I love villains. The more over the top they are the more I love them. Originally slated to be a collection of trading cards I wanted to gather together some of my all time favorite villains from film, television and literature. Basically any fictional medium out there. While I never did end up getting them printed, I still really enjoy them as a collection.
In the event you don’t recognize my Rogue’s Gallery below is a list and why I love them:
- Dr. Horrible from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
- Dr. Horrible my be the least well known of the villains on this page, but he’s my favorite. He sings, his freeze ray doesn’t put people on ice and his new boss is a horse, a Bad Horse.

- Voldemort from Harry Potter
- If Voldemort had a mustache he would just sit around twirling it. There’s not a lot of ambiguity when it comes to The Dark Lord, which is why nobody can say his name.

- O’Ren Ishii from Kill Bill
- The villain profession is still a man’s world. When I started out with my list I figured a kick-ass lady would be easy to add, but if you look it, most female villains are either stereotypical sexy femme fatales, or sidekicks. The thing I loved most about O’Ren is not only competent and deadly, but she is the boss.

- Blofeld from James Bond
- I chose Blofeld to be included more for that “classic” feel than any real connection. He’s really become the iconic villain, so much so that he’s become somewhat of a parody of himself.

- Darth Vader from Star Wars
- As a kid I found Vader terrifying, even before I knew what he was. I had the same fear of Doctor Doom, and I thought they were the same person for a while, so I think it has everything to do with that mask. Just look at!
