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 for revenge. Despite not having any super powers, he is extremely intelligent and creates state-of-the-art gadgets that he uses throughout the film.

Killing A lot of supers, trying to attack Metroville by launching Omnidroid V.10 and tries to be a superhero, destroyed a private jet, and tortured mr. Incredible.

Syndrome is by far the darkest and most evil pixar villain, because he killed hundreds of former super heroes (and just think how evil it is to kill just one person) and was later willing to kill even children. So 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 superheros. He's at his absolute worst when he attempts to Bob's family, knowing fully that his children would die too. And after he seemily killed them, he taunted Bob for being weak for feeling sad. That's just messed up...

This guy wanted to be Mr. Incredibles side kick but Mr. Incredible did not want him to. So what happens? Buddy becomes syndrome kind of like anakin becoming Vader. He kills off hundreds of supers and by that lures the incredible family.

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 worse than Syndrome if you ask me. Mr Incredible had some degree of responsiblity for what Syndrome became, even though Syndrome was just being petty.

What did Andy's toys ever do to Lotso? Nothing. That's what I think makes him worse.

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.

Yup, this guys pure evil to me. Why does he treat other toys horribly like that? I was very happy when I saw him tied to the front of the car. In my head I was like 'Let's hope someone accidently back up into the front of the car, that way he can get what he deserves, and feel what all those other toys felt.'

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 at 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.

Hopper is a tyrant who wants to run the kingdom for good! He gives the ants one last chance to get him a great offering to benefit him and his army, but mainly him. As the movie progresses, he gets impatient and decides to sabotage their kingdom by trying to make the ants his slaves, especially Atta and Flik. By doing these things, Hopper is implying he is an obvious dictator with no compassion for others, not even his allies. He is way more dominant than all the ants since he is a giant grasshopper and uses fear and manipulation as his main strengths.

Hopper represents the capitalist class of the real world, aka the rulers who want to keep us, the proletariat, down. A Bug's Life was an amazing socialist commentary and the scene where the ants stuffed Hopper into a cannon was reminiscent of when the French peasants guillotined the decadent French monarchs who lived lavishly and stole the fruits of the French peasants' labour. His death made me sad because I really liked him but it also sends an important message that the only way to deal with the bourgeoisie/government is to kill them.

Best pixar villain quote ever:
"You let one ant stand up to us and they ALL might stand up. Those puny little ants outnumber us a hundred to one. And if they ever figure that out, there goes our way of life! It's not about food, it's about keeping those ants in line. That's why we're going back! Anybody else want to stay?

4 Ernesto de la Cruz (Coco)

This "musician" is quite arguably the Pixar definition of a fraud. And the most recent example of 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 and died by the bell a second time and left to be hated forever. FORGET YOU.

Narcissistic murderer that killed Hector by poisoning his tequila, all poor Hector wanted to do was go back to his wife and daughter. Ernesto stole Hectors guitar and music. Thank goodness the Riveras in the land of the dead exposed that bully on camera..

Ernesto should be number 1. He killed Hector, stole his songs, and tried to make sure he is forgotten in the living world. He even tried to literally kill Miguel.

All the villains above him didn't murder anybody. Some of them were close to doing it, like Lotso, but this fraud actually murdered someone.

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.

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 of the "cool" kids abandoning him, he develops a hatred for Sulley and Mike and in Monsters Inc., he even wants to kill them.

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

As a kid I always saw this guy as the most evil Pixar villain because he wanted to be number one and tried to cheat and kidnapp children to achieve this. He only has care and respect for himself, and his defeat is one of the best in movie history.

This guy terrified me as a child and still does today. When I first saw him, I slept with mom and dad for a week and god knows what else. In Kingdom Hearts, he's much more 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. >:(

Randall is somewhat the most creepy monster in Monsters, Inc. (2001) for his ability to camouflage! He might be in your bed, he might be in your closet, or he might in the toilet while you're taking a shower! You just don't know

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

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

He is so creepy and liked kidnapping children.

Proof that capitalism is bad for humanity.

Child kidnapper, When I first saw this movie when it came out on DVD I was a bit scared

7 Charles F. Muntz (Up)

Charles Muntz should be way higher. He attempted to kill a child (Russell), set Carl's house on fire, possibly murdered people in the past due to the mysterious helmets, uses an army of viscious 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 this guy was. Plus, he almost murdered a child, intended to burn down Carl's house, and, not to mention, that he has a firearm at the end!

This guy is a evil old man and he has a huge team of dogs to do his dirty work for him.

It's so realistic that it's scary...


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 argue with Auto that they have to go back to Earth, he looks behind him and notice something ; the portraits of all the captains of The Axiom. In them, Auto was originally in the background, but as each Captain succeed, he comes closer and closer, until he is not anymore behind, but next to the present Captain.
Just like Wall-E and Eve, he developped a personnality, 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 Full ship.
Hell, I even suspect that he is responsable for how fitless all humans are on the ship, making them even more dependable toward the robots. A slow work to make them more and more lazy until they forgot that they even can ...more

This robot is the head mastermind of the work robots and does not want to go back to earth. He wants to kill all living things besides humans.

Deceiving captains for years, he's cold, calculating, and willing to kill to finish his programmed mission.

