The 10 Most Evil Villains In Video Games


The Contenders: Page 4

61 The Doctor (Cave Story)

Everyone who's played Cave Story hates this monster. He is the definition of "animal cruelty".

62 Angus Bumby (Alice Madness Returns) V 1 Comment
63 Master Hand (Super Smash Bros Series)

Mater Hand is the boss of all villains and he is the main character of SSB series as he is the creator. He is more than bowser, ganondorf, wario and wolf as they are under his order.

64 Pyramid Head (Silent Hill) Pyramid Head (Silent Hill)

The impure materialization of your dark-evil self and is in the 72 place... shame that kids of 15 to 40 years enjoy fear in the body of mario and other silly villains...
This is hatred in corporeal form it can't be defeated until you defeat yourself!

65 Astaroth (Soul Calibur)
66 Ares (God of War)
67 Lavos (Chrono Trigger)

Its a giant alien parasite who invades worlds, destroys them, and creates a new generation to carry on. This is not a villain who just destroys humanity; this is a villain that works over the course of millions of years in order to achieve its goals, and can cause infinite destruction throughout every planet that supports life in the universe. There is no kindness, mercy, or remorse of any kind. There is just destruction. - Salnax

Pretty much any villain whose bread and butter is killing entire civilizations to feed their own appetite is a shoe-in for this list. I've racked my brain for ways to best describe this spiny interdimensional butcher, and I've finally settled on this metaphor:

The Zerg Overmind with a time machine. - Mr_Vorhias

Lavos is Just pure evil he causes humanity's downfall, makes a creepy screech when confronting him destroys planets so that the only thing that's is left on earth is a few humans (who've lost the meaning of hope) and ruins of old citys and domes where surviving humans rot.
Worst of all: LavosShows no emotion or remorse and
He doesn't care he causes struggle for our main characters (although lavos is a good villian) but because lavos is so evil defeating him is extremely satisfiying

68 Ridley (Metroid) Ridley (Metroid)

Out of the villains that Nintendo has to offer, Ridley may stand out to be one of the most vile there is, especially when one takes in account of the manga detailing the origin of Samus Aran. He led the attack on Samus's colony and was responsible for the death of her parents. And he enjoys that aspect. He exploited the naivety of young Samus to lure into a false sense of understanding and nearly killed had it not been for Samus's mother pushing her out of the way. Years later, Ridley reveals himself to Samus and his mere presence causes to go into a PTSD due to that incident. And he takes pleasure of that. Ridley mocks her state and proceeded to tell her the gruesome details of how he has eaten the corpses of colonists, especially her mother. He also murdered a good number of the Chozo, Samus's adoptive family, shortly afterwards. At his core, Ridley is a psychopathic monster with no qualms of killings. He has no grand ambition like Mother Brain in taking over the galaxy nor truly ...more

This guy is amazing. He killed Samus's parents, leads the stinking Space Pirates, and has been hunting down Samus for a long time. I don't want him at 1, but let's get him higher. - bubbles1111

He's cares for no one, he killed Samus's parents and leads an army of blood sucking space pirates. How much more evil can you get than that? - lewieboy124

69 King Boo (Super Mario Series) King Boo (Super Mario Series)

He Never Dies Does He? He never takes things seriously, unless it's after-life threatining. In Conclusion, He's awesome. -

Why is King Boo so low? He's eviler than Bowser. - thelegendaries101

Sorry I did not vote 4 you

I know!

70 Solidus Snake (Metal Gear Solid) V 1 Comment
71 Cesare Borgia (Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood)

First of all, he (SPOILER ALERT) killed his own father to gain power of Rome, and all of Italy, using the apple of Eden and all of Leonardo the Vinci's weapons to take over Italy. Taking over Montergionni to take the apple, Cesare makes sure Ezio is there to see his Uncle Mario be shot, right in front of Ezio. He also completely pushed his wife, Lucrezia out the way in the game. He eventually tries to take Italy by force, planning insane attacks. He goes to jail after a attack, and breaks out and plans another attack, where Ezio kills him by throwing him off a wall. Cesare is very selfish, evil, and wants to be the king of the world.

72 Hojo (Final Fantasy 7)

Yes, yes, it's oh-so-obvious to put Sephiroth on this list isn't it? After all he tops just about every damn evil villain list you can find. Well beans to that, I say. Sephiroth's not on this list, instead we've got the evil scientist responsible for putting that god complex into Sephy's mind in the first place.

And that's just the icing on the cake for this guy, not to mention his contempt for his fellow man, (Shrugging off countless Sephiroth clones that killed themselves to make it to the Northern Crater) lack of scientific ethics, (Mercilessly experimenting on Red XIII, attempting at Aeris, and near the end of the game even himself. ) and that creepy slumping forehead of his that makes him look like Mr. Burns. - Mr_Vorhias

Nearly everything bad happening in FF7 can be traced back to Hojo being a complete bastard without any rhyme or reason beyond "science"

73 Dracula (Castlevania Series)

Pure evil.
Betrayed his best friend.
Wishes to bring eternal darkness.
Wants to destroy God and humanity.
Immortal and can seemingly never be truly killed.
King of Vampires and ruler of monsters.
Can turn into a demon
One of the hardest bosses in any video game series.
His own son wants him dead.

74 Frank Fontaine (Bioshock)

I'm a tad disappointed at how many people voted for Andrew Ryan, because in all, Atlas was the mastermind behind the collapse of Rapture, like it's not even a question. Fontaine Industries created the plasmids which corrupted the city, and he practically went to war with Ryan. Everything terrible Andrew Ryan did was in retaliation to Frank Fontaine. ~Spoilers~ I shouldn't even have to mention the fact the it was Frank Fontaine that made the protagonist to do his bidding,and was leading the him on a crusade against Andrew
"Would you kindly..."

75 Dr. Robotnik (Sonic) Dr. Robotnik (Sonic)

This is basically dr. Eggman - Jimmy033

76 Cyrus (Pokemon)

Wanted to use Pokemon of Time/Space to destroy and recreate the entire universe without emotions and him as a God.

Insane, dark and a truly great villan

Wow, liked evil in the world, this is amazing!? in a game!? yes!

77 Harbinger (Mass Effect 2)
78 Zeus (God of War2)
79 Imran Zakhaev (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare) V 2 Comments
80 Dr. Wily (Mega Man) Dr. Wily (Mega Man) Doctor Wily, full name Albert W. Wily, is a video game character and the main antagonist of the original Mega Man series.
