So a while back I made two articoli about my preferito villains and why I like them specifically but what about the bad guys just makes them so enticing for me? Heck I may have even typed up an articolo like this before, but with a years later with a new perspective, alongside an updated lista of my superiore, in alto 25 fictional villains, I decided that it's time to reveal why I like the bad guys so much.

Top 25

Some of them are refromed o simply played an antagonistic role but are not super evil. Won't state which ones are reformed because spoilers.

1. Azula (Avatar)
2. Regina Mills (Once Upon A Time)
3. Bellatrix Lestrange (Harry Potter)
4. Nerissa (W.i.t.c.h)
5. Icy (Winx)
6. Isabella Gisborne (BBC's Robin Hood)
7. Kuvira (Korra)
8. Lust (Full Metal Alchemist)
9. Morgause (BBC's Merlin
10. Ming Hua (Korra)
11. Beatrice (Umineko)
12. Nehelenia (Sailor Moon)
13. Jadis (Narnia)
14. James Sawyer (Lost)
15. Zuko (Avatar)
16. Envy (Full Metal Alchemist)
17. Dracula (Van Helsing)

22. Zancrow (Fairy Tail)
23. Cora (Once Upon A Time)
24. Zelena (Once Upon a Time)
25. Phobos (W.i.t.c.h.)

The Why's

First and foremost I feel like 9/10 times, at least for me personally, the villains are always the most interesting and intriguing characters in the show/movie/book o wherever other medium you're looking at. For me they are the life blood of the mostra really.

But where does this allure come from? For me it comes in that fictional villains offer a look at the darkest side of human nature. They can get away with such despicable acts that people would never normally condone. Not only can they get away with it, but some people actually enjoy these heinous acts committed with in the world of fiction. For example; *Spoiler* Bellatrix killing Sirius and skipping away in song. People (who weren't fan of Sirius) *End of spoiler* laughed at her little song.

Hell, I'd say for some people liking villains can even a release. I myself am a very quite, keeps-to-myself kind of person if te don't know me. Which is why strangers are surprised to hear me announce in class that I tend to like the antagonists. I feel as though me liking the baddies is a sort of expression of my dark side in a sense. And I feel like that's much healthier than embracing my dark side in other ways.

Going back to Bellatrix's method of killing Sirius, evil characters seem to offer so much room for a different kind of creativity. A twisted kind of creativity. Bella is a grown woman who acts like a child and practically sees murder as a game. How about the Saw movies. There are just so many ways to kill off a character and it's darkly fascinating to see what the autore can come up with; how he/she molds his o her character to fit the types of crimes he/she is committing.

So then we come to motives. It's also loads of fun to see the villains' motives. What makes him o her tick? *Spoiler* Jigsaw was a man with a terminal illness, one that caused him to attempt suicide, which caused him to become fascinated with the human survival instinct. He wanted people to learn to not take life for granted. *End of Spoiler This creates for a very insanely cool motive. What about Voldemort, a man who believed that purging all muggle borns & half bloods was the way to go despite being one himself. o the kind of villain that truly believes that he/she is in the right like Kuvira who simply didn't want her people to feel abandoned like she was. There are just so many possible motivations to work with and it's pleasurable to see how a good motivation with a terrifying execution method o the other way around, plays out. It's fun to see what kind of motivations can come into play and how the villain goes about achieving his o her desire.

This line of thought ties very easily into the sympathy aspect. Some bad guys just have/had it so rough te can't not feel a little bad. Take Regina for instance; *Spoiler* all this woman wanted was her true love. But because she saved little Snow White, her mother ripped her lover's cuore out and crushed it. It was all down collina from there and she went on a vengeance spree that lasted well over 28 years. *End of Spoilers o how about Azula and Zuko. Both of the royal siblings were royally screwed over da their parents in one way o another. Zuko was physically abused and Azula--sucked dry of all normal social functioning--was pretty much turned into a weapon/political tool for her father to use at his disposal. o Isabella who was more spoilers sold da her brother, Guy, to a man who abused her physically and sexually. *End of Spoiler* All the woman wanted was an apology she never got. That not sympathetic enough? Morgause is an example of a villainess who thought she was in the right; in a land where her kind (the magical beings) were being persecuted *Spoiler* (she was ordered to be killed off as an infant) *is done spoiling* she wanted to kill the man doing the persecuting. Basically she just wanted to protect what remained of her kin. Frankly I thought the good guys behaved più like the bad guys in BBC's Merlin.
Anyhow, examples aside, villains are perhaps the most sympathetic characters. And for that they really draw me in.

