Gallery of Evil
The Gallery of Evil is a directory (or book in the world of Neopia) which catalogues the most dangerous villains and monsters of Neopia. Released on September 12, 2000, the Gallery of Evil works as the opposite of the Gallery of Heroes, showcasing the darker creatures of Neopia who are the cause of most of the evil acts. They come in all shapes and sizes, but usually have dark colours and menacing or violent appearances. Most famous of all the villains is Dr. Frank Sloth, whose influence has been felt in Neopia for hundreds of years.
Although information on most villains and monsters are documented in the Gallery of Evil, not all of them are documented, such as The Chasm Beast, which still sinks any ships it comes across in the ocean. Despite this, the danger of such villains or monsters is not any less, and Neopians are advised to use caution. New entries into the Gallery are always being added as well, and Neopians are advised to keep up to date with the dangers it mentions. Also, some creatures such as the Monoceraptor and Swamp Ghoul have been taken out of their place in the Gallery of Evil, and replaced with newer villains. However, these monsters still exist, and whether they will be added back to the book has not been shared by The Neopets Team.
