Transcript of The Villain Archetype

THE ARCHETYPE Villain Definition This is a classic archetype that is found in almost every story. Usually opposite of the hero, and stands out from other characters. The villain archetype represents sin. (Joe Banting, 2012). Audience doesn't like the villain. Also known as "the bad guy". Villain characteristics There are many characteristics of a villain. These characteristics are:
powerful (magical powers, control, wealth)
intelligent (usually ahead of hero)
wounded (physical or memtal
determined (nothing gets in their way)
( Drago, 2012 )

(Bunting, 2012)

( Tropes, [didn't say the year!]) POEM; "The Hero and The Villain" When you see a Hero,
what do you think of the Hero?
'The Hero is Amazing'
'The Hero saves lives'
'The Hero is a bad person, not even human.'
'He stinks and I don't like the hero.'

People love the hero,
they love the hero cause he saves lives,
they love him cause he protects the city,

Some people don't like the hero cause they are
the ones who do crime.

Crimes like murder, kidnapping, stealing, sell drugs,
rob banks..... but the person who hates the hero the
most..... is the Villain. ones who hate the Villain the most is the people,
the hero never takes a life, the hero doesn't hate the Villain, the hero wants to help the Villain.

The Villain knows he needs help, but the Villain Doesn't want help, the Villain has been through an emotional life, the villains hates everyone...

Everyone knows a Superhero story goes, the Villain ends up Dead..

Everyone must know this..

Sometimes all the Villains were once heroes..

You die a hero, or you live long enough to see
yourself become the Villain....
(Lopez, 2009) POEM: "The Hero and The Villain" pg 2 (Nintendo, 1999) (Nintendo, 1999) The narrator describes a villain in the poem "The Hero and The Villain" with many charachteristics of a villain archetype: Example 1-
"The Villain knows he needs help, but the Villain Doesn't want help,
the Villain has been through an emotional life"
(17-18) (Lopez, 2009) Connection 1-
This poem has a great example of the "wounded" villain. A lot of times, villains are wounded either mentally or physically. In this poem, we can tell that the villain was wounded mentally from their "emotional life" or a bad memory from the past. Example 2-
"but the person who hates the hero the
most..... is the Villain." "the villains hates everyone..."
(13-14, 18) (Lopez, 2009) Connection 2-
Another characteristic that shows in this poem is hate. These few lines prove how hateful villains are, they hate everyone? That is a lot of hate! Example 3-
"Crimes like murder, kidnapping, stealing, sell drugs,
rob banks....."
(12-13) (Lopez, 2009) Connection 3-
In these lines, they show some crimes that villains and other bad guys do. This shows how dangerous and selfish villains are, also it shows how villains represent sin! Example 4-
"but the person who hates the hero the
most..... is the Villain." "Everyone knows a Superhero story goes, the Villain ends up Dead.."
(13-14, 19) (Lopez, 2009) Connection 4-
In a lot of stories you read and movies you see, there is a hero and a villain that fight, usually at the climax. And almost all of the movies have a happy ending, which means that the villain loses and sometimes dies. This poem did a good job at explaining that. Example 5-
"People love the hero,
they love the hero cause he saves lives,
they love him cause he protects the city,"
"The ones who hate the Villain the most is the people,
the hero never takes a life, the hero doesn't hate the Villain, the hero wants to help the Villain."
(7-9, 15-16) (Lopez, 2009) Connection 5-
The biggest characteristic of the villain is how the villain is always the opposite of the hero. This poem had the most lines demonstrating how different the villain and hero are, and that is very important. MEDIA: "Aladdin" (Jafar) (Disney, 1992) Most Disney movies have a villain. Jafar, in the movie Aladdin, fits the villain archetype in several ways: (Lee, 2010) Example and Connection 1:
In the short clip jafar has magical powers, he orders the genie around, and just by looking at him, you can tell he is pretty wealthy. This would all be an example of how powerful and controlling Jafar is. Example and connection 2:
In the video, Jafar seems to have a plan and to know what he is doing, while the hero (Aladdin) does not. This shows how intelligent Jafar is and how he seems to be "ahead" of the hero. Example and connection 3:
In the beginning of the video, when Jafar ordered genie to make him the most powerful sorcerer in the world, this shows how determined Jafar is to be the ruler of everything and everyone and how determined he is to get everything he wants and nothing will get in his way. Example and connection 4:
Villains are well known as the "bad guy" that creates fear, and Jafar is most definitely the bad guy in the movie, "Aladdin". Everyone was afraid of Jafar. Aladdin is the hero in the movie, and as you can tell by watching that short clip, the hero and the villain are COMPLETE opposites. Aladdin is poor, nice, good looking, while Jafar is rich, mean, and ugly. Example and Connection 5:
It doesn't show this directly in the movie clip, but in the movie, "Aladdin", Jafar tricks Aladdin into getting mad at the genie and so Jafar ends up taking the genie from Aladdin. This is a good example of how deceiving villains like Jafar are. Example and Connection 6:
Usually after Jafar tricks Aladdin, or the Villain tricks the hero, the hero and villain get into a huge fight or battle. This mostly takes place at the climax. The Villain always loses and there is a happy ending. It doesn't show it in the short movie clip, but if you watched the whole movie, you would realize how the hero (Aladdin) wins, and the Villain (Jafar) loses, but he does not die. Example and Connection 7:
In this short part of the movie, "Aladdin", you got to get a good look at Jafar and see how he looks and acts. He doesn't have the best of looks and he has the creepiest voice and the most evil laugh, especially at the end the video. This is how we usually picture villains. Example and Connection 8:
I know that if i were in that movie i wouldn't want to be by jafar, he seemed like he could hurt you with a flick of his fingers. He put Aladdin's life in danger when he blasted him off in that tower. Indeed, you would say he is a villain because villains are supposedly dangerous like Jafar. Example and connection 9:
By watcing that short video, I know that Jafar only cares about himself by the way he treats others. He only thought about himself and seemed like he hated everyone else. That is another characteristic that makes him the Villain archetype. The villain is selfish and hateful Summary: Overall the Villain archetype doesn't have the most positive of characteristics and I know that if I had a chance to meet with a villain, then I would most definately run away from that offer. This is because villains don't seem like most pleasant people to meet, since they are so dangerous, hateful, powerful, and decieving. Just imagine approaching hitler! He is a real life villain and unless you had blue eyes and blonde hair, you would probably be very scared to meet him. The Villain archetype is in tons of stories, some stories are easier to spot the villain than others, but usually the villain sticks out from the other characters. (Jacobs, 1933) (Kim, 2011)
