Hello! This is Noel Kozuki of spitirual writer.
We call girls like Cinderella, Rapunzel, Ariel as “Disney Princess”,
and we call persons like Jafar, Maleficent or Ursula as “Dieny Villains”.
Surprisingly, Ralph who is the hero of “Wreck it Ralph” is said that bad guy.
But I noticed that in the movie of “Wreck it Ralph”, no one used the word “vullains”. Everyone used “bad guy” instead.
Both of those words have mean of “bad guy”. But when I studied these words in more detail, I found the great differences!
I looked up the meaning in ” COLLEGE DICTIONARY 5th edition”.
First, I found the meaning of “bad”. The distionaru said,
1 a) not good; not as it should be
b)defective in wuality; below standard; inadequate
2 shouwing a lack of talent, judgement, aptitude, skill, etc.
3 a) not pleasant; unfavorable; disagreeable
b) sour; irritable; cross
4 rotten; spolied
5 incorrect; faulty; erroneous
6 a) wicked; immoral
b) not behaving properly; mischievous
7 causing injury; harmful
9 ill; in poor health
10 sorry, distressed
11 offensive; disgusting
12 unpaid and not collectible
13 Law defective; not valid; void
14 [Slang] very good, stylish, effective, etc.
Next, I looked up the meaning of “villain” in same dictionary.
1 a person guilty of or likely to commit great crimes; evil or wicked person; scoundrel
2 a wicked or unprincipled character in a novel, play, etc. specif. the chief such character opposed to the protagonist
3 someone or something regared as the cause of a problem, difficulty, injustice,etc.
So I could found what is differences between “bad guy” and “villain”.
These words explain that “bad guys” are bad.
But difference from just bad guy, villains are lack of their moral sence.
Actually, Ralph has a short temper. But he has also kind heart.
He shared his cherry that he robbed from Pack-Man to his friends, and he found the job for them in the end of the sotry.
Of cource, some of prople might to judge Ralph is a bad guy. But, his bad point can controll if he wish.
On the other hand, bad guys called “villains” are not having their moral, so they are not same as Ralph I think.
For instance Turbo or Mother Gothel, they changed a person’s life for their own ego. ( These are just one of examples. )
So we can know Ralph is a bud guy, however he isn’t very very bad guy.
In the first place, if Ralph is true bad guy, he will never mind how many times he break penthouse, and what should he do to join everyone.
He is a bad guy, but he has a hero heart in same time.
Thank you for your reading!
I wish you all the best!
