The Top Ten

Bowser - The Mario Franchise
The king of the Koopas is by far the coolest video game villain of all time.
I think he's most definitely the cuteest bad guy but he can be very annoying


Ahem. YEAH! Bowser is the single most awesome villian in all of existence. He has all the perfect qaulities. He is wel known, powerful, tries to take over glaxies, and is the best video game characters rival. GO BOWSER!

2Ganondorf - The Zelda Franchise
This should be number notice I didn't say he but ganondorf wants to kill every body and rule the earth while bowser just wants peach and ganondorf has been revised som many times
he never dies even with a sword stabbed in his heart or head ude
till "killing" him rocks
aside from the joker, this should be #1

3The Joker - Batman: Arkham City
The Joker is a villian who has been around since the 1940s. He is one of the most iconic and consistently popular characters in popular culture ever. Mark Hamill has provided the character with the best voice possible for nearly 20 years.
The greatest villain of all time
The thing that makes Joker so difficult to defeat, and so awesome, is his unpredictability. He causes destruction for the sake of destruction. Will he target one guy? Will he target a whole city? You'll never know. If that doesn't make a villain, what does?

4GlaDOS - Portal
The cake is a lie need I say more.
You are a Horrible Person that's what it says-glaDOS

5Eggman - The Sonic Franchise
He is the E.G.G.M.A.N. before saying that he is now turned into a joke remember the Scrap Brain Zone in 1991. He has the potential to take over the world.

6Vladmir Makarov - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 & 3
You guys are all crazy, Makarov killed more people in one airport massacre then the rest of the villains on this list combined in their lifetime.
Makarov is one hell of a bad guy. He slaughtered dozens of people in an airport, killed 30,000 men with a nuke and killed Soap Mctavish.
A cold blooded killer who isn't above big airport massacres. "Remember, no Russian".

7Andrew Ryan - Bioshock
The best kind of villain is one who Is evIl but Is humanIzed and that you can sympathize with and nobody fits that description better than Andrew Ryan.
He is an amazing character who is so twisted that he almost convinces you he's right. He's a dominating and charismatic personality, indeed.

8Sephiroth - Final Fantasy VII
Nobody is more badass than Sephiroth. Everything he does and says is awesome. He has the coolest sword ever too. Anyone who doesn't think he should be #1 either hasn't played FF7 or is an idiot.
Are you kidding me? This guy has gitta b the most badas villain calling has ever seen. Check other polls. Full find him to b the toughest villain to find his way into games

9Ridley - Metroid Franchise

10Albert Wesker - The Resident Evil Franchise
How can you not vote for him? Bad ass. Enough said.
He's also a pain in the ass to beat if you don't have
A infinite rocket launcher. I looked at my stats and he got
The most kills off of me. He killed me exactly 52 times. So yeah,
Get infinite rocket launcher.
The best villains of all time

The Contenders

11Dr. Wily - Mega Man
Beware of Goo from Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends!


12Handsome Jack - Borderlands
Complete bastard, just someone you love to hate.

13Flood - Halo
Awesome villans and they're zombies how awesome is that. In Halo 4 the flood are terrifiying. I'm just glad they made them look and sound scary instead of just making them spartans with energy swords like in Reach.
relentless KILL ALL LIVING BEINGS attitude
Very deadly. Way harder to kill than bowser.
More comments about Flood - Halo

14Bowser Jr. - The Mario Franchise
Bowser Junior is way better than his dad. his dad should be second. Bowser Junior ahould be number one. Bowser Junior is the one laughing in your face for the entire adventure ever since Super Mario Sunshine, not Bowser! Bowser is just there to steal away the final boss basttle!


15Kefka Palazzo - Final Fantasy VI

16Super Dimento - Super Paper Mario

17Fawful - Mario and Luigi Series
Five Reasons To Vote For Fawful:

5. He is better than the main villain of his franchise, who is number one on this countdown.

18Porky - Earthbound
He was Pretty twisted for a kid with no super natral powers, but he ended up cuasing much havic.
I hate this guy so much, he manipulated ness, killed Lucas's mom and brother and caused wreak havoc on the whole WORLD

19King Dedede - The Kirby Franchise
Dedede is my favourite video game character ever, and sorry, he's not a villain, he's just a mischievous king. My favourite video game villain is Ganondorf


20Ganon - The Legend of Zelda Franchise

21Dr. Nefarious - Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal
Dr. Nefarious is probably the only villain who is so bad that he will make you roll on the floor laughing your head off. And that's a good thing.
One of the funniest villians ever! He is
My favourite character from Ratchet and Clank series

22Raul Menendez - Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

23Psycho Mantis - Metal Gear Solid

24Petey Pirahna - The Mario Franchise

25Dormin - Shadow of the Colossus

This guy is the ultamate villan

30Mike Tyson - Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

32Liquid Snake - Metal Gear Solid
dude seriously! your evil twin-clone-brother who is the antithesis of your very existence, and then there was the showdown at the end of metal gear solid 4
Why is he this low?

