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
I think Bowser is the number one villain because of his sheer strength and determination which put together make a deadly combination for any villain
He is just so damn badass!V 25 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.
How is Glados not 1
And how is Vaas not in the top ten?
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.
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.
Terrifyingly enigmatic but also humorous.V 5 Comments
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.
He Blew Up Half OF THE MOON as a warning shot, a demonstration He cracked the EARTH itself into 7 pieces. He Unleashed The GOD OF DESTRUCTION TO THE WORLD..
Yet he is Number 5
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.
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
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
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
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.
No even top ten?V 8 Comments
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
Which one is more evil a drugged turtle that repeatedly steals a princess or a guy that tortured, killed millions, nuked, raped, brainwashed killed ghost :( killed yuri :( nearly killed price about half a dozen times killed soap and most importantly pised price off a heap...V 4 Comments
For me fawful was awful.(see what I did there? )
What fink rats put him at 16?! I HAVE FURY!
I have fury that Fawful is eleven!
HE'S NOT NUMBER 1 OR 2!?!?V 5 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
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 was Pretty twisted for a kid with no super natral powers, but he ended up cuasing much havic.
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.
Those infection forms will tear you apart!V 1 Comment
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
THIS GUY IS SO FUNNY SOMETIMES I THOUGHT HE SHOULD WIN
LAWRENCE! LAWRENCE? LAWWWRENCEE!
Unlike most of the other villains on this list, he had a reason for doing what he did.
This guy is the ultamate villan
Carlo Falcone is a ruthless double crossing mobster. Of course he's more villainous than some mutant turtle crybaby.
This is best from all the villains
Galactic from pokemon is similar to galaxic from final fantasy
No one can trust him even his own men
One of the most intimidating and awesome bosses
One of the hardest bosses on a nintend game. His face alone can scare small children
Me:yes! I finally defeated him!
Marx soul:(screams loudly)
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
This dude/machine set out to destroy all organic life. Big deal, makarov shot up an airport, sovereign ass raped entire fleets and planets
The reason I like Mephiles is that he was an amazing villain in a game full of bland characters.
Why the hell is he so low?! He is the best villain ever (in my opinion)!
He is a demon and he killed sonic.
