Best Pixar Villains

The Top Ten

1 Syndrome - The Incredibles Syndrome - The Incredibles Syndrome (born as Buddy Pine) is the primary antagonist in The Incredibles. He wanted to be super like the others, even though he had no powers. He was Mr. Incredible's #1 fan, and dubbed himself "Incrediboy," but he was rejected by Mr. Incredible. Angered after being refused, he developed an evil plan more.

Well the reason why syndrome is evil was because Mr. incredible rejected him

Good concept, worse execution. He is well-written but at the same time he's hypersensitive because of those motivations he had. Not a top villian for me - darthvadern

He is funny and better than screenslaver

He killed almost every single superhero in the world just so he could become one himself. His plan was to plant a dangerous robot in the middle of a big city (which would cause many casualties) and destroy just so he can be looked at as a hero. He would then sell his inventions for loads of money so that everyone would be super and that the very foundation of power in the world would be disrupted. His plan would have started wars and many deaths, which makes him one of the greatest evil geniuses ever. - alrod360

2 Hopper - A Bug's Life Hopper - A Bug's Life

This guy looks badass and is pretty scary. He's pretty much the Hitler of Pixar when it comes to evilness - darthvadern

Hopper represents the capitalist class of the real world, the rulers who want to keep us, the proletariat, down. A Bug’s Life was an amazing socialist commentary and the scene where the ants stuffed Hopper into a cannon was reminiscent of when the French peasants guillotined the decadent French monarchs who lived lavishly and stole the fruits of the French peasants’ labour. His death made me sad because I really liked him but it also sends an important message that the only way to deal with the bourgeoisie/government is to kill them.

Authoritarian philosophy, army, and respectable suave. #VoteForHopper

He should be 1st

3 Lotso Huggin'Bear - Toy Story 3 Lotso Huggin'Bear - Toy Story 3

I admit it, Syndrome an Hopper are are villains but they git a little too much praise, especially Syndrome, with his I he is the best Pixar villain. A pure evil can be boring, mediocre and compelling and he is a walking example in how a pure evil villain can be written. A guy with an emotional story with heinous actions that are understood because of the motive but nit justified. Then with the third act betrayal where every single sympathy I had with him for his backstory is now dull and wish he was dead. (He is just strapped to the garbage truck I wanted to see him have a deadly fate but the series for sure ends in Toy Story 4). Hopper and Syndrome are great byt Lotso should have been above them.

He should be top

Good and well-written villian - darthvadern

By far the most evil Toy Story character with no redeeming qualities in contrast to Sid and Stinky Pete who do have redeeming qualities.

4 Sid Phillips - Toy Story Sid Phillips - Toy Story

Nah - darthvadern

He’s the worst Pixar villain of all time!

More misunderstood than evil, and not a true villain. I felt really bad for Sid, but I'm glad he changes after the first movie. He grows up to be a garbage man.

They say Sid Phillips became surgeon is true?

5 Randall Boggs - Monsters Inc. Randall Boggs - Monsters Inc. Randall Boggs is a Pixar villain from both Monsters Inc and its prequel, Monsters University. He is voiced by Steve Buscemi, and has a reptilian appearance, with purple and blue scales and green eyes.

I have nostalgia for Monster's Inc. so yeah this guy's cool - darthvadern

I love this guy! He's a very cool, unique and unexpected villain.

Randall is my favourite

6 Charles Mutts - Up

Cool but slightly forgettable - darthvadern

He is so AMAZING! He is really intimidating and when he died it still seemed creepy to me

A deranged explorer played by Christopher Plummer who uses evil dogs to do his bidding. That's already awesome enough

7 Henry Waternoose III - Monsters Inc.

This guy is iconic - darthvadern

He is way better than Randall.

8 Stinky Pete - Toy Story 2 Stinky Pete - Toy Story 2

Incredibly interesting motivations he has - darthvadern

He's one big stinker!

He is voiced by Sideshow Bob!

9 Chick Hicks - Cars Chick Hicks - Cars

A one-dimensional villian with barely any screentime. Despite this I consider him one of my favourites. He just looks so badass in my opinion - darthvadern

Even though I'm really annoyed with him, I still think is a good villain - WGPRacerFanlol

He doesn’t care about anyone but himself. He deserves to be hit with confetti.

Chick is just insane. HE ALMOST KILLS THE KING just TO WIN THE PISTON CUP! The worst part is he still thinks he is awesome even after he is shown he is not.

