Is Edward Scissorhands the villain? #EdwardScissorhands #JohnnyDepp #TimBurton

This is a frequently asked question on Google. I’m providing an answer here.

Despite his potentially alarming appearance, with sharp scissor blades for hands and cuts on his face, Edward Scissorhands is not the villain in the film.

Instead, the main antagonist is Jim, who was the boyfriend of Winona Ryder’s character Kim. Jim is played by Anthony Michael Hall, and causes trouble in the neighbourhood and antagonises Edward, goding him to fight.
