Most Evil Villains In Movies and TV and Anime

The Top Ten

1 Johan Liebert - Monster

He makes Adolf Hitler look like Dora the Explorer. He won't even blink when it comes to killing someone, he could care less. - NerdyPweeps

In terms of fictional villains and how purely evil they are, no one comes even close

He turned evil when he was still a kid. He is such an enigma, a mystery I won't want to solve. A realistic villain. Truly frightening.

Nobody IN AN FICTIONAL STORY frightens me as much as johann, because of how real somebody like him could exist.

2 Frieza - Dragon Ball Z Freeza (Pronounced "Frieza" in the Funimation dub) is fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama as the primary antagonist of the Freeza Saga. He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is more.

He is the first! Pure devil❤My type❤

3 A - Pretty Little Liars

This anonymous being is an evil black mailer who won't rest until they 'take the Pretty Little Liars down. ' - NerdyPweeps


4 Homunculi - Fullmetal Alchemist

They are a group of horrible artificial humans who wouldn't care if they killed thousands of people in order to get what they want. - NerdyPweeps

They were more evil in Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. - Tia-Harribel

5 Sith - Star Wars

Spoiler! This group of bastards are so evil, they tricked Anakin to become Darth Vador in order for them to complete their master plan. - NerdyPweeps

6 Light Yagami - Death Note Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

He started out with some pretty good morals, but he let power corrupt him until he had no problem killing innocent people who got in his way

As soon as he obtained the Death Note, he went wacko and started killing thousands of people to 'cleanse the world. ' His other goal was to become the God Of the new world. - NerdyPweeps

Best. Character. Ever.


7 Aizen - Bleach

He is the best villain

8 Orochimaru - Naruto Orochimaru is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

He's the definition of evil. He experiments on children, he only cares about himself, and he thrives on destruction. He totally fits the title of a "villain".

He kills people then takes over their bodies. what. Evil to the max!

The best villian ever

9 Bill Cipher - Gravity Falls 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 more.

OK, this dude is the definition of messed-up. He's a multi-dimensional reality-warper who takes great pleasure in bringing pure madness to all he comes across. If you're thinking "oh, please! Bill's a Disney villain. How deranged could he possibly be? " Well, let me list a few of his insane deeds: manipulating numerous people from several planets & realities with false promises & possessing their bodies, turning a whole town into an apocalyptic wasteland of his design in about two minutes, attempting to randomly murder one of two twelve-year-olds, & swapping around all the orifices on somebody's face who had been offering to help him! This "isosceles monster," as Mabel put it, is definitely one of the most evil villains in the history of fictional media!

10 Dark Lord Sauron - The Lord of the Rings

He was the one who created the one ring who ruled them all, enough said. - NerdyPweeps

The Contenders

11 Vicky - The Fairly Odd Parents
12 The Joker - Batman The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics. Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, more.

Fantastic, sadistic, Extraordinary & a real genius, One of the villains the Hollywood has ever seen. Batman is his only genuine opponent. Other superheroes are no match for him. Hats off, Heath Ledger (Joker)...

13 Dio Brando - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Dio Brando is a fictional character from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series created by Hirohiko Araki. His name was inspired by musician Ronnie James Dio and movie star Marlon Brando.

This guy is almost literally heartless - xandermartin98

14 Naraku - Inuyasha

This little douche bag thought it would be fun to turn Inuyasha and Kikyo against each other because he wanted to take Kikyo out on a date, but she ended up dying in the process. Nice going buddy! - NerdyPweeps

15 Ragyo Kiryuin - Kill la Kill Ragyo Kiryuin is a fictional character in the anime television series Kill la Kill produced by Trigger. She is the mother of Satsuki Kiryuin and is the main antagonist of the series.

She is straight up evil and I don't like her one bit, and that is what makes her an amazing villain.

