    Im somewhat confused on the term evil.
    I dont know what to recomenf when someone wants an evil mc..
    Because once we take the point of view of the MC, we will somewhat justified his action as we relate to him/her.
    So...
    What is the thing that makes an MC evil?
    Is it the selfish desires?
    Is it the part where he/she disregard other humans?
    How can a person thats only stays true to his desires be labeled as evil?
    Is a young master falling in love with the best girl and being rejected, while still trying to force his way be considered as evil?
    Does having the intent to kill is evil?
    Is lex luthor or the joker considered evil?
    Is dio evil?
    Please enlighten me seniors!!
    Thnx.

    What. Good and evil too hard on you?

    It all falls down to each individual imo. Evil like Joker can be considered acceptable by others.

    evil is what you make it out to be? if your really strict about the requirements of evil, then just about everything is evil. but in novels, i guess its how out there the MC is compared to the rest of the world and its customs.

    an evil person is a person who does enough deeds that are considered to be evil. What constitutes "enough evil deeds" depends on the person. And also the severity of the deed, and the presence of any good deeds to balance it.

    A guy that steals a dollar every day while doing 0 good deeds, is evil
    A guy that steals a dollar, once in his life, and also doing 0 good deeds, is most likely not evil.
    A guy that steals a dollar every day, but devotes several hours to doing charity, is not evil
    A guy that murders an entire town, is evil.

    The thing that makes an MC evil is public readers opinions.
    It is selfish desires.
    It is the part where he/she disregard other humans.
    A person that's only stays true to his desires be labeled as evil by public readers opinions.
    A young master falling in love with the best girl and being rejected, while still trying to force his way can be considered as evil.
    Having the intent to kill is evil.
    Lex Luthor or the Joker is considered evil.
    Dio is evil.
    Let us enlighten you junior.
    You're welcome.

    Killing for no reason, selfish at a high level, scheming to hurt/kill peoples for his own benefit, etc.

    Anyone with the name Leylin is evil. Even if they aren't, they're just hiding their evil doings.
    Where did that happen?

    A pretty vague and common answer which is annoying is 'there is no such thing as evil, only people who make the wrong choices' or something like that

    It really all is up to the people's opinion on what is evil. An example would be when you think your always right and that you shouldn't be compared to others cuz of how great your identity is and that you deserve more than what you get so you try to take things in a more extravagant ways to make other people notice you.

    Another one would be when you unconsciously to yourself and to others that your actions are all for the sake of someone when in reality all your doing is pushing your ideals and restricting someone's freedom to think for themselves would be one as well. So in the end it all depends on how others view it and decipher it from right to wrong.
