Antagonists

Main article: Antagonists

The opposite of a protagonist is an antagonist, which is the main enemy of the protagonist and works against the protagonist and his actions. Again, this can be a villain or a hero, though usually a villain. The main antagonists of Breaking Bad are usually introduced very early in the season, usually as the protagonist's friend or acquaintance until a major, personal betrayal (like Krazy 8Tuco Salamanca, Gus Fring, Todd Alquist, Jack Welker, Lydia Rodarte-Quayle, etc) these betrayals can be done by not just main antagonists but antagonists in general. They are usually seen, heard, or mentioned throughout the game, moving against the protagonists' plans or goals, while the protagonist continues his quest for vengeance, and will not appear after their betrayal until they are finally confronted in some big event by the protagonist at the end of the series and will be killed thus completing his problems and wraps up the main storyline. An abnormal antagonist is Emilio Koyama; he makes the least amount of appearances than all the other antagonists in the other episodes (only 2 episode appearances).
