25 Most Sinister Childhood Villains Of All Time
Posted by August 28, 2012on
I love shoes as much as the next girl, but is any pair of shoes worth a life-threatening vendetta? Whether she wrote threats in the sky, threw fireballs at the Scarecrow, or sent her army of flying monkeys to attack Dorothy and her friends, the Wicked Witch of the West never stopped trying to retrieve those Ruby Slippers.
Their appearance wasn’t the only hideous things about them. Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge bullied James, made him sleep on a bare, wooden floor, and never allowed him to play with other children. Luckily, his luck changed when a giant peach appeared in their yard and the aunts got what they deserved.
You’d better not upset the Trunchbull if you don’t want to end up in the chokey! As Principal of Crunchem Hall Elementary, this dastardly villain didn’t make learning fun for anyone.
Not only was Prince Humperdinck an enemy of true love, his life-sucking machine was enough to give any kid nightmares. But with a little help from their friends, good triumphed over evil and Wesley and Buttercup were free to live “as they wished.”
Do what she says, or it’s off with your head. The Queen of Hearts love of croquet, hats, and sentencing people to death make her one of most merciless villains of all time.
This pint-sized profligate tried talking Princess Fiona to become his queen and wouldn’t take no for an answer. Known throughout the land for his cruelty to fairytale creatures and disliked by most of his subjects, everyone cheered when the dragon swallowed him whole.
This half-dragon, half-witch is arguably the darkest Disney villain of all time. Her exclusion from Aurora’s christening disappointed her. After all, not even the most evil among us enjoys being rejected. However, I think punishing the princess with death by spindle needle was a little extreme.
Scar wanted to be king no matter what the cost. He killed his own brother and tricked his nephew so he could rule over the Pride Lands.
Worming her way into children’s affections with gifts of hot cocoa and Turkish delight, the White Witch charmed her young victims before revealing her truly wicked nature.
Whether you know him as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, The Dark Lord, or – dare I say it?! – Lord Voldermort, he was the darkest wizard who ever lived.
