Removal proposal: Kevin (Sin city)

Both he and Rourke Jr are serial killers but kevin doesn’t manage to be as heinous as Rourke.

It is a criteria that if there exists more than one PE in a universe they must be heinous in their own way.

Kevin fails that. While he did kill and eat at least 7 prostitutes, it is still not as bad as Rourke who raped and killed over 30 children, which is even worse thing a serial killer could do and therefore disqualifies Kevin on the heinous level.

Killing and eating 7 prostitutes is extremely evil (duh!) but not as evil as raping and killing 30 children.

Verdict: you decide!

PE Discussion: Bogeyman (Marvel)

today I open a discussion on a rather obscure Marvel villain but one who is absolutely a Pure Evil, however I can not add it without a vote and discussion - the article needs a lot of work but here's why I feel the PE title fits to this guy.


he is a psychopathic villain who has made it his life's work to torture, kill and absolutely torment mutant children and their loved ones.. this is a full-grown man who gets his kicks off the unspeakable psychological torment of very young victims, the oldest member of Power Pack is only 19 and the youngest was only *FIVE* years old when she began her "superhero" career (which shows comics don't have much for child safety laws but anyway).


This.. creature.. happily tortures children as young as five years of age, calling them "freaks" and threatening to cannibalize them for being "evil" mutants, when he is a guy who sold his own humanity so that he could obtain demonic powers and kill / torture more mutant kids.


this is what makes him especially vicious even by supervillain standards, he could easily try and fight X-Men or Avengers or adult heroes but he specifically targets the under-age Power Pack and truly delights in traumatizing them - he even went as far as kidnapping their families and forcing them to expose their powers to their parents, causing extreme PTSD.. he then paraded the families around a literal Hell on Earth to further mind-r***e them, intent on killing them.. of course his bloated ass was defeated before he could achieve that end-goal but it is still extreme levels of sadism even for comic book bad guys.


he also does crap like kidnapping young children, forcing them to firebomb their own homes and then tries to sell them off to demons for eternal torment - all because he gets his jollies out of the anguish of mutant children.

PE Removal: Diablo (Primal Rage)

There isn’t really much to say about Diablo beyond that he’s made of evil. Also in the Avatars novel and the unreleased sequel, even he, the evil incarnate, was disgusted by Necrosan’s plan to hatch his brood through human bodies.

Remor

Alright, so here is the second part of that Fran Bow duo from before. I've been debating with myself on this one for a while, but here goes.


The work: Fran Bow is a point-and-click style adventure horror game following the titular ten-year-old protagonist as she searches for answers on who killed her parents.


The villain: Remor, the Prince of Darkness, the Terrible Black. He is one of the two main antagonists of the game and is responsible for the deaths of not only Fran's parents, but the torment of many, many more.

Who is Remor? What has he done? Remor is the son of Mother Mabuka, the queen of all evil and ruler of the Fifth Reality. Remor is the leader of a dark race of beings called Kamalas, which feed on pain and suffering on both physical and emotional levels. For hundreds of years, Remor led his feral minions in wars and raids on the peaceful realm of Ithersta, wrecking havoc and bringing wickedness to a world without evil. He also ruled over the Kamalas in the human world, who lingered around people (especially children) with physical or mental pain and tormented them, feeding off of their suffering.


Eventually, Remor was contacted by Dr. Oswald Harrison, who wanted Fran Bow as a test subject. Remor agreed and possessed Fran, forcing her to ritualistically murder and dismember her parents before allowing her to be captured by Harrison's minions and taken to his asylum. Once Fran was there, Remor acted like a sadistic guard, stalking and tormenting Fran to force her to stay there. Whenever Fran does try to escape, he uses magic to damage her mind and cause her to pass out, allowing the doctors to recapture her. However, one day, she uses new tools and the unseen aid of one of her friends to escape. Though Remor attacks the girl several times; he is chased away by her friend's magic.


After escaping both the asylum and the vengeful spirits of Clara and Mia Buhalmet, Fran comes across a bridge. Remor attacks her and her cat Mr. Midnight on the bridge, destroying it so the girl may fall to her death. Bothe survive by being transported to Ithersta, but Remor sends his Kamalas to torment the girl and encourage her to commit suicide, while also sending some to attack and seriously wound the doctor of Ithersta who helped her.


