Most Evil Disney Villains

The Top Ten

Judge Frollo

This one was the most easy of the entire list. Forget Scar, Maleficent, Governor Ratcliffe and Cruella Deville, it is easy to say who the most evil of all the Disney villains is. Frollo was responsible for not one, but five terribly evil things which put his name as number one on this list.
- Killing a woman whilst she screamed 'Sanctuary' on the steps of a church. Back then, the church had immense power and murdering someone on a holy site was the HEIGHT of sacrilege. Killing a women on the steps of one, big no-no.
- Attempting to kill the said woman's baby. Yes, good ol' Frollo didn't want to stop there, no. He planned on dropping the baby in the well. Fortunately, the unsung hero of the story, the Bishop, interrupted with a song about how Frollo's soul would burn, the eyes of the angels and saints watching him, etc. And Frollo instead decided to do this next one.
-Raise a boy in the cathedral, not allowing him to leave, and convincing him that everyone would hate him if he ...more

This isn't even a contest. Despite claiming to be a soldier for God, he is easily the most demonic being that Disney has ever created. Just look at his list of crimes:

1. Attempted genocide of the Romani (gypsy) people.
2. Murders Quasimodo's mother.
3. His first instinct when he sees an ugly baby is to drown him with the intention of sending him to hell.
4. He is emotionally cruel and abusive to Quasimodo, raising him to believe that he is a monster and keeping him locked away. He just watches as the crowd torments Quasimodo at the Festival of Fools.
5. Is an expert on torture and seems to enjoy it. ("Ease up, wait between lashes. Otherwise the old sting will dull him to the new).
6. He sexually gropes Esmeralda.
7. He fantasizes about Esmeralda burning in hell.
8. Forces Esmeralda to choose between being his sex slave or getting burned at the stake.
9. Locks an innocent family with children in their house and sets the house on fire.
10. Burns down ...more

This guy is undoubtedly #1 other than Chernabog, but that's another case. While Chernabog is just the version of the devil for Disney, Frollo is a HUMAN and has done things nealy as bad as the devil. This makes him like the human version of the devil. The movie is underrated I recommend it to everyone. Hunchback Of Notre Dame is an overlooked masterpiece.

Of all the Disney villains Frollo is the only one who tried to commit genocide, murder a woman on the steps of a church, try to murder a baby by throwing it down a well, burn down the entire city of Paris for one person, burn an innocent woman at the stake, and try to own a sex slave. No other villain in Disney could match that

Scar 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.

I picked scar because he killed his (amazing) older brother because of jealousy. He also attempted to kill Simba 5 times (once when he told him to go to the elephant graveyard where he knew that the hyenas live and was hoping that they would kill him but it disappointed that Mufassa saves him, second in the stampede, third when Mufassa is dead and he tells simba to run away and when he does scar tells the hyenas to run after him and kill him... He actually simply says "Kill Him". Thenduring the final battle and when he put his claws on his paws (similar to what he did to Mufassa) and try's to throw him to the fiery ground to be burned alive and then at the end when he comes out of the fire with his claws stretched out) but you must remember that he caused many animals to die of they were starved because he messed up the circle of life. He is also disrespectful because he slapped Sarabi across the face making her fall to the ground and be unconscious for a few moments until Simba foes ...more

Scar betrayed his own family and killed his brother for the right of throne and destroyed his whole country

The Evilest Disney Character Of All killed his brother out of envy!

Inspired by Hitler, the most evil person of all history.
Voiced by Jeremy Irons, truly one of the most known and best voices of all time.
He killed Mufasa, making the saddest moment in Disney history and making his own nephew to believe that was his fault.
He has done something more brutal than any other magic powered villain has done EVER. He destroyed almost the entire Africa.
How can someone beat this guy?


Maleficent is the epitome of evil! Cold, elegant, classy and gothic, half fairy half Witch! She is self-proclaimed "Mistress of all evil" and prooves to be Devil related since she has all the Powers of Hell and Darkness which automatically makes her the greatest evil beiing in the Cartoon world!

