Green and Mean

Go To
♫ You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch. ♫
I'm just a mean green mother from outer space, and I'm bad.
I'm just a mean green mother, a real disgrace,
And you've got me fightin' mad!
I'm just a mean green mother from outer space,
Gonna trash your ass,
Gonna rock this place,
Cause I'm mean and green, and I am BAD!
Audrey II, "Mean Green Mother from Outer Space", Little Shop of Horrors

Green is a color often associated with evil, and many villains have a green motif in the form of hair, skin, or clothing. As a widely occurring color in nature (reptiles, amphibians, and plant life), but one that doesn't appear naturally in humans — apart from a comparatively rare eye color — it has connotations being alien. Green is also frequently associated with poison and — largely thanks to William Shakespeareenvy. Green skin or some form of green essence is often a feature of the Wicked Witch.

Heroes who oppose such villains frequently choose red as their signature color, resulting in a Red/Green Contrast.

A Sub-Trope of Good Colors, Evil Colors and Secondary Color Nemesis, and Super-Trope to Sickly Green Glow. Watch out for Green Is Gross.

    Anime & Manga 
  • Astro Boy Pluto, the massive horned robot, was colored black and grey respectively in the original manga and cartoon, but is turned military green for 2003 series. Very fitting, since he operates like a tank, but subverted since he turns good.
  • It is fairly rare in Berserk, as red and black are more common color schemes for the Apostles, but there a few examples:
    • The unnamed female Apostle that kills Corkus and has sex with Guts before getting killed is colored green in the manga, though she is black in the anime and movie.
    • Slan of The God Hand has green tentacle-like hair and a green hue to her skin, and she's probably the most depraved and openly sadistic member of the God Hand next to Griffith/Femto.
    • Rosine only has one appearance outside the manga, where she's colored green and emits a glow.
    • Irvine, the reborn Griffith's archer in his Apostle form, is a Nice Guy but nevertheless since he works for Griffith he's still effectively an antagonist.
  • Black Clover: Jack the Ripper wears green, the color of his squad, and while a Magic Knight Captain he's still a bloodthirsty guy with a love for cutting things up.
  • While Ulquiorra from Bleach has a white body, his eyes are green, and his Battle Aura in his Segunda Etapa form gives off a Sickly Green Glow. He also beats the absolute shit of Ichigo when they fight, and the latter only wins when he gets his hollow form.
  • Many villains from Dragon Ball are green colored; though purple is the standard (purple is often associated with death in Japan), the green villains are more unique.
    • The Crane School's color is green, which serves as a contrast to their rival the orange-colored Turtle School and represents their different (more deadly) nature. Subverted in retrospect with Tien and Chiaotzu who turned good and even stop wearing green themselves, though in Dragon Ball Super the students in Tien's school wear green.
    • Demon King Piccolo, the first truly dangerous Big Bad of Dragon Ball, is very green and very mean, technically the strongest person on Earth before Goku shows up; Piccolo was even based on King Nero of Rome according to Toriyama's editor at the time. Of course, subverted as King Piccolo's reincarnation becomes good and good friend to Goku and his son.
    • Played straight in the non-canon times where Piccolo becomes evil again, like in Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest where he's Brainwashed and Crazy and tries to kill Gohan, and Majin Piccolo from Dragon Ball Z Supersonic Warriors 2.
    • Zarbon is DBZ's standout when it comes to The Fighting Narcissist, has green hair and turquoise skin, and kills innocent Namekians with gusto. Zarbon also has a monstrous transformation where he loses all his Bishōnen beauty.
    • The Ginyu Force has the green-skinned Guldo. Though he's the weakest of the team and is generally treated like a joke, he's still a member of Frieza's elite mercenaries and nearly killed Gohan and Krillin had Vegeta not stepped in.
    • The grasshopper-looking Cell is a powerful villain rivaling Frieza in terms of antagonist popularity; he was created using the cells of Z-Fighters and successfully killed Trunks twice and forced Goku to perform a Heroic Sacrifice. While his forms may vary along with his attitude which goes from conniving, brutish to relaxed, one thing stays the constant about Cell — he is very evil and very green.
    • The eponymous antagonist from Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug. When we first see him the only thing about that's green is his face, until he rips off his helmet and gloves and he is revealed as a Namekian, and an evil ancient one to boot. Slug brutalized Goku with his giant form and only lost thanks to a combination of Gohan whistling and Piccolo giving Goku his energy.
    • Broly as well, despite not technically being colored green, but with hair and Ki aura having a Sickly Green Glow (which is rare for villains); Super Saiyans are normally gold colored. The suggestion is that Broly is unnatural, even for Saiyans standards, and the green hue is part of the unhinged "Legendary" transformation. In his first canon apperance in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, his outfit has several green-colored sections.
    • Zamasu from Dragon Ball Super is green skinned and extremely sadistic, narcissistic and pessimistic about mortals. Zamasu single-handedly makes Trunks' Bad Future even worse and nearly destroys everything until the timeline was erased.
  • Fairy Tail:
    • Master Zero of the Oracion Seis wears a dark-green military-like outfit and wields Darkness Magic colored with a Sickly Green Glow, and he's one of the most unrepentantly evil beings in the series who just wants to destroy everything and everyone.
    • Azuma of Grimoire Heart, who fittingly of his green attire has nature powers; but add combustion powers to that and the heroes were in for a rough time, especially Erza, who takes a brutal beating from the villain.
    • Gajeel's magic power is depicted as being green in the anime, and he debuted as The Dragon to Jose Porla and an Evil Counterpart to Natsu who brutalized several Fairy Tail members badly. Even after he makes a Heel–Face Turn and joins Fairy Tail to lighten up, he's still the definition of Good Is Not Soft.
  • Heavy Object:
    • Prizewell City Slicker, who is mostly dressed in Green in the anime, is not only an elite of the Legitimacy Kingdom's 24th Mechanized Maintenance Batalion, but also is one of the most xenophobic antagonists in the series, specifically he seeks to either enslave or slaughter those who don't speak the official language.
    • Skuld Silent-Third of the Faith Organization wears a green bodysuit. While she seems like an innocent elite, she is really a serial killer who has no qualms in regards to who her targets are, which range from soldiers on her own side to innocent civillains.
  • Meruem, the Big Bad Chimera Ant King from Hunter × Hunter, makes Cell from DBZ looks reasonable. Despite being a newborn, he can smash heads off with one swipe of his tail and brutalized Netero with Super-Speed, even ripping the old man's limbs clean off. Meruem is also the Last of His Kind.
  • Mazinger Z: Big Bad Dr. Hell always wears a tight green uniform.
  • Naruto has a couple examples; Haku has teal clothing and is one of the first antagonists in the series, the already-evil Kabuto is even more evil and green in his Snake Sage form; and there's White Zetsu and Black Zetsu (the latter is more obviously evil), who both have green hair.

