Best Cartoon Network Villains
The Top Ten
So over-the-top! He is fun to watch. Can be a comedic villain in one episode, and a pure evil nightmare in another!
He fought the old gods and nearly ruled the Universe. After his initial defeat, he landed on Earth and proceeded to kill humans for centuries before he conquered the planet. He sent the only man who could stop him, Jack (after enslaving his people), into the future to witness what centuries of suffering looks like under his rule. He has unlimited power, strength, and knowledge, yet still gets pleasure from seeing others, especially Jack, fail. Did I mention is literally the physical manifestation of Evil? Black, takes all shapes and sizes, and he shoots laser beams from his fiery eyes. Is this even a competition?
With titles like "Deliverer of Darkness" and "Master of Masters" Aku is undoubtedly evil. Said to be nothing but pure evil he's ruled the world for thousands of years and enslaved countless peoples. He's even sent off captives to the Pit of Hate or to spend their lives in slave labor. he's an utterly foul being comprised of pure evil but despite that his ability to also provide comic relief makes him likeable.
The only villain ever that could defeat Aku is bill cipher, and he's not on Cartoon network...
Mojo Jojo is all I like an archenemy to be. Menacing, Badass, intelligent, wise, cunning, mysterious, dominant, misanthropic, funny, competent and sophisticated. He's got eyes of revenge, against the Powerpuff Girls, and would do anything to stop them.
Another trait I like about Mojo Jojo is that he also uses good manners, even around the people he hates (unless they get to piss him off).
He is very diabolical and quite evil indeed. Clearly by the evidence shown in his evil objectives and evil actions he is quite a BAD MONKEY and is VERY EVIL!
Mojo yearns just to be evil. And as a "thorn in the City of Townsville" side he's in, Mojo is more severely thwarted, bested and embarassed by his hero counterpart. Lest we forget, his hero counterpart is a trio of preschoolers. Mojo Jojo is Craig McCracken's love letter to super villains, and we see that echoes in many of the schemes that Mojo's pulled, from gathering all the baddies to form a league of supervillains, to reverse-engineering the Powerpuff DNA, and making evil twins for the girls. It is Mojo's belief in being evil, that makes him such an awesome villain.
Holy Crap This Guy Is Evil! This Monkey Has Done TONS OF BAD STUFF! He Is Also Very Smart, Sadistic, No Remorse, And All Of His Actions Are Dome With Malice. Mojo Jojo Is Awesome And He Is My Favorite PPG Character Of All Time.
Easily my favourite version of Deathstroke. He is ruthless, manipulative and absolutely deranged.
Evil. This villain is the embodiment of evil. He has alluded the Teen titans for so long I don't think they can touch him. Evil to the core without one regret. Slade deserves to be the number one Cartoon Network villIn.
He's the definition of evil.

Smooth, suave, and evil. Plus he has the best theme song by far of any villain.
Suave, psychotic, evil. What's not to love?

