Top Ten Disney Villainesses


In honour of the anniversary of St. Valentine's death, I decided to do a top ten listing of my favourite Disney animated villains--- which just so happen to be villainesses (mostly). After all, Disney films are responsible for perpetuating the myths of 'happily ever after' and 'true love'. So here we go...

1) The Sea Witch. She was bad ass AND had a showstopping musical number. And she kept shriveled merpeople as a garden. Ew.

2) Wicked Stepmother from Cinderella. She defines the awful stepmonster roll.

3) Maleficient from Sleeping Beauty. She morphs into a dragon for christ's sake, how fucking cool is that?

4) Wicked Witch from Snow White. Must give her props for the apple trick and the talking mirror.

5) Medusa from the Rescuers. When she tells Penny the orphan "now why would anyone want to adopt an ugly little girl like you?" You just want to claw her eyes out.

6) Cruella deVil. Sort of a comical evil, she nonetheless was trying to turn dalmatians into a coat. Not cool.

7) Captain Hook. Classic villain. And a pirate!

8) Gaston from Beauty and the beast. He got musical numbers too, and he was fucking hot. But still evil.

9) Shan Yu the Hun (from Mulan). Mongolian BEEF! And he killed and burned villages, but survived an avalanche.

10) Jafar from Aladdin. Fey, but not as fey as Scar. Got a musical number. Probably fucked his parrot.


Honourable Mention: the hunter in Bambi. Even though you never see him, that shot ringing out and the silence afterward is absolutely chilling.

Of this list, my favorite villian (hands down) was Ursula the Sea Witch! Cue "Poor Unfortunate Soul".

i always thought of the Seven Dwarfs as villians. Crabby little buggers.

no way - you people are insane, insane i tell you - maleficient was the bomb with the wicked witch from s.w. coming a close second - i always thought of those two as sisters.

"You poor simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me, *me*! The Mistress of All Evil!" Maleficient

Maleficent, by far the coolest -- I love the way her staff *clacks* on the ground.

But c'mon ... Scar ... Jeremy Irons ... brilliant!

And I have to say until I saw it was an adult, I hadn't realized just HOW horrible Cinderella's stepmother was. Yikes.

Ursula is the best-- very fat drag queen and very evil. Great song. Plus she is very involved in the whole movie.

Maleficient, while being pretty darn cool and evil, really only makes her grand appearances at the beginning and the end of the movie.

Ursula is a villain you love to hate. Agreed.

Maleficent is the evilest of all the villains. But my all-time favorite is Hades - evil AND funny!

Jafar dude. Ursula, sure. She takes her voice. And tries to suffocate her, the old fashion way. But Jafar is like, twice as cool as Hook cuz Jafar has a parrot.

You guys, Frollo wanted to rape Esmeralda and commit genocide. I think he should rank at the top. Of course, Maleficent is also at the top.
