Best Sonic the Hedgehog Villains


The Top Ten

1 Dr. Eggman Dr. Eggman Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.

... I would have picked Metal Sonic, but since Robotnik is the only one here that's worthy of villainess, I chose him. :)

And Rouge as #1? Seriously?!


He may be a bad villain, but he just NEVER gives up.

Best Egghead In The Planet - JPK

2 Mephiles the Dark Mephiles the Dark

Awesome and as you said he is the only villain who has killed sonic and with his powers of time travel if you were to defeat him he could just go back in time and fix what he did wrong and as someone said before he is not confirmed to be completely gone from the sonic universe.

His presence always left chills and his theme is nothing short of creepy.

Don't forget his evil laugh after killing sonic. Plus he might be the time eater in sonic generations

3 Scourge the Hedgehog

He's... The king baby. - SoulDeathTheKidMaka414

Scourge is just plain awesome

Just look at my user pic and name! - ScourgetheHedgehog

4 Shadow the Hedgehog

He's Not Bad Nor Good So Shadow Just Does Things For His Own Purpose Same With Rouge, And The Babylon Rouges.

Shadow is neutral. NOT A VILLAIN.

Not Evil, Though Kinda Questionable At Times - JPK

Everyone loves Shadow! ^_^ - ScourgetheHedgehog

5 Metal Sonic Metal Sonic Metal Sonic is one of Eggman’s fastest and most powerful creations. Programed to be better than Sonic in any aspect possible, he can shoot electro balls, shoot electricity downward, do a boost, and make himself invincible. He fight’s Sonic each time he gets stronger, and when he gains enough power, more.

The most badass and epic villain yet for the series, and he deserves to be treated better by SEGA. Like his Sonic Channel art suggests, he's not just some cool poser wannabe of Sonic: he's out to kill. He's a Reaper.

This list is very inaccurate and weird. Metal Sonic is my favorite though.

He is the most badass video game villain

6 Jet the Hawk Jet the Hawk

Jet the Hawk is my favorite Sonic character. - ShuhBanggg

Not Evil, Just Jerk (And A Likable One At That) - JPK

7 Infinite The jackal

This guy is awesome and deserves to be the best. If he was taken more seriously he would have been just amazing

Faster than Sonic, Metal Sonic and Shadow, flys better than Silver, stronger than Mephiles and great design and theme song, that's what it takes to be number one, TO BE INFINITE!

He's the best. I love him.

Is it ironic that I’m listening to his bad@ss theme as I vote for him? Lol
