The villain archetype is one of my favorite parts of any story. The villain, to me, is the most important part of a story. If the villain, or antagonist, of a story is poorly done, then the entire story falls flat. The villain creates the conflict, and conflict is what separates a good story, from a great one. There are the villains made from tragedy, others are made from traumatic childhoods, and others are just evil to be evil.
The Princess and the Frog is about a hardworking and humble girl named Tiana who dreams about one day owning her own restaurant. There’s a twist to this when she meets Prince Naveen when he is in the form of a frog because of the shadow man Dr. Facilier. Since she has a nice ball gown on when they meet, Naveen mistakes her for a princess and thinks that if he kisses her, it will break the spell and he will turn back into a man. This doesn’t happen, however. Instead, Tiana turns into a frog and this starts an adventure as they travel to find the voodoo priestess who can break the spell.
In Mark Twain’s story, “The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” a competition is held between a stranger who makes his way into town and Jim Smiley was a gambler and was always prepared to place a wager; he did not care which side he gambled on and he consistently came out the champion. In accordance to the narrator, he was fortuitous, “uncommon lucky.” One afternoon a foreigner arrived in town and Jim, as usual, wanted to put up a wager against him; Jim bet that his frog, Dan’l, could trounce any frog in Calaveras County. The foreigner did not possess a frog, so, Jim went off to locate a frog for the stranger with the intent of winning, like he was accustomed to. While Jim was retrieving the frog and without his knowledge, the
My Element villain's name is plutonumous and his main element is plutonium. I decided to pick plutonium out of all the elements of the periodic table because it is known to be the most dangerous element and that's what villains are “dangerous”. My villain looks really generous, brilliant and strong since he is covered with layers of plutonium as well as plutonium in his veins this is done to his advantage because plutonium has a very high melting point so he could go through fire without being hurt, he also has really big eyes that glow green to make him look scary they become red depending on his mood, he has normal mouth since that doesn't really grant him any advantages however he's got really big ears so his hearing could be very precise
The Oxford Dictionary defines a villain as a “person or thing responsible for specified problems, harm, or damage.” By the end of section two of “American Born Chinese,” the Monkey King has become a villain in such a way that his new priority has become to convince other Gods that he is preeminent. The Monkey King chooses to go about this by any means necessary, including bullying other Gods until they capitulate. For example, in the beginning of the story, the narrator talks about how “the Monkey King rulers with a firm but gentle hand” (10). However, by section two we see images of the Monkey King beating others and seeking for any tactic he can muster to rule over everyone (66).
Transformations of the Male and Female tales The “Beauty and the Beast” tales have male and female transformation versions, but the way the transformations happen are slightly dissimilar. The tales of “The Pig King,” “The Frog King,” and “The Frog Princess” their spouses have to perform certain tasks in order to transform. In “The Pig King” and “The Frog King” the girls had to look past the ugliness of the beast but to the kindness of their hearts to break the spell and transform into a prince: as in “The Frog Princess” transformation the prince had to prove himself to her.
Films are reflective of cultural values, with each genre representing a different facet. The Western genre is perhaps the most iconic; fueled by masculinity and valor, with smoking guns, dashing heroes, and wicked villains, watching these films is an exciting experience. Beneath their dramatic, riveting surface, is a compelling narrative form, upheld by numerous authors over the past hundreds of years. The basic form of the western involves a hero, a villain, and a woman. With the villain always as an amoral scoundrel and the rest of the cast as virtuous and noble citizens, their roles are clearly cut.
Hundreds of frogs’ body parts were scattered across the murky pond. What kind of monster could have done such a thing? The scene displayed seemed inexplicable. Sure, Mouse had complained that life at the pond was monotonous, but he hadn’t wanted… this. It was inhumane; luckily, Detective Mouse Cop was on the case.
When asked "Who do you think is the best villain of all time?", you probably wouldn’t reply with gremlins. Well I'm here to tell you that you're wrong when you say that they're not evil. These goblin-like creatures from the 1984 movie "Gremlins" are the outcome of when an alien experiment to make a universal peace ambassador eats after midnight. Gremlins prove to be evil by literally having no feelings and their destructive behavior. Some may argue for Gizmo's sake but I'll talk more about that later One reason I believe that gremlins are the best villains is that they literally have no feelings.
A villain is a character whose evil actions or motives are important to the plot. To manipulate others is to control or influence someone or a situation cleverly or unfairly. In the play The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller, Abigail portrays exactly that. Abigail and her friends are accused of witchcraft. She is selfish, manipulative, and a liar.
George was a murder, abusive, crazy man who made the world go round. George is considered a villain in The Great Gatsby due to his abuse he causes to the people he “loves”. In chapter 8 of the story George goes to Gatsby's house with a revolver. He shoots Gatsby killing him, then pulls the trigger on himself. This is an obvious reason to why he can be considered a villain.
