Levana from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer as well. . Or maybe they realized that, hey, they were actually WRONG and decide to do something about it. I don’t know why, but that’s just really fun to me. I’m going to be liberal and say Edmund from Narnia falls into this category, even though he’s not a villain. (I also want to know what's in Gotham's water supply. And, really, like 95% of the other villains in Batman as well. Ooh, yeah, The Phantom definitely has flair, though I've only seen the movie with Gerard Butler, I've yet to actually read the book. *cackles* And, ya know, Loki has some moments of absolute fabulousness as well. I mean, if they’re offering you sweets who are you to say no? Probably shouldn’t, but here we are. XD) The Queen of Hearts, yes! (Obviously I am a decisive person. The entitled, spoiled brats are always a hoot. I’m a big sucker for Villain with Style (I LOVE Hela. But not sentient entities aside, I do like a good villain-to-hero arc. Do we share any? -Wolfgang Dankworth from Blank Mastermind?? I was the saaame! >.>). ;D, All of your choices of villains types are great. Thank you for coming up with even more examples! And lastly, my absolute favorite villain trope…. Can’t have a hair out of place, after all. Oh my goodness, I was SO CLOSE to adding Dr. Doofensmirtz in the chaotic evil category but…I don’t even know if he really is evil. Ok and Loki wins title of the Best Villain Ever. Nightmare. Keeper was the definition of creepy. But sassmasters and creepy villains are also amazingly alluring. All For One's Lieutenants. ALL THE YESS TO THE SASSMASTERS. Only the best for them. XD And GAH. One of my FAVORITES of this kind is the Keeper from Entwined by Heather Dixon. Can’t live with ‘em (‘cause they’d probably kill you), can’t live without them (‘cause then there’d be no story). I rest my case. Ah yisss. <333333 Ahem. Arguably my favorite series EVER. preserving him, a Pupil of the Older Hero Until He Turned To Evil. Like the antiheroes? have a knack for stylin’ villains and it’s great! We love them so much, we now are starting to root for the “bad guys.” There’s a whole TV Trope dedicated to this new found love of villains. And yes, definitely Jadis too. THERE’S A REASON HE’S THE BEST. XD, I was mostly intrigued by how Snow truly thought he was doing what was best, in his own demented way. ... watch the Moral Event Horizon and Complete Monster -entries on TV Tropes. <3 Capricorn from Inkheart also had style, he couldn't stand having his image marred or out of skew. And honestly so very many Disney villain. We need them allllll!!! He would have never turned villain on his own, ya know? If the Heroic Sacrifice was pre-planned, it's a Self-Sacrifice Scheme. Love this! I think I already knew Murtagh has a big arc, so not a spoiler at all. *grins* I can’t wait until you get to meet them too. Plus I love me some time travel-y stuff SO YES. As for characters which are scary but don't qualify for this trope, you will likely find them under Reluctant Monster, Non-Malicious Monster or Ugly Hero, Good-Looking Villain. Copyright 2021 @ Christine Smith | OceanWP Theme, Doofensmirtz in the chaotic evil category but…I don’t even know if he really. Sometimes fictional villains are just way too fun! But you offered cookies so of course I couldn't help myself! LOL. IT’S MY FAVORITE SHOW OF ALL TIME. Heh, we should start a Kingdom Hearts campain and build the fandom! Along with not making a lot of his money square, his, A bizzare adaptational inversion to this is John C. Rockerduck. Alternatively, their desired ends are evil, but they are far more ethical or moral than most villains and they thus use fairly benign means to achieve it, and can be downright heroic on occasion. At first appearances they seem cool and collected, but deep under the surface there’s a chilling madness driving them. (Seriously, what do they put in Gotham’s water supply???) I mean, not just with villains, but like…anytime. ALL OF THEM. To piggyback on the reluctant villain, let’s slide right into one of my FAVORITES. There is such a number of ways these people chose the dark side—from less-than-helpful counselors who nudged them that way, to maybe the protagonist wronging them, to the Big Bad actually making a good point, to just, hey, the dark side has cookies why shouldn’t I be over there??? and this has been so much fun discussing all the villains! Disney does have a knack for stylin’ villains and it’s great! It’s true. Extra bonus points if they go from good to bad to good again. Like, I knew it was going to happen, but at the same time I still believed it wouldn’t. Fun fact: BBC’s Morgana was my inspiration for my villain before I even knew who she was, because of that smirk. *grins*, Awesome awesome awesome! Who might be on the hero’s side at one moment and then not? And VILLAINS. These villains are especially fun because you can’t predict what they’re going to do next. And, also, you mentioned so many stories that I love (I still really need to see Merlin…..). XDD. Totally one of my favourites, even as a kid I never hated him because he was just too funny. Their desired ends are good, but their means of getting there are evil. OH OH. Same, same! THANK YOU, M’DEAR! Also mad laughing, there is a lot of mad laughing involved. Alternatively, their desired ends are evil, but they are far more ethical or moral than most villains and they thus use fairly benign means to achieve it, and can be downright heroic on occasion.

Basically, it is about a good guy who ends up having to try and role-play a villain. *sniffles* OH. Snark+ Flare+ Betraying everyone who exists but himself= THE BEST CINNAMON ROLL EVER. He was indeed chaotically evil! But swaggering, sassy villains? The hero-to-villain trope is such an interesting exploration of character. , YAAAAY!!! This is the primary arc in many a Tragedy, which usually ends with the death of the hero-turned-villain as its source of audience catharsis. From what little I know I already love Zuko and that gif! The heroic character may become a Morality Pet, and can be fairly certain that their villainous admirer will never harm them or allow harm to come to them, barring certain exceptions. I still need to read The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes!!! #Ifyouknowyouknow #butmaybeIdidn’twanttoknow #sobs That ending was so…heartless. And, well, ALL these tropes. In a nutshell, a villain who is iconically evil and represents a certain sin deep down, who deceives the heroes to further his own ends, is essential to the heroes' Character Development, and is defeated iconically in a super-dramatic final battle, usually due to his own flaws. And alternatively, hero-to-villain… is just really depressing, so I kind of ignore that one. Although I never really considered him a villain since he was being brainwashed.

Thank you, Jesus, for, How did you do with your 2020 goals? However they got to their title of villain, it really wasn’t their choice but they can’t seem to find a way out.

And Minato is also older than his last opponent, Tobi, There's the Legendary Pokémon Mew and its clone Mewtwo from. I just typed in “villain gif” or something like that in Google and got that one. He has a well-rounded skill set. MY. A Friend in Need often requires it. Although he didn’t exactly intrigue me. LIKE THANOS THE JERKFACE. So glad you enjoyed it! I’m only like…4 episodes in, but I’m really liking it so far! BUT if they’re well written they can be a blast! I will forever be bitter we didn’t get a movie with Loki helping the Avengers and shall pout about it to my dying day. She was going to do it. My goodness, so many chaotically evil beings out there. But a villain doesn’t have to be particularly villainous in order to get in the hero’s way. AXEL FITS HERE TOO. Oh goodness, yes!
