Usually in movies, the villain, antagonist, the bad guy gets on our nerves.

Their mindset and sheer will to thwart the progress of the hero creates some sort of empathy for the “blowman” and hatred for the “killer”.

It usually is easy to hate the villains-but not the list of villains we have here. We love these ones for the kind of villains they were.

The Joker

There would not be a Batman without a Joker. Joker’s smirk and snarky comments gives the film its humor side. There has been a time or two when we loved Joker than Batman.

Count Dracula plays host to every monster in Hotel Transylvania where he tries to prevent her vampire daughter from  marrying her human love interest. Dracula’s funny attempts to separate the couple just hides his antagonistic side.

It is no surprise this Mikaelson is everyone’s favorite. The arrogance and self-confidence the character exudes in The Originals series makes him a fan favorite even when he is on a heart-ripping spree.

Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent has become film’s most beloved evil witch. She charms her way to our hearts while completely hiding her evil side…and we are suckers for Angelina Jolie so…

Ice Queen


A powerful sorceress with the ability to manipulate ice and snow, Freya was the second-born daughter of an unnamed sorceress, the younger sister of Queen Ravenna and the older sister of Finn. Although she seemed to be as cold, ruthless, and manipulative as her sister, she proved to be a sympathetic character, especially given how she helped Eric to destroy her evil sister once and for all.

Squidward Tentacles

Spongebob’s arch enemy, Squidward is as a bitter, very unfortunate, desperate, somewhat depressed and arrogant octopus. He hates Spongebob and Patrick’s easy-going attitude and constantly finds ways to make them miserable.

 Swiper, no swiping!..damn we miss our childhood. The sly fox Swiper always caused trouble for Dora the Explorer on her expeditions. We all loved shouting “Swiper, no swiping!” with Dora to stop that fox.

Gru is everyone’s favorite super villain. If you have watched the Despicable Me movies, which we would be wondering why you’ve not, you can’t help but fall in love with Gru’s antics. Whether he is on the quest to either steal the moon or destroy the world, Gru does it in an adorable manner…and those cute little minions of his too!
