Most Evil Fictional Characters

The Top Ten
1 Walter White (Breaking Bad) Walter "Walt" Hartwell White Sr. is a fictional character and the main protagonist of Breaking Bad, portrayed by Bryan Cranston.

Much like Darth Vader, Walter White stands on top of the hill as an evil, murderous villain adored by fans of the show Breaking Bad. His progression from small-time chemistry teacher to mastermind drug lord is renowned in TV and enjoyed by viewers.

2 Joffrey Baratheon (Game of Thrones) Joffrey Baratheon is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

With his snotty, bratty, and cocky attitude, along with his ruthless and sadistic tendencies, Joffrey Baratheon is easily one of the most hated villains in all of television history. He ordered the execution of Eddard Stark, put his head on a stake, and then taunted Sansa about it. Though he boasts of being dangerous, he cowers at the first sight of danger. Despite his consistent evil, he stuck around on Game of Thrones for some time before being poisoned and killed. Sweet justice.

3 William Afton (Five Nights at Freddy’s) William Afton, commonly known as Purple Guy prior to the official name being revealed, is the former co-founder of Fazbear Entertainment, Inc. as well as the main antagonist and catalyst of the Five Nights at Freddy's series.

Cartman is just too evil for palpatine. watch,scott tenorman must die'' and,kenny dies'' and you're gonna know why this fatso is most evil fictional character of all the time. He is just evil itself, isn't he? He also controled Cthulhu (sry, I don't know how to write it), and just poorly destroyed the whole existance, cause he was mad, that's so psycho.

5 Negan (The Walking Dead) Negan is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the American television series of the same name.

The Walking Dead has had their fair share of evil guys, but Negan really takes the cake. After surrounding the many heroes of Alexandria, he ruthlessly bashed in Abraham's head with his baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. Then, he turned his anger on Glenn, beating his brains out as well. To top it all off, he almost forced Rick to cut off Carl's hand but decided against it at the last moment. Along with having multiple wives, many of whom he's taken from other men, Negan manipulates, tortures, and brainwashes his followers into submission.

Pennywise the Clown in both the TV mini-series and the recent movie relentlessly hunts down and murders children. While it dresses up like a clown, it really is an evil being from another dimension. When it arrives on Earth, it can't help but feed on children, creating a huge body count in the town of Derry.

9 Darth Vader (Star Wars) Darth Vader is a Star Wars character and the main antagonist of the first three original Star Wars films and the main protagonist of the Star Wars prequel trilogy under his original name Anakin Skywalker. He had been trained as a Jedi but defected to the Sith lord and Galactic Chancellor Palpatine. ...read more.

Darth Vader is a rare mass-murdering villain. While he's done horrific things, he still has a lot of adoring fans. Maybe it's the breathing, the dark suit, or the fact that he's so crazy iconic, but none of that takes away the horrible things he's done. Like, you know, strangling people to death, drugging his own daughter to pump information out of her, and committing horrific genocide by blowing up entire planets. At least, if anything, he found redemption in the end.

10 Michael Myers (Halloween) Michael Myers is a character from the Halloween series of slasher films. He first appears in John Carpenter's Halloween as a young boy who murders his older sister, then fifteen years later returns home to murder more teenagers. ...read more.

12 Jack Torrance (The Shining) John Daniel Edward "Jack" Torrance is the main antagonist of Stephen King's horror novel The Shining.

Jack Torrence, at this point, is almost as classic a villain as Count Dracula. A writer who loses his mind on a retreat at a secluded hotel, he discovers there's more to the hotel than he knew. After going crazy, he terrorizes his wife and child with an axe. It's really the slow progression of insanity and the terrifying ways he attacks his family that makes him so evil.

22 Ramsay Bolton (Game of Thrones) Ramsay Bolton, also known as Ramsay Snow, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

Ramsay is more evil then joffrey in my opinion, and joffrey is number one. So this guy should be at least top 5

25 James Moriarty (Sherlock)
