Red flag/toxic characters in bl

Some toxic/red-flag characters in bl shows, that i love to hate.

OBS! - May contain some spoilers.

There's a big range of toxic characters and they're toxic in very different ways. Some are just pushy and clingy while some of them are pure abusers and criminals.

So I will rank the ''toxicity'' from 1-5, in which the characters are mostly rude, clingy, jealous, possessive, liars, manipulators, cheaters etc.

And then 6-10, in which the characters are everything from abusers, r*pists, kidnappers, stalkers or in some ways incredibly obsessed with the other.
