Who do you consider to be The Main Character



  • End_of_SlayerEnd_of_Slayer Member Posts: 66

    I do agree that Kate could possibly defeat the Entity, but the devs confirmed that it is extremely patient. Which would mean eventually, Kate would run out of hope. The Entity is a malevolent being which our minds cannot comprehend, but if we can grasp onto anything from it, then it loses a bit of its power. It’s like knowing someone’s name, if you know their name, you have some power because our names are only something specific people should know.

    If you were to... let’s say find the name of the Entity, we could be a step closer to figuring out this whole mystery. In this world, knowing the name of the Entity might actually cause it to break a little, maybe even cause a little rift in the realm. Because knowing something 100% true about the Entity would actually surprise the creature, allowing the survivors to use the chance to possibly escape. But hey, it’s just a theory, that’s the fun part about this.

    I'd say Kate has the best chance of irritating the Entity. But when it's between a country singer who's great at lifting spirits, and a literal malevolent dimension of intelligent cruelty, I think positivity's just gonna be one small ingredient to beating it.

    That's like saying a large enough piece of bacon could beat you up.

  • Detective_JonathanDetective_Jonathan Member Posts: 1,165

    @Orion Well I sure don’t see that brain of yours putting anything useful in.

    @BlackMercury @End_of_Slayer

    This was taken from the DBD Tv tropes site, which tells a whole lot about the characters and what tv trope they fit. This goes along with the fact that she could be the key to defeating her (The Entity) But would require some kind of comprehension of the elderitch being.

  • OrionOrion Member Posts: 11,721

    TV Tropes is a wiki that compiles opinions. It's irrelevant in determining actual lore.

    As for what I said previously, let me make it perfectly simple:

    • Hope is food for the Entity. Saying that Kate is so hopeful that she's a threat is like saying that food that is too nutritious for you could kill you.

    I agree with Orion on both accounts. The analogy is silly since strong emotions are nothing else but tasty sustenance for The Entity and Wikis that only rely on opinions rather than facts should be disregarded in discussions.

  • End_of_SlayerEnd_of_Slayer Member Posts: 66

    With the current state of the lore right now, it’s impossible to tell if the Entity can actually be defeated. But seeing as how Vigo found out the building blocks of the Entity being the form of Auric cells, there is a way to figure out some things. We still need to figure out what the Entity said to the killers for their anniversary weapons. The devs said it’s possible to figure it out, but I don’t think we have done it yet.

    Then you have the Entity talking to the killer when they have Whispers equipped. Survivors can hear the Entity when they are in tier 3 madness. So it’s interesting. The lore has to be one of the best parts of this game, shame that not a lot of people discuss about it.

  • Ember_HunterEmber_Hunter Member Posts: 1,693

    I only recently noticed the Entity's voice in tier 3 of madness. Since the Entity drives killers insane to kill for him/her, then madness seems to be the one factor to be able to connect to the Entity.

    Not a wiki. And that’s a lot coming from someone who made the claim that The entity was of possible female gender. On a wiki that he created @DocOctober

    on top of that @End_of_Slayer people haven’t they’re too lazy, or just dont read.

  • Detective_JonathanDetective_Jonathan Member Posts: 1,165

    @Orion until I see you providing something useful. Then I’ll take what you say into consideration. It’s better to sit and think that it’s possible then to not sit and think at all and rely on “oh she’s just food”

  • End_of_SlayerEnd_of_Slayer Member Posts: 66

    If you think about it, everyone in the Entity’s realm is basically food for it to feed off of. The Entity feeds off of strong emotions, which means that both the killers and survivors are pawns in this game. The killers don’t realize that they are being used for something much worse than what they are. Even if they do realize it, they cannot comprehend what it’s trying to do. Thus the hooks in Trapper, pillowcase on Nurse, deadly plague for Plague, Hag being rotten flesh, Doctor in a forever open smile. They were tortured to being killers. They all succumbed to the bloodlust whether they wanted to or not.

    I say meg cause she’ll is the blue is girl in the first trailer they made before she and Claudette’s switched race

  • DocOctoberDocOctober Member Posts: 2,230

    1) I did not create the DbD Wiki, I'm just the top contributor and Head Admin of it.

    2) The devs themselves talked of her as a she, rather than an it and it is also explained why the Entity is most likely female. The Entity being female is not just a hypothesis, it's a theory based on evidence.

  • VolfawottVolfawott Member Posts: 2,186


    Considering The Entity feeds of hope it's quite possible that Kate is benefiting The Entity than harming her.

