13 Scariest, Hard-To-Forget Disney Villains Of All Time
We rank the scariest and most memorable Disney villains of all time. Which one do you remember the most?
13. Yzma, The Emperor's New Groove. An eccentric villain, Yzma sees herself as the most beautiful person in the land and only turned against Kuzco once he fired her for meddling into affairs.
12. Gaston, Beauty and the Beast. Unlike other villains, Gaston is physically attractive and is the first male villain to appear in a Disney movie
11. Cruella de Vil, 101 Dalmatians. Cruella de Vil is an aristocrat whose name actually is a combination of the words "cruel" and "devil". Pretty scary for a name don't you think?
10. Captain Hook, Peter Pan. Unlike other villains, Captain Hook was one of the most adored Disney characters due to his bumbling personality. Even Walt Disney insisted that Hook does not get killed in the cartoon because he liked him so much.
9. Hades, Hercules. A master manipulator, the God of the Underworld has an undeniably short temper, getting angry at the slightest provocation.
8. Queen of Hearts, Alice in Wonderland. "OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!" The Queen always says this when she gets angry, just like Hades.
7. Ursula, The Little Mermaid. Did you know? King Triton and Ursula were once siblings? Ursula was designed as a Cecaelia, which is a legendary hybrid of human and octopus.
6. Jafar, Aladdin. The famed sorcerer is known for his cunningness and his quest for power. Sir Patrick Stewart was originally asked to voice him in the cartoon but had to turn it down due to his involvement in Star Trek.
5. Scar, The Lion King. "Run away Simba, and never come back!" The chilling words uttered by the uncle Scar is one of Disney's iconic lines. Did you know? Scar's real name is King Taka, which in Swahili means "want".
4. The Evil Queen, Snow White. The queen actually has a name! Queen Grimhilde. Don't you think it's pretty terrifying? She makes it a mission to destroy Snow White in a pursuit to be the fairest of them all. Talk about taking vanity to the next level.
3. Lady Tremaine, Cinderella. Although she doesn't possess any powers or physically hurt Cinderella, her cruelty and her psychological punishments to Cinderella makes her one of the most hated Disney villains ever.
2. Claude Frollo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Frollo is a deeply religious man who will do whatever he takes to get what he wants. He even considered burning the whole of Paris to find Esmeralda, the gypsy.
1. Maleficent, Sleeping Beauty. Perhaps the scariest Disney villain of all time, her name originated from the Latin word malificenta which means "evil-doing".
