Top 10 Disney Villains We Liked Better than the Hero

The Top Ten
1 Hades

Hades is the best. My brother dressed up as him last year on Halloween. "I haven't been this choked up since I got a hunk of Misaka caught in my throat! Ha?!"

Hades is by far the funniest Disney villain of all time. Even though he's miserable about his life, he has a sense of humor. Even when he's terrorizing people, he never fails to make us laugh.

Hades is a comical hothead from Hercules , with a wonderful sense of humor , that really makes me laugh ! Hades is so hilarious in Hercules .

Don't ask why I don't know why but I like Hades better then Hercules whether it's Greek Mythology or a movie and I'm not saying Hercules is bad or anything he's not he's one of my favorite gods but I just prefer Hades over Hercules (and no that doesn't mean that Hades is my favorite cause that title belongs to the one and only Poseidon lol)

2 Maleficent Maleficent is the main antagonist of Disney's 1959 animated feature film Sleeping Beauty. An evil fairy, Maleficent is an incarnation of pure evil, and is responsible for all misfortune in King Stefan's kingdom.

The 2014 movie really puts things in perspective. Spydyr, it is never actually proven that she was evil and placed curses before the movie or that she killed people. It could have been a case of discrimination for all you know! Shame on you.

If you weren't invited to a party you would feel bitter too. Like Scar, Maleficent carries out a successful scheme and even almost wins. Her 2014 live action movie adds a backstory that adds great qualities to her character.

I think she is way better than philip.

Of course, it’s hard to not like Maleficent better than Aurora.

3 Captain Hook Captain James Hook is a fictional character, the antagonist of J. M. Barrie's play Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up and its various adaptations, in which he is Peter Pan's archenemy.

Did ya'll know that Peter Pan was originally supposed to be the villain. Also, in the movie, he acts like a cocky ass, and in the book he acts the same way but worse, steals other people's ideas, and it's even implied that he kills the children when they grow up.

You would be mad too if someone cut off your hand, fed it to the crocodile, and torments you every chance he gets. Peter Pan is a brat and kind of a jerk, even to the people he likes.

Ok, let's face it, almost ALL OF DISNEY'S VILLANS ARE WAY COOLER THAT THE PROTAGONISTS! Captain Hook has been my favorite Peter Pan character since I first saw the movie when I was like 5. Captain Hook, Scar, and Gaston are just awesome villains, but really funny too. I can't really agree with Randall from Monsters Inc. being here because Mike Wazowski is better a better character, but it's close.

"SMEE SAVE ME TREASURE!" "I'LL GET YOU PETER PAN IF IT IS THE LAST THING I DO!" Captain hook is a scaredy captain but I love his character design

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

Ursula literally warns Ariel of the consequences of becoming a human, not that Ariel seemed to care. Ursula never lied to Ariel once. She's also of the sassiest Disney villains in Disney history.

Ursula is so amazing , so wonderful in the Little Mermaid , Ursula has theme song poor unfortunate souls [ which happens to be my favorite song] Ursula had warned Ariel about being a human , that she three days to tell prince Eric she loves him before sunset ! I really like Pat Carrol as Ursula very much , I think Ursula is the coolest with a great sense of humor

ursula isn't really a villain.prpomises are promises. she warned ariel. ariel was the villain. she was stubborn and only wanted to see a handsome face. so what? I know tonsof cute boys yet all of them are like murderers

Ursula never really lied to Ariel, It was Ariel who didn't care about the consequences of becoming a human.

5 Dr. Facilier

Dr Facilier wasn’t evil. Price Naveen was a spoiled little brat and he decided to teach him a lesson. They should be GRATEFUL. And it was naveen not facilier who convinced Tiana to kiss Naveen so he could turn into a human again (SPOILER: it doesn’t work thank god). His methods may have been... questionable but he had a good mind in the grand scheme of things

If I got adopted by doctor facilier I would be extremely happy plus he did not really lie.