Seriously, this villain was absolutely awesome and badass, so sleek, a sleeker villain won't exist in cartoon network history at least.
He is the greatest villain that the kids next door ever had to face
This guy is mean and ruthless and after him my number 2 would be Him form the Powerpuff Girls
Father is just ruthless. Watch his first appearance. Father is the first villain who ever defeated the KND and turned his children into animals.
He is underrated
Him is number 1 definitely just watch tough love
How is Mojo jojo above Him? Him is awesome!
Needs to be number one!
Number 14 needs to be 1,2, or 3
"Good" villains have some sort of redeeming quality or perhaps some reasoning behind their actions.
There's a purpose behind their villainous deeds, so while the actions of the villain are... villainous, their INTENTIONS are good (at least at first).
Some classic examples:
Darth Vader = goes to the Dark Side... to try to save his wife.
Lex Luthor = is a sociopath and a psychopath... but he honestly thinks everything he does is for the greater good.
The Illusive Man = xenophobic (to an extreme) and hinders Commander Shepard... all in a bid to save humanity from extinction and ensure humanity's progress in the galaxy.
So while we know they're the bad guys, we can find a grain of heroism in who they are.
Not so with The Beast.
He is only thinking of himself, he has no grand plans, and he DOES NOT CARE how his actions affect others.
He is unfettered, unprincipled, and apathetic unless it concerns his own well-being.
The only villain to come ...more
How is The Beast so low! In my top ten Cartoon Network/ Disney Cartoon villains he was number 6!
Very sinister. He traps children's souls in trees, for cry it out loud!
Darkest devil, living in the deepest of valleys...THE BEAST
The Lich, simply put, is the twisted manifestation of the raw lack of existence that originated before nothingness itself. He is not an agent of death, but the End incarnate. He is not merciless; he simply knows not mercy. Upon examining the Lich from an non-subjective standpoint, the utter fear and hopelessness it induces on those that stand in its gruesome path forces the primary protagonists to undergo some of the most strenuous character development ever portrayed on an animated series, even leading the audience to challenge their own perception of reality. Whilst it is a shame that the Beast has not attained a higher position on this list, I firmly believe that the Lich ought to be considered to be the most vicious and unrelenting antagonist to have ever graced the face of modern television, or, at the very least, the "Best Villain" ever conceived by Cartoon Network.
The Lich is extinction incarnate. He does not want money, power, or too play mind games with the hero. He has one goal too end all life everywhere in any form. You can not stop him, you can only temporarily subdue him until he comes back and every time he comes back he's all the more dangerous.
Truly the most incredible villain I have seen in any cartoon. I looked up this page just to see his name at the top. I'm incredibly surprised that it isn't already. Composed of pure evil, created only to end all life in the universe, he's more than just your typical world-domination madman.
Epic villain. A true force of serious, sincere, pure evil who will stop at nothing to destroy the world. A better villain than the Ice King.
Admin, we got ourselves the wrong Nergal here!

While I agree with the idea that aku is the most well known except for possibly slade, xana was a better villain than ALL of them.
His Suttle manipulations are more interesting then the typical world domination archetype.
He was also relentless and didn't let his enemies live, as he was the only one on this list who actually killed someone, in XANA's case, Franz Hopper
What about team rocket
The best.Everything about him
Voiced by Steve Blum, James Remar, and Yuri Lowenthal
They're not villains per se but they definitely harass the Eds to the point that they can be scary.
I think that the Kanker sisters are the best Cartoon Network villain because unlike other villains, who want to take over the world and fail, they are successful when it comes to their goal, torturing the other children of the Cul De Sac
I hate the Kanker sisters!

Namely going off of Ego Trip, but Mandark stole Dexter's idea's, banned all technology, and was blown up only leaving his brain behind. Of course there is also his laugh.

Iconic and somewhat beguiling. One of the few true antagonists.
Voiced by Rachel Wilson
He is the best villain in any cartoon series ever with Amon and the Beast being close second and third. His mysterious past, cunning, and the fact that he is voiced by Troy Baker make him all the more amazing. It is dissappointing more people have not seen this awesome show.
Voiced by Troy Baker
He has the best villain theme in all CN
AAH! It's a Giant Bearded Face! Makes me laugh every time.

Argost has quite a style to him, making him fun to watch. Also, he remains a threat to the heroes throughout the show.
Also, he's a Yeti.
Most hilarious and adorable villain ever!

I told you I built better dog! Y you NO GIVE UP?!
Voiced by Tim Chi Ly
Honestly a better villain than the diamonds. They fight the protagonists to further their strict empire, and other antagonists such as Eyeball or Jasper fight to avenge what they, at the time, believed was the death of Pink Diamond.
Aquamarine, however, even though she is serving Homeworld I doing so, seems to be so cruel because she enjoys it, and even takes joy out of abusing her companions, Topaz and Topaz.
She is more sadistic, cruel, selfish, and angering than any other character (let's put Rose Quartz aside for now) that we've seen on the show.
I'd definitely call her the best antagonist of Steven Universe, and she deserves at least top 15.
She's cruel, ruthless and sadistic.
