Yes, that's exactly what I meant.
Also, regarding my Sylvester and Tweety statement, it was purely hypothetical; it's not an actual representation of my thoughts on whether certain characters fill a certain role.
I will say one more thing before I bow out of this convo: very strict protagonist/antagonist labels have led to severe edit wars in the past on completely different wikis. This particular policy was enacted on a wiki where characters are allowed to be defined as antagonists! Part of my reasoning for implementing the "no protag/antag" categories was to prevent those sort of edit wars.
