Post your top ten villains!?!?
As I said top 10 villains from any media, no justification just the name and what they're from in no particular order.
Debates and justifications are cool, but after the lists not within the same post.
Here's mine, given this type of thing is mercurial but this is a pretty strong list.
1.) Apocalypse - The X men comic books
2.) Magua- The Last of the Mohicans
3.) Bill the Butcher- Gangs of New York
4.)Al Swearengen- Deadwood
5.)Baba Yaga- Hellboy comics
6.)Maleficent- Disney's Sleeping Beauty
7.)Dark Sied- DC cosmic comics
8.)The Chandrian- The Kingkiller Chronicle " Name of the Wlnd"
9.)Fenris the feared- The First Law Trilogy
10.) Stringer Bell- The Wire
1 Xanatos. (Gargoyles)
2 Kefka. (Final Fantasy 6)
3 Magneto. (X-men comics)
4 Mir. (Ar Tonelico)
5 6 and 7: Megabyte. Daemon. Hexidecimal. (ReBoot- yes, it had three of the best villains ever written- you should totally go watch it)
8 Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs)
9 Doctor Jekyll (Not Hyde, Jekyll... if you don't get why, you haven't read the original)
10 Karellen. (Childhood's End)
Ooooh pulling out the big guns gargoyles and reboot on the same list.
I love reboot it was light years ahead of it's time. And gargoyles who doesn't love gargoyles?
Xanatos is great, as is Megabyte, but Daemon and Hexadecimal, personally not so much for me.
And nice nod to childhood's end sir.
Hey, I was told "top 10". That means the biggest guns.
Hex was an amazingly complex character. Bat---- ----ing insane. But with some serious depth. Especially when they go into backstories and explore the "birth" of the siblings.
And Daemon? Easily the most badass villain in the history of villains. She was clever. She was ruthless. She was a True Believer. The french accent was annoying... but meh... one flaw out of how many traits? I can forgive that.
Of the three, Megabyte was actually the *least* interesting of the bunch. Another megalomaniac cheerfully committing evil for little more than self-aggrandizement. If he wasn't so damn GOOD at it, he wouldn't have made my list.
And Childhood's End was
possibly the first of "manipulative supposedly benevolent aliens with their own agendas helping earth into the star fairing age". And of all the ones I've found in the genre, the best.
With megabyte it's the childhood attachment factor, and with daemon it's because I barely remember her and need to rewatch the show.
I while aware of the classics have never read most of them. I've listened to essays and opinions and a few short stories but cracking the cover, not so much.
The exellent podcast starship sofa reintroduced me to the classics. But there's just so much to read and I already need to read all this contemporary fiction gaaaaaaah.
1- The Joker (The Dark Knight)
2- Abaddon the Despoiler (Warhammer 40k)
3- Bane (the dark knight rises)
4- Loki (Thor)
5- Magneto (X 1,2,3 & first class)
6- Fire-Lord Azula
7- Harvey "Two-Face" Dent (The dark Knight)
8- Freesa (Dragon Ball Z)
9- Cell (Dragon Ball Z)
10- Buu (Dragon Ball Z)
There are my top to. I probably missed some but hey, These guys are great. I put Abaddon due to the fact that he kicks so much but when I play against him.
Yes. Nerd problems. I suspect many here can sympathize. Fortunately, I can put a 300 page book away in 3 or so hours of heavy reading. So yeah. I've read most every nerdbook I've heard of and gave a crap about.
It makes me sad, though. I'm running out of legitimate classics to hit up. I've cut through Verne. Rodenberry. Heinlein. Bradbury. Clarke (who still stands as my favorite- I love legitimate, hard science based, fiction novels where the writer actually does some research and perhaps knows a tiny bit of actual SCIENCE for a change). A few of the more modern ones such as Card and Cook... the latter is also very good for hard scifi... for some reason I enjoy McCaffrey, despite there being absolutely nothing "hard" about her brand of scifi.
EDIT: Oooh. Azula. I feel kinda bad for not thinking of her. *goes back over my list*... buuut... sadly... there's no one that she could replace on my list.
Indeed good call on Azula, and Abbadon aye? Chaos rocks good sir.
I hate to be a hater but movie Bane on a top 10 list is a bit premature. Where as Tom Hardy's performance was great ( even with the crazy sauce Sean Connery impersonation) the. Haracyerizatoon was lacking to me. But again I may be a hater.
And TanaNari you sir are a mad man. That's super human read times man. Have you read any Harlan Ellison? He's consistently been one of my favorites. I've always enjoyed sci fi, but been more of a fantasy guy myself. So hard sci fi is often beyond me.
1: Jagaang the Just - Sword of Truth
2: The Joker - The Dark Knight
3: Kefka - Final Fantasy 6
4: Tehren Loghain - Dragon Age: Origins
5: Laharl - Disgaea (and while he's the main character, he is indeed a villain)
6: Ghaleon - Lunar: The Silver Star
7: Voldemort - Harry Potter
8: Dr. Hannibal Lecter - Silence or the Lambs
9: Orochimaru - Naruto (the bastard just won't stay dead)
10: Hal 9000 - 2001: A Space Odyssey
I couldn't do a "top ten", so I did three top fives; top five favourite, top five hated, and top five scariest.