Maleficent is beyond the pale of other Disney Gillian's in that she not only insanely evil and psychotically arrogant (wanted to murder a baby because she wasn't invite to the christening) she literally has "All the powers of hell" at her fingertips. Say what you will about all the others, but Mal stands at the top of the evil Hill.

Doing evil or harm; harmfully Malicious

Aside from the fact that her name itself is self explanatory after a fashion, and putting aside the typical powers of Hell quote, let's take this woman apart for what she really is.

Depending on what you've read/seen, Maleficent isn't even human. She's some sort of dark fairy (hesitant to use the term Witch due to connotations) with a serious psychological issue. The woman, if you can even call her that, sports a variety of deadly magical venues from which she can draw to turn five minutes into the worst day of your life.

Beyond that, Maleficent is one of three original Disney Villains with the power to transform herself through sorcery. Let's take a look at the other two.

Jafar: Cool. Dude transforms himself into a giant snake. Problem is: he couldn't do that before wishing for it. So yeah... His power was all granted to him by a genie. Oops. Oh yeah, ...more

The most evil.
I mean she cursed a baby because she didn't get invited.
She also has powers to destroy the whole kingdom with fire.

Chernabog Chernabog is a Disney villain from the 1940s film Fantasia, and in his segment, "A Night on Bald Mountain".

Chernabog is not your stereotypical villain. First of all, this guy is never given a reason to act evil. He just commits evil for fun, with no known justification. At least the ones near the top of the list could justify their actions in the eyes of a few people. Also, this guy commits atrocities that even Maleficent wouldn't dare attempt. Not only does he raise the souls of the dead from the surrounding countryside, he forces them to dance for him and then burns them in hellfire after they disappoint him. This guy manages to be evil to you even after you are finally resting in peace.

Chernabog is the darkest, scariest and most powerful Disney villain ever. Even though he does not speak, he is scary as hell and will haunt our dreams forever. He summons ghosts, monsters and demons, and has control over them all. His eyes creeps the hell out of me. He is also very huge, and he will come out of the bald mountain every night. He will also one day have the entire world in his total darkness. Chernabog for the world.

Ten Reasons Chernabog deserves #1
1. He is the devil
2. He never says a word yet still haunts your dreams
3. He is based of the god of evil and death
4. He summons evil demons
5. My theories prove he is the Horned King from the Black Cauldron's father
6. His eyes burn a hole through your soul
7. He is evil for fun
8. After his demons dance for him he crushes them with his fist
9. He is 60 feet tall
10. He is literally a mountain!

Chernabog is a mountian and he can raise the dead he is a ruthless leader..and also I agree with judge frollo being on the top because even chernabog had enof of him.

The Queen

She didn't try to kill Snow White. She tried to put her in a coma and have her buried alive, where she'd presumably live out the rest of a long life since she's only 14 and doesn't need to breathe. Presumably, the queen will even still be the fairest in the land (because Snow White is technically still alive even if she is 6 ft under), so it's not even as though the queen just wanted the mirror to shut up about her. She could have just sent her to another kingdom. She would have been the fairest in the land again and as an added bonus no one would be buried alive! Also, in the original story, she wanted Snow White's heart so she could eat it as well as feed some to Snow White's father. The Queen is a petty sociopath with magic. That's horrifying. And that scene where she's clearly locked someone up and let them starve to death/die of thirst? And the skeleton is just reaching for an empty jug? How can anyone think she's not the worst?

Over the most evil and sheer jealousy over Snow White, who happens to be her own daughter and is 14 years old! Makes her so evil, that's why she is maybe the most evil Disney Villain because not only does she want her dead, she has to manipulate a man to kill Snow White for no reason. She is so inadequate, condescending, neglectful and evil. Worst mother of the century. Also, she abuses her daughter emotionally and mentally. First ever Disney villain who is 100% evil and doesn't even deserve to live. If you don't love her just give her to someone else. She deserves better than you!

