Top 10 Video Game Dark Is Not Evil Characters

Darkness…

Needs to get a DSL. His line is always — Hold a sec, I’m not a Blizzard character who has been poked too many times, am I?

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to yet another series of countdown before Halloween closes in. So speaking of Halloween, I know that there is some sort of tradition to dress up as menacing being or monsters. Ghosts, Vampires, Werewolves, Pumpkin Heads… Those are the common creatures of darkness that lurk in both folk tales and often used in video games for us good guys to beat. So consensus is, these creatures associated with darkness are always evil, right?

Actually no.

Sometimes, a character looks that menacing, utilizing the power of Darkness, or can make you think ‘He’s dark related. He must be suspicious as hell.’, and you won’t be always wrong, because the power of darkness corrupts. Well not these characters, these characters utilize the power of darkness, or just evil powers overall, or just overall look menacing or terrifying, but they’re not that evil at heart. They can be perfectly good guys, or they can be just overall tragic character… that needs a hug. After all, always remember that power is just a tool, at the hands of good men, even the evilest power can be the greatest force of good… and at the hands of evil men, even the most righteous power can be the greatest force of evil.

And even TV Tropes has two articles in regards of these phenomenon: Bad Powers, Good People and… Dark Is Not Evil.

And now, I am going to list up 10 characters in video games that to me live up to these archetypes the most, the characters who looks evil or having evil or dark powers… but turns out to be not that bad or even heroic… so the next time someone approached you for trick or treat in this Halloween, you don’t get the wrong idea. Remember, they’re just innocent kids beneath the costume! … Uh, yeah we hope. Same rules apply, just from video games I have played.

Just be careful that there are spoilers galore. Well that’s enough talk… HAVE AT YOU!

Top 10 Video Game Magic Casters

As another part of my Halloween treats, here’s another list about an archetype that is tightly related with one of those things in Halloween AND video games overall.

Witchcraft. Sorcery. What does witches and sorcerers use? Magic and Spells.

And we got plenty of them in video games. As we all know of, magic is a fascinating concept which when learned, allows various supernatural feats to be done by manipulating the fabric of nature itself. This is most commonly shown with the manipulation of the forces of nature, such as fire, lightning, earth and many more. In video games, this tends to be the tool of smart people who might not be that fit physically, but their intelligence and knowledge enable them to dabble with the intricacies of magic spells and lay down great destruction just as good or even better than their physical compatriots.

This list will consist of the characters that I think has the greatest potential when it comes to spell-casting and having enough varieties when it comes to magic and the destruction they bring. They’re not always limited to offense magic, sometimes healing magic counts… but we’re looking for more offensive magic. And magic has got to be their main forte, it should be their magic that is feared, not their physical forte. And also, maybe it’s just me, but I like varieties a lot better… so for those who are in this list, it’s all expressed with how variative they can be, not just how destructive their magic is.

And as usual, only from games I have played.

Okay, that’s enough talk. Click on the ‘Read More’ link below to see the list, and if you like it… like & drop a comment. The magic… begins here.
