Top 10 Most Brutal Disney Villain Deaths

Though Disney movies are mostly family friendly they do tend to kill off the main villian in the most brutal and gruesome ways possible.

The Top Ten

1 Clayton - Tarzan Clayton - Tarzan

Still can't believe that they showed something this disturbing in a DISNEY movie. - phillysports

Death by hanging, if only Clayton had no been so aggressive and carelessly he would have noticed the vine wrapping tightly around his neck he probobly would have survived this confrontation with Tarzan. - egnomac

Why is this NOT on number one? I mean, death by hanging in a DISNEY MOVIE! Wow. Just.. wow. That's even a death penalty from reality. How disturbing.

Even more amazing is the movie was rated G it should at least have a PG rating. - egnomac

2 Ursula - The Little Mermaid Ursula - The Little Mermaid Ursula is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated feature film The Little Mermaid.

Poor, poor Ursula. Ariel kills her only friends (the eels) and then she has complete control over the ocean and dies by A BOAT! Gosh, it's like Disney didn't respect their coolest villain at all! You could've at least let her eels live. - Patty_C

Ursula is not a villain, she is a princess. Please, take her off of this list. - olliv

Ariel deserved this death way more than Ursula - MegaSoulhero

Clayton's death was by hanging himself and snapping his neck and we saw the shadow. That was so scary.
Scar was mauled alive by the hyenas which was honestly a very disturbing scene.
Queen Grimhilde fell to her demise and maybe the boulder killed her. Plus to add insult to injury, the vultures eat her.
Ursula's death is the most brutal, scariest and likely to give nightmares. She was impaled by a boat, struck by lightning and to add insult, they showed her remains. - EJ0602

3 Syndrome - The Incredibles Syndrome - The Incredibles Syndrome (born as Buddy Pine) is the primary antagonist in The Incredibles. He wanted to be super like the others, even though he had no powers. He was Mr. Incredible's #1 fan, and dubbed himself "Incrediboy," but he was rejected by Mr. Incredible. Angered after being refused, he developed an evil plan more.

Dude literally got shredded by a jet engine. I guess that's what you get for committing genocide on an entire group of people. - phillysports

To Quote Edna Mode "No Capes". - egnomac

More comedic than scary. Why is this in second place?! - olliv

NO CAPES! - GeorgeTheNin10doGamer

4 Dr. Faciler - Princess and the Frog Dr. Faciler - Princess and the Frog

This death was really over-the-top for a Disney film compared to the others (besides Syndrome getting sucked in by a jet engine. That was pretty brutal). I don't think any other Disney villain has been literally dragged into Hell. - Mcgillacuddy

Let's get this one to first place. This is definitely one of the scariest deaths of a Disney villain. He is dragged into hell by demons and his gravestone is very creepy looking. Dr. Facilier's death is way worse than Ursula's. - olliv

He went to Hell in the end! - Cartoonfan202

5 Claude Frollo - Hunchback of Notre Dame Claude Frollo - Hunchback of Notre Dame

He must definitely die like this. That movie is WAY too violent for young kids to view it could traumatize them for all eternity that's why I voted.

Disney really likes falling deaths, don't they? - phillysports

This is probably my favorite Disney death - MegaSoulhero

It was like he fell into hell

6 Scar - The Lion King Scar - The Lion King Scar is the main antagonist of Disney's 1994 animated feature film, The Lion King. He was the second son of Ahadi and Uru — who were, at one time, King and Queen of the Pride Lands — the younger brother of Mufasa, and the uncle of Simba.

He backstabs everyone, he kills his brother, manipulates his nephew, brings down all the species and throws the hyenas under the bus. He died by being devoured to death. Honestly, one very scary and disturbing scene. - EJ0602

It was kinda...disturbing - TwilightKitsune

Scar survives the battle with Simba but waiting for him are the Hyenas not happy with Scar throwing them under the bus and theu gather together to devour him. - egnomac

This death was absolutely brutal. Why is it so low on the list?

7 The Queen - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs The Queen - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

If the fall didn't kill her certainty the giant boulder falling on top of her would finish her off. - egnomac

8 Sykes - Oliver & Company Sykes - Oliver & Company

Death by Train, as Sykes is fighting off Oliver and Dodger he turns around just in time to be struck down flames and all by the train. - egnomac

9 McLeach - The Rescuers Down Under McLeach - The Rescuers Down Under

Death by waterfall, while busy fighting off the crocodiles McLeach fails to notice the waterfall behind him Joanna waves one last goodbye as Mcleach desperately tries to get to safety but goes over waterfall to his death. - egnomac

10 Hopper - A Bugs Life Hopper - A Bugs Life

Death by eaten by birds, Flick outsmarts Hopper luring him to the birds nest and be feed to the babie birds as Hopper frantically screams for his life before bieng devored. - egnomac

I'm MELTING! - Mcgillacuddy

12 Shere Khan - The Jungle Book
13 Director Orson Krennic - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Director Orson Krennic - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

What I love most about his death is that he was killed by his own project, his own creation

He literally gets struck by the strongest weapon in cinematic history.

14 Horned King - The Black Cauldron Horned King - The Black Cauldron
15 Alexander Pierce - Captain America: The Winter Soldier
