Vote up the details that hit the mark.

From Darth Vader attempting to rule a galaxy far, far away to Anton Chigurh terrorizing the Texas plains with a cattle gun, the most famous movie villains have a way of sticking with us. In addition to having insidious personalities and diabolical intent, these characters also tend to have some memorable details when it comes to weapons and combat, which fans of these big baddies have been eager to share. In Terminator 2: Judgement Day, for example, the T-1000 starts to show signs of malfunctioning near the end-- its skin ripples like liquid for seemingly no reason at all. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki always has a trick up his sleeve. In Avengers: Infinity War, the God of Mischief conceals a dagger with invisibility when trying to attack Thanos. Even the magical world of Disney has these details! In The Lion King, watch closely and you'll notice Scar is the only lion on Pride Rock to always have his claws exposed.
