Top 10 Most Evil People of All Time

Throughout history, there have been individuals who have committed unspeakable acts of cruelty, terror, and violence. These people have caused immeasurable harm to others and left a trail of destruction in their wake. From ruthless dictators to sadistic serial killers, the list of the most evil people of all time is a sobering reminder of the dark side of human nature.

As we look back on history, it is important to remember the atrocities that have been committed and the individuals responsible for them. By studying the lives and actions of these infamous figures, we can gain a better understanding of the factors that contribute to evil and hopefully prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.

The list of the most evil people of all time is a subjective one, with many different opinions on who should be included. Some may argue that individuals who committed mass genocide, such as Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin, should be at the top of the list. Others may point to serial killers like Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer, who inflicted unspeakable acts of violence on their victims.

Regardless of who makes the cut, it is clear that the actions of these individuals have had a profound impact on history and on the lives of those affected by their cruelty. In creating a list of the most evil people of all time, we pay tribute to the victims and honor their memory, while also striving to learn from the mistakes of the past.
The Top Ten
1 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler, as the dictator of Nazi Germany and mastermind behind the Holocaust, caused the genocide of approximately six million Jews and millions of others. His actions and policies initiated World War II, resulting in the death and suffering of tens of millions of people.

I remember learning about him in 5th grade, and when he left, at lunch, no one spoke. We were all just so stunned about the evil, evil things he did.

I think he's the worst person on this list. But, when he was done, then the Russians- at the time the Soviet Union- came and killed millions more people than Hitler did. Honestly. They were horrible.

No offense to any Russians on this site. I'm not biased against Russians:I view great strength/power as the result of well-used intelligence and manpower.

It still makes Hitler bad though. Evil, but scary smart.

I respect him a little bit. He's evil and twisted: it's not like I ever want to be LIKE him: but he was very, very smart in the way he conquered a lot of the world.

Hitler's deeds make him worthy of respect and hate.

People who like Hitler should not be thrown onto the street and shot. They should be ridiculed, yes, but also educated and given a chance to reform their views. They should be told why supporting this man is a very harmful thing. People like you, who think others should be brutally murdered based on their viewpoints, no matter how objectively evil, do nothing to solve this. You are just as bad as the people you hate, as you take a certain group of people as a scapegoat to harm for your own sadistic pleasures. You make me physically sick by practicing the same things these monsters do.

Nothing on earth is comparable to the horrors of the Holocaust. Yes Stalin and Mao might have killed more people (even though Hitler was responsible for ww2 so the death toll is even higher for Hitler's actions) but no one has ever systematically used industrial methods just to kill people. Everyone should watch the documentary 'Nazi concentration camps' its an hour long and you can find it on YouTube. After that, you will certainly agree with me.

2 Joseph Stalin Joseph Stalin, the Soviet Union's leader, implemented policies that led to the suffering and death of millions. Ruling with an iron fist, he used purges, forced labor, and mass executions to maintain power and eliminate opposition. The Great Famine and widespread repression under his rule contributed to his heinous reputation.

Hitler often receives the title of "most evil," but many are unaware of just how cruel Stalin was. When you learn what happened to not only his enemies but also his own people under his rule, it makes Hitler look like an amateur.

In his early days, Hitler did achieve some good things, such as revitalizing Germany financially. It's what happened later that is truly shameful.

In contrast, Stalin did nothing good for the Soviets. The country suffered throughout his entire regime and only improved after his death. He killed, starved, and enslaved his own people, in addition to others. His death toll was higher than Hitler's by a considerable margin, outdone only by Mao. Though Mao killed more people, the atrocities were not as grotesque. Ironically, Stalin wasn't even Russian.

This man is worse than Hitler. I know you might say that Stalin killed more people and served longer as a dictator, which may be true. However, Hitler primarily killed and tortured Jews and other people out of retaliation. Stalin killed whoever he wanted, including his own people. This man didn't even care about his family. His own son was imprisoned and Stalin did nothing - literally nothing - for his son, who eventually died in captivity. Stalin was basically the Frieza of the human race, killing indiscriminately.

Unlike Hitler, who mostly targeted specific groups, this man hated people in general. He cared only about himself and his ego. This man killed millions of innocent people. His plan for the collective starvation of Ukraine led people to resort to cannibalism. Some parents even ate their own children. He also betrayed General Zhukov, who played a crucial role in Russia's victory over Nazi Germany. This man sat back and smiled as all the attention was on Hitler, both before and after the war. He was paranoid and mentally disturbed. It's surprising he was never assassinated.

Stalin should be at the top. The concentration camps were terrible, but the Gulags were even worse. The difference is that ghettos were primarily used for Jews and sometimes for prisoners of war. The Gulags, on the other hand, included almost anyone they could lay eyes on. Conditions in Siberia were horrendous: rooms were made of wood without pillows or any soft materials for sleeping, and they sometimes lacked heaters. Stalin was obsessed with being the best and strongest. He even tried to arrest Gregory Zhukov, the man who defeated Germany in WWII and was the commander of the Red Army, but Zhukov was too clever to be arrested. Come on, guys!

