YMMV: True Villains

  • Angst? What Angst?- Mia isn't too sad that her entire town, her only home, was destroyed in a blaze of fire and terror.
    • Not to mention, her terrible living conditions before that
  • Character Alignment-
    • Lawful Neutral: Augustus follows some kind of code of chivalry, but is nonetheless fiercely loyal to the group, and follows orders without question.
    • True Neutral- Sebastian is the Beyond Good & Evil flavor of this alignment, and Tom is this by default, being essentially a robot with no will of his own
    • Chaotic Neutral- Mia is a solid Type 1- she just wants to have fun. Dexter also seems to fit this alignment.
    • Lawful Evil- From what little we see of him, Lord Attera is this
    • Neutral Evil- Bayn is a Type 1, Xaneth straddles Type 1 and Type 2
    • Chaotic Evil- Elia is a Type 4
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: The comedy is the only real reason to keep reading, otherwise it really is nothing more then about a team of evil-aligned characters doing horrifying and terrible actions while not caring one whit about it.
  • Distaff Counterpart- Alyssa has a lot in common with Gray
  • Rewatch Bonus- Rereading the comic from the beginning after the conclusion of Saga 6 means that Xaneth's plans involving Sebastian take on a whole new dimension. He knew that Sebastian would become a powerful force in the future, so he engineered Sebastian gaining his superstrength and ensured that Sebastian would be under his control.
    • On a less serious note, it also reveals why Xaneth put together such a strange ensemble for Sebastian, and why he seemed so put out when Sebastian first refused to wear it: his refusal at that point in time meant he wasn't going to become powerful until a later time.
  • Schedule Slip- A very, very long time. Updating now since they have a new artist.
  • Tear Jerker -
    • Olivia begging Elia to protect her child as she's dragged beneath the ground by Elia's undead.
    • Tom's death in Saga 7, and Mia's reaction to it. The whole page progressively becomes more monochrome, reactions from everyone - even Bayn and Xaneth - are shown, and there's absolutely no text. Because there's no need for any.
    • And right after this is The Reveal that it had such an effect on Mia's aura that she can't use her powers anymore.
