In contrast to the hero, who is defined by their feats of ingenuity and bravery and their pursuit of justice and the greater good, a villain is often defined by their acts of crueltycunning and displays immoral behavior that can oppose or perverse justice. The antonym of a villain is a hero. The term villain first came into English from the Anglo-French and Old French vilainwhich is further derived from the Late Latin word villanus which referred to those bound to the soil of the Villa and worked on an equivalent of a plantation in Late Antiquityin Italy or Gaul.
Vilain later shifted to villein which referred to a person of a less than knightly status, implying a lack of chivalry and politeness. All actions that were unchivalrous or evil such as treachery or rape eventually fell under the identity of belonging to a villain in the modern sense of the word. Additionally, villein became used as a term of abuse and eventually took on its modern meaning.
In classical literature, the villain character is not always the same as those that appear in modern and postmodern incarnations, as the lines of morality are often blurred to imply a sense of ambiguity. Often the delineation of Villain (Dirty) - Crooked I - Villain (File) and villains in this literature is left unclear.

The actions that fell into a villain's sphere were:. When a character displays these traits, it is not necessarily tropes specific to the fairy tale genre, but it does imply that the one who performs certain acts to be the villain.

The first is the false hero : This character is always villainous, presenting a false claim to be the hero that must be rebutted for the happy ending. Another role for the villain would be the dispatcher, who sends the hero on their quest. At the beginning of the story, their request may appear benevolent or innocent, but the dispatcher's real intentions might be to send the hero on a journey in the hopes of being rid of them.
The roles and influences that villains can have over a narrative can also be transferred over to other characters — to continue their role in the narrative through another character. The legacy of the villain is often transferred through that of bloodlines family or a devoted follower.

Because of this, a convincing villain must be given a characterization that provides a motive for doing wrong, as well as being a worthy adversary to the hero.
As put by film critic Roger Ebert : "Each film is only as good as its villain. Since the heroes and the gimmicks tend to repeat from film to film, only a great villain can transform a good try into a triumph. The English actor Tod Slaughter always portrayed villainous characters on both stage and screen in a melodramatic manner, with mustache-twirling, eye-rollingleeringcacklingand hand-rubbingThis, however, often failed to translate well from stage to screen.
