Bellum Profile: What it Takes to Make an Effective Villain

ZI writes:

There are two types of villains in the world of fiction - effective ones, and ineffective ones. It may seem like a massive generalization to narrow down the entire literary scope of villainy to this broad dichotomy, but bear with me here. We can compare story beats all day, but the true power of any plot element is the effect it has on the person “consuming” it, whether that be a reader, viewer, or in this case player. It’s the effect a plot has on a person, the emotions it raises, that’s important - not necessarily the plot itself. (Nintendo DS, The Legend Of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass)
