

I'd actually argue against Joffrey because if he wasn't king he'd be no more evil than any other crazy cat skinning kid. Joffrey just sort of coasted into a position where he can really let his evil roam free but he lacks the ambition of a Baelish or Margery.

In the books (according to a friend who read them, I can't handle the rape\murder\torture for that long), Joffrey actually showed a head for politics and hints of being a decent person, he just hero-worshiped his (step)father and tried to emulate him. Bad role model, groomed by Cersei for psychosis...he's more a victim of shiatty parenting than a real villain, in my book.

/Best moment of the show was when I thought Ned Stark was going to take Joffrey under his wing and raise him as his own
//And then I was introduced to the main concept of Game Of Thrones: Evil Santa is a sadist

Pinhead was more like Hell's middle manager. He only dragged you to Hell if you asked for it.

He even stopped his fellows from taking a child who opened the box, making him almost a hero.

The Shakespearean version may have been the first villain in western literature who was evil for the sake of being evil. He had nothing to gain from what he did. He did it out of sheer malice. It's chilling.

I actually wrote an essay when i was in school arguing that Iago is the good guy in the play. I do not sincerely believe that but a careful read of Othello shows that Iago is anything but evil for evil's sake. People who make that claim haven't actually read the play.  Iago is a ambiguous, very human, character.

Then the mallet began to rise and descend, destroying the last of Jack Torrance's image. The thing in the hall danced an eerie, shuffling polka, the beat counterpointed by the hideous sound of the mallet head striking again and again. Blood splattered across the wallpaper. Shards of bone leaped into the air like broken piano keys. It was impossible to say just how long it went on. But when it turned its attention back to Danny, his father was gone forever. What remained of the face became a strange, shifting composite, many faces mixed imperfectly into one. Danny saw the woman in 217; the dogman; the hungry boything that had been in the concrete ring.

"Masks off, then," it whispered. "No more interruptions."

The mallet rose for the final time. A ticking sound filled Danny's ears.

- The Shining

The Overlook Hotel, hands down.
Evil, distilled.

Good call, but that's more of a conglomerate, or an essense.

Can a conglomerate make a phone call?

KingoftheCheese: I wonder how many more "herp de derp did anyone say [some form of God's name] yet?" comments this thread will see before it closes out.

There has been some real genius at work since you posted this.  Real careers in comedy, I'm telling you.
