Greatest Final Fantasy Villains


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Zemus (FFIV)

While he may not be #1 material, Zemus definitely deserves credit. He controlled nearly every single part of the plot and had two of the main protagonists doing his bidding. He had everyone convinced that Golbez was the one pursuing the power of the crystals right until the very end.

His only downfall was that he didn't remove Cecil from the picture early, which literally every villain is guilty of.

This guys the real villain, who just sits in prison hiding controlling the characters of the game turning them into a bastard, that's pretty cool.

22Golbez (FF4)

He's a villian that deserves a higher rank! Wheneverhe meets Cecil he manages to actually defeat him! While other villians have trouble beating their main charatcers, not to mention he took control of Kain, and made him fight his best friend! Not to mention nobody saw the twist near the end!

23Shadow Lord (FF11)
24Wiegraf Folles (FFT)

A two-sided villain who uses his ideals of equality as his motives for fighting against the nobles��"he and his people were wronged. He knows what's going on, he understood how the world worked and how no one was truly good. He attacked the protagonist because he killed his sister, who also acted out of pride��"Wiegraf may not even be a "true" villain until the Lucavi take him.

25Seifer Almasy (FFVIII)
26The Dark King (FF:MQ)

He was a green king and you had to beat his ass like 6 times to finally kill him. Plus this dude lived in effing Doom Castle. DUH!

27Nero (Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII)
28Rufus Shinra (FF7)

An underrated villain in the Final Fantasy world. Unlike many of the villains in this series, Rufus isn't your usual, maniacal-laughing stereotypical villain. Instead, he has a cold, calculating approach that villains like Sephiroth and Kefka lack. Every decision he makes is a part of a much greater scheme that he has planned, and his ability to manipulate people and events to work in his favor is something you don't see in most villains in this series. If he had been written as one of the main antagonists of the series, he might have gotten more recognition as the villain he is.
