10) Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz (Phineas & Ferb)
Voiced by Dan Povenmire
Boy, this guys got a list of tragic and maliciously motivating backstories so long you could run a marathon on it. Yet despite his slightly pathetic demeanor upbringing, Doofenshmirtz still manages to pull a lot good laughs from us weither he’s dealing with divorced family life, battling Perry the Platypus (only to fail everytime) and using his flawed Inators to conquer the Tri State Area for personal, justified or trivial reasons.
9) Jack Spicer (Xiaolin Showdown)
Voiced by Danny Cooksey
Jack Spicer, evil boy genius, and a hilariously lousy one. But that doesn’t stop him from collecting Shen Gong Wu to aid him and Wuya in their quest for global dominance. His funny side comes from both his arrogance, awkwardness and cowardice, MOSTLY his cowardice, due to his high pitched screaming in the face of danger. There were even times when he actually aids the Xiaolin warriors when the odds are against both of them, giving Jack a little more depth to his character, even though he’d usually turn his back on the warriors when he sees an opportunity.
8) Dick Dastardly & Muttley (Wacky Races)
Voiced by Paul Winchell and Don Messick (Respectively) RIP
Now those two were definitely fun to watch. A classic villainous duo in one of the most awesome race cars ever. You’d think someone with the fastest car in the race would just keep going until they reach the finish line. However, Dastardly merely stops at the far front in order to trap or demolish the competition, only to have their plans backfire humorously. Some might find it consistently annoying that Dastardly deliberately stops only to inadvertently let people pass and ruin his chances of winning, but I think it provides Dastardly with an appropriate character flaw as much as it delivers the same old message of “cheaters never win’. Plus it the many ways that he fails that made us laugh, especially Muttley. Even though those two lose at every race, I think it drives people to want to see them win at least once, despite the fact that they’re the villains. I admit, I was steamed that one time he was apparently robbed of a legitimate victory when the judges revealed a clip of Dastardly “cheating”, but doesn’t stop me from watching and enjoying Dastardly and Muttley in races and winning by any means necessary.
7) Don Karnage (Talespin)
Voiced by Jim Cummings
As the Nostalgia Critic described Don Karnage. “Imagine if Ricky Ricardo got fed up with his wife, took his Caribbean band, and just started robbing the shit out of people. You get pretty much as hilarious a villain as you can conceive.” Boy, he couldn’t be any more right about this Guy. As a kid, I’ve always had a fascination with Pirates, but never have I dreamed of air fighting Pirates before I even heard of Talespin. This Multi-accented wolf is like most pirate captains I’ve seen, vicious, adventurous and obsessed with treasure. However, Don is quite possible the most unique Pirate captain compared to the others. As well as being able to fly with the greatest of ease during battle in his tri-wing terror, he brings that comical villain angle of looking down on his inferiors and admiring himself.
6) Psy-Crow (Earthworm Jim)
Also voiced by Jim Cummings
Nothing antagonizes a worm worst than a crow. And no one does it hilariously as the villainous Outer Space Bounty Hunter, Psy-Crow. His schemes included using a magic orb for destruction, stealing Earthworm Jim’s super suit, briefly overthrowing The Evil Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-filled, Malformed, Slug-for-a-Butt, treating those who were diagnosed from Superheroism, teaching uprising bad guys at a school of Neferious space villainy, etcetera, etcetera.
5) Police Chief Pamela Bondani (Patrol 03)
Voiced by Sonja Ball
This devilishly beautiful and ill-tempered Chief of the Los Diablos Police department was definitely a dangerous force to be reckoned with. What makes her so evil you ask? Her goal is to humiliate Mayor Alexander Walus enough to ruin his public image so that she herself can take control as the new Mayor of Los Diablos. And if that wasn’t bad enough, she hires mad scientist, Professor Molo to create monsters to wreak havoc on the city and secretly aligns with local criminal gangs. Did I forget to mention she’s mighty good at covering her tracks via disguises and alternate routes to Molo’s Lab which prove her criminal activities? Well, that must’ve been why Mayor Walus had trouble exposing her corruption for so long. Apart from her well hidden-treachery, she’s the perfect foil for the wackiest of citizens and moronic of cops while on duty as the police chief.
4) The Shredder (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1987)
Voiced by James Avery RIP
In the 1987 version of TMNT, Oroku Saki (AKA The Shredder) was much like Darth Vader, only with a Ninjutsu vibe mixed with a more stereotypical ruthless and bumbling supervillain angle. His Story arc with Krang and the Technodrome is quite interesting and really drives the series. At first, they were just under New York, but overtime, they end up going in and out of Dimension X, ending up in the Earth’s core, the North Pole, and Underwater. Thus, providing Shredder with numerous tasks to power up the Technodrome, (some of which involve causing mischief for the earth), only to be thwarted by the Turles.
3) Dr. Claw (Inspector Gadget)
Voiced by Frank Welker
An international crime lord and head of the MAD Organization who’s face was shrouded in mystery (until that toy of his was released), but his deep monstrous voice alone was enough to give us chills. The only thing s that personify this man’s presence is his chair with the MAD logo, and his awesome MAD Mobile than can transform into a car, a Submarine, and a rocket Jet whenever he needs to make his daring escape from the law or to pose a threat to the ever oblivious (and idiotic) Inspector Gadget!
2) Peridot (Steven Universe)
Voiced by Shelby Ann Rabara
Here’s a cute character I enjoyed watching on Steven Universe. This half-crazed, technologically advanced homeworld gem has a lot of build up surrounding her between her appearances, even more than her boss, Yellow Diamond. She started of as a mysterious new gem, but as the series progresses, we learn about her assignments involving the gem kindergarten, and we see her struggling to get back home after her and Jasper’s defeat during their first battle in space. I admit, I wasn’t fond of her emotionless personality at first, but now I’m really digging her character develop into an obnoxious and impatient recurring villainess. And yet, most of us can’t help but want very much to see Peridot redeem herself one day. Who knows? Maybe she will, maybe she won’t. The only thing that’s for sure about Peridot…is NOTHING’S for sure.
1) Sideshow Bob (The Simpsons)
Voiced by Kelsey Grammer
One of the most Iconic villains in my opinion. A refined and intellectual former children’s entertainer turned murderous criminal master mind. Known for his love for Gilbert and Sullivan Operas, and his Hatred for MacGyver, Television , Rakes and the Simpson Family (Particularly Bart). Next to the episodes where he marries and attempts to kill aunt Selma, works with his equally pompous brother Cecil, and switches faces with a minor offender, nothing comes close to being good as the episode “Cape Feare”, where we see he comical Parody of Max Cady, his first run-in with the rakes, and his magnificent singing performance.
