You know your ancient Greeks? They understood that war is a god. A god that requires human sacrifice. And in exchange, war gives man purpose. Meaning. A chance to rise above his petty mortal little self.
~ Erich Ludendorff (an example of a warmonger)
Fear drives everything, Stephen. Everything. Your life is governed by fear. Every decision you make is a product of that fear.
~ Scarecrow (an example of a fearmonger)
Use your aggressive feelings, boy! Let the hate flow through you!
~ Emperor Palpatine (an example of a hatemonger.)

Mongers are villains who promote specific activities, situations, or feelings that can be undesirable, infelicitous, and discreditable to the public. Whether it be through fear, hate, or conflict, they peddle it to the best effect to get what they want.

There are many types of mongers found in fiction, but arguably the three most common types are:

  • Warmongers: People who purposely propagate war in its various forms, whether to advance some kind of sinister agenda or simply for the love of warfare and violence. Many warmongers tend to be warlords of some kind.
  • Fearmongers: Someone who goes out of their way to instill fear into others. Usually they are entities or individuals who exist to make people afraid. Often fearmongering is also a tactic used by tyrannical rulers or oppressive governments in order to keep populations in check.
  • Hatemongers: Much like fearmongers, except they go out of their way to spread hate or bring out hatred in others. This is a tactic often used by hate groups (such as the Nazi Party or the Ku Klux Klan) in order to propagate their hateful views.
