    Unrealistically beautiful women

    They seem to be making women to look like big burly men for some reason in mainstream entertainment? I don't understand why this is happening. Why are traditionally beautiful women or women that are unrealistically beautiful considered heresy today? While at the same time all the men are both super buff. Where is my fat neckbeards heroes?

    The Evil Video Games

    Blaming video games on everything it seems a lot of out of touch morons are doing... or even what humans were like in the past.

    I don't recall Genghis Khan getting angry over losing to a game a Call of Duty and creating the Mongol Empire out of retaliation for example.

Anyone like cheesy Bad Guys? · 7:20am July 11th

As in characters who are basically pure evil and have no real redeeming qualities whatsoever. Yes, I know it's not realistic (at least most of the time). But sometimes, I want a cheesy bad guy.

A perfect example would be the Dark Lord Sauron. There aren't really any shades of grey to this character. He is pretty hard to add shades of grey to a character who wants to bend all life to his will.

You mean like the Storm King?

Yes. He was Idiotic Evil. I rather enjoyed him.

As convenient as they are as a literary device, no one just says, "I'm evil for the hell of it". It's one of the failings of the Star Wars reboots, and many other series as well. If you can make the BBEG a relatable character that got shoved into his role through circumstance and necessity with no way out, it makes for a much more engaging story.

This is an aspect of Warhammer 40k that I like, actually. The Emperor, big grandaddy emps, comes across as pretty damn evil at some points, but he's humanity's only chance for survival for about twenty-eight thousand years of its history. He made a pact with Chaos to get the energies to make his Primarchs; anyone else in that setting making such a pact would be gruesomely tortured to death by the Inquisition, but he had to do it to keep the Great Crusade going and reuniting humanity's lost offshoots.

It depends, how cheesy are they?

Being cheesy is more than just being evil, it's about over the top. You not a bad guy because evil, you are a bad guy and love every single moment of it.

Yeah, like Tim Curry in Legend and The Three Musketeers, John Malkovich in In the Line of Fire, Alan Rickman in Die Hard, or Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men. I love those guys. Sure and they're irredeemably bad, but damn are they fun to watch.

YES! YOU CAN'T TRULY BE A CHEESY BAD GUY IF YOU DON'T ENJOY IT!

Some men (Or Stallions, in our case.) just want to watch the world burn.

And I can respect that.

Or Raul Julia's Bison from the Street Fighter movie, which was the only redeeming factor of that trash heap.

I like cheesy bad guys buuuuut I also like complex villains such as the Joker from The Dark Knight or Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War. It really all depends on the story that you're telling.

Bendy, not gonna lie. After checking out some of your stories, I'm surprised you aren't talking about a bad guy whose body is literally made of cheese.

Please write this into existence, as it is a Gouda idea! :pinkiecrazy:
