Top 10 Most Brutal Disney Villain Deaths

egnomac
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

Dang this one is brutal it truly deserves first place and you can even see him hanging in a shadow 😖

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.

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

Ariel deserved this death way more than Ursula - MegaSoulhero

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

My poor evil sea queen!

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 ...read more.

Gets chopped into pieces then blows up.

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

4 Claude Frollo - Hunchback of Notre Dame Claude Frollo - Hunchback of Notre Dame

Dude fell into molten metal. Is pretty brutal when you think about it. That’s gotta be extremely painful.

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

Awesomely brutal.

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

This wins for most colorful Disney Villain death too.

I agree this is very scary. But not very brutal. Don't go off topic

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

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.

It's brutal all right, but he had it coming

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

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

Definitely scary. - asantalo

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

I never liked this guy, in fact I hate this guy and seeing him get what was coming to him, makes me want to stand up and cheer.

Disney is a Super Very Extremely Really Underrated movie & villain because he crashed into a subway train

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

Falls over a waterfall to his death. Joanna did the smart thing and crawled onto a rock. He thought the crocodiles were swimming away from him and actually they were swimming away from the waterfall.

I just love the way that jonna just waved goodbye to that moron. "Look out for the waterfall you idiot! " is what I think she was trying to say.

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

In the remake he dies by falling into fire. - egnomac

13 Judge Doom - Who Framed Roger Rabbit Judge Doom - Who Framed Roger Rabbit

I love this movie, but there are two things I what to improve(1) Judge doom's death is just a cheap knock off of the wicked witch of the west(2) I'd like to see smarty, psycho, and the other weasels survive the fight.
