Top Ten Villains Tag

Hmm… Top Ten Villains now? Whatever shall be next? 

Eh, I won't complain :)

On to the post!





Thank you so very much Jane! Sadly I couldn't find anything to blow my school work up with so... Here it is at last :P

Rules:
1. Post the picture
2. Thank the blogger who tagged you
3. List your top ten favourite villains and why you chose them (they can be from movies or books)
4. Tag ten other bloggers.

Note: I don't actually have any 'top ten favourite villains' so I think I'll just go with 'top ten most memorable' instead :)

The Phantom/Erik.

(Phantom of the Opera)

"Seal my fate tonight. I hate to have to cut the fun short, but the joke's wearing thin. Let the audience in. Let my opera BEGIN!" -The Phantom

The Phantom/Angel of Music/Erik or whatever you would like to call this guy, lives beneath Paris teaching girls how to sing (without meeting them face to face) and then stalking them for the rest of the movie, killing whomever gets in his way... But hey! He sings nice, right?

Loki Of Asgard

(Avengers)

'Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity, that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power, for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.' -Loki


He wasn't always a villain... and to be honest many people still think he isn't one. As for me, I'm pretty neutral on the topic. I do think he was a bit misunderstood in some parts but nevertheless, he was the main bad guy in the Avengers movie and he did almost completely destroy New York with his Chitauri alien army just because he wanted to rule Earth. So... Yeah, he's a villain alright. 

..And for that reason, he gets a magical ticket to get on the list.

"Jim from IT"

(BBC Sherlock)

"I can open any door anywhere with a few tiny lines of computer code. No such thing as a private bank account now. They're all mine. No such thing as secrecy. I OWN secrecy. Nuclear codes? I could blow up NATO in alphabetical order. In a world of locked rooms, the man with the key is king." - Jim Moriarty

Do TV shows count? Ah well, I'll assume so. A villain is a villain, no matter where they are from!

Okay, so I'm pretty sure the quote just underneath the picture alone can explain why I have Moriarty on my list so I'll just leave it at that. (Without spoilers either... Yay!) 


Smaug The Terrible

(If you don't know who that is and what book he is from... I'm so sorry.)
(Hint: The main character is a Hobbit

"YOU WILL BUUUUURRRRRRNNNNNNNNNN!"  - Smaug

Smaug is probably the scariest dragon I have ever seen and/or have read about... Giant, scary, mean... How could I NOT have him on the list? (Plus, he is pretty darn awesome.)

Moving on.

The Spidells

(See Picture)

The minute Grant disappeared into the building, Summer snapped her fingers and  turned to me. "Oh no!" She tilted her head to the side and stuck out pouty lips. "I forgot. My mother laid down the law. I can't invite more than nine girls. And I've already invited... Let me see here..." She counted on her fingers. "...nine. Sorry, Winifred. By the way, I was so relieved when I heard you'd be training Grant's horse. I hate to lose."  - Summer Spidell, (Eager Star)]

...Or more specifically, Summer Spidell... I had to put down the book multiple times just because of her. She was basically the most horrible, unpleasant, popular bratty kid I have ever had the misfortune to read about... Thank heavens Winnie thought so too.



Vizzini

(Princess Bride)

"You're trying to kidnap what I've rightfully stolen." - Vizzini

He's just so funny and awesome! 'Tis a shame he (spoiler!) died...

Additional Quote: "Inconcievable!!" (Because how could I not add that one!)


Darth Vader

(Star Wars)

"Impressive. Most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your fear. Now, release your anger. Only your hatred can destroy me. " - Darth Vader

This guy is a meanie. He blew up his daughter's home planet right in front of her, and then later on he cut of his son's own hand with his lightsaber... Oh, and how could I forget about him freezing Han Solo in carbonite, also in front of his daughter and Han Solo's best buddy? 

Yah, he's a meanie alright.


Kronos

(Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief through to The Last Olympian)





“Kronos would be 10 times more powerful. His very presence would incinerate you. And once he achieves this he will empower the other Titans. They are weak, compared to what they soon will become, unless you can stop them, the world will fall, the gods will die, and I will never achieve a perfect score on this stupid machine.” - Dionysus talking about Kronos, while playing Pac-Man

Big ol' Greek Titan of Time who ate practically all his children because he was concerned that they may get more powerful than him... I'm thinking he was also a bit peckish.



Megamind

(From, well... Megamind)

"Here's my day so far: went to jail, lost the girl of  my dreams, and got my butt kicked pretty good.
Still things could be worse. Oh, that's right. I'm falling to my death." - Megamind

Possibly the greatest underrated villain there is... Seriously, why isn't this movie appreciated enough?! He has a great backstory that makes you feel really sorry for him -while also making you laugh, because the way he retells it is just so darn funny...

To be honest, I could just fill up the the whole page with hilarious quotes from the movie and forget about villain number ten altogether but I'm afraid we must now move on...


Lord Morgarath

(Ranger's Apprentice)

 'Now, he thought, it was the time for his revenge. His spies told him the Kingdom had grown slack and complacent and his presence here was all but forgotten. The name Morgarath was a name of legend nowadays, a name mothers used to to hush fractious children, threatening that if they did not behave, the black lord Morgarath would come for them.' - Morgarath's evil musings to himself.

Tall, dark robes, white hair and very very pale creepy guy with an even creepier horse? Yeah, he definitely qualifies for this list (and his horse too *shudders*). He was a great villain in the sense that I didn't like him very much. 

It wasn't really a "Oh wow, this villain sucks" not-like-him but more of a "Oh wow, this guy is really creepy" ...Meaning that if I was a character in the book, I probably would have just quit and headed over to Nope-Ville.  

(Probably didn't help that I was much younger when I actually started reading the series... If I was magically teleported to Aruluen today, I would probably just be all "Oh sweet, I totally got this!"-providing I had my friends with me of course.. If not, I would probably be waaaay more confused.)

~~~

Well, well, well... we have at last reached the end of this villainous list at last! Once again, I do apologise for it taking so darn long. The villains themselves were being quite difficult and wouldn't give me any ideas why I had actually chosen them... Nasty villainses they are.. 

Anyway, that's all (for now) folks! 

P.S: Oops! Before I forget, I should probably mention that I am nominating CJR at CJR Odyssy (You don't have to do it, I just like to nominate you for everything :P) and Zach at Zach's Abode ... Have fun!

Until next post :)

  1. Nope-Ville, I like that! I can totally imagine us casually turning up in Araluen together, and going on a couple of random adventures. xD

    1. Yeah, that'd be heaps of fun! :D (Excuse me while I go and invent a machine that can actually take us there...)

  2. A post! I really like how you included the quotes that went with the villains. Sad thing is I don't even know who some of the villains are.
