Top 10 Worst Disney Animated Villains

Disney has some very great villains! These ones are terrible examples. Let’s talk about them.

The Top Ten

1 Alameda Slim (Home on the Range)

He actually had the ability to be a really good villain, and I mean it. He's built up to be this terrifying and careless cowboy that takes whatever he wants. Heck, in the beginning of his song he sounds just like an evil disney cowboy...until he lits up the night by playing a country song on his banjo. Why? He could've made the movie WAY more memorable. But no, we got just a cringe-worthy cowboy villain. Why disney, why? - GreninjaGuy

Haha, hater didn't find list yet

Makes Ratcliffe look like Frollo and Edgar look like a male Maleficent. - 445956

Looks too cringey.

2 Governor Ratcliffe (Pocahontas)

He's greedy and wants to get rid of the Native Americans. That's it. He doesn't have any real character - Randomator

I actually like him. At least he gave John Smith a semi-decent fight in the sequel, where he wasen’t ganged up on, and actually joined in the fight and clashed with someone himself. That’s more than say, Lyle Tiberius Rourke or Madame Medusa can say. And at least he went down fighting an actual man. These two fell to mice and a teen respectively.

Ratcliffe has a great song, that’s not enough to save him. He wants to dig for gold and get rid of the natives because he’s greedy. And that’s literally his whole character right there! I really don’t like him! He is very bland! There’s not much to him! I can’t really think of anything else to say about him! He’s just a greedy villain with nothing worth remembering about him! Other than the song. - MegaSoulhero

3 Morgana (The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea)

Wait! Ursula’s a great villain! Why is she here? Oh. This is actually her sister. Morgana! Who is pretty much an exact clone of Ursula! This is a terrible sequel and Morgana is a major reason why! If you’ve seen The Little Mermaid, Ursula dies. And she never brought up a sister in that movie but out of nowhere she all of sudden does in the sequel! This was pretty much their way of including Ursula in the sequel without including Ursula! This is lazy writing at its finest! Every thing about her screams Ursula! Except the fact that she’s thin. Even her voice is exactly the same! They actually got Pat Carroll to voice Ursula’s sister! It’s like they didn’t even try! Why couldn’t they have created an entirely new villain? The movie itself is pretty much a reverse version of the first movie. Ursula turned Ariel into a human, so Morgana turns Melody into a mermaid! And this is the first of two times in which Tara Strong becomes a mermaid! The other time is in that cliché, ...more - MegaSoulhero

4 Prince Hans (Frozen)

He literally did nothing throughout the film and he ended up saying he wanted to kill Elsa but then he swings his sword on Elsa, but it was only an attempt.

I don't know why some people find him charming! I mean he is just ugly and charmless bratt! - Sugarcubecorner

This is such a crazy villain

Watch him get voted up to number one. People only hate him because he’s from Frozen. Even though there are actually legit reasons why he sucks as a villain! His plan was to get rid of Elsa and Anna so he could be prince. This plan would not work. If Anna and Elsa died, another relative would take the throne. Like a cousin. And if he had married Anna, he still wouldn’t be able to take the throne. His plan makes no sense. I think the twist with him being a villain was very well done since it’s a way to show that you shouldn’t be too trusting of someone considering Anna was willing to marry him without getting to know him, but if had a better motivation he probably wouldn’t be so bad. - MegaSoulhero

5 Lyle Tiberius Rourke (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)

He looks almost exact as McLeach, a villian from an earlier Disney movie, except that villian actually was GOOD! This guy's plan makes no sense. - darthvadern

Atlantis: The Lost Empire is an okay movie. Not good or bad. Just okay. It has its moments but also has its flaws. An example of one of its flaws is the villain, Lyle Tiberius Rourke. Just the design of this guy makes me hate him. He was a surprise villain before Disney started putting surprise villains in almost all of their movies. Only difference is this movie actually had hints to him being evil. Just from the look of him, it was already pretty obvious. The biggest problem with him is that he’s so boring! He has gotta be the most boring Disney villain of all time! It’s been a long time since I’ve watched Atlantis. I don’t remember too much from it. But I remember how much I hated Lyle! Terrible! - MegaSoulhero

