Villains' Insecurities


Jekyll: Its over now I know inside, No one will ever know...The sorry tale of Edward Hyde, And those who died...No one must ever know...They'd only see the tragedy, They'd not see my intent, The shadow of Hyde's evil...Would forever kill the good that I had meant...Am I a good man? Am I a mad man? Its such a fine line between a good man and a...(Hyde: Do you really think That I would ever let you go? Do you think I'd ever set you free? If you do I'm sad to say, It simply isn't so. You will never get away from me!)
~ Dr. Henry Jekyll and Mr. Edward in the song "Confrontation".

Many heroes and former villains may have insecurities, for heroes because of things like his/her friends may not trust or he/she is not good enough or for former villains that he/she will never be good and he/she will always be evil because of past events.

Examples

  • Dr. Henry Jekyll/Mr. Edward Hyde: No doubt the most famous example. Ever since Dr. Henry Jekyll turned into his dark side Edward Hyde, he kept getting constant anxieties, because of all of the terrible things Hyde had done (which ironically Jekyll had done) and Hyde wants him to keep taking the potion.
  • Tim Drake: Similar to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on the account of the Joker.

Quotes

Sunset Shimmer: You're never gonna get away with this. Adagio Dazzle: Why? Because you didn't? Oh, we know all about you, Sunset Shimmer. You've got quite the reputation at Canterlot High. Sunset Shimmer: I've changed! I'm in a much better place now! Aria Blaze: Waiting in the wings while your friends have all the fun? Adagio Dazzle: Oh, yes, you girls are so tight. And yet... they didn't ask you to be in the band. Aria Blaze: Probably afraid no one would want to see them play if she was in the group. Sonata Dusk: Too bad! So sad! Adagio Dazzle: If it's any consolation, no one is going to remember you at all by the time we're done.

(Edward Hyde: Yes, Henry. Look, but don't touch. That's your way.) Dr. Henry Jekyll: Just shut up. I won't be tricked again. (Edward Hyde: Tricked? You've known what I was about each time you drank the formula.) Dr. Henry Jekyll: Liar. I am a good man. (Edward Hyde: Who's lying now? You want it, even more than you want her.) Dr. Henry Jekyll: No. (Edward Hyde: You can't shut me out forever. Drink the elixir.) Dr. Henry Jekyll: No. (Edward Hyde: She barely even looks at you...) Dr. Henry Jekyll: Be quiet. (Edward Hyde: SHE LOOKED AT ME.)

(Prince Siegfried: Rue.) Rue: Yes? (Prince Siegfried: I want you to come with me into the story as my princess.) Rue: But I...I have the Raven's blood inside of me. (Prince Siegfried: Raven's blood. I wonder if it's still running inside my veins as well. Fakir: Prince... Prince Siegfried: Fakir, according to the story, I'm supposed to love everyone, but...but right now I...right now, I simply want to love Rue the most out of anyone.)

Fun and games. Boy wonder playing hero. Fighting off bad guys and no one ever gets... oh, God. I killed him. I didn't mean to. I tried so hard to forget. But I still hear the shot. Still see the dead smile. Every night the dreams get stronger... he's there when I sleep. Whispering! Laughing! Telling me that I'm as bad as he is! We're both the same!
~ Tim Drake over his anxiety on the Joker.
