Top Ten Video Game Villains
The Top Ten
Bowser also teams up with Mario in multiple games and goes karting, golfing, and does other fun activities with the brothers. He is also caring for his boy Bowser Jr. and genuinely cares about him, even going so far as to lie to him about Peach being his mother so he won't be motherless like him. He also has some sick castles and is a master designer. Plus, his wedding outfit is pretty fly. - MasterBeef
He always succeeds in capturing Peach. Mario has to save her over and over again. Get this, the only Mario games that Mario beats him in hand-to-hand combat are the rpgs. Every other time has him tricking Bowser by using his enemy's bridge to escape. - MasterBeef
Only Bowser can display such a developed personality while trying to accomplish a simple goal. He's a king with an army, and he is determined to achieve his goal no matter what. He has even defeated his enemy before. If you don't think Bowser is the greatest villain in video games, you clearly lack knowledge about him.
Bowser described in a nutshell, is the Darth Vader of video games. His look, his role in the Mario universe, sure he's always doing the same thing, kidnapping Princess Peach in order to controll the Mushroom Kingdom, but his rivalry with the iconic protagonist only makes him an even better character. If you ever mention video game villains, Bowser is usually the first to come to mind.
he never dies even with a sword stabbed in his heart or head ude
till "killing" him rocks
aside from the joker, this should be #1
This should be number notice I didn't say he but ganondorf wants to kill every body and rule the earth while bowser just wants peach and ganondorf has been revised som many times
His theme song should have been take a look around by limp bizkit
Bowser, Ganondorf, etc. are fine, but they're boring. They're just generic "I'm the bad guy who wants to take over the world" villains. GlaDOS is so much more. Out of these villains, she's the most interesting because despite her being a robot, she's the most human. She has motivations for her actions, but they're different than "I want to take over the world". Her character is complex, sometimes she hates the player, other times she is amused by the player, other times you can even catch a bit of sympathy. Her character has a level of depth unmatched by the generic "TAKE OVER THE WORLD! " villains that plague video games today.
Sigh. GLaDOS should be #1. She's funny, psychopathic, and while usually sadistic, she does have a degree of humanity in her, although if you told her that, she'd kill you with a deadly neurotoxin.
Now, this artificial intelligence discovered to like killing people. And so she does with her test subjects. You, the protagonist, have the bad luck to be one of them.
An AI robot created from a woman who didn't want to partake in the experiment. Even more, as Chel is leaving, those adorable little turrets sing a song only a mother would sing to her daughter, implying that GlaDOS may actually be Chel's mother.
The thing that makes Joker so difficult to defeat, and so awesome, is his unpredictability. He causes destruction for the sake of destruction. Will he target one guy? Will he target a whole city? You'll never know. If that doesn't make a villain, what does? - DamonRageDevil
The Joker is a villian who has been around since the 1940s. He is one of the most iconic and consistently popular characters in popular culture ever. Mark Hamill has provided the character with the best voice possible for nearly 20 years.
The greatest villain of all time
I like the Joker and all, but I don't think it would be fair to call him a video game villain. Probably a comic book villain or something of that nature.
This guy mocks you every step of the way, hilarious, and everything he does makes you want to kill him. His origin as a Hero turned Villain is excellent. He's hilarious, unpredictable, thinks he's the hero the entire time and mocks you by calling you the "bad guy" (SERIOUSLY! ), and does a lot of terrible things including killing off certain people whom I won't say who they are! He's in my top 5, for sure!
A man who truly believes he is the hero all the while caging and forcing his daughter to help wake a monster to commit mass genocide and when you finally kill him, he still haunting Pandora as an A.I. what a great villain.
Complete bastard, just someone you love to hate.
Also sticks around with you the whole game and just loves to mock you and threaten you in the end you get sweet sweet revenge.
This guy is so awesome! He should be at top 10
This dude taught me the definition of insanity - the_only_sane_person_alive
Vaas was the best villain in any game... the first time I played FarCry 3 the begging was a twist. I thought it was real but it was Vaas showing me a video. If Vaas was real, I think he would be about the same as Hitler in evil.
Did I ever tell you the definition of insanity?
Actually did what every other villain tried to do
This psychopath is AWESOME! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Oh god that laugh he has...
The Joker in gaming
How can you not vote for him? Bad ass. Enough said.
He's also a pain in the ass to beat if you don't have
A infinite rocket launcher. I looked at my stats and he got
The most kills off of me. He killed me exactly 52 times. So yeah,
Get infinite rocket launcher.
Not only is Wesker an original villain but also the coolest due to the fact he's in control of the virus in a way and the sunglasses add on to it
Not just my favourite game villain but also my all round favourite game character
Wesker is the guy you love to hate in resident evil. It is also great to play as him.
Nobody is more badass than Sephiroth. Everything he does and says is awesome. He has the coolest sword ever too. Anyone who doesn't think he should be #1 either hasn't played FF7 or is an idiot.
Considering he's got his own movie, killed tons of people,
He's got his own theme, fangirls, and remnants. Better than that Joker ripoff
Are you kidding me? This guy has gitta b the most badas villain calling has ever seen. Check other polls. Full find him to b the toughest villain to find his way into games
Bowser is Iconic and all, but compared to what Eggman has actually achieved, he is nothing.
He has a huge robot army, released dark gai a super powerful being sealed in the earth's core shattering the world into several pieces, created the time eater to erase time n space he created neo metal sonic a robot that scans the data of anything and uses its powers. In sonic forces he used the phantom ruby which creates countless copies if anything n bring virtual reality illusions to life.he capture sonic take over most of the earth n literally drops the sun on the earth
I shall always remember Death egg robot, metal sonic, and omega
Dude number 4 pleases
Alright, he might not be the best but he IS BETTER THEN BOWSER! He literally kills of Mario, Peach, Luigi and even Bowser (you play as bowser). He commits universal genocide also. Then even when he dies he has a shadow of his power to continue the destruction of worlds.
