    Hi. Can I ask you a question? I have noticed you've deleted the villains category. Why is that? I mean, there are villains in the Looney Tunes franchise.

    I'll give you a list of Looney Tunes villains.

    1. Elmer Fudd

    2. Yosemite Sam

    3. Wile E. Coyote

    4. Marvin the Martian 

    5. Sylvester 

    6. Taz

    7. Mr. Swackhammer

    8. The Nerdlucks/Monstars

    9. Mr. Chairman

    10. The Martian Bombs from Looney Tunes Dash

    11. Tasmanian She-Devil (in Looney Tunes Dash)

      If you had looked around on our policy pages a bit more, specifically the Categories page, you'd find the answer...

      Looney Tunes isn't a series with deep lore, and character roles change from cartoon to cartoon. Continuity does not exist, except in certain series, and even then it's confined to that series and that series only. Even then, some characters may have gray morality and cannot be defined as strictly a hero or a villain. To provide an example of a character who is a hero and a villain, Bugs Bunny has been portrayed in heroic roles and villainous ones ("Buckaroo Bugs"). If a character is portrayed as a villain, then write in the article how and why they are a villain. Saying that a character is a "hero" or a "villain" says nothing about who they are.

      Also, read this thread where the decision was made. I particularly like TheBigGnome's final comment on the matter:

      The purpose of categories is to provide some sort of distinction between things, and perhaps make it easier to find them. Since most characters could fit into both the protagonist and antagonist categories, those categories are completely useless. I think the same is true of Heroes.

      A case might be made to keep Villains, but change the definition to characters that strictly appeared as villains (Von Vultur, Hitler, etc.). Even then, was Hitler a villain in Wackyland?

      I hope this has answered your question.

    • Ok. But there are villains in the franchise, but they are not completely evil, however, Mr. Swackhammer from Space Jam and Mr. Chairman from Looney Tunes: Back in Action are completely evil. 

      As you know, the villains in Looney Tunes can be both good and bad, however Mr. Swackhammer and Mr. Chairman were always evil and they were never good.

      Hi, sorry to barge in, but it would be pretty confusing to readers if just the characters that were only villains were listed in that category.

      Lovable Cats and Tyler Crusher, I'm sorry, but I'm not exactly sure how I should respond to either of your messages.

      I’m a couple days late, but I was basically agreeing with what you were saying.
