The differences between Darkiplier and Antisepticeye
Obviously we see Anti and Dark as two similar beings because they’re both the evil counterparts or the demons of two great guys who are best friends. Though I think that they’re also very different for many different reasons. Let’s break it down a little and spot the differences, shall we?
Let’s start with Anti.
Antisepticeye, otherwise known as Jack’s evil counterpart or demon, has made many appearances already - even recently. His look can be interpreted however you want, but he has been portrayed a certain way on the channel for some time now. He seems to look exactly how Jack does whenever he appears. But during one longer appearance, he was seen with all black clothing (a black shirt and ripped jeans) and some ear gauges (you can see this in Jack’s ‘Say Goodbye’ video). You could assume that this is Anti’s regular style. We’ve also seen him with black eyes (also in the ‘Say Goodbye’ video) which could possibly mean that he’s a demon.
Anti’s appearances have been brief for the most part. He appears in the form of glitches in Jack’s face cam (you can see a lot of this in Jack’s ‘Five Nights At Freddy’s - Sister Location’ videos) and only stays for a few seconds, though his appearances grew gradually more frequent as the end of October got closer. The only video in which he’s made a longer and much stronger appearance is in Jack’s ‘Say Goodbye’ video.
A quick example.
Anti’s voice is also far from normal, as far as we know. It’s very distorted and sounds like there are multiple people speaking at the same time, all in different pitches. This kind of matches his glitchy appearances.
Another thing about him is that he’s very violent. In multiple appearances, Anti has been seen using his fingers as guns and holding them to his head, strangling himself, pulling at his hair or face or mouth, or with blood somewhere on his face. In the ‘Say Goodbye’ video, he even goes as far as making Jack slit his own throat. He’s displayed as a crazy character, even borderline psychotic.
Picture it this way: if Anti was given the opportunity to torture someone, he wouldn’t hesitate. He would use all the pretty little toys he had and make it as enjoyable as possible - for him. He is merciless, violent and crazy and this could be due to Jack’s excessive amount of energy being manifested into something evil. His idea of fun is extremely dangerous, bloody and painful.
So, Anti is practically a psychopath.
Now, onto Dark.
Darkiplier, otherwise known as Mark’s evil counterpart or demon, hasn’t made nearly as many appearances as Anti. There were theories about him in Mark’s earlier videos ‘Don’t Blink’ and ‘Dont Move’, but he’s been nothing more than a theory since then. People came up with their own ideas and conclusions while Anti was around. But he has finally made an appearance in one of the paths you take when you go to Mark’s video, ‘A Date With Markiplier’ (to get to him you have to click ‘Pay’ and then click ‘Horror’. If you want to follow through then you have to click on ‘Freedom’ and finally, kill the guy on ‘Left’.)
So far, his attire is different from Anti’s. Of course, he was wearing the suit that Mark was wearing during the date, but it oddly seemed to suit him (pun intended). Already off the bat, this leads us to think that Dark may prefer cleaner or more professional attire as opposed to black t-shirts and ripped jeans. Another thing is that he seems to like wearing black eyeliner, unless that’s some sort of natural dark circle around his eyes. Either way, creep factor.
Dark’s appearances haven’t been as glitchy as Anti’s. There are a few moments where he’s seemed to glitch out slightly, but for the most part he’s more ‘stable’. Although, there does seem to be some sort of layering effect in his appearances or some sort of 3D filter - like there are duplicates of him. His stance is also very proper, with his hands gingerly held behind his back as he talks. That, and his appearances have been longer than Anti’s. He sticks around to even converse with the viewer, whereas Anti will only stick around for a few seconds in the face cam, just long enough for someone to notice him.
An example for Darky.
Dark’s voice is a lot deeper than Anti’s, kind of like Mark’s is deeper than Jack’s. Though, it’s almost abnormally deep for someone with Mark’s face. It’s also very echoey, as though he was appearing in a vision or a dream.
Now this is where the major difference comes out.
Unlike Anti, Dark looks very calm and reserved. He speaks slowly, carefully and clearly - as though he’s having a conversation with a colleague at work. He doesn’t seem violent in any sort of way and doesn’t imply that he wants to cause harm to anyone. It’s just that his entire demeanor and way of speaking is very … Dark. I guess he lives up to his name. Rather than being crazy and excitable like Anti, he’s just cold and intimidating.
