The Top Ten

Adolf Hitler
He killed 6 million jews, started a second world war, tried to conquer the world, he even tried to create a nuclear bomb. He will go done in history as the greatest monster democracy stopped ever. People feared when the heard over a million people in Nuremburg shout HEIL ADOLF HITLER FUHRER OF GERMANY MASTER OF ALL GERMANS MARTYR FOR KILLING THE JEWISH ENEMY!
He blamed the Jews for Germany's problems. He wanted revenge because the thought Germany was treated unfairly after the first world war. Hitler was a good leader in some ways but he lead his country the wrong way
This man was Satan, himself for killing millions of innocent people.
[Newest]He looks like Charlie Chaplin ha ha ha

2Joseph Stalin
Anyone who didn't agree with the communist ruling were sent to the Gulag or Tortured and executed. One survivor tells that a woman walked into a prison torture chamber and found her husband in a chair with his feet burned so the skin had been peeled off. Also his eyes had been gouged out and his lips had been cut off.
I do know that nazi scientists made experiments on twins in the concentration camps and tried to switch eye colour on prisoners.
After all I have read about world war 2 I have to say that Josef Stalin was the worst. Remember that he also did'nt like jews and sent them to the gulag. It didn't matter who you were if you didn't agree with the Soviet rule you would be tortured or killed. Stalin let the KGB kill people that he saw as a threat, because he wanted to rule Soviet.
When his wife died nobody could see any reaction from Stalin. He didn't cry, he didn't get angry. When his own son were captured by the germans he didn't even try to negotiate. He told the germans that he didn't negotiate with fascists.


How is barrack obama worse than this man. Do you people know anything of history. Obama didn't kill twenty million people of his own country because he wanted to stay in power. Am I the only young person in this world that knows anything about history.
[Newest]Hitler is #1 because most people are MORONS, SHEEP, CATTLE, IGNORANT ETC.

Stalin was pure evil. Hitler was nothing compared to Stalin.

3Vlad the Impaler
Well I saw a lot more Georg W Bush and Barack Obama, but there not evil there just morons now Vlad the Impaler is the real deal. He was so evil that it is rumored that not even Satin welcomed him to hell. Point number 1 he had a very homicidal character. Point number 2 he killed thousands of innocent people those who were not Catholic, he killed people for entertainment, he would literally roast little children and make there parents eat them (that is far worse than abortion), and for capital punishment he would impale his victims with a wooden pool by jabbing them from the groin or vagina all the way to the inside of the brain and harvest there blood for wine. Point number 3 it's because of his brutality that had inspire the story of Count Dracula.
1) Vlad ate in the fields of impaled rotting corpses, dipping his bread in a bowl of their blood. He even had one of his guest's nose cut off and impaled the man for simply plugging his nose during dinner because of the rotting smell.

2) These fields were mix between people hanging on spikes, and those who received the round end. The round end was inserted in anally and were hung there for days until before dying from the weather or dehydration.

Think about it. A field of rotting corpses, hundreds of people screaming in agony, and this guy doesn't lose his appetite, it actually makes him hungry?

3) Most of the other evil people in history ordered mass killing for political gain or to exploit free labor. It got to the point where Vlad was taking innocent people to impale just b/c he gets off on it laugh out loud.
This was not a terrible monster in the way most of these crazy, power hungry, people. This was a sad, sad man bent on revenge for his treatment after witnessing the atrocities of war and valorously saving his people from slaughter. Coming home crippled his battle torn mind. Think of this, we have solders today coming back from war scared for life without injury and we use weapons that either blow people up or tear through people from a distance. Now imagine having to go into battle with the weapons of that time and the damage that would cause after war with no morals. He also had as close to NO CRIME during his reign.
[Newest]You know, honestly, I don't think any of these men are genuinely "evil." I feel like evil is more people doing, what society calls, bad deeds for personal gain or for no reason at all. Most of these men had an agenda with pure ideals, but the way they executed their plans are the only things that make people think they are "evil."

