Top Ten Bad Guys Turned Good In Video Games


The Top TenXW

1Cranky Kong (Donkey Kong Series)

It's been a long time since Donkey Kong was Mario's barrel-throwing enemy. He's now grown into Cranky Kong, however, and he's simply around to advise DK and raise him right. - Garythesnail

2Captain Qwark (Ratchet and Clank Series)

In the first 2 R&C games, Qwark wasn't at his best. He teamed up with Drek in the first game, and was the main villain in the second. By the third game, he proved he was a hero after all(though an arrogant one), and since then he's been a good guy. - Garythesnail

3Knuckles (Sonic the Hedgehog Series)

He was tricked into being Sonic and Tails' enemy in Sonic 3, but by the end he teamed up. Now it's kinda weird seeing him evil back then. - Garythesnail

I agree with you Garythesnail. I was playing Sonic 3 and Knuckles came in and stole my chaos emeralds and I was like 'what Knuckles I thot we were friends! I feel betrayed! D: '

4King Dedede (Kirby Series)King Dedede is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

Dedede used to be the main villain in Kirby games, but he ended up teaming with the pink marshmallow in Kirby 64, and since then he hasn't done much villainous. He even helps you in Kirby Return To Dreamland and Triple Deluxe. - Garythesnail

5Bowser (Mario Series)Bowser or King Koopa is a video game character and the primary antagonist of Nintendo's Mario franchise.

He hasn't gone TOTAL good, but he has gotten less evil through the years. - Garythesnail

6Meta Knight (Kirby Series)Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

Another Kirby character. Meta Knight started as a nameless villain in Kirby's Adventure, became a main antagonist in Kirby Super Star, and after that I guess he gave up. - Garythesnail

7Asriel (Undertale)

The most dreadful, merciless flower in history to a lonely, crying kid? Touching. - WitheredBonnie

8Balrog (Cave Story)
9Handsome Jack (Tales from the Borderlands)
10The Amalgamates (Undertale)

The Contenders

11Dimitri Lousteau (Sly Cooper Series)

THANK YOU FOR ADDING THIS! I swear, I could never remember his name! - Garythesnail

12Gru (Despicable Me Series)V1 Comment
13Papyrus (Undertale)Probably the second most popular character from the already insanely popular 2015 indie RPG known as Undertale, Papyrus the skeleton is Sans' taller and skinnier younger brother (much like how Luigi is to Mario in the Super Mario Bros series, except that Papyrus is physically stronger than Sans) who more.
14Quasimodo (Kingdom Hearts)
15Galen Marek (Starkiller)
16Magolor (Kirby Series)

Now, hear me out-after he was a backstabbing jerk in Return to Dream Land, he came back in Dream Collection and apologized for all he'd done, and said he'd built new Challenge Stages to make up for it. Though this sudden character change is weird, especially since you MURDERED HIS SOUL, it's kinda nice. - Garythesnail

17Darth Vader (Lego Star Wars)Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.
18Egil (Xenoblade Chronicles)
19Asgore (Undertale)Asgore Dreemurr is a boss monster and the king of the monsters in the 2015 RPG Undertale made by Toby Fox . Asgore is the portrayed main antagonist who plans the acquire seven human souls and use their power to break the barrier that seals the monsters underground . Aspects of his character are hinted more.
20Alphys (Undertale)Alphys is an adorably dorky, lab-coat-wearing, bespectacled, yellow-skinned lizard scientist who resides in her lab in Hotland in the critically acclaimed cult classic RPG known as Undertale, wherein she partakes in the daily act of watching insane amounts of anime and having a vast majority of the more.
