Dark Hellsing

OK guys. I'm sorry to annoy but this is the last time I'll be doing this. This time I'm doing a top 30 movie villains list. One per series. No females just way too many. One TV show villain (he deserves to be on the list). This time I have comedy villains. In case your'e wondering 30 - 21 are in no particular order. Top 20 is in a particular order. Just letting people know. Also this my opinion so try not to get angry. If you disagree please be respectful.

Important Note: My sentences are not consistent. Some are long and some are short. So keep that in mind. Some I have a lot to say and some I don't and I don't wanna say the same thing everything else does.

Honorable Mentions:

Dr. Johnathan Crane/The Scarecrow - Batman Begins (2005).

Played By: Cillian Murphy.

The Joker - The Dark Knight (2008).

Played By : Heath Ledger.

Darth Sidious - Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith (2005).

Played By : Ian McDiarmid.

Sauron - Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (2001).

Played By: Sala Baker.

Dick Jones - Robocop (1987).

Played By: Ronny Cox.

Simon Gruber - Die Hard: With A Vengeance (1995).

Played By: Jeremy Irons.

Mr. Blonde - Reservoir Dogs (1993).

The List.

#30 Shooter McGavin - Happy Gilmore (1996).

Played By: Christopher McGavin.

Reason: This guy is total dickhead. He's a cocky arrogant prick who thinks he's smarter and better than anyone else. He's very good at cheating, lying, and manipulating. He uses to these tatics to win the game by any means necessary. He's giant bastard but incredibly hilarious at the same time. You just gotta love him for that.

#29 Dr. Evil - Austin Powers (1997).

Played By: Mike Myers.

Reason: This guy just cracks me up. Not much else I can say that's been said.

#28 Magneto - X-Men (2000).

Played By: Ian McKellen.

Note: I liked the second film, but I think it's overrated and in my opinion it isn't as good as the first film. Third is one is just plain shit.

Reason: Ian McKellen rocks in this role. What truly makes him scary that he truly believes he's doing the right thing. Even though he's not. He will whatever it takes to wipe out the human race. I mean that's us people.

#27 The Joker - Tim Burton's Batman (1989).

Played By: Jack Nicholson.

Reason: Nicholson was freakin awesome as the Joker. He's funny, creepy and scary at the same time. Plus you gotta love that dance music by Danny Elfman. Is he my favorite joker? No, that would be Mark Hamill. But just everything about Nicolson was awesome. I do love Heath Ledger as The Joker, which is why I put as honorable mention. I'll end it here.

#26 Lord Farquaad - Shrek (2001).

Voiced By: John Lighthow.

Reason: Like Shooter McGavin, he's hilarious and a complete asshole at the same time. He believes he is superior than everyone else and thinks he's special. However he does have a dark side to him. He like to torture his victims and wants to wipe out fairy tale creatures. Either way he's just an awesome villain and the best villain from the Shrek franchise.

#25 Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin - Spider-Man (2002).

Played By: Willem Dafoe.

Note: The Only Spider-Man movie and villain hollywood didn't fuck up. He's the only Spider-Man villain that is pure evil, less of sympathetic and has no redeeming qualities.

Reason: Willem Dafoe stole the show in the first Spider-Man film. He was SOO good in this role and just all around perfect casting. He's lying manipulative asshole father to Harry and treats him like crap, tortures an innocent old lady (Aunt May), is a corrupt business man who only cares about money and his job. What a dick. He even attempts to kill innocent children on monorail. Talk about evil. Sad but true we have villains like this in real life.

#24 Lex Luthor - Superman The Animated Series (1996 - 2000).

Voiced By: Clancy Brown.

Reason: I know he's not a movie villain but he just had to make the list. Gene Hackman and Kevin Spacey were just too campy for me. While I liked Michael Rosenbaum on Smallville but he really doesn't intimidate me. In my opinion Clancy Brown is the best Lex Luthor ever. The first time I was intimidated by Luthor. He's pretty much the DC version of Norman Osborn (even though I'm more of a DC guy anyways) so I don't really need to go into detail. Let's just say he's lying manipulative mentor to Mercy who could care less about her. Unfortunately like Norman Osborn we have people like this in real life.

