Top Ten Most Evil People in History
The Top Ten
I do think what he did placed him at the top of the list, but I believe he was truly a very smart man and used his power in a negative way.
Absolutely right. Hitler was a genius. A corrupted, completely evil genius.
This man killed millions of people because of their religion, and tried to take over the entire world. 17% percent of people voting for Justin Bieber? Moreover, Justin Bieber IS NUMBER TWO?! Sure, he makes bad songs, but other people on this list killed millions of millions of people. Justin Bieber could never be as bad as that. Never.
People saying he shouldn't be in the worst leaders, say he was intelligent but you forget he was evil, you can be both. Unless anyone on the TheTopTens is over the age of 90 no one here was around when it was WWII. Including myself. So people who was around in WWII could probably disagree with you if you think he was not one of the worst leaders.
Actually you could do things like reading the diary of Anne Frank.
If you still think Hitler shouldn't be in the worst leaders, put yourself in Anne Franks shoes reading the diary.
Him being at the lop of the list is certainly justifiable, but he was a genius. A corrupt, evil genius.
There are a lot of things that prove that Stalin is worse than Hitler. Both of their girlfriends committed suicide. By all accounts Hitler was very sad and possibly crying, but Stalin didn't care about his dead wife, he didn't even go to her funeral. That shows that Stalin was more heartless and soulless than Hitler. In fact, I have read a lot about Hitler's normal life. Outside the war and Holocaust, he wasn't all bad.
"outside the war and the holocaust he wasn't that bad" in other words "outside of killing millions of people for their religion, race or sexuality with little to no warning with the intent of wiping out their entire kind, he wasn't bad" that was literally the worst logic I've ever read.
He killed more people than HITLER! COME ON! You weirdos need to pay attention in history class.
He came before Adolf Hitler, and people who objected were killed, or sent to siberian camps.
His only good quality was that moustache. Wait, no, scratch that, even his moustache was evil
This guy has to be the worst human of all time. He's so evil that, do you even call him a human? What the heck is he? Vlad Dracula, what is this guy? Getting enjoyment out of women, children, babies, Animals, sick people, poor people, And innocent people all getting impaled, burned alive, etc? This is PURE EVIL. He's so evil that, he can't even be classified as a human. Even Hitler, you can say he's the worst human of all time but Vlad?! What the hell is he?! What is he?! He can't be called a human! He's lower than the worst! What is he?! What is this "thing?! "
Inspired bram stoker to create dracula... Which pretty much invented the vampires of today.
Picturing his execution tactics made me want to vomit. Did you know that he killed people by having a dull spear slowly pierce through your belly-button? Yeah...
He killed people slowly and painfully over days people!
This should not be #9! It should be #2! (Only because even though he was evil, he was not as evil and didn't kill as much innocent people as Adolf Hitler! Here are some reasons why this guy sucks!
1) If it weren't for this moron we would all have been in freedom now from the Afghanistan war!
2) He looks really ugly! Don't even think about looking up a picture of him! I hate his beard, I hate his face! I hate all his guts! I hate everything on him!
3) He was responsible for 9/11 and other Al-Qaeda Attacks like the Train Bombing in 2004 and other stuff!
4) He's the leader of the Al-Qaeda! Plus he started it!
5) I cannot believe he lived up to like 54 years old! It's good that president Obama sent Navy Seals to murder him, But He didn't deserve a long life!
6) He talks like an idiot (Even though he doesn't speak English) He says stuff like Much Burrah Hack Barrah, I don't know the rest!
7) He's a spoiled brat who always wants things ...more
You should forget about how he looks. Only care about his actions. Agreed he was by no means a good man. He was a terrorist who took the lives of many in the events of 9/11. He really deserved the painful death he got, maybe even worse than that.
