Movies, TV shows, video games, books, whatever....flash cartoons maybe? Who's your favorite (most hated) villain in any medium? Off the top of my head... 1) Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII...most anyone who's played that game through knows what I'm talking about. I would have killed hime with my own hands... He was a bad, bad man. Of course, that was one of the main factors that made FF VII so great, a true hatred of the antagonist...when you're playing an eighty hour game it's good to actually want to get to the end and take out your foe... 2) The Emperor in Return of the Jedi...also a bad, bad man...I cannot think of an actor ever more convincingly portray evil without just seeming insane, or just evilly disturbed (like Kevin Spacey in Seven, also excellent). 3) Celesta from the Coldfire trilogy. Probably mostly from the fact that the Coldfire trilogy (Black Sun Rising, When True Night Falls, and The Crown of Shadows) is just so damn well written. But for those who aren't hip, Celesta is an immortal demon-god born of the human emotion of Sadism. He belongs to a race called the Iezu who are all immortal and born of human emotions and all of whom have a symbiotic relationship with humans. They also have an incredible power of illusion. The way Friedman (author) writes with Celesta is ingenious. So is the whole trilogy, IMO, and the protagonists are amazingly compelling too...go read it! Hope this thread takes off, I know we all like a good villain... What are yer'all's faves?