#23 Bill The Butcher - Gangs Of The New York (2002).

Played By: Daniel Day Lewis.

Reason: First of all Daniel Day Lewis rocks. This guy is evil and fun at the same. Plus he this person was real nuff said there.

#22 Principal Richard "Dick" Vernon - The Breakfast Club (1985).

Played By: Paul Gleason.

Reason: This guy is a total asshole. But he's so damn funny. Even though what ever he says sounds mean, but it's so funny, just his delivery alone is perfect. Not as crazy as Principal Rooney but we still love him for how insane he is.

#21 Principal Edward Rooney - Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986).

Played By: Jeffrey Jones.

Reason: This guy owns every scene he's in. This guy just makes he laugh no matter which scenes. All he wants to do is bust Ferris Bueller once and for all. But unfortunately it doesn't work out. This guy is insane, hilarious and we love him just for that. Be careful ditching school on Rooney's back kids. Jeffrey Jones at his best.

#20 Saruman - Lord Of The Rings: Two Towers (2002).

Played By: Christopher Lee.

Reason: Well first of all, you knew he had to be on here because it's Christopher freakin' Lee. He really steals the show in all three movies and he's a great villain. One of Lee's best villain roles ever. His voice and terrifying presence makes him a great baddie.

#19 Scar - The Lion King (1994).

Voiced By: Jeremy Irons.

Reason: The sinister evil lion sociopath Scar himself. He's also voiced by British actor Jeremy Irons who is legend. He's willing to kill his own brother in order to become king. Talk about twisted. Even though he doesn't intimidate me, I still gotta love him for how evil he is.

#18 Sid Phillips - Toy Story (1996).

Voiced By: Erik Von Detten.

Note: Might wanna protect your toys kids. They might be tortured or killed.

Reason: Pixar's first villain and the first villain that I actually feel intimated by. Why? Because he's a pyschopath/sociopath who commits genocide against toys. He like to kill his victims by torturing them. A good example would be blowing them up or just torturing them until they're dead. Now that's scary. Thank god he's not my neighbor and thank god I'm not a toy.

#17 Judge Claude Frollo - Disney's The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (1996).

Voiced By: Tony Jay.

Best Disney villain song ever. Yes I like it better than Be Prepared.

Note: Watch out ladies. He likes to hit on younger women. That person could be you lol.

Reason: The second and the first "official Disney" that I'm intimidated by. Like Sid from Toy Story he commits genocide and kills his victims by torturing them. This time they're actually humans and they're gypsies. He kills Quisimodo's mother and fabricates to the poor hunchback by claiming everyone will reject him for his looks. He's also a lying manipulative sociopath as well. He's an evil religious judge who longs to purge the world of Vice And Sin. He even sexually harasses Esmerelda and lusts for her. He tries to make her an offer she can't refuse. Either be with him or burn in hell. Now that's frightening.

#16 Warden Norton - The Shawshank Redemption (1994).

Played By: Bob Gunton.

Reason: Well this guy is one lying manipulative son of bitch. He pretends to be nice to Andy and tortures him and his friends to make his life a living hell. Need I say more?

#15 Amon Goeth - Schindler's List (1993).

Played By: Ralph Fienes.

Reason: Well this guy is lying manipulative son of bitch. He pretends to be nice to Andy and tortures him and his friends to make his life a living hell. Need I say more?

#14 William Tavington - The Patriot (2001).

Played By: Jason Isaacs.

Reason: First of all this my favorite Jason Isaacs performance. He's such a dick and a sinister creature. He burns down houses filled with innocents inside. He will do by any means necessary to win the war by all cost. I don't know about you but this seems like on ominous character. I think I'll end it here.

#13 Castor Troy - Face/Off (1997).

Played By: John Travolta.

Reason: I did like Nicolas Cage, but he never really scared me. Travolta as Troy actually intimated me. But he does have a lot of fun. Kind of reminds me of The Joker a little bit. He's funny and creepy at the same time and like almost every villain should be.

#12 Norman Stansfield - The Professional (1994).

Played By: Gary Oldman.

