Chad Concelmo provided us earlier with a truly inspired list of Disney villains
. While I commend Chad for his effort, I must step in to inform you that his list is BLATANTLY WRONG
! I intend to prove this with the use of SCIENCE and JOURNALISM. Read on for the correct and nationally accepted list of Disney's greatest villains.
10. Sheriff of Nottingham
Though the Sheriff is generally portrayed as a bit of a bungler and a fool throughout the film, the scene in which he steals money from the church's donation box, then fights Friar Tuck and clasps the poor old man in irons is incredibly depressing and quite nefarious.
9. Madam Mim
(Sword in the Stone)
Madam Mim's transformation into a dragon may not be nearly as terrifying as Maleficent's, but it is equally insane and 100x funnier. Plus she could turn into anything she likes, so she could've turned into a Maleficent-esque dragon, but she knew it was important to be pink and hilarious.
Dude wants to shoot people for fun!?
7. Lady Tremaine
Of all the villains on this list (and Chad's unquestionably inferior list), Lady Tremaine is the most common villain that exists in real life. A bitch of an abusive stepmother with no magic powers!? Raise your hand if you have one.
6. tie Medusa
(The Rescuers) & McLeach
(The Rescuers Down Under)
Similar to Lady Tremaine, these villains are more referential to real life. Both McLeach and Medusa have captured, and are essentially torturing a small child. The Rescuers' Medusa may not be the original Medusa, but she is the Medusa more likely to abduct your kids at Wal-Mart. These villains have single-handedly influenced nearly every episode of CSI and Law and Order.
(The Emperor's New Groove)
Chad, how could you forget this one?! She was the first Disney villain to make me laugh out loud. Aside from James Woods' take on Hades, the late Eartha Kitt's
voice and inflection make Yzma the most entertaining villain in the Disney canon.
3. The Queen
She may not transform into a dragon, but the old lady with the apple is arguably equally horrifying. The Queen set the standard for Disney villains.
2. Shere Khan
(The Jungle Book)
The only time I remember crying while watching a Disney movie is when I thought Shere Khan had killed Baloo. It was (and still is) the worst I have ever felt, ever! Even though I know now that Baloo lives, I still can't bring myself to watch that scene. It's just too sad... KAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHNNNNNNNN!
1. The Horned King
(The Black Cauldron)
Sweet mother of mercy! Do you see that?! The Horned King was effin' terrifying. He's like the abominable offspring of Maleficent and Skeletor. This guy will haunt you for the rest of your life. Sadly, The Black Cauldron is the least watched of all the films in the Disney canon.
Now that you've read the irrefutable list, tell me what you think - and let Chad know
how wrong he really is!
