Kitten says, Top 10 annoying character tropes

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 1, 2012, 9:06 AM


2) The Draco in Leather Pants AKA: The misunderstood bad boy/girl

What is it? This is a character who does horrible things, but is forgiven by the fans/writer because they are hot or 'misunderstood'. You can argue that they they fit the 'Deus Angst Machia' trope but while they are similar in some ways, this character isn't defined by their angst but by their villainous nature.

What's the problem? Oh…my…god I want to punch this trope in the face. *takes deep breath*

Okay so…I think it's best to initiate this rant analysis by using the character that this trope is named after; Draco Malfoy (from the Harry Potter series). Now in canon, Draco is actually a good character because JK Rowling's intention concerning him was to make him a cowardly bully. The problem initiated with the fans, they turned Draco Malfoy into a bad boy bishounen despite him being a racist bigot mamas boy. The trope was named after a novel long fanfiction written by Cassandra Clare (The Draco Trilogy), in which she explains that Draco is a misunderstood playa when in canon he was described as nothing of the sort.

Now you may wonder, "Kitten! This trope isn't so bad because it's the fan's fault and it isn't canon!' and while I may agree with you on that to an extent, there ARE intentional 'Draco in Leather Pants' characters throughout many many stories, especially in Young adult fantasy and romance. Also, while this character is usually portrayed as male, it isn't a gender issue but more of a moral issue.

If the character constantly kills, abuses others, and is a total asshole but we are supposed to 'feel' for them because they had a harsh past or some other bullshit reason; this is an extremely offensive character.

For example, there's an anime named 'Elfen Lied' who's main character is a sociopathic killing machine named Lucy. All she does throughout the story is kill people with her mind in the most gruesome ways possible and you think to yourself 'Gee, perhaps she's the villain of the story!'. Then afterwards, it's discovered that she killed the main character's sister and father because he DIDN'T INVITE HER TO A FESTIVAL and because  she had a TWAGIC past because BULLIES KILLED HER PUPPY. The worst part is that the main character FORGIVES Lucy because she…apologises. This means that the maker of the series wanted you to forgive Lucy after being a cold hearted murderer because…they killed her puppy and made fun of her appearance and the main character didn't invite her to a festival…or something.

I'm sorry but that is a pile of bullshit.

There are people that go through bullying among other gruesome things but not all of them become killers or assholes. On the contrary, the best people I knew had HORRIBLE things happen to them because the yearn for a better world and for them to become better than the people that abused them.

To forgive horrible things like 'murder' needs redemption, NOT bullshit excuses that blame their past or society.

I…I need an aspirin.

How to fix this Firstly, if you're going to make a heroic character or an anti-hero who does or did horrible things (such as murder, abuse, rape etc) it does not make them a hero. You need to tone this down A LOT. If a character does a horrible thing and you make it to be something that is not a big deal or you want the reader to feel sorry for then, readers will RIGHTLY be offended. This is especially offensive when the other characters forgive the Draco in Leather Pants.

Another pet peeve of mine is when the Draco in Leather Pants is in love with someone else and does something awful to said character 'because of love' (like stalk them, being a jealous dick, or forcing them to do things they don't want to do). Just because they have 'good intentions' does not mean they are morally correct AT ALL. If you put the excuse that 'They wuv them so much they thought it was the right thing so it's not their fault!!!' I will frickin punch you tell you that this is not a healthy way of thinking. This is ESPECIALLY annoying if the love interest forgives the Draco in Leather pants because they are hot misunderstood and they are the only ones that can FIX them! Sorry honey but you're not a psychologist, stop it. Please avoid this at all cost and try to make the love interest act in a realistic manner.

If your character is a villain, it's much easier to fix this. Just don't make excuses for their actions and let them be villainous. It's fine to give them layers and a harsh past or even make them attractive but their actions and behavior or not excusable in any way. Sure you can find them enjoyable, who doesn't enjoy a good villain? Just don't lose focus and make this villain vital to the plot and most importantly, NO EXCUSES. They will lose the villainous essence if you do this.

