Ever since the 1980s, video game villains have been a major part of the video game industry. Whether it’s a mindless robot, a mad scientist, a power-hungry dictator, or a god who wants to eradicate all life in the universe, video game villains have challenged players with puzzles, boss fights, or just pure chaos. These five video game villains are among the best of the best. 

5. Dr. Eggman (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Dr. Eggman is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.  

Eggman is a fat, mad scientist who is literally insane. He is a cruel person and has caused havoc for all of the characters. He is also responsible for the robotization of Sonic's mother. However, Eggman does not do bad things because he wants to do so. He does them because he wants to save the earth for his species. Also, he is also a pretty good fighter. He's just a fun villain in my opinion.

4. Kefka (Final Fantasy 6) 

Kefka from Final Fantasy 6 is one of the most powerful villains in the series. He was a powerless mage in the beginning of the game, but with the help of the Emperor, he was able to take control of the world. Kefka is cruel and vicious, destroying whatever he can. He is even responsible for the world’s destruction, and at the end of the game, he is the only villain left standing. 

3. GLaDOS (Portal) 

GLaDOS from Portal is one of the most memorable video game villains of all time. A homicidal computer system that takes over Aperture Science, GLaDOS is only interested in one thing: science. She will do anything to get results, including killing the people who are in her way. Players must find their way through a series of tests with the only goal being to get to the surface.

He has done everything from kidnapping princesses to trying to destroy the Mushroom Kingdom, and has even teamed up with other villains to try and take down Mario.

1. Ganon (The Legend of Zelda) 

Ganon from The Legend of Zelda is the most powerful villain in the series. He doesn’t have a specific form, but he is usually depicted as a black beast. He has been the main antagonist of the series and has been trying to destroy Hyrule since he first appeared.
