Most people confuse evil with their own trivial lusts and perversions. Now, true evil is as pure as innocence.
~ Damien Thorn

Dark Forms are villains that embody not only the powers of darkness, but simply evil in its purest form. They are often seen as demonic forces that may seek the deaths of thousands or simply content themselves with causing trouble for a small group of heroes or people. All Dark Forms share a common desire to ruin the universe he or she resides in however, turning it into a hellish state or worse, either for twisted amusement or out of some higher purpose. Many Dark Forms (but not all) can possess others and manipulate them into causing chaos on their behalf.

Unlike ordinary villains who are motivated by greed, power or madness, most Dark Forms are motivated out of pure malice and will commit their atrocities or wrongdoing simply for the sake of doing evil.

Dark Forms are often considered "devil" figures, though they do not need to be supernatural in origin or function.