Fran ends up getting help from Ithersta's Wizard and King to get back to the human world, where she eventually gets help from her asylum doctor, Marcel Deerne, into figuring out the mysteries behind her parents' murders. However, just as they are discovering what is going on, Remor finds them and attacks, mentally damaging them and forcing them to pass out, before delivering them to Harrison. Fran gets loose and searches for a way out, and eventually comes across Remor, who explains that he enjoys feeding from her suffering, and even reveals to her a vision of her killing her parents just to force her to watch and convince her to kill herself. Fran doesn't (she goes on to confront Harrison and subsequently be shot), but Remor is left undefeated when Fran is taken to a sanctuary where she will be safe.


Mitigating Factors? Remor is the son of the ruler of darkness, so he is inherently a dark being. He does show that he knows the difference between good and evil, but just hates good and is repulsed by it.

Remor also feeds off of pain and suffering, perhaps meaning that he needs it. However, he does clearly state that he enjoys it, and even tells Fran at one point that she is "the manifestation of his desires" and "he can do whatever he wants" with her, showing that he is torturing her beyond what he "needs" to survive.


Heinous Standard? Remor is one of the most overarching evils in the game, being not only responsible for Fran's suffering and trying to kill her several times, but is also the leader of the beings that torment humans as a lifestyle. His mother Mabuka, is evil but honorable, and the rest are tragic figures or minor obstacles. The one exception is Dr. Harrison, who was previously accepted for his horrific experiments and the one that brought Remor into the picture in the first place.


Verdict? A little iffy considering what the mitigating factors could be, but leaning towards "yes" as he goes beyond what he needs to do just because he loves doing it and likes to see good things suffer.

Mysterio (Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) should have its own page.

Recently, this was voted down for being pure evil, but there are a number of users, myself included, think that this version of Mysterio deserves its own page.

I think Satou from Ajin is pure evil why is he list as not?

Yep everytime I put him as pure evil its erase? Why? This guy is pure evil he doesn t care about Ajin revolution Truthfully. He kills people for fun and has no reason besides it being for fun and entertainment. This guy in terms from motive and brutalities is far more evil than Makishima from Psycho pass and Acnologia as he has no excuse whatsoever. Why is not pure evil?? Considering Acnologia and Makishima is list as one? He is one of most pure evil anime character alongside Major, Junko and Light Yagami In my opinion.


His goal is killing people and causing destruction. Nothing more. If this is not pure evil. i don t know what is.

Recreating One-Line and Plagiarized Pages

If a page is deleted for being a one-line article or for being plagiarized, do you think it is necessary to request admin permission to recreate those? Those are usually ones that don't have a problem with inclusion, they were just poorly written.

Pure Evil Removal: Acnologia

So I recently finished reading Fairy Tail a few days ago. Disappointing arc but satisfying ending. Anyways, Acnologia, the endgame antagonist has been under this category for awhile and honestly...I don't buy it.


Acnologia...cool looking villain and all, but lord, this guy has the most generic and rushed motive. He wants nothing but destruction. Why? Apparently, the dragons killed his family and stuff, so he got mad and now he wants to destroy everything. It's so shoehorned that it's hard to tell if he even has a proper moral agency. And for a bonus, he's given some kind of like honorable send away where he declares Natsu as the king of dragons, claiming him to be worthy...?


You have villains like Zeref, Mard Geer, Jellal, Faust and Irene. All of which had more fleshed out motives and have done more heinous acts, but none of them are considered pure evil. Acnologia really doesn't stand out, he's like the rest of them. Hell, Madara was a much more threatening villain and yet he's not even pure evil either.


What are your thoughts?

Pure Evil Proposal: General Morando

Here's a really heinous character that I'm proposing to be Pure Evil. This one is General Morando from the TV show known as 3 Below, the second installment to the Tales of Arcadia trilogy. Although only Part 1 of 3 Below has been released, this character has become so diabolical there's no point in redeeming him now.


CHARACTER'S TRAITS ✓

(Does the character have a define personality? Or is it a one-dimensional character such as a mindless destroying beast?)


General Morando is not one-dimensional. He's a sadistic and cold-blooded tyrant who is very clever, and enjoys hurting others. He is also motivated by envy and a hunger for power, as he wants to overthrow King Fialkov and Queen Coranda as the ruler of the alien planet Akiridion-5.


HEINOUS STANDARDS ✓

(Does the character commit acts that are extremely heinous and unforgivable? Does the character stand out from the rest of the villains featured in the story they are part of?)


Ah, this one, he certainly passes. Let me go over it in detail.


*General Standard: The first heinous standard. At first, he doesn't seem heinous enough, but as Part 1 progressed, it's shown he goes far and beyond to pass this.

Morando was exiled from Akiridion-5 for trying to overthrow the King and Queen. However, he also knew of Varvatos Vex, who was an Akiridion commanding officer whose family was slaughtered by the Zaron Brotherhood, a group of three bounty hunters who work for Morando. As such, Morando promised Varvatos that if the latter lowered the shields, Morando would not hurt anyone. The weak-minded Varvatos betrayed the King and Queen by doing so, but Morando did not keep his end of the bargain, and harmed the Akiridions anyway, which is when Varvatos saw the error of his ways and is now trying to make up for his treachery by swearing to protect Aja and Krel (the two main protagonists of 3 Below and children of the King and Queen).

Morando also forces his alien species, the Akiridions, to worship him instead of having hope that the King and Queen will come back. This is shown since one of Morando's bodyguards lies that the King and Queen are dead, and orders an Akiridion child to worship Morando or be slaughtered, saying that there is only one warning, and there are no second warnings; he was probably ordered to do this by Morando since the latter does not want anyone to have hope that he will, one day, be overthrown.

What else does Morando do? He speaks through his evil robot, Omen, and threatens the leader of the Zeron Brotherhood, Alpha, with Omen grabbing him by the neck. Morando threatens Alpha, saying that if the latter fails on his mission, he will suffer, and that the latter now answers to Omen now. Alpha nods in fear, knowing the consequences of what Morando will do to him if he fails on his quest. Morando does not do this because he's remorseful for what he did to Varvatos; it's out of sheer ire, cruelty, and malice.

Last, but certainly not least, he has the entire Akiridion citizens watch Aja as she is cornered by Omen so the latter can brutally kill her, who has been programmed to hunt down Aja and her brother, Krel.

All of the aforementioned acts are enough to push Morando beyond a generic tyrant.


*In-Story Standard: The second heinous standard. In the first installment of the Tales of Arcadia trilogy (Trollhunters), Morgana, an evil wizard who existed before the creation of humans and trolls, counts as Pure Evil because she craves world chaos, forced a once-heroic troll named Angor Rot to become her slave and servant, uses a made-of-evil troll named Gunmar as a pawn, and tries to torment her former mentor, Merlin, to his death. However, I strongly believe General Morando from the second installment (3 Below) also counts as Pure Evil because he has already taken over an entire planet and all of his people, by putting the King and Queen in stasis through his armies, and forces the citizens of the planet to worship him through fear and intimidation. Plus, while Morgana is from the wizard race and uses dark magic, Morando is in his own category because he's from an alien race and uses advanced technology.


*System Standard: The third heinous standard. It's because of Morando that Akiridion-5 is ruled under a dictatorship, and Morando is the said dictator.


Morando passes all three heinous standards, so he is a surprisingly dark dictator, especially for the type of media he's from, which can be viewed in the Story Type criteria.


MORAL EVENT HORIZON ✓

(Has the villain crossed the Moral Event Horizon?)


Yes; Morando has crossed the Moral Event Horizon at least four times, all of which take him to being a super-egregious tyrant. They can all be seen in the Heinous Standards criteria.


INDIVIDUAL CAPABILITY ✓

(Does the villain use every resource they have at their disposal to cause a maximum of evil?)


Ah, yes. Morando is using each and every one of his resources to get what he wants; he's holding nothing back. He uses his knowledge and advanced weaponry to program Omen into becoming a killer robot, his deceit to manipulate Varvatos Vex to lower the shields so he can infiltrate Akiridion-5, and his authority and command of troops to rule the entire planet as a tyrant.


MORAL AGENCY ✓

(Does the villain have an agency over their actions, and can distinguish right from wrong?)


Yes. General Morando is an alien, but he has a clear moral agency. His race, the Akiridions, can distinguish right from wrong. King Fialkov, Queen Coranda, Aja, Krel, and Varvatos Vex (as a redeemed villain) are all Akiridions, but they have chosen good over evil. Morando chooses quite the opposite: evil over good.


ONLY INDIVIDUALS ✓

General Morando is an individual being, so he definitely passes this criteria.


NO REDEEMING QUALITIES ✓

(Is the villain completely devoid of any altruistic quality?)


Morando has zero mitigating factors. He's not honorable either, as he promised Varvatos Vex that if the latter lowered the shields for Morando to return, no one would be harmed. However, he deliberately broke said promise, as he enslaved the entire planet of Akiridion-5 by putting the King and Queen in stasis.


NO SYMPATHY ✓

(Is the villain completely unsympathetic and unforgivable with no Freudian excuse?)


Yes. Definitely. No tragic backstory for Morando or anything like that; he's just a power-hungry tyrant driven by sadism and envy.


SCREEN TIME ✓

(Are the villains' worst acts on-screen?)


Yes; Morando's worst acts are all shown on-screen. His first crossing of the MEH (when he manipulated Varvatos into lowering the shields) was shown in a hologram.


WORST ✓

(Is the villain the worst, or at least one of the worst characters in the story?)


While Morgana is an evil wizard, General Morando is the most evil member of the Akiridions, ruling them as an evil despot in his twisted views of law. He's one of the worst judging by this.


STORY TYPE ✓

(Is the story "normal", or purposefully over-the-top appalling? In which case, the Heinous Standards would be so high that it would be almost impossible to have a Purely Evil villain in the story.)


The Tales of Arcadia trilogy is both an urban-fantasy and a science-fantasy TV franchise aired by Netflix, and it's family-friendly. Since Morando is a surprisingly dark character for this type of media and is taken completely seriously, he easily passes this criteria, as a family-friendly series wouldn't usually have a tyrant forcing others to worship him, having an entire population watch an overpowered freedom fighter be killed brutally by a robot programmed to be evil, or manipulating others to lower their shields with a false promise just to deliberately break his promise so he can go berserk and enslave the entire world he is from.


CONCLUSION ✓

In my book? An easy and permanent keeper.

Pure Evil Removal Proposal: Steppenwolf (Justice League 2017)

I don't care what TV Tropes says, Steppenwolf from Justice League 2017 is NOT Pure Evil, he's a Generic Doomsday Villain and it's an insult to the Pure Evil category to include him here. People were up in arms when Broly was suggested for PE, but somehow Steppenwolf gets it with little fuss; at least Broly was motivated by his own sadism and desire to fight, Steppenwolf just does bad things because he's evil.


Really, the main reason why I oppose Steppenwolf being considered Pure Evil is that he's really not a character at all, he's a walking plot device. He does bad things, but there's no personality behind him that compels him to commit these actions beyond the fact that he's the antagonist. If we look at Pure Evil villains like Palpatine, the Joker, Frieza, Frollo etc, we can see that both these villains have a personality that guides their actions. Their thought process may be utterly inhuman and twisted to most moral people, but they're established well enough to make their actions believable in the story even if they are driven by things as simple as sadism, hunger for power, inflated egotism etc. Steppenwolf has none of these, instead he acts as the villain because that's his role and nothing else.


Steppenwolf, sure he may have a backstory, he conquered planets for Darkseid until he failed to conquer Earth and was banished, causing him to want to conquer Earth to redeem himself. But why did he conquer all those other planets? Because he was enslaved by Darkseid to do so? Well that makes him sympathetic and tragic, which are also disqualifiers for Pure Evil. Still I can't blame people for not recalling his backstory, I honestly forgot about it until I read his character page given how little it actually factors into the plot and his character.


In conclusion, Steppenwolf is a Generic Doomsday Villain who does bad things because he's bad. While he has a backstory, it actually makes him a sympathetic (albeit terribly done) villain and only further mitigates his status. I haven't read the comics so I don't know if the comic book version of the character was a well done Pure Evil villain, but this CGI monstrosity certainly isn't one and its an affront on the category to call him that.

PE Proposal: Abraham Dawson

I lied... This is the last EP for today:


[++'''What's the Work'''++]


"Banana Fish" is a 2018 anime based on the 80s manga of the same name. The story tells us about the relationship between a Japanese boy, Eiji Okumura, an assistant photographer who came into America and the American boy, Ash Lynx, who is a street gang leader raised by the vile Corsican Mafia, Dino Golzine. As the story progressed, it was revealed that Golzine produces a mysterious substance of a drug known as Banana Fish in order to spread it for profit. From there, the story gets progressively more complex with the stories like friendship, self-independence, regret or remorse, betrayal, cultural differences, life of the criminal underworld etc. Due to Eiji and Ash's relationship, several tragedies happened left and right and both of them tries to stop Golzine's forces once and for all.


Now, having talked with Lighty, our main villain here, Dino Golzine is not a keeper due to the infuriating last minute redeeming quality. But today, I want to propose one of his underlings who works for him and is a scientist who tries to distribute Banana Fish... Meet Abraham Dawson.


[++'''Who is He/What Has He Done'''++]


Okay, so our buddy Abraham here is actually a scientist who works for Dino Golzine. Prior to the main story 20 years ago, he and his brother, Alexis, found a substance known as Banana Fish, which is a combination of LSD and a plant derivative that can be used to brainwash people into doing whatever you want. However, the drug itself can make someone susceptible to endless torment due to said drug can amplify the emotions of nervousness such as fear and hatred.


Now, despite Alexis wants to dispose it (Although he doesn't want to destroy it due to he found Banana Fish to be an interesting substance), Abraham however has another plan with said drug: He then took a hidden stash of the drug and then went to Iraq war (Vietnam war in the manga) along with Ash's brother Griffin Callenreese. During their time in Iraq/Vietnam war, Abraham tested the drug towards the other soldiers to pit them against each other and when Griffin began to suspect Abraham, the latter then injects the drug towards Griffin which resulted on him becoming a mess and shoot several of the soldiers dead but one of them, the journalist named Max Lobo, survived said incident. Why Abraham did this? This is due to because of the soldiers bullied him and nevermind the fact that before joining the army, he also experimented on his friend to drink Banana Fish which resulted on him died.


After the Iraq war, Abraham then improves the Banana Fish and then sell it to the mafia for more profit, mainly the Corsican Mafia in which Golzine leads which also resulted on Golzine form a pact with the US Government who intent to use Banana Fish for furthering their own agenda. Terrified on discovering that Griffin is still alive and well, Abraham then shoots him in a fit of paranoia which resulted on Griffin dying in a blood loss. However, this is not his worst act yet...


His worst act is that when the Chinese gang manages to capture Ash's friend, Shorter Wong, for experimentation, Abraham then willfully experiments on Shorter and brainwashes him under the pretense that Eiji was the source of his pain and fear which resulted on Ash forced to watch the horror thanks to Arthur as Shorter tries to murder Eiji. This also resulted on Ash putting Shorter out of his misery. Abraham's reaction to this? He's fucking enjoying it along with Arthur like a sick fuck he is. Fortunately, he was killed by Yut-Lung during the raid of the Banana Fish's lab and was begging to Yut-Lung that he will promises that he made a cure for it so that he could save his own skin. But hey! Rice already become a porridge so Abraham is murdered for good yay!


[++'''Freudian Excuse/Mitigating Factors'''++]


Well, the reason why he ended up testing the Banana Fish towards the soldiers? Is because he was bullied by said soldiers and as a result, he then used Banana Fish in order to massacre those soldiers. The manga however, said that he was prejudiced because--I"m sorry if I offended everyone to the point that you will vote no because of this-- he was discriminated due to him being a Jew.


But this? Doesn't hold up at all and the discrimination is only present in the manga but not in the anime where Abraham said that he was bullied. Nevermind the fact that Griffin, one of the soldiers in Iraq war, has done nothing wrong with him and even before joining the Iraq/Vietnam war, he was established as a sociopath as he is by testing the Banana Fish drug to his own friend and him selling the drug to mafia and conspire with them in order to gain more profit isn't related to his FE at all. Also, before his death, he plead to Yut-Lung that he promises to make a cure of Banana Fish but here's the thing: Abraham just did this to save his own skin and doesn't want to die on Yut-Lung's hands so no... Nothing holds up at all.


[++'''Heinous Standard'''++]


Alright, here's where it gets truly tricky and I'm not gonna downplay it: Banana Fish has a ridiculously high heinous standard. Golzine and Yut-Lung set the standard a bit high especially they were responsible on several atrocities especially on Golzine who is responsible of Pedophilic Sex Ring that sells to young boys and conspiring with Government to sell Banana Fish and Yut-Lung also conspire with Golzine to make Ash's life a living hell and don't get me started on him trying to eliminate his family. Both Golzine and Yut-Lung doesn't count which is a shame.


There's also another scientist, Dr. Mannerheim, who experiments on criminals by lobotomizing them and then there's Foxx who brutally murders several gang members and innocents in the manga as far as I recall. Also, rape and murder here is pretty common just like in Law & Order SVU and rape in this manga? Are truly treated as abhorrent. So yes, Banana Fish has an exceptionally high heinous standard.


Dawson's worst crimes might be shared with few others. But what sticks me on him is that he is truly responsible of the selling on Banana Fish's drugs despite Alexis created it first which sets pretty much the whole plot in the anime itself. That and he also had a standalone crime about murdering the soldiers in Iraq War in order to test them and personally murders Ash brother in fear to save his own skin... Yea. And he's also enjoying tormenting Ash about the thing that he has done which adds a bit on his extra dickishness and is a rather hatable person to boot to the point that I have a special reservation on him. And btw, despite both Dawson and Mannerheim are scientist who work with Golzine, Mannerheim actually has a higher resources compared to Abraham so I think no issue here. But still, I'm torn on this one.


[++'''Final Verdict'''++]


Personally, I think that his actions are hatable enough to the point that I actually have a special reservation on him and this guy ended up to becoming one of my most hated character in the media along with Yut-Lung and sadly he doesn't count due to many mitigating factors that surrounding him. And I understand if you're unsure on Abraham qualify on this list due to the concern regarding the heinous standard as a whole but I personally think he makes it just a little bit. Until then, thoughts?

PE Proposal: Kurara Tendo/Sparrow Woman

Another EP for today because why not?


[++'''What's the Work'''++]


"Release The Spyce" is a 2018 spy anime from the brains of the "Akame Ga Kill" (Yes! That Akame Ga Kill) and "Yuki Yuna Is A Hero". And is said to be the spiritual successor of "Princess Principal". The story focuses on a seemingly ordinary girl named Momo Minamoto that lives on a fictional city known as Sorasaki City who ended up joining a spy organization known as Tsukikage in which the members was revealed to be her own classmates. Together, they fight against the Nebulous Evil Organization known as Moryo who had a sinister motives. They also used a performance-enhancing substance called "Spyce" to temporarily supercharge their bodies, but it only works on young girls in order to protect Sorasaki City take down Moryo's evil plans once and for all.


Now yes, I mentioned that Moryo is a truly consistent threat in this anime. But of course, there is a top enforcer who is the true threat of the Tsukikage and a very personal foe to them. The true threat who headed Moryo in question? Is known as the Sparrow Woman or better known as Kurara Tendo which is a candidate I want to propose today.


[++'''Who is She/What Has She Done'''++]


Kurara Tendo is the top enforcer of Moryo and despite there are a lot of higher ups who headed Moryo, Kurara is actually the leader of Moryo on Sorasaki's section and Tsukikage's most consistent threat through the series. She is also called the Sparrow Woman due to the Sparrow that she had on the shoulder that is used as a mere accessories. She's mostly stay faceless until Episode 6. Her atrocities? Oh boy... This requires a lot of explanations due to being a consistent threat on most of the Episodes.


Okee-Dokee, Tendo's establishing character moment is that she tested one of her drugs towards her two subordinates which causes them physical agony or ended up in a vegetable state. She calls them incompetents because they only useful as a test subject for her drug after they were being tested... This is her establishing character everybody. It was revealed that in the show, she conspired with the traitor in Tsukikage in order to take Tsukikage down and gaining more information regarding the traitor via some of her collaborators.


Among other things she had done other than her establishing character moment? It was revealed that she is also behind the factory that made some robots for military for smuggling in order to hide a data that has a blueprint for ominous like building and she was also revealed to be conspiring with other restaaurants and also a secret sponsor of a brothel in order to do drug trading which resulted several of the women getting kidnapped and forced to work in said brothel by using the drug in order to gain more profit. While they were safe, the effects of the drugs still there.


In Episode 3, in order to gain more info regarding the traitor, Tendo observe her two subordinates, Byakko, a chibi assassin from a clan known as Togen and Dolte, a Brawn Hilda fighting against each other. After Byakko wins said fight, Tendo then dispatched Byakko in the fight against Tsukikage and orders her to drink a gelatin under the pretense that it was made with sincere devotion and taste quite sweet. It was revealed that said gelatin? Was actually a drug that can wipe a person's mind when they experienced fear in order to remove some information and suspicions. This was shown when the Tsukikage members forces to interrogate Byakko regarding the information of Moryo. In the meantime, Tendo smuggled some other drugs in another place and uses a military doll smuggling as a decoy in order to avoid suspicions.