4Barack Obama
Barack Hussein Obama is the least experienced person to be be elected to the highest office in the land. And he has not disappointed. During his first four years in office, he will have presided over the highest deficits, highest unemployment, highest poverty/welfare levels, and highest levels of class and racial division in US history. In addition, relations with Israel are at historic lows, Russia has gained in power and world standing, and Iran will likely have developed nuclear weapons under his watch.
Actually, employment was lowest during the 1970s, during the great depression, and during 2004 when George W. Bush was in office. The highest levels of poverty in this nation was 90 years ago, and the highest level of class and racial division was during the civil rights movement. Our relations with Israel have been pretty lenient and the same for the past 20 years, Russia has been a world power since the 19th century, and Iran has already developed nuclear weapons, 20 years ago, you're thinking of Iraq.
Technically and legally his name is Barry Soetoro from Indonesia. He did not legally change his name back. He is among the greatest frauds in history! We still know very little about this person, yet he was elected twice…the second time was likely due to massive voter fraud. His birth certificate that was finally released by the White House is a forgery and there IS proof, thus a law suit has been filed to deport this fraud back to Indonesia!
At least Stalin had the decency to not pretend to not rule with an iron fist, anybody who knows about how economics really work will tell you that he is the worst at actually leading this country, his only claim to fame is being president while Osama got killed, but let me ask you this, what would've happened to his chances of being reelected if we found out he let bin laden get away. At least Bush didn't blame Clinton for his failures, Obama can't even go one day without blaming his failures on everybody, and, as a typical democrat, he'll get away with it all and be called really great for screwing our country, economy, and freedoms.
[Newest]I personally think that he is a bad President.

5Osama bin Laden
I wonder why this one is seventh. Surely his evilness level is equal to if not more than Hitler? And why is Obama 3rd? He might not be a good president, but he's definitely not as evil as Hitler or bin Laden who were responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people. A moron such as Laden should be in the top 3.
He is definitely not more evil than Hitler, but I agree. Bush and Obama need to be much lower.
One of the most evil beings the world has ever known
He is one of the Great Leader... Because he worked very perfectly all things..

6Kim Jong Un
Evil.Small.Fat.stupid. How can the usa start thousands of problems in the middle east and NOT blow out his brains I think he deserves it most he's like adolf hitler 2.0... Anyone agree? How can anybody think putting a crazy maniac teletubby in control of anything is a good idea? I don't get it, I'm going to put him in the drawer that I put osama, adolf and justin bieber in...
He is a crimes against humanity and torture his own fellow north Korean.
The North Korean No1 Pig = Kim Jong Un

7Pol Pot
He is stupid killed over 4, 000, 000 innocent people for power he has a had a huge prison with only 16 people emerged alive
Really should be number 1 on this list, he was the worst of Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia and Mao's China combined.
Pol pot was completly insane. He admittly killed 3 MILLION inonnocent cambodians to till soil with there bare hands. In his biggest jail, only 15 people emerged alive. His farms were known as the 'killing fields'. At least hitler gave a reason for the death of 6 million jews. It may have been a lie, but it will do (not saying that hitler was a good man)! His prison man holds the record of 'largest war criminal convicted in the 21st centruy'

Napoleon started the Napoleonic wars which were probably worse than world war 1 and 2 caused thousands of his own troops to freeze to death. He killed millions of people because he's a disposable and he tried to conquer the world
He was good and bad.
He invaded lots of country's and that caused 300000million deaths

9Genghis Khan
He also became one of the first leaders to adopt free religion and created a set of laws that sound more like the commandments then evil murderous laws. Just go to the Genghis Khan exhibit that will help you see the real Genghis not the cruel monster every wants him to be
Genghis khan slaughtered (babies men women did not matter who) the entire population of a village but 1 person or 2 who he allowed to run away after burning down the entire city/village all so the next city would surrender with out fighting even if they where much stronger then the invading Mongolian army.
He slaughtered more people than hitler. When he was attacking the shaw tribe their was a moat around there castle his horses could not get around so he made a bridge of his drowned captives
[Newest]He killed people using the lead sprinkler which involved pouring molten metal or silver in the victims eyes or ears.

