Top 10 Best Dreamworks Animated Villains

We're all aware of the classic Disney villains and how awesome they are. Then I thought, what about the DreamWorks animated villains because I think there are a ton of great villains to come out of DreamWorks. So here is my tribute to those amazing DreamWorks baddies.
The Top Ten
1 Lord Shen - Kung Fu Panda 2

With an intimidating color scheme and a tone of voice to match, Lord Shen is easily the leading villain on this list. This iconic bird is responsible for the death of Po's mother and the spilt blood of countless other pandas.

"Hapiness must be taken, and I will take mine..."

Shen is one of the most complex movie villains ever, his relationship with the Soothsayer is amazing, his rivalry with Po felt genuine, his fighting style is fluid and visually satisfying, his voice is awesome, he has a sympathetic backstory, he's one of the only villains who are funny as well as intimidating(Ultron done right), he's also literally animal Hitler.

Lord Shen isn't just my favorite DreamWorks villain of all time, he's my favorite animated villain of all time. Everything about him is perfect, from his character design to his character arc to his dialogue to Gary Oldman's voicework...I just love Shen. Not even love to hate. Love to love.

They need to bring him back so he can have his own spin-off.

Where he survive and he goes to Japan.

He found an orphan female goat.

He adopted her and train her in martial arts.

He begins to love his daughter.

He protects Japan.

2 Rameses - The Prince of Egypt

Some of the villains are pretty evil here, but I personally think Ramesses is the best villain, because of how sympathetic he is. It just didn't feel right for Moses to abandon his brother for a god he met like one time at the end of the movie.

Ramses was my favortie dreamworks villain all time and why Ramses to be mad at moses

He is my favorite villain of all time.

Well a pharaoh

3 Chantel Dubois - Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

This Woman Is Without A Doubt My Favorite Dreamworks Villain For 3 Main Reasons.

Reason 1: She's Absolutely Insane!

Reason 2: It Always Feels Like She's Non-Human But Rather A Supervillain. I Mean She Literally Walks Through A Soda Machine Without Flinching!

Reason 3: She's Been Exactly As She Is Now As She Was A Little Child!

Basically Chantel DuBois Is A Great Villain For A Great Movie.

She made me become a misanthrope and lose my faith in humanity.

Chanteldubios has red hair red lips and black hair and she wants to kill Alex

She is very mean to other people and animals.

4 Mrs. Tweedy - Chicken Run

Mrs. tweedy got defeated from mr tweedy from closing the door on her

Mrs. Tweedy: Mr. Tweedy!


5 Fairy Godmother - Shrek 2

She's my favorite DreamWorks villain of all time! I love her voice and her quotes!
She should be in the top 3.

Best shrek villan of all, turned the king into a frog, tried to kill shrek and kinda caused the events of shrek 3 to happen. A great villan

Xenophobic and charismatic at the same time

A great villain

She almost succeeded and had an epic musical number

6 Pitch Black - Rise of the Guardians

I think he has far more charm than the fairy Godmother, more wit than Ramses and you have to admit, his powers are definitely awesome... and very useful, should they be used correctly.

After all, how many characters do you know that can manipulate and travel through shadows? How many characters can read peoples' fears and strike terror into one's heart? Do you know many who can corrupt their opponent's element and turn it against them? I have a feeling you may not. Asides from that, he's skilled in equestrian and for someone who likely didn't have a sparring partner for the longest time, he knows how to handle a scythe well enough. But the nightmare arrow certainly has to be the cleverest weapon. And it's not just how he uses weapons, but also opportunities, other people's weaknesses and their ways of thinking against them in the most efficient way. He tricks Sanderson into thinking he's weaker than he really was, drew him away from Jack and casually delivered the best comeback ...more

He's fear himself and he does it well without over-doing it for the most part. Granted, towards the end DreamWorks makes a few bad decisions in writing the character as he practically gives Jack his staff, his memories and Baby Tooth, but in a way that makes him the reason Jack ever found out who he was. He was the person who actually explained anything to Jack. From how belief works, to how he just isn't the only spirit in the world and he can't take on things by himself all the time.

He makes the fairy tale boogeyman appear like something neither human not entirely monstrous and that makes children unnerved, which is a good way to design someone who's task is to spread fear.

