Blond Guys Are Evil and Blondes Are Evil are being disambiguated per TRS thread.

  • Applied lightly in the film Made of Honor, where the dark-haired (and American) Tom wins the girl and the Scottish blond Colin loses her. We say applied lightly because Colin is portrayed as quite a nice guy aside from not being very good at sharing cake.

Pulling this, because while it's definitely a romance trope, the trope description requires a blond bad guy/jerk.

What's the purpose of Blondes are Evil if we already have this page? I think we should just merge them, this is an issue of hair color, not gender.

I agree. At most Blomdes Are Evil could be split on the page into male examples and female examples, but, other than that, they're essentially the same trope.

Should Ashley Wilkes from "Gone With the Wind" really be included? He's practically the opposite of "evil" - he's a lot more naive and idealistic than most of the characters in the book.

I'm kind of surprised no one added Draco Malfoy as an example.

Because he's not really "evil". He's just a petty little brat when he's not being The Woobie later on.

Does just any bad guy who happened to be blond count? Or should his blondness distinguish him from the cast? Like Star Wars example - yes, Dart Vader is (was) blond, but both Luke and Obi-Wan are blonds too. Does this and other examples, where there's non-evil blonds in the cast, belong here?

That'll be bad. Don't add examples like that.

Under Literature, might I suggest Katherine Kurtz's Alaric Morgan (of her Deryni novels/short stories) subverts this trope? The interesting bit is that he's not above playing up his sinister reputation at times, finding it a useful tool for protecting himself and intimidating others; not that one can blame him for this, as he's a member of feared and persecuted minority whose wealth and political power are still more reasons he arouses jealousy and hatred in others.

Am I the only one who thinks the "blond" guy in the picture doesn't really look blond? Maybe it's the lighting.

Yup, I can't really tell if he's blond, the pic doesn't make him seem very evil either.

Frankly, it seems a bit Just a Face and a Caption to me - not very enlightening, and he doesn't look AWFULLY evil. The text box even makes it more uncertain, as opposed to less.

D'you think it should be changed?

I think we could choose a more appropriate picture. In this one the blond hair is less important than the sharp teeth and maniacal expression is communicating the guy's evil-ness.
