You were the bad guy all along
For example, the hero is searching for a very special treasure. Too bad he doesn't know his way around. He meets a very nice person who offers to help the hero find the treasure. But wait, wasn't the temple supposed to be toward the south?SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: 7 Times You Were The Bad Guy All Along, Sorry

Thanks for connecting! You're almost done. Connect to your existing Cracked account if you have one or create a new Cracked username. Being a movie villain is not easy. Nobody respects your work, everyone loves your sworn enemy, and cheers if he straight up murders your ass. Of course, the villains deserve it, right? Well, actually Hollywood is littered with supposedly evil characters that, when you take a step back and ignore the cackling laughter and yellow teeth, were clearly the ones getting screwed over.
Here are the so called bad guys who got the rawest deals of all:. Rooney was the mean old Dean of Students who spent the entire movie trying to prove that Ferris was skipping school while pretending to be sick. What a mistrustful tight-ass. Why the hell does he care so much if one student takes a day off? Let's get the obvious out of the way: this is his goddamned job. People are always all up the public schools system's digestive tract for not taking a more active interest in their students and that's exactly what Mr.
Rooney was doing. It doesn't matter if, on a personal level, he's a dick or not -- he is literally paid with your tax money to make sure kids aren't doing exactly what Ferris did.
The kid can go to a museum and drive a sports car on the weekend. During the week, he and the other kids are Rooney's responsibility so they can, you know, get an education. And you know what? He was right all along. Ferris was skipping school. Worse yet, he lied to his parents and friends about being sick and pretty much got the whole town involved in the farce.
He lied, he stole, and he caused millions in property damage by destroying Cameron's dad's beautiful car. That's not adorable, that's just being an egocentric cock. It wouldn't have been a satisfying movie ending to see Rooney expose Bueller for his douchebaggery, but it would have been by far the more just outcome.
What happens instead is that Rooney loses his wallet and almost has his nipples ripped off by a Rottweiler. And we're asked to sit back and say, "serves him right for caring about the future of our country! Just like the Jews in Nazi Germany! The Nazi analogy would probably work a lot better if real-life Jews could shoot boiling acid out of their assholes or level entire cities by blinking, which our Jewish friends assure us only Mossad agents can do. The X-Men mutants on the other hand actually can conjure up hurricanes, stop time, and completely alter a person's mind until he really believes that Flavor Flav is a reasonable and intelligent media personality.
It seems perfectly understandable that some folks might want to keep tabs on such individuals. And what happens when he can't? As a human in the X-Men movies you constantly have to be on the lookout not only for the evil mutants who want to kill you , but also for the supposed "good guys" who are often in the process of accidentally killing you.
In X-Men , Cyclops loses his protective goggles in a crowded train station and just starts straight fire-blasting with his Murder Vision uncontrollably, unable to handle his powers or discern between bad guys and random kids who happen to be in the same building.
And he's the good guy! In X2 , every human on the planet almost had their brains melted simultaneously by a mutant.
Obviously there is a thin line between cautious concern and downright mutant-prejudice but cut the civilians of the X-Men universe some slack.
They live in constant fear, not knowing if the guy they just cut off on the freeway can explode their dick with his mind. In one of Disney's finest rip-offs to date, The Lion King hyenas were the mangy lowlifes who tried to kill Simba, assisted in the assassination of Mufasa and utterly destroyed the Pride Lands after helping Scar take over as king.
Jesus, what is those assholes' problem? They want something to eat. That's their problem, and it's only a problem because Mufasa banished them from the Pride Land and forced them to live in an elephant graveyard , which is no place to raise a child, hyena or otherwise.
We never know why they were banished to the Pride Slums, leaving us to assume Mufasa's unedited explaination of the Circle of Life went something like this:. Mufasa: Everything you see exists together, in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance, and respect all the creatures-- from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.
Mufasa: Yes, Simba, but let me explain. When we die, our bodies become grass. And the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life. That's the only way to explain how Scar got an entire army of these animals behind him with such dissident slogans as "Stick with me, and you will never go hungry again!
The hyenas were pissed because the oppressive lion regime had reduced them to second-class citizens, hoarding all the pie for themselves. No wonder they followed Mufasa's brother. What Scar offered the hyenas was a revolution of the common man. He was more or less their four-legged Lenin. In Roland Emmerich's latest "planetary kablooey movie with a date in the title", , Carl Anheuser is the asshole chief of staff-turned-president who in the film's climax closes the doors to the ships carrying the last surviving humans on Earth, allowing thousands outside to drown Anheuser didn't simply wake up one day and think to himself "Today, I shall be a massive dickcheese for no good reason.
