Top 10 Most Evil Pixar Villains

This list is a list of the most evil Pixar villains of all time.
The Top Ten
1 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

Syndrome is by far the darkest and most evil Pixar villain. He killed hundreds of former superheroes (and just think how evil it is to kill just one person) and was later willing to kill even children. Hopper and Lotso are not even close to Syndrome, that monster.

The guy is an absolute psycho. Because one of his idols rejected him, he created several inventions and practically exterminated superheroes. He's at his absolute worst when he attempts to kill Bob's family, knowing fully that his children would die too. And after he seemingly killed them, he taunted Bob for being weak for feeling sad. That's just messed up.

2 Lotso (Toy Story 3) Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear ("Lotso" for short) is the main antagonist of Toy Story 3. He takes over Sunny Side Day Care and makes all the other toys work for him.

He did lots of bad things to innocent toys who had nothing to do with him being a lost toy.

He literally still refused to save Andy's toys in the landfill after Woody and Buzz saved him.

Lotso is by far the most evil villain in the Toy Story series with no redeeming qualities, in contrast to Sid and Stinky Pete.

Sid gives up his torturing of toys and grows up to be a garbage man. Stinky Pete enjoys being doodled by his new owner, Amy.

Lotso displays no redeeming qualities at all, making him more evil than both of them combined.

3 Hopper (A Bug's Life)

Hopper is such a perfectly terrifying villain. Early shots of him are always filmed from a low angle. His design is incredible. Watch the movie and look at the way he moves his arms, walks, and blinks. Every act he takes is done with the intent to impose fear on those around him.

He makes Atta feel small, stupid, and insignificant by talking down to her, subtly imposing physical dominance, and threatening her when necessary. The grasshoppers flying sound like a helicopter raid, and that's no coincidence. His motivation stems from fear of uprising and what he believes to be a need to keep the lower class in line. He is a ruthless and realistic dictator.

4 Ernesto de la Cruz (Coco)

This "musician" is quite arguably the Pixar definition of a fraud and the most recent example of a Broken Pedestal. Ernesto was once Hector's business partner and friend when Hector left his family to become a musician. However, when Hector began to miss his family and wished to return home, Ernesto tricked Hector into death by giving him food poisoning through a toast. The worst part? Not only did he murder his best friend, he also tricked people into thinking Hector choked on a chorizo. He stole Hector's guitar and songs to gain fame, and let's not forget he almost made Miguel fall to his death in the Land of the Dead.

All I can say is that I rejoiced like everyone in the crowd when he got exposed, died by the bell a second time, and was left to be hated forever. FORGET YOU.

5 Randall Boggs (Monsters, Inc.) 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 definitely deserves votes. He is seen as the ultimate evil in both Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University. This guy deserves votes!

Started off as Mike's best friend, then betrayed him by joining the "cool" kids without a second thought. Then, he lost to Sulley in the finals and just because the "cool" kids abandoned him, he develops a hatred for Sulley and Mike. In Monsters, Inc., he even wants to kill them.

He is willing to torture an innocent child for his own amusement.

This guy terrified me as a child and still does today. When I first saw him, I slept with my mom and dad for a week. God knows what else.

In Kingdom Hearts, he's much worse considering how he wants negativity. And it doesn't matter if a child cries. He feeds on it because it's delicious to him. If I ever see him in my closet, I'm getting a shovel and will beat the heck out of him.

6 Henry J. Waternoose III (Monsters, Inc.)

Waternoose gets #4 since he only wants to keep his company from sinking.

He's really creepy and looks like a crab spider monster.

He is so creepy and likes kidnapping children.

7 Charles F. Muntz (Up)

Charles Muntz should be way higher. He attempted to kill a child (Russell), set Carl's house on fire, and possibly murdered people in the past due to the mysterious helmets. He uses an army of vicious dogs to do his bidding and uses both a sword and firearm to try to kill our protagonists.

He is also one of the most intimidating, with that dinner scene alone. If all that is not evil enough to crack the top five, then I don't know how you define evil.

Muntz was one of the worst and scariest Pixar villains due to how realistic he was. Plus, he almost murdered a child, intended to burn down Carl's house, and, not to mention, had a firearm at the end!


Some may think that Auto is not truly a villain because he is only following his directive A 113 and thus cannot be responsible for his actions. But there is one scene to take into account here.

After the Captain argues with Auto that they have to go back to Earth, he looks behind him and notices something: the portraits of all the captains of The Axiom. In them, Auto was originally in the background, but as each Captain succeeded, he comes closer and closer until he is no longer behind, but next to the present Captain.

Just like Wall-E and Eve, he developed a personality and a desire to be more in control than his base program. The directive A 113 is only an excuse for him so that things stay the way they are, with him in full control of the ship.

I even suspect that he is responsible for how unfit all the humans are on the ship, making them even more dependent on the robots. It's a slow work to make them lazier until they forget that they can even walk.

Auto is a true villain, one that I find more evil than others by his slow grip on power and control.

