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!

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

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.

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

I don't now much but he will make my blood go cold

Say what you want, haters.
But Judge Frollo is scary enough
to beat your asses up!

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.

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 Summerween Trickster - Gravity Falls

No face just gotten creepier and tastier

That face so yummy

The Contenders

11 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!

12 The Coachman - Pinnocchio

"They won't be coming back... As BOYS! "

15 Scroop - Treasure Planet
16 Judge Doom - Who Framed Roger Rabbit

He's the guy who killed bambi's mother

This guy gave me nightmares

17 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?

18 Myrtle - Lilo and Stich

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

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!
