He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
Nero’s qualities had frightened everybody. He wanted to kill those who thought may be better that him. During his rule, Nero murdered his own mother, Agrippina the younger, his first wife, Octavia, and allegedly, his second wife, Poppaea Sabina. In 59 AD, Nero’s mistress suggested to kill his mother. The reason why he got his mother killed was because she was plotting to kill him.
Caesar’s death divided the Roman Republic. Some citizens, like Brutus and Cassius, believed that Caesar had to die if the Roman Republic was to remain. Other citizens, like Mark Antony, believed that Caesar had been murdered before he had accomplished his greatest contributions to society. This difference in opinion, first expressed during the funeral orations for Caesar, spread throughout Roman society, leading to civil wars and the eventual fall of the Republic. Hundreds of years later, Shakespeare dramatized the events around Caesar’s death.
Now iconized by famous Hollywood actors who charge into the arena with pride and determination, this image does not accurately represent all of the Gladiators from the Roman Empire. Some competed for their freedom and pride, but many were prisoners of war, criminals, or slaves who were forced to compete (“The Roman”). Some Gladiators fought against each other while others competed in venationes, “wild beast hunt,” where a Gladiator fought against a hungry animal (“Gladiator”). The crowd became known for its enjoyment of violence. Typically, a Gladiator would look to the crowd for the final decision on whether to kill the losing opponent or let him live (“Gladiator”).
According to Schwartz (1992), later in Dahmer’s confession he said, “he killed his victims to prevent them from leaving”. He would attempt to turn some victims into zombies by drilling holes in their skulls and pouring acid on their brains to try to keep them around longer. Schwartz (1992) stated that Dahmer had no social skills to develop relationships of any form, so he relied on corpses. After being caught and evaluated by many psychiatrists, Dahmer was deemed as not legally insane but just a sick person with a severe antisocial personality disorder. George Palermo, one of the psychiatrist testified that “Jeffrey Dahmer killed these people .
Caesar might have died but shortly after his death he became the scapegoat in the new Roman Empire. A clan of lower and bourgeois Romans huddled at Caesar’s funeral with the furious crowd ambushing and besieging the homes of Cassius and Brutus, the culprits who murdered Julius. Fun fact: Although most people assume that the Caesar Salad is named after Julius Caesar, it isn’t. The Caesar Salad legend is from the creation of the recipe to an Italian immigrant also known as Caesar Cardini.
Killing animals also means killing the food chain that they were involved in. Trophy hunting is one of the main causes the disruption of the food chain. The food chain consists of one animal eating from another and that leading to the cycle. Hunters killing these animals interrupt the whole process in the cycle. Picture this having a baby but then the baby dies, nothing happens afterwards in result.
The ancient Roman idea of sport was horrible. The ancient Romans enjoyed people fighting to the death. The Romans could see these fights at the huge coliseum or at an amphitheater, which is like a stadium. Most gladiators, who were the people that fought in the coliseum and amphitheater, had no choice but to fight since they were criminals, prisoners, and sometimes slaves. If a gladiator were a man convicted of murder before he became a gladiator, he would have to fight with his hands against a man with a sharp weapon.

The Viking ruler would also put his rivals to death by preforming blood eagles on them, cutting the back of the ribs from the spine making the ribs fling up and ripping the skin and making it look like the person look like they had wings. The Vikings slaughtered thousands of innocent and plenty of guilty people of all kinds of ages. In the line of chiefs the Vikings had, it was not uncommon
Therefor, Alexander followed up on that plan and conquered Persia. But for the other lands, they were conquered for the reason of trying to be the best and conquer the most lands. Alexander ended up killing about anyone who got in his way, which totals up to 250,000 killed people in his lifetime.This makes him a villain because more than half the people that were killed, were completely innocent and didn’t deserve to be
If terrorism is wrong, why is big game trophy hunting right? Big game trophy hunting is the killing of animals for the fun of it and displaying it for others or themselves to see. Large animals are killed in the process of ‘show and tell’ and not given a second thought, after doing so. Big game hunting is unethical because it depletes animal populations and results in unnecessary death. Trophy hunting has many proponents within.
