Chief among them is acting like an Entitled Bastard. Regardless, both types share defining traits: The Entitled Bastards usually think it's all about them ; they don't feel at all sheepish about asking the people whose lives they've made hell for help, and they see no reason to thank them for it afterwards.
What happens to them depends on just how annoying or harmful they've been, and how nice or naughty the heroes are. If they've just been bad-mouthing a generally Good Samaritan of a herothey'll be saved no matter what. If the hero has a sense of humor, they might leave them in a safe place On the other hand, outright murderous villains will likely die with a look of bewilderment as the Anti-Hero refuses to help and leaves them to their fate Compare the Spoiled Brat and Narcissistwho often displays entitled behavior themselves, as well as Entitled to Have Youwhen a character feels they automatically deserve sex or a relationship from another character.
Usually a source of Dude, Where's My Respect? The vast majority of villains in general show this quality to some degree given that their way in life is getting whatever they fancy without caring about whether or not they have any rightful claim over it, and it's also one of the defining traits of The Sociopath. Not to be confused with literally entitled bastard, who holds a seat in the peerage of a kingdom despite the circumstances of their birth.

During the fight against Frieza in Dragon Ball ZVegeta gets himself critically injured by Krillin as part of a plan to get a power boost by having Dende heal him Saiyans become more powerful upon recovering from near-death experiencesand is genuinely shocked when Dende refuses to do so since Vegeta was just as bad as Frieza and had slaughtered countless Namekians himself. He ends up doing so anyway after Piccolo, Gohan, and Krillin point out that they need Vegeta to stand a chance.
For bonus points, the first thing Vegeta does after getting healed is punch Dende in the stomach for taking so long. As a whole, this is Vegeta's Fatal Flawalong with his pride and wrath, before the final fight with Majin Buu. He believes he should be the strongest because he's the Prince of the Saiyans and born exceptionally gifted among his race, whereas Goku was born at the absolute bottom of the Saiyan pecking order.

After Reed managed to save the day, he was able to trick Doom into insulting the demons who granted him his power boost, causing them to grab him and drag him into hell.

In Amazing FantasyMysterio was once a special effects artist but was fired during the rise of CGI because his effects were just too expensive. Rather than adapt to the times or look for cheaper ways to do his specialty, Mysterio became a supervillain just to get the money he "deserved".
Child of the Storm has this as a feature of many of its villains: Gravemoss thinks he deserves the power to conduct his heinous experiments; HYDRA think they deserve to rule the world based on an unclear metric of being 'better' than everyone else ; the Red Room believe they deserve to regain Russia's 'lost empire' more specifically, Yelena Belova believes that she deserves to be the Black Widow ; Sinister believes that he deserves the god-given right to treat anyone and everyone as a medical experiment; Surtur believes he deserves his power stolen from the Phoenix and has the right to rewrite the universe according to his design because everyone else is wrong, apparently ; and Reynolds a.