It was either the few thousand people outside, or the few hundred thousand inside, and someone had to make that call. Luckily, Anheuser wasn't born with a burnt sack of crap where his brain should be. We know it sucked for those who didn't get onboard, but the whole planet was about to go tits up and Carl had to make sure that the last human survivors on Earth He didn't even let his own mother on the ships because she was like a million and, frankly, when you're picking survivors, you have to think long term, which means one thing: Repopulation.
By bringing his mother onto the ark, Anheuser would be implicitly stating "Yes, I want as many people as possible to have sex with my mom so we can repopulate the world. Everyone does their part, come on. You're in a tough spot if "Wicked" is right there in your name, but WWW isn't exactly the most image conscious celebrity in Oz, either: She kidnapped Dorothy, threatened to drown her dog and tried to set The Scarecrow on fire, all to get her hands on the girl's ruby slippers.
Foot fetish or not, that was some stone-cold villainy. Remember that the Witch wasn't after Dorothy, and she wasn't trying to rule the world. All she ever wanted was those slippers. Say, how did Dorothy acquire those magical shoes in the first place? Why, by taking them off the blood-drenched feet of the Wicked Witch of the East. Who she just murdered. Who also happened to be the Wicked Witch of the West's sister.
The Witch sisters are hanging around Oz, minding their own business when some random teenager crushes a woman to death with a house , killing her instantly in an act of domiciliary manslaughter. Next, the teenager waltzes out and corpse-loots the victim's shoes some sort of creepy kill-trophy, no doubt which under every inheritance law in the universe damn well belong to the deceased's surviving family. From where we stand, the Wicked Witch of the West had every right in the world to bludgeon Dorothy to death with a sock full of toxic batteries, but what did she do?
Absolutely nothing. She just wanted her shoes back, and every action that she took was motivated by that want. Then, of course, Dorothy raises an army in the form of a giant, talking lion, a man made of metal and an unkillable scarecrow, steals the Witch's broomstick and kills the Witch, staging a nice little Witch sister reunion in the afterlife.
Break into Alcatraz, take lots of hostages, 2. Eat a puppy probably. There certainly is a major villain in The Rock but it's not General Hummel. Ironically, it's the U. Hummel was only doing this in the first place because the government used him and his troops for illegal clandestine missions all over the world.
But Uncle Sam wouldn't spare a counterfeit wooden nickel for the families of soldiers who died during those missions. For some reason Hummel had a problem with that. And he tried getting money and attention the legitimate ways.
Hummel exhausted every official channel, trying to get the country to cough up some cash, before finally giving up and moving from strongly worded letters to the next logical thing: chemical warfare terrorism.
Besides, he never wanted the mill to be paid from the country's homeless kitten shelter budget or anything. Hummel specifically asks for the money to come from the Red Sea Trading Company In the end, Hummel never hurt one innocent person and revealed that the nerve agent missiles he had prepared were all a bluff, making his whole operation something of a large scale charity performance, only with guns and WMDs instead of smugness. Elaborate and dangerous, sure, but his punishment, that Nicolas Cage goes down as the hero of the movie he died in , should count as a war crime.
In the theological-nightmare movie "Short Circuit" a military robot is granted a soul after being struck by a lightning bolt. Gaining sentience and running away, he is constantly pursued by the ruthless security-chief of the company that built him, Captain Skroeder-a man who will stop at nothing to destroy the so called "malfunctioning" machine. Here's a riddle for you. What do you call a piece of electronics which stopped working the way it was supposed to?
We'll give you a hint: it starts with an "m" and Eminem cuold make it rhyme with "mouth-puncturing. If Skroeder could stop Johnny 5 and fix the broken, highly dangerous robot from wandering around a world full of life, the value of which he didn't understand, Skroeder would be a god damned hero.
It's still unclear to us how, in a movie full of scientists and people not currently in mental institutions, it took Skroeder, a security officer, to disbelieve that souls can travel through lightning strikes. The funny thing is he sort of had a point there, because during the first days of Johnny's so called "sentience", he didn't even understand the concept of life and death.
Do you understand the implications of that? A machine that can kill but doesn't know what killing means? We should have been rooting for someone to drop a bomb on this military murder-bot before it "disassembled" a bunch of toddlers.

6 Bad Guys Who Were Right All Along
Most everyone loves a happy ending where the hero conquers evil, saves the world, and things are made right again. But just like in life, that doesn't always happen in video games. Sometimes the villain is the one who ends up winning despite all of the best efforts of your player character. And then there are the times when you, yourself, end up being the villain all along. Often the bad guys win in the end of a game because you were unable to stop them. Other times you may have accidentally helped them in some way. Or it's possible that you just generally made some bad decisions. But when they win, it's never an easy pill to swallow. And while tropes are made to be broken, it just doesn't quite sit well when the antagonist you've been fighting against the whole time ends up with the high ground. Especially when that high ground includes the assured destruction of the world.
