Shakespeare's Sources for Macbeth cont. Notable changes were made by Shakespeare in his depiction of Holinshed's three weird sisters, and it is apparent that the alterations were implemented partially to instill trepidation in the audience.
Even evil characters and real people can find someone to love. Often, that love is twisteda cause for villainyor an act but sometimes a work can show an evil character's love is genuine and deep.
At an extreme end, can provoke Mama Bear or Papa Wolf reactions if they are threatened, or prompt the loved ones to Avenging the Villain. It also marks the villain as hypocritical and shows his twisted worldview by treating everyone else as insects but excluding the few ones he has feelings of affection for.
For the reciprocal situation, where an evil character has someone who loves them, see Even Evil Can Be Loved. If the evil character in question is a mookand said love brings them in conflict with their own boss, that's Even Mooks Have Loved Ones.
Guaranteed that it will overlap with Moral Myopia when the villain sees no problem with their own methods, until those methods are turned on the ones they love. Gendo Ikari is really an evil bastard but he definitely loved his wife Yui, and, in the movie, is shown to love his son but not know how to take care of him, which is why he makes such a piss poor parent to poor Shinji.
Note that in the mangahe only loves Yui and hates Shinji for stealing her love. Subverted in Death Note where Light sheds away his initial care for his family after his descent in morality.
When his father died, he was just frustrated that he failed to deliver Mello's real name, but otherwise never mourned him. When his sister was kidnapped by Mello, he seriously considered killing her with the Death Note and only relented because it would frame him as Kira.
On top of that he threatened his girlfriend Misa to kill her and had his other girlfriend Takada burn herself to death.
Averted in the film The Last Name, in which he writes his father's name into the Death Note in order to stop it being analyzed. It doesn't work - and what's worse, Soichiro gets to watch while he does it.
Even Misa was horrified at that and broke down in tears. Just when we thought it couldn't get worse, it did: Light ultimately dies in his father's arms, begging him to believe that he acted as Kira to put justice into effect.
Played straight with Matt and Mello. Matt seems to be the only person Mello actually cares about besides himself, and Mello expresses genuine sorrow when Matt gets killed by Takada's bodyguards.
They may have been sociopathic assholes, but the three Trinity siblings of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 did really love and protect each other. And Nena genuinely cried and mourned when Michael and Johann got killed.
Which doesn't stop him from being a total Psycho Supporter and Smug Snake. This trope drives the plot of Basilisk. Two clans of blood thirsty killers, with their loyalties held close to their hearts, spiral the Cycle of Revenge to tragedy. Despite this he is clearly shown to love his younger brother Saphir and his motivation for taking over the earth is partly because he promised his brother that they would one day live happy lifes there, away from the desolation of Nemesis.
In both continuities he is incredibly shaken over Saphir's death. Especially in the manga, where he is forced to kill him after he is brainwashed into attacking Dimande by the real Big Bad of the season, Wiseman. In the anime Saphir is instead directly executed by Wiseman who claims he was a traitor, when Saphir was only trying to warn his older brother of Wiseman's treachery.
This causes Dimande to eventually turn on Wiseman and is one of the things that inspires him to perform a Heroic Sacrifice to save Usagi, thereby redeeming himself somewhat.
Scar's plan is to get revenge on the State Alchemists that annihilated his people. Once he meets his master and other surviving Ishvalans, it's clear that he still cares for his people. Fuhrer King Bradley is one of the homunculi, but he shows affection for his wife, noting that although everything else he has done has been to fulfill his superior's evil plan, "my wife I have chosen myself.
This is surprising, as Pride is by far the most evil of all the homunculi, and in fact he himself seems a bit confused by his own feelings. One more example with the homunculi: Envy and Gluttony especially Gluttony seem to be pretty fond of their "sister," Lust. They take her death the hardest, with Envy being pissed off about it, while Gluttony is extremely depressed and then goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge when he finds out Roy is responsible.
There are also two chimera henchmen who turn to the path of righteousness when they find out their families will likely become victims of the Evil Plan. Also implied with Van Hohenheim, but it's a Red Herring. He's not evil at all, but for a while viewers are given the false impression that he and Father who doesn't have loved ones at all are the same person.
Pride seems to have one of these with his son Selim and his wife in the anime ; however, he still shows no issue strangling Selim in the finale. Flame of Recca does this.
Despite being a sadistic bastard of an assassin, it's made pretty clear Kurei has underlings who care for him. He clearly returns their loyalty, although in his own way, mourning them if they die and swearing revenge on their killers.The best opinions, comments and analysis from The Telegraph.