While I completely agree that Adolf Hitler was a very evil man, he had a multitude of disorders that made him think the way he does. He really couldn't help being born the way he was. If he wasn't he could have been one of the kindest and most positively influential people in all history. I voted for Osama because he had no mental disorders. He actually wanted to destroy all of the world because of his religion. Instead of getting into to much detail about my views on the world, I'm going to end on the statement that Osama Bin Laden was, in his time, the most evil man SINCE Adolf Hitler. If you disagree feel free to add whatever comments you wish above, because in all honesty you are entitled to your opinions as am I. Thank you for letting me share my thoughts on your website.
The man who was responsible for 9/11 and, as a result, the War on Terror, which is still going on as of 2020.
This dude was responsible for 9/11, restricted all freedom a man could have for sake of a religion, caused an unnecessary bloody war, etc...
Really? Bush is number 3 but the man who was solely responsible for murdering the most people in the 20th century is number 19? Bush, the man who did what he had to after his country was attacked by terrorists, is evil enough for top 3 but Mao's 60 million murders doesn't come close
This guy is ten times evil than Stalin and Hitler.My grandfather survived Japanese army that invaded China, but died because of Mao Zedong's so-called the great leap forward.He was called out to build the railway, not only him, but also my oldest aunt, however, who was only about 14 years old.What could such a child do for that hard work? So my grandfather in fact did two persons' job.And most important what he fed was with very poor quality.Thus my grandfather became weaker and weaker, at last he was sent back carried by two people because he already couldn't walk that time.After several weeks, he died.Mao Zedong, the most evil guy, he also had to commit to my mother's diease, my mother suffered a lot at her childhood too! I hate communist party, forever! What's notable is that people killed by Mao Zedong are actually more than whom are killed by Japanese.So now as for me, or us, if Japanese aren't offensive, we can't be friends;if again they try to do something they did to China, ...more
That's really sad, I hate him too, but communism isn't bad, it's just that most communists are also dictators, dictatorship sucks, though.
Mao Tse-tung is the worst dictator in Chinese history, no I mean the entire history of humanity.
He killed way more than Hitler and Stalin, and most of his victims are his own fellow Chinese. His disaster Great Leap "Forward" has killed and starved many, his Cultural Revolution not only resulted in millions of deaths, but his so-called Cultural Revolution has also inflicted severe damage on Chinese culture and made majority of the mainland Chinese people pure materialists!
Furthermore, during the Second Sino-Japanese War, he not only didn't actively fight for China, but he and his commies fled and just waited for the Nationalists to be weakened by the war. (According to some sources, he secretly collaborated with the Japanese during the war) After the war is over, the ROC army suffered major loss, and Mao Tse-tung and his men showed up and began the Chinese Civil War. Some years after he (illegitimately) occupied mainland China, he even thanked the Japanese for invading ...more
The man responsible for the Great Chinese Famine, the deadliest famine in history, which was a result of his Great Leap Forward campaign.
WAY worse that Justin beiber. Honestly he killed so many people
Pol Pot should be at 3 he killed thousands of people for no reason really at all
Did he have problems or something? Sorry I don't know anything about him but by the look of his comments He 'killed people for no reason' it sounds like he has a problem...
Only person in history that was responsible for a genocide in his own country
Heinrich Himmler created the Final Solution, and unlike Hitler, he personally orchestrated the deaths of over 10 million people, thus putting him ahead of Hitler.
The head of the Schutzstaffel (SS) and one of the highest ranking Nazi leaders, this was the man who planned out the Holocaust: the mass genocide against the Jews that resulted in over 6,000,000 deaths.
THe master mind behind the holocaust. Maybe doesn't deserve to be the most evil of all time, but I voted for him because he definitely deserves to be higher than George Bush and Osama Bin Laden. And of course Justin Bieber, who was put there by dumb trolls.
He was actually sometimes there to see the Jews die and I'm sure most of you know that he created the idea of the final solution (extermination of the the Jews) and turned Auschwitz into a jew extermination camp (to exterminate jews) therefore he is more evil then Adolf Hitler who should have been put third evilest person (after stalin leader of soviet russia.)
