    Default Are Detergentagonists and Love Interests the same thing?

    In a story The Main Character is the protagonist, the bad guy, or at least someone who directly opposes the protagonist is the antagonist. I heard somewhere that the Detergentagonist is the second most important character - does that only account for the Love Interests, or not?
    The one true comparison to love and hate is; when you allow either to overcome you, it can make it so that you canít think of anything other than that one person...

    That seems like an incredibly unnecessary name for something that is probably far simpler. In all honesty though, I have never heard the term. And I've spent a lot of times in that general area on tvtropes

    Detergentagonists are great for cleaning things.

    Not necessarily. The deuteragonist is simply the second most important character. For example, Mario is the protagonist, Luigi is the deuteragonist.

    So I actually came across this word today. The Detergentagonist (did I spell that right?) is just the second most important character, and can be the antagonist. So Bowser is probably the Detergentagonist to Mario's maincharactergentagonist.

    Don't let Luigi hear you say that!

    I'm sure he takes it all in his stride, he's a pretty cool guy and doesnt afraid of anything - except ghosts.
