|~ Shere Khan on his hatred towards mankind|
Villains that have a serious hatred for humanity or the nearest equivalent in their respective setting, and may even be genocidal in that regard - misanthropy can lead villains into committing terrible crimes as they no longer have compassion towards their fellow man (in fact, such villains often despise their fellow man).
Many human villains themselves (such as primate humans, cavemen or modern day humans), may also be misanthropic or "self-hating humans" as they view their species as mentally stupid, inferior, irredeemably flawed or worthless.
Many non-human villains (such as aliens, robots, animals, plants, humanoids, monsters, etc.) may also be misanthropic, as they view humans as mentally stupid, inferior, irredeemably flawed, worthless, or even oppressive.
