We’ve come across some baddies in our time but this lot are the scariest villains on the planet!
- Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter)“One cannot live while the other survives”, is the legend surrounding Voldy and Harry. That means on of them’s gotta die!
2. Khyber’s Dog (Ben 10: Omniverse)
Khyber has an evil Omnitrix which allows him to turn his pet into different monsters which are natural predators to each alien Ben turns into. Surely that’s against the rules!
3. Bowser (Super Mario)
This blown up Koopa has been standing in Mario’s way since 1985! Luckily, Mario has been able to stop him marrying Princess Peach and taking over Mushroom Kingdom for now!
4. Davy Jones (Pirates of the Caribbean)
He’s the ugliest monster on the high seas! Jones was given the task of collecting souls from the dead before he gave up on that and turned into this ugly bloke!
5. Alberto Del Rio (WWE)
This Superstar is a right pain in the you-know-what! He says he’s better than you, richer than you, and cooler than you. What a doughnut!
6. Darth Vader (Star Wars)
The biggest, baddest, helmet-est villain of them all! Darth Vader wants to be the leader of the evil Empire so much he’ll stop at nothing! Oh, and he’s Luke Skywalker’s dad.
7. Shredder (Turtles)
Not only is he one of the deadliest martial artists in the world, he’s also the commander of the evil Foot Clan. Plus, he blames Splinter for the death of his true love!
8. Green Goblin (Spider-Man)
Norman Osborn created a super-soldier-serum and tested it on himself. Only he forgot about the side-effect that would drive him mental as the Goblin!
9. Stinky Pete (Toy Story 2)
What’s that smell? It can only be Stinky Pete! This old boy tries to stop Woody, Buzz and the other toys from being played with by Andy. What a mean old chap.
10. The Red Skull (Captain America)
Every superhero needs a villain! How about a bloke with super strength, a genius intellect and a horrible old skull face? That’ll do!
11. Sauron (Lord of the Rings)
This super-evil dude that scares the life out of everyone in the Lord of the Rings stories. He’s got the all-seeing eye and a scary bunch of Ringwraiths undertaking his vile deeds. This poor old Hobbits!
12. Loki (Thor & Avengers Assemble)
Thor’s half-brother, he’s never been happy living in the Norse demigod’s shadow! So he had to go around being evil and fighting The Avengers instead. What a wally!
13. Tai Lung (Kung Fu Panda 2)
A master of Kung Fu and he rightful Dragon Warrior! Or so he thinks. After bashing up Shi Fu, a fight with Po is the only way to determine who is the Dragon Warrior once and for all!
14. Bane (Batman)
The biggest Batman baddie is also the only man to have “broken the bat” he actually busts Bruce Wayne’s back! Ouch!
15. Lex Luthor (Superman)
Superman’s biggest opponent (and criminal genius) was hit by a “meteor” as a nine year-old which mean he can never become ill. Bad news is that the meteor was actually Supe’s spaceship and all his hair fell out. Gutted!
16. Wario (Super Mario)
The evil Wario will do anything to thwart Mario. He’ll cheat and steal to get 1UP on the good guys. He think’s he’s good-looking even though he’s got a massive pink nose. HONK!
17. Whiplash (Iron Man 2)
Iron Man was almost destroyed by this fella in the second movie. Using some go Stark’s own technology to create, first, wicked electrified whips and then an army of super-robots, he came close, but not close enough!
18. Megatron (Transformers)
This huge Decepticon is one of the coolest, yet baddest, Transformers ever! He used to turn into a massive gun, but in the films he turns into a plane, a tank and a truck! Make up your mind mate.
19. Jabba The Hut (Star Wars)
The best thing about this fat nasty slug is that anyone can speak his language – just make up a load of gibberish!
20. Scar (The Lion King)
Lions can be pretty scary anyway but Scar makes it on the list for causing the death of Mufasa and blaming it all on Simba! No wonder everyone hates him.
21. Cybermen (Doctor Who)
These freaky robot dudes were once nearly human, but kept adding more and more bits to themselves until there was no human left! Scary!
22. Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz (Phineas and Ferb)
He should be super clever as he’s a scientist but he’s really just a bit of a loon. Still, being named after tomato sauce is enough to drive anyone crazy!
23. The Master (Doctor Who)
He’s a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, just like his arch nemesis, the Doctor. But that’s where the similarity ends because the Doc is brilliant, the Master’s just a nutter!
24. Lotso (Toy Story 3)
Don’t give this guy a hug! He might look very friendly but he’s the leader of the gang at the Sunnydale Daycare Centre where he makes all the new toys suffer.
25. Dolph Ziggler (WWE)
This wrestling numpty just loved mouthing off about his Money in the Bank win at WrestleMania. He should’ve spent less time bragging and more time at the barbers!
26. Simon Cowell (X Factor)
TV’s Mr. Nasty likes nothing better than tearing into people on talent shows. Funny for the audience but terrifying for contestants.
