Top 10 Villains In Animated ShowsMegaSoulhero These villains may be evil but we still think they are cool.
The Top Ten
Yeah, he's cool
HAHA! Gravity Falls is one of my favorite shows of all time! I was very sad when it ended. One of my favorite characters in the show was Bill Cipher. Bill is a one eyed triangle guy who is very manipulative and is great at causing chaos. He can also enter people's minds. He entered Grunkle Stan's mind to help Gideo figure out the code to the safe that holds the deed to the Mystery Shack. He also took over Dipper's body so he could steal the journal. He even took over all of Gravity Falls by breaking the rift causing Weirdmageddon to happen. He was ultimately defeated when Stan and Ford tricked him into going in Stan's mind and used the memory gun on him. I was kind of sad when Bill died even though he deserved to. In the form of a backward message, he said "My time has come to burn! I evoke the ancient power that I may return! " Can this mean something? Maybe. - MegaSoulhero
Me at people who didn't vote Bill: "Its funny how dumb you are! "
I love Bill Cipher. I love everything about him.20 Comments
The shape-shifting master of darkness himself is not only the living embodiment of evil. He's also the living embodiment of everything you need to make a great animated villain. Sinister while simultaneously having a dark sense of humor ranging from his ever-famous "Extra thick! " phrase that has recently spawned a popular Internet meme to his fights with Jack, Aku is without a doubt a memorable and enjoyable antagonist, being one of the best ones in all of animation. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I've only seen a few episodes of Samurai Jack. It was an ok show but the absolutely best character in the show was Aku! Fun Fact: Aku means "evil" in Japanese. So it's very fitting for his personality. He has the ability to shape shift. So he can transform into whatever he wants to. His other abilities include time travel, teleportation, telekenesis, laser eye beams, and others. He is a very cool villain and a very powerful one. - MegaSoulhero
When there's trouble you know who to call. Teen Titans! I liked this show a lot and it had some very cool villains. But the best out of all of them is Slade (voiced by Ron Perlman). He tries his hardest to destroy the Teen Titans and take over the world. His reasons were never explained but he is very menacing and a definite threat. He never appeared in Teen Titans Go, however. Teen Titans Go sucks! - MegaSoulhero
It’s hard to choose him over Bill Cipher, but I must
Slade is the best villain ever
You can't expect me to make a list about the best villains and not include The Joker. He is The Joker! One of the most memorable comic book villains of all time! Joker is very awesome and in my opinion, the best thing to ever come from the Batman comics. - MegaSoulhero
I, Mojo Jojo, will do his best to make his way into the top 5 in order to be known as one of the greatest animated villains of all time! If Mojo Jojo cannot be in the top 5 or at least remain in the top 10, I will just go back to my evil lair and read the newspaper! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I just like saying his name
Avatar: The Last Airbender was definitely the best show Nickelodeon ever had. As for the movie, oh wait, never mind. There wasn't a Last Airbender movie directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Silly me :p Anyway, Fire Lord Ozai is the ruler of the Fire Nation. He's also the father of Prince Zuko and Princess Azula. Ozai wanted to take control of the world and in order to do that, he needed to destroy the Avatar. He eventually gets defeated when Aang entered the Avatar state. Ozai was definitely the best villain in the show. - MegaSoulhero
I don't know if I like Rebels better or the Clone Wars. Doesn't matter. Let's talk about The Inquisitor! He had an interest in destroying the Rebel crew aboard their starship known as the Ghost. He has had battles with Ezra and Kanan on several occasions. He worked with Darth Vader and followed his orders. Although, knowing that Vader would give The Inquisitor a punishment worse than death if he kept failing, he chose to fall to his death. Very wise. - MegaSoulhero
I really like SpongeBob, or at least I did until season 5 started. One of the things that made SpongeBob so great was Plankton. I find this villain to be very hilarious at times. He tries his hardest to steal the Krabby Patty formula from the Krusty Krab. He comes with these complicated methods to try to get it. These plans often fail. It's either because of poor planning or because Mr. Krabs is always there to stop him. He's such a little guy but still an evil genius. And of course he can't do it without the help of his computer wife, Karen. - MegaSoulhero
I never knew how far Plankton would go until, the 2004 movie came out and he enslaved Bikini bottom and built a dictatorship.
