  • "He's adopted." -Thor

    Even his brother had trouble justifying Loki. Loki is a deceiving trickster that orchestrated the would-be assassination of Odin, a tactical plan, premeditated to deliver petty vengeance towards favoritism. Always having ulterior motives, and proudly expressing his wicked ideology in Germany when Captain America, no less, has to interrupt him. Unleashing a malevolent alien army on unsuspecting humans, instantly rocking their worldview without warning...Just to rule over a scorched earth.

  • Anyone wishing to gain power for himself can't be good

    His intentions are evil from the get go he wants to enslave the human race, also he wishes to kill anyone in his way whether they are innocent or not, he is a villain for a reason, he may have spouts of good dashed in but is a true evil villain

  • Loki is evil

    Loki is his own worst enemy. His adopted family loved him but he could never believe it. He was a prince of Asgard but it wasn't enough because his not crownprince. He is power-hungry, jealous , vindictive and blames everyone else for what happened. In the first film he's sympathetic after he finds out he's a jotun and wants to prove himself to his family. But it's no excuse for treason and attempted genocide. After his first defeat he only gets worse and does everything he can to seize power both on Earth and then on Asgard no matter how many people must die and without any remorse. If that's not evil what is?

  • Anyone who goes to the lengths he does for power is evil.

    In Thor, he was a somewhat sympathetic character. He was having an identity crisis and resented Thor for always getting the attention. You could also make the argument that he represents internalized racism. However, nowhere was it shown that he was ever mistreated by his family in Asgard. Odin did not discriminate against him in his choice of heir. In most monarchies, the eldest son is automatically the heir, so even if Loki were actually Odin's son he still wouldn't be the heir. Basically, he was throwing a temper tantrum for the majority of the movie. Having an identity crisis does not justify sending a destructive robot to kill your brother and destroy a random city in New Mexico and attempt to commit genocide in Jotunheim. Neither does it justify trying to enslave Earth. Thor repeatedly tried to reason with him and even apologized to him. Does Loki listen? No. If he weren't played by such a charming actor, he wouldn't have nearly as many fans. Regardless of how messed up he is, doing what he did is evil.

  • Loki is called the god of mischief for a reason

    Look, even from watching the movies we know that whatever Loki does only brings about chaos not only to Earth, but also to the other worlds. Although haters say that Loki had helped Thor, obviously he helped him for his own benefit. After Thor left him, Loki went back to Midgard and probably killed his own step father ( I don't remember what his name is) , who lovingly raised Loki since he was a child. I'm not making an assumption that Loki murdered his step father, but of course his step father wouldn't give his sceptre to the god of mischief.

  • Loki is not truly evil

    He feels that he is alone in the world, and wants to prove himself to his adopted father. He does what he does to feel accepted. He also feels jealous of his brother. Jealousy is not true evil, he wants to stand out from his brother and prove that he is a great person

  • Power by any means necessary

    He strives to power by any means necessary. He using trickery or brute force to his advantage. He seeds destruction, wherever he goes. On the other hand, all his good deeds are just another way for him to gain the power.
    Another question would be what he actually intends to do with this power.

  • It’s not really his fault, after all, he felt betrayed.

    Loki was adopted but he didn’t know until much later. Before that, he actually had some hope that he would be king. However, Odin dashes his hopes as well as his confidence when he said that Loki was adopted and could not be king. He even said that Loki’s birth right was to die!!! Loki felt betrayed as he wanted to be king, so taking over countries on earth was just his way of trying to rule somewhere. He saved Thor in “the dark world”...He really isn’t that evil, is he? He just wants to be the savior and king of Asgard.

  • Loki is not completely evil, or at least not much eviler than Thor

    (in the first Thor movie). One way of looking at it is that Loki near the end of the film is Thor at the beginning. At the beginning Thor wants to destroy all the frost giants, so he goes to Jotunhiem and attacks, which results in his banishment. By the end of the film, Thor's views have changed. Loki's main turning point was after he found out he was a frost giant, but his motivation throughout the movie remained consistent; he wanted to have his father's approval. In Loki's mind, the way to accomplish this was to destroy all the frost giants. However, when his father rejects this idea, Loki supposedly commits suicide. Thus the main difference between Thor and Loki is that Thor was given a chance at redemption and Loki was not. However, another point that could negate this claim is the different methods each brother uses to achieve his ends. Thor is fairly straightforward; he rushes into battle without using his head. Loki on the other hand forms complex and manipulative plans, he establishes trust (an alliance with the frost giant king) only to break it later. Whether the latter point indicates a lack of ethics, or simply more intelligent, it is hard to deny that Loki would be a terrible enemy in a way that Thor wouldn't.