Although she doesn't possess any powers herself she has a whole book of evil spells. She is definitely my pick! She was so obsessed with the way she looked that she tried to kill Snow White twice. First she tried to get the huntsman to stab her. Then when she found out snow white was still alive she disguised herself as a creepy old woman and went to kill snow white with a poison apple. And snow White is her stepdaughter! She is so obsessed with being The fairest in the land that she tries to kill her own stepdaughter!

The evil queen from Snow White is my pick. Even though she's not as powerful as others, she's cold hearted, mean, and dreaded. She's my 5th favorite disney villain. But I find her the most evil.


Jafar is the best and my favorite disney villain of all time. Only scar comes close to evilness compared to jafar

This guy is like the greatest Disney villain of all time. I've seen many Disney villains like skirthead (skar),maleficient, shan yu, Ursula, Cruella de vil, hades, zira, turbo, kylo ren and many more. But you wanna know who's the cruelest one of them all? That's right! Jafar easily tops number 2 besides bill cypher. If this guy were to fight against scar and the hyenas, he would wipe them out in an instant. He and Bill Cypher would make the perfect team. He almost beat Aladdin but then he did something really dumb. He ordered the genie to turn him into a genie too but then he got sucked into that lamp and then the genie threw his lamp across towards some hills. He tried to hypnotize the sultan and kill Aladdin.

I LOVE jafar he is amazing villain especially in the new live action film
he is so hot in this one in 2019.

Jafar is wickeder than scar. He should be at least #3. #1 should be bill cipher because he can crush planets. #2 should be judge frollo for killing people. #3 should be jafar for being able to hipnotize people and manipulating them.

The Coachmen

This guy should be #1! If anyone forgot how evil he is I suggest you dust of your Pinocchio movie and watch it again. This scumbag kidnapped hundreds, if not thousands of young boys by luring them to pleasure island. After getting the children to smoke and drink they got transformed into donkeys. He gathered them up and stripped them of their clothes so they could be sold to places like the salt mines. The ones that could still talk were left until they couldn't or were used to pull his own personal stagecoach. This wasn't the coachmen's first time doing this either. Who knows how many boys he's kidnapped and sold throughout the years? This guy not only destroyed the lives of the children but also left the lives of the families in ruin. Mothers and Fathers forever wondering where there sons have disappeared to. The coachmen has very little screen time but from what we see of him we can know he is a grade A class turd and is the most evil disney villian.

He enslaves children and destroys their humanity for profit, and is implied to be demonic in nature. The fact that he is never stopped serves to make him that much more effectively horrifying and despicable.

He turns little boys into donkeys and sells them to salt mines, and he doesn't get any comeuppance

He is completely evil and dangerous character especially the goons the glowing white eyes was really spooky


In my opinion, Shan Yu has never been given enough credit in these lists, then again, neither has the film, Mulan. True, Maleficent tried to kill a baby, and true, the Evil Queen did try to kill a girl simply because she was prettier than her, but, in terms of evil, neither come close to Shan Yu.
Shan Yu is a bloodthirsty warrior. He had a total disregard for human life, even enough to make a a cruel joke out of killing fleeing soldiers and completely destroying both villages and its innocent occupants. Men, women and children. That's definitely evil in my books.

While many villains have tried to kill before, few are as ruthless and cold blooded as Shan-Yu himself. He couldn't have cared less about human life, and he likely killed thousands before Mulan stopped him. I always try to see the good in everyone, but Shan-Yu was truly a monster.

Shan-Yu should be closer to the number one spot. This is because he has killed so many people. He kills a messenger, an army of soldiers, innocent men, women and children. We even see that Shang's father is dead and a doll which belonged to a little girl, which was so dark. Also, he abducts two messengers and just kills one of them in satisfaction. He is blood thirsty, brutal, ruthless, agressive and down right evil. Also, his choice of becoming evil is to take over China which is far better than any other reason. This shows that not only is Shan-Yu evil he is a disney villain he needs so much recognition.

