Top Ten Bad Guys Turned Good In Video Games
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.
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.
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.
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: '
Like Meta Knight, he was only evil for a short time. He tried to stop Kirby from unleashing Nightmare in Adventure. Since Super Star, he's been good. All the fights since then (except for the fight in mass attack, which was weird to begin with) were either started by Kirby, or had the King being possessed by some embodiment of evil.
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.
Dedede is just plain dumb. He's not bad, he's is just a super dumb penguin who in the original Kirby game was just greedy. The only times he is ever naughty is when he is tricked or possesed ( Blame Nightmare for this). Again Dedede is a dumb penguin
Eh, I wouldn't say he's GOOD. I mean, in Galaxy he tries to take over the universe. However, he has his moments.
He hasn't gone TOTAL good, but he has gotten less evil through the years.
He's still evil
He was never really evil. In Adventure, he basically dueled Kirby to prepare him for the final fight against Nightmare. Meta Knight knows what Kirby is going to do, and prepares him for the challange ahead. He was only really evil for one subgame in Super Star (even then, he just wanted everyone to be more active).
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.
The most dreadful, merciless flower in history to a lonely, crying kid? Touching.
He should be number one
This is a movie...
Magolor Epilouge is the ultimate redemption story. Magolor betrayed Kirby and stole the master crown. He tried to take over existance, but he lost. After defeat, the crown took over. It devoured Magolor's soul, turning him into a "sad shell." Already he's remorseful. He gets killed, then banished to another dimension. However, the Master Crown breaks off his head, freeing him from it's control (and he loses most of his powers). All this means that Magolor effectively gets a second chance, one that he doesn't waste. He recovers his powers attempting to get home and apologize to Kirby for what he's done. Before he can, though, the crown returns and destroys the dimension. Magolor then uses his full, regained might to destroy the evil artifact once and for all! And guess what? He does it, redeeming himself in the process. He's helped Kirby in every game since. :)
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.
Globulous Maximus is the Main antagonist in Globs of Doom, But he was born a giant booger
Papyrus was never bad at any point in Undertale...he only tries to capture you so he can get into the Royal Guard and impress his best friend.
Ganondorf was never really the bad guy. He holds the TriForce of Power, so he's technically a hero. Ge tries to save his people (Ocarina of Time), end a war (Hyrule Warriors) and turn Bowser vack to normal (Super Smash Bros Melee) - all by himself!
He tried to restore Hyrule in Wind Waker. Enough said.
He was never the bad guy in Peter Pan.
In Super Smash Bros Brawl, he died saving his brother.
Suprised he wasn't on the list already, he is without doubt my favourite Nintendo villain of all time