  • He's not evil!

    He's a kid who had emotional trauma, first of all, he learned that he's adopted, he's a monster. He tried so hard to gain Odin's favor, but Odin said NO. Then he gave up. There's no purpose of living anymore. Now he still said he hates his family, but deep down he still loves them.
    'Opposite of love is NOT hate, is indifference,' -Tom Hiddleston.

  • Before he found out he was a frost giant he didn't seem evil

    When he found out he was a frost giant he felt betrayed and he was only at Asgard so they can bring peace with the frost giants and he is jealous of Thor because Thor keeps steeling the spotlight and Thor will be the next king and he is jealous of that too

  • He had no choice

    Where i first saw thor i was like thor is so bad, poor loki. I think circumstances made loki like that. Thor was lucky . I think if loki went to earth instead of thor loki would've been so much better than thor. Everybody is saying he would've done everything for power but they don't realize that (if thor wouldn't have gone to earth and Changed )if loki became the king he would do worse things than loki did. He would have felt exactly the same as loki felt.

  • Loki is Good

    Even though Loki attempted to take over earth, what choice did he have? He was told by Odin when they were young, that one of them (Loki or Thor) would be crowned King of asgard. That created Loki dream. But secretly, Odin never would let Loki rule the throne. When Odin told him that, it crushed his dreams. But he proved in "The Dark World" that he could be a good guy. He saved Thor's life. That's pretty good, huh?

  • It's more complex than that.

    Even though his actions are villainous, Loki can't be simply dismissed as 'evil'. Even though it is no excuse for his actions, his adoptive parents shouldn't have kept the truth about his heritage from him and Odin clearly showed favoritism towards Thor. Sif and the Warriors Three cared nothing for Loki, they tolerated because of Thor who himself was too self absorbed to notice that he belittled his brother for centuries. Loki didn't even want the throne of Asgard, he wanted to be treated as Thor's equal. When he was given the throne (rightfully since Frigga gave it to him), Thor's friends betrayed him in minutes. Truth be told, Thor wasn't ready to rule and Odin failed as a parent to both his children.

  • Circumstances are at fault

    Loki grew up in an environment where physical strength , weapon mastery ,and courage-recklessness where praised and essential in order to be respected.Loki's magic is referred to as "womanly" in mythology and "tricks" in the movies , something that shows us that he was not exactly respected in Asgard.It seems that he was raised in Thor's shadow and that no matter what he accomplished,he remained "inferior" to Thor and was never able to please Odin or make him proud of him.Furthermore, on the topic of friends,by the way Sif and The Warriors Three act around him,as well as their easy betrayal,it seems that they were more of Thor's friends than Loki's and seeing that Loki did not have any other being to support him,it is possible that he had no friends.Everyone also seemed to forget how upset Loki looked when he learned of Thor's banishment, something that proves that he did love his brother at least a little.And suddenly,he learns that not only is he not Thor's brother and Odin's son but he is actually part of the race he was raised to believe were horrible monsters and that he was abandoned as a baby by his real family and taken in by Odin as a kind of "token of war","bargaining chip" etc....Then after a heated argument with Odin that leaves Loki evidently and genuinely upset , Odin enters Odinsleep and Loki is forced to become King to a realm that would never accept him if they knew what he really was , probably never really actually respected or liked him much and is left to deal with the mess Thor left because of his attack to Jotunheimr.The last thing he needed was his only "friends" ignoring his orders and betraying him.And despite his schemes and lies and patricide and the whole i let frost giants in Asgard , he did it all to make Odin proud and prove that he was equal to Thor , only to be rejected once more.Many people forget that Loki actually comitted suicide at the end of Thor and fell into the void which i assume was endless darkness and silence.Then in The Avengers , he may appear mostly psychotic and evil and cause suffering to many people as well as murder people even if it is sometimes indirecly, but there are scenes where he appears tired and in pain without evident reason.And there is also the fact that the sceptre has some kind of influence on whoever touches it and amplifies their negative emotions , as well as the scene where Hulk slams Loki on the ground and Loki is shown to somehow snap out of something.And then in Thor 2 he is shown to truly care for his mother by his reaction to ther death and he does help Jane and Thor despite his lies and hidden agenda.Also, he is the god of mischief,chaos and lies , so it is in his nature to lie and cause chaos.
