Don't forget:

Evil, because although they are actually doing something good, they are the villains for doing it through evil acts.

That would be a variant of the "the ends do not justify the means" quote I take it?

I think that Lavos intentionally ended up on earth, as Azala seemed to know it was going to fall.

Uh yeah...because a giant friggin' red object was in the sky getting closer and closer each day  :D. It doesn't necessarily mean Lavos ended up there intentionally, however.

But logically speaking, Lavos would have to be able to direct where it wanted to go. Reproduction just wouldn't be that efficient otherwise.

I don't think Lavos and Efficient are two things that fit together, he sat on his duff for 65+ Million years collecting DNA when Humanity Hasn't changed all that much from the time of Zeal and there weren't that many variants in the evolution of Fiends to explain why he waited as long as he did to reproduce.

Yes, although I always find it interesting the irony present when the heroes realize they just finished with the only hope many other people had, like in Tales of Phantasia. Where there is a big, "Oh no, what have we done?" situation.

Ah yes... Dhaos... I totally did not see that coming when I had finished that game. It was indeed ironic.
