The Top Ten

1 Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty)

Especially the live action version - blackflower

2 Electro (Spiderman) Electro (Spiderman) Electro is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Maxwell "Max" Dillon, the first Electro, is an enemy of Spider-Man who gained the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning while working on a power line.

Especially in the amazing spiderman 2 - Batmaniscole

3 Sid (Toy Story)

I don't think Sid was the villain we perceived him to be. If you pay close attention to detail, it's obvious he was neglected. He didn't seem to have any friends that we know of, thanks to the scene when Buzz realizes that he is a toy, we know his Dad is a bit of lazy slob and a drunkard, and it's obvious he didn't have much of a relationship with his mother either. Honestly, who allows their kid to use explosives and blow things up in the backyard? And since he had no way of knowing that toys were sentient, he can't be a true villain. While Sid was a brat, he was simply a product of his environment. And he does give up his torturing of toys after finding out they're alive and being traumatized.

Where are his parents? He obviously destroys toys because of deep issues. - ToptenPizza

4 Robbie Rotten (Lazy Town) Robbie Rotten (Lazy Town) Robbie Rotten (played by Stefán Karl Stefánsson) is a lazy man who continuously formulates feckless schemes in which he masquerades in a disguise to lure the residents away from their newly-active lifestyles.

The true hero.

Everyone seems mad in Lazy Town.

He just wants to relax and eat some cake, but he is always disturbed by those annoying kids and S P O T A F L O P.

He is not bad he is only stupid

For being the protagonist, Peter can be quite cruel. He cut off Hook's hand and fed it to the crocodile for no reason except his own amusement. Now the crocodile follows Hook relentlessly to finish him off. And Peter seems to take a lot of pleasure in seeing Hook in life threatening situations. I can see why Hook wants revenge so badly.

He got his hand cut off for goodness sake - blackflower

I feel very sorry for Captain James Hook, Because His hand gets cut off by Peter Pan and throw it to the Crocodile.

Poor Captain James Hook, He was abused by the Flying Scurvy Brat called Peter Pan.