    Asian Animation 
  • In Happy Heroes, Big M., who wants to invade Planet Xing, wears a suit of green and black armor.

    Comic Books 
Marvel Universe:
  • Most Spider-Man villains have green skin or wear green costumes, including the Green Goblin, Lizard, Mysterio, Sandman, Electro, Vulture, Scorpion, and Doctor Octopus. This is most likely due to Secondary Color Nemesis and red/green Color Contrast.
  • Doctor Doom has a green cloak, tunic and hood, though long time readers will recognize that Doom isn't quite as evil as his attire and name would suggest. But since most of Doom schemes are Take Over the World and destroying those who appose his plans this trope still very much applies to Doom. Doom eventually traded the Green attire for a white one.
  • Fantastic Four:
    • The Skrulls are a race of reptilian super beings who can shapeshift and have Power Copying. These mean green bastards have invaded Earth frequently and often without the Heroes noticing, the give away is whenever they revert back to their green skin.
    • The Badoon are another race of reptilian aliens who are outright Omnicidal Maniacs. The Skrulls are shown as having some good traits or members of their species who are alright when you get to know them. The Badoon? Nuh-uh. Like the Skrulls, the Badoon are colored block green.
  • Three of Doctor Strange arch enemies are green.
    • Baron Mordo, Strange's most prominent Evil Counterpart dresses in green and was taught by the Ancient One the same as Strange but grew jealous when discovered Strange would be the Sorcerer Supreme and not him and frequently tried to kill Strange before and after the death of The Ancient One. Though he is given a Race Lift in the movie he still wears green.
      • Nightmare is also an opposite of Strange and what he stands for, being omniscient entity of horror who draws power from the subconscious mind; and sticking point is you can't destroy him as doing so would drive humanity insane.
    • Shuma Gorath is a disgusting green one-eyed multi dimensional tentacle monster who is the ruler of chaos. Not only is Gorath a colossal pain to Strange but also everybody else when he shows up.
  • Ronan the Accuser the enemy of the Fantastic Four and more commonly Guardians of the Galaxy wears green in the comics.
  • The terrorist organization Hydra in Captain America are dressed in green.
  • Annihilus like the Skrulls and Green Goblin has the green and purple coloring but far exceeds most Marvel villains in terms of power. Not only did Annihilus beat the shit out of Thanos, but he even put Galactus on the ropes.
  • The Incredible Hulk: The eponymous green-skinned character can be pretty destructive at times. His archenemies, the Leader and the Abomination, also fit here.
  • Charlotte Witter, the fourth Spider-Woman and the only one to be a villain, wears a green, Stripperiffic outfit.

The DCU:

  • Doom Patrol villain Garguax is an alien conqueror who happens to have green skin.


  • Sonic the Hedgehog Comics:
    • Archie Comics: Scourge the Hedgehog is Sonic's Mirror Universe counterpart, embodying everything Sonic is against. Whilst he was originally blue like Sonic, him attempting to harness the Master Emerald's power until being knocked off of it midway through transformation by Knuckles' father, Locke, caused Scourge to turn a ghastly green, which he has maintained ever since and is just as malicious as he's always been.
    • IDW: Surge the Tenrec, Scourge's Suspiciously Similar Substitute, is another antithesis to Sonic, being brainwashed by Dr. Starline into being an Ax-Crazy, Psycho Electro powerhouse specifically designed to rival Sonic in speed and power. Unlike Scourge, however, who became green thanks to mutation from Chaos Energy, Surge has always been green before she was taken in by Starline.