3 Vlad the Impaler Vlad the Impaler, also known as Vlad Dracula, was a brutal ruler of Wallachia known for his sadistic torture methods, including impalement. His reign was characterized by extreme cruelty, and he is said to have killed tens of thousands of people.

I think this guy is easily worse than Hitler and Stalin. If he had the same power as them, he probably would have killed as many people as they did, or even more, and in a far more painful manner than gas chambers or gulags. He used wooden stakes, inserted through the rectum and exiting through the mouth. He did this not only to adults but also to children and animals. If you have a pet like a dog or a cat, consider that he wouldn't hesitate to do the same to them.

In my opinion, Hitler and Stalin don't even compare to the level of evil this man embodied. He drank the blood of his victims as they were dying slow and painful deaths. He even roasted children and forced their parents to eat them. Dracula, the infamous character, is inspired by this individual. This man is not a man. He's a devil. He is like the spiritual son of Satan. I'd go so far as to say that even ghosts and demons would be scared of him simply because of how evil he is.

Most of the people on this list (while I am not excusing them as good people in any way and take large regard for their cruelty or crimes in history) are not technically "evil," just either politically or mentally disturbed from their past or culture. This guy, however, is literally the true definition of evil. He didn't care about anyone in his country or have any regard for safety. Vlad had hundreds of innocent people and families impaled while bare naked, just for the thrill of it. Hell, this man is known for literally drinking blood from his victims while staring at the impaled bodies in his throne room.

Sure, Hitler and Stalin killed way more than this man, but a gulag or even a gas chamber (as horrible as they were) are literal mercies compared to a slow, agonizing, and quiet death on a sharp wooden stake. This man had a fetish for inflicting suffering on others. He's even the reason why Dracula exists today! (Surprise, surprise, he inspired the creation of ...more

This guy has to be the worst human of all time. He's so evil that I question whether we can even call him human. What is he? Vlad Dracula, what kind of being is this? He derives enjoyment from the suffering of women, children, babies, animals, sick people, poor people, and innocent individuals, all of whom get impaled, burned alive, and so on. This is pure evil.

He's so evil that he can't even be classified as a human. With Hitler, you could say he's the worst human of all time, but with Vlad? What is he? He can't be called human. He's worse than the worst. What is this "thing"?

This individual needs to be ranked number one by a wide margin. What Hitler and Stalin did is undeniable, but this man's actions are incomparable. And as for Justin Bieber - I don't understand the comparison. He may be a terrible musician, but he never committed the atrocities these men did.

This man would order people to sit on blunt rods so they could suffer in pain for days, until they were eventually sliced in half. He would smash people's heads into stone walls. He deep-fried young children and forced their parents to eat them. Without a doubt, this guy is the most sadistic, evil, gruesome, and bloodthirsty individual in history.

4 Osama bin Laden Osama bin Laden, the founder and leader of al-Qaeda, orchestrated the September 11th attacks on the United States, which killed nearly 3,000 people. He was responsible for numerous other acts of terrorism and violence, aiming to spread fear and instability throughout the world.

While I completely agree that Adolf Hitler was a very evil man, he had a multitude of disorders that made him think the way he did. He really couldn't help being born the way he was. If he weren't, he could have been one of the kindest and most positively influential people in all of history. I voted for Osama because he had no mental disorders. He actually wanted to destroy all of the world because of his religion.

Instead of getting into too much detail about my views on the world, I'm going to end on the statement that Osama bin Laden was, in his time, the most evil man since Adolf Hitler. If you disagree, feel free to add whatever comments you wish above, because in all honesty, you are entitled to your opinions, as am I. Thank you for letting me share my thoughts on your website.

The real question for this man is, "Why?" Why did he lead all these terrorist attacks? Why did he form Al-Qaeda? Why did he commit such acts of treachery that made him responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent people? On that very day, September 11, 2001, he led the terrorist attack that involved a plane flying into the Twin Towers, otherwise known as the World Trade Center. The event resulted in the deaths of over 2,000 people.

Osama bin Laden led many other terrorist attacks, but 9/11, for me personally as an American citizen, was horrible. I was not alive then, but just think - 2,000 people died in the attack. Two thousand people had to lose their lives to one man. Many people were involved in the attack, but Laden led the operation. America did nothing to him. The only answer to the question is, he's truly evil. A man who deserves the title "most evil human" and deserved to rot painfully in hell.

Hitler may have killed more people, but don't you think if bin Laden had the chance, he would do the same? Hitler is not actually that evil. He loved animals, and his aggressive father, who nearly killed him many times, caused his insanity. Sure, Hitler had the biggest impact, but he had the biggest opportunity. Gaddafi and Hussein educated and cared for their people. Osama used the kindness of the USA to stop Russia from making those countries communist, and then he threw it back in their face.

