Hottest VG Villain

Postby Friday » Tue Feb 14, 2017 9:42 pm

Hey guys, remember when I was known for running wolfgames and not the Poll Tournament Queen?

So, here we go. The rules:

1. The character must originate from a videogame. You can't use Doc Ock because he was in some Spider-Man video game. I might allow exceptions if the villain originated in something else but became well-known because of a game.

2. The character must be a -villain-, not an anti-hero, antagonist, or a space flea that shows up at the last minute, and not Magus.

3. Speaking of Magus, Magus is the line. I'm not allowing Magus into the running because I do not consider him a villain. Delita and Jowy would be characters just on the other side of the line; they're similar to Magus in that they're antagonists, but they go from helpful allies to pretty evil despite their high minded ideals. I know this is going to cause contention with people because so many characters ride the line, but that's my feelings on it.

4. It's got to be a at least somewhat developed character. Because of this, most of these characters are going to be from RPGs. JENOVA probably qualifies; as though she's a space flea, she doesn't show up at the last minute, but she's not really a character.

5. It's fine if your villain is sympathetic! Kuja turns out to be somewhat sympathetic, but he's still firmly a villain. They don't have to be pure evil, they just have to be willing to *be* evil to accomplish their goals. Again, Magus probably qualifies, but he goes from villain to ally. If your character *gets better* during the game, no go.

6. Villains who are primarily comedic are a no. I love Ultros just as much as you and he'd probably win this poll, but he's not a serious villain. That being said, it's okay if your villain is a little wonky/funny as long as they're not present primarily for laughs.

Bowser is definitely under "a little wonky/funny but mostly serious" so it's fine.

Is this a shorter way to write "Vega (in Japan)/M. Bison (in America)"?

Fighting game community has used the shorthands Dictator, Boxer and Claw for decades just to avoid people getting into arguments/getting confused about who is being referenced.

(And then people try to start fights anyway with shit like "Vega isn't actually a national leader" and "Vega sometimes doesn't have a claw".)

The correct response to these arguments is a psycho crusher followed by a call to pledge your fucking allegiance to Shadaloo.

Is saying the big bad from Final Fantasy XV too much into recent spoiler territory? Because I really like him, her, it, or they.

Well its face is right the fuck on a bowl of Cup Noodles telling you that it's the villain, but I suppose you can avoid seeing that. Eh.
