1The dastardly villains in the Alex Rider series.˛˛[[foldercontrol]]˛˛!!Sayle Industries ˛[[folder: Herod Sayle]]˛˛An evil billionaire who wants to kill all of Britain's children via a computer virus he has placed in free computers he's given out.˛----˛* AdaptationalNameChange: His name is changed to Darrius Sayle in the movie.˛** AdaptationalNationality: And top of that, he is changed from Lebanese to American in the movie. ˛* BadGuysPlayPool: He plays pool with Alex Rider.˛* BigBad: Of Stormbreaker.˛* BondVillainStupidity: Averted. He dumps Alex in a Portuguese man of war tank; while it seems pretty elaborate, it's a trap he's 99% guaranteed to not survive, and Alex probably wouldn't have if he hadn't smuggled one of Smithers's gadgets into the tank with him. He also sends Nadia to make sure he dies.˛* EvilIsPetty: Wants to kill thousands of children because the British PM bullied him in the past.˛* FauxAffablyEvil: Acts kindly to Alex but when Alex's true identity is revealed is far less pleasant.˛* FreudianExcuse: Wants to manipulate the Prime Minister into killing thousands of children because he got bullied by him as a child.˛** FreudianExcuseIsNoExcuse: But of course, it's a completely weak excuse, which Alex calls him out for.˛-->'''Alex''': Lots of kids get bullied and they don't turn into nutcases. You're really sad, Mr. Sayle.˛* MeaningfulName: A [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massacre_of_the_Innocents Biblical one]] at that, sharing his name with the king who (allegedly) ordered the mass murder of children around the time of Jesus's birth.˛** It's also a pun on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrods Harrods']] Sale˛* MisplacedRetribution: Wants to kill all of Britain's children via manipulating the Prime Minister since he bullied him as a child.

She was also Miss South Africa in weight-lifting for five years in a row and her strength bowls over Alex in every encounter.˛* TheDragon: To Dr. Grief, as the vice-principal of Point Blanc.˛* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Regularly smokes cigars.˛* {{Gonk}}: Every time she appears, the book gives her an unflattering description.˛˛[[/folder]]˛˛!!Skeleton Key˛[[folder: Alexei Sarov]]˛A Russian General who wants to restore Communism via using a nuclear submarine.˛* AffablyEvil: The only villain that shows Alex genuine kindness, and he honestly believes he's doing what's best for Russia, though his methods are questionable at best.˛* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: Is so distraught that his plans were ruined combined with Alex telling him that he'd never want a father like him that he [[DrivenToSuicide kills himself]].]]˛* EvilIsPetty: One of his plans after restoring Communism is to rebuild the Berlin Wall.˛* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler:Sarov knows there is an underwater cavern beneath his island and deliberately set a trap to kill anyone who ventures there.]]˛* GloriousMotherRussia: Rose through the ranks under the Soviet Union.˛* KingpinInHisGym: Runs 24 miles around his plantation every morning.˛* RedScare: Russian and evil.˛* ReplacementGoldfish: Wants to adopt Alex after the death of his son.˛* WeCanRuleTogether: Promises to make Alex one of the most powerful people in the world after his plan succeeds.˛* WellIntentionedExtremist: Believes Russia was better off under Communism. ˛* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Was driven to villainy via [[OutlivingOnesOffspring the death of his son,]] combined with the fall of the Soviet Union.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Conrad]]˛* BloodKnight: Smiling when he finally gets the chance to beat Alex to a pulp.˛* BodyHorror: You don't survive ''getting blown up by a bomb in your hands'' without picking up some nasty injuries to go along with it.˛* ColdBloodedTorture: Interrogates Alex when he's tied to a slow-moving grinding mill.

He miraculously survived.˛** [[spoiler:Though the metal plates holding him together prove to be his undoing.]]˛* MadeOfIron: Almost literally: He has at least thirty metal pins in his body and easily shrugs off Alex's blows.˛* PunnyName: Conrad sounds like 'comrade'˛* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: When he was nine, he blew up his school with a bomb made in chemistry class [[DisproportionateRetribution after he was given a detention for being late.]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛!!Drevin Industries˛˛[[folder: Nikolei Drevin]]˛˛[[/folder]]
