The Top Ten

Adolf Hitler
What he did was horrible (duh), but if we're not careful something like that will happen again. We can't let history repeat itself. Although in other places it already has.
Sadistic pig he should have been hanged. Too many innocent lives lost because of him
He systematically murdered approx 12 million people, including 6 million Jews. Stalin #2, Pol Pot #3.
[Newest]Hitler is only #3 all time, Mao Zedong is the leader by a mile, with Stalin at #2.

2Jack The Ripper
Hitler Didn't actually kill anyone himself, his army did. Jack The Ripper killed people himself.


Like America's Zodiac Killer, Jack the Ripper was never caught nor identified. And he terrorized the city he lived in.
Unbelievable he is not #1 the most notorious

3Charles Manson
He can still make the news 40 years later.


4Josef Stalin
Stalin killed more people than Hitler
but Hitler killed people in a more horrible way


5Pol Pot
slaughtered thousands during his reign of terror in Cambodia

6Albert Fish
Anyone who writes the mother of the child he just ate and explains how good it was, deserves to be higher up on the list...
He ate children. Enough said...
He was called the boogie man

7Jeffrey Dahmer
He did say at one of his trials that he's sorry for what he did, the victims' loved ones have every right to hate him, and that if he could give his own life to bring them back he would.
Cannibal, sick killer. Hitler, Joeseph Stalin, Charles Manson and Pol Pot are not murderers. They're manipulative, evil masterminds. Never killed any individually, and if they did, hardly notoriously.
He was necrophilic and a cannibal. He killed some of his victims by injecting hydrochloric acid into holes in their skulls that he drilled. He preserved their body parts. As a child he impaled a dog.

8Ted Bundy
he killed more people and raped more corpses than dahmer he should be ahead of him

9Ed Gein
He only killed like 2 people in his life. But he was so obsessed with body parts that he would always go to cemeteries and dig up the corpses of dead women so that he could make a mask out of their skin.

Funfact: this was the inspiration for Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
this is almost a home state thing but also it was so sick that he should get 1


10Richard Chase

The Contenders

11Osama Bin Laden
He s the leader of Al-Qaeda who terrorizes the world, most evil annoying ugly creature in human history


Invicted fear in so many lives of Americans.
Leader of Al-Qeada.

12Richard Speck

13Saddam Hussein

14The Zoidac Killer
Probably the most intelligent serial killer of all time.

15Tim McVeigh

16Bob Berdella

17Aileen Wuornos

18Seung-Hui Cho

19Mark Chapman
Just because the person he killed was famous doesn't mean he should be above John Wayne gacy.


The man who killed John Lennon.

20John Wayne Gacy
He targeted young men and boys and buried their corpses under his house. Sicko!
