These villains are the baddest at what they do. They have sneaked they're way into our lives as people, immersing themselves into our pop culture, and for some people, into our dreams (hint, hint) . And now, I present... The Top Ten Most Iconic Villains of All Time! (echo, echo)


At number ten, we have the weird Dr. Evil. Being inspired by Ernst Stavro Blofield from James Bond, this power hungry villain has earned his spot on the list.

At number eight, we have one of the most popular horror villains of all time. Dr. Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter first appeared as a minor but important character in Harris's novel Red Dragon. Then in the next book, he became the main character. He deserves a spot on the list of Iconic Villains, right? Come on, he ate people.

At number seven, we have Harry Potter's greatest enemy, Lord Voldemort. He has earned his spot among the great villains by going toe-to-toe with the baddest wizard of 'em all! Word of advice to Voldemort, tell your parents to give you your nose back. They took the "Gotcha Nose" thing too far.

The Green Goblin has sealed his spot on the list of Iconic Villains by mentally breaking down and beating Spider-Man at one point. You have to be at the top of your game to do that.