16 Scar - The Lion King 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.
17 Lex Luthor - Superman Alexander "Lex" Luthor is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.
18 Sugou Nobuyuki - Sword Art Online Sugou Nobuyuki is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara. He is the main antagonist of the Fairy Dance arc.

Whether you are a fan or hater of this series, I think everyone can agree that they all hated this despicable villain. Not only did he trap 300 remaining SAO players to use them in an unethical experiment, but he kidnapped Asuna and molested her to the point of her being on the verge of tears. He is a sadist and a pervert especially for licking Asuna right in front of Kirito. Thank god Kirito was able to kill this guy in the game and have him crying for mercy IRL. Anyways, Sugou has got to be on the level of Shou Tucker for being despicably evil.

Worst anime character I have ever seen in my life. The only characters I hate just as much as him are Makoto and Shou Tucker. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Sugou Noboyuki deserves to roast in the darkest pits of hell. Frick this guy. - TwilightKitsune

19 Sachiko Shinozaki - Corpse Party
20 Green Goblin - Spider-Man The Green Goblin is the alias of several fictional supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, mostly those starring Spider-Man.

21 Governor - Walking Dead
22 Medusa - Soul Eater
23 HIM - The Powerpuff Girls
24 Gus Fring - Breaking Bad
25 Percy Wetmore - The Green Mile

Sadistic pig! He takes a lot of pleasure in torturing others, but he can't take it when someone does something to him. I'm so glad he gets what's coming to him by the end of the movie. I HATE this guy!

26 Lelouch Vi Britannia - Code Geass Lelouch Lamperouge, whose real name is Lelouch vi Britannia, is the title character and protagonist of the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

At least he is not as evil as Light Yagami. I like Lelouch better than Light. Lelouch wanted to create a new world of equality for others and his sister Nunnally. Light, however, only wanted to cleanse the world of evil and those in his way and become the god of a new world, which is pretty selfish compared to Lelouch.

I am aware that what he did was for the greater good, but he was still a sociopathic war criminal anti-Hero
Who killed his own friends.

27 Sephiroth - Final Fantasy Vii Sephiroth is a fictional character and main antagonist in the role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII developed by Square.

28 The Major - Hellsing
29 Marley - Attack on Titan
30 Yami Marik - Yu-gi-oh!

Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, more.

Mark Hamill may have set the bar for all Jokers, but Heath Ledger has held the throne and crown for 10 years and 7 months, and has yet to be dethroned.

34 Emperor Palpatine - Star Wars Sheev Palpatine (also known by his Sith identity Darth Sidious and publicly as Senator Palpatine, then Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and later Emperor Palpatine) is a fictional character and one of the primary antagonists of the Star Wars franchise, mainly portrayed by Ian McDiarmid.

43 Howard Payne - Speed

Kurata's paranoid, evil and deceiving. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

45 Robert Haydn - Law of Ueki

He's bad.
He's paranoid.
He is a pain in the rear. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

46 Caesar Clown - One Piece
47 Arlong - One Piece Saw-Tooth Arlong is a sawshark fishman. He was the pirate captain of the all fishman crew, the Arlong Pirates and a former member of the Sun Pirates. He is known for being the main villain in the Arlong Arc and had the highest bounty in East Blue before being defeated by Monkey D. Luffy. Like many other more.

He's the most wanted man in the East Blue. He sees humans as inferior beings and is very cruel to them. He's also very greedy, valuing money over all else. But he's still cool. He's my favorite One Piece villain along with Caesar Clown. And being part fish, he has a great advantage underwater.

48 Christmas Critters - South Park
49 Raditz - Dragon Ball Z Raditz is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Like most Saiyans, he's mean, cruel and sadistic. In fact, he's so evil that he's willing to kill his own flesh and blood if need be. He also seems like the type of guy who likes to toy with his enemies before finishing the job. You must be evil kill your own family. But despite all this, I still love him. I wish he could have came back, have a change of heart, and made well with his family. I mean, he's Goku's brother and Gohan's uncle for God's sake!

50 Sir Crocodile - One Piece
