This entry needs to be rewritten to remove the scanlation page links and provide the necessary context.

  • Sai Akuto of Demon King Daimao. He's a Nice Guy who wants to become a Messianic Archetype and make the world a better place. Unfortunately, as the person destined to become the next Maou (Demon King), Sai is a Person of Mass Destruction whose powers are geared towards causing as much pain and property damage as possible. One example: In chapter 3 of the manga, the students practice infusing their mana into living things using flower seeds. Rice lover Kena grew a rice plant. Junko grew a Mandragora that looks like Sai (which she immediately chopped in half out of embarassment). Sai...grew this.

I take it a guy whose power more or less involves manipulating and tapping into the thoughts and minds of others* could fall into this trope, assuming the one with said powers looks a bit threatening and isn't trusted due to this.

The Whateley Universe is just a web original, not a web comic, and shouldn't have an entry under both, right?

Why is Maxwell Lord an example? Wouldn't it make more sense for him to be under Bad Powers, Bad People considering his behavior for the past several years? I'm moving it, because at this point he's unambiguously a bad guy and his powers still fit.

Had a question about a potential example- would Harry Potter himself count on account of having Voldemort's parseltongue ability (and to a lesser degree probably some other powers as well). I know (technically) parseltongue isn't an evil power because (technically) Slytherins aren't Always Chaotic Evil, but in practice, I think it's an example of this trope.
