Top 10 Most Evil Disney Villains

The Top Ten
1 Claude Frollo

I think Frollo is the evilest Disney villain ever. I mean sure Scar killed his own brother and Maleficent can turn herself into a dragon but Frollo has one thing they don't a conscience. He is the only villain with one. And plus he has a wicked song "Hellfire". Frollo is my number 1 Disney villain and he always will be. Think about it. Frollo did many evil things. The one scene kinda reminded me of Bambi when Frollo killed Quasimodo's mom and almost killed him. Frollo threatened to burn Esmeralda at the steak and he blames god for telling him to do all this stuff. And his song "Hellfire" is my number 1 Disney villain song. Poor Unfortunate Souls is No. 2 and Be Prepared is No.3. Maleficent is my No.2 Disney villain and Ursula is No.3. Scar unfortunately is No.6. Frollo is better than all these villains combined.

Judge Frollo was the evilest in my opinion, probably because his character and personality is so specific and he has such a defined goal compared to all the other villains. And what's terrible is that he believes that he is doing the right thing. Ursula is evil, yes, but at least she knows she is. Gaston may not know he's as awful as he is, but he at least tries to be nice (kind of) Frollo has committed so many crimes against the Church, the very thing he thought he was doing good for. He also is very biased against Gypsies and wants to murder, MURDER them just because of who they are. That's why I don't like Frollo.

2 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.

The thing is, unlike other Disney villains, Scar was very sneaky. He completely manipulated Simba into thinking that it was his fault that Mufasa died. He killed his own brother so he could take over the throne, then lied to the other lions, saying that both Mufasa and Simba were dead, when Simba was still alive. He tricked the hyenas into helping him, when really he didn't care about them. Even when he was practically defeated, he wouldn't give up. He still lied to Simba, still playing his little game with him. Scar didn't care about anyone but himself, all he wanted was the throne. He even went as far as murdering his own BROTHER. Scar was truly evil and hands down the best villain Disney has ever created.

Well Scar is pretty evil, but when I did my vote first I chose Frollo because Frollo starts a genocide, killed an innocent person, murdered a mother of a deformed child (Quasimodo) and then tried to kill the baby (thank goodness for that priest), and the baby that he was forced to adopt he locked in a bell tower for like 20 years. Though what Scar did is pretty evil too, but it's kinda what you expect in those types of kingdoms back in the times that I think the Lion King is refrencing to if you look at history stuff.

3 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.

"Mistress of All Evil," "Queen of Darkness"; these are not nicknames given to a b-class villain ok? How heartless can one be to curse an entire kingdom, to try and kill the very pinnacle of innocence, a baby, and all because she wasn't invited to the christening. When she speaks, entire kingdoms crumble from fear and she doesn't even have to use her dark magic, of which she possesses an almost limitless supply. There is no villain more wretched, more evil, more inspiring than Maleficent."

Maleficent is the misstress of all evil. A psychotic and pathetic monster who takes pride of torturing the innocent people. What makes her more frightening is her evil smile and her transformation into a huge fiery dragon. She will stop at nothing to get what she wants and she will gladly torture you to death and then she will make a sick joke over your dead body. If you do not to mess with her just remember to send her an invitation to your party.

4 Chernabog Chernabog is a Disney villain from the 1940s film Fantasia, and in his segment, "A Night on Bald Mountain".

Chernabog is not your stereotypical villain. First of all, this guy is never given a reason to act evil. He just commits evil for fun, with no known justification. At least the ones near the top of the list could justify their actions in the eyes of a few people. Also, this guy commits atrocities that even Maleficent wouldn't dare attempt. Not only does he raise the souls of the dead from the surrounding countryside, he forces them to dance for him and then burns them in hellfire after they disappoint him. This guy manages to be evil to you even after you are finally resting in peace.

Chernabog needs to be number 1. He's not a villain that's random. First of all, he gives no reason to be evil. He commits evil for fun. Scar and Frollo do have their reasons to act evil. Scar just wants to overthrown his brother to be king. And yes, even though that's so evil, he's still have reasons. Frollo however, he just wants everything that's good, he was trying to prove that he's supposed to be a god and he tells people not to disobey him. He's a confused man that's evil and thinks that he's a good man. Chernabog doesn't play like that. He proves that he is truly evil, not just for killing, but also that he forces his army to dance for him. After trying their best, he just killed them because they disappointed him. He hates everything that's Love and peace. He's always been evil. Also, villains do worship him and get their dark magic from him, Maleficent, The Evil Queen, Ursula, Jafar, Dr. Facilier, and a few others. Maleficent's magic and design comes from Chernabog. She's always been worshipping him as if he was her greatest master. Other villains fear him. So yes, Chernabog will always be number 1. And make Maleficent number 2.

