We all know that Disney is renowned for its charming princesses, brave heroes, and magical tales that have captivated audiences for decades.
But let’s not forget about the villains, those infamous characters who make our heroes’ journeys all the more thrilling.
While we may despise their wicked deeds and ruthless ambitions, we can’t help but be fascinated by them.
1. Scar from The Lion King
Scar, the treacherous yet charismatic lion from The Lion King, lands the top spot on our list. His sinister plot to usurp his brother Mufasa and seize control of the Pride Lands enthralled audiences, while his villainous charm and dry wit made him a character we loved to hate.
2. Ursula from The Little Mermaid
Coming in second is the cunning sea witch, Ursula, from The Little Mermaid.
Her relentless pursuit of power and willingness to deceive poor, unsuspecting Ariel in order to achieve her goals make her one of Disney’s most detestable villains.
Yet, her flamboyant personality and unforgettable performance of Poor Unfortunate Souls make her a villain we can’t help but enjoy.
3. Gaston from Beauty and the Beast
Rounding off our top three is Gaston, the narcissistic hunter from Beauty and the Beast.
His relentless pursuit of Belle, despite her clear disinterest, and his determination to kill the Beast at all costs, make him a villain we love to despise.
Despite his villainy, Gaston’s over-the-top charm and humor make him a character audiences can’t help but be entertained by.
Disney villains, while wicked and ruthless, serve a crucial role in making Disney’s stories engaging and memorable. They challenge our heroes, make us question our values, and, in some cases, even make us laugh.
They’re characters we love to hate, and this list is a tribute to some of the best in the business.