If he had a kid I bet he would be loving

I liked dr. facilier, he had some good songs to.

6 Scar 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.

Yes I hate disney villains and sometimes the songs they make just get to me and I can't stop sining along. I love how scar has so much feeling when he sings "Be prepared". Whenever this song comes on disney's radio I sing like there's no tomorrow! Scar was also very successful ruling the pride lands for many years. Scar's evil happened (watch the first episode of Lion Guard season 3 to see how) was when he was leader of the lion guard there was this lion in the outlands. At first scar trusted him but then, a snake came out of knowhere and scared his face then he killed the lion and when he came back and showed he killed the lion mufasa just laughed and nicknamed him scar. That's how he wanted his revenge on mufasa and killed him along with the fact he wanted to be king. Scar is my all time favorite villain and he shouldn't be killed by fire/hyenas. He should have gotten a really bad punishment instead of being killed. RIP Scar.

Scar is one of a few villains who plans and carries out a successful scheme. While he did kill Mufasa, his sarcasm and ability to deliver sinister lines in a hypnotic tone make him one of the best villains in Disney history. And he has arguably the catchiest villain song in Disney history.

Best villain ever. He set into motion a perfect, flawless and airtight plan. Not to mention he got the whole pride to follow him at least for awhile.

I disagree, I was rooting for Simba on that one. Scar killed his own brother out of jealousy, and tried to kill his nephew.

7 Professor Ratigan

Professor Ratigan is mad evil his death was deserved

8 Yzma Yzma is the royal adviser of Emperor Kuzco in 'The Emperor's New Groove'. She is also a mad potions master and after being fired by Kuzco, she tries to use her potions to get rid of him and instate herself as empress.

I've never actually seem The Emperor's New Groove, but I hear she delivers some of the funniest lines and also has a funny sidekick so I had to put her on here.

Honestly probably one of my favorite Disney villains.

At the start of the movie, Kuzco wasn't a nice person by any means.

I thought her and Kronk were hilarious. Kuzco is kind of an egotistical douche.

9 Jafar Jafar is the main antagonist of Disney's 31st full length animated feature film Aladdin. Jafar is introduced as the sinister Royal Vizier to Agrabah's Sultan who desires power over Agrabah.

He like scar after him had a perfect flawless plan that worked perfectly well. he just made ONE slight error and a Street rat capitolized on it

He worked hard to get to where he is, but the local thief tears it all away. There is a rumor that Jafar is actually the good guy. Also, Aladdin lied his way to Jasmine's heart soooo.

He's a lot more likeable than Aladdin

He was messed up but I like him

10 Claude Frollo

Ask anyone who's watched the movie if they liked Frollo better than Quasimodo... Every sane person would say they definitely liked Quasimodo over Frollo. LIKE WHY WOULD YOU LIKE THIS DUDE... unless your an insane religious person with a twisted sense of morality you wouldn't like him. Although I do have to say he is a great villain, one of the best in movie history

So evil so good

The Newcomers

? Carnotaurus (Dinosaur)
? Kron (Dinosaur)
The Contenders
11 Chernabog Chernabog is a Disney villain from the 1940s film Fantasia, and in his segment, "A Night on Bald Mountain".

I don’t even see how he’s a bad guy, sure he looks scary (Aren’t movies supposed to show how the way you look doesn’t matter )but literally all he does is play with ghosts.

He's getting a movie in 2025

Needs to be number 1

12 Horned King

Alright - this guy was awesome, just awesome.
Everything a villain should be.

Hmm a little inte'resting

13 Gaston Gaston is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast.

He might be egotistical and narcissistic, but he knows how to rally the village behind him. Belle, the girl he wants, has been kidnapped by the Beast, so he fights for what he loves which is a great quality. That of course didn't go very well.

