I was bored so I decided to post this. What is your favorite villain of all video games. And I'm not just taking about a cool boss or whatnot, but someone you learn to actually hate in the game and was happy to finally kill him at the end of the game.

My favorite would have to be John Irenicus from Baldur's Gate 2. That guy was an absolute pain.

Ohhh..he was so a real villain. He had everything.I actually pittied him..Too bad you couldn't make him see reason. :(


He lost all pity from me when he stole my soul. :p

I think that the best written villian is Kreia (or Darth Traya, same person) from KOTOR II.

Yeah, Irenicus was definitely the best portrayed classic villain in any game. But that personality was mainly thanks to the voice of David Warner - the guy is the paragon of superbly delivered, menacing villainous monologue.

And SHODAN, easily. Dominant and twisted in the first one, manipulative and subtle in the second, yet the same flesh-hating personality all the way through.

Along the same lines but more humorous than SHODAN, Deidranna from Jagged Alliance 2. "Elliot, you IDIIIIIIOT!" :D

This is yet another question where I can't give an exact "This one" answer, but as one example... Hector LeMans.

I thought he was a bit wussy to be honest. The other guy, Domino Hurley, was better.

Maybe, but I never saw Domino as an evil guy, but rather as a slick person, kind of like a used cars salesman. And, well maybe Hector wasn't all "Embryos my breakfast, fetus is my feast" either, but sort of cold, calculating and generally one of those who really aren't interested in anyone else's fate except for their own.

I'm surprised noone mentioned GladOS.  :nervous:

Just one favorite?!?!?  Blasphemy.  Many favorites.

Favorite Villain Fight... the best one I can think of right off the bat would be Lavos from Chrono Trigger.  It was challenging, the music rocked, and it had a -great- lead-up.  Ganon from Zelda: OoT would be a close second.  It just felt really epic (the whole tower and especially his final form).

Favorite Villain to hate... would be Tycho from Bungie's Marathon series.  Its a pretty intricate story, but the short version is... he is an AI who switches sides, kills your AI, kidnaps you, and teleports you around to do his bidding as he manipulates you into having to kill your allies.  If he were to be placed as a character into the Halo series, he would be somebody like a Covenant AI who was Cortana's rival - and he would get in your head and stuff.

Pfft. Kreai was irritating as hell and you could see her betrayl coming for several galaxies away. It was so OBVIOUS she was the villain. and she gets no simphaty from me since she is a old crazy loon.


AS far as Irenicus goes - as much as deranges he was, all that was the result of his curse and his desperate search for a cure. Yeah, the actions he did were dispicable and the punishment was severe. But I started to think it might have been a bit too severe. He was desperately trying to get what he lost, but he didn't really enjoy any of the destruction and pain he caused. And yes...brilliant voice acting!

I'll agree with you that the betrayal was pretty obvious but i still think the character itself was well written.  most of the KOTOR Series characters were, IMHO.

I was bored so I decided to post this. What is your favorite villain of all video games. And I'm not just taking about a cool boss or whatnot, but someone you learn to actually hate in the game and was happy to finally kill him at the end of the game.

  
Since you put the caveat that we had to "kill" them at the end, that restricts us from quite a lot of very good villains who's fate is uncertain/keep surviving.  I'm going with Mobius and the elder god from the Legacy of Kain games, even though Mobius has been dead since the original (Time travel for the win!  Also for the really confusing!) and you don't really "kill" the elder god (Kain did drive him off at the end of the last title in the series).

Heck, I'll throw Raziel into the mix, as he first reveres and then comes to despise the man he was before his vampiric rebirth/subsequent death/rebirth-as-an-unkillable-specter-that-eats-souls, to the point where you become your own killer (I renounce you. :Splortch!:). 

Curse the apparent death of the series, now I'll never know how it all ends.
Everything is better with monkeys.  Even pie.

That is the best first post I have ever seen.
