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.

2 Mephiles the Dark 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.

I have a MASSIVE crush on him.


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

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

He's technically an anti-hero. - Smash64

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.

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.

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

He gets used too much. - Smash64

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.

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

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

best theme

He is the tallest of mountains, and the roughest of waves. He is toughest of terrors and the darkest of waves. He is the last one standing and he’s the sharpest of blades. He is stronger than knuckles, Metal Sonic, and Zavok, faster than Shadow, Metal Sonic, and Sonic himself. He is edgier than shadow and Mephiles. Need I say more?

8 Rouge the Bat 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

9 Doctor Finitevus
10 Mammoth Mogul

The Contenders

11 Dimitri
12 Silver the Hedgehog Silver the Hedgehog

Silver is just the best, no further comments

Why is he on this list?

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.

Uhh silver isn't a villain

22 Eclipse the Darkling

23 Fleetway Sonic
24 Erazor Djinn

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

25 Knuckles the Echidna 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

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

36 Dark Oak
37 Shard the Metal Sonic
38 Nazo

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