Best Sonic the Hedgehog Villains

The Top Ten

1 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 mean come on! He’s like, that classic villain! (My 3rd favorite, probably! ) So of course HE was one of the ones that I had to vote for!

... 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.

2 Mephiles the Dark

Whenever I see him, he reminds me of the song called I Am A God by Kanye West.

Awesome villain. Too bad he was put in one of the worst games in the Sonic franchise. Hope he returns.

He stole Shadow’s shadow, became the cause of the apocalypse, tricked Silver making him a rival to Sonic and KILLED Sonic by himself in only 10 seconds while Eggman failed for 30 years! He is the absolute best!

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.

3 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.

Sonic the hedgehog was released in Super Mario bros,and it will be remembered as the single greatest Sonic game of all time, but honestly I think the best game ever made by your house is the final boss of Super Metroid Prime Hunters is the final result in his channel and usually runs through your house is the final boss of Metroid Prime Hunters is the best game ever made by your house is the final boss of Metroid Prime Hunters is that can withstand

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

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.

He gets used too much. - Smash64

4 Shadow the Hedgehog

My fave character, so he’s another character that I just HAD to vote for.

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.

Correction, Shadow is not a villain he's an anti-hero.

5 Scourge the Hedgehog

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

Scourge is just plain awesome

Just look at my user pic and name! - ScourgetheHedgehog

6 Infinite The jackal

Infinite is another one of my favorite villains, and he is SO cool! Such a cool, and powerful villain.

The best of all the EDGY characters in sonic
And has also a great theme song

He need more info cause he awesome he like Mephiles but cooler but he is so difficult to fight him in his boss battles

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

7 Jet the Hawk Jet the Hawk is a character from SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog series. Jet is very arrogant, prideful, and always seeks riches and fortunes. While also the Babylon Rogues' leader, Jet rarely takes his responsibilities seriously, though he knows how to assert his authority.

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

Jet the Hawk is my favorite Sonic character. - ShuhBanggg

8 Chaos

He isn't REALLY a villain, I believe he is angry about something..maybe that's the reson?

He’s my favorite Sonic villain at least, so I HAD to have him as one of my votes

How is he so low on this list?!

Just... nice

9 Rouge the Bat

Like Shadow, Rouge is not evil and is not a villain. Rouge is an anti-hero who is super sexy, seductive, mischievous and intelligent (on duty). But sometimes she’s selfish and greedy when it comes to her addiction of jewels, chaos emeralds and even the master emerald. All in all she’s neutral.

Um... I don't remember Rouge being a villain...

Not Evil, Just Does Stuff For Her Own Purposes - JPK

Best Sonic character ever! - girlcool

10 Doctor Finitevus

The Newcomers

? Conquering Storm

The Contenders

11 Mammoth Mogul
12 Dimitri
13 Silver the Hedgehog

Why is he on this list?

Silver is just the best, no further comments

Uhh silver isn't a villain

Sure Silver can be temperamental at times when he’s interrupted in his completing missions, but Silver is definitely not evil or a villain. He’s a good guy not a bad guy.

14 The Metarex

Best sonic villians in history

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

Already been #1 damn yall get confuse

16 Ixis "Walter" Naugus
17 Fang the Sniper
18 Doctor Julian Snively

He Should Be Number 1 He Is The Best Villian

19 Grand Battle Kukku
20 Fleetway Sonic

I figured I might as well just vote for another one of the Sonics :d

Who doesn't love the craziest sonic form who looks like super sonic + sonic.exe

21 Snively
22 Eclipse the Darkling

Honestly he’s a great villain and I wish people talked about him more so ya basically that’s it

23 Wave the Swallow
24 Bean the Dynamite
25 Erazor Djinn

He's so evil and twisted with a purpose. He cheated an entire book to keep a girlfriend.

26 Zavok

Zavok Zazz Zomon Master Zik Zeena Zor

Come on! These guys are awesome in Sonic Lost World and Zavok in Sonic Forces. There's no way these guys won't make the list

I hate that villain,that I love him

27 Knuckles the Echidna Knuckles the Echidna is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a red anthropomorphic echidna who is determined and serious, but sometimes gullible. He has the ability to glide and climb up walls, and is a powerful fighter due to his spiked hands.

Not bad watch sonic boom

28 Nazo

I would've loved to see him in Sonic X. I hope he appears in an actual Sonic game. So cool! - Smash64

He’s also a pretty cool villain (one of my favorite villains), even though he’s fan made

Nazo is not canon is desing is official but is history is from a fan & nazo is a fan name because sega website post a image with this mystery hedgehog call Nazo.jpg but Nazo is not a name Nazo means mystery in Japanish

29 Fiona Fox


30 Blaze the Cat

This is wrong. Blaze is good not evil.

This is ridiculous Blaze is NOT a villain.

Wait... Blaze is not evil?

You are right.

31 Black Doom
32 Solaris

We already have Solaris.


33 Lyric

Another unnecessary addition to an already large cast of characters. - Smash64

He's literally underrated, and fans completely ignore his character

34 Merlina


35 Sonia the Hedgehog

She is not a villain at all, she's under the freedom fighters in the show she came from

Who's the dingus that added Sonia? She's not of the one, far from 1.

36 Storm the Albatross
37 Gemerl
38 Eggman Nega
39 Zazz

The crazy, purple master is here. He's just so cool! In Sonic Colours, he was such a cool character! He's hilarious!

40 Metal Knuckles

Why was this guy only in one game?!

41 Iblis
42 Dark Oak
43 Zeena
44 Shard the Metal Sonic
45 Devil Doom

Need I say more?

46 Zor

I like him. He's so cute and emo!

This Emo, is just so cool.