This should not be #9. It should be #2! This is only because, even though he was evil, he was not as evil and didn't kill as many innocent people as Adolf Hitler. Here are some reasons why this guy is terrible:

1. If it weren't for this individual, we could all be free now from the war in Afghanistan.
2. I find him physically unattractive. Don't even consider looking up a picture of him. I dislike his beard and his face. I dislike everything about him.
3. He was responsible for 9/11 and other Al-Qaeda attacks, such as the train bombing in 2004.
4. He was the leader of Al-Qaeda, and he founded the organization.
5. I can't believe he lived to be 54 years old. I'm glad that President Obama sent Navy SEALs to end his life, as he didn't deserve a long one.
6. I find his manner of speaking unintelligible, even though he doesn't speak English. I don't understand what he's saying.
7. He's a self-centered individual who always wants things to go his way, like wanting ...more

5 Mao Zedong Mao Zedong, the founding father of the People's Republic of China, implemented policies that led to the suffering and death of millions. The Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution resulted in widespread famine, social unrest, and the persecution of countless innocent people.

Mao was born in 1893 in Hunan Province, Qing China. While working as a Librarian in Peking university, he helped found the Chinese Communist Party in 1921. He became the leader of the People's Republic of China in 1949 after the Chinese Civil War between him and Chiang Kai-Shek (1945-1949).

This guy is ten times more evil than Stalin and Hitler. My grandfather survived Japanese army that invaded China, but died because of Mao Zedong's so-called the great leap forward. He was called out to build the railway, not only him, but also my oldest aunt, however, who was only about 14 years old. What could such a child do for that hard work? So my grandfather in fact did two persons' job. And most important what he fed was with very poor quality. Thus my grandfather became weaker and weaker, at last he was sent back carried by two people because he already couldn't walk that time. After several weeks, he died. Mao Zedong, the most evil guy, he also had to commit to my mother's disease, my mother suffered a lot at her childhood too! I hate communist party, forever! What's notable is that people killed by Mao Zedong are actually more than whom are killed by Japanese. So now as for me, or us, if Japanese aren't offensive, we can't be friends; if again they try to do something they ...more

Mao Zedong is the worst dictator in Chinese history - no, I mean in the entire history of humanity. He killed far more people than Hitler and Stalin, and most of his victims were his fellow Chinese. His disastrous Great Leap Forward led to countless deaths from starvation. His Cultural Revolution not only resulted in millions more deaths, but it also inflicted severe damage on Chinese culture and turned the majority of mainland Chinese into pure materialists.

Furthermore, during the Second Sino-Japanese War, he didn't actively fight for China. Instead, he and his Communist forces fled and waited for the Nationalists to be weakened by the war. According to some sources, he even secretly collaborated with the Japanese during the war. After the war was over and the ROC army had suffered major losses, Mao Zedong and his men emerged and began the Chinese Civil War. In the years following his occupation of mainland China, he even thanked the Japanese for invading China and indirectly ...more

He harnessed the nationalistic wave that had swept China after Japan had been defeated and used it to unite the country under him. Essentially, he exploited China's hatred for Japan to rise to power. The hatred he helped to kindle persists today among many Chinese citizens. He's no different than Hitler, who united Germany in a unified hatred against Jews. Although Japanese war crimes during WWII were unthinkably inhumane and cruel, if Mao Zedong hadn't used Japan as his scapegoat for power, relations between Japan and China could be in much better shape today.

Mao Zedong lied to and manipulated the nation and its people, who had placed their faith in him. Anyone who questioned or insulted him was either slaughtered or sent to work camps, much like Hitler. If that isn't evil, I'm not sure what is.

6 Pol Pot Pol Pot, the leader of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, orchestrated a genocidal campaign that resulted in the death of approximately two million people, or one-quarter of the country's population. His radical policies led to forced labor, starvation, and mass executions.

He is the most underratedly evil person. He even cut off people's fingers and forced their wives to eat them. He forced kids to become executioners, and instead of gas chambers, the children executed the victims by beating them. Cambodia used to be one of the richest, most developed countries in the world, and now (I've been there a couple of times), he's left them living in poverty.

Why is he not at the top? How can people literally forget the devil existed? Knowing anything about him or the Khmer Rouge makes Adolf Hitler look like Mr. Rogers.

If we're basing this on the highest percentage of the country's population killed, then Pol Pot is the worst. He killed 25% of the population in Cambodia. Not only that, he destroyed 95% of the Buddhist temples in Cambodia. While I personally think Stalin, Hitler, and Mao (in that order) are worse, Pol Pot is also in that tier, and they're all very close. You could realistically put them in any order. Pol Pot is, for lack of a better term, one of the most "underrated" monsters of all time.

One-fourth of his own country died because of him. Now imagine someone doing that to the country you live in or were born in. This guy is easily in the top 10.

7 Heinrich Himmler Heinrich Himmler, a leading member of the Nazi Party and chief architect of the Holocaust, oversaw the concentration and extermination camps where millions of Jews and others were systematically murdered. His actions and ideology make him one of the most sinister figures in history.

Heinrich Himmler supported Adolf Hitler and came up with the idea of gas chambers disguised as showers. He said, "Our fellow German soldiers will be sad seeing the Jewish people die from bullets. We should kill them without spilling their blood."