5 The Coachmen

This guy should be #1! If anyone forgot how evil he is I suggest you dust of your Pinocchio movie and watch it again. This scumbag kidnapped hundreds, if not thousands of young boys by luring them to pleasure island. After getting the children to smoke and drink they got transformed into donkeys. He gathered them up and stripped them of their clothes so they could be sold to places like the salt mines. The ones that could still talk were left until they couldn't or were used to pull his own personal stagecoach. This wasn't the coachmen's first time doing this either. Who knows how many boys he's kidnapped and sold throughout the years? This guy not only destroyed the lives of the children but also left the lives of the families in ruin. Mothers and Fathers forever wondering where there sons have disappeared to. The coachmen has very little screen time but from what we see of him we can know he is a grade A class turd and is the most evil disney villain.

6 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.

Jafar basically kidnaps people and forces them to risk their lives for him. He fools a sultan, which essentially translates into fooling the whole land. He tries to drown Aladdin. He sends Aladdin to who KNOWS where, and then he tears the Sultan's palace apart. He keeps Jasmine as his se(you know what) slave and then tries to drown her alive in sand when she turns him. Then there's the whole snake thing, where he tries to kill Aladdin, who's probably 18, and he wants to be a genie, so he's the most powerful figure ever. This one's not even a contest.

This guy is like the greatest Disney villain of all time. I've seen many Disney villains like skirthead (skar),maleficient, shan yu, Ursula, Cruella de vil, hades, zira, turbo, kylo ren and many more. But you wanna know who's the cruelest one of them all? That's right! Jafar easily tops number 2 besides bill cypher. If this guy were to fight against scar and the hyenas, he would wipe them out in an instant. He and Bill Cypher would make the perfect team. He almost beat Aladdin but then he did something really dumb. He ordered the genie to turn him into a genie too but then he got sucked into that lamp and then the genie threw his lamp across towards some hills. He tried to hypnotize the sultan and kill Aladdin.

7 The Queen

She didn't try to kill Snow White. She tried to put her in a coma and have her buried alive, where she'd presumably live out the rest of a long life since she's only 14 and doesn't need to breathe. Presumably, the queen will even still be the fairest in the land (because Snow White is technically still alive even if she is 6 ft under), so it's not even as though the queen just wanted the mirror to shut up about her. She could have just sent her to another kingdom. She would have been the fairest in the land again and as an added bonus no one would be buried alive! Also, in the original story, she wanted Snow White's heart so she could eat it as well as feed some to Snow White's father. The Queen is a petty sociopath with magic. That's horrifying. And that scene where she's clearly locked someone up and let them starve to death/die of thirst? And the skeleton is just reaching for an empty jug? How can anyone think she's not the worst?

8 Shan-Yu

Shan-Yu should be closer to the number one spot. This is because he has killed so many people. He kills a messenger, an army of soldiers, innocent men, women and children. We even see that Shang's father is dead and a doll which belonged to a little girl, which was so dark. Also, he abducts two messengers and just kills one of them in satisfaction. He is blood thirsty, brutal, ruthless, agressive and down right evil. Also, his choice of becoming evil is to take over China which is far better than any other reason. This shows that not only is Shan-Yu evil he is a disney villain he needs so much recognition.

In my opinion, Shan Yu has never been given enough credit in these lists, then again, neither has the film, Mulan. True, Maleficent tried to kill a baby, and true, the Evil Queen did try to kill a girl simply because she was prettier than her, but, in terms of evil, neither come close to Shan Yu.
Shan Yu is a bloodthirsty warrior. He had a total disregard for human life, even enough to make a a cruel joke out of killing fleeing soldiers and completely destroying both villages and its innocent occupants. Men, women and children. That's definitely evil in my books.

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

Ursula, the very name is spooky. It means she bear, and she definitely shows it by her care for her minions. Let's begin, she is a special kind of evil, she creates deals like Rumpelstiltskin, she can hypnotize her prey, she doesn't even need a staff like Jafar. Even look at her lair, who do you think killed that beast? Ursula! I marvel at her ability to strike fear into her foes, even in King Triton himself. If you ask me she is the number one villain of all time. Also, yes indeed she is fat, but take her tentacles into perspective, she can squeeze the life out of six pitiful poor souls at one time. Also, the color of her tentacles... BLACK the very color of evil and mystery. Also, the rest of her body is purple, people come on, the color represents creativity and magic. We all know that she possesses some of the most recognizable dark magic of all time. She is so creative that she tricks Prince Eric into believing that she was the woman of his dreams. So, not only did she steal Ariel's voice, but she takes her man as well! I hope this makes you realize the ultimate power of the great sea witch Ursula. Ursula may not be the fairest of them all, but she is definitely the evillest.

10 Horned King

John Hurt did an epic job of emphasising just how evil this guy really is. He will stop at NOTHING to get what he wants, even if it means killing off innocent cuddly creatures and sacrificing children.

