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

A Protagonist is 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 main characters of their own stories. Should they have heroic qualities, they also considered as Anti-Heroes.

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), Dan from Dan Vs. (who formulates destructive revenge plans against anyone he thinks has wronged him), 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 character is the main hero of the story. One example is Major Chip Hazard from Small Soldiers.

For obvious reasons, these characters are rarely Pure Evil, though there are huge exceptions such as Cyrus and The Governor.