Picture it this way: if Dark also had the opportunity to torture someone, he wouldn’t go about it the same way. He would most likely use his words to slowly drive the person mad, to frighten them out of their skin. His definition of fun wouldn’t be to hear the person’s screams or see a gory scene - no, his fun is all in the scares. Sure, eventually he gets around to the torture, but he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who likes to make a mess, you know?
So, Dark is a cold, merciless killer.
Anti and Dark are very similar but also very different, which makes them that much more interesting to observe and analyze. The two of them working together would be the perfect recipe for a vengeful murder. Of course, they’re super fun to watch from afar.
Robbie Rivet and E.sportacus I had so much fun designing these TWO!
For E.sports i wanted him to have a muted pallet with gold accents. He wears spikes and lacrosse styled cleets. He’s still just a short as Normal sports but he makes up for it with his attitude and athleticism. He like sports has a crystal but he wears it around his neck and it’s red from corruption. IT only beeps when robbie is around to end his fun. i added the scar and goatee cause thats how all evil counterparts work (i think)
Robbie gets a brighter pallet with lavender and pinks! i kept his cuffs and make-up. his shoes have Velcro cause tying shoes is a waste of energy and time. I tried to have his outfit be a mesh of normal robbies + a mechanics jumpsuit. he’s as tired and done with E.sports and his normal counterpart is with his elf. He’s always cracking his back. (gross)
So, how come you and a lot of other people seem to dislike Beast?
I can’t really speak for other people, but my feelings of distaste towards Beast are pretty recent. A lot of it comes from feeling like he ditches the X-Men whenever the going gets rough. The Phoenix comes a-knocking during AvX or the Terrigen Mists start circling in and he runs off to the Avengers or the Inhumans. (I think he ended up going back to the X-Men at some point during AvX, though my memories of the event as a whole are somewhat blurry.)
His weird thing with Cyclops is also a bit of a sticking point. I get that he’s mad about Professor X eating it, like that ever sticks, but it’s not like he wasn’t trying to do some morally questionable shit in order to bring back mutantkind. He tried to get help from all kinds of big bads and even teamed up with his evil AoA counterpart, who ended up mutilating one of the Guthrie kids when he was left alone with them. (Seriously, why would you bring a super evil version of yourself to a house full of defenseless kids and then leave him alone with them?) He’s mad at Cyclops for starting a murder team, but cool with Wolverine keeping it going? (And then he joined the Illuminati, but that’s a whole other kettle of fish.)
And then there’s the thing with bringing the teenage O5 into the present to…teach Scott a lesson? I don’t really get what his reasoning was there, but some later stuff made it seem less than honorable.
Really, Hank? You, uh, don’t remember how your first meeting with her went?
Of course, this is all more or less a moot point. Characterization varies wildly over time and depending on the writer. I’m not a big fan of the character right now, but I do like some previous incarnations of the guy and I’m sure that over time things will shift and settle for him.
so over fall break i introduced my ten year old brother to RWBY and we watched almost all three whole seasons together and of course he was asking about my favorite characters and stuff when we first started and i was explaining that i personally love Roman and Neo more than anything
this is going to be a long one, so buckle in my good friends
Alison lives in an eldritch version of Wonderland. The inhabitants call her Alice, but that's the name of her childish twin sister who she despises above all else. The inhabitants are all mirrors of their fairy tail counterparts, but instead of fun and joy, more often than not they partake in games of violence and trickery. Not that Alison minds, she feels right at home with the evil counterparts, especially since no one seems to be able to die while in Twisted Wonderland.
