Who are these villains, anyway?
Note: Spoilers will probably follow, but I'll try to warn you just before, and hide (the best I can) them. A lot of them, I think, are probably just minor spoilers, but it's better safe than sorry.
- Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter
Why do I love Draco so much? Because he's so complex, of course! SPOILER ALERT FOR HARRY POTTER!!! HIGHLIGHT TO READ.I get it, the first 3/4 of the series, he was a complete and total jerk, but then in the end, the pressure was put on him to be this Bad Dude for the Deatheaters, and he didn't want to turn away from his parents; he wanted to please them, and he didn't know what to do. You could really see this struggle in the end of the series, and it made me love Draco as a great and complex character.
- Severus Snape from Harry Potter
- Peter from Divergent
- Caleb from Divergent
- Mr. Gold/Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon A Time
Basically, I, personally, love those antagonists that are unpredictable, changing sides, or are double agents. I love the not necessarily sympathetic antagonists, but those who never make it clear whose side they're really on. If they can keep me guessing, they're a great antagonist, in my opinion!
What about y'all? Do you guys agree with me? Disagree with me? What's your favorite type of antagonist?
