They’re as dastardly as they are digital. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 animated villains in film.

For this list, we’re focusing on film villains that are completely animated and excluding those from Disney and Pixar flicks ‘cause we’ve got other lists for that. We’re also excluding anti-heroes and comic book villains.

#10: Tai Lung
“Kung Fu Panda” franchise (2008-)

It was quite the battle choosing between this badass snow leopard and the villainously charismatic Lord Shen from the sequel. In the end, we went with Tai Lung because he’s the villain that motivates Po to transform from overweight panda to dragon warrior! A kung fu prodigy in his own right, Tai Lung betrayed his master and home when he was denied the title of dragon warrior. This is one kitty you don’t want to cuddle.

#9: Darla Dimple
“Cats Don’t Dance” (1997)

Why on earth would we put a cute little girl on this list? Well, she’s actually so bratty we’d go so far as call her the anti-Shirley Temple. This spoiled child actress will do anything to keep herself in the spotlight, ranging from getting her freakishly imposing bodyguard to knock you about to flooding an entire studio. Jeez, and we thought Justin Bieber was bad.

#8: General Mandible
“Antz” (1998)

This vicious military commander believes that only the strongest should thrive and the weak should be purged from the colony. And what Mandible means by the weak are all the worker ants and even the royalty! Not above sending hundreds of soldier ants to their deaths to root out those loyal to the Queen; this insect will sacrifice anything and anyone to achieve his goals.

#7: Mewtwo
“Pokémon: The First Movie” (1998)

This was the legendary creature that all Pokemon fanatics wanted; little did we know he’d make an equally awesome villain. After discovering he’s actually a genetically engineered duplicate of a Mew and then treated as a slave by Team Rocket, Mewtwo makes plans to destroy all humans and clone all Pokémon. He may be arrogant and narcissistic, but we can’t help but be entertained by watching him toss Ash around like a ragdoll.

#6: Rasputin
“Anastasia” (1997)

This fantastical reimagining of a historical figure may come without a soul, but he does come with unholy dark powers and the voice of Christopher Lloyd instead. And what more can you ask for in a villain? Seeking revenge for his exile, Rasputin curses the family of the Tsar, but his evil plans are eventually thwarted by Anastasia and her high heels. Still, he gave us one helluva great villain song.

#5: Melisha Tweeny
“Chicken Run” (2000)

This is one farmer’s wife you don’t want to piss off. Tired of making minuscule profits working on a chicken farm, Mrs. Tweedy decides to step into the market business and turn all of the chickens into pies. It’s much more harrowing than it sounds, especially when you see the machine she uses to turn them from poultry to pie. Driven by greed, she’ll fight tooth and nail to earn her fortune – even it lands her in hot water, well, gravy, in the end.

#4: Hexxus
“FernGully: The Last Rainforest” (1992)

Nature’s dark side is unleashed in the form of this smoggy entity voiced by a deliciously evil Tim Curry. Hexxus is a demonic being sealed in an enchanted tree for thousands of years. After breaking free with the help of some greedy lumberjacks, he plots terrible revenge on the fairies who confined him. Since he’s able to change his appearance and is a master manipulator, Hexxus gets major props for having a scary-as-hell final form. Yeah, we’re pretty sure quite a few kids were mentally scarred from this.

#3: Galvatron & Unicron
“Transformers: The Movie” (1986)

One is the revamped form of Megatron while the other is the planet-sized Transformer that reformats the Decepticon leader. Together, Galvatron and Unicron wreak havoc on the universe, which includes the killing of fan favorite characters and the destruction of a few planets along the way. Considering this is the movie where Optimus Prime dies in the first act, these two are all the more terrifying. Did we mention Orson Welles voices the colossal Bringer of Chaos?

#2: The Other Mother
“Coraline” (2009)

If Hexxus gave kids nightmares, then this is the villain that freaked the hell out of adults. Coraline’s animation style and dark atmosphere already put us on edge, and then along comes this monstrosity. A devourer of children’s souls, The Other Mother dwells in an alternate world where she gives her victims whatever they desire before sewing buttons on their eyes and leaving them as nothing more than ghosts. Sinister in every sense, she’ll truly turn your dreams into living nightmares.

Before we reveal our top pick here are a few honorable mentions:
- Victor “Vector” Perkins “Despicable Me” (2010)
- Nigel “Rio” (2011)
- Sharptooth “The Land Before Time” (1988)
- Rattlesnake Jake “Rango” (2011)
- Rameses II “The Prince of Egypt” (1998)
- Warren T. Rat “An American Tail” (1986)

#1: Lord Farquaad
“Shrek” (2001)

While the Fairy Godmother of “Shrek 2” could’ve fit the profile, it’s this narrow-minded villain that tops our list. He may be an anti-Prince Charming with a big ego in a small package, but he’s also he’s hella entertaining. Farquaad will do whatever it takes to be king, just as long as he doesn’t have to do any of the work. He also kept us laughing all the way until the film’s most satisfying end.