He is basically half terminator half auto pilot what more can you ask in an Pixar villain!

9 The Screenslaver (Incredibles 2)

Evelyn is the second best villain in the Incredibles franchise and is the 3rd most darkest Pixar villain! She had brainwashed Elastigirl and many other supers, including her brother. She also had framed Screenslaver, the pizza guy, for those crimes.

I would put her at 5 instead of 9 but 9 is okay but I will give you reasons why she should be higher. She used superhero's as weapons to ban them, she used a ship to kill everyone in the ship and the building she almost destroyed, thank goodness for Frozone without him she would have succeeded. she is a terroist

Her name is not Screen Slaver she is the mastermind behind it her name is Evelyn and the Pizza guy was screen Slaver not her.

Evelyn is so good to hide herself as Screenslaver.

10 Chick Hicks (Cars)

Chick actually can be the best cheater as he uses for all racers but other uses it only with the protagonist only.

He's just a Dale Earnhardt. Dale DID crashed and intimidated the others, right?

What about Jackson storm

Jackson storm is worse

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 had no way of knowing that the toys were alive until the end of the movie so he can't actually be a true villain. And I think he was more misunderstood than evil. He didn't seem to have the best parents or home life, didn't seem to have friends, and had an overactive imagination. I think he had a better side to him even though it didn't really show and he does change after the first movie.

Sid didn't know that the toys he tortured were alive. I like to believe that he ended up feeling guilty after learning that fact and he became traumatized.

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

I don't really consider Sid a villain. He didn't know they were alive, so I see him more as misunderstood.

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 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 blowed 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, is not the main villain. He's the second villain.

What? 12? Why not 4? This guy may not be the literal boss, but my gosh, this guy is definitely the boss! Maybe not as evil as Axelrod, but this guy ordered to kill with absolutely no empathy and was blazing mad when Lightning Mcqueen was not dead.

He should have been the main antagonist instead of Miles Axelrod.

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.

He is better than that stupid Lotso!

I would have bought him

14 Miles Axlerod (Cars 2)

When Miles Axlerod sold off his fortune, converted himself into an electric vehicle and has devoted his life to finding the renewable, he then created the racing competition (World Grand Prix), just so he can 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, and 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 due to the fact that they own the largest untapped oil reserves in the world. Miles Axlerod is the most evil main villain and has planned all of this.

Miles should be WAY higher up, somewhere in the top five. Maybe he's not the most evil, but he sure is the most manipulative and dirty villain. Trying to get cars to stop using alternate fuels so that his company owning the largest oil reserves can gain profits from it, while making himself seem likea nice and humble car who converted himself into an electric car is just complex and interesting at its finest!

How is he below sid, chick hicks, and auto he ordered to kill lightning mcqueen, mater, and the queen this guy is a sociopath who wants money and who will do anything for it this is number 3 and not 14.

I'm not going to lie, Cars 2 may have sucked but damn I did not see that twist coming at the end.

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, 1 is syndrome. not number 16

This should be number 1, how is it below Chick Hicks? This guy was a monster

Oh snap that's big bear

16 Thunderclap (The Good Dinosaur)

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

He is forgettable. I am sorry man.

He killed a small fox

He's so underrated

17 Emperor Zurg (Toy Story 2)

This evil emperor is a master mind of robot making, kind of like syndrome. The only person has worried about killing is buzz light year. Unfortunaly he does not get to.

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 deserves top 6 spot for his similarity to Darth Vader with the process of killing Buzz Lightyear.

18 Darla Sherman (Finding Nemo)

Is she really a villain? I know that she is an antagonist, but I don't think she means to be a fish killer. She just wanted the fish to wake up and meet her. She clearly is interested in fish, but she doesn't realize how destructive and monster-like she is to them.

She's an animal abuser but was not aware that what she was doing was wrong. Hopefully she was taught to respect animals, even more 'lesser' ones like fish and bugs.

Why is she here? She's a little girl. She didn't know better.

I don't think she really is a villain. she doesn't know the harm she is causing to the fish

19 The Underminer (The Incredibles)

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

20 Skinner (Ratatouille)

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 hell, this guy doesn't know that this rat has dreams too! Seriously, Skinner deserves to be noticed more.

Where is vampire man (anton ego)? He reforms, but he is a total creep.

I love him! He's so funny! So funny...

21 Dr. Phillip Sherman (Finding Nemo)

He did not know that Darla would kill that innocent fish. He is just a dentist.

He didn't know that Darla was going to kill the fish.

Whoa whoa whoa! Wait dr Phillip is not villain he's just a dentist

He is not the bad guy.He thought he saved nemo because nemo looked like he was dying.

22 Grem (Cars 2)

This ranking is underrated! This guy had a smile when he killed someone. Maybe he was taking orders, but while 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)

Just because he's insane those not mean he's evil. He just wants to have parties, but takes his love on a whole other level.

How is he a villain? He's only in the movie for literally 2 minutes, so he does not count.

24 Alpha (Up)

Geez, the one time where the voice went up a lot of pitches.

25 Dr. Calico (Bolt)

Idiot. Bolt wasn't a pixar movie, never is and never will be.