Gaston, from his point of view, is a man who's love of his life’s been kidnapped. When he sees the kidnapper, he tries to kill the beast. - AnimalsLover

An epic villain. he tried so much to get the girl he wanted and she kept turning him down, so in an ultimate act of Huberus he messed up and went after Beast only to plummet to his doom.

How could you not love Gaston?

14 Syndrome 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.

Think about it. All he wanted as a kid was for Mr. Incredible, who was his idol, to notice him, but Mr. Incredible set him aside. He show us that even the smallest person can rescue themselves.

Love the story here , rejected by his hero so he became the enemy.

He is a clumsy vill- I mean hero. As he calls himself

If Syndrome got away with Jack Jack
S: alright bust down mr.incredible!
JJ: * uses all of his powers and spits at Syndrome *
S: alright I’m taking you back

15 Mother Gothel Mother Gothel is the main antagonist of Disney's 2010 animated feature film, Tangled. She is a wicked crone who retained youth for hundreds of years through the healing properties of a magic, golden flower.

If Gothel was actually Rapunzel’s mom:
Flynn: nice to meet you...
Gothel: you better not hurt her!
Rapunzel: mom no killing.
Gothel alright flower.

she's actually a good mother. she only kept her in the tower she didn't harm her or anything. besides , I'm sure everyone would want to get revenge if someone stole there stuff so she's not really a mean villain

Was a basic mother in law to Flynn

She is honestly the coolest

16 Prince John

Prince John is actually one of my favorite villains, but he's not in the Top 5 because I like the other Robin Hood characters just the same. His immaturity and cowardly personality are what make him one of the funniest villains in Disney in what is in my opinion the most underrated Disney film. Just look at that image and it should be obvious that he's easily defeated.

Prince John the Lion has great sense of humor that makes me laugh when watch the cartoon Robin Hood one minute he is mean next minute he is hilarious , and he is the comical villain

Such a hilarious villain. you just say "prince John" I start cracking up and singing "The phony king of england"

17 Randall Boggs Randall Boggs is a Pixar villain from both Monsters Inc and its prequel, Monsters University. He is voiced by Steve Buscemi, and has a reptilian appearance, with purple and blue scales and green eyes.

Randall can change color like a chameleon Randall was like a chameleon sometime and plus he can change color just like one and I like it

waaaaaay better than Wazowski or Sullivan. please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks that Randall is Monsters Inc's best character.

Trying to kill a 2 year old? This is a role model!

I just like that he can change color

18 Edgar Balthazar

If there ever was a cool Villain type for me it would be the subtle snake of a villain like Edgar here. No one believed Edgar would try to hurt those kittens. it took a bunch of alley cats to show it.

I would try to get rid of those cats too. He worked his butt off for years and got nothing in return.

Yes, I hated that lady, what kind of person leaves all their money to cats?

19 Evil Queen

She’s much better than Snow White.

I hate snow’s annoying voice!

20 Oogie Boogie

I don't know why but I've always loved him

21 Clayton
22 Ernesto de la Cruz

Good looking, smart, famous. Why is he the bad guy?

Um he killed somebody...

of corse you now he is a villan he tryed to kill coco (I forgot the boys name)

his name is miguel

23 Shan Yu Shan Yu is the main antagonist of Disney's 1998 animated feature film, Mulan. He is the evil leader of the Hun Army.

I believe they're removing MUSHU from the live action! this is disappointing.

24 Evelyn Deavor

Me: Can I punch you?
Evelyn: No
Me: Fine then I will go get elastigirl to save me from you.
Evelyn:How hard did you want to punch me?

Of she becomes evil because her parents died. UNDERSTANDABLE HAVE A GREAT

shes kinda hot-

her face is so punchable.

25 Hopper

Hopper makes a great villain. He's evil, manipulative, ruthless and just about everything else that defines a villain. It's terrifying though when he meets his demise when he's eaten by birds.

When I was a little girl I used ot be o scared of when he jumped on the bug I never really liked this villan but It brings back memories.

he's so evil I love it
