It happens all the time in movies. The good girl falls for the bad boy. As I mentioned in the last article I wrote about bad guy characters who aren't as bad as we think (The Article), bad guy characters often attract us for similar reason. They are the unknown and they will often do anything and everything they can just to get a point across or to get what they want.
The fact is that people in general can often be victims of miss-understandings and seem to be different from what they really are. In the last article I talked about bad guys who only seem bad because of the whole "Kick The Dog" archetype where they do something that we see as being so terrible that we just know they really are bad, but found that if you took that moment out or explained it from their perspective they ended up not being as bad as we originally thought them to be.
So, for this article I decided it would only be fair to go to the opposite end of the spectrum and discuss the good guys that are not as good as we think. The list includes Noah Calhoun (The Notebook 2004), Tinkerbell (Peter Pan 1953), Snow White (Snow White 1937), Cinderella (Cinderella 1950), Aurora (Sleeping Beauty 1959), and Honorable Mention Professor Severus Snape (Harry Potter Books, Games and Movies).
