Fictional Characters Wiki

Characters who sometimes act as villains and sometimes they don't. Typically, this means that they "switch sides" (i.e. go back and forth) more than twice.


These villains are only redeemed if they stop switching sides and decide to stay good in the very end of the story; otherwise, they should remain in this category. Also, none of these characters are pure evil because there is no break in the pure-evil villain's villainy. Although some of these villains may never fully redeem themselves, they are never pure evil, even if sometimes they come very close. Villains who join the heroes' side out of PRAGMATIC and SELF-SERVING needs –but still retain their villainous ways– can NEVER count as remorseful, redeemed, or On & Off. It's highly possible that these kinds of villains WILL slip back into their evil ways once their needs are fulfilled. (e.g. Sōsuke Aizen, Caesar Clown, Slade, Lord Zalgo, Makuta Teridax, Slade, Frieza, and Reed Richards from Ultimate Marvel)