33General Shepherd - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
No one can trust him even his own men

34Lavos - Chrono Trigger

35Team Galactic - Pokemon

36Marx Soul - Kirby Super Star Ultra
One of the hardest bosses on a nintend game. His face alone can scare small children

37Kurt Dierker - The Saboteur

38Mecha Hitler - Wolfenstein 3D

39Dracula - Castlevania Franchise

40Carlo Falcone - Mafia II
Carlo Falcone is a ruthless double crossing mobster. Of course he's more villainous than some mutant turtle crybaby.

41Tokai - Red Steel

42Jacqueline Natla - Tomb Raider

43Brian O'Neill - Mafia II

44Gruntilda - Banjo-Kazooie Franchise

45Sovereign - Mass Effect
This dude/machine set out to destroy all organic life. Big deal, makarov shot up an airport, sovereign ass raped entire fleets and planets

46Giygas - Earthbound

It's SO disturbing. On it's final stage you can fetuses in the background, so really you are fighting it during an abortion. Urgh...

Giygas is practically the epitome of evil. He is everything that evil stands for and was able to destroy an entire planet with a single thought. He deserves to at least be in the top 5.

47Rudolf Ulbricht Von Sturmgeist - Medal of Honor: Frontline

48Lev Kravchenko - Call of Duty Black Ops

49Alberto Clemente - Mafia II

One of two ruthless, double crossing mobsters. The other is Carlo Falcone.

50Goro - Mortal Kombat
This four armed beast proved to be more frustrating to fight than any other boss character in any fight game.


51Mileena - Mortal Kombat Franchise

Mileena is bad ass. She is unique fighter. Mileena should be in the top 10. She is the most evil female character in mortal kombat history.


52Shang Tsung - Mortal Kombat Franchise

53Friedrich Steiner - Call of Duty Black Ops

54Frank Tenpenny - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

55Majora - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

56Magus - Chrono Trigger

57Ares - God of War Franchise

58Cyrus - Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum
Not like the rest of the criminal team leaders. This guy actually want to bring about the apocalypse and re-establish space-time and make a world with no emotions under his own rule.

59Admiral Razorbeard - Rayman 2: The Great Escape

60Tabuu - Super Smash Bros. Brawl

61Ender Dragon - Minecraft

62Sigma - Mega Man X
Everything this guy did is just unacceptable. In my opinion he deserves to be #1.

63Ghirahim - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
This guy is just the perfect zelda villian.
Ghirahim fills my heart with rainbows! But there is only one thing that I lack... Namely mercy meeh *tongue thing* no I'll just beat you within an inch of your life! A little boy like you knows nothing of magic! I don't care if you lot get stabbed by the end of his sword I just need you to buy me sometime to complete the ritual to revive the demon king! I have prepared a most appropiate and humiliating death for you boy

64Mileena - Mortal Kombat Series

65Loghain - Dragon Age: Origins

66Sander Cohen - BioShock

67Kerrigan - Starcraft

68Miraak - The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn

70Zant - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
He is just insane...

71Maero - Saints Row 2

72Dahaka - Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

73Big Smoke - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

74Zoran Lazarevic - Uncharted 2
One of the most difficult bosses I've ever fighted!

75Magolor - Kirby's Return to Dream Land
He acts all nice to Kirby at the beginning, but once you APPEARENTLY beat the game, he betrays you and starts the most epic boss battle EVER!

76Count Bleck - Super Paper Mario
We know the story between him and Tippi. Blumiere and Timpani, who were Bleck and Tippi respectively, are lovers. But they separated because of altering dimensions. We thought Count Bleck is the antagonist of Super Paper, but this villain had a change of heart when he realizes Dimentio wants the Chaos Heart for Himself. Count Bleck, one of my favorite villains of the Mario franchise, should be high.

78Dark Link - Legend of Zelda Series

79Demise - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

80Galacta Knight - Kirby Series

81Bokoblin - Legend of Zelda Series