6 Edgar Balthazar (The Aristocats)

I like the aristicats

Have you ever met anyone who said Aristocats is their favorite Disney movie? Probably not. Because no one like that exists! Balthazar is a butler, and the lady he works for says she will give her fortune to her cats when she passes away. And not to Balthazar. Okay. Who gives their fortune to cats? What would they do with it? Buy a bunch of yarn? Also, Balthazar attempts to get rid of the cats so that he can get the money. As much as I hate cats, this is animal cruelty. Also, he’s incompetent. He can’t do anything right! He even gets outsmarted by cats! It’s a known fact that cats are dumb! So this is just sad! Aristocats is a horrible movie with a horrible villain! - MegaSoulhero

7 Miles Axlerod (Cars 2)

His plan is confusing and I get they were waiting until the end to reveal the villain but I think he could have been more developed characterwise. - Randomator

Basicilly every Cars villian is awesomne in my opinion. - darthvadern

If you think Axlerod is a great villain, we need to have a serious discussion. This guy is an objectively terrible villain. First of all, he isn’t revealed to be the villain until the very end when the conflict is resolved! Second of all, his plan is straight up awful! It makes zero sense! “Oh I invented Allinol and I’m gonna make Allinol look bad! I’m gonna destroy a bunch of cars that continue to use it! I’m British! ” Maybe there was more to his plan than that, but I don’t know and I don’t care. BECAUSE I HATE CARS 2! Everyone should! I’m not usually the kind of person who bashes other people’s opinions, but Cars 2 is for people who don’t know what real Pixar movies should be. This is why John Lasseter needs to be fired. I like him, but he needs to be fired for directing and writing this terrible thing! - MegaSoulhero

8 Chick Hicks (Cars)

Not really a villain character. He's only an average rival - Randomator

"I only put him on this list in hopes of angering a specific person." That's me darthvadern right? Funny how you seem to dislike me while I seem to like you. Anyway, I haven't got triggered. Though I wish Chick Hicks got more attention. - darthvadern

I am not a fan of him, however I think Jackson Storm is MUCH worse than him, Prof Z, and Miles. Storm has 0% personality.

He's not a very good villain, and comes across as more as a rival.

9 Shan-Yu (Mulan)

A good mould for a villian but he completely lacked any personality and is forgettable - Sambazing

This is the worst disney villain I've ever I hate the way the disney fans said shan yu was hedious because her eyes is creepy but I realized I am not scared of it bo shan yu your a looser on my opinion

He's evil that's it no personality whatsoever which is a shame because he could have been a really good character - Randomator

Evil but forgettable. - 445956

10 Bellwether (Zootopia)

I love Zootopia, but after watching it again I can see why people hate Bellwether. Jenny Slate is great in everything she’s in. She’s great in Star vs the Forces Evil, she was great in Lego Batman, she was even great in Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked despite that being a horrible movie. Bellwether is no exception. However, she’s not a good villain. She doesn’t really have much of a motivation for turning the animals into savage beasts. Also, I totally saw the twist of her becoming a villain a mile away. Disney does so many surprise villains that they’re becoming predictable. Moana did it slightly different, but even that was predictable. Moana was one of the most predictable movies I’ve ever seen. Zootopia only has one predictable moment, and that’s Bellwether being the villain. Zootopia is still one of my favorite Disney movies, but Bellwether sucks. - MegaSoulhero

The Contenders

11 Amos Slade (The Fox and the Hound)

Not necessarily a villain, he's just an ordinary hunter that's all.

12 Madame Medusa (The Rescuers)

The only thing she cared about was money. Why doesn't she just marry Mr. Krabs already? - Synchronocity

How was this not already on here? She was a pathetic excuse for a villain, she was just a straight up bully. - 445956

13 Mushu (Mulan II)

This is what I hate about sequels: an important character from the original becomes a villain for no reason and acts really stupid. Mushu from the first Mulan was amazing, but this version of Mushu is completely stupid. How the hell did he start from training Mulan to keeping her apart from Shang? He is exactly like the animated version of Jar-Jar and he was the one ruining Mulan II.

