TV’s Best Villains

mykel14mykel14 PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
Enough of the heroes and leading men and women already. It’s time for our sick, deplorable and most loved to hate characters to shine! :lol: Without them, how would the protagonists become the heroes they’re supposed to be? Be it reality TV, comedy, drama or sci-fi, I’m sure we have our favorite and memorable villains to root against.

Who do you think are some of the best TV villains to ever grace the small screen?

Let me share mine:

[CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell
Prison Break

theodore-bagwell.jpg

I don’t think any list would be considered valid without T-Bag. He’s just the most villainous among the villainous members of Fox River Eight. You name the crime, he’s done it![/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

[CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Lex Luthor
Smallville

lex-luthor-picture.jpg

One of the biggest villains in the comic books. In Smallville, we saw how he transformed from being Clark Kent’s friend to Superman’s archrival.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

[CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]DEX+Arthur+mitchell.jpg
Arthur Mitchell
Dexter

The trinity killer.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

I’m sure I missed a number of obvious choices. There’s this one guy from LOST and another one from Heroes. Maybe some of you will share the lady from Ugly Betty and Coach Sue from Glee! Or even Dan Scott from One Tree Hill. :lol:

Share yours here. :)

    As for current TV shows, I’m pretty confident Queen Katherine and Klaus from The Vampire Diaries will be mentioned, given the number of fans they have in this sub-forum. But for me, the strongest and most-effective are these three ladies:

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Cersei_Lannister_600.jpg
    Cersei Lannister
    Game of Thrones

    Bow down to your queen.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    One more time, please. :lol:[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]EvilQueen.jpg

    Right now I can only think of Sylar.

    heroes_promo_sylar.jpg

    I know Heroes sucked after a while, but it did give us one of the most memorable villains ever - a psychopath with superpowers, which he uses to cut open people's heads and study their brains in order to gain even more superpowers. Those eyebrows are pretty sinister as well. :glee:

    And +1 for Cersei Lannister. I frickin' hate that woman! I love Lena Headey though, and the fact that she makes me want to strangle her on Game of Thrones is a testament to her acting chops.
  • Wilhelmina Slater of Ugly Betty

    Victoria Grayson of Revenge
  • I have tons of favorite villains but this character tops the list.

    Ben_Linus2.jpg
    Benjamin Linus
    LOST
    Possibly the most manipulative and most deceptive character on tv. He strangle to death the most popular character on the show(John Locke), he sacrificed his daughter, he's a mass murderer. He has the best game face, you can never tell when he's bluffing or telling the truth. I don't think anyone played a better antagonist role than Michael Emerson. But with everything he's done you can still sympathize for him.

    Others:
    Gus Fring Breaking Bad
    Lex Luthor, Brainiac, General Zod Smallville
    T-Bag Prison Break/Breakout Kings
    Felicia Tillman Desperate Housewives
    Cersei Lannister Game of Thrones
    Tony Soprano The Sopranos
    Nina Myers 24
    Juliet Sharp Gossip Girl
    Sylar Heroes


    More of anti-heroes rather villains but they had their villain moments
    Dexter Morgan Dexter
    Tess Mercer Smallville
    Blair Waldorf Gossip Girl
    Walter White Breaking Bad
    Noah Bennet Heroes
    Edie Britt Desperate Housewives

  • PandaemonaeonPandaemonaeon Moderator PEx Moderator
    What's with the spoiler tags? Sa future seasons pa ba ire-reveal na villains sila? :glee:

    Anyway I've seen T-Bag, Marlo Stanfield, Arthur Mitchell, Snoop, David Xanatos, Nina Myers, and to a lesser extent (lol) Sylar and Lex Luthor but I will have to go with this guy:

    :lol: is she coming back? parang wala na siya in Parks' most recent episode.

    sorry 'bout those tags. :D the ones in the first post are purely for keeping the message shorter.

    badass villain pala si giancarlo in breaking bad. now he's a trying hard antagonist in OUAT. :lol:
  • Not the best villains but I like Ali Larter's dark side(multiple personality) on HEROES and also Kristen Bell's role having the lightning powers.

    And of course SIMON COWELL and KARA DIOGUARDI on past seasons of American Idol.

    I think what makes Gus Fring the best villain I have ever seen (and for a lot of people too as seen here and here) is that he's different.

    I mean sociopathic serial killers, superpowered bad guys, terrorists, evil cyborgs, unflappable contest judges, corrupt authority figures, Herostratic fame-seeking reality show contestants — are a dime a dozen, sobrang gasgas na. How ironic that a 90s cartoon (David Xanatos from Gargoyles) will be the first and last to break the mold?

    Like Xanatos, I think we all want a new bad guy. Someone much more complex than your typical serial villain and Gus brought that to live action television. Kudos to Vince Gilligan for coming up with the character and of course, Giancarlo for his chilling portrayal.