This guy was the mastermind behind the Holocaust. Even Hitler thought he was somewhat messed up. He was behind the Final Solution. Then the coward tried to flee under a false identity after the war. Thank God he was caught.

This man was the true mastermind of the Holocaust. And, if I remember correctly, he wasn't mentally ill, unlike Hitler. Though Hitler was not a good person, you must cut him some slack because he was mentally ill, and Himmler wasn't.

The most evil man in history was not Adolf Hitler, who orchestrated the 15 million deaths carried out by Nazi Germany. It was Heinrich Himmler. He was the head of the SS and the Gestapo (Nazi Secret Police). He orchestrated the deaths of 6 million Jews, millions of Christians, Slavs, Russians, Poles, Africans, Communists, disabled people, and other "undesirables."

8 Genghis Khan Genghis Khan, the founder and first Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, led a series of brutal military campaigns that resulted in the conquest of vast territories and the death of millions of people. His armies were known for their ruthless tactics, including the wholesale slaughter of entire cities.

Genghis Khan killed roughly 40 million people, which is nearly as much as Stalin and Hitler combined. Don't forget, this was when the world's population was much smaller. How many people would he have killed if the world's population were roughly the same size as it is today? The thought makes me shudder. I honestly don't understand how he makes it onto all these "great leaders" lists. All I see when I look at him is a ruthless, evil mass murderer. He slaughtered tens of millions of innocents simply because he couldn't be bothered to govern them. He killed children and even babies, used gruesome torture methods (such as boiling people alive and pouring molten metal on them), and had all his grave diggers killed just to keep his burial place a secret. How is he ranked #8? He should be in the top 3. He was brutal, truly evil, and controlled a massive empire - exactly how you would describe a dark lord.

In my opinion, he is the most evil person of all time. He tried to take over the world and killed so many people. Many members of his family were also bad. He killed countless children in the Mongolian Empire. He conquered large parts of Asia and Europe. The Mongolian Empire was probably the biggest empire of all time. Why is Justin Bieber ranked higher than him? Why is Justin Bieber even on the list?

The original genocidalist. Huns and Turkic groups had raided Asia and Europe since perhaps the 1st century (and earlier in Central and East Asia). Genghis Khan united the eastern and western Hun tribes into a unified army, much like Shanyu (Hashana Khan), who had tried to wreck Song China 700 years prior. The Huns killed millions of Muslims and razed Baghdad. They accomplished what the UN did in one-tenth the time with premodern weapons. His campaign to spread Buddhism and eliminate disliked groups was insane. The invasion of China under his son resulted in 40-80 million deaths (mostly among the Song Chinese).

This guy was one of the most badass people in history and should be on the list of the greatest people in history. His tactics were genius, he greatly influenced warfare, had an epic beard, was a fearless and worthy leader, conquered most of the known world, and was an overall awesome person.

9 Kim Jong-il Kim Jong-il, the former leader of North Korea, ruled with an iron fist and fostered a cult of personality around himself. His repressive regime was marked by economic mismanagement, leading to widespread famine, and numerous human rights abuses, including political imprisonment, torture, and repression.

Way to go. A bastard who enslaves his own "paradise" he calls North Korea, where prisons are labor camps and there is no Internet access whatsoever. He has people executed or punished harshly for simple things that shouldn't even be illegal. And he bans pants for women. Seriously? Christians, prisoners of war, criminals, or people who simply want to escape from North Korea are all placed in labor camps. There, they are forced to work more than 10 hours on farms. They suffer merciless tortures, beatings, and are murdered by guards randomly. Kim Jong-Il has the nerve to just sit on his pile of money and laugh it off in his palace. He kidnaps people, motivated by his own personal interests, and he has the entire North Korea think he is a "God." Both he and his father are tyrants. And what the hell is Justin Bieber even doing on this list?

He is the reason one-fifth of North Koreans in the '90s literally starved to death. He made it impossible for anyone to eat, using all of the government spending for the military and his own comfort. He is the definition of selfish.

The leadership in North Korea disgusts me. Firstly, I'm a socialist, and what they do over there is nowhere near what socialism is about. Socialism is about equality for EVERYBODY. This guy lives like a king while children in his country are starving to death. My God, he is so disgusting as a person and a leader. I feel so bad for those in North Korea. They have a vain, pompous psychopath as a leader. I might also point out that their Juche philosophy is not even socialism, but fascism mixed with bits ripped off from Leninism. While we're on the topic, how is Justin Bieber higher than Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden? I agree his music is awful, but if you think he is worse than all these mass murderers, you are a spoiled capitalist brat who knows nothing of the real world.

He was a horrible leader. He convinced everyone in his country that he was the second coming of Christ and outlawed all other religions. He was extremely homophobic and banned homosexuality. He also prohibited people from leaving the country or accessing any information from the outside world. He forced thousands to work on collective farms at starvation wages, including children and senior citizens. Additionally, he imprisoned thousands more for speaking out against his regime, along with their entire families, in what can only be described as concentration camps.

