  • 12Tempest Shadow - My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) suggested byMitchell McDowell
    Needs to be on the list!
    When she was a kid her friends abandoned her because her horn broke off after being attacked by a bear, now that's a very heartbreaking and dark backstory for a My Little Pony villain
    her backstory is tragic, she needs to be on the list
    Hey if you lost a body limb at a very young age and your friends abandon you because of it, would you do what it takes to get that limb back?
    I cried in the theater when Tempest revealed her backstory to Twilight.

  • 13President Business / Lord Business - The Lego Movie suggested byAustin Gorham
    I think Mr. Business is a good representation of the look of mature buyers of LEGO Toys, only obsessed to see the figure completed, rather than to try something new with the bricks, as shown in the second trailer, the kid´s imagination lead the LEGO world to despair after the kid lost interest to keep playing
    No one ever told him he was special in his own way
    He just wanted people to stop messing with his stuff.
    Needs to be on the list!

  • 14Randall - Monsters, Inc. suggested byCoolZDane

  • 15Muntz - Up
    He wanted to discover a species of birds but the journey drove him crazy.

  • 16Zira - The Lion King 2 Simba's Pride

    Simba was also shown to be prejudice against her pride even though some of them weren't really evil

  • 17Lawrence - The Princess And The Frog
    He worked for the spoiled prince who was constantly taking advantage of the fact he had to work for, so he understandably to the deal as Faciler did point out he has been pushed around his whole life.

  • 18Edgar - The Aristrocats
    A Main Point About This Is The Fact He Was A Loyal Butler And He Was Always Kind To His Boss And The Cats Which Is Why They Trusted Him So Much And He Didn't Even Know There Was A Possibility That He Would Get The Inheritance, So He Deserved That Money More Than The Cats Did, It Might Not Justify Trying To Abandon Them But You Could Understand Him
    Not justifying his actions, just his motives as it would be frustrating to be losing money to animals who can't even spend it, but Edgar was stupid since he could have just worked for the cats and still got money out of it since cats can't do very much with money anyway.
    NOTHING justifies animal cruelty!
    How would you feel if you worked for a rich lady for years but found out that you are getting her inheritance but her cats are getting it first.
    Also as an old man he didn't want to wait until the cats died since he would probably would have died of old age by then and didn't want to keep working as a Butler until then

    He just wanted to be a musical hero in the sight of Mexico.
    Well there's a reason he poisoned Hector for his songs that night. They'd been performing on the road for months, when Hector got homesick and he packed up his songs. Ernesto didn't want Hector to leave as he needed his songs, but Hector had made up his mind.
