Top 10 Most Memorable Disney Animated VillainsMegaSoulhero Remember when Disney made great villains? Those were the days. But at least we still remember them very well. So here are the most memorable Disney animated villains!
The Top Ten
He's my favorite. The most evil and the BEST Disney villain. Screw Scar.
This guy is pure evil. The first thing he does in the movie is kill Quasimodo's mother and then tried to drown him as a baby in a well. That's pretty damn dark, especially for a Disney movie, and its only 5 minutes in. The rest of the movie he essentially keeps Quasi prisoner in Notre Dame, claiming he is raising him and convinces him to never go outside because he is a monster. And this is before Esmeralda enters the picture, who Frollo disturbingly lusts over, including sniffing her hair (its as perverted as it sounds). And then there's Hellfire, without a doubt the darkest song Disney has ever produced, where he decides if he can't have Esmeralda, she will be burned at the stake for 'witchcraft.' And there's also his attempted genocide against the gypsies, the burning of innocent people because Esmeralda escaped, and the attempted murders of Esmeralda, Phoebes and Quasimodo. This guy is so much more evil than any other villain. And worst of all, he claims he is a good-hearted ...more
I can't stand him.
A lot of Disney villains are evil only in terms of their stories. A lot of their actions aren't "evil" per say. They just hurt the main characters. Frollo is a villain who's evil in real-world standards. He's a seriously demented person who is willing to do absolutely despicable things for his own gain. He's just a monster. So yeah, he's really memorable. - phillysports
Claude frollo is only creepy, scar is downright terrifying. Claude frollo kills a mother and attempts to kill a baby, scar killed his own brother and almost kills his Nefew. Claude frollo lusts after someone, scar lusts for power and actually succeeds. Claude frollo fell into a pit of fire, scar was eaten alive AND burned at once! If you think about it, scar is way darker than Claude frollo.
You! Are nothing but a evil wicked idiotic backstabbing black yellow green orange brother!
Thank you for respecting my opinion. I'll respect yours if you respect mine. If you don't like what I say, then don't reply to my comments at all and just avoid. I have the right to my free speech.
I should at least be number 2 - LionLink
Is she the greatest? Well that's debatable, but is she the most memorable? I can confidently respond to that with a big yes. - Anonymousxcxc
Maleficent put the cool in evil. As cruel as she may be she actually stands as quite the powerful and independent role model. She is a hard worker, and has a creative mind. Specially with Disney's new "Descendats" "Descendants 2" and the maleficent movie starring Angelina Jolie. Her backstory does show all reasoning on poisoning Aurora. She has good intentions. She has reasons. Other Disney villains have been doing all this for beauty and selfishness. But maleficent has a broken heart. That shows her true colors, as evil as she was, we should always forgive broken hearts. She was the one who saved aurora, got her a prince, and took all the blame. Cause I don't know if y'all watched "Maleficent" (the movie) but it all gets explained there. Netherless, Maleficent rocks! -Anonymous
Yeah I think she is the most memorable because, even if you just see horns and even just a shadow of horns you immediately think its maleficent
She DESERVES to be number one. I didn't even know who Claude Frollo was until I saw this list. Maleficent is just more iconic. - VanessaAmezcua
That mole though
Is it wrong that I wanted Ursula to win in the end? You know you made your main character unlikeable when the villain doesn’t seem like the bad guy. I wonder how many lists I can make in which I bash Ariel. Anyway, Ursula really is that great of a villain! From her sinister look to her evil laugh to her determination, she’s just so awesome! Seriously! Why did Ariel think making a deal with her would be a good idea? The moment when Ursula really shows how frightening she can be is during the climax when she turns giant! She looks like a real threat and even speaks in a deeper more intimidating voice! Ursula may be evil, but she is a memorable and likeable character! Unlike Ariel! - MegaSoulhero
Jafar because he's weird and EVIL!
He is probably 40-60 years old and threatens Jasmine 16-20 year old woman to marry him HAHA! He also tortures an old man that is very odd.
Hercules has a T.V. show, there is a crossover episode where Aladdin, Princess Jasmine, and Jafar come to Hades and Hercules. - WorldPuncher47592834
Only 4 months until I see the Aladdin Broadway musical! Jafar is one of my favorite Disney villains and a lot of people seem to agree! His overall appearance is enough to make us feel a little nervous whenever he appears on screen. It also makes me wonder why the Sultan ever trusted him. He acts serious through most of the movie, but can also be pretty psychotic. Like in the climax. His evil laugh is crazy! And when he turned into a snake, I kept thinking that Aladdin didn’t stand a chance against him! Truly a memorable villain! - MegaSoulhero
The sultan trusted him because one, he was hypnotized, and two, he was an ignorant idiot. - Anonymousxcxc
I love him he’s so funny!