He had people regularly tortured and refused to provide food, water, or medical attention to anyone not part of the "glorious people's army." He had ambitions of brutally invading South Korea, possibly using nuclear and/or chemical weapons. He kidnapped South Korean families and took them to North Korea, where they were likely to be tortured. His propaganda machine was so terrible that only a child would believe some ...more

10 Saddam Hussein Saddam Hussein, the former president of Iraq, was notorious for his brutal rule, marked by the use of chemical weapons against the Kurds, the suppression of political dissent, and widespread human rights abuses. His invasion of Kuwait in 1990 led to the Gulf War and further regional instability.

Saddam is the worst human being in the world. I can't even call him human. This man took all the young boys from families with long origins from Iran and killed them all, and you can't even find where their bodies are. He destroyed Iraq. If it weren't for his ignorance, Iraq wouldn't have become the way it is right now. And a special thanks to the United States government, who colluded with him to make Iraq a place where you can only confront fear of death. The people of Iraq have lost all their young children. They haven't seen happiness after all the things he did. There are people who actually love him because he did good things for his people, not for the entire country. He took all the young people who didn't even know what was going on and cut their heads off in the streets. He is evil!

I still remember the scenes from Halabja - dead women and children on the streets shown on prime-time television. Strangely, the Western world didn't seem to care. There were not the slightest demonstrations. This is a stark contrast to the protests seen when George W. Bush moved to get Saddam Hussein.

This is the case of a really evil man who needed to be stopped. Imagine destroying an entire village just because the army needs to try out a new chemical weapon. It's OK, Kurdish people aren't worth much anyway, right? Yes, that was Saddam Hussein's way of thinking. And it didn't happen just one time or a few times.

Saddam was actually against terrorism. He was trying to stop the creation of ISIS, but through 9/11, Iraq was invaded by the U.S. because of 9/11 in Bush's sick, evil agenda.

The Newcomers

? Dragutin Dimitrijević
? Martin Ney
The Contenders
11 Ivan IV of Russia Ivan IV of Russia, also known as Ivan the Terrible, was a ruthless and paranoid ruler. His reign saw the expansion of the Russian state but was also marked by cruelty, including the violent repression of political opponents, mass executions, and the devastating Livonian War.

I hate how everyone goes on about Hitler and thinks he's the most evil man in history just because he started World War 2. But he thought he was doing a good thing! He's still very evil, but Ivan the Terrible is 100 times worse. He tortured and killed men, women, and children by removing their ribs with red-hot pokers, disemboweling, boiling, frying, skinning, beheading, hanging, and strangling them. He also buried people alive and killed hundreds of thousands of people. He beat his pregnant daughter-in-law, causing a miscarriage. When his son heard of this, he confronted him, but Ivan killed him.

He's more of a psychopath than everyone on the top ten of this list (except maybe Pol, Mao, and Dracula). He tortured animals and children in gruesome ways as both a child and adult. He built a wall around Novgorod (which was worse than what people say about Trump). He forced adults to watch their children die while subjecting the adults to death by fire or stabbing and beheading. He even killed his own wife, son, and daughter-in-law (even Hitler wasn't that evil).

Stabbing his son, killing millions of people, and killing his daughter-in-law! He is evil! But I agree, Hitler is more evil.

I'd put Ivan at number 2. He killed his own son and beat his pregnant daughter-in-law. Ivan wasn't called Ivan the Terrible for nothing.

12 Kim Jong-un Kim Jong-un, the current leader of North Korea, maintains an oppressive regime that commits widespread human rights abuses, including forced labor camps, public executions, and severe restrictions on personal freedom. His pursuit of nuclear weapons and aggressive rhetoric have heightened global tensions.

The world's biggest spoiled brat is evil, especially in the case of nuking. Mostly, he's selfish. Here are some bans in North Korea:

1. Jeans. Yes, jeans are a crime in North Korea, as are earrings. According to Kim Jong-Un, these items resemble American culture, which is one of North Korea's worst enemies.
2. No jokes allowed. A while ago, Kim Jong-Un banned the use of sarcasm. So I guess he would be very happy if he saw me using this sarcasm right now. Then again, I don't think he could if he was on a different computer than his own because,
3. The internet in North Korea is essentially a giant propaganda site. Nothing more. Only Kim Jong-Un receives the real internet.
4. Music. You can't listen to artists like Ariana Grande or Taylor Swift unless their songs praise the great Kim Jong-Un. Again, I'm being sarcastic.

There are also other things banned, such as pornography. So, you see, North Korea is very poor because of Kim Jong-Un and all the other Kim Jongs.

This selfish man runs a country, enslaving his citizens and executing people for every little mistake. Or not even a mistake - just an opinion, a thought, or an action. All the citizens are impoverished, and his country is so corrupt that they don't even have a seat at the UN.

Kim Jong Un is threatening countries with nukes that could wipe out whole nations and potentially trigger a brutal war or end our existence. What's more, he does not care about his people and tortures them for no good reason.

This guy wanted to destroy the United States, and his entire dynasty has wanted to since the Korean War. Well, they had a peace agreement with them.

