    hello humans (and other).

    I have returned for the twenty-second poll of the series. The system will be the same as always: you may nominate up to two candidates in this thread, while having one vote in the poll I start next Saturday.

    And another one who won a poll. Finally.
    What is your favourite antagonist who planned out the whole plot?

    The kind of antagonist who doesn't just pull the strings, but planned for every bat accidentally getting tangled in them. Regardless of whether it actually happened or not. The Lelouch kind of character, just more antagonist. Or someone you've never heard of, but when looking back at it the plot suddenly makes sense. Or the ally you wouldn't ever expect to be the antagonist. You know how this goes.

    I'd actually nominate something here, but I shall once more refrain - there are spoilers I wouldn't want to wish on my worst enemies. You go ahead though.


    With this, let it begin.

    Greetings,
    Illyon

    Gundam 00 and Fate/Zero

    I won't say who the antagonist is though.

    as someone who has watched F/Z and actually read F/SN, I'd disagree with Anon, but considering how he refused to state the name I'll just assume he has things in mind. And two poll options would be rather disappointing, considering how there are quite a few nice series of that kind out there.

    Hmm in that case can you switch F/Z with Zetsuen no Tempest.

    Also I was thinking of
    Angra Mainyu
    from F/Z

    I thought so. While technically not false as an antagonist, it is misleading when you don't know about the background.
    Also, Angra Mainyu was implanted in a previous war. I doubt he (... it?) planned everything, not fitting well into the archetype.

    Uhhh...the thread pretty much died, because the user that used to do this series left the community. Sorry for being a party pooper
