5. Colonel Mael Radec
. He may look like your stereotypical gasmask man with a gun, but Radec is one cool customer. He is fiercely dedicated to the Helghast army, a master on the battlefield and a military genius. Despite his single-minded pursuit of war
, Radec is somehow a highly charismatic villain who could well have the player Rooting for the Empire
. He certainly did for me. His serious, stoic personality also lent itself well to Playstation All Stars Battle Royale
, where he became a highly effective straight man
for Sir Daniel Fortesque.
Their scenes together are hysterical.
4. Uka Uka
, for being the first genuinely menacing villain
I saw in a game. For the first two games, Cortex as a villain was your typical platformer villain like Bowser or Dr Eggman - he's serious about what he does, but his hamminess, silly appearance and ever so slight campness keep things light-hearted. Uka Uka was different. He was playing for keeps. He has a much more intimidating appearance and harsher personality than Cortex,
and introduces his own minion to oversee Cortex, N.Tropy, who is a Knight of Cerebus
in his own right, fittingly enough. He is also the Bigger Bad
behind Cortex's past schemes and the twin brother of Aku Aku.
Giving Cortex his own mask was a great idea and Uka Uka's presence makes Crash Bandicoot 3 a fitting end to the P Sone
trilogy. However, he was hit hard by Villain Decay
after Crash Bash
, which keeps him from ranking higher.
, the video game equivalent of a used car salesman. While he rarely gets personally involved in any villainy, he is the one pulling the strings in the Twisted Metal tournament, and he almost always gets the last laugh.
Be very careful what you say around him.
, for being one of gaming's biggest Love to Hate
villains. We know that he's in the running for the title of Worst Dad Ever
, and whatever he did can't have helped his son N
, but most of it took place offscreen, giving the fandom an excuse to go nuts with fanon about how evil Ghetsis is and that he drinks the tears of orphaned Cubones.
The Complete Monster
page has had some trouble keeping Ghetsis off there because of this. Ghetsis has the most personality of any Pokemon villain, and that personality makes him the most terrible person in the series, in the best possible way. He also has a Hydreigon ten levels earlier than he's supposed to, the jerk.
1. Master Xehanort
. Everything bad that has ever happened in Kingdom Hearts
can be traced back to Master Xehanort. He is so evil that, having realised that he can only do so much evil by himself, he decides to create multiple incarnations of himself so that he can get more done. He's nothing if not ambitious. He has all sorts of situations planned, and he's good at altering things on the fly should his original plan get thwarted somehow. His appearance as an infirm old man, combined with excellent voicework from Leonard Nimoy, helps convey that here is a man who seems much more ancient than he actually is. He's been around for a long time and he knows all there is to know. He is also ruthless and will ruin the lives of anyone who gets in his way, best portrayed when he talks to Mickey about some past victims in a completely nonchalant manner.
The level of sheer darkness
surrounding him is almost awe-inspiring. In this case, Evil Is Cool
