We can't stop talking about Cobra Kai season 5. From the best character, to the reason behind the tribute in episode three, and the anticipation surrounding a potential season 6. Fans are now all praising the character arcs in the show, pointing out how well the villains are redeemed.
After five seasons of Cobra Kai, it's fair to say viewers are invested in the characters and their storylines. What with John Kreese's imprisonment, the fall out from the All Valley Tournament and Terry Silver taking over Cobra Kai. It's a lot.
But one thing people can't stop commenting on is how brilliant the character arcs of the show are, which remind us you can't always tell who is the hero and who is the villain, and how that reflects true personalities.
As one fan put it, "Cobra Kai is an excellent life lesson on how hard it is to tell who's the villain and who's the hero." Someone else said, "Most legacy sequels wouldn't bother with half the stuff that Cobra Kai is doing in its fifth season, like having the trilogy's hero team up with the villains of the first two films to... party and reminisce."
Others put, "The redemption of a villain is one of the most difficult stories to tell. But Cobra Kai nailed it 3 times. Season 5 kills."

Cobra Kai Season 1 is a master class in perspective and character arc.

Why do villain prequels when Cobra Kai has such a better model? Continue the story from the old villain’s POV, give them a humanizing arc, allow for complexity and redemption, and don’t forget the badass stuff that worked the first time.
That’s way better than mom-killing dogs.

Cobra Kai definitely has a lesson for redemption arc. Make sure your character shows they are worthy of such and show the progression.