This kind of sympathy makes the evil guys and gals complex. And of curse is just one of many ways of creating a complex villain. But that's the successivo point; for me the baddies are always the most complex characters. And complexity and depth are super important in a character. Because of the vast many motivations and the sympathy and the rest, there is just so much room to craft up such a well-built character.

But what about the villains that don't have elaborate back stories o motivations? Can they still be cool? I'd say of course. Bellatrix doesn't really have much of a backstory but her dark humor and quirky personality makes her a villain that is still just as enjoyable as the well-rounded characters like Regina and Azula.
With characters like, Icy it's fun to make up stories and fanfictions explaining why she does the evil she does since the creator doesn't really give her any back story o motivations. But if you're not a fan of doing that can a character like Icy be enjoyable? Again, I'd say yes. Sometimes it's just fun to watch a character who is an asshole (and let's face it, Icy's an asshole...so is Sawyer but that's getting off topic) just to be an asshole. Which for me plays back into the release of one's inner darkness.

So again, referencing back to Bellatrix and her dark humor; that's another reason why I tend to prefer the evil characters. They own the gallows humor. Minus Deadpool (if te can even call him one), Heroes can't work that dark humor in quite the way that villains do. I mean we wouldn't laugh if Harry dropped a 'dead Sirius' joke (we'd probably think he's heartless), but Bellatrix could get away with it because she's Bellatrix. Sweeny Todd & Nellie Lovett are two più villains offer some dark humor. I mean we have a woman Canto about cooking people into pies and a man calling his razors 'my friends'. And musically so. Only in theater does murder get musical. Only in fiction are we allowed to laugh at it. This dark humor can also help viewers cope with unpleasant situations da helping them poke fun at the situation itself.

On the other end te can have humor villains like Kronk from the Emperor's New Groove o Team Rocket from Pokemon. The kind of bad guys that make te laugh but not necessarily with gallows humor. Like when Kronk begins to speak squirrel. That's genuinely fun and light-hearted humor. Except it's from a villain, which makes it all the funnier. These kinds of villains prove that an autore doesn't have to go full on 100% dark to create a likable villain.

How about the good guys who turn bad o the bad guys who turn good. It's simply interesting to watch them evolve and transform. Spoiler Take Isabella for example, she went from good to bad then to a più neutral postion and then bad again. End of spoilers That was a real adventure IMO. What about characters like Nerissa who turned bad before her series began. That's also a fun one because te get to try to figure out the why's before they are answered in canon. Any time te get to see a character develop is neat.

And finally the villains hold the plot together. Even if te are an avid villain hater te gotta give kudos to them for allowing the series to happen. I mean what's the point of Harry Potter if Voldemort isn't trying to murder him? Sure a view of his wizarding world is fun for a while but I wouldn't read 7 libri on just a boy attending a magical school with no problems. What's the point of watching The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe if the witch is missing? Then it's just a lion and a wardrobe and a lamp. The villains give the plot action, Amore them o hate them, they keep the plot moving and the shows/books te Amore alive.

So there ya have it people a lista of terrible people, like actual trash, that I happen to Amore and the reasons why I tend to obsess over those assholes. :D

20 Things To Do In A Drive Through Lane

1. Stand close to the speaker and yell your order, using colorful expletives in ways which would embarrass the patrons inside.

2. Drive through backwards.

3. Belch your order.

4. After ordering, cover the speaker and mic with transparent tape. Watch as customers and order-takers are unable to hear each other and, thus, each raises his/her volume.

5. Barter. Offer a Whopper for a Big Mac.

6. Walk through.

7. Speak a foreign language (make one up if te have to). When the manager comes to the mic, speak English and inquire as to why the order taker had such difficulty...
