The Top Ten

1 Nazi Germany

It would be scary if the Nazis were after you. Hiding in horror as cities burned and got bombed. Soldiers killing the Jews. Imagine what Anne Frank went through. - ethanmeinster

Like how bad did he hit his head in the shower to be like how about I just grab a bunch of people and just kill some sexy Jews like Howard

DUH. The holocaust was terrible. While rest of Europe was flourishing, it was drenched in war.

Especially for non-Aryans... - DieGedankenSindFrei

2 Soviet Union

The soviet union killed millions over a span of time as well as keeping every citizen I complete and constant fear. More and worse than Nazi Germany.

Well in Soviet Russia, toilet flushes you! Well what do the Nazis have to say about that?

Only if you are American and/or conservative... - DieGedankenSindFrei

3 Aztec Empire

One of the fastest falling empires ever. They lost everything because of their terrible works. - zxm

4 Roman Empire

Americans must be the only people in the world voting on this, because soviet Russia didn't even do anything, Americans just "think" that Russia was going to nuke them, the roma empire did terrible things to people, not even the Nazis were as bad as the roman empire E. g salting the ground at carthage so that nothing could grow there again. Just because something happens in recent history doesn't make it the most terrifying civilisation.

They sent thousands of men and animals to die in the colosseum and many other amphitheatres around the Roman Empire to just entertain the common people. They destroyed entire empire (such as the carthagian empire) that opposed them. The Empire's expansion was almost unstoppable. The Emperors could kill thousands of their own citizens by asking for it. Being an enemy of this Empire ment certain death, for them it was a question of how brutally they wanted you to die. Before the invention of Gun Powder the weapon that killed the most people in history was the roman gladius. No one could stop them, they were hardly ever merciful. The Roman Empire is without a doubt the most terrifying.

5 Mongol Empire

They would give you two choices, to surrender and let them take everything (including all the women folk and kids) or the second choice is to watch our village burn down to the ground and then to add one more scoop to an already crappy day, you were brutally murdered

Estimates from 30 million to 60 million dead (>15% of the world killed - WWII killed only 2%), with bowmen on horses with conquests starting in 1207 and ending in 1472, won't you be terrified? - renardyoch

6 North Korea North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. ...read more.

North Korea strap people to missiles full of poop

That's is so funny! I can't believ they strap them to missles though!

7 Viking Empire

The Ottoman Empire was even more cruel and terrifying than the vikings. In 1876 they killed thousands of bulgarian and macedonian rebels. Later in 1915 Turks killed one million armenians.

They scared the crap out of people where they planned to invade. I also read that they were taller than most other civilians of that time. - zxm

8 Apache Tribes

The ninjas of America.

9 Celtic Empire

They even murdered their own people! The Celtic kings would put the poor, ill or needy people in-front of their enemy's and their castle on a hill far away so when they see smoke they know the village gas been attacked so they could run away abandoning the people that need help. They would chop off your head and put it on spicks for all to see, like a trophy and would execute them publicly for all to see including family (as in seeing them dye or being execute too just to prove a point and show power) it was sick back then!

10 Maori Civilization

Maori were one of the most powerful ancient civilizations this world has ever witnessed, and still remain that powerful force even to this day. They still remain the only undefeated race, defeating every country and race it has come up against.

11 Assyrian Empire

Torturing methods were scary as hell! - Scarytheory

The torture, methods of war and even how they advanced is enough to put the Assyrians in the top 10.

13 Ottoman Empire
14 Hunnic Empire
15 Cretans

Cretans is terrifying civilization for me because for bloody vendettas (feuds).

16 Sparta

Stupid movie 300 gave every civilization mentioned in it a very inaccurate portrayal

This may be one of the worst
- lets toss weak babies who can't handle wine off a cliff!
- I'm sorry, did you die in child birth or were killed in battle? No? No grave for you. You have dishonored us.
- oh you lost your shield? Didn't you here? Lose your shield, you lose your head.
- lets go kill some athenians and try to bring an end to democracy

Actually if you weren't killed in battle, they won't mark graves for you - SirSkeletorThe3rd

18 Tudor Dynasty
19 Saxons
20 Qin Dynasty
