Most Underrated Villains

Well there are villains who are very good, but not well known and therefor underrated. This is a list of villains who are great villains but not many people respect.

The Top Ten

1 Judge Frollo Judge Frollo

He's a good villain, but I wouldn't call him 'underrated'.

2 Oogie Boogie Oogie Boogie

YEAH OOGIE BOOGIE ROCKS!

3 Dr. Octopus

He is considered spidermans second best villian right after the green goblin. He ran the greatest villian team the sinister six.

4 Snape

Snape is way too popular for this list.

5 Raul Menendez
6 Colonel Travington

This is one of the most horrible movie villains ever. He kills children, burns down churches full of inoccent people, and slaughters American prisioners and the whole time laughs at all the misery and death he causes. Why is he not appreciated by more people.

Jason Isacc war great in this role, it is a shame he is so underrated as he is, I hop he wil grow in popularity.

7 Randy Boggs
8 Mr. Freeze Mr. Freeze Mr. Freeze, real name Victor Fries, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.
9 Frank Booth

Dennis Hopper at is finest.

The Contenders

11 Bradford Whitewood

Very underrated villain from a very underrated movie. This guy is such a bastard. He drowns a old man, steals from people, rapes his son's girlfriend, and his other son and is just a horrible person

Christopher Walken plays a very creepy, evil, and unppreciated villain.

12 Reverend Cane

The villain of Poltergiest 2 was one of the scariest villains ever. I almost wet myself when he was walking towards the house slowly, and singing his hmyme. "God is in his holy temple" "God is in his holy temple"

13 Julie Hinikawa (Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi) Julie Hinikawa (Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi)
14 Zonda The Lustful Mirage (Azure Striker Gunvolt 2)
15 Ivan Korshunov

Though he is pretty similer to Hans Gruber, Gary Oldman plays a very intimidating, and very good villain. Although people say Oldman's performence in the Professional is a underrated villain. His role in Air Force 1 is more underrated.

16 Herobrine

Herobrine is overrated. - JakePlaid

17 Max Cady Max Cady Max Cady is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the John D. MacDonald novel The Executioners. He was portrayed by Robert Mitchum in Cape Fear and Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese's Cape Fear.

Robert D Nero was great in the remake but lets face it he was so in you face over the top. Robert Mitchum on the other hand played a just as evil but more sutble villain in the original. He was more calm and planning. Maybe the audience wanted to see a crazier villain, but Mitchum delivers it in a great and underrated performence.

18 Mola Ram Mola Ram

This guy could pull hearts out of a person's chest. If that is not scary, then I don't know what is.

19 Amon Goeth Amon Goeth
20 John Doe

Wow was this guy scary and sadistic. How is he not popular.

21 Thrax

The extremely virulent antagonist of Osmosis Jones. While the movie itself was kind of "meh", one would be hard-pressed to deny that Thrax is one of the darkest and most violent villains in any animated film, especially a "family" film. Also, because he is an extremely lethal virus (hyperpyrexia), he doesn't just kill for pleasure; he wants to become famous for killing. He only exists to kill people and wants to be known as the fastest-killing illness the world has ever known. Plus, his design and animation is extremely well-handled, and Laurence Fishburne's voice acting is top-notch. It's a shame that the movie itself was rather disappointing.

Thrax Is So Tall, Dark, and Handsome!

22 Al Capone

The evil gang ruler of Chicago, though he doesn't appear that much, he still is a bad boy.

23 Blix (Legend)

Blix is a fantastic character/villain, but he doesn't get much recognition. He is skilled in hunting, tracking and fighting and prides himself on being the foulest of Darkness's goblins. He can also be an abusive leader, often hitting or insulting his goblin subordinates to keep them in line. Blix is my favorite character in the whole movie. I wish we could have seen more of him. I also kinda wish he wasn't one of the bad guys. But bad or not, I love him.

24 Sumireko Usami (Touhou) Sumireko Usami (Touhou)
25 Majin Buu Majin Buu Majin Boo (Spelled "Majin Buu" in the English Dub) is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama. He is the fourth and final main antagonist of Dragon Ball Z, a being of pure evil created by the wizard Bibbidi to wreak havok upon the universe series before the series's beginning. ...read more.
26 The Steamboat Nazi

I hated this character, he made me very angry. He kills three main characters (spoilers), one he kills by slowly driving a knife into his chest while laughing at the man's screams of pain.

I just watch Saving Private Ryan it was great, I really hated this character and wanted him to die.

