Villains: They’re not all created equal

In order for the good guy to shine, there has to be a bad guy. There has to be dark to emphasize the light. But just like good guys, not all bad guys are created equal. There are different levels and reasons for their madness.

The Selfish Villain

This guy is just a jerk. He’s out for himself and will do whatever he needs to do to get what he wants.

“Bring me the lamp. The rest of the treasure is yours but the lamp is mine.” – Jafar, Aladdin800px-Jafarhttp://sweatpantmafia.com/displayimage.php?album=6&pos=807

 

The Psycho Villain

He’s seriously messed up in the head. Whether he knows what he’s doing is right or wrong, we’re not sure and he doesn’t care.

“Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.” The Joker, The Dark Knight

The Unsure Villain

Are they good? Are they bad? You can never quite tell because they walk that line so carefully.

Look around you, we’re all liars here, and every one of us is better than you.“―Petyr BaelishLittlefingerheadshotpromo

Evil Villains

Evil. They’re just evil. You hate them and you can’t find one thing to excuse their actions.

The Forced Villain

They’re evil because they have to be. Usually to protect someone or something they love.

“Then you’re gonna need to fly a long way to get to the Guardians.” -Grimble, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’HooleGrimbleOwlsofGahooleCap

The Betrayed Villain

They started out good, or okay at least, but then they were betrayed. You can’t help but feel sorry for them and almost want to side with them. Especially when Tom Hiddleston portrays them.

“Trust my rage.” -Loki, Thor: The Dark World
