Top Ten Most Insane VillainsThis 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
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.
Watch his torture screen where he butchers a fake batman on live television
He's genius in the movie and still creeps me out to this day
Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well. To what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this surprising visit?
A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some favorites beans and a nice chianti.
Yup, totally insane.
I know Buffalo Bill said it, but regardless:
It rubs the lotion on its skin, or it gets the hose again.
I'll be his therapist.
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.
do you wanna play a game?
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.
"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! "
I remember being freaked out when he poked his head through the door and said "Here's Johnny".
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'
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.
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
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.
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")
You should just play the game to see this man free of mind :D
