Take whatever booty you can find! But remember, the beast is MINE!
~ Gaston laying a siege on the Beast's castle.

In many a story, there comes a time when the villain raids a place and/or lays a siege on a place, country, town, or city. This is one of the most evil acts ever done by an antagonist, and it can be for these reasons:

  • To rid the land of real or imagined threats
  • To find a source of supreme power
  • To find an enemy to bring down
  • To steal treasure for himself
