How do you feel about characters with "good" and "evil" sides/forms, or characters that are the "good"/"evil" side of another character?

It depends how it's done but it can be pretty cool. Adds a physical presence to a side of a character's personality Some personal faves I can think of off the top of my head are monster series like Digimon (i.e. Guilmon's forced digivolution) and Pokemon, the Sonic franchise, shonen like Bleach, and even Berserk where the Berserker suit reflects his giving in to the tempation of blind bloodlust. I think generally if they have particular meaning I find they can be very memorable and effective. If it's just for the sake of it, they can come across as silly.

I don't get what you mean by "good and evil sides/forms".

Sometimes they're entertaining but it's such an overused concept that I just... usually can't get into it anymore.

I personally think the concept itself needs a good story to work, rather than the thing itself being the "story"!

I really like them if they are done correctly.

Totally off topic but omg you have Asperger's? My best friend, as well as a somewhat new friend, have Asperger's. :D

Sorry that was way off but I thought it was cool lol

I think they're alright as long as they're not stereotypical as hell.
Okami isn't perfect and Kurokami isn't totally bad, plus the latter represents my depression, so it actually has more sense than the overseen "iz bad cuz it iz!", imho xD

True! And in case of Okami and Kurokami I think it's fine.

I dont mind them,I have one,and its more of a demon/side she doesnt want but has to cope with it.But she doesnt jump from one side to another,I dont like those characters.

Some times,that type of 'She turns evil and hurts another character and turns back imediatly and runs of hoping no one follows them', as that type draws to much attention to their character. I dont mind those who keeps their character balanced,or those who cant HELP turning evil such as werewolfs and vampires.
