The 10 Most Evil Villains In Video GamesMr_Vorhias A brief explanation before we begin. There have already been countless lists of the best villains in video games in the past, and chances are there are no two that are alike, but I like to think that my list is different in some aspects because I haven't let things like popularity of the character or the game it's in influence my decisions.
Here are some stipulations I set:
- The character cannot be evil by any sort of outside forces influencing him. If they had a rough childhood, if they're out for revenge, if they're being forced by a more powerful villain, he's disqualified from being on the list.
- The character cannot at some point have assisted the protagonist.
- The character cannot show any sort of remorse, guilt, shame, or otherwise any sort of human traits towards their misdeeds.
- If the character believes they are doing good, they are off the list. I offer some compromise to that rule with any robotic, or computerized characters, who generally don't believe in good or evil, but "necessity."
So as you can see from these guidelines, I wasn't just looking for evil.
I was looking for EVIL.
Originally this was meant to be a top 20, but since I can't post anymore than 10, here're the runners up:
Chances are you aren't gonna agree with EVERYTHING on the list, but isn't that what makes lists like these great anyway?
Anyway, here's the top 10:
The Contenders: Page 2
No remorse for any life in the Galaxy. Brought about the destruction of Galactic Civilization every 50,000 years for countless millions of years. Uses deception and any resources without second thought to achieve its goals. It's so evil that it seeks nothing except the destruction of all life, period.
Pure evil, with dire intentions even beyond comprehension... - Savastano20
Pretty much every line Sovereign has says "I am evil", and everything he/she/it/whatever says the same. Sounds shallow, but somehow they pulled it off.

And it only has one primary directive in mind: Your crushing defeat. - Mr_Vorhias
Yes, you will follow the ball, yes you will bounce it back, BUT THIS GAME'S BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS! DIE, BATTERY, DIE ALREADY! - Oreanta
A heartless villain, who's only intention is to get the ball behind you. It shows no mercy. It will never stop until it wins. It doesn't care about you, it's a madman, and you can't mediate with it. Bouncing the ball past you is more than evil.
Quite possibly the most sick, cruel, twisted, sadistic, brutal, and evil villain in fictional and nonfictional history from the past present and futureV 7 Comments
Shao Kahn is complete evil in a nutshell. He is brutal, experienced, deceiving, hard to stop, and has one intimidating look.
His brutality is well known and feared. As game play wise, he has powerful attacks from his sorcery, which makes him totally noob proof. In story wise, he is the devils parasite. As a conqueror, Shao Kahn's power is underestimated because the people of Earthrealm fall for stereotyping that he is limited by the rules of Mortal Kombat and he plans to stay like that. But no, Shao Kahn is intelligent from his back ups in case his plan fails. As winning tournaments is not his profession, invasion is. He is worthy of invasion, he conquered Edenia, a realm that everyone thinks was better than Earthrealm except Shao Kahn. He finds Earthrealm's ability to easily transport to other realms more valuable then what the luscious Edenia had to offer. His thousands of years of knowledge in combat makes him skilled, but the main reason why he is experienced is his ...more
Shao Kahn IS the villain of the MK series. He is unstoppable, ruthless, cunning, heartless, power hungry, bloodthirsty, and responsible for the most suffering in the series. Fun fact: He was literally unbeatable in MK2 so the game developers had to make him easier to defeat.V 1 Comment
Hitler from 1008
He can kill people with their own sins.
Metal Sonic was created to max out Sonic's power in every aspect possible, and it WORKED!
Metal not only can be faster than Sonic, but he also has electricity beams, brief invincibility, and the ability to take power from the Chaos Emeralds. If that isn't enough, Dr. Robotnik/Eggman made sure that Metal would be able to catch up with Sonic whenever Sonic got stronger.
Thus, he is able to copy the date of the badniks and use it against Sonic. And when he gains enough power, he turns into Metal Madness/Overlord, which has missiles, fire, and the ability to fly...
Whether he's on Eggman's side or not, whenever you cross his path, you'd better be pleading for mercy! - screebee
M. Bison is what most people think of when they think Street Fighter Villain. unlike Akuma, whom is hardly a villain (he sits in a neutral area bwteen good and evil, an anti-hero at best) M. Bison does what he does to further his own plans, which often involve subjugating the planet under a ruthless dictatorship. his own power, Psycho Power is pure negative energy, and only be used once you expel the 'goodness' from your soul. on top of that, he enslaves people, whom he uses for nefarious purposes. all of the characters in street fighter hate him, and to me that signifies a good villain. not the best by any means, but I think he deserves a higher ranking in this list.
"Burned Alice's home with her parents still alive in it, raped her sister, and brainwashes children into becoming emotionless husks to auction them off in human trafficing. Bumby's actions are downright antisocial."
Wester vs glados
Well this seems wrong. 22 for Liquid? The guy played you into activating REX in Metal Gear Solid. He tricked everyone into believing that he was Miller, he took over Ocelot and stole RAY and then he took over the Sons of the Patriots nanomachine systems. He deserves to be at least number 2 on this list
don't know how he was missed out, was a class act
Liquid is just a badass. It's a sin just not to have him in the top 10.V 1 Comment
They don't care if they die, they just want to destroy everything you've ever made. They're most evil thing there is.
I love creepers! They're not villains! They're just lonely monsters who wants to hug! :'(
Hiss... BOOM! I hate creepers!
They do not want a hugV 2 Comments
This thing is EVIL. It destroyed humanity but kept five alive for more than a hundred years so he could torture them every day. - dark2025
How dare you say that about Alduin?! He is VERY villainous! Ugh, some people.
He's definitely a bad villain. he takes so long to kill
The Thalmor are better villeins than Alduin is.
I think he is the worst villian of all time he will kill you in reality the eat your soul in sovengarde that double dead.he's the worst villain of all time he will literally eat the world he has a endless hunger to the piont where he will die to.
Raghu is so evil and Apollo powerful he defeated everyone in supersmash bros at once in one move except for DD Luigi and nes it's only because of them 3 and Kirby that the rest weren't amibos (Kirby had a badge that unamiboed him. - MarvelcampomWWE
