Did you forget, Revy? The reason I ended up here. My bosses calmly cut my life away. I was an afterthought and all for what? To protect their dirty money. Their expense accounts. Their place to eat. When you first invited me in, it was like waking up from a long sleep. My life had become the rush-hour commute, the fake laughing, lowering my head, risking my life to score points. And all of that was fine so long as I had a place to drink after work and a batting cage nearby. And just like that, none of it mattered anymore. The one who shut me awake the one who invited me in, it was you, Revy. What concerns me now is that the one woman who showed me all of this is acting just like the people who betrayed me.

You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

A Protagonist is (simply put) a character who is the central focus of a story yet does not have the traditional "heroic" qualities of a protagonist (they may cheat, steal or worse). These are the villains that are the protagonists of their own stories. Should they do have heroic qualities, they also considered as Anti-Hero.

Examples of this kind of character would be Pinky and Brain (who sought world-domination), Eric Cartman (many episodes focus on it when it comes to Jewish xenophobia), many GTA protagonists (who are criminals), and Horror characters such as Damien Thorn.

Some can be falsely seen as the "protagonist hero" as he/she is seen on the cover of the movie/book and there for the reader/watcher are being lured to believe that the charecter is the main hero of the story. One example is Major Chip Hazard from Small Soldiers.

For obvious reasons, these characters are rarely Complete Monsters, though there are huge exceptions such as Claude Speed, Alan Yates, Not Important, Michio Yuki, The Governor and Light Yagami.
