Virtuous traits shape a man when they are moderately demonstrated, but extreme manifestations of virtuous traits have the opposite effect.. Hassan’s loyalty is seen as noble, but the level to which he takes it makes him less of a man. Although society prizes loyalty above many other traits, it is not the end-all-be-all of qualities. Hassan exhibits
When you think of villains, you often think of the people you despise the most. They have done nothing to promote a stable society and do not have the characteristics of someone who you should trust and believe in. That is where most of us fail. Villains are not seen as harmful, until they are. They pretend to be someone they aren’t, and then once they have you hooked, they will turn on you and show their true colors.
This character will normally enter the story first. At that point enters the adversary. This character is ordinarily portrayed as the "awful fellow" or the "scoundrel. " Enemies are indeed captivating and convey an ethical clash to light, which subsequently puts our saint at a fork in an ethical street. These characters serve to show viewers wrong from right.

The traditional and Shakespearean tragedies place specific roles on its players. The tragic heroic and often titular character plays the role as the proverbial “good guy” while his or her opponent is often presented as the exact opposite in their appearance, actions, and motives. To wit, the inverted persona of the protagonist,the antagonist, carries out the role best simplified as “the bad guy.” These distinctive character archetypes are fulfilled in their classic formula in many classical and modern works, especially in regards to fables and children’s tales where the lines separating good and evil are clearly drawn. However, there are times when the moral center of a character is not so clear cut.
In many monster stories, there is not a single embodiment of evil, but rather the story reveals the capacity within each character for wickedness and virtue regardless of one’s ability to conform to societal norms. These stories challenge a reader to question his or her own definition of what constitutes a monster and to consider whether or not he or she could be labeled as such given previous behaviors. Through this process, “St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves” and Lilo and Stitch delineate intolerance and mistreatment of individuals who struggle to conform in a society. The definition of a monster that will be used in this paper is a character who claims a disposition in which he or she intends to cause another harm (emotionally or physically) under unfair or unjust motivations.
His use of examples of influential celebrities and textual evidence portrayed his ideology of villain actions in two different settings. He described a villain as one who hurts others through emotional manipulation by ridiculing one self’s image and reputation to gain relevance throughout the world. This is relatable to my point of view because of my personal cyber bullying story. Moreover, this led to another villain that steals materialistic objects to have a financial gain. Klosterman conveys his argument in a coherent way which allows me to connect with him in agreement with his definition of what a villain is.
A villain's attitude shows what kind of person they are, for instance, Hitler was not seen as a nice person by his peers nor anyone for that
In every Disney movie the villain is generally portrayed as evil or crazy, and it is taken as a personality type, but Disney movies also tend to sneak in a backstory for the villain geared towards explaining how they had come to be evil. And in the end, the villain is usually convinced that they should be “good” (again). So from this perspective, it may appear more so that the villain is not a personality type but a product of the situations they were in each moment that lead to he or she becoming the villain. Malcolm Gladwell is an award winning author who constructed a theory labeled The Power of Context, a chapter in his book The Tipping Point, to prove that people, such as villains in Disney movies, are products of their situations. In essence, to be a product of situations is to be a product of context.
Introduction Many psychologists and researchers have for many years tried to explain what makes normal human beings become evil and become perpetrators of evil. The study of a normal human being becoming a perpetrator of evil has almost become it’s own branch of psychology. There are many examples of evil actions in this world, which has led to a lot of research of the human mind; where evil is born. Hitler, Anders Breivik, and Jim Jones are just a few examples of the many evil human minds we have seen in this world. All people, who were thought to hold the same mindset as everyone else.
In this article, “Why We Love TV’s Anti-heroes,” the author Stephen Garrett argues that in today’s society our whole perspective of heroes has changed since the mid-twentieth century. Garrett is appealing to all American’s who love watching their favorite TV heroes and heroines. In addition, Garrett’s main focus is the fact today’s heroes entirely different from what the idea of a “hero” was two or three decades ago. The author relies on generally accepted ideas from the American public to base his main idea; he uses sources from popular TV shows and movies which have anti-heroes that draw the attention of their audience.
Villains and Revenge The Archetype Villains and Revenge is a description of people who become evil because of something that happened in their childhood or throughout their lives. These villains are only acting evil to get revenge on those who were cruel to them. This archetype is evident in the Odyssey when Poseidon, god of the sea, becomes a villain by disrupting Odysseus’ journey home. He delays Odysseus’ voyage to his homeland by years, and kills his entire crew.
The strongest villain we have encountered in literature thus far is Arnold Friend. Premiering in Joyce Carol Oates’ “Where are you going, where have you been,” Arnold Friend is inspired by a true story. In 1960, there was a man that preyed on young girls in Arizona, later called the “Pied Piper of Tucson.” Although this man wore obviously fake makeup and clothes, he befriended the young teenage girls with his charm and sweet talk. Similar to the real man, Arnold Friend is a character that talks his way out of every question he is asked by everyone. Arnold Friend is a man of deception, hiding behind his disguise as a teenage boy, whose charisma allows him to get what he wants.
Ewoks V.S. Polyphemus Imagine this: you land on Endor after barely escaping evil Empire and get trapped in a GIANT net, then you meet a tribe of living teddy bears, who try to cook and eat you. Or you land on an island after several days at sea, and meet a giant cyclops who then eats 6 of your crewmates and you barely escape. This is true villainy, because a villain is usually a cruelly malicious person who is involved in or devoted to wickedness or crime; scoundrel; or a character in a play, novel, or the like, who constitutes an important evil agency in the plot. Homer’s Polyphemus from the Odyssey and George Lucas’ Ewoks from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi fit this description exactly, but the Ewoks fit it better. Polyphemus, the strong, dumb, overconfident cyclops is a good villain, but then again vicious, smart, patient Ewoks are better.
Evil is a simple word that we learn at a young age and that we understand is bad. However, our youth and innocence prevents us from knowing the weight the word holds. As our understanding of evil develops, we begin to see evil all around us. Although we hold common societal definitions of evil, each person is bound to view evil slightly different from others. Someone might consider alcoholism evil, while others consider it normal: someone might believe racism is evil, while others believe it is natural.
