There have already been countless lists of the best villains in video games in the past, and chances are there are no two that are alike. The characters cannot be evil by any sort of outside forces influencing them. If they had a rough childhood, if they are out for revenge, if they’re being forced by a more powerful villain.
Given is the list of the best villains from gaming universe.
Gannondorf from Legend of Zelda
He is most likely, if he was allowed to be more than a Teen rated villain and get a mature or unrated game, the greatest evil and closest depiction to Satan in behavior and methods as we can imagine. He would likely try to eat little children if he thought it’d afford him more power. He makes no distinction between young, old, civilian, soldier, or even those who are his own people, the Gerudo, who time and time again he has led into disaster simply to further the suffering in the world and destroy any who would dare raise a finger to stop him.
Bowser from Super Mario
Bowser is pure evil. His goal to repeatedly kidnap Princess Peach is only fueled by the hate and envy he harbors towards Mario. His army is a group of henchmen that he doesn’t give a damn about and he does not even flinch as he places them near the greatest pits of danger, lava, deep holes and is basically using them as a shield. He doesn’t care for any other life other than his own and Princess Peach’s. And he is only desperate to keep Princess Peach alive for the sake of seeing the anguish in Mario as he himself saves the ability to feast over her.
Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII
Sephiroth is the baddest villian of all time. He has been in two different game franchises and is always hardest to beat. And his sword is longer than any katana in gaming history. I mean the man has his own theme music when the chorus is an orchestra singing his name. Fight sephiroth in kingdom hearts 1 & 2 and tell me he isn’t the baddest ever.
GLaDOS from Portal
She starts off as a voice. You are absolutely clueless as to who or what she is. She makes you complete test after test. She makes you befriend an inanimate Object. And then makes you incinerate it. And you are probably sick of hearing it, but the cake was a big lie. She tries to incinerate you in a big incinerator.
