Disney Villains - Round 1A
These are the characters we love to hate. They haunt our dreams, but we sure do love them. Who is the worst of the worst? The villainiest of the villains? VOTE!
1 Ursula v 16 Ratcliffe
Ursula is pure evil. Her entire motive? To take over the undersea world from King Triton, and she's willing to sacrifice Ariel to get it. She fits all the Disney Villain stereotypes - she's got a bubbling cauldron, she has evil pets, and she has an unbelievable song ("Poor Unfortunate Souls" probably got her the #1 seed in this bracket).
Governor Ratcliffe is one of the few Disney Villains that is based on a real person. Voiced by a delightfully sinister David Ogden Stiers, Ratcliffe is simply the worst. He's always got his pug Percy by his side. Since he's based on a real person, his big sin is based on reality too - he's simply a murderous racist. He's willing to exterminate the Powhatan tribe because he believes they are savages who are hiding gold.
8 Pete v 9 Bowler Hat Guy
Pete gets points in this bracket because he's the OG Disney Villain. He's Mickey Mouse's archnemesis, and he appears in every kind of Disney media - TV, movies, merchandise, theme park rides, and so on. In fact, he predates Mickey by three years! His villainy is not always his defining characteristic, though, as he occasionally shows up as a friendly character - like in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Bowler Hat Guy is a villain, but is he though? He's definitely a unique presence on this list. He's bumbling, generally inept, and really not that evil. Breaking from the tradition of the huge downfall of the villain at the end of the movie, BHG is mostly just sad and lovable.
5 Hades v 12 Madam Mim
Maybe the most powerful villain on this list, Hades is an absolute monster. Voiced to very evil effect by James Woods, Hades is a legendary menace. If we ranked these based on power alone, Hades might be a #1 seed.
Mim might not be the prettiest of the villains on this list, but she might be the most fun. She's incredibly creative, she's funny, and she's downright mean. Plus, purple hair!
4 Evil Queen v 13 Frollo
6 Oogie Boogie v 11 King Candy
One of the many Disney characters voiced by the great Alan Tudyk, King Candy looks so harmless... at first. King Candy is determined to rule Sugar Rush so badly that he corrupts code, impersonates a driver, and accidentally gets turned into a weird bug guy. Fortunately, Ralph and Vanellope save the day.
3 Gaston v 14 John Silver
Gaston is kind of a proto-Jack Reacher. He solves his problems by being physically bigger than them (roughly the size of a barge to be exact). And he's not used to hearing the word "no," especially from a bookworm like Belle. He has no superpowers (except for expectorating) but is still one of the most menacing villains on this list.
7 Prince John v 10 Lady Tremaine
Lady Tremaine is power and money hungry, and she'll do whatever it takes to rise up the social ladder. She only cares for herself and her daughters, Anastasia and Drizella. Cinderella is just a scullery maid to her. When her comeuppance comes, it's utterly gratifying. Fun fact: Lady Tremaine is voiced by American actress Eleanor Audley, who would later voice Maleficent, the evil fairy, in Sleeping Beauty (1959) and Madame Leota in The Haunted Mansion.
