Top Ten Large Videogame Villains

Videogame villains are meant to be intimidating, forces of nature that are very hard to beat. So scaling up the big bad in a game will only make them even more intimidating, probably making them harder to beat.

Quite a lot of villains are large, but which ones are bigger and better? Find out in the Top Ten Big Videogame Villains. Keep in mind that this is not a ranking of their size, it's about how good they are at being villains.

The Top Ten

1 Bowser (Mario Series) Bowser (Mario 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.

Large and in charge, need I say more?

Bowser is - if not the - one of the most iconic villains in media. He has many tons of appearences as the main antagonist in countless Mario games. I also find Bowser to be a good villain, despite coming back to the same ol' methods of capturing the princess. He can be shown to have a heart sometimes and he is quite the likeable villain in my opinion, although he is here for the iconic factor alone. - DapperPickle

He might always lose but he still has some great boss battles like in the galaxy games 3D land and Odyssey. - Randomator

He's not just large, he's a big, bad, fat*ss dragon.
I think.

2 Malus (Shadow of the Colossus) Malus (Shadow of the Colossus)

I have never played Shadow but by the sheer scale of this villain I had to include him. I heard he is very popular too so I stuck him on number 2 since I don't want to leave him out. - DapperPickle

3 Zeus (God of War III) Zeus (God of War III)

Ditto with Malus, I am not familiar with God of War, but I do know Zeus is the main antagonist and people constantly praise this game, so why not? From what I've seen he looks like a good villain for Kratos to fight. - DapperPickle

4 GLaDOS (Portal Series) GLaDOS (Portal Series) GLaDOS is a fictional artificially intelligent computer system appearing in the video games Portal and Portal 2. The character was created by Erik Wolpaw and Kim Swift and voiced by Ellen McLain.

Ah yes, GLaD0S, a classic Valve antagonist. She is hilarious, intelligent and diabolical all at the same time and it is great. Of course she is very large - DapperPickle

5 Ridley (Metroid Series) Ridley (Metroid Series) Ridley is a villain from the Metroid series and a character from the Super Smash Bros. series. He's Samus Aran's archenemy and has been fighting her since day one with the first Metroid game in 1986. When Samus was three years old, Ridley murdered her parents in front of her.

Metric or metroid it's ridley

My current profile picture is K.Rool because I love him so much. I love how thearical he is with his getups, I love the bulgy eye that represents his insanity and overall he is just brilliant, kruel villain. Some of you say he isn't large but look at DK64, he is over 3 times the height of DK! - DapperPickle

8 Cronos (God Of War)

Zeus isn’t exactly the biggest, but this guy is. - Not_A_Weeaboo
