** Scarface and the Ventriloquist, sweet Jesus. Even in the long and storied history of [[DemonicDummy terrifying ventriloquist dummies]], Scarface easily rises to the top of the pack. Not to mention that the character's status as a bloodless wooden dummy allowed the creators to inflict all sorts of [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence hideous violence]] on him that they could never get away with on a human being.

** Season 2 gives us the grand-daddy of them all, AKA '''Darth-Fucking-Vader.''' Every encounter the character have with him is a battle just to stay ''alive'' and he opens his first episode by [[CurbStompBattle devastating an entire Rebel fleet single-handedly.]]

** Two-Face's design in this show was the first to use the half black/half white [[BadassInANiceSuit business suit]] look, and it's safe to say that the character has [[EvilIsCool never looked better.]]
** The Joker. Full stop. Credit to the creators for taking into account an [[ExecutiveMeddling executive mandate]] (that the Joker couldn't kill anyone on the show) and using it to come up with the horrifying [[SlasherSmile "Joker smile"]] gas, which is actually ''[[BodyHorror much]] [[AndIMustScream worse.]]'' Not to mention Creator/MarkHamill's legendary voice acting, which has become so iconic that pretty much every other actor to portray the character since has fallen into one of two categories: "trying to do Mark Hamill" or "not even bothering to try and compete with Mark Hamill."
** The show's first incarnation of the Scarecrow was more of an IneffectualSympatheticVillain, but the ReTool version, '''[[NightmareFuel EGADS.]]''' He sprays people with ''literal'' weaponized NightmareFuel. He looks like a rotting corpse in [[SinisterMinister black preacher robes]] that the creators explicitly compared to [[Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre1974 Leatherface.]] And he has the utterly bone-chilling voice of Creator/JeffreyCombs. Is it any wonder why this version of the character is so popular?



** Tarkin was in three episodes. [[ForegoneConclusion We knew who he was and what he was going to become]]. We saw him bonding with Anakin, making sure we saw ''Film/ANewHope'' in a new light. And we watched as he served under Evan Piel, one of the most badass Jedi in existence. It was definitely creepy and very awesome.

* The Inquisitor, a ghostly pale warrior with a buzzsaw lightsaber and the effortlessly cool voice of Creator/JasonIsaacs, as well as his boss Governor Tarkin, whose first action in the series is [[spoiler: having the [[[IneffectualSympatheticVillain goofy villain]] [[ThoseTwoGuys duo]] [[YouHaveFailedMe decapitated by the Inquisitor for their failure.]]
* Season 2 gives us the grand-daddy of them all, AKA '''Darth-Fucking-Vader.''' Every encounter the character have with him is a battle just to stay ''alive'' and he opens his first episode by [[CurbStompBattle devastating an entire Rebel fleet single-handedly.]]
* Starting in the Season 2 finale and dropping in occasionally in Season 3 is much-beloved ''Clone Wars'' veteran [[spoiler: Darth Maul]], who ends his first episode by [[spoiler: brutally slaughtering two Inquisitors and [[EyeScreen slicing Kanan's eyes out]] ''onscreen.'']]
* The much-beloved [[CanonImmigrant Grand Admiral Thrawn]], who is every bit the MagnificentBastard he was in Legends and then some. Half the fun of Season 3 is [[EvilIsCool watching him run circles around the protagonists]]. And that's not even mentioning his [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome chilling, kickass theme music.]]

Added DiffLines:

* This trope owes ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' some serious money. It's easier to list the villains who ''don't'' qualify for this trope - but we're going to list the ones who do regardless.
** Clayface, whose shapeshifting transformation powers are [[ParanoiaFuel unnerving]], [[BodyHorror gross]], and [[AwesomeArt beautifully animated.]]

* ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'': Monika is [[spoiler:a {{Yandere}}... for [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the player]]. Not the character you're playing as, ''you''.]] She gets a lot of love from the fanbase in large part due to her [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds tragic circumstances]], [[EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor inappropriate puns]], creepy glitching motif, and having the kind of personality you [[DissonantSerenity wouldn't]] [[AffablyEvil expect]] from a character like her.

* The many depictions of Death, would obviously be seen this way. The most common (and frankly clique) depiction of Death is the Grim Reaper, early artwork of the Middle Ages foreshow our skeletal friend at his most sinister.
