    Favorite villains

    The "heroes" get all the love, everyone always roots for them at the end of all of our shows the hero all ways pulls something off and the credits roll. No one gives anything to the villain, those ambitious, ever scheming, always working, always improving villans. So this thread goes out to the bad guys, the criminals, the wrong doers. The thread dosent have to be full a villain of huge magnitude villains it can be anyone so state your favorites from General Zod, to Lord Zedd, from Mumraa to Mal'Ganis, Hannibal to Harley Quinn, this is where you get a shout out.

    Ill start with 2 of my paricular favorites. It would have to be Vandal Savage the immortal intellectual. And Klarion The Witch Boy.

    Fairly close to my list, just missed:
    Baron Vladimir Harkonnen
    Moriarty from Sherlock (BBC)
    Cthulhu
    Ernst Stavro Blofeld
    Hannibal Lecter
    Roy Batty
    Count Dracula (book version, and Bela Lugosi, Max Schreck (technically Count Orlok), Christopher Lee, Gary Oldman, Gerard Butler(he did the role justice even if the film sucked))
    both versions of Khan Noonien Singh
    Xenomorph
    Agent Smith
    Davros and his creations

    Since I added Max Schreck in Nosferatu, I think Willem Dafoe's portrayal of that character was brilliant, however the villian of that movie and one of the greatest actors ever John Malkovich as the Director Frederich Wilhelm Murnau is a classic, really he is the greatest villain because you are rooting for him, even if he is insane.

    I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every moment of it.
    Sane people are boring. Or else I've been around insane people so long that I can't tell the difference anymore. Either way, chase away those silly notions of linear thought: they have never done anyone good.

    It depends on if you mean likeable or just really good at being villains.

    I was always rooting for the smoking man in X-Files.. He always seemed to be using ice cold logic to do what was in the best interest of humanity as a whole. Though I never saw the last 3 seasons, so I don't know if he turned super evil or anything.

    Ridley is a great villain in the Metroid games themselves, but after reading the manga this guy is easily one of the most sadistic bastards ever. As if I didn't like him enough in the games already, I just came to love this guy as a villain ten times more after reading it. I mean, holy hell, not only does he manipulate Samus big time, defeating her with mere emotions (and not in the same crappy way that Other M did it), but he also makes for some really grotesque imagery in it. And this guy is owned by Nintendo! He makes Ganondorf look like the easter bunny in comparison.

    Why do you have to ruin a thread about villains with MLP BS...

    OT: I dunno, Wesker from Resident Evil springs to mind. But only for one reason...CHRRRIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

    For the rest I can't remember thinking of any "hero" or "villain" then I like more...I can only think of crappy "heros" or "villains". :P

    I've been liking garrosh as of lately. Conquest, and domination can't go wrong. A little misguided but overall I dig it. Rip my watchief

    He's a villain, the thread is about villains.



    I'm a big fan of likeable villains who you almost don't want to see beaten. Depending on the interpretation, Joker has a lot of this too. Doctor Horrible might count, even though he's considered the protagonist.
