There’s something strong about a villain having a change of heart at the end of the story that makes them good.
What does a good villain have? It’s hard to answer this question because fans have different views. It doesn’t matter if it’s a video game, a cartoon, a movie, or something else. For example, it’s fun to root against figures like Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars who are very bad and have nothing good about them.
Darth Vader, on the other hand, has a more complicated history than Palpatine. He was born good as Anakin Skywalker, but he turned to the Dark Side when he lost his way. Then, in the end, he made up for it by stopping Emperor Palpatine and saving his son Luke. It’s great to see villains’ stories come full circle like that, too. So, are there any other characters in video games that are like this one?
