The Vengeful

P.S. You still have a couple of typos in your list

Thanks for your input Leavey!

Where did you see the typos? I can't seem to find them. The curse of being too close to your own material, I suppose..

The Unhinged. Unpredictability is the biggest reason.

That's a good point - the volatility of their behavior could keep you uneasy and always on your toes; Thanks for the vote Arkas!

It's worse when you don't know they are volatile and the irrational behavior comes out of nowhere. As it did in Psycho.

Thanks for the vote DC, and I see that this archetype contains the villain from your all-time favorite film: Titanic (1997).

Thanks for the vote Laiath, it's scary how little empathy these guys specifically embody (which is zero!)

Yeah I feel like in the end I can justify any other type of villain's actions be it damaged childhood, cycle of life, insanity, etc. but someone hurting others just for the sake of hurting them gives me the creeps @_@

Exactly, these guys are just, plain evil in its purest form which makes them a mystery. A mystery means you can't truly understand them, which means you can't really control them. There's absolutely no weak spots to foil them here.
