* TakeAThirdOption: By the end of "The Servants of Twilight, Charlie Harrison isn't sure whether or not Joey is or isn't the Antichrist, but he figures that even if he was, that doesn't necessarily make him evil, just different. He even factors in the famous Samuel Butler quote: “An apology for the devil: it must be remembered that we have heard one side of the case. God has written all the books.”

** The conclusion that [[spoiler: Charlie]] comes to by the end of [[spoiler: ''The Servants of Twilight'']].

** The conclusion that [[spoiler: Charlie]] comes to by the end of [[spoiler: ''The Servants of Twilight'']]. At least one of the possible conclusions, given the ambiguity of the book.

** Grace Spivey from ''The Servants of Twilight''. A deranged cult leader trying to murder a 7 year old boy she thinks is the Antichrist? A latent psychic who confuses her abilities to see said 7 year old's potential as a gifted child as making him evil? The pawn of an uncaring and/or incompetent God trying to eliminate the competition? Or is she actually right and the boy is the son of The Devil himself? ''The Servants of Twilight'' is so ambiguous that each of the above scenarios are equally plausible.

** Bruno Frye from ''Whispers''. Where to even begin? In a nutshell, [[spoiler: Catherine gave birth to identical twins and raised them into believing they were one person. When one Bruno did something wrong, she'd punish both. When one Bruno did something good, she'd reward both. If they ever acted as if they were two people, she would lock them in a cellar filled with bugs. Said bugs caused the twins to scream so much that their voice boxes were permanently damaged, this also gave them constant nightmares that always resulted in them waking up and remembering the cellar, even as they grew up. Now adults, the two Brunos (still believing themselves to be one) are still traumatized and kill anyone who resembles their mom. When one of the twins actually dies, this drives the other one insane, wondering how he can be alive and dead at the same time.]] Basically, he's still a monster, but he's the most [[TragicVillain sympathetic villain]] Dean Koontz has created. As one of the good guys put it:

* MotiveDecay: Victor Helios in Creator/DeanKoontz's Frankenstein series first desires to eliminate humanity and replace it with a masterrace of his own creation, and eventually take over the world and the universe. In the sequel series, [[spoiler: his clone who has his memories and personality now just wants to wipe out humanity and then kill himself when it is completed for some reason.]] This is explained by Koontz as the next logical step to the original motivation, even though they are two completely different things.