In modern Spongebob he is by far the best character. I’ve always wanted to see him be successful in his business without getting crushed by Mr. Krabs after. - ForestFeline
Yes! Plankton is amazing1 Comment
Dr. Doofenshmirtz is potheticly hilarious
Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated. Run by the evil "genius" Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. His goal in life is to take over the Tri-State Area and to do that, he builds a bunch of machines that he calls "inators". Some of these inators are brilliant and some of them are stupid. He also has a habit of installing self-destruct buttons. That is insanely hilarious. His plans tend to fail because he is always stopped by his enemy, Perry the Platypus. Personally, I find Doofenshmirtz to be one of the funniest villains ever. His evil plans can be so bad and fail in so many ways that I can't help but laugh. - MegaSoulhero
Woahwoahwoah... ONLY #9?! No, he's not only the most hilarious cartoon character EVER, he also has a tragic backstory that MAKES him better! Plus, he's an evil genius who can never get anything done, and he's only #9. Yeah, suure. - LarkwingFlight
Dio is a pure bastard villain! - xribas360
Dio is super op
Adventure Time has had some great villains but the one that I think is the best is The Lich (voiced by Ron Perlman). The Lich's main goal is to destroy all life. His overall appearance is very frightening and definitely makes him seem like a threat. Later on in the series, he gets a new personality and becomes an infant by the name of Sweet P. - MegaSoulhero
A true classic. Maybe not well written. Maybe he almost never gets what he wants. But an iconic villain and sure as hell can be terrifying and when he is well written and gets what he wants, it leads to interesting results. I love Megatron.
Mission: Kim Possible! I really liked this show. It was awesome. I also really like the villain, Dr. Drakken. Drakken is a blue skinned evil scientist who strives for world domination. He is very intelligent and always comes up with inventions to take over the world. He even has a very hot assistant. Shego! - MegaSoulhero
The most underrated villain in my opinion - PerfectImpulseX
HOW DID NO ONE PUT THIS GUY ON THE LIST
One cannot leave out such the most debonair and cunning billionaire human-ghost hybrid antagonist with a tragic backstory and responsibility for some of the most comedic moments in an American animated series created by Butch Hartman, one of Nickelodeon's best cartoonists and one of the WORLD's best cartoonists. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
This is the villain from the adventure of the 4 a show who will be relased in 2017
He is the ocolește villain of all times. Even better than darth vader
One of the darkest and most complex antagonists Cartoon Network has ever created.
He got somewhat tamed down in later seasons, and his first appearance still remains his best, but he still is a charming antagonist on occasions.
Discord is the best
He is so funny
Vilgax is truly the best villain in Ben 10. He is also the best in every other Ben 10 series. He is the best in Ben 10 Alien Force. In one episode, he gets extremely close to destroying Ben (and the world). In the same episode. He easily defeats Grandpa Max, Gwen, Kevin, XLR8, Heatblast, and Four Arms. He was also one of the main villains in Ben 10 Ultimate Alien. I hope he is in the new Ben 10 series that comes out in 2017.
Yes! I love Vilgax.
Perhaps the most underrated villain on this list, Toffee is calculating, remorseless, and willing to do whatever it takes to enact revenge. - Synchronocity
He is pure evil did you watch the movie but I go for bill I love bill without him no gravityfalls
I’m sad he didn’t make it on the list. He’s a great villain, threatening, deceitful, manipulative. Just all around great - KronosHunter
He's a really cool baddie but happily turns good at the end
Obake is the mysterious villain done right, he's manipulative, clever, and can play with the heros. He's probably the main reason I kept watching this series.
Not even close! - Synchronocity