Tons of implied death, from soldiers to a poor little girl, all because the Great Wall challenged his strength. I know many more Disney villains have more flair... but when it comes to actual evil, Shan-Yu is one of the few monsters who approaches Frollo's level of evil.

Ursula Ursula is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated feature film The Little Mermaid.

Ursula, the very name is spooky. It means she bear, and she definitely shows it by her care for her minions. Let's begin, she is a special kind of evil, she creates deals like Rumpelstiltskin, she can hypnotize her prey, she doesn't even need a staff like Jafar. Even look at her lair, who do you think killed that beast? Ursula! I marvel at her ability to strike fear into her foes, even in King Triton himself. If you ask me she is the number one villain of all time. Also, yes indeed she is fat, but take her tentacles into perspective, she can squeeze the life out of six pitiful poor souls at one time. Also, the color of her tentacles... BLACK the very color of evil and mystery. Also, the rest of her body is purple, people come on, the color represents creativity and magic. We all know that she possesses some of the most recognizable dark magic of all time. She is so creative that she tricks Prince Eric into believing that she was the woman of his dreams. So, not only did she steal ...more

Where do I begin, She stole Ariel's voice, tried to steel her girlfriend and succeeded in the original story, failed in the current story, turns king Neptune into a polyp steals his triton and tries to kill Ariel.

Ursula could be more evil than Jafar because she stole something from Triton. She grows even bigger towards the end of the movie and wanted to kill Ariel but that all failed as Eric drove the ship inter her and she was also struck by lightning and sunk with the ship to the bottom of the sea.

I think Ursula is the vilest because she made Ariel not be able to talk. Now I am going to tell a random fact. I saw a video called "if Disney princesses wore realistic makeup". It had Ariel and she was on that part where she was on that rock and she had the wave is the background,and one has the nice makeup that she has in the movie and one had Ariel with like running mascara and like bad makeup

Horned King

Raises an army of undead warriors and tells them to destroy everything in their path. Should be number 1 even though I agree frollo is also terrible.

John Hurt did an epic job of emphasising just how evil this guy really is. He will stop at NOTHING to get what he wants, even if it means killing off innocent cuddly creatures and sacrificing children.

He definitely is pretty evil. He looks like a devil to me but too bad he thinks that his power cannot die but he is wrong; he died all right.

He looks evil but he practically did nothing evil the entire movie.

The Contenders

Bill Cipher 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.

If any of the other Disney villains (actually, in my opinion, if ALL the Disney villains) gang up to fight against him, he would simply snap his fingers, and EVERY SINGLE OTHER DISNEY VILLAIN WOULD BE OBLITERATED IN 2 SECONDS. For goodness sake, he's too low on the list. Let's compare him to some other Disney villains.
Maleficent- no doubt she's pretty powerful. Especially with that dragon form. But if she met Bill Cipher, she'd be lucky to work for him as a maid.
Jafar- again, quite powerful. Against Bill Cipher, he'd serve as a butler.
Hades- can't kill him? No probably. Rip him apart molecule by molecule. See how he enjoys life as an electron
Ursula- skip. He'll beat her so quickly it's not even funny
Chernabog- ah, the big bad bat-demon! I have no idea whatsoever where the rumor of him being THE MOST POWERFUL DISNEY VILLAIN even originated from. He's probably only as strong as Kryptos, Eight-ball, or maybe Zanthar. Against Bill Cipher, he'll definitely ...more

If he met the other bad guys he will kill them all in 1 sec. he is a overlord he's eviler then Hitler and cannibals.

