Best Villains Who Aren't Evil

Antagonists who aren't really bad people. SPOILERS AHEAD.

The Top Ten

1 Jigsaw - Saw Jigsaw - Saw

Delusional, but a good person at heart. - DylanRob

2 Javert - Les Misérables Javert - Les Misérables

So you're saying that a Slave Driver isn't evil because he lived in a time period where slavery was punishment? Sure, let's just ignore the fact that he tortures people for stealing bread of all things. People who were brainwashed as children are still evil, whether you like it or not. Members of ISIS were taught that it's okay to kill people as children and do we excuse their bad behavior because they were taught to kill others? No. - DCfnaf

A product of his time period. - DylanRob

3 Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) - Psycho Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) - Psycho Norman Bates is a character created by writer Robert Bloch as the main character in his novel Psycho, and portrayed by Anthony Perkins as the primary antagonist of the 1960 film of the same name directed by Alfred Hitchcock and its sequels.

Mentally ill. - DylanRob

4 Judge Claude Frollo - The Hunchback of Notre-Dame Judge Claude Frollo - The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

Most of Frollo's actions are easy to empathize with in retrospect. His hatred of gypsies is pretty justified in the context of the movie. His views on torture are simply a product of the time period. And his treatment of Quasimodo is easily explained when you take into account that he mistook him for a demon at first and was completely right about how the outer world would view/treat him. As for his murderous streak, it's really a side effect of him going insane more than anything. - DylanRob

5 Jack Torrance - The Shining Jack Torrance - The Shining

Again, more of a tragic villain. - DylanRob

6 Noah Percy - The Village Noah Percy - The Village

Not actually evil. Mentally ill. - DylanRob

7 Duchess - Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends Duchess - Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

The closest she came to hurting anyone was in the pilot. Otherwise, she's pretty harmless most of the series. - DylanRob

8 Custard The Cat - Strawberry Shortcake Custard The Cat - Strawberry Shortcake

Again, how could anyone consider her a villain? - DylanRob

Boss Cat is best villain. - Custard

9 Starlight Glimmer - My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic Starlight Glimmer - My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic Starlight Glimmer is a recurring character, initially an antagonist, in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She first appears in the season 5 premiere, The Cutie Map. From The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 2 to Celestial Advice, she is Twilight Sparkle's student in the ways of friendship.

I'm not a big fan of this character but I figured she was a good pick for the list because she was technically not very evil. Just delusional and sociopathic. - DylanRob

10 Baron Zemo - Captain America: Civil War Baron Zemo - Captain America: Civil War Baron Zemo is the name of two fictional supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

He was an ordinary guy from Sokovia who thought the Avengers were responsible for the death of the population and his family during their last battle.

11 Jane Kangaro - Horton Hears a Who Jane Kangaro - Horton Hears a Who

Had no idea that there were actually people on that flower. - DylanRob

12 The Winter Soldier - Captain America: the Winter Soldier
13 Dr Octavius - Spiderman 2
14 Yokai - Big Hero 6
15 Light Yagami - Death Note Light Yagami - Death Note Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.
