For my final research paper in English, I have to use Peter Schaffer's play Amadeus as my main source for an analysis of a villain who usually is a main character. In the case of the play, that is Salieri By using TV tropes, I found out that this type of character is called a Villain Protagonist. Villain Protagonist - Television Tropes & Idioms Also, my teacher said other examples would be Shakespeare's Macbeth which I haven't read yet. I talked to him via phone and asked him if characters like Darth Vader apply. He said yes. So, I want to ask what other characters in media are applied to this term. Does anyone have any good examples?
