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 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

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

He says some of my favorite quotes ever, my favorite being, "is funny how dumb you are." whenever Bill comes on we all subconsciously say "oh boy this is gonna be a good episode! "

Bill cipher is powerful fastest 'strongest and Unstoppable
bill can't be kill

2 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.

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.

Literally only all the good and justice of the world can kill him, that is a true villain weakness.

I think aku is evil and funny all at the same time

Aku is the most evil demonic tyrant EVER EXIST!

3 Skeletor (Masters of the Universe) Skeletor is a fictional character and the main antagonist of the Masters of the Universe franchise created by Mattel.

4 Megatron (Transformers) Megatron is a character from the Transformers franchise, created by Hasbro in 1984, based on a toy design by Takara.

He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is more.

I’ve always thought that Frieza looked like Mewtwo a little bit

Anime and Cartoons are not the same thing.

Why is he not number 1 what the hell

Mewtwo's new design looks great!

6 Shredder (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) Oroku "The Shredder" Saki is a fictional character in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and all of its related media.

This is the best list I have seen yet it has Slade and Bill Cipher on it.

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

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.

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

8 Magneto (X-Men) Magneto is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

He used to be friends with Professor X, but had a rift with him after fighting Baron Strucker, "proving" humans were evil.

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

Q dragon
Say hello to Q dragon

She is very evil but I hate puppies and almost every cute thing you can think of so I don’t really care if she makes clothes out of puppies

Wants make a fur cout out of cute puppies

42 Bass (Mega Man)
43 Set (Tutenstein)
44 Vexus (My Life as a Teenage Robot)
45 Riff Raff (Underdog)
46 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.

47 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.

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


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

50 Evil Morty (Rick and Morty)

He should be in a higher place in the ranking