At the end of Re:Final Standhe bemoans that he'll never get a Keyblade now and that Xehanort promised him his own. In the early 20th century, Louis Vierne held the most prestigious job possible for a professional church organist: resident organist at the legendary Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. Despite drawing crowds that wanted to hear Vierne's otherworldly organ work, particularly on his own compositions he wrote six symphoniesthe Catholic Church clergy that ran Notre-Dame decided in to discontinue all organ recitals.
They at least let Vierne play for the people one final time, on June 2, Vierne was the Elvis Presley of early 20th-century organists. While Presley struggled with drugs, nutrition, and health problems, Vierne had experienced a string of tragically bad luck. His wife cheated on him, one of his sons died from tuberculosis, and the other died fighting in World War I.
A fall so shattered his leg and ankle that he had to relearn his organ pedaling technique, and the stress of it all made him a three-packs-a-day smoker who also relied on heart pills, tranquilizers, and sleeping pills.
About 3, people amassed for Vierne's last concert at Notre-Dame After playing an original piece, he said to his assistant standing nearby, "I'm going to be ill.
He'd died of a heart attack sitting in his favorite seat. Webster was a star of the suburban Baltimore theater scene. At the Towson Moose Lodge in Novembershe performed a role she'd done more than half a dozen times before — the grandmother-in-law of the titular drunkard in a musical melodrama called The Drunkard. Unfortunately, so did Webster. And here we are, talking about her.
It was a poignant moment to perish. The play's director Richard Byrd told United Press International that the last thing Webster heard was "tremendous applause. Hearing that, she died. Operas are full of sad, dramatic, even tragic moments — that's kind of opera's whole thing. Baritone Leonard Warrenone of the most famous American opera singers of all time, added to opera's inherent darkness, not to mention its lore, by dying on stage.
At about 10 p. He fell to the stage floor of the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City immediately after finishing the aria "Urna fatale del mio destino," which translates appropriately to "fatal urn of my destiny. Cause of death: a heart attack, according to the Washington Post. Marshal, a theatrically trained actor from Australia, put together a solid career in the s and '40s as a character actor and supporting player.
He specialized in playing villains, soldiers, and the not-quite-right-for-her-guy that the main female character is with at the beginning of the movie before leaving Respect Or Death - Cripple Bastards - Live @ Country Star (CDr) to be with her true love.
Marshal stayed true to his theatrical roots, performing in plays throughout his career. In fact, his final role would be on stage. Marshal co-starred in Sextette, a sexy farce written by and starring silver screen sexpot Mae West. The year-old actor was delighting an audience in Chicago up to the moment where he keeled over from a heart attack.
Infamed pianist Simon Barere sat in front of his instrument before a huge audience at Carnegie Hall. How did he get there? Barere was a featured musician performing for the first time with the Philadelphia Orchestra. His playing was masterful, as usual, for the first two minutes and change of the concerto.
That's when audience members noticed Barere's tempo growing inconsistent, which is to say nothing of the sour notes. Barere's missteps subsided when he stopped playing entirely and slumped forward, his head crashing into the keyboard before he rolled off the bench and hit the floor.
A doctor was, in fact, in the house, and he ran up and helped carry Barere backstage. After half an hour of revival attempts, Barere, 54, was pronounced dead, evidently from a stroke. While they recorded a slew of well-received albums on major labels, the Beat Farmers were regarded as one of the best bar bands in the world, performing at whatever intimate venue would take them. They were "honky-tonk anarchists" as Paste described themand a definitive band of the s "cowpunk" scene, combining countrified roots rock with a punk attitude.
Country Dick Montanawho usually sat behind the drum kit, formed the band in after playing with some other bands and running a San Diego record store. Cowboy Dick was an imposing presence in a cowboy hat and Respect Or Death - Cripple Bastards - Live @ Country Star (CDr) duster, and he'd usually take the mic for at least one song per show — often a quirky novelty song about the delights of drinking.
The other band members moved into the next song but stopped when they noticed Montana was silent. Road manager Tom Ames ran onto the stage and helped Montana to the ground. By the time paramedics arrived a few minutes later, year-old Country Dick was dead from what was later ruled to be an acute aneurysm.
Johnny Watson was so skilled at playing his instrument — and in so many different ways — that his nickname was literally "Guitar.

Does this come subconsciously with experience or was it a deliberate move on your part? Yes, I agree with what you say. Variante alla morte is a natural step forward after 20 years of Cripple Bastards, not a deliberate move.
Thanks for the lead-in to my next question. How has having a stable line-up for about eight years now impacted life in Cripple Bastards? This line-up has played hundreds of shows and done a lot of work together, plus we are good friends. It helps a lot in reaching the right formula for creating new songs, having a solid style and a well-trained live approach.
I just translated the lyrics into Italian as they were originally written in English and adapted them to the song. We did the original version here in Italy and it had some production mistakes and sounded weak compared to what we had in mind.
Can you describe it and what you were trying to convey with the images you used? The artwork is a fantastic drawing by Majo Rossi, an Italian artist who works on the [Italian] comic series, Dampyr. It has a long line of children jumping down an escarpment ending in a black sea full of sharp stones.
So, this is the meaning of the drawing. Once you open the poster you get it all. Over the years, what has Cripple Bastards come to mean to you?
