Top 10 Best Avatar: The Last Airbender Villains

Villains from Avatar the Last Airbender who make life difficult for and and friends this includes characters who were bad at one point and then turned good.
The Top Ten
1 Azula Princess Azula is a fictional character and antagonist of Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Azula was the perfect villain. She was cunning, ruthless, scary, inspiring, slinky, skilled, and absolutely awesome. I loved seeing how instead of her going down dramatically as her closure, they made her fall apart. We FELT for her and her relationships with her friends and mother and everyone else trying to help her, her feeling betrayed and losing trust in everything, eventually snapping, despite her being a villain. The way she said and did everything just gives you chills, and she's only fourteen! THAT'S how you construct a villain people

I love Azula as a villain. Seriously, even though Ozai is inarguably the big bad guy of the whole series, somehow his 14 year old daughter manages to be ten times as menacing as he could ever be. And while she is clearly a horrible evil person, she is also a very human character. This is best shown on ember island when she states that "My own mother thought I was a monster. She was right, but it still hurt." I love this line because it perfecly sums Azula up as a character who is pure evil, yet insecure at the same time.

No one comes close.
She was a pure sociopath from the moment we meet her. She is strong, but not overpowered. She's responsible for most of the trouble for team Avatar, and she came up with Ozai's final plan.
To top it off, she was also a very human character, as shown in the Beach episode and how she had a psychotic break at the end.

She was strong enough to be a threat to everyone, but not to make them look weak. She was cunning, dangerous, cold and aloof. She had great scenes of humor, and every time she appeared, everything got personal, unlike with Ozai. In the end, she had amazing development, even more so than Zuko.

2 Fire Lord Ozai

LOL this description was written by someone who voted him

The big badass villian built up big time and didn't fail to be a truely evil person.

3 Zuko Prince Zuko is a fictional character in Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Zuko is a master firebender and his younger sister is Azula . He is the son of Prince Ozai and Princess Ursa .

People always say "Zuko was never the villain" and I always get mad at that. No he was the villain all the way up to The Day Of Black Sun. Now, "Villain" doesn't have to mean "Bad Guy", it just means that he is the antagonist for the protagonist. Zuko wasn't a bad guy, he was conflicted and sad, and just wanted to get back what he lost, but he was still the enemy of the main character none the less.

I adore Zuko! Even from the very beginning, I'd seen that he was really just a damaged soul. The way he grows and changes really shows that people aren't always good or evil. Or that people are not doomed to be only good or evil because of their ancestors. I think that reflect real life better, because being bad doesn't mean one cannot change for the better

He was only a villain at first. Then he became good. Zuko's an awesome character, but he doesn't belong on this list.

My favourite will always be Zuko out of this list. I mean he is AMAZING! Don't you agree?

Sparky Sparky boom man!

5 Ty Lee Ty-Lee is a fictional character appearing in the Nickelodeon animated TV show "Avatar: The Last Airbender" voiced by Olivia Hack.

She was a backstabbing charmer with a giggly personality and gymnastic skills that defied the laws of gravity. But still, she had a back story and a full character, making her a joy to watch and root for!

She at least turned from villain to ally by turning against Azula along with Mai late in the 3rd Season.

Should be way higher, his story is interesting and he started it all, and impacted the benders for 100 years.

She's a sympathetic character, her story and bloodbending are some of the darkest aspects of the show. And it's chilling how she found such satisfaction in unlocking this twisted power within an innocent girl

She invented the dark art of blood bending giving her the ability to control others..
