Another Top 10 Satisfying Villain Deaths in Video Games

Ooh that felt good. Welcome to and today we are counting down our picks for another top tensatisfying villains deaths in video games.

For this list, we’ll be once again looking at the villains in video games we were ever so happy to see bite the dust. As you might expect this entire countdown is one big spoiler, so you have been warned. Also if you don’t see an entry you thought should have made the cut, be sure to check out the original top ten.

#10: Pandak "Baby" Panay

“Just Cause 2” (2010)
No matter how many times we do it, there is just no feeling quite like taking out a brutal dictator who looks like Kim Jong-il and considers himself untouchable. Despite ruling over the island of Panau with plenty of military might at his back, it become clear that Panay has lost control of the situation given the amount of insurgency groups rising to take control of the island for themselves, something we and Rico Rodriguez are happy to assist in. In the most Hollywood of clashes, Panay and Rico exchange blows while on top of a missile, which the despot ultimately loses, leaving him to on a one way ticket to boom town. Hasta la vista Baby.

#9: Handsome Jack

“Borderlands 2” (2009)
There could not be a more fitting end to the CEO of the Hyperion Corporation and would-be ruler of Pandora. As the Vault Hunter, you’ve had to endure Jack’s non-stop taunts, death threats and bouts of insanity throughout the entire game, and while his selfish nature is ridiculously entertaining it still feels so good to obliterate his plans and watch him give his final bitch. You can either listen to him ramble about how he is the hero that Pandora deserves or just shoot him then and there. Not so handsome anymore aye Jack?

#8: Osmund Saddler

“Resident Evil 4” (2005)
What’s better than taking out the leader of a bloodthirsty cult turned hideous infected monster? Taking him out with a friggin Rocket Launcher, that’s what! Saddler had his eyes set on world domination through the use of Las Plagas, a parasitic life form that made for some creepy as hell boss battles. He turned villagers into chainsaw wielding psychopaths, kidnapped the President’s daughter and even mutated into one disgusting looking abomination. Unfortunately for him no amount of mind-altering McGuffins can stop the suaveness of Leon S. Kennedy…or you know, the explosiveness of a rocket launcher.

#7: Devin Weston
“Grand Theft Auto V” (2013)
After spending so much time with our three majorly flawed protagonists and overcoming insurmountable odds together, who honestly could choose anything but Option C for the game’s finale? Out of the douchebags that Franklin, Michael and Trevor have come across Devin stood out as the worst. Far too rich for his own good, spineless and as vain as they come, the boys finally got their revenge after kidnapping him, locking him in the trunk of a car and pushing him off the edge of a cliff. It may not be the bloodiest of endings but by the build-up is so pitch perfect that by the time that car heads over the edge it’s almost beautiful.

#6: Uberto Alberti

“Assassin’s Creed 2” (2009)
Karma truly does come back to bite you in the ass, or in this case stab you multiple times in the chest with a hidden blade. Once a friend to the Auditore family, this member of the Templar Order betrayed his friends and arranged the public executions of Ezio’s family for the sake of his financial wellbeing. Regardless of whether he regretted his actions or not afterwards, he doesn’t have much time to dwell on it as Ezio soon takes his vengeance by assassinating him in public. Guess money can’t save you from everything after all.

#5: Mecha-Hitler

“Wolfenstein 3D” (1992)
There is very little emotional investment or moving narrative with this particular death…just the sheer thrill of knowing you just blew the Fuhrer into bloody pieces! Effortlessly effective in its premise, the very idea of having to enter a firefight with a Hitler who happens to be armed with a mecha suit is just too hilarious not be a fun time. After gunning your way through endless amounts of Nazis and undead mutants, you finally come to the piste de resistance; unloading clip after clip until the leader of the Third Reich is packed with so much lead he practically melts. Classic.

#4: General Shepherd

“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” (2009)
He might think of himself as a patriot, but the actions of this one soldier are pretty far removed from the American Dream. After losing his faith in his nation following the deaths of 30,000 unrecognised soldiers, Shepherd sought to escalate the war between the U.S and Russia in order to give the American people something to rally behind. To this extend he goes as far as to kill members of his own Task Force, including Ghost and Roach. It all culminates into a final confrontation to avenge your fallen comrades, with one of the most satisfying knife throws ever.

#3: Imlerith

“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” (2015)
Out of all the members of the Wild Hunt, this was the one we were most looking forward to drive a sword through. Not only did this elf relentlessly chase after Ciri, but his participation in the battle of KaerMorhen let to the death of Geralt’s mentor and father figure Vesemir. As you can imagine we were ready for a sword swinging showdown, and while Imlerith’s strength is undeniable, he’s still not powerful enough to survive getting is face toasted inside his helmet like a hot pocket. Nice hammer you got there…it’d be a shame if someone bashed you with it…

#2: William Carver

“The Walking Dead Season 2” (2012)
Survival is everything, though some individuals choose to take it too far. As Clementine ventures into the undead infested world, she and her new group find themselves in the clutches of Carver, the merciless leader of a sanctuary whose disciplinary actions often led to someone either dying or getting horrible maimed. Just ask Kenny. However he doesn’t stay on top for very long. As the sanctuary is overrun with walkers, Kenny decides to get even by breaking apart Carver’s skill with a crowbar. Whether you want to stay and watch the brutality is up to you, but either way it’s truly a messy way to go. And we loved it.

#1: GLaDOS

“Portal” (2007)
She is one of video game’s greatest villains, and the fact that her defeat left you feeling wholly satisfied as a result just adds to her psychotic appeal. All throughout the various lethal tests you’ve had to endure, GLaDOS has been there mocking you every step of the way. Always trying to have you killed, lying about the cake, messing with your companion cube, by the time you had reached the heart of the Apeture Science Facility you were done being petrified and ready to put this A.I in her place. After melting her various A.I Cores, we can only watch in delight as the machine with a god complex faces the reality of losing. At least until Portal 2.