    Not only is Kate herself a massive banquet that The Entity could feed on for a long time but her constantly giving hope to the other survivors and bolstering their confidence and happiness basically makes more consistent meals for The Entity.

    Less survivors get dried up when it comes to Hope and tossed into the void because Kate keeps giving them a hope boost.

  • BlueFangBlueFang Member Posts: 949

    Jake, Bill or Ash

    They are the ones I like the most

    Simply put: Dwight, Trapper, and the Entity. The characters that are the first on the roster and the Entity(nea) itself.

    However, lore wise it appears that there are more survivors than just the roster we have to play. So it would seem that each one is a main character in their own right. Some having a more generalized role like Kate and others that make more frequent appearances. Dwight, Claudette, Jake, and Meg vs the Trapper in the opening cut-scene. However, with the more recent events such as the Hallowed Blight event and EGC. It appears the entity's power is growing as more trials are being played.

    I love Kate, she's bae, but while she thinks she is helping the Survivors get through it and that they will get out one day she is in turn actually helping to strengthen the Entity. She keeps the other Survivors going but this also keeps the Entity going. Its a loop that will never end because Kate will never give up hope and will never give up on the other Survivors.

    This is assuming, of course, that Kate is doing these things. And from her backstory I think we can assume that she is.

    As for who I think the main character is? I don't know. Some of the Survivors and Killers seem more Lore important than others but none really stick out as main characters. So I guess I'll go with the Entity.

  • Detective_JonathanDetective_Jonathan Member Posts: 1,165

    Oh I’m sorry let me rephrase that “top contributor” so that basically means you came up with all the calculations. Hence, you created it in some way.

    And the devs at first stated her as an it. But that’s none of my business, I didn’t waste my Time being a top contributor. @DocOctober

    @GodDamn_Angela So you think The Entity is a protagonist villain. Interesting.

  • End_of_SlayerEnd_of_Slayer Member Posts: 66

    The Entity is basically the antagonist, yet also a protagonist in the story. The Entity is the main character to a point. Benedict and Vigo are the main survivors that we have so far, and the Entity is the main villain. It’s the protagonist of its story, so in theory, then Benedict and Vigo are antagonists.

  • Detective_JonathanDetective_Jonathan Member Posts: 1,165

    I say protagonist villain because I remember hearing from the Leatherface movie, the more recent one. Texas ranger Hartman is the good guy but he does terrible things to people. Hence the name “protagonist villain” where as Jedidiah or “Leatherface” is the “antagonist hero”

    in the case of DBD where someone thinks the Entity is the main character, they would be considered the protagonist villain.


  • Raven014Raven014 Member Posts: 2,266


    I like how you assume that a lovecraftian nightmare that literally drains hope from people is a female. It's just funny. XD

    I also find funny how this thread devolved into arguing the Entity's gender...

  • End_of_SlayerEnd_of_Slayer Member Posts: 66

    Got it, then yes, the Entity would be a protagonist villain, they are a protagonist yet also the villain of this story. If we truly want the main characters, we have 4, Entity, Benedict, Vigo, and Prisoner. Once the Archives come out, we will have a lot more info on all of these people.

  • Im2ShrewdIm2Shrewd Member Posts: 77

    It’s clearly Ash Williams and anyone who says otherwise is just wrong.

  • End_of_SlayerEnd_of_Slayer Member Posts: 66

    I mean, Ash isn’t the main character, seeing as how he was just added to the realm. Plus, Benedict, Vigo, and the Prisoner are the main characters along with the Entity. Was established a little while ago because these are the characters that are the most beneficial lore wise

  • Chaddad2169Chaddad2169 Member Posts: 748

    Don't mention that woman to me. I HATE Kate.

    But I LOOOOOVE Quentin, Tapp and Bill

  • Chaddad2169Chaddad2169 Member Posts: 748

    You're also going to need power and teamwork, these two other ingredients are mostly used by Quentin, Tapp, Bill and Ash as they're all fighters, you learn in the lore that Quentin fought Freddy in his own dream world and summoned the entity, Tapp has a knack of never giving up, Bill puts the lives of others in front of his and Ash.... well... LoOk Who'S ShITTing IN the TaLl GRAsS

  • yesyes Member Posts: 367
  • Detective_JonathanDetective_Jonathan Member Posts: 1,165

    Bonus points for adding in Tapp, however, it's like the old saying goes "This is bigger than you could even imagine"

    Your reply is utterly despicable and disrespectful. I will not engage in any further discussion with you. Bye.