He slaughtered babies and killed people by using the lead sprinkler which involved pouring molten metal or silver In the victims eyes or ears and after he was finished killing a hundred thousand men he took their wives away to be sexually assaulted he was probably considered the most evil man in history before stupid Hitler came along since he killed tens of millions of people and he tried to conquer the world. He killed 7000000 people in one massacre and one million people in another.
I may not be able to sleep after reading the bit about molten metal.
There is no need to explain, he killed millions upon millions of people, and his execution tactics are truly... a new pet peeve of mine to say the least.
Khan and his hordes killed 40 million people -- at the time, that was 10% of humanity. But during the First Mongol War, the Vietnamese kicked him out! The great lesson of Vietnam: Stay out of Vietnam!
He actually unknowingly saved the environment, his killings and invasions caused areas to be reforested
Way to go. A bastard who enslaves his own "paradise" he calls North Korea, where prisons are labor camps and there is no Internet access whatsoever. He has people executed or punished harshly for simple stuff that shouldn't even be illegal. And he bans pants for women. Seriously? Christians, prisoners of war, criminals or people who simply want to escape from North Korea are all placed in labor camps, where they are forced to work their ass off 10+ hours in farms. They suffer merciless tortures, beatings and are murdered by guards randomly. And Kim Jong-Il has the nerve to just sit on his pile of money and laugh it off in his palace. He kidnaps other people, motivated by his own personal interests. And he has the entire North Korea think he is a "God". Him and his father are both tyrants and what the hell is Justin Bieber even doing on this list?
Horrible leader. He had everyone in his country thinking that he's the second coming of Christ. He outlawed all religions. He was hugely homaphobic and outlawed homosexuality. He banned people from leaving the country or from accessing any information from the outside world. He forced thousands of people to work on collective farms with starving wages including children and senior citizens. He imprisoned thousands more for speaking out against his inhumane regime as well as they're entire families in what can only be described as concentration camps. He had people regularly tortured. He refused to give food, water or any sort of medical attention to anyone who was not in the "glorious people's army". He clearly had his ambitions on brutally invading South Korea, possibly with nuclear and/or chemical weapons. He kidnapped South Korean families to take them to North Korea, where they would most likely be tortured. His propaganda machene was so terrible that only a child would believe ...more
The leadership in North Korea disgusts me. Firstly I'm a socialist and what they do over there is nowhere near what socialism is about. Socialism is about equality for EVERYBODY. this guy lives like a king while children in his country are starving to death. My god, he is so disgusting as a person and a leader. I feel so bad for those in North Korea, they have a vain, pompous psychopath as a leader. And I might point out that their juche philosophy is not even socialism but fascism mixed with bits ripped off from Leninism. And while were on the topic how is Justin Bieber higher than Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden? I agree his musics awful, but if you think he is worse than all these mass murderers you are a spoiled capitalist brat who knows nothing of the real world.
What do you mean 12, he should be number 2. This bastard is also the enemy of his own country. Responsible for the North Korean Famine. The one who terrorized America with his nuclear power. Cruel too but don't mine
Well, firstly I need to pinpoint the fact that most the names on the list are well politicians and Bieber (who has been put on it primarily for being him._.) but needless to say all of these people are not good but if you look at it from another prospective you should see that in leading nations is not a piece of cake.it takes courage bravery smartness fearless heart and sometimes no heart at all.. Apart from the fact that power can change a person a soul this in no means justifies taking lives that aren't ours and that's why they are on this list.
I just want to remark that there was humanity in these 'creatures' and it emerges when saddam executed 20 men of his own army for molesting a girl from one of the lands he invaded, well maybe it just shines, regardless of the execution I think that was pretty nobel again that does not defending him in any way it's just to awaken our sense of sympathy and humanity because it's most needed now than when those "monsters" and "creatures" ...more
This is the case of a really evil man who needed to be stopped. Imagine destroying entire village just because army needs to try out a new chemical weapon. It's OK, Kurdish people aren't worth much anyways, right? Yes, that was Saddam Hussein's way of thinking. And it didn't happen like one time or few times.
