Best Cartoon Network Villains
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.
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.
The most creepiest guy ever, He's definitely not like your average cartoon villain.
" If you join me, If you swear to serve me, If you never speak to your friends again... I will allow them to live. But, if you disobey even the smallest request... I will annihilate them, robin. And I'll make you watch. "
Easily my favourite version of Deathstroke. He is ruthless, manipulative and absolutely deranged.
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.
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).

Seriously, this villain was absolutely awesome and badass, so sleek, a sleeker villain won't exist in cartoon network history at least.
Smooth, suave, and evil. Plus he has the best theme song by far of any villain.
Suave, psychotic, evil. What's not to love?
Father is just ruthless. Watch his first appearance. Father is the first villain who ever defeated the KND and turned his children into animals.
This guy is mean and ruthless and after him my number 2 would be Him form the Powerpuff Girls
He is the greatest villain that the kids next door ever had to face
What about team rocket
I really think he was more powerful than any of the other villains. CN did a great job on him.
How is Mojo jojo above Him? Him is awesome!
Goddammit that guy fascinates yet creeps me out. Great villan, probably the only that has creeped me out.
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
"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 close to this kind of evil is the Joker (the Joker at least has a "theme" to his villainy, as horrendous as it is.)
That... thing, gave me chills when I first saw it, and I don't know if I'll ever see another villain quite like The Beast for a long time.
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 prototype Slenderman of Cartoon Network that can be funny, hysterical, badass, and just fun to watch! And his son, Nergal Jr., is interesting to watch as well.
Admin, we got ourselves the wrong Nergal here!
That picture though
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
They're not villains per se but they definitely harass the Eds to the point that they can be scary.
I hate the Kanker sisters!
Voiced by Keith Szarabajka in his first appearance, after that he's voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson
Iconic and somewhat beguiling. One of the few true antagonists.
AAH! It's a Giant Bearded Face! Makes me laugh every time.
I'am the leader of the most powerful droid army this galaxy has ever seen!
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.
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.
Amazing evil counterparts.
Brick just brick
Amazing he is sensational! I can't believe he is really bad and evil but it turns out he is good at the end and saves gumball
He's just awesome, the greatest character in this entire series!
This should be higher. Because I think he was one of the complex villain out there
Man this guy really wants an ice queen so obviously he was a nice man before a nuclear war the destroyed the war.