Raises an army of undead warriors and tells them to destroy everything in their path. Should be number 1 even though I agree frollo is also terrible.

He definitely is pretty evil. He looks like a devil to me but too bad he thinks that his power cannot die but he is wrong; he died all right.

The Contenders
11 Cruella De Vil Cruella de Vil is a fictional character who appeared in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians, Disney's animated film adaptations 101 Dalmatians and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure, and Disney's live-action film adaptations 101 Dalmatians and 102 Dalmatians as the main antagonist.

This one was easy. Just search up 'dalmatian puppies' on google images and, considering that your heart isn't made out of stone, you will understand exactly why Cruella De Ville earned a spot on this list. Not only has she got a terrifying rage-face, but she tried to murder puppies. PUPPIES. Now, don't get me wrong, I've heard the whole, 'well, you eat cows and sheep and chickens, don't you? What's wrong with eating dogs/guinea pigs/monkeys? ' Well, here's the thing. First off, she doesn't want to eat them, she wants to WEAR them. Plus, they're puppies, so hey, if you have a problem with my decision, you and your heart of stone can go.

Cruella is in my opinion the most cruel and crazy villain that Disney already created. She didn't want to harm the good guy or the girl for power, money or greed like others. She just wants to kill 99 puppies dalmatians to make a coat. If this is not the pure evil, what will be then?

12 Bill Cipher Bill Cipher is a triangular dream demon formerly existent only in the mindscape who wished to gain access to the real world. 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 is the main antagonist of Gravity Falls, although he doesn't play a central role in the series until... read more

Not sure if he's the most evil villain per say (there's plenty of material from the series to argue with my previous statement, as he did destroy and entire dimension, possibly killing billions of people), but he is definitely the most powerful one of this list.
Not sure where the whole "Chernabog is the most powerful villain in Disney ever" thing began, but Bill Cipher will kick his butt so quickly it's not even funny.
Like a typical villain, he is ruthless, cunning, but still has a humorous side to him.
He is feared by being in the 7th and 11th dimension, proving how dangerous he is; he can destroy entire universes, remember? , And he managed to one-shot another universal level being, Time Baby.

Guys please be smart. He is spreading weirdness/chaos to the world just for fun! That's the villain I like! He also kills people for fun! He destroyed Time Baby and he can easily destroy other villains with his physical form without a doubt. Heck he even thought pain was hilarious! He may not be as creative as other villains... But... he Is still out there...tiLl he can be freed... and unLeash his chaos to the world... ha see what I did there! it says BILL ya silly goose! But yeah in all reality he actually wants to cause chaos and weirdness to the world just for the fun of it!

13 Hades

For crying out loud... Hades tries continuously to kill his own nephew Hercules and his brother, Zeus... not to mention, he's hilarious! And seriously, this guy is the LORD OF THE DEAD, okay? The devil. Can't get any more evil than that.

Hades is the coolest! He is the funny from Captain Hook, the backstabbing of Scar, the planning of Jafar, the power of Malificent, the short temper of Cruelia De Vil, and the manipulating of Gothel, the heartlessness of Shere Khan all rapped into one epic awesome god of the dead!

Besides being the devil and one of the disney villain leaders, he tried to kill his own nephew, former slave, brother and sister in law. He is also angry all the time and considerd as the most angry disney villain.

14 Oogie Boogie

He is the shadow on the moon at night, filling your dreams to the brim with fright.

He's the shadow on the moon. He scares with style.

Like my dad minus the last two!

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.

This wicked crone and hypocritical narcissist and main antagonist and villain of the movie and film, Tangled, was indeed considered to be called a narcissist all because of her crimes of gaslighting which is the narcissist's favorite tool. Also, another way to tell with and spot a narcissist is they're likable at first glance like she first said to Rapunzel, "I love you!" and then Rapunzel said back to her "I love you more!" and then she said back to her again "I love you most!". Rapunzel could've also even said to her, "I love you infinity!" It also even said that her true personality herself is glamorous, but ruthless, hypocritical, greedy, narcissistic, cold, cruel, and uncaring.

She is wicked. First of all she kidnapped a baby because of her hair. Instead of having Rapunsel hair cure other people including her self, she keeps Rapunsel's magical hair to her self locking her up in a tower isolated from civilization. Rapunsel had to grow up with no friends or father and no knowledge on how the outside world works. Not only that but she went to extreme measures to get Rapunsel back. I mean there must have been other way to get her back. However she just had to stab Rapunsel's boyfriend and do all these other horrible things just to kidnap a person.

16 Percival C. McLeach

He as the main villain and antagonist of the movie and film and special, The Rescuers Down Under, kind of sort of strongly resembles and reminds me a little bit of even Charles F. Muntz from the Pixar movie and film and special, Up. Both of them died in the end as their defeats. Plus, both of them were trying to kill like even a mother bird in the nest which is a sin committed I just read and found out all by myself.

