RPG Emo-Off

From sighing to suicide – which JRPG character out-emos them all?


Games: Kingdom Hearts %26 Tales of Vesperia

Yes, villains can be emo too, usually driven to cloak-wearing lunacy by the very thing that made them evil. But which white-haired, effeminate megalomaniac is the most pitiable?

*Note: We’re going with “Ansem†because it would take a freaking Power Point presentation to explain why he’s not really Ansem. And by the time he drops the act in Kingdom Hearts II, he stops being emo and starts being just plain crazy.

The Winner: Ansem - he doesn’t sell out to the good guys’ namby-pamby feel-good assertions in the last fifteen minutes of the game.

The Winner: Shuyin – because Falsetto gets over it.
