CLASS: Anti-villain, I guess? Unlike most villains in Avatar, Mai doesn't have any fantastical racism or evil agendas that she's pushing. She's just doing it for shits and giggles. With that, she's capable of working for evil people, but even then, she's mostly apathetic to the job. Once she quits working for Azula, she actually assists Team Avatar.
HOUSING: Please pick for me the wackiest housemates you can find!
BACKGROUND:http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Mai here you go!!!
In terms of western animation, there is not a single character who has given less fucks than Mai from Avatar: The Last Airbender. It's true. Absolutely nothing seems to enthrall or capture the attention of Mai. Born from a noble family and raised to be almost …show more content…
Despite being in the Earth Kingdom and dealing with its inhabitants, Mai only gives them the standard nasty attitude that she reserves for everyone. She doesn't seem to have any prejudiced views on races in the Avatar world specifically; she's an egalitarian in the sense that she just hates everyone equally! Also of note, despite her obviously lethal combat style, she never seems to go for direct fatalities. She rather disable and disarm opponents. Unlike most villains, Mai's does what she does simply doesn't have anything better to do. Even while working for the villain, Mai had her limits where she put her foot down because it was a conflict of personal interest. This ranged from getting dirty, as when she staunchly refused to get into a pipe system that would lead to her getting covered in slurry despite the possible physical ramifications of facing Azula in combat. In this instance, Mai even states that Azula can toss all the lightning she wants, she's not getting in that pipe. Other examples of her just flat out going "no." and just not giving a fuck include refusing to fight Team Avatar when they try to rescue the Earth Kingdom's bear. Rather than engage Team Avatar and successfully do her duty, Mai instead is so bored with having to watch the bear she forfeits it to Team Avatar without a fight. Perhaps the biggest piece of evidence for her status as The World's Most Half-Assed Villain(tm) is when she attacked Azula and defied her so Zuko and Team Avatar can escape the

In the world that we are living in, there are many injustices happening everyday. Although every country have a legal system, some criminals still have not been arrested or received a proper punishment. Many people believe in a savior who will come someday to bring justice for them, and punish criminals and sinners. They make stories and movies about superheroes who come to help weak people to fight against the evil. People usually have a conception that a protagonist of a story should be a good person; however, there are many stories with an anti-hero protagonist who does both good and bad things. Base on people’s point of view, that kind of protagonist can be either good or evil. My most favorite book that has an anti-hero protagonist is
From Tony Soprano to Walter White to Don Draper the anti-hero seems to have replaced the classic hero on TV as a result of 3 following major influences. Over the past few decades, due to events of the world such as wars, attacks, natural disaster instilled a mistrust in establishments such as government and journalism, which is then reflected in the popular culture with the stories told on TV. The second major influence is the shift in FCC regulations for cable and subscription content that has had a major effect on the types stories that can be told in these two mediums. And third influence is the networks breaking free from advertising pressure; subscription TV has changed the landscape of TV, clearing the path for stories that are not influenced by rating and advertising, and valuing the story itself.
She was kind, talented, and successful with a rich danna who she probably loved. She was surpassed by Sayuri, her apprentice, as she became more successful than her even though she did question geisha beliefs often. Mameha and Sayuri, later on in the movie, were great examples of geisha when they were forced to face the war closer to home. Many geisha had to sell their luxurious belongings, replace their fine kimonos with slacks, and work in factories to survive. They were both lucky to have been able to survive and experience some sort of resemblance to geisha life once
What makes a “top-notch” villain name? The arch nemesis of Harry Potter, Voldemort, and the betrayer of King Arthur, Mordred, would say it is the sinister sounding “mor” in their names. The big question is what makes “mor” give off a malevolent vibe. It is found that the use of “mor” in a villain name is usually because of the root meaning, the way it sounds, or even just the author’s pure spontaneous name-making.

Imagine a promotion someone worked all their life to get was ripped away at the last second by someone else. The promotion was something they had put all of their effort towards getting, and they rightfully deserved it. This is how the character, Iago, in William Shakespeare's play Othello felt. Instead of quietly cursing the person who gave away his position, Iago acted against the main character, Othello, in order to satisfy his thirst for revenge. Through Iago’s quest for revenge, he manipulates the other characters, acts on his psychopathic anger, and impersonates being a friend to all of the characters. This reveals his complexity as a villain and enables him to justify his actions and get what he wants.
