Ron the Death Eater - Television Tropes & Idioms
This is a common fanfiction cliche. It is when writers make a good character evil, or when an evil character is made a lot more evil.
For example, say a person writes a Pokemon fanfic. They decided to use Misty, who is not an evil character at all. Then the fanfic they write prortays Misty as a sharp-tongued harpy who sadistically tortures Ash and Brock. It's a pretty common cliche, and it is quite infamous. For a bad character being more bad, it would be like turning jerkass Georgia into a serial killer. (The opposite of this trope is "Draco in Leather Pants", which is making an evil character good or less evil. An example of that would be portraying the incredibly cruel Ghetsis as a kind, caring individual.)
Are you unintentionally guilty of using "Ron the Death Eater" in any of your fanfics? Or do you try to avoid it? (In an old fanfic I wrote in a notebook, which I have since gotten rid of, I portrayed Norman as a stuck-up jerk. I don't know why, and I think it was the worst thing that I ever wrote.)
What are some examples of Ron the Death Eater you have seen in Pokemon fanfics?
