Ah Disney, you really do have the ability to create the best villains in movies. Whether it's an evil, pink, strawberry-scented bear, or a larger-than-life sea witch they're enough to have you shaking in your boots.
Today I came across a rather detailed and awesome villainous Venn diagram made by Deviant artist CaptainLevisQuad (aka Steven). After being inspired by an article which points out how frequently Disney villains fall to their death, Steven created a diagram which illustrates the fates and downfalls of all Disney and Disney Pixar villains in handy pictorial form. He has created four categories which include:
- Defeated, but alive
- Falls to implied death
- Protagonist escapes from/is not punished
- Various means of death
He has tried to make the Venn diagram match up with the villains fates in the film as best as possible, though encourages people to submit any good arguments for changes that might be needed (if you spot one, you can contact him over HERE).
Check out the amazing Venn diagram for yourself:
