Best True Blood Villains

True Blood is arguably one of the great shows of all time with the most outrageous villains viewers love to hate!
The Top Ten
1 Russell Edgington

I actually thought he was the worst villain and dragged the show down after he was introduced. He was super powerful, but as far as personality goes, he was a run of the mill psychopath without any interesting qualities to carry his story. Every time they introduced a new interesting plotline, they would crush it and bring him back, often directly from his own doing. Nah, not a fan.

Russell was the best and worst thing that happened to the True Blood villains, what I mean by that, is that his performance was so masterful he become the standard of which all other future villains on this show would be judge by. and in my opinion... All others have fallen short. from Marnie to the Authority, the Governor. Warlow and Lilith, non of them have even come close to matching Russell Egdgington.

Yeah... I'm sure his spirit will come back eventually, even if he can't come back to the land of the living / undead! He's a classic!

Best villain of all time... He made television history snatching out a news anchor's spinal cord that was epic!

2 Maryann Forrester

I found Maryann a better villain than Russell Edgington. People talk about the news anchor scene, but people must have a short memory as Maryann pulled out a woman's heart and served it in a pie. Not to mention she got the entire town of Bon Temps brainwashed, naked, participating in orgies, and worshipping her. Not to mention that she is immune from a vampire bite.

Maryann the maenad was the first villain on the show to take over Bon Temps by turning everyone into demons and having them participate in several rituals including unbelievable orgies.

She was on part of one season and then all the next. She was mysterious, her power was just too great even for vamps and yet you sympathized with her.

Her power was ultimate, she was the true badass and all to be reunited with her lover and god!

3 Sophie-Anne Leclerq

Although this queen may not come out as a Malicious villain as some of the others her irresistable personality was unforgettable.

4 Salome Agrippa

Despite being a new edition to the series, Salome has viewers begging for her to be staked from the moment they saw her and their desires continue to grow within every episode seeing Salome manipulate and seduce anyone.

Such an intriguing character and villain. She was the oldest vampire on the show (unless you include Lilith). I loved her story line and Valentina Cervi played her amazingly.

I like her nude scenes

5 Antonia Gavilán de Logroño

The powerful wiccans that almost succeeded in their plan to destroy vampires by unleashing a spell to make them walk into the sun!

6 Franklin Mott

This vampire may be considered a sociopath, but he was hilarious in every part he had.

7 Lorena Krasiki

How can anyone forget Lorena she was obsessed with Bill which made her very entertaining to say the least.

8 Rene Lenier/Drew Marshall

This charming friendly guy was the least anyone suspected of being behind the murders in Bon Temps during season one, but in the end he revealed his true colors by showing everyone how insane he truly was.

9 Steve Newlin
10 Debbie Pelt

This drug addict werewolf had viewers talking for months after the season four cliffhanger of Debbie blowing off part of Tara's head (one of the best cliffhangers ever) and that brawl between her and rival Sookie in season three taking place in Sookie's bedroom was great!

The Contenders
11 Eric Northman
