Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is All About Villains. So I'm going to choose 10 of the most villainous villains.
Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling - She is really offensive. Her grandmotherly appearance hides a cruel interior. Ick.
The Prince from Uprooted by Naomi Novik - This guy is gross because he is just focused on what Agnieszka can offer him, as a female and as a sorceror.
Hitler from Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin - Because really. He's Hitler.
Lady Catherine DeBourgh from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - She is proud and condescending and mean and stupid.
Mrs. Danvers from Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier - The scary thing about her is that she's straight crazy but she's got it well hidden.
President Snow from The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins - He appears to not even recognize people from the outer zones to be real people. They are just pawns for his sick amusement.
Sauron from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien - Most of his power is hearsay. You don't see him personally. You only hear about his power and see his frightening henchmen.
Vampires from The Passage by Justin Cronin - Any villain that is almost unkillable, feral, superpowerful, and once-human is terrifying.
Cardinal Richelieu from The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas - Once again we have the evil person with trappings of grace and dignity. Such a great villain!
Big Brother from 1984 by George Orwell - I'm not even entirely sure Big Brother is one person. I could see it being a council or something. So when you are up against an unknown entity, that's pretty scary.
