Big Bad Wannabe? 0129

Music for the Article

The Big Bad Wannabe is a villain who is seen as a significant threat but can't back it up when it comes to the crunch. The absolute level of menace varies widely, from an complete dunce having a good day, to a villain who could legitimately be the Big Bad if the Mr. Big Bad wasn't even more powerful than they are, but within a story they are (initially) presented as a big deal. Often a extreamly low ranked minion or not even part of the group at all.

There are also many ways of revealing the villain is an over-inflated threat. A school bully might run from a real fight. In the second example of an unfair circumstance gave the villain his early victory. Sometimes it's just a matter of scale; the heroes catch a criminal, but he's just a copycat, not the real mastermind he was thought to be. Alternatively the real Big Bad might outdo the wannabe or even kill the wannabe. Those that fall under this trope are also extremely vulnerable to the disrespect, both from actual Big Bads and their enemies.

Sometimes he uses cooks up a cartoonishly silly Disguise scheme to con his way into assuming authority, then conspires to take over Narnia with the help of the Empire.

An Example is Saruman from The Lord of the Rings who is by all means a dangerous villain, and even planned to supplant Sauron as Big Bad by getting his hands on the Ring himself. However, it soon becomes clear that compared to the powerful Magnificent Chessmaster Sauron he is only a Smug Snake pretender. He attacks Rohan with his entire army leaving Isengard undefended, and even then his army fails to effectively curb stomp Rohan, while underestimating the neighboring Ents. On the other hand, Sauron effectively pins down Gondor with an advance force that is a fraction of his military might and is only defeated with help from a 3,000 year old forgotten zombie army and is implied to have driven out or annihilated the neighboring Entwives during the previous era when he was more powerful.

The article represents many of these types of characters who are really weak and to prove they are strong bully others to make themselves feel good.

The image you selected was good. the only thing ed seems to be thinking of money and not hurting others.

The music was a good choice.

Enjoy your long weekend alien study lol! geek jocolor cheers cheers cheers cheers
