So... You're saying the Choas Gods are less villainous than their subordinates? Maybe. Darth Vader was never scary in the original trilogy. And I saw that as a kid. He used the usual bullying tactics in Rogue One and wasn't scary. It wasn't til those final moments when he showed what he was capable of, well it wasn't scary per Se, but I'd be running from him.Silentpony said:A good villain? Like, to have a truly terrifying villain you really don't want to be able to identify with them, or understand them, or relate with them.Casual Shinji said:What villain doesn't have a point?
A guy who just goes around stealing money, because he wants money, when you also want money, isn't really a villain. Even if he kills people, he's just a dick. Just willing to push a little more.
A truly great villain would be like a Lovecraftian horror or a hell daemon. Something that skins babies alive, and eats people whole, and enslaves entire worlds, boiling entire races alive at once, blasts planets from the skies. Something evil you couldn't possibly comprehend, let alone go 'Well to be fair, those babies were crying too much'
Like a 40k Bloodthirster will always make a better villain than any Marvel anti-hero or Anime kinda emo prince, because what a Bloodthirster does is truly villainous, not just the wrong thing does for the right reasons or the right thing done wrongly.
I don't know if that really falls into either category. More like do rather than say.
OP: Caeser from NV. Pity that his tribe was nothing like what he was talking about. It's like they created Caeser for a different game but realised that they had the same name and could just slap him in. Really breaks the immersion and understanding and his view
