These tropes assign moral values to certain characters, character types, or situations, or are seen by most people as such. The wiki prefers to avoid opinions on the morality of real people, who are almost always far more complex than any fictional depiction. And in any case, calling a real person a villain or a jerk is really not a good idea. Even if most people think of them as such, at least one person will disagree; and even if that person never finds that example, it still creates hostility towards the individual, which we don't want on a wiki that tries to be neutral. In short, real people should not be described as "good" or "evil".