In order to defeat Tsukikage, she also gave Dolte some drugs that made her into a mindless Hulk Like creatures that prefers to cause destruction in her path. She is also using some dummy companies, Kyuten Science and Hama Science that produces the SDM guy called Joji that one of the Tsukikage members face in fight in Episode 4 and it was also revealed that she conspired with an Italian Mafia in Sorasaki City in order to smuggle more drugs and use them as a decoy to avoid more suspicions which resulted them getting eliminated by Tsukikage by ease. When said Mafia group leader, Emo Pacino, complained to Tendo about being used by decoys, Tendo then brutally murders him and his three subordinates in a cold blood.


In Episode 5-6, she then tries to look after one of the Tsukikage members, Hatsume Aoba, in order to get more information regarding their members and their hideout and because of this, she then sends one of her subordinates, Theresia, to a similar school in which Momo and her friends went into. Before this, she also orders Theresia to drink a gelatin which is revealed to make a person explode themselves (Considered the ingredients in the gelatin are frequently used for suicide bombings? Yeah... And this was confirmed in Episode 8).


In Episode 7, she then tries to launch an ominous activity known as the Dispersal Experiment which is revealed to be spreading some drugs to a certain district on Sorasaki via her drones by disguisng herself as a random male citizen. Said drugs take form as a purple gas that causes the whole district ended up making people brainless and the whole district getting plunged into anarchy. We saw this effect such as some cars crashing through buildings or street property, some of the mindless people trashing the bank and one of the people who got affected by said drug almost beat up Momo's grandmother as a result of Tendo's actions. Made it worse that one of the Tsukikage members, Goe, got infected by said drugs and ended up eliminating the members of a Yakuza Gang. When Hatsume tries to cure Goe, the latter almost cries and almost punches Goe. Although Tendo's actions have 0 fatalities in Episode 7, the damage she had been caused are still there. In the end of episode 7, she then tries to execute a certain project known as Gekkako Project on a certain date in order to make Moryo's agenda to rule the world a lot more successful.


It was revealed that two years ago, when Tsukikage tries to stop one of the Moryo's members to drop some satellites into the country's most critical sites, she then personally executes one of the Tsukikage members, Nagaho, which is revealed to be a mentor of another Tsukikage members, Yuki Hanzomon, by slashing her with a katana which resulted on Nagaho performing a suicide attack with a bomb in order to defeat Tendo. Made it worse that Yuki witnessed said accident and was revealed that Tendo is still alive even after two years. She is also responsible of the destruction of the Moryo's base by activating some bombs with her katana and also gave Yuki a scar on her right eye. This traumatizes Yuki two years later and made it worse that Tendo gloated about this in the next episode.


In Episode 10, she was disguising herself as an innocent CEO of Kyuten Science, Fumiko Torimaru and when she was captured by Tsukikage, she drops her facade and revealed to the Tsukikage member that she is also conspiring with the traitor who is also the member of Tsukikage, Mei Yachiyo. While Mei is busy eliminating some Tsukikage members, Tendo then personally knocks Momo and taunting Yuki about trying to kill Momo via her neck. After this, she then brutally slashes Yuki via her robot while forcing Yuki to witness the horror as her mentor is seemingly died before her eyes. Luckily, it was revealed that Yuki is still alive in Episode 11 but the emotional scar is still there.


After said incident, she then brought the rest of the Tsukikage members that were still alive in order to torture them to extract more information and after she had done with them, she will use them as a test subject and she also intends to break their spirits even further. We also revealed the information regarding the project that Tendo will execute.


It was revealed that the Project Gekkako is actually a mass brainwashing project. Tendo and the other of the Moryo members will spread a gas which is revealed to be a drug like substances via the ominous like building I mentioned earlier and the effect is like this: The drugs in question will cause the consciousness of an individual to dim within a few minutes when entering the body and most of the people will lose their sense of self and when the phase is complete, they will reach the state of nothingness which will make them easy to brainwash by Moryo. She plans to do this on Sorasaki City first and once its succeeded, she will do this on the global scale. We saw some of the effects a bit regarding the brainwash with some of the citizens of Sorasaki City getting a bit of a physical pain during the brainwash.


