The Greatest Animated Disney Villains

List Criteria: Villain characters from Disney animated movies computer-animated films

Who is the greatest animated Disney villain? Everyone, it seems, has a favorite. Over the decades, Disney movies have given movie goers some of the most dastardly villains in cinema history. They may be animated, but that doesn't mean they aren't, well, mean! This list includes some of the best Disney movie villains ever but are specifically villians in animated movies, so be sure to vote for your favorites, vote down the villains you don't think are worthy of the top spots, and add any disney villains who are missing.

Vote: The Best Disney Princesses

Disney villains come in many forms. Some, like the evil sorcerer Jafar ('Aladdin') and the "Mistress of All Evil,' Maleficent ('Sleeping Beauty'), have magical powers that allow them to wreak havoc on their poor, unsuspecting victims. Great Walt Disney movie villains may also be "regular" people who are simply bad apples.

Speaking of bad apples, Queen Grimhilde, from Disney's classic 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,' didn't necessarily have magical powers, but she was cruel beyond measure to Snow White, and a schemer of the highest order. Certainly, the same could be said of the horrible, no good Cruella de Vil from Disney's '101 Dalmatians.'

Rank: The Best Movie Villains of All Time

Some of the best Disney movie villains aren't even human. Examples? How about the evil python Kaa from 'The Jungle Book'? And without question Scar, the power hungry, sinister baby brother of Mufasa in 'The Lion King' is worthy of a spot on this list. Finally, last but certainly not least, the Big Bad Wolf from Walt Disney's 'Three Little Pigs' is a menacing character.
