He has been running amok in Gravity Falls, Oregon since being summoned by Stanford Pines over thirty years ago. He is known for his mysterious demeanor and sadistic humor. He ...read more.

He is both hilarious AND absolutely terrifying, often at the same time. He is absolutely powerful. We always love when he's on screen and consistently want more of him but also can't wait until he's defeated. You always feel his presence, even before he's introduced in the show, and you know he could be watching at any time. He actually ends the world, and always seems threatening through the whole thing. A damn near perfect villain

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when

Remember, reality us an illusion the universe is a hologram buy gold BYE

He's the best villain EVER. We stan a legend

2 Aku (Samurai Jack) Aku (Samurai Jack) Aku is a fictional character and the main antagonist of Samurai Jack, an American animated television series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network.

Love his laugh and voice rip mako.

Aku is number 1

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, 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.

Aku is the most evil demonic tyrant EVER EXIST!

He is so evil that he can atake the teen titans from beyond the grave

Threatening though plots and physiological manipulation. Still utterly terrifying when he was only human.

He was so diablolical! An absolutely scary villian!

He is pretty bad if you ask me, and always a step ahead. He is even able to 1) see through Robin's plot to be a fake villain and 2) force Robin to be an apprentice. He also gets some cool powers, and shows himself up to evil incarnate during season 4.

I vote for Discord and Swiper the Fox (Who's not on this list. Sometimes, I would like to "thank" him for stealing Dora's stuff! ) - PoohFanBronyCareBear2001

Discord is much better than any other cartoon villain like the lich & Ice King from Adventure Time, Discord has more personality and more character development than those two, he should be higher than the lich

He's much better than the Ice King and the Lich from Adventure Time

39 Lord Hater (Wander Over Yonder)
40 Him (The Powerpuff Girls)

BEST VILLAIN EVER, LGBTQ COMUNITY SHOULD USE HIM AS A SYMBOL! HE IS AWESOME

41 Professor Pericles (Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated)

He really was proven to be a major threat towards the gang. He even murders people... in a kid's show.

42 Twilight Sparkle (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) Twilight Sparkle (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) Twilight Sparkle is the primary main character of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She is a female unicorn pony who transforms into an Alicorn and becomes a princess in Magical Mystery Cure.

Twilight is a good-doer...And how is she on this list? - PoohFanBronyCareBear2001

The worst villain of them all, jesus, just the thought of her and her purpleness terrifies me

Umm how is this a villain she was the only one to actually fight lord tirek before rescuing the rest of the mane 6 to beat him with the "nagic of friend ship" so even though it's a great charicter twilight is not a villain

Villain...?

43 Claude Frollo (The Hunchback of Norte Dame) Claude Frollo (The Hunchback of Norte Dame)

He manipulated and verbally abused his kidnapped son, Quasimodo, burned down huge buildings, groped Esmeralda and attempted to burn her for being a gypsy and "witchcraft"! All in the "name of god"! Ironically, at the end of the movie, he falls into the pits of hell! That's what I call a villain!

A realistic Disney villain. That makes him more threatening than the sorcerers and witches that plague most Disney movies, because we know there are some real people like him. He is also very similar to Sweeney Todd's villain Judge Turpin, right down to lusting after a teenage girl.

He is the most despicable animated human being ever.

44 Lord Tirek (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) Lord Tirek (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)

Out of all the MLP villains, this guy I think is the best! He's smart, charismatic and will destroy anyone or anything in his path.

Wait Satan is in MLP?

45 Evil Morty (Rick and Morty)

He should be in a higher place in the ranking

46 White Diamond (Steven Universe)

Horrible, despicable narcissist.

47 Varian (Tangled: The Series) Varian (Tangled: The Series)
48 Vilgax (Ben 10) Vilgax (Ben 10) Vilgax is a fictional character and one of the main antagonists of the American animated TV series and media franchise Ben 10 created by Man of Action Studios and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

YOU'RE MAKING A MISTAKE BEN TENNYSON, DON'T MESS WITH VILGAX, THE VICTOR!...

49 Shego (Kim Possible) Shego (Kim Possible) Shego is a fictional character from Disney's animated television series Kim Possible, voiced by Nicole Sullivan.

What's the Switch? (PlayStation 2) had a 2-player mode where you not only play as Kim Possible but Shego as well. - playstationfan66

50 Ren Hoek (Ren & Stimpy) Ren Hoek (Ren & Stimpy)

A psychotic maniac who beats stimpy, wanting to murder someone.
