Top Ten Game Antagonists That the Game Would Just Not Be the Same Without

The Top Ten

1 Bowser (Mario Bros. Series) Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first more.

Without Bowser, the Toads would just be happy and Mario and Luigi would be happy. And Peach and yoshi would be happy, and goomba and koopa would be happy. And Daisy and Rosalina would be happy. There would probably be more and that's not Mario-like. There also would be no Bowser Jr. or koopalings.

I can't imagine Super Mario without Bowser. He's just a classic villain. - Garythesnail

Bowser is the only male in the series

2 Purple Guy (Five Nights at Freddy's)
3 Dr. Eggman (Sonic the Hedgehog) Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.

Although I do not like his name, it is a major villain

4 Master Hand (Super Smash Bros.)

He is a classic

5 Dr. Wily (Mega Man) Doctor Wily, full name Albert W. Wily, is a video game character and the main antagonist of the original Mega Man series.
6 King Dedede (Kirby) King Dedede is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

Wouldn't be the same without him. Even though he hasn't been ill-intentioned lately, he's still one of my favorite characters. - Garythesnail
