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.

Kefka from FF6. He is the evilest of all villains. All other evil is derived from him.

In terms of most-hated villains, it'd have to be Walton Simons.  I found that if you time a GL shot right you can kill him while he's still gloating at you - love doing that.

Another good one was William Dresari from MW4.

My favourite villian though, has to be the Director from NOLF2.  One of the best-written villains of all time!

Definitely Ba'al from Diablo II & Lord of Destruction. From deceiving Marius throughout the entire story to exploding that Barbarian gatekeeper, he's easily one of the best-developed villains in the Diablo series. Not to mention that incredible cutscene where he escapes, making off with a body made of tendrils that used to be the most powerful Mage in the land. Tendrils that are composed of awesome and win.

Oh, and the G-Man, considering that you never quite know which side he's on. The only thing that's obvious is that he isn't on yours.

In terms of hardest to kill I think it would be Gunther.


In terms of just not dieing no matter would I would think it would be Kane.

Assuming you mean Gunther Hermann from Deus Ex:

Agreed, but I didn't hate Gunther.  I pitied him for his inability to cope with the changes going on around him.  And I respected him as a serious adversary when he made his apprearance in the cathedral.

Until I learned you could make him self-destruct.

Kane and Revolver Ocelot (which now is partially Liquid so Liquid Ocelot or whatever Kojima calls it). Kane because he's Kane, one of the few villains that was smart to use a thing like the media over just guns: "He who controls the media, controls the world" it just says everything.

And Revolver Ocelot, he betrays everyone! He triple crossed the russians, backstabed the americans, Liquid and even the Patriots! I'll enjoy his death on MGS4 greatly.

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

Otehr great villians...Black Mage? ;7

Kane (C&C) - Oh I just HATED that guy. So irritating, so crazy and so persistent. Like a bloody roach.

Probably Kane, but limited to the first C&C. He's great in that game, but becomes angry and/or incoherent too often in the two newer games, which makes him lose some of his appeal.

Some runners up I can think of are Walton Simons, Bosch and the purple tentacle. :D

Serious adversary? There is a LAW right in the previous room. :p

Have you seen Hitler's death sequence in Wolf3d? It's absolutely beautiful.
