    1Marv & Harry - Home Alone suggested byDaniel Lewis
    They a a pair of incompetent burglers who constantly get outsmarted by a child
  • 2Gaston - Beauty And The Beast
    Using a bow and arrow instead of his pistol!
    But in the movie he stabbed beast with a knife
  • 3Lex Luthor - Batman V Superman Dawn Of Justice
    He's the worst character of all time
    And actually trying to have a Superhero with no powers and has a moral code to kill Superman over hiring someone like Deathstroke to do it.
    His plan of Creating doomsday to kill Superman almost killed ended up killing him and the whole planet
  • 4Snoke - Star Wars Franchise suggested byDaniel Lewis
    Chose to place Reys lightsaber on his chair and placed too much trust in Kylo Ren. Both these factors led to his death
  • 5The Queen - Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs suggested byDaniel Lewis
    Her plan to get rid of Snow White involved feeding her a cursed apple which she knew would not really kill Snow White and that the effects would be negated by true loves first kiss. She also chose to position herself on a cliff edge during a storm which led to her downfall
  • 6Thanos - Marvel Cinematic Universe
    Why the downvotes? Thanos is actually an idiot. Accept it
    Oh and during the final fight in endgame. The mistake Thanos made that caused his downfall was that he failed to check the gauntlet before doing his snap since Tony took them out
    He also gave the mind stone to Loki, which resulted in him losing it, out too much trust in Ronan, and constantly abused Nebula to the point where she defected
    He did not kill all the avengers when he had the chance, messed with powers he did not fully understand, and his decision to destroy the infinity stones not only backfired but led to his death as it alerted the avengers
  • 7Biff Tannen - Back to the Future suggested byHenners250
  • 8Judge Doom-Who Framed Roger Rabbit suggested byElisabeth Nunez
    He created The Dip to kill toons but he IS a toon
    The fact that he wears protective gloves was a way to foreshadow this.
  • 9Apocalypse - X-Men Apocalypse
  • 10Palpatine - Star Wars Franchise
    Then torturing Luke in front of Vader and then in Rise Of Skywalker doing almost the same plan that failed in the first place
    For one thing his plan in the prequels could have failed if he didn't succeed in turning Anakin but even then Anakin was planning on killing him if things happened differently with Padme and Obi Wan
  • 11Elliot Carver - Tomorrow Never Dies suggested byDaniel Lewis
    Tried to start a war between England and China just so he could get exclusive broadcasting rights
  • 12Kent Mansley - The Iron Giant (1999) suggested bymac121mr0
  • 13Cruella De Vil - 101 Dalmatians suggested byDaniel Lewis
    Hired incompetent minions Horace and jasper to kidnap puppies and relied on them too much
  • 14Robert Callaghan - Big Hero 6 suggested byDaniel Lewis
    Yes and he failed to acknowledge that the micro bots he used to construct a portal could also get sucked into the portal
    Do I need to explain this? His entire plan was nonsensical. Just because his daughter Abigail got lost in that portal thing, doesn't mean you have to take it out on Alister Keri..
  • 15Scar - The Lion King
    His decision to brag about killing Mufasa when he has Simba cornered and trusting the hyenas to kill Simba in the first place when he could have done it himself
  • 16Wicked Witch Of The West - The Wizard Of Oz
    Yeah but water as her weakness cane out of nowhere as there was no foreshadowing of that weakness
    but in hindsight I can understand her not banning her minions from using water since they use fire Alot and it would let them know it is her weakness
    If she knew water was her weakness then she should have made it a thing to stay away from it
  • 17Dawn Bellwether - Zootopia suggested byDaniel Lewis
    Made the rage serum used on predators look too much like blueberries which Judy took advantage off. Also confessed her crimes in a boastful way which Judy secretly recorded
  • 18Doctor Doom - Fantastic Four (2015) suggested byjgga
  • 19Evelyn Deavor - Incredibles 2 suggested byjgga
  • 20Plankton- The Spongebob Squarepants Movie suggested byJ VK
    Seriously? Plankton is a tv character. He does not count
  • 21Richard Strickland - The Shape Of Water suggested byDaniel Lewis
    Was very abusive to the asset which caused him to lose his fingers which were replanted but later got infected. He chose to shoot Elisa for no reason which led to getting his throat slit
  • 22Dr. Evil - Austin Powers franchise suggested byTyler Puszczewicz
    I dont think so. He is supposed to be a parody of.Blofeld so he is portrayed as an idiot from the start
  • 23Ultron - Avengers: Age of Ultron suggested byjgga
    He murdered quicksilver
  • 24Titan - Megamind suggested byJessykosis Mahase
  • 25Aliens - Signs suggested byHenners250
    No because the plot twist about their weakness being water is one of the worst plot twists in cinematic history. It is never elaborated on why they invaded earth in the first place
  • 26Billy & Stu - Scream suggested byHenners250
  • 27Myles Standish - Free Birds suggested byTommy Lopez

  • 34Loki - Marvel Cinematic Universe suggested byDaniel Lewis
  • 35Admiral Alexander Marcus - Star Trek Into Darkness suggested byTheDeparted1408