Sorry if I was a little angry in this entry but…this is my personal least favorite of mine. However number one is the worst, so you guys will just have to find out tomorrow !

So any Draco in Leather Pants experiences?

I do have a character who is almost totally a complete jerk to others, but he actually gets consequences for his actions and it's clear that he's not a good person, and shouldn't be taken as a good person. But, yeah, I do hate this trope a LOT. It's just really annoying that characters who are genuinely bad people are forgiven easily or get off the hook for what they've done.

Upon rereading this top 10, this one in particular is one of the main things i personally dislike the most in a series, by showing that the main bad guy has a ridiculously petty excuse for trying genocide and missery across the world, and not only characters forgive them easily, it's expected that the audience feels bad for them too (which the latter doesn't happen because the villain is a gigantic asshole).

Yes. In my travels throughout the internet, I sometimes come across fiction where Queen Chrysalis and the changelings, ruthless emotion-eating shapeshiters from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, are portrayed sympathetically, while ponies like Shining Armor are depicted as villains. I would hear rationalizations such as "she's just trying to feed her children," even though there's no canonical evidence to support that they're her children; and even if she really was feeding her children (if they are her children), it still doesn't change the fact that she's evil, given the rest of her actions during the two-parter episode she was featured in. She was portrayed even worse in the comics - trust me, I've read them.

In spite of these facts, I... I stand guilty of this trope, because even though I acknowledge how evil these guys are, I have made my own sort of "changeling hive" where they feed on normal food instead of love. Even then, I try to retain their "evil race" overtone by having them pillage villages when they come across them. Having had these experiences, I agree that a good reason why this trope occurs is that the villains are, in your words, "hot." Once again, for these reasons I stand guilty of this trope.

Confessions aside, I agree with you whole-heartedly. Having so many sympathetic portrayals of villains not only annoys some readers, it's why they're so annoying that is even more worrying. Villains in general are supposed to be the moral counterexamples for readers to side against, and if there is a great number of fans who find them "sexy" and try to whitewash and (in some cases) turn them into wish-fulfillment devices, this not only defeats the purpose of the work, but it can also convince others to make serious mistakes out of the resulting misconceptions. Think of the fates of those poor, countless young women who go out to find "bad boys" as a result of these misconceptions, namely that they can somehow redeem their behavior, especially if these men have serious issues, such as psychopathy, sociopathy, sadism and drug addiction.

Perhaps the moral of this story is that while not everyone is "bad," there are still cases where one must put a foot down and be careful not to succumb to these feelings. Some of these villains are portrayed attractively as a metaphor for evil being tempting, so wary fans must treat them appropriately - resist the temptation; don't fall to the dark side.

Amen brother, those are points I often bring up as well when it comes to the changelings, especially their woobification and utter vilification of ponies like Shining Armor, as well as the whole "they're her children" aspect (I actually very much like the idea of seeing changeling families).

Well, I think you described most of the points about why and how it happens; it's the Draco in Leather Pants trope, where our admiration or affection for a villain can lead us to forgot that, yeah, they're supposed to be the BAD GUYS.

Fanfic writer's attempts to make them seem more "sympathetic" likely causes them to remove everything that made the character so cool/well liked in the first place, including the rationalizing or just handwaving away of their most appalling crimes. In Chrysalis' case, this involves taking a black-hearted, cackling, malevolent Disney villainess who has destroyed dozens of kingdoms and millions of lives, and turning her into a weak, pathetic crybaby who just "wants to be loved" or a beleaguered 'mommy' trying only to '"do what's best for her "babies"". 

Chrysalis gets it a lot because 1) It's pretty par for course for MLP villains, 2) She's a supposed 'sexy waifu', though she does possess a lot of villainous charisma and presence too, and 3) Her one throwaway line about feeding her subjects possesses some Potential for moral ambiguity depending on interpretation which has been exploited like hell by fanboys.

