This is the definitive list of Totes Favs: Disney Villains, as determined in the completely scientific Totes Favs Battledome. Disagree? Let us know in the comments and we promise not to suck the lives out of Salem’s children.
5. JAFAR from Aladdin
Aladdin’s arch enemy with a twisty beard and an even twistier heart. He stopped at nothing to defeat Aladdin – enchanted the Sultan, creeped on Princess Jasmine, and turned into an all-powerful evil genie and tried to kill everyone. But he couldn’t defeat his own hubris. BYE.
4. RABIES from Old Yeller
Our only non-corporeal item on the list, but that doesn’t make it any less nasty. Rabies turned a beloved yellow dog into a snarling monster, and turned our childhood into a place where you need to take your Mama’s shotgun and shoot your best friend in the head to end his “sufferin’.” I can’t type anymore because I’m crying too hard.
3. LOTS-O’-HUGGIN BEAR from Toy Story 3
Other iterations of Toy Story might have had more terrifying villains – Sid, Stinky Pete, puberty – but something about Lotso’s psychopathic leadership and multiple betrayals made this strawberry-scented bear one of our more complex bad guys.
2. SCAR from The Lion King
Idiot, he will be King! No one can match the machinations of this lion. Whether it’s killing his own brother with his own paws or leading a gang of hyena storm-troopers into battle, never has evil seemed so cool. I blame the buttery soft vocals from Mr. Jeremy Irons.
1. URSULA from The Little Mermaid
Life’s full of tough choices, innit? Not this one! Ursula was our Queen from the very beginning. With a look borrowed from Divine, this cephalapod stole scenes and Ariel’s voice, in one shimmy of her ample bosom. Calling all the basic witches. You’re basic.
From Zara: I feel like my Mombi pick was a misfire, as opposed to being a TotesFav villain she is a TotesFav Childhood Terror. Just watch this scene before bed and tell me how it goes. DOROTHY GALE! DOROTHYYYYY GAAAAALE!
