Stories like to thrive on their antagonists, whether through their symbolism, their ruthlessness, or just how good they look in clown make up. Thinking about antagonists, I like to look back on those faithful moments where we get our first meeting with these obsessed opposers because those are usually the moments you remember about them. So, for any of your stories, how have you introduced your antagonists? For me, I have multiple antagonists throughout the story, though only a few are major antagonists. I like my introductions for them to embody the major aspects of their character, for my first antagonist he's introduced in a rather goofy, but telling way. Sitting in a large pool, playing with a rubber ducky while casually discussing how he's going to take over an entire nation with his comrades, before ending with him killing a traitor with a drink in hand; introducing his rather jovial and laid back attitude, while showing how threatening he can be. Another is an assassin, who makes his first appearance in the aftermath of a sudden power outage. The room is dark, the MC hears rapid gunfire from the other room, but he's trapped beneath debris and unable to move. Suddenly, the gunfire stops, he hears the screech of metal as some sort of weapon is dragged across the floor; before his eyes the MC witnesses a strange figure enter the room at a slow pace, passing by the MC in a scene of tension and dread. My major villain is only properly introduced after a long build up of mentions, he was talked about offhandedly throughout the story, the MC travels through an entire twisted country apparently caused by the villain. And finally, after a hole rips in reality, he comes face to face with the villain; who quickly kills off another main character with an endless army at his back. How have you introduced yours?