This guy more than well deserves a spot on this list, because he's a greedy poacher who LOVES killing and will do whatever he has to in order to get filthy rich. By the end of the movie he even attempted to feed Cody to the Crocodiles. And he has his own twisted way of singing "Home on the Range". He's cold and sadistic and loves it. He definitely makes a good villain.

Nothing personal boy, but I wouldn't want to disappoint the rangers. They was looking so hard for ya, and now... they're gonna find ya!

17 Doctor Facilier

Facilier's evil alright because he's known as a sorcerer. He turned Tiana into a frog. At the end though he is frightened to see his friends on the other side which drag him to death.

He, literally (and not the wrong use of literally, the actual, literal use) sold his soul for his powers.

He is my favorite villain of all time. Super cool. Should be top guy in the number one slot!

18 Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear

He is indeed considered the darkest and worst and most evil villain out of all in the whole entire Toy Story franchise.

I loved stuffed bears he messed up my childhood.

This is a truly tragic villain we have here.

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

The reason I think Gaston is the most evil villain is not because of all of the villainous things he does but because he is so manipulative. He can manipulate and convince anyone (Except Belle) to do anything he wants, the way he convinced that crowd of people to kill the Beast that fast is terrifying he has so much power over the regular harmless people that he will do what he wants wether it is good or bad and he has everyone's full concent.

He wanted to kill the beast because Beast fell in love with Belle which he stabs Beast in the side and then dies by falling off the castle.

He wasn't really evil, he was just jealous that Belle didn't love him. And that she picked the Beast over him.

20 Lady Tremaine

Yes I agree 100% with Frollo. But Lady Tremaine must be 2nd. She's evil with no powers. She tourtured a beautiful young innocent girl for many years. She made her a servant for a long time. She made a deal with her and broke that deal by letting her daughters tear that dress she knew cinderella worked hard for. When she figured out she was the one at the ball she locked cinderella up in attic where the duke wouldn't find her! She even broke the slipper right before cinderella would try it on. Don't forget in the sequel where she gets ahold of the magic wand and casts a spell where the prince doesn't reemember Cinderella just for selfish reason. This woman is underrated for evilness and I say she is at least top 10

She was hard on Cinderalla for many years and gave her lots, and I mean lots, of chores for her to do if Cinderalla wanted to go to the ball.

She is a selfish woman and punishes Cinderella by assigning her extra chores.

21 King Candy King Candy (real name Turbo) is the main antagonist of Disney's 2012 animated feature film, Wreck-It Ralph. He was the self-proclaimed ruler of Sugar Rush, a kart-racing video game set in a candy-themed kingdom. Originating from TurboTime, Turbo was once the most beloved character in the arcade, until his popularity was superseded by newer games. Mad with jealousy, Turbo sought to reclaim the spotlight... read more

Turbo basically disguises himself as a Disney sidekick, which is something that Disney has never really done before.
Not to mention that he ends up manipulating his world so he can get what he wants. He basically ends up messing with everybody's memories and uses that to take over. Turbo is terrifying!

Turbo was once a popular video game character until he got jealous when a new racing game came out. He screwed up racing games and when "Sugar Rush" came out, (SPOILER ALERT! ) he disguises himself as "King Candy", planning to screw that game up as well.

Turbo is extremely evil, sadistic and cruel.

I guess all that fame went into his head...

I don't really know what happened between Turbo and Vanellope Von Schweetz but why does he hate her so much?

22 Bill Sykes

Who? That's right, Sykes. For those of you who don't even know who the heck this guy is, I'll give you a quick catchup.
He not only threatened and blackmailed a hobo (and his dogs), forcing him to do whatever he wanted, such as steal and kidnap, but he also did some of the dirty work himself. True, he never killed anyone, not in the film anyway, but he kidnapped a small girl and held her for ransom. Also, he has always creeped me out.

He's one of the more forgotten ones, but he's actually really good. Unlike many Disney villains he's a modern one. And he gives a good representation of the underground world. Loan Sharks (Him being one), the Mob, etc. Seedy people who you don't want to get involved with or cross. Unless you wanna wear concrete shoes at the bottom of a river.

Very evil and very underrated. He needs more recognition.

23 Governor Ratcliffe

So evil just like frollo he attempted genocide and did mass murder and he's racist!

He always is greedy. He loves gold. I like him too.

Most evil. He is a racist

24 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 for revenge. Despite not having any super powers, he is extremely intelligent and creates state-of-the-art... read more

Murdered several superheroes just because Mr. Incredible said no.

Hair is bigger than his head. What more do you want?

This guy is so so evil.

25 Bellwether

I mean seriously I did NOT expect that wow! So so startling they should have made a more you know like a hyena or jaguar or something but certainly not a sheep.
