Things aren’t always what they seem in the world of villains and heroes. Sometimes, those we perceive as the bad guys turn out to have hidden virtues. Read further to learn about ten villains that forum members believe were actually the good guys.
1. Ken, Bee Movie (2007)
Many users voted for Ken, the boyfriend from Bee Movie. Let’s face it, falling in love with a bee is pretty bizarre! It is only natural for someone to feel upset when their girlfriend starts dating a bee. He had every right to be frustrated and concerned about the situation. I mean, who wouldn’t be?
2. Iceman, Top Gun (1986)
Iceman may have seemed like the bad guy in the movie, but many members commented he was looking out for everyone’s safety. Maverick was a reckless pilot. Iceman was simply calling him out on his dangerous behavior.
3. Tom, Tom & Jerry (1940-1967)
Tom, the housecat, is only doing his job, keeping his family’s home safe from pests. Cats are natural predators, and hunting and catching small creatures like mice is in their nature. By doing so, he’s helping his owner prevent food contamination and protecting her from potential illnesses. Jerry, however, is the one trespassing and stealing.
4. Roy Batty, Blade Runner (1982)
Roy Batty, a replicant built to resemble a human, wanted to live longer while being hunted down. It’s understandable that he would fight back and become violent to protect himself. After all, who wouldn’t want to extend their own life if facing imminent death?
5. Stu Dunmeyer, Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
Stu may have been painted as the bad guy in the movie, but many users share that he was trying to build a relationship with his girlfriend’s children. He cared about them and wanted to influence their lives positively.
6. Norrington, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
Everyone loves Captain Jack Sparrow, but Norrington was doing his job as a naval officer, trying to protect innocent people from the dangers of piracy. Pirates were notorious for their acts of theft and violence, so, understandably, he wanted to bring them justice.
7. Chef Louis, The Little Mermaid (1989)
Chef Louis had a role in preparing meals. When he discovered Sebastian, the crab, he saw it as an opportunity to create a unique dish. While his pursuit of Sebastian may have seemed intense, it was all in the context of his culinary profession.
8. The Trix Rabbit
All the Trix rabbit wanted was a mere bowl of cereal, and who could blame him? Some said those kids were selfish by not sharing a single bowl with him. The poor rabbit just wanted to taste the deliciousness of the cereal like everyone else.
9. Captain Hook, Peter Pan (2003)
Captain Hook had a motive for his actions in trying to murder Peter Pan. Before they became enemies, Pan cut off Hook’s hand and fed it to the crocodile so understandably Hook would hold a grudge and seek revenge!
10. Squidward, Spongebob Squarepants (1999-2012)
One user points out that given how annoying SpongeBob was, Squidward just wanted some peace and quiet and often found himself tormented by Spongebob’s hyperactive antics. In his position, many of us would likely feel the same way!
