100 Greatest Video Game Villains Of All Time
95. Electro – Spider Man 2: Enter Electro
Electro is one of Spider-Man’s greatest foes and became even more formidable towards the climax of this PlayStation outing. After a plot involving various other Spider-Man villains, Electro used the power of the Bio-Nexus Device to become Hyper-Electro, a supercharged, giant, version of himself that was near invincible, only defeated when his own newfound power takes out the generators powering it.
94. Ansem, Seeker Of Darkness – Kingdom Hearts
Originally, Sora believes his best friend, Riku, to be the central antagonist of the game, until Ansem formally introduces himself, having possessed Riku early in the story. His place on this list is earned by his desire to steal the hearts of seven Disney Princesses, as well as the revelation in the sequel that he was in fact a heartless of an imposter, not the true Ansem.
93. Pinstripe Potoroo – Crash Bandicoot
Pinstripe was perhaps one of the craziest bosses from the Crash Bandicoot series. Not only was he the head of Cortex’s power plant, but he was his personal bodyguard too. Speaking in a strong Brooklyn accent, Pinstripe was more than a little reminiscent of Tony Montana in Scarface, especially when spraying his office with his Thompson SMG in an attempt to kill Crash.
92. Master Of Darkness – Heart of Darkness
The ruler of the Darklands and a demonic sorcerer, the Master of Darkness only has one goal, to conquer all other dimensions outside of his own Kingdom. His powers begin the game by causing a solar eclipse on Earth, before his minions kidnap Andy’s dog, Whiskey. Appearing as a shroud of darkness with red eyes and 3 horns atop his head, he was the exact reason Andy was afraid of the dark.
91. Kombayn Nikoladze – Splinter Cell
An incredibly powerful man as President of Georgia, Nikoladze hid an extreme hatred of America, leading to him instigating an information crisis that allowed him to seize the oil resources of Azerbaijan. His actions eventually led to a declaration of War against Georgia by America, not that that stopped him attempting to set off a ‘Special Atomic Demolition Munition’, codenamed The Ark, in the heart of Washington.
