I for one found Light's rise as very compelling. A seemingly ordinary man who sought a just world, going on an ego trip who could arguably have never actually done anything wrong. Too bad he was a high schooler, who relied on some overly absurd keikaku.

This is one of the worse ones. The villain needed to be human to fit with the themes of the story. Not some random monster.

Lil slugger is pretty good.
The witches in Madoka.

>>154297115
That doesn't give the character anymore weight, he's the same generic trope of "DOING IT FOR FUN"

You don't seem to understand the story but, above that, you don't seem to understand the point of this thread.
I shall refer you to the OP: >>154289503

This thread has absolutely fucking nothing to do with the characters themselves.

How could you not love the Seven Stakes of Purgatory? Especially when they're really your imaginary best friends who try to help you through hard times, like murdering your relatives?

Why didn't father reabsorb the other homunculi after he became god?
It would have been much more fun to see him become the smug ass bastard from before
>>
>>154289503
I like the FMA manga/Brotherhood, but that's a better origin story for Hohenheim than it is for Father.

To be honest, I found Father in general to be pretty boring. Even Honhenheim points out that he's pretty bland after getting rid of his sins.

Truly the second coming of Hitler.
>>
>>154289503
Certainly not the one you posted.
His back story is literally not explained.
He just started to exist because "magic".

Sure he was a "clone" of Hohenheim, but how was that slave owner guy able to make a "homunculus" out of another person and then literally no one else in history was able to do it. All the other homunculus are just philosopher stones.

The best antagonist origin/motivations is simply having ambition combined with a world view that is not inherently wrong but differs from the protagonist.