Maybe he doesn’t want to act out drowning his character’s wife with his not-exactly-wife-because-they-were-never-married-but-now-an-ex Amanda
Sherlock gets to kill another third of those triplets, just as they deserve for hurting both Sherlock and John, Gabrielle Ashdown, which would be a nod to TPLoSH in how Gabrielle aka Ilse aka Mrs. Ashdown aka the villain German spy is both defeated by Holmes and is eventually executed
And Mycroft gets to kill the 3rd triplet sibling who has blackmailed him into selling his brother to Jiminy Creeper, Mary Sherrinford aka The Other One
“My husband is 3 people” = TSo3
“My wife is 3 people” = T6T, TLD, TFP
We still haven’t seen in T6T ginger “Mary”, if Amanda Abbington’s Instagram is to be believed
We also haven’t seen “Mary” in the Setlock Mint and Mustard restaurant
T6T is Sherlock detail-rich alibi for John killing Mary
„I don’t get creative with my powers”….Is….Is Bendis becoming self-aware he is overusing Venom Blast?
Spider-Man #13 is…actually really fun. The emotional shock of Miles being confronted with Scorpion, an evil alternate counterpart of his dad is very convincing - Miles is an emotional wreck. It’s actually rare to see alternate Universes used in a such way. The later part with Gwen calming him down is icing on the cake. And of course, we get a great humorous moment with dimensional jumping to get away from the cops, only for….
Damn it Rachel I'm a murderer not a doctor! I mean I am a doctor my other side is a doctor he has a doctorate but I'm not the same person you can't help people when you're an evil counterpart you just sit there and you laugh maniacally!
I’m back from holidays and I have shit for you!
The meeting between Saitama and his evil counterpart is more idiotic than I expected…
Genos is facing the power of spandex. Beware men in spandex, guys, always!
I'm laughing so hard because Angelus is the name of an extremely brutal, sadistic and truly evil vampire from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff Angel (and in fact is the evil counterpart to the main character of the spinoff, Angel) and now I can't stop wondering if Halsey has been bingewatching Buffy and Angel
lmao imagine she’s just trolling us all and has actually spent the last two years writing a Buffy/Angel themed album
Spanning no less than 2,129 pages, Normal World, Evil World is King’s most prodigious work to date, and required an entire week’s worth of evenings in the ol’ book nook, to say nothing of the liters of tea, for this Kingophile to complete.
Normal World, Evil World is set in the mysterious, dare I say haunting, backwoods of rural Maine, and concerns the trials and tribulations of Eloise Trowel, a schizophrenic teenaged girl who must overcome past traumas and master her latent telepsychic abilities before her hometown of Lumbermine is replaced by its evil counterpart. Trapped against her wishes in the Anthony P. Ruralmaine Psychiatric Asylum for Girls of Troublesome Disposition, the young Ms. Trowel discovers that she has the power to enter an unseen realm of darkness (bone-chillingly christened “Voidey Space” by Eloise) and cross through it to a parallel reality where everything and everyone is evil.
Escape from the Ruralmaine Asylum turns out to be only the beginning of an arduous odyssey spanning two worlds, three years, and, I reiterate, 2,129 pages of King’s sumptuous prose. It is a journey of terror and revelation the devout reader will find as difficult to dislodge from their fear cortex as it was for Eloise Trowel to undertake in the first place. I, for one, have not slept soundly even once since I first picked Normal World, Evil World up, and shiver involuntarily whenever I harken back to Evil Eloise’s monologue in the scene immediately after the one where she has sex with Normal Eloise, particularly the closing snippet: “There are dark things in the Voidey Space. Dark things indeed.” Dark things indeed indeed, make no mistake about it. Of particular note is King’s masterfully sinister use of David Bowie lyrics. Who would have guessed that the words to “Lady Stardust,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Starman,” or even “Star” could send shivers down one’s spine? Only before reading about King’s Bowie-obsessed serial killer Mister Girlstrangler could the answer have ever been “Surely not this Kingophile!”
I consider myself to have been fundamentally enriched from having read Normal World, Evil World, and have been recommending it to everyone I speak to, although I anticipate discussing it with my therapist at greatest length and frequency. Take care, fellow Kingophiles! This one sticks with you. I am of the opinion that King has truly outdone himself this time.
In the end, I would have to say that my only complaints about Normal World, Evil World are that I will never again be able to read it for the first time, and that at one point it fell onto my cat’s leg and she had to be hospitalized.
Au idea: You know how Caboose found that door to Vic? What if on his way back he accidentally open another door to an alternate universe where all the rvb character’s personalities are opposite. So in this case Caboose would find his evil counterpart and so on.