Weeeeell, for me I think in terms of fiction. It's ok to root for the bad guy or want them to do a 180 and become good because it is not real life. After all, many beloved heroes and anti heroes were ex murderers. Half the heroes in DBZ were genocidal maniacs when they first showed up.

I think it is also a matter of variety when it comes to beloved characters. I love reading fanfics where villains become good, or good guys become villains depending on how its done.

I also find it easier to feel sympathy for a villain who has a reason for being crazy or someone who at least feels that they're doing the right thing in the long run rather than someone who was just born crazy or just snapped for no reason.


I do not give excuses for my favored villains, but I do not ignore the influences that result in the outcome. Not everyone turns out the same way, the ones that turned out good may have had some kind of salvation somewhere or that one good friend some form of hope, that the villain never got. There is also the factor of different standards and desires. Sure everyone who is bullied or whatever doesn't end up bad, but it's not always a good thing. Peter Parker was bullied, he turned out to be too nice and it gets him screwed over constantly. A touch of villainy would do some people well every now and then.

I can't speak for other fans but I do not approve of murdering innocents but I can understand the route that some villains take. In the end it is just another part of fiction that some people enjoy, exploring those what if scenarios. Not to mention in many if not all pieces of fiction, the villain is never truly explored or never get what they want. We never see the end results of what they had in mind, so it inspires a lot of people to dig deeper.

In real life we want bad people to get justice, but we also want them to change that is why there is therapy in prisons. But since in real life psychopathy is incurable for now, and life long bad habits are near impossible to change, we paste this into fiction with success hoping that they will become the best heroes/lovers ever. The circumstances surrounding heroes are constantly unrealistic, so there is no reason it can't be that way for the villains IMO.

There is more I want to explain but my post is already long enough. Just my opinion on the matter.

Oh I agree that redemption stories are very captivating if well done. Like I really enjoy the Beast's character in Beauty and the Beast despite him being a jerk at the start of the film.

I assume you are refering to Vegeta from Dragon ball Z, and I have to admit that I really liked his arc. However none of the characters NOR the creator made excuses for his actions and they simply let him evolve as a character. Also Bulma never took his shit. That is the difference between the 'Draco in Leather pants' and a Redeemed villain.

Christian Grey (from Fifty Shades of Grey) is a Draco in Leather pants because he's a horrible human being however the author keeps telling us that he's worth 'fixing' despite him physically abusing the love of his life and raping her. But we are supposed to excuse him because, 1) He's hot (and this is constantly said every chapter), 2) He had a 'dark' past. Edward Cullen also falls in this category since he's constantly romanticized as a great tragic hero when he's a creepy stalker. It all depends on framing.

Now sometimes the 'fandom' is to blame for this, for example The Phantom from 'The Phantom of the Opera'. Rabid Phantom fans criticize Christine for not choosing him when he was a homicidal maniac. They excuse his actions by saying he's tormented and the fact that he had a tragic backstory, everything else is justified.

Not only this decreases the Phantom's complexity but it makes his redemption weaker. Some fans do not know that what makes a villain great is their complexity, and excusing their actions removes the complexity to their character.

You make good points as you did in your original post, but one of my main arguments was that from a fictional entertainment view it is easier to have those viewpoints. Those characters live in a fairy tale world where everything will turn out alright for the hero. Watching someone get their head cut off in a movie is one of the best parts of a film. If I saw something like that in real life, I would need therapy and sleeping pills for years.

In horror flicks many people want that annoying stupid person to die, when in real life, we would wish them a safe return even if they got on our nerves. This is how I am with some villains. They killed some children yeah, but if they had a deep psychological reason it's like a fantasy scenario where you wish you could get back at those people that hurt you, release your anger, and because you're badass and powerful no one is gonna stop you, you'll have what you believed you deserved all along. Obviously in real life we don't get revenge on the same scale as a comic villain, because of consequences and are own conscience, but we can live these scenarios or support them through are favorite villains. Like beating the shit out of someone on the street in a GTA game because you had a bad day at work.

