"Do you have any last words?" stupidness, or the villain 'telling hi/her life story to the "goodie" before they fight.' because the second one just tends to give a lot away.
I like having minor and major villains too, I just don't like when a villain has no purpose other than to get beaten up by the heroes. D:

Yeah. That's kind of flat and 2d.

Remember to think outside the box! ^_^

Oh, Deathspector, I love it when villians join the protagonist. It's much more fun that way. :D
Mine never join. Sure they collaborate and stop trying to kill each other, but they never form up together, mostly because they don't have the time to. :/

I just realised my longest lasting villians are all pretty much one of the main characters except born and thrown into different situations which makes them extremely different yet extremely similar at the same time.

Go me.

Yeah, I guess so. ^_^

Well there's nothing wrong with that. It makes it interesting.

I like my villians to last. Killing off characters isn't too appealing to me barring the "MUSASHIIIII!!!!" type of epic death to bring closure, or if I need to do it to develop a character, but I have characters reserved for coming in and dying off anyway, so meh. :/

Yeah, I get what you mean.
And sometimes you just have to do it because it fits in with the story.

I really hate killing off characters though. Seems like a waste of creating them then.

There is something strangely satisfying for killing off all your characters a la Happy Tree Friends style, but I don't do that in fics unless it's some sort of comedy. :/

It's never a waste to create and kill a character, because it always does something, unless it was random NPC #42.

Happy Tree Friends....Ah, I love that show...clip...uh, whatever they are.

Well I still don't like killing off characters, end of story. Wait, not the end! O_O;;

Those guys are just stupid. Why did they put them in the show? Although it wouldn't make much difference. The show stinks.

They put them in to make it funnier, plus they needed a flunk bad guy trio.

Yeah, kinda. But I was mainly referring to the villains in some stories that I've seen on other sites, who aren't even given a reason for attacking the main characters. At least Jessie, James, and Meowth have somewhat of a reason...

The only thing about vilains for me is that my Villains are rarely another pokemon/person/dragon/wolf/whatever, my antagonist I should say, is usually some belief. Like |Revenge, I'm writing a one-shot about revenge.

After I read this I looked at my fan fic and hit myself on the head...it hurt.
Anyway, after reading I changed my plot slightly and added a history to my villian (who I realise didn't previously have a motive ).
Now I have an evil pokemon to be proud of! Owned by a super strong mis-guided villian. My villian is a threat mainly to the 3 main characters but if not stopped will proberly change the world for better or worse I'm not sure yet.
She was kidnapped at a young age by *SPOILER* and was badly raised.

My secondary villians aren't really villians...In the sence they don't chose to be villians. Does that make sence? Anyway one of the main characters is scared of them due to past experinces but the group quickly discover the truth behind them... XD

I adore writing as villians. At the moment, I'm writing my first Pokemon fanfic, and the villian I had to start off with was a Crawdaunt. He is now dead, and the Pokemon to take over his position is yet to be announced to the fic readers, so I won't spoil it. :3

But the other 'evil' characters I have in the fic are an Ambipom, Donphan, Skarmory and Noctowl. o.o

So, I don't really use obvious choices.
