The very opposite of a Cheater, these are villains that, while they fight on the side of evil, still have honorable traits. As such, they usually treat their foes and followers with respect and demonstrate some extent of mercy or fair-play, they never resort cheating to win, they may avoid fighting people that are weaker, they may suppress their own power, and they may keep their end of a bargain that they promise to keep if they lose or if the hero does something they ask. Numerous times, these traits often result in the Villain Turning To The Good Side. Many honorable villains have a common theme of finding a "worthy opponent", and thus want the hero they fight to be strong or get stronger.
NOTE: Do not add Complete Monsters to this category with VERY few exceptions. Generally, Complete Monsters have no code of honor, due to their nature, but some characters may qualify for both, if their acts are atrocious enough and are beyond redemption, but still declare themselves as "a man of my word", and will still reluctantly show fair-play to the hero. The best example is President Coriolanus Snow.
