Top Ten Best Dreamworks Animated Villains

Were all aware about 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

Masterpiece of a villain. Tragic background, incandescent with a lust for revenge to appease his self-satisfaction and an overall badass and terrifying peacock.

Number 11,6,1

Hope he comes back in the future story or have a spin off movie

He is the darkest villain, with the best background

2 Mrs. Tweedy - Chicken Run

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

Voiced by Miranda Richardson - 445956

3 Ramesses - Prince of Eygpt

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.

Plus He's Voiced By Ralph Fienes Who Is a Also Voldemort In Harry Potter

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

Voiced by Ralph Fiennes - 445956

4 Chantel Dubios - Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted

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

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.

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

5 Fairy Godmother - Shrek 2

Xenophobic and charismatic at the same time

A great villain - SapphireDragon95

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

She almost succeeded and had an epic musical number

6 Eris - Sinbad: Legend of the 7 Seas

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.

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.

Best DreamWorks villain hands down!

7 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

Movies like this deserve a sequel. The villain of the sequel should totally team up with Pitch in the next movie and the villain should be a human who shares Pitch's ideals.

I don't see any reason why with his design, style, abilities, words and personality, he couldn't be on the top of the list. I mean, he's an epic villain.

8 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 - 445956

9 Stoick - How to Train your Dragon

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

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

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

Voiced by Gerard Butler - 445956

10 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

Voiced by Rainn Wilson - 445956

The Contenders

11 Tai Lung - Kung Fu Panda

He is better then chen

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.


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

12 Rumpelstiltskin - Shrek Forever After Rumpelstiltskin - Shrek Forever After

Voiced by Walt Dohrn - 445956

13 Lord Farquaad - Shrek 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.

Do you think maybe he's compensating for something?

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.

Voiced by John Lithgow - 445956

14 The Toad - Flushed Away

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?!

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 very very funny

Voiced by Ian McKellen - 445956

15 Megamind - Megamind

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

You should have also done Tighten

Voiced by Will Ferrell - 445956

16 Drago Bloodfist - How to Train Your Dragon 2

He should be below just below shen

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 should be in top 5

Why isn't Drago in the top 5? He killed Stoick, I mean he killed STOICK. One of Dreamworks best work for sure!

17 Kai - Kung Fu Panda 3

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

He is awesome unlike tai lung who was the only Kung fu panda villain that used bruit strength mai uses che

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


18 Grimmel the Grisly - How to Train Your Dragon

Easily one of the best HTTYD villains.

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

Dragon killer sadisticly

The most evil villain ever he killed toothlesses entire family and so many other night furies this guy is beyond cruel

19 Professor Poopypants - Captain Underpants

Funniest villain in the studio ever!

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

He tried to rid the world of laughter

He is funny pp diarrhea pooppants

20 Don Lino - Shark Tale

He's a villain with anger issues

Good Someone Is Defending Shark Tale and In My Opinion Shark Tale Is Great And Terribly Underrated And Is Better Than Frozen! ๐Ÿ˜€
And By The Way I Think Lino Makes A Great Villian! ๐Ÿ˜€

21 Captain Smek - Home

Smek is such a wimpy villain, he is a coward and I hate him! - Badabooo2

22 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.

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.

23 Moto Moto - Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa


Not a villain. But he does have some big plummy muscles

He's not a villain

24 Chef - Trolls

Yeah! Cool! Chef is an awesome villain!

She is creepy..

Voiced by Christine Baranski - 445956

25 Johann - Dragons: Race to the Edge

He makes up a more evil and bett villain than Viggo.

26 Titan - Megamind

Voiced by Jonah Hill - 445956

27 Tzekel-Kan - The Road to El Dorado


28 Creek - Trolls 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.

Worse than chef! At least heโ€™s better than Francis Francis and Prince Charming, but screw Creek!

He's hell evil

29 Vincent - Over the Hedge

He has so many food and its not bad.

30 Nana - Madagascar and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Not really what I would call a villain, but she is still hilarious. The scene where the penguins tried to her almost made me piss my pants.

31 Francis E. Francis - The Boss Baby

Just like Lambo Rocksstrikesback said, more like, Crappy Crappy!

He made the Forever puppy!

32 Makunga - Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
33 King Charming - Shrek the Third
34 Red Death - How to Train Your Dragon

Yep, she's one evil 'queen'. And she's rather strong to top it.

35 Gorg - Home

He is so cool, he's a proper super villain

NO It's NOT!

36 Drago's Bewilderbeast - How To Train Your Dragon 2

Okay, I know the Bewilderbeast was under Drago's control and all, but you gotta admit, it's definitely worthy of a spot up here, right up with the Red/Green Death!

37 Zarkon - Voltron
38 Fossa - Madagascar

They are kinda' awesome looking... but they haven't got much to say.

39 Dave - Penguins of Madagascar

Nicholas, cage them!
Elijah, would you please take them away?
Drew! Berry! More power!
Robin, write this down.
Charlize! They're on their way!
Helen, hunt them down!
William, hurt them!
Halle, bury them!
Hugh! Jack! Man the battle stations!
Kevin! Bake on! We're still going to need that victory cake!

Best DreamWorks villain.

He isn't too bad... although he isn't villain material.

40 Kai the Collector - Kung Fu Panda 3
41 Ken - Bee Movie
42 Gladys Sharp - Over the Hedge
43 Master Croc - Kung Fu Panda 2
44 Boss Wolf - Kung Fu Panda 2
45 Guy Gagne - Turbo
46 Robot Probes - Monsters vs Aliens

These giant robots are extremely powerful and durable, able to lift themselves out of a massive crater and use their force fields to protect them from pretty much anything. They have two huge arms that have big six clawed hands with drills inside them. They are really strong, being able to lift themselves out of huge craters with ease and destroy huge buildings and skyscrapers like they were nothing. They have one large eye that can scan and collect data of itโ€™s victims and in the video game, it can fire phaeton blasters. They have large mouths that can crush cars and other things. They are about 400ft tall, which gives them a very threatening and intimidating prescience. They might not be very fast (though there are times when one seems to move extremely quickly offscreen) but with their strength and durability, these robots could probably be one of, if not the strongest Dreamworks villain (or secondary antagonist) to date. Their only weaknesses would be that they are pretty slow, ...more
