I have a feeling this has already been hashed out, but sue me. Who are your favorite villains and why? They can be from any media. My top five list would be: Dexter Morgan, Dexter: You know he's the bad guy, but you gotta love him. Except at the end. Clyde Shelton, Law Abiding Citizen: You root for him, but you feel bad for doing so. He's the real villain in the movie, but he really makes you think about how bad the American justice system really is. Heath Ledger's Joker, The Dark Knight. This one is self explanitory, this is the best portrayal of a villain I've seen. Nobody else even comes close. Vaas, Far Cry 3. He's truely crazy, and you can't not love him, even as you know you have to kill him. Handsome Jack, Borderlands 2. He's everything a villain shouldn't be, and that's why I love him. He's one of those characters who genuinely thinks they're the hero, and he is kinda right, if you think about it. He is trying to bring law and order to a lawless planet... By killing everyone and making a boatload of cash.
