The antagonist and the villain's journey are two separate and distinct entities.

The antagonist is a form of supernatural aid who provokes and pushes and is a measure of the hero's capacities. Goliath is an enemy but he is also the benchmark which David is measured against.

Thus the villain in the villain's journey also has his own antagonists.