13 Idi Amin Idi Amin, the former dictator of Uganda, was responsible for the deaths of an estimated 300,000 people during his eight-year rule. His regime was characterized by human rights abuses, ethnic persecution, forced disappearances, and widespread corruption.

The Butcher of Uganda is a known cannibal. He kept his victims' bodies in his fridge so he could laugh at them, executed his enemies on live TV, and dumped some of his victims into the Nile River. He ultimately killed over 500,000 people. This guy was the worst Ugandan leader, and arguably the worst African leader in history.

Idi Amin didn't just store people's bodies and laugh at them. He tortured and killed anyone who opposed him. If his intelligence agency got a whiff of rebellion from you, they shot you and left you there. He also buried people in mass graves after quartering them.

I believe this guy allowed a bunch of terrorists to land at his airport, killed three of the 103 hostages, and got his butt whipped by the Israeli Defense Forces.

This dude was pure evil. When he killed people, he kept their bodies in his fridge so he could look at them and laugh. He even executed his enemies on live TV.

14 Benito Mussolini Benito Mussolini, the fascist dictator of Italy, led his country into World War II on the side of Nazi Germany. His policies resulted in widespread suffering, economic decline, and thousands of deaths. He was also responsible for the invasion of Ethiopia and the persecution of Jews and other minorities.

He was the leader of Italy during WWII. He harbored racist views against black people and was an ally of Hitler. Additionally, he was a coward, as he couldn't fight a single battle without help from Hitler.

He was the original worst man, not Hitler. He inspired Hitler and initiated the terrible events of the 20th century. Of course, Hitler committed the worst acts ever done by a human, but this man committed the original sin.

He was a Fascist dictator who couldn't invade a country without the assistance of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.

He was evil! He held beliefs similar to Hitler's and continually committed mass genocide against black people.

15 George W. Bush George W. Bush's presidency is often criticized for the controversial invasion of Iraq in 2003, which was based on faulty intelligence and led to a prolonged conflict, the loss of thousands of lives, and regional instability. His administration's policies, such as the use of torture, are also viewed as morally reprehensible.

He's probably the most evil, in my opinion, because of his bad decisions as president that screwed up the country and even started a war. For all the people who died in the wars that followed his rash actions, American or otherwise, I stand by you.

I also think it was extremely disgusting to put Justin Bieber on the top evil people list. I could see putting him on the worst musicians of all time, but evil? Seriously? Whoever posted that needs to get themselves checked out, because putting a teenage pop star next to Hitler is inexplicable.

Bush screwed up everything. He definitely shouldn't have been president. He can't even lie to us the right way! He's terrible at public speaking, and it surprises me that he even got into office!

What can be worse than invading another country for no good reason, and on top of that, not even having any knowledge of that country? Because of that, hundreds of thousands of people have died. I've heard of an evil genius, but this guy is an evil idiot!

He was the original Dr. Evil. By the way I don't know how Dr. evil did not make this list. But George only appeared stupid, he new what he was doing. A lot of innocent people were put to death because of him, with an assist by Cheney.

16 Josef Mengele Josef Mengele, a Nazi physician and SS officer, conducted horrifying experiments on prisoners at the Auschwitz concentration camp during the Holocaust. His cruel and inhumane medical research resulted in the death and suffering of countless innocent people.

While Hitler instigated the Holocaust, the people performing the actions were far worse. (I am not defending Hitler in any way. He is still terrible.) Some individuals killed people in the most brutal ways possible, which are too gruesome to describe. Not only that, but one coward even got away with it by moving to South America and lived as if nothing happened. I'm glad he's rotting in the underworld.

I personally think Mengele was the absolute worst person the Nazi Party ever had under their employment, which really says something. I also believe that, unlike everyone else, Mengele's motivation wasn't actually towards the Holocaust so much as he wanted to satisfy his own sick and sadistic desires.

Hitler's case is interesting in that, in his own twisted and warped perspective, he genuinely believed that he was helping the world by killing the Jews. He thought it would benefit everyone, even those outside of Germany. His miserable upbringing and lack of success in life prior to becoming a politician paved the way for him becoming a tyrannical madman. Of course, despite Hitler having struggled and suffered throughout his life, this does not condone his actions. Any sort of sympathy you could have for him goes away by the time he becomes Führer.

Mengele, on the other hand, was a sadistic psychopath from day one. The Holocaust just gave him free rein to do what he ...more

A complete monster conducted horrible experiments on the prisoners of Auschwitz. He would do things like sewing twins together in an attempt to create conjoined twins and injecting chemicals into twins' eyes to see if they would change color. One of his favorite experiments involved injecting one twin with lethal chemicals or a strain of a deadly disease, thereby killing them, before killing the second twin to compare their corpses. He would also kill people with heterochromatic eyes to remove them and send them to Berlin for study.

Have you heard of "The Human Centipede?" The plot of that sick, twisted movie was inspired by the experiments the Nazis performed on their prisoners, and the villain of the movie was based on Mengele himself.

I can't express how much I hate this guy's guts. He should at least be in the top twenty.