Personality-wise he is a typically grouchy and sarcastic villain that does admittedly use the monologue-cliche to explain himself... but alone with only one other person he lets on a little more than the typical power-hungry villain and drops his guard. Some people would claim it fake, but I highly ...more

Erm... well I have only seen the movie three times. And I've only seen it for a first time at the very start of this month, yet he is rather epic. He is far better a villain than Ramesses, even though I agree that Shen is also very good, but you can't blame me for trying and getting Pitch to his rightful place. Somewhere in the top 3. And not below Ramesses.
And I hate Voldemort.
However, the main reason I like this character is because he does make mistakes, but when he does they are quite hilarious and like Shen he is kinda... savvy? He is also positively an evil guy, but seems to have the past of a good guy.
He looks evil and symbolizes darkness. Even his eyes symbolize darkness... you don't get much more intimidating than that.
Also his way of creeping in and out of shadows is plain awesome. And he's been shown to show feelings. I mean, did you not see that look when Jack Frost thought of his idea as whack and decline the offer of joining him? Or that cunning attempt ...more

He's literally the Boogie man. The dark fear monger on which all evil and villainy is based. How can he only be number 7?
He is the one we all used to have our parents check under the beds for, the shadow from whom we hide under our blankets, the reason we plugged in our night lights and cuddled our teddy bears. He is fear itself. He is Pitch Black.

Not only that but in a tie in comic they showed that he was the one to inspire Lovecraft and the entire Cthulu mythos.

7 Tai Lung - Kung Fu Panda

Best villain of all time. He wasn't a coward like Shen was. He actually fought his own battles. He didn't use machinery to kill opponents either. Tai Lung defeated the whole furious five with easy and nearly killed Shifu without a scratch. He knows the secrets of Kung fu unlike Shen and is the most hardcore villain of all dream works time

Total badass, origins and motives that we can understand and sympathize with, none of the other Dreamworks villains come even CLOSE to this guy in quality.

He is better then chen

The best villiaian Dreameorks has created!

8 Lord Farquaad - Shrek Lord Farquaad is the main antagonist of the 2001 animated feature film, Shrek, as well as Shrek 4D. He is voiced by John Lithgow.

Literally animated Hitler.

Even the small height jokes resemble what everyone did with tyrants back in the old days.
Lord Shen is a frightened child with mental problems, Farquaad is truly evil, if maybe a bit uncapable and kind of a weakling.

Do you think maybe he's compensating for something?

Best anime character of the 15th century

Why is he only #13?
He should be in the top 3

9 Eris - Sinbad: Legend of the 7 Seas

How can Eris not even be in the list when she is the most awesome Dreamworks villain ever? I guess it's because few people have seen this movie. Eris deserves to be in the top 10 with ease. She is clever, interesting and a GOD! The goddes of discord and chaos. She is so great she deserves another movie all of her own, or cameo's in many other dreamwork movies.

DreamWorks' Maleficent.

If Maleficent is usually regarded as the best Disney villain, why wouldn't Eris be considered the top dog here? She has caused the most harm across history, is the most evil and chaotic, has power that goes beyond anyone here...

Eris is definitely the best Dreamworks Villain. Seductive, powerful, and sly, but still bound by the word of a Goddess. Seriously, Eris has got to be top.

Best DreamWorks villain hands down!

10 General Mandible - Antz

I think me dibble was mean because they did not let them meet princess Bala

General mandible was cool bad guy he is

Voiced by Gene Hackman

The Contenders
11 Rumpelstiltskin - Shrek Forever After

Voiced by Walt Dohrn

12 Grimmel the Grisly - How to Train Your Dragon

Dark hiccup, Grimmel as evil as Drago, whom if by one second delay would have done the same thing Drago did, kill off a main charecter. Both outmatch Shen and Kai easily, two other villains whom I actually like, just like how the HTTYD franchise out matches the KFP franchise

Grimmel is my favorite villain of all time, plus the reason he deserves to be number 1 is cause he ends up succeeding.

Cool but also scary and bad

Dragon killer sadisticly

13 Stoick - How to Train your Dragon

Technically, Stoick is not a villain, but he still is kick-butt and awesome!

