I haven't written any yet, partly due to us still talking over plans for season six.^^; But I do see your point too. Not every single villain needs to be so obvious when it comes to being evil. After all, MCF is also meant to be a mystery series so part of the fun should be figuring out who the villain is, or rather, seeing how the character learn based on if a person is familiar with the series the character comes from.

Yeah...rhe think the "mystery" thing has kinda faded into the background though..nowadays it's just crossover case files.

None. In honesty, I like writing the obvious villains cause they're fun to write and Jessy, PixarGirl and Amanda do have a point each. I will balance it out though.

And...I accept your challenge.

They're not fun..they're boring. You can easily replace a villain whose already obviously evil with wither obvious villain; they're all the same.

Nope. None.

Granted, do you really think them doing the Disney Villain reveal that Disney has been doing that since Wreck It Ralph and most people are getting sick of it after THIRD or FOURTH TIME would be any better? I mean yeah in real life people aren't always easily able to see sociopaths as, well, sociopaths.

Hell this is a checklist of Psychopathic/Sociopathic traits: www.sociopathicstyle.com/psych…

Some of them include:

Superficial glib and charm
Lack of realistic, long term goals
Many short-term marital relationships
Need for simulation/ prone to boredom
Parasitic Lifestyle

Yeah...to be honest, I'd rather there'd be more complex villains rather than straight up "I'm evil for no reason other than being evil and I'll make no attempt to hide it"

Honestly, if they want us to take the dark arc serious, they need to introduce more less obviously evil villains as well. They can't keep having five seasons fill like MLP and Disney.

Um.... I'm currently drawing out my OCs during my free time, but I seriously want to ask something.

Do the villains from my stories/what I have so far are obviously evil?

No, no. It's fine. I wanted someone to tell me that.

I mean, people use obviously evil villains most of the time and it really depends on the story you're trying to tell.

In my opinion, we shouldn't have majority of the villains be obviously evil. Which is why I'm going to try drawing and developing the other OC antagonists that I was planning and see how to change them.


But I need some help.

If you have the time, could you give me a list of types of villains to start out with so I could categorize the villains I have so far?

Okay...

Well...maybe start off with obvious villains at first but then at the seasons progresses,maybe the villains should be less obvious and more subtle, kinda like how Hans was in Frozen
