Terminology

In storytelling, an antagonist is any character who goes against the protagonist of the story. In the domain of video games, an antagonist is an umbrella term for enemies or bosses, although some antagonists may never be encountered during gameplay, and instead may be characterised as something akin to a "silent partner" or "shadow organization".
