I loved it! :D Besides, I don't consider Elphaba to be a villain anymore after Wicked . She's just misunderstood...

On another villain-related note, I'm not sure whether to include Light and L from Death Note . L isn't really a villain because he doesn't have any malicious intentions in regards of him wanting to catch Kira (aka, Light). He's basically just another detective who wants to bring a criminal to justice, but he has recently stooped to questionable tactics.

Light is presented as the main protagonist of the series which would make L a "villain", but he himself is evolving into more of a villain protagonist. He starts out as an anti-hero who also wants to bring criminals to justice, but the saying goes, "absolute powers corrupts absolutely". He's pretty much lost sight of his original goal--to kill all criminals in the world--and is now just doing whatever he can to make sure he isn't caught. I'm onto episode 20, and things have gotten a LOT more complicated.

Maybe that's what I love about this series--the hero isn't the hero, and the villain isn't the villain. They're both after the same goal and both use whatever tactics they think are necessary to achieve that goal, no matter how morally unethical. Nothing is truly black-and-white; it's gray-and-gray.

Oh, and there's plenty of "tension" between them too, lol (the hero and the villain always have the most "tension", don't they?).
Here are their pictures (L is on the left, Light is on the right):

I just finished Death Note ...I could post an entire essay about Light and L, but I won't in case anyone on here hasn't seen it...it's just...amazing.

And everyone's favourite possessed little girl, Regan, from The Exorcist.

Okay, I HATE it when pictures like that are posted so unexpectedly! I'm going to try to be wary about clicking on this page.

I think this is a villan that most of the British members might know, then again, I might be wrong.

His name is Lord Fear and he is the main villian for a game show called Knightmare. Well when I say main villian, Only from series 5-8.

I didn't get a chance to see this picture?

And you're one to talk, Cluedokid. I'm reminded by the initial post in your Disturbing Pictures thread, with the man who peeled his face off. *shudders*

I keep forgetting most of you aren't obsessed with horror movies as much as I am. :oops:

I need to see more horror movies. But any-hoo, in the midst of my gushing over Zuko and Azula, I forgot to include pictures.

First, this is Azula:

And this is Zuko during his emo phase (he was just too cute during that time):

I've always liked Kaa from The Jungle Book:

I love Sterling Holloway's voice for Kaa!

If you read the actual book, you'd see that Kaa is actually less of a villain than he is portrayed in the movie. In fact, Kaa is one of Mowgli's mentors. He is mostly known for devouring the monkeys who are the vilified ones for their greed and mischief.

In one of the film versions, Kaa devourers the main antagonist.
