parasites are "evil" by design, it is an evil entity but that does NOT mean it's a CM..
Valeyard is more of a CM than it is and I'll tell you why :
characters like Valeyard have the capability to be morally "good" but choose to be "evil" and some of the WORST Who villains are human (or close).. because Who aliens tend to be "Made of Evil" or generic "Monsters".
Even Daleks, the most evil characters in the show, are exempt from CM status due to the fact they are A) an entire race and B) can not understand good.
Akhaten is not a CM because it is unable to be "good", it is a giant negativity vampire.. Doctor even says so himself.
I know my Who lore, so don't try that old line.. I pretty much love the show (and its variety of monsters).
again.. VERY few Who aliens can be CMs.. Akhaten is definitely not one of them.
You're delibrately veering away from the mitigating qualities, Gear. You're measuring it by a scale of evil and not what factors prevent it from being a monster. In terms of actions, sure, it's heinous enough, but not by character.
humans in Who are never portrayed as evil? oh sweet.. are you trolling? remember the Star Whale? "no one HUMAN has anything to say to me today!".
That's just one example of humans in Who that go rogue.. some of the nastier things done in Who is due to rogue humans.
As for Daleks.. I didn't "claim" anything.. they are one of the most evil races in Who.. every incarnation despises them (and for good reason) : Daleks embody xenophobia at its worst and Davros is one of Whoverse's most demented monsters.
Compared to Davros beings like Akhaten don't mean anything.
because all the beings LostGod listed (as well as Valeyard to a lesser extent) CHOOSE to do unspeakable atrocities.. Akhaten is a God of Evil.. it has NO OTHER PURPOSE..
Akhaten is also a parasite and I don't care if you claim otherwise a parasite is by necessity an "evil" entity but it can NEVER be a CM.. because parasites, while destructive and malignant, REQUIRE such "evil" to survive.
Davros and all the humans LostGod mentioned do not require "evil" to survive, they just commit it because they feel it furthers their own selfish goals.. that's what a CM is.
whatever.. I might give you Davros (obviously) but you saying Valeyard is more evil than Akhaten is some serious BS considering Valeyard isn't even a canon character.. I resent when supposed "Who fans" use false canon to justify things.
To cap, Ahkaten does not have control of its actions. It lacks moral capacity. It doesn't matter how evil it is, Ahkaten fails to count because of mitigating factors, and Complete Monsters cannot have any strikes against their character. That defeats the purpose of a Complete Monster.
