What's a protagonist and a antogonist? Is the antogonist bad or good? Same as protagonist.

Here's some text that's very personal.
Protagonists are good and antagonists are bad.

Actually, protagonists don't necessarily have to be good. Artemis Fowl from the book series of the same name is a prime example of a villainous protagonist.

The protagonist is the main character of the book, basically, the one who the book revolves around. Antagonist is the force or person who opposes the protagonist.

Usually the protagonist is a good guy though, which makes the antagonist evil.

Basically, the person battling the conflict is the protagonist, and whatever he's fighting is the antagonist.

So, in AF7, Artemis is both the protagonist and an antagonist.

Most of the time, protagonists (the staring roles) are the good people, while antagonists (the opposite of the staring roles) are the evil people.
However, it's not always the case, like in Death Note, where the protagonist is pure evil, while the antagonists are some kind of saving the people from being killed.

Death Note is a terrible example of that. What makes Death Note fantastic is that there is no pre-determined hero or villain, it's all morally ambiguous; who you side with is entirely based on your own personal standards of good and evil, and whether or not you believe Light's "ends justifies the means" philosophy is the only path to peace. Neither side was meant to be the good or bad team.
