2/?

If the villain is a bank robber after money, for example, then the players should get the sense that the villain has a thought-out plan. The villain should be shown arriving well-equipped to rob the bank. Ideally, the villain should, mid-heist, encounter something that's not part of the plan, but then overcome that problem - not necessarily with ease, but certainly with a sense that it was a minor bump at best and now they're back on track. This shows the villain as being competent, which is ideal.

Second - and this is very, very important - the villain has to win on occasion, and preferably those victories are seen directly by the players, not simply mentions offhand about how "he's conquered another planet between the last chapter and this one." (not that that's a bad idea, it's just that if those are his only victories then they're essentially meaningless to the PCs).

Now, here we get tricky. If the villain's goal is nothing less than the extinction of man, then it's going to be difficult to have the villain pull this off while still leaving heroes around to fight him.

The villain winning, of course, comes entirely from how you define "victory." Okay, so Lord Badguy did not succeed in his latest attempt to conquer the Land of Awesome. He was, however, able to destroy the Chalice of Catharsis before the good guys could drink from it and get strong enough to fight him directly! Even if the villain does not see his or her victories as being victories his or herself ("Gah! You've won this round, but I'll be back!"), the audience will, at least, see that he or she is just as capable as the good guy. Villainous victories, in the audience's mind, count for more than hero's victories. Of course the hero is going to win. He or she is the hero, and his or her victories bring us closer to a state of normallacy (whatever "normal" is in the setting). But when a villain wins? Oops. One step closer to Armageddon.

Yeah Lady Broly when not roided out is pretty cute. I'd teach her SSJG form so she doesn't have to beef up.

Also the aliens who's planet's water was stolen explicitly identified themselves as being from another galaxy, so Aku's reach is intergalactic and FTL.

LAWFUL EVIL
"I will act only in my own self-interest and will need compensation to even considering others. I will work within the laws of the land and accepted social mores as much as necessary, but I will endeavor to twist such laws or mores in my favor at all times."

NEUTRAL EVIL.
"I will act only in my own self-interest and will need compensation to even considering others. I will act in whatever way seems most convenient at the time after a careful consideration of the status quo, which I will respect only insofar as it benefits me."

CHAOTIC EVIL
"I will act only in my own self-interest and will need compensation to even considering others. Laws and social mores mean nothing to me and will not enter into my consideration at any point. I probably mock the idea that they even should."

Doesn't all fit, even if I cut out all 3 variants of True Neutral.

Oh, really? Do tell, I am quite curious as to who you think I am. I wonder if I'll live up to their legend. They must be bad if your short attention span can remember them.