Saddam is the the worst human beeing in the world! I can't even call him a human! This man took all young boys from a family with long origins from Iran and killed them all and you can't even find where are their bodies! He destroyed Iraq! Without his ignorance leading Iraq wouldn't have become the way it is right now! And absolutely thanks to the united state governments who collated with him for making Iraq the place in which you can confron only fear of death! People of Iraq has lost all their young children, they haven't seen happiness after all the things he did! Well there are people who actually love him bcs he did only good things to his people not all the country! He took all the young people who doesn't even know what's going on And cutter their head off on streets! He is evil!
Sure,the weapons rumors were false,but he started the gulf wars,among other things
This guy killed Gandhi how is he ot on the list!
This selfish dude runs a country, enslaving his citizens and executing people for every little mistake, or- not even mistake, just an opinion, a thought, or an action. All citizens impoverished, and his country so corrupt that they don't have a seat at the UN.
Call me weird, but I don't think Kim Jong Un is purely evil. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure we'd have a new pearl harbor incident by now. And President Trump would probably be dead. He's definitely more evil than George W Bush, though.
He is so selfish, and he has threatened to bomb the US with NUCLEAR WEAPONS
Look at dat face. He must have seen this.
But seriously, this guy is the spawn of satan.
This dude was pure evil. When he killed people he kept their bodies in his fridge so he could look at it and laugh! He even executed his enemies on LIVE T.V.
The Butcher of Uganda. Is a known cannibal, kept his victims' bodies in his fridge so he could laugh at them, executed his enemies on live TV, and dumped some of his victims into the Nile River. Ultimately killed over 500,000 people. This guy was the worst Ugandan leader, and arguably the worst African leader in history.
The butcher of Uganda. He belonged in a mental institution, not a position of military and political power.
This man should be in the Top 10, He is a known cannibal, He dumped some of his victims into the River Nile, He kept his enemies in his freezer, and His body count is over 500,000
Should be ahead of trump it shows how stupid society has evolved in obama and bush years
He needed hair
How is trump Above mussolini? , liberals
ALthough he was pretty bad, he laos did pretty good things too
Stabbing his son, killing millions of people, and killing his daughter in law! He is evil! But I agree Hitler is more evil.
He's on here twice and his other name (Ivan The Terrible) Is lower.
I hate how everyone goes on about hitter and think he's the most evil man in history just because he started world war 2 but he thought he was doing a good thing! He still is very evil but Ivan the terrible is 100 times worse he tortured and killed men women and children by removing their ribs with red hot pitchers, disembowelling, boiling, fring, skinning be beheading hanging strangling them. He also buried people alive and killed hundreds of thousands of people. He beat his pregnant daughter in law causing a miscarriage. When his son heard of this he confronted him but Ivan killed him.
The fact that this man was never executed for his terrible crimes is beyond belief!
Bush screwed up everything. He definitely shouldn't have been president.
He can't even lie to us the right way! He sucks at public speaking, and it surprises me that he even got into office!
He got into to office from a mix up or someone else pulling the strings.
He's probably the most evil in my opinion because of his bad decisions as president that screwed up the country and even started a war. All the people that died in the wars to follow his rash actions, American or otherwise, I stand by you.
I also think that it was extremely disgusting to put Justin Bieber on the top evil people list. I could see putting him on the worst musicians of all time, but evil? Seriously? Whoever posted that needs to get themselves checked out, because putting a teenage pop star up next to Hitler is inexplicable.
He definitely knew previous information before the actual happening of 9/11. The official government story doesn't align with the accounts given by the victims. One of the worst presidents in U.S history, by far.