    Fan Works

    Film — Animated 
  • Subverted in Encanto. The green-cloaked Bruno is set up to be an antagonistic, foreboding figure (hence "we don't talk about Bruno"). However, when he finally appears in person, he turns out to be a shy, sweet man, and the main people protagonist Mirabel has conflict with are her red-dressed grandmother and lavender-dressed sister.
  • The Toad from Flushed Away is the Big Bad of the movie and is, well, take a wild guess.

    Film — Live-Action 
  • The Elf: The elf doll is decked out in a green hat and coat, and is brought to life to kill everyone on its naughty list (which is everyone in the house).
  • The Green Knight: Subverted. The titular warrior, though the movie's primary antagonist, doesn't display overly malicious qualities. In fact, he shows qualities desirable in any half-decent knight.
  • Halloweentown: The villain Kalabar is a greenish scarecrow-like guy.
  • Heathers: Heather Duke, the Beta Bitch, is colour coded with green (she's even forced to play as green in the Heathers' croquet game). After Heather Chandler's death, she's the one who becomes the new Alpha Bitch. Notably Heather McNamara, who's coded with yellow, is nicer than the other two.

  • The Adventures of Pinocchio: At one point, Pinocchio is captured in the net of the Green Fisherman, a big, brutish, gluttonous, lizard-looking creep with green skin and hair, who believes Pinocchio to be a type of uncommon fish and happily decides to fry him and have a taste of him, even though Pinocchio keeps telling him that he's not a fish and cries for help the entire time. Pinocchio is rescued by the dog Alidoro, and they get chased by the furious Green Fisherman until he's too out of breath to run more.
  • The Adventures of Strong Vanya: The evil Och, also known as "The Green Devil", is a dragon-like creature who enjoys terrorizing peasants and destroying villages and forests.

    • Subverted most obviously by Harry's bright green eyes; inherited from his mother Lily, who was widely praised not only for her magical skills, but for her love, courage, and virtue.

    Live-Action TV 
  • Arrow. Inverted with main character Oliver Queen who wears a green outfit that he first used when marooned on a jungle island. In fact Oliver finally adopting the Code Name of Green Arrow at the start of Season 4 (as opposed to "The Hood" or "The Arrow") is done as a conscious effort to put his Anti-Hero image behind him.
  • House of the Dragon: Heavily zig-zagged with House Hightower, who have green as one of their signature colors and whose political faction is called the Greens by the later episodes of Season 1. Although the story goes out out its way to emphasize Grey-and-Grey Morality, the Hightowers ARE the ones who deliberately misconstrue a king's dying words and use them as pretext for long-held plans, despite said plans' treasonous nature and many previous years of paying lip service.
  • The Mighty Boosh has The Hitcher, the only recurring villain, who's an Ax-Crazy Hostile Hitchhiker with green skin and a twisted face.
  • Once Upon a Time specifically mentions that the Wicked Witch of the West's green skin comes from her envy. When she abandons her chance at becoming good, the white jewel in her power centre turns green. Likewise at one point, she also draws a parallel between red and green apples - green are far more bitter.
  • Power Rangers:
  • Star Trek:
    • Romulans, described on camera as "the Federation's oldest enemy" are often represented by the color green, having green ships, green phasers and green uniforms. How antagonistic they are may depend on the plot though.
    • The Borg are mostly represented by Black, however their technology has a Sickly Green Glow.
    • Orions are green-skinned humanoids with black and red hair who often have the role of antagonists. They're famous for practicing different criminal activities like piracy, slave traffic and organized crime, and the Orion Syndicate is basically the space mafia. However the presence of good Orions who actuall fight the stereotype and face prejudice for is a plot point in many episodes.

    Professional Wrestling 
  • The two founding members of Diabolic Khaos, Delirious and MsChif originally wore white and black, respectively. Delirious's second mask and MsChif's second singlet were green and while Delirious has worn masks of many colors, each representing a different "personality", everything MsChif has worn has consistently had green on it somewhere and she's consistently a ruthless Blood Knight. "Green" Delirious is much goofier than she is, as well as White Delirious, Red Delirious and Black Delirious but all the same is known for striking people with a wooden stake.

  • Dungeons & Dragons: Goblins and especially orcs worship Gods of Evil and live and die by Rape, Pillage, and Burn. Dark-skinned orcs, like orogs and gray orcs exist, but most fall under various shades of green. Non-evil orcs are rare.

  • Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West: Everyone assumes she must be bad, because she is green. Eventually she decides Then Let Me Be Evil, but even then she's not actually malicious.

  • G.I. Joe rarely had green-dressed characters in the Enemy ranks. Of the few Enemy characters that DID wear green were Dreadnoks’ Ripper, Cobra Night Vipers, Cobra Flak Vipers, the 1993 H.E.A.T Vipers, and select Python Patrol members from 1989.