9 The Screenslaver (Incredibles 2)

Evelyn is the second-best villain in the Incredibles franchise and is the third darkest Pixar villain! She brainwashed Elastigirl and many other supers, including her brother. She also framed the pizza guy, Screenslaver, for those crimes.

I would put her at 5 instead of 9, but 9 is okay. I will give you reasons why she should be higher. She used superheroes as weapons to ban them. She used a ship to try to kill everyone on board, and she almost destroyed a building. Thank goodness for Frozone. Without him, she would have succeeded. She is a terrorist.

10 Chick Hicks (Cars)

Chick can actually be the best cheater, as he uses his tricks on all racers, while others only use them on the protagonist.

The Contenders
11 Sid Phillips (Toy Story) Sid Phillips is a fictional character in the Toy Story franchise. He serves as the primary antagonist of the original Toy Story film.

Sid was already on the road to becoming a killer. Seeing the toys come to life probably pushed him into this.

This kid is diabolical! He tortures innocent toys! What else can I say!?

12 Professor Zundapp (Cars 2)

Zundapp should definitely be on this list, not stupid Darla. Unlike him, Darla is not malevolent. She's just a normal spoiled little girl who wants a fish as a prize. But Zundapp murders cars and tries to extirpate the World Grand Prix. This villain deserves a top 7 spot.

Professor Z is an evil, greedy, ruthless, devious, intelligent, and mad German scientist. He has his hench cars (the dimwits) with him. He killed and blew up the American spy car (Rod Torque Redline) by using the secret weapon (electromagnetic pulse camera).

He wants to kill Finn McMissile and Holley Shiftwell (the expert spies) and he also wants to kill Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater. But unfortunately, he is not the main villain. He's the second villain.

13 Stinky Pete (Toy Story 2) Stinky Pete, also known as The Prospector, is a fictional character in the Toy Story universe. He serves as a primary antagonist in Toy Story 2 (1999) and is voiced by Kelsey Grammer.
14 Miles Axlerod (Cars 2)

When Miles Axlerod sold off his fortune, converted himself into an electric vehicle, and devoted his life to finding renewable energy, he created the racing competition (World Grand Prix) just so he could fool and trick people by using alternative fuel (Allinol).

His supposed "alternative fuel" was actually gasoline engineered to expand and eventually explode if hit with an electromagnetic pulse. It was part of a plot to turn the world against alternative energy and have them rely on gasoline, bringing profits to the lemons and himself, as they owned the largest untapped oil reserves in the world. Miles Axlerod is the most evil main villain and planned all of this.

15 Mor'du (Brave)

Why is this guy below Darla, Sid, Auto, and Chick Hicks? This guy has murdered hundreds, if not thousands. This is definitely number 2. Number 1 is Syndrome, not number 16.

If you look at the definition, then this guy is the definition of evil! He deserves votes!

Mor'du is a terrifying monster! He deserves the #6 spot!

16 Thunderclap (The Good Dinosaur)

He is a true mastermind and wicked enough to do anything to stay alive. He is also insane.

17 Emperor Zurg (Toy Story 2)

My favorite villain of all time. Better than Darth Vader. Better than Dark Laser. Better than Man Ray. You can't compete with him.

Zurg easily deserves the #7 spot for not only attempting to murder Buzz but, in the future Lightyear, murdering future Sox!

Zurg deserves a top 6 spot for his similarity to Darth Vader and his plan to kill Buzz Lightyear.

18 Darla Sherman (Finding Nemo)

The picture of her used to scare the hell out of me when I was little.

19 Skinner (Ratatouille)

My favorite Pixar villain. Syndrome is definitely a better villain, but he's no match for Chef Skinner in the comedy department.

Painfully underrated. He may not be the best, but he straight up looks like an evil version of Gordon Ramsay! Scrub that - he IS an evil version of Gordon Ramsay! He definitely deserves more love.

He's hilarious, cruel, and just power-hungry. Sure, a rat stealing your job can make you go crazy, but this guy doesn't know that this rat has dreams too! Seriously, Skinner deserves to be noticed more.

20 The Underminer (The Incredibles)

This ranking is underrated! He is a criminal who endangered the city to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars.

21 Dr. Phillip Sherman (Finding Nemo)
22 Grem (Cars 2)

This ranking is underrated! This guy had a smile when he killed someone. Maybe he was taking orders, but when given the opportunity to be good, he turned it down almost instantly.

He killed Leland Turbo by crushing him into a compacted red metal cube and showed Professor Zundapp.

23 Jangles The Clown (Inside Out)
24 The Barracuda (Finding Nemo)

The Barracuda is a minor antagonist who killed Marlin's wife, Coral, and their 399 other children. As he appears to the reef, he sees Coral and Marlin. Marlin tries to help Coral when she rushes to protect her eggs, but the barracuda knocks Marlin unconscious and gobbles up Coral and her eggs, except one that later becomes Nemo.

Not evil, Just predator instincts for the species.

25 Health Inspector (Ratatouille)

He is not a villain and he did not deserve to be tied up, plus why is he higher than skinner?!