Mengele would conduct the most horrific experiments, sewing twins together and carrying out experiments to maximize pain and suffering. He would laugh with glee as he did it. Most survivors would see him in the selection process with a smile on his face as he flicked his wrist to signify death or to be worked to death. He would celebrate Jewish holy days by ordering the gassing of 1,000 children, and once had 300 children thrown into a fire as he spectated. There are other things he did as well, but I don't need to write them all. Josef Mengele was truly the most evil man to ever exist, and there is a reason they call him "The Angel of Death."

17 Nero Nero, a Roman emperor, is infamous for his tyrannical rule and cruelty. He is believed to have ordered the Great Fire of Rome and subsequently blamed the Christians, leading to their persecution. His reign was marked by extrajudicial killings, political repression, and widespread fear.

If it weren't for him, the Roman Empire might have lasted a bit longer. I hate this guy who ruined the greatest civilization that ever existed.

Having Donald Trump and Justin Bieber ahead of Nero is laughable at best. Nero plotted the death of his mother, set fire to Rome, and played a lyre while it was burning. He murdered many Christians, including Paul and Simon Peter. Many Christians referred to him as the Antichrist. A pop star and a businessman are ranked higher than an insane psychopath? And where's Caligula?

Nero set fire to Rome to make room for his new palace and then blamed the fire on the Christians, resulting in their killing. When he got married to his second wife, he gave her his first wife's severed head in a basket as a wedding gift. He had his second wife kicked to death when they had an argument. He claimed he was a god, and if you disagreed, you would end up in the sewers. Nero had a pet "glutton," an Egyptian slave, who would eat anything, even other humans.

He dipped Christians in tar and set them on fire to make lights for parties. The Book of Revelations speaks of a beast. This man is that beast, and I'm not joking.

18 Fred Phelps Fred Phelps, the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, is known for his extreme anti-gay views and the promotion of hate speech. His group's protests, often held at military funerals, caused immense emotional distress to grieving families and have been widely condemned as morally reprehensible.

I am personally a Christian, and it really hurts me to see people like Fred using Christianity to do all these evil things. He even hates Jews, and in the Bible, it mentions that Jews are God's chosen people. So basically, hating Jews means that you're contradicting your own belief. Jesus was even a Jew! And Jesus said that the two most important laws are to love God (Fred doesn't love God, he loves hate) and to love others, which Fred is not really doing.

This guy should swap places with Justin Bieber. He founded the most hateful group in America. He hates basically everyone: Jews, gays, Americans, and even other Christians. According to him, everyone who isn't in his church is going to burn in hell. The worst part is that the WBC uses children for all their dirty work and forces his hate down their throats. He has 5-year-olds singing "All evil perforate Jews! God hates you, and you know it!" So he is like Hitler in some aspects.

This is the one person who is hated by every religious person, every atheist, and every agnostic. Whether you're gay, Jewish, Christian, atheist, Muslim, American, etc., he thinks you deserve to die and suffer. He has a five-year-old girl sing songs that are morally disgusting to begin with. He has disowned children of his who decided they don't want to hate everyone. Truly, he is the most horrible person on Earth.

This pseudo-Christian is no longer with us. He probably thought that when he died, he'd go to heaven. It's not up to me, of course, but I suspect he went elsewhere.

19 Attila the Hun Attila the Hun, a fearsome warrior and leader of the Hunnic Empire, led a series of violent campaigns across Europe, causing widespread destruction and suffering. His brutal tactics, including the sack of numerous cities, have made him an infamous figure in history.

Like Genghis Khan, his existence made the world a worse place. We would have been hundreds of years ahead in progress if he had never existed.

How is he not in the top ten? He killed people for no justifiable reason, catapulted infected bodies over city walls, destroyed several cities, and even instructed his men to collect the ears of corpses to confirm their deaths. Truly disturbing.

He killed thousands of people and was one of the most feared individuals in the Roman Empire as well as the rest of the known world.

Attila indiscriminately killed everyone in his path. He is the worst person in Medieval history.

20 Leopold II of Belgium Leopold II of Belgium, during his rule over the Congo Free State, was responsible for the exploitation, forced labor, and brutal treatment of the Congolese people. His policies led to the death of millions and the mutilation of countless others. Leopold's actions in Congo remain a dark chapter in colonial history.

Before Hitler, King "Coverup" slaughtered ten to twenty million people in his personally owned Free State of Congo. Why? To speed up the production of natural rubber, which became a booming market with the advent of the bicycle and automobile. It's also noteworthy that he rewarded his enforcers in a peculiar fashion - paying out bonuses for dirty deeds, evidenced by body parts.

His brand of mayhem served as the inspiration for the methods employed in the Rwandan massacre.

Leopold II has to be one of the most horrible human beings of the 19th century. He turned the Congo into his own private colony, where his army carried out gruesome atrocities. It is believed that 10 million Congolese died under his rule. Why? In the name of resources. One could argue that he was the first to commit genocide on an industrial scale. His ruthless colonization of the Congo also kick-started the scramble for Africa.

