Top 10 Scariest Disney Characters
He's so scary he'll scare half of your favorite Disney characters off!
Ok, I admit he's wickedly scary. Don't bother him. You know he's really the Devil!
Just downright freaky!
Just looking at her is freaky! The scene where she drinks the potion and makes the poisoned apple to give to Snow White always gave me chills.
The scene where her crow hides its head under a skull in fear upon seeing her as a hag speaks for itself.
I'm so scared of the old hag!
She has an overall uncanny skeletal appearance, but her most terrifying moment is the shot with her murderous rage as she chases after Pongo, Perdita, and the titular 101 Dalmatian puppies in the film's climax.
It's a giant tiger head in the sand who talks in a very frightening voice. If you're not worthy of entering the cave, he gobbles you up. Just ask Gazeem.
Keep in mind, Simba is not so scary normally, but in the scene when he exiles Kovu, he is not just scary, but even terrifying. So much so that I can hardly look at his face when he roars "EXILE!" If I can look at him at all during this scene. Also, his tone during Kovu's exile is so chilling. I do think Kovu may still have nightmares of his exile. Just imagine this from his (Kovu's) point of view.
How did he go from being so adorable as a cub to being scary as heck as an adult during Kovu's exile? To be honest, I have no idea. Needless to say, real lions are very dangerous.
That's one scary whale.
From my probably favorite Disney movies, and a bit underrated, is Judge Claude Frollo. A man who commits genocide, abuses his own adoptive son, smiles while a person is screaming and crying in pain, sexually harasses Esmeralda, and brainwashes Quasimodo, keeping him in a cathedral for two decades. Quasimodo is a good person and has never gone out or disobeyed Frollo until recently in the movie. He's also brainwashing the people, all while believing he is doing it in the name of God. That's a recipe for a downright evil villain, and he has a nice voice to help persuade people. If this isn't scary, I don't know what is.
It's not his appearance that is scary about him. It's his horrible personality that makes him a terrifying villain.
Unlike other Disney villains, he believes that what he's doing is good since he's a religious person. He downright murders a gypsy woman, quite literally, on Notre Dame's stairs, and then tries to drown her baby (whom he later names Quasimodo after his plan fails).
Also, he lusts after Esmeralda and sexually harasses her, quite literally. Then, he tries to kill both Quasimodo and Esmeralda, and almost succeeds.
Thank goodness he is now rotting in hell following his death.
He's utterly terrifying in the climax of the film, where he sheds his polite facade and reveals his true self as a savage rat.
Voiced by the awesome and legendary Vincent Price.
Shere Khan from the 2016 live-action remake, voiced by Idris Elba, is even scarier than his animated counterpart.
Unlike his animated counterpart, this Shere Khan literally murders Akela onscreen and actively tries to kill Mowgli. His animated counterpart only appeared in the original film in the last third, and he and Mowgli only met in the climax.
Also, Idris Elba's voice alone makes him sound so scary and intimidating, but this just proves how talented Idris Elba is.
She isn't called "The Mistress of All Evil" for nothing. She can look very scary in the climax of Sleeping Beauty, especially after she transforms into a dragon.
That face is red! Creepy.
Sid was one creepy kid, but he does make a huge change after the first movie, as we see when he makes a brief cameo in Toy Story 3.
Disgusting insides that talk and cry.
