You Must Know About Most Popular Disney Villans!

Many of us Millennials and Gen-Z’ers grew up watching Disney movies and dressing up like Ariel or Hercules. We all still sing along to “Be Our Guest” or “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You,” and Terk and Tantor have unique places in our hearts. But how do the villains affect us? Some of them are amusing, while others are tragic figures, and a couple are plain frightening.

There are also a few Disney villains and Disney films that are troublesome for a variety of reasons. However, this ranking will go beyond the characters’ much-discussed political incorrectness and go deep into their mind to determine why they are the way they are. Each villain’s position on the list will be determined by the depth of their character development and how they contribute to the progression of each of the stories.

10. Captain Hook (Peter Pan, 1953)

Since Captain Hook is the lone villainous pirate in the original Disney franchise, he has a significant edge over the other characters in terms of sticking out in this list. It is easy to see why Captain Hook would want revenge on Peter Pan, as the boy who could fly “forever” took his hand and played a practical joke by feeding it to a crocodile.

The comical and lighthearted back and forths that Captain Hook has with Peter Pan are a distinctive example of the protagonist/villain dynamic. And despite the fact that Captain Hook has homicidal intentions against the majority of his crew, his surprising soft spot for Smee displays some tenderness in him, even if it is only slight.

The crocodile appears to have a particular liking for Captain Hook, given that it has already consumed a portion of the captain in the past, and this makes Captain Hook the only villain who also has their own villainous counterpart. But despite all of Captain Hook’s one-of-a-kind qualities, his role in Peter Pan’s overarching narrative arc is not particularly significant, and as a result, he does not fare particularly well in our rating.

9. Jafar (Aladdin, 1992)

As the Sultan’s most trusted advisor, Jafar is in a unique position to quietly wield his villainy until he is able to attain his ultimate goals of ruling Agrabah and then the world. Jafar’s plans include first taking control of Agrabah and then the entire world. Just like Clayton, Jafar employs a strategy to win the confidence of those he intends to prey upon, which is, in the end, what enables him to carry out his objectives.

Because Jafar does not believe Aladdin to be a royal, the “street rat” always has to be on his toes when he is trying to persuade Jasmine that he is a prince. Additionally, Jafar’s cruel treatment of Jasmine as his future bride and slave gives him a profoundly ominous air. In addition to being the primary antagonist of the film, Jafar frequently relies on his comedic sidekick Iago to carry out his evil plans.

Because Jafar displays a psychotic disregard to all other forms of existence, Jafar’s friendship with Iago is likely the only redeeming attribute he possesses. However, there is nothing particularly intriguing about Jafar’s motivation for being evil, and his superior attitude is nothing out of the ordinary.

8. Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty, 1959)

The fact that Maleficent refers to herself as the “mistress of all evil” gives the impression that her persona does not have very many shades. Because we are never shown the events leading up to her transformation into an embodiment of pure evil, she has very little emotional depth. However, her intention to ensure that Aurora’s curse is carried out carries some very complex overtones.

This is due to the fact that her exclusion from the baptism would have been a significant slight to a woman of her standing in any medieval court at the time. And there would be no plot to the movie if Maleficent wasn’t there because the whole thing centers around trying to save Aurora from the curse she was given. In addition, Prince Phillip’s heroic “save the day” moment wouldn’t have happened if Maleficent hadn’t transformed into a dragon in the first place. Sleeping Beauty is hardly the most exciting Disney classic, and it would be considerably less fascinating if Maleficent were not to make such spectacular displays of evil throughout the film.
