Disney Villains - Round 1A


Disney Vilains

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

Mirror, mirror on the wall, is the Evil Queen the most iconic villain here? She might be. She has that most basic of evil motives... vanity. She wants to be the fairest of them all, and that darn Snow White is in the way.

While some of the characters on this bracket have some redeeming qualities (heck, some are even charming), Frollo is so, so, so evil. He's a murderous man who wants to exterminate the Romans in Paris. And he claims to do it all in the name of God. He's a bad, bad man.

6 Oogie Boogie v 11 King Candy

Far from the charming and attractive villains on this list, Oogie Boogie is literally a big burlap sack filled with bugs. He's terrifying. He kidnaps Santa and tortures him and Sally, until Jack saves the day. Oogie Boogie is... a nightmare.

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.

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel "Treasure Island," Treasure Planet has all of the swashbuckling action of the original, but this time, it's set in space. And the mutinous pirate John Silver is just as menacing here as he is in the book.

7 Prince John v 10 Lady Tremaine

Let's face it... Prince John is a buffoon. There's nothing scary about him. He's a weak, timid, useless guy. But, he's got the money and the power. And sometimes (heck, usually) that's enough. Fortunately for us, it's not enough to take down Robin Hood and his merry men.

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.

2 Cruella de Vil v 15 Clayton

Her name is so appropriate, isn't it? How cruel do you have to be to want to kidnap all those puppies so you can use their fur for a coat? She's utterly terrifying, from her signature cigarette holder to her enormous Panther De Ville car.

William Cecil Clayton is the terrifying and treacherous hunter that battles Tarzan in the 1999 film. He plans to capture wild gorillas and sell them for profit, but fortunately, our hero battles Clayton across the tree tops and ultimately defeats him.