He was responsible for the genocide of masses of Congolese for the expansion of Belgian and European industry. His colony in the Congo, which was operated more by his kingship than by the government of Belgium, made the Congo and the central African region what it is today. People blaming Kony for the slaughter of innocents would do well to read "King Leopold's Ghost" to see how the atmosphere where small-scale warlords like Kony could thrive was created.

Ayo, why is this guy ranked below Donald Trump? This guy is like the Pol Pot of Belgium. So many awful things happened under him that his death toll ended up being higher than Adolf Hitler's. I understand that recent publicity has elevated Trump's position on this list, but Leopold II was genuinely cruel, cold, and malicious. Leaders like him need more recognition for the evil and cruel people they are.

21 Fidel Castro Fidel Castro, the former leader of Cuba, implemented strict authoritarian policies, including the suppression of political dissent, the persecution of religious and ethnic minorities, and widespread human rights abuses. His rule led to the suffering of the Cuban people, economic stagnation, and international isolation.

He's a very controversial figure, largely due to the false perception of him created by the communist paranoia in America. His roll in history also ended up somewhat muddled with Che Guevara's. The truth is that no leader can be perfect, there will always be the good things they do and then the horrible things they do, whether they wanted to or not. Lenin is idolized by many, but that doesn't mean he got off Scott free from some pretty awful things during the revolution, but he still managed to improve the state of Russia during his brief rule (granted everything went downhill after that). It's the same with Castro. Obviously a revolution is no happy go lucky thing, people end up getting their hands dirty whether they like it or not. However, Cuba was in a pretty awful state before the revolution. Cuban citizens suffered greatly under the oppressive capitalist rule, and while things are still iffy in Cuba, but what did you really expect? A utopia? The current state of Cuba is greatly ...more

He's a very controversial figure. When he died just a few months ago, I was actually happy. This is because he was one of the main causes of Cuba's problems and why it has become so totalitarian. But people are entitled to their own opinions about him.

I have something to say about this man. It doesn't matter if he saved Cuba. He is still a bad person. I say this even as an Asian.

An evil monster that almost no one realizes exists.

22 Napoleon Napoleon Bonaparte, a brilliant military leader and emperor of the French, is often criticized for his imperial ambitions and the costly wars he initiated across Europe. His aggressive expansionism led to the deaths of millions and widespread suffering.

I'm not saying that this guy isn't cruel, but according to multiple historical sites, countries under Napoleon's rule actually prospered. It's unfair to compare him to Hitler when the number of people he killed can't be compared to the number Hitler killed. Also, unlike Hitler, he wasn't prejudiced and never ordered mass executions. He isn't a hero, but what the hell is he doing on this list?

Honestly, there is little difference between Napoleon and Hitler. They both tried to conquer Europe, both failed, and both cost millions of lives in the process.

Napoleon WAS evil. He killed innocent people, many of whom were children and didn't know the wrongdoings of their parents.

Napoleon equals Hitler. What a hateful human being. Thankfully, he lost the war and couldn't conquer Europe.

23 Peter Gerard Scully Peter Gerard Scully, an Australian criminal, is known for his involvement in the production and distribution of child pornography and for his brutal acts of child abuse and murder. His heinous crimes have shocked the world and made him a universally despised figure.

You know he's bad when even other pedophiles find Daisy's Destruction (a CP hurtcore video he filmed) disgusting. Even trained police officers, who are trained to stomach these kinds of things, couldn't handle it either.

Hate, abhor, despise, and loathe, all combined together and multiplied by infinity, barely even represent one billionth of the hatred that I feel for this guy.

This sick excuse for a human being should rank above Donald Trump. Even though I loathe Trump, he is nowhere near as bad as this monster.

Why is he ranked lower than Justin Bieber? He is a child molester and hurts children. I hope this sick freak dies a horrible death.

24 Charles Manson Charles Manson, the leader of the Manson Family cult, orchestrated a series of gruesome murders, including the killing of actress Sharon Tate and her unborn child. His manipulation of his followers and his role in these brutal crimes have made him an infamous figure in American history.

I forgot how many people he murdered with his cult. He killed Sharon Tate, who was, I believe, 7 months pregnant. Then his goons painted Pig on the wall of her house with her own blood. His goons also murdered a supermarket manager and his wife, painting WAR on the wall with their blood. Manson deserves the death penalty. He should rot in hell.

So this is what we're doing now? George Bush, Justin Bieber, and Donald Trump are considered drastically more 'evil' than Charles Manson? People seem to have read the question wrong. It's not about who you hate, but who is evil. Critical thinking appears to be lacking once again.

He disgusts me! He ordered his followers to murder innocent people, one of whom was carrying a baby. Complete sicko!

It makes me sad that this scumbag is still walking this Earth with us after what he did. Disgusting.

25 Reinhard Heydrich Reinhard Heydrich, a high-ranking Nazi official and key architect of the Holocaust, played a major role in the planning and implementation of the Final Solution. His ruthless policies and actions contributed to the systematic murder of millions of Jews and others during World War II.

He was the mastermind of the Holocaust...

Hitler called him bad. That means...

This was a guy Hitler called the man with an iron heart. If Hitler calls you bad, you've screwed up.

Nazi. By default, evil.
