Obviously I added a couple to the list. :P I read somewhere on the DBB about this. You go somewhere to vote and Dr. Breen was up against General RAAM and Breen lost by 0.6% of votes......"BULL S***!"

I hardly ever knew who General RAAM was. I play GoW, but General RAAM never ever stood out to me. Just another bug to kill. It was rather uneventful.



Who did I vote for? Hmmm that was tough. I voted for Sigma.

Too.. many... good... choices...

I'll go with Kefka because I beat him the other night. He's easy these days, yet still epic.

Edit: also dancing mad. dancing mad is the best boss theme ever

Dr Breen.

He's a tyrant who tries to delude himself that he isn't.  Almost Shakespearean, in a way.

Theif Bot is my last choice because (in D2) he's so easy when you know how to deal with him (I lead him to a dead end room and drop enough smart mines in the room's exit that he won't escape in one piece.  I usually only have to do it once.)  In D3 he was so easy there wasn't really any point to put him in the game.

I think I need to come up with a top 5.

0. Targoss- eee-eeeee-iyeeee-yeeehhh-YYYYYYYEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!1!!!!111!

1. Sigma- Because he always comes back a little more corrupt the next time and his fortress stages are pretty cool (except X6. That one is INFURIATING!!!) and they,ve got some cool music.

2. Ridley- Because he always comes back too and he always has the same badass theme!

3. Dr. Breen- I have to say that he is a loveable character. He sounds so right and believable, but you know that he is standing for such a twisted thing. But he seems to be a guy that you just want to know!

4. Dark Samus- Persistant and badass all around. It also turned your bounty hunter friends against you and then killed them, including the most awesome of them all, Rundas.

5. Thief Bot- D2 gave the most fun chases ever. D3's was pathetic, but I changed around its sounds....

6. Dr. Robotnik- Pingas!

Too me, the word 'villain' conjures up more than just a hard boss or thief-bot, he needs to be planning evil on a much larger scale.  Theif-bot may steal your headlight, but beyond that, he's just a bot.
Smart people look like crazy people to stupid people.

Other. Lord Vayne Solidor from Final Fantasy 12. The true image of a villain, he was seriously screwed up in the head. Evil stuff. :D

GLaDOS all the way. Partially demented and crazy, yes, but still has a very cold and calculating robot mind in her that's actually kind of scary when you think too hard about it.

Besides, the only computer-based villain that could probably top GLaDOS is HAL, and as far as I know, he doesn't appear in any video game that I've heard of.

Some of these others would make for good runner-ups, though. Dravis is one of them, though I kind of always found him to be a bit reckless and overconfident, putting too much support on too simple a solution that may or may not work.

But then again, I guess that's kind of a requirement with villains, isn't it? :P

Everyone on my top *cough* 5 had evil intentions. Sigma wants to rule the world, Ridley wants to destroy Samus and the Federation, Breen was explained, Dark Samus wants to corrupt the galaxy with Phazon, Theif Bot is probably the most evil one of them all, wanting to steal everything you have. Robotnik...."Pingas!"

Targoss is the Devil's Advocate and wants to steal your soul!

Aw c'mon, Robotnik's really kind of a laugh as a villain when you really think about it. :P

Yeah... he's way too overconfident, for one thing...
And by the time they actually started developing his character (~Sonic Adventure to Sonic Heroes I think) he was never the actual villain...  In Sonic Heroes he was only really in Team Chaotix's story (as their client).  Every time someone actually fought him he was actually Metal Sonic in disguise (I'm assuming he was Metal Sonic in Egg Hawk too, since everyone else seems to think so).
