Best Animated Movie Villains
The Top Ten
Born by the greatest company of animation, lived and died with the voice of the awesome Jeremy Irons.
Inspired by Hitler, history's most evil human.
Without magical powers, he destroyed almost an entire continent. No other Disney villain has done that before.
Even for a lion, Scar shown to have more human cruelty than any other villain.
He also made the most crying moment of Disney history, Mufasa's death.
He even sang the greatest villain song, about killing his own brother and his nephew. That's even more sick than Claude Frollo
I LOVE SCAR! There, I said it. Isn't it funny how I want to stab Simba while I love Scar? Definitely the best villain ever, second only to the Gremlins from Gremlins 1 and 2. - RedTheGremlin
He killed his own brother to conquer his kingdom and attempted to kill his nephew more than once. - PeeledBanana
Yes, he is the best. He's cunning, cruel, and not afraid to condemn little cubs to a lifetime of guilt.V 4 Comments
Not only voiced by Gary Oldman, this guy is a classy bastard. That thing he does with the throwing knives in his tail is effing amazing to see. Plus, unlike Tai Lung, who was understandably pissed because of what Oogway and Shifu did to him, Shen was pretty much evil through and through, while still being an elaborate character who had his reasons to do what he did - crappy, selfish reasons, but still. He in fact does remind me a bit of Scar from The Lion King, maybe because of his class, his swag or his lust for power (the fact that he looks cool as hell doesn't hurt either); doesn't matter, he's still probably my favorite animated villain ever.
He's the most cunning, skilled, stylish and resourceful villain there is.
Most evil animated villain ever! Good thing that the climax resulted in his death. He's THAT vicious.

As a Christian frollo in my opinion is the most evil villain, for he does so many evil things in the name of the lord. And he dies by falling into hell! (I think, that's what they made it look like) with no powers, and the fact that he's an old man makes his evil more impressive. He lusts for, and gropes Esmeralda at one point, keeps Quasimodo prisoner for all his life, just because he's ugly, and burns innocent families house down for no reason, other than that he was slightly annoyed! Frollo is my all time favorite Disney villain, and he is no doubt the most evil
21, how is Judge Claude Frollo only number 21. He is PURE EVIL, he burns people alive, lust after younger women, murders people and he is only number 21.
Where do I even begin with this guy? He kills an innocent woman, tries to drown her baby, locks him in a tower, lusts over women, plans to burn them alive, offers their freedom for bow chicka bow wow, and burns whole villages...all while claiming to be and I quote, "a righteous man" and "so much purer than the common vulgar weakling" DAMN!
I like him, but I think he offends the Lord. - RedTheGremlinV 5 Comments
How is he not on the list? He rips of flesh on camera.
Which sharptooth there's a million sharp teeth!
This thing is scary... That's it he's is so #@$%&! ing scary!
Just full of anger in range! EPIC! IN MY OPINION! - HeavyDonkeyKongV 2 Comments
This is the funniest guy ever!
He's also one of the gods in mythology in Greece. But the Disney version looks so sofisticated compared to the original story of Greek gods and other adaptations besides Disney.
I love this character. - RedTheGremlin
Not only is he based on my most favorite animal, he is also a villain whose overbearing pride prevented him from being good. His lust for more power clouded his mind, and was willing to kill even his own master and foster father to achieve his goal. He deserved more screen time then he had.
A very complex character that deserves to return in a sequel to the franchise. I feel like he can be a hero again despite of his past deeds. Still, I would love to see him return and learn more from this amazing character.V 2 Comments
He might smell sweet but he's a rotten strawberry! I never thought I'd see the day I hated a teddy bear...
Forced his former best friends, chuckles and Big Baby, to serve him, had any toy who disobeyed him killed, and was a downright tyrant.
Downright Diabolical - JPK
HEY! Where is Captain Chantel Dubois from Madagascar 3! She is one of the best villains! - VictoryboyV 1 Comment
This guy is mad with power and overall sadistic. He's smart he's funny, and really underrated. I mean the place is over polluted by homers pig crap silo, so quarantine the town if you must but don't trap the people, and when the place gets worse and worse, and soon Springfield gets driven into an apocalypse, so what does he do? He plans to blow it up with a nuclear bomb! And when Bart and homer save the town, he still wants them to die, by pointing a shotgun at them.. But his defeat was pretty pathetic by just getting a rock dropped on him by a toddler, but still not a bad villain for the Simpsons first movie.
A corrupt head of the Environmental Protection Agency who's power went to his head, only to fall for one of Bart's crank call names (the treasure of Ima Weiner) and a toddler named Maggie.
He's practically Donald Trump 10 years before Trump was even president.
The same voice actor who did Hank Scorpio
Isn't he like the devil?
LeFou, I'm afraid I've been thinking... (A dangerous pastime) I know...but that wacky old coot is Belle's father and his sanity's only so-so...
How is Maleficent so far down on the list? She was the best Disney villain of all time. That new movie must have ruined her. In her original film, she cursed a baby because she wasn't invited to a party!
Oh, yes. The scene where she appears in the fireplace scared me as a little kid and became my favorite part to this day! - RedTheGremlin
My second favorite Disney villain, I put here above scar even!
She's just evil, so evil I almost love her. She is upset about her villainous mate's death and cannot see clearly. She trains Kovu to avenge her beloved Scar.
Honestly, Zira's pretty evil.
I love her - RedTheGremlin
BEST Disney VILLAIN IN MY BOOK, should be in the top 5. He is evil, powerful, and also funny. Why is he not higher on this list
LOSER! And he looks like he's a thousand years old!
Ok really number 11 Jafar? No he should be number one! He's so hilarious and sarcastic and he is so cute in his robe with black and red on him aw he's so cute
One eye is one of the worst villains of all time like Lord voldemort from Harry Potter and indominus Rex from Jurassic world. And I know he's gone for good by being eaten by tylosaurus in the ocean where SpongeBob and finding nemo live.
Syndrome is a perfect combination of smart, funny, menacing, and nerdy just the best villain in an animated movie
While Wallace and his silent companion Gromit ran a humane pest control business, Lord Quartermaine and his pitbull were a little more ruthless. - Bender0
A hunter with old fashioned tactics involving pest control with a small pitbull for a sidekick. - Dale
JERK! "If I can't have your money, I can still bag your bunny! " I still laugh at that part!
Fun Fact: His Voice Also Played Voldemort - JPKV 2 Comments
Villain in the sense that Metro man was a superhero and for once the supervillain triumphed.
My favorite Dreamworks character ever - RedTheGremlin
This guy gives me the creeps!
As Hilarious he is, Megamind shouldn't count as a villian. He is more of a Anti-HeroV 2 Comments