27. Magneto (X-Men: First Class)
If you’ve seen X-Men: First Class, you’ll know that Magneto and Professor X used to be mates. Then Magneto got fed up with humans and turned evil.
28. Doc Ock (Spider-Man 2)
Another Spidey super-villain, Doctor Octavius started off as a good guy but went bad after an experiment blew up in his face. He gained four mechanical arms (fused to his spine) and a huge dose of insanity. Not a healthy combination.
29. The Joker (Batman)
He’s been terrorising Gothan City forever in a bid to live in a world without rules. Batman disagrees with that though, which is why they don’t get along so well!
30. Venom (Spider-Man)
An alien symbiotic who turned Spider-Man into a grumpy so-and-so, merges with another poor unfortunate soul and venom is born! You really are ugly mate.
31. Ra’s Al Ghul (Batman)
He taught Batman (almost) everything he knew about fighting, plotted the destruction of Gotham and had bonkers Bane as one of his followers so Ra’s easily makes the top 50.
32. Gollum (Lord of the Rings)
Once a cute creature not dissimilar to Hobbits, Smeagol was corrupted by the magic ring and became a cave-dwelling, murderous little monster called Gollum. He also hates chips and loves raw fish.
33. Captain Gutt (Ice Age 4)
The Ice Age 4 baddie captures Sid and his mates when they drift off in the ocean. Luckily, Gutt’s crew aren’t the smartest and they lost the battle of the seas!
34. Obadiah Stane (Iron Man)
Once Tony Stark’s friend and protector, Stane ended up betraying his mate and building a huge super-robot of his own. Cue a massive punch-up which Iron Man won of course.
35. Mumm-Ra (ThunderCats)
Any baddies that can’t be killed must be pretty villainous! A constant thorn in the side of the ThunderCats, Mumm-Ra is a master of deception and will stop at nothing to spread evil!
36. Sabretooth (X-Men: Wolverine)
Wolverine’s half-brother is a vicious assassin who used his mutant abilities (a rapid healing factor, razor-sharp fangs and claws, and superhuman senses) to commit dastardly crimes. Good job Wolvie always kicks his butt!
37. Emperor Palpatine (Star Wars)
Has there been a more sinister dude in the history of movies? Anyone who can boss Darth Vader about, shoot electric bolts from his fingers and terrify an entire universe must be the ultimate nasty.
38. Sid (Toy Story)
The rotten kid who lived next door to Andy makes our top villains list because he tied Buzz to a rocket and ripped other toys apart! Shame on you Sid.
39. Dr. Robotnik (Sonic the Hedgehog)
Despite being an absolute brain-box, Robotnik’s been coming up short against Sonic for over 20 years Bout time he shaves that moustache too. LOL!
40. Barbossa (Pirates of the Caribbean)
The captain of the Black Pearl plans to break the Aztec curse and kill Jack Sparrow have landed him on the list of top villains. Good luck with that buddy!
41. Daleks (Doctor Who)
The ultimate Doctor Who aliens were introduced in 1963 and have been scaring the pants off us ever since!
42. Rumpelstiltskin (Shrek Forever After)
Shrek’s dealings with this magical wee man saw our favourite ogre’s day of birth erased from history FOREVER. Fortunately there was a happy ending and this guy ended up behind bars!
43. Lord Farquaad (Shrek)
The villain of the first Shrek movie wasn’t to rid his kingdom of fairy creatures. That makes him a BIG bad guy in our eyes. Shame he’s only three foot tall. LOL!
44. The Weeping Angels (Doctor Who)
As old as the universe, The Weeping Angels, have the ability to send people into the past and then feed on the potential time energy of what would have been the rest of their victim’s lives.
45. Pigs (Angry Birds)
They’re not the most dangerous villains out there but they need to be popped if you wanna play Angry Birds, which everyone does, so we don’t like ’em. Blow ’em up!
46. Khyber (Ben 10: Omniverse)
This dude is a skilled huntsman who wears the broken-up skeletal remains of the life forms he’s tracked down. He’s also got a pet dog with some very special abilities, who we’ve seen.
47. Two-face (Batman)
Batman not only had to contend with The Joker in The Dark Knight but he was also forced to defeat THIS fella. Horribly disfigured, and with vengeance in his heart, Two-face was a one-man wrecking machine.
48. The Lizard (Spider-Man)
One of Peter Parker’s tutors tried a special serum to grown back his missing arm. It worked, but also turned him into a giant scaly green lizard. Oh well, can’t win ’em all!
49. Darth Maul (Star Wars)
The red-faced freakazoid turns up in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace with a sick double-bladed light sabre. Then Obi-Wan cuts him in half. Whoops.
50. Mystique (X-Men)
Wouldn’t it be great if we had the power to change into any person in the world, just like her? You could be your mum, your dad, your brother or your sister. Er, on second thoughts, maybe not!
