The Top Ten
1 The Lich - Adventure Time The Lich (formerly named the Lich King in the original pitch and "His Hero," and referred to as Sweet Pig Trunks in his baby form, or just Sweet P for short) is a powerful undead being and a major antagonist in the American animated series Adventure Time.

Okay, he's a really creepy guy. I mean, just look at him. Also, he's a somewhat atypical villain who wants to murder a few people or take over some territory. The Lich wants to destroy any form of life, nothing more, nothing less. A master manipulator, extremely powerful, dark, scary, sadistic, almost unstoppable, and purely evil. Easily one of the best modern villains.

Unlike other villains who either want to take over the world or the universe, The Lich wants to end everything created.

He has no soul. His only purpose in life is to end all life on Earth. What's more evil than that?

2 Frieza - Dragon Ball Z Freeza (Pronounced "Frieza" in the Funimation dub) is fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama as the primary antagonist of the Freeza Saga. He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is the series's most personal and significant antagonist, being responsible for many of the series' events,... read more

He spearheaded an entire genocide to gain immortality, tortured Vegeta to death, killed Krillin right in front of Goku, and then attempted to kill Gohan right in front of Goku. In the Resurrection 'F' movie, he executes his entire army after they are defeated.

Frieza is the most evil character ever! Twice as evil as the evilest! He would kill a child with no mercy!

3 Bill Cipher - Gravity Falls Bill Cipher is a triangular dream demon formerly existent only in the mindscape who wished to gain access to the real world. He has been running amok in Gravity Falls, Oregon since being summoned by Stanford Pines over thirty years ago. He is known for his mysterious demeanor and sadistic humor. He is the main antagonist of Gravity Falls, although he doesn't play a central role in the series until... read more

He is terrifying, yet lovable. If you were a random person who knew nothing about this cute-looking character, he is a definite wolf in sheep's clothing. From the first episode he appears in, Dreamscapers, he will charm you with his humor and basic awesomeness. But as the show progresses, the more drawn you become. This one character casts the same spell as FNAF. Once you enter the fandom, you can't get out.

Now, you may be sitting here reading or skipping past this, thinking, Why are these people so terrified of a Dorito dollar bill chip-like creature?! Watch Dreamscapers, Sock Opera, Mabel and Dipper VS the Future, and then, you might be ready for the three episodes of Weirdmageddon, which come right after Mabel and Dipper VS the Future. Although, you probably won't understand the plot, at least you will get a good idea of how Bill Cipher is truly, a character we hate to love. The mere idea of him getting into my head sends shivers down my spine.

4 Sosuke Aizen - Bleach Sosuke Aizen is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.
5 HIM - The Powerpuff Girls

Is it weird that this guy's my favorite character?

Really creepy, man.

7 Vilgax - Ben 10 Vilgax is a fictional character and one of the main antagonists of the American animated TV series and media franchise Ben 10 created by Man of Action Studios and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

The look is a Cthulhu rip-off.

He is the main antagonist of the Android Saga, being an android/artificial life form from the future, whose goal is to become "perfect" via absorbing Androids 17 and 18 and becoming the strongest fighter in the universe.

Stole the powers of Androids 17 and 18 and can launch Goku's Kamehameha. Needs to be number 1 on this list.

9 Father - Codename: Kids Next Door
10 Vlad Plasmius - Danny Phantom Vladimir "Vlad" Masters (also known as Vlad Plasmius) is the main antagonist from the American animated series Danny Phantom created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.
