The Unlikable Good Guy

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 23, 2021



Some characters are the heroes.

Some characters are the villains.

And some characters are just punchable. But not actually bad, or even antagonists- though sometimes they can be towards specific characters rather than the general plot goals.