He murdered Billions, if not trillions, of people, incinerated his own dimension and universe, and controls the Nightmare realm, the interdimensional crawl space the size of the entire Disney Multiverse. He is ruthless, and is not above murdering children in front of their own relatives. In fact, he possessed the body of a 12 year old boy, and was going to kill the boy's sister, and then throw his own body off a water tower to make everyone think it was suicide, as stated in journal 3. He uses the remains of cosmic beings, such as Time Baby, to salt his margarita. He is composed of quantum energy and nigh omnipotence and nigh omniscience, and is literally free to do whatever he wants. He is feared by the entire Disney multiverse, as his very existence poses a threat to them. If he ever met Scar, or Frolo, he'll probably rip out their eyeballs and eat them, before drinking their blood, murdering their families, and hanging their corpses as decorations. Also, he's insane. What a great ...more

Come on! He DESERVES To at least be in the top ten! He invaded the mind of someone who is most likely 60-80 years old and possessed the body of a TWELVE year old boy. AND HE IS THE SYMBOL OF EITHER THE ILLUMINATI OR EYE OF PROVIDENCE. Don't you see what I am talking about? This guy is pure evil!

Cruella De Vil Cruella de Vil is a fictional character who appeared in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians, Disney's animated film adaptations 101 Dalmatians and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure, and Disney's live-action film adaptations 101 Dalmatians and 102 Dalmatians as the main more.

how is Cruella de vil not number one? she kills dog's people totally evil.

This one was easy. Just search up 'dalmatian puppies' on google images and, considering that your heart isn't made out of stone, you will understand exactly why Cruella De Ville earned a spot on this list. Not only has she got a terrifying rage-face, but she tried to murder puppies. PUPPIES. Now, don't get me wrong, I've heard the whole, 'well, you eat cows and sheep and chickens, don't you? What's wrong with eating dogs/guinea pigs/monkeys? ' Well, here's the thing. First off, she doesn't want to eat them, she wants to WEAR them. Plus, they're puppies, so hey, if you have a problem with my decision, you and your heart of stone can go.

Cruella is in my opinion the most cruel and crazy villain that Disney already created. She didn't want to harm the good guy or the girl for power, money or greed like others. She just wants to kill 99 puppies dalmatians to make a coat. If this is not the pure evil, what will be then?

Why is Cruella De Vil not #1? She wanted a bunch of puppies for their fur coats! And "Devil" is in her name!


Hades should be number one he did not kill a king like scar did he killed a god a GOD

Hades is the most hilarious, most short- tempered, and the fastest talking villain EVER! He's the voice of James Woods for crying out loud! One thing that I love is his hair: it turns red when he loses his temper, it flares (but stays blue) when he's excited, and it can go out!
"Whoa! Is my hair out? "
Well, enough of details, and let's just make it one strong and simple belief: HADES IS THE BEST!
"Yes! Hades RULES! "

For crying out loud... Hades tries continuously to kill his own nephew Hercules and his brother, Zeus... not to mention, he's hilarious! And seriously, this guy is the LORD OF THE DEAD, okay? The devil. Can't get any more evil than that.

Besides being the devil and one of the disney villain leaders, he tried to kill his own nephew, former slave, brother and sister in law. He is also angry all the time and considerd as the most angry disney villain.

Oogie Boogie

He is the shadow on the moon at night, filling your dreams to the brim with fright.

I like this villain

Like my dad minus the last two!

A gambler, Serial Killer, Canibal all in one!

Mother Gothel Mother Gothel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 50th animated feature film Tangled.

Killed thousands of people by hoarding the life flower, Kidnaps a baby from a caring mother and father, uses her for her hair, locks her in a tower for 18 years (364 x 18 = do the math. ) and never let's her go outside, when she does go outside tricks her, stabs her boyfriend, and made fun of her for eighteen years. Not only is she oozing with pure evil, she practically is evil!

Narcissistic, self centered cold hearted. Locks up girl for 18 years, fills her mind with lies about the world, stabs a person she barely knows and is willing to keep the girl forever just for her hair. THANK HEAVENS EUGENE CUT THAT HAIR!

She killed and stabbed people. And she stool a baby for there parents! Scary women!

Was willing to do ANYTHING to stay young and beautiful forever

Percival C. McLeach

McLeach deserves to be among the tops, because he is dark, cruel, sinister and sadistic. He first of all made the rangers believe that Cody had been eating, after that he threatened Cody with some knives and even throwing some knives above Cody's head. And the most evil part was that he was really going to feed Cody alive to some dangerous Saltwater Crocodiles, and he would have succeeded if Bernard never had interfered. That makes McLeach one of the 9 darkest and most evil Disney Villains ever, while the others are Frollo, Sykes, Judge Doom, Scar, Maleficent, The Horned King, The Coachman and Chernabog.

