Favorite villains and why I love to hate them:
Armarantha is the queen under the Mountain in Sarah J Maas A Court of Thorns and Roses series. Armarntha is your typical badie, tormenting people, curses, challenges, riddles. Yes she could have been more original or a but more crazy but I liked that she was kind of an old style badie. Simple and evil that’s all I needed.
Queen Levena from The Lunar Chronicles:
Levena made it to one of my all time favorite Villains. She has a great back story and truly creepy and messed up mind. Levena is not someone I would want to mess with. The only complaint I had about her was she was a bit too powerful.
Joe from You by Caroline Kepnes:
Joes is definitely on my love side of this villains you love to hate. I mean c’mon a psychopathic, stalker/serial killer, who loves books? How could I not love Joes character? Seriously Joes one of my favorite narrators and I just loved him even though he was sick and twisted. Does that make me sick and twisted? Probably but I can live with that.
Joffrey from Game of Thrones:
So don’t throw things at me but I haven’t read the book yet *cowers* I know I should have read them first but I never got around to it and I finally caved in and starting watching the show. Oh god it’s so good and Joffrey’s a little murderous shit that I love watching. No spoilers people I’m only up to season 5!
The Joker from Batman (Mainly Heth Ledgers Joker but I’m hopeful for the new Joker)
The Joker is my favorite villain of all time, he’s funny, clever, psychopathic? (well that could be argued XD) and is he really that bad? I’m mean he tries to stop Batman a lot and people get hurt a long the way but when do we start blaming Batman as well? I mean if he didn’t exist would the Joker exist still?
Also Harley Quinn becasue, well its Harley Quinn!
Victor from Vicious by V.E Schwab.
I just finished this book and I LOVED it. Victor and Eli are so sensational. There beliefs what makes someone a hero and villain the things they do for good and revenge. I don’t see Victor as a villain but he’s not a hero either, there is a lot of gray space between the two and he fits snuggle in the middle leaning heavily to the villain side. The only complaint I had about this book is I would have liked a few extra chapters to know what happens after but the ending was great anyhow and there is talk of a second book so hopefully we can get that!
Dolorous Umbridge from Harry Potter.
Oh you thought I was going to say Voldemort? haha Think again. Dolorous has to be one of my most hated characters ever, I don’t even love to hate her it’s just hate, pure cold I wish you would die and become a zombie so I could kill you again.
J.K did an amazing job writing her in such an unlikable way I can’t find one redeeming quality about her and couldn’t stand what she put the children of Hogwarts through.
Oh Bellatrix another one of my favorite villains. I’m not ashamed to say that one of my favorite moments of the books and movies was her singing about killing Sirus black. I may sing a long when I watch the movie IM NOT SORRY yes Siruis’s death is sad but I Bellatrix is so good and being bad.
Who do you love to hate? I’d love to know movie or book wise. Or do you prefer the Heroes to the Villains?
