Anime News Network:
Losing gracefully and admitting defeat is a skill and some characters, especially villains, aren't particularly good at it. It's never the losers fault that they didn't succeed. Blame is either passed around to the nearest person, or worse, the loser seeks revenge against whomever bested them. Planets are destroyed, children are threatened, and passive-aggressive swimmers blow up friendships all in the name of a friendly competition.
