Disney Villains - Round 1B


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 Maleficient v 16 Madame Medusa

This faerie queene cursed a baby because she wasn't invited to a party and eventually turned into a dragon to kill said (teenaged) baby's boyfriend. Truly she is the Mistress of all Evil.

This ruthless villainess is so obsessed with diamonds that she kidnapped a small child to fetch a particularly valuable one for her. "Fun" fact: her appearance was based on the animator's soon-to-be-ex-wife, who also happened to be the niece of Walt Disney's wife.

8 Shere Khan v 9 Yzma

This fierce tiger has vowed to kill any human that steps foot in the jungle, including animal-raised Mowgli.

Yet another example of the long-scheming advisor archetype, Yzma nearly succeeds at killing Kuzco and ruling the land. Perhaps her biggest downfall was her devotion to overly convoluted plans and potions. "Why do we even have that lever?"

5 Queen of Hearts v 12 Hans

The Queen of Hearts is the epitome of the danger of putting power in the wrong hands. Off with her head!

This master manipulator managed to win the heart of Princess Anna, turning the kingdom's chaos to his own advantage. Fortunately an act of true love stopped him in the end.

4 Scar v 13 Ratigan

If this list were up to Millennials, Scar would be number 1 on it for killing Mufasa and forever "scar"ring them.

Ratigan is the rodent version of Professor Moriarty and the would-be ruler of the mousedom of England. But don't call him a rat!

6 Dr. Facilier v 11 Mother Gothel

The "Shadow Man" is out to rule New Orleans with the help of his "friends from the other side." And he would have gotten away with it too, if not for those meddling kids!

Mother Gothel is a near perfect depiction of the dangers of narcissistic personality disorder, perhaps most tellingly in how Rapunzel reaches for her in her ultimate death by defenestration.

3 Captain Hook v 14 Edgar

Before Captain Jack Sparrow, there was Captain Hook. Would he get vengeance on Peter Pan for the loss of his hand? The clock is ticking... in the stomach of the Crocodile.

Okay, so, here's the thing. Yes, Edgar tried to rid himself of the cats, but on the other hand, they were named as the heirs to his mistress's fortune. He should have been patient, sure, since he would have been in charge of the fortune anyway--but on the other hand, maybe Madame Adelaide should have named him the heir contingent on the care of her cats, rather than leaving the fortune to animals. #JusticeForEdgar!

7 Chernabog v 10 Shan Yu

Considered Disney's best representation of pure evil, Chernabog is intended to be the illustration of Satan himself.

Inspired by both Ghengis Khan and Atilla the Hun, Shan Yu was a nearly unkillable force, surviving the avalanche that decimated his army. He nearly killed the emperor but was saved in the end by Mulan.

2 Jafar v 15 Horned King

Jafar may have been Sultan of Agrabah only briefly, but he was certainly the sultan of the long game, working for years to slowly manipulate the ruler. Eventually he attained Ultimate Cosmic Power... but was also trapped in the accompanying itty bitty living space.

The Horned King is another example of evil personified. His goal: raise an undead army using the Black Cauldron. There is no charm or elegance here, he's just scary.
