** A much darker version comes later - the main reason [[BigBad the Other]] is so reviled by pretty much everyone is that she uses slaver wasps to control people, with them having to obey her every order once they have become revenants. Even other characters with UndyingLoyalty hate the idea of ''forcing'' people to obey. One of the main forms of opposition to the Other come from Baron Wulfenbach, who has spent the majority of his rule gathering and destroying the Other's technology, and has biologically engineered weasels to sniff out revenants. And then he goes and [[spoiler: does the exact same thing as the Other has done to Agatha, by implanting a copy of his personality into his son so that he can control his to some extent and make sure that he doesn't help Agatha.]] This is [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20150420#.VvhSeeIrLIU explicitly called out in-comic]] by the Other herself. When the BigBad herself is criticising you, you know [[MoralEventHorizon you've fucked up]].

** When Elan finally realizes that his father is Evil, he declares that he's no better than his EvilTwin Nale. Tarquin takes offense, deriding Nale as an egomaniac more interested in being the center of attention than a functioning plan for world domination. But as the arc goes on, Tarquin proves to be no different; he continues to antagonize the Order because he wants to be main villain in an traditional hero-son vs villain-father story, which he thinks only works if Elan is the leader, which means Roy and others who could overshadow him must die. He wastes time, manpower and personal favors pursuing this goal, showing himself to be more concerned with being the center of attention than his long-time goal of taking control of the continent.

* In ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' Arachna has a [[http://yafgc.net/?id=45 rather dim view on "good" folk]]. [[http://yafgc.net/?id=180 Broch thinks]] it's worse than that, though.

** Belkar and V definitely have this going on. The characters hate each other and are nearly opposite in personality and intelligence (V is an elfeminate InsufferableGenius; Belkar is macho and rarely thinks before acting, being pure Id). Despite this, the two are practically identical in their readiness to solve problems with violence. In one of V's AndThatWouldBeWrong moments, he justifies himself by saying that he was only representing "the halfling's" (Belkar's) point-of-view.
** "[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0838.html Are we talking about?..]]"
** Tarquin is this in different ways to both of his sons. He criticizes Nale for allowing his ego to cripple his effectiveness [[spoiler: but is convinced that everything is about him, and throws away resources trying to force the world to conform to this]], and Elan for being content to be a second-stringer whose main use to his party is his GenreSavvy [[spoiler: which is, in truth, exactly what Tarquin is to his own party. He's just convinced himself that he's actually their leader.]]
** [[DragonInChief Redcloak]] and [[HeroWithAnFInGood Vaarsuvius]]. Both are [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well Intentioned Extremists]], both have a thing for [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide avenging their families]], both are [[BadassBookworm Badass Bookworms]], both struggle with [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone regret]] over [[spoiler: the blood of innocents on their hands.]] Both are [[DeadpanSnarker Deadpan Snarkers]]. Both are the "smart guy" of their respective team, both are spellcasters. Both have been subject to NeverLiveItDown, V over the whole [[spoiler: selling their soul and savagely murdering an entire dragon subspecies]] thing and Redcloak [[spoiler: setting fire to Lirian's Glade, and killing his brother.]]

** Vriska is introduced to us right away as an overdramatic troll who wants to involve herself in absolutely everything important, even if it means making terrible decisions. Her corresponding pre-scratch troll, Aranea, seems to be much more softspoken, described by Terezi as "[=4 N1C3 VR1SK4=]". However, [[spoiler: when Aranea decides to try to defeat Lord English by reviving herself and preventing our heroes from creating a new universe, as is the goal of the game, we find that Aranea's and Vriska's motives are very much the same. She ultimately fails and [[KarmicDeath dies]].]]

*** [[spoiler: This makes quite a bit of sense when you consider how messed up Mindfang, Aranea's pre-scratch self, was.]]
