Playing With / Hates Everyone Equally

Go To

Basic Trope: A character hates everyone regardless or race, gender, etc.

  • Straight: Alex hates everyone which includes black people, white people, women, men, children, overweight people, heterosexuals, homosexuals, asexuals...
  • Exaggerated:
    • ...nerds, bullies, rich people, poor people, smart people, dumb people, religious people, non-religious people, his family, his friends, his girlfriend, his enemies, God, Satan, and himself.
    • Advertisement:
    • Alex hates everyone (and himself) so much that he wants to kill everyone.
  • Downplayed:
    • Alex mildly dislikes everyone he doesn't know.
    • Alex just ignores and disregards everyone he meets.
    • Alex hates everyone, save for select groups of people like charity workers.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted:
    • Everyone hates Alex regardless of their race, gender, or nationality.
    • All-Loving Hero.
  • Subverted:
  • Double Subverted: That's only because he's been around them for a long time. When he does meet other kinds of people, he antagonizes them just as much.

  • Parodied: Every word out of Alex's mouth is some sort of petty insult towards humanity, even bothering to throw in a personalized insult whenever he bumps into somebody.
  • Zig-Zagged: Alex varies from a misanthropic asshole to a bigoted asshole to just an average asshole.
  • Averted:
    • Alex hates certain groups of people.
    • Alex neither hates nor likes everyone.
  • Enforced: "We need to show how hateful Alex is. Let's have him hate everyone no matter what group they are."
  • Lampshaded: "Well, at least he's not a bigot."
  • Invoked: Alex quickly handwaves his insult by reassuring his target that he hates everybody else as well.
  • Exploited: Alex uses his misanthropy as an excuse to be as big of a bigoted asshole to everyone as possible, figuring that people would just eventually stop caring and let him say what he wants.
  • Defied: Alex knows that hating everyone equally isn't enough, so he decides to target his hatred towards one group of people just to show how petty he is.

  • Discussed:
    Alex: Sure, I hate just about every race, color, and creed on this rotten planet, but I'm honest about it, and that's what counts.
    Betty: A melting pot of asshole is still an asshole, you know.
  • Conversed: "So Alex gets a pass because he didn't say that tirade to one group in particular?" "Yes. It's a strange version of 'fairness'."
  • Implied:
  • Deconstructed: Since Alex hates everybody and everyone, everybody hates him right back.
  • Reconstructed: Alex couldn't care less about what they think and/or wouldn't have it any other way.
  • Played for Laughs: Alex hates inanimate objects and frequently insults them as if they're living beings.
  • Played for Drama: Alex starves and goes unsheltered because nobody will deign to live near him, give him any goods and services, or let him give them goods and services.

I hate you, I hate them, I hate everyone, and I hate the main page!

How well does it match the trope?
