Newsflash! Everyone you love is actually an arsehole, as Reddit asks the question: ‘Which ‘Good’ Character Is Actually a Horrible Person?’
You can check out the whole thread here, but below are some highlights:
Just because hes actually on the good side doesn’t mean all those times he acted creepy and acted like a cunt (especially to harry) just magically go away.
Saying that, most of the main characters are annoying, If I were a random kid in hufflepuff or something I’d be so done with their shit.
Everyone from any romantic comedy ever.
-Destroys priceless ancient pottery by rolling into it.
-Kills everybody in her way.
-Kills endangered tigers.
-A tomb raider is essentially a grave robber.
Edit: And killed the last living T-Rex.
Edit Edit: And locked her butler in a freezer.
Renegade Shepard from Mass Effect 1-3. I love how he goes from “lose cannon bad cop that gets the job done in ME1 to “Genocidal maniac” in ME3.
They kept having to up his asshole stakes. In 1, you can punch out that scared scientist in the first mission, which is kinda what an asshole cop would do. In 3, he can SHOOT MORDIN IN THE BACK FOR TRYING TO DO WHAT SHEPARD TOLD HIM TO DO WHILE DOOMING A RACE OF SPACE RHINO FROGS AND LYING ABOUT IT. Kinda a big leap.
Steve Urkell now would be considered a stalker and serial killer in the making.
Tigger. The idiot wrecked Eeyore’s house and sings about how great he is. The only good thing about him, as he says, is that he’s the only one. There are no more of him.
Peppa pig is a horrible brat and a bully.
My favourite scene is when she calls Suzie Sheep on the phone to ask if she can whistle (because Peppa can’t) and when Suzie whistles Peppa just hangs up on her without saying anything.
The good witch from wizard of oz
Piper Chapman from Orange is the new black
Lily (Alyison Hannigan) in How I Met Your Mother.
I would say all of the characters from HIMYM except Marshall. He’s the only one who is willing to go out of his way to make the world a better place while the others are content with being, at best, totally self-absorbed, and at worst, downright evil.
Does Old Testament God count. Because he was savage af.
“Go to this village, and kill everything that lives.”
“OK. We killed all the men, women and children.”
“We let some of the livestock live.”
“YOU DID WHAT?!”
I hear folks romanticizing her and her relationship with Rhett like “oh I want a love like that!” Bitch were you even paying attention? Scarlett is a raging asshole who cheerfully and willfully destroys the lives of people around her just because they’re not her so fuck ‘em who cares. She’s so heavily damaged that she can’t see anything good in her life, all she can focus on is what she doesn’t have and it becomes an all consuming need to get that thing, which is then discarded the second she gets it. And Rhett isn’t much better, because he thinks Scarlett’s inability to care about anyone but herself is great and encourages it at all times, but then, when she doesn’t care about him either he gets furious about it. It’s not a switch you can flip on and off Rhett, and she needs therapy, not encouragement.
Gone with the Wind is a fantastic book and I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read it, but Scarlett is one of the biggest assholes in literature and her relationship isn’t something to be admired
Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a son of a bitch that bullies his friends to satisfy his own personal agenda.
Anna from Frozen. Literally everything bad that happens (except the parents situation) happens because of her pushing things too far. First, she keeps jumping when Elsa tells her to stop and it leads to the first “accident”, which leads to Elsa being isolated, worsening her condition. Then she takes Elsas glove and keeps badgering her in front of everyone, causing Elsa to lose control of her emotions and freeze everything. Then when she goes to see Elsa in the ice castle, Elsa keeps telling her to leave her alone, and even though Elsa is clearly so upset that she’s causing a blizzard to appear inside, Anna keeps at it, causing Elsa to accidentally strike her. Plus she’s the one that introduced Hans to the whole situation.
Sure, she redeems herself at the end, but the entire issue is her fault from the get go.
Caillou, fuck that whiny little shit.
I had to scroll WAY TO FAR to find this little bitch boy.
I refuse to let my kids watch that insufferable little turd. Get some real problems you bald pudgy fuck.
Not sure if horrible is the right word, but he’s definitely no saint. James, your dad from Fallout 3.
- He is directly responsible for your friend’s death and put the entire vault at risk by leaving abruptly.
- He never tells you his plans, and doesn’t even seem to know you.
- He tries to guilt trip you into helping him finish his life’s work. And criticizes you for disarming the Megaton bomb. If you decide to blow up the town, his opinion of you changes in no way at all.
- Even though you rescued him, he orders you around like you owe him money. He basically strips you of your agency.
Dany in Game of Thrones seems to be everybody’s favorite, but it’s impossible to ignore that she’s starting a war, during which thousands will die, in order to obtain a throne she deems “her birthright” despite
1) The land was conquered by her ancestors. They didn’t have a right to take it.
2) Her family was legitimately ousted because the last Targaryen was such a bastard.
She has no claim to the throne beyond “I have the means to take it”. She has even less of a claim that Cersei does, who is a bitch, but we can’t pretend as though Dany would just leave if it was revealed Cersei was a good person. She also freed slaves, but nobody in Westeros likes slaves anyway, she’s doesn’t really possess radical ideas.
She’s interesting because she’s clawed her way up from almost nothing to a powerful Queen, and that’s cool and all, but I really want her to be the final villain in the show. It would be so interesting if she was.