10 Ernesto de la Cruz - Coco

Unlike most other twist villians, this one was executed quite well - darthvadern

Remember Me

He stole everything from Hector

He killed hector


The Newcomers

? Miles Axlerod - Cars 2 Miles Axlerod - Cars 2

Axlerod is a former oil baron who sold off his fortune and converted himself into an electric vehicle. He was the leader of the Lemons (criminal organisation) who wanted to turn the entire world against alternative fuels and make money out of it. The Lemons hurt many and even killed several cars in their attempt to achieve their goal. However, Axlerod's plans were foiled when Tow Mater exposed his crimes.

Interesting villian... - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Darla - Finding Nemo

I guess she's a "villian" but not very memorable - darthvadern

12 Auto - WALL-E

Forgettable to be honest - darthvadern

He's my favorite Pixar villain of all time! He should be in the top 5.

I don't like him that much aside from trying to kill the captain.

13 Bruce - Finding Nemo Bruce - Finding Nemo

He's not a villian. Not in the slightest - darthvadern

Fish are friends, not food. That doesn't sound evil. But you never want a shark to smell blood.

He's not a villain he just smell blood and run amock

14 Anton Ego - Ratatouille Anton Ego - Ratatouille

How is he a villain?

This guy is not a villian. Just creepy - darthvadern

Anton ego

15 Mor'du - Brave

Mordu is a badass with a lot of scars and a scary look
plus he is so powerful and cool
my favorite pixar villain

16 Zurg - Toy Story 2 Zurg - Toy Story 2

One of the best - darthvadern

17 Hank the Octopus - Finding Dory Hank the Octopus - Finding Dory

This is a MAIN character! Not a villian at all - darthvadern

Hank is not evil he is far from it

18 The Underminer - The Incredibles The Underminer - The Incredibles

Not really memorable - darthvadern

Nah. I disagree. He's useless.

19 Evelyn Deavor/Screenslaver - Incredibles 2

Already on list - darthvadern

She actually ranked 3rd, making Ernesto 2nd, and Syndrome 1st.

She’s one the most popular Pixar villains of all time.

I feel like she was ok, but she will never be good as Syndrome.

20 Al - Toy Story 2 Al - Toy Story 2

He good - darthvadern

21 Frank - Cars

Who? - darthvadern

A cool red tractor

22 The ScreenSlaver / Evelyn - The Incredibles 2

She is a better villain than Syndrome!

Overhated - darthvadern

BEST VILLAIN OF 2018 - B1ueNew

23 Chef Skinner - Ratatouille

Hilarious villian - darthvadern

24 The Seagulls - Finding Nemo

Guess they are villians - darthvadern

25 Jackson Storm - Cars 3

This is just a rehash on Chick Hicks just slightly more friendly I guess - darthvadern

He is a younger Chick Hicks

It d mat what you think of him though he has one cool design

The only villainous act he did was push Cruz into the outer wall, although he indirectly caused McQueen’s crash. Other than that, he was just an obstacle, but not trying to antagonize McQueen, + he had no backstory. Definitely one of the weakest villains in Pixar movies. - Kwaysar

26 Acer - Cars 2 Acer - Cars 2

Looks badass - darthvadern

27 Professor Zundapp - Cars 2

One of a best interesting villain.

Cool - darthvadern

28 Thunderclap - The Good Dinosaur

Those dudes were forgettable - darthvadern

29 Sterling - Cars 3

I felt his wanting to make mcqueen a brand was sort of like disney pulling a gun on pixar and telling them to make the five-car pileup that was cars 2, which did everything wrong toystory2 did so right.

In other words, he's a satirical character that satirises disney's greed and need to sell thneeds and lots of McQueen and cars merchandise. Cars 3 wasn't bad; it was like they wanted a good job done. And mater back to comic relief - what a relief.

Forgettable - darthvadern

I feel like he's the true villain of Cars 3

30 Dean Hardscrabble - Monsters University

Forgettable as well - darthvadern

31 Jangles The Clown - Inside Out Jangles The Clown - Inside Out

The closest thing to a villian in that movie but even then he's not that much of a "villian" - darthvadern

Inside Out didn't have a villain. That's what was so interesting about it.

32 Francesco - Cars 2

He's not a villian - darthvadern

Wasn’t evil, he just has a big ego. - Kwaysar

33 Johnny Worthington III - Monsters University Johnny Worthington III - Monsters University

Slightly forgettable - darthvadern

He always wins the events of monsters university but a few moments later ooze makappa now always wins against him but he almost won the last event but mike wazowski won it

34 Scud - Toy Story

That dog? He's alright - darthvadern

35 Gabby Gabby - Toy Story 4

I think Gabby Gabby is the best villain of all time, and one of the many reasons why Toy Story 4 is my all time favorite film. She isn't evil, it's just her actions cause trouble for the main characters. And the scene where she is given to the lost kid almost made me cry. I see Gabby Gabby as the perfect villain.

She actually gets redeemed
