Not all villains are really evil, in fact many villains are insecure and lash out at the world or society in an attempt to assert themselves - these types of villains are very similar to tragic villains and can overlap with attention-seekers but the defining characteristic of an insecure villain is that they are lying in many ways both to themselves and others.
Alternatively, an insecure villain is a villain who acts in a homicidal way due to severe pain suffered by some tragic reason. Sometimes, they are victims of bullying or severe abuse by someone even more evil than themselves.
Usually, these villains just need a friend or loved one, other times they need acceptance - yet it is also common for an insecure villain to simply be too far gone and absorbed in his or her own troubles to accept (or want) help. Ironically, many insecure villains can also qualify as an Arrogant Villain or Egotist. These villains suffer from what is called a "Superiority Complex", where they feign arrogance, egomania and narcissism to hide their flaws from others, and more often than not, themselves. A perfect example of this is Lord Hater.
By definition, a Complete Monster can never be part of this category.
