5 Teen and Child Characters Who Are Pure Evil

5 Teen and Child Characters Who Are Pure Evil

Evil knows no age

We, as a society, have always had a fascination with evil people. This fascination extends to film and TV, as some of the most notable characters of all time are considered evil. When it comes to evil characters, there is a particular kind that has peeked my interest:

Evil teen and child characters

We have seen evil adults in both fiction and reality countless times, making them a dime-a-dozen. However, it is not often we find ourselves calling teens and kids (real or fiction) evil. Any time we see younger people do things we disapprove of, we normally dismiss it as the kid/teen not knowing better. Thus, when a younger person does something objectively evil, it is quite horrifying. If these people are doing evil things at such a young age, imagine what they could do if/when they grow up. That is why we are going to look at five of the most evil kid and teen characters in all of movies and TV:

5. Bryce Walker (13 Reasons Why)

Yeah, you know this list is gonna be a dozy when this guy is only number 5. Bryce Walker may look like your typical high school bully, but he is far worse. Over the course of the controversial Netflix hit series' first season, Bryce is revealed to be more and more of a monster. The audience eventually discovers that Bryce has raped at least two of his classmates, one of them being series main character Hannah Baker (in the moment that inspired the infamous tapes). The act of rape is bad enough, but when that event is so traumatic that it leads to the victim committing suicide, you know the perpetrator is a first class scumbag. What makes this worse is Bryce's disgusting justification for his actions. For you see, in Bryce's eyes, every girl in school is just "begging" him to f*#% them.

Let's hope his treatment in Season 2 is more Larry Nassar than Brock Turner.

4. Anthony Fremont (The Twilight Zone)

What's that? Putting a little boy from the 60's ahead of a rapist on a list like this is blasphemous?

That's where you're wrong, kiddo.

Anthony Fremont from the classic Twilight Zone episode "Its a Good Life" is not your ordinary little boy. Anthony was born with special powers that practically make him a god. What does little Anthony do with his god-like powers? He kills dogs, isolates his entire town from the rest world (or gets rid of the rest of world, its kinda open to interpretation), and forces his parents and peers to cater to his every whim with the threat of potential death. You better think happy thoughts around Anthony, or he'll send you to the cornfield.

3. Zack Morris (Saved By The Bell)

I know what you're thinking: How could Zack Morris, the main character from a show as silly and stupid as Saved By The Bell be the least bit evil?

The answer to that: Have you seen and paid attention to an episode of Saved By The Bell?

If you have, you would know that Zack Morris is a full blown sociopath. Zack's antics constantly see him putting his "friends" in emotional, mental, and even physical harm's way for his own selfish desires. Fortunately for Zack, and unfortunately for decent society, he lives in area where everyone is way too forgiving and the authority figures are complete pushovers. Add numerous instances of racism and misogyny, and you have a character who has no business being the hero of a kids show.

Zack Morris is trash.

2. Alex DeLarge (A Clockwork Orange)

One common trait that all these characters have is that they enjoy the pain they bring upon others. Alex DeLarge doesn't just enjoy hurting others, he really, really, really, really enjoys hurting others. To Alex, nothing beats the thrill of breaking the law and causing destruction. What makes Alex even more horrifying is that he is shockingly well spoken, and has a liking for fine art and classical music. The fact that someone so young can come across as both intelligent and barbaric is incredibly unsettling.

1. Eric Cartman (South Park)

Who else could it be? For over 20 years, Eric Cartman has cemented himself as arguably the most evil character, kid or adult, of all time. Even the most evil acts committed by the other characters on this list are mere child's play compared to what Cartman has done:

Alex raped an elderly woman while humming "Singin' in the Rain"? Cartman used stem cells to recreate a pizza restaurant.

Zack Morris lied about Slater dying from a rare disease so he could have Kelly all to himself? Cartman teamed up with Cthulhu because his friends kicked him out of their superhero club.

Anthony Fremont turned a man into a Jack-in-the-box in front of his wife? Cartman gave Kyle HIV just to spite him.

Bryce Walker raped the main character of his series, who killed herself shortly afterwards? CARTMAN FED A KID A CHILI MADE OF HIS PARENTS AS A FORM OF REVENGE!!!

If you were smart, you would respect Cartman's authoritah.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
