The 10 Most Evil Villains In Video Games


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Wolf (Star Fox)
102 Flowey (Undertale) Flowey (Undertale) Flowey is a flower in the RPG Undertale. He is the first character you meet, and also your best friend.

This is a man (flower?) who has lost all joyous emotion, who has no soul anymore. A vile creature, cursed with the ability to reset save files, to relive the world over and over. A vile creature who became bored with the same dull people who's minds he worked meticulously into. Who's only source of amusement left is watching the world BURN.

We all fear Flowey. But even worse, we fear becoming him.

FLowey should be in the third... Flowey not only wants to destroy everything, but DIRECTLY traps the player in a save file for an impossible boss fight. And he stalks you the whole game and breaks the fourth wall... at one point, he even says he wants to see himself rip you into bloody pieces, over and over, because he saves you right before. He even logs you off and seemingly glitches your game.

I, for my personal opinion, consider him one kickass villain. He cheats you at the beginning, keep stalking you through all the game, breaks the forth wall many times, satisfied that he can kill you for the eternity just for reloading your save file. He may not be the most evil guy here in the list, but he sure is an unique one.

Not exactly a villan, but super great!

103 Volgin (Metal Gear Solid 3)

How does this monster have more votes? This is a list for the most evil villains, not necessarily the best or most "badass" villains.

Liquid, Solidus, Big Boss, and Ocelot at least have redeeming qualities. Not so for Volgin, who within a minute of being introduced, nukes his own comrades for the hell of it - a contingency that would lead to the US taking the blame, necessitating Operation Snake Eater so The Boss could be framed as a terrorist and (needlessly) eliminated by Big Boss to prove his country's innocence - losing his own innocence in the process, and turning him against his government. All of this would've been entirely avoidable if Volgin wasn't such a sick seeking to turn the Cold War hot.

Volgin's a Bond Villain who unfortunately came into possession of electric superpowers and limitless wealth, so he could unleash his sadomasochistic power fantasies on a global scale. There was nothing more cathartic than shooting rockets at him and watching his ...more

Only 57? This is the compete sadist who smiles at the sight of the ones he intimidates. He kills his own men violently... Obviusly not many people have played MGS3. I think if you saw him, you'd see what I'd mean.

104 Lusamine (Pokemon Sun and Moon) Lusamine (Pokemon Sun and Moon) Lusamine is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She is the head of the Aether Foundation.

For being the first female villain in a core series Pokemon game, Lusamine does her role well. Out of all the villains I have seen in the series, Lusamine has to be the one that went past the moral boundary the most. She abused her children, dressed herself up and her own daughter to look like Ultra Beasts (the very thing she was obsessed with), froze Pokemon (yes, she FROZE them) in order to preserve them like dolls for her collection, didn't care about Cosmog dying when she used it to try to open up an Ultra Wormhole, and most of all, literally transformed into a monstrous entity in Ultra Space. Dang, it's almost like Game Freak took inspiration from the anime Kill la Kill and used Ragyo Kiryuin's character to make a character similar to her. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I really hope ends up at a decent point on this list. Herr entire storyline was absolutely brilliant, and the things she did were unexpected for a Pokemon game.

105 The Elder God (Legacy of Kain)

A nightmarish Cthulhu-like creature, it's debatable whether the Elder God is in fact a god, but he's managed to convince a whole lot of people that he is. Whatever the case, he whets his appetite for evil throughout the series by driving the humans and vampires of Nosgoth to war against each other, parasitically feeding off of Nosgoth's Wheel of Fate, (A supernatural lifecycle) leads the naive protagonist Raziel on every which way, basically sending him after anything that could possibly be forseen as a threat to him...

Pretty much every event that led up to Nosgoth's downfall into an apocalyptic wasteland can be traced back to the Elder God.

It's at this point now that I'd like to submit forth my theory that any villain that's voiced by Tony Jay is a complete badass. - Mr_Vorhias

106 Sirrus (Myst)
107 Vergil (Devil May Cry 3) Vergil (Devil May Cry 3)

He tried to kill his own brother just to gain more power, enough said.

I agree

108 Smithy (Super Mario RPG)

It's one thing for a person to just want to take over whichever world the video game is set in, (If we were to include every single generic megalomaniacal villain in video gaming on this list, it would stretch for miles. ) but you have to be pretty damn evil to take the pleasant topic of wishes, and want to replace them all with weapons.

There's no better metaphor for it: It's akin to setting baskets full of kittens on fire. - Mr_Vorhias

109 Molluck (Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee) V 1 Comment
110 Junko Enoshima (Dangan Ronpa) Junko Enoshima (Dangan Ronpa)

This chick is 100% messed up. The following is just the proof of her pure evil that we know about: She singlehandedly created the apocalypse, murdered her own twin sister in cold blood, trapped all her former classmates in their school-turned-survival bunker that they had created to escape said apocalypse, wiped two entire years from their memories, & forced them to brutally murder each other while turning the ensuing chaos into a reality T.V. show. And for what reason did she cause all of this? Just to satisfy her own creepy obsession with the despair of herself & others...SO WHY IS SHE ONLY #122 ON HERE?!

Needs more votes. Junko is pure evil. She even says it herself.

One word: Despair.

If you are looking for a deceptive and somewhat demented mastermind type of villain... look no further. This despairately sadistic beauty deserves a spot in top 10 of this list.

111 Mr. Burns (Simpsons Arcade)
112 Kamek (Super Mario World) Kamek (Super Mario World) Kamek is a common enemy in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He usually appears in New Super Mario Bros. Games, Super Mario Bros. Games, or other similar games. He also appears in spinoff titles, like Mario Party, in which he is not a playable character but creates an obstacle for the players on their way more.
113 Ghirahim (The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword) Ghirahim (The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword)

Guys, I found David Bowie! - shawnmccaul22

Because he is just. SO. FABULOUS

Yeah, ganondorf is scary and whatever, but he really has nothing against ghirahim.


114 Kai Leng (Mass Effect 3)

First off, he's technically indoctrinated so he probably doesn't qualify. Second, he's so IRRITATING. Really, Kai? You're gonna brag about what a badass you are for letting me kick your ass in three seconds and hiding behind an invincible gunship to recharge your health? Nothing quite so sweet as taking him down in the end.

115 Kazuya Mishima (Tekken)

Though originally appearing as the main protagonist in Tekken one, He soon became one of the most cruel and unusual characters and became one of the series's main antagonists along with the evil entity inside him called "Devil". He seeks for nothing but power of the Mishima Zaibatsu. Who could forget his evil smirk? Or his laugh? Plus he's just so god damn awesome.

116 Ogre (Tekken 3)
117 Rez (Gex: Enter the Gecko)
118 Mother Brain (Metroid)
119 Scorpion (Mortal Kombat)
120 Penguin (Batman: Arkham City) Penguin (Batman: Arkham City)
