Follow TV Tropes
This trope is about when the spawn of Satan refuses to be Daddy's Little Villain, or anyone else with a destiny in evil who rejects that destiny. The current image isn't that; it's Affably Evil and possibly Pet the Dog.
I'm shaky enough on Hellboy's lore that I don't know if he truly counts, but at the same time I think the current's at least in Keep Until Better Image Suggested territory.
Keep untill better suggestiom
Hellboy isn't evil at all. Keep.
Keep the current. Hellboy isn't even remotely evil, and there's nothing Affably Evil about that image.
Hellboy's appearance evokes Big Red Devil / Red and Black and Evil All Over, but his actions in the image illustrate otherwise. You can also clearly see that he had his Horns of Villainy removed.
It's an excellent example, in my opinion.
Anti Anti Christ is a bit more than just "Good Demon" though.
Pull. Good image, but is not this trope.
Hellboy is destined to bring about the apocalypse, making him an example of this trope, but I don't see any way to illustrate that without just using some panels from the comic, which I prefer to avoid since I don't like text-heavy images. That goes for non-Hellboy examples, too.

That context is required though, otherwise it's the same problem as Just a Face and a Caption.

I agree, pull.
I don't think it should be pulled just because it can be misinterpreted as Pet the Dog. Keep Until Better Image Suggested at least.
Keep until better image is suggested.
Clock is set. Right now consensus is favoring Keep Until Better Image Suggested.
The clock's way past due and the consensus is that the current's a Keep Until Better Image Suggested case, so it's tagged thusly. Locking up.