Makarov is one hell of a bad guy. He slaughtered dozens of people in an airport, killed 30,000 men with a nuke and killed Soap Mctavish.
You guys are all crazy, Makarov killed more people in one airport massacre then the rest of the villains on this list combined in their lifetime.
A cold blooded killer who isn't above big airport massacres. "Remember, no Russian". - mom4
He is cold-bloodiest person in the world
BEST VILLAIN EVER! Besides, having a woman in armor with extremely harmful laser beams and an alien space dragon with more laser beams makes a pretty suspenseful match.
The best kind of villain is one who Is evIl but Is humanIzed and that you can sympathize with and nobody fits that description better than Andrew Ryan.
He is an amazing character who is so twisted that he almost convinces you he's right. He's a dominating and charismatic personality, indeed.
What fink rats put him at 16?! I HAVE FURY!
For me fawful was awful.(see what I did there? )
I have fury that Fawful is eleven!
HE's GOT CHORTLES AND FURY!
If A villain is badass enough to kill the main protagonist at the end, he is one of the best villains of all time
It's Hitler. No explanation needed.
I just love his theme and the fact he is both a doctor and a zombie.
This guy had manipulated terra, caused him to willingly kill his master and friend, Eraqus, through pure convincing, then single handedly separated the worlds of the universe from eachother and created the pure blood and emblem heartless. He then released his own heart from his own body in order to purposely become a heartless himself as well as a nobody, which both went on to seek kingdom hearts itself in order to gain unlimited knowledge and immortality. Then he finds out his original Organization XIII wasn’t good enough due to some leftover individuality in some of the members, and so he LITERALLY makes his younger self find 12 different incarnations of himself throughout time, and uses the dark half of Ventus, which is Vanitas, to capture Sora and make him the 13th member of the new Organization, which is of course thwarted by Riku and Mickey’s attempts to save Sora from the darkness. Not to mention that he has the oldest known Keyblade, which has the master of master’s eye ...more
Was the smartest villain and most dangerous one too almost taking out all the world power countries
Unlike most of the other villains on this list, he had a reason for doing what he did.
Best villain period
This guy is the ultamate villan
I hate this guy so much, he manipulated ness, killed Lucas's mom and brother and caused wreak havoc on the whole WORLD
At least Giygas has redeeming factors.
He is a great villain... BUT I STILL DESPISE HIM TO NO END!
He's on the list twice? Wow. He's that good?
When he's so good he's on the list twice
He is so good he had to be on the list twice. Number 2 and Number 18.
Dr. Nefarious is probably the only villain who is so bad that he will make you roll on the floor laughing your head off. And that's a good thing.
One of the funniest villians ever! He is
My favourite character from Ratchet and Clank series
THIS GUY IS SO FUNNY SOMETIMES I THOUGHT HE SHOULD WIN
LAWRENCE! LAWRENCE? LAWWWRENCEE!
They have NO regard for life at all! The gravemind is the smartest villain ever! He is VERY manipulative. The flood are to terrible that the forerunners KILLED THEMSELLVES! To stop the flood!
relentless KILL ALL LIVING BEINGS attitude
When it comes to villainy, it's hard to beat the flood. But on another note, Ganondorf and even Eggman are WAY better villains than Bowser!
Very deadly. Way harder to kill than bowser.
Definitely pissed me off more than any other bad guy ever
Dude seriously! Your evil twin-clone-brother who is the antithesis of your very existence, and then there was the showdown at the end of metal gear solid 4
I love Metal Gear Solid because of the great game play and storylines and every boss in the series is memorable
Why is he this low?
Chara could kill any hero, maybe even any villain. The best part is is that the player unlocks them.
He isn't a villain. Just your last challenge before you complete the game.
Revolver Ocelot is an damn better then any of these stupid Call of Duty enemies
He has the swag
In Mario Galaxy 2, Bowser Jr. Has these huge machines designed to kill you. I think that the Doomsday Machine is his best one.
Why is Bowser Jr here? He's just a whiny brat with an utterly annoying voice.
Bowser Junior is way better than his dad. his dad should be second. Bowser Junior ahould be number one. Bowser Junior is the one laughing in your face for the entire adventure ever since Super Mario Sunshine, not Bowser! Bowser is just there to steal away the final boss basttle! - HeavyDonkeyKong
The koopalings should take notes on how to be decent villians. They're lousy clones who do the same thing and are defeated in the exact same way. No wonder Bowser Jr outranks them.
No one can trust him even his own men
Why is she on the list, yes she is a boss, but she is not a villian. You only fight her when you invade her world, she was just living with her endermen, If anything, Steve is the villian. - DragonHarrier
Dedede is my favourite video game character ever, and sorry, he's not a villain, he's just a mischievous king. My favourite video game villain is Ganondorf - Nintendonix
The legendary Crouch...
He can just flick Bowser on SSBB, He may be cute, but an epic villain, even though he's an anti hero. - Mewbosses
We know the story between him and Tippi. Blumiere and Timpani, who were Bleck and Tippi respectively, are lovers. But they separated because of altering dimensions. We thought Count Bleck is the antagonist of Super Paper, but this villain had a change of heart when he realizes Dimentio wants the Chaos Heart for Himself. Count Bleck, one of my favorite villains of the Mario franchise, should be high.