What can be worse then invading another country for no good reason and on top of that not even having any knowledge of that country! Because of that, few hundred thousands of people have died. I heard of an evil genius, but this guy is an evil idiot!
This guy burned down his city and blamed the Christians. He then burned Christians alive and used them as street lamps.
Nero set fire to Rome so he could make room for his new palace then blamed the fire on the Christians which ended in the killing of the Christians, when he got married to his second he gave her his first wife's severed head in a basket as a wedding gift, he had his second wife kicked to death when they had a argument, he said he was a god and if you disagreed you would end up in the sewers, Nero had a pet " gluton" a Egyptian slave that would eat anything even other humans!
He was said to have laughed and played music while watching a fire that destroyed a large part of Rome.
Having Donald Trump and Justin Bieber ahead of Nero is laughable at best. Nero plotted the death of his mother, set fire to Rome and played a lyre while it was burning and murdered many Christians including Paul and Simon Peter. Many Christians referred him as the Anti Christ. And a pop star and a business man is higher than a insane psychopath? And where's Caligula?
He burnt down Rome, killed his mother, and used Christians to light hi roadways.
So, Hillary Clinton is considered more evil than Josef Mengele, a guy who experimented on people, sewed people together to create conjoined twins, injected dye into people's eyes to see if they changed color and shredded people's testicles? (I'm not making this stuff up)
A complete monster who performed horrible experiments on the prisoners of Auschwitz... He would do things like sew twins together in an attempt to create conjoined twins and inject chemicals in twins eyes to see if they changed color. One of his favorite experiments was to inject one twin with lethal chemicals or a strain of a deadly disease, thereby killing them, before killing the second twin so he could compare their corpses. He would also kill people with heterochromatic eyes so he could remove their eyes and send the eyes to Berlin for study.
Have you heard of "The Human Centipede. " The plot of that sick, twisted movie was inspired by the experiments that the Nazis performed on their prisoners, and the villain of the movie was based on Mengele himself.
I can't express how much I hate this guy's guts. He should at least be in the top twenty.
he looks like if a Fortnite kid traveled back in time and got revenge on people bullying him for having a default skin so he murdered people
Did horrific experiments on Auschwitz prisoners, created conjoined twins, injected chemicals into people's eyes, and so on. He needs to be higher.
How is he not in the top ten? He killed people for no good reason, threw infected bodies over city walls, destroyed several cities, and even told his men to collect the corpses' ears in order to prove that they were all dead. Just messed up.
Well the infected bodies things was an effective medieval tactic, while gruesome it is still cool. - Stalin
Attila just killed everyone in his path nonstop. He is the worst person of Medieval History.
I think he is worst than castro
He is a barbarian who destroyed rome
He's on here twice
His other name is closer to the top :/
Man why so low
He’s lower than Justin Beiber...LOWER THAN JUSTIN BEIBER! - IceBearRules
He's a mixed bowl, but definitely not the worst in the world.
Ooh I love him! He tastes so good as a sundae!
Napoleon was not evil, he simply was a man, with greater ambitions than any other. He deserves respect and love while simultaneously receiving scrutiny for his actions, yet he is the one true leader of France, a man of Corsican descent who learned in his heart a love to make that nation great like no other in history.
He wasn't evil at all at least for people who understand him
The great works he did are incredible
And understanding his deeds is a work too big for little minds
If he wouldn't have fallen down
We would see a world today
He was responsible for the genocide of masses of Congolese for the expansion of Belgian and European industry. His colony in the Congo, which was operated more by his kingship than by the government of Belgium, made Congo and the central African region what it is today. People blaming Kony for the slaughter of innocents would do well to read "King Leopold's Ghost" to see how the atmosphere where small-scale warlords like Kony could thrive in was created.
Well I think it's self explanatory, rise your hand if you don't know what I'm talking about, oh that's right
He killed more people than were linked to Hitler, and got away with it in his life until the end, dying anyways, taking all the wealth for himself, not even Belgium, HIMSELF! Not even spoken of the countless hands he cut off.
