 THE VILLAIN: A Portrait of Don Whillans
Within a year of entering the climbing world in 1950 he had acquired parallel reputations of great skill and daring on the one hand, and as a hell-raiser with a savage wit on the other-the Villain of the title, who was denied a Knighthood because of a violent brawl with several policemen.
His world was miles away from the upper-crust environment of the well-heeled climbers who had for so long dominated the sport, and this itself led to tensions throughout his life.
A superb account of an iconic British mountaineer…The Villain is a welcome addition to the story of Don Whillans as well as the history of mountaineering, and deserves a prominent place on that bookshelf.

  11 to 15 - Most Popular Villain - Home and Away
Kelly is a rather text book villain, arriving in the bay to wreak revenge on someone she thinks has ruined her life.
She plots and plots and her revenge becomes even more cliched with each passing week, so in that sense she is serving a useful function as a villain.
Brad had quite a chilling expression towards the end of his reign, and worked really well as a villain because he had been on the show for quite a while before any one guessed that he was in fact the villain of the piece.

  The Home For Cartoon Villains
The Super Villainous attitude is your first and foremost key to the whole endeavor of achieving the status you desire.
Super Villains have to be sure of themselves, even above experts whose experience may outweigh the villain's in many situations.
If you plan to be one of those Super Villains who never shows his/her face, think of an identifiable body part to remain visible at all times and dress it up to the nines, circa Dr. Claw ("Inspector Gadget").

  Villain Summary
One popular concept of the "villain," meant to mimic the purposely distinctive visage of villains from silent films of the early 20th century.
The villain is also distinguished from an anti-hero — a character who violates the law or the prevailing social standards, but who nevertheless has the audience's sympathy, and is therefore the real hero of the story.
Villains can be brilliant (for example, the highly intelligent Hannibal Lecter), insane (an example being the self-proclaimed Clown Prince of Crime the Joker), power-mad (such as the Decepticon leader Megatron, who seeks to rule the universe) or noble (Count Dooku).

However, not all villains are as awe-inspiring as the tall, fl-clad Vader or as twisted as the cackling Joker.

 Giant In the Playground Games
Villains usually have an ongoing agenda beyond, "I want to survive my next fight with the heroes." In other words, the ogre in the cave that you fight is not a villain, but the ogre who swears revenge on the heroes for killing his brother in the cave is.
Giving the villain servants who are less than blindly obedient can increase the opportunity for roleplaying, as heroes try to convince henchmen to abandon their evil ways (or at least accept a healthy bribe).
A villain who sends his servants on suicide missions time after time had better be powerful or charismatic enough to ensure their absolute obedience, or else he will find himself on the wrong end of a mutiny.

Villains are usually intelligent, devious, scheming, and nefarious, often eloquent and refined or even charismatic.
Not many villains end up being the central character in the story they are featured in, and fewer become friends with the main good guy.
Droon was not really a self-aware villain, but simply a man with a strong belief which was not in the best interest of anyone else, which perhaps makes him more of a tragic figure than a villain.

 RPGnet : The Inside Scoop on Gaming   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Villains are the heart of most campaigns, the thing that makes a Hero, in dramatic terms.
Villains are what any GM should keep close to their heart, for without them, we have a docusoap, not a drama.
The vast majority of these villains are modern or futuristic based, and very hard to change to lower tech levels, and this goes double for the more ppowerful villains.

 Characterizing the Villain in Your Fiction Manuscript - Associated Content
Villains are the characters in books and movies who make life difficult for everyone else, especially your hero or heroine.
The villain does whatever he or she can to thwart the master plan and bring misery to your protagonists.
In order to create a story with an interesting villain, you must first decide who the villain is. In most fiction manuscripts, the villain is a regular person who wishes evil on the protagonists, but in some stories, the villain is a disease or something even less tangible.

 The Harrow: The RPG Collection
There's one golden rule that every villain should keep in mind: "Don't piss off the adventurer." If villains could just keep this in mind, they'd probably get away with a lot more.
Much more detail-oriented, this is a good guide to behavior after one's villainous cover has been blown and the adventurer is on your tail.
Your adventurers may know the individual is a certifiable bad guy, but they'll have a heck of a time proving it ("Oh, but he's such a sweet man—goes to church every Sunday and even paid for the Junior League's fireworks display!")...

 TMC: The Villain's Handbook
Alone, a villain (no matter how good they are at combat) is fodder for a bunch of people who want to take him or her down.
The real villain may have this behavior, but it is unnecessary because the key to the sheer scariness of a villain isn't their habits (especially if those habits are exercised only in private or in places where people are unaware of them).
Instead, villains are ultimately selfish, and rather than thinking about desires in terms of personal characteristics, they think of things in terms of "does this action benefit MY goal?" If their goal is filled, it's good, else it's bad.