27 Claude Frollo Claude Frollo

This guy is technically not that overrated but he still has my vote.

28 Davy Jones Davy Jones Davy Jones is a fictional villain character in the Pirates of the Caribbean feature film series, who first appears in the second film, Dead Man's Chest and returns in the series' third installment, At World's End.
29 Predator Predator The Predator is a fictional extraterrestrial species featured in the Predator science-fiction franchise, characterized by its trophy hunting of other species for sport.
30 Wilford Brimley (The Frollo Show)

One of the most evil old geezers in YouTube videos.

31 Durza
32 Deathstroke Deathstroke Deathstroke is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. He is a mercenary and assassin who first appeared in The New Teen Titans #2.
33 Alphys (Undertale) Alphys (Undertale) Alphys is an adorably dorky, lab-coat-wearing, bespectacled, yellow-skinned lizard scientist who resides in her lab in Hotland in the critically acclaimed cult classic RPG known as Undertale, wherein she partakes in the daily act of watching insane amounts of anime and having a vast majority of the ...read more.
34 Godzilla Godzilla Godzilla is a giant monster originating from a series of tokusatsu films of the same name from Japan.

First off, he’s not a villain. Second...EVERYONE LOVES HIM! King Kong can kiss my ass. - asantalo

35 Tigerstar Tigerstar Tigerstar is the biggest villain in the Warrior Cats, also the cat that Firestar wants to kill . He has two mates, Goldenflower and Sasha, and four kits, Bramblestar, Tawnypelt, Mothwing, and Hawkfrost . After he dies, he goes to the Dark Forest where he is killed again except this time by Firestar ...read more.
36 Percival C. McLeach (The Rescuers Down Under)

This guy is a great villain from a Disney classic yet he gets very little credit. He's rarely in videos or talked about. He's a evil, greedy and sadistic poacher who will do whatever bad thing he has to in order to get what he wants. He even has his own twisted way of singing "Home on the Range". But despite all of this, he can be funny at times. He needs more recognition. He is, without a doubt, one of my favorite Disney characters/villains.

37 Gogo Yubari (Kill Bill Vol. 1) Gogo Yubari (Kill Bill Vol. 1)

"What she lacks in age, she makes up for in madness". She's beautiful, young, and deadly all at the same time. At the tender age of 17, she's psychotic and bloodthirsty. She's also a very skilled fighter. Such a great villain and so underrated.

38 Zanza (Xenoblade Chronicles)

He is the best villain in the game, but Metal Face is the one that gets all the love.

He is extremelly underrated

39 Fawful Fawful Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

He did so much more than Bowser ever did

40 Mirage
41 Jenner
42 The Horned King

One of the mostr frightening things you'll ever see. The Horned King had the force to do whatever he wanted, and the power to use The Black Cualdron, resurecting the army of the dead.
The darkest disney villain, from the darkest disney film.

43 Owen Davian

Phillip Seymor Hoffman was a badass in Mission Impossible 3!

44 Baby Doll
45 Prince Hans Prince Hans
46 Edgar Balthazar
47 Madame Medusa (The Rescuers) Madame Medusa (The Rescuers)

She is evil, selfish and greedy. In fact, she's everything a villain should be. Still, she doesn't get as much recognition as others. She can also be funny too.

48 Raditz Raditz

Raditz deserves more credit than he's given. He may not be the strongest character in DBZ, but he's not the weakest either. He proved this in his battle(s) with Goku & Piccolo. When he first met Piccolo he wasn't even hurt; and in his battle with Goku & Piccolo, he did maintain the upper hand for most of the fight. They just barely managed to defeat him. He's very fast, in the air and on his feet, and strong enough to lift a vehicle with a single arm and blow it to bits. And must be cruel to kidnap your own nephew and hold him for ransom. He actually does make a good villain (although he could have made a good hero as well). I LOVE him SO MUCH!

49 Mental (Dumb and Dumber)

He's pretty funny. I laugh so much when he thinks "Gas Man" refers to him and says: "Gas Man. How the hell did they know that I got gas? " That's definitely one of my favorite scenes.

50 Suzuki (Bruce Lee Fights Back From the Grave)

This movie has nothing to do with Bruce Lee and it could have been a little better, but it's still not that bad. I really loved Sho Kosugi as Suzuki. The fight scene between Suzuki and Wong Han is my favorite part in the whole movie. I would have loved to have seen more of him. Suzuki was pretty cool.
