The weak have no place in the Macroverse.
~ Gan while destroying a planet.
Only the Strongest shall rise to Supremacy!
~ Nekrozoth

Villains who champion the motto "survival of the fittest." They differ from Nazis and Supremacists in the fact they do not always value race or nation; they value individual strength and often seek to create a society or world in which only the most ruthless of individuals exist to father the next generation.

Social Darwinists are not always intentionally villainous; some genuinely believe the philosophy is good. However, application of the philosophy often leads to the formation of Fascist states or anarchy in which people must fight to survive.

As mentioned above, the Social Darwinist is often confused with the Nazi or Supremacist, but they are different concepts. The Nazi and Supremacist are often racist while the Darwinist is not and merely believes that the ancient rule of "only the strong survive" is just. There are even some scientists (fictional and real) who try to support the theory that humans should abandon the "weak" in favor of the strong, resulting in many abuses of power.

Often, Social Darwinism leads to the villain's downfall, as they may be occupied with infighting rather than getting rid of the protagonist.
