Characters who are willing to commit murder and have done so at least once, or attempted to do so, the act must be deliberate and not in self-defense or during war-time situations. Be they mass-murderers, serial-killers, or thrill-killers these characters all share one common trait - the willingness to kill in cold blood, making them very dangerous even in a realm of criminals and wrong-doers.
Notable variations of Homicidal villains includes:
- Spree Killer: Homicidals who kills two or more victims in a short time in multiple locations for no apparant reason or pattern.
- Omnicidals: Villains whose main goal is to eradicate life, not content with simple genocide, the Omnicidal Maniac seeks to eradicate absolutely everyone in his or her world or universe - although often the case not all Omnicidal Maniacs are actually insane, some are simply malevolent beyond words or are a corrupt AI or a similiar entity. These type of villain is one of the extreme variants of Homicidals.
- Attempted Murderers: Villains who have admitted to, or been charged with the crime of attempted murder, but have never actually succeeded. They are just as dangerous as regular murderers, but the fact that they have never actually killed anyone may be a sign of incompetence. They may plan to kill someone and be thwarted, or go on homicidal rampages, and only injure people.
(NOTE: By default, Murderers, Cataclysts, Genocidal Villains, and Serial Killers go into this category.)
