I have been keeping this tab open at Worlds Rise for the longest time to make sure I go back and read this post! And I'm so glad I did. It's a great breakdown of villain types and very inspiring for story types to get their heads around. Without further ado, I will give you a teaser then send you over to Worlds Rise to keep reading:
Note: I had some major issues in trying to copy over a portion of the text so resorted to a screencap for a teaser. The text at Worlds Rise is normal text you could use as a resource for writing if needed.
The other villain archetypes discussed are:
- The Rampaging Villain - The Deceived Villain - The Devil - The Rude and Lazy Villain -Evil Stepmother and Domestic Witch
You can read about all these and the complementary post on Hero Types over at Worlds Rise HERE.
