The Greatest Movie Villains of All Time


The value of any protagonist depends on his nemesis — the higher the villain, the harder the test for the hero. An antagonist is someone who understands human nature’s darkest corners, and self-righteously chooses to destroy anyone who comes in his way.

A villain is an influential character that imprints purpose in my mind. To be willing to go lengths, most can only dream of is a sign of greatness, but the regressive approach is a big no for me. These are the greatest of Villains according to me.

The Joker

“Why So serious?”

Heath Ledger gave the most exceptional performance of all time. His immersion in the character was so hauntingly beautiful that we loved him more than Batman. Every single frame he was in was a work of pure genius. I can only he was here to play more significant characters.

Darth Vader

Be careful not to choke on your convictions.

The original Darklord was the most feared villains of all time. The deep voice of James Earl Jones added horror in the character that we compelled to hate Darth Vader yet be impressed by him at the same moment.

Amon Goeth

This is very cruel, Oskar. You’re giving them hope. You shouldn’t do that. *That’s* cruel!

Based on the real-life character, Amon Goeth was played by Ralph Finnes. No character has ever sent my blood run cold as he did. His cruelty was beyond horror, it was madness. Even Satan himself would be baffled on Amon’s inclinations or actions.


I know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail nonetheless. It’s frightening, turns the legs to jelly. I ask you to what end? Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. And now it’s here. Or should I say, I am.

The self-proclaimed prophet defeated the Avengers once. His notions were so lucid that at one point, I was convinced he was correct. But his radical nature convinced me otherwise. One of the most loved modern Antagonist, Thanos, will be remembered for a long time.
