Pure Evil Wiki

We can win a war against the humans. Not only because we have the support of Hazel's master, but because the Faunus are the dominant species of this planet. We're better than humans. We have everything humans have and more. Humans shouldn’t just fear the Faunus, they should serve the Faunus.
~ Adam, expressing his desires to Sienna Khan.
People hurt me long before we met... All sorts of people in all sorts of ways... but no one hurt me quite like you...You didn't leave scars, you just left me alone. So... tell me, Blake... how does it feel to be alone?
~ Adam, explaining his reasons for revenge against Blake.

Adam Taurus was a major antagonist in the ongoing American animated webseries RWBY. He served as the main antagonist to Blake and secondary antagonist to Yang during the Beacon arc and Haven arc. Adam was a violent, malevolent, sociopathic, sadistic, and spiteful person who thought the world owed him for being abused by society. In his own twisted sense of justice, Adam claimed to be fighting for Faunus equality when is actuality, he wanted to subjugate the humans to slavery and to eradicate those who stood in his way. His plans ultimately failed when he was ousted by the other members of the White Fang and during his fight against Blake and Yang in Argus.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • He committed multiple terrorist acts with no consideration for any of the innocent civillians who died in them, all the while covering them up by posing as a well-intentioned extremist.
  • Murdered dozens if not hundreds of innocent people, all to satisfy his bloodlust.
  • Took pleasure in physical and mentally abusing Blake.
  • Took part in the Fall of Beacon by unleashing a horde of Grimm onto the city during the Vytal Festival.
  • Tried to kill Blake all because he wanted revenge for her turning on him, when in reality, his abuse of her is what drove her away from him in the first place.
  • Before attempting to murder Blake in cold blood, he swore to her that he would stop at nothign to destroy everything she loved (which he repeatedly proved multiple times later in the series).
  • Sliced of Yang's arm during one of his attempts at killing Blake. He later almost killed both of them.
  • Murdered Sienna Khan in cold blood and usurped her position as the High Leader of the White Fang.
  • Lead a White Fang attack on Haven Academy in an attempt to destroy it, and even tried to detonate explosives to kill himself, Blake and all of the other Faunus present (including the ones that were part of the White Fang).
  • He slaughtered his former followers of the White Fang when they questioned his actions.
  • After attempting to destroy Haven, he returned to stalking Blake in his attempts to murder her as revenge for her "ruining his life" which in actuality was something that he brought upon himself.
  • Although he had a tough life that he suffered constant racism, he far passes it as he uses it as an excuse for his various murders. However, the narrative makes it clear that he does it out of sadism as he doesn't care for anyone else.
  • Was given multiple chances from both Blake and Yang to let go of the past, and to leave them alone. But, ultimately, he refused, thinking they were just trying to weasel their way out of fighting him.


  • The creator’s stated that Adam’s last moments of looking up at the sky was him realizing his evil deeds and feeling remorse for them. If this was shown in story, it would stop making him Pure Evil.
  • Manga [RWBY: The Official Manga] version of him is not court for Pure Evil because he not get more screen-time and he is flashback character in this manga set.
  • Comic Book [RWBY DC Comic] version of him are not court here.
