The Top Ten

The Joker
By far the most intriguing and unique villain, point-blank. It's not everyday (or any day, honestly) that you get a villain who simply wants to "watch the world burn" and nothing more; it's not everyday that you get a villain who is so mentally gone that there is absolutely no probability of them ever regaining their sanity (which brings up the question "Was the Joker ever truly sane? ").

The Joker is simply a masterpiece of a character, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that many, including myself, agree that he is the best villain in villain history.
Easily the best, not the most powerful, but the very best. He has the best character in all of fictional history. Some people underestimate him as just some mad cereal killer, but trust me, the killing joke is the absolute best character to research, discover and to just learn more about. His name is unknown as well as his past ( but told to be harsh by the jokers wicked stories) and has no limits to his pure evil soul.
Joker is by far the best he is crazy, iconic and unknown plus if you watch the dark knight you will understand how much chaos he causes and pisses batman off. he killed jason todd robin and crippled batgirl
[Newest]The comic joker was good, Nicholson was great, and Ledger was absolutely insane. By far the greatest villain.

2Darth Vader

Voldemort is smart powerful and could really kill anyone that tries to confront him. The only reason he loses is because of his own mistakes.

4The Emperor

5Hannibal Lecter

6Freddy Krueger
Freddy's comin for you

Better lock your door
(Can't. )
Grab your crucifix

14Stewie Griffin (Family Guy)
Family guy 1 year old child which actually acts like an adult tries to take over the world and murder his mommy

15Lex Luthor

16Plankton (Spongebob Squarepants)
He should be in the top 2 along with Mr. Burns

17Doctor Doom

18Bellatrix Lestrange
She freaks me out. have you ever noticed that she seems to dance instead of walk? And how about that awesome wand moves she used in DH: part 1 when she thought the kids had been in her vault? Seriously scary

He killed almost every Marvel hero!
Magneto is the best, I mean just look at him he's an Aushwitz Nazi victim searching revenge on humanity. Controls electromagnetism so he can easily control the fan favorite X-man.

20Jason Voorhees
He was the who killed many people in the film friday the 13th

21Hades (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief)

22Ice King (Adventure Time)
He's funny and he just doesn't use all his power he could freeze Finn to death or could even overpower the lich he could freeze the entire planet but adventure time producers just have to make him basically a clown that uses about 1% of 100% of his power

23Count Olaf
not in the movies but read the books. EVIL


25Super Buu (Dragon Ball Z)

26Red Skull

27Professor Moriarty
Moriarty's diabolical plans have threatened he must be in top ten...

39Shao Kahn

40Loki (Marvel)
He is epic only thor can touch him ( not a villain}


42Sweeney Todd

Bowser is definitely the greatest villain of all the video game villains. I'll admit he's not smartest villain out there, but he will never give up on his goal to kidnap Princess Peach, destroy Mario, and take over the Mushroom Kingdom no matter how many times he is defeated.
The mighty Koopa King will always and forever be the greatest villain in the history of all villains that ever existed. Bowser says if you don't think that he'll incinerate you with his fire breath.