Bulma may not have took Vegeta's shit in an argument, but she did allow herself to get pregnant by an angry alien who was still technically a bad guy in the cell saga, he had not redeemed himself yet, nor did he give a reason to believe that he would become a truly good person. (At least not on panel.) Remember, he was gonna let her and his son die if Future Trunks had not stepped in.

I am not sure if one would call these excuses but Vegeta often did boast about how being hostile was in his blood and he felt he had a right to kill because strong kills weak and all that.

I also happened to like explanations for why someone is bad, even if it's some cheesy tragic, "my father was an alcoholic," story. For me it's not always an excuse for horrible actions, but the motivation and explanation for how they turned out.

As for the complexity of a character, I think there are many factors that contribute to a good character with even more complexity to come with other story directions. For me it really depends.

I find this kind of stuff especially insulting when what made the Draco in leather pants character so great in the first place is the fact that they where irredeemably evil. Even worse is when its actually made canon. Ugh this is why the creators of any sort of product should never listen to their fandumb about this kind of stuff.

So, having someone that has brutally murdered in the past is not cool, if they're forgiven just for having a rough time.

But someone who has brutally murdered in the past and is trying to make up for it is better? Just checking, trying to figure out if it applies to an OC of mine or not.

Okay, you know what? This would actually be my number one, haha. I mean it this time. This is the worst. Good call.

This one literally makes me weep for humanity. Maybe it's just me sitting here with my criminal psychology books and etc., but this trope is sooooo completely hideous to me. Ted Bundy tried to blame his serial killer-ness on porn. A lot of serial killers have tragic backgrounds and try to use that to justify what they've done. Our society is really serial killer crazy and, in my opinion, this trope is actually potentially dangerous. It just kind of reinforces that people aren't in control of themselves and we should hold their hands no matter what they did to deserve the punishment they got.

Same thing with con men. People are like 'they can't be all bad, they're so nice!'. That. Is. The. POINT. They will gain your trust and sympathy and then screw you over. An example I'm kind of on the fence about whether or not I should hate it is Neal Caffrey from 'White Collar' (which I actually enjoy quite a bit regardless, mainly due to Matt Bomer in vintage suits). Even after all the time he spent, he is still willing to take stolen goods and run, betraying every friend he made. On the other hand, the show ultimately portrays him in a good light. It could be that the people writing it are brilliant and this is just another layer of a con, but that might be giving them too much credit.

Wow, I'm sorry. That was way too much text. @-@ Anyway, this is great, keep it up, I'll show myself out.

Unfortunately, he fell for it because that was Ted Bundy's whole schtick. He was a charming, charismatic manipulative bastard. Also people are morons, but you know. xD It almost makes him worse, imho, than the type of serial killer who just knocks a woman over the head while she isn't expecting it. Don't get me wrong, they're both horrible, but the organized Ted Bundy type serial killer makes people feel safe and then immediately betrays that sense of security. That's scary and horrible, and I can't believe people put the Leather Pants on people like that. :/

Spectra Phantom from Bakugan. The one thing he cares about in the series is power and battle, although he plans to use power to remove an idiotic, genocidal king from his planet, the way he does things almost makes it seem like the planet is better off with the king. To make things worse is that when he switches sides, he doesn't apologize, he just decides "if I can't beat the main characters or manipulate them into working for me, I might as well join him" the only thing he feels bad about is the "death" of his one follower, Gus, something that could have been avoidable since he knew Gus was doing something suicidal but chose not to lift a finger, and doesn't really matter since the king was too incompetent to kill Gus when he had a chance. Did I mention Gus and Spectra experimented on the main character's Bakugan and almost killed it, then removed the souls from all three of Gus's Bakugan to force them to evolve, and they're the only villains in that season to live to see redemption.
