Picture 1 of 100

Before Mario became the hero we all loved, he was a villain.In fact in this game Mario continues to hold Donkey Kong prisoner after defeating him in the previous game. Donkey Kong Jr., attempts to save his father while Mario acts like a weirdo, trying to stop Donkey KongJr.

We all love the villains in the games we play, even though we actually hate them. It is kind of a love and hate relationship. So what makes a great villain? Is it the laughs they bring, the deeds that they do, the people they kill, the fight they possess, the sheer undeniable charisma they carry – or something else?

Regardless, without a villain there can be no hero. That’s just how it goes. Here is our top 100 list of the best villains in gaming.

    I love how kefka was so low on the list. I mean, he was lower than ultros… Really?
    And where the hell was shodan and Ganondorf?

  • Ben the Nerd

    Nr. 01 should be the prime King of Evil, Demise the Demon King! Too bad there’s too few fans of him. He deserves no other rank than nr. 01 for all time!

  • Ebu

    Okay, I’m disappointed in this. I know it’s an opinion but Ganondorf deserves to be in every Top Villain list. I was expecting to see him in top 3…

  • McFreaky

    Did… Did they just call King Pig a better villain than Virgil? And why just Ansem!? It should be Xehanort as a whole!

  • Michel Guendler Gruenberg

    WHERE THE HELL IS LICH KING?????

    I really just clicked 100 times to find that Ganondorf was NOT on the list?! What is this?! And Dark Link should have been higher.

  • TheX

    wait what? “76-Officer Tenpenny- GTA 4″ i tought tenpenny died in san andreas :))

  • Asthar

    Where is Ganondorf on this list!? 100 clicks and still he does not appear.
    What a waste of my time.

  • Carles.

    Kefka at 59. You really have no idea what you’re doing.
