Scariest Disney Villains

There are lists for the "best", "favorite", and "most evil", but there is no such list for the "scariest" Disney villains ever to hit the big screen.

The Top Ten

1 The Horned King - The Black Cauldron

I loved The Black Cauldron when I was little. But I always fell asleep before I got to see the Horned King. I re-watched this movie recently. O MY GOSH! The Horned King is TERRIFYING. I had nightmares for two weeks of him just standing there laughing. I may need therapy.

When I was like six, I saw The Black Cauldron, and The Horned King was SUPER SCARY, GOSH.
But when I was ten I saw this movie again, I loved him, he became my favorite Disney villain, not just that, my favorite Disney villain EVER!

Yes I think that he is the scariest villain because he scared me when I was little

Scary one ever! But awesome

2 Chernabog - Fantasia Chernabog  - Fantasia Chernabog is a Disney villain from the 1940s film Fantasia, and in his segment, "A Night on Bald Mountain".

Always the first one. I feel evil when I see him. He is SATAN, damn.

I got so scared and I had a nightmare. He looks so creepy and he's the devil.

Defiantly the scariest - asantalo

3 The Headless Horseman - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

That laugh! It haunts me every time! I remember the first time I watched him. I had nightmares about him for weeks! I was scared he would come in my room then chop my head off! - Daviddv0601

The headless Horseman is quite scary. I feel really scared when I see him. It becomes quite creepy!

Don't watch him in the dark.

The headless horseman is the scariest why well maybe chernabog is like the devil horseman has an creepy laugh without ahead he's burning pumpkin was he's head and the only and the first disney villain that actually won instead loseing and being defateet or killed off you creep me ou headless horseman hahaahahaaahaha haha haha creppy melody haha

4 Ursula - The Little Mermaid Ursula - The Little Mermaid Ursula is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated feature film The Little Mermaid.

For some reason as a kid I was deathly afraid of her like crazy afraid. For example me and my family went to disney on ice and when the little mermaid came on I was shaking just seeing ariel come out but when Ursula hit the ice I screamed and my grandma had to put a her coat over my head because I couldn't stand the sight of her with out crying! Also when I had Cinderella Platinum Edition which came out about a month before the Little Mermaid Platinum Edition so whenever I would watch the commercials on the Cinderella disc the Little Mermaid commercial and there was a clip of the final battle and every time I would freak out. Finally and thankfully I have over come my fear of her though sometimes I can't help but get the shiver near the end of the movie.

I watched the little mermaid when I was two and TO This DAY I still have Ursula nightmares, in fact, before going on the little mermaid ride in Disney last summer, I was having a panic attack and really didn't want to see Ursula, now my fear isn't as bad as before, but I'm still scared of her

Ursula was the reason why I was afraid to watch "The Little Mermaid" as a child. She had such an effect on me that I didn't even get to the part where she grew all huge. - anniecassidy

She is a monster!

5 Maleficent - Sleeping Beauty Maleficent - Sleeping Beauty

Honestly, someone needs to upgrade this list. But yeah, Maleficent is pretty scary, but I think Scar is the scariest.

I was a little boy, and her laughs give me chills down my spine. - asantalo

6 Judge Frollo - The Hunchback of Notre Dame Judge Frollo - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

I don't know why Frollo is ranked so low. He is super scary! He was so evil he was literally thrown into hell! The gargoyle he fell with symbolizes God throwing Frollo into hell! That is horrifying after watching that part of the film I get nightmares for a week.

Frollo is the most realistic Disney villain... he represents society's many flaws and is terrifying as hell

Judge Frollo is supposed to be the scariest Disney villain because he doesn't have any powers and yet he still can get the job done. If Disney villains would become realistic, Frollo will do the same exact thing.

The guy's face. Enough said.

7 Monstro - Pinocchio

I never wanted to watch Pinocchio because of this underwater devil. Though I'm surprised that he's higher on this list then The Coachman.

This monstrosity gives Bruce a run for his money!

8 The Evil Queen - Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

The old hag is so freaky! I have always been scared of her! Why is she only 8 she is scarier than ursula and maleficent - Disneyfan2005

9 Madame Medusa - The Rescuers Madame Medusa - The Rescuers

She's kinda scary but Mcleach from rescuers 2 is even scarier


10 Cruella DeVille - 101 Dalmatians

She is scary she tried to take one the Dalmatian pups and she got into a huge argument with the guy who own the Dalmatians when he said they weren't for sale she looks creepy

She looks like a living skeleton!


The Contenders

11 Summerween Trickster - Gravity Falls

No face just gotten creepier and tastier

15 Scroop - Treasure Planet

VERY creepy but cool. I've never seen Treasure Planet but I already love Scroop - RedTheGremlin

16 Myrtle - Lilo and Stich

She's totally frightening, am I right?

Scary really? How could myrtle possibly be scary she's not even dangerous,she is just a little brat if anyone on lilo and stitch is scary it is gantu

17 Judge Doom - Who Framed Roger Rabbit

This guy gave me nightmares

He's the guy who killed bambi's mother

18 Mor'du - Brave

This guy is creepy. He is also the most hideous looking bear I have ever seen my entire life

Who wouldn't be scared of a massive, scarred, invincible bear with the strength of 10 men?

19 The Ghost of Christmas Future - Disney's A Christmas Carol

I understand that the ghost's purpose is to give Scrooge a chance at redemption.

Chasing Scrooge around London while riding a phantom hearse is one thing but shrinking him to the size of the Borrowers? That's a step too far.

He's literally the GRIM REAPER!

20 Bill Cipher - Gravity Falls Bill Cipher - Gravity Falls Bill Cipher is a triangular dream demon formerly existent only in the mindscape who wished to gain access to the real world. He has been running amok in Gravity Falls, Oregon since being summoned by Stanford Pines over thirty years ago. He is known for his mysterious demeanor and sadistic humor. He more.

You might think a floating triangle with one eye isn't scary, but look at what he does. He rips deer teeth straight out of that deer's mouth, possesses a kid and nearly kills him, causes your nightmares, AND HE'S CAUSING THE WEIRD APOCALYPSE RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK! He's even classified as a dream demon! These other Disney villains can go take a hike. They're no match with Bill Cipher. - StevenU