Reason: My favorite performance by Gary Oldman. "Trust me everyone love Gary Oldman". "What do you mean everyone?" "EVERYONE"!!!!! LOL. He's creepy and twisted as hell. I'll leave it at that.

#11 Pinhead - Hellraiser (1987).

Played By: Doug Bradley.

Reason: This guy is brutal. He's will kill and torture anyone who gets in his way. This guy tragic but ruthless at the same time. Be careful he might tear your soul apart.

#10 Hannibal Lecter - Silence Of The Lambs (1991).

Played By: Anthony Hopkins.

Reason: I shouldn't have to explain. I know he's been done a lot, but I had to put him on the list. He likes to liver with farber beans and candy.

#9 Freddy Krueger - A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984).

Played By: Robert Englund.

Reason: I mean come on. This guy haunts people's dreams. Plus he's played by the amazing Robert Englund. I mean he's all deformed and he has a claw to stab people with claws. Talk about terrifying.

#8 Pennywise The Clown - It (1990).

Played By: Tim Curry.

Reason: Do I really need to explain? This what made people scared of clowns. Be careful of clowns kids.

#7 The T-1000 - Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1992).

Played By: Robert Patrick.

Reason: This guy was way better than villain than Arnold. No offense to all Arnie fans. He's creepy, slick, suave and dangerous. I mean he will do whatever takes to kill John Connor and just doesn't give up. Plus he's very hard to defeat. I would be careful if I were you.

#6 Clarence Boddicker - Robocop (1987).

Played By: Kurthwood Smith.

Reason: This guy is also the father of Eric Forman on That 70s Show FYI. Here he plays a drug lord cop killer. This guy just doesn't get along with law does he? I mean he tortures Alex Murphy by shooting to death and is responsible for turning poor Murphy into a machine. Also you wanna party with him and also want Robocop to take his ass down.

#5 Hans Gruber - Die Hard (1988).

Played By: Alan Rickman.

Reason: You gotta love this guy. In my opinion Alan Rickman's best role. Every time I think of Alan Rickman, I always think of Hans Gruber. It's that good of a performance. He's cold, smart, good at lying, manipulative and sociopathic. I mean he's almost like Osma Bin Laden in movies. You gotta love his voice. Also the best villain in the franchise.

#4 Agent Smith - The Matrix (1999).

Played By: Hugo Weaving.

Note: 2&3 Don't exist.

Reason: Well this guy is just a bad ass. He's evil, creepy, smart and highly intelligent and ruthless. He can totally kick your ass with martial arts skills. Plus he can also find your personal business, he will search for you, find you until you're dead. I mean this guy will hunt you down.

#3 Khan Noonien Singh - Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan (1982).

Played By: Ricardo Montalban.

Reason: KHAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Khan is cold ruthless, cunning and has so much charisma. I'll be damned that Khan is one of the coolest villains out there. He will never give up his plan until it succeeds. He just never surrenders does he? The ultimate Star Trek villain of all time.

#2 Darth Vader - Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi (1983).

Played By: Sebastian Shaw (Body)/James Earl Jones (Voice).

Voiced By: James Earl Jones.

Note: Screw Anakin Skywalker. I'm talking about Darth Vader.

Reason: I know Palpatine/Sidious is supposed to the ultimate villain of Star Wars but I consider him more of a background villain. But how ever Lord Vader here is a little more memorable. The breathing noise, the costume, red lightsaber, Vader just screams evil. He even has a base that's called the death star. Darth Vader in my book is the Dark Lord Of The Sith.

#1 John Doe - Se7en (1996).

Played By: Kevin Spacey.

Note: Be careful. Your head or your wife/husband's head might end up in a box.

Reason: This one baddie that scares the living crap out of me. He's sick, twisted and he tortures and kills his victims in many vicious ways. He will do what ever is necessary to correspond the seven deadly sins. He's smart, cold, creepy and scary and someone who I wouldn't wanna run in a dark alley with. He's also very calm and ruthless. What's even scarier is that he really believes he's doing the right thing. Even though he dies, he actually wins and succeeds at his master plan. If you see the movie you know what i'm talking about.

What are your top 30 favorite movie villains. What are some bad guys that you wouldn't wanna run into comment section below let me know. I'll catch you guys later.