I don’t like that he was a villain on the sequal

He’s not a villain. - asantalo

14 Jangles the Clown (Inside Out)

But he's not even a villain! - LarkwingFlight

15 The Duke of Weselton (Frozen)

Please he's not a villain.

I hate this movie with this idiot here - asantalo

16 Bradley Uppercrust III (An Extremely Goofy Movie)

Bradley was a terrible villain, he is horribly cruel to torture Goofy, and he only cares about winning. He's only in the race for hos image, but now everyone know's he's a greedy,cheeting,compulsive, dog thing that I despise. He is the only thing I hate about this movie, which is a FANTASTIC movie by the way, let's also not forget goimg has far has to kill for 1st place, and break colledge kids necks, Bradley Uppercrust may be deliciously voiced, but man o man do I hate him.

17 Chief O’Hara (Mickey Mouse)

I can’t believe Minnie Mouse got arrested for murder of Figaro. Minnie Mouse gets arrested for driving the car, destroy Daisy’s house, attack Pluto, murder of Figaro, and mooning on people like her underwear. Chief O’Hara is a Policeman. He is a Mouseton Police Station. Minnie should be punished in jail by Chief O’Hara.

18 Jade (Trains)

But she was an Hidden Antagonist in Walt Disney Animation Studios Trains(2021).

She is a green Chevrolet car.

19 Lotso (Toy Story 3)

Why? He was a great villain! - 445956

20 Jackson Storm (Cars 3)

I haven't seen Cars 3 yet, but I already love how arrogant he is.

Probably the best of the Cars Villains. Way better than Chick Hicks or Axelrod - Randomator

21 Zurg (Toy Story 2)

He was only the minor villain, Al and Stinky Pete were the real deal. - 445956

Cool character.

22 Professor Zündapp (Cars 2)

If he was the main villain instead of Miles, then maybe Cars 2, despite it's detachment from the other two Cars movies, would be considered a good movie. - Cyri

He has a cool evil scientist character but my problem with him is that he's so minor. - Randomator

23 The Wolf (Make Mine Music/Peter and The Wolf)

As much as I love this segment, the Wolf was just a useless villain - 445956

24 Stinky Pete (Toy Story 2)

Average antagonist

25 Chef Skinner (Ratatouille)
26 Charles Muntz (Up)
27 Hopper (A Bugs Life)
28 King Candy (Wreck-it Ralph)

Started a horrible trend, and was the only one to get at least a BIT of story behind his villainy. - Cyri

29 Underminer (The Incredibles)
30 Ripslinger (Planes)
31 Cad Spinner (Planes: Fire And Rescue)
32 Johnny Worthington III (Monsters University)
33 Dean Hardscrabble (Monsters University)
34 Anton Ego (Ratatouille)
35 Mother Gothel (Tangled)

She's just a vain, selfish bitch with no redeeming qualities. She let hundreds - if not thousands - of sick people die just because she couldn't handle the thought of not staying young and pretty forever (not that she ever was pretty anyway). There's nothing entertaining or interesting about the disgusting ways in which she manipulates and abuses her kidnapping victim throughout the movie. It's just unpleasant and revolting to the point where her scenes consistently spoil my mood and ruin any chance of me enjoying the movie.

36 Steamy (Trains)


He is a CGI villain.

Just like

37 Tyson Reynolds (Boats)

Oh yeah Tyson Reynolds is such a weakest STUPIDEST VILLAIN.

Becuase he tried to sink Jib Sailboat during the RSN Boat race.

Thank god he was defeated by getting hit by a anchor.

He also a evil doer.

38 Dr Diesel (Trains)

Wait a minute he is an EVIL scientist.

Yes Dr Diesel is an EVIL scientist in Walt Disney Animation's Trains.

And he is Evan WORSE than Steamy.

And he has a monucle on his windshield.

And he is just like Professor Zunap from Pixar Animation's Cars 2.

Yeah Professor Zunap and Dr Diesel SUCK and there both DOUSHBAGS.

39 BattleShip Leader (Boats)

Worst leader of battle ships in Pixar Animations Boats(2018).
