The best villains leave a mark on both the characters and the audience long after they're defeated. On the big screen, villains get one film to shine, while on TV, antagonists sometimes have hundreds of episodes over a whole series to prove their evil and terrifying bonafides. The more impressive feat is when a TV villain shows up out of the blue and forces series regulars to respect their power before being written off.
With chilling goals and captivating performances, these characters prove it only takes one season to make a lasting impact on not only the fictional world where they wreak havoc, but also the memory of audiences. Some may subvert their sitcom roots while others revitalize careers, in the end, all of these antagonists live on in the scars they leave behind.
