- Q: I think X is an anti-hero because of insert characteristics here. Can I add them to the list?
- A: If you want to add a character to the list, you have to have a reliable source explicitly calling them an anti-hero. Adding a character based on your opinion (even if you are correct and your character fits the criteria) is original research and will be removed.
- Q: I disagree with X's placement on this list. They're not an anti-hero because insert reason here. They should be removed.
- A: Assuming that the anti-hero in question is properly cited, it stays. Again, like the previous question, removing a character based on a personal opinion would fall under original research.
