Villains are usually the evil characters in stories. They usually are motivated by something bad, like making lots of money, getting rid of people they don’t like, or taking over the world. A villain, or supervillain if part of a comic book universe, often appears as the nemesis of a hero or superhero in a book or a film. They represent the evil agency in a story and show how people can be swayed from good to evil, and from evil to good. Sometimes stories show that villains are only human, and become villains because they are the victims of unfortunate circumstances. Examples of villains include Voldemort in Harry Potter, Professor Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes, and Cruella De Vil in 101 Dalmatians. All are pretty bad.

What are the qualities of a villain?

A villain adds contrast to a story and often battles the hero. The general qualities that a villain has are that they believe they’re the good guy, have likable qualities, and are an opponent that make the hero look good. Villains are typically clever, accomplished, respected by society, and have many of the same characteristics of the hero but are misdirected. They are also merciless, persuasive, proud, deceitful, vengeful, and are jealous of the hero.

What qualities make a great antagonist?

Qualities of a great antagonist are that they are driven by a goal, have relatable character flaws, are loyal to a cause, family, or ally, and adapt easily to obstacles. They also often have a secret information they are withholding from everyone, superior intelligence or strength, and create feelings of distrust. Antagonists are characters that stand in opposition to the protagonist of the story and share some of the same traits as the protagonist.

Are all villains evil?

Some villains are not entirely evil, but have good intentions. Some of these villains are Venom, Loki, and Magneto. They often save civilians, protect their families, or are victims. Villains also believe they are doing the best for society, as they are not truly evil and want to accomplish something that seems right to them. If a villain is evil or not depends on the perspective of the observer.

Chestbursters
Height comparison diagram of Chestbursters compared to other xenomorphs

A Chestburster is an evolutionary stage of the Xenomorph, the extraterrestrial species found by the crew of the Nostromo in Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise. The Facehugger is contained in an Ovomorph until it senses a potential host nearby. It hatches and attaches itself to the host, implanting an organism which later bursts through the host’s chest, ripping them apart.  The Chestburster typically grows to become an adult Xenomorph. Its development is then dependent on the host’s characteristics, but they usually have a muscular shell-like body, elongated domed heads and a long, curving tail.

Chestbursters have an upright height of 10” (25.4 cm) and an overall length of roughly 3’6” (106.7 cm).

Dracula
Drawings with labeled height of Dracula in poses ranging from the front, side, and with an open cape

Dracula, a vampire spawned from the imagination of Bram Stoker and the namesake of his 1897 novel, is the most iconic vampire of all time. The story of Dracula and some of his key characteristics became the basis for a whole genre of literature and films to come. Dracula is a vampire that lives Transylvania, but moves to England to partake in his favorite activity of blood sucking and spreading the undead curse. Once in England, however, he is hunted by a group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Dracula is the basis for Nosferatu, an illegal adaptation of the story due to violations of copyright laws that the studio tried to avoid by slightly altering the story.

Dracula is popularly depicted at 6 foot 4 inches (1.93 m) tall, but was originally portrayed by Bela Lugosi in Dracula (1931) at 6 foot 1 inch (1.85 m) tall.
