Had you not been so selfish, your little girlfriend's death would have been quick and painless, but now that you've really pissed me off, I'm gonna finish her, nice and slow. MJ and I; we're gonna have a HELL of a time!

A Provoker is a villain who has wronged the hero so badly that it makes a more personal rivalry between them. The hero will often act on rage to stop this villain and not just for defensive purposes.

A Provoker is the opposite of a Nemesis, a villain who is provoked by the hero, although they can be both at once if the nemesis provokes the hero out of revenge in some way.
