I think a good image for this page is this one considering Frieza is definitely the most evil character of Team Universe 7.

I think we should change the picture to something that has to do with Black Mage, from 8 bit theater.

A previous discussion topic already went over this.

Is it possible to have a character be this trope and The Chick? I read in the Playing With section of The Chick that "The Chick is the Token Evil Teammate" means it's an aversion of the former.

I seriously want to know if it's possible to combine those two tropes...

EDIT: Is it possible for the Token Evil Teammate to be The Hero? Try not to think too hard on that one...

It is possible, but they'd have to be an Anti-Hero.

How about a realife example of the USSR in WW 2 from the allied POV? i figured i should get responses before adding it the avoid a edit war

wouldn't black mage (from eight-bit theater) fit in this? he is clearly evil, whilst the other team mates are just jerkasses.

he goes on rampant murder sprees, hell, he even blinded and murdered his brother!

as i said, the rest are jerkasses (with the obvious exception of fighter) thief is a jerk, but he's more likely to steal from ya then flat out murder ya. black mage, on the other hand, aspires to murder everything in existence. the evilest thing thief has done was encourage black mage to annihilate dwarven civilization. which black mage probably would've done anyway.

Well in that case Thioef is still evil for encouraging murder (as well as for stealing)just because Black Mage is the only one that is evil for the sake of being evil doesn't automatically make him the only Evil guy.

well, the way i see it, rm is an idiot who wants to get stronger, fighter is just a flat-out idiot, thief is a profiteer who's racist, and bm is full-on evil, like, annihilate existence evil.

but i 'spose i hear you, 'cause thief is pretty evil come to think of it.

remove the cable and deadpool example, because both are type IV Anti-Hero.

The page says that they can be an Anti-Hero, Anti-Villain, or flat out villain.

I do not think Revy (Black Lagoon) is a real example, for my Dutch is just as bad (or even more evil), the difference is that Dutch is more pragmatic.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
