Worst Disney Villains

By worst, I mean most pathetic or forgettable, not most evil.

The Top Ten

1 Lyle Tiberius Rourke (Atlantis: The Lost Empire) Lyle Tiberius Rourke (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)

The greatest evidence of why Rourke is the most forgettable Disney Villain at the time of this writing? The fact that he is not even mentioned at all on the top 10 list of the worst Disney Villains.

But seriously, Rourke is the most poorly written Disney Villain. His motive is insultingly bad for a villain who is supposed to be for a more mature audience: he wants to be rich. Which he would be if he didn't try to destroy Atlantis. Rourke was supposed to be "smart" according to the movie.

What makes this particularly bad, since villains like Ratcliffe, Mcleach, Sykes, Prince John, Edgar, villains both good and weak, also have greed as their motive, but they, unlike Rourke, have no other option; they will not gain any money if they don't do evil. Rourke did not have to kill atlanteans, or cause any conflict; he could've been rich anyway. Nobody during the WW1 era is willing to pay 3 times the profit Rourke is desiring. Rourke is insufferably snide, he is extremely dumb for ...more

Worse than Scroop

He is not good

At first when I saw him I though he was a McLeach rip-off. - darthvadern

2 Edgar The Butler (The Aristocats) Edgar The Butler (The Aristocats)

He literally gets outsmarted by farm animals and pets. Talk about pathetic.

Edgar was inhuman on new levels. After inciting the French Revolution and getting his employer killed in the guillotine, he conspires with Adolph Hitler to use nova gas on the children of France. Luckily O'malley, the undercover CIA agent, is there to stop this pedophile. - Jackamalio

This guy takes pathetic to a new level. - lavashooter

Oh man this guy was a punk ass bitch. - Mcgillacuddy

3 Alameda Slim (Home On The Range) Alameda Slim (Home On The Range)

Just the most terrible villain ever. He sucks so bad, he deserves to be number 1. - asantalo

A guy who yodels to steal cattle. How is this guy threatening? - lavashooter

Worst film and worst villain Disney has ever created

4 Sarousch (The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2)

Terrible movie, forgettable villain (except for his corset, that was pretty funny lol).

Circus guy who wants to steal a bell. - lavashooter

Made even more pathetic by the fact that his predecessor is the dark and interesting Judge Frollo. - Treacle

Circus dude/freak that wants to steal a bell. Pretty stupid - MangoFruitJuice

He's annoying.

5 Mushu (Mulan 2) Mushu (Mulan 2)

What yall talking about this boy is powerful Disney villain and yall stupid dummies if can deny look at him he is basically the son of a dragon

(This is a joke).

He is stupid.

He is not even a villan


6 Kazar (The Wild)

I don't even remember this movie, because why would Disney betray the world?! If only Walt Disney were still alive.

7 Governor Radcliffe (Pocahontas) Governor Radcliffe (Pocahontas)

He's stupid.

8 Abis Mal (The Return of Jafar)

Pathetic and annoying

9 Medusa (The Rescuers)

She's only forgettable because this movie is pretty irrelevant too most people. Too me, I thought she was pretty funny. Although this is my opinion. - nintendofan126

10 Goob/Bowler Hat Guy (Meet The Robinsons)

He's the secondary. The hat is the main villain. - WorldPuncher47592834

Guy who is mad because he lost a little league game and was too lazy to actually do anything with his life so he blames it on someone else...

The Newcomers

? Mr Scroop (Treasure Planet)

I love Scroop!

He is probably the Most Forgettable Disney Villian I Have Ever seen I mean at least I remembered how loud a stupid Alamedo Slim was from Home On the Range. But this spider/lobster is so forgettable that despite seeing him three times I still don’t remember him.

The Contenders

11 The Bear (Brave)

His name is Mor’du.

He never said anything but I found him awesome. - HeavyDonkeyKong

12 Foxy Loxy (Chicken Little) Foxy Loxy (Chicken Little)

I don't think she's that evil.

13 Hans (Frozen) Hans (Frozen)

He's just Scar but if Scar is stupid, doesn't know how monarchies work, Be Prepared doesn't exist, revealed way late in the story, and doesn't impact it in anyway. (Really, they could remove Hans and just make the Duke of Weselton the villain, or better yet, Elsa).

He's a manipulator (someone who makes another person fall in love with him or her and later betrays them and puts all his or her effors into killing him! )
He was defeated easily! Some people picked him up from sea and arrested him! - WorldPuncher47592834

He ripped off the previous worst Disney villain ever: Gaston. - Anonymousxcxc

He became a villian straight out of nowhere! He literally had no reason to in the first place and was only made a villian just do Disney could have a villian in there movie. He's lame excuse for a villian and deserves to be higher.

14 Kron (Dinosaur) Kron (Dinosaur)
15 The Horned King (The Black Cauldron) The Horned King (The Black Cauldron)

I'm sorry what?! This guy Is awesome!

16 Amos Slade (The Fox and The Hound) Amos Slade (The Fox and The Hound)
17 Rico (Home On The Range)
18 Shan Yu (Mulan) Shan Yu (Mulan) Shan Yu is the main antagonist of Disney's 1998 animated feature film, Mulan. He is the evil leader of the Hun Army.

He’s Forgettable.

19 Gaston (Beauty and the Beast) Gaston (Beauty and the Beast) Gaston is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast.

What! are you trying to make a dupe out of me!

