Top Ten Video Game VillainsFwingsnitch
The Top Ten
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.
Wow, Bowser is number one on the Top Ten Most Iconic Video Game Villains. What a surprise. Wait, this isn't the most iconic villains, it's just best villains? Then why the hell is he number one? - toptenzen
Bowser is usually the first guy to come to mind when you're thinking on the subject of video game villains.
Bowser is not just my favorite villain, but also probably my favorite character period. ;u; Every time I think of him I instantly get at least a bit happier. ;v; Fanboy stuff aside I love Bowser because of what he is - a powerhungry king who is also well-regarded by his men, a loving father and a nigh-unstoppable force to anyone whose name isn't Mario or Luigi. He's egotistical, yes, but he makes sure that he lives up to it, every single time, especially in Bowser's Inside Story, in which it could be considered his own game plus Mario's - and the day he gets a *true* game of his own without sharing a spotlight is the day I demand Nintendo to have all of my money. He *deserves* his #1 spot - he's earned it! ovoV 20 Comments
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
Ganondorf is my favourite Nintendo villain because he's a wizard who is basically a tank with emense strength, manipulation, dark powers etc.V 10 Comments
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'm not sure if the Joker counts as a VIDEO GAME villainV 11 Comments
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.
I'm a sucker for sympathetic villainsV 10 Comments
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.
I shall always remember Death egg robot, metal sonic, and omega
He is the E.G.G.M.A.N. before saying that he is now turned into a joke remember the Scrap Brain Zone in 1991. He has the potential to take over the world.V 1 Comment
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.
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.
He is the best villain hands down across all forms of media, why isn’tV 2 Comments
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.
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.V 2 Comments
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
Actually did what every other villain tried to do
He destroys part of the Earth AND became a god. Much better than others FF villains, especially Exdeath.V 2 Comments
This guy is so awesome! He should be at top 10
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.
This dude taught me the definition of insanity - the_only_sane_person_alive
"I'll give 10 grand to the first person who gives me Jason's nutsack."V 5 Comments
For me fawful was awful.(see what I did there? )
I have fury that Fawful is eleven!
HE's GOT CHORTLES AND FURY!
HE'S NOT NUMBER 1 OR 2!?!?V 4 Comments
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.V 2 Comments
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.
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.
A cold blooded killer who isn't above big airport massacres. "Remember, no Russian". - mom4
He has made a massacre come on!V 4 Comments
I hate this guy so much, he manipulated ness, killed Lucas's mom and brother and caused wreak havoc on the whole WORLD
He was Pretty twisted for a kid with no super natral powers, but he ended up cuasing much havic.V 2 Comments
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!
Awesome villans and they're zombies how awesome is that. In Halo 4 the flood are terrifiying. I'm just glad they made them look and sound scary instead of just making them spartans with energy swords like in Reach.V 3 Comments
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.
Gannon is the reincarnation of gannondorf aka demise so that means he's on the list 3 times meaning he is most popular.V 1 Comment
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
Unlike most of the other villains on this list, he had a reason for doing what he did.
This is best from all the villains
Galactic from pokemon is similar to galaxic from final fantasy
One of the most intimidating and awesome bosses
One of the hardest bosses on a nintend game. His face alone can scare small childrenV 1 Comment
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
He can just flick Bowser on SSBB, He may be cute, but an epic villain, even though he's an anti hero. - Mewbosses
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
He has the swag
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
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.
This four armed beast proved to be more frustrating to fight than any other boss character in any fight game. - egnomac
Mileena is bad ass. She is unique fighter. Mileena should be in the top 10. She is the most evil female character in mortal kombat history. - Magnolia
I love mileena she is my number 1 favorite villain of all time she is the best female character in Mk and I hope they bring her back for Mk x take that green scorpion
