Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Villains
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic. I’m a huge fan of lists, so this meme is right up my alley!
This week’s topic is All About The Villains. I haven’t narrowed my list down any further; this is just a list of my top ten favorite villains from books, movies, and television.
I usually find it hard to put my lists in any kind of ranking order, but I’ve decided to go ahead and do it here. So this list starts from 10, and goes to my number 1 all-time favorite villain! I’m sure I have forgotten some villains that I’ve loved over the years, but oh, well. So here is my list (click on the pictures for links to reviews, etc.):
My Top Ten Favorite Villains of All Time
I didn’t love Fairest as much as the rest of the series, but I like how it showed more of Levana’s background. She’s not really redeemed in that book, but we catch a glimpse as to why she became so evil.
We haven’t seen much of Negan in the TV adaptation of The Walking Dead yet, but we’ve seen quite a bit of him in the comics so far, and I have to say, he’s a much bigger, badder villain than The Governor.
I mean, I can hardly have a list of villains without listing Voldy. However, he’s not the villain I love to hate the most from the Harry Potter series, as you’ll see below.
Loki is a great character, made even better by Tom Hiddleston! ???
I am SUPER scared of clowns and while watching It, I had to keep telling myself “It’s just Tim Curry in a clown suit.”
I am so in love with this series right now, so of course the titans are going to have a spot on my list. I mean, they’re super creepy and they eat humans, so yeah.
Every villain in this movie was horrifying. I was mostly scared of Princess Mombi and the Wheelers as a kid, but the Nome King, Dr. Worley, and Nurse Wilson were super scary, too. It’s still my favorite movie, though. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The Oracle from The Map to Everywhere is just such a cool villain. And really creepy, too. I thought of him as a mix between No-Face from Spirited Away and the masked creatures in the Doctor Who episode entitled “The Girl in the Fireplace.” Creeepy.
Umbridge is definitely worse than Voldemort. I mean, they’re different types of villains. Voldemort represents all evil, but Umbridge represents that real evil person that we find in real life, which is terrifying.
Andrew Scott just does such an incredible job bringing Moriarty to life in Sherlock. Moriarty is already a great villain, but I just feel like Andrew Scott was born for the role. Just thinking about it makes me want to watch the show all over again!
Who are your favorite villains of all time? Let me know, or leave a link to your TTT in the comments, and I’ll try to stop by your blog!

I went with Moriarty and Voldemort too…I went with Villains I enjoy though so no Umbridge for me because I loathe the very fiber of her being. Loki is a good one too, I wish I’d included him^^

Voldemort and Moriarty have made quite a few lists this week! They are such classic villains ;) Negan has made several lists this week, too. I guess everyone is anxiously awaiting to see if it matches up to the comics or not.

I’ve only seen the TWD show so I don’t know much about Negan yet, but I think I already hate him! And Loki is such a good one. The best Marvel villain by far.

Oh man. This is a great list. I completely agree with you on Pennywise. I love Tim Curry like crazy and that role is insane. You can barely see that it’s him. I also love Andrew Scott’s Moriarty.

I’m not sure who I think is more villainous… Umbridge or Voldemort. They’re both despicable in the same and different ways.