Only 17? Seriously? This guy is just a stright up jerk! - 445956

This is a list of the villains with the worst *writing*, not the most evil villains. - Treacle

I really don,t like this evil man of how he tried to force Belle to marry him ewww! He is very bad

He's the villain. You're not supposed to agree with his actions. (However, you could say he's so unlikable that you don't even enjoy rooting against him.) - Treacle

Gaston is one of the best written Villains Disney has ever made. Get him off the list.
Imagine a story where the Beast was the hero and the Town Hero was the Villain... - AnimeSportsFan619

20 Scar (The Lion King) Scar (The Lion King) Scar is the main antagonist of Disney's 1994 animated feature film, The Lion King. He was the second son of Ahadi and Uru — who were, at one time, King and Queen of the Pride Lands — the younger brother of Mufasa, and the uncle of Simba.

Wait, Scar? How is Scar a bad villain? I know some are upset over how he killed Mufasa, but the movie was trying to portray that he was, in fact, a villain! I understand that some think he is overrated, but I do not believe that he is the worst...

Worse Villain ever!

He Kill Mufasa

Too overrated. Chernabog is a better Villain than he is. - asantalo

21 Morgana (The Little Mermaid 2)
22 Marina Del Rey (The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning)
23 Bellwether (Zootopia) Bellwether (Zootopia)

She and Hans are unfitting as villains. Hans was made evil at the last minute of production and I feel that the lion mayor could had worked as a better villain(probably a modernized prince john who wants to enslave the herbivores or something like that. and he was already abusive.) They need to stop with the twist villains formula and give it a break. Also the villain(s) from Frozen should had been Elsa like it was intended or the trolls.

This twist villian was kind of a let down for such a good movie...

How is she a villain? She doesn't look too threatening!

24 Chef Skinner (Ratatouille)

Anton Ego seems more like the villain. When I hadn't seen this movie in a few years, I completely forgot about Skinner.


He's annoying because he has an overused Napoleon complex; a douchebag because he is a hothead for the sake of being a hothead and wanted to kill Remy only to try to use him to make microwavable foods.

Chef Skinner is hilarious! 😂

25 Mother Gothel (Tangled) Mother Gothel (Tangled) Mother Gothel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 50th animated feature film Tangled.

She was evil just for the sake of being evil. Her death was one big cop-out by Disney,too.

26 Prince John (Robin Hood) Prince John (Robin Hood)

Yep. He doesn't sound very threatening. He's more like a baby rather than a villain. He sucks this thumb and cries for his mother. Annoying - MangoFruitJuice

He is more of a baby than a villain. He sucks his thumb and cries for his mommy constantly.

27 Yokai (Big Hero 6)
28 Claude Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) Claude Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)

I say he's the greatest villain! At least he's not a cliche or a stereotype. Y'all take him off da list!


29 Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland) Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland) The Queen of Hearts is a character from the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by the writer and mathematician Lewis Carroll.
30 Prudence (Cinderella II: Dreams Come True/Cinderella III: A Twist in Time)
31 Jafar (Aladdin) Jafar (Aladdin)

One of the most powerful! - WorldPuncher47592834

32 Big Bad Wolf (Three Little Pigs)
33 Ordinary Guy (Darkwing Duck)

Two words about him: really lame. I mean, what kind of bad guy name is that?

34 Captain Hook (Peter Pan) Captain Hook (Peter Pan) Captain James Hook is a fictional character, the antagonist of J. M. Barrie's play Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up and its various adaptations, in which he is Peter Pan's archenemy.

Just too overly nice.

35 Gideon Gleeful (Gravity Falls)
36 DOR-15 (Meet the Robinsons)

The Bowler Hat Guy is the secondary. He ruined the future. - WorldPuncher47592834

37 Cruella de Vil (101 Dalmations) Cruella de Vil (101 Dalmations) Cruella de Vil is a fictional character who appeared in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians, Disney's animated film adaptations 101 Dalmatians and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure, and Disney's live-action film adaptations 101 Dalmatians and 102 Dalmatians as the main ...read more.

To whomever added this: How is Cruella pathetic or forgettable? - lavashooter

I'm not the one who added this, but I guess "she wants a dog-skin fur coat" could be considered a pathetic motive. - Treacle

38 Les Camembert and Dr. Fusion (Teen Beach Movie)
39 Chernabog (Fantasia) Chernabog (Fantasia) Chernabog is a Disney villain from the 1940s film Fantasia, and in his segment, "A Night on Bald Mountain".

WHAT! He's my favorite!

Anyone who hates Chernabog is a terrible fan of the Disney Villains Franchise. Chernabog is the best, he's the darkest, biggest, most powerful, and the most evil being Disney has ever created. I will fight anyone who disagrees. Because Chernabog is the true villain. Scar is nothing. - asantalo

Take him off! HE’S THE BEST! - asantalo

40 The Evil Queen (Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs) The Evil Queen (Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs)

She’s the first! WHY IS SHE HERE? - asantalo

"First" doesn't mean "good". Her motive of "wah, Snow White is prettier than me! She must die! " is pretty whiny and pathetic. - Treacle

41 Cad Spinner (Planes: Fire And Rescue)

He's just so selfish

42 Ursula (Little Mermaid) Ursula (Little Mermaid) Ursula is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated feature film The Little Mermaid.

Just...SO MEAN.

She's supposed to be mean because she's the villain. (But you could argue that she's so utterly unlikable that you don't even enjoy rooting against her.) - Treacle

She’s awesome. But her sister is dumb. - asantalo

43 Nuka (Lion King 2) Nuka (Lion King 2)

What a Jerk.

44 Sid Phillips (Toy Story) Sid Phillips (Toy Story)

He is not really a villain but Just a whiny little brat trapped inside a boy.
