The Top Ten

1
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

thelolster

He's not really a villain I mean he's just so easy to beat and follows the same routine

2Ganondorf - The Zelda Franchise
he never dies even with a sword stabbed in his heart or head ude
till "killing" him rocks
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
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
Bowser, Ganondorf, etc. are fine, but they're boring. They're just generic "I'm the bad guy who wants to take over the world" villains. GlaDOS is so much more. Out of these villains, she's the most interesting because despite her being a robot, she's the most human. She has motivations for her actions, but they're different than "I want to take over the world". Her character is complex, sometimes she hates the player, other times she is amused by the player, other times you can even catch a bit of sympathy. Her character has a level of depth unmatched by the generic "TAKE OVER THE WORLD! " villains that plague video games today.
Now, this artificial intelligence discovered to like killing people. And so she does with her test subjects. You, the protagonist, have the bad luck to be one of them.
How are you holding up, because I'm a potato! -GlaDOS Evil, yet humorous villain, gave me a good time, knowing the villain wasn't PURE evil. I think she's biased against escapees to the moon. Dunno.

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.

6Andrew 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.

7Sephiroth - 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

8Dr. Wily - Mega Man
Beware of Goo from Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends!

GOO IS THE UGLY BLACK GIRL!

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.
Not only is Wesker an original villain but also the coolest due to the fact he's in control of the virus in a way and the sunglasses add on to it
The best villains of all time

The Contenders

11Super Dimento - Super Paper Mario

12Vladmir 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".

mom4

[Newest]He has made a massacre come on!

13Handsome Jack - Borderlands
Complete bastard, just someone you love to hate.

14Flood - 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.

15Kefka Palazzo - Final Fantasy VI
Actually did what every other villain tried to do
He destroys part of the Earth AND became a god. Much better than others FF villains, especially Exdeath.

16Bowser Jr. - The Mario Franchise
Why is Bowser Jr here? He's just a whiny brat with an utterly annoying voice.
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!

HeavyDonkeyKong


17Fawful - Mario and Luigi Series
HE's GOT CHORTLES AND FURY!
He wants to take over the world. Big deal. If only that were all to this villain. This is THE funniest character in history. Period. Just listen to these lines.

"Snack on my wrath, fink-rats! "

"You inhaled like the hungry syrup pig at the all you can eat pancake buffet."

"All who resist will be beaten like naughty little eggs."

"The mustard of your DOOM! "

"I have chortles! "

"I HAVE FURY! "

He's much more than just memorable lines, too. He's a genius, and, like Gruntilda, a green cackling b*tch of a chatterbox. He gave Cackletta the power to live on. Inside Bowser... With boobs...

He found the Dark Star and almost destroyed the mushroom kingdom with it. HE NEEDS TO COME BACK! Come on, he's survived exploding. TWICE!

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

19Dr. 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
"LAAWREENCE! "

20Ganon - The Legend of Zelda Franchise
He's on the list twice? Wow. He's that good?

21Vaas Montenegro - Far Cry 3
This guy is so awesome! He should be at top 10
Vaas was the best villain in any game... the first time I played FarCry 3 the begging was a twist. I thought it was real but it was Vaas showing me a video. If Vaas was real, I think he would be about the same as Hitler in evil.
An absolutely insane character, no doubt the greatest villain from any videogame.

22King 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

Nintendonix

He can just flick Bowser on SSBB, He may be cute, but an epic villain, even though he's an anti hero.

Mewbosses


23Raul Menendez - Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

24Psycho Mantis - Metal Gear Solid

25Petey Pirahna - The Mario Franchise

31Lavos - Chrono Trigger

One of the hardest bosses on a nintend game. His face alone can scare small children

34Mecha Hitler - Wolfenstein 3D

35Dracula - Castlevania Franchise

36Tokai - Red Steel

37Liquid 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
I love Metal Gear Solid because of the great game play and storylines and every boss in the series is memorable
Why is he this low?

38Jacqueline Natla - Tomb Raider

39Gruntilda - Banjo-Kazooie Franchise

40Sovereign - 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

41Rudolf Ulbricht Von Sturmgeist - Medal of Honor: Frontline

42Giygas - Earthbound
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.
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...

43Goro - Mortal Kombat
This four armed beast proved to be more frustrating to fight than any other boss character in any fight game.

44Frank Tenpenny - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

45Shang Tsung - Mortal Kombat Franchise

46Mileena - 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.

Magnolia

I love mileena she is my number 1 favorite villain of all time she is the best female character in Mk and I hope they bring her back for Mk x take that green scorpion

47General Shepherd - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
No one can trust him even his own men

48Majora - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

49Ghirahim - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
This guy is just the perfect zelda villian.

50Hades - Kid Icarus Uprising

51Alberto Clemente - Mafia II
One of two ruthless, double crossing mobsters. The other is Carlo Falcone.

52Nikita Dragovich - Call of Duty Black Ops

53Magus - Chrono Trigger

54Ares - God of War Franchise

55Cyrus - 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.

56Admiral Razorbeard - Rayman 2: The Great Escape

57Kerrigan - Starcraft

58Tabuu - Super Smash Bros. Brawl

59Ender Dragon - Minecraft

60Sigma - Mega Man X
Everything this guy did is just unacceptable. In my opinion he deserves to be #1.

61Mephiles the Dark - Sonic the Hedgehog
The reason I like Mephiles is that he was an amazing villain in a game full of bland characters.
Why the hell is he so low?! He is the best villain ever (in my opinion)!
He is a demon and he killed sonic.

62Kurt Dierker - The Saboteur

63Carlo Falcone - Mafia II
Carlo Falcone is a ruthless double crossing mobster. Of course he's more villainous than some mutant turtle crybaby.

64Mileena - Mortal Kombat Series

65Loghain - Dragon Age: Origins

66Sander Cohen - BioShock

67Miraak - The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn

68The Covenant - Halo Franchise

69Zant - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The definition of madness.

70Maero - Saints Row 2

71Dahaka - Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

72Big Smoke - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

73Zoran Lazarevic - Uncharted 2
One of the most difficult bosses I've ever fighted!

74Magolor - 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!
He's a villain damn it and I haven't finished the game yet

75Count 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.

76Creeper - Minecraft

77Dark Link - Legend of Zelda Series

78Demise - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

79Galacta Knight - Kirby Series

80Bokoblin - Legend of Zelda Series

81Deku Baba - Legend of Zelda Series
Why is the deku Baba here? In fact, why is the deku Baba above mephelis?
The deku Baba is just an enemy that easily be killed in 2 or 3 sword hits.

82Antasma - Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

83Yuga - The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

84Xehanort - Kingdom Hearts

85Alex Mercer - Prototype Series

86Yellow 13 - Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies

87The Illusive Man - Mass Effect 2 & 3
The Illusive Man starts as an extremist with good intentions (sorta). But over the course of Mass Effect 3, he slowly descends into madness as he becomes indoctrinated. By the end, he's crazy but still thinks he's doing what's right, but you can convince him of the truth long enough to shoot himself. He's a great villain of the "evil boss" variety (you never actually fight him).

88Vergil - Devil May Cry

89Cheese - Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion XL

90Yami - Okami

91The Professor - Conker: Live and Reloaded

92Megatron - Transformers Series

I just love his theme and the fact he is both a doctor and a zombie.

95Hoyt Volker - Far Cry 3

96Jeremy Irons - Call of Duty Advanced Warfare

97Rorke - Call of Duty Ghosts
