Top Ten Video Game Villians

The Top TenXW

1Bowser - The Mario Franchise

Bowser described in a nutshell, is the Darth Vader of video games. His look, his role in the Mario universe, sure he's always doing the same thing, kidnapping Princess Peach in order to controll the Mushroom Kingdom, but his rivalry with the iconic protagonist only makes him an even better character. If you ever mention video game villains, Bowser is usually the first to come to mind.

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

Bowser is a better villain. He almost became the ruler of every galaxy EVER if Mario didn't stop him. All gandondorf did was take over hyrule

He's the most badass cartoon video game character, also

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

One time he got stabbed and lived. I think he is immortal considering that he spanned generations (OoT Link to TP, WW, and Zelda 2 Link).

His theme is bad-ass.

3The Joker - Batman: Arkham City

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? - DamonRageDevil

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.

I like the Joker and all, but I don't think it would be fair to call him a video game villain. Probably a comic book villain or something of that nature.

Should be on top of the list, he is a psycho

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.

Sigh. GLaDOS should be #1. She's funny, psychopathic, and while usually sadistic, she does have a degree of humanity in her, although if you told her that, she'd kill you with a deadly neurotoxin.

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.

She is very evil in other way

5Eggman - The Sonic Franchise

I shall always remember Death egg robot, metal sonic, and omega

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
9Albert 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

Oh, Wesker... Master of the cobra strike, tiger uppercut, and pretty much any attack named after an animal. WHY DIDN'T YOU APPEAR IN RESI 6? Was RESI 5 your demise? Resident Evil will NOT be the same without you.

11Vaas 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.

This dude taught me the definition of insanity - the_only_sane_person_alive

On 10 th no. Are I kidding

12Ridley - Metroid Franchise
13Handsome Jack - Borderlands

This guy mocks you every step of the way, hilarious, and everything he does makes you want to kill him. His origin as a Hero turned Villain is excellent. He's hilarious, unpredictable, thinks he's the hero the entire time and mocks you by calling you the "bad guy" (SERIOUSLY! ), and does a lot of terrible things including killing off certain people whom I won't say who they are! He's in my top 5, for sure!

A man who truly believes he is the hero all the while caging and forcing his daughter to help wake a monster to commit mass genocide and when you finally kill him, he still haunting Pandora as an A.I. what a great villain.

Also sticks around with you the whole game and just loves to mock you and threaten you in the end you get sweet sweet revenge.

14Bowser Jr. - The Mario Franchise

In Mario Galaxy 2, Bowser Jr. Has these huge machines designed to kill you. I think that the Doomsday Machine is his best one.

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

15Super Dimento - Super Paper Mario
16Kefka Palazzo - Final Fantasy VI

He destroys part of the Earth AND became a god. Much better than others FF villains, especially Exdeath.

He's the first game villain(besides of Mephiles) how SUCCEDS IN SOMETHING.
He destroys the ENTIRE WORLD. - CastlevaniaFanboy128

17Vladmir 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

He has made a massacre come on!

18Ghirahim - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward SwordV2 Comments
19Ganon - The Legend of Zelda Franchise

He's on the list twice? Wow. He's that good?

He is so good he had to be on the list twice. Number 2 and Number 18.

20Flood - Halo

When it comes to villainy, it's hard to beat the flood. But on another note, Ganondorf and even Eggman are WAY better villains than Bowser!

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.
