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) 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

Nobody cares about him. He sucks. He’s not even smart like Jafar, self righteous like Frollo, funny like Hades, hatred like Scar, ruthless like Captain Hook, muscular like Gaston, crazy like Dr. Faciler, scary like the Horned King, or even powerful like Chernabog (besides, Chernabog’s my all time favorite). I give this Villain a 0/10 respect. Disney should bury him along with the film. - asantalo

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

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 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

5 Lyle Tiberius Rourke (Atlantis: The Lost Empire) 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 Prince Hans (Frozen) Prince Hans (Frozen)

This is such a crazy villain

Great, just what we need, another prince charmless who doesn't follow the tradition of other classical Disney princes nor true love at all but is only used as nothing but an excuse for two so called sisters, Anna and Elsa to make up with each other when neither Elsa nor Anna were worthy enough to be sisters at all anyway since Elsa and Anna were more like strangers to each other anyway so Elsa and Anna deserved to be far much better off without each other anyway….

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

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) 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) Shan-Yu (Mulan)

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

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

Evil but forgettable. - 445956

Shan-Yu is a very evil villain, but that’s all there is to him. The thing I love about most villains is that they have personalities. It’s what makes them memorable. It’s what makes them characters. Shan-Yu is extremely underdeveloped and he doesn’t have much of a personality! There isn’t anything memorable about him! If all I can remember about him is that he’s evil, then that’s not good. I really wanted to like this guy as a villain. He seems really cool, but he is an extremely forgettable villain. Mulan is a great film. It’s one of my favorites, but it has a very uninteresting villain. Can anyone think of one memorable line from this guy? He has a pretty brutal death, but he is such a forgettable villain. - MegaSoulhero

10 Bellwether (Zootopia) 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 Newcomers

? 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.

The Contenders

11 Amos Slade (The Fox and the Hound)
12 Jangles the Clown (Inside Out) Jangles the Clown (Inside Out)

But he's not even a villain! - LarkwingFlight

13 Lotso (Toy Story 3) Lotso (Toy Story 3)

Why? He was a great villain! - 445956

14 Jackson Storm (Cars 3) 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

15 Zurg (Toy Story 2) Zurg (Toy Story 2)

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

Cool character.

16 Professor Zündapp (Cars 2) Professor Zündapp (Cars 2)

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

17 Madame Medusa (The Rescuers) Madame Medusa (The Rescuers)

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

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

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

19 Stinky Pete (Toy Story 2) Stinky Pete (Toy Story 2)

Average antagonist

20 Chef Skinner (Ratatouille) Chef Skinner (Ratatouille)
21 Charles Muntz (Up) Charles Muntz (Up)
22 Hopper (A Bugs Life) Hopper (A Bugs Life)
23 King Candy (Wreck-it Ralph) King Candy (Wreck-it Ralph)
24 Underminer (The Incredibles)
25 Ripslinger (Planes)
26 Cad Spinner (Planes: Fire And Rescue)
27 Johnny Worthington III (Monsters University) Johnny Worthington III (Monsters University)
28 Dean Hardscrabble (Monsters University) Dean Hardscrabble (Monsters University)
29 Anton Ego (Ratatouille)
30 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.

31 The Duke of Weselton (Frozen)

I hate this movie with this idiot here - asantalo