10Mao Zedong
Geeze, that dude is evil! Ignoring the fact that he killed a bunch of citizens, the people he killed are mostly university students and doctors, can you believe that? He actually sort of drugged the solders to turn them against their own people, he's darn crazy I tell u! And he's the dude who lets the students to object him in the first place, what?! Except that he totally ruined the country by causing a famine (killed ~20percent people off), destroying thousands of old articrafts, brainwashing the people to kill off scholars and famous artists and writers in the great cultural revolution. he's probably losing his touch as he gets older!
This guy killed 30 million to 100 million innocent people, what a devil from hell.
No leader killed more of his own people than mao
Plus people in china think he is a hero because the lies they watch on T.V.
[Newest]Mao killed 40 million of his own people, yet somehow he's 11th.

The Contenders

11Idi Amin
This guy would chop up his enemies/people he'd punished, keep their remains in his fridge as trophies and laugh at them. If anything he should be up there next to Vlad the Impaler.
I can only say that he was just evil. If he is to come back on this earth, even satan would repent.
This man was truly Satanic. He even ate the meat of his victims. Can you just imagine the way those people were tormented by being treated as animals for food.

This is ridiculous! Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a loving, gentle man! If he was evil, do you think that millions of people around the world would be following the religion sent for him to preach by Allah? Just read this and decide whether or not you think that words like this would come out of an evil mans mouth: "You do not do evil to those who do evil to you, but you deal with them with forgiveness and kindness"
I am a fourteen year old girl, and even I know that an evil man would not have said such meaningful and beautiful words. I think you need to use your brain and redefine the meaning of "evil" in your naïve little world.
I am Christian but he is a good man
Muhammad (pbuh) is a Messenger of Allah, He is a Messenger of love and Peace.
All Muslims Love Him more then Any thing.
Your arguments shows that you are an ignorant and damn fool man, knows nothing and just barking

13Richard Nixon
Really? Evil? He was a liar but he certainly wasn't one of the top ten evil leaders ever.
Between Vietnam and Watergate it just shows you how evil he can be... Plus he tried to hide it from the people... Watse of skin all around
Dick was a champion,

14George W. Bush
Brought utter destruction upon a great nation. One of the worst ever. Worst on the economy, started a war based on lies (murder), brought cronyism to a new level, unprecedented tax breaks for the rich leading to the middle class starting to fade. Horrible failure as a communicator, spoke like a dimwitted fool. It will take a generation or more for the USA to recover from Bush. He should be jailed.
The face of US-capitalism. Started war in the Middle East that lead to thousands of people suffering. He greatly increased anti-Americanism all over the world, and set in motion the downfall of the US as a superpower.
Actully we voted for him once and he got in unfairly and why is obama on the list he shouldn't be in this list. And this is exactly where bush should be... Hitler is the worst by far


[Newest]He murdered his fellow leader Saddam Hussein.

15Saddam Hussein
Actually, Saddam didn't have nukes. Read a newspaper, geez! While he didn't have WMD's, he did use gas attacks, under the guise of testing them, in an attempt to wipe out the Kurdish people who populate northern Iraq. He was a monster, and I'm glad he's dead.
Saddam may not have killed as many as Stalin or Hitler did, but when he kill people he asked his mercenaries in the most brutal ways, Burn, bury them alive, Acid pools, throw them off the third floor. Besides when you commit a "sin" against the great leader, not only that you will be executed by yourself but you father and uncles will suffer the same fate.
He used nuclear weapons on his own people to attack the army but it hardly did any thing apart from let every one see how much of a monster he was and he won on deadliest warrior so this guy is king of the monsters

16Fidel Castro
Same as many other latinamerican dictators but managed to stay in power by selling himself as a lefty leader for the poor. In reality under communist Cuba everybody became poor but he and his family
He should be first. He is the wost man ever. He sucks ass. He should stop democracy
I mean he wanted to throw the presedent of Cuba overboard in a moving car.

17Ivan the Terrible
He was terrible he beat his pregnant daughter in law causing a miscarriage when his son heard. of this he confronted him but ivan killed him. He also invaded the city called Novgorod and ordered 500 to 1000 people be tortured to death in front of him each day this included being skinned disembowled boiled fried and beaten to death. 60000 people were killed not to mention the thousands of people that were killed on other occasions. He forced hundreds of parents to watch their children be tortured and killed.

18Richard III of England
Henry the 8th was not evil. He founded the Church of England (I'm Methodist, and Methodism is kinda Anglican). Richard I was evil. Killed his nephews, brother, wife, and supporters of Edward IV. Trust me, this king was EVIL!

19Leopold II
Killed millions of Congolese colonial subjects through forced labor to support his rubber-fueled economy afloat

20Henry the 8th
Most needlessly executed during his reign, including 2 of his 6 wives.
I am henry the eighth I am, married the widow next door.

21Kim Jong-il
I am from South Korea and I hate him. I always wondered why he is even trying to fight with the whole world. He is an idiot enough to try to fight 1 on 1000000.

He killed innocent people! Mother flipper he was a no good, dirty bastard
That should have been burned at the stake, twice!
The one from star trek? Just kidding he this guy was deranged!
EVIL I SAY! He Killed His First Wife And He Dident Care To Go To Her Funeral. His Second Wife He Gave Her His First Wife's Head As A Gift. He Killed His Second Wife As Well By Kicked Her To Death In A Argument
[Newest]He poured wax over Christians and burned them alive like candles.

Killed 10 million people

24Ferdinand Marcos
He corrupted our system with martial law
He killed many Filipinoes

25Benito Mussolini
Fashist Dictator helped hitler

26King George III
He was a greedy, lazy, damanding, fat, and a no good bastard. He diserved the horrblie fate he got.

27John F. Kennedy
How is JFK evil?
There's nothing evil about John Kennedy! I'm pretty sure why you think is that he got assassinated.
JFK was a great leader

28Ronald Reagan
Sure, Reagan was a great man: he stood up for the greatest of us. Those who actually needed government help were of no concern to him. Spreading lies about welfare recipients and lowering taxes for people who needed no more money, Reagan was heartless.
He was truly evil. He advocated the use of economic terror through suppression of the poor, and he got away with it.
If you look him up in an unbiased encyclopedia its guaranteed you will be traumatized for months. He is actually worse than Hitler

29Louis XVI

30Stephen Harper
Should be higher. Committed election fraud, created the worst deficit in Canadian History, was found in contempt of parliament, and the list goes on and on.
Like Putin, but worse

31Muammar Gaddafi

32Recep Tayyip Erdoğan

33Park Geun-hye
She is stereotyped woman.
She doesn't know the world rule.
She fabricates the history.
She doesn't deserve to be President of South Korea.

34Andrew Jackson
The Trail of Tears. Enough said..Do you think the Native Americans understood the idea of private property?
Killed plenty of natives and was known for his brutality in war and executions
He killed too many native to count


35Sultan Abdulaziz
The biggest thief in the history
Saudi media exaggerates praise because he is a Saudi prince
But in fact he is ignorant vile thief and moronic
His scandals and many thefts and shady deals at the expense of the state
After his death, found his fortune enough to saturate Africa famine
Go to hell

Probably the craziest most sadistic ruler in history. He made his horse a senator, battled Neptune and claimed victory by taking the sea shells back to Rome, made the senator's wives become prostitutes... He was unique.
Hitler and osamma where pathetic to him. He used to order child executions and force parents to watch. He raped his sisters and would amputate people for fun. He scalped anyone with hair that he didn't like and would drag spectators into pits of lions when there was no gladiators left. He killed people regardless of race, gender or status, Hitler may have killed Jews and Osama may have targeted nonbelievers but with Caligula no one was safe.

47Jefferson Davis

48Ahmad Shah Durrani
The best king of the world

49Winston Churchill
I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.
To the Peel Commission (1937) on a Jewish Homeland in Palestine
Best prime minister in history
