Top Ten Most Insane Villains

aman28
This isn't based off how evil they are. It's based off how INSANE they are. Which is probably why most of your favorites (i.e. Darth Vader) aren't listed. These are those freaks who we could tell just didn't have it all together up in their skulls.

The Top Ten

1 The Joker - The Dark Knight The Joker - The Dark Knight The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics. Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, ...read more.

So difficult to choose between The Joker and Hannibal Lector! I love them both, I mean they are both really insane and both actors won an Oscar by getting in the skin of these characters... God Dammit! Sorry Anthony, Heath was just a little more insane than you... I'm really sorry.

Joker is by far the most insane villain I've ever seen or heard of. Sorry to all the other guys on this list, but joker has you beat on the insanity scale by a lot. To those who created the Joker, you guys DEFINITELY hit your target right on the head.

what doesn't kill you, only makes you stranger - biscuits

2 Alex DeLarge - A Clockwork Orange Alex DeLarge - A Clockwork Orange

Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well. To what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this surprising visit?

3 Hannibal Lecter - Silence of the Lambs Hannibal Lecter - Silence of the Lambs Dr. Hannibal Lecter is a character in a series of suspense novels by Thomas Harris. Lecter was introduced in the 1981 thriller novel Red Dragon as a forensic psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer.

I know Buffalo Bill said it, but regardless:
It rubs the lotion on its skin, or it gets the hose again.

A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some favorites beans and a nice chianti.

Yup, totally insane.

4 Michael Myers - Halloween Series Michael Myers - Halloween Series Michael Myers is a character from the Halloween series of slasher films. He first appears in John Carpenter's Halloween as a young boy who murders his older sister, then fifteen years later returns home to murder more teenagers. ...read more.
5 Cannibalistic Mountain Men - Wrong Turn Series
6 Buffalo Bill - Silence of the Lambs
7 John Doe - Se7en

Though, he's calm and calculating when he wants to be, Doe is one of the most far gone movie villains, and unlike most on this list, he actually thinks he is doing the right thing- he kills people in grotesque ways and sees it as some sort of vigilantism in the name of God ('God works in mysterious ways').

This guy makes the Joker pale. Sure, the Joker is a terrorist, but this guy kills people in the most gruesome ways before leading up to one of cinema's greatest endings.

8 Jigsaw Killer - Saw Jigsaw Killer - Saw Jigsaw is a character from the Saw series. He first appears in Saw as a man whose wife passed away. After that, he did lots of tests on people.

do you wanna play a game?

9 Kefka Palazzo - Final Fantasy 6 Kefka Palazzo - Final Fantasy 6 Kefka Palazzo is a character in the Final Fantasy series of video games. Originally designed by Yoshitaka Amano, he appears in the 6th installment of the series - Final Fantasy VI.

"Life...dreams...hope...where do they come from, and where do they go? None of that JUNK is enough to fulfill your hearts! DESTRUCTION! DESTRUCTION IS WHAT MAKES LIFE WORTH LIVING! Destroy, destroy, DESTROY! LET'S DESTROY EVERYTHING! "

A man who just want to destroy the world with no apparent reason is really insane indeed.

He is dressed like a clown and has the most evil laugh I have ever heard. Enough said.

10 Jason Voorhees - Friday the 13th Series Jason Voorhees - Friday the 13th Series Jason Voorhees is a character from the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Mrs. Voorhees.

The Contenders

11 Jack Torrance - The Shining Jack Torrance - The Shining John Daniel Edward "Jack" Torrance is the main antagonist of Stephen King's horror novel The Shining.

I remember being freaked out when he poked his head through the door and said "Here's Johnny".

12 Leatherface - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Leatherface - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Leatherface is a character in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre horror-film series and its spin-offs. He wears masks made of human skin and engages in murder and cannibalism, alongside his inbred family.

14 Pyramid Head - Silent Hill 2 Pyramid Head - Silent Hill 2
15 Peter Foley - Copycat

18 Freddy Krueger - A Nightmare on Elm Street Series Freddy Krueger - A Nightmare on Elm Street Series Fred "Freddy" Krueger is the main antagonist of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. He first appeared in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).

A pedophile who wants to slash you with his glove and attacks you in your dreams. Now tell me he isn't insane.

But I still think he's kind of awesome.

How is Jason anywhere NEAR crazier than Freddy? Seriously, Freddy's at 17 and Jason's at 13, What?

And Freddy makes Ledger Joker look like a chump, just saying'

I may be insane but he is my fave forever. Robert Englund rocked this role to its core! Freddy's the best

Joker isn't even insane though freddy kills people brutaly

19 Mr. Teatime - The Hogfather
20 Tyler Durden - Fight Club Tyler Durden - Fight Club
21 Professor Moriarty - Sherlock Holmes

Moriarty is an extremely intelligent and insane villain. He doesn't just pick out a random person to ruin, he chooses a person with the same intellect to challenge him. In my opinion, I don't think his ranking right now as #23 is right. I think he deserves to be in the top 10, 20 at least. The games he plays to "advertise" his "business" in public during the Reichenbach fall trial shows the risk he is willing to take, even though to him they may just be another game he knows he'll win.

22 Flowey - Undertale Flowey - Undertale Flowey is a flower in the RPG Undertale. He is the first character you meet, and also your best friend.

Literally unable to feel compassion if he tried, knows nothing but murder and hatred, plus has the best laugh of them all (listen to "your best nightmare")

23 Vaas Montenegro - Far Cry 3 Vaas Montenegro - Far Cry 3 Vaas Montenegro is the secondary antagonist of Far Cry 3, appearing as the main antagonist for the first half of its storyline.