This guy more than well deserves a spot on this list, because he's a greedy poacher who LOVES killing and will do whatever he has to in order to get filthy rich. By the end of the movie he even attempted to feed Cody to the Crocodiles. And he has his own twisted way of singing "Home on the Range". He's cold and sadistic and loves it. He definitely makes a good villain.

Percival C. McLeach is far more evil than most of the other Disney Villains. He should be at number 1. He tried to feed Cody who was a little boy alive to some Saltwater Crocodiles, that is completly sadistic.

Nothing personal boy, but I wouldn't want to disappoint the rangers. They was looking so hard for ya, and now... they're gonna find ya!

Gaston Gaston is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast.

When he fell to his death with his knife, and didn't die of fall damage , the wolfs would have finished him off

I don't think gaston is really evil as much ass his really a great big jurk

Tried to kill the beast because Belle liked him. He is more jelly than the PB

The reason I think Gaston is the most evil villain is not because of all of the villainous things he does but because he is so manipulative. He can manipulate and convince anyone (Except Belle) to do anything he wants, the way he convinced that crowd of people to kill the Beast that fast is terrifying he has so much power over the regular harmless people that he will do what he wants wether it is good or bad and he has everyone's full concent.

Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear

This is a truly tragic villain we have here.

A truly nasty piece of work

I like to call him Lots o killin bear or lots o betrayin bear.

Lady Tremaine

Yes I agree 100% with Frollo. But Lady Tremaine must be 2nd. She's evil with no powers. She tourtured a beautiful young innocent girl for many years. She made her a servant for a long time. She made a deal with her and broke that deal by letting her daughters tear that dress she knew cinderella worked hard for. When she figured out she was the one at the ball she locked cinderella up in attic where the duke wouldn't find her! She even broke the slipper right before cinderella would try it on. Don't forget in the sequel where she gets ahold of the magic wand and casts a spell where the prince doesn't reemember Cinderella just for selfish reason. This woman is underrated for evilness and I say she is at least top 10

She is a selfish woman and punishes Cinderella by assigning her extra chores.

Abuses Cinderella

oh my so evil poor cinderella

Bill Sykes

Who? That's right, Sykes. For those of you who don't even know who the heck this guy is, I'll give you a quick catchup.
He not only threatened and blackmailed a hobo (and his dogs), forcing him to do whatever he wanted, such as steal and kidnap, but he also did some of the dirty work himself. True, he never killed anyone, not in the film anyway, but he kidnapped a small girl and held her for ransom. Also, he has always creeped me out.

He's one of the more forgotten ones, but he's actually really good. Unlike many Disney villains he's a modern one. And he gives a good representation of the underground world. Loan Sharks (Him being one), the Mob, etc. Seedy people who you don't want to get involved with or cross. Unless you wanna wear concrete shoes at the bottom of a river.

I like when he and his dogs explode in the subway

Very evil and very underrated. He needs more recognition.

Doctor Facilier

Voodoo magic. Also from the princess and the frog, the best princess movie.

He's cool and makes you think of classic Disney villains

Dr. Facilier is epic. I mean he controls voodoo spirits for crying out loud. that's thousands of Chuckie dolls.

Facilier's evil alright because he's known as a sorcerer. He turned Tiana into a frog. At the end though he is frightened to see his friends on the other side which drag him to death.

King Candy

Why did you post him twice did you know that king candy is turbo in disguise

Why is he on this list twice?

One of the most dangerous and awesome villain I'v ever seen. By far the best in my opinion.

Governor Ratcliffe

Most evil. He is a racist

He always is greedy. He loves gold. I like him too.

He’s creepy


I mean seriously I did NOT expect that wow! So so startling they should have made a more you know like a hyena or jaguar or something but certainly not a sheep.