Before Hitler, King "Coverup" slaughtered ten to twenty million in his personally owned Free Congo State. Why? To speed the production of natural rubber, suddenly a wide open market with the advent of the bicycle and automobile. It's also noteworthy that he rewarded his enforcers in peculiar fashion -- paying out bonuses for dirty deeds evidenced by body parts.
His brand of mayhem was the inspiration for the methods employed in the Rwandan massacre.
I'm glad he died. It saddens me that he is one of the people who gave my religion (Christianity) a very bad image.
The one person who is hated by every religious person, every atheist, and every agnostic.
Whether you're gay, Jewish, Christian, atheist, mussle, American, etc... He thinks you diserve to die and
suffer. He has a five year old girl sing these songs that are morally disgusting to begin with. He has disowned children of his that decided that they don't want to hate everyone. Tuley he is the most horrible person on earth.
That's ironic that he wishes Americans died yet he was American.
He thought gay people would go to hell.
But he's the one who went there.
He better be burning in hell. Literally created the biggest hate group in America and destroys every logical man's brain cells.
In my opinion this was the best leader the world has ever had.Cuba is what it is because of him.I have a lot of repeat for him.Long live Castro, down with the forces of imperialism, down.
He's a very controversial figure, largely due to the false perception of him created by the communist paranoia in America. His roll in history also ended up somewhat muddled with Che Guevara's. The truth is that no leader can be perfect, there will always be the good things they do and then the horrible things they do, whether they wanted to or not. Lenin is idolized by many, but that doesn't mean he got off Scott free from some pretty awful things during the revolution, but he still managed to improve the state of Russia during his brief rule (granted everything went downhill after that). It's the same with Castro. Obviously a revolution is no happy go lucky thing, people end up getting their hands dirty whether they like it or not. However, Cuba was in a pretty awful state before the revolution. Cuban citizens suffered greatly under the oppressive capitalist rule, and while things are still iffy in Cuba, but what did you really expect? A utopia? The current state of Cuba is greatly ...more
I guess only Americans would put Castro (as well as Ho Chi Minh) in this list. Just because they've beaten the Yanks, does not make them evil people. In fact, I'd say it makes them heroes.
Why the hell is he here? Castro may not be perfect, he's done some bad things, but he saved Cuba from the CIA and US rule! He's done a lot of good, so why is the 16th most evil person ever?
She has been labelled the most prolific female serial killer in history and is remembered as the "Blood Countess," though the precise number of victims is debated. The stories of her sadistic serial murders and brutality are verified by the testimony of more than 300 witnesses and survivors as well as physical evidence and the presence of horribly mutilated dead, dying and imprisoned girls found at the time of her arrest. She and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls, with one witness attributing to them over 650 victims.
A lot of the higher-rankers killed more, but political reasons can at least be strategy, even if it's bad strategy. Bathory bathed in the blood of her victims in order to look younger. There is no way, even in the most demented mind, that her looking younger was going to help more people than it hurt.
They created so many legends about her brutal, cruel and so bloody "exploits".
Really creepy woman-evil
At least 650 girls died in her hand. That is a HUGE body count.
He took advantage of being north Korea leader and tried to take south Korea
hello I am a chicken I eat mud and seeds and I am on tinder as mr chicken ok bye
He should be replace his son, Kim Jong Il, because he started the Korean War, which divided North Korea and South Korea, and he turned North Korea into an evil, tyrannical state. He was a horrible human being.
He was a puppet of Stalin who eyed an invasion of North Korea when he started his nation in 1948, then he wanted to invade the peninsula with his army, which lead to the justification of UN sending their troops along with America. I really think he should be above Trump because he made bad decisions that led him into a war with allied nations. He is also responsible for starting the Kim Dynasty that has ruled North Korea for many decades to present.
