  2. Fun! Okay, my favourite villain of all time is … hard to say, but I’m going to go with Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. A lot of villains are pure evil, working toward world domination, blah blah blah, but Umbridge was just PETTY. She’s one of the very few characters that I wanted to grab and pull out of the book so I could punch her in the face. Her blatant disregard for the health and safety of the students … her attempts to destroy their chances at actually surviving a battle with Death Eaters by refusing to teach them anything when she’s supposed to be a TEACHER … her takeover of the school … and most of all, her infuriating “hem hem” whenever all the attention in the room isn’t already on her. Argh!

  3. My favorite villan is Dexter from the tv show “Dexter”. He’s a serial killer who kills other serial killers. I love to hate him. I’m fascinated by the events in his life that made him the monster he is. Emily.

  4. Try Gerald Tarrant from C S Friedman’s “Cold Fire trilogy”. (Spoilers) You have a guy who in the beginning of the trilogy murders his own wife and children for power. How then could you possibly identify with such a person? He is evil personified. Someone who does not compromise in the pursuit of his goals. He will chase down victims in a vampiric manner. But then you understand *why*. That doesn’t lessen the impact of what he did, but you understand it. *That* is an anti-hero, I guess, but, evil? Oh yeah.

  6. I’ve created a number of Heroes and Heroines, but never a Villain. All of my villians were vague, shadowy things. Remembering some of my favorite stories the ones I liked best all had well-defined and precise villains. Today I created my first true Villian. I hope you hate him.
    His name is Jhordhan. He is a Soul-Eater Demon with the ability to appear human. His human appearance: 6 feet 6 inches tall; a well muscled 250 pounds; pale white skin; shoulder length, jet black hair, thick and shiny; brilliant sparkling green eyes; handsome chisled features; rich bass voice; dresses like a wealthy gentleman; and uses sandalwood scent. His Demonic form: 8 feet 6 inches tall; 500 pounds of muscle and bone; dark green blood; covered by black scales with a sickly green iridescent overlay; stiff bristles of coarse blood-red hair sprouting from between the scales; a pair of 10-inch long, sharply pointed horns emerging from his forehead; a double row of 30 3-inch long, dagger edged fangs in a huge mouth; 4 large eyes of bottomless red and black spirals; 6 razor keen talons on each hand; a deep, gravelly voice; smells rank and musty; and posses magic used to control humans. Why does he kill? He’s a Demon, it’s his nature. he sucks out the soul and leaves behind an empty husk. Emily.

  7. I’ve been thinking about this one a lot. My villain would be someone who is very ‘normal’. He would be the nice neighbour down the street. The guy who carried his son on his shoulders, who cared about his lawn. His name would be something simple like ‘Peter’, and he would smile at you every morning as you went to work. But inside, he would harbour a whole heap of neurosis. He would be afraid his wife cheated on him, although she didn’t, that she would turn out just like his mother who abandoned him. It is kind of classic CSI but at the same time, creepy. He would be nice looking, not necessarily drop dead gorgeous, but ‘pleasant’ so you take all those normal reactions people expect and turn them upside down. And I know this has been done a dozen times before, but at the same time, it really is those people. Those ones who can charm you with simplicity. The ones you least expect. How do you know the devil isn’t in the details? How do you know there isn’t a Celtic god behind his actions? How do you know someone didn’t turn him into a vampire?
    You wouldn’t, and you wouldn’t believe it, either.

  8. Ooh, and I ‘m betting in that human form he could get quite a few female souls. He sounds intriguing ….and a bit terrifying.

  9. It’s a good thing I’m running this contest and not trying to join cause I can’t make up my mind!

    I’ve been trying to come up with the most Evil Villain but I’m a little stumped. On a personal level, I feel like the most evil villain would be all of one’s fears coming to life. In a world scale, it’s whatever destroys life without thought of life. Going for cheese–Freddy Kruger or Predator from Alien! Mwahahahah—

    • If you really a want a World Destroyer try Galactus from the Marvel Comics Universe. He ate entire worlds. The Silver Surfer worked for him until he rebelled. You can also refer to “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” out on DVD. Emily.

  10. I don’t think Villains need to be obvious, nor do they need to be only interested in Word Domination. Mainly, I would describe a villain as someone who is motivated by self-interest, has a low respect for life (other than their own), and basically looks at the people around him/her as a means to an end, something to be used. And, in the villain’s mind, those people they use should consider it an honor — for the “greater good” even when that is in the villain’s own mind. Sometimes they are that way from birth. Sometimes they become that way over time.