Oh! And in the same Episode regarding Tendo's intent on brainwashing other people, when Theresia failed to defeat the Tsukikage, Tendo personally punishes her by slashing her arm while leaving her to die. Although it was revealed that in the end of the Episode, she was fell into coma. During the final fight against Moryo and Tendo, Tsukikage almost manages to stop Tendo's evil plans once and for all by destroying the device. Only to be revealed that Tendo had a backup switch. But fortunately, she was stopped by Momo and during the final fight, she taunted Momo about her dead father. But even then, Momo manages to win against Tendo and the latter lets herself fell to her death while the brainwashing device is destroyed, killing the Evil Mastermind once and for all.


[++'''Freudian Excuse/Mitigating Factors'''++]


Here's where it gets a little bit tricky. It was revealed that some of what Tendo's doing such as Project Gekkako or drug smuggling? Was ordered by the higher ups of Moryo herself. The issue is this: Tendo gleefully executes their orders and seemingly loves her job. And when most of the Moryo's higher ups are eliminated in the final Episode, Tendo doesn't even bat an eye on them getting knocked unconscious and continues the project anyway in order to rule the world as a goddess.


Another one is that in some episodes, Tendo has a bit of cordial relationship with her sparrow, Chitchi. But the problem here is that her relationship is very very limited to only "They're not strong enough right Chitchi?" or "Where did I go wrong on training my subordinates Chitchi?" and her relationship with her bird doesn't develop at all and she mostly treats it as an accessory that she snuggles sometimes like Bloefeld, nothing more nothing less.


Also, she has a seemingly okay relationship with Byakko and it's revealed that she didn't kill her in the end of the day. But keep in mind that she was also given a gelatin that erase some people memories and she didn't kill her due to pragmatic reasons because she wants to keep the relationship between Moryo and Togen Clan on a positive note and their relationship didn't develop further and only treats it as more like a business relations rather than intimate relationship.


Also, in Episode 10-11, she seemingly develop a good relationship between Mei who betrays the Tsukikage. But she also treats them like other subordinates in the end of the day and she did scolds Mei because she causes too much bang in the building during the fight with her disciple. Personally I think that moment doesn't disqualify her as it is more like "Lack of aestethic" standard more than a genuine one. Nevermind the fact that she hates other Tsukikage members and when Mei betrays Tendo and was revealed to be a double agent to Tsukikage, Tendo warns Mei that she drank the same poison that Theresia drank and she will explode once she betrays her (Fortunately it didn't happen as the poison was neutralized by Hatsume) so yeah...


Aside from that, nope... She only views her subordinates as a mere subordinates and has no hesitation to eliminate them, nothing more and like I said, while she has a bit of a cordial relationship with Moryo's higher ups, she doesn't bat an eye when most of them knocked unconscious and she happily executes most of the Moryo's schemes. The only thing that might be mitigating is that She's HOOOOOOOOOOOOT... [[https://i.imgur.com/WkgGkhn.jpg One of the most attractive female villains I've ever seen]] but hey! That doesn't mitigate anybody so that's something.


[++'''Heinous Standard'''++]


I'm not going to sugarcoat it but 2 years ago prior to the main story, there's also a former Moryo top enforcer who tries to drop several satellites in the country critical sites, in Episode 8 there's also a terrorist organization head of Okinawa who eliminates some of the Tsukikage spies in Okinawa's branch and took one of the agent's relative as a hostage, there's also a kidnapper in Episode 6 who took Hatsume and Theresia as a hostage and plans to sell them in a highest bidder and then there's Mei who seemingly follows Moryo's orders gleefully (Until it was revealed that she faked it all along in the end).


But even with that being said, I think Tendo soars the baseline given that she is a truly consistent threat in most of the Episode and is responsible of several atrocities that was committed in the series. And she also have a quantity (Brainwashing people on global scale) and personal crimes on her belt so no issue here and while you could argue that the atrocities can be traced back to the Moryo's higher ups, she committed said atrocities with pleasure and seemingly loves her job so yeah...


[++'''Final Verdict'''++]


In the end, I think she's a keeper. I understand if you find her hard to qualify due to the mitigating factors that she had and the issues regarding the heinous standard. If she qualifies, I actually have a good image just for her. Until then, thoughts?
