    Default Best Villain in any media

    In most of the books, comic books, video games, TV shows, and movies that you read/played/watched, you have been introduced to many villains. Which of these villains do you think is the best villain and why?

    Personally The Joker, he has the strongest ties to Batman and the action between them thrills me.

    I think the joker is great too but I think bane from the last batman movie is awesome.

    His mask thing looks cool and he is one of the most evil villain I have seen.

    Why must you make me choose?

    It's going to be very hard to choose which villain of which media is the best, because there are a lot of good ones out there. So, I'll start with anime. There are a lot of awesome villains in anime, but I haven't seen all of the anime in the world. But for the ones I have seen, I think the best villain thus far in anime has to be Johan Liebert from Monster.

    Oh dear God is this guy horrifying. He's handsome with the face of an angel and can be nice to people, but he's pretty much evil incarnate. You rarely see him without his signature small smile on his face (though when he does give a big grin, it's the most terrifying thing you'll ever see). He smiles when he talks people into suicide (or kills them himself), he smiles when he tells a boy to look for his mother in a red light district, he smiles as a library filled with people burns down. And the best part is: you don't see him a lot. He shows up when you least suspect it, and it hits the hardest when he does... because you know something bad's going to happen. There are many, many things Johan does, but many of them deal with huge spoilers. Just know that he's a nihilist, and go watch it. Now.

    In fact, listen to this particular piece of music from the show because it comes up on a very important part or two. This I feel associates with Johan the most... or at least the whole show in general. Oh, what the heck, this one too, as this pops up a lot in the show. (Avoid the comment section.)

    For regular cartoons, it's hard to say, there are a lot of good villains out there. So I'll go with Disney villains and say, like always, that Frollo is the best villain Disney ever made. The first time you see him, he's arresting gypsies, and chases down one of them because he thinks the baby she's carrying is something she stole (which the gypsy did in the actual book, in stealing Quasimodo, but it's not established in the movie). Then when he takes it from her on the steps of Notre Dame, he kicks her down the steps where she dies of a concussion. Then he was going to throw the baby down a well "back to Hell". All in God's holy name. In the first five minutes.

    Yeah. Never going to find another villain from Disney as despicable as him. (Though I'm secretly wishing for that.)

    That's all I can think of at the moment, but it's just going to be hard thinking of other great villains, because there are a whole lot of them out there. Of course, my favorites are those villains who are complete monsters, and they are some of the best villains around. Of course, your mileage may vary...

    Alex DeLarge from A Clockwork Orange

    I just love he absolutely loves being a bad guy. He doesn't blame a bad upbringing or talk about how he was bullied as a kid or any other cliche and poorly done backstory. He does bad things because he simply enjoys it and doesn't care what anyone has to say about it. For me, not a single villain comes even close, not even the greats like Billy and Stu, Jigsaw, Freddie, or Jason.

    Ben Linus from LOST springs to mind, because he's a character who, very much like Severus Snape, simply has his own agenda. In a show where nothing is black and white, he is the sketchiest of all to pin down. He causes many deaths, and he gassed the entire DHARMA initiative just to claim ownership over the island, but he also suffers loss and abuse, and Michael Emerson makes him so pitiable and human.

    Reason number 475983765 I adore LOST.
    I am not worried, Harry. I am with you.

    Would Zuko still count as one at this point? He's basically a hero as far as the story has gone.

    Lavos is a good choice, though.

    My personal favorite villain is Deathstroke (such a bad**** merc), but while every villain tries to dominate the world, Final Fantasy 6's villain, Kefka, actually succeeds in destroying the world.

    Is he really considered a villain though? I'm not very educated in LOTR, but isn't he only bad because he's being controlled?

    Then again, I might have it all wrong >.>

    Anyway, I really liked Light from Death Note.

    Much like how the death note corrupted Light into becoming a villain (though Light probably wasn't very stable to begin with, and the power got to his head), the ring corrupted Sméagol and he murdered his relative when he refused to give it to him. Though Sméagol was corrupted immediately while Light got in way over his head after a few successful killings, but both had pitiful--but karmic--deaths. Funny how similar the two are.

    Basically, Smeagol (his real name) was already a bad character before he was consumed n controlled by the ring. He killed his companion to get it. Unlike Bilbo Baggins who had had the ring for a while before he gave it to Frodo, he didnt really change. He didnt have to kill Gollum first for it even though he could/had a change.

    I think Ghirahim from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

    They introduce him at the beginning of the game and show the character how weak they are against his power. The first boss fight is him just playing with you! They also do a great job of making the player really grow to hate him throughout the game and in the end making the final fight against him awesome
    Epic trades for you!

    I am a hacker, lets just put it out there. Ive always wanted to make my own version of some of my child hood games. I went to a site, cool roms, (maybe youve heard of it.) and downloaded polemon fire red. When the download ended, the file was named, Beware the red.gba. Before we get deeper, my name is Kaleb. Not the, "Lets just call me generic name here.", bull ****, Kaleb IS my name. The rom worked with my basic editors, at least it would load, but i couldnt edit the world. I tried placing grass and house parts and signs, but it wouldnt save. I gave up with my editing and decided to play the game like old times. When i started, professor oak would just stand there without a text box. The ratatat came out of the pokeball, i chose my gender and name, and he still didnt say anything. The game started and my room was exactly the same as the original game. Except it was all red. I went down stairs to see if loading a new area would fix this red overcolor, but it didnt. My mom wasnt there either. I left the house to see a red over world with only one NPC. The NPC said nothing but random symbols and letters. It then said txt file. I continued to try and go to the grass so prof. Oak could tell me not to but the NPC walked up to me, paused, and then he went into prof. Oaks laboratory. My character automatically followed him so i figured this was suposed to be Oak in this messed up game. I walked up to him in his lab and he just repeated his garbage letters frase. I couldnt figure out what he was saying, it was like translating something to numbers and symbols. Then my rival walks in, and he was in a panic. "Get out, get out! They're coming! Grab a pokemon and go!" I looked at the table with all the pokemon and grabbed a charnander,( personal faveorite). Instead of my rival batteling me, he pushes me out of the building. Now everything was how it was suposed to look. Green grass, blue water, all back to normal. Except the NPC who was saying that giberish was out side and we started to battle. The text box repeated the steps on a pokemon battle, like how professer oak does on your first battle. I threw out my charmander, and he thhrew out a red, well, Red. Yes, he throws out Red, the main character. The guy that you play as. What. The. Hell. One thing though, red dosent have eyes. Black spaces for eyes. His sprite moves forward, then the game cuts to black. The game comes back, and he moves closer. Cuts to black. Moves closer. Cuts to balck. Closer. Black. Closer. Black.Closer. Black. Closer. Black, and then theres 3 of them. Black. Black. Black. A text box apears. Its the God damn jumbled text **** again, and at the end of it it says text file and repeats. I entered the text into a text file and saw the frase jpeg over and over. I trans lated the text file to a jpeg, to see red with no eyes, blankly facing me. Please, just stay away from the game. Cool roms may have already gotten rid of it. I want you to tell everyone you know to stay away from it. Spread this all over the internet for all i care, just stay away from it.
