The story begins with the camera aimed towards the quote unquote “villain”. He spots a small critter, and begins to chase it. From the way the “villain” appears, it is assumed to be a menacing chase (though this has not been proven). After a bit of chase, the quote unquote “good guy” suddenly appears, the camera having him centered as lights make him look amazingly spectacular and godly. The critter runs behind the “hero”, and the “villain” catches up to notice, from boot to head camera pan, that his path has been blocked. He complains, in essence pantomiming “How dare you block my path”. The “good” guy sizes up his foe, and puffs out his chest to show superiority. The “villain” continues to complain, but is eventually shoved off screen. The critter, thankful for being saved, faces his savior, wagging it’s tail or whatever this critter’s equivalent would be. The “hero” stares at the critter blankly for a few seconds… and then punts the critter with the same blank expression. The camera zooms in on the villains face or body, showing some form of shock that he’d do such a thing. The “evil” creature begins to grow in anger, as the camera switches back and forth between the raging “villain” and the oblivious “hero” who is by this point laughing at his superior strength he’s exhibited to the innocent critter. By the time the “villain” reaches the “hero”, he ends up thwarting him in a way that is unique to the character design picked. The “villain” sees in the distance the harmed critter, and approaches it, picking it up delicately as it remains motionless. The “villain” essentially ressusitates the critter, and it becomes a pet of the “villain”, albeit somewhat more resembling the “villain’s” appearance afterwards (if the skeleton in robes, the critter will be undead, if the demon, its soul may become some form of fiery mote, if the shadow creature, it may take it’s shadow and animate it, etc etc). The film then ends with the two walking off as the critter now shows the same excitement it’d originally shown for the “hero” to the “villain”.
