No one expects a villain to be completely on the up-and-up. For every baddie in a movie who wants to play by the rules, there are dozens of antagonists who will lie, cheat, and steal to get what they want. This dedication to scummy behavior rarely works out in their favor.
Every member of the rogue's gallery collected here cheated to win and came out with a big, fat goose egg, but none of them cheated in the same way. Some of these cheats were just trying to get ahead in a game of cards, while others were trying to hack into government systems through extreme parachuting. Some villains even had clear and legal shots to take over the world and instead tried to do so through underhanded means.
Every cheat we've collected here failed at their job. It's enough to make you wonder if cheating is ever worth it.
