Best Animated Movie Villains

The Top TenXW

1Scar from The Lion King

Born by the greatest company of animation, lived and died with the voice of the awesome Jeremy Irons.
Inspired by Hitler, history's most evil human.
Without magical powers, he destroyed almost an entire continent. No other Disney villain has done that before.
Even for a lion, Scar shown to have more human cruelty than any other villain.
He also made the most crying moment of Disney history, Mufasa's death.
He even sang the greatest villain song, about killing his own brother and his nephew. That's even more sick than Claude Frollo

Yes, he is the best. He's cunning, cruel, and not afraid to condemn little cubs to a lifetime of guilt.

Scar is the best! He's the only one who was ever successful with killing someone.

2Lord Shen from Kung Fu Panda 2

Not only voiced by Gary Oldman, this guy is a classy bastard. That thing he does with the throwing knives in his tail is effing amazing to see. Plus, unlike Tai Lung, who was understandably pissed because of what Oogway and Shifu did to him, Shen was pretty much evil through and through, while still being an elaborate character who had his reasons to do what he did - crappy, selfish reasons, but still. He in fact does remind me a bit of Scar from The Lion King, maybe because of his class, his swag or his lust for power (the fact that he looks cool as hell doesn't hurt either); doesn't matter, he's still probably my favorite animated villain ever.

Most evil animated villain ever! Good thing that the climax resulted in his death. He's THAT vicious.

He's the most cunning, skilled, stylish and resourceful villain there is.

Yes. Just. Yes. Best villain ever. - HyenaLover

3Judge Claude Frollo from Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame

As a Christian frollo in my opinion is the most evil villain, for he does so many evil things in the name of the lord. And he dies by falling into hell! (I think, that's what they made it look like) with no powers, and the fact that he's an old man makes his evil more impressive. He lusts for, and gropes Esmeralda at one point, keeps Quasimodo prisoner for all his life, just because he's ugly, and burns innocent families house down for no reason, other than that he was slightly annoyed! Frollo is my all time favorite Disney villain, and he is no doubt the most evil

21, how is Judge Claude Frollo only number 21. He is PURE EVIL, he burns people alive, lust after younger women, murders people and he is only number 21.

Where do I even begin with this guy? He kills an innocent woman, tries to drown her baby, locks him in a tower, lusts over women, plans to burn them alive, offers their freedom for bow chicka bow wow, and burns whole villages...all while claiming to be and I quote, "a righteous man" and "so much purer than the common vulgar weakling" DAMN!

Is it good or bad that this character is so terrifying that even as an adult he still scares me?

5Tai Lung from Kung Fu Panda

Not only is he based on my most favorite animal, he is also a villain whose overbearing pride prevented him from being good. His lust for more power clouded his mind, and was willing to kill even his own master and foster father to achieve his goal. He deserved more screen time then he had.

A very complex character that deserves to return in a sequel to the franchise. I feel like he can be a hero again despite of his past deeds. Still, I would love to see him return and learn more from this amazing character.

7Russ Cargill from The Simpsons Movie

This guy is mad with power and overall sadistic. He's smart he's funny, and really underrated. I mean the place is over polluted by homers pig crap silo, so quarantine the town if you must but don't trap the people, and when the place gets worse and worse, and soon Springfield gets driven into an apocalypse, so what does he do? He plans to blow it up with a nuclear bomb! And when Bart and homer save the town, he still wants them to die, by pointing a shotgun at them.. But his defeat was pretty pathetic by just getting a rock dropped on him by a toddler, but still not a bad villain for the Simpsons first movie.

A corrupt head of the Environmental Protection Agency who's power went to his head, only to fall for one of Bart's crank call names (the treasure of Ima Weiner) and a toddler named Maggie.

The same voice actor who did Hank Scorpio

8Lotso from Toy Story 3

He might smell sweet but he's a rotten strawberry! I never thought I'd see the day I hated a teddy bear...

9Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty

How is Maleficent so far down on the list? She was the best Disney villain of all time. That new movie must have ruined her. In her original film, she cursed a baby because she wasn't invited to a party!

10Jafar from Aladdin

BEST Disney VILLAIN IN MY BOOK, should be in the top 5. He is evil, powerful, and also funny. Why is he not higher on this list

LOSER! And he looks like he's a thousand years old!

The Contenders

11Chernabog from FantasiaV1 Comment
12Gaston from Beauty and the Beast

LeFou, I'm afraid I've been thinking... (A dangerous pastime) I know...but that wacky old coot is Belle's father and his sanity's only so-so...

13Frollo from the Hunchback of Notre Dame
14Megamind from Megamind

Villain in the sense that Metro man was a superhero and for once the supervillain triumphed.

15Zira from the Lion King 2

My second favorite Disney villain, I put here above scar even!

She's just evil, so evil I almost love her. She is upset about her villainous mate's death and cannot see clearly. She trains Kovu to avenge her beloved Scar.
Honestly, Zira's pretty evil.

16One Eye from Speckles the Tarbosaurus

One eye is one of the worst villains of all time like Lord voldemort from Harry Potter and indominus Rex from Jurassic world. And I know he's gone for good by being eaten by tylosaurus in the ocean where SpongeBob and finding nemo live.

17Mrs. Tweedy from Chicken Run

She was sick and tired of making miniscule profits so she bought a pie machine to kill the chickens.

An insane villain voiced by Miranda Richardson of all people.

She's the brains behind the 2 Tweedys. Mr Tweedy is the lacky of the pair.

18Lord Victor Quartermaine from Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

While Wallace and his silent companion Gromit ran a humane pest control business, Lord Quartermaine and his pitbull were a little more ruthless. - Bender0

A hunter with old fashioned tactics involving pest control with a small pitbull for a sidekick. - Dale

JERK! "If I can't have your money, I can still bag your bunny! " I still laugh at that part!
