    By the way, I'm tall, so I guess I'm just inherently evil and scary. Plus the fact that I have scars... Holy simoly, I should be arrested right now and taken down by some dashingly perfect character that's beauty will captivate all, and can use all the weapons in the universe, and has magical sparkling hair and teeth. And can paint with all the colors of the wind.

    I seriously wish that people would get away from the over-the-top clichés for villains and use a better way to write them, like for instance, following the examples on this list. Or is someone else going to jump onto me for forcing my opinions on them and "oppressing" them?
    I agree with Astinus. The best villain is one you never see coming. It's easy to assume that the villain will dress in black and have a scar over his eye, but what if your villain turns out to be the main character's own brother, or best friend.

      I think little spammer dude was just saying what he likes about villains not that it would make a good fanfic villain as well as other ppl who wrote cliche'd ones...

        don't worry about the spammer troll. you know as well as anyone else on this thread that a combination of motives and psychology crate a great villain. If you have played Kingdom Hearts, you will instantly recognize Riku as one of the best possible villains. he is a close friend of the protagonist who becomes an enemy through circumstance and manipulation, even though he is essentially after the same thing. all he is missing is a conscience. in the end, he is defeated and redeemed when he sacrifices himself to seal away evil. he has a clear and sympathetic personality and the player can easily relate to him, often much more than the blissfully ignorant main character. riku even has a scene where he tries to replace the main character, calling him a "delivery boy." this is what makes him a great villain and a great character.

        if you would like an extra example, send me a message and I can show you a rough draft for my story, where an alternate reality Giovanni (epic originality fail) is the villain who was corrupted by power

        We're no longer worrying about the 'spammer troll' because the thread is over 3 years old! Please check the date of the last post in threads before posting please, as bumping threads over a month old since the last post is against the rules, never mind 3 years. =p
