This is the idea that one single, potent antagonist is better than a group or sequence of smaller, less potent ones.
it ignores the concept of the intimidation arc. Which is where the
single, potent antagonist is the culmination of arcing through
increasingly potent antagonisms.
In sum, the best bet (as we see
in Star Wars or Die Hard) is a group of smaller, increasingly potent
antagonisms leading to the single, most potent antagonism at the end.
is a psychological basis to this - the antagonisms the hero faces are a
measure of the hero's own increasing change. Antagonisms and their
potency are a reflection of the hero's own increasing new self,
awakening and other elements.
