List Rules The greatest, baddest, and most memorable villains in martial arts movies

Even though a martial arts film can have a thin plot, and bad dialogue, that doesn't have to be a bad thing. What can lift a movie of this genre out of the basement is a great villain who fights real dirty, has quotable lines, and delivers an over the top performance. Often, the more dishonorable the better. If it can be said of these bad guys as Williams once exclaimed in Enter the Dragon, 'Man, you come right out of a comic book', then the chances are that they belong on this list.