He, s not a villain he was such a amazing leader

I know everything about dragons but I've never seen anyone like stoick. he's amasing

Voiced by Gerard Butler

14 Gallaxhar - Monsters vs Aliens

He have the highest body count out of any DreamWorks villain! She destroy en entire plannet for having the quantonium. I also love his spaceship and his computer

He's the funniest villain ever!

Voiced by Rainn Wilson

15 Megamind - Megamind

Ah yes. One of the most entertaining characters of all time.

"Oh you're a villain alright, just not a super one."

Megamind is not a bad guy he is a good guy

You should have also done Tighten

16 Titan - Megamind

He is the Dreamworks version of Syndrome!

"It's Titan! It's Titan! Not Hal!"

Voiced by Jonah Hill

17 The Toad - Flushed Away

He was voiced by Ian mckellen, not to be confused with uncle Ian from Alvin and the chipmunks as he was brilliantly portrayed by mr cross. (Oh who are we kidding, they sound nothing alike! )

The Toad was just perfect. He's one of the tallest exposed characters in Flushed Away. Why does Flushed Away not even have a sequel yet?!

The toad was very very funny

Voiced by Ian McKellen

18 Drago Bludvist - How to Train Your Dragon 2

A villain as menacing as Drago Bludvist was is definitely worthy of the top 10 DreamWorks animated villains! I mean, he's menacing (as I said before), and not easily defeated! If anyone can kill off somebody like Stoick, then that's saying a lot, already! Yep, Drago is definitely up there somewhere!

Ruthless enough to kill main characters in the series and tame an alpha dragon. This guy is a true killer and he makes this movie a little edgy

Both Drago and Grimmel should be in top as both ar pure evil while Shen is honorable, which pulls him away from being that.

He's very threatening and very tough. He's one of the best Dreamworks Villains.

19 Professor Poopypants - Captain Underpants

He was defeated by getting shrunk and riding a bee away and then got put in jail?

Professor Poopypants is look handsome and cool

He tried to rid the world of laughter

Funniest villain in the studio ever!

20 Kai - Kung Fu Panda 3

He is basically if Dreamworks made Thanos from the MCU animated and Evil Cow. Because they both collect items to get Power.

Kai bets up Tai Lung and collected his chi. As evil as Shen but not as evil as Grimmel and Drago.

He wrecks everyone until Po masters chi

Most Dangerous Villian Ever in Dreamworks History.

He Steal the power of all the masters of China including OOGVE & SHI FU

The Fighting Style of KAI is EPIC

U all must see the KAI & when u see him u all want to become like him


21 Viggo Grimborn - Dragons: Race to the Edge

Viggo has to be one of the best. He's intelligent, getting under both Hiccup's, and my skin. Just knowing he gets away with so much makes my blood boil, and my skin crawl. I love it. I love even more when he made a return after getting all those burns and scars. Everything he does, he does for himself. Lying to Hiccup that he gave Toothless red oleander to kill him was by far the best plan he came up with. He died a hero death after being evil for seasons! It was the ultimate plot twist.

I LOVE VIGGO! He respects hiccup and is literally the smartest guy in the entire Httyd series. His death made me cry, and he was so confusing but I loved it. Why isn’t dagur on this list by the way? I LOVE DAGUR AS WELL

He was the best villain out of them all. He had the intellegence to rival Hiccup, kept his word as seen in "Buffalord Soldier", didn't force dragons to work for him like Krogan, show respect and didn't let his men die without a reason also unlike Krogan, had a sort of charming bluntness about him. He kind of felt like a older evil brother of Hiccup

He's manipulative, intelligent, evil and very villainous. He is a great villain and a unique one.

22 Tzekel-Kan - The Road to El Dorado

He is one of my least favorite villain of all Dreamworks.

23 Creek - Trolls

This guy is the evilest villain you'll ever see. He pretended to love Poppy just so that he could have power, sold out everyone just to save his own skin, and treated Branch like he was nothing. And, to add to that, he's going to appear as a villain again in Trolls 2. If I met this troll in person, I'd punch his face one hundred times, then I'd hit him in the nuts.

I hate this guy and I think that poppy and branch should be together

He's hell evil

Creek is ok and I like his pants.

24 The Verminator - Over the Hedge
25 Captain Smek - Home

Smek is such a wimpy villain, he is a coward and I hate him!

Smek was not to weird and he is so handsome
