Okay, looking for exactly what the title says. I'm tired of all the goody goody characters. I'd like to read something where the main character is a bad guy. Oh, and I want him/her to win in the end (granted there is something to win); I'll be honest, the whole time I was watching The Avengers I was crossing my fingers for Loki to win. I guess it doesn't have to necessarily be a hardcore bad guy, just someone who is overall not a nice person for the main character. Romance is a plus smile

Sorry if it doesn't make a lot of sense and thanks in advance! Oh, and if there is a category for what I'm looking for, could you head me in the right direction, because I couldn't find one that seemed fitting ^^'

Thank you so much! I kept looking around for things like evil protagonist and things like that. I never would have thought of the word antihero xD

Antiheroes are still fundamentally heroic, they just have flaws or negative aspects to their characters. You could check out the Villain Protagonist category on tvtropes for some ideas.
