What Arha neglects to mention is that the nature
of her powers is at least partially responsible for her acting Evil (it's tied to an inherently out-and-out Evil entity), and there's no real reason why using it after she had rejected said Evil entity wouldn't at least make her very ruthless note
; the taint is still there, she's just no longer vulnerable to being manipulated by an Eldritch Abomination Ultimate Evil
. To wit, whenever in official spin-offs or non-Type-Moon doujinshi she is shown either deliberately using those powers again or accidentally having her control over them slip due to emotional stress, her personality does undergo a noticeable shift to a darker, evil-in-the-sense-of-very-dark-antihero
one that is prone to off-screen violence of the Disproportionate Retribution
sort (but as it's typically framed in comedic humor, no fatalities or permanent
Does that exclude races as a whole when compared to other, more "normal" races?
Also, while I'd say Evil Albino is a trope, I'm not sure that Heroic Albino is the same. Albino that happens to not be evil? So what?
As Evil Albino
notes, Heroic Albino
is a subversion
, which I take to mean that it requires that they be percieved in-universe as Evil Albino
initially, but later be proven to be not evil at all, rather the complete opposite
. It may rely on how Evil Albino
is apparently so common, that viewers expect
any albino-esque character to be evil, so it would be an utter surprise if they turn out to not only be evil, but to be quite heroic
. Examples of the "not evil, but not truly heroic either" shouldn't qualify, though.