Dude look at her - poopin
I completely agree with what MegaSoulhero commented. The Evil Queen was the first Disney villain, and is very memorable because of that. - TheFourthWorld
When I sleep...i can't stop thinking about this villain! she's my favorite one because she's really creepy at all
The Evil Queen was the very first Disney villain from the very first Disney movie! And she is very memorable mainly because of that. She wants to get rid of Snow White because she’s jealous of her looks. Kind of a weak motivation, but her determination alone is what makes her so great! She hires a huntsman to end her and she even transforms herself into Meryl Streep and feeds Snow White a poisonous apple. I also like how throughout most of the movie, the queen doesn’t smile. She always looks so serious in an intimidating way. And then when she turns into the old hag, she just becomes creepy. I always found that to be pretty cool. They made her frightening in two different ways. Which is why she is such an iconic villain. - MegaSoulhero
Him + Jafar - WorldPuncher47592834
He's hilarious, especially when he gets angry.
He is actually really good
Hades is one of the only good things about Hercules. I actually kind of found him funny at times. He’s the only character in the movie that actually made me laugh. He’s not just funny though. He can also be very frightening. Especially when he’s angry. He literally turns red with anger. I may not like the movie he’s in, but Hades was definitely the highlight. My only negative is that he believed Pain and Panic when they told him that Hercules was dead. But being the ruler of the underworld, couldn’t he have checked to see if Hercules’ soul was with the other souls? Other than that, he really stands out as a great villain. - MegaSoulhero
Best Villain ever! Scar sucks. - asantalo
Chernabog is my absolute favorite Disney villain! He is just so dark and has fun with it! He is quite possibly the scariest villain Disney has come up with. His whole scene in Fantasia has such a frightening and dark tone. It’s among one of the darkest scenes in Disney history. The design of him is very impressive! But the problem is not too many people seem to mention him when talking about great Disney villains. I guess I can kind of understand why. He doesn’t have a lot of screen time. He only appears for the one segment in the movie. But that segment really showed how dark Disney can get! I wish Chernabog got more recognition. - MegaSoulhero
CRUELla dE VIL. She has these two words in her name so she is really evil.
If she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will. You know a character is evil when they have the word “cruel” in their name. I mean, she attempts to capture a bunch of puppies so she could turn them into accessories! That is so mean! As a puppy lover, this makes me very scared. Some of her facial expressions really show how terrifying of a person she is. I saw the live action film and even though Glen Close did a pretty good job, it didn’t come close to the genius of the animated version. I personally thought this version was a lot more evil. The live action version of her was more silly than evil. Cruella De Vil is one terrifying villain. - MegaSoulhero
He's definitely a favorite of mine. I'm glad he's never killed off. He's hilarious!
I was gonna make a very inappropriate joke involving the word “hook” but I’m gonna try to keep this list PG. Captain Hook is my favorite Disney pirate. Sorry Jack, but Hook is far better. Out of all the Disney villains, he is the funniest. He constantly tries to defeat Peter Pan, but it usually ends up backfiring in a very cartoonish and comedic way. It’s very entertaining to watch. And with his sidekick, Mr. Smee, we are guaranteed to get a lot of comedy from them. The comedic timing is absolutely perfect! I haven’t watched Peter Pan in a long time, but Captain Hook is the most memorable thing about it. - MegaSoulhero
You don't remember her for her evil deeds but with her failed schemes
She's so comical.
Dr. Faciler so ivellnes
O come on this bitch is the best
Those eyes are the ones who made Cinderella obey her because it brings nightmares. - Ohno
Personally I don't consider her a villain character because she's nothing more than a total a**hole to Cinderella
He's just terrifying!
I only put him on here cause he's the most memorable part of The Black Cauldron.
She wanted Rapunzel's hair to keep her young forever. Without it, she is old.
The way he flipped out when the toys came after him was definitely memorable. Funniest part in the movie, in my opinion.
He literally kidnapped little boys, imprisoned them in seclusion on a shady ASF island, gave them cigarettes that turned them into donkeys forever, and then sent them into the slave mines to be sadistically tortured. If that's not evil then I don't know what is. - Anonymousxcxc
He's pure evil. When I was young, he ALWAYS creeped me out. I even had insomnia and nightmares. He's still really scary now! - Ohno
I love Tigers! They're so awesome!
One of the most deadliest enemy.
His acting was terriffing in the jungle book
He is so memorable
he was so scary
This guy is just terrifying! And ruthless!
Redeemed - Bikerninja1997
Sure you never see him, but that scene is easily the most memorable part of Bambi. - LarkwingFlight
How could you forget any of the characters from this movie, actually? - LarkwingFlight
OFF WITH HIS HEAD.
Evil, but hilarious!
He's by far the most evil villain in the Toy Story series, displaying no redeeming qualities whatsoever in contrast to Sid and Stinky Pete, making him more evil than the two of them combined.
Why is he here twice
His death was terrifying, though.
He was voiced by VINCENT PRICE for crying out loud!
Well how is Stromboli and a whale outstrength him? ok
He is a Policeman. His name is Seamus O’Hara
